For many, their computer is an important source of information and entertainment.  We have our music, photos, videos and more, many of which took a long time to accumulate.  This means that everyone has something to lose on their computer.  Precious moments, especially photos and important work documents should always be backed up.  When should you do it?  How about right now?

Seriously. There is no better time to back up your important files other than now.  You never know when you might download a bad e-mail, spill water on your computer, or your hard drive simply seizes up.  At Abt Electronics, we have what you need to make sure your important files will be saved, safe and soundly.  Check out our variety of external hard drives that will be the second home to all your important items!

Which Computer Do You Need For School?

Back To School At Abt

It’s that time of year again, summer is winding down and the return of the school year is just around the corner.  All students know to have the essentials ready: a backpack, writing supplies, and books.  But there’s one school supply everyone loves to have: a new computer.  Here at Abt Electronics we have a large supply of laptops, desktops and computer accessories in our Connect store.  To make shopping a bit easier for you, we’ve narrowed down the best of the best.

Laptop: Boasting a 16’’ TrueBrite HD screen, the Toshiba model A665S6056 is our favorite laptop.  With a Dual-Core processor, this computer allows you to multi-task with ease.  Other features include a web-cam built in the monitor, a CD/DVD reader/burner and an HDMI port for easy connectivity to TVs and monitors. For those eco-conscious students, it’s Energy Star compliant and will adjust settings automatically getting the most out of your power consumption.

Desktop: If you plan on doing most of your work in a dorm or an office, you may want to invest in a desktop computer.  For our selection, we prefer the Hewlett Packard Pavilion Elite HPE210F.  With a powerful 3GZ AMD Phenom quad-core processor, 8 GB of RAM, 1 Terabyte of memory, Blu-ray player and an impressive 512 MB ATI Radeon HD graphics card, you can multi task your work while blasting away aliens or watching your favorite movie.

Software: The most popular computer software is Microsoft Office: Home and Student.  This software has everything a student needs: Word, PowerPoint, Excel and Entourage.  All are important tools for writing documents, keeping spreadsheets and creating presentations.

Accessories: Our salespeople couldn’t come to an agreement on just one favorite accessory, which is why they settled on both the Kenneth Cole laptop bags and any size External Hard Drive.  We carry a wide selection of fashionable Kenneth Cole laptop cases for students to protect their investment.  The external hard drives are also an important accessory when it comes to backing up important documents, projects and even keeping a library of music safe and secure.

For more information on our favorites or, to ask about our entire line of computers and accessories, call us at 888-288-5800.
