    Asus Republic Of Gamers G551LM Gaming Notebook Review

    Gaming laptops are a hard needle to thread. On the one hand, you need something that’s portable enough to be considered an actual laptop. On the other, you need it to have enough power to handle some of the latest and greatest games available for PCs, and not at minimum graphics settings (which doesn’t count). Plus, it’s always nice if the computer also doesn’t look… Read More

    Fetchnotes Launches A Simple, Cloud-Based Note-Taking Service (That Twitter Users Will Love)

    Fetchnotes is a promising, lightweight note-taking app for list makers and idea-havers which looks deceptively simple. But that simplicity is actually one of Fetchnotes’ key selling points. It’s meant to be fast and easy to use.

  • Review: HP ProBook 5330m

    Does this thing look familiar to you? Granted, there are plenty of little differences, but at a first glance, what does this remind you of? If you said MacBook Pro, congratulations, we’re on the same wave length. The brushed metal finish, the keyboard, the black bezel around the screen… it all screams Apple. That’s all I’ll say on the matter, but I maintain that it had… Read More

  • Crunchdeal: Save $500 on a Toshiba R600 with OpenSolaris

    So here’s a deal, but it’s a bit odd. The Toshiba R600 is advertised as being Toshiba’s ultimate notebook, and for the price it better be. You can buy it from Toshiba’s website for $2,099 for the base model which includes a 160GB hard drive, 3GB of RAM, and a 12.1″ screen, and comes standard with Windows 7. But that’s not the deal.

  • Onkyo to sell beefed up version of Kohjinsha's dual-screen notebook

    I’m sure many of you remember the pretty cool-looking dual-screen notebook Japanese company Kohjinsha announced last month (it’s already available over here).

The result is the DX1007A5 [JP], which is slightly more expensive than the Kohjinsha original… Read More

  • AQ Amigo USB speaker sits comfortably atop your notebook screen

    Notebook speakers are generally the definition of suck. They tend to be flat, lifeless, and just plan bad, but then portable speaker sets aren’t exactly portable. The USB-powered AQ Amigo seems to be a nice solution though. Read More

  • The Dell Precision M6500 packs a Core i7 Extreme and high price tag

    Dell is serious about mobile computing. That is if you consider mobile computing touting around a full-power 8.5lbs, 17-inch notebook. At least with the new M6500, you won’t be compromising anything. Seriously, anything because the amount of computing power that the new M6500 packs into a mobile platform is impressive. Read More

  • Kohjinsha's futuristic dual-screen notebook

    Maybe it’s just me, but this dual-screen notebook Kojinsha started selling in Japan today [JP] looks very futuristic (and very cool) to me. The main selling point is that you get not one but two 10.1-inch LCD screens in a compact body (size: 280×210×19〜42mm, weight: 1.84kg). And you can even buy the DZ6KH16E, which looks like a normal notebook when you use just one of the screens, if… Read More
