Good number of low cost Cabinets will come with SMPS but we break them and make separate entries like "cabinet without smps" and "smps" so that the customer has a choice of picking cabinet of one brand and smps of another. This is significant since in good number of cases the default smps which comes with cabinet is not good enough. You can decide the quality and model of smps separately - you may select the default one also if you wish.
For example, you may select an iball cabinet and corsair smps for your computer.
Any PC, Laptop or Desktop, is basically a Computing Gadget. This Gadget takes Input - Process it - and Gives Output. This Flow of Input - Processing - Output is Cyclic and The Entire Process Rotates Millions of Times within a matter of Few Seconds. Components that play the main role in this process are - CPU RAM and HDD (or SSD if available).
The CPU and RAM work at extremely high speeds as compared to HDD which makes the Entire Flow of DATA in The Process halts (or slow downs ) when HDD's Turn comes to play it's role. At times, such tasks even que up for HDD to process it.
SSD is about 10-12 times faster than HDD. Performance SSD may go as high as 20 or more times faster than a standard HDD. Thus If you replace HDD with SSD - The Whole process picks up momentum dramatically. This increases The Overall Performance of Any Desktop or Laptop by around 2-4 Times.
CPU Uses Ram to Communicate Which file is Required from HDD and HDD fetches that files and gives it to CPU. Most of such files sought by CPU are related with the operating system (windows or linux) or application software ( MS Office, Photoshop etc.).
In Case, You have SSD in The PC or The Laptop, It shall be configured as primary storage ( C: Drive ) - which is the default location of - all operating system and application software files.
You can have SSD and HDD together in any PC - You can have more than One of both of them also.
You may consider to buy one Grade Lower CPU and ADD at least ONE SSD of even the lowest capacity AND You will find the overall performance of The PC or Laptop better than The Two Three Grades Higher CPU with HDD combination. for example, i3+SSD may perform better than i5+SSD for the purpose of understanding.
We will upgrade the laptop and deliver it to you duly upgraded as per your requirement. Just let us know what you want it to be upgraded for. You may use "Order Comment Text Box" in The Checkout Page and let us know the details. We will modify the order accordingly and on your approval we will take the process forward.
Windows, Dos or Ubuntu are basically operating systems, software part of the laptop. It is just that Genuine Windows Come at a Price ( say around Rs.5000) So Laptops with Windows Pre-loaded are a few thousands more expensive than the laptops which do not come with windows pre-loaded.
You may buy Dos / Ubuntu Laptops and Load Windows that you might already have, this way you may save some cost. However, Buying a laptop with pre-loaded windows may save you those 30 minutes that it takes to do the job.
And If your application is not that dependent on Windows platform you may be okay using Ubuntu ( or any other linux based OS ) as well and that way you may save some cost plus simultaneously say good bye to Bill Gates.
In Short, Any laptop is compatible with Any Operating System. Buy Any Laptop and If pre-loaded operating system is not what you want, Change it to your requirement.

Generation in Context of Computer CPU or Microprocessor
Research and Development is a continuous process for the microprocessor chip makers, mainly Intel and AMD. The Architecture and Capabilities hence achieved are Packaged and Released as New Version called Generation. One Generation consist of Work of 2-3 years which generally released as The Next Generation which is generally a numeral.
Currently, as of June 2016 - Most AMD CPU Models are Running 6th Generation while Intel has released 6th Generation CPU Range in Last Quarter of 2015.
Whenever you buy a desktop or a Laptop, It is always recommended to buy Latest Generation CPU Based Model so that You take advantage of The Development and Progress of The Technology even if you have to spend 20-30% extra for the same. Buying Older Generation CPU Based Laptop or Desktop is Like Buying Already Outdated Technology Today, which has already phased out and is not up-to-date.

There are several steps you can take to help you get maximum performance from your laptop battery:
Prevent the Memory Effect - Keep the laptop battery healthy by fully charging and then fully discharging it at least once every two to three weeks. Exceptions to the rule are Li-Ion batteries which do not suffer from the memory effect.
Keep the laptop Batteries Clean - It's a good idea to clean dirty battery contacts with a cotton swab and alcohol. This helps maintain a good connection between the battery and the portable device.
Exercise the Battery - Do not leave the battery dormant for long periods of time. We recommend using the battery at least once every two to three weeks.
Battery Storage - If you don't plan on using the laptop battery for a month or more, store it in a clean, dry, cool place away from heat and metal objects. NiCad, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries will self-discharge during storage; remember to recharge the batteries before use.

An Ultrabook is a technically higher-end type of a netbook based on new concept by intel.
Ultrabooks are designed to feature reduced size, less than 2.1 cm -0.82 inches- thick and weight usually less than 1.5 kg or 3.3 lbs without compromising performance and battery life. They use low-power Intel processors with integrated graphics and unibody chassis to fit larger batteries into smaller cases.
When it comes to a Scanner or a AIO/multifunction printer (MFP) to meet your scanning needs, you can ask one basic question that will help you to decide - "What are you scanning" ?
Generally, the items on scanning to-do list will determine why you shall require a Scanner. If your need to scan multi-page documents or two-sided documents on a regular basis, as most accounting, Telecom, Banking, Insurance, Audit firms do, a dedicated document scanner is a must choice. Although it's easy to find MFPs with automatic document feeders, its lacks scanning both sides of a page at the same time, or scan as quickly as a document scanner ( Like SJ 7500, SJ 8270, SJ 9120, SJ 6350).
Other considerations would be:
* If the need is for volume scan output( Anything beyond 100 pages per day) you should consider DMS scanner( Like SJ7000,SJ7500, SJ8270,SJ 9000,SJ9120) which is designed to meet high volume document scanning. MFP's perform much slow scanning in compare to a dedicated DMS scanner.
* If the need is to scan transparencies, your best bet is a film scanner or a flatbed photo scanner with a transparency adaptor(SJ 4010,4050,8300).
* If the need is to scan high resolution image, the best bet is Photo scanner (Like SJ 8300, SJ 4010, SJ4050). MFP's lacks in scanning high resolution images.
Yes, We do it. You may ask us to assemble the pc and ship and you can start working on it immediately on arrival, out of the box. If you are in Bangalore, You may see it getting assembled as well, in front of you.
That will be a learning experience as well, so when next time you want to add another Memory Chip, You can just do it yourself in few minutes.
We have our own delivery network for Bangalore and utilize various Couriers, Transporters, logistic Operators for rest of India. You may tell us your preferred medium through "Order Comment" Box in Checkout Page.
Generally, You get the Latest Version of the product within a reasonable time of it's launch, however, confirming it is always safer to avoid any confusion at any later point.
You May Place an order with the product selected from the web store and specify YOUR Desired Version. We will ensure the product we ship matches with your requirement.
Confirming casually beforehand using comments or otherwise can be avoided, since these finer details are prone to mishandling and misunderstanding - must be handled in a set protocol and only when you are ready to buy if requirements match.
It also creates unrelated data between version mentioned in comments and products actual current version.
Shipping Service takes about 1-2 days for Metros, 2-4 days for Major cities while Towns and Villages take few additional days depending on the location and proximity of the nearest City.
This Answer has Two Perspectives --
2. For Hardware Products : OEM Versions are generally the same hardware but packed in bulk to reduce the packing and shipping cost by vendors. They are preferred if you are comfortable and understand what you are buying, sure of it's authenticity and have no doubt that the product is altered or fiddled with. There is no reason to buy a retail product when OEM is cheaper since you will be removing it's packaging and then installing it anyway. At the same time, if you doubt the originality of the product or if you do not trust the vendor, it is better that you go for Retail Box product only.

Kindly submit the products you don't find on website using "Hunted Products" link on your left. Stock Query could be answered quickly in a few minutes sometimes but quiet number of times it takes much longer than that. A Product May be lying in Ready Stock, or In stock with the Distributor which we can source in due course of time. Responding to a products availability status is a Process which calls special focus, resources and time and can take a few minutes to days or weeks to get a proper response, hence such special queries need specific attention which "Hunted Products" provides. Site comments, email or telephonic requests may not be that effective in such cases.
You can Refer to another FAQ if You have found the product on the website but want to know if it is in stock or not.
No for Minor Changes and Yes for Major Changes. Once You Place the order, We Lock Those Prices for you, for Minor Changes. Do not increase or decrease them if cost has little variation. But Ask You To Pay Revised Price, More or Less, if The Variation is Major.
Generally, Vendors Add Card Swipe Charges to The Price They Sell Products at. In Such a Case, Factually, You Pay Swipe Charge, Every time You Buy !! Regardless of You Remitting Cash or something else but Card. Most of them will Sell at M.R.P. so they have enough Cushion to absorb 2% Card Charge.
When You are Charged 2% when You Swipe, You Can Save it, when You want, It makes a Big Saving particularly When the Bill Value goes in Lacs. The Benefit when it is Charged Transparently is that for Small Values, You don't mind paying 2% extra and Save the same when it matters.
Most Products Work Well with Desktops and Laptops, if in doubt specifically, it is advised to visit respective brands website and check for compatibility details.
Since we Provide Most of The Products In Sealed State as we Get From The Vendor and Do Not Demonstrate them before or after you buy them. However, You Can Open the Product Box after You Buy, to ensure it is in Physically Good Condition, testing can be avoided.
In some cases, Products come with their seals open, but as a matter of Practice, We do not expect you to open them as well, before You actually made the Purchase.
This ensures, necessary manuals, CD's, cables remain intact in their respective Packaging, as they arrive from Vendors Factories.
After you place an order, we will check availability of the products, order status will change to "Availability check" and you will get an "Order Update" e-mail notifying you the order status. If All products are available you will get confirmation asking you to Transfer funds against the order - the order status will change to "Payment Awaited", followed by a notification e-mail.
This is the time you should remit funds. Reply to the e-mail you are receiving with details of the payment you have remitted. Once we receive your email, order status changes to "Payment confirmation awaited" and subsequently order statuses are "Payment Received", "Processing", "Order ready to ship", "Order shipped" and Finally "Completed".
The Best way to know the stock position of the product is by placing an order for it. When You Place The Order, You Do Not Pay until We Confirm The Stocks are available. When You Place The Order, The Order Satus Goes to "Availability Check" Status - when We Confirm Stocks are available - Order Status Changes to "Payment Awaited" - That is When You Pay for Your Order - After Confirmation of The Stocks Affirmative.
Each and Every Order is Checked for Stocks and Price before it is Due for You to Pay for it. You know exactly what you are getting, when you will get it and how much you will pay for the entire deal - Before You Pay.

You Open Your PC for a Minor Upgrade and Find Still Motherboard Led is On, it's flowing electricity !! Unplugging any component in this state could be disastrous for the component itself, other components or sometimes yourself.
It's NOT Always Enough to just power down your PC from the Start menu. Because modern systems incorporate hibernate and standby features, the memory, mainboard may still be siphoning electricity after shutdown.
Before You Open Your Cabinet for Memory, Graphics Card or any other minor Upgrade, either pull the power cord and / or flip off the power supply's switch (usually found next to the power-cord socket). Better still, do both, then wait a few seconds before working to remove / install memory or a Graphics Card etc.
Remember, You can check two physical indicators to determine when power is actually removed from the motherboard. One is the LED used to show the status of your network connection. The other, more reliable one is the power LED on the motherboard itself.
If You Get lot's of spike / surge attacks in your locality, make it a practice to remove your power cables off the PC box when not in use. And Using a spike buster is MUST, even if you have a UPS already.
Spikes and Surges Travel in Wires even when they are in Off State. Plugging them off when it is lightening or when not in use, ensures PC is not exposed to the spike's smooth passage.
If You get Mild shocks when you touch PC's outer cover, even when it is in Off State !
This most probably because of Improper Grounding. Getting it checked and fixed by a Qualified Electrician may stop this to happen.
One of the Popular ways to boost a computer's performance is to add more of RAM Chips, a simple task requiring only basic computer knowledge to open up your PC's case.
On the other hand, Extending More memory than Required is also counter productive. If 1gb memory is sufficient, 4gb seems perfect but it may in fact reduce the performance.
Before You Upgrade or Increase Memory, let us find out if you really need it.
From the Start menu, click
All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Information
Once the system-info summary appears, scroll down a bit and look for two fields:
Total Physical Memory, and Available Physical Memory
As a rule of thumb, if you're showing 300MB or less available memory, you Need Memory Upgrade.
Don't rush out to buy RAM just because you see a gap between the total memory and the amount actually available. First, See if Your Graphics is Sharing Memory or it is dedicated.
If your PC is using integrated graphics or a graphics card that shares system memory, You Can Reclaim that Memory being shared Now and install a graphics card that has its own Memory.
You'll gain performance in two ways: from the memory boost you get by recovering what was shared, and from the improved graphics system itself.
Remember You don't need a top-of-the-line graphics card. Any recent card with dedicated memory on it will work better than a shared memory arrangement.
At the Same time, Don't Buy Memory with Higher FSB than what is supported by Your Mainboard. If Your Mainboard supports 667mhz., don't go for 800mhz., even if it is cheaper than 667mhz. It may support, but at the same time, it may make system work slower than expected.
All Motherboards Now support dual-channel memory configurations. Dual-channel technology lets the PC access each of two banks of memory on successive rises and falls of the system clock, rather than only once during the entire clock cycle. That makes "One Slot is Filled with 2GB Memory Chip" Slower than "Two Slots Filled with 1GB Memory Chips" scenario.
The performance gain, while not double, is significant. So, if you have only one stick of memory installed, buy a second one of the same size and type. If you have two sticks installed, buy an additional pair.
Dual-channel operation relies on memory being placed in specific sockets on your motherboard. Even if you've tossed the motherboard manual, determining which sockets are paired is as simple as looking at them--the pairs are typically color-coded.
Sum it up, Planning Total 1GB means Install TWO NO's of 512mb
or Planning Total 2GB means Install TWO No's of 1GB
FSB Stands for Front Side Bus. This term is used with regards to the Frequency Capability of Internal Data Transfer built in the Motherboards and other components. The FSB of the Mother board and CPU Frequency should be compatible for them to work together. Mother Board with FSB of 1333 will be able to Accept a CPU with 1333 or Lesser frequency (e.g., 1066 or 800.
In General terms, Higher the Frequency - Faster the Speed, More Expensive, More Productive.
Buying a Laptop or A Desktop
is a very Important Decision that we have to make whenever we need to buy a PC. The Most Important Point that differentiates The TWO Is If You Need to move around with Your PC or It will be Kept at One Place most of the time.
If you will need or use The PC while travelling or wherever you go, then you have no choice but a Laptop. However, if the laptop will simply act as a desktop with very occasional need for portability, a desktop is The BEST choice and far less expensive.
Laptops have a great advantage in terms of their portability. If you carry a laptop with you, your applications and documents are always immediately available. With a wireless card, your laptop can also access the Internet while on the go, so you have more places to do research, check your email, and be more productive.
Desktops offer other advantages. Although laptop prices have come down and performance has increased, most desktops offer a better price-to-performance ratio. Desktops also still hold some ergonomic advantages over laptops.
Your decision should be based primarily on how you plan to use your computer and the size of your computing budget. Here are some factors to consider:
One downside of portability is ergonomics. The laptop's miniature size can make its use less comfortable and physically taxing. The desktop computer's design has evolved to ease the comfort of users. Its display is at eye level, and the keyboard allows for proper positioning of your back, arms, and wrists. These are important concerns, especially when you use your computer for long periods of time.
You can improve laptop ergonomics by building a more comfortable "home base" into which you can dock your laptop when you return to your desk. A home base can include such things as a standard keyboard, a mouse, an external display, etc.
PC desktops are approximately 1/2 the price of a comparable laptop. Although overall prices have declined, price gaps still exist largely because of the higher cost of laptop displays and the added cost of miniaturized technology. Since laptops are portable, they are more prone to accidents and abuse than desktops. And due to their size, laptops require smaller, more intricate components and more tedious labor resulting in more costly upgrades and repairs.
A laptop's small size and portability make it vulnerable to theft. Unless you can lock or secure your laptop, you should take it with you wherever you go. Security devices like cable locks and fingerprint readers are available for laptops to deter thieves.
Desktops provide less expensive, more comfortable, powerful performance to meet your computing needs from a fixed location. Laptops provide performance to meet your computing needs from virtually anywhere. Laptops cost roughly one-third more, and for additional comfort you will pay more yet for extra "home base" components. But if you want to take advantage of the portability and increased productivity offered by laptops, then the extra expense may be worth it. If portability and the extended access it provides is not important, then a desktop may make more sense.
The choice is yours. Evaluate and review your computing needs and decide what's best for you.
