A battle is brewing on the notebook front, and customers are going to be the big winners – that is, customers who want low-end systems. Microsoft is lowering its license fees to help manufacturers like HP produce low-cost Windows notebooks that can take on Google’s Chromebooks. With systems expected to arrive in time for the holidays, you’re probably going to have a lot of options for updating the kids’ old notebooks. Word of Microsoft’s play for the margin-slim low-end comes from Kevin Turner, chief operating officer at Microsoft, who discussed the move during the... Read more...
When it rains, it pours. Toshiba took the wraps off half a dozen refreshed and new mobile devices today, including convertible and detachable laptops, Windows tablets, and a bargain-basement Android tablet.

As a convertible, the Radius can be used as a laptop or folded back for a tablet-like experience. It has a 1920 x 1080 resolution display... Read more...

One has to wonder: is it possible to have access to too many pixels? Probably not, particularly if you're Toshiba. The company has just outed one of the planet's first 4K laptops, and if pixel density is your top priority, this one's going to be tough to resist. The Satellite P55t has a full-fledged 4K display, and the first to earn Technicolor's Color Certification. It's meant mostly for creative pros, but enthusiasts will find plenty to love as well. It's equipped with a 15.6" IPS screen, a 3840 x 2160 resolution, and 282PPI (pixels per inch) to gawk at. Toshiba clims that it's Technicolor Certified... Read more...

Having Toshiba swoop in and acquire all of OCZ Technology's storage assets might have been the best thing that could have happened to the company.

As you might already know, OCZ Technology fell on tough times, filed for bankruptcy, and sold off virtually all of its assets to Toshiba. Following the acquisition, Toshiba launched OCZ Storage Solutions as a wholly owned subsidiary, a move that allows the hard workers at OCZ to continue pumping out solid state drives (SSDs) and other storage products without the worry of securing NAND flash memory chips in what's become a volatile market. What does all this mean in terms of warranty service? That was the big question leading up to a revised warranty page on OCZ's website. Short and to the point,... Read more...
We had originally planned to start this review off with a brief discussion of OCZ’s potential fate and what the company’s recent bankruptcy and looming acquisition by Toshiba could mean for its future.

We've even got a fresh new logo to show you. Fittingly, the first product released after the announcement, and the drive we’ll be showing you here,... Read more...
