Questions and Answers
Windows 10 Pro
Windows 10 Pro is a sophisticated business operating system featuring an expanded Start menu, enhanced encryption technology with BitLocker for data protection and security management. Virtual machine capability enables you to run more than one operating system on a single PC, and remote log-in gives you access to your work while at home or on the road.
Like Windows 10, Windows 10 Pro combines the best elements of the Windows you already know, like the Start menu, with new features allowing space to pin your favorite apps and easy navigation so you’ll feel right at home. Getting set up is faster and easier so you can get right to work or enjoy exploring the Windows App Store games or a new version of Office. InstantGo quickly boots up or resumes Windows while enhancements help balance memory and processor resources for maximum efficiency and Battery Saver automatically conserves power. Windows 10 also offers more built-in security features improving protection against viruses, phishing, and malware.
Solid State Drive
More reliable and significantly faster than traditional spinning-platter hardrives, solid state drives work more like a large flash drive giving you quick access to your data. With no moving parts generating heat, solid state drives use less power and keep your system cooler which helps reduce component failure. Light weight and durable, solid state drives are often found in portable devices since they are less prone to travel damage and accidents like being dropped.
Double Data Rate, which is the DDR in DDR4, tells us something about the rate of data transfer in a given type of memory. The first number, as in DDR4, tells us the generation of the memory. DDR3 was the previous generation, DDR4 is the current generation. DDR4 offers faster data transfer rates than its predecessor. The second numeric value as inDDR4-1600- or DDR4-2666 is the speed. Memory type and speed must be matched to the requirements of your computer.
DDR4 has improved function compared with DDR3, in that it offers faster data transfer rates, It has more memory banks giving it increased capacity. It also requires less energy so it is more power efficient. The more capacity and the faster the speed, the better your memory is able to keep up with today’s multi-core processors.
DDR form factors designate what they are used for. The DIMM form factor is used in desktop systems while the SO-DIMM form factor is used for laptops and all-in-one computers because of their slim profile.
