Shop Today's Best Laptop Computers

Which laptop features are important?

Once you’ve made the choice to purchase a laptop, look for key features like display resolution, storage and wireless access that will help make your computing experience go smoothly. Laptops with high-resolution displays are ideal for editing photos, playing games and watching movies, while touch-screen laptops provide a more hands-on experience. As far as storage, you can choose the right combination of capacity and speed with a solid state drive, hard disk drive or a hybrid hard drive, which offers the best of both. Staying connected to the Web, your office and other devices is a snap with a laptop or Chromebook that has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth®. The fewer cables you need to carry with you, the easier remote work sessions can be.
