Advantages Of Using A Notebook
by Roberto Sedycias
Notebook or laptop computer is a portable computer that can be easily
carried around, and is capable of performing all possible functions of a
computer. Notebook, that usually weighs around 2.2 to about 18 pounds,
comes in various sizes and varied possible features.
Unlike most other electronic goods, learning how to use a notebook is no
big deal. People, who are used to working on computers, find notebooks
almost as convenient to use as they have been using it already. However,
the touchpad or the trackpads (that are used in place of the mouse), or
the pointing sticks might pose slight difficulty for the beginners,
though they can conveniently attach a mouse externally. Nevertheless, the
fact that notebooks bear such great resemblance to computers surely
serves as a great advantage to the users.
These days notebook can also read as well as write CDs and DVDs. They are
also capable of copying and transferring data using Bluetooth devices.
Most of the times, these are built in the notebooks, though one may need
to attach them externally if the features have not been already provided
beforehand. Pen drives, etc, can also be used on notebooks for exchanging
data. Notebooks also allow the benefits of using internet connection
after proper configuration has been done. Microphones and web cameras can
also be used with the notebooks these days.
These days there are various kinds of notebooks that are available in the
market. These can be broadly classified as Ultra-Mobile PCs (or the
UMPCs), the desktop replacement computers and the ultraportables. While
the Ultra-Mobile PCs are laptops that can be easily carried around owing
to their extra small size, the powerful desktop replacement computers are
mostly to be used in a fixed place. They are more bulky and weigh more as
compared to the expensive ultraportables that are specifically meant for
those business travelers who need small as well as light weight notebooks
that can be easily carried around, while traveling around.
Notebooks are especially useful to those who have to work on computers
for long hours, or are heavily depended on computers for their work.
Though notebooks may not be as powerful as computers tend to be for the
same price range, they are capable of performing all the functions that
any computer would perform. There are a number of varieties one can
choose from and the special features, included in each notebook, vary
from one model to another. Much it depends on the price range and the
The main source of power for a notebook is its main battery, and the
external adapter, that is used for charging the battery, from time to
time. This allows the user to work on his or her laptop for hours
together, without having to connect it with any wires, till the battery
exhausts. The time taken for charging the battery varies from one
notebook to another, though usually it does not take more than a few
hours to charge them.
With each passing day, and new developments in technology, notebooks are
becoming more and more popular among the people all over the world.
Though these were initially meant for the business class, who had grown
dependent on their computers, these days notebooks are being used by
almost anybody and everybody.
The falling prices, reducing sizes and growing features are surely making
notebooks one of the most sought after electronic devices of the new
millennium. Hence in today`s world having a notebook has become a
necessity, no one can stay without one. After all who can deny the
luxury/necessity of owing a notebook in today`s world?!
