At this point, nearly every major notebook maker has issued new machines with Intel's Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 inside. But Toshiba has been hanging back, watching as everyone else makes those first moves and grabs for attention. Now, the time is obviously right for the company to introduce four new Satellite Pro models: the 13.3" L630, 15.6" L650/L650D, 17.3" L670/L670D and 15.6" C650/C650D. All four feature a unique array of customizable options. Users can get these with a Core i3/i5 CPU or one of AMD's Athlon II dual-core chips (the "D" models). Other specifications include Gigabit Ethernet,... Read more...
Gateway may not have the clout they once had, but don't you dare count them out. The company is rolling along in 2010 with more than a few significant announcements, and the new NV Series certainly hangs with the big boys in most every respect. The newly updated line reflects the changes that come with a new line of Intel CPUs, and we have to confess that the spec sheets look rather exciting. The NV line consists of two models: the 15.6" NV5 and 17.3" NV7. Both feature a high definition LCD widescreen, with the first having a Core i3 CPU, integrated webcam, 1366x768 panel and starting price of... Read more...
Without a whole lot of fanfare, Dell has gone and updated its Inspiron notebook line with several new 'R' branded models, including the Inspiron 13R, 14R, 15R, 17R, and M501R. These are slightly upgraded models over their R-less counterparts, all of which sport a wider variety of hardware and OS options to choose from. In addition to tapping into Intel's Core i3 and Core i5 technology, the R-series also boast a few aesthetic and design enhancements. There's a new hinged forward design, as well as a brushed metal finish with chrome accents and four different color options to choose from. "The Inspiron... Read more...
Talk about unveiling a boatload of products at once. HP has issued a rather lengthy list of updates in their desktop/all-in-one ranges today, with the highlights being revamped TouchSmart PCs (complete with Intel Arrandale Core i5 and Core i3) and a new Pavilion Elite desktop with a quad-core AMD chip.Speaking of which, we'll get started with that very machine. The HP Pavilion Elite HPE-210f is a typical mid-sized PC tower, equipped with a 3.00GHz Phenom II 945 Quad-Core CPU, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), 8GB of DDR3 memory, a 1TB hard drive, Blu-ray drive, ATI Radeon 5450 GPU with 512MB of...

It seems like just yesterday that we commented on how many new CULV notebooks had hit the scene, and how Intel had seemingly hit the proverbial sweet spot. These low-voltage Core processors fit perfectly between high-end netbooks and low-end mainstream laptops, offering enough power for most users in a package that would run for hours on end without a recharge. The price point was also good, with many CULV options listing for around $700 to $900. And then, the Core 2010 lineup of processors were launched, and Intel seemingly ate its own in a ploy to get even faster chips on the market. Today, we're... Read more...

It's been just over a year since AMD completed its spinoff of GlobalFoundries in an attempt to radically change its own financial trajectory. The gamble appears to have paid off for both companies; we recently sat down with GlobalFoundries executives to talk about the company's first year and plans for the future. GlobalFoundries current roadmap is as follows: The company will ship 40nm LP (low power) silicon starting this quarter and 32nm SOI in the back half of 2010. The left edge of each box denotes 'risk production,' aka early commercial production. One of the reasons we originally contacted... Read more...
Not every high-end, haute couture product turns out to be a bestseller—even Steve Jobs had the Cube—but it's rather odd for a manufacturer to design, advertise, tease, and launch a product only to pull it off the market barely four months later. Nevertheless, that's the news from Dell on the Adamo XPS. The Adamo product line will continue but its 0.4" thick headline XPS system with a 128GB SSD and 4GB RAM as standard has been discontinued. If it's odd for a company to launch a high-end product in November, make it readily available in December, and kill it in March, it's even stranger for company... Read more...
Hot on the heels of our Wind U135 review, here comes a new shipment of MSI notebooks for those looking for something a bit more powerful (and a bit larger). A total of three 15.6" and one 16" notebooks are now shipping in the United States, with a starting price tag of $529.99.All four of these fit into MSI's "Classic" line of machines, with the 16" CR600 and 15.6" CR620-030, CR620-033 and CR620-031 all featuring Windows 7 Home Premium. The whole family is also built around Intel’s Arrandale platform and feature new Core i3 or Core i5 processors, and they also tout 16:9 displays with 1366x768 resolution.... Read more...
Intel plans to geek out at this year's Super Bowl. The company plans to use the Super Bowl's wide appeal to call attention to its all new 2010 Intel Core processor family. Today, Intel announced that it will be the title sponsor of the post-game show on CBS. Intel will also appear as an individual Super Bowl advertiser, representing the first time Intel has advertised during the game in over a decade. This year, Intel will debut two new commercials over three 30-second spots. The first of the commercials will air during the fourth quarter of the game on February 7th. The other two 30-second spots... Read more...
For awhile, Intel's Core i7 was the only Core around. Then came the Core i5 and Core i3, and now a whole new world of machines are being offered up at much more reasonable price points. CyberPower is usually one of the first PC makers out there to implement new chips once they hit the market, and the same goes this time around. The new Core i3 series are aimed at budget-conscience consumers, and it's available to order now on right new Gamer Xtreme models. The Core i3-530 and Core i3-540 CPUs will both be offered, with the cheapest system being priced at only $649. Have a look at our in-depth look... Read more...
Just recently, we were able to sit down with Intel and talk shop about its newest (and most powerful) Core i7 yet, and apparently the company is really fond of that "Core iX" naming convention. So enthused, in fact, that they have just announced plans to phase out some of its brands -- including "Centrino" in order to hone in on fewer top names. Granted, we've certainly seen Intel and others try this re-branding thing before. Remember when megahertz ratings were all the rage? Now, Intel will stop using Centrino and start using more "Core" names, but the re-brand won't go into effect until next... Read more...
