Minimum Requirements For Laptops For Business Execs On The Go

As a business exec on the go, there are various requirements for a laptop that you value more than others. Despite being the best solution for serious work or play whether you are at home, on the road, or in your office, one size rarely fits all. The number one thing to consider when buying a laptop is what you will need that laptop to do. Set your budget according to your priorities.


Battery Life

If you get a lot of work done during long haul flights, the Wh (Watt-hours) or MAH (milliamp-hours) rating of the battery will be one of the top criteria for you. So, too, will various battery-saving settings.

Look for a battery life of at least 8 hours.



Even if you don’t carry your laptop around much, another important factor is the durability of its casing. While many are plastic, more hard-wearing options include magnesium alloy chassis with anodized aluminium lids.

Check whether the hard drive is protected from shock, motion, and abrupt movement.



If you predominantly work at a desk, a more comfortable design may be more important to you than a compact design. A figures-driven field benefits from a separate number keypad while a leader may require a good quality camera for virtual meetings.

Consider what size screen you need, if it needs to be a touchscreen, or whether you would prefer a keyboard with dedicated collaboration or number keys.



The CPU (Central Processing Unit) acts as the brain of your computer. The more advanced it is, the more powerful your computer will be.

Look for an Intel® Core™ or AMD Ryzen™ processor; and 8 – 16 GB of memory.
