Description

The truth is that no one knows exactly how long laptops last. People buy them and use them for over a year, then they get upgraded to a new model. Using the same model of laptop each time means you have the same components, which means the life expectancy of that laptop will be short.

You can sell your laptop at any time, but is this before it has reached its end of life or after? You might be able to sell it for parts or add some value to it by repairing or refurbishing it as an e-tailer, but this depends on whether you’re selling it as a part of an existing business or operating completely separately from your other business ventures.

If you are selling your old laptop as part of a business venture, then you need to be sure and ask what their return policy is because otherwise, they may not want to accept your phone call (or at least not immediately). Also, they are willing to give you more than the minimum amount of money that they advertise for laptops? If yes, then try to get as much money as you can for your laptop before you start the recovery process that we’ll talk about below.

There are certain models of laptops that have very good feedback from buyers and people using them in their daily lives but they are not publicly available and probably won’t be. We recommend getting a laptop with a brand name and know-how behind it, otherwise, you may end up receiving a machine that doesn’t offer the experience or performance of one of these top three most popular laptops.

1) Apple MacBook Pro

This is a 6th generation model of this brand and it has been around since late 2013. Not only will this give you all of the hardware features included in previous generations, but it will also be more reliable (though ‘reliable’ is not always the best word to describe Apple products). The top of the line laptop computer from Apple will always have high-end components but will cost you much more than you would pay for other laptops.

2) new Dell Latitude D820

This is a 15″ model of the 10-year-old laptop (but it’s still being made). It has great reviews and is one of the best laptop computers on the market. The user interface is easy to navigate and use. There are very few problems with this machine, however, this computer is more expensive than some of the other 15″ laptops on the market – but you get what you pay for.

3) Lenovo ThinkPad X1

This is a 14″ model that you can use while at home or in your office, or even when traveling. You will spend almost exactly as much as you would to buy another brand’s business-class notebook for about half of what these types cost. The battery life lasts about five hours, which may not seem like that much nowadays but will suffice for most people. It is still being made and the only problem that we have heard of is that it can be fussy about which OS you use the laptop with.

Top 3 Laptops to Avoid

While it may be tempting to choose a more expensive laptop than you need, there are certain models out there which will cause more headaches in the future than they would have saved you in after-sale costs. These are also the kinds of machines that pick up bad reviews almost immediately and customers would complain about everything from device performance to poor customer service after they received their laptops. If your budget allows it, we recommend getting a machine with these features:

1) HP Pavilion dm3-1030us

Don’t get this one unless you really like HP computers. This model won our most hated laptop award after only one year because of its battery life, low-resolution screens, underpowered hardware architecture, and overall poor build quality. This model was made for people without knowledge of computers, who just want a computer for easy operation when working on the move. This comes at a high price, and in all honesty, you get what you pay for. The battery life is low, the screen resolution low and the quality of service poor. The model also has a lot of problems with just simple operations such as determining which ports are connected (sometimes none will be).

2) HP Pavilion dm4

This one also comes in at number two on our list because we have heard similar reports of the same problems with this machine that we mentioned before in regards to the previous model. Using this laptop while traveling would be very difficult and unsatisfying because it is not nearly powerful enough to play intensive games on it or to edit photos or perform video editing, so these functions are not practical with it. It may be worth getting if you don’t do much work on your computer but still want one that will look good while at home or traveling through.

3) Toshiba Satellite P50t-A

This is another model that took the top spot in our worst laptop awards because of its low-resolution screens, poor battery life, and bad build quality. It has a price tag of $950 and below, which again, makes it one you would want if you do not need a powerful machine. However, if you are looking for one that will last a long time and perform well then look elsewhere. The screen resolution is low (1060×768), the battery life is poor and the construction feels cheap. These things all make it hard to recommend this model to anyone who wants a high-quality laptop that will last them for years to come.
