Reasons Students Need an Ultrabook

Ultrabooks are extremely thin and light laptop computers. In fact, according to the specifications they are supposed to be less than 0.71 inches thick if their displays measure less than 14 inches. They are also supposed to be able to handle almost all of the same tasks as a standard notebook. Being this thin and light makes them extremely portable but also comes with the minor limitation of not having an onboard optical drive; fortunately, those are not absolutely necessary these days.

The concept of the Ultrabook is less of a technical specification than it is a marketing term coined by Intel to categorize certain computers featuring its technology. This Intel Technology includes the Core i3, i5 and i7 processors. These ultra-thin ultrabooks are primarily Windows computers the dimensions of which could be compared to Apple’s MacBook Air.

With so many other companies vying for the top position, and armed with powerful devices, many felt that Microsoft was coming up short with the Surface tablet.

It wasn't even so much about what the tablet itself contained, but rather the operating system that it was running off of WindowsRT  is the ARM version of the Windows OS, and thought it specifically designed for special devices such as tablets, many felt that the limitations were outdoing the advantages. Overall, the perspective of Windows RT is that it was unnecessary and somewhat inferior to the developments with in the tech industry, even from Microsoft themselves.
With that, the Microsoft Surface tablet featuring the Windows 8 operating system will be released towards the beginning of January of 2013. This newer, fresher version of Surface is already winning over the minds o…

Acer Aspire V3-571

The Acer Aspire V3-571 is one of the best laptops that can be obtained with very limited budget. In the past, we used to assume that buying anything for less than £500 is to put up with a lackluster screen, little performance, and dire input devices. However, the  Acer Aspire V3-571 laptop has clearly shown that price doesn’t always equate with limited aspirations.

In terms of the design, the V3-571 is not a total success, and the color combination of black and grey is not that pleasing. The casing is sleek and slender, which makes it pretty easy to carry around. The weight of this device is 2.6kg. The two-button trackpad has been perfectly combined with the casing, which works effectively. While many laptops suffer from inconsistent and rough trackpads, it is not the case with Acer’s trackpads. It also provides enough room to navigate.
