An Overview of All-in-one Computers

Sony all-in-one PC.jpgWhile we can all appreciate the power and flexibility offered when you build a system component by component, there’s something about all-in-one options that’s very appealing. This applies to home theatre, where a single soundbar with one connection to the TV and a power cord can replace five or more individual speakers, a receiver and a mess of wires, and the same concept holds true with PCs. An all-in-one PC from the likes of Sony, Acer, HP or Samsung packs all the components —monitor, CPU and storage— in a single, space-saving and stylish package. Say good-bye to clutter, cords and desktop sprawl without going to a laptop and giving up the big screen or compromising on performance.

Chromebook preview.jpgThere’s been considerable excitement over Google’s move to bring its popular Chromebooks to Canada, including the announcement that Best Buy Canada will be carrying the Samsung Chromebook XE303C12. However, with the product line being so new to this country and Chromebooks in general just starting to take off in the market, there is some confusion about why someone would choose a Chromebook over other options like a regular PC laptop. This comparison between three of the primary classes of portable computers is intended to help you understand when a Chromebook might make a better choice than buying another laptop or an Ultrabook.

What’s the best way to share or transfer content from my smartphone to other devices?

by Blogger on ‎11-18-2011 01:44 PM - last edited on ‎07-18-2012 12:52 PM by Best Buy Best Buy

transfer-iphone-3g-mac.jpgThis is exactly what everyone wants to be doing! Why should your content only be in once place? You should be able to watch it where ever you want whenever you want! However, moving your data between devices can be tricky, especially if they are not all made by the same manufacturer. If you happen to have all Apple Products (iPhone, Mac, iPad and Apple TV) no problem! You’re first step should be to upgrade to iOS 5.0 and turn on iCloud on all your mobile devices.  Then you’ll want to turn on home sharing on all of your devices on your network and barring any unforeseen problems you’re good to share.  If you download something for your phone (say the latest song from your favorite artist) it will show up on your iPad and computer.  And if you want to watch it on your TV you can push it there using AirPlay and your AppleTV.

The Slim, Sexy Samsung 9 Series

Samsung 9 Series 13.3When it comes to laptops, size does matter. Usually when we're picking out a new one, we'll often compromise size for functionality. And by this, I mean that if we want a hot new little side-dish like a netbook, we'll go in knowing that it will have a less powerful processor, less battery life, and less storage. In plain English, it means that the computer may start to slow down when we run too many programs, we may have to buy a second battery for longer road trips, and we won't be able to store as much of our multi-media as we'd like. It's a sacrifice many are willing to make in order to avoid lugging around a 5lb+ mammoth in between business lunches, parent meetings, or school projects.
