CyberPower reveals Fang III Taipan SLI gaming notebook

CyberPower is one of the better known builders of gaming desktops, but the company also makes supercharged laptops capable of running the latest GPU-punishing titles. The Fang III Taipan is its latest portable offering, and it carries both high-end components and a high-end price. The default configuration will set you back a heart-stopping $1,819, but the 2.4GHz Core i7, 16GB of DDR3 RAM and pair of Geforce GTX 670Ms in an SLI arrangement ensure you’re getting your money’s worth. There’s also a 60GB SSD and 1TB hard drive under the hood so you don’t have to choose between performance or storage. You can also pair up a couple of SSDs in a RAID if that’s your thing. To get the most out of all that power there’s a 17.3-inch 1,920 x 1,080 LED panel and an Onkyo sound system with a subwoofer for your aural enjoyment. Obviously, the Taipan is only portable in the loosest of sense considering its bulky 8.6-pound frame, but we doubt anyone would really want to carry roughly $2,000 worth of computer with them in public anyway. Heck, if you really wanted to trick this thing out with 32GB of RAM, a 3.0GHz Core i7, 1TB of SSD storage and a pair of GTX 680Ms you could easily top $5,000. Hit up the source link to configure your own.

ThinkPad X1′s keyboard is spill-proof, not flood-proof (video)

Author admin    Category Gadget, Notebook     Tags

The ThinkPad X1 thought it was safe. It foolishly believed that, having reviewed it in full, we would spare it from further scrutiny at Lenovo’s UK launch event this evening. We quite naturally did no such thing, poking and prodding at the slimline laptop — which still feels supremely well built — but we also went that one step further, by putting it through a trial we didn’t dare subject our review unit to: a spill test. Well, it was a less a spill and more of a steady stream of water that we doused the X1 in, which might explain why it eventually gave out and shut down on us. Lenovo says that the keyboard tray can only handle 25cl of water before throwing a self-protect switch and turning the computer off. Given enough time to fully dry out, our unfortunate test subject might even have been brought back to life, but our efforts at restoring it were met with failure. You can see the H2O-based carnage after the break, though we should note that Lenovo managed to perform this test three times without taking the X1 out of commission… before we came along and ruined its spotless record.

HP intros the ProBook 5330m, EliteBook 2560p, and EliteBook 2760p tablet

Author admin    Category Gadget, HP, IT News, Notebook     Tags
After announcing a trio of consumer laptops, you didn’t think HP had forgotten about its business line, did you? The company also trotted out three lightweight models for the corporate set, including the 12.1-inch EliteBook 2760p convertible tablet, which has been rearing its head around the FCC as of late. Although it’s an update to the current-generation 2740p, it sticks with its tried-and-true metal design. But — surprise, surprise — it steps up to Sandy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 CPU options, promises 5.5 hours of battery life with the standard six-cell, and will be one of several models compatible with HP’s newly minted (optional) prepaid data service, DataPass. Is this the Windows 7 tablet you’ve been looking for? It’s on sale now starting at $1,500 — stylus included

Next up is the EliteBook 2560p laptop, an update to the 12.1-inch 2540p. This one, too, has a tough aluminum-and-magnesium-alloy build, but it gets the good ol’ Sandy Bridge treatment and also shifts to a 12.5-inch display — a screen size that’s rarely stretched to 16:9 proportions. And, HP claims it’s the only laptop of its size with a built-in optical drive, if sacrificing optical discs isn’t a compromise you’re willing to make. Look for it on May 23 with a starting price of $1,100.

Lastly, there’s the ProBook 5330m, a 13.3-incher that’s trying hard to win over Generation Y-types just dipping their toes into the workforce… and who will call in sick if their work machines aren’t trendy, or something. In addition to a dual-tone aluminum chassis, it plays cool with a backlit keyboard, Sandy Bridge Core i3 and i5 CPU options, and Beats Audio — a first for an HP business system. On the inside, meanwhile, it offers TPM circuitry and optional Intel vPro processors — perks for the IT managers likely to buy these in bulk. These are on sale now, starting at $800.

Acer Releases Dual-Screen Iconia “Touchbook”

Author admin    Category Acer, Gadget, IT News, Notebook     Tags

 

It is rare to find a device that is both baffling and compelling. We’ve been talking about the Acer Iconia for a while now and this dual-screened tablet or “Touchbook” is now available and shipping in the US next month. It runs a Core i5 chip, Windows 7, and has two 14-inch screens made of high-strength Gorilla Glass that allow for typing, multi-touch, and gestures.

 

Acer has created an entirely new interface to the dual-screen system including an odd “ring” interface that lets you select items on screen by making a claw with your hand and spinning onscreen images. Add in various other elements including an onscreen keyboard that essentially turns this thing into a regular laptop and you’ve got something that may be worth a second look.

It is shipping in April for $1,199.99.

ASUS’ K53E laptop gets reviewed, 2.53GHz Core i5-2520M CPU gets praised

Author admin    Category Asus, Gadget, IT News, Notebook     Tags

Never mind the fact that Intel’s outing a mid-range laptop CPU long after the highest of high-end — the 2.53GHz Core i5-2520M is shaping up to be a lovely option for those who’d prefer a budget choice with plenty of horsepower for churning through HD video. The benchmarking gurus over at Hot Hardware recently grabbed hold of the new silicon, and they noticed an “unmatched performance-per-watt profile for mobile CPUs,” not to mention a robust graphics core, “ridiculously low idle power consumption,” a respectable price point and plenty of power for any software title not named Crysis 2. ASUS’ 15.6-inch K53E was the test machine, and with a starting tag of just $899, it’s definitely a compelling package. Based on their testing, this particular CPU was around 15 to 25 percent faster across the board compared to its previous generation 2.5GHz Arrandale counterpart, and that’s with around the same power draw, too. Hit the source link for more charts than you’d care to see on an average workday, and be on the lookout for this chip to hit a whole slew of new rigs in the coming weeks.

Asus Lamborghini VX 6, Netbook ala Mobil Sport

Author admin    Category Asus, Gadget, IT News, Notebook     Tags

 


Netbook sering dicitrakan sebagai sebuah laptop kecil dengan performa dan tampilan biasa-biasa saja. Asus sepertinya ingin mengubah anggapan itu dengan menghadirkan netbook Eee PC versi premium dengan nama Lamborghini VX6. Ya, netbook ini membawa sejumlah fitur yang diharapkan membuatnya lebih unggul dari netbook kebanyakan.

Nuansa mobil sport nan agresif coba diterjemahkan Asus dalam Eee PC Lamborghini VX6. Wajar saja, netbook tersebut menyandang nama Lamborghini, merek mobil sport tenar asal Italia. Mari kita tilik mengapa netbook ini berani menyandang nama Lamborghini dan apakah performanya memang seagresif tampilannya.

Desain Agresif

Penampakan bagian luar VX 6 terlihat agresif, mirip dengan sebuah moncong mobil sport. Lekuk-lekuk tegasnya menambah kesan garang. Secara keseluruhan, desain VX6 agresif dan solid, meski kenyataanya sebagian bahannya dari plastik. Ketika dibuka dan ditutup, tidak ada kesan ringkih dijumpai.

Pernak pernik ala Lamborghini kental terasa. Misalnya, terdapat logo banteng bertuliskan Automobili Lamborghini di bagian belakang layar. Kemudian ketika dinyalakan, pengguna langsung disambut dengan bunyi deruman mesin layaknya mobil sport yang sedang beraksi. Tak ketinggalan, ada screensaver khusus yang menggambarkan kaitan erat antara VX6 dengan mobil sport Lamborghini.

Ketika VX 6 dibuka, interior bagian dalam yang didominasi warna hitam pun kelihatan berkelas. Keyboardnya berdiri sendiri dan memiliki jarak yang cukup lebar untuk memudahkan pengetikan. Area touchpad berukuran luas dan didominasi bahan mengkilat nan stylish. Saat dicoba untuk mengakses menu di layar, responnya terhitung sensitif.

Tidak seperti kebanyakan netbook, VX 6 memiliki layar terbilang luas yang seukuran 12,1 inch. Hal ini tentu menguntungkan untuk melihat konten multimedia. Resolusi sendiri sudah mencapai 1336×768 yang membuat obyek-obyek di layar tampil tajam dan nyaman dilihat mata.

Kelebihan lain yang ditawarkan oleh netbook ini adalah sudah disertakannya port HDMI. Kemudian USB sudah berteknologi 3.0 yang secara teori mampu membuat transfer data lebih cepat daripada generasi sebelumnya. Urusan konektivitas internet ditunjang pula dengan Wi-Fi 802.11n dan Ethernet.

Beralih ke fitur audio. Ketika dicoba memperdengarkan berbagai lagu, suara yang mengalun dari dua speaker VX 6 terdengar jernih dan bertenaga, tidak ada kesan cempreng meski diputar dalam volume tinggi. Ya, rupanya ini berkat kehadiran teknologi bernama Ice Power dari Bang & Olufsen, yang menambah kualitas output audio di VX6.

VX 6 memakai sistem operasi Windows 7 Home Premium. Software Office juga tersedia di dalamnya, hanya saja hanya tidak tersedia lengkap, cuma Word dan Excel. Itupun fungsinya masih terbatas.

Uniknya, ada pilihan untuk mengakses menu via Express Gate Cloud melalui sebuah tombol khusus. Pada dasarnya, ini adalah OS dengan fungsi terbatas dan hanya dapat memakai sedikit menu seperti browsing dan mengakses foto.

Performa Hardware Solid

Dari sisi dapur pacu, Asus coba mengandalkan prosesor Intel Atom D525 (Dual Core; 1.8GHz) untuk menangani tugas-tugas komputasi. Kehadiran prosesor dual core ini tampak terasa dalam mulusnya VX 6 ketika dipakai melakukan browsing web, mengakses Office, sampai konten multimedia.

Memang sebagai notebook premium, hardware yang dihadirkan lebih tinggi dari netbook lainnya. RAM 2048MB DDR3 dan kehadiran prosesor grafis Nvidia Ion menambah daya pikatnya. Ujung-ujungnya, VX 6 mampu menangani pemutaran video kelas HD alias High Definiton dengan lancar. Urusan ngegame juga lebih baik dibandingkan netbook lain, meski tetap tidak seoptimal di laptop.

Sedangkan daya tahan baterai ditunjang dengan teknologi Nvidia Optimus.Teknologi ini dapat memfasilitasi pergantian grafis terintegrasi dengan grafis terpisah sesuai kebutuhan untuk memberikan solusi grafis optimal, sehingga menambah daya tahan baterai. Untuk urusan penyimpanan data, Asus menyediakan storage 320GB HDD SATA.

Secara keseluruhan, netbook ini menawarkan desain yang stylish, didukung oleh performa yang solid. Gaya ala mobil sport Lamborghini sepertinya bakal membuat orang-orang banyak meliriknya. Barangkali satu yang jadi kelemahannya, netbook ini terasa lebih berat dan besar dibanding netbook kebanyakan. Namun demikian jika hal ini tidak menjadi masalah, Anda bisa meminangnya dengan harga cukup tinggi dikisaran Rp 6-7 juta.

Kelebihan:
- Desain stylish
- Performa solid
- Suara jernih

Kekurangan

- Sedikit berat bobotnya
- Mahal

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer shows up wearing Honeycomb to CeBIT (video)

Author admin    Category Gadget, IT News, Notebook, Tablet     Tags

 

Here’s a trend we can get behind: ASUS and others are remixing existing, yet-to-be-released Android tablets with Honeycomb where it makes sense to do so. The Eee Pad MeMO, for instance, is now being promised with a Qualcomm port of the platform in time for its June launch — and along those same lines, the company is showing its Eee Pad Transformer here at CeBIT with a Honeycomb upgrade. Unlike the MeMO, the Transformer is just a straight Tegra 2 setup like the already-launched Xoom, which is likely why they were able to get it loaded on here and functioning relatively well in time for the show. The build ASUS has here doesn’t appear to be final — the Android Market is missing, for example — but what was there seemed to be running smoothly; considering the internals, we’d expect no less. Follow the break for video (pardon the lack of audio — there was some talking going on that we found distracting).

Asus Transformer, Laptop/Tablet Tegra 2 Honeycomb [Video]

Author admin    Category Acer, Gadget, IT News, Notebook, Tablet     Tags

Salah satu tablet Asus yang patut ditunggu adalah tablet Asus Eee Pad Transformer. Berbeda dari tablet pada umumnya serta sesuai dengan namanya, perangkat yang satu ini dapat berubah wujud menjadi layaknya sebuah laptop dengan papan ketik yang dapat dicabut.

Tablet ini dilengkapi dengan layar IPS 10.1 inci, resolusi 1280×800, Nvidia Tegra 2 prosesor, kamera belakang 5MP, kamera depan 1.2 MP, papan ketik full size, dan yang terpenting sudah menjalankan OS Android 3.0 Honeycomb. Baterainya diklaim dapat bertahan hingga 16 jam sehingga tepat digunakan untuk pengguna yang memiliki mobilitas tinggi. Eee Pad Transformer akan tersedia bulan April dengan harga berkisar $399 hingga $699.

Desain yang disematkan untuk produk ini juga terlihat elegan karena serba metalik. Lebih jelasnya simak video dibawah ini:
