"Weird" simply isn't sufficient to describe this laptop, now being auctioned at eBay.I purchased this a few years back as a project but it just ended up sitting in my closet. This is a rare Xentex Dual Screen Laptop. Each screen is 13.3" and one pivots so that one can be facing you and the other one facing the person sitting on the other side of the laptop. This was a prototype and is missing some parts but does turn on so I have no doubt someone can make this work with the right skills.This has to be the worlds largest laptop when unfolded which measures about 19.5" across when you unfold it....

Once Intel announced their dual-core Celerons it was only a matter of time until AMD countered with dual-core Semprons.  The bad news is that they're mainly available in China at this time, but that could change in the future.  Here's the specs on the dual-core Sempron:“AMD Sempron 2100+ processors adopt a 65nm process, and have a core frequency of 1.8GHz. Pricing in the China market is set at RMB 399 (US$55).”There is no word on when or if these particular CPUs will be availble in the U.S. but we don't think we'll be waiting too long.... Read more...
As with all rumors please take the following news item with a grain of salt until we get official confirmation or denial from Intel.It looks like the world of budget dual-core Intel chips is going to get a lot better in 2Q08:“Intel is planning to launch E1400 with a core frequency of 2GHz, 800MHz FSB, L2 cache of 512KB, and maximum TDP of 65W.

We've just posted a new article here at HotHardware, in which we evaluate X-Gaming's very cool, very retro, X-Arcade Tankstick Dual Controller with Trackball.  Just seeing this thing will take you back to your earlier years when gaming meant stopping by the local arcade and dropping quarters into a slot on your favorite machine.  Be warned though, after reading this article you may be compelled to connect the Tankstick to a home theater PC.  Playing favorites like Mr. Do, Galaga, and Street Fighter II on the big screen would definitely rock!  Click the link below and check...

Many of us have fond memories of playing video games in the arcade of a local bowling alley, popping 25 cents into the machine on a regular basis to keep the fun going.  Back then, that was the main way to get your game on, displaying your skills for all to see.  If you can remember dropping quarters into the slot of a machine running Pole Position, Galaga, Missle Command or any other game of that era, you might like the business model of X-Arcade. Reminiscent of the days when quarters ruled the video game market, X-Arcade has built a product base of custom game controllers... Read more...

Initially Microsoft showed little interest in the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project until the orders started to pour in.  The thought of all those laptops going to developing countries (and even Alabama school districts) sans a Windows OS seems to have made an impact.As soon as MS saw how many sales they were passing up, they decided that they'd develop a variant of XP specifically for the OLPC and its limited storage capacity.  Then we heard that there might be a dual-boot setup in the works, and now this:“Microsoft is not developing dual-boot Windows XP support for One Laptop Per...

While it's no secret that Microsoft has been working on getting Windows XP to run on the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) Foundation's XO-1, they also said in December that it wasn't exactly an easy process. Despite this, Wednesday, the chairman of the OLPC, Nicholas Negroponte, indicated they are working on a dual-boot version of the XO-1."We are working with them very closely to make a dual-boot system so that, like on an Apple, you can boot either one up. The version that's up and running of Windows on the XO is very fast, it's very, very successful. We're working very hard to do both," said Nicholas... Read more...
DDR3; it's the future of desktop system memory, plain and simple.  However, it's far from becoming the mainstream standard.  As it stands now, there is little benefit to DDR3 as high costs and latency makes DDR3 a less attractive option in its current state.  It's a familiar story.  If you recall, back when DDR2 was in its infancy, the same argument was made, with price and latency being major detractors.  Over time, however, the technology went through the normal maturation process, and with that, the latency factor was overcome and DDR2 became the dominant memory techology. Today we... Read more...

It was at this year's Consumer Electronics Show that we were first exposed to an Intel demo machine dubbed the ' V8' .  Intel wouldn't label the machine as a direct response to the QuadFX platform by AMD, but they did want to stress the point that enthusiasts could have a dual-socket, eight-core Intel powered machine today if they went with a workstation platform.  At the heart of the 'V8' machine were two quad-core Xeon processors, a dual-socket S5000XVN motherboard powered by the Intel 5000X-series chipset, and 4GB of RAM.  No doubt a powerful system.  But there was only so...

Last night in our Pre-Computex coverage, we saw that ASUS had some interesting looking displays set up at the front of their booth, but they were covered up and we weren’t able to take a close look at what was underneath.   Today, we were able to dig a little deeper into ASUS' booth, however, and hiding in one display was their new Crosslinx-enabled Republic of Gamers motherboards. Crosslinx is going to be featured on a couple of P35-based motherboards to enhance their PCI Express lane configurations for optimal performance in a multi-GPU configuration....
