edited August 2023 in PC Tech

The term “power user” has specific connotations regarding the worlds of both personal and professional PC users.  

To be a power user in the truest sense, you need to have a greater degree of knowledge of PCs and better proficiency with computer skills than the average user.  

In administrative circles, power users are often given greater responsibilities and rights to help in managing a specific program or system. There are several different groups of professional activities in which it is a benefit to be a power user, including scientific research that involves computer use, graphic design, audio production, and video editing. 

To get the most out of being a power user dealing with large amounts of data, files, and CPU-straining programs, you need a laptop equipped with a large screen and sufficient hardware to support your personal and professional endeavors. Whether you employ your power user skills for work or pleasure, these laptops will increase your productivity, enhance your user experience, and help deliver incredible performance while seeing every pixel in stunning detail.

    15.6-inch is the sweet spot for me. I like having a numeric keypad and most 15.6-inch laptops have one. Anything smaller doesn't have a numeric keypad.
