What laptop to buy for good video calls?

  kaif84 19:54 22 Mar 2020

I am looking to buy a new laptop, primarily for the purpose of doing video calls with my clients. I am on a low budget.

What are the specifications I should be looking for?

I have a good internet connection - 1Gbps on ethernet, and I would like to also make sure that the laptop I buy facilitates good quality calls.

I told you in you thread in the windows forum that if your clients were on a poor connection nothing you do at your end would improve things and that includes buying another laptop.

Lol, yes you did. But my computer is old and keeps getting stuck, crashing, overheating and making the fan become noisy. So I should buy one irrespective of whether it will help with video calls or not.

Then your answer is simple.

Almost any laptop or Tablet you care to but will do what you want, if that is all you want.

I have only one recommendation: Buy one with more than 30GB of Storage, It is insufficient to happily download Windows Updates
