Take Life on the Go with a Laptop
For life on the go, a laptop can keep up with your demands wherever you are. With the functionality of a desktop computer packed into a portable device, a laptop lets you connect to the web, watch movies, play games, edit photos and so much more. Whether you’re looking for a standard laptop, 2 in 1 laptop or MacBook, Best Buy has a wide selection from ASUS, Microsoft, Samsung, HP, Toshiba and Apple to suit your needs.
The processor is the brain of the laptop, interpreting and performing all its commands. Intel and AMD both make processors that are tailor-made for different needs—from basic tasks like sending emails to demanding ones like simultaneously running multiple applications. To ensure you’ve got the right processor for your needs, consider individual specs like number of cores, overclock ability and speed.
Screen Size and Resolution
Size matters when it comes to laptops. A larger screen will likely make the device heavier but will give you plenty of room to work and play. A smaller screen size will make it lighter and more compact, perfect for taking on the go. Most laptops have a screen resolution of at least Full HD (1920 x 1080), and there are many options even higher resolution, even 4K!

There are many great options available that offer great processing power, amazing screen resolution and responsiveness and are designed to handle a wide variety of purposes.

2 in 1 and Hybrid Laptops
A 2 in 1 laptop (also called convertible or hybrid laptop) combines the functionality of a laptop with the convenience of a tablet. Equipped with both a touchscreen and a keyboard, a 2 in 1 laptop can transform from laptop to tablet in various ways—by folding back, rotating or detaching the screen, depending on the model. A 2 in 1 is perfect when you want both a laptop and a tablet without having to buy two separate devices. If you are looking for a versatile machine, consider a Surface Pro, a Surface Laptop or a MacBook.
