Your Questions About Most Unique Laptops

John asks…

Are sager laptops reliable?

They have some really amazing graphic card options for less when compared to alienware and asus. So are they a reliable brand? Why aren’t they reviewed by pcmag and cnet? will it last for like 4 years?

steve answers:

No It is Ok
Toshiba
If you are looking for low cost, high performance laptops, Toshiba is one of the best laptop brands to opt for. They have delivered one of best netbooks in the form of Toshiba Mini NB305 and one of the best laptops in the form of Toshiba Satellite E205. One of the most innovative laptop brands, Toshiba is a good choice when you want to make a budget choice. Even if it’s not the cheap laptop brand (2010), it certainly offers many products in the low cost range.

HP
HP was and still remains one of the biggest and best laptop computer manufacturers in the world. HP is a pioneer when it comes to bringing about innovation in laptop technology. It scores in terms of performance but has seen a dip in popularity due to its lackluster customer support. It’s the only laptop computer manufacturer company that can supply you with custom made products according to your requirements. HP still remains one of the best, despite a large amount of competition from other brands. The sheer range and variety of products makes it one of the most unique laptop brands.

Dell
If you want to buy a quality product and price is no issue, then Dell remains one of the best choices. The reason why it’s the best laptop brand 2010, in terms of quality, features and performance is its reliability. The Dell Vostro and Studio lines are some of the best in the business with a great combination of features, geared towards top performance. It is tough to single out one as the fastest laptop brand (2010), but it could be a Dell product with its power packed features. With this, we reach the end of best laptop brands list for 2010.

Robert asks…

About IP address . Does each laptop has a unique IP number ?

Somebody stole my friend laptop … I wonder if I can find it through the IP address on internet …. I think that the internet provider allocates an IP address number , but each laptop has a unique IP . Does anyone knows if the manufacturer knows the IP of each laptop ???…..Its a TOSHIBA …

Thank you

steve answers:

The internet connection has an IP address – the laptop uses it.

The laptop’s internet adapter has a MAC (Media Access Control) address (2 of them if it has a wired and a wireless adapter), but you can’t trace that on the internet, only if you can find the computer.

Helen asks…

What is the world’s best smallest laptop?

steve answers:

Sony has some pretty unique small laptops, The new UX Micro is small and pretty interesting way of collapsing. It’s about 1.2 pounds.
Sony’s Ultra-Portable (TX) line is also pretty neat with Wireless (WIFI), Bluetooth and WWAN. A number of executives i used to work for bought up ‘em like hotcakes because they travelled a lot. The XBRITE screen is also pretty easy on the eyes. It’s about 2.5 pounds.

Http://www.sonystyle.com/is-bin/INTERSHOP.enfinity/eCS/Store/en/-/USD/SY_BrowseCatalog-Start?CategoryName=cpu_benefits_1&Dept=computers

The next best is probably the Dell line. I like the X1 a lot. It’s only 2.5 pounds as well.

Your Questions About Tablet Android

Mary asks…

if i change my nookcolor into a full android tablet can i change it back?

I’ve been seeing online that i can hack my nook color into a full android tablet but if i do am i able to have go back to being a nook color?

steve answers:

Yes, IF YOU DO IT RIGHT!!

I wanted to stress that point because there are many, many companies online that tell you how to do it or that sell their method which roots the internal memory of the Nook. They claim it is safe, legal, and works better.

I can tell you that 1. It immediately voids your warranty, 2. It can easily damage the internal memory of the Nook making it worthless!!

That being said, there is a way to do it that does NOT void your warranty and that is completely legal!

If you use a micro SD card with Android running on it, then you can root it without affecting the original Nook OS. Basically, when you boot up with the card in, you have the fully functional Android Tablet. When you take it out, it is back to the way the Nook was before you used the card. It is really that simple.

Go to this website to learn more. Www.Nook2Android.com If you decide to buy the card from them, they include a ton of extras, such as dual boot, Netflix hack, Hulu, Angry Birds, Pandora, and many, many more!! They have a ton of great feedback, amazing customer service, and a ton of fans on Facebook that can tell you how great they are!!

Good luck!!

Lizzie asks…

why are android tablets so cheap?

and why are android table good to ,not good to have . what are the best tables because i don’t want to spend Alto of money .don’t want to buy a Laptop
things i want it to do
1 get internet access
2 take pictures and do i really need a tablet if i have the SAMSUNG galaxy s3
my mom is buying the SAMSUNG galaxy s3 and i might buy a tablet i wont all Yale input

steve answers:

Android tablets are cheaper than the iPad because you aren’t paying for the Apple logo on the back.
IOS does have a sleeker user experience and more app support, however the price tag does not reflect the hardware capabilities compared to that of an Android tablet.

My pick for this year so far would be the Nexus 7. It’s a decent size, a fantastic price point, and excellent hardware inside. Because it’s a Nexus (Google branded), you know it’s good quality.

Please be extremely wary of *very* cheap tablets such as those from Chinese companies or other unknown brands. These will usually fall into the $100 price range. They are not worth your money. You may only want to browse the net and take pictures, and this is what they can do, but they will be sluggish, they won’t have the proper Google Play market, and they will usually have an outdated version of Android. They will probably never receive Android OS updates either.

If you need a bigger screen than the Nexus 7 then consider the Samsung tab range. Excellent quality for the price.

Whether you feel the need to have a tablet as well as an Android phone is totally up to you.

Charles asks…

Apple IPad or Android tablet?

I’ve really been wanting an iPad so for Christmas my boyfriend is looking into it, but we came across the android tablet shopping today and its definitely a more reasonable cost and does all the same things and iPad does I’m sure? The employee at best buy says the tablet, so my question is which one? Is the tablet really just as good as the iPad?

steve answers:

I have an Android tablet (Acer Iconia A100, a year old), and an ex of mine had an iPhone 4S that I played with a lot. Honestly, they’re both capable of largely the same things except that Flash isn’t compatible with iOS, nor do they have expandable memory with MicroSD cards. Some people find the iOS easier to use; personally I found it a pain. Android is a lot more customizable and just feels less limited and rigid in how it functions.

The one thing I felt his iPhone had over my tablet was the better looking screen, but considering his phone had Retina (i think that’s what it is called) and my tablet didn’t, it wasn’t so much a big deal. His phone was brand new, and my tablet was among the last to be sold with Android Honeycomb on it.

I can readily suggest the Acer Iconia tablets, the newer ones are much nicer than the one I purchased a year ago. I believe Nexus tablet and Asus Transformers also have good reviews and reliability.

My major suggestion in this though is seriously to go to a store, play with the iPad and an Android tablet, and see which you prefer. One isn’t really better than the other; it really, really boils down to preference.

Joseph asks…

Best 10.1″ Android Tablet?

What is the best Android Tablet out day? And latest version of Android out?

steve answers:

Samsung galaxy note pro is the best tablet in the market and it is the latest tablet in the market. It is the best because of its impressive specs that no other tablet has higher than this tablet in everyday. It battery life, screen resolution and other specs cannot be compared with any other tablets. No one can beat this. It is expensive but it's worth. Starting at $749 for 32 GB model, while 64GB model will cost $849. If you like your tablets to come with LTE, the Pro 12.2 will be available through Verizon Wireless.

If you want to look for its specs and want to compare it with other tablets go to phonearena.com. Once you go there, type Samsung galaxy note pro. There will be two option review and just it's specs page. If you go one the specs page you can look at its specs and even compare it by clicking on compare button.

I hope that this will help you.

Your Questions About Acer

Donna asks…

Acer SensorTouch Technology?

just bough an acer monitor and it says it has “Acer SensorTouch Technology” anyone know what theyre talking about? its not a touchscreen

steve answers:

Acer SensorTouch is an advanced sensing solution that takes advantage of capacitive technology. When the finger touches the surface of a capacitive device, a high sensitivity sensor automatically detects the contact, even the lightest tap, and executes the command or function in seconds. In developing SensorTouch technology, Acer has made dedicated sensitive tests to ensure soft-touch operability.
A power saving solution, Acer SensorTouch controls allow effortless use and navigation of the display settings. The SensorTouch intuitive controls give the display a smooth and streamlined look, for an overall sleek and polished aspect, while sequential LED illumination when the monitor is turned on enhances usability and adds an appealing visual effect.

That’s what i found basically it means the buttons are really sensitive, so that the monitor looks nice and streamlined i believe.

Michael asks…

Acer laptop compared to others?

Need inputs on Acer laptops as compared to Dell, HP or Compaq laptop.

steve answers:

Acer is one of the most trusted brands in the world, but unfortunately it cannot compete with HP. For me, it is on the same level as Dell, and acer can raise its standards. Almost all of their laptops are reasonably priced and are of great quality. If u are ready to spend big, the acer ferrari series has the potential to become as good as Hp. This is my table –

1) HP
2) Acer
3) Dell

All acer laptops caome with warrantyes as good as Hp, and most of all the same specs ie vista, ram, hdd, cpu, etc

William asks…

do you use a acer pc?

are the acer computer reliable/any good (not laptop)
what is your opinion on them please?

steve answers:

Acer are now the second largest producer of computers in the world so they can’t be all bad. I have had an Acer laptop for 5 years (the same one) and have four Acer PCs at the office that we bought three years ago for the staff to use. Although replacements we will be buying shortly will be custom built these Acers have given us no trouble at all (Vista however is a different story) and I would certainly reccommend them

Your Questions About Netbook Computers

Robert asks…

Are the Dell Netbooks good to use in college?

I need a laptop for my senior year, but I want one that I can use in college as well. I don’t want to spend a lot of money, so I was looking at the Dell Netbook PC computers. However, would a netbook be able to store documents and notes for my classes? I’m trying to find something that has a good price, yet will be able to run a program like OneNote. If you don’t think a netbook will work, please give me other suggestions. Thanks!

steve answers:

Dont waste your money on a netbook, the dell site starts selling netbooks for 299, that is a waste considering you may need a dvd drive for your classes. If you absolutely dont want to spend an extra 50-100 bucks, then try this laptop from bestbuy. Its 299.

Michael asks…

Desktop and wireless internet help please?

I have a netbook computer and I had wireless internet installed. The router was built in to my internet box from the company. My mother is here now and is trying to hook up her desktop to my internet. She tried running a cord to the box and the telephone line. Im clueless about desktops, so how can I hook her up to my internet?

steve answers:

Not sure what kind of router you have but most desktops do not come with wireless. If you want to go wireless get a USB “N” adapter, install the drivers and away you go. If you have extra LAN ports on your router, run an Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports and ther other end goes to the desktop, ONLY one phone line to the DSL router, do not run a phone line from your moms desktop to the DSL router – Ethernet ONLY or Wireless

Regards

Mark asks…

Has anyone bought an EZbookPC netbook advertised for $179?

I just saw this advertised in the newspaper for $179 and when I looked in Google, there are lots of hits for it. I wonder if anyone out there has bought one and if so, what do you think of it? I would be interested in it if it is a decent little netbook computer.

steve answers:

It only has a 2gb hd which isnt enough. For 50 or 100 dollars more you can get a small laptop with 160gb and 1 gb ram not 256. I bought a acer on sale for 230 with xp it has 160gb hd 1.6ghzprocesor 1 gb ram. It is a awesome little pc. In fact when i was younger my desktop was slower with little memory and this little laptop smokes it and cost way less.

Your Questions About Cheap Laptops At Best Buy

John asks…

What is the cheapest way to get windows xp on 5 laptops. All of them need to have legitimate licenses too.?

I have purchased several cheap laptops, they just need an OS. XP seems to be the best option for them because they are pretty old. I want to buy several keys for XP but I can’t really find a cheap price on the pretty out dated OS. Is there any discount on buying multiple licenses or anything of that nature?

steve answers:

I save some money by buying 3-packs (tigerdirect). Perhaps there is a 5-pack. (OS installs with multiple licenses).

Edit: OK. I went to look. Tigerdirect doesn’t sell XP anymore, but you can find it still from other sources. Just use your favorite search engine and start shopping.

Susan asks…

Is there a laptop I can buy for the purpose of upgrading the graphics card?

I want to play games like DayZ that have high spec. requirement. Can I buy a cheap laptop and hook up high end graphics ?

steve answers:

No point. You’d be wasting money, because the CPU wouldn’t be able to handle it.

Might as well build a new desktop PC.

Robert asks…

What brand of laptop would be best for me to get?

I asked my mother to buy me a laptop for Christmas, and nothing else. No clothes, nothing. She still thinks the $550 laptop I picked out costs too much, but if I go any cheaper, it will not do what it is I need it to do! And we fight over THIS desktop now as it is. Get me a cheaper laptop, I might as well stick with this old thing. Help?

steve answers:

Sometime you can find acer of compaq laptops at bestbuy for 399 os 499. Im getting a laptop for christmas that cost $550 but im paying for all but $250 of it

Helen asks…

What am I supposed to look for when purchasing a laptop?

Hi,

As you can tell from the title, I have never bought or taken interest in a laptop before and, well, now I need one. But I don’t know what to look for.
I have a highly limited budget of £500 and I have found a website called “Laptops Direct” which has cheap laptops, making my choice even harder!
Could anyone give me any tips on which laptop to choose; I would be even more grateful if you could recommend me a laptop within my budget.

Thanks in advance.
Please, I want tips, not websites!
I’m using it mostly for storage and surfing the Internet. And I like using several programs at once.

steve answers:

I recently bought a laptop so I totally sympathise with your researching headaches. If you go to the shops you find that the better brands i.e. Toshiba and Sony will be above and beyond your budget, however you can get great technology from a decent brand within your budget at Dell.

I recently bought a Dell Inspiron 6400 and it was £500 and has great technology and power.

For my money I got:

Intel Duo Core Processor (the best on the market at the mo)

Intel Centrino technology (so its wifi ready),

2048MB 533MHz Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM [2x1024], so its got very large memory so your laptop will run faster and thus powerful enough to run the Vista Home Premium it comes with, with ease.

Hard Drives
120GB (5400rpm) SATA Hard Drive – large hard drive for your music, Operating System, files etc

Check out this link:

http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/inspn_6400?c=uk&l=en&s=dhs&cs=ukdhs1

The only draw back is that it is quite heavy, however like you I had a budget and light weight laptops are really expensive.

Hope this helps.
