What does landscape orientation mean in a lab notebook? by Jonathan y Q: I am taking chem 101 this semester, and for my first prelab assignment I have to put specfic information onto the lab notebook, which is divided in the middle by a line. The assignment reads "Before proceeding, set up your bound notebook with four columns arranged in landscape orientation, which means writing across the long (11inch) dimension of the page instead of across the width. Place the following column headings along the page edge nearest the binding of the notebook: Procedures, Observations, Conclusion, and Balanced Equations. Place Parts 1 and 2 on the first page, part 3 on the second, part 4 on the thid, part 5 and 6 on the fourth, and parts 7 and 8 on the fifth." What does this mean? The lab notebook is like a normal book with larger bindings. Do I go horizontally? What do I do with the other half of the page? Can you please help me out, I just don't want to go to class with the wrong setup! Thanks a lot.

A: My attempted diagram of this isn't turning out well given the format involved, but hopefully you can still figure it out. The lines are supposed to be the edges of the page, and the backslashes (\) are the bound edge. The column names should obviously start farther over, after the row names for "Part 1", etc., but my diagram doesn't want to do that. Basically, the normal orientation of a page is called "portrait", and turning it on its side is called "landscape". Let's see how this works out: \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ | | Proc. Observ. Concl. Bal.

How much safer is it to store notebook computers in computer backpacks than regular backpacks? by ǝƃɐʞǝpuɐd Q: I have a notebook computer, and I need to carry it around. I have both a regular backpack and a computer backpack (has a padded computer slot, but is probably twice as bulky w/ all the extra pockets). I really like my regular one better, but is it less safe to store my computer without the padding of a computer backpack? Thanks.

A: if you are not careful in protecting your laptop it won't really matter what backpack you use it will get damaged but the padded sleeve will provide added protection

What is needed to get a notebook online? by lady25mo2001 Q: I recently puchased a 2nd hand Dell notebook/laptop and am basically clueless. I'd like to use it to get online but am not sure what I will need to accomplish this. The notebook does have online capabilities but I'm not sure if I need a card or something to tap into wireless internet or if I have to subscribe to an internet provider. Like I said I'm basically clueless about notebooks so any information or links would be appreciated.

A: Well, first find out if the notebook has a built-in wireless card. If it does, then it is capable of picking up wireless signals. If it doesn't, then you have to purchase an internet card from Sprint or some other carrier to get the internet. If it does have a wireless card built in, then all you have to do is turn on your wifi (a little switch on the side of your computer) and see which wireless signals are in the area. Maybe you'll get one! I'm doing the same thing right now on my Dell laptop w/o a service provider. And look for what are called 'hotspots' like the airport, where there is bound to be a wireless connection. Good luck!

How difficult is it to replace a screen on a notebook computer? by Q: The screen on my husbands' notebook computer cracked. Is it difficult to replace? Since he installed memory, graphics cards, and sound cards into computers in the past is this something he can do himself? Does anyone know of any "do it yourself" websites on notebook computer repair? We cannot really afford to pay someone to repair it right now.

A: takes about an hour and relatively simple. Hardest part is removing bezel to remove screen. Your manual will provide these steps. Just remove old screen and install new one the same way as old. Make sure power is off during process(remove battery and power cord) I just replaced one and works like a charm. Good luck

What is the difference in a notebook and a netbook? by Kelli G Q: I am beginning the search for a smaller "laptop" and I wanted to know the very basic differences between a notebook and a netbook?

A: The term "netbook" was coined for these devices since they are primarily meant for mobile Internet access. They have slower processors and minimal RAM and none of them that I've seen have disc drives, so all software installs with have to be downloaded. You can purchase an external disc drive, but that's another component you will have to carry around and balance on your lap. Notebooks are much more powerful in the sense they have faster processors and a higher capacity for RAM. They typically come with optical drives so no worries there. Probably one of the most important comparison you will want to make is battery life. Netbooks usually only come with a 3 cell Li-Ion battery, while notebooks come with at least a 6 cell. You'd be surprised on how quickly a 3 cell battery drains. Oh and something that I've received as a complaint is that a lot of games (SIMS 3!) will not run on a netbook due to the small screen size. I hope this info helps you in your meticulous search for a laptop. Definitely think about what things are going to be conveniences or annoyances to you specifically before you make a purchase.

What is the difference btw a notebook and a netbook? by Q: I just want the basic differences between a notebook and a netbook. Can netbooks download software? What are the limitations? How about word processing?

A: Netbooks are smaller and less powerful than laptops. It is ok for internet, office app including word documents, simple games, youtube, video playback(not HD video), etc. Laptops are heavier, easier to work with(bigger screen, bigger keyboard), heavy games, compiling programs, has CD/DVD drive, etc. You can download software with either one. If you get dual-core laptop, it is about 10 times faster than netbooks in some benchmarks, so laptop is proper for heavy applications. Try to get Windows version of Laptops or Netbooks because many people find it easier to use. Many people also install OpenOffice on their laptops or netbooks for word documents.

How to personalize a diary or notebook when you're not very creative? by Q: Does anyone has some tips? Is it normal to put pictures of nice popstar-girls in your diary/notebook?

A: Have you got any photographs ? you could upload them to a printing service (for example truprint) and they can make you a notebook with your photos on the cover. And yes it's perfectly normal to put pictures of pretty girls in your notebook.

A: The Notebook Computer A standard notebook has the following features: 1. Ultralight. Less weight is better. 2. 4 - 5 hour battery life. 3. No internal floppy drive. 4. Minimal graphics subsystem. 5. No internal DVD or CD system. 6. 12" - 14" TFT screen. 7. Low profile (thin). 8. Integrated modem and network connection. 9. Smallest possible keyboard that retains functionality. 10. Low power consumption Celeron/Centrino or Sempron style processor. The Laptop Computer Now for the laptop computer. Again look at the name. A laptop is designed to sit on your lap and you can therefore expect it to be quite large and loaded down with features and power. The standard laptop computer would have some, if not all, of the following features: 1. 14" - 17" (widescreen) TFT screen. 2. Nvidia GeForce or ATI Radeon graphics subsystem. 3. Internal DVD-ROM or DVD-RW drive 4. Large full featured keyboard. 5. 3 hour+ battery life. 6. Upgradeable. 7. Integrated modem, network, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capabilities. 8. High quality integrate audio and speaker system. 9. Low power consumption, high performance Intel Centrino style processor.

What are the differences between a notebook computer and a netbook computer? by earnest dubois Q: Hi, What reason is there to prefer the notebook computer over a netbook? I am a bit confused about which one to get. Thanks.

A: Notebooks are medium sized computers, not quite laptops, around 12 to 14" size. These are more powerful than netbooks, but are bigger slightly, yet light (usually) Netbooks are very small and portable, from 7-11 inch. But these are only for web browsing and light tasks. Laptops are larger than 15 inch (technically) although laptops is really the general name. There are also desktop replacements which are very large (17"+) It depends on your needs, portability only (netbooks) portability and power (notebooks) or more power (laptops)

What is the best computer notebook to buy? by ecwboy212 Q: I'm looking to buy a powerful notebook with more than 2.5 GHZ processing speed. I am considering a HP. Is that a good idea?

A: Depends on what you want to use your laptop for, and how much you want to pay! Also depends on choice of operating system - Windows or Linux or Apple !!!! In my experience i suggest you take a look at the following which have performed excellently and good to high reliability - - Power Graphics, for Gaming - Alienware - For Multimedia: Sony Vaio - Desktop Replacement, including P4 processor - HP But Heavy and Hot - Portable Laptop, long battery life, for business use: Dell - Ultralite portable: Toshiba Portege - Roadwarrior, Resilient, Longest Shelf and Battery Life, Most Optimized Performance : IBM Thinkpad - Rich schoolkid whose parents buy you a laptop and they have kind hearts but not too much idea of the real world or stuff on computers (or they work in education) - Apple :o) Lowest reliability was Toshiba, then Dell, then IBM and Sony. Some Dell models such as Dell D400 (no longer available new) has been as rock-solid as the Sony and windows XP Professional on it has never crashed. Overall best performer is IBM Thinkpad series, but their speakers are not that good.

How do I get my notebook to recognize my integrated webcam? by Q: I have the Samsung series 9 notebook and I'm trying to use the Cyberlink YouCam program but whenever I open it up it can't detect the webcam. The webcam works fine for Skype and other video chatting services so I'm just wondering why it won't work for this.

A: Most webcam streams on the internet broadcast via Flash settings that read your webcam installed on your computer. The webcam has a driver and that enables the broadcast. However, if you want to expand your computer's ability to stream your webcam on the internet through multiple open browser tabs and at several sites at once while still keeping your webcam available to applications like a messenger or skype then software is needed. There are free downloads to get these features and recommending you install 'Splitcam' from: http://download.cnet.com/SplitCam/3000-2348_4-10500269.html a feature you want to play a video over your webcam stream can be found in similar downloads but may require upgrading to a paid license on the software. FOR pc and webcam shows download Webcammax. I paid one-time license of $50 and it is worth the program that features 1000s of special effects too. http://www.webcammax.com/download.html

Bringing a notebook and pen in a restaurant? by Looney L Q: My cousin is a poet, musician, and a comedian and he usually carries a small notebook around with him into restaurants incase he thinks of something to write about. I see no problem with it, but other members of the family feel it's embarrassing. My question is what is your take on it? Do you think it's ok for him to bring a small notebook(fits in his pocket) into a res truant or diner? He usually doesn't bring it into a fancy place unless he has a show coming up and is going over his material. Do you see a problem with it?

A: Some people just want to be a-holes. I also do that. My friend told me note to bring mine into a place where he was meeting his "girlfriend" and I told him, well I'll sit over here and you can catch a ride with her. I write plays, jokes, poems, lyrics, and other stuff. I think jealousy is a part of the "embarrassment".

How can I scan multiple pages of a notebook using sequential scanning? by Q: There are around 100 pages in my notebook. My scanner is CANNON MP-110. It takes a lot of time to scan even a single page.(Its intended to scan only one instance ) But when I click on 'Preview', its done in seconds but the image received is useless. Is there any method using which I could scan my full notebook(multiple pages) in a more proper manner?

A: Do you have a way of feeding more documents to the scanner if not, then NO. If you do, then its a matter if the pages can come out of your notebook, if not, then No again. The reason the preview is so fast is because its doing a really low quality scan (Faster your scan the less quality you get). If you lowered the quality of how detailed it scans your pages it wouldn't take as long, but again you get less quality.

How much capacity does a cell in a notebook battery roughly have? by Q: Notebook batteries consist of individual cells, e. g. a 6-cell battery. Is there any way to estimate the overall capacity of a notebook battery from the number of its cells? How much capacity does such a cell typically have? Thanks.

A: "When selecting a battery, manufacturers will often list an amount of “cells,” where each cell has a certain capacity; thus a 9 cell has 50% more capacity than an equal model 6-cell battery. That is useful for comparing directly, but the story is more complex if you wanted to compare different batteries on different laptops. Batteries have a voltage rating (V) and milli-Amp hours (mAH), which, if multiplied together, give you milliwatt hours. For example, a 14.8 V battery with 4460 mAH gives you 66,000 milliwatt hours (66 watt-hours). You can compare batteries this way, but also keep in mind that different laptops have very different power requirements that vary based on the components and how well the operating system manages power consumption. Typically, bigger, heavier batteries will give you a higher watt-hour rating. A 6-cell battery may be the same form factor as a 9-cell, but the 6-cell will weigh less since there’s less chemical in it to hold onto that charge. If you are a mobile warrior, you will want the most cells and/or most watt-hours you can get into your model so you can go 5 or 6 hours without a recharge. It is so painful to run out of power before you are ready. "

How much does it cost to send a notebook? by Diamond K Q: I have a pen pal that lives in New York and I live in California. We want to send a notebook back and forth so we can draw in it, but I heard it was expensive to send a notebook all the way from NY to Cali. Can anyone tell me how much it costs? Also, do I send it in those yellow packets?

A: You have to pack it, or the courier guys will pack it. You can send via post to. To send a laptop to NY, you may need to pay around $80 to $100 depending on its weight! Take care!

How does major retailers sell notebook computers for so cheap? by Bryce D Q: I am looking into building my own notebook computer but I can't seem to do it for under $400. I saw at Best Buy they have some for $299. How can they sell them so cheap? What is their secret?

A: ordering in bulk allows you to buy them cheaper. wholesale companies would much rather guarantee a smaller profit per unit by selling in bulk to a reseller, than risk losing money selling retail.

What is the best notebook computer to buy? by duchess7111 Q: I took my old laptop in to Best Buy today because it had stopped booting. It is a few years old and they said it is more cost efficeient to buy a new one than to put money into the old one. So, now i'm trying to choose a new notebook computer. I am a teacher but this is my home computer. I want it for music, picture and video playing and editing, School related things (word processing, powerpoint) and internet as well as my financial records etc. I do not want a Mac because it will not be compatible with my computers at school. Any suggestions? What should I be looking for?

A: I would still recommend a Mac, as it can run Windows too, which eliminates any compatibility problems. Music: iTunes Photos and Movies(playing and editing): iPhoto, DVD Player, iMovie Word Processing can be taken care of with; Micorsoft Works (Mac or Windows), iWork (includes Keynote, presentation application that has been supported by many people and touted by many to be better than Powerpoint, and Pages, a very good graphics word processor), or bundled word processor in the OS. A MacBook (ranging from $1100-$1600 mainstream) is a (in my opinion) very good laptop for your needs. It has a more than capable speed, good capacity hard drive, etc. However, in order to run Windows, you must buy a separate copy of it (available at Best Buy) and download Boot Camp from Apple's Website. Do you have a budget for a laptop? That could be (*sarcasm*) helpful to prescribe a laptop. Hope that helped. P.S. If you don't get a Mac, do yourself a favor and don't get a laptop under $600. Their lifespan is very short and you'll find yourself looking for a new machine in less than five years.

What is the cheapest notebook i can get that will work with sims 3? by fallenangel51294 Q: I really want to get a notebook and sims 3, but i don't have infinite money, so what's the cheapest?

A: Here is the one that I bought for my daughter. She plays Sims 3 on it and says it is great. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10326306 But here are some other good ones as well: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10379513 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10379513 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10793513 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10752334 Some are bundles that include some things you also may need, such as carrying case, or printer or flash drive. Some are obviously better than others though. But here are a couple af really great ones if you have the money to swing it, http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10859171 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10859118 http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10877795 The last two are great buys if you can swing a bit more. They would play sims 3 and then some. Best part is that they are all new and have full warranty, and you do not have to worry about buying someone else's problems. Hope this helps. Good luck to you.

How can you hook your modem a notebook without installing the software? by Q: I just bought a notebook today and I am trying to figure out how to my modem up to it.

What notebook could I buy for school? by Sithka Q: Hi guys, I am planning to buy a notebook for my school uses. Can you tell me what notebook could I buy for school? Any suggestions would do. I simply use it for only programming and networking modules.

A: I bought HP ProBook 4530s XU015UT 15.6" LED Notebook as a family utility machine, it sits in my living room and at least 4 people use it regularly. I was looking for something that was new and had new components, this has a 2nd gen Intel I3 processor along with a USB 3.0 port and bluetooth 3.0. The major pro to this machine is the price along with some new features. The screen display and keyboard are nice as well. It also has a 720P Webcam with facial recognition software and fingerprint reader(it doesn't always work though). For those that care about noise this thing doesn't really make any, my previous laptop fan ran a lot...........

What notebook would be capable of playing the sims 2 and 3 when that come out? by kris84tine Q: My laptop just broke and I noticed notebooks are a lot cheaper wanted to find out if there was a notebook capable of playing the sims games on as I know they are very big platform games and not all systems are big enough. Any help appreciated.

A: It's really about the graphics. Most laptops and Notebooks only have integrated graphics, not a 'proper' dedicated card. If you are looking at a Notebook that has Vista you need one of the following cards: ATI Radeon 9800 and above. (9800, X550, X600, X700, X800, X850, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950) NVidia 6000 series and above. (6600, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950, 8800) OK cards: These are early DirectX 9 cards and budget cards that may not support all The Sims 2 graphical features. ATI Radeon 9600, 9700, X300, X1300 NVidia 6200, 7100 This modthesims2 link tells you in more detail what cards are recommended for each expansion: http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:System_Requirements/MTS2_Recommendations Dedicated parts drive up the cost of the Notebook, so if you find one that has a dedicated card it probably won't be cheap.

What is a great Notebook for media and creating music and art? by Olive Music Q: I am an art and music student. I need a Notebook, lightweight and under $500. I will buy any brand that works and that won't crap out on me. I would also like to know the names of programs less then $100 that I can purchase to help record, and edit my original music. It is kind of a double question. Links too please!

Will notebook coolers help lengthen a laptops life span and what other methods will help? by Mcloving Q: Im planning to get a laptop and hope it lasts at least four years, i will use it a lot will notebook coolers help it to last longer so it doesnt break? 1) I know cleaning the fans and carrying it around less helps too 2) does notebook coolers help or do they just make your computer run smoother since at higher temperatures it slows down. 3) Any other methods to help a laptop last longer?

A: notebook coolers reduce the temperature of the laptops components so, they will last longer. make sure that you choose a popular computer so that you can buy replacement parts for your laptop: I have an old IBM T41 ThinkPad which is like 4 years old but, it has a user manual which tells you how to remove and replace all the different parts which you can get cheap online. I've so far upgraded the processor, the RAM and the harddisk.

What is the best laptop/notebook for a college student? by Missa_805 Q: I would like to know what laptop/notebook is the best a college student. I probably need a lot of memory on it and it should be able to fit in a back pack without being to heavy. Also do colleges make you have a certain laptop/notebook? I am going to a community college, would it matter?

A: The requirements for college are actually some of the lightest, as most of what you do is browse for information/email/course work and word processing. What you need to look are also the other factors, such as battery life, weight, and what you are going to use it for. Netbooks : Great for portability, great battery life (up to 7-10 hours in same cases), all in one unit. Negatives : Small keyboard, Small screen, No CD/DVD drive. Laptops: all around great, however they can be a bit larger and heavier. I would look for a $500 laptop from either HP, Dell, or toshiba try to get : Core 2 duo 3 gigs memory good luck

What is a good new notebook to buy for creating digital art and watching movies? by Q: My current notebook is no longer doing what I need, so it's time for a replacement. I'll be creating art (in programs like Photoshop), writing in Word, watching movies, etc. There are two musts: accurate colors shown (as accurate as I can get, I mean) and a widescreen display. Interested in another HD screen. Thank you! I just need some help finding the notebook I'm looking for!

A: I'm guessing you'll be doing light Photoshopping. Anything really heavy on a laptop isn't smart- they really aren't meant for photo/video editing. Regarding the screen, I think any laptop you get now will have fairly true colors. LCDs (especially TFT panels, like in laptops) have come really far, and their quality is very good, even on low-end computers. So if in your laptop hunt, you don't see specific mention of a spectacular screen, don't rule that computer out of your possibilities. Most likely it will be fine anyway. Now, some technical specifications I'd recommend for you: Processor: Dual-core RAM: at least 3GB Hard Drive: at least 250GB, preferably 320GB Screen Size: Not less than 15" DVD Drive: speed isn't gonna differ terribly, as long as it's included, it'll work Video: If you can, get a laptop with dedicated graphics memory (it may say 512MB graphics, or 256MB is fine too. If it doesn't mention any graphics card, it means it's an integrated stock card, which may slow down your image editing. So, I've looked at some models for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834200028 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834117990 And, the more expensive (but best) option: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834127003 I am fond of the Sony VAIO series. They're seriously good-looking laptops, and they perform really well.I think any brand should be fine though. Regards, Lucien Briscoe

How do I get my notebook and desk top monitor to turn on together at the start up? by escubio r Q: How do I get my notebook and desk top monitor to turn on together at the start up? My notebook is a Dell XPS and my daughter nelt down on it and cracked the monitor :( $480 to replace. YIKES any suggestions?

Whats the difference between notebook and netbook? by Victoria G Q: My dad wants to get my mom a computer for christmas. It has to be pink and needs to be under 400. I can't seem to find a pink one in that range except a net book. I'm not sure exactly what the difference is between a net book and notebook. What's the difference? What does a notebook have that a net book doesn't and vice a versa?Thank in advance!

A: the primary difference is the net-book will be missing the optical drive. (ie. no dvd or cd drive) but you can use a usb dvd drive with that, and also the spec's will be lower. and the screen size also will be smaller ( less than 14inch). but net books are good for internet browsing and home applications ( no heavy games, but it can play flash games) its better to take ur mom while going to purchase, due to the smaller size some ppl don't like it. hope this helps. happy holidays.

How can I network my notebook to print wireless? by ryanconnarton Q: I have a Linksys WRTG (or something like that) wireless access point router providing wireless internet to my notebook from being hooked up to my cable modem. I have an iMac 08 as my main PC, and a Windows Vista notebook. How would I set it up so I can print with the printer that is downstairs with my main computer when I'm upstairs on my notebook?

A: you need a wireless print server attached to your printer. you can connect the wireless print server to your printer via USB. Once the Print server is attached and powered on your laptop should be able to pick up you printer as a wireless device. Look at the diagram in this link http://www.usr-emea.com/images/popups/5436a/5436a-unkg.gif WHY DOESN'T ANYONE UNDERSTAND, THE QUESTIONER WANTS TO PRINT WIRELESSLY

Do Dell notebook computers automatically shut off when they overheat? by ǝƃɐʞǝpuɐd Q: I have a Dell notebook computer, and I'm downloading a program, which is taking forever.

How can you connect notebook with a broken screen to and external moniter? by Darth's Alter Ego Q: Is there a way to connect a notebook to an external moniter for use without a functioning screen on the notebook? I have a 22 inch external moniter and a HP notebook with a busted screen .What type of set up can I use or do I need to make this work together?

A: All notebook PC have 15-pin VGA (and DVI in some) connector for external monitor. Start the notebook with external monitor connected and power on. If there is no signal to the external monitor then check your notebook manual for how to switch to external monitor. For an example, Toshiba notebooks use Fn + F5 for switching monitor. Don't hurry, wait few seconds before you try again if external monitor still has no signal. Option could be internal -> internal + external -> external -> TV.... not necessarily in this sequence and each switching takes some time.

notebook???????? by Seeking Answers Q: did you like the movie or book better? or did you like the movie atonement better than notebook? or was the book atonement good?

A: For The notebook, i liked the movie better but the book was good too. I'm actually reading Atonement now!! The beginning is seriously very close to the book. it's almost exactly the same but the book has a lot of detail and more character development. the movie Atonement is long and sometimes hard to understand but really good. The end, well i won't spoil it for you, but it makes sense. well to me it did. my sister is still mad over it! lol i really like the book Atonement but its a different kind of writing. Very very detailed and the character Briony is very developed. Also, in the movie, many scenes are shown from different POVs so just watch out for that!! But i strongly suggest The Notebook book and movie and Atonement book and movie!!
