Things to Look out For:
If you want to take your free laptop out and about then it goes without saying you won’t want to be carrying non-essential weight. With that in mind, make sure you choose a small, light laptop, or even a netbook if you’re going to have to carry it with you often.
Essential For: Portability
The processor is how quick your laptop can run, it’s measured in Gigahertz (GHz). This is another feature to consider if you’re running a lot of processes, or if you want your laptop to run particularly quickly. With our mobile phone and free laptop deals you will have choice between a single or dual core processor, dual core is better as it means two processors running together to optimise performance.
Essential For: Speed, Gaming
RAM (Random Access Memory)
RAM stands for random access memory and is related to how many simultaneous tasks your computer can run. If you’re a gamer and want a smooth game play experience, or if you you’re planning to run multiple programmes and applications at once then the more RAM the better.
Essential For: Speed, Gaming, Multitasking
The hard drive, is of course how much data your computer can store, much like a mobile phone this is measured in either MB or GB. If you plan on storing a lot of video, photos etc you’ll want to go for a large capacity, somewhere around 500 GB. Media files tend to fill up a hard drive the quickest like films, video footage and high quality pictures that are taken with your mobile phone.
Essential For: Storing movies and music, installed games, downloading.
Laptop Screen Size
If you are getting a free laptop with your contract phone for watching films, viewing images or other multimedia purposes you’ll want a good screen. Gaming and movie watching are much better on larger screens, so look for 15” and above.
Essential For: Multimedia: movies, games
What features should you look for when choosing a Mobile Phone + Free Laptop Deal?
Smartphones can be quite a mine field with so many different options, here’s what you should be looking for when taking out a new contract phone to get your free laptop:
- Type of operating system: Do you want iOS, Android, Windows or Blackberry. Both have their advantages, iOS is very simple to use and a clean interface. Android is slightly less intuitive but has more capabilities and is used on more phones. Windows is growing in popularity and has a very modern flat feel which is easy on the eye.
- Camera size: If you’re planning on taking photos with your new contract phone then camera size is important, typically the more megapixels the better the quality photo but lens, zoom and over quality should be taken into account.
- Video recording capability: If you want a phone that has a HD screen, then it might be a good idea to get one that can record in 1080p so you can make the most of it.
- Email and applications: Are emails and apps important to you? Apple and Android excel here, with Android handling Gmail very well.
Laptop CPU’s – What You need to Know
At the heart of your PC lurks the CPU (Central Processing Unit). This is effectively its brain and is responsible for executing all the instructions you throw at it. It runs programs, handles tasks and crunches numbers. CPUs may look much the same, but they have different personalities and abilities. Consequently, different grades suit different types of computer users. Unfortunately, making sense of them all can be a bit of challenge. But have no fear, this simple guide will help you sort your Intels from your AMDs…
CPUs – how to tell them apart
Once upon a time CPUs were judged on speed. However, today a better guide to performance is the number of processors, or cores, they have. A dual core processor is more powerful than a single core processor and so on. Of course, the performance of a PC is not down purely to the grade of its CPU. Other factors such as memory and graphics cards also come into play, but the CPU does govern the overall performance.
Who will make the processor in my free contract laptop?
There are two main suppliers of CPUs: Intel and AMD.Intel is the world’s largest chip maker and has been defining influence on the entire home computer market. Its chipsets are well regarded and powerful.
A one-time licensee of Intel, AMD is now its keenest rival. It has its own range of CPUs, and while they currently fall behind Intel in power they generally compensate by being more affordable.
What is the offering?
Intel’s current PC processor offering is the Core family. The Core i3 is an entry-level chip designed for workaday PC tasks like web-browsing, email and word processing. The step-up second-generation Core i5 adds more processing poke and has visual support in the shape of on-chip hi-def graphics.
This makes it more suitable for entertainment and gaming. Intel describes this newcomer as a Smart Processor. Using Turbo Boost technology, it can deliver extra performance when you need it and increase energy efficiency when you don’t. Core i5 CPUs also support advanced multi-tasking in the shape of Hyper-Threading technology. This allows the processor to work on several jobs at the same time. Core i5 processors make a good choice for both desktop gaming PCs and ultra-thin laptops.
