    Microsoft Surface Laptop Overview, Specs and Colors (With Pictures)

    Looking for a high-performance laptop at an affordable price? Microsoft has come out with the all new Surface Laptops recently. The specifications of these laptops are mind-blowing and have amazing features along with an immense variety of color choices. There are four variants of Surface Laptops which are launched. A video uploaded on YouTube graphically represents the elegance of the Surface Laptops. So lets us take a look at all the amazing features, their configurations, and their pricing.

    #1 The basic elements in all the four variants are:

    The whole Microsoft Surface lineup is known to be built perfectly and to stand out from the others and so does the Microsoft Surface Laptop is, It is the perfect blend of Fabric, Metal, and Plastic that can one have today in Early-Mid 2017.

    The Surface Laptop is one of the most precisely built laptops that we can see but there are always some flaws or drawbacks, but we’ll only come to know about it when we use it in our daily life.

    What about the OS? Is it the Same? NO!

    Along with the Surface laptop series, Microsoft has launched Windows 10 S version which is great for schools as it will run only programs from the Windows Store and you can’t change the default browser too! You can know more about it on Microsoft’s Official Windows 10 S Product Page

    One of the Most Important factors is the Battery! Obviously

    According to Microsoft, Surface Laptops are claimed to have a battery life of 14.5hrs of Video Playback and nothing’s mentioned about the stand-by time. But I am pretty sure that the battery life would be better because of the new Windows 10 S and a Small 13.5inch display.

    No Messing with the Built Quality here!

    These laptops can be conveniently opened using a single hand.The Screen of the Surface Laptop is touchscreen but does it have a 360-degree hinge? Well, No there isn’t any tablet or tent mode happening with this laptop. The screen has a razor-sharp resolution for photographs, videos, reports, and presentations. The Screen of the laptop looks sleeker than before and better than ever. With a 13.5” PixelSense Display which is bright and easy to read from, working outside won’t be a problem. The laptop body is covered with a compact aluminum shell for extreme portability and durability that lasts. The screen of the laptop is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which does its job efficiently.

    Metal Built
    4 Color Options
    Slim and Sleek
    TouchScreen Display
    Screen with Elegance

    The keyboard of these laptops is covered in Signature Alcantara fabric. But you don’t need to worry about it getting dirty.

    But What’s So Special About the Fabric?

    This fabric is specially designed to resist spills, so you don’t have to worry about your coffee getting spilled while you work or even those dirty hand stains won’t appear pretty soon according to Microsoft but the real truth will be known only when the real reviews roll out. Microsoft has also mentioned that the fabric can be cleaned easily too in case it gets dirty.

    Wait…Where are the Speakers? No Speakers!?

    I am happy to say that the Surface Laptops are loaded with hidden Omnisonic Speakers with radiant omnidirectional sound and Dolby Audio Premium which enhance the sound quality while listening to a song or while watching a movie, etc. And guess where the speakers are? They are under the keyboard and surprisingly they sound better than expected!

    How to Make a Minecraft Sever For FREE!

    featured_image

    Want to play Minecraft with friends on a server but don’t want to spend money? Here’s the perfect solution using Dropbox and it’s completely FREE too!

    What all will you need?

    For this tutorial to create a free Minecraft server you will need a few things to start with.

    1. Minecraft for PC
    2. A Dropbox account to upload some server files to it so that you can give other people the access to use your server files. You can create a Dropbox Account from here.
    3. The latest version of Minecraft Server jar.
    4. Hamachi to create a LAN.

    All the download links for the things you’ll need are added at the end of the post for your ease. 

    Steps to create a Minecraft Server for FREE are as follows:

    1. Download the latest Minecraft jar file from the link provided at the end of the post.
    2. Make a new folder with any random name.
    3. Copy the jar file that you’ve downloaded to the folder that you just created.
    4. Start the jar file by double clicking on it, after a while it will create new files and one of them will be a text file called “EULA“.
    5. Open the file and change “eula=false” to “eula=true“.minecraft free sever eula
    6. Now, open the jar file again and setup the server. Then a window will open that should look like the image below:

    server_pic

    Type “Stop” in the text field which is present at the bottom of the right hand and press Enter to Stop the server 

    Now, go to the server folder and right-click on the “server.properties” file. Open this file in a text editor. This is where you can customize your Minecraft Server. After opening the file in a text editor it should look like the image below:

    Setting up Dropbox for the server:

    1. Download the Dropbox application for your computer
    2. Upload all the contents of the server folder to Dropbox.
    3. Now share the credentials (username and password) of this Dropbox account with your friends.

    Whenever you are playing alone, you can fire up the server right from the Dropbox folder and connect to your server.

    But there’s a catch,

    Dropbox will be able to handle one game editing the server folder but complexities occur when two people are editing the server folder at the same time. Read further if you want to play with your friends in real-time via hamachi.

    Playing Minecraft Multiplayer in real-time using Hamachi:

    1. To play with your friends in real-time, you will have to Download Hamachi (Link is provided at the end of the post).
    2. Hamachi allows you to Create Virtual LAN and thus port forwarding is not needed.hamachi
    3. Click on “Create a network” and tell your friends to “Join the network”.
    4. Start the server from Dropbox.
    5. Ask your friends to join the Minecraft server from the game.

    You should know this before you start playing,

    Only one person has to run the server, other people will join the server from the game itself by scanning games running on the LAN. 

    Download links: 

    Dropbox For PC Minecraft Server jar Hamachi

    This way you can easily create a Minecraft server for free and enjoy Minecraft Multiplayer without having to worry about hassle. Let us know below in the comments section about any issue you are facing.
