Do scan through local bulletin boards near you for cheap deals on laptop. Students or even companies do offer their used computers or laptops for sale when their studies or projects end. I personally had gotten a few good deals for my family and friends.
Disney Netpal by Asus: This Disney pink laptop sells for about only $340 and comes with a cute Disney pink logo and pink abstract pattern on the outside. Though the laptop screen size is only 8.9 inches, the color itself “princess pink” is sure to please any girl. The laptop comes with a 1.6ghz Intel atom processor with 1GB ram and a 160GB hard drive; these specs are sure to be plenty of resources for an entry-level laptop. The laptop also comes with several security features such as website blacklisting and whitelisting for protection.
One of the most fundamental questions that any laptop salesman must be able to answer is the CPU used by the laptop. As you might know, these days, the minimum CPU configuration a laptop must have is the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Anything less than that, and we are looking at a (very likely) sub-standard laptop. So make sure you ask the salesman what CPU is used by the laptop. And he better have an answer.
Technical specifications. There should be enough RAM, storage space / hard drive and computing speed. The technical specifications would depend on the most probable purpose of the laptop to the owner. If the laptop would be used for playing 3D games, it is ideal to get at least a 256 RAM. If several music or video files will be stored, a larger hard drive should be considered, 40 gigabyte is ideal.
Another great laptop security measure is to never leave access numbers or passwords in your carrying case. Keeping your password with your laptop is like keeping the keys in the car. Without your password or important access numbers it will be more difficult for a thief to access your personal and corporate information.
Capacity-wise, they’re relatively small – usually well under 100 MB. However, they’re very useful for moving files quickly and easily from one computer to another, e.g., moving a PowerPoint presentation from your naprawa laptop?w to your business associate’s laptop.
The next item on your list is RAM (temporary memory). Most laptops come with Windows XP which needs at least 256 mb ram to run happily. I urge you to upgrade to 512 ram for best results. The more RAM you have, the better your laptop will behave. It is said that increasing your RAM is the best and cheapest way of improving performance of any computer (i.e. without changing the motherboard/cpu).
