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.
Such computers are well suited for office work or work with documents, as well as for studying, especially if Continue reading
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
Now we will consider the question of choosing a personal computer (PC). Immediately it is worth noting that the examples below are taken from the price list of the DNS store (federal network) for January-February 2011.
So, you have decided to buy a computer. As a rule, the question immediately arises, which computer or laptop is better? (how many times have I heard this) It is worth saying here that a laptop is more convenient, it takes up less space, it is mobile, but it is more expensive than a personal computer of similar capacity, and accordingly a laptop of similar price will be less powerful. So if the occupied Continue reading
