Best Laptop Christmas 2018: HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop

adults electronics Laptop2HP Pavilion 15.6-Inch Laptop (6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10)

This HP Pavilion series laptop is a laptops with good specs for a decent price. The specs: 15.6-Inch screen, latest 6th Gen Skylake, Intel Core i5-6200U Processor 3M Cache, up to 2.80 GHz 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Windows 10, 15.6-inch Full HD WLED-backlit IPS Display (1920×1080), HDMI, B&O PLAY with 2 speakers. For a price around $535 at the time of writing a 15.6 inch 6th gen Intel i5 laptop with these specs (especially FULL HD) is a very very good deal!

Asus 15.6-Inch Laptop (2.1 GHz Core i3-5010U,4 GB RAM,500 GB)

This Asus 15.6 inch laptop is one of the most popular laptop this Christmas. This is very logical because the specs are very good when looking at the price: around $350 at the time of writing. For that price you get: the Intel i3-5010U 2.1 GHz processor, 4 Gb RAM and a 15.6 inch FULL HD screen. A very good laptop for everyday use at home, for a student or as a laptop for your work. It does not have the extreme quality of the Apple MacBooks but has a lot to offer for about 1/5 the of the price :) that is why I put this laptop on the #2 place in the ranking.

Gadget Gifts For Adults: Drones

Best Budget Drones Under $100

My recommendations this Christmas for small budget drones as gift under $100 are the the Hubsan 4 Channel Quadcopter, the UDI 6 Axis Gyro Quadcopter and the Dromida Omnius Quadcopter. For a price under $100 you can expect a small drone which is easy to fly but doesn’t have the power/features/maneuverability that the more expensive drones have. Of the three drones shown below only the UDI Quadcopter has a HD camera for photo and video but this also means the price is higher than the two without a camera. All three are very good affordable drones to start with, to learn how to fly a drone or just to try out drone flying for fun. Never let kids fly a drone without supervision and first check out the regulations for drone flying in your area.

Tech Gifts For Adults: Weather Stations

A weather station makes a great Christmas gift!

Best Weather Staions Under $100

The best weather station I could find under $100 is the AcuRite 00622 Pro Color Weather Station with Wind Speed, Temperature and Humidity.

Includes: 3-in-1 wireless weather sensor accurately measures the temperature, humidity and wind speed, color display with adjustable dimmer; electric-powered with optional battery backup, history chart displaying temperature, wind speed and barometric pressure trends over last 12 hours and many more for around $100

Best Weather Stations around $150

For the best weather station around $150 range I recommend the Oregon Scientific WMR86 Backyard Pro Wireless Weather Station WMR86. Some of the specs include: weather forecast (sunny, partly cloudy, cloudy, rainy, snowy), display of Indoor and outdoor temperature and humidity, wind speed and direction, barometric reading with bar graph, rainfall reading with bar graph.

It has a integrated wind sensor tower for easy set up and atomic time, so you always have the exact time and never have to adjust for Daylight Saving Time. It also shows the moon phase.

An other very good option for around $170 (at the time of writing) is the AcuRite Pro Wireless color weather station. It has a beautyful color display and integrated rain, wind, temp and humidity meter. This wireless weather station streams real-time data including the moon phase, indoor comfort level, “feels like”” temperature and more. Highly recommended especially when looking at the low price for this much quality!

Top Intel i5 Laptops 2018

Jan 2018. Best Intel Core i5 Laptops for 2018. The Intel i5 is one of the best selling cpu’s in laptops. On this site we review good, affordable Intel i5 Apple and Windows Laptops for family, college, gaming and work/business use. laptops today have a sleek design, are lightweight and have some serious processing power with the Intel i5 processor. The laptop brands discussed below are: Dell, Asus, Apple, Toshiba and HP.

When buying a new Intel i5 laptop there are several factors to take into account: price (a laptop with better specs is more expensive), processor (older i5-4250 or the newest i5-6200u Skylake processor makes a big difference in performance and price), iMac or Windows, graphics card or not, design. Which laptop is best for you depends on your wishes and what you are going to use your new laptop for (casual use, gaming, laptop for family, student, business).

(Disclosure: all product links on this site are amazon.com affiliate links and the ads are Google Adsense, see privacy policy )

What Specs Do You Want?

An Intel i5 laptop is a midrange laptop that can be used as a family computer, as a laptop for college/school, as a laptop for “on the road”, for light/medium gaming and medium video editing/ graphical programs. It is more than fast enough for normal day-to-day internet, social media, writing reports/documents/presentations, watching a movie etc. The Intel i5 processor has two cores which makes it suitable for multitasking. After deciding for an i5 processor in your laptop there are more choices to make, the specs you want your new laptop to have.

Amount Of RAM Memory

RAM Memory is short for Random Aces Memory. This is the memory that the i5 processor directly uses to process data. The amount of RAM is therefore very important for its performance. If you want your laptop to boot fast and react fast the available amount of RAM (more internal memory is better, today laptops should have at least 4 GB, 8 GB or more is preferable).

Type Of Storage: HDD or SSD

The type of harddisk makes a lot of difference for speed. SSD is much faster than regular HDD and is increasingly affordable but if you use the storage mainly for movies/photo’s etc then the bigger amount of GB’s for the money that a HDD provides can be usefull.

Videocard

When running programs or games that use a lot of graphic processing the quality of the video-card is important. The i5 is actually an Integrated CPU-GPU processor. This means that the i5 has integrated graphics processing and for normal use you don’t need a separate graphics card. A separate Graphics card is only necessary when you want to play heavy graphics demanding games on higher settings or use the laptop for video editing. Then you would better buy an Intel i7 Laptop which is more suitable for that purpose.

The MacBook Pro shown below has a 2560 x 1600 screen, 512 Gb (very energy efficient) flash drive and four Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports . Those specs make this laptop extremely fast. If you are an Apple user, nothing can compare to the quality of a MacBook or a MacBook Air. If you are not an Apple user the price and the problematic data transfers with windows and Linux devices could be an obstacle.

Best 11.6 inch laptop Netbook: Dell Chromebook 11 11.6-inch

2017. Best Netbooks/ Chromebooks for 2017. Netbooks and Chromebooks are the best! A good netbook is easy to take with you, lightweight, affordable, has a sleek design and is fast. I bought a new netbook for when I travel. Long battery life and weight are most important for me. A good netbook is able to perform all basic functions like surfing the net (it is not called a netbook for nothing), all social networking, some basic text editing, watch a movie. 11 inch laptops have better specs but are not as cheap as a netbook.

Remember when looking for a new netbook: Netbooks ARE NOT full blown laptops and the specs are according to the price: basic. Netbooks are lightweight, have impressive battery life and are easy to take with you. The 11 inch laptop gives you the same portability, are although they cost a bit more, still very affordable but the cpu, motherboard and screen are generally speaking better quality.

The main competitor is the tablet, but I choose my netbook or 11 inch laptop over a tablet to take with me on the road in the USA anytime because it has a normal keyboard, and when I have closed it it is safe. I would never be at ease with a tablet in my bag in fear of breaking the expensive glass screen.

So, When you want to buy a new netbook or 11 inch laptop there are several things to consider like: price, weight, processor, Chromebook or not, Apple or Windows etc.

#2 11 inch Laptop/ Netbook 2017: Samsung Chromebook 2 16 Gb SSD

chromebook2

The Samsung Chromebook 2 is the #2 best netbook for 2015/2016 because it is a real netbook. The bootup is incredibly fast, mere seconds, due to 4Gb of RAM and a 16 Gb SSD. It is also a real netbook because you work as with all Chromebooks in the Google cloud and have to be online to do that. The advantage of that is that all the resources of the netbook are used for being fast and are not ‘wasted’ on running the programs. Other advantages: automatic updates, full protection against viruses and mall-ware, your work is automatically saved. It has no moving parts, is very thin and has very long battery life, up to 9 hours. Read more about Chromebooks here.

Best SSD Solid State Drives/ M.2 SSDs Of 2017

 

 

 

best ssd2017. Best Solid State Drives (ssd) and M.2 SSDs for 2017! Solid State Drives are the best! Why? Because they are fast. Very fast. And fortunately the price has dropped dramatically over the last years while the capacity of data storage has greatly improved. Now a good SSD or M.2 SSD with 250 GB is surprisingly affordable. 

There are a few ‘big’ players on the SSD market: Samsung, Crusial, Kingston, Scandisk and Toshiba. With Samsung having the biggest market share. Samsung and Toshiba produce their own controllers and flash memory. The other manufacturers only produce the flash memory in their own factories.  

On this website I have selected the 3 best Solid State Drives today.

(Disclosure: all product links on this site are Amazon.com associate links and all adds are Adsense, see privacy/cookie policy)


 


SSD vs HDD

The main advantage of SSD above HDD is the speed. SSD`s are incredibly fast compared to HHD`s but there was the problem that Solid State Drives did not have much GB`s of storage and they were expensive.  But no more ! The rapid development of the ssd has now overcome these problems. SSD`s are now available from 16 GB to 960GB and the price has dropped.

The SSD is this fast because it has no moving parts, a HDD does. This makes the SSD noise free, light weight and durable. The flash memory in the SSD delivers the data directly via the SATA 3 connector to the CPU. SSD`s are about 10 times faster than a 7200 RPM HDD.

Also the development of Chromebooks has made an impact. In these low budget laptops a small 16 GB ssd is build in because the bulk of the programs are stored on-line and not on the internal memory anymore. Because of the solid state drive chromebooks are very very fast. So, for the near future I see the HDD fading out slowly and the SSD taking its rightful place as cheap, fast and most used core memory in netbooks, laptops and desktops. 


 

#1 ) Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III

The best and most popular SSD on the market today is without doubt the Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series. At around $130 for the 250 GB version this is not the cheapest SSD but it is the best for a good price with proven quality.

 

best ssd solid state drive2Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive (Also available in 120 GB, 500 GB and 1 TB

Here is the link for the more expensive Samsung 850 Pro series SSD (costs around $60 more but better specs)


 

#2) Crucial MX100 512GB SATA 2.5″ 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive

This SSD from Crucial is the cheaper (around $115 for 256 GB version) option but it has good specs and performance.  The 512 GB version that I recommend here has more than enough GB memory for a normal laptop or desktop. Crusial can make the SSD cheaper by using a new production method which makes better use of the flash memory. With this method the SSD needs less chip surface to reach the required capacity.

best ssd solid state drive3Crucial MX100 256GB SATA 2.5″ 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal Solid State Drive (also available in 128 GB and 512 GB)

 


 

#3) Kingston Digital 240GB SSDNow V300 SATA 3 2.5 (7mm height) with Adapter Solid State Drive

The Kingston SSD is the cheapest (around $ 90 for the 240 GB version) in this top 3 list but for this money it has good speed and specs. Dont expect the same performance as the Samsung and the Crusial but when you want to replace your HDD with a cheap and decent SSD This Kingston SSD will do the trick. You will be amazed by the performance boost.

Apple is one of the most popular tablet manufacturers. The quality of the tablets is outstanding and unrivaled. Apple products are usually a bit more expensive than other brands, but real Apple users wont have anything else than the uncompromising quality of Apple. Check out the Apple iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 3, the latest additions. I have not selected the iPad air as the best iPad because it is too expensive for my taste. With the 4th generation iPads you get a lot of tablet for a much cheaper price (about $250-$300 less).

The Fire HD and Fire HDX are the hugely popular tablets made by Amazon. Now that it is in color with wifi: perfect for many people and not too expensive. A very good (and though out) concept.
