All the companies which produce laptops select the best models depending upon the type of usage by targeting and labeling their laptops for either “home users” or “business users”.
Business laptops include longer warranties, more configuration and connectivity options, better durability and build quality, better support and additional security built in. Business laptops can withstand a little rough handling, as they are usually made up of stronger material, like magnesium or aluminum. Home users could also consider business laptops.
