How much storage does your Ultrabook need?
One of the knocks against today's emerging technology -- including tablet computers, smartphones and Ultrabooks -- is the limited onboard storage that these devices provide. Most tablets and Ultrabook™ computers offer anywhere between 64GB and 256GB of storage, which seems fairly minuscule compared to the robust hard drives that people have become accustomed to.
But what many people might not realize is that onboard storage is not as pressing of an issue as in years past. The advent of cloud computing offers an alternative means of storing data, allowing users to keep their files on hosted servers rather than hard drives or removable media.
With the cloud, Ultrabook users do not have to worry about cluttering their hard drives with gigs of music, video and other files. This will not only ensure that spare room is available at a moment's notice, it will also help the computer run at peak efficiency.
One of the greatest benefits of the cloud is its scalability. While physical hard drives are limited to one size without a hardware upgrade, cloud services can be instantly shifted to meet the user's immediate needs.
Though potential Ultrabook buyers may be worried about moving away from what they're already familiar with, many will find that rather than sacrifice usability, the Ultrabook actually opens channels to developing computing trends that are sure to remain prevalent moving forward.
