When I started the Laptop Buyer’s Guide back in 2012, I intended it to serve as a reference for people looking to buy a new machine, listing all the good options in a certain price category and comparing specifications. As time has passed, this format has been adjusted, because more and more models exist that fit the criteria I’d selected. However, it’s gotten to the point where efficiency is no longer a factor in writing the guide, and there are so many duplicate models of laptops out in the wild. In an age where computers are as disposable as Styrofoam cups, what use is a guide that tries to go in-depth with every model that’s out there, when most of them are all the same?
That’s what the Laptop Buyer’s Companion Guide is here for.
