In today’s list I tried to gather a list to determine the best value fastest laptop for the start of 2016.
To understand the concepts of this list to determine what would be the best value fastest laptop, I feel that it’s important to breakdown what are the main points of this list, how they were accessed and what were the mininum requirements for the products to be on this list:
Obviously on our best value FASTEST laptops, the speed matters A LOT. In fact, speed here matters more than anything else, but, it’s in fact a rather subjective topic, since a lot of different aspects influence your laptop’s speed:
– The processor your notebook has is the key factor to determine how fast it goes. All laptops listed here are powered by intel i7 processor. The number of cores is also a key factor for your laptop speed, and in this case most of the intel 7 processor are quad cores (have 4 cores). Althought it can happen that some Intel i7 come only with 2 cores, you can easily check this information by typing the name of the processor on google, which will most likely take you to a website with specifications which describe the number of cores. Click here for an example.
– RAM stands for random access memory, and it affects your laptop performance since ram can access data 10 times higher than the hard drive, but it focuses on accessing recently used data. Ram has a key role on determining the laptop speed and all laptops on this list have 12 GB of ram or above, which is enough for most activities like gaming, video editing, 3d rendering, running virtual machines or any other heavy program that you might need.
– The better your video card is, the faster your computer will run. That’s true for most cases but it applies specifically if you are working with software that require extremely high computing speed for real time processing of graphics. To put it short, that’s most useful if you work with games and with software oriented to the animation, engineering or architecture industries.
There are other less important values that determine your computer speed such as, the hard drive and ram clock speed, but since our laptops have been released in a similar date and at a similar price, there is not much difference involving these values to determine our best value fastest laptop for 2016.
The other important instance that helps us to determine the best laptops on this list is value. There are certainl a number of laptops that cost over $2,000 but, they are not THAT MUCH different than laptops under $1,500, so I set the value of $1,500 to be our ceiling while determine the best value fastest laptop.
Here is your list of best value fastest laptops for 2016:
