Here is one such thing that can help you in many ways to achieve that purpose. With the GarageBand, you can actually make music creations much broader and be happening. Wanna know how and why? Keep reading further.

What is Garageband?

Garageband crams in a complete music production studio inside your computer/Laptop. You can create your music like songs, ringtones, and other projects with Garageband and share it with the world. Steve Jobs created the concept intending to democratize the best free music production software and accessible by all.

Garageband is second to none when it comes to beginner-friendly and free music production software. Aspiring artists tend to take advantage of free products. It offers a plethora of powerful tools that are only available on paid digital audio workstation (DAW) software.

You may be an expert, or may not even own an instrument, Garageband will come to good use. The recording and editing software offers one of the most well rounded DAWs that is up for grabs free of cost. The name of the app was derived from the countless celebrity musicians who started off making music from their own garages.

Ultimate Comparison Guide for Beginners – Kodi and Plex

Kodi and Plex are competing media centers — they give you access to all your videos, images, and songs from one place. They also let you stream content to multiple devices and watch live TV channels. Although Kodi and Plex serve a similar purpose, they are different in many ways. Both offer unique features, which makes it hard to proclaim one as being better than the other.

Which service is right for me?

So who wins in this Plex vs Kodi comparison? Good question. Kodi and Plex offer the same basic feature, which is to bring all your media content under one roof. But each of them also has a set of unique features aimed at a specific audience.

If you want a service that allows you to organize your entire media library as well as share it with other devices effortlessly, Plex is the way to go. It’s also a great option for those who want to watch live TV legally, although you’ll need additional gear to make that happen. But keep in mind there are fewer live TV channels available than on Kodi.

In case you’re looking for a media center solution that’s free of charge but still offers several useful features, Kodi is more up your alley. It might not be as pretty or easy to use as Plex, but it does have a lot more customization options. It also gives you access to a lot of add-ons for watching live TV, although some aren’t legal. Like with Plex, you can also stream videos, music, and other content from one device to another, but you’ll have to invest some time and effort to set it up.

What are Plex and Kodi?

Plex is a streaming media server that lets you play movies, shows, and music on your TV and computer, mobile devices and streaming boxes. It sorts and manages your library, with full support for metadata and advanced features like on-the-fly video and audio conversion. It’s compatible with most streaming devices, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Fire Stick, and many more. Plex also has official apps for Android and iOS.

For your computer, you can download the latest version of the Plex server here. You can find the right Plex client for each device in your app store. Plex is available for free, but also has a subscription service that unlocks premium features.

Kodi is a streaming media software that runs on your TV, computer, and mobile or streaming devices. It’s an open-source project, with support for a huge array of add-ons, or software plugins, that let you stream content from the web or play downloaded videos and music. Kodi is known for being extremely customizable. With a little time and effort, you’re guaranteed to find a look and feel that you love.


Pros: Kodi is always free. Its open-source nature makes it highly customizable and has led to a robust library of add-ons, which include many options for watching live TV. Cons: While very user-friendly, Kodi still feels a bit less polished than Plex. And Kodi is far more suited to watching content on a single device: out of the box, it cannot stream content to multiple devices.


Pros: Plex is a user-friendly service that makes one device’s media library available on all sorts of devices on (and, with Plex Pass, beyond) your home network. Cons: Plex is less customizable and offers less live TV support than Kodi. Plex’s best features cost money.

How to Find Best Gaming Laptops

With their effective components, designs and premium costs, gaming laptops are another beast than normal mainstream laptops. And they need to be if you like to play challenging games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Grand theft auto V, explore virtual worlds with either the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and enjoy smooth gameplay on high frame rates. They’re also another monster in regards to create, giving chassis with increased aggressive lines and multicolor keyboards.

These are our top picks of the moment. After trolling through the depths of the internet in search of the ultimate deals possible we’ve picked out the laptops below in order to link you up with the best gaming specs possible for your money for under or around $1000.  We’ve noted best laptops for $1000 to help you stick within your budget, although in some cases saving up for the next level up may be worth it.

Depending on your needs, your lifestyle as well as the activities you want to perform, you could end up spending anywhere from $800 to $5,000 over a process that’s prone to weigh between 4 and 13 lbs. To buy the right gaming laptop, follow the methods and advice below.

These midrange gaming giants can pack enough punch to enjoy contemporary titles on realistic controls without making a gap inside your wallet and can perform new games including the Witcher 3 on channel to high settings as documented on our 2015 / 2016 gaming notebooks guide where you can find comprehensive standards on all of the hardware listed on this page. If you’d like perfect artwork then we recommend you see our information towards the finest high-end gaming notebooks which features the product of the crop high-end products that may rival even the most advanced desktop products in terms of their gaming prowess. If you’re gambling over a significant budget, our information to gaming laptops under 500 dollars also may help.

The main element of a gaming laptop will be the graphics processor, as this does all of the work when you’re playing a game. Unlike a desktop Computer, you can’t enhance the graphics card in a laptop, so it pays to obtain the most effective you can afford. Notebooks with Nvidia GTX 1080, 1070, 1060 and 1050 graphics chips are currently those to find. Unlike the 900M-series chips in older laptops, these new GPUs are not cut-down designs for laptops: they are exactly like their desktop counterparts. The brand new GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti are observed in somewhat cheaper gaming laptops. We were looking to see reduced prices (around £600-700) but by yet, such notebooks are still around the £1000 mark.

Also, see Best laptops for 2017

Quick Tips

  1. Do not buy a gaming laptop for low-end brands like Warcraft or Chocolate Break. These games can quickly be supported by an integral graphics card.
  2. Avoid touchscreens. They’re more expensive and drain the battery.
  3. 17 or 18-inch laptops are usually more powerful, however, the least lightweight while 13-, 14 and 15 inches are better to bring but usually lack higher-end components.
  4. Make sure the keyboard is comfortable. When you can, take a trip towards the shop and try out the keyboard before you purchase.
  5. Ditch the M. As a result of Nvidia’s 10-series GPUs, mobile chips are a thing of the past. These new GPUs are faster, better and therefore are VR ready.
  6. Prevent laptops with a lower screen (less than 1920 x 1080).
  7. Find solid state storage. Buy SSD for the faster game adds and load times.
  8. Obtain a notebook with at the least an Intel Core i7 6700HQ processor, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPU along with an HDMI 1.3 slot if you like to help you to savor virtual reality games using an Oculus Rift or HTC-Vive.
