More Information

Get to Know Laptop Features

All of the laptops for sale on Rent-A-Center's website include full spec sheets with information about processors, operating systems, memory, storage capacity, software compatibility, and more. We encourage you to check out this information and talk to your local Rent-A-Center associate to help you choose the best laptop for your needs.

Ask yourself, "How am I going to use my laptop? What am I going to do with it the most?" If you're mostly going to check email, surf the Internet, and check social media, you may not need to worry about extra memory or Ethernet ports. On the other hand, if you plan on streaming movies, creating documents for work, and saving music files to your computer, you'll want to make sure your laptop has adequate storage capacity.

Other features to explore when shopping for laptops include CD/DVD drives, USB ports, HDMI ports, Ethernet ports, SD memory card slots, and universal ports.

What's the Best Laptop for School?

Nowadays, it's hard to imagine getting through school without a laptop. Teachers expect you to communicate through email, access classroom chat forums, submit assignments online, and be able to research anything at a moment's notice. Some schools even require students to take tests on their laptops! Such scenarios require reliability, speed, and compatibility with certain types of software. Generally speaking, though, the best laptop for school is one that can be easily transported in a backpack, quickly connected to WiFi, and has a long battery life. You don't want your battery to run low when you're taking notes for the final exam!

Are Laptops Good for Gaming?

Gaming or multimedia work (graphics, video, or audio) will require a laptop with more/faster memory, as well as more storage. You want to make sure every detail on your screen looks sharp, and there's zero lag between your screen's response time and your game. Laptops with NVIDIA graphics systems may be best suited for your needs.

What's the Best Laptop for Work?

When it comes to buying the best computer laptop for work, you want to consider many of the same things that a student might: storage, speed, battery life, etc. You may also want to consider the look and feel of the laptop. After all, you want your fellow employees and clients to view you as the professional that you are! Plus, does the laptop you're looking to own have the right ports and connectivity options for you to print, connect, and share documents? Your local Rent-A-Center can help you select the right computer laptop at a competitive, affordable price.
