Using Gizmodo Laptop Reviews Before Buying Your Laptop

Gizmodo laptop reviews are extremely useful when you’re planning to buy a new laptop. In fact, you won’t need to consult any other reviews or reference sites, because you’ll know everything that’s new in laptop technology on Gizmodo – and even some of the old.

One thing you’ll notice when you visit the site is that your laptop reviews come along with other tech stories in the news, and some amusing stories that deal with laptop technology and how fast it is evolving. At one time, there was that story about TV host Jimmy Fallon inviting Bill Gates to his show, and hiding his laptop because it embarrassed him to show it to the man who invented Windows.

Fallon’s gadget was a MacBook.

Gizmodo laptop reviews will give you a comprehensive report on how each new model differs from its older versions, and how it would fare when compared to other brands. That in itself is useful enough, because you won’t need to go too far in your research before knowing the upsides and downsides that every new model comes with.

There, you will find what is said about the latest “ultra-slim” model, laptop-tablet hybrids, and even the smallest power adapters that would help you save space on your laptop bag and make it a lot lighter.

Here’s a summary of what you can expect from the laptop reviews. Gizmodo comes up with a list of criteria by which to judge whether you prospective device can rank above the rest in its class, or be at the bottom of the heap. The review tells you what the laptop is for (i.e. for gaming, for business, for running graphic-intensive applications, for casual use) and who would benefit the most from its features. The reviews would also mention the specific design qualities that make the laptop better than the rest.

The reviews are refreshingly honest and in-depth. They are also user-centric, although they also enable you to take a look at the technology from the manufacturer’s point of view. In one review, as an example, Gizmodo begins a presentation of Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 by saying it has sized up and is ready to run against the MacBook Air as a laptop-tablet hybrid, with a detachable keyboard. And then it goes to state how the development process went on from the manufacturer’s standpoint, especially how designing sought to improve on flaws of previous models to come up with something a lot smoother in terms of features.

That may seem a bit promotional but for the techie types who would want to see how problematic or defective features on past models have been corrected or enhanced, such an angle would help them decide on whether or not to get the product, or at least, to look forward to its future vesions.

In this case, the Surface Pro 3 is compared to its predecessors, the Pro and the Pro 2, and then compared to other brands of hybrids available. You can actually make a list of the changes and the corrected features, and from there make an intelligent, informed decision on whether to buy or not.

You’ll learn a lot more when you get to the “Like” and the “No like” part of the review. It goes on to mention the things that you would like about the item, and the things you would not like, if there is any. The review makes a recommendation, telling you about whether buying the laptop is a good idea, or whether it would be better to try to look for something else.

The model’s specs come in last, which is quite handy because despite all that you’ve read about it, the specs could still be the deciding factor.
