Why to Choose Ultrabook | Guide for New Comers

They are the lightest and thinnest laptops yet and the biggest & very popular computing category of the years. Here is what you need to know when joining the Ultrabook generation. [By Eric Grevstad]

ultrabook-2012 Tablets and Netbooks are Toys? Nope. The Holy Grail of Portable productivity is a no compromise laptop with a full-sized, comfortable keyboard; easy on the eyes display; all the performance and ports of a desktop replacement; the convenience of near instant on startup; and all day battery life all in a package so think and light you will forget it’s in your briefcase.
It’s not a new vision, but it has a big new backer or cheerleader in Intel, which at the Computex trade show in May 2011 sketched the outline of what it calls Ultrabooks. In August, the chip giant announced a $300 million marketing and R&D campaign for the new category. And by January 2012’s CES, Intel was boasting of 15-odd Ultrabooks on the market with another 60 designs in the pipeline.
If you would like to board this bandwagon, the first thing to know is that while Intel as a trademark on the capitalized word Ultrabook, it doesn’t have a monopoly on the idea. The 2.9-pound Apple MacBook Air 13-inch dates back to 2008, and its magazine-like-profile, tapering from 0.7 inches thick in back to just 0.1 inch in front, has inspired numerous Ultrabook designers (some Apple fans would say copycats). There’s also a MacBook Air 11 inches.
Samsung-Ultrabooks On the Windows side, Samsung Series 9 also predates Intel’s Ultrabook push, and Samsung doesn’t use the term in describing it; the company’s super thin flagship is available in 13 and 15 inches size. The Series 9 is also, like the MacBook Air, a premium or status symbol machine that lands north of Intel’s pricing guidelines for Ultrabooks theoretically, under $1,000 for 13 inch models, a goal not all manufacturers have met (prices at this writing range from around $800 to more than $1,400 for fully loaded systems).

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. 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. Why I am talking only about graphics memory of my PC because Microsoft didn't mention any thing about required graphics card of amount of memory (as far as I read about it), and my RAM and Processor is enough sufficient to operate W…
