  • Is the Asus Rampage III Extreme the best motherboard ever or overpriced hype?

    Moments ago, in our chatroom, I said that, if I had the money, I’d buy two Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboards: one to use and one to hang on the wall like a diploma. That’s how great the thing looks. Never mind that, simply reading the stats, it’s one of the best motherboard money can buy as of today—it looks as if it was designed by an extraterrestrial being, one… Read More

  • Gigabyte's little M528 internet notelet joins n810, S6


    I liked the Nokia n810 when I saw it at last year’s CES, and now there’s a little more competition in the mid-size internet device area as Gigabyte enters the stage with the M528. Bigger than a full-touchscreen mobile phone but smaller than a netbook, these devices comprise a questionable subgenus of the compact computing market. The question is, does this device do anything my G1… Read More

  • Gigabyte M528 available for $684.99

    Here’s the Gigabyte M528, reported earlier in the year to be available for pre-order at a whopping $1130. Looks like that figure has now been cut almost in half and the device is actually available for order at Expansys for $684.99, although it’s “not a stocked item and will be ordered from the distributor when you place an order.” As for the M528 itself, it’s kind… Read More

    Here’s yet another netbook/UMPC/mini laptop/tiny notebook/lapito contender, this one from Gigabyte.

  • 'Smart Touch' interface for Windows Mobile

    I can’t quite put my finger on it (pun intended) but this interface looks similar to something I’ve seen before. The “Smart Touch” UI by Gigabyte for its line of GSmart phones will be available in Europe “after May,” so there’s no telling if we’ll see something like this here in the US. Actually, we’ll see a lot of stuff like this if we… Read More

  • Gigabyte M700 UMPC unveiled at CeBIT

    Here’s the Gigabyte M700 UMPC. It’s got a 7-inch, 1024×600 display and comes with 2GB, standard. It’s powered by a 1.2GHz C7-M CPU from VIA and uses Vista Home Premium as the operating system, so that 2GB of RAM will surely come in handy. It’s pretty compact and weighs only 1.43 pounds and is said to have two webcams, GPS, and a WiMax-capable ExpressCard. Read More

  • More and more tiny notebooks coming this year

    This is going to be an interesting year. A year when a whole bunch of Asus Eee-like 7- to 9-inch notebooks are going to start coming out of the woodwork. An Everex version is coming out in less than a week at Walmart stores and, of course, there’s the actual Eee itself that’s available now. But throughout the year, we’ll see even more options — some most recently… Read More
