Tips for testing laptops

Size and weight

The size and weight of a laptop are important in making the right choice. Do you take your laptop with you on the go for study or work? If so, a light 14-inch laptop is recommended. Do you mainly use the laptop at home? You may have a greater need for a larger model. In photos, a laptop sometimes looks smaller or larger than in real life. Come to our stores to see which size and weight suits your use.

Keyboard and touchpad

All actions you perform on your laptop are done via the keyboard and touchpad. That's why it's important that typing on the keyboard feels comfortable and that the touchpad works properly. You can test different laptops in our stores. You'll experience what it's like to type long reports or scroll through web pages.

The colors and viewing angles of a laptop screen are best experienced in the store. It's difficult to know whether you like a screen, purely based on specifications and images. Do you prefer glossy or anti-glare matte? Come to our store and experience the screens in real life. This way, you can be sure that your favorite Netflix series or holiday photos look amazing on your new laptop.
