What is a laptop?

We live in a world where technology has become a part of life: we have broken the distance, extended the time frame, allowed a person to speed up his actions and the development of possibilities.

The Internet and computer have become the coveted "households". But the computer has evolved and from a large "bandura" began to turn into a more convenient to use and carry technical novelty. In other words, we can now easily get ourselves a netbook, laptop, tablet, etc. They are much more convenient, portable and become more powerful and functional.

What does all this have to do with a laptop, you say. But let me tell you about the origin of the word, and everything will be immediately clear to you.

The laptop is a word for the English passage: lap is the lap of the person sitting, top is the top, the surface is the laptop. This word in the modern world is applicable to smartbooks, laptops, netbooks. Those. This computer and its close relatives, made in a folding-folding form, which can be put on his knees.

I think it’s clear to you now what a laptop is.
