Christmas Laptop Buying Guide

Which type of laptop should you choose this Christmas?

Christmas is now less than a month away, and for many this is the perfect excuse to indulge in a nice new piece of tech either for yourself or, if you’re feeling charitable, as a gift for someone special. Laptops are a popular Christmas purchase, these portable PCs always proving themselves endlessly useful in the modern world whether it be for work or play. However, gone are the days when a laptop was just a laptop: today you can get anything from a high performance gaming laptop that runs better than a good proportion of its desktop brethren to a compact netbook, perfectly optimised for long spells of browsing.

So what are your options, and how do you select the right laptop for Santa to nonchalantly place among the other presents under the Christmas tree?

Philips Hue LED light bulb controlled by your Smartphone or Tablet

Philips have just unveiled an LED light-bulb that is web enabled; allowing users to control the light via their Smartphone or Tablet.

Not only can you control the lights whilst at home but the app gives you the ability to control the lights whilst you are away form home as well. A great burglar deterrent I must add.

How does it all work? The kit comes with a Smart bridge that will connect to your WiFi router. The bridge will then communicate with the LED bulb itself which will then receive demands from the app. The bulb is compatible with your existing fittings.

The app is really where all the fun starts, you can control the light with an array of features including matching the colour of the light to a colour on any photo (up to 16 million different colours)

Philips HueThe system includes an alarm that will adjust the light accordingly at what ever time you demand; a far more natural way to rise than that of a fog horn sounding in the early hours. Different settings can be saved and logged on your device allowing you to simply click one button to allow the setting to be applied for that particular part of the day without too much fuss.

Could you see yourself using technology like this in your own home?

ZTE V9A gets special offer price–Saving of £24

The Google Nexus 7 may be a very cost effective product at £199 for the 16GB model, but one of the biggest frustrations for many is the fact it is a WiFi model only, not 3G.

So if we said an Android 3G tablet for less than £145 inclusive of VAT, most must agree that is pretty good.

So in all honesty it is not quite up to the spec of the Nexus but it is still Android 2.3 and it has WiFi, 3G, a rear facing camera, a 1.4GHz processor and 4GB of internal storage as well as a microSD memory card slot.

Despite this, less than £145 is a very good price for all of this. 

So if you have been in the market for a tablet with 3G but don’t want to pay the earth, then the ZTE V9A with £24 off the price, brining down to less than £145 has to be worth a look.

Who needs a laptop?

For a brief moment a couple of weeks ago I considered buying a new laptop so that I could work anywhere. My choices were wither an Ultrabook or a MacBook Air. I weighed up the options and considered the pricing and ended up spending £39.99.

Yes, I did not buy a laptop of course and instead chose a hardware keyboard for my tablet. You see, my needs when mobile are limited to writing, research and more writing. When I have a project to complete, I no longer expect to complete 100% of the task on my tablet. Images can be captured and converted on my desktop and so will the finished project be uploaded, spell checked and analysed for completeness. Some things are best done on a desktop and the majority of the tasks I would have previously used a laptop for can now be undertaken on a laptop.

Those tasks include email, web, writing and a few other things. Tasks that the vast majority of normal people use a laptop for. When I consider what I would use a laptop for and the fact that the desktop would still be used for many tasks even if I owned a laptop, a tablet still does all of that and with the benefit of longer battery life and extra portability. Plus instant-on, cheaper apps and so on and on.

I don’t need a laptop anymore and cannot see a time in the future where one would fit in between my desktop and tablet.

The anti-internet mobile device

I had a strange idea the other day and the more I thought about it, the less strange it became. In these days of connected mobile devices which require wireless connectivity to do almost everything, it is all too easy to become complacent about privacy and the amount of personal data we share with online services.

Chances are that you have gigabytes of data stored online including emails, calendar entries, files, photos and media, and lord knows what else. It’s all there swimming in the virtual world and available for anyone who has the know-how and nasty motivations to do something with it. I am sounding paranoid of course because the well-known online services are incredibly secure and the benefits far outweigh the risks. For every three apps you use on a smartphone or tablet, it is likely that two require connectivity to work properly.
