What Is an SSD?
When it comes down to it, solid state drives are effectively a big USB pen with a different connector.

Tired of using a laptop and having to view things in 2D? Then you’ll want to hear about Maingear’s latest announcement: the eX-L 17 3D. While the other numbers may not mean much at first glance, the label 3D is enough to make anyone curious.
As the name implies, the laptop is 3D ready, courtesy of Nvidia. Of course, this means that you will also need Nvidia’s 3D glasses. With everything from movies to games to TV shows going 3D these days, this kind of laptop just might become more common in the near future.
The eX-L 17 3D is not all about being 3D ready, though. It does have more to offer than that capability. Primarily being marketed as a gaming machine – Maingear actually describes it as a “wickedly fast mobile gaming” laptop – the eX-L 17 3D makes use of the latest 32nm second generation Core i7 quad core processors. And there is more – the processor is overclocked at 4.8GHz! (Men: make sure you don’t spend too much time with the laptop on your laps if you want to have children in the future!)
The screen of the eX-L 17 3D is 17.3 inches, huge enough for those who want the ultimate gaming experience. It also has Nvidia’s GeForce GTX485M graphics card – which is responsible for the 3D capabilities. As for power, the processor needs up to 55 watts. The laptop comes with an 8-cell battery and weighs a whopping 8.6 pounds (3.9 kilos).
How much will this big baby set you back? Nothing less than $2,659 for the basic configuration. Maingear allows you to build your own laptop, and depending on your preferences, you can go up to $8,000! Even if you’re not planning to blow that much on a 3D gaming laptop, it’s nice to dream. Here’s Maingear’s page to customize the eX-L 17 3D.
Before you set foot on your travel escapades, make sure you are ready with your calling cards. Never go out of town without any prepaid phone card in hand. Prepaid phone cards make long distance calls more affordable and practical. If you have a card, you can make a call anytime and anywhere you want. You no longer have to rush to the nearest public phone booth to call for emergency purposes or to catch up with family members and friends left at home. Calling through phone cards is much cheaper compared to making long distance calls from your hotel room. Phone cards are available both for domestic and international calls.
If you are in an international trip, it is best to purchase international calling cards. Make sure you know the rates and fees of the international calling card you will buy. Different international calling cards usually apply different rates and fees. Some international phone cards charge connection fees for every call and maintenance fees either weekly or monthly. International phone cards usually come with a personal identification number (PIN) that the user can use to get access to the network and to make both international and domestic calls. It is also advisable to inquire about promos so you can make more calls with your international phone cards.
