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.

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

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
