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
Installation is performed in this order: first, the processor, cooler, random access memory (RAM), motherboard, video card, power supply, hard drive and optical drive. Also consider the problems when you turn it on.
It is most convenient to start assembling the computer by installing the processor, cooler and memory modules on the motherboard, while it is not yet installed in the case. Of course, you can first put the motherboard in the case, and then put the processor. But in this case, it is unlikely to get a cooler without Continue reading
I’ll start with the upgrade, as it can slightly influence the decision of what is right for you. Upgrade (Upgrade) – this word means updating or improving what is, in this case, a computer. This issue, upgrade, does not apply to laptops. Due to the difficulties of assembly, upgrades to laptops and netbooks are not carried out.
So, after working for some time on the computer, you began to conceive that new programs do not work so fast, you also feel a lack of power in games, and you wondered “what to do?”. There are three Continue reading
A video card is also a graphics accelerator, a computer component responsible for outputting images and generating graphics, for example, in games. The video card is necessary for the computer to work, otherwise it just won’t start, and the picture doesn’t appear. At the moment, there are various types of accelerators, for home systems (desktop), mobile (laptops, communicators and even telephones), for semi-professional and professional use. There are also differences in “acceleration goals”, there are two-dimensional graphics accelerators (2D) and three-dimensional graphics accelerators (3D). 2D accelerators do not always work with 3D graphics, but they are more likely to be semi-professional and professional accelerators; they serve mainly for working, for example, with photography (for example, in magazines that print). But do not think that 3D accelerators do not work with 2D graphics, they work! just focus on 3D. Video cards for home computers are all 3D accelerators.
The main parameters of video cards can be called: graphics processor, type and amount of memory, Continue reading
Random access memory – it is the RAM (RAM), it is also an opertivka. Serves for temporary storage of data with which the central processor works. 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
