A laptop computer, or simply laptop, is a small mobile computer, which usually weighs 2-18 pounds (1-6 kilograms), depending on mass, materials, and other factors.Laptops usually run on a single main battery or from an external AC/DC adapter which can blame the battery while also supplying power to the processor itself. Many computers also have a 3 volt cell to run the clock and other processes in the occurrence of a power failure.

As personal computers, laptops are skilled of the same tasks as a desktop computer, although they are classically less powerful for the similar price. They contain components that are similar to their desktop counterparts and perform the same functions, but are miniaturized and optimized for mobile use and capable power consumption. Laptops usually have liquid crystal displays and most of them use unusual memory modules for their chance access memory (RAM), for instance, SO-DIMM in lieu of the superior DIMMs. In addition to a built-in keyboard, they may utilize a touchpad or a pointing stick for input, though an outside keyboard or mouse can frequently be attached.

Banana is the common name used for herbaceous foliage of the genus Musa, and is also the name given to the fruit of these plants. They are resident to the tropical region of Southeast Asia, the Malay Archipelago, and Australia. They are cultivated primarily for their fruit, and to a lesser level for the production of fibre and as ornamental plants. Because of their size and structure, banana plants are often wrong for trees. The main or upright growth is called a pseudostem, which for some species can gain a height of up to 2–8 m, with leaves of up to 3.5 m in length. Each pseudostem produces a single group of bananas, before dying and being replaced by a new pseudostem.
Bananas are grown in 132 countries worldwide, additional than any other fruit crop. In popular culture and commerce, banana usually refers to soft, sweet dessert bananas that are usually eaten raw. The bananas from a collection of cultivars with firmer, starchier fruit are generally used in cooking rather than eaten raw. Bananas may also be dried up and ground into banana flour. Although the wild species have fruits with numerous large, hard seeds, virtually all culinary bananas have unplanted fruits. Bananas are classified any as dessert bananas or as green cooking bananas.

Hockey is any of a family of sports in which two teams struggle by trying to maneuver a ball, or a hard, surrounding disc called a puck, into the opponent's net or goal, using a hockey stick. Field hockey is played on nettle, natural grass, sand-based or water-based artificial turfs, with a small, hard ball. The game is popular among both males and females in many countries of the world, mostly in Europe, India, Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and South Asia. In most countries, the game is played between single-sex sides, even though it can be played by mixed-sex sides. In the United States and Canada it is played mostly by women.
Ball hockey is played in a gym using sticks and a ball, often a tennis ball with the hair removed.
There are early representations and reports of hockey-type games being played on ice in the Netherlands, and reports from Canada from the beginning of the nineteenth century, but the modern game was initially planned by students at McGill University, Montreal in 1875 who, by two years later, codified the first set of ice hockey rules and organized the first teams
