Colorful yellow laptops have a distinct complementary value for a wide range of fashions and styles. People find it just plain hard to not see the cheerful benefits of yellow laptops which seem to have the power to brighten up practically any day during any time of the year.
Colorful laptop computers today deliver some pretty serious levels of power and performance capabilities from hardware components such as large hard drives, fast multi-core processors, tons of memory, HDMI outputs and various media slots. Much of this is found in laptops which are mid-level as well as the much more expensive higher end models. However yellow laptops can be a bit more elusive to find than other colors.
It is quite common in many fields for portable computers to run highly resource intensive multimedia editing applications. Most of the major laptop computer manufacturers have designed several colorful laptop models, less frequently yellow though, and there is good reason for this. Traditionally laptops were offered in a very limited selection of colors, and people simply wanted more of a choice. The main distinction from the ordinary black, silver or gray laptops of the past is in today’s bright and cheery colorful laptops.
While laptops provide portability and mobility, the fact is that today they offer all the power of their desktop counter parts in many instances. The combination of colorful designs and high level performance is nothing new though. For example the Dell Inspiron 1720 is a wonderful, bright sunshine yellow laptop which at the time of its release had many cutting edge features. As technology advanced, other laptops have integrated similar impressive features, and built upon them, which you can find on most manufacturer’s colored laptops today. This is basically a normal evolutionary process, and there are typically several laptop technology advancements released during each year.
One popular add-on to this computer is having access to free ATSC high-definition TV content. With the original sunshine yellow Dell Inspiron 1720 we reviewed, this was possible using the AVerTV Hybrid NanoExpress which is a portable TV tuner that plugs into your ExpressCard slot in a very seamless fashion. In other words, nothing sticks out from the side-slot making the tuner virtually integrated into the laptop. This is also possible with nearly any laptop which has an ExpressCard slot. From the perspective of a road warrior, the 17 inch WXGA+ Anti-Glare laptop screen with a resolution of 1920×1200 can be a perfect compliment to the free ATSC high-definition TV content because it is full size, yet still portable enough to travel with. Additionally we noted the integrated 2.0 megapixel Creative webcam which rotates, pans, and tracks your face automatically, making this not only a superior multimedia entertainment machine, but a great multimedia communications device as well.
However, Dell has not been the only manufacturer making great yellow laptops like this over the last several years. Generally speaking, each make and model provided by the various portable computer manufacturers will have very similar configurations for each given time period. For example when Intel has a popular processor line, you will find variations of it in many laptops at that time.
More current yellow laptops today are delivering a wide choice between smaller netbooks, and larger, more powerful models keeping in the tradition of the previously reviewed Dell Inspiron. Take the ASUS VX1 for instance, and note the similarities. The Dell was designed around the 1.5GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T5250. The ASUS yellow laptop is designed around the Intel Core 2 Duo T7400 processor clocking in at 2.16GHz. The latest trend does however appear to be moving more towards the compact sizes though, as this model offers a 15 inch SXGA+ TFT LCD with a 1400×1050 native resolution versus the 17″ Dell Inspiron.
While the smaller laptops are able to provide comparable performance to some of the larger models designed only a few years ago, it is the netbooks which have shown the most progress from their original incarnations.
For example the Samsung N150 yellow netbook is a good representation of the typical components found in the common 10.1″ netbook computers. The Intel Atom processor is by far the most common processor in these small laptop computers. The speed is generally in the 1.66GHz range in similar netbooks in this class. The differences in the software packages which come installed on these are what tend to differentiate the similar laptops from various manufacturers. However, even in the netbook class (subcompact notebook), the yellow laptops do still remain less common than many of the other colors.
