Book Review: Upgrading and Repairing Laptops
- — 27 July, 2004 13:42
From Scott Mueller — the author who so far has brought us 15 editions of Upgrading and Repairing PCs — inevitably comes a technical manual dedicated to the notebook computer. This book is much like an encyclopedia for notebook computers in that it also covers all that there is to know about the history of portable computers and the different types of notebooks that have been available since the 1980s.
Every single aspect of a notebook computer is talked about in good detail, right up to the different DVD writing standards and latest wireless networking equipment. The major focus is on keeping your notebook in tip-top condition via good maintenance procedures.
Plenty of tables and diagrams are provided for reference, and the glossary is a very handy appendix for new and even experienced techies. Users who want a deeper understanding of the way components in a notebook work and how they fit together will appreciate this book greatly.
It will also make an interesting read for the user who wants to learn more about the history of the portable and notebook computer markets.
