The year 2013 was great for new launches. We saw some new laptops with interesting features see the light of the day. This year is expected to be better. So if you’re contemplating when to buy a laptop and which one, we’re here to offer you a helping hand.
Firstly, decide if you want to buy tablets, touchscreen hybrids or an ultrabook. While they might confuse you are a buyer, each of them has its own clear use and cannot be replaced with one another.
