Built the first Eee PC netbook, Asus, seems to have gotten the memo that netbook isn’t “in” anymore. Never underestimate the power of small. The Asus 1015E mini-notebook strikes the perfect balance between productivity, mobility and value. However, this new 10,1-inch laptop nowhere on Asus’ product page does the word netbook appear, even though its screen size and $299 price tag put it in line with pretty much every netbook ever made.

What is the 1015E Series Notebook capable of?

Anything a normal laptop can do, aside from advanced PC games. It’ll just do it much slower, thanks to its 1.1 GHz Celeron processor and its 5400 RPM hard drive — the solid-state drives used in the 11-inch MacBook Air are the biggest reason why they feel so fast compared to PC laptops the same size. Get back to where you left off right away with ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II—delivering two-second instant on resume from hibernated model. With its energy-conserving design, now you can keep programs active and go into standby mode for up to 14 daysii. What’s more, data is automatically backed up when battery level drops below 5% to ensure your files are always saved.

What are its other specs like?

It has a 1366 x 768 display, which is the same resolution as a midrange laptop’s but sharper thanks to the smaller screen. It also has “up to” 7 1/2 hours of battery life, an option which probably increases the price, weight, and thickness (it’s normally less than an inch thick and weighs 2.64 pounds).
Compared to USB 2.0, now you can transfer data up to ten times fasterii with USB 3.0, leading to quicker backups and data access. Designed with bigger speakers and chambers plus exclusive sound tuning, the built-in ASUS SonicMaster Lite technology empowers superior audio performance on the 1015E compared with other notebooks in the same class.
Feel the difference, hear the difference. Now you can finally see grandpa’s face clearly. The 720p HD front-facing camera plus microphone make VoIP, video chatting, and socializing better with vivid image and clear sound quality.
Most of the other features are more or less standard, except for its ability to resume from hibernate mode in two seconds.

Why isn’t it called a “netbook?”

“Netbook” has first meaned a small, slow, and cheap laptop. Asus earlier announced plans to abandon the “netbook” market, while Samsung and Acer have both moved on to making netbook-sized “Chromebooks” instead. Maybe Asus appears to have decided to just keep making netbooks, and call them by a different name.

If you are interested in this Asus 1015E mini-notebook, you can keep your close attention to it or go for it. While enjoying it, you can create account to protect personal information on Windows. If you forget your password and can’t get access to your notebook, you can try Windows Password Recovery Tool, which can help you reset Asus password instantly for lost or forgotten administrator or other user accounts.

Recently, it was reported that people who using Windows phone 7.X and Windows phone 8 were unable to access Google Maps in Internet Explorer browser. They was automatically redirected to Google’s homepage.

Yesterday, Google responsed that Google made the decision to redirect users away from Google Maps on Windows Phone devices. As many users know, Google Maps works well on Internet Explorer for desktops. Microsoft said that if IE 10 could render a page, Windows Phone 8 should be able to render Google Maps equally well. So, accessing Google Maps issue on Windows Phone devices is about vendor choice, not browser capabilities.

“Recent improvements” to IE mobile and Google Maps now provide better experience and Google will remove the redirect.

Google says it will no longer keep Windows Phone 7.X and Windows phone 8 users away from accessing Google Maps, which intends to ensure a good user experience.

Google, the search and mobile-OS giant said the following in a statement sent to The Next Web today:

Windows Phone 8 accessing Google Maps Issue

“We periodically test Google Maps compatibility with mobile browsers to make sure we deliver the best experience for those users.

In our last test, IE mobile still did not offer a good maps experience with no ability to pan or zoom and perform basic map functionality. As a result, we chose to continue to redirect IE mobile users to Google.com where they could at least make local searches. The Firefox mobile browser did offer a somewhat better user experience and that’s why there is no redirect for those users.

Recent improvements to IE mobile and Google Maps now deliver a better experience and we are currently working to remove the redirect. We will continue to test Google Maps compatibility with other mobile browsers to ensure the best possible experience for users.”

In a word, Windows phone users will be able to access Google Maps soon in order to improve user experience.

If you are using Windows Phone 7.X and Windows Phone 8, you may be worrying losing all your personal data like photos you took with your phone, videos you recorded, documents for word and music you loved. Here is a easy solution for you.

As a matter of fact, you have a memory card (Most likely is Micro SD card) on your Windows phone that all your files are stored there. And there are some Windows phone data recovery software that enable you recover deleted, lost data on the memory card of your Windows phone by a few mouse clicks on computer.

Only if you are one of the millions of computer user, you must know that hard drive stores all your data that is saved to your computer. Solid state drive (SSD hard drive) is becoming the most popular factory-installed hard drive. SSDs looks exactly like HDDs on the outside, but they don’t have much in common on the internal processes. SSD drive doesn’t have a moving part which at the same time, standard hard drive has two magnetic and spinning plates. That is why SSD drive requires less power suply and runs faster to save data. What’s more, SSD drives can read data directly so that the computers are able to boot up faster. So, how about upgrading to a solid state drive from a standard hard drive to make your computer run faster and convenient to use?

If you are interested in upgrading your Windows with a SSD drive, I’m here to recommend you one good choice to show you how brilliant a SSD drive it is. Look at the quick review for the OCZ Vector SSD drive.

SSD drive data recovery

The OCZ Vector SSD is good at performance and looks. It is fast, energy-efficient and good-looking. And it comes with cloning software and desktop accessories. However, hardware encryption is not supported. This is not a big deal.

If you’re looking for a fast SSD drive for your computer, be it running Windows OS or a Mac OS X, the OCZ Vector will be an excellent choice, as far as performance is concerned. And in energy usage, it works well under Windows and Mac OS.

This year particularly in these a few months, Microsoft released a lot more products than the past 20 years, including Windows 8, Windows RT, Surface RT, and Windows Phone 8. And you may be using some of them to read my article here at this very moment.

On this October, it is no doubt that Windows’s products have already been and will still be the hottest topic in IT industry. Microsoft released its new tablet-Surface on October 16. Ten days after, the latest Windows OS-Windows 8 just came out. What is more, in the coming October 29th, Windows Phone 8 will be released as well. Last but not least, on the October 30th, there will be Microsoft’s giant developer conference, Build. Microsoft stuff may be busy all this month long.

To be fair, the autumn is loaded with new service releases in any case, because individuals tend to purchase them for the holidays. Not to mention there offers some logic inside not liberating everything at one time. By spacing out releases, you could possibly get more of the news bundle. It’s a mix of blows with multiple mass media hits, since publications talk about Thing A in one issue, and then Thing W in another. Potential clients get manufacturer reinforcements. The answer is to actually, you understand, space all of them out.

Microsoft Windows

Simply by hosting events just a few days apart, particularly when we’re talking concerning products with very comparable names though significant differences, Microsoft is really as likely to produce confusion since curiosity. As well as confusion is a huge problem. Fast question: What’s the difference between Windows 8 and Windows RT? Perhaps the workers in the Microsoft Retailers themselves may’t tell you.

But possibly Microsoft Windows doesn’t need retailers, or distinct launches. Possibly the advertising dollars the organization plans to invest will allow everyone know what Surface is actually, how Windows RT differs from Windows 8, and also why you would like to buy one of them.

As you may know, Microsoft company is going to make a big announcement June 16, 2012. A tablet running Windows RT will be the main topic. I’ll tell you what I knew just now.

So, what is Windows RT?

You may have heard that Windows 8 and Windows RT are different. Microsoft is going to make a part of the latest Windows 8 version to run on ARM processors called Windows RT. As with Windows NT, what does “RT” actually mean? Why on it is named similar to WinRT ( the shortened name for Windows Runtime)? I believe that most of us people can’t understand it. Hold on! WinRT is not the abbreviation for Windows RT? They are not the same thing? No! Do not mistake WinRT for Windows RT!

Windows Runtime (which is called WinRT) runs on both Windows 8 and Windows RT. I refers to the collection of APIs that developers can write software interacted with hardware. But Windows RT is named for Windows 8 on ARM but is a special edition of Windows 8.

Windows RT tablet

What is ARM?

ARM processors power virtually all iOS, Android, and other mobile devices on the market. ARM has gained so much traction in large part because of its better battery management.

So, how to distinguish Windows 8 and Windows RT?

There are several differences between Windows 8 and Windows RT which may cause Windows RT to fail while Windows 8 succeeds.

1.Windows RT can run only on ARM-powered devices.

2.Windows RT has a Desktop mode, but it will be restricted to pre-installed, Microsoft-produced software.

3. As Windows RT comes device encryption.

4.None of x86/x64 apps runs on Windows RT.

What apps can run on Windows RT?

If the applications can run on Windows 8 Metro, they can run on Windows RT. It looks like no way to easily distinguish Windows RT based on tablet from Windows 8 based on tablet, which could result in buyer confusion.

It is no doubt that both consumers and manufacturers are interested in Windows RT. Let’s look forward to it’s release.

Windows OS  is a series of graphical interface operating systems developed, marketed, and sold by Microsoft company.  Windows operating system dominates the world’s PC market since it came out till today, overtaking Mac OS (Released 1 year earlier than Windows). As we all know that Windows operating system is available for several version including Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and the latest version Windows 8 so far.

What is the suitable Windows version for your own choice?

Many computer new users may have asked this question for million of times. But the answer to this question can be told easily. It depends on a lot of facts. Theses days, Windows 8, which just came out,  is the latest version available but do not consider it as a perfect version to you. Similarly, Windows 7 is the most flexible Microsoft OS (operating system) to date, but some users will have ample reason to stick with Vista or Windows XP until Windows 7 is on store shelves. A lot depends on what you are using your computer for and on which type of computer you’re using. Gamers, media authors, travel-inclined business people and casual web surfers all have different priorities and will want to choose OSs accordingly.

We’ve provided a brief outline of the basic features and key uses of Windows 7, Vista and Windows XP to give you an idea of which OS is right for you. More detailed information about each of the Windows versions can be found in our hands on reviews above.

Windows 8

Similar with the other versions of Windows OS, downloading Windows 8 Preview version just takes a few minutes for a 4 GB download. Comparing to other versions, the installation of Windows 8 is easier and needs less keyboard typing. It’s main layout is surrounded by ther interface of Metro. So we can tell that Metro is the biggest difference on the visible layout of Windows 8. It is built around a tablet model with large buttons showing the most used applications of each windows users. All the functions and settings for Windows 7 are hiding but you can easily get back to the Windows 7 interface by click “Desktop”.

Windows-8

However, it is a pity that the typical start menu of  Windows is gone in Windows 8 so that, to open or run a particular program, you have to pin the program’s name into the task bar. In my own opinion, Microsoft Windows seems to be under the lead of Mac OS to develope something that appeals to the novice. For the computer begainner, Windows 8 is much more easy-to-use, which allows them to look at the local weather, their stocks or their Facebook information, twitter, etc. by clicking on a big icon.

In a word, for most of us that familiar with Windows 7, Windows 8 hides the things that makes Win 7 so amazing. However, for those of us who want to use computers to make documents, worksheets, programing and drawing, we are not satisfied by Windows 8 performance. The one last thing I can say, I’m looking forward to Windows 9, or Windows 10?

Windows 7

Windows 7 has hit the computer world with a bang and is turning heads around the world. One thing that stands out about Windows 7 is the ability to personalize and make it your own in layout, alongside this comes new and advanced features such as Snap, Shake, Pin, Windows Search and much more. We are in a new age so a new fresh interface and look of Windows 7 are welcome changes, especially compared to Vista.

Windows-7

Windows 7 has some highlight features that the earlier versions do not have, including plug and play capability with hardware and peripheral devices, Completely customizable task bar, Jump lists, Homegroup networking, Low memory footprint.

Windows Vista

We all know how bumpy Vista’s release was. Vista operating system was demanding, awkward and aggravating. But do not think Vista is a bad operating system just because it’s failure at release . Many Vista users prefer to continue using Vista even Windows 7 and 8 released.

In comparison with XP, Vista contains many changes and new features, including an updated graphical user interface and visual style dubbed Aero, advanced protection from malware, parental control options, a redesigned search function, multimedia tools including Windows Media Center, Windows DVD Maker, Windows sidebar and redesigned networking, audio, print, and display sub-systems. Vista aims to increase the level of communication between machines on a home network, using peer-to-peer technology to simplify sharing files and media between computers and devices.

Windows XP

Despite the fact that XP has been around for years, it is relatively forgiving on older machines and netbooks. XP continues to have a great reputation amongst gamers due to its low impact idling and compatibility with both old and new programs. Users with specific multimedia demands that don’t want to upgrade their hardware will find XP an appealing alternative to the more demanding Vista. As of April 2012, Windows XP market share is at 27.3% after having peaked at 76.1% in January 2007. All of us have to commit that Windows XP dominates the world’s personal computer maket for years since it came out.

Windows XP OS

Windows XP still owns several classic features that the above versions can’t overtake, including: Faster start-up, Driver rollback, Low system requirements, Low memory footprint.

Why You Choose this Windows Version?

When determining which version of Microsoft Windows OS is most suitable one for you, you need to consider more about what you use the computer for. After all, the aim to choose a operating system that fits you most is to make your life and work more comfortable.

After reading this article about Windows Review, I think you can make up your mind that which Windows is the best choice for you.
