I was considerin buying a tablet today, perhaps the Samsung Galaxy, it said it has 3G/Wifi, but how would it use 3G? Would you need a sim, contract or how does it work?
Plus if ylu could recommend a tablet under £200 that’s nice…
For 3G you would need a SIM – it could be contract or pay as you go.
A smartphone is not anywhere in my near future, so my next best option is a tablet. I’m looking for something to kind of mimic a smartphone- i.e. small, easily portable, app capabilities etc but just for wi-fi use. I want to stay under $200. Does anyone have suggestions of great tablets or good brands to look into? Everyone knows the Kindle and iPad and Samsung Note etc, but has anyone used any of the lesser known brands?
If you are looking in that budget. I would actually suggest a known brand for reliabilty otherwise you may end up in buying something which wont last for months.
I suggest you read this comparison between the most popular tablets in your budget:
The Kindle Fire HD IMO is the best option as you get features like:
- Dual WiFi antenna
- Digital Dolby stereo speakers
- Dual core processor
- Front Facing HD camera
- 16/32 Gb storage option with 1Gb RAM
- 1280*800 HD display @216PPI
- HDMI Out
I’ve just started making flash animations and I want to buy a good Pen tablet to make them with. It would need to be under 200$ CDN but still good for animating. If you have any recommendations because you have used it or know a lot about it please answer!
Need some help from people who actually use these for producing graphical art. My daughter has asked for one for Christmas and will be starting a university course next year where she will need it. I would like to buy one for under £200 but have a bit of flexibility on price.

I’m kind of leaning more towards the vaio but I want to see your answers.
Sony would be better. But honestly, macbooks are amazing, i have one and they dont get viruses they are not slow, theyre just great.
I wanted to get the S10 in the deep blue finish and the official website states that it would be available this month, but I don’t see it anywhere. Does anyone know when that color will be made available?
Thanks in advance!
Well, the white and pink one are available at tigerdirect.com. I would say to keep checking there since they get new stuff every week.
I am thinking about getting a Lenovo thinkpad (paticularly U460 or z560). I had never used Lenovo before and am wondering it it is as good as other PC’s. If you have ever had an experience with it- good or bad, I am happy to hear it.
ideapad, not thinkpad..sorry
Lenovo is good no matter what you buy. IBM hardware is solid no matter what you buy…it’s just some machines are more powerful than others. IBM machines typically last much longer than your typical consumer laptop or desktop, so much so that I still see people using older IBM ThinkPad machines still to this day.
So I’ve been sereosly considering getting this laptop I’ve heard its good for just about everything but mainly is it good for minecraft and call of duty because I’m starting a youtube and need a computer that’s good it has 8 gb of RAM and is upgrade able to 16 gb will this be good for gaming
Lenovo’s are very good machines.
Take a look at these rankings:
You need to look at the performance rating of the video card in the laptop and what the games recommend.
Lenovo, Asus, HP, and Samsung are the top 4 laptop brands. I wouldn’t consider any other brands.
Dell makes Alienware and they are not worth the money charged.
Acer makes Gateway. You’d have to pay me to use one of their machines.
Sony hardware has generally been good, but they are notorious for putting huge amounts of crapware/bloatware on machines and gathering information on their consumers without their knowledge or permission.
Toshiba has bottomed the rankings. Personally, I have used them and never had a problem, but that does not appear to be the case any more.
Lenovo laptops are actually IBM Thinkpads who’s rights were bought out by Lenovo. Now these laptops are no joke, they are what we IT specialists refer to as Commercial grade. There are 2 grades, Commercial and Consumer.
Consumer = Low End Affordable (Disposable) units geared to gain sales for stock statistical value.
Commercial = High End, Reputation building machines for fortune 500 companies who contract the PC firms to outfit their company with new models every 5 years. So these machines MUST hold up in order to secure the next term contract.

Hey guys, i was just wondering if any of you know how big the laptop bag is that is included in the gossip girl show bag from the royal melbourne show 2010? Im going to the show tomorrow and the show bag is $25 so i don’t want to purchase the bag and then get it home and my laptop not even fit in it. If anyone knows, please tell me! Thanks
A stylishly, fashionable neoprene laptop bag can accept a laptop or notebook computer with screen sizes 10 – 17-inches in diameter, either to be carried on its own, or slipped inside a laptop case, messenger bag, or backpack so no one will none the wiser that you’re carrying a computer.
In my case, yes I love my nerdy boyfriend . I like them because instead of going and getting drunk and ‘getting’ with girls, being a stereo typical guy, they will be by you, so if your on the laptop they can play the xbox, and have cuddles. In my experience my gamer lover is the best boyfriend I have had so far. I really dislike dudes who party a lot so it is nice to have a boy who I can buy a game and it makes him happy
For girls the red one
For guys the leather one
I like the leather one not just cause I am a guy either
Only you know the size (11 through 17inches), so you are on your own.

i have the pandigital planet
From the market place application. If you dont that certain app look for one similar that has appstore in its name or something
Does the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet run Android apps? And if so, how well?
According to RIM Playbooks are supposed to be running Android Apps before end of Oct (pushed out from the Summer).
I ran the beta (early-stage) version of Android on Playbook and found that it ran well with the apps i tried. I’m looking forward to seeing what the final version looks like. Hopefully RIM doesn’t take too much longer since the delay is hurting RIM and Playbook’s reputation.
I bought this tablet withthe idea that it would replace all my other devices (ipod , laptop etc.) and the only thing that it doesnt replace is my phone, which is fine but Im traveling overseas and it would just be easier to carry round one thing
So are there any apps (free or paid) that will let me send and recieve txts or phone calls
Sipdroid or GrooVeIP (both are VOIP apps) along with the Google Voice app.
Frm android market
I recently got an Asus eee pad transformer tablet to substitute bringing my laptop to school.
For a college student, what apps would ya’ll recommend me getting that would be useful to use in a college setting?
Stuff like Microsoft Office/Excel, or whatever else you all think is cool!
There’s a free App store called Getjar which offers free (and legal) downloads of apps that would usually cost money on the android market. From that site the more useful programs would be; Smartoffice plus (basically a microsoft office style setup) and Wikipedia Pro.
Other than that I’d say to just pick up a basic memory booster/task killer, a file explorer and then any media or entertainment services you’d like.
Without knowing what you’re studying those are the best I can offer. There are a huge amount of apps available though from advanced tablet drawing apps to geology tools.

I like the laptop a lot and my last laptop which was a HP broke after 3 years. I know that these laptops are usually quite expensive but I’ve been saving for a while but I’m not really sure about the laptops themselves because I’ve seen some other questions about this laptop and some are bad and some are good so I was wondering whether or not to get it.
You can read annual surveys:
and see reports
and check reviews of particular models by googling the model.
You can look up CPU power
and graphics performance if interested on that:
You consider a brand at a price point. Just as comparing a $30,000 automobile with a $20,000 one is not a fair comparison, you need to consider a price point or small price range to see what is available.
Sony, at a price point, tends to have good keyboards and LCDs. They used to have very good audio, and reviews might show that. They have a good software package included in most of their laptops. The quality record now is “variable”. There are people that swear by and praise the laptops, and those they swear at the laptops and call them total junk. In general, at a price point, the CPU and graphics processor will be a little lower.
I group laptops in two tiers.
Lenovo Ideapads and Thinkpads, HP Envy and Elitebooks, Samsung and Asus over $450, Toshiba business lines, Dell XPS Latitude and Precision, and the higher priced Sony tend to belong in the upper half.
Anything else takes more research for a model record.
Is it? Or tell me whats a good computer for sims 3. N stuff.
The Sony VAIO N series is a bit of a new page in the playbook for Sony. The VAIO N is a 15.4” widescreen notebook that can actually be called a budget level notebook, in the past we haven’t seen Sony go after cost conscious customers. The VAIO N is squarely targeted at consumers that want a stylish and suitably powerful laptop just for around the home. This review will investigate whether that goal is achieved.
im looking to spend between $1000-1600
I would go with Dell.
At that price range, Sony tends to be way more overpriced for what they put inside of it. All you’re usually getting is a name and a fancy case. Sony sells some laptop with the some setting at $1000, but Dell might offer a similar/better setting for a few hundred dollars cheaper.
On that point, both are reliable names, but Dell has the advantage in terms of selection and price. You have many more options to customize your Dell and select warranty options in comparison to those offered by Sony. Plus, they have a great support website that is better tuned for the PC user than Sony’s.
However, if you really have your eyes set on a Sony, be sure to compare prices and check reviews to make sure you’ll be satisfied with the product and attracted by the price.
There is really no BEST laptop brand as manufacturers all have produced “Gold” and “Lemons” in their time.
Most answers will tell you to buy “THIS” or “THAT” brand because it is the best, just remember that it is the best for THEM not for you.
Most people will tell you of a best “brand” but their actual answer is based on the MODEL they have not the entire brand and you should not judge a company by ONE model as they make hundreds of them.
This being said, here is how to do more precise research to find the best one for YOU:
The first step is to get information on the laptops that you are interested in and, as a second step, to search online at web stores (like Amazon or similar) or at retail shops (BestBuy, staples or similar) for the best deals on the ones you would really like to have based on your search.
This way, you get the best working laptops at the best prices.
As laptop specs change often, it is good to get non-vendor/non-partisan/non-groupie information so you should do some checking on these review/guide sites to help fine tune your search.
At each site, start by checking those two models and then compare them with others (and against each other) by choosing different options using boxes and drop down menus to customize the search and get what you want in your laptop ( there is even a way on some of those sites to look by inputting the price you are willing to pay to minimize the impact on your wallet ).
Your time will not be wasted (after all, you get all this from the comfort of your home) and you should find something to your liking and budget.

P.S.: By the way, I own a Dell but it’s an older model (2002) on the way out soon (to be replaced by a still unknown brand as I will be doing research).

Computer and art wise. I’ve just heard of them…I looked them up and when I saw them they looked really sophisticated and cool. It’d be great if I could have some information on them.
It’s basically another peripheral like a mouse. The tablet itself being square, has points on it that corresponds to points on the screen, when you press the pen to it, it’s like a mouse click, and when you draw, you’re basically pressing and dragging the pen around to click the mouse like you would while drawing with a real pen. You can get tablets big or small, it doesn’t matter. The cursor will still show up on the screen where it is on your tablet.
I own both a tablet and a tablet pc (I’m on it now) Tablet PC’s you can draw directly on the laptop screen. Also, if you invest in any tablet, make sure it’s wacom penabled. They are basically the leading manufacturer of tablets and they have drivers that enable pressure sensitivity and more penlike usage.
Ive been like trying to download my art programs onto my computer and whenever I try to use the installer it will go ‘unable to install please click quit’. It’s only happening with these art programs and also with my tablet installer. My tablet is an intuos4 and it had been working yesterday
Please help! My computer is a Windows 7 btw
Try to find an antivirus to solve the problem i think and im sure its a virus problem or its preferable to reserve your data on a cd or usb and format the computer
Well I bought myself a Wacom tablet to start drawing on the computer with Photoshop.Using the tablet is so different! Any tip/ tutorials, HELP! XD
I would Like to Know which Tablet is better, the Intuos5 –> http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/45066-pth-450/k0-c is more expensive but smaller, and the Fun Pen and Touch –> http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/43733-cth-670/k0-c is cheaper and bigger in size. I just want to know why, as in what features does the Intuos5 have that the Fun pen and touch doesnt .
Fun pen and touch
WACOM Bamboo Pen Graphics Tablet? Is that the best one to use.
Yeah, the bamboo pen tablet is a great tablet for starting out. I’ve had a wacom tablet for years and have never had any problems with it. You can draw with a mouse but the tablet has a lot of advantages like pen pressure to control line thickness or brush opacity. Drawing with a mouse can also really hurt your wrist…

all i need it for is to store and record music with portability and WEB surfing. are netbooks right for me?
YES WHY NOT?
Acer AO532h-2588 10.1-Inch Onyx Blue Netbook – Up to 8 Hours of Battery Life
HP Mini 210-1010NR 10.1-Inch Black Netbook – 4.25 Hours of Battery Life
HP Mini 210-1084NR 10.1-Inch Blue Netbook – 9.75 Hours of Battery Life
Toshiba Mini NB255-N245 10.1-Inch Black Onyx Netbook (8 Hour Battery Life)
Asus Eee PC 1001P-MU17-BK 10.1-Inch Intel Atom Netbook Computer (Black)
ASUS Eee PC 1005HA-EU1X-BK 10.1-Inch Black Netbook – 4 Hour Battery Life
FOR MORE CHOICES
It depends on what features you want and how much you want to spend. Personally, in the 10″ netbook category, I think the Toshiba netbooks are the best in terms of overall quality and features, but they are pricier than most. Also, the Samsung, Acer Aspire One and MSI Wind models are all pretty good. I’d put Dell and HP Minis a notch or two below. A lot of people like the various Asus models, but personally I don’t like their keyboards at all. I bought an Acer early this year (2010) and am pretty happy with it.
You should decide what you want in these categories: operating system (Windows 7 Starter or Windows XP), type and size of hard disk (spinning disk or SSD, and what capacity), matte or glossy screen (the Samsung has a nice matte screen), keyboard style (“island” keys or “regular” keys), & battery power (you can get anything from a 3-4 hour battery to a 9 hour battery). Also, try the keyboard and the touchpad to see how you like the different ones.
I am trying to decide what the best netbook is for me. So far i have the Toshiba NB 205, and the Samsung N120. Are these good choices? If not what is? If they are good choices then which one is better?

oops! just read the second one i made a mistake.
Hmmm.i would get a dell mini 10
Things I need:
1 (most important) FAST!
2 good looking & small
3 runs windows 7 but xp is okay
4 MUST be bought in a shop not online – parents rules ;(
You’re not going to get a netbook that is fast. They are all slow because they are made to be portable and lightweight. You are best going for a 13-14 inch notebook. The cheapest ones are around £450. Check out all the big brands: hp, dell, toshiba etc.
If you’re looking for cheap then check out dell mini: http://www1.euro.dell.com/uk/en/home/Laptops/laptop-inspiron-10/pd.aspx?refid=laptop-inspiron-10&s=dhs&cs=ukdhs1&~ck=mn&ST=dell%20mini%2010&dgc=ST&cid=41141&lid=1069630&acd=124047440120569 It is quite fast for netbooks.
Hey, I’m a colleg student about to start school next week and I am thinking about buying one of those mini laptops. I will be writing alot, school papers and my own book. I need to know if it has a cd/dvd drive to save my work, also could I do itunes stuff on it also? I have an Inspiron 1420, but it was too heavy in my backpack along with my books. If the Mini is not for me, then can someone suggest another small laptop, possibly from Dell (I’m in Austin) that I could buy for no more than $400? Thanks!

will spore or medieval 2 total war run on this if so how well AMD Athlon™ II X2 processor with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics?
Yes spore will run. Hell it runs fine on an intel atom n270 with intel gma 945 graphics.
Get it from ATI;
Choose the one that is compatible with the operating system on your G640.
My config is
Win 7 64 bit home premium
4 GB RAM
500GB Hard Disk
AMD K10 CPU
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250.
Sony Vaio VPCEE3WFX laptop
You can play but u will need to lower graphics. Set visual details to low and resolution to 800X600 or 1024X768
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card
AMD Phenom II (2.6 GHz) processor
Fallout 3 requires about 2.4 GHz processor
Oblivion requires 2.0 GHz processor
On low settings yes because that graphics card is very weak and your cpu maybe weak as well, but it looks pretty decent if it is a ii and has 2.6.

Hi, I got a few questions to ask:
1. If my Netbook is HSPA-Enabled, does that mean I do not require a USB modem?
2. Is my Netbook, a HP Mini 110-1117TU HSPA enabled? (There is a SD-MS/Pro-MMC.XD slot)
3.How do I use it then, if I have a SIM Card for the broadband?
1) If your netbook is HSPA-Enabled, that means you can connect to the mobile data service without a USB Modem.
2) Sorry, but your netbook isn’t 3G (HSPA) enabled,(not from what I can see) and a that slot for SD etc, is for camera memory cards, not sim cards, so it wouldn’t work.
3) If your device is HSPA Enabled, there would be a SIM card slot, usually underneath the battery (you would have to remove the battery to check this),
If you are running windows 7 or 8, having a sim card inside the computer (with the drivers installed) would have ’3G Connection’ appear in the connect to a network list, from what I know.
I have a HP Mini 110-4100 Netbook running Windows 7 Professional (32 bit Service Pack 1). It has a 1.60 GHz Intel Atom processor and 2GB of RAM. It also has Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3600 series with approx. 762 mb memory (according to dxdiag.exe).
The problem is that I’m often pressed for graphics performance and I think my netbook is under performing. Flash games run very choppy and normal/offline games hardly work at all. Now I want to know, is it usual for a netbook of these specs to perform like this with graphics intensive software or might there be a problem.
Thanks in advance.
I say its normal. Every netbook I’ve ever used has ran like complete crap in the graphics department. They are really only build to handle browsing the internet and taking some notes. They wern’t meant to play games, especially not graphicly intense games. The ones I’ve used were choppy even scrolling down web pages. You could try updating your disply drivers, but don’t expect much improvement.

The first thing to do is to re-boot and before the windows logo appears press F8 as that will then give you more options.
If that comes up select safe mode and see if that works.
If it does then something is loading when windows fully loads that is causing a problem.
Raise another question or amend this one if you can get that far.
So I got a HP Mini 110 with 1 gb of ram and it runs the Sims 2 fine, some lagging here and there of course but it can run it the same on best quality no problem. I havent tried installing The Sims 3 until I know for sure its not going to be a waste of money, I’ve seen videos on youtube but they have 2 gb of ram on the netbooks. Does it work on a HP Mini 110 with 1gb of ram? On low quality? Will it give me an error message saying my computer is not compatible? PS: I know my computer isn’t really compatible
It doesn’t run on my 1GB HP Mini

I find the search results but how do i buy it?
At 1st go to the menu then to music………that is………..
I am thinking of buying a good multimedia phone with a decent camera and good video playback options. my budget is till 12k. I have shortlisted the Corby pro. Can it play mp4 or avi files.
If not, then please suggest me a decent phone in that range. Are there any apps that can help?
Thank you in advance.
Yes….but i think u should also check out Samsung “Galaxy 3″….it is better than Corby pro becoz it has Android 2.1.,bigger screen…& b/g/n WiFi ….. Which makes gr8 value for money…as per current news it is priced around 12kilo Rs……& plz like most dont make any confusion between Galaxy3& GalaxyS….
i want to use my samsung corby pro b5310 as a wb cam.please help me how to use it as a wab cam otherwise my friend would kill me….
Webcam is a camera or a video capturing device which is connected to a network through a computer or any such devices.most mobile phones have a video calling or a conferencing camera like Nokia E72,Even Samsung corby pro also,it has a video calling camera in front and can function like a Webcam. If a 3G network is supported,the other person who is connected and talking to you from some other 3G supported phone can also watch your face,gestures,movements during a call through his front camera in the phone and vice versa.More details are found in the URL that I give as a source,Please Refer to it.
i know the phone can support mp4 and 3gp… Is there a player i can download to play files such as avi, rmvb or even mkv on the phone, or do i have to stick to converting them on pc to mp4 then put them on the phone?
You can’t. The Corby Pro doesn’t use Android. So you have to convert the videos.
Hey!! I like to watch anime on my mobile!! But youtube does not have many anime. So is there any alternative to youtube? I have SAMSUNG CORBY PRO and I do not want to download any anime just watch directly on mobile web.
