All the power and performance of a desktop computer is packed into a mobile, wireless solution. Laptops let you stay productive and entertained while on the go.
Marrying the tablet's compact design with laptop functionality, the convertible laptop is a shape-shifting device that flips, pivots, swivels and slides to be a flexible mobile computing option.
For when you need an edge on the digital playing field, gaming laptops offer amped up processing power and dedicated graphics cards for eye-popping visuals.
The newest, lightest, and most compact Mac notebook ever. The new 12” MacBook is 13.1mm thin, 0.92kg light, and features 9 hours battery life. Available in Gold, Silver, and Space Grey.
An incredibly portable and respectably powerful laptop computer. It features a full-size, backlit keyboard and a solid state (flash storage) drive that ensures fast startup and load times.
Constructed from a single piece of aluminum, this lightweight and powerful machine is loaded with advanced features that ensure every operation is carried out with smooth precision.
Ultrabooks are an exceptionally mobile way to work and play. The lightweight design creates optimal portability while the wireless connectivity and long battery life adds to the ultrabook's allure.
All of Google's innovative services and apps are streamlined into the ultralight Chromebook. It contains a web-based operating system and cloud storage among other powerful Google-driven features.
Refurbished laptops are stringently tested units equipped with all the same features as their newer counterparts. Best of all, these laptops go easy on your bank account.
The processor or CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the brain of your laptop. Single-core processors are ideal for basic tasks like browsing the web. Dual-core processors are designed to let you simultaneously multitask with basic applications without slowing down your computer. Quad-core and Hexacore processors rival some desktop computers in performance, allowing you to simultaneously run graphics-hungry 3D games, processor-crushing video editing applications, and seamlessly play HD media content.
Random access memory (RAM), also known as system memory , provides space for your computer to process data to help applications run efficiently. If you have less than 2GB of RAM, you might find that the more you try to multitask, the slower your machine performs. Everyday use will require less power than intense gaming or photo editing, and you don’t want to pay for RAM that you won’t use. We recommend at least 2GB of RAM for basic tasks, while lightning-fast multitasking and more intensive applications require 8GB of RAM or more.
Documents, software, vacation photos, movie collections, music files, and games can take up a large amount of space on a laptop's hard drive. Accordingly, opt for a laptop with at least 500GB of storage space. A solid state drive (SSD), although a bit more expensive, can help a laptop boot up faster, wake up more quickly after sleep mode, and reduce load-up times for games and other programs. For example, a game that typically takes 20 to 30 seconds to load may come up in 10 seconds or less with a SSD.
A wired connection refers to built-in ports on your laptop such as speaker jacks, USB ports, and HDMI input. Wireless connections allow you to connect to just about anything from your mouse, external speakers, to a printer. A wireless connection offers amore flexibility without being tethered to cables. The most common wireless technologies include WiFi (wirelessly browse the web), Bluetooth (wirelessly connect peripherals), WiDi (wirelessly transfer your laptop screen to a TV), and DLNA (wireless transfer content through a network).
The screen size of your laptop will influence your viewing experience and determine how easy it is to carry around. A small screen size will make your laptop lighter and more compact, perfect for people on the go. A larger screen will make a laptop heavier, but give you plenty of room to work and play. If you watch lots of movies, play games, or need the desktop real estate, a 15” or 17” laptop is recommended, but it won’t be as portable as an 11” or 13” model.

For life on the go, a laptop can keep up with your demands wherever you are. With the functionality of a desktop computer packed into a portable device, a laptop lets you connect to the web, watch movies, play games, edit photos and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a standard laptop, hybrid laptop or Ultrabook, Best Buy has a wide selection from ASUS, Samsung, HP, Toshiba and Apple to suit your needs.
The processor is the brain of the laptop, interpreting and performing all its commands. Intel and AMD both make processors that are tailor-made for different needs — from basic tasks like sending emails to demanding ones like 3D games. To ensure you’ve got the right processor for your needs, consider individual specs like number of cores, overclockability and speed.
Size matters when it comes to laptops. A larger screen will likely make the device heavier but will give you plenty of room to work and play. A smaller screen size will make it lighter and more compact, perfect for taking on the go. Most laptops have a screen resolution of at least HD 720p (1280 x 720), but to make the most of your entertainment, Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution is ideal.
Coined by Intel, Ultrabooks are essentially thin and lightweight laptops with high performance that’ll breeze through a variety of tasks. Because of their slimness, they’re not usually equipped with extras like optical drives, but offer ultraportability for those on the go. Windows 8 touchscreen Ultrabooks feature the touch capabilities of a tablet, so you can swipe, tap and pinch your way through pages. Ultrathin laptops like HP’s Sleekbook boast the super-slim design of an Ultrabook but have slightly different specs to a true Ultrabook.
A convertible or hybrid laptop combines the functionality of a laptop with the convenience of a tablet. Equipped with both a touchscreen and a keyboard, a convertible laptop can transform from laptop to tablet in various ways — by folding back, rotating or detaching the screen, depending on the model. This two-in-one combo is perfect when you want both a laptop and a tablet without having to buy two separate devices.
