Best hi spec laptops

Hi spec laptops are laptops with high specification components and the latest state of the art technology. The latest hi spec laptops should have at least 4GB of RAM and the latest processors to deliver high performance, even if they don't have the latest operating system or the largest hard drive. Hi spec laptops are used for gaming or as an alternative to a desktop computer because they can handle large memory-intensive application being run at once and their performances rarely dwindles as quickly as other models, such as netbooks where the hard drive has the tendancy to slow down access to files.

Advent 3000

The Advent 3000 has 4GB of memory which, for a laptop, is considered quite a lot. The hard drive holds 500GB of files and the laptop runs off a Intel Core 2 Duo - T4300 processor, a fairly hi tech processor which allows the user to take full advantage of the 4GB RAM. However, the laptop must have a 64-bit version of the Windows operating system installed or the system will only use 3GB of the 4GB memory available. Check with your retailer to ensure the laptop has a 64-bit operating system to take full advantage of the memory. Prices for the Advent 3000 start from £349.99.

Acer 5810T

The Acer 5810T again comes with 4GB of RAM and 500GB hard drive with an integrated CD/DVD drive, Windows 7 Premium installed and a high performance graphics card. The 15.6 inch screen has a high resolution output and the large memory of the model allows for faster processing, file access and response times. You can pick up this laptop for around £399.99.

Apple MacBook Pro

For Macintosh users the Apple MacBook Pro Core i7 2.2 GHz model is one of the fastest hi spec laptops on the market. Although it's more expensive than other laptop models the memory performance equals to 4GB and offers a 750GB hard drive; various applications on the laptop make good use of the 4GB memory, such as the HD record output when images are recorded from the built in webcam. Despite its price the laptop is rated highly among users but you can expect to pay around £1,800.

Acer Aspire Ethos 8943G

This huge multimedia super powered hi spec laptop retails around £2,000 but has some of the highest performance processors built in, with a RAM up to a massive 12GB and two 680GB hard drives. Other versions are available with less memory for £1,000 but this model is particularly useful for gaming users because of the high powered built in wi-fi system, intense graphic cards and the state of the art processor used to power all the hi spec laptops functions.
