Memory and storage for laptops and tablets
There are two memory types that it are important to think about when buying a laptop or tablet; RAM and hard disk storage capacity.
RAM means Random Access Memory and is a key number when thinking of buying a laptop or tablet . The more RAM, the quicker a tablet or laptop should work when multiple applications are used. RAM sizes are listed in terms of gigabytes (GB).
RAM sizes for laptops and tablets will usually range from 1 or 2GB up to 8GB. In some cases it may be possible to buy a laptop or tablet with even more operating memory.
The amount of storage available for laptops and tablets will vary considerably depending on the item purchased. The larger the storage capacity, the easier it is to store things like music and film files, or any other type required.
Smaller models may come with just 8GB of hard disk storage, while more expensive models can have over 500 GB. As a guide, a typical film file in HD could take up around 3 GB of memory space.
Choosing the right laptop or tablet for a person's needs will depend on how fast they need the machine to work, and how much storage they'll need for the documents and files being stored.
