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... Read more...

Here's an... interesting one. Habey USA isn't exactly known for pumping out vanilla machines, and the company's keeping it weird with their latest idea. The new 12" Touchscreen Intel Dual Core Atom Nvidia ION Panel PC doesn't have much of a name (the model number is PPC-6512), but that long-winded title tells you most everything you'd need...

Intel's results for the second quarter of 2011 are a model of strong execution, high performance, and continued market dominance. So much so, in fact, that writing these reports has actually become a teensy bit boring. (Note to Intel: We expect precious little sympathy.) The nature of some of the records has changed, and a few key figures... Read more...
One of the downsides to system reviews is that it's usually impossible to evaluate system reliability or performance over an extended period of time. Since boutique builders typically assemble rigs with a focus on solid warranties or top-level components, not being able to properly grade long-term reliability is an area of product coverage...

A couple of weeks back, we took a look at AMD's Llano mobile platform and we came away impressed. In the mobile space, Llano offers a capable quad-core CPU, with excellent DX11-class integrated graphics, in a very low power-envelope. Those things translate into good performance and solid battery life in a notebook, two highly desirable traits... Read more...

NextComputing has a thing for producing some pretty outlandish desktops. Most of them are built for field use. We're talking seriously rugged machines, designed for serious, serious workloads and unthinkable environments. But there's always been one major problem: power. You still needed whatever your destination was set for to have a power... Read more...

HTPCs aren't anything new. They've been around forever, it seems, and largely unchanged. But Acer's new living room PC is quite different, or, at least it's different than the norm. It's shaped differently, and ships with a very atypical control mechanism. It's the Revo RL100 media center, available with or without Blu-ray and designed to... Read more...

The company just announced an investment in ViVu, as part of the AMD Fusion Fund program. That's set up to make strategic investments in companies... Read more...
Is it a TV? Or a PC? Is it both? The world may never know! Sony's new VAIO L is one of the wildest all-in-one computers, and it honestly looks a lot like a 3DTV. Speaking of 3D, it definitely supports 3D, but would you expect anything else from such a pioneering voice in the 3D universe? The machine has a 24" LED-backlit multi-touch display,... Read more...
Today, HP makes Windows-based PCs. You knew that. But what if they start to ship PCs with something other than Windows on them? Five years ago, that question would largely result in laughter, but things are different these days. HP's new CEO already made clear that webOS would start to ship on PCs from HP eventually, but many assumed it would... Read more...
