What is laptop? uses of laptop

A laptop, also known as notebook or portable computer, is a small personal computer with functionality equivalent to that of a desktop PC. A laptop generally consists of a display screen, keyboard, mouse (pointing device), trackpad and speakers. A typical laptop measures about 1-1/2 inch thick and weighs 5-10 pounds, but larger models exist. The components are generally built into the display screen which closes like a clamshell to protect them from harm in the event of an accident or sudden impact.


Laptops are the best way to get work done while you’re on the go. They allow you to take your office with you wherever you go, so you can continue working even when you’re in a meeting, waiting for an appointment, or at home watching TV. They also come in handy as they can be used as both a laptop or tablet depending on what’s needed.


Laptops come in all shapes and sizes; some are more powerful than others. Generally speaking, the more powerful it is, the heavier it will be. Powering up your laptop may also drain its battery faster because power-hungry components such as higher resolution displays will suck up more energy from your battery than less demanding ones such as low-resolution screens do.


Laptops are great for portability. You can work on your laptop while in bed or while sipping coffee at the local café. When you’re not using it, you can take it with you, even if that means taking it to the office with you in the morning. This flexibility makes laptops perfect for people who don’t want to be tied down to one desk all day, but still need the convenience of working from home when they need to.

A laptop also has a lot more space than an iPad or phone, so if you prefer typing on physical keys instead of virtual ones, this is the device for you.
