With the revolution of netbooks have started to make new devices such as memory SSD but what does that mean SSD?
Memory SSD drive is a solid state, ie a secondary storage device made of solid state electronics to replace traditional hard drives. The reports consist of a SSD nonvolatile memory has no moving parts and thus reduces the search time and latency of the conventional hard drives.
It has many advantages over hard drives, and thanks to the emerging market of SSD netbooks reports are being imposed in the technological landscape. The reports are SSD faster start reading and reduce the search time, are less heavy and have lower power consumption. Besides these solid state units are immune to external vibrations which are most suitable for netbooks.
The reports of the current SSD netbooks do not usually exceed 20GB but rapid advances in new technology has ensured that these memories have high capacity SSD. However, prices of high capacity SSD memory is currently too high and we must settle for what they offer us the current netbooks.
At this point all we know and what are netbooks, the benefits we offer and what characterizes them. But why is it a good idea to buy a NETBOOK?
If we compare the netbooks with notebooks netbooks we think are the worst, offer fewer applications or give us a less useful but it is certain that the benefits of NETBOOK are superior to the traditional laptop.
The main advantage is price. For only € 179.00 and can get a computer to give us everything we need to user level, something impossible to think with laptops. Moreover, the ease in transporting NETBOOK due to their low weight and small size eliminates the discomfort that occurs with a travel notebook. Obviously, this reduction in size NETBOOK cause the screen is smaller, which means that it hinders the reading with the original inch NETBOOK. If you want to have a bigger screen at home when we are always able to connect our NETBOOK an external monitor larger.
Furthermore, reports SSD incorporating netbooks are better than hard disks because they have better performance and are not affected by external vibrations, which is a key advantage in netbooks. And the autonomy that is offered at present is very high, reaching the 6-cell battery in some netbooks, enabling up to 6 hours of performance of the device.
In short, buy a NETBOOK is a good idea to appreciate our pocket. It’s the best way to have a laptop that can connect from anywhere in the most convenient.
The Asus Eee Pc 900 is one of the great bets of Asus in the market for netbooks. The Eee PC line has several models very laudable, but all of them, the Asus Eee PC 900 is the cheapest model, which is not synonymous with lack of benefits.
Among the main features of the Asus Eee PC 900 SSD memory are part of the latest technology developed for netbooks. It has a 16GB hard drive, the SSD memory storage of the sacrifices in exchange for the NETBOOK has much better performance. To compensate, we can buy portable hard drive or pen drive to 32GB.
The battery of the Asus Eee Pc 900 is four cells, which ensures a duration of between 2.5 and 4 hours. The processor used is Intel Celeron M 353 and Ethernet and WiFi connectivity b / g. The Asus Eee Pc 900 carries an integrated 1.3 megapixel web camera (in other netbooks is only or 3MP.), Microphone and speakers. Its screen is 8.9 “and weighs 0.99 kg and is one of the lightest netbooks of the full range Eee Pc.
The Asus Eee Pc 900 with Linux or Windows XP as the Version. The Linux used by Asus is emerging as the great discovery for most users. As operating system for netbooks is the most recommended since it does not overload the processor and RAM, which is one of the major limitations of netbooks.
Ultimately, a team recommended for anyone who needs to use the Internet, email and office applications like Word, Excel and Power Point or OpenOffice equivalents in highly mobile environments such as travel, customer visits, presentations, etc..
Very interesting, and above all different, there is the Asus Eee 1008HA. First of all, the design has been extremely careful in comparison with other models of Eee now incorporates a much more rounded finish and a white although already present in some previous ultra of the brand, now seems to emphasize more.
Apart from the visual aspect, the Asus Eee 1008HA has a specification for something other than PC. With a size of 10 inches (where were the first Eee 7 inch screen?) Whose resolution is still unknown, mounted an Intel Atom micro unspecified, but possibly will be the N280 to 1.66 GHz and a slight evolution of the first generation of Atoms (but still have only one nucleus).
Not yet have notified all the characteristics of the team but obviously at CeBIT will multitáctil a trackpad, Bluetooth, HSDPA and WiMAX connectivity (optional) integrated in the team, along with a WiFi 802.11n weighing 1.1 kilograms . As I said its size is 10 inches, but despite this include a keyboard with a size of 92% compared with a conventional keyboard.
The characteristics that have the Asus Eee 1008HA rioja placed a small step ahead of other ultra currently available. With regard to the price also seems to be slightly higher, although not to the levels of, say, the Sony Vaio Q: Eee 1008HA for about 600 euros out of the base price and will be available in spring.
Dell has just introduced, its new Tablet PC: Latitude XT2 with touch screen and multiple features designed to enhance security, increase performance and prolong battery life.
An ultra-portable that plays with more to come from the company most trusted by the users of computers and laptops at this time, with a lightweight design and much thinner than any of its competitors.
Talking about the capacity of the multi-touch Latitude XT2 would almost repetitive, since Dell has not spared the time to combine technologies for tactile displacement is negligible and the results surprising, either zoom, pan, rotation and how much application you can think of.
In the more technical aspects are talking about a Tablet PC with Core 2 Duo processor, 1GB of RAM (expandable to 5GB) and 80GB hard drive.
Although its star feature is undoubtedly the 6-cell battery that allows use of up to 11 hours, although many attributed this long durability andalusia Intel low.
You can purchase directly from the official site of Dell, its base price is $ 2399, what change would mean about 1864 euros.
The fact is that Dell has once again doubled the bet and each day is much stronger in a market with almost cannibal to competition concerns.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to discover the Compaq C755ES, a laptop that is not of this world without a powerful processor and lots of RAM, but that if, at a price fairly close.
Usually I do not like to go for the latest CPU and graphics card when I buy a laptop or desktop. If you want to pay more for the latest novelty than actual benefits.
And building on that now is a time when the teams current benefits offered more than enough for any domestic application, I see no need to invest more than necessary to purchase a computer.
The Compaq C755ES offers such basic features we need for any office job, to play at home to connect to the Internet, and generally perform 99.9% of the tasks usually done with the laptop.
This computer has an Intel Dual Core T2310 at 1.46 GHz with 2 GB of RAM and 120 Gbs of hard disk. A 15.4-inch screen, DVD burner and wifi. Come on, a team normalito benefits but covering almost all our needs.
The best part is the price, as they could find it in El Corte Inglés for 399 euros thanks to the offerings last. With this understand that the price value for money make it an option to consider.
In addition, the customer service is the HP, so we are assured, without need for our home insurance will be responsible for reinstalling the operating system. Anyway, you already know my opinion and if you want something more you can try the daily seo.
Dell and Susan G. Komen for the Cure have recently announced that they are to partner up and raise funds for breast cancer research and community-based programs for breast health education and screening.
Dell are producing a “Promise Pink” range of laptops and this version will be available on most of the Dell laptop range including Dell Studio laptops, Inspiron laptops, the XPS M1330 model and the popular Inspiron Mini netbook range. For each Promise Pink laptop Dell sell, they will donate $5 to the foundation in a plan to raise $250,000.
Many netbooks come installed with Linux or Windows XP, with seldom netbooks having Vista installed. Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 7 has proved popular with many users and netbook owners. After reading many articles and posts about Windows 7 on netbooks, I thought it was time I gave it a whirl, as while I got accustomed to using XP again, I did miss the features and appearance of Vista.
Partitioning my existing hard drive with XP installed unfortunately didn’t go as planned so dual booting isn’t possible. Windows 7 however installed absolutely fine using an external USB DVD reader and it’s still possible to access and use the files stored on the XP partition. The installation of Windows 7 took under 30 minutes with an additional 30 minutes installing my regular programs and applications. The drivers for the Wifi don’t work straight away and you need to either download the MSI Wind drivers for XP/Vista, or connect the netbook to the internet via ethernet cable and allow Windows 7 to download the 5 (at time of writing) small updates, including the wifi driver. The onscreen display for volume, brightness, bluetooth and wifi connectivity are also not installed with Windows 7, but you can download the System Control Manager from here to install this feature.
While it doesn’t run as smoothly as I’d previously read it did, it is a lot quicker than my Vista based desktop, which in many cases, has double or even triple the specifications found on the Advent 4211. I started with a few applications open and installing others. Opening and extracting files with Winrar caused a slight problem with Firefox with the browser freezing. However since all the applications I usually install were installed, I went for the most extreme case of programs running and the netbook didn’t react negatively. With three Firefox windows open, Windows Music Player, Photoshop, MSN, and Windows Mail open I switched between the different programs with ease and no slow down.
As I usually have that many applications open, the taskbar can become very cluttered, but with the default settings of Windows 7, the taskbar is easy to manouver and switch between programs. Within the taskbar options, you have the choice of combining the taskbar buttons with no information, or allowing them to combine when the taskbar is full, or never combining. I’ve had a play around with the various settings and while the taskbar buttons can take a bit getting used to, they’re perfect for the small screen size if like me you have many windows open at a time. An option is also provided for switching to small icons. The below screenshot shows the taskbar items combined while full and always combine options with the smaller icons option being displayed in the last toolbar.
Other features I’ve been impressed with on Windows 7 is the desktop preview which has worked flawlessly for me, with no delay. The Tasks option on the Start Menu has also proved very useful, and again the Advent 4211 experiences no slow down while using this feature.
Over all I’m very impressed with Windows 7 and will be installing it on my desktop soon. I’m also very impressed with how well it runs on the netbook. I can easily see it becoming the most popular OS for netbooks once it’s released especially as many of the features benefit the screensize.
After having my Advent 4211 for four months, I thought it was time a review was posted up about it. The Advent 4211 is a rebadged MSI Wind U100 exclusive to UK retailer PC World. The 4211 comes with the same specs you would find on an MSI Wind U100 including a 10 inch screen, 80GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, Intel Atom N270 processor and Windows XP Home installed. Available for £280 it’s price is slightly higher than it’s Eee PC counterparts, but considering the specifications over the lower priced netbooks it is a good deal. Since purchasing the 4211b, PC World have now got the 4211c in stock which for the same price features a 160GB hard drive making this netbook an even better deal.
While I had moved on to Windows Vista on my other machines the change back to XP was smooth and easy making the operation system a selling point of this machine, a Linux based model, while cheaper would require getting to know a whole new OS. Service Pack 3 is pre-installed on the netbook so there’s no lengthy updates to go through.
The 10 inch display is very easy to get accustomed to. While some applications you may face difficulties with the OK or Accept button going below the task bar, which isn’t a problem for those who have Auto Hide Toolbar enabled. Likewise the keyboard is very easy to adapt to using and is very sturdy. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts on various applications and some laptops I’ve used have been unnatural to use for keyboard shortcuts, but the Advent 4211 keyboard is nicely spaced out.
Other specifications found on the 4211 include bluetooth, Wifi, built in web cam and microphone, giving it great connectivity options. Cyberlink YouCam is pre-installed on the netbook which could easily rival Apple’s iBooth as just as much fun can be had from the software.
Japanese electronics company Sotec have just updated their netbook range by replacing the current C101 model with an all new C102 model of netbook. Sotec will be gradually releasing their new netbook starting on January the 24th.
The Sotec C102 is available in platinum silver or rich black and features a 10.1 inch display, is powered by an Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz) plus Intel 945GSE chipset and comes installed with 1GB RAM and a 160GB SATA HD. Other specifications include a webcam and a card reader, all pretty standard fare for a lot of netbooks but, notably the C102 will feature draft-N WiFi support.
