Tech Support?

Time to exit, stage left…

I have had an incredible time writing these blogs over the last couple of years. While I have never actually managed to get a good schedule down for writing them on a consistent basis, I always enjoyed getting some time set aside to do so. So it is with a heavy heart that I inform the regular readers of the TechTalk blog that as of now, there will be no longer be any updates to it for the foreseeable future. We will leave the page up though, for anyone who still has lingering questions about any of the “How-To” articles we have written, or just want to watch one of our videos again. So thank you all very much for just reading my (and my colleagues’) articles, it has been a pleasure.

To finish off Netbook Week, I am taking a look at the HP 1120NR Mini. This netbook is part of HP’s consumer netbook line.

Let’s take a look at the system specs before I begin.

For the third day of Netbook Week, I have decided to take a look at HP’s business line of netbooks, the HP 2133-FT268. Constructed from a sturdy aluminum shell, this makes this netbook much more durable and light weight than other netbooks on the market. And let’s face it, many of us like the overall look of an aluminum case…why else would Apple have used it for so long? Now let’s look at the specs.

Continuing with our look at netbooks this week, the next one I am taking a look at is the Dell Inspiron Mini 9. Just like the Acer Aspire One, there are several different models of the Mini 9 (check out http://www.dell.com/ucdavis to “build your own” with your academic discount) and the one that the TechHub sells is the 8GB SSD Alpine White version. And just like the Acer Aspire One, let’s take a look at the overall system specs of this Dell Mini 9.

To kick off ”Netbook Week” at the UC Davis TechTalk blog, I have decided first take a look at the Acer Aspire One. There are several different models of the Aspire One, and the one the TechHub carries is the Blue 160GB version for $329. While I still prefer my MacBook, I am a HUGE fan of this tiny machine. We have come a long ways, and we now have a fully functioning computer in a size you can easily throw in a purse or backpack.
