8 Signs That You Need To Upgrade To A New Laptop

On top of your smartphone, one gadget that you truly can’t live without has got to be your laptop.

From using it for work to watching videos after you come back from work, a laptop is truly an indispensable gadget.

However, like most things in life, things tend to break down after years of wear and tear.

If you experienced any of these eight signs, it is high time that you upgrade to a new laptop:

#1 The fans are as noisy as a jet’s engine

You know something is really wrong when the fans inside your laptop are noisier than the K-pop music you are listening to. On top of noisy fans, if you feel that your laptop gets hotter by the minute, it’s time to upgrade to a new laptop.

#2 Your laptop lags every time you load something

Imagine being chased by your boss or client, but your laptop refuses to work with you. What is even worst? Your laptop may shut down and you forgot to save! You have to rework on the document

#3 The laptop screen might be too small and you need eyes drops all the time 

You hurt your neck when you have a small screen size laptop, but it’s expensive if you were to change to a bigger screen laptop, and sometimes, it can be heavier too. You will also need eye drops for such a small screen which hurt your eyes. 

#4  No privacy because the sticker keeps falling off from your webcam 

Zoom meetings are important now, as people are still working from home. And you can tell how many people use stickers to cover their webcam in order to protect their privacy.

However, is it the right solution? What if one day, the sticker falls off, and you don’t realise it? Would you expose yourself to hackers? 

#5 Sending large files is a chore

Hands up if you know the struggle; you want to transfer a large from your smartphone to your laptop, but you can’t find the cable to do so. Once you find it, your laptop doesn’t recognise your smartphone.

You then would have to troubleshoot from the internet to find a solution and once that’s done, you would have to wait two hours because the transfer. Is. Just. So. Slow! 

#6 Multitasking? What’s that?

If you’re a workaholic like us, you know the feeling of focusing on something too much that you disregard everything that’s happening around you. Like an important phone call from your boss. Like, ten miss calls from your boss because you’re too engrossed with your work.

Wouldn’t it be awesome if your laptop notifies you every time a phone call comes in?

#7 Your laptop’s security features are so 1990s

Imagine typing in your password every time you want to log in into your laptop, and because of your chubby fingers, you key in the wrong password. You would have to key in the password again - and slowly this time.

Wouldn’t it be more convenient to have a laptop that lets you sign in by just reading your fingerprint?

#8 Your work bag is a mess

You have one charging brick for your laptop, another cable for your mouse and one more data transfer cable for your smartphone. Ugh, don’t you wish you can just use one cable for everything?

If you’re experiencing any of these signs (hopefully, not all), it is time to look at your wrist - because it’s time to upgrade your laptop.

And if you’re in the market for one, you should check out the HUAWEI MateBook 14, which starts at RM3,799 (with free gifts up to RM1,177 if you pre-order one now.
