Should you upgrade your PC to Windows 10 Operating System?

Windows OS

Firstly, for all those who are contemplating on upgrading to Windows 10, this article shares with you some important features of this new Operating system. All those who have used Windows 7 will definitely be interested to upgrade to Windows 10, whereas those affected with the Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 upgrade would prefer a thorough analysis before upgrading.

The last chance to Upgrade:

Microsoft had guaranteed a free update within a year’s time after the release of Windows 10 to existing genuine windows licensed users. This would be your last opportunity to opt for your free upgrade, in case you have decided to opt for it, but wait before you do so.

Microsoft has been rolling out frequent updates and in case you were as curious as a cat to click on the upgrade, don’t worry; rolling back to your previous version is accomplished with just a few clicks, if you are thinking a lot about that.

Microsoft has listed the free and paid upgrades for its genuine users and the details are listed below:

  • Windows 7 (SP1) – Free

  • Windows 8.1 – Free

  • Windows XP – Paid

  • Windows Vista – Paid

  • Windows RT – Surface tablets cannot upgrade to Win 10. However, future inclusion is assured as of now

  • Smaller tablets support win 10 upgrade. However, waiting for it to be released to all devices is necessary.

Kudos to MS for the desktop style

Microsoft has waved a goodbye to their confusing desktop environment used in Windows 8. This is one pleasant UI change and the one that was keenly looked forward to. Finally the start menu is back to where it really belonged.

Cross-Compatibility:

The apps in Windows desktop can be connected and accessed across all your windows devices. The ability to sense the device and readjust the interface according to the device is performed by the continuum interface. This shape – shifting interface lets the system search for a keyboard to use the tablet or the non-tablet mode.

Reserve your copy through the ‘Get Win 10‘ app available on the machine’s task bar. If you are eager to reserve one now, go ahead and select it and view the confirmation note, but later if you change your mind, no worries just select cancel.

Edge browser is a welcome change to a Windows user. If this browser could bid farewell to IE, then it will be very well appreciated as it is faster than IE and simpler to use but it is in the early stages of development. After competitors have been playing with Siri and Google Voice, Microsoft has introduced Cortana and it is available on the start menu.

Why not?

Even with so many good options that are pleasant to use, there’s one thing that troubles the user to a good deal; upgrading to Windows 10. Users have been trying to upgrade and though Microsoft has helped resolve system issues, there seems to be more to come in terms of compatibility as well. For security reasons, it is best advised to wait for next updates from Microsoft before opting for an upgrade. This is a beta product which is still in its early stages of testing; wait it out before you leap!

Asus G751JY review

asus2If you are looking for a top of the line gaming laptop, Asus G751JY is the one for you. This new breed of gaming laptop features G-Sync compatible screen and you can get this new game changing laptop for the price of £1,500. You can get many great gaming laptops for less than 1000, but you will never get the performance of the G751JY. Although you get many new feature, the real star of the show is G-sync. Thanks to Nvidia’s G-Sync technology, you certainly will enjoy a smooth gaming experience.

This laptop from Asus comes laden up with high performance hardware. Asus G751JY features a 17.3-inch display, a GeForce GTX 980M GPU, 32 GB of memory, a Core i7-4860HQ quad-core chip and amazing boot and transfer times. With these specifications, you will get the smoothest gaming experience ever on your laptop.

The gamers are bound to welcome the minimalist matte black look of the G751JY. All around, the look of this laptop is not very flamboyant and will fancy the gamers who want a mature and practical gaming laptop. Asus have done a good job making this system resistant to fingertips and scratches. This laptop measures 1.7 by 16.5 by 12.5 inch (HWD) and is backed up with the In-Plane Switching (IPS) display that offers you a wide viewing angle. The screen of this laptop is a bright one with a 1920×1080 resolution and is well suited for outdoor use as well.

Asus G751JY comes equipped with a red, backlit, chiclet-style keyboard. This keyboard is very comfortable to use. Its main focus is on gamers’ comfort especially for long gaming sessions. On the keyboard, there are five special keys. One of these is to start video recording of the game play. You can later on share this video recording with your friends.

This particular laptop is exceptional from connectivity point of view as well. The sides of Asus G751JY are jam-packed with I/O ports. There is an HDMI port, a headset jack, an Ethernet port, a Thunderbolt port, a line-out jack, a VGA port and four USB 3.0 ports. The laptop has a 802.11ac Wi-FI and Bluetooth too. This laptop comes equipped with a Blu-ray/DVD burner combo drive too which will help you install more games and watch movies too.

This laptop from Asus comes with humungous storage capacity. This slick machine has two drives: a 512GB SSD for bootup and a 1TB 7,200rpm SATA hard drive. You can store tons of games, movies, songs, photos and lots of other stuff. It comes with some preinstalled programs that include Netflix, Twitter, Line, Flipboard and Zinio etc.

One of the weak areas we found with Asus G751JY is its battery life. This laptop has an integrated 6000MaH battery that doesn’t last too long while playing some battery intensive games like Battlefield 4. The battery gets fully recharged in 2 hours and gives almost three to four hours when the laptop is being used for web browsing and for watching movies etc.

This goes without saying that Asus G751JY has transformed the way gamers used to play. There is a plethora of features in this laptop, which cannot all be discussed in a few words. I recommend Asus G751JY to all the gamers out there.

MSI CX61 features: Let us talk about its major features:

  • Gaming capabilities: MSI is famous for creating gaming notebooks, which is why it is ideal for gamers who do not want to spend a lot of money and compromise the ability to play games.

The CX61’s gaming capabilities are very impressive. The NVidia GeForce GT 645M is not particularly an extravagant choice, but it is able to cope with most modern titles. At the laptop’s original 1,366×768 resolution and the similar detail settings, you can see a silky-smooth 48.4fps. This shows that the CX61 is certainly up to the demands of modern 3D games.

Moreover, the notebook comes with a row of shortcut buttons which are located next to the power button slightly above the keyboard. These allow you to access the mobility and power options, turn the Wi-Fi and screen on and off and remove whatever is inside the disc drive.

Even though the notebooks’ touchpad is somewhat small when compared to other notebooks’ keyboard, he touchpad of CX61’s faintly textured surface makes it extremely responsive.

 

  • Display: The CX61 has a good-quality full High Definition display. The anti-glossy and anti-glare surface keeps reflections to a minimum. Whereas the LED backlight extents to an ample maximum brightness. Color and contrast accuracy are excellent too.

The brightness display seems fairly even. You will not experience a decrease in brightness levels even when the notebook is running on battery charger.

 

  • Audio: Even though the body of this multimedia notebook can be equipped with four speakers, the CX61 just has two, which can be found above the keyboard. The maximum volume is pretty high and is reproduced easily.

Moreover, external speakers can increase the overall sound quality of the laptop. A latest AV receiver must be connected using the digital HDMI port, though a standard 3.5 millimeter jack is available too.

Certain other specifications are:

  • latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology
  • 4th Generation Intel CoreTM processors
  • USB3.0 data transfer technology
  • Built-in 720P HD Webcam
  • Windows 10 Home/Windows 10 Pro

So if you are looking for a powerful desktop replacement system for entertainment or work purpose, MSI CX61 will provide you impressive performance at an extremely reasonable price.
