Find the perfect PC laptop computer for your family, work or school when you shop at Sears
There are as many types of laptop computers as there are brands, and the one you purchase will depend on what you want it to do for you. You could purchase a PC laptop, notebook or even one with an Android platform compatible with your phone. When you think of your lifestyle and how the computer will fit in with that, you have to consider what you'll want your computer to do for you. Whether you're video chatting with friends, doing schoolwork, keeping track of the family finances or working from home, you'll want a computer that fits all of your needs.
One of the first things you'll want to consider as you decide what PC laptop is right for you is the size and weight of the machine. If you are a business traveler, this is probably a top priority for you. No one wants to lug an extra 10 pounds through an airport, and a laptop takes up space in your carry-on bag. However, if your main goal is just to give you mobility around your house, size and weight will be less of an issue. The screen size is also an important consideration. It's one thing to have video chats on a small screen and quite another to try to create a complicated spreadsheet on one. Some laptops are extremely sophisticated, while others are designed for a specific purpose. A netbook, for instance, is generally smaller in size and is used mainly for internet-based applications.
You'll also want to determine what operating system you want. The most common type you'll see is Windows. However, some notebooks and tablets even run on Jelly Bean, which is the platform Android devices use, and you'll also see Intel laptops if you're partial to Intel processors. Laptop computers are just like traditional PCs in the software and other features that are available, so you don't need to worry about learning a whole new operating system with your laptop. Whatever you most enjoy using, you'll be able to find on a laptop.
The software you plan to use on your laptop will help you determine what kind of machine to get, too. Some laptops come loaded with the software programs that you need. Many PC laptop users choose to load up their machine with educational software, too, to enrich their lives. Depending on what your plans are, you might want to choose a computer with a high-quality microphone, camera and whatever other accessories are important to you.
Laptops are a popular choice not only for business travelers but for students, entrepreneurs and educators. When you're ready to purchase your laptop, look to Sears for the best brands and the latest technology.
