TechSpot Poll: Besides performance, what do you consider most important in a laptop?

By on May 21, 2008, 9:48 AM
Being this a site that caters primarily to gamers and the technology enthusiast crowd, it's probably safe to assume that many of you will undoubtedly choose a desktop when buying / building a new computer as it provides more flexibility for upgrading it later. It’s no secret, however, that the PC industry is increasingly shifting away from desktop machines and towards portable computers – with the latter becoming more and more suitable for demanding tasks such as gaming.

If you’ve ever shopped for a notebook, you know that the factors to consider go far beyond performance. With so many choices available on the market today from the recently popularized sub-notebooks to the more powerful desktop replacements, what we want to know in our latest poll is: Besides performance, what do you consider most important in a laptop? You can vote here.

As for our previous poll, we asked our readers whether they would get a Blu-ray player now that HD DVD is dead. The results were somewhat divided with the majority of voters saying they wouldn’t get a Blu-ray player, but only a few chose to go the digital download route. Meanwhile, almost half of the respondents claimed they already own or plan to buy either a stand-alone or PS3 Blu-ray player. Check the image below for the rest of the poll results.
