With fast processing, impressive features, and an attractive price, notebooks are hard to resist. Here’s how to pick a model that suits your needs.
PC makers have shifted their attention from netbooks to tablets. Competition has grown fiercer, too. The choices, meanwhile, are coming from all sorts of household names, like Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Dell, and HP. As a category, netbooks are such a diverse group that it’s hard to come up with a single, all-encompassing definition. The best indicators that you’re dealing with a netbook are a low price, light weight, and also low-powered components. Netbooks vary in screen size, typing experience, and specialty features. And now the war is heating up between Intel and AMD at the component level. Luckily, this netbook-buying guide does just that.

First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is.
