It’s been a long time since laptops have changed much in their core design, but that’s just the external perspective.
On the inside though, the laptop’s evolution has been profound over the last decade, and especially in the last five years.
A modern laptop is not just some lighter, weaker, and mobile version of its desktop counterpart; it’s a completely different class of PC of its own.
In this post, we will identify and highlight the three most important factors that have revolutionized the mobile PC from inside.
Powerful Built-in Graphics Processors
Pressure sensitive displays in high resolution are practical options on extremely thin 2-in-1 laptops like the ThinkPad Yoga X1 or the Surface Pro 7+ these days, which is quite amazing.
It’s amazing because they carry enough processing power in them to run everything from 3D CAD designing software tools to even AAA video games on their high-resolution displays, despite the ultra-thin frame.
This was made possible thanks to how far the silicon giants have come in their ability to manufacture a single chip (APU) that’s powerful enough to house an extremely powerful CPU and a highly capable GPU together.

Separation of Semi-Conductor Production Lines
Not too long ago, processors and graphics cards were developed for desktops first and then for laptops.
Laptop-exclusive processors were launched every now and then, but they were hardly anything that could be used by power users or professionals. That changed a few years back when both Intel and AMD separated the laptop and desktop production lines.
For example, did you realize that AMD Ryzen 6000-series of processors were exclusive to laptops? Although Intel pulled ahead with their 12th Gen M (mobile/laptop) processors, the Ryzen 6000 series does offer amazing value for money.
Windows Touchscreen Integration
When Microsoft decided to give up completely on the smartphone market and focused all their resources into improving Windows, touchscreen integration was one of their main priorities.
Now, it should be noted that Windows 7 had touchscreen support even before that point, but the integration was incomplete and buggy.
It was, for the most part, treated as a gimmick rather than a really useful feature.
Fast forward to 2022 and Windows 11 is fully optimized for touchscreens while no other desktop OS can match up to how well Microsoft has embedded the touch interface into Windows.
The changes were gradual of course, which allowed OEMs time to innovate and introduce bult-in hardware that could support the ever developing range of touch-enabled features in Windows.
As a result of that combined effort, touchscreen laptops and 2-in-1 tablet PCs now present a brand new horizon of possibilities to users.
The unique advantage of being able to use a mouse, a keyboard, a stylus, and one’s own fingers seamlessly on a Windows touchscreen laptop has ushered in a new era of creativity and boosted productivity within both the personal and the commercial PC markets.
Due to the flexible, lightweight, and mobile form factor inherent to laptops, touchscreen laptops and tablet PCs are now the go-to device for a wide range of creative professionals from digital artists, 3D designers, and graphic artists, to media producers, content creators, and architects.
