Memory and Storage Capacity 

Having sufficient RAM is vital to the performance of the Notebook. If you are buying the Notebook for performing various tasks like video editing, image editing, graphics work or for playing 3D games, you need to buy a Notebook with higher RAM.

Also, if you wish to store a large amount of data like movies, games, songs or other documents you need to buy a Notebook with more storage capacity.

Connectivity options
