If you’re in the market for a new laptop, either because you’re working at home or need a replacement for the aging device you bought a few years ago, you’ll be faced with an often bewildering choice.
There’s plenty to choose from. Ultrabooks, ChromeBooks, mid-range laptops, creator devices, laptops specially tagged for business… the list goes on. But you probably haven’t considered a gaming laptop. Why would you? You want a PC to work on not to blow away aliens or conqueror fantasy worlds.
But hang on…
Gaming laptops are bursting at the seams with high-performance components which allow them to execute all of your favourite games with ease. But, have you ever wondered about using all that powerful hardware for work? It seems strange to say it, but gaming laptops can actually make the best laptops for business.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of utilising a gaming laptop for business.
It’s understandable that you wouldn’t consider a gaming laptop for business uses, but once you take a closer look, you’ll wish you never dismissed the possibility. Here’s a few of the features which make gaming laptops the best laptops for business.
It’s common knowledge that gaming laptops include the best processors available, how else would they be able to handle mass-multiplayer online games with huge open-worlds? Due to you being unable to upgrade the individual components of a laptop, it’s worth investing in one that has a high-performance processor from the start.
The power of a gaming laptop processor will turn your PC into a portable workstation. Never let your need for portability compromise your need for power again – get the best of both worlds. Whether you’re working with photoshop, websites or spreadsheets, the processor is capable of handling anything you throw at it.
Gaming laptops offer graphics which are far superior than any of the standard ‘business laptops’, which makes viewing images and working with highly detailed artwork not only easy, but enjoyable. If you’re working with high definition images or video, you’ll notice the difference in quality immediately. When coupled with the more powerful processor, you don’t have to worry about large file sizes or the video quality.
The HD display will also make working with spreadsheets and other documents much easier as smaller text and symbols will be much easier to see. You don’t need to go to Specsavers, you just need a better laptop.
One of the most annoying things is when you’re right in the middle of a piece of work and you lose internet connection, leaving you helpless or even worse, you lose what you’ve been working on. Gamers face the same emotions when they get disconnected mid-battle, which is why gaming laptops are designed to minimise this possibility.
The best gaming laptops will be equipped with advanced connectivity making them extremely efficient for work. Depending on which laptop you opt for, it may even include the new Wi-Fi 6 which is much faster and provides much better connectivity than the Wi-Fi you’ll be used to.
All-in-one business tool
The main reason why gaming laptops make the best laptops for business is their all-in-one build, a quality that is often taken for granted. When setting up either a gaming rig or a workstation, many people don’t consider all of the extra peripherals and accessories they would need to buy to complete their setup.
The beauty of a gaming laptop is that due to it being designed for portability, it also incorporates all the peripherals you will need to work on the go. A high-quality screen, keyboard, trackpad and speakers are all built into the design, ready to use.
Of course, you’re not limited to these built-in features either. If you’re looking to setup your laptop on a desk, you can get a new mouse, keyboard or even additional speakers which will connect via the laptop’s multiple ports.
