Terms I considered when choosing my four laptops:

I also made sure that it has a number of memory card slots and Video ports so that the laptop can be connected to a bigger/TV screen.

2. CD/DVD- I have ensured that all four laptops I have chosen have a CD/DVD drive, not just this but I have made sure it is a DVD writer drive as well so that CD’s and DVD’s can be copied and burned.

3. The hard drive – I have made sure that all the chosen laptops have a large hard rive and the speed of the hard rive is fast so that the laptop runs smoothly and quickly.  

4. The memory – I have ensured that all our of the laptops have a minimum of 2GB of memory.

5. The processor – I have made sure that all the chosen laptops have a fast speed processor and that they do not perform less that 2 Gigahertz.

6. Size – I have ensured that all the chosen laptops are above 15inches in screen size because it is not so big that it is taken up a lot of space but not to small that you cannot use the laptop efficiently.
