Best Laptop for Architecture Student in India 2016

There are multiple confusing options in market, but here we will only recommend Best Laptop for Architecture student that will be future proof, as we know Architecture is artistic work that require creativity of planning and designing the physical structure like buildings and bridges. To create such a complex 3D structure there is also need of a Machine that can support heavy graphics. First we should know the..

Minimum requirement of Laptop configuration for Architecture Student

Operating System
Here i will clearly recommend Windows over Mac, A lots of Architecture institute also prefer Windows for Students because there are many Software that are running only in Windows. The minimum recommendation is Windows 7, but it will be better if you will move to the Windows 8.1 or Windows 10

CPU (Central Processing Unit)
From the AMD and Intel, our personal preference goes over the Intel.
There are multiple generational variants available in market so it is better to go with Intel i5 (5th or 6th gen) or much better to go for i7 (4th or newer gen)
As many institute recommend that the CPU must be Muti-core and minimum base clock speed should be 2.4 GHz.

RAM (Random Access Memory)
8 GB RAM is minimum requirement but for the much smoother performance it's better to install 12 GB or 16 GB RAM, However we think 8GB is still a sweet spot for laptop recommended for Architecture.

GPU (Graphics processing unit)
The days are gone when 1 GB was enough for the task related to Architecture. new version of the software like AutoCAD, ArchiCad, Sketchup, Photoshop, V-Ray are now running better in 2 GB Graphic card. So here our recommendation for 1 GB GPU now turned into 2 GB graphic card.

Hard disk
It is now well known that the SSD are performing way better than the HDD, so if possible go with SSD instead of HDD but they are expensive one. Here you can go for an laptop which is offering SSD and HDD as well; where all the important Softwares can be installed in SSD and other data can be save in HDD. Although there may be option like HDD with 7200 rpm, which you can consider while buying a new laptop.

Screen Size/ Resolutions
For the size, do not choose smaller one, it is recommended at least stick with 15.6' laptop size.
Most of the laptops comes up with 1366X768 pixels, which is up to acceptable, for much clarity and sharper graphical image you should go for higher resolutions like 1600×900 pixels or 1920x1080 pixels,

What We Don’t like About Apple iPhone 7

iPhone is most talked gadget all over the world, So definitely everyone is always excited to know about the upcoming Smartphone from the Apple. For the year 2016 Apple launched iPhone 7 with lots of improvement from last handset, We really loved its design as Apple is well known for making striking design. But we are expecting a lot more from its latest handset "Apple iPhone 7". There are many areas where Apple failed to fill our expectation and lots of specs are quite mediocre. 

Reasons to Hate an iPhone 7

What we don’t like about the display

Although everything is bright enough in display but we are expecting at least 1080p (FHD) resolutions with 400+ppi of display density. Apple decided to stick with the resolutions of 750 x 1334 pixels. 
Samsung working on reducing the bezel area of handset. They are launching curved smartphone from the corners, means phone with no bezels, but here once again Apple launched its new device with large bezel area with 65.6% screen-to-body ratio.

Missing Card Slot

Nowadays lots of Android smartphone are supporting Card up to 2TB (2000 GB), here apple launched handset with 32/128/256 GB of internal storage without support of SD card. It is injustice to user which is going to spend a lot for a smartphone still he will get only 32 GB Storage (if customer choose to 32 GB variant) where user do not have option of expending the memory.

Where the hell is 3.5mm jack

May be company has any major plan for removing the headphone jack from the handset but most of current consumer will be troubled by this step, as most people posses wired headphone and all the brands are selling headphone with wire. Wireless headphone can be problematic, as it also need to be charged as smartphone.

Ewww This is battery for smartphone or feature phone

In this handset Apple installed a 1960 mAh battery, It is true that this company is spending billions of dollars in R&D, now I just want to ask them question, Why the hell you are spending that much money when can not even provide a battery whose capacity can reach up to 2000 mAh. Personally I was expecting at least 3000 mAh if not that they should provide 2500 mAh battery in this handset. Why apple always disappoint me when it comes to battery?

Still Slow Charging

There are many brands providing fast charging option in all the new phone they are launching, but Apple do not care about the fast charging feature, They have no plan to provide this facility to its customer right now. Even LeEco takes dig on Teaser Poster for Upcoming Event at new iPhones over lack of fast charging while promoting LeEco Pro 3.

No Radio Station without internet 

The FM is not supported in iPhone, lots of people can argue the fact that you can tune the station by connecting through internet but many times people don’t have access to WiFi or other mode of internet connection in such cases there is no option to tune the stations.
