Displays are made up of pixels, microscopic squares of color that together make up an image. Full high definition or HD displays have just over 2 million pixels, arranged as 1080 x 1920 pixels. This is nearly 6 times more than a standard display, and offers a dramatic improvement in sharpness and clarity. Screens with 4K have even more pixels – 2160 x 3840, which totals almost 8.3 million pixels, nearly 4 times more than full HD, producing a superior picture, whatever the size of the screen it’s displayed on.
For image and video editing, CAD design, movie buffs and, of course, gamers the stunning clarity and crispness, vibrant colors and unparalleled details make getting a 4K laptop a no brainer.
However, the 4K market can get confusing so we’re here to help.
What to look for when buying a new 4K laptop?
- Processor: Processor speed is measured in gigahertz (GHz), and generally the higher the better, more powerful and with greater efficiency. Aim for 2HGz and up is a good rule of thumb.
- RAM: A 4K system can get by with 4GB of RAM, however 8 or 16 provides more space, whilst with 32 you’ll probably never need to add extra.
- Battery Life: For a laptop this is always going to be a crucial win/lose situation – powering down mid way through work or, worse, a fast action gaming session.
- Screen Size: With a 4K machine, it’s a case that bigger is better, but even with a smaller screen, the advantages are well worth it.
- SSD vs HDD: When choosing a 4K, our advice is to look for a SSD drive. Offering faster load times, these are ideal for gamers and action fans.
