All right, this module, we're gonna talk about portable computers and the different kind of portal portable computers in the parts that make them up.
00:14
Eso portable computers more often called laptops.
00:18
They have the same kind of functionality of PC. And there's many types, just like there's many types of PCs where we have
00:23
gaming PCs, and we have video editing PCs that have specialized functions. We also have various different kinds of laptops or, uh,
00:32
depending on the kind of use, you're gonna have to have a lot of common features. What makes a really nice that they're portable, They have batteries. You can use them without having a outlet nearby.
00:41
They all Usually they all have some form of flat screen LCD technology You're not going to see her tea to. That would make it
00:48
very portable. The development of the LCD flat screen technology is really what
00:52
made portable computing come in to its own.
00:56
And they have a lot of the same kind of functionalities for ports and,
01:00
ah,
01:00
extent expansion capabilities that a typical PC would have.
01:06
So the first time we're gonna talk about her desktop replacements,
01:08
these air probably these air the least portable of any kind of,
01:12
uh, laptop portable computer. They have basically all the same functionality as a PC would have a lot of them have the same actual components. Instead of a module smaller version of a processor, they'll have the full blown process like a desktop would have, um,
01:29
downfall form is their portable in the strictest sense and that you could move easily and runs off battery. But it has high performance but short battery life because of the high performance. It's not something you're going to use while sitting on the airplane.
01:42
A good example is like I almighty Oh, my laptops have always been best top replacement laptops, and that's because I don't use it on the plane, but the kind of work I do when I get to another location, like a hotel. I need a computer that has all the processing power of a desktop PC. But I'm not gonna drag a
01:57
a desktop with me, so all the functionality I need is in one system. They usually have a lot more hard drive space. They have higher part graphics cards and you'd see in a typical portable laptop and the other thing is that you have a much bigger screen, as you could see in this one. They usually range from, like 17 TV 18 inches and screen with
02:15
as a post, and that's one of the things that makes it so.
02:19
Bagan cumbersome.
02:21
They're also called gaming laptops or Media Center laptops. So a lot of these most portable computers don't have very good graphics cards, have the low and just capable of doing basic Windows or Lennox functions. Another. And the reason they do that to save power because higher and graphs cars require more power. Everyone wants longer battery life,
02:39
so these ones have higher. Ah, deep using them for you can actually play games on him. So
02:47
next words out of our net books Netbooks. Ah, came out in the last three or four years.
02:53
They're kind of going back out of style again. Now, um, they're only cool for a couple of years.
03:00
They're low cost had very long battery life. They used lowest possible kind of process. You really could use thio
03:07
to ah, power, a laptop computer. The key was just have basically the kind of basic functionality do Web and Internet
03:15
type functions check emails on a computer is like a keyboard and a screen.
03:22
No, but those have kind of gone out of style in being replaced by
03:28
tablets
03:30
and ultra books. They're kind of a mix between a regular portable computer and a
03:37
ah ah and a netbook, so they're thin and light. Most of them have SS teas, and they still have high power processors in him, with the high part with longer battery life. But
03:49
to make up for it, they lack a lot of the features, like a normal laptop or desktop would have. So most of these don't have that many USB ports. They won't have a see Rahm drive. They will have much for expansion capabilities
04:01
in all that safe space.
04:03
So
04:04
the basics, but still powerful enough where this is really attractive is for a lot of business users who travel a lot so you can still have enough power to do and screen size to do a lot of word processing stuff like that without the hindrance that Net book would have.
04:21
And last two tablets like I mentioned a few slides ago, those kind of replaced netbooks no networks and con castile because tablets for now, just a powerful, if not more than
04:31
netbooks are.
04:33
A lot of these have
04:35
have options where you could get a keyboard with, um,
04:39
or you can use without the keyboard. They all have touch screens on them, which makes him very convenient to use for regular Web surfing,
04:46
and some of them have even, uh, cell phone radios inside them. So if you're traveling, you can get on the Internet without having to be on a WiFi spot.
