ASUS’s G-series has been warming the laps of gamers for a while, whether it’s the smart G74 or the elder statesman G73JH. The newest splinter of the G-team, however, is the G55 line. Right now, it’s the G55VW-DS71 that’s just had its specifications splayed out for all to see. It’ll be a quad-core i7-3610QM Ivy Bridge chip calling the shots, with a 2GB NVIDIA GTX 660M providing graphical backup. A solid 12GB of DDR3, 1,333MHz RAM and a 750GB HDD will come with the configuration mentioned here. There are two drive bays, though, so you can set it up to your liking, and [...]
Intel wants a piece of the smartphone market — bad. The company has made no bones about its attempts to break into that booming space. Despite big talk, however, it hasn’t really given smartphone manufacturers something they can work with. A new promotional video for its pint-sized Atom E6xx series, however, reveals that chipmaker may be taking a step in the right direction, highlighting a January 2012 date for bringing Android 2.3 to the processor. Keep in mind, of course, that this isn’t a smartphone chip that we’re talking about here — the primary applications [...]
An all-new mobile game titled Crimson: Steam Pirates developed by some of the folks behind the uber-popular Halo series of science-fiction action video games has been released on the iPad today.
The game has been developed by the recently set up Bungie Aerospace which is the mobile/social arm of Bungie, Inc. (the folks who are known for the Halo series). The aim of Bungie Aerospace is to provide a platform for independent developers to launch their innovative mobile and social games. Their first product is called Crimson: Steam Pirates and it has been released today.
We first heard about this [...]
If the powerful Z-series is the big brother of the Sony VAIO family, then the updated Sony VAIO C-series is definitely the attractive cousin.
We originally reviewed the VAIO C Series at the start of this month, but that iteration was packing a Core i5 processor and dedicated graphics. Now we have our hands on the more affordable VAIO-VPC-CA2Z0E Core i3 version.
Available in a choice of five different colours, this mid-level lifestyle laptop has a number of features that make it worth a look if you’re tired of the same old black or silver design of other machines.
Our review unit was a bright [...]
Icons and that too free, I think everyone likes it. Last Friday, I have shared eCommerce Icons and continuing in same series of post, this Friday I’m sharing 25 free icon set for web developers.

These icons are designed by Thomas McGee of WinePress of Words.
These coded icons set helps you in adding excellent addition to your website and it is great if you are inspired by the trade of web development. In addition [...]
If you were Panasonic and had already whittled a 12-inch laptop down to three pounds while keeping the optical drive in tact, what would your next move be? If you guessed make it manilla envelope-thin, you’d be wrong. The outfit just announced the Toughbook S10, and while it looks awfully similar to the three-pound S9 it’s replacing, it ushers in a series of welcome (and predictable) changes on the inside. This time around, it steps up to a Sandy Bridge Core i5-2520M processor, 4GB of RAM, USB 3.0, and a battery that promises up to 12.5 hours of juice — the longest in its class, [...]
We’ve been impressed by just how far system builders have been able to push the latest Core i5 and i7 2K series CPUs, especially after the initial commotion about locked clock multipliers upon release. Just as it seemed Intel were about to hobble a phenomenally powerful processor series, the Core i5 2500K and Core i7 2600K chips were released, fully unlocked and featuring serious headroom for performance boosts.
It’s been the more expensive i7 2600K that’s enjoyed most of the limelight and found its way into some fantastic systems, such as last month’s Dino PC Evolution [...]
While LG’s 2011 HDTV lineup has been largely a success so far — we found a lot to like in the LW5600 we reviewed and quarterly earnings seem to justify its 3D and LED technology — some wouldn’t be satisfied without an LED backlit (rather than edge lit) option. That issue is solved now with the new LW9800 series, shown off here in Korea as the LW980S. Announced in two sizes, 55- and 47-inches, both feature “Nano LED” local dimming with as many as 2,300 sources in the larger one and 480Hz motion technology.
They also include other LG standard features like Cinema [...]
It’s been barely four months since Toshiba introduced its MK7559GSXP — a tightly-packed, 750GB hard drive that, believe it or not, has already been eclipsed by the MQ01ABD series. Unveiled yesterday, the company’s new lineup of 2.5-inch HDDs offers up to 1TB of storage capacity, thanks to an architecture that squeezes 500GB out of every platter. Standing at 9.5mm tall, the 5,400RPM drives also boast an areal density of 744Gb per square inch, and are designed to maximize energy efficiency, burning just 0.55 watts in idle mode. Gamers and entertainment gurus, meanwhile, would benefit [...]
