I do not think so there is anyone who does not know about laptops (even your diaper-wearing
kid knows how to change the cartoons on YouTube). Uses of laptops in our daily life are
obvious and essential, just like eating and walking.
Technology has led to an upheaval of the world we live in. It continues to do the same every
day. Before learning how to speak, our kids learn how to use a phone and not only kids but
everyone, every single person. Our homes are equipped with technology and we cannot
imagine a second without it.
Also, our lives are equipped with them. Forget everything. Can you recall how many times the
internet helped you get rid of a problem? You can not, probably, because it is hard to even give
a rough estimate.
How does technology challenge itself?
As viewed by Alvin Toffler, technology is the great growling engine of change. It is rightly said.
The conquest of finding a better version of anything is what is keeping the universe going.
When Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, he was given the due praise and respect. It
was a wonder. But somehow, almost a century later in 1973, Martin Cooper came up with the
first mobile phone.
We all know that the first mobile phone was a wireless version of the telephone. It is proof that
someone challenged the telephone and came up with its upgraded version.
Similarly, when computers were first used, they were considered a wonder. But deep inside
someone knew that a computer free from all those wires and cables would be such a great
That person challenged the technology of computers and answered it with another advanced
technology i.e. the laptop.
Now, you might be thinking who was that person and who invented the laptop? It was
introduced in Japan by Suwa Seikosha’s Yukio Yokozawa.
Laptop, when first introduced in 1982, was the result of revolutionary thinking of one but hard
work of a lot of people. These are just a few examples of how revolutionary thinking has aided
Revolution of Laptops
In the late ’80s and for the entire ’90s, laptops gained quite a hype. They became popular for
their portability. At that time, the concept of a portable device was very different from what it
is now. Not only shape and size but also the purpose of a laptop has revolutionized in the last
three decades. The spectrum of laptop usage has become more and more versatile.
Previously, they were limited to offices only. But now they are present in every house. Owning
a laptop is a necessity for every student. Not only for study purposes, but laptops are also big
sources of entertainment.
Types of Laptops
The revolution of laptops has led to many types of laptops that are currently available. From
Notebooks to Chromebooks, from Ultraportable to touch equipped, you will see a lot of
Depending on the need and use, everyone finds a perfect choice when it comes to laptops.
Many reliable brands manufacture laptops.
The standard in the tech market is being raised every day, making it challenging for the
manufacturers to come up with something innovative and beneficial every time.
Uses of Laptops in Everyday Life
If you have a pair of (observing and vigilant) eyes, then you must have seen them being
efficiently used at a lot of places. There are many places where normal functioning is not even
possible without a laptop.
Think of yourself. Can you live without your laptop? For the sake of an answer, let just say yes,
you do not need to be an office person. You can be a housewife who needs to catch up on an
online lecture or a university student who has assignments to do. Or a kid who wants to relax
after a tiring day by watching his favorite cartoon show.
The uses of laptops are endless but here are a few main ones. I have compiled the uses of
laptops in points for your convenience.
Uses of Laptops in Study
The first and most important one is its use in education. Go to any university or college. You will
not see a single person without a laptop. Be it, students, or instructors, everyone has one.
Teachers have their lectures in it, students have their books in it. And these two are pretty
much the elements that run an educational institute.
However, the uses of the laptop for students are vaster than anyone else. They prepare their
assignments, get their projects done, keep a record of their research, keep their resource
materials all in that one laptop.
It stores books and notes of every subject, so they do not have to carry them at the campus.
Just a laptop and you are good to go to every class.
To benefit from a class, a seminar, or a workshop, a student does not necessarily need to be
there. He can attend it online through his laptop.
Also, students do not need to step out of their room to go for group study. A laptop arranges
that without any hassle.
Uses of Laptop in Marketing
How is the laptop used today has transformed. Its use in the field of marketing is an example.
Any marketing campaign is nothing without the use of technology. A laptop administers or
provides a channel for the use of technology.
Laptops help the marketing teams stay connected and work efficiently. They analyze and
compare the statistics and come up with workable marketing strategies.
The advertising campaigns are now carefully planned than ever. They know their target
audience and as a result, the marketing campaign gets executed successfully.
Also, the laptop being a major communication source has provided the right communication to
the marketing people. They collaborate with people who have similar goals and initiate a more
effective marketing campaign.
With that said, you can think of the benefits of laptop for employees as it is providing them
with more and more chances of growth.
All these advancements were never possible to execute without a laptop in hand. A meeting on
strategies or just a random weekly meeting is incomplete without laptops. Even in other offices,
participants come with their laptops.
They note their points on their laptops and share their concerns.
Uses of Laptop in Banking
A banking system is built on multiple high-quality servers. Banks have the vastest and well-
equipped technical system.
In banks, laptops are performing much of the under-rated tasks. Who provides the details of
every single account holder to the manager that too, at one click? Of course, his laptop.
You have no idea how many people have an account in the bank you have your account. But
the bank’s laptop has all those details.
Also, an important and strong point of any bank is its security. Nobody would keep their money
in a bank which is not secure enough. Here also the laptop has played its due role. A bank’s
security team closely observes the display of security cameras on their laptops.
The manager is also provided access to the screening of the security cameras via his laptop.
Every employee works for the bank on a laptop.
Back in the days when there were no laptops or computers, all the banking was done manually.
Consequently, there were many chances of error which led to the inefficiency of the system.
Laptops have not only made the banking system efficient but secure as well.
Uses of Laptop in Hospital
One of the common uses of a laptop is exhibited at the hospital. An ordinary man has no idea
about the daily OPD count at a big hospital. There are thousands of patients daily. A hospital
must keep a record of all of them.
Not only patients but also the staff and medical supplies are documented. This notifies before
any of the supplies finish especially at the hospital pharmacy. It is known for providing
medication in an emergency. It would be a huge problem if a pharmacy runs out of stock.
All these essential and critical bits of information are stored in various functional laptops of the
hospital. Most importantly, accounts and finance, there is a lot of money coming into the
Also, the salaries of staff are a huge amount of data. All this information is managed and
processed on a laptop.
At a hospital, every doctor has his laptop through which he can access the data of his patients,
their medical history, and their personal information in just one click. Since doctors meet a lot
of people daily, it is impossible to remember each of them.
But it is very easy for their laptop to keep a record of each patient.
Use of Laptop in Home
This one fully explains the laptop features and benefits. At home, the laptops are used for a
variety of purposes. No matter the size of the family, the laptop aka the notebook computer is a
A housewife, who works from home, will not be able to do so without a laptop. All the home-
based office work is done via a laptop.
Homeschooling, the growing trend of schooling your kids in the pre-Montessori years at home
explains the importance of laptops. To homeschool a child, the mother needs to learn a lot of
new techniques. She needs a lot of resources.
And guess who her best friend is in this challenging time? No, it is not her husband, it is her
laptop! A laptop provides a medium to channel and benefit from all that is on the internet.
So, women who think that being a full-time mom has made their laptop a useless device, I urge
them to think again.
Do not sit at home idle. Get yourself enrolled for that course which has been on your wish list
for the longest time. Your laptop will assist you in that.
Do not know the basics of cooking but need to prepare dinner? Do not worry; your laptop has
got your back. It will teach you from basics to master level.
In short, you can learn any skill sitting at home, just with determination, a laptop, and an
internet connection in your hands.
Uses of Laptop in Industry
The use of a laptop in business and industry is quite common. However, it wasn’t so until the
end of the 1900s. Back then, trades and businesses were on a very small scale. But now the
traders have a vast audience and they are flourishing like never. Thanks to technology.
One can even start their business from home with minimum resources. This smart approach of
business powered by technology has empowered a lot of people, especially women.
To begin with, all you need is smart planning, some business knowledge, and a laptop. Keeping
records of your finances, stocks, clients, and investments, you will need a device such as a
A laptop is the secretary of every small-scale entrepreneur that manages the work and helps to
keep up with deadlines.
Also, large scale businesses will not function without technology. Have you seen people
working without any laptop at well-known business firms?
Probably no! They will not be able to function that way. In big businesses, the clients are big,
the deals are big and so is the data and amount of information that needs to be managed. All
this is managed using laptops and computers.
The benefits of a laptop in the office cannot be stressed enough. In any business, either small
scale or big scale, accounts are crucial, and maintaining them is more crucial. It is practically
very difficult to keep the financial records of all the employees and clients manually.
It increases the chances of error. So, here a device such as a laptop comes to the rescue. It
minimizes error and keeps your business’s confidential information safe, secure, and easily
accessible to the right person.
Uses of Laptops in Government Sectors
So, this one is the most important service that provides a laptop. Government sectors run the
country. Any government will not be able to function efficiently if its sectors are incompetent.
The modern era is the era of technology and technology is the new efficiency.
Modern standards of efficiency cannot be met without technology. You have no idea the
number of records each government sector must maintain. They have a record of each citizen
of the country.
Also, information such as occupation, medical record, family, address, background personal
information of every citizen is a part of records in the system of the respective sectors.
In these sectors, these records are managed on laptops and computers. All the contact
between two sectors is made via a laptop using email or a conference call. That pretty much
sums up the importance of laptop.
Uses of Laptop in Education
Like health and internal/external affairs, education is also an integral government sector. It
keeps records of all the educational institutes across the country, their students, and the
faculty. They are responsible for supervising the conduction of examinations.
So, you can better guess the amount of information that is kept within this department. It is
huge. Not all information is kept within a single device, but it is divided according to every
official. So, each official in the education sector manages some of it.
They are stored in laptops for security and the ease of access.
Uses of Laptop in Weather Forecast
The weather forecast is an important department in any country especially the ones with very
drastic weather. At weather forecast stations, all the work is based on research.
The forecaster performs research daily as a part of their job. They collect all the possible data
about the atmosphere. Then they make forecasts based on the information and all their
Everyone at a station has their desk and laptop as they are involved in some extensive research
all the time. This is one of the many advantages of laptops.
A weather forecast station will not function without technology since the job involves a lot of
Advantages of Laptop
Like all other devices, there are advantages and disadvantages of a laptop. But undoubtedly
the advantages are more significant. Like, I have mentioned above the various fields where
technology channels via a laptop.
Pause here for a second and imagine all those fields and workstations without a laptop. What
do you see? Can you even picture your office without a laptop? No, you cannot.
If you cannot, then how can government, big businesses, health, and microeconomy function
without it? I hope you understand why the laptop is important in our life.
Nobody can deny the role of technology in progress. We owe all our success to technology no
matter where we belong to. Like all other forms of technology, the laptop is also an essential
Nobody can function properly without access to a laptop. Be it a student or teacher, an
employee or boss, a President, or his secretory, every workplace is incomplete without it.
We often tend to underestimate the uses of laptops in our daily life, but the truth is that all
this system would collapse without laptops.
