5 Crucial Features To Look For When Buying Your Wife Or Girlfriend a Laptop

I sell computers for a living and I’ve seen lots of guys with good intentions commit sin in the name of buying their spouse, girlfriend, daughter, mother or other special ladies in their life a new laptop. If you’re a guy planning to buy a laptop for a special woman in your life, take heed of these 5 crucial features to look for in the perfect laptop for that female dear to your heart.


When guys shop for a laptop size isn’t a big deal – in fact, as far as we are concerned “the bigger, the better” – but most women frown on using large laptops and are starting to look at standard 15.6″ laptops as though they are big dinosaurs of the computer age. Most women are active and prefer to have a laptop that they’ll be able to carry around throughout the day and they’d usually want something small enough to fit in their purse [if they can]. When shopping for a laptop for that special women, try to opt for a 14″ screen or less – and if your hands are tied, don’t go over 15.6″.

Processing Power

If my wife has taught me anything about women, it’s that they have us guys beaten in the multitasking department. Portability is important for most female laptop enthusiasts, but don’t make the mistake of sacrificing processing power for portability – and stay away from netbooks unless they are asked for specifically. The new Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 laptops and notebooks are great options, but you’ll want to make sure that the laptop you choose has at least a two processing cores. This will allow you to have a device that will work for longer period of years. While the service of the best Dell Laptop repair in London is certainly reliable, you definitely don’t want to bring your laptop there. So it is really ideal to buy a laptop that is durable.

Battery Life

What good is having a powerful and portable laptop if the thing runs out of battery life and needs to be charged up every two hours? I can’t emphasize enough how important battery life is when buying a laptop for your lady friend. So long as the laptop that you choose has upwards of four hours of battery life you’re in the green, but if that special lady is unable to get through the day with minimum recharging, you’ll likely be heading back to the computer store to buy her another laptop in the near future.


We’ve covered power, portability, and battery life, but when choosing a laptop for that special woman in your life, it’s best that you don’t overlook the aesthetic qualities of the laptop. Much like shoes, the laptop that you buy your lady should be functional, but also stylish. Stay away from odd colors, weird box-like designs, bland colors, and clunky features when shopping for a laptop for a woman.

Bonus Features

It’s kind of hard to box this last category up, but the laptop that you buy your woman should be able to handle any and everything that you know she’ll be into. You’ll want to make sure that the laptop you choose for you lady friend has a webcam, more than enough USB ports, a CD and DVD drive, wireless capabilities, an HDMI port, nice sounding speakers, and anything else that you can think of. Make sure it has the “works”.
