When I started providing Amazon virtual assistance while I was a student in college, I started with a tablet because that was the only thing I could afford at that time. But gradually, I began to realize that this is not my road to go down. I went ahead and got my first laptop and trust me it was the best decision I made as an Amazon virtual assistant. There are loads of things to consider when you are looking for the best laptop for Virtual Assistant and trust me it is one hell of a task on its own.
When we talk about laptops it wouldn’t be wrong to say that they are armaments for Virtual Assistants. They offer a great deal of storage; they provide you with a high speed for your extremely rushing tasks and you get to see things in a better resolution. Here, I will be guiding you about some of the best laptops which you can have as a virtual assistant. But first, let’s take a look at things that should be considered.
Things That Should Be Considered Before Buying the Laptop
1. Battery Life
You will be needing something that goes a long time without dying and as an assistant, the requirement for a longer and better battery life becomes an utmost necessity.
This is where the RAM comes into play. RAM dictates how much work can be done in a given time frame. Your capability for opening more applications at a single time will make tasks to be easily carried out.
3. Central Processing Unit (CPU)
There are so many processors from so many manufacturers available on the market that sometimes it gets pretty confusing which one to buy and which one to not. But always root for AMD or Intel Processors. If you live in a humid environment, then AMD wouldn’t be a good choice.
There are also other factors to look at like portability, resolution, keyboard, sound, storage but the above mentioned three should be your main concerns.
HP Spectre x360
- It consists of 16GB LPDDR4 (3200MHz) RAM
- It has a 1.3GHz Intel Core i7-1065G7 (quad-core, 8MB Intel Smart Cache, up to 3.9GHz with Turbo Boost) CPU
- It has 13.3-inch 4K (3840 x 2160) AMOLED screen
I have put this on top of my list because it puts competitors to shame because of its speed, portability, and sleek style. Although it falls under the expensive category of laptops but trust me, you won’t be disappointed. The best thing I love about this laptop is its convertibility and its sleek design which takes its stylishness to the next level. It also has a stunning 4K screen which would make you do your work with more interest. It has ram which is double of its priors and comes across as the best option for all-round work.
HP Pavilion x360 2020
HP Pavilion x360 2020 ($718 – $900)
- It consists of 8 GB of RAM
- It has a 1.0GHz Intel Core i5-1035G1 processor CPU
- It offers a 14-inch touch screen along with full HD (1920 x 1080 pixel) resolution
Although this laptop might not be able to keep up with HP Spectre x360 2020. But in this price range, this one is the full package. It is going to be the best choice if you are looking for something less expensive than HP Spectre x360 2020. It comes with a 256GB drive which wasn’t available in the previous model and also holds a sim card slot for 4G and Type-C port. Also, it offers up to 11 hours of battery life which is going to be a boom.
Acer Aspire 5 Slim Laptop
- It consists of 8GB DDR4 RAM.
- It has Intel Core i5-1035G1 Processor.
- It offers a screen of 15.6″ Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution
It offers the same core i5 processor as that of the HP Pavilion which is less powerful than the Hp spectre. But the best thing about this one is it falls under $650-price and there is no compromised quality given the price. This laptop has a 512GB NVMe SSD and also comes with NVIDIA GeForce MX350. Also, it comes with a 512 GB SSD which would be helpful for you if have loads of applications on your computer.
Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch
- It consists of 8GB RAM
- Apple M1 chip with 8-core CPU, 8-core GPU, and 16-core Neural Engine
- It offers a spectacular Retina display along with True Tone technology
If you are an apple person. This would be the best choice for you. Apple products are often expensive concerning the features they offer but there is no denying that nothing offers more durability and a longer lifespan than any apple product. It has been observed that many clients ask if you have an Apple MacBook Pro.
