When working from home it is necessary to have good tools so that productivity and efficiency are not affected. If you work with new technologies, it is necessary to have a good laptop to carry out tasks in the best conditions, avoiding, as far as possible, future problems.
Characteristics of a laptop for teleworking
When you work from home or have to move often for work reasons (travel and others) having a laptop that responds becomes essential. But you have to take into account certain factors when choosing one:
In a computer, it is convenient to take into account certain elements that determine its usefulness:
- Graphic card.
And also the operating system and applications that are going to be used for business management.
Minimum requirements of a computer for telecommuting
If, as we have said, the success of developing a good job is based on these elements, we are going to see what is most appropriate in each of them:
Operating System: It is a set of programs that enables things to work. Thus the laptop interacts with the user and with other software and other peripherals. In most cases, Windows 10 is currently used and it is necessary that it be 64 bits to have the best performance.
Other OS that are also used are MacOs and Linux.
Processor: It is the element that runs the operating system and applications. For a laptop that must be decisive at work, it is recommended to use an INTEL i5 or i7 of the seventh generation or its equivalents from AMD (Advanced Micro Devices).
RAM memory: It is important to have an amount of RAM memory that allows the work to be carried out with full guarantees and a technology that supports it.
Storage unit: Currently it is necessary to have solid state hard drives (SSD) that are about 5 or 6 times faster than conventional HDDs.
Graphics card: A powerful one is required in the case of work aimed at video editing, 3D design or video games. But if it is document management, web browsing, image processing, etc., a GPU or Graphic Processing Unit is not necessary.
Other factors to take into account are the size of the screen and its resolution, connectivity and battery so that performance does not pose any problem and teleworking occurs in perfect conditions.
