Computers have come a long, long way since they were first invented. In size they have gone from taking up an entire room to now fitting quite comfortably in the palm of one’s hand. Power wise, it is commonly known that the computer in your mobile phone is far more powerful than the computers that helped navigate Apollo 11 to the Moon. It is not just the computer that is becoming more advanced, thanks to Wi-Fi and wireless technology our computers no longer make that awful dial tone sound when they connect to the internet. The hum of the machine is a lot quieter than previously and the sound technology from speakers is clearer and sharper than ever before.
What kinds of computers are now pushing the world of technology? And what is it about them that make them so much more advanced?
Tablets. Super small, touchscreen tablets are now a number of things all on one platform. It can be a movie theatre, a book, access to the internet, a game or even an artist’s canvas. Businessmen use tablets for working on the go as they are a perfect commuter size. The amount you can do on it is endless. The first popular consumer mainstream tablet device was Apple’s iPad in 2010. It was created as a hand held touchscreen device that relies entirely on the internet to download software. The iPad is a great portal to connect to web browsing, email and accessing media such as photos, videos and audio.
Rugged Computers. These are the toughest, most hard withstanding computers you can come across. Built for server conditions these reliable devices are not delicate or easily broken. They work brilliantly for outdoor work where they may get wet, dusty or are required to operate during strong vibrations. They are sturdy inside and out ensuring they can work at the best ability no matter what the conditions. Usually they come with an inbuilt sealed keyboard so that there is no risk of moisture and dust getting into the interior. They also have a scratch proof screen so that if they get knocked against rocks or hard sandy conditions they are still readable. They come in various sizes: from laptops to tablet PCs and personal digital assistants. The type of industries that use a rugged computer are outdoor trades such as public safety workers, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, transport services and the military.
Fanless PCs. A fanless computer makes little noise. You can get fanless personal computers for professionals that work with audio and video who need background noise to be as silent as possible. Fanless PCs keep the temperature inside a computer down using other methods of cooling other than a fan. A fanless computer means it can run twenty four hours seven days a week without failing so they often come in the form of industrial rugged computers.
