    SSD versus DDR3 

     

     

    If you are planning to buy a new laptop, you may wonder which of the following specification is better SSD or DDR3. This author will vote for SSD and some of the decision-making tools are s below.

    First of all, what do SSD and DDR stand for? SSD stands for solid state drive and DDR is the abbreviation of the double data rate. In DDR3 the numeric 3 is the version identity of DDR, it came after DDR2. DDR is a type of dynamic random access memory (DRAM).

    SSD is a faster processor than RAM. Unlike hard disk drives, SSD doesn’t require defragmentation, something many old windows users are quite familiar with. SSD consumes less power and almost nil heat.

    Speed and other flexibilities make SSD of choice for many.

    After using Chromebook it feels like rest of the leading pc selling companies are doing a scam! 

    Chromebook Photo: Alex Washburn / WiredI was a traditional windows user who finally shifted to chromebook, in search for some relief from some of its negative usage experiences like slowness in all respects, poor battery running hours and cost. Although in recent times a wide range of prices of windows pcs are seen but none of them felt satisfactory to me due to its overall protracted working time and less hours of battery provided energy. So I was almost determined not to let the another windows pc to enter my house again and was exploring the option for buying a mac.

    I have seen mac and was quite overwhelmed with its sleek look and long battery life. We have almost 6 pcs at home all running on windows with no gross satisfaction. If all these money could have been saved probably we could have bought 2 mac laptops. So this time I was quite cautious about grabbing my next laptop. However, mac’s price always makes me feel to sob.

    So thought of giving a try to chromebook. After reading its features and seeing its cheap price I thought to bet my pc buying luck for chromebooks too. Obviously I checked various features of google like docs, sheets etc and also had the long battery life back in my head. So finally I invested about 180 dollars and tried my pc luck with chromebooks.

    After about almost a year of its use, I feel rest of the pcs that are sold is doing scam. If google can provide in such low price a superfast pc with excellent battery life, why others can’t do so. Chromebooks don’t need antivirus, google takes care of everything. What more a customer can want for. Its light weight and super fast nature with long battery hours have made it an ideal pc for me.  Hope chromebooks will inspire the pc world for a revolution low price, long battery life and superfast pcs.

      I agree, they are GREAT! I love my Chromebook from Samsung. But you must not mistake, they are not a PC. Windows and Mac offer far more flexibility in running software programs. While ChromeOS and other browsers have the POTENTIAL to eventually run everything online, we aren’t quite there yet.

      Hi Rocky, you are most welcome to Resonance of life!

      I understand that in technical language pc, laptop, chrome os are different nomenclatures and have their own meanings.

      But there are many people like me who are not tech experts and mistakenly use these words interchangeably to mean computer. Common man generally needs simple softwares for browsing, to watch movies or listen music, do basic works like making powerpoint presentations or working on excel or docs.

      I think you are not totally correct about that everything is online in chrome os, you can see movies ofline using viedeo lan in chrome os (link – https://sumantasaha.com/2015/12/19/google-chromebook-pixel-2015-vlc-media-player-finally-available-on-chrome-os/).

      Besides that you can prepare slides or do work on google docs offline.

      Gmail itself can be explored offline.

      Therefore, with respect to people who don’t require much of computer hardware issues for work, daily regular usage is same whichever computer you use. People commonly use some simple tools for this work. I even completed my project work in chrome book. Being a doctor I don’t need much of technical specifications.

      Nevertheless, I appreciate your comment. Thanks for sharing your inputs.

      Please check this out:

      If you can hack a Chromebook remotely, you might get a fat check from Google. The Chrome security team has doubled its top “bug bounty” to $100,000, payable to the first person who compromises a Chromebook or Chromebox machine through the Web.

    Demerits of touch screen laptops 

    Touch screen laptop

    Now a days lot of companies are launching screen touch function enabled laptops. These laptops  truly look nice and seems to be user friendly but I found few negative points, which I am sharing below-
    1. First, is cost. At the current time such touch screen laptops are expensive.
    2. Next,  in the list is screen marks. Sweat from our fingers can keep ugly looking marks on the screen, similar to finger sweep marks on tablets.
    3. According to some users, it consumes more battery than normal LAPTOPs. Therefore, your laptop’s battery life also effected inadvertently. This may also make your laptop a bad choice at places where there is no easy way to recharge.
    4. While cleaning the sweat spots of your finger you may need to add excessive pressure and might risk your laptop’s screen from getting scratch marks. Scratch marks shouldn’t be a problem if you are comfortable, using ugly scratchy laptop screens.

    So what are the solutions:

    1. The laptop producing companies need to think of decreasing the price of their laptops.
    2. They might provide a screen cover/guard (a transparent plastic sheet sort of stuff) which can protect the screen from direct trauma by the users while swiping fingers on the screen or cleaning.
    3. Finally, a laptop with compromised battery life is probably the worst laptop. So some sort of tech upgrade is required, so that the touch screen laptop’s can be used for longer hours.

    Hope this experiences prove useful.
