9 Best Laptops For Bloggers – Top 2021 Laptops That You Can Blog On

Searching for the best laptops for bloggers in 2021? Although many people use mobile phone for blogging, but I always recommend to buy a laptop for blogging. Because with a laptop, you can write content very well, manage your website and do plenty of thins easily compared to a mobile phone.

If you are a content writer or blogger, then I am sure you will find this list of best laptops for writers 2021 very useful. Even if you have a laptop, you might want to buy a better laptop with higher performance or you want to replace your old laptop with a new one.

But from where should I buy a laptop? is buying laptop online safe? Where can I get the best deals on laptops in India?

To answer your queries, let me help you to choose the best budget laptop for content writers or freelance writers so that you can write better content without compromising with a low-performance laptop.

What kind of Laptops Should You Buy If You Are a Blogger Or Content Writer?

I am sure you are aware of the fact that even if some laptop is best for your friend, it may not fit with your need. Yes, when we talk about best laptops for writers, we need to keep in mind few things like

As a writer, a person wants to carry the laptop anywhere. E.g. if you are a travel blogger, then I am sure you would like to write when traveling and in such a scenario a compact, foldable laptop will meet your requirement perfectly. There are laptops with very high configuration or specific tasks.

E.g. a photographer may need a laptop with higher memory so that he/she can edit pictures using software like Photoshop etc. Similarly, if you are a gamer, you need a very high configured laptop with a graphics card. But for a writer, a fast & high-performance laptop, especially for surfing & writing, is enough.

As a writer may not need very high configuration, that means they can save a good amount of money. In that case better to choose a popular branded laptop from any one of the top laptop selling brands in India.

Things To Understand Before Buying the Best Laptops for Blogging in India 2021?

Although I have cleared a couple of key points to consider while buying a laptop online when you are a freelance writer or a blogger. But if you are a beginner, I am sure you might be interested to understand the key specifications you must notice before buying a laptop online.

Recommended laptop configuration for writers:

  • RAM or random access memory is the most important thing one must consider first. The more the RAM, the better the performance. Make sure you don’t buy a laptop below 4GB RAM.
  • Gone are the days when an 80GB hard drive computer looks too big. These days laptops are coming with 1 TB and even more. As you are a writer, I am sure you may not need such high storage, but just try to crack a better laptop deal online where you may get high storage.
  • Don’t buy laptops with DOS to save money. Better to start with a genuine Windows 7 or Windows 10 or Mac OS laptop. If you buy a laptop with an operating system installed, it will be cheap compared to buy an OS separately. If you think you can manage a pirated OS and install on a DOS laptop by own then it’s up to you.
  • As you can save some money on such laptops. But later on, you may face some Widows genuineness error, software compatibility error etc. I would say strictly NO for a non-technical person.
  • Processor: You can choose either AMD or Intel i3 onward. AMD process laptops are very cheap compared to Intel ones. But AMD ones may give you some heating issues. But as a writer, I don’t think this will be a problem. But if you play a high-end game or install heavy software in future, it is better to go with Intel laptops only.

As a writer, I would recommend you to buy a wireless keyboard as it will give good flexibility and comfort while writing. In case your laptop compact, then you may find difficulty in writing using the touch keyboard every time.

The best laptop for blogging: the 10 best laptops for Writers and journalists

1. Apple MacBook Pro

Apple MacBook Air is another popular Apple laptops in India. These laptops are really amazing in terms of quality, look, finishing and handling. The screen size is 13.3 inch which is simply the perfect one. Not the bigger and not the smaller one.

Although the 8GB RAM will make it the best performance oriented laptop, at the same time a 128 HDD looks very dull with this price range. You have to buy an external HDD with this laptop to store your movies, videos, songs etc. Definitely, for storing regular writing & blogging related staffs, this space is enough.

The best part of Apple MacBook Air is that it has a decent battery back up of up to 12 hours. That means, if you recharge this laptop for 100% and out for the trip, till evening you can use the laptop.
