Intel to Launch Trio of Graphics-Less Sandy Bridge CPUs

Intel will soon update its processor portfolio with some three new chips based on the Sandy Bridge architecture which, in a rather strange turn of events, will come with their on-board GPU disabled.

The reasons behind Intel’s decision are not known at this point in time, but we suspect that the chip maker is trying to get rid of some CPU dies that don’t have working on-board graphics.As VR-Zone has revealed, the three processors are the Core i5-2380P, Core i5-2450P and a somewhat older

iPad 2 vs Xyboard 10.1 – how does the successor to the Xoom stack up against the leader?

The iPad 2 was released quite a while ago, and it brought quite a few noticeable improvements over the first iPad, with the most important additions being the two cameras, dual core processor and double the amount of RAM. But the real purpose of the tablet was to bring Apple’s offer up to date with the competition – at the time, most manufacturers already had a dual core tablet on sale or in the works, and Apple was only competing with the single core iPad, which lacked a lot of the

Is the Samsung Galaxy Note a good substitute for a 7 inch tablet?

The most popular trend in the smartphone world was the ever increasing screen size – the average display size went from 2.8 inches to 4 inches in less than 5 years, and surprisingly, we’re still OK with the size of the handsets. One of the latest smartphones, however, breaks the mold with an oversized 5.3 inch HD display – I’m talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note, of course.

LG X-Note Z330 – Ultrabooks keep getting thinner, and more expensive

LG is really getting into the whole Ultrabooks game, and they look like they’re going to be very successful, as well, judging by the quality of their products and the reviews online (even though a lot of people say that their Ultrabooks are a direct rip-off of MacBooks, just because of the unibody design). The P330 and P220 are doing pretty well in South Korea, and hopefully they’ll reach western countries in the following months, heating up the competition (which currently consists of

Dell Precision M4600 – the pinnacle of Precision evolution

A little over a decade ago, if you needed to get some very resource intensive computing work done (like say, render some video footage or 3D objects), you simply had to have a powerful desktop computer, one which would’ve most probably consumed more than a few hundred watts of power at that.
And today, we’ve got powerful laptops that can do the same work that a big desktop-bound tower can, at the same price. The first models used to be big (still portable, though), but the latest laptops

HTC Edge – the first quad core smartphone is already on the way

Just a little over year ago, dual core processors in mobile devices were a new and extraordinary thing, yet today pretty much all of the high and mid-range smartphones and even low end tablets carry one inside, and it’s common as day to have two 1.5 GHz cores working at full speed inside a device that is supposed to fit in your pocket and last at least 6-7 hours of continuous work on a battery charge.

Motorola Droid RAZR vs Nokia Lumia 800 – the Android and Windows Phone 7 flagships go head to head

Samsung Illusion – Verizon’s illusion of a good smartphone deal

Verizon’s 4G LTE network is slowly expanding across the country, however at the moment, the difference in speed between LTE and the usual 3G/4G isn’t that great for most people (those who live closer to the towers get all the advantages, of course).

Why I Got Rid of My DROID Razr and Am Waiting for the Galaxy Nexus

The moment I heard about the DROID Razr I was extremely excited. I checked out the Droid Does web site constantly drooling over this phone.

It did land me this job here however, so I chalk that up as a major win in itself.

Sony Vaio F 3D – the ultimate entertainment laptop

Sony has always been good at making laptops, or any kind of electronics, really. But their Vaio line is the most well known in the computer world, and a lot of the times, it was compared to Apple’s MacBooks, while also being priced accordingly (in fact, a lot of Vaio laptops are still more expensive than MacBook Pros, believe it or not).
The Vaio F used to include relatively big laptops that could be used as desktop replacements, but were still small and light enough to be carried around –

Graphene Can Become Ink for Printers

Graphene is showing off its wonder material properties yet again, this time actually demonstrating, or being demonstrated to, have what it takes to liquefy.Granted, liquefy might not be the correct word, since graphene is more of a molecular compound than anything else, so terms like solid, liquid and gaseous don't really apply at that level.

Nonetheless, when speaking of a compound that is supposed to revolutionize technology by taking the place of silicon, and a lot of other materials, that

Remember the interesting HTC Ville we mentioned earlier this month? Well, a new image of the device popped up that appears to be an official rendering of the device showing its sexy brushed aluminium exterior and wrap-around display.

Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 – one of the best point and shoot 3D cameras on the market

For better or for worse, it looks like 3D is here to stay. Manufacturers are pushing it quite heavily, even though neither consumers nor businesses don’t really see the point of 3D as it is right now (maybe if it was immersive and holographic, then it would be more useful ). The biggest players in the field – Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and XPanD even created an alliance to promote the technology, so they’re definitely serious about 3D everywhere.

Though NAND Flash memory isn't all that affordable now, it definitely isn't going to stay so expensive forever.After all, that would be counterproductive, particularly when it would prevent the solid state drive

HTC G1 Gets Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich Port [Courtesy of XDA]

It seems that some crafty developer has set out to prove Google and HTC wrong by showing them that it is possible to run ICS on devices that have “incompatible hardware”. Some fella going by the name jcarrz1 over at XDA has posted a video showing the oldschool HTC G1 of all devices, running a build of the latest Android 4.0 software.
As you will notice in the video below, the G1 seems to be struggling fairly bad at completing rather menial tasks such as swapping from screen to screen and

Asus Transformer Prime vs the iPad 2 – looks like the iPad 3 will have some catching up to do

The iPad may have been the revolutionary device that started the whole tablet craze (and it still is the bestselling device in the niche), but what kept it going were the dozens of different Android tablets that followed soon after and expanded the market to include professionals, businesses and people who can’t afford the iPad. Many were hoping that the iPad 2 would change that and will give Apple complete dominance over the market, but that did not happen, even though the iPad 2 is selling

HTC Rezound vs the iPhone 4S – Apple’s device is getting too old for this stuff

The iPhone 4S came out just recently, and while it was not the next revolutionary iPhone 5 that most fans were expecting (especially after so much time without an update), it is a decent smartphone. But decent doesn’t really cut it nowadays, and if you want to stay in the business on the mobile market, you need to bring out the best you’ve got. This didn’t really apply to Apple until recently, but it’s starting to catch up with their iDevices, too.

Choosing a portable media player – iPod Touch, Galaxy Player or neither?

The portable media players market is currently dominated by the iPod family, but it’s not some Mafia-style reason like them holding up everyone, it’s a simple matter of lack of being the best in the field – there are quite a few competitors around, yet none of them have managed to release a product that is anywhere near as good as the iPod Touch, Nano, Classic or Shuffle. I don’t think it should come as a surprise, either – Apple really knows how to create great products.
