A notebook computer is a term used interchangeably with laptop computers. For those of you not familiar, a notebook computer is one that is smaller and lighter than a personal computer. You can take it with you anywhere so it offers you more access to the internet, a way to watch movies, and even a way to work while you’re away on business trips.
The first notebook computer was introduced in 1981 but they were very expensive and not as versatile as they’re today. IBM and Epsom both placed versions of portable laptops on the market in 1983. Even with more models emerging, notebook computers were an item often associated only with high profile businessmen.
It was not until 1995 when Microsoft introduced their operating system Windows 95 that the world of notebook computers exploded. This operating system along with advances in technology that allowed notebook computers to function in the same ways as a personal computer led to them dropping in price and more consumers buying them.
Some of the improvements that occurred around this time were a better battery that no longer included acid. Power saving notebook computers were introduced so the life of the battery lasted much longer. They also were now able to hold more data so they could be used for more concepts at any given time.
And so today you see people of all ages carrying their notebook computers to the office, home, on airplanes, colleges, and hotels. Many public places are set up with areas for individuals to conveniently use their laptops. Since we live in such a computer age having a notebook computer can help you stay on top of things for work and pleasure no matter where you go.
You can find notebook computers in a variety of sizes and from multiple manufacturers. They come with a good price, plenty of storage capacity, and warranties. If you’re in the market for a notebook computer you will have no trouble finding exactly what you’re looking for.
In computing, Inter-Process Communication (IPC) is a set of techniques for the exchange of data among multiple threads in one or more processes. These processes may be running on one or more computers connected by a network. For smooth functioning of enterprise computing applications in a large widely dispersed corporation usage of IPC components is must for data communication and information sharing. Portwell-Laxsons India Pvt. Ltd. is an Indo-Taiwan Joint Venture Company between Laxsons India Pvt. Ltd. and Portwell Inc, Taiwan specializing in IPC products and other applied & enterprise computing based products including embedded computing products, DVR products and industrial networking products.IPC Products:
The products that support inter-process and inter-application communication are known as IPC products. These are the computing products that offer exchange of data, information sharing within single computer system or multiple computers. As enterprise computing products manufacturer, Portwell-Laxson provides best ranges of high quality IPC computing products including single board computers, Industrial backplanes, storage extension board, industrial main board, industrial chassis and various power supply products.Single Board Computers:
Single board computers are complete computers built on a single circuit board. With all features needed for functional computer on the one board, these computers are commonly used in industrial situations for process control or embedded within other devices to provide control and interfacing. At Portwell-Laxsons we specialize in providing PICMG single board computers in different versions of 1.3, 1.2, and 1.0 with availability of backplanes offering virtually any slot configuration including legacy ISA support. Our PCI single board computers are Pentium M/Celeron M processor based half-sized PCI SBCs available with VGA, LCD, LAN and Audio.Industrial Backplanes:
Industrial backplanes are circuit boards that contain sockets or expansion slots for connections to other circuit boards. At Portwell-Laxsons, we have both active and passive ranges of industrial backplanes available in different specifications like PICMG, PCI and ISA. Active backplanes contain bus control and motherboard circuitry but do not contain processor complex components such as the central processing unit (CPU), chipset, or cache. Passive backplanes contain circuitry for bus connectors and, in some cases, buses and drivers. The PICMG 1.2 backplanes and PICMG 1.3 backplanes offered by us are the most commonly preferred varieties of active backplanes available in the market. When it comes to active backplanes our PICMG 1.0 backplanes we offer them with wide range of slot varieties to satisfy diverse slot requirements of the customers. The PCI backplanes and ISA backplanes available with us add to our best ranges of passive backplanes that come in 3 to 14 slot range.Extension Board:
At Portwell-Laxsons we excel in providing extension boards which SCSI extension modules with OmniPCI connection interface. The storage extension board with high connection interface is available with us for Intel Pentium 4 processor based SBC. This storage extension board with high connection interface is available in compact size with proprietary PCI connector for piggy back or board-to-board connection. The one-port Ethernet extension board and two-port gigabit Ethernet extension board varieties available with us make up the list of most sought-after varieties of Ethernet extension modules.
Also known as computer case, computer chassis is the enclosure that contains most of the components of a computer usually excluding the display, keyboard and mouse. When it comes to rack-mount chassis, a wide continuum of 1U to 6U industrial chassis is available with us to suit your diverse chassis requirements. Our industrial rack-mount chassis are the 1U, 2U, 3U,4U, 5U, 6U rack-mount cases that are feature rich, well cooled, and perfect for diverse high density rack installations.
Not only these, we also offer high quality main boards, power supply products like 1U PSU ATX power supply products, 2U PSU ATX power supply produ
