We've been hearing for years that integrated graphics—meaning your computer doesn't have its own, separate graphics card—won't catch up to the beefier cards, but it'll be good enough some day soon. Hasn't happened yet. But these reported benchmarks of Intel's new Ivy Bridge processors from CPU World look pretty…
Who would have thought the future'd start with an ad in the back of Electronic News? But, on November 15, 1971 Intel announced its new 4004 processor—the first commercially available computer processor manufactured on a chip—and helped to usher in the Digital Age.
Intel's new Sandy Bridge-E chip reigns supreme—and we have the charts to prove it.
So much going on in the rumor mill: In the midst of plenty of talk about a Macbook Air refresh, retailers are reporting that their stocks of the entry-level Macbook is running low. Is a new model on the horizon?
The Acer TimelineX employs a no frills—but hardly utilitarian—design that's simple and clean. Combined with a Core i5 Sandy Bridge processor, 13.3-inch display, Nvidia GT 540M graphics and Dolby audio, it's a solid, inch-thick package that only lightens bank accounts by $780.
Welcome to this special MacBook Air edition of "Don't Buy an Apple Product." You should not buy a MacBook Air right now.
Apple does like to keep to schedule, so it's not entirely surprising to read they're planning two new MacBook Air models for this June/July. It's also unsurprising that they're to run on Sandy Bridge chipsets, and have Thunderbolt connectivity.
Back on February 9, we reported that the Adamo, Dell's sexy-yet-lacking ultrathin laptop, was no more. That didn't mean Dell was done with the genre, however, as it seems there's a new sexy, svelte model on the horizon.
Goodbye miniDisplay ports, and hello Thunderbolt: Apple's latest iMacs include the faster Thunderbolt connection, but that's not the only new addition from Intel. The computers, which come in 21.5 and 27-inch size options, also run on Intel's latest Sandy Bridge Core procession line.
The dwindling iMac stock we talked about earlier in the week does in fact appear to be related to a refresh, as further reports all but indicate a change is coming—and could arrive as early as next week.
According to Concord Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whom AppleInsider says has proven sources in Apple's supply chain, new MacBook Airs will go into mass production in May. This corroborates with a previous report saying a summer release for new MacBook Airs were likely. That update is expected to bring Sandy Bridge…
Let's face it, Apple's computers are gorgeous. Not many manufacturer's can match them on design, but this new MSI All-in-One looks like it came from the chopping block of Jony Ive's design desk.
Apple updates are often as predictable as the tides, which is why it's no surprise to hear that iMac supplies have started hitting some constraints. Apple usually refreshes its desktop line in the summer, and reports are gaining traction that new Sandy Bridge, Thunderbolt-toting iMacs are slated for the next few…
Today, on Steve Jobs' birthday, Apple updated its MacBook Pro line with much faster models. But you probably already guessed that. Unsurprisingly, they've now got an Intel Light Peak port (renamed as Thunderbolt), which can transfer data at 10Gb/s. Plus, a new HD camera for FaceTime, which costs $1 from the Mac App…
