HP’s new laptops provide easy self-repair

In the last week of the month of February 2011, HP made public some very useful information about is new business laptops. These laptops will now be loaded with features that would make the task of swapping components or fixing the PCs much easier. These business laptops, the new EliteBook and ProBook, will be having Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors. They will be shipped worldwide in the month of March 2011.

The most striking feature of these laptops is the panel they would have at the bottom that can be separated with ease to uncover the fan, hard drive, memory and networking modules. What makes this feature so striking is that in the previous models the screws had to be taken out to remove the panel. Now this task would be as easy as just removing the panel and replacing it with the most updated components to keep your system in tune with time.

According to the officials of HP, if a person wants to upgrade the memory, swap the hard drive, add a wireless WAN card, the new models make the tasks very simple for them. For instance, in the previous models where it was required to remove a keyboard to upgrade memory; it was very tough to remove a fan. In the new models, with the placement of the substitutable components at the bottom, the replacement of a part won’t put others components at risk.

Many experts are worrying about the cutting down of the size of the components in the laptops. They tend to give second priority to the accessibility. But the squeezing of the components will benefit HP in terms of the benefits and the reduced cost that its customers will enjoy with the easy accessibility. What makes the benefit of easy accessibility all the more alluring is the fact that this kind of option was till now was the privilege of the users of desktops.

To add to it, the laptops will also have an advanced version of QuickWeb, a quick-boot supporting environment, which enables the user to boot or start the system in flash of seconds. It will make the task as easy as checking the  e-mail. Moreover the laptops are all set to be more rugged. In the EliteBook we can have the luxury of choosing from the two new models of laptops.

Even though there have been continuous changes in the computer processors models and features however the prime motto has revolved around the processing of instructions. Since the year 1960, processors are the ruling component of the computer without which the computer is just another box. The newer version of processors is dual core, quad core, core 2 duo.I3, I5 and others. With the rapid improvement of processors the need has raised to get adapted to the changes. Even though the installation is not very difficult and full of effort but it does require a lot of careful attempts so that you do not loose on the expensive elements of the motherboard. Every component placed on the motherboard has its significance and the malfunctioning of it may result into the processor not functioning. To install new processors the below steps could add on convenience:

  • Check information on motherboard as ever motherboard is different in configuration and socket.

Every motherboard has different configurations and different sockets. Therefore before even getting a processor, check the socket that is accepted by the motherboard so that your purchase is not a waste.

  • Open the latch of the computer ,power supply and heat sink

Every manufacturer follows different ways of accessing the internal components of the central processing unit. So either you could read through the manuals or could search through on line sites to access the process and open the latch of the processor. Remove the sink or the power supply above the processor to reach the processor. The heat sink must have a fan and one has to remove the fan as well.

  • Insert the processor firmly and confirm the sittings

To insert the processor into the socket, it is very important to check on the pins. Make sure that the processor is firmly placed. The components above the processor must be successively added back in to their slots.

  • Reassemble the computer case

It is essential to have every component properly fit in. As any part not properly and firmly connected would create hassles later.

There are various connections that the processor and motherboard share and thus while handling the cables, be sure that the cables are fitting into the right ports. One has to go through the motherboard and processor manuals so that it does not result into a failure. There is eventually enormous type of processors. However there are few which should be kept away from installation. The most preferred ones are I5, I7.However before even you get an I7 processor read through the manuals as many motherboards do not support I7 .so be confirm before getting into any commitment.

The New 13-inch Laptop – 0-90% in 10 Minutes

There are few things more annoying than having your battery die while you are busy with important business on your laptop and having to wait forever for it to recharge. Added to that, nobody likes to lug around kilos of machine and end up with backache at the end of the day. Manufacturers have realised this and they have subsequently developed a laptop that recharges within ten minutes, and that weighs less than one kilogram. No official announcement has been made as yet, but rumours are everywhere that Toshiba is the company behind this project.

Whenever companies realise that there is a gap in the market they try to come up with something that will fix the problem. The unfortunate thing is that such an endeavour can only go one of two ways. You will either see the product becoming the hottest must have item around, or it will be an outright let-down. It is true that a lot of it has to do with overrating the product through all the hype, but sometimes products just don’t deliver on their promises. Toshiba is known for its great machines, and if it is rumoured that they are coming up with something great then chances are that they are doing just that. Let’s take a closer look at this computer.

The laptop in question here is a notebook that is around 13 inches in size, with an LCD display featuring 16:19 aspect ration. It is powered by Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 CPU. Each chip boasts 4GB memory with a hard drive featuring 500GB capacity, and a solid state drive featuring a 512MB capacity. All this is said to weigh less than one kilogram. This allows for a sleek design, which will prove to be very popular amongst those who truly believe in luxury and style without the compromise on efficiency.

Then the other half of the excitement is the battery. This will be a SCiB, or a super charged ion battery. This kind of battery has been around for the last two years already, and will reportedly charge to more than 90% after just ten minutes. The unfortunate part is that it is not yet known how long the battery will last for in the first place. It would indeed be useless if you had to charge your battery several times a day. If this battery works as claimed, then it will become a tremendous asset to those who are always on the go and who don’t have time to sit in an office or at home to wait until their laptop is finished charging. After all, it is meant to be a laptop not a desktop.

When shopping for laptops there are a number of things people look for, and two of the most important are size and battery life. Of course you want a laptop that is also efficient, but you don’t want it packaged in a bulky case, because then it may as well be a desktop computer.
