What’s the difference between netbook and other laptops?
of course, the size comes to mind!!
Netbooks have the advantage of mobility and longer battery life, but isn’t really good for anything more than browsing the internet or reading mail.
Laptops on the other hand are quite powerful and can do just about anything that a desktop can
Is it possible to put a graphics card in new laptop?
I am going to buy a laptop, but am not sure if I will need a dedicated graphics card. If I buy one that is running graphics from the processor, is it possible to install a graphics card myself, or is it an expensive and complicated process?
Do modern laptops come with space inside to install another card or are they so thin that you would have difficulty installing anything more inside? I am thinking of buying an Acer like the one seen here http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/acer-v5-571p-15-6-touchscreen-laptop-silver-21286175-pdt.html
Incidentally, if two machines are running i5 processors, but one has 4gb ram and the other has 8gb is there a big difference in performance when running software and browsing the web with a few tabs open at the same time??
The 8GB allows the computer to handle more programs running concurrently. 4GB in reality is very good too but more and more programs are using more. As far as upgrading the video card there is ways to do so but that requires a bit about electronics and soldering. In the long run it’s not really worth even attempting. The simple answer is no. Laptop, with the exception of a rare few, do not have the ability to change video cards.
Difference between a netbook and notebook?
I’m looking to buy a new laptop and wondering what the difference between a netbook and notebook is? Is it a significant difference? I only need one to do basic school work. The netbook I’m looking to get is the HP dm1 Netbook. Is it only called a netbook because of its smaller size meaning there is less on it?
Netbooks are basically mini notebooks. A netbook is small laptop with cheap, low end parts inside. They’re meant for basic tasks like Web browsing and document editing while being inexpensive and having long battery life. The differences in performance are pretty big so you have to decide if the savings are worth it. Other than that you get used to the size.
What is the difference between Intel Pentium SU4100 and Core 2 dou? 10pts?
Whats the difference between an intel pentium su4100 and a core 2 dou? I understand the the core 2 dou is faster, but is the laptop faster when browising? I just want to use the laptop for browsing/youtube/msn/microsoft word. Will it matter what kind of processer I get and will I have to wait an extra few seconds when opening a page?
If all you are doing is browsing and some word processing any modern processor will be sufficient. Memory is where you should probably focus. Windows doesn’t have the best memory management so you can never really have too much (weigh it with cost of course).
The SU4100 uses less power so that’s why they use it in netbooks (which are really just for browsing and light computer use). The Core 2 will be more powerful but will use more power.
A laptop has a disk drive and a netbook doesnt. Netbooks are cute and easy to carry but not if you want to play dvds or CDs.
