While we are accustomed to a more comfortable life, compactness of our gadgets is one of the aspects we always want more of. Compact gizmos are easy to carry around and great to handle. With new technological advancements, sizes of the regular devices we use are reducing significantly. No wonder that computers which occupied space of several rooms now fit in our lap or adorn our palm. Mini laptops or compact laptops are extremely useful for people who need to travel a lot and carry their laptops along with them. Also, it must be admitted that carrying mini laptops around is gradually becoming a fashion statement as well.
But while laptops are being made compact and their size is been significantly reduced, low prices generally means compromises with hardware (slower processor speed, less RAM, smaller hard drive, no CD drive,etc) or a drastic rise in cost. Understandably, both of the aforementioned alternatives are undesirable for consumers. However, many UK retailers have started offering pay weekly schemes to spread out the cost of the purchase so you can afford a high quality laptop which will last for years. Rather than making one single hefty payment, it includes paying small instalments every week till the entire amount is paid.
Lookagain and Homebuy are two of the most well-known stores which provide spread the cost payment schemes on laptops, but a specified protocol has to be followed. There is little paperwork and no credit history involved, and the aim of any verification is to ensure the applicant has a regular source of income. Majority age, a legal regular salary and proof of residence in the city/town for a reasonable period of time are some of the major requirements.
