Netbook Choice

Netbook, actually you could hear, or if you saw, decide that this is a laptop, just a small one. Actually, many stores throw them in one pile, but the netbook is not a laptop.
If the laptop, you can say, is a “stripped down” version of the computer, then the netbook, in turn, is a “stripped down” version of the laptop. But if laptops use full-sized parts (accessories), only upgraded specifically for the laptop, then the netbook already uses smaller parts (accessories), for example, the same processor. In general, a netbook is no different from a computer or laptop, there is also a processor, motherboard, RAM, etc. And how to replace parts in a laptop is almost not possible, so you should remember this before choosing.

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

Monitor

The monitor is no secret to anyone, it shows us a picture, it’s difficult to work without it. At the moment, on the market you can find LCD monitors. In fact, there are two monitor formats, so to speak, ordinary and widescreen. Normal, this is a monitor with an aspect ratio of 4: 3, widescreen have several ratios, but mostly it’s 16: 9. In general, now, if you do not take the old technologies, there are several options for the display: LCD (LCD), plasma panel (PDP, no monitors, but there are TVs), OLED (so far new), and laser (so far only plans) . I mentioned televisions because they are increasingly being put on like a monitor for a computer, but this is a personal matter.
So, in stores we can find LCD and OLED monitors, we are waiting for laser ones. They are distinguished by a higher quality image, greater contrast, etc. To put it simply, the LCD is the first technology, and then the development goes on, OLED is the second, the laser technology is the 3rd, but this is for monitors.

A monitor is a component of a computer that hardly changes or rarely changes, so you should approach it more carefully. You can certainly write a lot about its characteristics, and I will write, briefly, but the Continue reading
