Frag Mossberg: Soll ich auf Windows 8 umsteigen?

dapd

Würden Sie empfehlen einen Desktop-PC, auf dem derzeit Windows Vista installiert ist, auf Windows 8 zu aktualisieren?

Ich empfehle keinen PC auf Windows 8 zu aktualisieren, der älter ist als zwei Jahre, besonders, wenn Sie Ihre Dateien und Programme erhalten wollen. Wenn auf dem PC noch Vista läuft, das vor sechs Jahren herauskam, ist er vermutlich zu alt für einen reibungslosen Betrieb mit Windows 8. Sie können aber selbst prüfen, ob Ihr PC geeignet ist. Laden sie dazu von Microsoft den kostenlosen Upgrade-Assistenten herunter und führen ihn aus. Außerdem sollten sie die Website ihres PC-Herstellers für den Kundensupport danach durchforsten, ob ihr Gerät ein Upgrade unterstützt.

Ist die Kapazität beim iPad unbegrenzt? Ich habe mein iPad drei Jahre und regelmäßig E-Mails gelöscht. Gibt es eine maximale Kapazität und wenn ja, wie soll ich damit umgehen?

Auch das iPad hat einen begrenzten Speicher. Bei einigen Funktionen wie E-Mail und Kalender können Sie in den Einstellungen bestimmen, wie viel Daten gespeichert werden sollen, indem Sie die Zahl der Mails festlegen, die pro Konto maximal gespeichert werden sollen oder indem sie die Zeit bestimmen, wie weit zurück der Kalender sich synchronisieren soll.

Wenn Sie bei ihrem iPad an die Kapazitätsgrenze stoßen, müssen Sie einige Apps, Fotos, Videos oder andere Inhalte löschen. Sie können aber jederzeit prüfen, wie viel freie Speicherkapazität ihr Gerät noch hat: Gehen Sie dazu auf die Einstellungen, dann zum Menüpunkt Allgemein und dann auf „Info“.

    • mein PC ist baujehr 2004. Windows8 lauft reibungslos. habe ne logitech maus fue W8 gekauft.Super

    • Ist die Kapazität beim Pad unbegrenzt? Ich habe mein Pad drei Jahre und regelmäßig gewaschen. Gibt es eine maximale Kapazität und wenn ja, wie soll ich damit umgehen?

      PS. Da ich weiblich und FDP Mitglied bin, fällt dieser Beitrag sicher nicht unter die Sexismusdebatte.

    • Apple ist eine Kapazität auf dem Gebiet der Computer- und Heimelektronikherstellung. Somit können Sie davon ausgehen das seine Kapazität unbegrenzt ist.

      Ausserdem verfügt das iPad über ein kapazitives Display welches über eine unbegrenzte Anzahl von Pixeln unbegrenzt betoucht werden kann. Weiterhin verfügt Ihr Akku über unbegrenzte Kapazität und als Schmankerl gibt es seit kurzen das iPad mit, ich zitiere, Riesenspeicher.

      Sollten sie also wirklich, was bei einem Applegerät eigentlich mit an Wahrscheinlichkeit grenzender Sicherheit unmöglich ist, an die Kapazitätsgrenzen ihres iPad stossen, bliebe Ihnen immer noch ein kostengünstiger Wechsel zum RiesenspeicheriPad mit himmlischer Kapazitätsgarantie.

    • Ich bin schon umgestiegen und bin sehr zufrieden.
