Laptops for working on the go
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.
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.
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%.
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.
This is the component that takes a laptop from mainstream, to game and stream. Enjoy latest games on your laptop or PC with a premium graphic card. It speeds up the rendering of images and videos, so you have a quality gaming experience.
Laptops and PCs for families
Get together, it's movie time
A perfect pick for your kids' online classes and homework, and for all your shopping sprees and streaming sessions, these laptops are absolute all-rounders. Super secure and budget friendly, check out our great range of family computers.
Performance and size
A 4GB RAM or higher with a dual or quad-core processor is great for light multitasking, browsing or streaming. A 10” to 16” inch screen size is easy use on your lap or home desk. Choose a bigger screen if your family are movie buffs.
Sharing the computer with your little ones means ensuring it's safe. Set up dedicated limited-access account for your kids that have parental controls. And most importantly, teach your child cybersecurity.
Does your little one love to lie down and learn? Fold your laptop into a tablet easily. Or, if you like to catch-up on your shows while cooking, use the tent mode to keep it on your counter and enjoy streaming.
Laptops and PCs for working from home
Think how you use your computer. Pick a high-end, latest processor that can handle complex apps and tasks if your work demands. Or go for an entry-level device for video chats with your team and light work.
Like big screens or prefer something nifty? You can pick either. Set up a dual monitor if you like to work with multiple or larger displays. When your mood changes, just disconnect and use a laptop to work from the sofa!
Working from home means working out of your kitchen, lounge, hallway and even the bathroom (it's true!). Choose a convertible laptop to work seamlessly wherever you are in your home.
Laptops and PCs for studying
Make learning easy
Computers are a vital bit of equipment when it comes to school-work and university. So it's important to get the right one that will keep up with all your education needs.
If you're off to Uni and still unsure, our guide will take you through some key things to consider when choosing your new laptop or PC.
Writing, researching, creating reports and everything in between. A computer with around 4 to 8GB RAM and a processor up to Intel i5 or Ryzen 5 processor should do the trick while also being budget-friendly.
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.
Laptops and PCs for designers and photo editors
Express yourself through your work
Design. Edit. Create. Bring your visions and innovations to life with powerful processors, crisp resolutions and touchscreen options. These computers are just what you need to keep up with your talent.
A high-end processor with turbo boost, and at least 8GB RAM helps you breeze through even the toughest tasks. And if you're looking for a laptop with a large amount of storage, it will let you access your files super fast.
Clarity is king when it comes to designing and editing. A 4K HD screen of 15 inches or more shows you the sharpest visuals and truest colours so there's no room for imperfection.
