Nettop Choice

Nettop, like the netbook, was introduced by Intel at the release of the Atom processor. That is, in essence, it is the same as a netbook only in the form of a computer (stationary). In fact, it is an ordinary computer with only less power and price. Packed in a small case. It is also worth saying that the monitor is not always attached to nettops, do not forget about it. But there are fully equipped computers, right down to the mouse with the keyboard. But unfortunately, so far this type of computer has not received wide distribution, unlike the same netbook.
The main focus of the nettop is considered to be work with documents and the Internet; in fact, for this purpose it was created. Unlike a conventional personal computer, nettops do not imply the possibility of replacing components at home, primarily because of the extremely small size of the computer. The power supply for computers is remote. Otherwise, they are not fundamentally different from an ordinary computer.

Surely some are asking the question “why?”, Because there is a hard drive, there is memory in the processor. The answer is simple, the need to store more and more operational data is constantly growing and the processor memory (cache) is very small for that, with regards to the hard disk, some data is stored on it, but only a part, the speed of RAM is much faster than the speed of working with hard disk, because RAM is used.

The main characteristics of RAM are: memory type, memory speed, timings, form factor, volume.
Type of memory – with the development of technology and computer technology, more and more types of memory appear, more precisely, newer ones remove old ones from the market. At the moment, DDR3 is common, although so Continue reading
