To help you choose the right device, we have divided our notebooks by application. Think about what you need your laptop for and we’ll tell you which device is right for you.
2-in-1 notebooks While a few years ago, desktop PCs were the only choice, today’s selection ranges from tablets and phablets to smartphones and notebooks. Each of these devices has specific advantages and disadvantages, which ultimately means the average person in Switzerland has more than one of these types of computers. But when it comes down to it, the growing number of devices doesn’t just mean more work; owning several devices costs us more, too. Renowned manufacturers of the likes of Intel and Microsoft responded to this trend with 2-in-1 notebooks. These devices feature rotating, folding, sliding and clicking mechanisms so you can switch between tablet and regular notebook mode whenever you like.
Business notebooks In a business environment, there are higher demands on security, productivity and reliability than in the private sphere. Therefore, business notebooks tend to be more durable and are known for the enhanced manufacturer support that comes with them (for example, driver support). They boast more resistant housing, a good range of interfaces and improved administrative functions thanks to Windows Pro. But what’s most important when it comes to business notebooks is security. Examples of security features of business devices include better basic warranty coverage (including expansion options), drive encryption, physical theft protection, fingerprint reader, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and smart card reader.
Home office notebooks If you intend to use your notebook mostly for things like checking the SBB timetable, writing letters and having a look at the weather forecast, a home office device is ideal for you. These starter devices deliver enough performance for everyday tasks without breaking the bank. They’re known for their fairly large screens and computing power that’s good enough to run common programmes without stalling. On top of this, they’re robust and usually have a good range of interfaces for connecting peripheral devices (printer, mouse, speakers, etc.).
Multimedia notebooks Who doesn’t recognise this scenario: you’re enjoying some well-deserved holiday, taking photos and filming to see what your new camera can do. You’ve got all your memories captured. Now all you have to do is remove that belly with Photoshop and edit the footage for your next YouTube video. The only problem is your GoPro Camera records in 4k and your old notebook doesn’t have the computing power to edit the media files. As camera resolution and system requirements on photo editing software increase, so too must computing power. Multimedia notebooks close the gap between affordable home office devices and gaming systems with high-end graphics power.
Gaming notebooks Gaming notebooks are the front runners in terms of processor and graphics performance. These are the devices that get tech enthusiasts going. Gaming laptops usually feature eye-catching design with adaptable lighting and keyboard layout. But these devices are about more than just their looks; they also stand out for: plenty of memory, super-fast processors, high-end graphics performance and maximum screen quality.
Portable notebooks Portable notebooks are specially designed to meet today's mobility needs. All the notebooks in this category have two main features in common: lightweight design (≤ 1.5 kg) and screen diagonal no larger than 13.3 inches, making them practical and easy to pack into your bag. Another advantage is their low energy consumption. A full battery lasts up to an entire day, depending on how much you use your portable device.
The thermal design power (TDP), sometimes called thermal design point, refers to the maximum amount of power the cooling system in a computer is required to dissipate. For example, a laptop's CPU cooling system may be designed for a 20 watt TDP, which means that it can dissipate up to 20 watts of heat without exceeding the maximum junction temperature for the computer chip. It can do this using an active cooling method such as a fan or any of the three passive cooling methods, convection, thermal radiation or conduction. Typically, a combination of methods is used. The TDP is typically not the most power the chip could ever draw, such as by a power virus, but rather the maximum power that it would draw when running "real applications". This ensures the computer will be able to handle essentially all applications without exceeding its thermal envelope, or requiring a cooling system for the maximum theoretical power (which would cost more but in favor of extra headroom for processing power).
A multi-core processor (or chip-level multiprocessor, CMP) combines two or more independent cores (normally a CPU) into a single package composed of a single integrated circuit (IC), called a die, or more dies packaged together. A dual-core processor contains two cores, and a quad-core processor contains four cores.
A video card, video adapter, graphics accelerator card, display adapter, or graphics card is an expansion card which generates output images to a display. Most video cards offer added functions, such as accelerated rendering of 3D scenes and 2D graphics, video capture, TV-tuner adapter, MPEG-2/MPEG-4 decoding, FireWire, light pen, TV output, or the ability to connect multiple monitors (multi-monitor). Other modern high performance video cards are used for more graphically demanding purposes, such as PC games.
A video card, also referred to as a graphics accelerator card, display adapter, graphics card, and numerous other terms, is an item of personal computer hardware whose function is to generate and output images to a display.
At the Consumer Electronics Show 2009, the SD Card Association announced the successor to SDHC. The specification of the SDXC (SD eXtended Capacity) cards allows a gross size of up to 2 TB (2,048 GB). The division into performance classes is maintained and now reaches up to 104 MB/s, 300 MB/s are planned. Microsoft's exFAT, optimized for flash memory, is often used as the file system.
Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a serial bus standard to interface devices. USB was designed to allow many peripherals to be connected using a single standardized interface socket and to improve the plug-and-play capabilities by allowing devices to be connected and disconnected without rebooting the computer (hot swapping). Other convenient features include providing power to low-consumption devices without the need for an external power supply and allowing many devices to be used without requiring manufacturer specific, individual device drivers to be installed. The Mini-B, Micro-A, Micro-B , and Micro-AB connectors are used for smaller devices such as PDAs, mobile phones or digital cameras. The Standard-A plug is approximately 4 by 12 mm, the Standard-B approximately 7 by 8 mm, and the Micro-A and Micro-B plugs approximately 2 by 7 mm.
A VGA connector as it is commonly known (other names include RGB connector, D-sub 15, mini sub D15 and mini D15) is a three-row 15 pin DE-15. There are four versions: original and DDC2 pinouts, the far older and less flexible DE-9 connector, and a Mini-VGA used for laptops. The common 15-pin VGA connector found on most video cards, computer monitors, and other devices, is almost universally called "HD-15". HD stands for "high-density", which distinguishes it from connectors having the same form factor but only 2 rows of pins. However, this connector is often incorrectly referred to as a DB-15 or HDB-15. "VGA connectors" and their associated cabling are almost always used solely to carry analog component RGBHV (red - green - blue - horizontal sync - vertical sync) video signals along with DDC2 digital clock and data. Where size is a constraint (such as laptops) a mini-VGA port can sometimes be found in place of the full-sized VGA connector.

The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. It represents a digital alternative to consumer analog standards such as Radio Frequency (RF) coaxial cable, composite video, S-Video, SCART, component video, D-Terminal, and VGA.
Network connection allows connection to an internal or external network.
All network connectivity bluetooth, infrared ports, WLAN, UMTS etc. Standards are listed here as well.
The new 802.11ac standard is to be adopted in 2013. The main advantage over 802.11n is the faster data transmission with a gross data rate of up to 6900 Mbps. Net, however, good devices achieve three times as many as 3-stream MiMO devices. Data transmission is exclusively in the 5 GHz band and requires a larger channel width of 80 MHz, optionally a channel width of 160 MHz.
A pen (also called stylus or stylus) is the digital evolution of a conventional pen. It is used to operate touch screens and is particularly useful for notes and drawings.
Magnesium is a chemical element with the element symbol Mg (alchemy: ⚩) and the atomic number 12. In the periodic table it is in the second main group and thus belongs to the alkaline earth metals. It has two outer electrons (valence electrons), which determines the chemistry of magnesium. As the eighth most abundant element, it accounts for about 1.94% of the earth's crust.
