There are laptop features that can help boost work productivity by upto 30%. Here are a few cool facts about the latest laptops that you didn’t know about.
With the lockdown situation showing no signs of improving, work-from-home is slowly becoming the norm. Depending on your home situation, this could either be a blessing in disguise or a curse, as some professionals prefer working in an office environment.
One of the drawbacks of working from home is not being adequately equipped with a laptop that helps with your productivity.
If you’re using a 3+ year old laptop, there may be a number of features that you’re missing out on. At first glance, these features may not seem like a big deal; however, over time, they can make everyday usage a lot easier and help enhance productivity by as much as 30%.
So the question arises: should you upgrade to a new laptop? The answer is a definite yes! With major releases by chipset and processor manufacturers in recent times, laptops have come leaps and bounds and are more affordable than ever before.
We’ve highlighted some of the latest features of the best laptops under 30,000 INR that you might be surprised to hear about.
#1 USB Type-C/ Thunderbolt 3 Port
The standard USB Type-A port, although a technological marvel for its time, has come of age. Most laptops today come with the USB Type-C ports. These new ports are a level above, when it comes to data transfer, and a whole host of other new functionality.
Some laptops even let you charge-off the Type-C cable. Which means you don’t have to bother with multiple messy cables and a heavy charging brick? The Type-C cable is also the same one that comes with some new mobile phones.
So you can, in a sense, kill two birds with one stone. Additionally, data transfer over Type-C is significantly faster than standard USB Type-A, so you’ll be moving files and data a lot faster.
#2 AMD Ryzen 4000
Laptop processors are, without a doubt, the one component that has advanced more than any other. This is great news for consumers as you get more productivity without really having to pay extra.
This is especially true if you are constantly having to multitask or are into heavy operations like rendering or even gaming. The recent AMD Ryzen 4000 processors are a technological marvel with more cores and faster single clock speeds.
The processors also consume very little power, which means significantly longer battery life. All this translates to exemplary performance and responsiveness like you’ve never seen before. Some of the top laptops under 40,000 INR come equipped with Ryzen processors.
#3 PCIe SSD
Most older generation laptops came with mechanical hard drives (where you store all your data on the laptop/PC). Most new-gen laptops are equipped with SSD (solid-state drives), which are a whopping 300 times faster.
This upgrade will see significantly faster boot times and significantly smoother user experience. You will no longer have to wait ages for apps and other programs to open.
Google Chrome, MS Office, or even Zoom will literally take seconds to open, while your laptop or PC will run smoother and faster than ever before if you have SSD storage.
