Laptop Buying Guide

  The Processor: There is an array of processors you can look out for depending upon your needs. If you want a notebook for basic home use like Web surfing, then a netbook with Intel Atom would do. If you want a larger size in display then you can opt for a notebook with Intel Pentium dual Core processor can be picked up on a modest budget. For users who want to run a lot of programs and gaming an Intel Core i3/i5 is the best bet. For people who want the best in performance, then Intel Core i7 is the way to go in terms of processor
Memory: One very important aspect to look out for in a notebook is how much memory (RAM) it has and what the graphic capabilities are. If you are a light user and use few applications and software then you should be comfortable with 2GB of RAM. However, most notebooks now come with a minimum 3GB RAM if you spend over Rs 35,000. Whereas if you use applications like 3D MAX or play graphic hungry games then go for a notebook with 4GB of RAM
Graphics: Graphics have slowly taken up a significant factor in performance of a notebook. With HD content and graphic intensive User interfaces the GPU plays a significant part in a notebook. If you don't need image editing or gaming then we suggest a notebook with Intel Onboard graphics is good enough. Though if you get a dedicated nvidia or ATI graphics card by spending a couple of thousand more, go for the graphics card
Hard Disk: As we step into an era of Blu-Ray disks, our hard disks requirements keep on increasing. The more hard disk we have the better it will be in the long run. Most basic laptops now come with 160GB of drive which is more than enough for general requirment. However, if space is priority then you should look at laptops with at least 320GB of storage space. If performance is what you seek, then we suggest that you go for an SSD based storage as it provides much better performance than a standard drive.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device. Before the Mi…
