Computer specifications included
Laptop database have 247 fields of specifications, grouped by 21 categories according source website: Naming (7 fields), Main specs (7 fields), Design (12 fields) Processor (15 fields), Memory (9 fields), Display (16 fields), Graphics (16 fields), Storage (15 fields), Optical drive (25 fields), Networking (12 fields), Ports & interfaces (19 fields), Audio (9 fields), Camera (11 fields), Keyboard (9 fields), Performance (6 fields), Software (7 fields), Battery (8 fields), Weight and dimensions (8 fields), Power (6 fields), Security (6 fields), Others (24 fields).
Desktop database have 266 fields of specifications, source website did not had any grouping so I tried to group them myself in similar fashion with laptops database.
Both source websites may have additional fields of specifications available for just a small number of laptops and desktops. I will check them deeper when I will be less busy and add next time I update databases.
Since I made in 2016 a very complete and accurate Mobile Phones Database sourcing data from GSM Arena website, several people asked me if I can make a database of laptops or computers.
This is a trouble: while phones have under case same specifications, and we have websites like gsmarena.com which shows all phone models from most popular manufacturers from 1994 to present, laptop manufacturers produce them with a lot of different specifications under same case, and allow you to further customize them before ordering. Laptops can also be customized aftermarket by anyone. So, any laptops database I make, its accuracy risk to be poor (not match the specifications of laptops available for sale on various websites).
I was myself looking for a laptop of older generation that support Windows XP but not too old to be powerful and have FULL HD screen. I realized that HP EliteBook series was one of the latest laptops with Windows XP support until xx70 generation launched in 2012. While looking on OLX I found multiple sellers and had to ask each one for specifications. I bought an HP EliteBook 8770w which can be found with 3 screen options: 1600×900 TN 1920×1080 TN, 1920×1080 DreamColor IPS, multiple processor options: i5 and i7, RAM memory from 8 to 32 GB, default HDD is 500 MB but the one I bought had 1 TB HDD, and so on. Probably few hundreds different combinations of components under SAME name: Elitebook 8770w.
For a moment I was thinking whenever is useful to make a database of individual computer components rather than whole computers?
Examples (made in 2019):
I can do scraping from websites like https://www.91mobiles.com/laptopfinder.php creating India Laptops Database SAMPLE.xls but these are ONLY laptops currently for sale in India, rather than all laptops ever produced. Also, I do not want to create a database usable only for indians, because we all know how little they pay. I want to make a laptop database that can be purchased by customers from developed countries of Europe and America. Over next months people visiting my websites have suggested a couple of websites, example https://www.notebookcheck.net/ which do not provide data in a consistent format. The salvation came in November 2020 thanks to THIS:
