Acer’s Timeline series has low-voltage processors in the past, but three of the four new TimelineX models they’re introducing are full Core i3/i5. And while the nearly netbook-sized 1830T houses ULV Core i3/i5, it’s still a relative bargain.
That 11.6-inch 1830T weighs just three pounds and features up to a ULV Core i5 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, and 500GB hard drive starting at $600. The other models in the series include the 13.3-inch 3820T, 14-inch 4820T and the 15.6-inch 5820T, all of which feature full Core i3/i5 and 3GB or 4GB of hard drive. The 14 and 15-inch models both [...]
All those ultraportables using Intel’s ULV Core processors just got taken to school: Toshiba’s Portégé R700 is as light as a MacBook Air, as powerful as a MacBook Pro, and measures an inch thick with a DVD drive. Standard.
Putting a full voltage processor in such a thin and light frame really is a neat trick, one that Toshiba accomplished in part with something they’re calling Airflow Cooling Technology. And while most companies are stripping ultraportable notebooks of their DVD drives—usually citing space and weight issues—Toshiba’s managed to keep theirs [...]
Well, AT&T’s just getting on a roll here with unveiling some pretty nice devices ahead of dooms-day (June 24th, if you’re not sure what day that would be). The HTC Aria’s been announced and will be heading to stores in three days, and now AT&T’s finally announced their second high-end Android handset (first if you don’t count the Dell Streak for some reason): the Samsung Captivate.
We’ve been hearing about the existence of this device for a while now, and it feels good to finally get some hard facts on what AT&T and Samsung’s bringing to the table. Specs? Don’t [...]
Apple has suffered another embarrassment. A security breach has exposed iPad owners including dozens of CEOs, military officials, and top politicians. They—and every other buyer of the wireless-enabled tablet—could be vulnerable to spam marketing and malicious hacking.
The breach, which comes just weeks after an Apple employee lost an iPhone prototype in a bar, exposed the most exclusive email list on the planet, a collection of early-adopter iPad 3G subscribers that includes thousands of A-listers in finance, politics and media, from New York Times Co. CEO Janet Robinson to Diane [...]
The much-talked-about Dell Streak is finally scheduled for release, albeit exclusively to the UK’s O2 network for the time being. The 5-inch touchscreen device is billed as slotting in “between traditional smartphones and larger-screen tablets” and features a 1GHz processor, 2GB of internal memory and runs on Google’s Android operating system.
Dell reckons that the Streak’s “5-inch screen is large enough to present Web pages in their natural form, create a comfortable viewing experience, and make turn-by-turn navigation simple and safe.” Given [...]
The U.S. government is considering the sale of Plum Island, famous as a site for biological weapons testing and all manner of disease study. It’s home to a defunct government lab, a light house and a beach, but you could easily picture zombies and super soldiers strolling the grounds.
The sale of Plum Island, located near Long Island, New York, is being spurred by the government deciding to move its operation to Kansas. The new lab will cost something to the tune of 650 million. The old one? Why, Plum Island could sell for as little as $50 to $80 million, U.S. Rep. Timothy Bishop told the [...]
ViewSonic has announced U.S. availability for its new handy VOT125 mini-PC. Coming with a quartet of ultra-low-voltage processor options from Intel to help cut down on power draw and benefiting from Windows 7 Home Premium, its petite dimensions may well see the unit being squeezed into the tightest nook of limited home and office space.
ViewSonic is obviously hoping to tap into the eco-friendly home/business computing market, as they note that the VOT125 “uses up to 90 percent less plastic and consumes up to 90 percent less energy than traditional tower PCs.”
Making room for [...]
Readers, you can probably instantly figure out every one of the equations on this Pop Quiz Clock, but I’m having trouble with 6 x 2. Oh, wait a second, we don’t need no stinking equations to figure out what time it is — it’s an analog clock!
So how much is this kooky clock that I’m considering sending to my high school math teacher? Why, it’s a mere 229,00 Swedish Krona, or in U.S. dollars, that would be the square root of 900 x 2 – 1770. Okay, okay, it’s $30.
Bloomberg reports that Walmart may start selling iPad later this year as part of newly-expanded electronics sales. Thinking of the World’s largest retailer spotlighting the iPad could boost sales of the tablet device but Apple is already having hard time to meet the demand.
“We anticipate being able to have the iPad later this year,” Gary Severson, senior vice president of entertainment for Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores, said in a telephone interview. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company isn’t prepared to provide specific details related to the timing and pricing of the iPad, he said.
The smart folks at Samsung know that, despite whiz-bang new technology, classics always win, so they recently unveiled the X170 Barbie Special Edition laptop. Available in pink or black, the girly laptop is specifically targeted at the female teenage Korean market.
Measuring just 25.4 millimeters thick and featuring an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, Windows 7 Home Premium, 4 gigabytes of RAM and a massive 500 gigabyte harddrive, the U.S.-icon-laden device is ready to cutify all of Asia. The Samsung’s ode to American teenage glam will soon go on sale for 1,400,000 Korean won ($1,238) here.
