      Advantages

      • Reliability

      Disadvantages

      This model has some upgraded versions also, so we can buy that also.

      Basic Idea
      ***
      HP is a well known name in consumer electronics, especially in computers and printers. Workstations from HP are most popular due to most advanced features and time to time updates. Some of workstations are really rocking with ultimate processing speed and advanced features. Workstations are generally considered as highly configured desktop PCs, but the tradition has been changed now. People wants a good workstation but they also want to carry it while traveling. I also think that, these should be a good workstation PC but it should be like notebook kind so that I can carry it with me. HP has its solution and they really caught the inner thinking of consumers. After rocking success of desktop workstations PC, HP has now decided to enter in mobile workstation market. If we take a look on some other brands, than Dell also have some high end mobile workstations with extremely high configurations. But they are generally meant for higher end business use and configurations and price tags are very high. So as per personal use, HP has some good mobile workstations. This laptop, HP Compaq Mobile Workstation 8510w, is called as mobile workstation but it is generally a kind of high configured notebook PC. The features are really good but it more than like notebook.
      I want to discuss some good features and performance of this mobile workstation, and how it can be a good friend of your routine business.
      ***
      The Workstation
      This mobile workstation is completely looks like a notebook and nothing different than any notebook. But the main differences are its features and performance. Notebook has 15.4" TFT display size and it is like popular 15.4" screen size laptop. So this display size is most popular in notebook category and this workstation also has similar kind of display screen and it doesn't show any kind of hard feeling like heavy weight and display screen. You will find that, you are using any notebook of 15.4" display size. Second important thing about this workstation is its display aspect ratio. As per my opinion or choice, I don't like wide screen resolution screen. I always prefer 4:3 aspect ratio screens for better view in applications. Wide screen is completely for gaming and watching movies. So for business purpose, widescreen notebooks are not a good choice. Coming to the screen resolution of this notebook, it has 1680 x 1050 ( WSXGA+ ) display screen. The aspect ratio is something like 5:3. This is a perfect screen ratio for any application use. For some applications like AutoCAD and other drawings software's, we need some squire size of display screen. The squire size or non widescreen display screen gives more size of working space other than wide screens. Wide screen display size is perfect for watching movies and gaming.
      ***
      Further discussion point of this workstation is its design and weight. Design is most important due to mobility and this notebook is also named with mobile workstation. It has 15.4" display size so that there is nothing special with its dimensions as it similar to any 15.4" notebook, but the thickness of this workstation is important. I think this notebook has excellent thickness with only 1.1 in height. If we have a look on Apple's MacBook than it is similar like that. Apple's MacBook has only 1 inch thickness and this notebook is similar to MacBook. Weight is slightly higher than any other similar notebook, but this doesn't matter.
      ***
      Processing Speed

      Processing speed is most considerable point for any computing machine rather than design and look. This is a mobile workstation and design doesn't matter too much. We will only consider its processing speed and performance.
      This workstation has best available processor with some good combination of RAMs and graphics memory. Now the point goes to its preinstalled processor. If we have a look on history, than we will find that notebook processors are not such high with compare to desktop processors. We don't have any notebook with quad core processor and all notebooks are available with highest core 2 duo processors only. If we wants extremely fast performance of the modern technology, than we need to go for some good desktop workstation.
      ***
      This mobile workstation has best available processor for notebook with Intel T series, Core 2 Duo T7500 and the total clock speed is something like 2.2 GHz. 2.2 GHz speed is a regular speeds. The processor is of core 2 duo family and most of the desktop PCs also have this kind of processors. Quad core processors are slightly costly and they are only available for desktop PCs. But the most of the desktop PCs use most popular series core 2 duo processors only. Having a look on notebooks. Second important feature of this processor is its good front side data bus speed with about 800 MHz. 800 MHz speed is best available for any notebook processors and this workstation also has best speed processor. HP has tried to give, whatever is fast and best available. Next important feature of this processor is its cache memory and it also has good capacity with 4 MB of total L2 cache memory. Cache memory is important for fast processing speed and it stores temporary data while processing. The other good combination with this processor is its latest chipset with Mobile Intel PM965 Express chipset. For desktop PCs, we have many advanced chipset but for notebooks, Mobile Intel PM965 Express is the best available chipset. So this mobile workstation has all latest and important stuff.
      ***
      Coming to its next important feature in terms of preinstalled memory. Any computing machines have three kind of memory, first is Random access memory, second is data storage capacity and third one is cache memory.
      Cache memory has been discussed and now the time is for most important memory size with random access memory, generally called as RAM. This mobile workstation has good preinstalled memory size with 2 GB of DDR2 SDRAM. Here we are missing something. The RAM has a speed of about 667 MHz. What is important about this RAM? I don't think that this is a good preinstalled RAM for this workstation. And what are the bad points? First one is its speed and it has regular 667 MHz of speed. Second thing is its technology and this RAM has DDR2 technology but we are now in DDR3's world. The installed size is good but the other points are not so good. 667 MHz speed is considered as regular speed and this RAM's are slightly old and of course out dated. So HP has provided mixed solution, the good size of RAM but with slightly older technology. If we have a look on processing speed with this RAM, than it will provide adequate processing speed with any application and there are nothing like any trouble with this RAM. The best combination of processor and RAM is only possible with same king of speeds. If we need best performance than we have to keep some 800 MHz speed of RAM for this mobile workstation also. The main reason of having 800 MHz of RAM is due to its processor's front side data bus speed and it is 800 MHz 800 MHz RAM's are generally available in both DDR2 and DDR3 technology. But the best solution will be with DDR3 technology RAM.
      ***
      Second and less important memory feature is its storage capacity. Storage capacity is not such important feature as we can easily upgrade it or we can have external storage media to store our data. Every person has different choice about storage capacity but the common requirement is something like 160 GB to 500 GB. This mobile workstation is slightly disappointing in terms of storage capacity, but it doesn't matter. This notebook has only 120 GB of total capacity hard disk drive with Serial ATA-150 - 5400 rpm speed. I think this is not a good decision to providing such a low capacity hard disk drive at the present. But we can use this storage for programmed and applications only or we can upgrade it easily. Second important point about hard disk drive is its technology. This hard disk has serial ATA technology and it has moving parts in it. We have some latest and good hard disk drives in terms of solid state drive. Solid state drives don't have any movable parts in it and they are more trustable than serial ATA drive. The maim disadvantaged of solid state drives are its cost. Solid state drives, SSDs are very costly and available in low capacity with compare to serial ATA drives. If we wants to but a good 500 GB serial ATA drive, than it will cost us as much as 50 to 70$, but the SSD drives will cost us about 400 $. We can get 2 TB capacity serial ATA drive in 400 $.
      SSD drives are in their initial stage and they are very costly. Most important feature of SSDs is trustable technology. We always have problems of hard disk crash in serial ATA drives and the good solution of this problem is SSD drives. SSD drives doesn't have any movable part in it and sue to this feature they have every less chances of hard disk crash.
      ***
      Next important combination for good processing speed is graphics memory. We can't take graphics memory so easy and it has similar kind of importance with Processor and RAM. As per my experience and opinions, graphics memory is most important feature for any computing machine and there are no mean of having good capacity RAM and processor without having good capacity graphics memory.
      Coming to the graphics memory of this mobile workstation, it has good preinstalled graphics card with ATI Mobility FireGL V5600. The total dedicated graphics memory is about 256 MB and it can share addition require memory from Ram till 512 MB.
      ***
      Performance with some applications
      Having a look on processing speed with some applications, like Adobe Photoshop CS3, 3ds max, Google sketch-up, CorelDraw x4 and Autodesk MAYA, this workstation has mixed response. For Adobe Photoshop CS3, this is a perfect solution. For 3D graphics applications, this is an average solution. And for Autodesk MAYA, it is not so good. So if you want to buy it for your daily routine business use than it is a good solution but for some advanced applications and use, you need to go for some more advanced desktop workstations.
      You can also upgrade this workstation with some advanced features like DDR3 technology Ram, more advanced graphics memory for getting better performance.
      Overall this is a good product for business use and mobility features. Good effort from HP. Recommended.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Best choice for cricket lovers

        Cricinfo.com
        **********
        Cricket is a most popular sports game in the world after Soccer. There are large numbers of dedicated fans of cricket in some countries like India, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka, Australia and South Africa. For UK, it is also popular but Soccer is more important here. England is a father of cricket and father of this site also. The site, cricinfo.com was born in London as 15 years ago. Now the site is rocking all around the world with its every required and up to date features and statistics related to cricket. Site is completely dedicated to cricket and there are every details and statistics available related to cricket. I will take a quick look on this site with its some great dominated features and its popularity. The site is a part of ESPN International.
        ***
        First of all I wants to mention some online available about the site. This site has traffic rank of about 232 among many other online sites and of course it has best traffic rank among cricket related sites. Daily page view number is much higher than many other sites, and it is almost 5 million a day. 5 million, not a simple data and it shows its popularity worldwide.
        ***
        This site has almost every cricket related data like most important live scorecard, fixtures and results of previous matches, scorecards of domestic matches ( available for every cricket player countries like, Australia, India, Bangladesh, England, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Wes Indies, Zimbabwe and some other countries also which is not so popular in international cricket.) News, Wallpapers, Records, every statistics, Ranking and ratings of the teams and players, and some cricket related funny games also.
        ***
        The most important feature of the site is its live scorecard. Update of live scorecard on this site is not less than any live TV coverage. We can get every ball update with detailed commentary in seconds in text formats. It also shows running run rate of the team, what happened in last 10 overs and how much overs are remaining of the day in test matches. We can also have detailed statistics of any player by clicking on its name in any place of the site.
        ***
        Live scorecard feature is much popular sue to its quick updates and all important information available in a single page. It also has ball by ball information about the match. Some quick data is available in match full scorecard page. This page is my favorite one as it has many required information like details of complete match with scorecards of each teams, important match notes ( this include some quick information like, what happed in last overs, what was the condition till drink time, lunch time, tea time or inning break time) and match summaries.
        ***
        It also shows 3D animation of ball by ball coverage. In this feature we can easily know the exact condition of every ball and shot. This feature is like live TV coverage and we will feel like live TV coverage experience.
        Site has accurate and trusted statistics about the players, matches, teams, and records. The important point of the site is its ranking statistics. ICC always releases its ranking list after some gap of time but this site updates its raking statistics after every match, so it can give us quick information with accurate data.
        ***
        Over all this is an all-rounder site about the cricket and has all information your requirement. The fast response of the site and full of information is its second name. So have a look on the site and get some new information about the cricket.

          ***
          Site is completely dominated for UK peoples and due to this restriction, it has many quality writers. I want to show some basic data about this site collected from online sources. The traffic rank of this site is about 7738, means in all sites it has 7738th place. Numbers are slightly odd, and it is due to regional site. Dooyoo is a UK based site and it invites UK residents to be a part of this site. So due to regional attraction it has lower traffic rank.
          Daily page views of the site are about 142150. These all data shows the popularity of this site.
          ***
          Site has very good internet community. There are lots of quality writers on the site and they generally don't meant for money earning.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Go for fast and reliable serice

            Gmail
            *****
            Email is a modern way of commutation and there are many online email services available. Some of them are very popular with fast service and features. Gmail is an email service from Google incl. Gmail has many good features but it has more popularity in Asian regions rather than its host place in western countries like America and European territory.
            ***
            I will share some of my experience of accessing this site since last 5 years. The main reason of accessing this site was its fast service. I was familiar with yahoo mail before entering in Gmail, and at the time yahoo mail was very slow to send messages and accessing also. Gmail service was very fast and it takes about 5 seconds to send messages. So I decided to go for this and have a good experience of about 5 years with this service.
            ***
            If we have a look of traffic rank of this site than it has about 1400th rank. The main reason of having this rank is its most popularity in only Asian regions. The western countries' peoples generally use hotmail.com from Microsoft incl. Hotmail service is also very fast and has large numbers of useful features so that it has very large numbers of users in America and European countries.

            This site has daily page view numbers of about 787965 according to online sources. The net worth of this site is about $1.73 Million and the daily ad revenue of the site is about $2366.

            So we have discussed some basic information about Gmail and now I am going to share some of my experience about this site and its features.
            Most important point or feature of this site is its total 7 GB of storage capacity. I have all messages of last 5 years still in my inbox but the total uses size is very less with 969 MB (13%of total capacity). So I need not to worry about my messages and I can view them whenever I want. I think that 7 GB capacity is very large and it will never get full. We can also expect that Gmail will get more capacity in future. Some other features that is also very useful are its chatting and label features. Inside chatting feature is really very impressive and yahoo mail also has this one in their new features. Due to this feature, we can see that who is online or who is offline at the moment. We can also have chats with the friends but it is restricted to message chat only. We can't do voice chat in Gmail service, we have to download and install Google talk for voice chat using our same Gmail ID.
            ***
            A labels feature is a very important stuff for email messages and we can manage them with labels. We can create many labels of most communicated names. After creating labels we can put or movie messages to label directory so that we can easily see all messages of specific category without any problem.
            ***
            Some other feature are, its detail view where we can see that how many times we have accessed this service and on which IP. This is a very important feature as we can know that, is our Gmail safe or not? We can easily know that on which IPs our Gmail has been accessed. If there is any unidentified IP detected, than we can immediately change our password and some other basic information.
            ***
            Some other features are its large attachment carrying capacity, and contact popup menu when we type address in address bar. Gmail automatically save all addressed in its address book whenever we send message to unknown contacts (Unsaved contacts).
            Overall this is a very fast email service and we can trust on this. I am enjoying since last 5 years and you can also join this trusted service.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Improved over XP but not like XP

              Windows Vista Ultimate

              *******************************
              Windows Operating System

              Microsoft, a software giant company has most popular operating system in the world with Windows tag. Windows operating system is ruling on almost 95% computers in the world. What is special with Windows so that it has such popularity? Question is not so complicated, and everyone knows that Windows has many user friendly features with easy access. Windows is so easy and any child who is operating it first time can easily understand it. Everything is predefined and no need for additional help to operate it. The name Windows is indicates that this operating system has all icons like windows and it can be easily access by clicking on it. Some other operating systems also have similar kind of philosophy of accessing like in Macintosh which is also a windows base operating system and Linux. Linux has powerful protecting features against viruses and it has best security controlled but Linux is very complicated to understand and it needs some pre training to operate it. Macintosh has very advanced features but it need very high graphics system to run it otherwise we can't avail full profit with its all features. Macintosh has powerful features but it has very less marketing share against Windows due to user friendly features of Windows and price tag also.
              ***
              Microsoft has taken almost 7 years to develop its next operating system Windows Vista after most popular Windows XP. Finally Windows Vista has been released in first quarter of 2007 and initially it got huge response but slowly its credit went down due to some issues and I will discuss some of them here. Windows XP is a still most popular operating system and many of the peoples in the world still have this one in their PC and notebooks. Windows Vista lost its trust in user's heart due to some non desired issues.
              ***
              The other side I want to mention a bad decision taken by Microsoft to discontinue the selling of Windows XP for increasing sell of its new operating system Vista. This decision got lots of criticise from entire the world. I am also against the termination of XP sell and this is really decision of heart breaking of XP lovers. I am also a huge fan of Windows XP and still have this in my PC. Today I am using Windows Vista but not satisfy with it.
              Windows XP have some security problems and this has been resolved in XP SP3 but I haven't found much improvement over SP2. XP also has major problem of system crash and it can be easily crash due to problems in power supply, virus attack and unknown mistakes.
              ***
              Some Issues Before its features

              Windows Vista has some borderline points and due to these all it is losing the trust in consumer market. The most discussed point is its compatibility features and most of the applications which are very popular and necessary for daily routine life, not compatible with Windows Vista. Vista needs latest versions of all applications due to its visual effect and graphics display. Peoples, who are very familiar with old versions of applications, don't like to upgrade it with latest one and they really can't accept due to some problem in understanding its latest features and changes. Windows Vista needs newer versions of almost all applications and most of the users wants to keep their old versions continue.
              ***
              If we take an example of Microsoft's own applications, Office 2003. Office 2003 is a most popular application in the world and almost all offices have this application as their necessary routine work Now Microsoft has released new version of office with Microsoft Office 2007 and it has been completely changed. The toolbar Windows is really very confusing for those who are very familiar with Office 2003. So they really don't want to upgrade office 2003 to Office 2007 as there are no problems yet with old version.
              ***
              Other important point is its hardware requirement. Windows Vista need some advanced configured PC to run it. There should be at least 2 GHz processor with minimum 1 GB RAM and good graphics memory. As per my experience 1 GB RAM is not enough and we can't access our PC so smoothly and we need at least 2 GB RAM for better access. 2GHz processor is OK but it should be at least dual core processor for better performance. Windows Vista also needs about 15 GB of free disk space to install it, but recommended free space should be at least 20 GB. Windows Vista ultimate cover approx 13 GB of disk space to install it but some lower versions like Vista basic and premiums only take about 8 GB of disk space. For better performance we need at least 30 GB of disk space in our C drive. The recommended size is about 40 GB and more. So for Windows Vista we must have better capacity hard disk drive. There are very large capacity hard disk drives available with reasonable price and this point doesn't matter at all.
              ***
              Now think about Windows XP and its hardware requirements. Maximum 3 GB of free disk space required for installation. 512 MB RAM is more enough of smooth running of XP. 128 MB shared graphics memory is good enough for it. Final point of its processor speed and 1 GHz processor is good for it. If we have some better configurations, then also it runs with similar speeds. These types of configurations are very cheap now a days and every one can afford it.
              ***
              Some Important Points and its Truth

              Windows Vista is available in different versions like Winnows Vista Home Basic. Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Business and Windows Vista Ultimate. There are some differences according to features and prices. Windows Vista has maximum features with higher price but Vista basic has less features and less price. Most important feature that is not available in Vista basic but all other versions have this and it is elegant Windows Aero desktop experience and it includes very beautiful glass-like menu bars, Windows Flip 3D, and Live Thumbnails. This feature is really impressive and has very beautiful visual effect. I really appreciate this feature and it is my favorite feature to keep Vista alive in my PC. Windows flip 3D is not such impressive and it is also not so important or useful as it is only fulfill one feature line. Live thumbnail is a feature for viewing thumbnail preview of opened window in taskbar and it is really very useful to see that what kind of windows is opened and is in task bar. Glass effect in menus is really very impressive and it's looking great.
              ***
              Second important feature of this application is its most powerful security feature with most secure Windows Defender and Windows Firewall. We have experienced in Windows XP with its less powerful firewall and it usually gets crashed with viruses and other security threats. The time when Windows XP has released, was not such kind of as we have now. There were not such matter of viruses and internet was also in its initial stage so that security problems were not so bad. Now we have lots of security problems and there are thousands of new viruses come every day. So Powerful security features are essential now days for operating system. So Windows Vista has very powerful Windows firewall and newly added Windows defender. But I didn't find any advantage of Windows defender ad I can't understand it yet.
              ***
              Now a days we have some powerful internet security applications and they have inbuilt firewall of its own. So we need not to worry about firewall if we have good internet security software installed.
              Next important feature of this operating system is its quick search option in start menu for finding programs and similar kind of search option in windows bar. This two search options are really very useful and much appreciated.
              Some other features which are not such important but I want to mention here is its high definition quality movie making capability with Windows movie maker. This feature will really help you to make a movie of your family album with high quality videos.
              ***
              Other feature is its most improved networking solutions with Easier networking connectivity and it helps us to stay connected with the Network and Sharing Center. This feature is a new in this operating system.
              Overall this is a good operating system with its enhanced features but it is still require large numbers of improvements. Windows Vista has failed to get popularity like Windows XP and now Microsoft is planning or developing its next improved operating system Windows 7.
              Microsoft claim than Windows 7 will have almost all features of Vista and XP with improved compatibility and user friendly features. Windows 7 is expected to be released in early next year and hope that it will fulfill all our requirements.
              So best luck for Windows 7 and wait for new sensation to be reality.
              Thanks for reading and your suggestions are most welcome.

                Advantages

                • Reliability

                Disadvantages

                Go for 21st century's computing.

                AMD Third-Generation Opteron 8354 / 2.2 GHz
                ***
                The competition in computer industry has gone beyond the limit. We need not to worry about these all because we are getting better technology and value for money day by day. Very interesting upgrade is now in processor and random access memory. Two major players in processor category as Intel and AMD have some excellent products as a result of competition.
                ***
                We are now in multicore processing era and there are many products available in this category with excellent features, performance and value for money. I have reviewed earlier some Intel processors with their ground breaking features and now the time for testing AMD's creations.
                Sometime ago when we got first dual core processor, entire world surprised that how two processor can be combined with single processing unit. Now the time has changed and we have 4 cores processor as it can be rated like four different processors with single processing core.
                ***
                Quad core technology is a latest one and we have many fast speed processors in our workstations and desktop PCs from quad core family. Wait for a bit and we will get even more cores in single processor. We can't imagine that what will be the next surprising revolution in processors, but at least we can guess that speed will be faster than what we have now.
                ***
                Coming to this processor as it has latest technology with 4 processing cores. The core speed is mainly considerable point and we always have first look on core speed. It is inevitable also that we need some better speed processor so that core speed should be our main priority in processor as this processor has good speed with 2.2 GHz. If we have a look on latest applications than at least 2 GHz is required for almost all important applications. Windows Vista also recommends at least 2 GHz processor for better performance. This speed is good enough for quad core processor and there are still growing this speed and we also have up to 3 GHz processors also in quad core category.
                ***
                Some other features of this processor should be explained and that is its front side data bus speed with about 1000 MHz and its cache memory with L2 Cache Size (KB) 512 and L3 Cache Size (KB) 2048. If I discuss about its front side data bus speed than it is an average for quad core family. I want to say here that heavy data speed generates more heat and processor can get threshold temperature so early so it is not recommended for hot climatic reasons. This processor consumes 75 W power with its 65 nm technology. So the 1000 MHz bus speed is perfect for this processor.
                ***
                Second interesting point about this processor is its different cache memory with L2 and L3 both. We have seen in Intel processors that they are slightly different in terms of cache memory, with only having L2 cache memory but in large capacity. Here we are getting L2 and L3 both types of memory, slightly better one.
                ***
                If we have a look on some test of this processor with latest applications than there are above average results. It is good enough for almost all regular and latest applications like Google sketch-up, CorelDraw, Photoshop and 3ds max.
                ***
                If you are planning to run heavy graphics applications than also it will be better option with some dedicated memory graphics card.
                So keep in mind that you are some better combination of processor, RAM and graphics memory. Only processor can't provide good performance without having proper RAM and graphics memory. So keep some good combination of these all and enjoy 21st century computing. Recommended.

                  Stylish phone

                  LG KF510
                  ***
                  Mobile market has many variations and it is very difficult to survive in consumer's mind with popular brand. Some of models got huge response from overall market but some got failed. The most impressive models like Nokia N95, Apple's iPhone are still rocking.

                  Now the time is for slim and very affordable phones with almost all important features. So every brand is trying to provide best companion phone in compact body.
                  ***
                  Here we have slightly old model from LG, released in February last year and it is now almost one year old. The phone is still very popular with its beautiful compact sliding design and compact and light body.
                  Most attractive feature of the phone is its slim design with about 11mm thick, and weight is considered as an average with 1bout 90 gm. For me the most impressive factor in design was its compact design with sliding feature. We have seen many other sliding phones and they have very thick design due to double sliding plates. But it is very interesting that this phone has both features in such a compact form.
                  ***
                  I always change my phone but some phones are really so good that I can't leave them. This phone also one of them due to its very interesting and attractive design.
                  Second point of this phone is its features. Features are more or less similar in all specific category phones but it is important to discuss some of the good features and some bad one also for taking a proper decision.
                  There are nothing special with its display size and it has popular 240 x 320 pixels display size with TFT screen and 256K colors support. Next one is its memory support, and there are about 16 MB shared memory for internal data storage for contacts, messages and JAVA applications. Phone also support micro SD card with hot swap technology. I want to say here that due to hot swap technology we are able to remove card during the on position of phone. We need not to worry about data loss as it will remain safe. Without hot swap technology card may lose your data if you remove it in on position.
                  ***
                  As connectivity features there are everything for middle range phone like, GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth and USB.
                  Some interesting features are its 3.2 MP camera with autofocus and inbuilt flash. The picture quality with this camera is really very good with compare to other 3.2MP cameras. Autofocus works well and it takes effective photographs. The one more important feature about this camera is its image stabilization technology and it will definitely help us to take sharp photographs during movements. Overall the camera is really very impressive.
                  As a music consideration, it fills only formalities of this feature with having inbuilt music player and FM radio with average sound quality.
                  Phone should be improved in such category like battery back-up as it has an average back-up battery.
                  Overall this is a really very impressive design with some good features like excellent camera and beautiful compact design. Recommended.

                    Disadvantages

                    think like E8500

                    Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 / 3.16 GHz
                    ***
                    This is my favorite processor and I love to have this in my one of the PC at home due to its great performance and speed. Some processors are really very affordable and trustable with long run capacity and features to provide similar kind of performance as new one. This processor also a kind of processor which can give us reliable performance with its advanced features and speed.
                    ***
                    Core2 duo family from Intel is very popular and most of the desktop PCs and notebooks have this one as first priority. We haven't seen quad core processor in any notebook and core 2 duo processors are most popular with almost all notebooks. But there are slightly differences in notebook processors and desktop processors. We have some low power consuming series processors for notebooks and slightly higher one for desktop PCs as they don't need DC power for long. Usually we run all desktop PCs with AC power so that we need not to worry about power consumption in processors, but it is important factor in such a manners that we also need low power consuming devices in hot climatic reasons. High power consuming devices will generate more heats and they will create uncomfortable working environment. So Intel has good solution for this problem with controlled data bus speed and 45nm technology for low power consuming processors.
                    ***
                    This processor also has similar kind of technology with its 45 nm technology. The most important features of this processor is its great 3.16 GHz of superfast clock speed and 6 MB of L2 cache size. Point is considerable that 3.26 GHz speed is generally considered as very fast speed. Generally we have less than 3 GHz of speed in many other processors. This type of speed provides very fast performance with almost all applications and games.
                    ***
                    Next important point is its superb 6 MB of cache memory. We have seen that many of other dual core processors have about 3 MB OF CACHE MEMORY. But this processor has very good capacity of cache memory for fast performance. Cache memory require for temporary data storage in processor while processing duration and it help fast access with keeping non active data as pending.
                    ***
                    How can we forget front side data bus speed and that is more important for time saving process. This processor has ultrafast 1333 MHz of front side data bus speed and it is a good companion with ddr3 memory (RAM). 1333 MHz of speed is not such a general speed and it can run all latest applications with fast speed and can transfer data with high speed and less time.
                    ***
                    Processor has desired performance and it will never disappoint you in any process. The recommended use of this processor is in latest version of applications like heavy graphics software's, 3ds max, and other animation applications. You need at least quad core processor and DDR3 RAM for heavy process like in Autodesk Maya and 3ds max with good graphics memory. But we can't take this processor so easy as it is not lesser in any aspect with quad core family processors. So think it like quad core processor and have it in core 2 duo price. Recommended.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Best product in budget category

                      Kingston HyperX 2 GB DDR II 1066 MHz
                      ******************************
                      This is a time for 3rd generation technology with DDR3 RAM, but these types of RAMs are bit costly at the present time so have some good speed RAM with DDR2 technology and keep your system running fast.

                      Kingston has some good range of DDR2 RAMs and they are most popular in computer market. I have discussed earlier some of DDR3 RAMs from Kingston with high speed performance. But the most important point is that we need similar kind of processor also for keeping speed fast otherwise no mean of having super fast speed RAM and slow speed processor.

                      If we have processor with front side data bus speed of about 800 MHz (this is generally available in most of the budget dual core processors) and RAM is with DDR3 technology and more than 1500 MHz of speed, than the all speed of RAM's are waste. Processor only supports till 800 MHz of speed with RAM and there are no mean of having more than 800 MHz speed RAM. So be aware of all there facts and have some good combination of processor and RAM.

                      This RAM, Kingston HyperX 2 GB DDR II module has good support speed with almost 1066 MHz and this is a DDR2 RAM. DDR2 technology is most popular now days and almost all notebooks and personal computers have these types of RAM.

                      This RAM is a best companion for dual core and core2 duo processors. RAM has DIMM 240-pin support and this is compatible with almost all desktop motherboards. Second important point about this RAM is its low power consumption with 2.2 V. If any devices consume low power than it will generate less heat and perform well.

                      The taste of this RAM remains with almost all regular applications like Microsoft office 2007, adobe Photoshop, Google sketch-up, 3ds max, CorelDraw etc. The purpose of testing with above applications is to provide compatible result with most popular applications which are mostly available and popular in every part of the world.

                      The excellent performance was with Microsoft office 2007. Office 2007 doesn't require more speed as it can be run with 533 MHz of speed also. But good speed performance require for Photoshop and CorelDraw, as Photoshop CS3 and above and CorelDraw X4 and above. There are no problem with these applications as using 256 MB of dedicated graphics memory and single module of 2 GB Ram. If we need more speed and smooth running performance than we need some good capacity of graphics memory also, alone RAM can't perform well.

                      Overall performance of this RAM is fast with almost all applications except some advanced softwares like Autodesk Maya and 3ds max. If we want some super fast speed with these applications than we need DDR3 technology RAM with similar kind of graphics memory also.
                      Have this RAM as with very cheap price and fast performance for your daily routine job. Recommended.

                        Budget mania.

                        Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200
                        ************************
                        We are now in 21st century and most interesting changes for this period are in computer and mobile phone industries. Life is moving very fast and there is no scope for traditional thinking. So we are getting unexpected technology now days. We have some popular brands in computer technology and they are still getting good response from overall market.
                        ***
                        In this category we have some good dual core processors and they are still very popular with good processing speed and low price. Sometimes ago we got Pentium4 models from Intel and they were long run processors in the line. Celeron series processors are still popular in low budget category.
                        ***
                        Here I am going to discuss about a budget processor from Intel and it is still getting good response with its fast speed performance and low price features. This processor, Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 GHz has some latest features which may be as per your choice, like its new 45nm technology and low poer consumption with about 65 W.
                        ***
                        The new technology with 45 nm is most important feature for this processor as it may be a good choice for hot climatic reasons. Due to this feature, this processor generates very less heat and the problem of computer crash due to high temperature doesn't happen with it.
                        ***
                        Next important features are its fast clock speed with almost 2.5 GHz and front side bus speed of about 800 MHz. One more feature that is important is its 2 MB of L2 cache size.

                        Now have a look on above features and its performance. The 2,5 GHz speed is good enough for any regular applications with Windows Vista operating system of Macintosh Leopard latest version. 2 GHz and more speed processors with multicore processors are good for this purpose.
                        This processor also has more than 2 GHz clock speed and 2 processing cores. The next feature of front side data bus speed also require for high speed data transfer. We are getting here 800 MHz of data speed and this is s still very popular for any processor and RAM. If we have same speed RAM with 800 MHz speed than we will get best performance with this processor.
                        L2 cache performs well to provide smooth running speed with temporary data storage and 2 MB speed is good but not best for multicore processors. But for Windows Vista operating system, atleast 2 MB is necessary.
                        ***
                        Processor is a perfect solution for almost all regular applications and games, for Microsoft office, internet access; Photoshop's all versions and almost all regular games.
                        So have a fun with this for your routine work with high speed performers. Recommended.

                          Best for me in all PCs

                          Lenovo Thinkstation S10 6483
                          ************************
                          Basic Words
                          Have you decided to think like computer? Ohh no computer can't think as fast as our mind can. So it is not a wise decision to compare computers with our mind because the human mind is always more than super computer. We can take a help with computing machine to support our brain exercise to resolve complex matters in daily life.
                          ***
                          So Lenovo has a good companion of your thinking process and here is a latest product with Lenovo Thinkstation S10 6483. This model is available in different configuration like RAM upgradation and processing speed. I am going to discuss my experience and opinion about this product with 3 GHz processor and 2 GB RAM.
                          ***
                          The secrets
                          Speed

                          First of all we have to take a look on processing speed and it is only possible with good preinstalled processor or its upgrade. This PC has good solution of this reason with Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 processor and some models also have Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 processor with excellent clock speed of 3 GHz. So what is a role of 3 GHz in this processor?
                          Lets have a look on some applications. If we use advanced applications with their latest versions like Photoshop CS3, 3ds max 2009, CorelDraw X4, than we need almost more than 3 GHz processor for smooth running. The 2 or more GHz processor is also good but we need excellent dedicated graphics memory for better performance. The main problem occur when we have slow processor and running it with Windows Vista operating system. Vista needs some processing speed and graphics memory as well as RAM. So if we need fast performance with Windows Vista and latest version of applications, than 3 GHz and more processor with multicore technology is highly recommended.
                          ***
                          Role of Data speed
                          Second important point for any processor is its front side data bus speed. Better speed processor will give fast performance in data transfer. This processor has data speed of about 1333 MHz. We have seen than many Pentium 4 and earlier processor had maximum 533 MHz of speed. Now we are also getting superb speed processors but the main problem is its heat generation. Intel has latest 45nm technology in processors so that it generates less heat with compare to previous 90 nm processors. Heat is not a problem in cold climatic reasons but for hot and dry climate it create many problems and system always keep freezing or shutting down due temperature.
                          ***
                          Think about cache memory
                          Cache memory is second important feature for processor and I have experienced that 1 MB and less cache memory processors ahs very slow processing speed but 3 MB and more memory gives very smooth speed. So keep in mind that good cache memory will help for better processing speed. This processor has better cache memory than what we can expect. There is a 6 MB of total L2 cache memory. Keep rocking.
                          ****
                          RAM is here
                          Now think about the role of random access memory means RAM. RAM is a temporary memory and we need it to save data while processing duration. This data will be saved in permanent memory after saving and closing the application. So high speed RAM and high speed performance.

                          Here we have good preinstalled RAM with 2 GB DDR3 SDRAM with excellent speed of 1066 MHz. When I good my first PC in about 6 years ago than I got DDR1 memory with 128 MB of size. The cost was very high than today's 2 GB memory with more than 1000 MHz of speed. So technology got changed very much and we have now entered in DDR3 technology. DDR3 RAM performs very fast than all previous ones. Here we have good combination of processor and RAM with more than thousand MHz of d speed.
                          ***
                          Graphics are ahead
                          Never forget about graphics memory, it is required for almost all heavy applications and without this nothing is possible in graphics works. Here we are getting completely different graphics memory than all other PCs and notebooks. This PC has superb NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600 graphics card with almost 768 MB of great graphics memory. I haven't seen this type of graphics memory in any previous PC. I am a big fan of Quadro series graphics card as they perform suburbs in almost all heavy applications and games.
                          ***
                          This PC is perfect for almost all heavy applications and as per my opinions this will be best choice for applications like 3ds max and Autodesk Maya. Both applications require very heavy graphics memory but not only in capacity like for general gaming purpose. He Quadro graphics cards are perfect for these applications. So have this and enjoy much.

                            Good quality music player with mobile phone

                            Sony Ericsson W302
                            ****************
                            Mobile phones are not a device for calling purpose only, it has changed a lot. Sometime ago we need some good devices for listening music like iPod, for taking pictures like digital still camera. Now these all devices got combined and we can get a little and easily pockatable, light and beautiful solution for our entire requirements like music, mobile call and digital still photography.
                            ***
                            Sony Ericsson has W series phones specially dominated for music lovers. W here indicates that this is a walkman phone and walkman word is slightly old and most popular for music lovers as music devices from Sony.

                            Let's have a look on new walkman series phone from Sony Ericsson, W302. Phone is completely dominated for budget music phone and it is beautifully designed with attractive slim and light body. The most attractive feature of this phone is its 10.5mm thick design. Display size is something different than usual size and it is 176x220 pixels. We know that maximum available games and JAVA applications for mobile phones are available in popular 240 x 320 pixel size. So here we have slightly different display screen than usual.
                            ***
                            The next considerable point is its memory size. Sony Ericsson walkman series phones have good internal memory and they also support external card slot. So here is a 20 MB shared memory for JAVA applications, contacts, Messages etc. The good point of memory size is its pre-included 512MB card for enjoying favorite music.
                            ***
                            For me, 512 MB card is more enough as I keep only my favorite collection and this is not more than 500 MB. But some peoples may have large collection in their favorite list so they can put some large capacity card also.
                            Phone is completely dominated for budget music lovers and there is a good quality of sound with included earphone. Phone has inbuilt handsfree also but it doesn't support stereo sound in built in handsfree so we have to listen best quality sound with earphone only. The quality of sound is excellent with mega bass setting in equalizer.

                            FM radio is become compulsory in almost all phones and specially in music phones. So here also we have good quality FM phone with stereo and RDS support.
                            ***
                            For connectivity purpose we have almost all medium level features like GPRS, EDGE, Bluetooth and USB.
                            Camera is not so special as it is an average with 2 MP. Picture quality is not so good but it is only for filling the requirement.
                            The phone is special for two reasons, one is its beautiful slim and attractive design and other one is its good sound quality. So over all this phone is good for budget music lovers and also has adequate features. S a phone is has good battery life for calling purpose with almost 5 hours, and as a music player it provide similar back-up but it will reduce in video playback by 50%.
                            Go for it and have a fun.

                              21st century's technology

                              Kingston HyperX 2 GB DDR3 1800 MHz
                              ******************************
                              Technology! What is technology? We can't imagine that what we will get tomorrow as technology? Every day we are getting something new and exciting products in every field.

                              If we have a look in sometime 5 years ago when personal computers entered in every person's life. The RAM size at that time was usually 64 MB and 128 MB. The price of these RAMs was almost five times to today's 1 GB and 2 GB! I haven't mention the speed of these 64 MB and 128 MB, I don't have proper idea but it was in KHz. Now we are getting ultra fast speed memory with record breaking speed.
                              ***
                              Let's have a look on this RAM from Kingston, Kingston HyperX 2 GB DDR3 RAM with rated speed of almost 1800 MHz. Some other features of this RAM is it supports 64 bit computing and have DDR3 technology. The rated voltage of this RAM is about 1.9 V. It has DIMM 240-pin support.

                              Now if we consider our daily computing life than there are two choices, one is for our daily work and business use and other one is for entertainment and gaming use. So for what purpose this RAM will be best companion? Of-course for both of them.
                              I love to upgrade my PC time to time for better technology and latest experience. This RAM gives a superfast performance with almost every application. I am not a fond of computer games so that I only use few games to test my PCs performance like need for speed carbon, and other EA games like FIFA and cricket. There is no question of any problem occur with these games.
                              ***
                              Superb performance is got in graphics applications like CorelDraw, Photoshop and Google sketch up. I had no problem with these applications and only single slot 2 GB RAM. But we will face some problem with 3ds max and it need slightly higher capacity with proper graphics memory.
                              ***
                              This RAM is available with pair of 2x 2GB and 1x2GB. So it will be better choice if we have 2x2GB Ram and I think this capacity is more enough for any personal computing. RAM alone can't give us perfect performance as we need some other high speed upgrade also like latest multicore processor with high clock speed and excellent dedicated memory.
                              ***
                              The DDR3 technology is recommended for quad core processor and due to its 1800 MHz speed support, we also need such a processor that can support up to 1800 MHz for front side bus speed. So we have such a processor in quad core family but and it will be perfect combination with quad core.
                              ***
                              Over all this is a best available RAM in DDR3 family with excellent 1800 MHz of speed and 2GB of capacity.
                              There is no end of technology and we will get even better than this in future but we need to live in present and enjoy every moment of life with available resources. Go for it and have fun with latest computing experience.
                              Highly recommended.

                                Intel Core 2 Duo E8600
                                ******************
                                We have seen that some of the most popular processors from Intel in dual core category were Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 with almost 2.66 GHz of core speed and Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 with approx 3 GHz core speed. Both processors got huge response from all over the world and they are still in most popular category with continuous demands.
                                ***
                                We haven't seen speed in terms of 4 GHz or more, all processors have below 4 GHz speed and hope that this limit will break soon.
                                Intel is ahead with its fast speed processors in multicore technology. Cor2 duo processors in cost effective and it have more demands in personal computing market.
                                ***
                                So have a look on new product from Intel in core2 duo family with superfast performance and speed. Intel Core 2 Duo E8600, after huge success of Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, this processor is ready to rock the market.

                                Best available processor in core2 duo family and have superb clock speed with 3.33 GHz. In my last review about quad core processor with 3 GHz of clock speed and 1333 MHz of front side data bus speed. This processor also has similar features except 4 cores as this has only 2 cores. The front side bus speed is more important for data transfer and high speed performance. You will never feel any problem with data transfer speed as there is a good capacity speed available.
                                ***
                                Next point is its L2 cache size. We have an idea that about one year ago there was only 2 MB or less cache size was available and now this limit is broken with surprisingly up to 16 MB!. Of -course technology is growing day by day and we are getting best day by day.
                                ***
                                This processor has excellent 6 MB of L2 cache size for temporary data storage and smooth performance. Intel processors have been changed with modern technology and requirement o that 45 nm technology is more effective in terms of power consumption and less heat generation. So feel free and enjoy your work with more comfort and speed.
                                ***
                                Processor also supports 64 bit technology for next generation computing. This technology is not adapted in overall market as 32 Bit is still most popular and almost all applications are easily available in this category. But we may face some problem with 64 bit technology as some applications are not available in this category.
                                ***
                                Tested with almost all important applications like Photoshop CS3( my most favorite application), CorelDraw X4 and most important 3ds max. I always try to taste performance of any computing machine with 3ds max as it is more important to get graphics performance of any processor.
                                ***
                                There are no problems with any of these applications, but we have to put good graphics card for getting better performance in heavy applications. Processor or RAM alone can't perform fast without having good graphics memory, so go for better dedicated graphics memory and enjoy high speed performance for personal computing.
                                Over all this is a best available processor in dual core category with super fast speed and cache memory.
                                Highly recommended.

                                  Kingston HyperX 2 GB DDR3
                                  **********************
                                  Ram is so important as well as processor for fast performance and smooth running of the system. If we have best combination of RAM and processor than we can get best performance with our PC. The DDR2 technology is slightly old and out dated but it is still in use with maximum PCs and notebooks. DDR1 RAM is almost out dated and out of the market also. Now we have latest super fast RAM with DDR3 technology.
                                  ***
                                  We have an example of superb speed and performance of DDR3 technology with this RAM, Kingston HyperX 2 GB DDR3 with almost 1625 MHz of total clock speed. Kingston has major products in memory category with large varieties of RAM, Flash memories, Memory cards and portable large capacity memory storage disk drives.
                                  ***
                                  The attractive product from Kingston is now its DDR3 technology Ram and now I am going to discuss this module with its performance and features.
                                  Most attractive feature if this RAM is its 1625 MHz of speed support. We have seen than most of the DDR2 RAM has an average 667 or 800 MHz of speed. The higher speed means fast performance with any application. DDR3 technology has some ground breaking performance with ultra fast speed support. We have this technology in graphics memory also and with this technology we can get smooth result in any heavy graphics application or gaming.
                                  ***
                                  So having 1625 MHz of speed I was able to run any application without facing any trouble with the combination of quad core processor, 3 GHz and 133 Mhz of total clock speed.

                                  There is no such multicore processor available with 1600 or more click speed so that we don't have best combination with this RAM in terms of same size of clock speed processors. But you can't imagine that what performance this RAM can give with quad core processor having clock speed of 1333 Mhz.
                                  ***
                                  Tested with almost every application like Photoshop CS3, CorelDraw X4, and most importantly 3ds max. It gives smooth performance with all these application and there are no chances of PC hang or application crash.
                                  This module of RAM is available in 2 GB capacity and we can put two module of this RAM for getting better environment in heavy graphics work. As the Price of this Ram is slightly higher due to its latest technology and fast performance, so that it is more suitable for workstations for business use. We can have this as for gaming purpose for thrilling experience but it will take some more money from your pocket for better lifestyle.

                                  Over all this is a best product from Kingston with latest technology and superfast speed. Recommended for heavy graphics applications and 3rd generations gaming experience.
