The concept of the notebook computers or laptop computers and netbooks was to use the same software as the desktop computers but shrink in size to enhance the portability and compatibility of computers. They have made the desktops almost obsolete and have taken their places. Besides serving as a status symbol, they have almost become an unavoidable part of the corporate sector.

The notebook computers have been high on demand since their advent to the market. These are handy, light and can be easily carried around without much fuss. The notebooks have many advantages compared to their older counterparts. They are portable, have less power requirements and have easy access to ports. It can fit into the requirements of every generation of user, be it a professional or a student, with equal ease. While the size of the notebook is miniaturised, the complexity of its built-up is high.

The RAM and the storage devices used may be upgraded without any difficulty but it is quite cumbersome to replace a notebook’s motherboard. The configurations available for notebook computers are limited by their manufacturers unlike the desktops which can have many configurations. A huge number of public and private networks can be easily accessed by the notebooks. Notebooks can be used for many purposes. Starting from the commercial purposes like attending or receiving phone calls, sending and receiving mails, typing out letters and printing them, making presentations with pie and bar charts, transferring of data from one place to another to the fulfilment of entertainment purposes like watching a 2D OR 3D movie, listening to music, editing photographs, arranging music compositions, animations etc.; all is possible if you have a good notebook computer at your disposal.

The netbook computer is even smaller version of the laptop computers. They have a screen size of 10 inches at maximum which makes the less spacious. A netbook computer has a keyboard but the CD/DVD-ROM is cut out to decrease the size and weight. Netbooks are provided with a good battery life to permit their usage even during power outrages. They are much more affordable than their notebook counterparts and rightly so because they are designed with less specifications for more optimized use.

Netbooks are very useful for a company-job holder. The office-goers have huge amount of tasks handed out to them which cannot be done without the help of a computer and they keep travelling most of the time. This is where a netbook helps saves you ample time. In addition to that, the netbooks connect to the web a lot faster due to high customised specifications. Even during presentations, the desktops that were previously in use took up lots of time just to get synchronised with the content being opened. But the speed with which the processors in a netbook run, there is hardly any sort of time lag. The netbooks now come with android operating system. These netbook androids have excellent user interface and pretty useful apps.

Taking A Look At Netbooks: The Gen-Next Computers

They have slowly but surely crept into almost all fields. They are chiefly designed to provide outdoor usage and serviceability. With their high end designs they have become a rage among the geeks of every generation.

The netbooks have outdated the laptops in terms of utility in the professional fields.  There is no specific line of difference between the personal and the professional usage of a laptop. But the netbooks are used for professional use more often than not. It does not mean that they cannot be used for personal entertainment. The size that they come in has enabled us to carry our cyber world with us even in the toilets!! The “minimum input and maximum output” axiom sits pretty nicely on the netbook computers. They are engineered with long battery lives to enable their usage even during power outrages. It also enables their usage in the outdoors or a place where you do not have a wall outlet in the vicinity.

The netbooks are lighter than laptops but not necessarily faster. A processor is what makes a computer faster. It consists of a series of chips attached to each other enhancing performance. If the processor’s size is compromised then so is the speed of the computer. But the Intel Atom processor has made it possible to shrink fit the processer in the limited space available without affecting the performance much. The computer giants have now developed new and improved processors like Intel Atom Dual Core processor and AMD processor which have increased the efficiency of the netbooks. They have a screen size of 10 inches at maximum which makes them occupy less space.

A netbook computer comprises of a keyboard while it lacks the CD/DVD-ROM to decrease the size and weight. They come with good data storage capacity and with office applications. Apart from the office utilities they come with a variety of apps used for entertainment purposes. You can play music, edit photographs, arrange compositions or even watch a movie. Camera netbooks have even replaced the digital cameras, if you are not a professional cameraman. The camera netbooks enable video chats too. The utilities of a netbook are unlimited. It is a perfect device that fits with any generation of people.

The prices of the netbooks have gone downhill since it hit the markets in the early 2007. Now a lot of cheap netbooks are available in the market. With cut throat competition among the giants of the technology field the prices and offers are always on for the consumer’s benefit. There are various brands available if you want to buy cheap netbooks such as Dell, Samsung, Acer, Asus, MSI, LG, Sony, Toshiba etc. The range of computers they provide with the enticing price tags makes it impossible to resist buying. Apart from the offers from dealers, the internet has been hosting a galaxy of sites which dedicate themselves to sell the netbooks at the cheapest prices. They offer free shipping and attractive offers.

Kids Computers:Giving Them What They Want

Computers are used in almost every field. If you thought how a computer would benefit a kid starting his elementary education then probably you have not heard of the laptops specially designed for the kids. Kids generally make a lot of fuss about studying. But these laptops are made keeping in mind the educational requirements of the children of a certain age bracket.

The kids’ computers have an in built LCD screen, a sound panel, a keyboard and a mouse. But these laptops are operated on AA batteries. Learning can be made fun using these laptops. For example, when a child presses a letter from the keyboard the LCD screen shows the letter and pronounces it. It may show how numbers are added, subtracted or divided. It makes it easier to grasp than when a kid reads from the dull notebooks. Science has proved that we learn much faster when we practically do things rather than just learning the theory.

It’s very important for a kid to have a liking for the studies else it would pose problems in future. Earlier charts were used to make kids identify with different objects. The laptops can take over the job of the charts very effectively and make it even more fun. Charts do not speak after all!!! The kid’s computer makes your child learn a lot of things but it won’t be as effective as it is if it would not have provided a gateway to enjoy. Your child may also learn musical notes from these computers. Besides being used for learning purposes the kids’ laptops are designed to build a basic logical interpretation in kids through a series of games.

Children usually love playing make-believe games. Children always want to be like their parents during their childhood days. Thus “possessing” a laptop would satisfy their need to some extent. They generally imitate their parents going to office carrying a laptop. A laptop could be a great gift idea for those children. It’s a great gift idea for a birthday too or may be on some occasion.

Buying the best laptop for your kid requires a lot of research. There are some famous kids’ laptops like the VTech Double Vision laptop, Zipit Wireless Messenger, PeeWee Pivot 2.0, Acer Aspire, Toshiba Sattelite etc available in the market. You may even buy laptops from the numerous sites available on the internet. They offer great deals and even free shipping.

With the computer being the pivot machine of the world, it will be a great way to start learning computers at such young age. Since the kids’ laptops are very simple, they are easy to learn. Introducing them at such young age might make it easy for the kids to learn these machines in future. Make learning a fun activity for your child and just wait for the day he/she makes you proud.
