    Enter the Blu-ray Experience!
    On its surface, a Blu-ray disc looks very similar to a regular DVD. However, it can do so much more! The name Blu-ray is derived from the blue laser that reads this format of disc. The powerful laser, coupled with the a Blu-ray disc's shorter wavelength, allows for greater data storage than a standard DVD. In fact, a dual layer Blu-ray disc can store up to 50GB. That's almost six times the capacity of a double-dual layer standard DVD!

    However, storage capabilities are only a very small part of what is making Blu-ray a preeminent playback format in today's day and age. Perhaps most impressively, Blu-ray leads the charge of the high-definition era with its stunning sound and 1080p HD capability. Having recently bested HD-DVD in their quest to become the leading HD format, Blu-ray looks to keep on going strong with its amazing visuals and functions!

    Choosing a Notebook:

    Choosing a portable computer, usually called a laptop or notebook, is in many ways similar to choosing a standard desktop computer. Think about your computer needs and balance those with cost. Just remember that bigger screens and extra features usually mean more weight, and the whole point of buying this kind of computer over a desktop model is its portability.

    Here's a quick rundown of the advantages and disadvantages between desktop and notebook computers:

    Desktop computers are…

  • Generally less expensive than notebooks.
  • Usually have bigger keyboards and larger screens.
  • Are difficult to transport.
  • Often bulky and can take up a lot of desk space.

    Notebook computers are…

  • Lightweight and easy to take anywhere.
  • Small and take up very little space.
  • Usually more expensive than desktop models with similar features.
  • More difficult to upgrade and repair.
  • More susceptible to dropping and/or breaking.

    If you decide that a notebook computer is what you want, the next step is to choose the correct machine to fit your needs. Use the scenarios below to determine the notebook that's right for you, based on how you want to use it.
