Searching For the Best Online Laptop Price Deal

Laptop Price DealWith all the wheeling and dealing that seems to take place on the internet at all times of the day, it can sometimes get confusing just trying to find your own deal. Finding the best price on your new laptop is most likely your highest priority at this point, but there are other important factors as well.

In this article I will discuss some of the best ways to ensure that you get the ultimate price on your new beauty, as well as a few other tidbits that shouldn’t be left out.

At first you can check out prices on famous and reliable website such as Walmart, eBay, Amazon, or the authorized distributor and vendors. Head on over to these websites and see what kinds of prices are listed for your specific notebook. Make sure that the price listed is for a brand new machine. Alternatively you can look at auctions that are about to end. This method will usually give you a little better indication of what your specific laptop.

Then you can go to a couple price comparison sites such as shopping.com or pricegrabber.com. What these sites do is list a bunch of merchants that are selling the specific product that you are looking for. What is great about it is that a price is listed by each merchant, as well as customer reviews of the store (merchant).

A lot of these price comparison sites will even list the shipping price, and then calculate your total cost for whatever you want… It’s a win-win situation for you!

So now you are going to want to search for your specific notebook on a few price comparison sites. When the merchant listings come up, look for prices that are better than the ones you got from various website. You will probably want to skip merchants with a bad rating, or at the most, go in and see why they are rated poorly.

One more thing — Look at the shipping price… Sometimes you can get free shipping, or shipping at a much better rate than on the certain website.

Hopefully you have found an even better deal at one of the price comparison sites online. If you want, you can even go to some of the big name computer retailers and look at their prices, (even though many of them are listed on the price comparison sites). Sometimes you can find clearances though that will beat any of the prices you have found.

One other last point — Reliability is very important, especially with a purchase like this. For the eBay auctions you are going to want to look at the seller’s feedback rating, and on the price comparison sites you are going to want to look at the merchant’s customer ratings.

If you take the time to properly use the various resources that are available on the internet, you will find that getting a great deal on a new laptop is a lot easier than one might think.


Laptop Batteries Types

Laptop Batteries TypesThroughout the years there have been many technologies involved with notebooks, and laptop batteries are no different. There are actually three distinct notebook battery types on the market today. Knowing the difference between them will help you decide on exactly what to get when the time comes for a purchase.

In this article I will discuss the three different laptop battery types, as well as some of the advantages each one carries.

Nickel Cadmium – NiCd batteries were actually the first rechargeable laptop batteries ever. Manufactures loved them because their cost was relatively low and they had a high output. You won’t find Nickel Cadmium batteries being used anymore, due to them being heavier and not as efficient as the newer laptop batteries.

Nickel Metal Hydride – NiMH batteries can still be found all over the place — particularly for older model laptops. The rechargeable NiMH laptop battery was a big step up for notebook technology mostly in part because they were more reliable than the NiCd batteries, and they had an even higher output. The NiMH battery was also cheaper to produce, and safer to use.

The only issue with NiMH batteries is that they can have a memory effect. Basically, if you don’t fully discharge the battery, it can remember this and leave you with a less than perfect battery output.

Lithium Ion – LiON batteries are now used in most new laptops. Unlike the NiMH battery, LiON laptop batteries have no memory effect. LiON batteries are also lighter than both NiCd and NiMH notebook batteries. Both of these advantages equal out to the Lithium Ion battery being the most popular and most expensive among the various notebook power sources.

You are probably wondering which type of battery to get. Getting a Lithium Ion battery would be the best solution, and if you have the money that is what I recommend. If you cannot afford a LiON battery or your notebook is not compatible with one, then getting a NiMH battery is the next best thing.


Free Wi-Fi Access for Tourist in Japan

Before this time, tourists who come to visit the big cities in Japan have experiencing a difficulty to get an access to free Wi-Fi in public places. This is quite dilematic since Japan is known as a country with high technological advances. In response to these difficulties, the Japan Government have tried to change this condition.

The Japan Government is cooperating with Japan’s largest telecommunications company, NTT, to provide free Wi-Fi in public places, especially the areas that are often visited by foreign tourists. Therefore the tourists can gain access only with passport documents.

When travelers arrive at an airport in Japan, they could show a passport and register to get a Wi-Fi card. With the card, travelers can get access to 45,000 Wi-Fi network that is spread in eastern Japan. In the mean time the areas that are covered by the NTT network are limited to few cities such as Tokyo, Hakone, Mount Fuji, Yokohama, Nagano, Nikko, Kusatsu, Tohoku, Hokkaido and Fukushima.

To facilitate the search for the location of the hotspot point, travelers can download NAVITIME application on their iOS or Android device, and registering to receive ID and password. NAVITIME will show the location of the hotspot in the mode of augmented reality (AR) or display it in a view like Google Street View.

The free Wi-Fi access is only granted by NTT to one user only and it is valid for 14 days (or 336 hours), enough for those who just want to travel and sightseeing in Japan, and not for those who want to settle down and live for a long period of time in Japan.

In addition, the Japanese government is trying to boost more buildings in Japan fitted with free Wi-Fi. The program had began tested earlier this year and lasted until September 2014.
