The Water-Proof PC -- for Computing Poolside?

The only problem with summer (other than mosquitoes, droughts, and bad hair days) is the difficulty of computing. Sit inside at your desk, missing out on the beautiful days? Or perhaps fry your genitalia as you sit poolside with a laptop on your lap? While it's only a concept at this point, the Swim-Rings PC looks like it has some real potential (for the absurdly rich Hollywood agents among...

$30,000 Laptop Has Ivory Keys, Violin-Wood Casing, and Diamond 'Mouse'

Are you bored already with your MacBook Air? Some really really rich people are -- well, it's okay for running around with, but not so much for the personal library. What's a tragically wealthy laptop user to do? Singulum has come up with a great way to relieve such unfortunates of at least $30,000 dollars, the approximate starting price for the brand's newest luxury laptops. The laptops are...

Voodoo PC's Super-Thin Envy Laptop Could Be a MacBook Air Killer

Oh my. First you're slicing cake with the MacBook Air, then you're looking to steal its market share. Lenovo, you can't afford to be too smug either. Voodoo's $2,099, carbon fiber Envy 133 -- out July 20 -- isn't a gaming rig. It is, however, a 13.3-inch ultra-portable with LED-backlit display, 1,280 x 800 resolution, Intel GMA X3100 graphics, 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SP7700 processor, HDMI, 2x...

Intel Launches New 'Atom' Processor For Low-Cost Laptops

Intel is prepping to take over the low cost laptop and PC market with its newly unveiled Atom line of processors, which joins Core 2, Pentium, and Celeron in the chipmaker's lineup. Formerly codenamed Diamondville and Silverthorne, Atom is an ultra-low power, low cost chip that is aimed at machines like the ASUS Eee, UMPC's, MID's, and may have had a spot in the next version of the OLPC had...

First MacBook Air Reviews In, and They're Not Entirely Positive

The first reviews of Apple's skinny and sexy MacBook Air are in. The laptop is less than two-tenths-of-an-inch thick, but such slimness comes at a price ($1800-$3000). Even that price, the Air's minimalist hardware will make the Air a poor choice for no-compromise users, according to the first reviews posted today (the Air itself won't be in stores for another two weeks). Edward C Baig from USA...

World's Tiniest Computers

In the world of computing, small is in. Be they laptops or desktops, PCs keep getting smaller. And that's not a bad thing. Smaller means a laptop is easier to toss in a backpack without feeling like you're carrying a computer, or that a desktop can be moved to the living room without looking too tacky. Bottom line: Smaller PCs can be hidden completely from view. We took a walk around CES...

Graffiti-Splotched Gadgets All the Rage In 2008

Sure, iPods are cool, but they're just not the status symbol they once were, and there's nothing cool about having sleekest slimmest laptop on the market if everyone else has one, too. Companies are realizing this and know that people, especially fiercely independent Americans, have a need to be different. So, as a way to make their products stand out (and their customers feel a little more...

Enough Storage Space For Everything? Terabyte Laptop Coming

Good news for digital packrats who are always on the move: Asus is gearing up to release a notebook computer with a pair of 500 gigabyte hard drives inside. This one terabyte of hard disk space will be a first for a laptop -- and should give you enough memory to carry around at least the vast majority of your media collection. With enough space for 350 feature length movies or 250,000 four-minute...

MacBook Design Flaw Can Lead to Permanent Data Loss

Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro owners should be aware of a design flaw that may lead to unrecoverable data loss, claims Retrodata, a data-recovery firm based out of the United Kingdom. The company says that MacBooks manufactured in China and equipped with a 2.5 inch Seagate SATA hard drive with a Firmware version 7.01 may have faulty read/write heads that become dislodged from the hard drive's...

MacBooks Get Upgrades -- Should You Have Waited?

Not content to sit back and bask in the praise for Leopard, Apple has given its MacBook line a bit of a freshening. None of the specs are a huge boost, but they will bring some welcome performance increases to the slick portables, and, like so many of Apple's surprise updates, will be enough to make anyone who purchased last week wish they'd waited. All the MacBooks have moved to the Santa Rosa...
