10 Hot All-In-One Computers on the Market Today
Just add a mouse and keyboard to the equation and you're ready to roll.
The 25 Coolest (and Most Unconventional) Keyboards
Here’s a list of some of the coolest and strangest keyboards out there.
With the Eee PC 901 shipping (or about to ship) worldwide, who in their right mind would buy the now outdated Eee PC 900? Think of it, for an extra $50 you get twice the processor at half the power usage. Thus, in an attempt to sell its remaining stock, Asus is now issuing a $100 rebate on all Eee PC 900s sold between today and July 31st.
The rebate brings the Eee PC 900’s current price-tag of $550 down to a competitive $450. A few noteworthy differences in the two models are as follows. The 901 has the more efficient atom processor, a bigger battery, better microphone, sleeker design, and an overclocking/underclocking feature. However, both models have the same screen size and resolution and more-or-less the same features. So if you’re tight on money, you may want to give the 900 a shot.
The Radeon HD 4850 is AMD’s upcoming budget powerhouse and little brother to the upcoming Radeon HD 4870. The architecture details are being kept secret for now, but PC Perspective was given a card to benchmark and review.
At this point, we know is that the Radeon HD 4850 is a single-slot, 512 MB card with two DVI outputs and one DVI to HDMI converter. According to our good friend GPU-Z, the HD 4850 runs on 55-nm technoology, similar to that of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX+. It has a 625 MHz core clock and 993 MHz GDDR3 memory. These numbers don’t seem like much when compared to similarly priced Intel cards, but benchmarks show that clock speed isn’t everything.
The Roadrunner is currently the world’s fastest supercomputer, a $100 million machine that sustained a processing speed of 1 Peta flop during a 2 hour test on May 25th.
This breakthrough took engineers at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and IBM Corp 6 years to complete. Roadrunner is twice as fast as IBM’s Blue Gene and is intended for simulating nuclear weapon detonations as well as for other applications in engineering, medicine and science.
David Turek, vice president of IBM’s supercomputing programs was quoted saying that some elements of Roadrunner can be traced to popular video games, and in some senses Roadrunner is a souped up Playstation 3.
You’re looking at the Sharp WS016SH UMPC. Yeah it doesn’t have a cool name yet, but this HTC-Shift looking UMPC is almost as small as a PSP and it runs Windows Vista! It has a sleek black glossy finish with a slide-out qwerty thumbboard.The 5″ screen has a glossy coating and is touch sensitive with a resolution of 1024×600.
Other specs include an Intel Atom Centrino 1.33Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 2 Megapixel Camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, a MicroSD slot and OneSegTV (Japanese Mobile Digital TV).
NVIDIA officially announced the new GeForce GTX 200 family of GPUs (graphics processing units) today. The first two cards, the GTX 280 and GTX 260 video cards, will be released on June 17th and June 26th respectively.
The GTX 280 will replace NVIDIA’s 9800 GTX as their flagship single-gpu processor. It is reportedly 50% faster than last year’s 8800 GX2, which is quite an achievement when one considers late GX2’s multi-GPU architecture.
It’s always nice to get rid of extra cables whenever you can. Before you know it external drives and USB hubs can overflow your desk with their frustrating cables, getting in your way when you need to get to something. That’s where this 3-in-1 Data Tray Docking System from Brando comes in handy.
The 3.5 inch dock comes with two ports that can house any combination of the included 4-port USB hub, multi-Card reader, or a 2.5 inch SATA enclosure. Simply install the dock into an empty slot on the front of your computer and you’re ready to go! The hot-swappable nature of the dock allows you to add and remove functions as needed.
Have you noticed lately the upsurge in sub-compact notebooks? The Asus Eee line, the MSI Wind, HP and Dell’s new offerings… In a time when gas and food prices continue to rise, nearly everyone’s budgets are being tried, every dollar is being stretched further. Perhaps economics is one reason for these tiny machines sudden proliferation, but one of the ways these sub-compact notebooks keep the prices down is by bundling them with open source software.
Canonical, the company behind the Linux-based OS Ubuntu, plans to seize the moment by creating its own version of the popular distro for sub-compact notebooks called Ubuntu Netbook Remix, which it recently revealed at Computex earlier this week. The OS is a trimmed down and optimized version of its regular OS, with an interface that’s better attuned to the sub-compact market. The interface is sleek even at this point in development (if a bit brown), and includes features like tabbed window navigation, and optimization for Intel’s new Atom mobile processor line.
Microsoft has introduced new high tech language translation software. The software can translate from one language to another so fast that you could use it to translate instant messages in real time. Type it in english and hit send. The other person would then receive it in Chinese.

Via Technologies has released their newest line of processors called the Nano, designed for lower energy level electronic devices. Other more powerful processors are too hard on batteries for UMPC’s, making this low energy chip ideal for all small notebook, smartphone, and UMPC manufacturers.
This line of processors will be directly competing with Intel’s Atom processors.
Via Technologies claims the Nano will offer up to 2-3 times the performance of Via’s C7 processor line while featuring the same low power requirements.
The Nano is Via’s first line of 64-bit superscalar, speculative out-of-order processors.
The Nano Chips are manufactured by Fujitsu using 65nm process technology, and have 94 million transitors; about twice as many as the previous C7.
If you had purchased a US$348 notebook from Walmart last Christmas, it could very well have been the Acer Aspire 5315. This sub-$400 notebook came equipped with an 80GB hard drive, 512MBs of RAM, 15.4 inch glossy widescreen and a 1.73Ghz Celeron M540 Processor.
Though performance was zippy with the single core, many buyers of the budget notebook had gripes about its poor battery life and high chassis temperature. This was due to it’s Celeron processor, which does not have Intel SpeedStep Technology.
