Featuring a 13.3-inch IPS display, a 720p HD webcam, 12 hours of battery life and a 5th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, this $399 and above laptop will be hitting shelves on September 17 in the United States and Canada.




With lower models set to include Intel Celeron or Core i3 processors, the Dell Chromebook 13 will come packaged with up to 8GB of RAM and are bundled with a bunch of Dell software and extras including Dell SonicWALL (a VPN app), Sell Secure Mobile Access, Dell Wyse vWorkplace desktop visualization and more. This could be seen as bloatware or as something extremely useful - that is up for you to decide.

Upgradeable lightweight notebooks are now here thanks to Eurocom

By: Chris Smith | More News: Laptops | Posted: Jul 24, 2015 8:31 am

"Upgradeability is a core tenet of all Eurocom systems" reads a recent press release from this high-end portable technology company. Eurocom's latest release, the Shark 4, is no different with its changeable wireless card compatibility, M.2 4G/LTE module support, replaceable keyboard and even the ability to change your display to suit your needs.




Further supporting DDR3-1600 RAM up to 16GB, three storage devices, an optical drive and more - this product strays away from Eurocom's general tech-heavy products but still includes customization to suit all needs.


Complete wth an Intel i7-4720HQ processor, an NVIDIA GTX 960M and the choice between two 15.6" displays (matte or gloss), the technology within is certainly nothing to sneeze at either way, but it's the extra options that Eurocom believes will set it apart from the rest.

Acer's new Windows 10-powered Cloudbook priced at $169 is awesome

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: Jul 19, 2015 12:38 pm

Windows 10 is right around the corner with its July 29 release, but an interesting new tidbit is that Acer is preparing a seriously cheap Windows 10-powered notebook, the Cloudbook, at just $169.




While Chromebooks might not have ignited the smaller notebook market, a Windows 10-powered offering might be a low-end enough market that has people interested. Acer is set to release two models; an 11-inch and 14-inch model with the 11-inch model starting from $169. There's no pricing on the 14-inch model, but we should expect the Cloudbooks to launch next month, just after Windows 10 flies out..


So where Microsoft can't compete against Chromebooks in the super-cheap market, it will compete against them at the interface level. Microsoft's operating system is much more known than Google's, and has a far bigger feature set. At just $169, Acer could quickly secure itself some serious Windows 10 market share, especially when it comes to the education and low-end markets.
