Laptop Buying Guide
笔记本选购指南


from Josh Norem, Digital Trends


Purchasing a notebook computer can be a difficult experience. It requires that you not only accurately assess your current needs, but also what your needs will be in a few years. In our opinion, your current needs trump those of your future self, and by knowing the ins and outs of today’s technology, you’re more likely to be satisfied with your purchase – and better off in the future. Let’s run down the important aspects of today’s laptop.

  买一台笔记本电脑也许会是一次艰难的经历。 需要不但准确地评估你出当前的需求,而且还有几年后的需求。在我们看来你目前的需求应该胜过未来需求。了解当今科技的细节,你就更可能对自己的购买满意--在将来也会更好。 现在让我么看看当今笔记本的各个重要方面吧:

Screen Size
屏幕尺寸


In our opinion this is the single most important specification to take into consideration. It has a ripple effect on every other aspect of a notebook, including its size, weight, and battery life. Ultimately, it goes to the very core of the notebook’s purpose in life. Screen sizes can range in size from 5 inches in your ultra-portable or ultra-mobile personal computer system, up to 17 inches. The larger the screen size, the larger (and thus heavier) the system will be.

  我们认为这是要考虑的最重要的一个细节。 屏幕尺寸对一台笔记本的其它方面都有会有影响,就包括:大小、重量和电池寿命。 最终,它和和笔记本生命目标核心有关。 屏幕尺寸大从超便携或超移动型的5寸一直到17寸。 屏幕越大,那么整机就越大(从而也就越重)。

Ultra-portable
超便携型


If you have ever traveled with a notebook, you know how a heavy notebook can be a pain. Thus, if you are going to be moving the notebook around a lot, you want an ultra-portable, which typically have screen sizes of either 12.1 inches or 13.3 inches and weigh 3 pounds or less, give or take a pound. Notable standouts include the new Macbook Air, Dell XPS 1330, HP 2510p and the Lenovo Thinkpad X series.

  如果你带着笔记本出行过,那么就会知道一台重笔记本会是一个麻烦。因此,如果你要带着笔记本四处奔走,那么你希望有一台超便携型;这种笔记本通常屏幕大小为12.1英尺或13.3英尺;重量不超过3磅。 一些出众的有苹果的Macbook Air;戴尔的Dell XPS 1330、惠普的HP 2510p及联想Thinkpad X系列。

Semi-portable
中等程度便携型


If you might take your notebook with you occasionally, but will most likely keep it on your desk and plugged in most of the time, your best bet is a mid-size 15.4-inch notebook. These notebooks are middle-of-the-road in every regard, including price, weight, battery life, and performance. There isn’t a particular stand-out model, as every vendor makes a 15.4 inch notebook.

  如果有时候你要随身带着笔记本,但是大部分时候是把它放在桌上插上电源,那么最要就是大小中等,屏幕为15.4英尺的笔记本。这些笔记本在各个方面都是”中等“,包括:价格、重量、电池寿命和性能表现。 没有特别出众的品牌,每个笔记本生产商都制造15.4英尺的笔记本。

Desktop Replacement
取代桌面电脑的笔记本


Ah yes, the Ferraris of notebooks: just as expensive and about as practical. Desktop replacement notebooks ignore all the typical considerations for a notebook including size, weight, battery life, cost, thermal output, and portability. While these notebooks offer performance similar to – and possibly even better than – a decent desktop, they are heavy, run super hot, and have a poor battery life. These notebooks have massive screens that are either 17 inches, or in some cases 19 or 20 inches. It should be noted that the term "desktop replacement" is not synonymous with “gaming notebook,” though desktop replacements typically have far greater gaming power than smaller notebooks. Notable offerings in this category include the Alienware Area-51 m-9750, Gateway’s P-171XL FX and the HP HDX and Dell’s XPS 1730.

  对了,笔记本中的法拉利:它们都一样贵一样实际。取代桌面电脑的笔记本会忽略一些通常笔记本的考虑,包括:大小、重量、电池寿命、成本、散热量和便携性。虽然这些笔记本提供的性能和不错的台式机相当--或者更好,但是它们同时很笨重,散热大户,而且电池寿命也不好。这些笔记本有超大屏幕--17,有时候19或20英寸。要指出的是”台式机取代笔记本“和”游戏笔记本“不是同一个概念,尽管前者往往比那些小型笔记本的运行游戏能力要好得多。 这一领域的著名品牌有Alienware Area-51 m-9750, Gateway’s P-171XL FX 、HP HDX 和戴尔的 XPS 1730.

Widescreen or Standard?
选择宽屏还是标准?


The majority of today’s notebooks include a widescreen display that has an aspect ratio of 16:10 – like a movie screen. This is notably different from the older 4:3 ratio that was square, like an old TV set. Though it’s up to you to decide which format you prefer, the standard aspect ratio notebooks are becoming more difficult to find due to the benefits of a widescreen display. Not only are widescreen displays better for watching movies, they allow manufacturers to increase screen real estate by just making the notebook a smidge wider rather than taller, which is preferable to most people.

  当今笔记本过半都是宽屏;它显示的比例为16:10--就如同电影屏幕一样。 这一点和过去4:3比例方形和老式电视机比起来有显著不同。 虽然由你决定更喜欢哪一种,由于宽屏的优点,标准比例(4:3)的笔记本越来越难以找到了。 不但宽屏更适应看电影,而且制造商只要把笔记本稍微做地更宽一点就能增加屏幕输出区面积,这是受到多数人欢迎的。
