There is such a breadth of choice available at our fingertips, and making the correct decision can often be tricky. The thing is, the device you buy needs to fit your lifestyle. With our computing comparison guide, we will highlight which computing device is best suited to you and your needs. So don’t go running to the store just yet; we have researched for you, so just sit back and relax.

 Computing Comparison Guide - Laptops

Laptops

Ah yes, the ol’ reliable. Laptops have been around for a while now and have become the staple of any modern working environment. Laptops are portable, compact, work offline, are secure, and can also be inexpensive. Our collection of laptops is extensive, and with prices as low as€250, you can get your hands on a laptop for next to nothing. Not only that, but you can filter based on speed, amount of RAM included, colour, and screen size. So whether you are looking for a HP laptop, an ASUS laptop, or a brand-new Lenovo, you can filter your search and find the appropriate brand, size, and price for you.

Laptops are perfect for school and college students, older people looking to get their hands on something cheap and cheerful, and people needing a portable device that allows them to work on the go.

We do have ahandy laptop guide for college students right here as well, so feel free to give it a look before you commit to anything. Furthermore, if you want to upgrade your laptop experience, then perhaps you can shopour laptop accessory range where you can find everything from external hard drives to laptop bags. Still not happy? Maybe our competitively pricedlaptop bundles will tempt you in? Check them out; you know you want to.

Chromebooks

If you are operating on a budget and want to buy something with a little less kick than a laptop, then aChromebook might be the best option for you. The main difference between a Chromebook and a laptop is the operating system, which in all honesty, is not as powerful or functional, but you know what? Sometimes you don’t need all of that functionality.

Our Chromebook collection is extensive, and with a uniform 4GB of RAM, a selection of colours, and a host of screen sizes from 11.5” to 14.6”, it is safe to say that there is something there for everyone. However, what Chromebooks lack in operating software and MS Word compatibility (in some parts), they make up for in price and simplicity, so consider picking one up today. (p.s most of the laptop accessories available in-store and online also work with a Chromebook).

Tablets

And then we have tablets, the most modern and practical of all. Perfect as a gift for a loved one, or a self-gift, tablets are the most casual of all computing devices and will typically have applications available on them which will allow you to mix business and pleasure, with games, social media, and productivity apps that can be downloaded with a few touches of the screen.

Our collection of tablets varies in size and scope, from highly affordableAlcatel tablets toSamsung tablets, toApple iPad’s we have it all. Oh yeah, and ahuge selection of cases and accessories to boot.

Desktops

With the advent of people still working from home due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it would be rude not to mentiondesktops andmonitors. Many of the desktops and monitors that we have both in-store and online can be pretty expensive, and that is because they are of the highest quality. Many of our best sellers have Intel Core processors, which allow them to work at high speeds, so you no longer have to worry about slow computers or laptops; everything is happening in the blink of an eye.

With a desktop, the screen is larger, you can connect your laptop and work using two screens, the processing power is often more powerful than that of a laptop, and they offer outstanding performance. In-store, we have a selection of affordable desktops and monitors, but there is also some incredible computing equipment in there if you want an upgrade.
