If you are on the lookout for an amazing mini laptop then there are some things you need to consider.

If you don’t look for these things then you might not be happy with your next mini laptop so it’s important that you know what to look for. In this article, we will go over all the things you need in your next mini laptop from the chassis to the processor.

So, what is it you need forĀ in your next mini laptop?

The Chassis

The chassis is the exterior of the mini laptop. You want to have a chassis that is durable but still lightweight. If it is too heavy it will be hard to carry the notebook with you and then you lose one of the best reasons to own a mini laptop, the portability.

The Motherboard

The motherboard is the heart of the laptop. You need to have a motherboard that supports the rest of the necessary hardware such as the CPU, the graphics card, and the power supply. You also need a motherboard with all the necessary ports you need, for example, a VGA or HDMI port, if you want to add an external monitor. Another important port your motherboard needs to have is the USB port. With a USB port, you can add a USB stick with for example photos and view in your laptop. You can also connect a keyboard or a mouse with the USB port.

The Processor

The processor is the brain of the laptop. There are two major brands that create processors, AMD and Intel. The more demanding programs you want to run the better processor you’ll need. The processor is also called the CPU which stands for Central Processing Unit.

The Graphics Card

Most mini laptops have a graphics card already built into the motherboard. But if you want to play video games you’ll often need to have an external graphics card. Nvidia and AMD make some great graphics card for gaming.

The Price

Everyone loves a good deal.And when it comes to mini laptops you can often find a good deal. But the price is not everything If you cheap out and just go for the cheapest mini laptop you can find, often you will regret it because the hardware in it is too slow or that the laptop freezes.


Now that you know what to look for in your next mini laptop, you can hopefully get a mini laptop you’re happy with. To sum it up:

Get a mini laptop with a nice durable but light chassis, a motherboard with ports for all the things you’ll plug in the laptop and a good processor. And if you are a gamer don’t forget the graphics card.
