Dell Vostro 1200 Battery Maintenance Tip?

  • Do not dump too many programs in to your laptop. You may argue that today's processors can handle any number of programs; well- it is partially true. Laptop processors are way more delicate than desktop processors, the more programs you load on your laptop, more it will be pushed to the limit and may breakdown at some point. Have a look at your programs atleast once a week and remove the unwanted ones, the tiny ones even.
  • Do not let too many unwanted processes run in your laptop. Check the processes that are running on your laptop, google their names and know whether it is a must needed one or an unwanted one. If it is an unwanted one, make sure you stop them and also make sure that they don't start automatically on your next restart (You can do this will the help of options like msconfig , get proper help if you not sure about which process to stop).
  • It is not a sin to play games on your laptop. But loading a game that is 30GB and playing it all the time can seriously jeopardize the performance of your laptop parts (processor, keyboard etc). Load games that does not stress the processor or play online games, this will keep your laptop going for a long long time.
  • Never plugin the charger to the laptop until the laptop battery is dry. Imagine your laptop just like a mobile, when you are using it, you should only use it without the charger being plugged in. This practice will increase your laptop battery life tremendously!
  • Do not use any liquid that is not recommended to clean your laptop screens, laptop screens have delicate coatings on them and if you use a wrong chemical to clean it, it may ruin the screen permanently. Use a dry cloth to clean your laptop screens, keep your laptop away while you are eating or drinking and dont clean your screen too often.
  • One of the laptop parts that gets quickly affected because of bad usage is the disc players in the laptop. The players are not your coffee stand , always remember and do not burn CD/DVD unless and until it is much needed. Burning DVDs often will decrease the life of the players as well as the batteries as disc burning consumes lot of power!
  • Do not use more than one anti virus in your laptop (malware is also an anti virus remember). Having too anti viruses may lead to some unwanted / heavy processes to be started. So better have one light anti virus version like the Microsoft security essentials or AVG (will never recommend McAfee or Norton as they are too heavy for a laptop).
  • Please use your desktop to do things like rendering a complex media file etc. Laptop processors have limited capabilities and cannot handle things like rendering a complex animation file for hours together.
  • Do not plugin things like USB fans or other fancy items to showup when the laptop is running on batteries, laptops are never designed to run them and it will make your battery dead in no time.
  • It is better to sell your laptop and buy a latest one than to upgrade individual parts in the laptop. Since the components of the laptop are designed to match precisely, the chance of an upgrade component like the processor to fit all the other parts in the laptop happens only once in a while.
  • Use free programs like ccleaner and clean unwanted files once in a while , do disk defragmentation atleast once in a month and make sure the partitions in the laptop are equally done.
  • Do not let your laptop heatup. If your laptop is hot, it either means that there is no proper ventilation or processor is stressed. In this case, you can turn off the laptop for a while and then turn it on.
  • Treat your laptop like a friend and not like a mere electronic gadget. This way, you will not feel stressed while maintaining your laptop.

What qualities of man would make better world?

Like many people, do you find it difficult to love your neighbor of an ethnic group other than your own? Perhaps this is so because you have learned about or have personally experienced discrimination and injustice. You or your loved ones may even have suffered abuse at the hands of people of another group.

Since Jesus indicated that one of God's commandments is that we love our neighbor, it must be possible to overcome such strong feelings. The key to doing so is to view people as God and Christ do. (Matthew 22:37-39)

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955

Price: 350$

It's difficult to ignore a laptop that has the price tag of 350$ only, a good television were not this low cost five years ago. But the question arise after seeing such price that what I am getting for such price.

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is one of the entry-level laptop that we choose for our Back-to-School roundup. Its not only the price tag of 350$ catches our attention but its quality also. We can have 15.4" display with all the necessary component like 2.2GHz Intel Celeron 900, 2GB, DDR2 800MHz memory, 160GB 5,400rpm hard drive, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphic card with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and its weight is just 6.5 pounds.

The good side of the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is its cheapest price and the decent screen look with great video streaming.

The bad side of the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5955 is its old slow processor, thick and boxy look and have no webcam.

HP Compaq CQ60-417DX

Price: 499$

Our second laptop that comes in our back-to-school roundup is HP Compaq CQ60-417DX. The laptop has a price tag of 499$. The thing that make it a complete machine is its component that not only easy to work with it as Netbook but has also the basic items that a standard laptop have.

Specification includes Intel Celeron 900/2.20 GHz CPU, memory 3GB with a Storage of 160GB. It is also supported by DVD +/-RW. The hot 802.11b/g Wireless LAN with Bluetooth 2.0 make it a great laptop. It has Microsoft Windows Vista. So you can consider it while go for shopping.

Dell i1545-012B

Price: 429$

Our next laptop in back-to-school roundup is Dell i1545-012B. It comes with a price tag of 429$. It really worth its price as it has Intel Pentium Dual Core 2.0 T4200 CPU. Display size is also a great factor that play a major role while considering to buy.

Good side of Dell i1545-012B is its 14.7 inches Wide-display screen that is powered with Dual Core CPU.

The bad side of Dell i1545-012B is its very stripped-down design that misses some basic functions.

To conclude Dell i1545-012B is great mainstream laptop that has price less than 500$.

Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965

Price: 449$

Again we have here a Toshiba laptop with a Dual Core CPU in price just under 500$. Can you imagine Dual Core laptop just for 449$ in the time of financial crises.Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965 is equipped with Windows-Vista and it is powered by a dual-core AMD Athlon X2 CPU, 3GB of RAM, a decent 16:9 15.6-inch screen, a DVD burner, 250GB hard drive, and basic ATI graphics-which is a pretty good package for less than $500.

It leave behind the sluggish Intel Celeron processors as it has the dual-core AMD Athlon X2 CPU in entry level price.

The bad side of the Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965 is its bulky design and it also lack some basic feature like Bluetooth and webcam.

To conclude for a price just less than a Netbook, Toshiba's smart 15.6-inch Satellite L505D-S5965 is good choice to have and can fulfill one's basic computing needs.

Can you lock the lid on the dell inspiron 1545?

If you buy a new laptop does that include the Internet?

The "Internet" is a large network of numerous different computers and servers that all work together to form a large network that is accessible to all. The only requirement to access a computer is hardware that enables wireless functionality (nearly always built into any laptop - wired capabilities as well, and in desktop computers), as well as access to the Internet through an ISP (Internet Service Provider). Examples of such ISP's are:

  • Time Warner Cable
  • Comcast
  • Verizon
  • Etc.
