    High performance laptops

    Switch out your tired old desktop for a laptop that packs a punch. From super-fast processors to dedicated graphics cards, a high performance laptop will give you the power you need to work and play, wherever you like.

    What makes a laptop powerful?

    First there’s the processor or CPU, which manages all your commands. A faster processor will make a more powerful laptop. Secondly you have RAM, which is your laptop’s short-term memory, the more RAM you have, the better your laptop will be able to juggle multiple programmes and apps. Finally you have the graphics card or GPU, this bit of tech is dedicated to what you see on screen, and the more powerful it is, the better the graphics will be.
