Computex is really starting to ramp up now, as ASUS has taken the covers off its brand new Eee Pads. Of most interest will be the 12-inch EP121, which sports Intel's Core 2 Duo CULV processors, Windows 7, and a reputed 10-hour Asus A42-A6 battery life. Sort of like a laptop sans the keyboard, you might say, which is probably why ASUS is also touting a "hybrid" dock/keyboard solution for those times when you want some more tactile feedback to your typing
Fujitsu(Fujitsu LifeBook P7120 Battery)'s Lifebook P770 places a strong emphasis on portability without compromising on performance, with the inclusion of a low-voltage Intel Core i7 processor.
MSI(MSI BTY-S11 Battery) has shown for the first time its laptop computer with a keyboard that flips over to reveal a sensor pad for pen input. The Sketch Pad, which is still a prototype, was unveiled at the same time the company launched a Windows 7-based tablet PC.
When you get a new laptop everything is working perfectly given that you've got the good fortune and it's not dead on arrival. Then things start to wear and tear, here's a crack, there is a dent but the UM08A31 battery often dies rather fast, and that's not a natural consequence of age. Lithium-Ion batteries die on their own, but not in the one year time frame some people manage to kill theirs.
The Core i5 processor at the heart of the NV7901u is an improvement from the Core i3 in the NV7915u, and its advantages are most obvious in its improved multitasking benchmark scores. In terms of overall specs, this Gateway is a close match to the Samsung NP-R580 we liked quite a bit in the last retail round-up. It performs nearly identically to other Core i5 laptops, including the Lenovo(Lenovo IdeaPad Y530 Battery) IdeaPad Y460.
Hitachi and LG(LG BTY-M52 Battery) have officially announced the HyDrive, an optical drive/solid state disk (OD/SSD) combo unit for notebook computers. It fits into the spot normally occupied by an optical drive. The first generation drives will feature either 32GB or 64GB of NAND flash memory and a SATA 3.0Gbps interface.
The RoG Connect feature is worthy of particular mention. An I/O-mounted, RoG-specific USB port enables you to hook the board up to another system/notebook that runs Windows and then overclock/tweak the Crosshair IV Formula remotely, which is very cool.
A contender for one of the best-looking AMD boards to date? Perhaps, and ASUS(Asus M6000N Batteries) has hit the nail on the head with the AMD Radeon-inspired red-and-black colour scheme set against angular heatsinks.
So what's not to like about the Zeros, and electric bikes in general? Well, at least for now, your range is very limited. The Zero guys say that you'll get between 30 and 60 miles to a charge, depending on how you ride. So you're not going to be making that ride to Yellowstone on a Zero any time soon. Besides, loading it up with luggage would only serve to reduce laptop battery life even further.
The MacBook(MacBook 13 MA255_A Battery)'s keyboard is full size, with keys that are curved to contain your fingers and highly responsive to your touch. Its low-profile design integrates perfectly into the unibody enclosure, so you'll get a comfortable experience whether you're typing a quick email or writing a lengthy research report. The keyboard also gives you one-touch access to music and video controls and Mac OS X features such as Dashboard and Exposé.
