When I began blogging, I used a base level 13in Macbook Air. I had no idea if it was the right computer for me, but it gave me access to the internet and that’s all I needed at the time.
Throughout the years, my blogging career has progressed to where a basic laptop just won’t cut it. Today I am going to show you how to find the right blogging laptop for you.
In the beginning
When I first started my blog, I used Blogger and uploaded all of my photos with a third party website called Photobucket.
Since I was not storing photos or even editing them for that matter, I didn’t see the need for a lot of storage on my computer.
Once I started editing photos through Lightroom and Photoshop, I instantly saw my little Macbook slow down on speed. Plus it was constantly heating up from the running processor.
Now that I have begun adding videos on YouTube, I added another program (Adobe Premiere Pro) into the mix to edit on my computer. Once again, I am running into trouble with my Macbook.
Not only can my computer not handle all the programs running in the background, with the fan constantly running, I cannot do any voice over edits on my video until my Macbook cools down!
It was time to upgrade my computer.
How to find the right blogging laptop for you
When I was looking for a new laptop, I knew that I needed a ton of space to store photos and graphics used for my blog. 128GB wasn’t going to cut it anymore.
I needed a fast processor that could handle all the programs I was running for the blog. There will some days that I am editing videos, photos, or both at the same time. I couldn’t handle a laptop that will be heating up!
Ok, I can admit it. I want a good looking computer. Just for vanity sake, I like a sleek laptop that is thin enough to fit in a purse and stylish enough when used for blog props. #FlatLayGoals
When it comes to laptops, everyone has a preference towards their favorite brand. But reading reviews on third party websites like Amazon and Best Buy was informative to see how users actually liked the laptop in a everyday setting.
So what am I using now?
Say hello to the new Lenovo Yoga 910.
Before this laptop, I never knew how PRETTY a laptop could be. When I opened this beauty out of the box, it literally made me squeal like a kid.
Here are some of my favorite features of the Lenovo Yoga 910:
- 7th Generation Intel® Core Processor
- Yoga Watchband Hinge
- Fingerprint Security
- Aluminum Unibody Design
- 4k High Definition Touchscreen
- Weighing in at 3.04 pounds
As for looks, this watchband hinge is unreal looking. It just adds a little bit of glamour to my already beautiful laptop. Yes, laptops can be beautiful too!
But the speed on this computer knocks out all my past computers. It’s almost comical looking at my old Macbook compared to this computer.
Needless to say, this Yoga 910 has really impressed me. It fit all the check points for a new laptop that can keep up with my blogging demands.
