Check out MacBook Lags

hp revolve front 300x225 Three reasons a Windows 8 laptop leads, MacBook lags

This week Hewlett-Packard offered a few good reasons to consider a Windows 8 laptop over a MacBook.

Those arguments are embodied in an upcoming 3-pound HP EliteBook Revolve business ultrabook “convertible” that was announced this week.

The MacBook Air is a fine design (I use one every day) and the new 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro is an even better design. But the Apple way isn’t the only way. Here are three features that the MacBook ain’t got.

Details of MacBook

 

Built-in 4G: The EliteBook Revolve offers built-in 4G LTE or HSPA+. Wi-Fi-only MacBooks are getting a bit stodgy. It’s almost 2013. 4G should at least be optional on a MacBook.

Let’s put it this way, if 4G is an option for the iPad, why not for a tiny 2.4-pound MacBook Air? And if HP is including it in an ultrabook like the Revolve, you can bet there’s a reason: some of HP’s business customers are demanding it.

And sharing plans make it feasible to share 4G data across multiple devices now.

Touch screen: I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. Touch is de rigueur for any mobile device now. And two years from now, a portable device without a touch screen will be an anachronism. Like a keyboard without a mouse.

Fact is, HP offered a touch-screen tablet long before the iPad. Unfortunately, it was saddled with Windows XP. And HP (and Microsoft) could never see beyond the stylus as an input medium.

Docking station: I used HP docking stations for years (which the Revolve includes). They were a godsend. When you need to pick up and run, it’s just a matter of popping the lappy out. No disconnecting and reconnecting cables.

  1. Ok I have had the Virgin Mobile Broadband2go(3rd generation) for any couple of years, after i purchased, it had been fast however its shateringly slow. In the beginning I figured I’d infections on my small computer but last month I purchased a brand new laptop also it was still being slow, and so i made the decision it is time to upgrade my online sites.

    I really like prepaid since it’s not necessary to provide “major” private information with regards to you like SSN (Particularly when you obtain a service on the internet), now after hrs of browsing the web I have found an online service known as “Obvious” that provides 4G speeds along with a great products, let’s focus on the issue for anybody that has the Obvious service:

    1. Would be the speeds on obvious good? (Checked the policy map it states I am fully covered)

    2. Could it be quick enough for Netflix? (My virgin mobile causes it to be freeze :( )

    3. Does Obvious request for any SSN whenever you apply online?, If that’s the case, have they got stores and so i could use person rather? (like I stated tend not to provide some good info on the internet)

    4. Has anybody had any issues with the service? Like hard to rely on service?

    5. Could it be really limitless or will they cut you off or place a cap in your speed following a couple of GB’s?

    THANKS!!!!!

  2. and what are the differences between 3rd generation and 4G?

  3. I understand there is a couple of test phones out, not for that public, along with a couple of towers, but exactly how lengthy could it be before the 4G has gone out and phones are available ready for 4G? And if I ugraded now could I bring my phone to Verizon and encourage them to have great results on 4G? Finally will 4G phones work around the 1X because the current 3rd generation phones do like a backup?

    I understand it’s lots of questions, but answer anything you can.
