Laptops – Made the world different

By: Evabarnet | Sep 22, 2011 05:38 AM

Laptops came into being when computer manufacturers Toshiba and Sony Computers took the decision to reduce the size of personal computers so that people could carry it along with them wherever they went. They could simply put their small computers into a convenient bag and travel with their computers to the end of the world if they so wished, which meant that people were no longer restricted to working on a computer at one table alone. The very name ‘laptop’ was coined when these small computers could be literally be used by placing them on a person’s lap. Soon a laptop came to be the standard term for portable computers, while the term desktop was applied to those bigger computers that had to be placed on desks either in the homes or in the offices. Typically the laptop was created by reducing the size of the components in a personal computer and some of the big names in the computer industry like Dell, Toshiba, Sony, HP, Compaq, etc. have been pretty active in the laptop market. It was Dell that began making tailor made laptops, which made it easier for customers because they had the option to choose exactly what they required in their laptops like the amount of memory, the size of the hard drive, the speed of the processor among various other requirements. And the best part was that you could select whatever options that you wanted through their website. Soon many other companies began following the Dell example. Gone are the days when customization was limited only to the components inside the laptop. Today people can buy laptops that can be customized even in appearance. Though most laptops were black or grey, these days, laptops come in a variety of colours and one of the most popular colours of recent times is pink, blue and also in a variety of designs. Another reason for laptops also called ‘notebooks’ taking on the world is that unlike days of yore, today a laptop is used not only for business purposes, to carry out various projects etc; they are used for various multimedia activities and have been loaded with far more memory, their processors are more advances and they can store much more that the earlier laptops could.
