notebook : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary



Notebook computers are even smaller and lighter than laptops. Some people use the terms interchangeably. You might get the idea from Motorola Xoom ads that this Android class of computer is even faster than desktops. Not so. Notebooks typically have 1 Ghz processors. Desktops typically have 2 to 6 3Ghz processor cores. Notebooks can’t use high performance processors because fast CPUs (Central Processing Units) consume too much power and would drain the batteries. The distinction between a notebook and a smart cellphone is blurred.
