How We Make Our Decision

How can you know which laptop is right for you when there are so many options? Are you unsure how to select the best gaming laptops that will suit your needs? Is it suitable for your financial situation? Is it equipped with the specifications you require for your gaming needs? Our staff can assist you in finding the greatest fit for your needs and budget, but here are some pointers to help you understand the process.

Software Requirements

The majority of software has both minimal and recommended requirements. If you intend to run a certain application, try to provide our agent with the recommended parameters. If you can’t discover these specifications, be prepared to define the laptop’s intended use. We can find you a laptop without this information, but there’s no way to know if we’re selecting the best option for you! Gaming, CAD, VR, and picture and video editing software are all examples of applications that may require a higher-end laptop.

Several properties are frequently included in recommended specifications, but not all of them are always defined. Here’s a closer look at some of these specifications:

Apple or Microsoft

Determine whether a Microsoft or an Apple operating system is required. This is usually specified in the minimum and recommended specifications for the program you plan to use. It is sometimes necessary to use particularly specific operating systems, such as Windows 10 Professional or a 64-bit operating system. It’s crucial to include this information because an application that requires Windows 10 Professional will almost certainly not run on Windows 10 Home. Many software packages are compatible with most operating systems, and choosing between Microsoft and Apple is often a matter of personal opinion.

Monitor Selection

Do you have the need for large displays to go along with your purchase?  Large monitors can be provided with your laptop purchases, but this may influence the hardware requirements, so it is important to communicate this up front.  Additionally, if large monitors are required, a desktop may be your best-fit solution (which we can help with too!).


 Flexibility Can Save

Do all laptops need to be identical?  For events like eSportsGraphic works and gaming tournaments, having a standard hardware configuration levels the playing field.  However, for large quantity orders, it is sometimes the most cost effective option to provide some hardware with better specifications.  For example, if 100 laptops are needed with a minimum of an i3 processor with 4gb of RAM, and we only have 70 available, it is much more cost effective for us to provide 30 i5’s with 8gb of RAM than it is for us to buy 30 new i3s.  You will not be up-charged if we upgrade you to a higher specification due to inventory constraints, so in most cases this is a good thing as you will receive some higher end laptops with small addional cost!  However, if you absolutely need all units to be identical, just let us know, and we will make sure that happens.

 Last Minute Questions

Do you need spares?  What if more people show up to your event than planned?  What if some incident occurs and some of the laptops are damaged?  What if one of the users messes up your software configuration and their laptop no longer works just like all the others?  Can you live with being short a few laptops, or do you need extras just in case?
