Laptop computers have been using the Internet for as long as the Internet has existed, but laptops have always had a strange place for many people. While they are often slower than desktops, they are generally not seen as convenient to the level that cell phones are. However, with a wireless air card laptops have the ability to become the best of both worlds — as convenient as they are powerful.
The Myth Of The Weak Laptop
Many people have traditionally viewed laptops as being somehow inferior to desktop computers. Laptops are seen as being slower, more prone to hardware failure, being more expensive and not being as able to handle more advanced tasks as desktop computers are. As untrue as these thoughts are, a lot of people continue to have them. Laptops continue to not receive the respect they are due from much of the computing community. As undeserved as this reputation for inferiority is, laptops continue to receive it. This also contributes to many workplace cultures that attempt to use laptops as desktops, as if being in a fixed location somehow makes a computer more effective at what its user wants to do.
However, the location of a computer’s use does nothing to add to or detract from its overall effectiveness. Using a wireless air card, one can access the Internet with virtually the same speed as the fastest fixed point wifi or wired connection without having to be in a fixed location. This can contribute greatly to one’s ability to get work done, or simply expand an experience by recording it for posterity. Laptops can accomplish a lot of things that desktops cannot, and the computing world is increasingly faced with this fact now that air cards are more commonplace.
The notion that a full sized computing device such as a laptop is in some way inconvenient is often purported by people who love their cell phones. While a laptop will not fit into your pocket and cannot be as easily “whipped out” at a moment’s notice, there are many ways in which a laptop’s convenience will actually trump that of even the best and smartest of phones. For one thing, a laptop’s screen and keyboard are far more conducive to the experience of producing content and reviewing it properly. With the ability to produce, particularly “in the field,” comes a great deal of convenience. While a phone may be faster, phones are not conducive to producing powerpoint presentations or designing buildings.
Accessing The Internet, Anywhere
The use of M2M technology is what makes any kind of large scale network a reality instead of just a dream. With machine to machine networks, an almost unlimited number of devices can connect to, recognize and work with one another. In this way, accessing the Internet becomes possible through a wireless air card because a device can connect quickly and with very little in the way of user involvement. All a device has to do is receive, interpret and send signals, and it is recognized by the other devices in the network.
Productivity And Enjoyment
How much can you produce on the go, and how much content can you enjoy? The answer is essentially limited by how much you want and how quickly you can personally open content or create it. With a laptop and a wireless air card to connect to the Internet, your options on where and what you can produce or enjoy are virtually limitless.
Networks and laptops may seem banal, but the technology that powers them is vast. This technology lets you do a lot.
