How Much Are Notebook Laptops?

Depends on the laptop. I would say a fairly cheap one would be between $400-$500 dollars. You could obviously get something like a Gaming Laptop for over $1000. Or you could get a Netbook for around $200-$300. So depends on how much your parents are willing to spend.

1. Is it possible to fix a notebook cover?

2. Laptops for college: Notebook or Netbook?

A netbook is a dumbed down version of a laptop. It's built with cheaper hardware and generally with a much smaller screen. I use a netbook in my college classes because it is so light weight and easy to use. Netbooks are more of a secondary computer tho. I absolutely would not suggest it for your ONLY computer. Just about any computer will do what you want to do. I am a Mac user so obviously I would suggest Mac, but I think you are looking for a cheaper made PC so I do not think a Mac is right for your budget. Personally I like Toshiba laptops. I do not like Compaq or Dell.

3. Wath notebook shoud I buy?

HP is tending to sit at the top of the reviews piles of late. Apple you are just paying for their ads they are now basically Unix systems running PC guts. They are not special or easier to use that been shown in user labs. Dell has been pulling up it's pants. Do not buy Toshiba their customer service very, very, very, very, very poor. They still have a $640.00 PDA of mine from two years ago that never worked from the box. Asus has a very good rep in power user community for Mob's but I have yet to hear about their Laptops. As far as site like second life is concerned your pipe coming in to your machine is more important than than your CPU size. If you are using your system plucked in then try buying your system from a small shop that has been around for a long while and get them to put in a faster hard drive for spindle speed a 7600 RPM verses the basic 5400 or Solid state if you can afford, it. Also upgrade your RAM to 2 Gigs. Vista needs it to even run at half functioning and XP runs well with it. Dump Vista and load XP on until you get Windows 7 in Oct. (and it is a hot OS that runs quite nicely even now, even better than Vista runs now). Make sure they are giving you a Window 7 free upgrade when you buy your system. Windows 7 is 2 months away from release and I have seen offered in ads. Hope this help and have fun.

6. Overusing a notebook/netbook?

You are using it alright, I would not consider it battering but would be considered heavy duty use, it depends on the quality of the netbook how long it will last.I use my G62 24/7 as a desktop, I do shut it down at night, occasionally I go mobile with it but not very often, I have and old Dell for that.I do not see anything wrong with what you are doing.

What Is the Best Laptop / Notebook on the Market?
The laptops which are really nice and fantastic is Alienware it's a gaming laptop, but they are expensive so I would suggest that you should go with Dell Studio XPS or Asus laptops. As these laptops are really good in terms of specifications and prices.1. Netbook or notebook? What to buy?Size. Notebook are generally 13-18" Netbooks are generally 9-12". What to buy? Depends what you will be doing. If you need more power, notebook. If you need more mobility, netbook. If you will be using it for more than 1 hour or so at a time, notebook.2. What should I do with this notebook?use it, only when your aunt visited3. A composition notebook with 3 holes punched?Well you should definately get mechanical pencils, they are so much easier to rely on. (and extra lead) for your locker I would just take pictures & a mirror and hang them up, but some people put up wrapping paper.... oh and locker shelves help a lot (foldable ones) oh wait, I have a decoration thing. .. in a magazine I saw that people decorate their binder (if they have the clear pocket on the front) by decorating a piece of paper w/ things they like and them taping or glueing it in that pocket, but idk if you got those... =D4. What can I do with a notebook?write... peoms songs favorite quotes movies or books u should read sketch top 10 lists ect. ooooh & decorate it pretty5. Should i get a notebook or a tablet?You will probably found the flexibly of a tablet more convenient. You can always buy a model with a keyboard dock or Bluetooth keyboard to give you a full keyboard. Check out my guides below 8th you need more of a guide.6. Notebook Computer - "Plugged in Not Charging"?This could happen for several reasons A- the battery may need replacement or B- The charger has a faulty plug. Sometimes when removing the plug we tend to dislodge the inner wiring ( which is common with extended use in older chargers). Either way you will need to take it to a computer store and have a technician test it for you. In the long run you could save yourself some money. I would not try to fix the cord at home as you put alot of money in your personal computer, you will want to get what replacements are intended for your specific computer. I am sure you probably already know this, sometimes its good getting a little reminder. Happy Computing!7. is this a good notebook?its good for doing homework and stuff but if your gonna play games on it get better graphics card and more ram8. Notebook for SysadminFor me, the perfect SA notebook is something that you can carry everywhere and always be to hand. That means light and small. Notebooks are too big and seem often designed for people to use on tables. Netbooks are just too small. Subnote 12" is perfect.I have an HP 2510p presently, which they have just since released a new 2530p model of. IBM also make some nice subnotes. But the trackpad is a real clincher for me.I think that now the only solution to serial is USB. If you can find a really small dongle based on a reliable chipset then the hassle is greatly reduced. I've had good experience with Prolific 2303 chipsets. Drivers are in the Linux kernel tree and easily available for Windows. They list some manufacturers on this page and this dongle is also meant to be perfectly good.9. What should you make sure to bring with you when going away to college for the first time?be sure you to bring your pens and notebook and paper... also be sure to bring your confidence but not too much of it and also your friendly smile10. Which notebook is good for a college student?I have an Ibook G4 and it has been the best laptop I have ever owned. I would take the Macbook. If you are doing special photo editing, music editing and other special things I would go with the Macbook Pro11. Should I get a notebook with Vista on it?If you can wait a year, then you do not really need it. So the answer is "wait".
What Is the Best Laptop/notebook for a Working Student?
What Is the Best Laptop/notebook for a Working Student?
I would say a MacBook because they are my fave and you can get an education discount too. If you are more interested in pc then I would say some sort of tablet1. What is the best Laptop/Notebook for me?Get a Toshiba. Mu sister has one and it has bluetooth. It has a damn big screen, bigger than my MacBook2. Ideas for a notebook? Unique?!?My notebook is pretty much filled with lists of musicians I like, films, books, recipes, television shows, songs; just all the little things I like that make me me... I like to fill it with random bits and pieces; quotes (from friends, myself, books, films etc.), doodles, thoughts; anything and everything really. I like to write down positive things, or things I want to do in the future--I guess that's like a bucket list--this summer my friends and I made a list of 30 things we would do this summer, I think we have about 5 left, so that might be a fun idea for another time? I am going trick-or-treatin' with my friends this year so I will be doodling costumes :) plus for Christmas (I knit) I will be drawing and planning out my friend's and family's presents. I also doodle little characters and write back stories for them or bios, sometimes I will doodle a building or vehicle and I like to write lil short stories about them too... I dunno I find it fun to bring my crappy drawings to life through words... I do not know if this would be your kind of thing but I have a jar which I put slips of paper into, and I write down good things that have happened on the slips (along with the date), so that at the end of the year I can look back at all the good things that happened. Plus if you are having a bad day it's nice to read through some of them.. I hope something here is useful for you!3. Toshiba notebook hard drive crashed?dear friend all u need is to buy a new hard drive with size that satisfy you u go to the store ask him for a hard disk that your system support and u dont have to buy a new windows if u had your system restore disk add to that u had youe own recovery dvd coming with your toshiba "best regards"4. is a notebook better than a desktop?A desktop is better than a notebook in EVERY WAY except that a notebook is portable. Desktops are easier to upgrade and repair, cheaper, run cooler, and so forth. Desktops can be made faster and with better graphics than any notebook. A desktop tower can be left on the floor, leaving nothing but keyboard, monitor, and mouse on the desktop. There is no saving in space by using a notebook. A desktop will likely run cooler and last longer than an equivalent notebook. When it breaks it will be easier to fix. A desktop keyboard is easily and cheaply fixed - not so with a notebook. Notebook memory is usually more expensive than desktop memory. Anybody has to be a fool to purchase a notebook UNLESS they need PORTABILITY. I hope that answers your question! :).5. Is this a good notebook?Everything is good except vista and the hard disk, good luck with that. I would go with Ubuntu Linux instead, it's more stable, has bullet proof security, and oh yeah, it FREE!!!!!!!6. Dell insprion Notebook or Mac notebook?I personally use a Mac. However, for an 11 year old, i would go with the dell. A Mac is good for video/audio editing and stuff like that, but I do not think an 11 yr old would be able to unleash the cababilities of it. If she is confortable with a dell, you would probably be better off sticking with the windows platform.7. Is "The Notebook" like "The Great Gatsby"?The Great Gatsby differs quite a lot from The Notebook. Like, the main conflict in The Great Gatsby is a man who is trying to win back a lover of his from a huge jerk who cheats on her, whereas The Notebook is more along the lines of love that lasts, despite the turmoil the couple went through at times. In The Great Gatsby, Daisy, the main girl, promised she would wait for Jay Gatsby, the man who once dated Daisy before Gatsby left for war, but Daisy met/became engaged to Tom Buchanan, a jerk who cheats on Daisy, and actually winds up having Gatsby killed near the end of the book. Overall, The Notebook is a very romantic tale, whereas The Great Gatsby is a story that shows how corrupt and rotten the wealthy class can be, while The Notebook shows that true love lasts forever, despite anything, like Alzheimer's disease that may get in the way. Thus, they are kinda opposite in a way.
Is a Mini Pc Notebook Worth It?
Is a Mini Pc Notebook Worth It?
It really depends what you will be using it for. If you are using it only to do homework and chat with friends and possibly visit a couple websites or what not, a mini would be great. If you are really into music, movies, photography, or games and you download or upload a lot, you may want to make sure you have a larger amount of memory space which usually means getting away from the mini's and does get a bit more expensive. You CAN get a mini with more available memory space- just remember the more memory space, the more expensive, no matter the literal size of the computer. (I am personally not a fan of mini's though because they do not have a cd drive- you have to buy one separately and hook to it anytime you needed a cd, which is annoying.) I would recommend looking at the dell website and look at building a computer putting in what you would use it for- JUST LOOKING at first and see what they recommend and the price. You could also go into Best Buy and talk to one of their computer specialist telling them what you would use it for and they could give you a recommendation on what computer you should get- you can even tell them you prefer the smaller size. Being actual people dealing directly with customers they can also give you a lot of pros and cons that they've heard about all of the products. If you are really looking for a laptop but do not have a ton of money to spend, you should look into the possibility of buying a refurbished one. **You have no idea how many people are total techies (my husband falls into this category) that HAVE to have the latest and the greatest and they TOTALLY take care of the electronics that they have, they only sell it off because it's not the latest model (well, my hubby gives me the one he's been using and then gets sells off mine)** Good luck finding the computer of your dreams that fits into your budget!!!1. Is there a mini freezer or a mini fridge with a big freezer?Most mini fridges only have small freezers2. hiding a mini fridge. help?there is a silent electric cooler. i bought one at walmart a few years ago. its like the type you put ice in and take to the beach but its hard plastic. there's no noise or condensation or vents. no freezer compartment. and lots lighter to carry3. coach mini skinnies, what are they really?Go to the outlet. They sell great Coach stuff for lil bit cheaper. My mommy got my a great wristlet there for 50 bucks and a wallet [dont remember how much that was]4. The Best Mini Excavator for 2021As contractors who take their jobs seriously, it makes sense that you want the best equipment out there. Every year as new technologies come out and brands introduce new versions of machines, it's a question people ask a lot. Mini excavators, in particular, have been becoming a more popular machine. Their small body and versatile applications make them valuable machines. So, what is the best mini excavator to rent for your project? The Best Mini Ex - Or Any Other Machine Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question. The "best" type of any machine simply does not exist. The best machine for one job may not be the best for another. The actual machine itself is going to be similar across different makes. But the additional parts - GPS, telematics, available attachments, etc - will change. Some contractors are more comfortable with one brand versus another which means that the best machine for them is unique. The same way you can not really have a "best book" or "best movie" of the year, there is no "best mini excavator" for the year. If the Oscars can not make everyone happy, neither can a single mini ex. However, that does not mean that there is not a perfect mini excavator for you or your job. What is the job you need to do? The first step is to really think about the job and what you need the machine to do. In many smaller projects, jobs by sidewalks, on household lawns and private properties, or for doing trench or small-scale digging, a mini ex is a great machine. However, the mini ex may not be a good fit for your job at all. A backhoe may be a good fit if you want to focus on moving more so than digging. Maybe a larger excavator is a better fit. Maybe you are only looking at mini excavators because of the attachments and there's an independent machine that can do that independently. Do you need your mini excavator to have bells and whistles? For some projects, GPS systems, additional attachments and telematics are must-haves. Depending on the season, you may need air conditioning in the cab. With equipment technology advancing all the time, electric-powered mini excavators are starting to be seen in the market. While many of these additions are available with many brands, some brands may be better suited for what you need. What Size of Mini Excavator Do You Need? Now that you've settled that a mini excavator is the best machine for the job, it's time to think about size. The best mini excavator size completely depends on the job. Many homeowners will rent 1 or 2-ton mini excavators for small yard projects. However, mini excavators can be rented for up to 9 tons. That's a wide range of small-sized excavators for any number of projects. At the same time, there are many different attachments that you can rent along with an excavator to really diversify the use of your machine. Auger attachments, trenching buckets, thumbs and hammers all make a mini ex capable of exactly what you need. How To Choose a Brand of Mini Excavator Contractors often go with whatever brand they know best and are most comfortable with. John Deere is a way of life, after all, not just a brand name. Skid steers are a great example of this: many people only like to use bobcat skid steers. It's the name synonymous with the machine and many people trust that even though skid steers are also made by a number of other brands. The biggest difference between brands is the controls. Operators get comfortable with using a set of controls and switching for a short-term rental could impact productivity. Not all machines have different controls but it does happen. The personal preference of a brand is one of the biggest reasons why there is no "best" machine or mini excavator. It's as personal as what boot style you like or what brand of tool you trust. Renting the Best Mini Excavator For You While it would be great to announce that a single mini excavator is the best one out there and the only mini ex you would ever need again. . . it's just not realistic. Like many other things in life, it's better to ask the question, "What is the best mini excavator for me and my job?" Hopefully these questions and points help to guide you to the best mini ex for you and to help you pivot your mindset when looking for equipment for your next project.
KUU LeBook 12.6 2-in-1 Laptop Convertible Review [from notebookcheck.net]
KUU LeBook 12.6 2-in-1 Laptop Convertible Review [from notebookcheck.net]
Is the KUU cool? There are a lot of Windows 10 tablets to choose from beyond the Microsoft ones. The KUU LeBook is perhaps the closest in terms of visual design and performance while costing potentially hundreds of dollars less, but it misses the mark in a few areas. The KUU LeBook 12.6 is a Windows 10 detachable in the same vein as the Surface Pro series. Its design and features are clearly inspired by the successful Microsoft tablets with certain changes and cut corners in order to keep prices significantly lower. One of these changes is the use of an older Intel 8th gen Core U-series CPU instead of the latest 11th gen versions currently found on most PCs in the market today. This review will explore all the other differences users can expect if purchasing the cheaper LeBook instead of a more traditional Surface Pro. Competitors to the LeBook include other Windows 10 tablets or detachable like the Microsoft Surface, Lenovo ThinkPad X12, or Dell Latitude 12 7210 2-in-1 all of which retail for higher prices. However, the book is unique with its slightly larger 3:2 12.6-inch display instead of the usual 12.3-inch or 12.5-inch screens. The manufacturer has yet to finalize the price of the book as it is not yet widely available at the time of publishing. Kuu LeBook 12.6 Core i7-8550U Processor Intel Core i7-8550U 4 x 1.8 - 4 GHz, 18 W PL2 / Short Burst, 15 W PL1 / Sustained, Kaby Lake Refresh Graphics adapter Intel UHD Graphics 620, Core: 1067 MHz, Memory: 1150 MHz, 27.20.100.8682 Memory 8192 MB 10-10-10-28, Dual-Channel Display 12.60 inch 3:2, 2160 x 1440 pixel 206 PPI, Capacitive, native pen support, BOE TV126WTM-NU0, IPS, glossy: yes, detachable screen, 60 Hz Mainboard Intel Kaby Lake-U HDCP 2.2 Premium PCH Storage KUU-512GB Weight 859 g ( = 30.3 oz / 1.89 pounds), Power Supply: 211 g ( = 7.44 oz / 0.47 pounds) Note: The manufacturer may use components from different suppliers including display panels, drives, or memory sticks with similar specifications.   potential competitors in comparison Case The metal chassis is a highlight of the book as it feels close to the quality of a pricier Surface Pro. The metal stand on the back could have been more rigid or thicker, however, as it warps somewhat easily. The base consists of Alcantara and a faux leather bottom texture. Though it looks good with a high-quality feel, It's too flexible and susceptible to twisting which negatively impacts the typing experience. A firmer and more solid keyboard deck would have been better. Size and weight are ever-so-slightly larger and heavier than the Surface Pro 7 which correlates with the slightly larger 12.6-inch display. The screen-to-body ratio is higher on the KUU regardless. Using the keyboard base adds about 308 g to the weight of the tablet.   Connectivity The two USB-C ports each support charging and external monitors. There are unfortunately no integrated USB-A ports unlike on the Surface Pro series. Top: Power button Right: Volume rocker, 3.5 mm headset Bottom: POGO pins for keyboard base   Left: 2x USB-C w/ Power Delivery and DisplayPort Communication There is no Wi-Fi 6 support likely to save on costs. The integrated 1x1 Intel 3168 offers real-world transfer rates of only around 350 Mbps to be over 4x slower than pricier laptops with the Intel AX200 or AX201.   Webcam ColorChecker Kuu LeBook 12.6 Core i7-8550U: 10.52 ∆E min: 1.68 - max: 18.53 ∆E   Kuu LeBook 12.6 Core i7-8550U Accessories and Warranty The retail box includes the AC adapter, detachable keyboard dock, and an active pen stylus. The standard one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies. Input Devices Keyboard The typing experience is worse than on the Surface Pro series mostly because of one drawback: the base doesn't sit completely flat on the table. As a result, the back of the keyboard base will always bounce up and down when typing which impacts the feedback of the keyboard keys. Typing feels spongy since you're pushing down on the whole base with each keypress. There are two LED indicators on the left palm rest of the keyboard base. These lights are relatively bright and we wish they could have been a bit smaller to be less visually obtrusive. Touchpad The clickpad is larger than the clickpad on the Surface Pro 7 (10.8 x 6.4 cm vs. 10.2 x 5.3 cm). Its advantages end there, however, as almost everything else about the LeBook clickpad is worse. Its surface is sticky when gliding at slower speeds which leads to a jumpy cursor. Multi-touch inputs are also finicky, unresponsive, and oftentimes inaccurate. When trying to drag and drop, for example, the system would frequently register our actions as zooming in or out instead. The integrated clickpad buttons, while loud and clicky, take a lot of force to actually press. And finally, the clickpad is not Precision-enabled meaning any Microsoft Precision features are out of the question. Display The 12.6-inch BOE TV126WTM-NU0 IPS panel is the first to appear on our database. Certain attributes like response times and color coverage are slightly worse than on the Surface Pro which thankfully won't matter very much when web browsing. Other attributes like contrast ratio and maximum brightness are meager and representative of a budget panel. Color space is wide at approximately 89 percent of sRGB compared to >95 percent on pricier Ultrabooks and tablets. Color reproduction is roughly comparable to the display on the Surface Laptop Go. The display is decently calibrated out of the box despite the cheap starting price. Color temperature is slightly too cool, but a calibration addresses this without any issues. The final average grayscale and ColorChecker deltaE values of just 1.5 and 1.27, respectively, are better than we had initially expected. Shades of magenta may be more inaccurate than other colors, however. Display Response Times Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times. Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether. Outdoor visibility is poorer than on most other tablets since the display is dimmer. Expect a lot of unavoidable glare when under most outdoor conditions. Performance Processor CPU performance is roughly 30 percent and 45 percent slower than the latest Core i7-1165G7 in single-threaded and multi-threaded workloads, respectively. Though significant, the difference is not very noticeable for simpler tasks like web browsing or word processing. It's certainly still leagued better than a Celeron or Atom system where applications take much longer to launch or navigate through. System Performance PCMark results are where we expect them to be relative to other models with the same Core i7-8550U CPU. We appreciate the fact there the system comes with no manufacturer bloatware for a clean Windows 10 experience. DPC Latency LatencyMon reveals no major latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is also without any issues despite the outdated Intel CPU. Storage Devices Internal storage is spacious at 512 GB with transfer rates similar to most SATA III SSDs. The lack of an SD card reader means is less of an issue when the internal drive is as large as most laptop drives. GPU Performance The UHD Graphics 620 is poor by today's standards where Radeon RX Vega and Iris Xe models reign supreme. This won't be an issue for 4K streaming or non-gamers, but even the slightest bit of editing or gaming will benefit significantly from upgrading to the Surface tablet or any other device with AMD Zen or 11th Intel Tiger Lake CPUs. Emissions System Noise The internal fan is noisy and it pulsates frequently. Even simple actions like web browsing will initiate the fan whereas it would remain silent on most other tablets and ULV laptops. Expect the fan to pulse in the 36 to 41 dB(A) range under most conditions or up to 45 dB(A) when running higher loads like games. Temperature Surface temperatures when idling on the desktop are warmer than expected at up to 41 C and 36 C on the front and back hot spots, respectively. Running higher loads will kickstart the internal fan leading to a slightly cooler hot spot of 37 C on the front while the back will be slightly warmer at 40 C. The warmth is noticeable when handling the tablet, but it's thankfully cooler around the edges and corners to not be distracting. Stress Test System idle when running Prime95, the CPU would boost to 2.4 GHz for about 30 seconds until hitting a core temperature of 77 C. Thereafter, clock rates would fall and cycle between 1 GHz and 1.7 GHz in order to maintain a cooler temperature in the 60 C to 65 C range. Turbo Boost sustainability is therefore limited on the LeBook since it is a tablet, after all. Running on battery power will not limit performance. A 3DMark 11 run on batteries would return Physics and Graphics scores of 6186 and 1689 points, respectively, compared to 5384 and 1743 points when on mains. Speakers Energy Management Power Consumption The system consumes slightly less power than on the Surface Pro 7 Plus when running comparable applications. However, the savings of just a few watts pale in comparison to the tremendous gains in performance that the Microsoft tablet is able to offer over the LeBook. We're able to measure a temporary maximum draw of 38.9 W from the small (~6.3 x 6.3 x 3 cm) 45 W AC adapter when running Prime95 and FurMark simultaneously before thermal limitations kick in. The aforementioned Surface Pro 7 Plus can draw significantly more at up to 62.5 W due to the higher Turbo Boost potential of its newer processor. Battery Life Battery capacity is in between that of the Surface Pro 7 and Latitude 12 7210 2-in-1. WLAN runtime, however, is nonetheless roughly two hours shorter on the KUU model for a total of almost 6.5 hours. Charging from empty to full capacity takes about two full hours. Verdict — One of the Better Windows Tablets on a Budget The strengths of the KUU LeBook are visual and tangible. It's a solidly built tablet that could pass as a pricier flagship model like the Surface Pro or HP ElitePad. We also have to applaud the manufacturer for sticking to a Core U-series CPU instead of the much weaker Atom, Celeron, or Pentium part a la the Surface Go or many other cheaper Windows tablets in the budget range. The roomy 12.6-inch touchscreen and relatively narrow bezels help make the LeBook even more attractive. It looks and feels like a high-quality tablet with a respectable performance from its Core U-series CPU. However, the bouncy keyboard base and high-pitched fan noise is hard to ignore. The benefits of the KUU are mostly skin deep as the pulsing high-pitched fan, dimmer display, shorter battery, and spongy keyboard keys all hinder the user experience despite how sleek and smooth the chassis may be. Though the LeBook can't compare to the Surface Pro in these specific areas, it is still generally better than other budget Windows tablets including the Asus Transformer Book or Surface Go especially in terms of display size and performance. Price and availability The LeBook 12.6 is not yet widely available and with no solid launch date at the time of publishing.

Color space is wide at approximately 89 percent of sRGB compared to >95 percent on pricier Ultrabooks and tablets. Color reproduction is roughly comparable to the display on the Surface Laptop Go. The display is decently calibrated out of the box despite the cheap starting price. Color temperature is slightly too cool, but a calibration addresses this without any issues.

Shades of magenta may be more inaccurate than other colors, however. Display Response Times Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times. Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye.

GPU Performance The UHD Graphics 620 is poor by today's standards where Radeon RX Vega and Iris Xe models reign supreme.

Expect the fan to pulse in the 36 to 41 dB(A) range under most conditions or up to 45 dB(A) when running higher loads like games. Temperature Surface temperatures when idling on the desktop are warmer than expected at up to 41 C and 36 C on the front and back hot spots, respectively. Running higher loads will kickstart the internal fan leading to a slightly cooler hot spot of 37 C on the front while the back will be slightly warmer at 40 C. The warmth is noticeable when handling the tablet, but it's thankfully cooler around the edges and corners to not be distracting. Stress Test System idle when running Prime95, the CPU would boost to 2.4 GHz for about 30 seconds until hitting a core temperature of 77 C. Thereafter, clock rates would fall and cycle between 1 GHz and 1.7 GHz in order to maintain a cooler temperature in the 60 C to 65 C range. Turbo Boost sustainability is therefore limited on the LeBook since it is a tablet, after all. Running on battery power will not limit performance.

Speakers Energy Management Power Consumption The system consumes slightly less power than on the Surface Pro 7 Plus when running comparable applications. However, the savings of just a few watts pale in comparison to the tremendous gains in performance that the Microsoft tablet is able to offer over the LeBook. We're able to measure a temporary maximum draw of 38.9 W from the small (~6.3 x 6.3 x 3 cm) 45 W AC adapter when running Prime95 and FurMark simultaneously before thermal limitations kick in. The aforementioned Surface Pro 7 Plus can draw significantly more at up to 62.5 W due to the higher Turbo Boost potential of its newer processor. Battery Life Battery capacity is in between that of the Surface Pro 7 and Latitude 12 7210 2-in-1. WLAN runtime, however, is nonetheless roughly two hours shorter on the KUU model for a total of almost 6.5 hours. Charging from empty to full capacity takes about two full hours. Verdict — One of the Better Windows Tablets on a Budget The strengths of the KUU LeBook are visual and tangible. It's a solidly built tablet that could pass as a pricier flagship model like the Surface Pro or HP ElitePad. We also have to applaud the manufacturer for sticking to a Core U-series CPU instead of the much weaker Atom, Celeron, or Pentium part a la the Surface Go or many other cheaper Windows tablets in the budget range. The roomy 12.6-inch touchscreen and relatively narrow bezels help make the LeBook even more attractive. It looks and feels like a high-quality tablet with a respectable performance from its Core U-series CPU. However, the bouncy keyboard base and high-pitched fan noise is hard to ignore. The benefits of the KUU are mostly skin deep as the pulsing high-pitched fan, dimmer display, shorter battery, and spongy keyboard keys all hinder the user experience despite how sleek and smooth the chassis may be. Though the LeBook can't compare to the Surface Pro in these specific areas, it is still generally better than other budget Windows tablets including the Asus Transformer Book or Surface Go especially in terms of display size and performance. Price and availability The LeBook 12.6 is not yet widely available and with no solid launch date at the time of publishing.

KUU LeBook 12.6 2-in-1 Laptop Convertible Review [from notebookcheck.net]
Is the KUU cool? There are a lot of Windows 10 tablets to choose from beyond the Microsoft ones. The KUU LeBook is perhaps the closest in terms of visual design and performance while costing potentially hundreds of dollars less, but it misses the mark in a few areas. The KUU LeBook 12.6 is a Windows 10 detachable in the same vein as the Surface Pro series. Its design and features are clearly inspired by the successful Microsoft tablets with certain changes and cut corners in order to keep prices significantly lower. One of these changes is the use of an older Intel 8th gen Core U-series CPU instead of the latest 11th gen versions currently found on most PCs in the market today. This review will explore all the other differences users can expect if purchasing the cheaper LeBook instead of a more traditional Surface Pro.

Verdict — One of the Better Windows Tablets on a Budget The strengths of the KUU LeBook are visual and tangible. It's a solidly built tablet that could pass as a pricier flagship model like the Surface Pro or HP ElitePad.

The roomy 12.6-inch touchscreen and relatively narrow bezels help make the LeBook even more attractive. It looks and feels like a high-quality tablet with a respectable performance from its Core U-series CPU. However, the bouncy keyboard base and high-pitched fan noise is hard to ignore. The benefits of the KUU are mostly skin deep as the pulsing high-pitched fan, dimmer display, shorter battery, and spongy keyboard keys all hinder the user experience despite how sleek and smooth the chassis may be. Though the LeBook can't compare to the Surface Pro in these specific areas, it is still generally better than other budget Windows tablets including the Asus Transformer Book or Surface Go especially in terms of display size and performance.

KUU LeBook 12.6 2-in-1 Laptop Convertible Review [from notebookcheck.net]
KUU LeBook 12.6 2-in-1 Laptop Convertible Review [from notebookcheck.net]
Is the KUU cool? There are a lot of Windows 10 tablets to choose from beyond the Microsoft ones. The KUU LeBook is perhaps the closest in terms of visual design and performance while costing potentially hundreds of dollars less, but it misses the mark in a few areas. The KUU LeBook 12.6 is a Windows 10 detachable in the same vein as the Surface Pro series. Its design and features are clearly inspired by the successful Microsoft tablets with certain changes and cut corners in order to keep prices significantly lower. One of these changes is the use of an older Intel 8th gen Core U-series CPU instead of the latest 11th gen versions currently found on most PCs in the market today. This review will explore all the other differences users can expect if purchasing the cheaper LeBook instead of a more traditional Surface Pro. Competitors to the LeBook include other Windows 10 tablets or detachable like the Microsoft Surface, Lenovo ThinkPad X12, or Dell Latitude 12 7210 2-in-1 all of which retail for higher prices. However, the book is unique with its slightly larger 3:2 12.6-inch display instead of the usual 12.3-inch or 12.5-inch screens. The manufacturer has yet to finalize the price of the book as it is not yet widely available at the time of publishing. Kuu LeBook 12.6 Core i7-8550U Processor Intel Core i7-8550U 4 x 1.8 - 4 GHz, 18 W PL2 / Short Burst, 15 W PL1 / Sustained, Kaby Lake Refresh Graphics adapter Intel UHD Graphics 620, Core: 1067 MHz, Memory: 1150 MHz, 27.20.100.8682 Memory 8192 MB 10-10-10-28, Dual-Channel Display 12.60 inch 3:2, 2160 x 1440 pixel 206 PPI, Capacitive, native pen support, BOE TV126WTM-NU0, IPS, glossy: yes, detachable screen, 60 Hz Mainboard Intel Kaby Lake-U HDCP 2.2 Premium PCH Storage KUU-512GB Weight 859 g ( = 30.3 oz / 1.89 pounds), Power Supply: 211 g ( = 7.44 oz / 0.47 pounds) Note: The manufacturer may use components from different suppliers including display panels, drives, or memory sticks with similar specifications.   potential competitors in comparison Case The metal chassis is a highlight of the book as it feels close to the quality of a pricier Surface Pro. The metal stand on the back could have been more rigid or thicker, however, as it warps somewhat easily. The base consists of Alcantara and a faux leather bottom texture. Though it looks good with a high-quality feel, It's too flexible and susceptible to twisting which negatively impacts the typing experience. A firmer and more solid keyboard deck would have been better. Size and weight are ever-so-slightly larger and heavier than the Surface Pro 7 which correlates with the slightly larger 12.6-inch display. The screen-to-body ratio is higher on the KUU regardless. Using the keyboard base adds about 308 g to the weight of the tablet.   Connectivity The two USB-C ports each support charging and external monitors. There are unfortunately no integrated USB-A ports unlike on the Surface Pro series. Top: Power button Right: Volume rocker, 3.5 mm headset Bottom: POGO pins for keyboard base   Left: 2x USB-C w/ Power Delivery and DisplayPort Communication There is no Wi-Fi 6 support likely to save on costs. The integrated 1x1 Intel 3168 offers real-world transfer rates of only around 350 Mbps to be over 4x slower than pricier laptops with the Intel AX200 or AX201.   Webcam ColorChecker Kuu LeBook 12.6 Core i7-8550U: 10.52 ∆E min: 1.68 - max: 18.53 ∆E   Kuu LeBook 12.6 Core i7-8550U Accessories and Warranty The retail box includes the AC adapter, detachable keyboard dock, and an active pen stylus. The standard one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies. Input Devices Keyboard The typing experience is worse than on the Surface Pro series mostly because of one drawback: the base doesn't sit completely flat on the table. As a result, the back of the keyboard base will always bounce up and down when typing which impacts the feedback of the keyboard keys. Typing feels spongy since you're pushing down on the whole base with each keypress. There are two LED indicators on the left palm rest of the keyboard base. These lights are relatively bright and we wish they could have been a bit smaller to be less visually obtrusive. Touchpad The clickpad is larger than the clickpad on the Surface Pro 7 (10.8 x 6.4 cm vs. 10.2 x 5.3 cm). Its advantages end there, however, as almost everything else about the LeBook clickpad is worse. Its surface is sticky when gliding at slower speeds which leads to a jumpy cursor. Multi-touch inputs are also finicky, unresponsive, and oftentimes inaccurate. When trying to drag and drop, for example, the system would frequently register our actions as zooming in or out instead. The integrated clickpad buttons, while loud and clicky, take a lot of force to actually press. And finally, the clickpad is not Precision-enabled meaning any Microsoft Precision features are out of the question. Display The 12.6-inch BOE TV126WTM-NU0 IPS panel is the first to appear on our database. Certain attributes like response times and color coverage are slightly worse than on the Surface Pro which thankfully won't matter very much when web browsing. Other attributes like contrast ratio and maximum brightness are meager and representative of a budget panel. Color space is wide at approximately 89 percent of sRGB compared to >95 percent on pricier Ultrabooks and tablets. Color reproduction is roughly comparable to the display on the Surface Laptop Go. The display is decently calibrated out of the box despite the cheap starting price. Color temperature is slightly too cool, but a calibration addresses this without any issues. The final average grayscale and ColorChecker deltaE values of just 1.5 and 1.27, respectively, are better than we had initially expected. Shades of magenta may be more inaccurate than other colors, however. Display Response Times Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times. Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation) To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM). This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether. Outdoor visibility is poorer than on most other tablets since the display is dimmer. Expect a lot of unavoidable glare when under most outdoor conditions. Performance Processor CPU performance is roughly 30 percent and 45 percent slower than the latest Core i7-1165G7 in single-threaded and multi-threaded workloads, respectively. Though significant, the difference is not very noticeable for simpler tasks like web browsing or word processing. It's certainly still leagued better than a Celeron or Atom system where applications take much longer to launch or navigate through. System Performance PCMark results are where we expect them to be relative to other models with the same Core i7-8550U CPU. We appreciate the fact there the system comes with no manufacturer bloatware for a clean Windows 10 experience. DPC Latency LatencyMon reveals no major latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is also without any issues despite the outdated Intel CPU. Storage Devices Internal storage is spacious at 512 GB with transfer rates similar to most SATA III SSDs. The lack of an SD card reader means is less of an issue when the internal drive is as large as most laptop drives. GPU Performance The UHD Graphics 620 is poor by today's standards where Radeon RX Vega and Iris Xe models reign supreme. This won't be an issue for 4K streaming or non-gamers, but even the slightest bit of editing or gaming will benefit significantly from upgrading to the Surface tablet or any other device with AMD Zen or 11th Intel Tiger Lake CPUs. Emissions System Noise The internal fan is noisy and it pulsates frequently. Even simple actions like web browsing will initiate the fan whereas it would remain silent on most other tablets and ULV laptops. Expect the fan to pulse in the 36 to 41 dB(A) range under most conditions or up to 45 dB(A) when running higher loads like games. Temperature Surface temperatures when idling on the desktop are warmer than expected at up to 41 C and 36 C on the front and back hot spots, respectively. Running higher loads will kickstart the internal fan leading to a slightly cooler hot spot of 37 C on the front while the back will be slightly warmer at 40 C. The warmth is noticeable when handling the tablet, but it's thankfully cooler around the edges and corners to not be distracting. Stress Test System idle when running Prime95, the CPU would boost to 2.4 GHz for about 30 seconds until hitting a core temperature of 77 C. Thereafter, clock rates would fall and cycle between 1 GHz and 1.7 GHz in order to maintain a cooler temperature in the 60 C to 65 C range. Turbo Boost sustainability is therefore limited on the LeBook since it is a tablet, after all. Running on battery power will not limit performance. A 3DMark 11 run on batteries would return Physics and Graphics scores of 6186 and 1689 points, respectively, compared to 5384 and 1743 points when on mains.

Why Do People Prefer Laptops Over Notebooks?
Why Do People Prefer Laptops Over Notebooks?
I think you mean "netbook" dear. "Notebook" is the same thing as a laptop. Pros of a netbook: Lightweight Very cheap Super long battery life Cons of a netbook: processors are too weak to do anything more advanced than web browsing. tiny hard drive means you can not store a lot of stuff. small keyboards and screens can sometimes be uncomfortable. Basically if all you want to do is chill on the couch and check facebook, then a netbook is perfect for you. If you plan on writing long documents or playing games or holding a lot of movies/music then you should go with a traditional laptop (a.k.a. "Notebook") or get a full on desktop.1. wanted to buy notebooks - what is the price range?Fortunately, no laptop is close to iPad, iPad is a pain in the behind - it works great for viewing, but not for much else. We are seeing HP and Lenovo laptops starting at around $400. I bought a reconditioned HP Envy 3D 17 for a great price on eBay from ColoComputer.2. COLLEGE STUDENTS: Why are notebooks better than binders in college?In high school, I would get a lot of worksheets from teachers that would be hole punched, so binders made sense. At my college, we rarely get those, so normally it's just note taking. Notebooks are easier to carry around and if you get any worksheets or handouts you can just staple them into the book or most notebooks have folders in them that are for this purpose. Some notebooks have tabs, or you can just make them yourself for better organization. Buy your supplies after the first class (I have had one class that a binder did make sense in having), but make sure you bring at least one notebook and pen to the first class. Good luck!3. Is this a good configuration for the new Dell Inspiron 15 notebooks?For me I have an Inspiron 7XXXX series and it was in BIOS Advance>Function Key Behavior and now everything works just fine!! Many Thanks!4. What is a good amount for hard drives on notebooks?The size is fine, but the speed is slow. Thry to get a 5400rpm or 7200rpm I would rather have a 100gb 5400/7200 rpm since it really affects performance of the pc. Also, check to see the cache size. Should be 8 mb or larger.5. how do i enable my compaq notebooks webcam?Okay I will try to help thee. First, assuming you have Windows 7 or Vista, click the start button, bottom left, and then type in words such as "webcam" "web cam" "web camera" and then it should appear in the search results. However, if it show no sign of it, try this. My web cam's launch application is in "C:Program Files (x86)TOSHIBATOSHIBA Web Camera Application" So what you should attempt is to go to "Computer" known as "My Computer" in XP, click your hard drive. Your hard drive should be labeled under the section "Hard Disks Drives". It should say "x GB free of x GB" (for example, 140 GB free of 286 GB) Click that, then try Program Files (x86). After this I am not sure what a Compaq has, for I have a Toshiba. If there is a file called "Compaq", click that. After you clicked that scan the list for something relating to a web camera. If this does not work, check under Program Files without the x86 at the end, click "Compaq" and then scan the list. I hope this helps, was not too overwhelming, and leads you to a solution. Have a nice evening.6. Where can I buy a bag for cheap that can fit like 2-3 notebooks, papers, wallet etc.,?I got both of mine from Target and have had them for months and no sign of ripping or anything! Check it out there! :)7. What is the name of that movie about a young boy who liked to draw on notebooks and chairs?more Explain .. please thank you8. Where to get free paper notebooks at online?Nobody does 'free', especially if they have to ship anything9. In college, do kids take notes more on laptops or in notebooks?I take my notes in a notebook. I've noticed that most other students who "take notes on laptops" are actually checking their Facebook or IMing people during class. Though there are some students who are disciplined enough to use their laptop strictly for notes
