what is a notebook?
So you’re wondering what a notebook is… Well, there are two correct answers to that question! The first type, and one that still commonly exists today, is basically a pad of paper that is bound on one side to make a little book! The second kind, has now become more or less interchangeable with the laptop. At they most basic level they can perform a similar function of storing information, but that is about where the similarities end.
A paper notebook is several sheets of paper, oftentimes ruled for writing purposes and bound into a small book to hold them together. While much less technical than a laptop they are still incredibly popular and widely used. Electronic notebooks are constantly advancing and becoming more and more powerful each year!
Notebook computers were initially introduced in 1988 to allow for a small, lightweight personal computer that could easily fit in a briefcase and be used remotely. At their introduction a lot of power and computing ability was sacrificed for the size. Fast forward to today and the modern notebook is essentially the same as a laptop (which has come down in size significantly). The modern version is quite a powerful device and found in nearly every office around nowadays!
