Lenovo is kicking it into overdrive this week with tons of announcements and leaks of upcoming products. Their CES booth should be quite active if all these releases are available eye candy at the show. One of their new models announced is a Hybrid Tablet/ULV Notebook called the U1 Hybrid. This little clamshell packs 2
Netbooks are crazy popular. Dan‘s recent, unsuccessful search, for one showed us that. I believe there might not have been a more popular gadget gift this holiday season.
Last month Dan wrote a post called “Getting the Most From Your Tosiiba NB205 Netbook” here. The information is so helpful I feel it’s worth repeating as I went through
‘Twas The Day After Christmas
And All Through The Town
Not One Single Netbook
Could Somewhere Be Found
I set out today to grab a netbook for someone and got a bit of a surprise…
I went to the local Walmart and, when I asked about getting a netbook, I was just about laughed at. “None in stock!” they said.

The battle for netbook supremacy has been heating up over the last few weeks between chip manufacturer’s Intel and Nvidia. Intel recently announced the release of the new PineTrail chipset which updated the year old Atom N270/N280 Cpu’s and the tired GMA950 Graphics platform. Early tests show that the new Pinetrail platform still continues to struggle
We recently released the introduction of the Camber Netbook Case-Sling from Everki (you can read the release here). Everki was kind enough to supply a Camber for me to review. This new case is super compact fitting netbooks up to 13″. The product is slightly too small to hold a 13″ MacBook Pro (they actually are 13.3″), but aRead more
You can stop staring now.
Sure, the UMID mbook Pink Edition is only a little bit larger than a Nintendo DS, but this dainty morsel is running full Windows XP! I am completely intrigued by the Handheld PC form factor, and I can’t help but be interested. Starting at $449 (including a storage pouch and 4GB microSD), you get five
While in theory this could be game could have been called Star Wars Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith expansion, fortunately it was just called Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith and is easily abbreviated as MotS. It was released in early 1998, a mere four months after the release of a game still markedRead more
This is the first time I have been on an airplane in almost a year, but is the first of a series of trips I will be taking in the next two months. Therefore it was a good opportunity for me to get a better sense of what gear is currently best for me when going from place to place
or … Five Years Loving a Game With a Stupid Name.
One of the quirky ‘top whatever’ lists that appears every now and then is the list of worst names for video games. And somewhere on every one of those lists is Divine Divinity. Yeah, it IS pretty obvious why.
The game would also appear on another list – if
If the idea of carrying a pad of paper, an eBook reader, and a netbook sounds like two too many things to carry, then you might be the target audience for the Android based enTourage eDGe.
The enTourage eDGe is a dual-screen, WiFi-enabled device that has optional access to 3G networks for fast and easy data transfers. The left side
I was at Best Buy looking for a laptop for one of my colleagues. She needs something powerful enough to create flyers, documents etc but also light enough to carry with ease. Good battery life was a must. An optical drive was not. The other requirement? It had to be inexpensive. In the end I picked up a Toshiba Satellite
Context is everything. I hadn’t touched SiN since replaying SiN Gold when it was released for the Mac in 2000. Then they released the first ‘episode’ of SiN Episodes, called ‘Emergence‘ in 2006, which came with a Steam copy of ‘SiN 1′ as it was called. Naturally I played some then as I waited for the release of the episode,Read more
I stopped by my local Best Buy yesterday to make a return and the demo unit of the new Nokia Booklet 3G caught my eye. I was impressed. The device is small and has gracious curves. It is thin and has almost no breaks in its super-clean lines. And it is solid. And I mean SOLID! Like the uni-body MacBookRead more
Vestax, one of the industry leaders in professional DJ equipment has partnered up with djay to release a brand new controller called Spin that enables Mac users to use their own iTunes libraries to mix, scratch and play music just like a real DJ.
The bundle is available exclusively in Apple stores nationwide, and delivers the entire DJ experience
I recently reviewed Shinnoire‘s custome iPhone Leather Flip Case. I had a lot of fun selecting my personal color choices for the case. It’s not often you get to pick and choose the exact colors which will go into your case and then have it personally hand crafted.
Shinnorie offers the same level of customization for their bags as
OWC (Other World Computing) has announced a $500 price reduction and expanded options on the Axiotron Modbook, what they call “the world’s only Mac-based tablet computer that lets users draw and write directly on the screen.”
Custom configured 13.3″ Modbook tablets now start from $1,599 with a standard Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz processor, 2GB of memory, 160GB internal hard
I love tablets. I used a Windows Tablet PC for years and have been chomping at the bit for the Apple tablet. The iPhone and iPod touch have been and are awesome, but I have been longing for something a bit larger. When the Archos 5 Internet Tablet with Android came along, I thought it just might be the ticket.
Question- what is the same thickness as the iPhone 3GS but offers full notebook functionality.
Answer- the Dell Adamo XPS. (It is actually thinner in places.)
The Adamo XPS is one of the more unusual notebooks designs we have ever seen. It is remarkably thin, has an unusual mechanism for unlocking the device and a design that is eye-catching. Xavier
Rumor has it that the upcoming 10.6.2 build of Mac OS X has removed support for the Intel Atom CPU, which is the processor under the hood of many netbooks on the market today, including my beloved Dell Mini 9. This isn’t an issue for most Mac users, but if you’re like me and you’ve Hackintoshed your way toRead more
Every once and a while a product comes along that really catches my eye. Such was the case when I spotted an advertisement for the HyperMac external battery in a tech. magazine last month. The HyperMac is currently the only external battery available for use with Apple’s line of Mac Book computers. And with the new unibody Mac Book ProRead more
There are many games from the history of computer role-playing games that deserve the attention of a full retrospective, looking back in depth at what made the game great and putting it into modern context. However, for every ‘Ultima IV’ or ‘Arcanum’ there are a hundred games like Hexplore – minor releases that added something at the time but wereRead more
There are two things everyone shopping for a notebook computer want: more features and lower price. Today Acer announces a new notebook designed with those things in mind, what they call “an innovative notebook with 3D viewing technology. Featuring advanced display capabilities, high-definition graphics engine, premium Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor and Dolby® surround sound, the Aspire 5738DG delivers cinematicRead more
Given that my first love of gaming is first-person shooters (FPS) based on my love of the original Castle Wolfenstein back on my Apple ][+, it is somewhat surprising that I was ‘late to the party’ on Unreal by nearly a year. But hey, gimme a break – I had a three-month old colicky baby when it was released inRead more
