Tips to buy a Mini Laptop

What are the points to be kept in mind before buying a mini laptop?

Mini laptops have come to the limelight recently. However, before buying a mini laptop you should keep in mind some points. These are:

  • Storage space and memory

  • Keyboard

  • Screen

  • Battery

  • Wi-Fi, audio and webcam

Storage space and memory

Mini laptops do not come with a huge storage space or memory. You are offered a storage space of 512MB to 1GB of memory and 60-160 GB of hard drive. Therefore you should look for one which comes with a portable hard drive.


When you are going to buy a mini laptop, first check the keyboard. If you have large hands you might not be comfortable using the portable keyboard that comes with the mini laptops. Therefore, you should try out various models before choosing the one whose keyboard is right for you.


The mini laptops come with various screen sizes so it is another important point to keep in mind, that you need to go through the various models and decided which screen size will not hurt your eyes.


Mini laptops generally come with 3 cell battery but there are some which come with 6 cell battery. If you run the mini laptop for a longer period of time then go for a mini laptop with 6 cell battery, otherwise go for a 3 cell one.

Wi-Fi, audio and webcam

Always go for a laptop that come with a built in Wi-Fi because the ones that do not come with it, need a broadband card and that might pose a problem. Before buying check the audio quality because though the mini laptops are miniature in size they should have awesome sound quality. Also remember, to buy a mini laptop with Web Cam because mini laptops are essentially used for internet surfing and this should be an integral part of any good mini laptop.
