What Are The Benefits Of Mobile Dual-Core Processors?

When browsing through different notebook computer models, you are guaranteed to encounter the "Intel Core 2 Duo" or the "AMD Turion 64 x2" labels. These labels indicate dual-core processing technology for mobile computing. Multi-core processing is the buzz-word of the day, but what does it mean for you? Mobile Dual-Core Processors Mobile dual-core processors refer to a processor system consisting of two independent processor cores combined in one integrated circuit (IC) or, as industry professionals say, in a single die. Basically, mobile dual-core processors place two central processing unit (CPU) cores in one processor. Dual-core processing was first applied to desktop computing and home console gaming, but it was quickly adapted for mobile computing. As expected, AMD and Intel both have numerous mobile dual-core processing options available. Dual-core processors have a different architecture than twin- or double-core processors. Dual-core processors refer to a processing system where two processors are ...

 


A Review of Various Camera Media Storage Types

Storage media cards for digital cameras come in many different types, sizes and capacities, however, all do the same job - they store images and data in an electronic format. Here's a guide to the most common formats. Compact Flash (CF) While one of the oldest of the storage media cards, the CF card is still the choice of a number of camera manufacturers, including the prosumer and up Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras from Nikon and Canon. CF cards come in two types - Type I and Type II, with the distinguishing factor between the two being the Type II card is physically thicker. When choosing a CF card, be sure to match the card type and capacity recommended for that model camera. While Type I cards do work in a Type II slot, the opposite is not true due to the thickness differences. CF cards of each type come in range of storage capacities from 4 GB to 128 GB. While each type card is physically the same size, not all cameras can use the higher capacity cards. Consult your owner’s manual f...

 


Review: The Mac Mini – Is this Piece of Semi-Tiny Tech Right For You?

The Mac Mini made waves as one of the smallest desktop computers available to buy. And, as with everything Apple do, its size has not impacted its function. What You Need To Know About The Mac Mini The Mac Mini stands out in the world of desktop computing thanks to its size and weight: * 1.4 inches tall, * 7.7 inches wide, * 7.7 inches deep, * 3.0 pounds in weight. These specs mean that the Mini is pretty much portable. As long as you've got a screen, keyboard and mouse where you're going, you can move the Mac Mini itself extremely easily, and it'll take up little space on your desk. The Mac Mini is designed using a unibody aluminum case, and comes with an HDMI video port. The addition of this port to newer models means that it's often used as a home theater system - similar to Apple TV, but more powerful. Due to its small size and the type of components used in the Mac Mini, it's also extremely energy efficient. It takes less power to run than other desktop computers (including other Apple Macs) and is...

 


Best Methods To Backup Files

As much as every computer wants to deny the inevitable, your data is only as secure as your backups. Every hard drive is eventually going to fail (and malicious software frequently targets data files), and you will lose years' worth of files, documents, programs, and all other information that you have kept and stored in your computer unless you have a good backup. Following are some of the best methods of data backup that you can use. Internal Backup, One Disk For a particularly large hard drive, the hard disk can be partitioned so that one partition may be used as a repository of backup data. For this type of backup, you can use automatic backup software, which will do daily backups of data you have specified or a full backup of your active partitions. You can also manually copy your files from your active drive partition to your backup drive partition as long as you do this regularly. This is one of the least advisable forms of backup out there, because the backup partition becomes as useless as the...

 


How Large, How Fast? Choosing The Right Hard Drive Size And RPM

One necessary and extremely important component of computers is the hard drive. The hard drive stores your games, applications, music, pictures, videos, and documents. As such, you should be sure the notebook computer you're thinking of buying has a hard drive that can give you the storage and performance that you need. There are two important considerations when looking at hard drive specifications for your computer notebook: hard drive size and hard drive RPM. Hard Drive Size Hard drive size simply refers to the data storage capacity of a hard disk drive. Desktop computer hard drives offer sizes of up to 500 gigabytes (GB), while notebook computer hard dives offer sizes of up to 160 GB. Notebook computer hard drives are more expensive than desktop computer hard drives with more than twice the capacity of the notebook hard drive. This is due to the engineering difficulties inherent in making high-capacity hard drives for the smaller notebook computers form-factor. A notebook computer's hard drive size in...
