A laptop, desktop computer, or Ultrabook is a small, compact personal computer usually equipped with a touch screen, a keyboard and some random port. It can be used in the same way a desktop computer can, only with a smaller screen and smaller processor speed. The laptop became commercially available in the late 1990s. It was originally designed for people who traveled on business trips, and their main purpose was to replace their desktop computers with something more lightweight and easily portable. Ever since then, laptops have become very popular with laptop owners, whether for business or personal use.
Laptops differ from desktops in many ways such as size, portability, and processing power. Laptops can either be built by the laptop manufacturers themselves or bought off of the shelf. Prebuilt laptops may be found in most retail stores. You can also find laptops online, through e-mail deliveries, and factory seconds that are re-manufactured through other means. Pre-built laptops can also be purchased directly from the laptop manufacturer, or through specialized e-mail order websites.
There are several basic features to consider when shopping for a laptop computer. First, you should choose a laptop with the right size for your needs. Notebooks are available in different sizes and display resolution. For example, if you will be using the laptop computer for email, word processing, Internet browsing, and a small photo and video editing tasks, you will probably want a laptop with a low-end integrated graphics card, a maximum of 1 GB of RAM, and at least a four-year warranty on parts and labor. Laptops with these specifications will be much less expensive.
Many laptop computers come standard with one to two gigabytes of hard drive space, depending on the laptop configuration. Some laptops have up to six gigabytes of hard drive space. If you need more memory, look for laptops that include some type of external hard drive or graphics cards.
Another important feature to look for in a laptop is whether it is laptop friendly or desktops friendly. Both desktops and laptops are usually equipped with various tools designed to help you get more work done in less time. However, desktops often have built-in software programs that may conflict with laptop programs. Also, desktops usually have more ports while laptops typically have fewer ports.
Notebook computers are usually powered by one of two main technologies - Intel Integrated Graphics or AMD Graphics Processing Units (GPGs). The majority of laptop computers are based on Intel processors because these units provide the fastest speeds and are more affordable than AMD processors. Laptop computers can also use the AMD Athlon processors. While these processors are usually more expensive, they are usually one hundred percent compatible with all laptop models. They do, however, run cooler and are available for even smaller laptops.
Depending on what applications you use your laptop for, you may want to consider buying a laptop with multiple hard drives. Laptops can now hold as much information as five standard hard drives. This means that you can save more and access data faster on your laptop if you need to do so. Notebooks also generally come with multiple ports including four USB ports, two FireWire ports and one eSATA port. Having multiple ports makes it easier to connect electronic devices such as printers and scanners to your laptop computer.
When comparing laptops with desktop computers, it is important to note that most laptop computers are designed to be used with their keyboards. Although some notebooks have been manufactured with detachable keyboards, it is not recommended that you purchase this laptop computer accessory. Doing so will require you to remove your keyboard, which could present security and safety issues. A laptop computer should always be protected from unauthorized detachable parts.
