Dell and HP are two of the biggest laptop manufacturers in the world. Chances are you have seen one of these two brands at the computer store closest to you. At some point in your life, you must have come into contact with one of these brands. Nearly every computer store in the world, with the exception of the Apple stores, have Dell and/or HP laptops in stock. There are many reasons why they are the leaders in the market. For one, these companies have R&D teams that are some of the best in the world. They are able to build laptops that have high performance, last for ages and are very stable indeed. The choice between the two brands is a tough one.
When it comes to business laptops, HP is one of the clear leaders in the industry. While you can find some good options at a Dell reseller as well, HP has been a part of the business community for decades now. For the people who have to work on the go and require a lot of portability in their laptops, both brands seem to be at a draw. Both Dell and HP make some of the most portable business laptops in the world. They offer the highest in class for performance. The difference with the two is that an HP laptop sells for about half the price of a Dell laptop in Singapore with similar specifications. This makes the difficult choice a relatively easy one, especially if you are shopping for a laptop on a budget. With the combination of performance and pricing, HP takes the cake in the business world.
For gaming, on the other hand, Dell is the clear winner. If you walk to a Dell reseller and ask for a gaming laptop, you are offered one of the best product lines in the world – Alienware laptops. While Dell doesn’t only make gaming machines through Alienware, this is the clear top choice. Alienware laptops are known for their ridiculously high performance and specifications. Hardcore gamers swear by both their laptops and desktop computers. HP does have some gaming laptops available, but they don’t even come close to the sheer power that a Dell gaming machine provides to the user. HP more than makes up for it by having some of the most portable options for Ultrabooks though.
The bottom line is that it comes down to needs and personal preference. If you are a gamer, for instance, nothing can beat a good Alienware laptop by Dell. On the other hand, if you’re a photographer who works on the go, a sleek Ultrabook from HP is going to be your laptop of choice. Always think about your needs when picking a laptop or a desktop out.
