Best Laptops for a Small Business 2019: Top 5 Rated5 mins read

Wow! I remembered starting up my personal business. I started out small but what I most craved for was to have a good laptop. It was my first priority. One that is fast and reliable and cheap. However, I didn’t want to spend so much just budgeting for a laptop as there are many business projects to be carried out that demands money too.

On the other hand, I made sure the laptop I was going for had some important qualities I needed. As a businessman, the most important thing my laptop should have is speed and ability to run so many applications at on time. The reason is that there will be many applications to run; ranging from client proposals, spreadsheet, applications that helps you advertise and so on. I have put together a list of laptops for a small business with a good budget.

  1. Hi Joshua and thanks for this great review.

    I’m in the market for a new laptop, and though I love apple products, I just can’t afford an apple laptop.

    I’m quite interested in the ASUS Chromebook. I like the Linux software and external hard drives are so small these days, it’s easy to add storage!

    Thanks again,
    Suzanne
