More Classmate PCs based on Intel’s Learning Series are coming down the pipe; CTL showed off two new models at CES, as did Lenovo, and both companies are offering traditional clamshell laptop and convertible form factors. CTL’s 2go Classmate PC E12 laptop and 2go Convertible Classmate PC NL3 have 10.1-inch screens and feature a dual-core Intel Atom N2600 (1.66 GHz), up to 2GB of DDR3 RAM, and either up to a 320GB-capacity HDD or 128GB SSD, as well as WiFi and Ethernet for connectivity. (The NL3 also has a 3.5G chip inside.) Both have audio jacks, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, VGA, HDMI,... Read more...
CTL probably isn't on your short list of laptop makers if you're in the market for a new notebook, but if you're specifically looking for an Ubuntu-powered machine, perhaps the Oregon-based outfit should be. The 14.1-inch MB40U is CTL's first Ubuntu compatible notebook, and the company's pretty excited about it. So much, in fact, that it's already looking ahead to more Ubuntu products. "CTL is very pleased to introduce our line of notebooks and desktops based on Ubuntu version 11.10. Ubuntu has emerged as one of the most popular and user-friendly Linux operating systems in the market. With Ubuntu,... Read more...
CTL has been a name thrown around from time to time in the tablet universe, but the rumors are giving way to an official announcement this week on the 2goPad. The new 2goPad SL10 is a 10" device with a multi-touch display, Intel Atom N450 CPU (1.66GHz), 2GB of memory, Windows 7 and a rather sleek design. It's one of the first Windows tablet PCs to come to market, and it includes 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, two USB ports, a 250GB hard drive, and an SD card reader. Since it runs a full version of Windows 7, it can handle Flash, HTML5 and any other format that Windows 7 can handle. The company also bundles... Read more...
CTL. Ever heard of 'em. Probably not, but these days, it's not surprising to hear that a company you've never known existed is making a tablet to compete with the iPad. Everyone's trying it at this point, and it looks as if Samsung's Galaxy Tab has been dubbed the main competition thanks to deals with four U.S. carriers. But not everyone wants a tablet tied to a data contract, and the 2go Pad is definitely aiming for the market that doesn't. This slick new device is available to pre-order now, and it features an Intel Atom N450 CPU, 250GB hard drive, 2GB of DDR2 memory, Flash video support (YouTube,... Read more...
It's astrophysics, not rocket science, actually. Frustrated with the complexity and expense of running computations on big arrays of supercomputers, Dr. Gaurav Khanna of the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth has assembled 8 Playstation 3s into a cluster, loaded it up with Linux, and used it to perform massive calculations seeking to prove the existence of so-called gravity waves. Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity postulates that such waves exist, but it's never been proven.He also says that the console's Cell processor, co-developed by Sony, IBM and Toshiba, can deliver massive amounts...

Have a pair of ATI Radeon X1900 series cards and want to put them to good use when you're not gaming? FAHInfo.org has the g2 on maximizing your WU processing... "Now you need to get the GPU ID in order to tell the GPU client which GPU to send the cores to. The GPUs are numbered starting from zero so the GPU ID number is always one less than the screen number. In the example above, where monitor 1 is attached to the primary output of card 1: GPUID=0, and monitor 2 is connected to the primary output of card 2: GPUID=1. If you have... Read more...
Sounds like a simple operation, right? Well if you've never done it before, it could be a little difficult. I've personally seen a few processors covered with an entire tube of paste, and it's not a pretty sight. Depending on who you ask, you might get a few different answers on how the goo should be applied. Hardware Secrets throws in their 2 cents, with a 12 page guide on how to correctly apply thermal grease."With processors working at higher and higher clock speeds, a certain concern with thermal dissipation is necessary, because the higher the clock used, the higher the heat produced. To give... Read more...
