A Blogging laptop should be powerful enough for handling all the requirements for creating, editing and sharing content. The best laptops for bloggers fall into midsize category hence providing large displays combined with good portability.

Some important features and specifications should be considered while buying laptops for blogging purpose. These are mentioned below:

  • Screen sizes should be 13 inch to 15 inch providing better viewing for longer hours of blogging. These should have a high resolution and good color contrast to be able to display sharp texts and bright images. If you need more portability and do not bother much about visual size, you may go for netbooks too.
  • For high performance and power efficiency, Intel Core i5 processors would do well.
  • At least 4GB RAM would help in better multitasking and running applications for photo, audio and video editing.
  • Hard drives of 250GB or more provide sufficient space for storing your images, videos, documents and finished work required for blogging. For low power consumption, current laptops may use solid state drives.
  • It would be great to have full-size keyboards in blogging laptops, as these would lessen the efforts required in producing error free content.
  • Inclusion of card readers can prove to be advantageous in transferring photos from cameras to laptops. Instantly uploading photos to your blogs and publishing content on the go are possible with excellent connectivity to the internet.

  • From its aluminum and carbon fiber case to its edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass screen, the Dell XPS 13 is a sensational compact traveler, but it lacks some ports found on other ultrabooks.

  • The new concept of the Studio XPS model seems successful. The XPS stll claims a high performance. And Dell rightly places emphasis on the hybrid solution from nVidia. So, it was not only possible to provide proper reserve capacities, but also fulfill properties typical for 13-incher, e.g., a slim case, a decent noise level, and also sufficient mobility.

    The case could also convince in many aspects. E.g., regarding used materials and stability.

  • This thin-and-light notebook offers very good performance, hybrid graphics, and a luxurious design.

  • The Dell Inspiron 14z (i14z-6677DBK) has plenty in common with its Editors' Choice predecessor, the Dell Inspiron 14z (Core i5), like the latest Core i5 processor, a larger hard drive, and slightly better performance in gaming and multimedia, but it also retains some of its flaws, like stubborn mouse buttons and a irritating port covers. It makes a strong showing in its category, but other laptops like the Sony VAIO VPC-EG16FM add features like Blu-ray and WiMAX and cost less.
