Dear Adam, I’m thinking of getting a new laptop, but I have no idea where to start. Can you help?

From work to study and playing games, computers play a big role in our lives. However, as fantastic as they are, they don’t last forever. Sometimes, we need to upgrade our device because it is getting old, or purely because we want to experience the benefits and features that a newer device offers.

If you’re not computer savvy, it can be difficult to make the right decision when things like RAM, processors, graphics cards and other types of computer hardware come into play. At Harvey Norman, we have a variety of options to choose from in terms of devices, and aim to make it as easy as possible for you to find the perfect one. Aside from laptops, we also stock a range of iPads, 2-in-1s and Tablets, as well as plenty of options under $500.

Firstly, consider a few things. What will you be using your new laptop for? Are you after something lightweight and portable, or something larger? Will you need a lot of storage? Will you need something with a long battery life? Are there any particular features you are on the lookout for?

Next come the accessories. You’ll want a case to protect your new device, a mouse if you don’t like using the trackpad and a trusted antivirus software such as Norton to keep it safe while browsing. We can even help you pick out new office furniture.

We also have BYOD insurance available, so that if you child breaks or loses their device it is covered!

Come into Harvey Norman and our team would love to help you find a new device you’ll love, even if you are unsure of what you’re wanting. We are also able to offer advice on keeping it in great condition and safe online so it’ll last you many years.
