Thursday has already arrived. I have plenty of tasks on my plate, and time just seems to tick fast when I want it to tick slow and vice versa.
My uncle wants to buy his son a notebook computer for a graduation present, and I’ve been elected to select the right one based on his son’s requests. I’ve run into the inevitable: two to choose from but which one to choose? I’m looking at a Turion 64 X2 notebook and a Core Duo notebook. They are both great candidates, but so many factors come into play when it comes to selecting one.
Bro, tell me which one to get. I’m calling you tomorrow about it anyway.
- Intel Core Duo T2350(1.86GHz) 15.4″ Wide XGA 1GB 80GB DVD Super Multi Intel GMA950
- AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56(1.80GHz) 15.4″ Wide XGA 1GB DDR2 533 120GB DVD Super Multi ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 IGP
Intel seems to be the overall champion in the energy-efficient notebook processors, but AMD has a great left hook with pricing. The Turion has three main advantages: 64-bit processing, a bigger hard drive and a Radeon graphics processor. I’m tilting towards the one with the Turion, but the Core Duo has the 2MB cache. The Core Duo’s aesthetics are more pleasing than the Turion’s. This does take some thinking, and I’ve given it some time but know I need more. I should have a decision by tomorrow night, so I’ll be able to place the order.
A wired network is faster than most wireless networks and also provides a stable connection even when radio signals dissipate unlike wireless connections. To ensure that you receive an optimal connection, you have to make sure that you invest in high-quality network cables. You also have to make sure you purchase the right length and have enough for all of your computers.
