Note: This answer is written with the assumption that the CPUs being compared consist of commercially-available Intel, AMD, and ARM-based SoCs from approximately 2006 to 2015. Any set of comparison measurements will be invalid given a wide enough scope; I wanted to provide a very specific and "tangible" answer here while also covering the two most ...

Tablets don't need fans because their CPUs (processors) have a different architecture that is more power efficient and doesn't generate as much waste heat. This is also why they are able to get 10 hours of run-time on a relatively small battery. The other side of this, though, is that the tablet processor is no where near as powerful as a laptop ...

Hm.. This is a good question. The answer is NO, Samsung Galaxy is most likely not as powerful as your Desktop PC. And this would be obvious if you would run a comprehensive CPU benchmark test. I will try to put together the answer the way I see it. Other, more experienced members will probably add more details and value later. First of all, due to the ...

Go to Services (just windows search it) and see what the status is. Set it to manual or disabled. If it already is disabled then I don't know!

There are three heat generation points in a laptop: Processor Chipset Graphics Power regulators 1-3 of the above subsystems work at very high speeds. Because these subsystems are clocked so high, the power requirement is very high. High speed and hi power requirements generate a lot of heat in Si. Also, these subsystems use PCIe to communicate and PCIe ...

Actually MHz rating has little relevance between different manufacturers processors. It only has some relevance to CPU's in exactly the same family. While phone processors are becoming pretty fast and might well beat the pants off those old Pentium 4's, you still cant compare them to even a low end core i3. You should be aware that there are quite a ...

If UAC is disabled on the target computer then passing a fake Secure Attention Sequence (SAS) keystroke (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) to the system (ie: from an OSK or a remote-control program like VNC) will fail. If you need lowered UAC interference, then you can turn it down to one notch above Off and that should allow the SAS to be passed. Similar question is here: ...

Click the Start button. Type "Tablet PC Input Panel" and click the first autosuggested link. If the keyboard pops up instead of the Options window at this point, click Tools, then Options. Uncheck all three boxes under "Choose where to show the Input Panel icons and tab" Click OK.

Windows 7 I have found the solution: Open Local Group Policy Editor. It is quite hidden - search for it in Windows Start menu or in Control panel - use the search box as I have not found the shortcut for it. Alternatively you can run gpedit from command line (not from Run in Start menu). Navigate to User Configuration - Administrative Templates - Windows ...

On Windows PCs you go in to Bamboo Preferences then click Details in the Tracking options on the right. Next, select Monitor in the Screen Area section. After that just change the number in the window to pick the monitor you want your pen to stay on.

Wacom tablets let you map the area on the tablet to a part of the screen. This works perfectly - even on my triple monitor display. Frankly, any other tablet is really a joke in comparison to the awesome power of a Wacom Intuos.

For archiving your existing notebooks I suggest either a digital camera or a scanner. The Camera is a much faster way to archive dead-tree media as it takes the image at once. A basic camera setup is using a tripod or other mount, and affixing your notebook in place. If necessary, use two small weights to keep the pages you're currently on flat. Then just ...

allquixotic's answer gives you the practical side of things very well. I think it'd also be useful to have a short bit on the specifics of a 'clock' is and why all clocks are not created equal. And unless I err, this should hold true across all microprocessors real or theoretical. 5Ghz means 5 billion cycles or clocks per second. But what happens in a cycle ...

Ctrl-Alt-Del is a secure keyboard combination that cannot be passed through the On-Screen Keyboard (AFAIK). You can read more here at Wikipedia. Check the tablet quick start guide or operating manual for a Windows Security button. This acts as an equivalent for the Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination. The tablet does not come with a keyboard, right?

The pens often don't do much, in some cases they are just plastic. It is the tablett which does the work there are various ways that they can tell where they are being tapped. Quoting from wikipedia Passive tablets Passive tablets, most notably those by Wacom, make use of electromagnetic induction technology, where the horizontal and vertical wires of the ...

According to this and many other forums is appears that you can remove the battery and replace it, as well as memory pretty easily. You can remove and replace the hard drive of that particular laptop, however you will be limited to the drive selection that you can replace it with: Hard Drive - The T91MT comes stock with a 32gig SSD ... The T91MT ...

What worked for me: I have a laptop, and often plug into my desktop monitor. I use the bamboo to take notes while watching lectures. Open bamboo preferences Select "Pen" tab While in "Pen Mode" select the "Mapping" button Pen Mode Details comes up. Select "Monitor" bullet. On the counter to the right, select which monitor you would like bamboo to use. ...

I have a Wacom Bamboo Pen & Touch and I can verify that my pen has an eraser tip. As far as I know the Bamboo Pen model does not.

I have the Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) and I can confirm that the pen lacks an eraser. However, the pen has two buttons on the side, and I have programmed one of them to function as an eraser. That way, instead of flipping the pen over, I can just hold the button and erase. The Bamboo also lacks the customizable buttons on the side of the tablet, which ...

There's a new option. Wacom recenly (June 2013) released a new driver: Version 6.3.6-w3 The new driver seems to completely disable the pen rings and works in both Windows 7 and Windows 8 - I've tried it on 3 Windows 8 machine and 2 Windows 7 machines and can confirm its behavior on Intuos 4 and Intuos 5 tablets. To use the new Driver: Install the Driver ...

It depends on the hardware of the laptop, what sort of software you're running, whether you're using the computer actively or if it's just sitting on the desk, what sort of power management is configured, the environment you'll be using the laptop in, and how old the battery is, just to name a few factors. There is no way to accurately answer this question. ...

Disable pointer shadow within the cursor menu. I was having the same issue and this seemed to fix the artifact on the second window.

I've seen this suddenly occur on rotated monitors. Setting the rotation to normal and then setting it back to 90 degrees seems to resolve it.

You can use the more powerful DC adapter (19v @2.15A = 40 watts) for both, since the Netbook which requires less juice will only draw what it needs from the more powerful one. This of course depends on if the plug is not only the same size, but has the same positive/negative configuration. Think of this like using a Universal DC adapter which puts out a ...

This is because since honeycomb Google have decided to use the MTP protocol to handle PC to Tablet file transfers as it allows them to obfuscate the internal file system on the device and fix one of the most glaring of the early problems with Android, namely that the space for applications and user data was fixed and one could be unable to install an ...

802.11n is 600 Mbit/s SD class 10 is 10 MB/s (80 Mbit/s) However the former is a theoretical maximum (assuming 4 streams, 4 aerials). 74 mbit/s is more realistic with an ideal signal (no interference, no other nearby Wifi devices). The latter is sustained minimum write speed. Here's a graph from ...
