Whether you have a side hustle, work full time from home or run an online empire, having the right tools to get your digital offers created and out into the world is essential. Here's what you need to know in order to choose the right laptop for your online business needs.
Beyond the Budget
Okay, let's face everyone has a budget, BUT if you're going to subscribe to a LOT of software and SaaS platforms, you need the hardware to use them. Don't let some shop floor person at the local big box store try to fool you with the "Oh you're just online, well all you need is this..." They will show you a $200 laptop which indeed is great for reading blogs and checking email, but if you're building websites, working on Salesforce or Canva, doing a little Photoshop here and there, or editing videos for YouTube or Facebook guess what? That little websurfing laptop is going to chug chug chug...cough and die.
Before you invest money into your equipment it's important to know how you're using the equipment, especially when you're running a business on your own and not outsourcing a lot of your content creation yet.
If you're going DIY you need equipment that will be able to hold up over time and not take forever to finish up your projects. Let's say you create courses, if you're recording a 30 minute course on PowerPoint rendering it into a video can take up to an hour on a laptop not configured for creators. Business laptops are not designed for speed when it comes to making content. It's one of the reasons GIGAYBTE Notebooks invested time in research and development to create high-performance laptops which could squeeze into a small business budget and meet the needs of modern day business. We know you're not just checking email or surfing blogs as you work online! Let's face business has changed in the 21st century and you need a laptop able to help you keep up.
Time is Money
So often online business owners procrastinate on creating the content they sell or use to market their products because it can take so long to render video, get memes/graphics made and uploaded and it's time consuming. If you're not getting your content made, or working on your e-commerce site uploading photos or products, e-books and white papers, you're falling behind. But it can take so long when you're on the wrong laptop. The AERO Classic is designed to help you work on these projects with ease, just make sure you have 16GBs of Ram and you're good to go for most online businesses.
For those of you using YouTube or other video platforms to market or sell your products and services, you want to go with the AERO Classic models that boast the RTX Studio 2060 graphics card, this will help shave off valuable time when rendering classes and videos.
If you're mostly uploading product photos and working with e-commerce platforms and blogs, you can definitely get away with using the model with the GTX 1660 ti graphics card. Don't get too bogged down with the specs, we know it's confusing if you're not techy, that's why we make these guides to help you know which model is right for you. Just click the links below to see which model will work best for you!
