All About Computers
From the powerful desktop gaming PC to the ultra-mobile laptop, netbook, and tablet, there’s a computer out there for everyone. Future Shop carries a huge selection of computers from top brands like Samsung, HP, Sony, Acer, Toshiba, Apple, and more. But “Which one’s right for me” you ask? That depends. Because computers vary so much in form, power, and function, the solution isn’t always crystal clear. But we’re here to help. Read on.
Modern desktop computers are usually packed to the seams with powerful specs, making them perfect for demanding tasks like gaming, editing HD video, and creating a multimedia hub for your home. Juiced specifications aside, the desktop PC is great for taking care of your day-to-day stuff, too.
The latest laptops offer much of the same processing punch as a desktop, with a lot less weight under the hood. Available in a range of sizes and specifications, the laptop is small enough to take with you anywhere, yet powerful enough to take on some of the toughest tasks.
Like a laptop, only smaller, the netbook computer was designed to allow you to take care of your day to day stuff like email, surfing the web, and working in documents. Most net books have enough power to run multimedia applications. And, because of their super-compact size and efficient operation, they let you enjoy total mobile freedom.
Like a desktop, but with a built-in monitor that often has a touch screen display. All-In-One PCs are designed to be user friendly, providing everything you need in one package. They’re easy to set-up, easy to use, and offer up enough power for day-to-day tasks, multimedia, and even some gaming.
A category on their own, Apple’s line of desktops includes the Mac Pro, the iMac, and the Mac Mini. Each of these models caters to a different user, from the graphic designer to the casual web-surfer and social networker. Apple also has a wide range of laptops in different sizes, from the MacBook and MacBook Air to the MacBook Pro.
The latest in computing technology and industry darling is the tablet computer. These marvellous machines are razor thin, small in size, with screens ranging from 7 to 11 inches, and pack a pared-down operating system that allows you to rip through your day to day tasks, watch video, surf the net, and more.
