THIN AND LIGHT

BUYER’S TIPS:


STORING LOTS OF MEMORIES MAY NEED MORE STORAGE SPACE IN YOUR LAPTOP!


Did you know the amount of ‘memories’ you can store on your laptop will depend upon the amount of storage capacity your laptop has? Buying a laptop with additional storage is a way of future-proofing all those fabulous adventures and memories of the future. When you check for storage capacity in the specifications, as a general rule, we recommend the following:

LIGHT TO MODERATE STORAGE: 320GB

(This is enough for most people’s day-to-day use!)

MODERATE TO HEAVY STORAGE:
500GB- 750GB

(For a little more money, this gives you plenty of capacity and options for the future, especially if you’re planning on taking plenty of digital photography and videos.)

Remember, if you fall in love with a particular model and it doesn’t appear to have enough storage – we can add the extra storage for you. Call 13 30 70 and our friendly Toshiba staff will tell you how.

My Memories

Nowadays, cameras and mobile phones make it so easy for us to take and view photos and videos without needing to put a roll of film into the store for developing. All modern cameras and phones come with easy connectivity to laptops, opening up a world of possibilities for those precious memories.

How do I connect my devices to my laptop?


Your camera, mobile phone or video recorder will come with what’s called a USB cable. Once you connect your USB cable into your laptop’s USB port, the computer will automatically recognise the device and start leading you through your options.

If it’s a new device, your computer will prompt you to download the software and set it all up for you. Then, it’s as simple as following the onscreen commands to transfer those memories from your device to your laptop.

What can I do with the pictures and videos once they’re on my laptop?


Computer software, which comes with your laptop, will let you edit your photographs. You can crop them, put special effects on them and even change their size so that you can email them to friends and family. Then you can create folders and even slide shows for the family to enjoy.

How can I use the internet to share my memories?


Keeping those around you up to date is so easy with the internet. You can create photo albums on social networking sites such as Facebook® and share them with others, as well as email and share selected photos with family and friends. You can also search the internet for great photo-sharing sites, which will let you create professional-looking photobooks and even mugs, mousepads, Christmas cards and T-shirts using your own images.

Which laptops are good for heavy photo or video downloads?


All laptops are good for your memories, but if you think you’ll be downloading quite a few photos and videos, we recommend you look at laptops which have what’s called USB 3.0. This is the drive that connects your device to your laptop and a USB 3.0 will give you the fastest transfer speeds.

You might also want to think about whether you’ll need a backlit keyboard, particularly if you’ll be working in dim lighting when you’re on the move.

Touchpads give you the amazing ability to move the mouse on your screen without the need for a physical mouse. If this sounds a bit complicated, we promise you it’s not and if you haven’t used one before, you’ll love the ability to zoom in and out just by using your fingers!
