Laptop Display Components
Hi there and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Laptop Display Components. At Pluralsight we have learning paths that guide you through step by step conquering a particular IT certification test. The one we're concerned with here, of course, is the CompTIA A+ (220-901), and the learning path consists of the following courses. A brief introduction to get us started, a full consideration of computer hardware, a detailed discussion of Ethernet networking, both of the wired and wireless varieties, mobile devices, which is laptops and other portable computers, and finally, troubleshooting. We have five modules in the Mobile Devices course. If you're watching these modules sequentially, then you've just come out of Laptop Hardware and Components, then we have Laptop Display Components, that's what we're doing right now, Laptop Features, Other Mobile Devices, and Mobile Device Accessories and Ports. In this module, we're going to begin by reviewing the display types that are found in laptop computers. We don't get into smart phones and tablets as such until the next couple modules. Here we're still concerned with full-fledged laptop or notebook computers. We'll take into account Wi-Fi and how antenna placement plays a role in the end user's experience with his or her laptop, webcams and microphones, some of the how-tos regarding those and paying particular attention to security, and then finally, digitizers and power inverters. Let's get started.

Laptop Features
Hi there, how you doing? Welcome to Pluralsight. This is Tim Warner welcoming you to the module entitled Laptop Features. Laptop Features is part of a course which in turn is part of the learning path that we have here at Pluralsight for the CompTIA A+ (220-901) certification exam. That learning path consists of five courses, an introduction, and then the other ones map to the published objectives, the CompTIA published objectives, that you can cross-reference at CompTIA. org. Anyway, those content domains/courses are Hardware, Networking, Mobile Devices, where we are presently, and Troubleshooting. Within the Mobile Devices course, I divided the table of contents again use the blueprint from CompTIA as my guide, Laptop Hardware and Components, Display Components, we're doing Laptop Features today, Other Mobile Devices, and Mobile Device Accessories and Ports. We have a cornucopia of learning objectives here. We're going to learn of the laptop keyboard, special function keys. You might think, oh Tim, this is about as boring as you can get! Well, I hope to take you past boredom and actually peak your interest. The bottom line is you can be a savior to the users whom you support in business. If, for instance, one of your colleagues is giving a presentation, if they're not technically experienced, they may be at a loss on how to project their laptop display on to, say, a projection surface. You can really come in handy there. We're also going to learn about docking stations, laptop locks, and rotating/removable screens. Let's get started.

Other Mobile Devices
Hi there and welcome to Pluralsight. Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Other Mobile Devices. At Pluralsight we have you covered for every single line item, every single objective in the CompTIA A+ 220-901 certification exam blueprint. Check the course notes and cross reference everything I'm teaching you here with CompTIA's objectives on their CompTIA. org website. The learning path has five courses, Introduction, Hardware, Networking, Mobile Devices, that's where we are right now, of course, and Troubleshooting. In the Mobile Devices course, here's the table of contents, Laptop Hardware, Laptop Display, Laptop Features, Other Mobile Devices, where we move into a different context of mobility from the full-fledged laptop computers to other devices that are certainly mobile and certainly connected. The fifth and final module is called Mobile Device Accessories and Ports. We have an entire laundry list of topics to cover in this module. Have a look. We're going to start with differentiating tablet devices from phablets-- I've always found that name to be sort of funny-- smartphones, wearable technology, eReaders, smart cameras, and the Global Positioning System, GPS. Let's get started.
