If the speedy evolution of computers is anything to go by, you can never say what new gadget will be out in the market tomorrow. Who would have ever thought the very first gigantic computers would give way to the mobile models of today not to mention the various new features and ease of  using them being widely accepted by each and everyone across the world.

When the desktop was first introduced it was considered a marvel and although some people looked at it with a great deal of suspicion, it wasn’t long before the majority  wanted to learn how to operate it and suddenly the rush was on for everyone to buy their own desktop for personal use. With the PC gaining widespread acceptance the size of the computer started to shrink while its power increased and very soon these almost brainy machines were taking over the world.

Those early day computers looked ungainly with their bulky CRT monitors, and huge towers, that were all part of a package which also consisted of a keyboard and a mouse Although the personal computer has not yet been dumped as obsolete, very few people can be seen using them with more and more new users turning their sights to the Laptop and Notebook, mostly because of the ease of carrying them everywhere and also because no one wanted to be identified as an “old nerd” who used a pre-historic desktop computer.

It was quite sometime after the desktop that the Laptop came on the scene and everyone was going bananas over its futuristic design, its size and its portability calling it one of the greatest inventions ever. It was considered “cool” to hug a sleek looking laptop to your bosom and the obvious glances of envy from onlookers when it was opened in public was enough to keep the owner basking in its glory for days.

The Notebook followed close on its heels and apart from its cute size and not having a built in CD Rom, there was hardly any difference between the two and being light of weight and smaller than a Laptop, it was considered an ultra portable device that was ideal for travel. Next it was the turn of the Netbook and everyone was going gaga over it because it was the perfect computer for web browsing and light work while being relatively inexpensive and had a very long battery life. Its future however seems to be very uncertain as a result of its ridiculously low 1GB RAM and crammed keyboard being rejected by most consumers looking for something more wholesome.

It is in this backdrop that one should look at the All in One PC  which has multiple components within one unit and can be simply   plugged into a power source.  Its main disadvantage however is that it cannot be upgraded or customized since its internal hardware is located at the rare of the visual display unit and permanently attached to the motherboard.

Finally we come to the Mobile PC which continues to flourish with Apple being far ahead of its closest competitor in the field. The Mobile PC better known as the Tablet PC is also a laptop computer but with more functions and a movable touch screen.  Whenever the touch screen is not available a digital pen can be used to write on the screen where handwriting automatically converts to text. If nothing else, they’re smart and neat and the ideal computer for those on the go all the time.

When you plan on buying a new computer, the most important decision you will have to make is how good your Processor is for the work you have in mind. You will have to consider its speed, multitasking abilities and its performance as well as your budget when deciding on the Processor because no matter what else you add to your computer,   unless your Central Processing Unit can offer you quality service it will not be of much use to you.

Whether you buy a Laptop   or a Netbook, first check what kind of processor it has. The two most popular processors in the market are Intel and AMD with Intel leading the market at present. The tasks you intend performing will also have an impact on the CPU and if they involve lots of 3D graphics and a large cache to diminish memory load, your best option is an Intel Core i7 while the AMD   Phenom Line   is said to be best among their processors.

Buying a computer today is not as uncomplicated as it used to be earlier because of the wide variety available. The choices are many and you get to choose from desktops, laptops, Notebooks, Netbooks and iTablets which can be very confusing for the uninitiated.  If you prefer a Laptop computer or the smaller, lighter Netbook Computer you might be thinking of their portability features.  The latter has more battery life but less processing power even though its more than adequate for simple tasks such as word processing,  and web browsing. Being small in size the Netbook computer is the ultimate device for portability.

The Laptop Computer which is also known as the Notebook is also portable but   bigger than the Netbook  while having more processing power similar to that of the Desktop. It has its own screen and built in keyboard and track pad which replaces the mouse.   The modern laptop computer also has exciting new features such Blue Ray disc players, and surround sound among others provided you’re prepared to dole out a considerable amount of money.

The other component of importance is the Motherboard which provides a platform for the smaller components in a computer to be connected to each other. Most new computers have the motherboard as well as RAM and the Graphics Card built into the machine making it possible for manufacturers to design smaller motherboards. The earlier ones had to be large in size due to the presence of multiple ports to connect peripheral devices apart from the larger size of the CPU as well as the RAM, Video card and Graphics Card.

The vast improvement in RAM has also made a considerable difference to the overall performance of the computer because unless there is quality RAM the CPU will not provide a smooth performance no matter how fast it is. The new type of motherboard is capable of supporting up to 8 GB RAM which enables the processor to work really fast. Similarly, a Graphics Card with high capacity provides high quality imaging. But computers   that have built in Graphics do not have more than 8 megabytes which makes it imperative for those working with graphics to use an external Graphics card through a slot in the motherboard.
