While gaming monsters like the Tytan CG8890
might satisfy a player's lust for power in the home, we live in a mobile world and today's gamer needs a good dose of high performance portable power. ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) set its sights on creating a smaller, lighter and easier-to-carry gaming notebook while still offering gamers the powerful performance of bigger family members. That quest is now over, and the result is the launch of the first 14-inch ROG gaming notebook, the G46VW.
When space is at a premium or you're just not a big fan of cable clutter, there's nothing quite as attractive as an all-in-one desktop computer and, as we discovered when reviewing HP's Omni 27
model recently, bigger is most assuredly beautiful. Dell's latest slim and stylish addition to its premium XPS family is also its largest ever all-in-one computer. The XPS One 27 features the latest third generation Intel Core processors, HDD or SSD/HDD hybrid storage options and boasts some impressive built-in audio capabilities, too.
LG has announced Korean availability for its new premium notebook that squeezes a 12.5-inch widescreen display into the kind of notebook body size normally reserved for 11.6-inch screens. The IPS display is also said to cater for multiple viewers at different viewing angles within a 178 degree arc, without loss of definition or color. The P220's sharing capabilities continue into wireless territory thanks to included content sharing software that allows users to let other DNLA-compliant devices get in on the video, music or photo action.
Apple's desktop lineup has typically pushed users requiring plenty of fast I/O towards the Mac Pro - but the latest iMac refresh has broken the tradition. While quad-core Sandy Bridge CPUs and faster ATI Radeon HD GPUs are welcomed, it's the addition of Thunderbolt
ports (one in the 21.5-inch and two in the 27-inch) that really ups the ante for a number of professional users.
Not too long ago, overclocking
a processor to squeeze out every last drop of performance was the domain of relatively few dedicated hardware or gaming enthusiasts, but is now becoming more and more commonplace. We could feel the salivation at Alienware's announcement of a new gaming laptop
that's factory-overclocked to 4GHz. Now ORIGIN has announced that its EON17-S performance notebooks are available with mobile processors overclocked to a world-beating 4.5GHz.
Industrial-grade rugged computer systems manufacturer Stealth Computer has announced its most powerful small form factor PC
to date. The Little PC 670 has been designed with Intel's Core i3, i5
mobile processors, and packs numerous I/O connectivity options into a 6.54 x 6.18 x 1.89-inch (166 x 157 x 48 mm) durable aluminum chassis. HDD storage comes as standard, but SSD solutions are available for applications that require extra-high shock, vibration and temperature protection. There's support for full 1080p high definition playback, and 5.1 Channel audio courtesy of Realtek.
Twenty new processors, new chipsets and new wireless solutions - including new Core i7, i5 and i3 processors, Intel 6 Series Chipsets, and Intel Centrino WiFi and WiMAX adapters - were introduced by Intel at CES
today. The company brings a host of new features to the combined processor and powerful high definition graphics architecture, including super fast video conversion functionality and the ability to beam content to HDTVs via a new version of Intel WiDi. Collaborations with HD movie providers will also result in user being able to watch previously unavailable content on a PC screen.
A new business-class laptop has just made an unannounced appearance on Dell's U.S. product pages. The Latitude E4310 ultraportable laptop will be available in a choice of Core i5 processors, the option of HDD or SSD storage as well as up to 8GB of memory, a backlit keyboard and multi-touch trackpad, 7-in1 card reader and fingerprint reader.
Maingear has recently unveiled what it claims to be the fastest 15" gaming laptop on the market. Offering top-of-the-line components while still allowing for several customization options, the new eX-L promises to satisfy even the most demanding of hardcore gamers.
Apple has finally unveiled the long expected updates to its MacBook Pro
line with faster processors, next generation NVIDIA graphics and improved battery life. The new 13-inch MacBook Pro includes faster Intel Core 2 Duo processors, while the 15-inch and 17-inch models feature Intel Core i5 and i7 processors as well as Apple’s new automatic graphics switching technology that lets users toggle between energy efficient Intel HD Graphics and the more powerful NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M processors without having to log out.
