How to Determine the Best Laptop for You

R862JGHXU6GV
Laptops are quickly becoming the most widely selling computers. They can range from very small and compact to the larger variety, which are excellent replacements for desktop systems. While there are so many different types of laptops available out there, determining the best one for you is a very personal thing. There are numerous factors that come into play when you are shopping for a new laptop computer and you will have to think about them before making a purchase.

While price is often a huge factor in what a person will buy, this should not be a primary one. The first thing you should consider is the laptop’s processor and memory. Think about what you will need a new laptop for and what exactly your intentions are in using it. Is gaming your primary purpose for getting the new computer? Or are you simply in the market for a new laptop because you want to browse the Internet? Perhaps you need the computer to use various office programs such as word processing and spreadsheets. If you plan on doing anything that requires extensive graphics performance, you should look for a laptop that has an excellent video and graphics card as well as a fast processor and plenty of RAM. However, if you just want to perform the most basic tasks, you can consider a laptop that has the minimal amount of memory with a smaller processor.

Hard drive space is also of utmost importance. Obviously, if you are planning on creating and saving many files, you will want a larger hard drive. If your intention is to download tons of music and video directly to your laptop’s internal hard drive as opposed to an external one, you should opt for one with a bigger capacity. If you are simply using a laptop for work and for saving a few documents, you can select one with a smaller hard drive. Currently, you can buy a laptop with anywhere from 320GB to 750GB of storage space.

The operating system of your laptop is also very important. You can opt for a Microsoft Windows laptop or an Apple Mac laptop if you prefer that platform. You may even lean more toward an older Windows operating system if you are not fond of Windows 7 as there are still Windows XP and Vista machines being sold by some vendors. These will likely be less expensive as well.

If you plan on using your new laptop on the go, you will want to consider its battery life. You will not always have the option of plugging in the adapter, depending on where you are, so look for a battery that lasts at least a good eight hours. Another important aspect of a laptop you will be toting with you often is the size and weight. There are many smaller, thinner and lighter machines available that are a joy to carry around as they will not weigh you down.

Keeping your eyes open for all of the most important specifications will ensure you will find the best laptop for you. Once you have determined all of these factors, you can research various brands and models that fit your needs as well as your budget.

Buy and Sell your stuff by watching the video




123exchanges.com Goes Live With a Video Marketplace To Buy and Sell Used Products Via Video Listings

Do you have unwanted things lying around your house?  Do you have old products you want to sell to make some extra cash?  Are you tired of looking at just photos when you go online shopping?  Now you can actually buy and sell used products with video listings instead of just plain simple photos.  This is the idea behind the new website 123exchanges.com, a new site that offers users the ability to post video adverts of their products.

Leon Nguyen, the founder of 123exchanges.com explained the concept behind the site.

“It’s quite a simple idea really. I am a firm believer that when we get to watch videos of products' listings, especially a second hand products, the easier it is for us to make a solid decision.  There are people today who use videos to sell stuff on Facebook, used cars websites, YouTube,  Vimeo, and Pinterest but there's no central place for users to just search and look for used products with video listings.  That is where we come in to  make it easier for people to watch and buy used products with more confidence."

Selling on 123exchanges is very easy.  Users can sign up via Facebook or Twitter and upload the videos of the products that they wish to sell. In this way any potential buyer is able to see the entire product at all angles.  It provides a much better understanding of the condition of the product.

“If you're searching for a used cars,” Leon told us, “You now can watch video car listings without leaving the comfort of your home.  Once you see the video of the car you like, then you can head out to the seller and ask for a test drive.”

The use of videos on the site will help reduce the number of trips to meet with different sellers.  Traveling can be very time costly and fuel prices are going up very fast.  Sitting at home and watch video listings before you head out to meet with the seller can save you great amount of time and money. 
 
So how 123exchanges.com actually work? It’s very simple. If you have a used products such as cars, motorcycles, electronics, furniture, or appliances just upload a quality videos of the products and start selling.  You can just sell locally like Craigslist or you sell globally with a premium account and collect payment via PayPal.

Building An Online Writing Name Through Guest Blogs



 Have you ever envisioned an online writing career for yourself? Traditional media writers would do well to consider delving in the world of online writing aside from writing for the usual forms of media like print, television, radio, and even film. Blogging or online article writing is proving to be a highly rewarding pursuit nowadays. How do you make an online writing name for yourself though?

Guest Blogging And Guest Blogging Providers

Guest blogging is one of the most effective ways to jumpstart your online writing career. Writing guest blogs is a good way to get recognized by potential clients. If you have zero experience with writing blogs and online articles, then accepting guest blogs is your ticket to attracting the attention of the online writing community. Guest blogs can feature your personal and professional profile and give both website owners and readers cues that you indeed exist and is truly ready to take up any online writing challenge.

It is recommendable to start with guest blogging for free first before you go on with paid blogs. Here are some free guest blog website suggestions which you might want to enlist or register on:

  1. Blogger LinkUp (http://www.bloggerlinkup.com/)
This is a free blogging service that gives you information about guest blog ads from bloggers or website owners who are looking for content in their respective sites. The ads include details like the blog topic, writing style requirements and the blogger’s contact details like email address and official blog or website.  It is created by Cathy Stucker who is also known as the Idea Lady. When you enlist in this service, you will get emails during Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays about the different guest blog ads. Aside from this, you can also submit an “ad” of your own and promote yourself as a guest blogger for certain topics or niche of your own. Creating an account is very easy and the benefits are indeed amazing and conducive for would-be paid bloggers.

  1. My Blog Guest (http://myblogguest.com/)
Created by Ann Smarty and a web support team, My Blog Guest is a blogging site that started out as forum but developed into a full-blown blogging service site. They feature an articles gallery which shows the list of uploaded articles by guest blog authors. Blog or website owners can then select from this gallery which articles they deem are interesting or suitable for their sites. There are also many subscription offers which members can avail of. You can start by creating a free account and start uploading limited posts and eventually work to acquiring a premium account which have special guest posting tools for a fee. This option allows you to post more articles than the free option does.

  1. Blog Synergy (http://www.blogsynergy.com/)
It is basically the blogging community’s social network. You also start by signing up for a free account and create your own author profile. You can then interact with fellow blogger members and get to exchange posts and writing ideas. Just like Blogger LinkUp, you can find lists for both guest blog hosts to write for or guest bloggers to ask blogs from. 

  1. Linknami (http://www.linknami.com/guest-post/)
The Linknami site provides both guest bloggers and blog owners blogging opportunities and benefits. You can get either free or paid linking tools. This site allows you to buy text links and contextual one way links from high ranking pages. It paves a way for you to get good quality back links for your site that will eventually drive traffic to it.

Are you now inspired to finally start building up your online writing career? With these blogging tools, this business or work venture is not impossible. Acquiring blogging opportunities is now as easy as checking your email, looking at updates, and submitting articles or blogs for potential blog owners. Are you ready to get the blogging party started?

Best alternate sites like Craiglist to Buy & Sell used Stuff

Oodle
The concept of posting online adds is similar but embraces Facebook to provide a personal experience. If you use Facebook for postings, Facebook will be accessible via Oodle, of course you can post without using Facebook too. You can find the part time or near by jobs in metropolitan areas in this site.


Geebo
This site looks like most classified sites and it uses the  tag line "safe community classifieds" and claims to have more personal atmosphere. It doesn't have much impact on selling/buying. It offers thumbnail images easy to use filters. However it best to find a free chair or get rid of an old things.


Sell.com
This site is quite basic and fee to post on, you can highlight your ads by paying money. It provides space for thumbnail images of many items. It looks more similar to eBay like features such as  shopping card seller ratings.


Backpage
The best alternative for Craiglist, it looks very simple in design and allows the users to free posting system(much easier than Craiglist posting). Of course Backpage is not as popular as site but in it is robust in some areas of United States. However this site provides good service.


eBay Classifieds
This site competes with Craiglist and is a bit different from other sites why because first it was launched globally and later limited to United States only. It became more popular in metro areas. mainly it focuses on buying and selling and also supports other classifieds like jobs, housing and more. The design of the site is more attractive than any other sites.
