Features that Separate Premium Laptops from Regular Ones

In this digital era, no one can imagine their lives without devices like smartphones and laptops. These devices have become an essential part of everyone’s life, be it for work or play. It’s therefore important to buy a high-quality device that can bear the brunt of the pressure you put on it every day. Unfortunately, people don’t understand the difference between a premium laptop vs a regular one and feel that this premiumness is nothing but a whole bunch of frills, bells and whistles that are avoidable and not worth the extra price when buying. This blog aims to change your perception by telling you how premium laptops are different from regular ones so that you can make a more informed purchase decision.

Build Quality

Premium laptops are made of high-quality metallic alloy materials, like Aluminum, Magnesium, composite materials, etc. This makes them lightweight but more durable and resistant to daily wear and tear. Regular laptops on the other hand are built with plastic materials that not only make them less robust, but their look and feel is also not premium. Moreover, the really premium laptops even come with oleophobic coating. This makes them resistant to fingerprints and smudges.

Powerful Hardware

Premium laptops come with better and more efficient hardware than standard laptops, which makes them more powerful and power efficient. For instance, a premium laptop will have U series of CPUs while regular ones will be powered by G series. For instance, HP Laptop 15s-fr4000TU comes with Intel Core i5-1155G7 CPU. This provides a clock frequency of up to 4.5 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology. Plus, it has 8 MB L3 cache, 4 cores, and 8 threads. On the other hand, a premium device like the HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 Laptop OLED Touch 13.5-ef0052TU is based on Intel Evo platform and powered by Intel Core i5-1235U. This is a U series CPU that’s more power efficient, and provides clock speed of up to 4.4 GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology. The icing on the cake about this CPU is that it has higher (12 MB) L3 cache, 10 cores, and 12 threads. The key thing to note here is that though both laptops have a Core i5 CPU, but the premium device has a CPU that has more cores, more L3 cache, more threads, and yet it’s more power efficient.

Similarly, if we continue comparing these two laptops, then you’ll fine that the Spectre has a higher speed RAM, a faster SSD and a much better quality display.

Therefore, specs wise also, premium laptops have components that are of higher quality and deliver superior performance.

Display Quality

Compared to regular ones, premium laptops come with better quality screens. For instance, if we continue with the two laptop examples we gave earlier, the HP Laptop 15s-fr4000TU has a 15.6-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) resolution micro-edge, anti-glare display with 250 nits brightness. On the other hand, the HP Spectre x360 has a 13.5-inch 3K2K (3000 x 2000) resolution OLED screen with multitouch, edge-to-edge glass, micro-edge, anti-reflection Corning Gorilla Glass NBT, Low Blue Light, SDR 400 nits, HDR 500 nits, and 100% DCI-P3. What it means is that the premium laptop enables you to work on it for hours without hurting your eyes and yet enjoy vivid colors and display sharpness.

Advanced Features

Premium laptops come with advanced features like facial recognition and touchscreens, which make them more convenient and secure to use. For instance, the HP Spectre x360 we just talked about comes with GlamCam, a feature that enhance your video calls with an AI-powered appearance filter. It has 5 Megapixel IR smart camera that uses picture-in-picture and voice tracking to automatically keep you in focus. Moreover, it can adjust the lighting so that you’re visible in both low light and excess light conditions. Plus, it supports AI based Noise Reduction and Dynamic Voice Levelling so that your voice is heard clearly without interruption. Moreover, it enhances your voice clarity even if you’re speaking while wearing a mask.

Another interesting feature of Spectre is smart thermal management technology that optimises the performance, fan noise, and temperature of your laptop.


Premium laptops are thin, light, and look great and yet are solid enough to withstand any accidental drops and spills. Though they are more compact, their performance and features are much better than regular laptops. These portable machines are packed with powerful hardware and the battery is also optimized to last for hours. So again taking the example of the two laptops we just compared, the HP Spectre can last for more than 13 hours because it has a 4-cell, 66 Wh Li-ion polymer battery. The consumer laptop on the other hand has a 3-cell, 41 Wh Li-ion battery that can give a backup of upto 7 hours.

Lastly, premium laptops with come with longer warranty and better customer support than regular laptops.
