As an upadte my Father has now managed to link his laptop wirelessly to the BT hub, before it wason a desk and cabled. He wanted to use the laptop in the garden and worked out how to log the machine wirelessly all on his own!Read more ›
All of the information is relevant but the new/latest i3, i5, and i7 processors are not covered but don't be too concerned, anyone needing the information in this book probably won't be wanting to pay the money for a laptop with one of these processors.
The book also covers all the Apple products including the ipad, ipod, iphone and the laptop range, giving good and bad comparisons with product alternative where required.
There is even sections covering Wi-Fi and security protection and how to get the best out of your chosen device.
Overall a recommended buy and cheap considering the potential minefield of problems and mistakes buying a new computer can present not to mention the used car salesman attitude of many sales people in conjunction with unscrupulous companies trying to shift all that obsolete stock wrapped in a pretty package.
If your thinking of buying a new mobile device this is a good place to start and just might ensure you buy what you want and not what they want to sell you.
It is suitable for PC & Internet beginners or novices or maybe for people who want to understand the basics of the different devices that have appeared in recent years as alternatives to the desktop PC as a way to access email or the Internet, such as tablets or smartphones.
It would not offer much to anyone who is already comfortable with the devices covered or general use of the Internet.
Similarly, anyone who is thinking of buying any of the devices covered would need a little more detail before making any decisions, but this book should provide the knowledge and confidence needed to seek the more detailed information elsewhere (Internet or shop) and should enable you to narrow your interest to one or two types of device that would be suitable for you.
The biggest challenge for this book is that as technology moves on so quickly the information in any book of this nature will quickly become out of date. Which? need to update this book regularly to keep it up to date. At the time that I am writing this book it has only been out for about 6 months, but if you are thinking of buying a copy you should check that the edition available to you is fairly recent.
