Buying any kind of computer equipment can seem daunting if you don’t feel like an expert in IT. It’s a considerable financial outlay and the item (or items) will often be used a great deal, for important tasks, so you want to ensure you get it just right.
The first decision most people have to make is ‘what type of machine do I want?’. This is usually a choice between desktop and laptop so a simple look at when and where you might want to use it will largely make that choice for you. If it’s a desktop you opt for, there are so many different types available, from ones perfect for basic home use, to high-powered office workstations to gaming PCs that will transport you to other worlds.
So the choice of laptop might seem easy by comparison. But there are several options in this area too and we understand that you might need some help making the right choice for you. Take a look at these key points to consider and if you need some more help, don’t hesitate to contact our expert team who will be happy to help:
The standard laptop
Even in today’s tech-obsessed world, there are still a lot of people who will only ever require a ‘basic’ computer. The problem is, so many get convinced they need more power, more memory, better graphics and so on; it’s very easy to get upsold. At HST, we believe in selling the right product to the customer and as such, you’ll only ever pay for what you need. We have a broad range of standard laptops to choose from starting at just £230 for this HP EliteBook 8470P laptop.
The multi-function laptop
Most of us seem to have an array of IT equipment from desktops, to laptops, to tablets, to smart phones and frankly, it would be hard to use all of it to the best of its capability all the time. Fortunately, you can now get hybrid machines which will offer two functions such as this HP EliteBook X360 2-in-1 convertible laptop. It basically doubles as a tablet thanks to its touchscreen abilities and the fact it will fold back on itself too.
The tailored-to-you laptop
At HST, we are really mindful of the fact that everyone has different needs and certainly different budgets. That’s why we really try to ensure that we can offer exactly what it is you need so you only pay for something that suits you. This is mainly fulfilled by the fact that we have the ability to add in any extras you might want as we build our laptops to order. That way, we can ensure you have everything you need and won’t pay a penny more for things you don’t need. The prices you see all include everything you require to have a fully functioning laptop, you can just upgrade certain elements as preferred. Take a look at this Dell Latitude E7470 laptop for example which starts at £350. As standard, it includes an Intel i5 6th Generation processor, 4GB DDR and has a HDD capacity of 256GB. But if you’d like more memory, for example an upgrade to an 8GB DDR, this is available for just £34.99 extra.
The benefit of getting a laptop from HST is that we offer refurbished machines so that they are all built according to each individual’s order. This allows us to pass significant cost savings onto the customer in comparison to them buying brand new, but without compromising on quality. Our technicians are fully qualified and every machine is tested and verified prior to being sent out – they also come with 12 months’ warranty to give you complete peace of mind.
