Apple Portables: Tips for maximizing your battery charge

Products Affected

Portable Computers

Your notebook battery life depends on your computer’s configuration and how you are using the computer. Here are some settings and steps you can take to get the most from of your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air laptop battery.

About the battery status menu

The battery status menu shows you how much charge your battery has and whether it is currently charging. This menu is at the right side of the menu bar:

HT1446  battery menu 001 en Maximizing your Apple laptop battery charge tips

The battery status menu updates frequently and changes depending on your screen brightness and system work load.

For example, if you are using a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010) to edit a text document and the menu bar reports 8 hours of battery life, then you close the text document and begin playing a DVD movie, the time left in the menu bar will decrease. If you immediately quit DVD player and resume editing a text document, the time left in the menu bar display should return to a higher number due to the reduced power usage by the computer.

If your Apple portable computer is running Mac OS X v10.6.x or later, you can hold the Option key and click the battery status menu to display your battery’s condition, as in the image below.

HT1446 OS10 6 x battery menu condition 001 en Maximizing your Apple laptop battery charge tips

Your battery’s condition may help you determine if the battery needs a replacement:

  •  If the condition is “Normal”, the battery is functioning normally.
  •  If the condition is “Replace Soon”, it is still working but may be starting to lose its ability to hold a charge.
  •  If the condition is “Replace Now” or “Service Battery”, the battery likely needs to be replaced.  If you plan to visit an Apple Retail store, you should make a reservation at the Genius Bar using http://www.apple.com/retail/geniusbar/ (available in some countries only).Your one-year warranty includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. You can extend your replacement coverage for a defective battery to three years from the date of your notebook purchase with the AppleCare Protection Plan. However, the AppleCare Protection Plan for notebook computers does not cover laptop batteries that have stopped working or are exhibiting diminished capacity except when it is the result of a manufacturing defect.

Set your screen brightness to the lowest comfortable level

Compared to any other setting on your computer, your screen brightness can have the greatest impact on battery life.
  Press the F1 key to dim the screen until the brightness is as low as possible and the screen is still comfortable to view.  For example, on a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) computer, you can increase your laptop battery life up to three hours by changing your screen brightness from 100% to the middle setting, as in this image:

HT1446 portables brightness key display 001 mul Maximizing your Apple laptop battery charge tips

Optimize your battery settings in Energy Saver preferences

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Energy Saver.

Options in the Energy Saver preference pane will vary depending on your Apple portable and operating system version. Some examples of items that can be enabled to save power include:

  • Putting the hard disk to sleep when possible.
  • Slightly dim the display when using this power source. (Choose “Battery” or “Power Adapter“.)
  • Automatically reduce brightness before display goes to sleep.
  • Setting the computer and display sleep sliders to induce sleep of the display or computer more quickly.
  • Choosing the Better Battery Life option if available.
  • Choosing Automatic Graphic Switching if available.

Some of these settings will put the hard disk to sleep whenever possible and reduce the computer’s microprocessor or graphics performance to maximize its battery life. If you are using processor-intensive applications or graphic-intensive applications, you may wish to change these settings so that performance is maximized at the expense of battery life.

Graphics performance
Your graphics performance settings can affect your battery runtime.

The MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) and MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2010) include a feature in the Energy Saver System Preferences pane called “Automatic graphics switching” for adjusting graphics performance.  This feature is enabled by default to allow your computer to automatically switch to the best graphics system for the applications currently running on your computer.  Using this option may also maximize battery life.

Tip: Running graphics intensive applications such as 3D games, Aperture, iMovie, iPhoto, and so on consumes more power. Quitting these applications will allow your computer to switch to the energy efficient graphics processor, which can give you better battery life.

The MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008), MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2009), and later include a feature in the Energy Saver System Preferences pane for adjusting graphics performance. You can select “Better battery life” or “Higher performance”.

  • Select “Better battery life” for situations when you are not using graphic-intensive applications or when use of the MagSafe adapter is limited.
  • Select “Higher performance” while playing games or carrying out other tasks which involve heavy graphics processing.

By default, MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2008) and later computers use the Better battery life option.

Turn off unused features and technologies

Just as you would turn off the lights in an unoccupied room, turning off unused features and technologies can help maximize your battery life, too. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Eject CDs and DVDs you’re no longer using. Sometimes the optical drive spins to read CDs or DVDs that are in the drive. This consumes a small amount of power.
  • Disconnect peripherals when you’re not using them. Connected peripherals—such as printers and digital cameras—can draw power from your battery even when you’re not using them.
  • Shut down any runaway applications.
  • Quit any applications that are running but not in use.

If you’re not in a location where you need to use AirPort or Bluetooth, you can turn them off to save power.

To turn off AirPort from the menu bar:

  1. From the menu bar, click the AirPort icon HT1446%20 %20airport Maximizing your Apple laptop battery charge tips.
  2. From the drop-down menu, choose Turn AirPort Off.

To turn off Bluetooth from the menu bar:

  1. From the menu bar, click the Bluetooth icon HT1446%20 %20bluetooth Maximizing your Apple laptop battery charge tips.
  2. From the drop-down menu, choose Turn Bluetooth Off.

You can also turn off Bluetooth or Airport from System Preferences:

  1. From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
  2. From the View menu, choose Bluetooth or Network to open the appropriate System Preference pane.

About Apple laptop battery life claims

Published battery life is based on a light duty test that involves wirelessly browsing various websites and editing text in a word processing document with display brightness set to the middle setting.

The more intensive the usage of a computer, the faster the battery will drain. For example, while a MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2010) used as described above can get up to 9 Hours of battery life, the same MacBook Pro computer continuously playing DVD movies with the display set to full brightness will drain the battery more quickly.

New wireless hard drive for iPad now available

seagate goflex satellite wi fi hard drive 300x167 New wireless hard drive for iPad now availableYou can get it drivin’. You can get it flyin’. You can get it loungin’ in a hotel … Matter o’ fact, I got it now. Movies streaming from a wireless hard drive.

A new wireless hard drive from Seagate is set to revolutionise the way travellers store and share movies, photos and info while they’re on the move.

The GoFlex Satellite hard drive is much like a standard USB hard drive, except that it has an inbuilt battery that lasts for five hours between charges, and high speed Wi-Fi built in.

As a result, anything a traveller has loaded on to the hard drive is available to their laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Android-based smartphone.

seagate wireless hard drive 150x150 New wireless hard drive for iPad now available

The Wi-Fi built in to the hard drive is the fastest available — the “N” type — which Seagate says will allow up to three iPads to stream a movie at once from the hard drive.

(On the flip-side, it’s no more than three — Seagate is limiting the maximum number of devices that can connect to the hard drive to three at any one time — a precautionary measure to ensure good performance for each user.)

Laptop users can access files on the hard drive directly on their computers without an app — it comes up in My Computer or the Mac OS X “shared devices” list as a networked hard drive.

It also comes with a compact A/C wall charger, as well as a car charger for use on the road. (Nice that Seagate is not going down the path of providing nothing but the USB cord for charging, as Apple has done with iPods nowadays.)

HP 485041-003 battery – Brand New 4400mAh Only AU $60.85

Toshiba portege m500 battery – Brand New 4400mAh Only AU $60.31

Dell studio xps 1647 battery – Brand New 4400mAh Only AU $72.05

It comes with a three year warranty, too — longer than most bits of tech, and especially good for travellers who might be subjecting the drive to a bit of rough and tumble.

The capacity of the hard drive is 500GB, which should be enough for 300 movies at 720P HD resolution.

Seagate has made a special app for iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch which provides a menu system for accessing stuff stored on the hard drive. You can already download it from the iTunes App Store though the drive itself won’t be available until July.

The one big downside of the drive is that because it creates its own Wi-Fi network (which isn’t connected to anything except the hard drive), any laptop or iPad connected to it can’t access the internet via Wi-Fi.

To get on the net, you have to disconnect from the hard drive’s Wi-Fi network and reconnect to another Wi-Fi hotspot, or a 3G network.

Seagate says it is planning to fix this with a software update, making it possible for the GoFlex Satellite hard drive to act as a Wi-Fi extender for an existing Wi-Fi network such as one of the compact travel routers that many travellers user to set up a Wi-Fi network in their hotel room or one of the many MiFi type 3G/Wi-Fi modems.

New Android Smartphone HTC sensation reviews

Alongside the Samsung Galaxy S2, the HTC Sensation has been laid down as the benchmark for Android success. On paper, this is an absolute stunner, chock-full of the very latest tech and the best software available. But how does it stand up to rigorous testing? Read our review now to find out.

First impressions

htc sensation 520x300x24 fill New Android Smartphone HTC sensation reviews

To hold the HTC Sensation is to realise just how far the Taiwanese mobile maker has come in just a few short years. The build feels, well, sensational. Its rounded back means it sits easily in the hand, especially important considering the vast 4.3-inch screen sitting on top.

Ultimately though, this takes its cues from HTC’s other Android devices, with the same three-tone rear as the Desire S, the same soft keys down below and the wide, tapered earpiece up top.

That’s not a criticism, more that HTC clearly prefers evolving the look of its phones rather than going in for extreme design overhauls. Add in new HTC Sense software, Full HD video and an ace camera, and you’re looking at a real winner. If you’ve already got a HTC phone, you’ll love this.

8/10

Design

htc sensation back 520x300x24 fill New Android Smartphone HTC sensation reviews

As mentioned above, the curved rear makes this phone a delight to handle, whether tapping out texts in portrait mode, or watching video and browsing web pages in landscape. In comparison to its key Android rival, the Galaxy S2, it feels more considered.

The latter is neat, but lacks design flourishes, while the Sensation’s edge-to-edge glass, well-placed and obvious soft keys and HTC’s standard battery cover make this a better bet.

That said, this does once again show that Android phone makers are still not quite up to the standards of Apple and Jony Ive. The iPhone 4’s sharp looks still can’t be beaten, but HTC certainly comes close with the Sensation.

8/10

Features

The Sensation’s key features are all about tweaking and amping-up the Android experience. The 1.2 GHz processor means things move at lightning fast pace, whether that means flipping from app to app, or just scrolling through web pages. 1080p HD video recording is very slick, with images looking beautifully defined.

As ever, with mobile phones and pocket camcorders, the sound isn’t quite up to snuff. That’s an issue if you’re making a lengthy masterpiece, but not so bad if you’re making quick clips to load up on YouTube. The on board editing smarts aren’t as good as those on the Galaxy S2, however. It’s simply a case of trimming footage before uploading it, rather than being able to cut and move shots. This can be done by snagging a third-party editor from Android Market, but is a shame considering video is at the front and centre of this device.

Dell latitude d640 battery on sales, brand new 4400mAh Only AU $62.91

The eight megapixel stills camera is a real winner, however. With dual LED flash, it’s great for taking snaps for social networks and works as an ample compact replacement on nights out, working well in low light. The Instant Capture feature also means you don’t end up missing a shot while the camera tries to catch up with you. It’s a major breakthrough when it comes to camera phones.

8/10

Software

 New Android Smartphone HTC sensation reviews

Android 2.3’s skills are very much in evidence on the Sensation, with personal hotspot and beefed up keyboard smarts. But it’s HTC Sense 3.0 that steals the show. The active lock screen now lets you dive directly into the camera, email, SMS or phone functions without having to unlock the phone fully. The web browser has been given a makeover too, with multi window access. In practice, this is great, giving a slick approach to the web unseen on other Android devices.

8/10

Ease of use

HTC Sense 3.0 makes the Sensation one of the breeziest phones to use on the market. Issues could arise if this affects the upgrade path of the underlying Android software, but for now the custom skin makes everything tick along brilliantly. The UI is a doddle to understand and there’s no sluggishness thanks to the 1.2GHz processor. The Sensation is truly stunning.

9/10

Specifications

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread with HTC Sense 3.0
  • 4.3 inch, 540 x 960 capacitive touchscreen
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording
  • 3.5mm jack
  • Wi-Fi, HSDPA, 1GB storage and microSD expansion

Overall: 9/10

HTC planning one something unique tablet

htc flyer HTC planning one something unique tablet

HTC is planning a tablet — and it claims to have a real trick up its sleeve to challenge the likes of the iPad, Asus Transformer Prime and Google Nexus 7.

HTC told PC Advisor that a tablet is definitely on the way, and that it will have “something unique to offer”.

HTC’s only entry into the tablet game so far has been the HTC Flyer, pictured above, one of the earliest 7-inch tablets. Despite the name, the Flyer never took off. But with the success of the Amazon Kindle Fire in the US and the coming of the Nexus 7, compact 7-inch tablets are much hotter now than they were then — could HTC be looking at building another dinky slate?

The fact the latest version of Android has arrived works in HTC’s favour. The Flyer used Gingerbread, an older version of Google’s Android software that wasn’t designed for the larger screen of a tablet. But version 4.1 Jelly Bean works across phones and slates. Arriving this month on the Nexus 7, Jelly Bean is here in good time to make an appearance on a new HTC device.

At least the Flyer had a decent tablet interface, in the form of a tweaked version of HTC Sense, the interface for HTC phones.

But most importantly, what’s the unique feature set to be? The Flyer was unusual at the time for including a stylus. That’s no longer unique, however: the Samsung Galaxy Note comes with an S-Pen stylus, and even Apple has worked on souping-up the humble pointer into a fancy digital pen.

The market-leading iPad provides the tablet template, and in order to stand out, many other tablets have had to come up with their own gimmicks. The Sony Tablet P folds in half, the Microsoft Surface has a kickstand, the Transformer Prime docks with a keyboard, and the BlackBerry PlayBook… er… makes an excellent doorstop.

I’m interested to see what HTC comes up with. The Flyer was a false start, but HTC makes great phones — like the excellent One X and Sensation XE — so an Android tablet could be just the ticket.

Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Make no mistake: the iPad is a great device for what it is. But here at Top10, we are trained by ninja monks to look past Steve Jobs’ reality distortion field and recognise a better product when we see it. The HP TouchPad, which runs on the same webOS platform as the ill-fated Palm Pre, looks the part and may finally give what is doubtless a fantastic OS its due. Here are ten reasons why.

1. Faster, smarter

hp touchpad snapdragon processor 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

The TouchPad is the first device to use Qualcomm’s latest, snappiest Snapdragon processor yet – the APQ8060. This comes paired with an Adreno 220 GPU and 1GB of RAM – four times that of the iPad – to deliver the most powerful multitasking tablet yet, with unmatched 3D graphics processing for gaming and buttery smooth video playback in HD. The iPad can’t touch this.

2. UI to die for

hp touchpad ui and multitasking 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

webOS has a user interface that makes Honeycomb look like a bad metaphor for Windows 95 and makes iOS feel a been-there-done-that. Not only does it ooze elegance, it scales beautifully on the TouchPad’s massive screen. Take the virtual keyboard, for example, which is resizable in small, medium and large to cater for even those who grew up near a nuclear plant. The iPad, meanwhile, only comes in extra large iPod Touch.

3. Front-facing camera

hp touchpad video calling 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Unlike some devices, the TouchPad doesn’t cut corners with obvious features just so HP can fleece you for your roubles with another slightly updated version of its tablet a year later. No, that’s Apple’s job. A front-facing camera with video calling, is it so much to ask? HP, says no.

4. No multimedia apartheid

hp touchpad kindle and flash 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Apple may treat Flash like a redheaded stepchild, but the rest of the world knows better. Flash is ubiquitous and the dominant multimedia platform on the web. While we certainly have high hopes for the wondrous HTML5, we can’t fathom why you’d keep Flash out in the meantime. HP TouchPad supports Flash AND HTML5. Who says the two can’t co-exist?

5. It talks to your phone

Not only does the TouchPad automatically sync data with the Pre 3 (that would be HP’s upcoming, all-improved threequel to the Palm Pre), meaning you’re never too far from all your important data, it even receives calls and messages right on the device.

Why get up from your comfy sofa when you can answer your call and receive messages on the TouchPad? Did we mention it takes video calls too?

6. Just Type

Just Type takes the concept of universal search and gives you something better. Want to see if there’s any new mail from your chum? Just Type. Want to tweet how great your day has been? No need to launch the Twitter app. Just Type. I’m sure you can see where this is going.

If this were a feature in the iPad, it would be hailed the second coming. With webOS, innovation is not a feature, it’s just there for you to enjoy.

7. Sharing is caring

hp touchpad touch to share 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Speaking of innovation, and we do not use the word lightly, the TouchPad also features what HP calls ‘Touch-to-share’.

Suppose you’re browsing a website on your TouchPad and need to go out but can’t take the tablet with you. No worries. Simply touch your Pre 3 on the TouchPad and it will automatically load up the page on the handset. And you can do the same with documents, pictures, anything the Pre 3 can handle. Touch the iPhone 4 anywhere and it might as well cough and die.

8. Look mom, no wires!

hp touchpad touchstone wireless charging dock 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Like the Pre, the TouchPad has its own wireless charging dock, the TouchStone. And by ‘wireless’ we mean no connecting bits to the tablet itself. Just place it on the dock and it will start charging, even when it’s inside its case. And while it charges, it will go into Exhibition Mode, which can display anything to your liking, be it a slideshow of your family photos, agenda of the day or your social network updates.

9. Wireless Printing

hp touchpad wireless printing 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

You don’t become the world’s largest technology company without selling a few printers along the way. And HP has sold millions, no wait, tens of millions – all of which will be compatible out of the box with the TouchPad.

10. ‘True multitasking’

hp touchpad multitasking 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

This is not just some marketing jargon HP keeps throwing around. It’s actually true. There really is no mobile OS out there that does multitasking better than webOS. No one even comes close.

The ever-mesmerising ‘cards’ metaphor in webOS gives you an actual view of the apps you’re running, not just a set of icons of apps in limbo. Open an app related to one you were looking at before and it will automatically get ‘stacked’ with that app. If you need to, you can always relocate it to another stack or give it its own space. Switching between apps is simply a matter of flicking through the cards or stacks of cards and tapping the one you want to open. And once you’re done, just flick it upwards to throw it off the screen. That simple.

HP’s product manager Sachin Kansal sums it up best: “in webOS, multitasking was not an afterthought”. We couldn’t agree more.

Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

With so many wireless iOS networking apps for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch available, there’s very little reason to connect any of these devices to iTunes, except to update the software. Besides, importing and exporting photos using iTunes has never been one of the best features of Apple‘s mobile device process. Let me introduce you to 5 useful apps for importing and exporting photos to and from your iOS device(s).

1. DropBox

634408901472223022 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

First off, if you’re an iOS device user, you should definitely have a file sharing DropBox account and app. Dropbox is one of the best ways to sync files between computers and mobile devices, because all your files can be accessed, over Wi-Fi and 3g, via your online account. The latest version of DropBox now allows bulk upload of photos and videos to your account. With the Dropbox installed on your Mac, it’s really easy to drop image content into a folder and then download it onto your iOS device, and vise versa. Another benefit of having Dropbox is that you can connect to your account from within many of the leading wireless file sharing apps, such as they ones I’m describing in this article.

2. PhotoSync

634408901750197109 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

What I like best about PhotoSync is that it allows you to selectively choose photos and movie files that you want to sync between your iPhone and iPad, and any computers on your Wi-Fi network, or with a BlueTooth connection. You can even directly import photos from your iOS into your iPhoto and Aperture libraries. PhotoSync also includes a free Mac client for exporting images from your computer to your iOS device(s). And like many photo syncing devices, you can use PhotoSync to transfer files to your Dropbox and Flickr account.

3. RemoteSnap

634408902156923668 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

RemoteSnap almost instantly transfers your images directly to your Mac or PC over Wi-Fi—as you snap them on your iPhone, or select existing images from your iPhone Camera or Photo Library. To use RemoteSnap, you will need to download app to your iOS device, and then install the free “RemoteSnap Server” client on your Mac or PC. The setup is very easy. With RemoteSnap’s instant transfer feature, you could set up a Hazel automation to automatically open and display images as they are sent via RemoteSnap, which means others can view your images as you take them.

If you would rather not waste time selecting photos in your iPhone Camera Roll to upload to Dropbox, download a free copy of Picbox, which automatically copies entire Camera Roll of photos and/or videos to your Dropbox account with one single tap. On top of that, Picbox keeps track of which images it has already uploaded to your account. It does not erase your original images on your Camera Roll, it simply copies them to your account.

5. CameraSync

As you may have noticed, each of the apps I have described do basically the same thing, but in a slightly different way. But for a completely hassle-free uploading of pictures and video from your Camera Roll to your Dropbox, iDisk, FTP server, Amazon S3 bucket, Flickr or Box.net account—CameraSync will automatically begin the upload process right after you open the app. CameraSync can do all the uploading in the background, which means you can switch away from the app and do other things on your iPhone. CameraSync will also keep track of which images and videos it has already uploaded.

Yes, CameraSync and PicBox are nearly the same, the only difference is how fast you want the upload process to begin.

Well, the above are my picks for the top photo syncing apps. Let me know which ones you prefer.

Things to remember order Dell Latitude D620 battery

Every laptop battery is given a power rating in order to show you, the consumer, about how long your Dell Latitude D620 battery should last before it needs to be recharged. These electrical specifications are given using volts (V) and milliAmps (mAh). For example, you may see your Dell Latitude D620 Laptop Battery is given a rating of: 11.1V, 4400mAh.

Volts and milliAmp hours are used because they measure the amount of energy used by a Dell Latitude D620 battery. A volt (V) is a measurement used for the amount of pressure the positive and negative electrodes produce in a laptop battery pack during the process of discharging energy. Amps (A) measure the amount of resistance the energy in your Dell Latitude D620 battery produces in order to power a laptop.

You may also notice that increasing the size of the pipe and shower head without having to open the faucet all the way will produce similar results.This is an example of the amount of resistance in the flow of energy. Measuring this resistance is measured in terms of amps. In terms of a Dell Latitude D620 battery, the amount of resistance is dependant on the size of the Dell laptop battery and the amount of energy inside.

Laptop ratings are given in terms of amp hours (Ah). Amp hours measure the length of time a Dell laptop battery will discharge energy before it needs charging. In order to adequately measure v, manufacturers use milliAmp hours (mAh). This means that every 1000mAh is equal to 1Ah. What does this mean for your new Dell Latitude D630 Battery? If your original Dell Latitude D620 battery is measured at 2500mAh and your replacement Dell laptop battery is measured at 5000mAh, then your Dell Latitude D610 Battery run time will double.

Keep in mind that technology constantly changes. Your old Dell D620 battery may be rated at a lower run time than a newer one because of technological advancements that have produced longer lasting laptop batteries.

Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to Consider

Lenovo, AcerAsus, Dell and HP all have good bargains right now on laptops equipped with older CPUs. But should you wait for laptops powered by new Ivy Bridge chips to hit the shelves? We break it down.

good laptop bargains Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to Consider

Laptop manufacturers are hard at work updating their laptop lines and making new models using Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors. If you’re in the market for a new laptop, however, it may make more sense for you to buy a slightly older laptop running second-generation Sandy Bridge and save a few hundred bucks. Here’s how to decide which purchase is your best option.

 

Ivy Bridge: Better Battery Life and Graphics Performance

 

 Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to ConsiderSave $362 now on a Dell XPS 15z with a Sandy Bridge processor.As with every new chip release, Ivy Bridge promises improved performance and greater power efficiency compared to last-generation Sandy Bridge chips. The general performance boost for the new processor, though, isn’t really that much. In PCWorld benchmarks, the new processor ran only about 5 to 10 percent faster. You might not really notice a difference, especially if you’re running chores that don’t task the processor much–for example, if you’re browsing the Web or editing a document.

 

So what’s Ivy Bridge good for? If you do a lot of tasks that are processor-intensive, you’ll save some time. These tasks include media transcoding and playing video games.

 

Ivy Bridge: Graphics Booster

 

The biggest Ivy Bridge benefits, in fact, are on the graphics side. The new integrated GPU (graphics processing unit) in Ivy Bridge is so improved that you might not need a discrete video card in your laptop for running 3D graphics or playing most games. Intel benchmarks using 3DMark* Vantage show graphics performance gains ranging from 18 percent to 105 percent.

 

If you’re not a gamer or media wrangler, you might prefer a new Ivy Bridge laptop for the 20 percent increase in battery life. Intel has stated that these power savings can add as much as an hour to your Dell inspiron 1545 battery life, so Ivy Bridge laptops may be ideal for road warriors and others who want their laptops to last all day on one charge.

 

Finally, buying an Ivy Bridge laptop has another advantage that has nothing to do with the processor itself. Updated laptop models and new laptops often come with other upgrades besides the CPU: The latest graphics cards, more hard-drive options, thinner and lighter designs, and so on.

 

Buy an Older Laptop to Save Money and for Instant Gratification

 

hp pavilion dm1 4050us 11357355 Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to ConsiderSave $170 now on an HP Pavilion DM1-4050us with a Sandy Bridge processor.Perhaps you don’t need the latest and greatest laptop model. If you don’t play games on your laptop or work with media files–and if an extra hour of HP probook 4710s battery life won’t make much difference to you–you can save hundreds of dollars buying an “older” laptop as retailers try to clear their inventory to make way for the new models. Some Sandy Bridge laptops are just a few months or weeks older than the latest Ivy Bridge ones and may be perfectly suitable for your needs.

 

For example, you can get a 15.6-inch Asus laptop (model A53SD-TS71) with a quad-core Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor, 4GB of memory, a 750GB hard-drive, and an Nvidia GeForce GT610M graphics card for just $750 at aussiebattery. The laptop dropped to its new lowest price in April, right before Intel launched Ivy Bridge.

 

By comparison, the 15.6-inch Asus G55V with an Ivy Bridge Core i7 processor, 12GB of memory, a 750GB hard drive, and an Nvidia GTX 660M graphics card costs more than twice as much–$1449–at J&R (with a $50 discount).

 

(Choosing an older Sandy Bridge processor instead of Ivy Bridge when you’re configuring a laptop won’t get you as much savings, but if your priority is to save as much money as possible, selecting an older processor can help. When configuring an Alienware M14x, for example, choosing a second-generation Intel Core i5-2450M instead of the third-generation Intel Core i7-3610QM will save you $100.)

 

The Asus G55V is a gaming laptop, but only high-end laptops got Ivy Bridge updates in the first wave. This is another reason you might want to buy an older laptop now: You want one right away.

 

According to the Ivy Bridge launch schedule, budget Ivy Bridge laptops–those running Core i3 processors–won’t arrive until the end of the year, while Ivy Bridge mainstream laptops and Ultrabooks are expected to start popping up in June.

 

lenovo 4960855 sa 11357371 Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to ConsiderSave $119 on a Lenovo 1068B9U laptop with a Sandy Bridge processor.Here’s one more reason that may sway you to opt for a cheaper older model, besides price and availability: Sandy Bridge is cooler for overclockers. That is, Ivy Bridge runs hot when overclocked, so if you want to push your laptop’s CPU to its performance limits and need a laptop right now, a Sandy Bridge system is your better bet.
