Read About Notebook Computers, But Be Prepared To Make the Switch!
No — a notebook is not a small, leather-bound writing journal, but a powerful electronic device that could soon form the core component of your university career. Now’s a perfect opportunity to invest in a new powerful addition to your computing arsenal — and thanks to great warranties and lower prices, it won’t mean breaking the bank to do so.
Notebook computers (or workstations) are laptops that typically weigh between five and eight kilograms and can fit easily into a carry-on bag or briefcase, which means it’s easy to carry around campus from class to class. They use flat panel technology to produce an effective lightweight display screen, which can show very sharp images with amazing resolution.Screen clarity for notebooks is far beyond that of the consumer-grade laptop. In addition, memory spaces and disk drives go far beyond what a casual consumer would ever need in a portable computer, making them ideal for design students who need to work with multiple demanding programs at once.
Workstation batteries usually have a lasting power of up to five hours – longer than any class would ever be. Unlike with personal laptops and desktop computers, the batteries won’t fail, and your notebook won’t overheat or cause work-stalling delays. A longer life can be ensured by regular defragmentation (i.e., backing up your data in order to prevent drainage of space and batteries). Investing in an external mouse, external speakers, PC cards, an unplugged Bluetooth and/or an unplugged iPod can also help to ensure that your notebook computer will last longer.
Since notebooks are so portable, they offer the great advantage of letting you work just about anywhere on the planet, making them the ideal device for the student who lives on campus. This is a very handy feature for those who live in particularly rowdy dormitories and need to travel to find a peaceful work station. Notebook computers have their own built-in DVD players, multiple built-in USB ports, a built-in microphone, digital photographing output, a built-in Webcam and a fire wire ports, which lets you take an office or all the benefits of a desktop computer with you on the road. Newer models are lighter, resistant to bumps, short falls, and spills, and have enhanced security features to keep confidential information safe and away from prying eyes.
