Keep reading to learn more about finding the right new, used, or Certified Refurbished HP device for you.

HP Laptop vs. Desktop Computers

One of the first decisions you'll have to make when shopping for an HP computer is whether you want a laptop or desktop. Laptop computers are lightweight, portable, and can run off a battery for hours when fully charged. This makes them ideal for commuting or traveling.

Desktop PCs, on the other hand, take up more space and need to be plugged in to operate. That being said, many desktops are more powerful than laptops, have larger screens, and may be better-suited for hardcore gaming or graphic design.

Is Laptop Screen Size Important?

Screen dimensions are a basic way to gauge the size and weight of a laptop. If you expect to be carrying a laptop from place to place most of the day, a smaller 10-13-inch laptop will be easier to take everywhere you go. Laptops with screens that are 14-16 inches are medium-sized. They're still small enough to carry around from place to place, but a bit heavier. The larger screen can make using office software easier. There are larger models with screens of 17-inches or more but these will feel less portable.

Which Type of Computer is Best for Gaming?

Traditionally, laptops have been inferior to desktops for gaming due to a lack of processing power, limited options for adding hardware, and smaller screens. However, laptops with better graphics capabilities are on the market and can run most games.

What's the Difference Between a Laptop and a Netbook?

Netbooks are mini-laptops primarily designed for basic applications and web browsing. Most have less computing power than laptops.
