Like the rest of the world, it seems everyone is going beyond older processors and are now focusing on the likes of core i5 and core i7.

The processor is one of the most important factors to consider when looking for the right laptop to purchase. As in you might think it’s the number of cores, but for the most part desktop Core i5 processors have four cores, just like i7s.

Intel Core i7 processors generally have faster base clock speeds, or in other words they have more Ghz. … A higher number means better performance, as the i5-6500 is faster than the i5-6400.

The logic is quite simple. If you’re running away from Core i3 because you don’t plan to use your laptop only for basic tasks such as surfing the web, then you will need an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor.

Now, that’s where things get interesting, as we are about to find out what the differences between these CPUs are.

In a nutshell, Generally speaking, Core i7s are better than Core i5s, which are in turn better than Core i3s. Core i7 does not have seven cores nor does Core i3 have three cores. The numbers are simply indicative of their relative processing powers.

These are just names to indicate relative performance. Typically, the Core i3 series has only dual-core processors, while the Core i5 and Core i7 series have both dual-core and quad-core processors. Quad-cores are usually better than dual-cores, but don’t worry about that just yet. Which ever one you decide to get its cool.

While the option of going to the nearest computer or electronics store to get your HP laptop sounds nice, You’d be better off by ordering it online and i mean amazon.

And because you’re more than likely to get the cheapest prices on online stores in Nigeria, even though their service quality was not all that top notch but then again i got compensated so i will still recommend them you can also try jumia and konga online stores. You wonder why?

The reason is that with jumia and konga online stores, you get the option to pay on delivery only after you’ve received the product you ordered for. Regardless, if you are still not comfortable with buying online then go to the nearest local store and get it.

But be careful because i remember a long time ago when i didn’t know anything about laptops, i decided to purchase a laptop and i chose the option of a walk in. Now this seller is from ebonyi state well, so he said then he started telling me things about not purchasing from other sellers and what not, i was not showing any signs of giving in so he switched and he started telling me about jesus and how he attends christ embassy and all that, no offense to pastor chris i mean i like the guy but long story short i bought a faulty laptop and i tried to return it and this dude refused to take it back so i decided to call my guy chukwudi who happens to be in the military and he ordered 20 guys to accompany me to the seller’s store, you needed to see his face when he saw me for the third time like it was a total cruise. I did get my cheese back but one thing is certain now i rarely do a walk in when i want to purchase a device except i just want to.

Wrapping up

There are good stores out there so don’t get me wrong. Going to the store close to you to purchase your device is cool as fuck, like you get to feel, touch and have conversations with amazing people with good customer relations but purchasing online is the thing now and it’s really good for convenience.
