The Dell Inspiron Duo is an impressive sight. It's not often that we're this enamored by a device's physical design, but the Dell Inspiron Duo simply does it for us. The machine is a feat of engineering, and it really redefines the convertible laptop segment. This 10.1" machine is part netbook, part tablet, but unlike many rivals, it doesn't compromise much in terms or portability and form factor to be both. When you open up the package, it looks like a Mini 10 or any other 10" netbook. But once the lid is open, a simple press on the LCD allows it to swivel around and lock into place, in reverse....

There are some companies that stick to what's commonly accepted. No real risk-taking. And then there are some companies who think outside of the box on concept products, but they never actually take the leap of faith to produce them. But Dell has shown to be a risk-taker, first with the wildly thin Adamo XPS laptop, then with the 5" Dell Streak, and now with the Inspiron duo. The duo is called a convertible tablet, but it's actually unlike any convertible tablet to come before it. It's kind of difficult to believe that Dell managed to not only pull this off, but to do so in a way that's acceptable... Read more...
If you pay close attention to the laptop world, you may remember a product from last year called the Lenovo U1 Hybrid. It was a convertible tablet two-in-one device from Lenovo, showcased primarily at CES. But the showcasing ended there. The product has since hit a wall and will likely never reach mass production, much to the dismay of tech enthusiasts who loved the initiative that Lenovo was taking. It was a daring and bold product, but even Lenovo recognized that it would only ever be a niche device. Now, it looks like Dell has picked up where Lenovo dropped off. The Inspiron Duo is equally daring,... Read more...
Plug in two drives: Sharkoon has endowed its popular QuickPort with a second hard drive slot, now offering its docking station for externally housed mass-storage in the model "SATA QuickPort Duo".With the Sharkoon QuickPort, a 2.5" or 3.5" SATA hard drive can be quickly and easily connected to computers without permanent installation in an external enclosure. Now, a second HDD slot allows the QuickPort Duo to service two hard drives at once, irrespective of whether they are 2.5" or 3.5" drives. The two slots are covered by folding covers with small cut-outs for notebook hard drives. Both smaller... Read more...
Wolfdale is Intel’s first 45nm based dual-core design, and is an interesting product beyond first glance. When it was first announced, there was a bit of doubt throughout the industry of the chip’s viability in the market. The doubt was that it would be foolish of Intel put major weight behind a dual-core processor architecture, as the future is clearly quad-core processors and beyond. More cores are always better, right? Why would Intel continue pushing dual-core models when quad-core models are getting more and more cost efficient?   That's a fair question...Read on for our evaluation... Read more...
It has been surprising and frankly somewhat satisfying to see the success to date of the "Wolfdale" core architecture in Intel’s Core 2 lineup of processors.

Just in case you hopped right down to the news and missed the fresh link at the top of the page, we’re writing to let you all know that we have just posted a new article here at HotHardware in which we evaluate the features and performance of Intel’s recently released, Wolfdale-based Core 2 Duo E8500 processor.  The E8500 uses Intel’s 45nm Penryn derived Wolfdale core, with a 3.16GHz clock speed, 6MB of L2 cache, and support for SSEE4.1.  Overall, even in its stock configuration this processor was a strong performer, while consuming less power than Intel’s previous generation 65nm products. ...

Intel fans have been patiently waiting for the company to release their lineup of refreshed Core 2 Duo and Quad products. Intel started hyping these revised components late last year, and they were expected to hit the market in January of this year. While Intel technically hit that date with the release of one 45nm component, it was the ultra-expensive Core 2 Extreme QX9650, which sells for over $1,000. Not really the type of component that everyone can get their hands on. Nevertheless, the current generation of 65nm Core 2 products continued to fall in price, and with no real competition...

We've just posted a new article exploring the performance and overclockability of Intel's upcoming Core 2 Duo E6750 processor. The E6750 differs from the older and similarly clocked E6700 in that its front side bus frequency has been increased to 1333MHz, but this isn't a simple speed bump. The E6750 is also based on a new stepping and revision of the Conroe-core which resulted in some excellent overclocking. How does almost 4GHz with the stock air-cooler sound? Yeah, we thought you'd liek that.  Click the link below and check it out...Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Performance Preview... Read more...
Over the last year or so, since Intel's Core microarchitecture and Conroe core were ready to be unveiled at the Intel Developers Forum in early March '06, Intel has been more open and has allowed the media a view into more details regarding upcoming products much earlier than they had before.  You don't have to take our word for it, however.  Simply look around at all of the early performance previews out of IDF, and the steady flow of announcements regarding Intel's 45nm manufacturing process, metal gate transistors, the Terascale project, Larrabee, Penryn, Nehalem, and a number of other projects,...

Dan Warne from APCMag.com spent some time with Intel's Mooly Eden at the Intel Developer's Forum going on in Beijing and has some more information posted regarding Enhanced Intel Dynamic Acceleration Technology. We reported last week that EIDAT would be available with Penryn, but according to the story on APCMag.com, the technology will be available in the upcoming mobile Santa Rosa platform first. "We call this processor Core 2 Duo but really it's Core 2 Duo on steroids. This microprocessor is going to be more powerful than the previous generation," said Intel's mobility chief, Mooly Eden....

The popular "Extreme" line of Core 2 CPUs is being developed for notebooks that require the bleeding edge in CPU performance for what ever task you can throw at them. It seems mobile gamers of the world can start celebrating. Now if we can only cram some more powerful GPUs in those packages too... Intel is said to be preparing a pair of dual-core Core 2 Extreme processors specifically developed for gamer-friendly notebooks, the first coming in Q2/Q3, the second arriving as a follow-up in Q4. So claim Taiwanese motherboard-maker moles cited by Chinese-language site HKEPC. Codenamed... Read more...
Our friends over at Lost Circuits have an article on-line this morning with their thoughts regarding Intel's upcoming 45nm Penryn core and 45nm high-k and metal gate fabrication process. "On January 26, 2007, Intel went public with the demonstration of their first processor core - code name Penryn - manufactured on a 45 nm dry lithography and running several operating systems at roughly over 2 GHz core speed. The manufacturing process - P1266 - has been working since January 2006 for the manufacture of the highest density SRAM cell array in the industry and is based on bringing back metal gates...
