Won­der­ing what’s new in PCs? The range known as ‘Mod­ern PC’ is a new col­lec­tion of Win­dows 10 lap­tops that in­cor­po­rates four new tech­nolo­gies to power on when you do.

They all have the lat­est sixth gen­er­a­tion of In­tel core pro­ces­sors mak­ing them 200% faster than a five-year-old PC. Solid State Drives make the Mod­ern PC lap­tops quick and ef­fi­cient with al­most in­stant start and re­sume, with light­ning-fast load times.

The Mod­ern PC has 8-hour bat­tery life mak­ing it the per­fect lightweight lap­top for work or school. Ex­plore new things with just a touch of a fin­ger. Win­dows 10 is the lat­est soft­ware which was built for you to cre­ate, draw and ex­plore. The Mod­ern PC will give you an ex­pe­ri­ence out of this world at a price that’s down to earth.

“I love SSD drives for lots of rea­sons,” said Ben Handy from Har­vey Nor­man Ip­swich. “Tra­di­tional hard drives which have been used in con­ven­tional lap­tops for­ever, spin at around 5000 ro­ta­tions per minute, with a nee­dle to read the in­for­ma­tion.

“Un­for­tu­nately the in­for­ma­tion doesn’t get stored on the hard drive like the old records, and sin­gle files get bro­ken up into smaller sizes then get saved in var­i­ous parts of the hard drive.

“With SSD’s the process is much sim­pler and faster. An SSD has no mov­ing parts and the in­for­ma­tion gets saved fill­ing up from the start. Plus there is never any need to de­frag an SSD hard drive. They do not slow down, no mat­ter how much info is stored on them.

“The boot up time is 2-3 sec­onds rather than 10-20 sec­onds and the com­puter op­er­ates more ef­fi­ciently as well. Due to the hard drive hav­ing no mov­ing parts, the bat­tery life is ex­tended and your in­for­ma­tion is more se­cure be­cause of the hard drive be­ing less dam­age­able.”

Ben says while they have been over­shad­owed by tablet PCs for a few years, lap­top tech­nol­ogy has peo­ple re­turn­ing to lap­tops for a por­ta­ble PC. “Lap­tops are once again go­ing to take over tablets be­cause lap­tops or “mod­ern PCs” are quite of­ten con­vert­ible and can flip over or de­tach to be­come a tablet.”

Mod­ern PC lap­tops are quick and ef­fi­cient.
