Usually the first few weeks or even months into a new product or technology, there are constant problems and bugs. So avoid this testing period. In essence, any early adopters of technology amount to little more than just beta testers of the product. So wait until the kinks have been ironed out, and the prices drop, before rushing in!
There are a lot of hardware components that run together to make your PC work. Over time, these components can age and begin to work improperly. Unfortunately, these problems are hard to fix because they aren’t always consistent. Moreover, the components inside that tower can overheat and begin to fail. If your RAM (random access memory) or Central Processing unit (CPU) gets too hot, they will fail and your computer will crash.
That is an example of integration marketing at its finest! That was the thing that took Microsoft from being this tiny, unknown company to the biggest giant in the industry. It took Bill Gates from obscurity to being the richest man in the world!
Since Netbooks are not designed for use as a laptop replacement, they have lower speed processors (CPU’s). The CPU chips used for Netbooks not only have slower CPU speeds, the internal CPU bus speeds are slower also. And they are single core processors, instead of the 2 or 4 core processors typically found on new laptops today. All of these differences add up to a slower computing experience.
Another factor that could put Microsoft in jeopardy of losing the number one spot is the release of iOS 5 this fall. Before iOS 5, an iPad user needed to have a Windows or Mac based computer to use an iPad, making it a secondary device. With the release of iOS 5, that will no longer be necessary. With the iPads compact design, ability to use 3G network in some locations and moderate price, people may be buying these over traditional desktop and laptop computers.
Longer answer: They’ve already started working on it. If by “they” you mean “Microsoft and the computer hardware companies they partner with, like Dell and HP.” Case in point: The HP Slate. Looks a lot like an Apple iPad, doesn’t it?
A CD writer and DVD-ROM drive is usually sold as a combination. You can do it to rip your favorite music files from your CDs, write new files on a CD, and play DVD movies. If you are building a gaming computer, you will need a CD drive at the very least. You will need the CD drive to install and play your PC game Cds.
These usually fix the programming errors, but they can also cause new conflicts within the programming. It’s not always perfect, but for some, it answers the “Why do computers crash?” question. Read update bulletins as they become available to decide which updates you should or shouldn’t install on your machine.
