Dell's answer to the Asus Eee PC, the Inspiron 910, now has a date, according to reports. While there is still no confirmation as the price, which has been widely rumored as $299, it appears the netbook will be showing up "any time soon." According to Gizmodo, that day will be Friday, Sept. 5th. It should be noted this isn't the first date the 910 has "received;" an earlier rumor said the UMPC would show up on Aug. 22nd. Still with some of the support documentation showing up online, it's gotta be soon (keyboard, external optical drive, status LEDs).... Read more...

Off to school we go! Yes, it's that time of year again for many. But fear not! All is not lost, for it's also notebook hunting season. Of course, even if you enjoy going back to school, it's still a rare treat. After all, you are choosing a companion to help you stave off hours of boredom, and at the same time choosing an hombre to make your life a little easier. Mind you, this is one partner you will likely be stuck with for more than a year or two, so as always, choose carefully. For the majority of those in "back to school" mode, shopping for a notebook will be limited to ultraportables or traditional form factor notebooks (14.1" or 15.0" displays). Why, you ask? Well frankly,... Read more...
Our previous coverage of the Inspiron XPS Gen 2 was mainly intended for prospective gaming and performance sensitive buyers. However, this perspective doesn't completely explore the multimedia possibilities of the XPS Gen 2, which can be configured with Microsoft's MCE 2005. So of course, we had an Inspiron XPS Gen 2 from Dell configured with that OS and all the necessary multimedia add-ons for those curious about its full audio/video possibities.

Over the past year, it has been interesting to see the emphasis that the big names are willing to put on the "enthusiast" crowd, in regards to notebooks. In the past, notebooks have been targeted towards businessmen and the like. These days, however, the variety is so wide that there is a notebook targeted to just about every niche and need. Consider this: a few years ago there were a handful of names making true blue notebook gaming rigs, i.e. Alienware, albeit in small quantities.  But as the gaming generation grows, so does the interest in these powerful systems. So, it really comes as no surprised to us to see Dell and HP joining the fray. The difference is that Dell has really... Read more...

  With the next notebook refresh cycle right around the corner, we are taking the time to look at some of the more recently refreshed notebooks. In the meantime, there is a lot of buzz surrounding the AMD Turion platform, which we have been eagerly anticipating. The news so far (directly from a few system vendors) is that it does surprisingly well in power consumption. We are hearing that quasi-thin and light/lightweight desktop replacements using an 8-cell battery should get just under 200 minutes of use  This is just preliminary news we are hearing with what seems to be the first official batch of drivers and hardware. When compared to comparable Centrino systems, we are hearing that... Read more...
About three weeks ago, we tested a new Acer notebook powered by ATI's Mobility Radeon X700. With our testing complete, we found the Mobility Radeon X700 to be a well-balanced mobile GPU that offered very good performance, in a thin and relatively light form factor. Then, a few days after that article went live, we were contacted by representatives from NVIDIA and given an opportunity to test a different sort of animal. NVIDIA told us they'd be releasing a new mobile GPU meant for high-end, desktop replacement notebooks. What we ended up getting our hands on was a new Dell Inspiron XPS Gen 2 with a GeForce Go 6800 Ultra pushing the pixels. The GeForce Go 6800 Ultra incorporates all of the technology... Read more...
