Many of us are so used to working on a computer desktop that when it comes time to purchase a new computer, we don’t consider other options. Today, computer notebooks – which were once called laptops – offer a number of advantages over a computer desktop. Here are just five reasons why you should take a second look at notebooks.
You might be used to pulling up a chair to your computer, but it makes much more sense to pull your computer up to your chair. Laptops can certainly be used at your desk, but you also have the option of bringing them to the spot where you’re most comfortable. Maybe you’d like to surf the Web in the evening out in the living room or catch up on your favorite blogs before bedtime. Notebooks with wireless connectivity can travel with you throughout your home, so you can check your email or do your Internet shopping anywhere.

Ultrabook’s segment is probably the most popular in the CES 2012 event, and Dell did not miss this opportunity to present its new XPS 13. Aware about the struggle for supremacy with Asus, Lenovo, Acer and Toshiba will be a tricky battle, Dell have tried to come up with some unusual things on the XPS 13 model, even though in terms of technical configuration has no major surprises.
As the name suggests, the Dell XPS 13 is a 13.3-inches ultrabook with a 12″ screen, which provides Gorilla Glass protection and a resolution of 1366×768 pixels – which has already become standard for this laptop segment.
Acer introduced to the public the world’s thinnest ultrabook. The company launched at CES 2012 the new Aspire ultrabook called the S5. With a maximum thickness of 15 mm, the device is currently the thinnest ultrabook. But this is not the only aspect that impresses.
Acer is proud that the Aspire S5 comes out of standby mode in just 1.5 seconds. It can do this using Acer Instant On technology. The company states that users can get out of the sleep mode using their smartphones.
The new device also features Acer Aspire Always Connect, a service that updates the mail box and messages received through various social networks while the device is in standby mode – a feature not to neglect.
