What is Generation in Laptop and How to check it?

In the context of laptops, “generation” typically refers to the release cycle of a particular series or model of processors that are used in the laptop.

The processor is one of the most important components in a laptop, as it performs the majority of the processing tasks that the computer needs to perform. Processor manufacturers, such as Intel and AMD, release new generations of processors every year or so.

Each generation of processors typically features improvements in performance, power efficiency, and features compared to the previous generation. The newer generations also tend to be more expensive.

It is a very important aspect to consider when purchasing a laptop, and other factors such as the graphics card, memory, storage, and build quality also play an important role in determining a laptop’s performance and suitability for specific tasks.
