When you're out and about

Whether you love to travel all year round, or like working from different places, anywhere you can use your laptop and get cracking becomes an office. So a compact laptop with good battery life can go a long way.

Performance

The higher the number associated with the processor, the faster it is. So you can complete your tasks without any interruption. A device with a powerful processor is a great pick, as it gives you good speed and efficiency.

Battery life

To keep your battery healthy, keep it well ventilated by making sure the fan on your computer isn't covered, and avoid letting your battery run down to zero. When not charging, try to keep your battery level at over 40%, and when you're charging it back up, make sure the battery level reaches above 80%.

Flexibility

Compact, adjustable 2-in-1 laptops are your best friend when you're travelling. Fold them into a tent or use them like a tablet. They're versatile, stylish and simple to use. The biggest perk? They're lightweight and don't take much space in your bag.

Laptop or desktop

Planning to carry your device around uni? Choose a lightweight and sleek laptop. Like gaming and love a big-screen experience? A desktop is what you'll want. Want the best of both worlds? Connecting a gaming laptop to a second screen could be the answer.
