32 bit or 64 bit. The realism

So you want to buy a PC, or build one. You have a choice of an Operating system. Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit or 64 bit, whats the difference.

Well, the difference is how the PC can handle it. To run a 64 bit version, your CPU and GPU must be compatible. 64 bit machines are highly prefered by PC Gamers, Video Editors, Music Editors, Photography or Graphic Designers and Web Designers. The difference isnt as simple to notice when you look at it.

Think of a motor way, being 32 bits wide, there is more bottlenecks going to occur on your processor, thus slowing down the system even for a matter of seconds. Being 64 bits wide, these bottlenecks occur less. Meaning when your processor does slow down, you hardly relise it, because of the bottle neck being a matter of Miliseconds.

You need all the Hardware to be sutible to Support the 64 bit version, which means a Processor like an AMD Phenom II x4 or higher, or an Intel i5.

If you are thinking Random Access Memory, a 32 bit version can only recognize 4 GB, but is only able to use 3.5 GB, where if you use a 64 bit version, of say, Windows 7 Home Premium, and you want 8GB of RAM, then you can use that 8 GB of RAM. Windows 7 64 bit can use upto 128 GB, not like you will need that amount of RAM for another 25 Years atleast.

So be smart, and come ask us about the System you want to run. We can help!

Asus X501U Laptop

With all laptop manafacturers comes a delight, with some come a dissappointment. Introducing to the stage, the Asus X501U, This is a lightweight in the ring, weighing at 2kg, this is one of the lightest Laptops around to boast a 15.6 inch LCD. The processing unit, intregrated to the motherboard, is the AMD C60, at a staggering, you wont guess it, but 1 GHz. Which in the eyes of all PC gamers, it’s as fast as being stuck out side in the winter, and catching a cold. On top of that, this laptop tries to boast about the amount of Random Access Memory inside it. 2 GB of RAM, maximum is 4 GB.  The is no DVD Drive inside the system.

Introducing the operating system, you got it, the latest one from Microsoft, Windows 8.
Windows 8 is designed with Mobile Technology in mind, meaning it is designed to be able to be portable. It is a good choice for a laptop like this, but it still has so many tweaks to it, and bugs still out inside Applications made for this system on the Windows Store. Windows 8 is ideal to have, and only should be used on Tablet Devices and Touch Screen Devices.

All I can say is Asus has rushed to put a laptop out on the market to try and grab the attention from Client’s who would rather wait it out until after the new year when more Tablet PCs become available. Again, the Price is £280 or more, not worth the time.

Mac OSX – it’s the Apple way!

Mac OSX may sound like a scottish clan but it’s what apple named its operating system by incorporating X, the roman numeral for ten. before the 10.0 versions i believe it was just name the mac os and not IV as is 9 in numerals.

We at logic are busy training and developing our skills in something thats totally alien to us; apple mac’s. With the knowledge of PC repairs you may think it’s an easy enough thing to learn but you would be wrong. 75% of what you know goes straight out the window. It’s like swapping your car with an alien spaceship and then trying to reverse engineer it to find out exactly how everything works together.

We are professionals and won’t be beaten, through this extensive training that we are currently undertaking we should be mac experts within the next week or so after we master networking with windows based computers and a few other fun subjects.

One complete, we will finally be repairing mac’s! Watch this space!

windows 8 not to be cracked

The new verification system for Windows 8 – OA 3.0 is incurring  additional costs for ODMs and which would eventually result in  ODM’s charging a heavy manufacturing charges to the Brand vendors for the same.

For the OA 3.0, Microsoft plans to pre-install the Windows 8 operating system into PC’s BIOS and will have consumers key-in the authorization key to activate the software through an Internet connection and will completely abandon its previous method of using a COA label,according to Digitimes sources Report.

This new method would require additional time for Windows 8 installation as compared to the previous method and would cost more since microsoft will charge fees as per number of installations and as the technicians would also require to undergo training.

Microsoft is taking these measures keeping in mind the crackers agenda towards cracking new upcoming operating systems,as the history of previous Windows releases suggests it was prone to the crackers attacks bypassing the Microsoft’s OEM activation certificates.

why is windows so expensive

Why is it that windows costs so much to buy when you can get linux operating systems for nothing. it will cost anyone on average of £100 for windows software and you can’t even get the coding so you can edit it to do what you want it to do unlike some of the open sources software that is out there at least you can get the coding to edit it as well and it also costs you nothing for the software.

The drawback of buying a netbook over a laptop or a pc

Everyone today is always wanting things to be smaller which has brought me to this topic why buy a netbook over a laptop or a desktop pc well everyone is wanting this to be smaller so it doesn’t take up so much space.
well they maybe nice and small and take up less room but you have to mind this as well netbooks don’t have cd drives so you can’t install just buy a game or a bit of software to install as it won’t work without a external cd drive and also if any of the parts become faulty on the netbook they can be more expensive to replace and longer to get to the part as there is more to strip away to get to one part. laptops can be expensive as well but think about what extra things you will have to buy when you buy a netbook over a laptop or a desktop.
