Inversely if your display is small in size, it has dull presentation you might feel drowsy. While studying or working on the laptop does it is suggested to look for a display which has a good size and a good resolution , clarity and brightness. To ensure a better viewing angle of the display you can look for or either VA or IPS panel.
  • Processor: Second most important thing that you required to notice is the processor. Even for medical coding we need at least an Intel i3 processor. It is best to to get an i7 Processor according to the trend.
