Printers, scanners, faxes, multifunction printers

Faxes, I start with them, because rarely buy a fax home. A little bit about faxes, in fact it is a mixture of several devices, a printer, a scanner and a modem with a telephone. Unfortunately, they cannot be used separately. The main task of a fax is to transmit documents by telephone (more precisely, by telephone line). Faxes use plain and thermal paper in their work. Plain paper refers to A4 paper, as well as smaller sizes. Everyone saw the thermal paper too, now most of the checks are printed on it. Unlike plain paper, thermal paper comes in rolls. Hence, advertising is not uncommon, on some faxes, “AutoCut.” Thermal transfer (for plain paper), thermal paper, inkjet, laser printing, faxes are now printed using such methods. The opinion about the method can be very subjective, and the technology is now constantly improving, but they read thermal paper from the worst (and cheapest) printing, and laser printing is the best. Inkjet printing has not taken root. Otherwise, in Continue reading

Choosing a Laptop

The first thing I want to say is not to confuse laptops with netbooks. Unfortunately, in the price lists they are all under the name of laptops, but it’s good that not all. They differ, as a rule, in weight, for laptops it is from 2 with a small (somewhere 2.2-2.4) kg or more. Netbooks weigh closer to 1kg. Also, for laptops, the screen size starts from 12 inches, respectively, for netbooks up to 12 inches.

So, let’s get back to choosing a laptop. Whether you buy it or not, it depends only on you, but it is worthwhile to analyze a bit the reasons and goals of the purchase. There are always only two reasons: 1) need, for example, is necessary for work; 2) I just want to, this is also not a rare phenomenon, i.e. this is Continue reading

Motherboard

A motherboard is one of the main boards (components) of a computer. It is designed to connect the remaining components of the computer into something single called the system unit. The motherboard provides branching and power supply energy of all components, it also physically connects the components, and provides control of the physical connection and work. For example, if we draw an analogy with a car, the processor will be the motor, and the motherboard will be the body … although this is not a good comparison.
There are a sufficient number of motherboard standards, but the most common are ATX, MicroATX (mATX), in short, they differ in the size of the board itself, naturally on a smaller smaller slot for additional components, but they are often not installed.

The main characteristics of the motherboard can be called: processor slot, north and south bridge models, memory type and memory speed, integrated video card (if any), various ext. Features and Continue reading
