The laptops are really popular these days, and this is thanks to their big advantage – the portability. A laptop is small and light enough to be easily carried around when traveling, and it can also work with a battery, so no power source is required. So this means that you can do all your favorite computer activities wherever you want, and thanks to the wireless technology you can also browse the internet from about any place you want.
No matter if you are using a computer or a laptop, you definitely need to have a firewall on your computer, in case you often access the internet. A firewall is a part of a computer system that is made to block unauthorized access. But in the same time it permits authorized communication. Usually the new versions of the Windows operating system have an included firewall, but you can also buy and install some other firewall software.
