Unlike the laptop for businessmen or professional, selecting a home laptop is surely one of the toughest jobs as no one expects a home laptop to be less powerful than a full featured desktop. The Home laptop doesn’t need to be carried around frequently, so they can be slightly heavier than business laptops but they need some good resolution display, fair amount of RAM and a satisfying processor. But again if you are thinking of carrying it frequently, then a good battery and light weight would be the two major deciding factors. And if you wish to do video editing or graphics design, you will require a high performance video card as well. And then if you are looking for a budget laptop then the whole scenario will be completely different. This can be as tedious as buying a new home or a car! Here are some laptops which we think are best suited as a home laptop.
