ASUS is a relative newcomer to the smartphone market in the US, but they have had worldwide presence for quite some time. Overseas customers have long enjoyed access to devices such as a giant 7-inch smartphone that makes American phablets look tiny by comparison. Even though most consumers are no longer put off by holding up 5 - 6 inch phones to their head, 7 inches is stretching it. So, when it came time to make inroads here in the states, ASUS went a slightly different route with the Padfone X Mini. As was the case with the Padfone X, released earlier this year,... Read more...
With a GoPro IPO on the horizon, it's safe to say that what started as something that extreme sports fanatics took advantage of is about to becoming a mainstream hit. In a lot of ways, the tiny action camera already is. Now, the BMW Group's Technology Office has partnered with GoPro to build the first-ever in-car integration between GoPro and an automobile. Cars equipped with BMW Apps or Mini Connected platforms will be able to configure and control a GoPro. Starting in July 2014, the integration will be functional on all model year 2012 and later BMW Group vehicles equipped with the BMW Apps or... Read more...

CES 2012 started the next netbook revolution, with Intel's newest Atom CPUs at the helm. Today, HP is (re)joining the crowd, with the newest Mini machine launching. The HP Mini 1104 is the latest Mini for business in education. It's priced at $399, weighs 2.78 pounds and has a 10.1" display. There's also a 93% full-size keyboard, a battery that's good for up to 9 hours, a dual-core Intel Atom N2600, an integrated VGA webcam, integrated Bluetooth and a hard drive accelerometer that acts as a motion sensor for protection if the Mini is dropped. There's also Wi-Fi, spill-resistant keyboard, VGA output,... Read more...
Zotac is one of a select few companies that have fully embraced the ultra-small form factor and home theater PC markets. Although they’re also known for producing custom, high-end graphics cards, and an array of motherboards, which include a smorgasbord or mini-ITX options, Zotac’s Zbox and Mag lines of mini PCs are quite diverse. A quick jaunt to their website reveals over 30 ultra small form factor designs that leverage technology from Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, and even VIA. What’s also interesting about Zotac’s mini-PCs are their extensive feature sets. Zotac seemingly crams... Read more...

Apple's Mac mini hadn't seen a substantial update for about a year, but with Intel's Sandy Bridge-based second generation Core processor family arriving in 2011, it was only a matter of time before one of those chips found favor with Apple's tiniest desktop. The Mac mini design really hasn't changed all that much in the year or so it took the folks in Cupertino to swap out the Core 2 Duo for a Core i5. In terms of volume and dimension, it's almost exactly the same as the 2010 edition, but with a major addition—support for Thunderbolt... Apple's Sandy Bridge-Based Mac Mini Review... Read more...
Apple's Mac mini hadn't seen a substantial update for about a year, but with Intel's second generation Core processor family arriving in 2011, it was only a matter of time before one of those chips found favor with Apple's tiniest desktop. The Mac mini design really hasn't changed in the year or so it took the folks in Cupertino to swap out the Core 2 Duo for Intel's new Core i line of processors. In terms of volume and dimension, it's almost exactly the same as the 2010 edition, but with a major addition--that port between the HDMI socket and those four USB 2.0 ports.... Read more...
We know you just purchased your last laptop, but already HP's giving you a reason to ponder an upgrade. The company's launching a major stash of new gear today, and we'll start with the new consumer machines. As part of a major notebook expansion, the gamer-centric HP Envy 14 is seeing an update. While the exterior is basically the same, the machine now features second-generation Intel Core processors, USB 3.0 ports and a new HP imagepad that relies on image sensor technology for "Advanced Gesture Support." You'll also find an etched alloy case, a 14.5" LCD, Beats Audio, and HP's SimplePass for... Read more...
HP is definitely on a roll. First comes a slew of new notebooks and a Wireless Adapter, and now the company is issuing a pair of new netbooks. Way to round things off, guys! The newly redesigned Mini 210 is a sleeker, slimmer and more powerful Mini than what you're used to, equipped with built-in Wi-Fi, a webcam, microphone, near-full-size keyboard and a dual-core Intel Atom N550 or Atom N455/N475. The unit supports DDR3 memory, measures under 1" thick, weighs 3.1lbs. and comes standard with an inline 6-cell battery that is supposedly good for 10.75 hours of battery life. It's available in charcoal,... Read more...
Another day, another netbook. This time, it's a new one from Dell, and it's another in the Inspiron Mini 10 lineup. Dell's Mini 10 range has been around for nearly as long as 10" netbooks have been around, and the new Mini 1018 borrows styling cues from the curvy Inspiron R notebook line and includes mostly just the basics at a lower price point. You won't find a Broadcom media accelerator or an SSD here, but you also won't find a $500+ price tag. The Mini 1018 is a lower-end netbook meant for those who just need to handle the basics, offering a single-core Atom N455 processor, DDR3 memory, a 250GB... Read more...
Who would have guessed years ago that an entire sector of laptops could be created just for education, and then regular consumers would go out and buy them for themselves? That's practically what happened with the OLPC XO and netbook craze, and amazingly, it's all still going strong. HP has been a huge player in the netbook market, and today they're introducing yet another small notebook. This one's an education-focused Mini netbook designed to help schools around the world acquire affordable, reliable computing technology, and it goes by the name Mini 100e. The e, of course, stands for education.... Read more...
If it's not one thing, it's another. In other words, if it's not a touch-enabled slate PC, it's a touch-enabled notebook. HP is getting in on the action at CES, today introducing a new line of TouchSmart notebook and netbook machines. The highlight of the revised lineup is the company's first-ever touch Mini PC, but that's far from all that the firm rolled out. Touch was clearly in style with the TouchSmart tm2 and Mini 5102, both of which are further detailed below. As for pricing, the 5102 should be in the United States this month for $399 (Starting MSRP), while the TouchSmart tm2 will be available... Read more...
HP's Mini range of netbooks have been well respected in the industry, and while they were never as instrumental as Asus in the explosion of the netbook as a whole, they've really managed to nail their niche. From the start, the HP Mini was one of the most fashionable netbook lines out there, boasting subtle curves, a uniform keyboard, gorgeous styling cues and a larger-than-average trackpad. By and large, the Mini lineup hasn't changed too much since its introduction, but that has mainly been the case because Windows XP was pretty much the only operating system available for it (Linux alternatives...
