When we think of technophiles, many think mostly of guys, but there are a huge number of tech fans out there who are women. These ladies often are stuck using the rather manly looking accessories for their notebooks and netbooks.
Typically, bags for carrying notebooks are far from girly, but iSkin has a new line of bags just for the ladies. The line is called silo and includes five prints and three bag designs. The prints include Digital Camo, Happy Friends, Royal, Ami, and Karl the Ninja.
The three bag styles include the large Tote measuring 16" x 12" x 7" with a laptop section and pockets for other gear. The Slim is a laptop sleeve only with a compact form. The messenger is a bag with space for a notebook and other gear as well. All of the bags will hold notebooks 13 to 15" in size. Pricing ranges from $140 to $150 depending on the style.
Despite earlier reports that said ASUS' first Ion 2 based netbook in the form of the Eee PC 1201PN would include the use of NVIDIA Optimus technology, turns out this isn't going to be the case.
The discrete GeForce 201M GPU in this unit runs continuously and while Intel's IGP is of course nestled inside, there is no switching hardware that allows Optimus to auto-switch the GPUs depending on load scenarios (for which reason, a simple firmware update won't enable it either).
Needless to say, battery life will be woeful as a result, but apparently ASUS rushed this first model so they could have it ready by late next month and claim it as being the first next-gen Ion netbook to market.
We can put this down as one of those things that are so simple it's hard to believe that no one has done it before. Anytime I plug in a new notebook or gadget in my house I have to unplug something else. All my outlets in the office are full.
Elecom has a new device that plugs in between the cord that runs for the wall to your notebook power brick and the power brick. The electricity flows through the adapter and provides power to the one or two additional plugs the adapter adds.
The adapter can be purchased in dual prong or grounded three prong styles. Pricing is unknown, but they can't be that expensive. I want a bunch of these things.
Deal of the Day: Acer Aspire One AO532H-2223 10.1" Atom N450/ 1GB/ 160GB/ W7 Starter Netbook - $274.99 Shipped Free
Our Deal of the Day today is the Super Biiz - Acer Aspire One AO532H-2223 10.1" Atom N450/ 1GB/ 160GB/ W7 Starter Netbook - $274.99 Shipped Free.
Offer: Get the Acer Aspire One AO532H-2223 10.1" Netbook for just $274.99 with free shipping. It features the Intel Atom N450 1.66GHz CPU, 10.1"(1024x600) TFT LCD w/ LED blacklight, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, Windows 7 Starter, webcam, and more!
You might recall back at CeBIT we talked a bit about a new Eee netbook coming called the 1018P. Well that notebook has been caught running free.
The machine uses the Atom N455 processor with a N475 option and has Bluetooth 3.0. The most interesting bit for a netbook is the inclusion of USB 3.0 ports. All that hardware is crammed inside a nice looking aluminum chassis.
The downside to an otherwise well provisioned machine is that it doesn't have Ion graphics or HDMI out. It does offer VGA out though and a 10.1-inch screen. We still don't know how much the beastie will cost you.
Acer has more plans for its Aspire One netbook line-up with word that the company is looking to bring out one with a low-wattage AMD processor aboard.
This processor is said to be still in the works and by AMDs standards it has a super low TDP. It is the AMD V105 "Geneva" processor of which is single-core, but its TDP is just 9W! - The chip operates at 1.2GHz and is based on AMD's K10 architecture, so it will have what it takes to provide superior performance to Atom.
The Aspire One 521 netbook itself will include a 10.1-inch screen, support for DDR3 memory, integrated Radeon HD 4225 graphics and Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity as well as WiFi and Gigabit Ethernet. The battery is said to power this netbook for 7 hours.
No word on pricing or availability as yet; we'll keep you posted.
I am not a big fan of Mac computers, but it still pains me to see one torn apart. Ifixit has posted up its teardown of the new MacBook Pro Core i5 15-inch notebook.
The machine had a 2.54GHz Core i5, 4GB of RAM, 15.4-inch glossy screen, Intel HD graphics, and a GeForce GT 330m GPU. Every time I see one of these, I wonder if they try to put it back together.
I know one publication that tore down an iPhone when it first launched and then tried to put it back together to no success. It's interesting to see what's inside the newly update MacBook.
Toshiba has added several new laptops to its Satellite range. The new machines include the A660 with new Intel Core processors, DNLA tech, and more new features for the multimedia fan. Other new machines include the L670, L650, and C650.
The notebooks have different screen sizes, but have many of the same features. They are all designed with style according to Toshiba and have DLNA capability. The machines are designed for mainstream affordable computing with a variety of Intel processors.
A new Portege M780 tablet Pc has also been unveiled with a 12.1-inch touchscreen. The screen can take input form a finger or a stylus. Battery life is promised to be 5.5 hours and the machine uses Core i3 processors.
NVIDIA has been reported to give Apple some special lovin' with a designated IGP for the company's new MacBook Pro 13-inch dubbed the 320M.
AppleInsider was informed by NVIDIA themselves that the 320M IGP is especially for Apple in replacement of the much less capable 9400M, giving up to 80% performance boosts in some older game titles whilst being more efficient on the power front, too.
Looking closer at the specs of the chip, it's said to be based on the GT216 core with 48 Shader cores on tap. A spec sheet shows it uses 256MB memory, but it is not given dedicated memory and is shared with the main system memory.
Not sure how many people could justify the significantly higher price tag for this type of product, but Samsung has just introduced a touchscreen capable netbook that is otherwise identical to its ruggedized NB30 model, simply called NB30 Touch.
The screen is still 10.1-inch and still runs the typical 1024x600 resolution, but Samsung seem to think there's a market for touchscreen support on it.
Despite all the other specs being identical to the NB30 (Atom N450 processor, 1GB RAM, 160 or 320GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter), there's a big hit to the pocket for the Touch model at around $545, versus $380 for the non-touchscreen version.
During a earnings conference call reporting big profits for Q1 of this year, Intel's CEO Paul Otellini made mention that during Q2 of this year it plans to bring dual-core Atom chips out for netbooks.
Whilst we've seen a dual-core Atom available for nettops for a while now in the original D330 followed by the more power-friendly D510, netbooks have been left out of the dual-core action, but we should be seeing dual-core Atom powered netbooks starting to surface over the next few months which will be much welcomed, indeed.
Apple MacBook fans have long been clamoring for an update to their beloved line of MacBook notebooks. Today that update has finally happened.
The MacBook line has been refreshed with new Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The 13-inch machine will stick with the lowly Core 2 Duo that it has been strapped with for a while now. The new parts come in the 15.4-inch and 17-inch models.
Those two machines get new Core i5 and i7 processor options and the highest end versions will have a new video card option with the GeForce GT 330M featuring Optimus technology. The 13-inch machine apparently gets faster Core 2 CPUs with new 2.4GHz and 2.66GHz offerings. All versions now get 4GB of RAM and 320 or 500GB HDDs, and a 512GB SSD is optional. The 13-inch machines start at $1,199, the 15-inch starts at $1,799, and the 17-inch starts at $2,299. A new anti-glare screen option has also been added.

The number of rumors that circulate at any given time about what Apple is doing or isn't doing are staggering. No other company is as closely followed by fans than Apple. A new rumor has surfaced for Apple today.
This rumor originated Down Under from Macworld Australia. The publication claims that a source has told it updated MacBook Pro models will land next Tuesday.
At the same time, 15-inch MacBook models have been marked as out of stock on the Best Buy website here in the U.S. lending more weight to the rumor. If you plan to buy a new MacBook soon, wait until next week.

Skins that you can put over laptops and other gadgets are nothing new. Typically they are made from some sort of vinyl or other material a like a sticker. A company called Karvt has a new line of skins that is made from wood for your MacBook.
The line can be had in several designs and is made for real wood. The skin sticks to the lid of your MacBook and comes in plain wood or artists styles with characters on them
The Karvt skins are up for pre-order now with a 10% discount. They sell for $35 and can be had for just about any MacBook in the line in bamboo, cherry, or pine wood. If they make these for the iPad, I am totally getting one.
German based mob Wortmann has just unveiled its latest Terra Mobile 1430 laptop which is designed for primary use in outdoor enviroments.
Wortmann has given this model a ruggedized magnesium alloy casing to protect the unit in more challenging conditions outdoors (and from heavy hands). It would make sense for a tradesman to carry around a notebook like this. Further to the protecting outer casing, the keyboard is also spill-resistant, as is the touch pad.
Running over the rest of the specs and features, it uses a 14-inch non-glare LCD with a native resolution of 1280x800 and nestled inside is a Core 2 Duo T6750 (2.1GHz) processor, 3GB RAM, GMA X4500 IGP, 320GB HDD, DVD Writer, 1.3MP webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, fingerprint reader and the option of 3G and GPS support.
The laptop weighs in at 2.5Kg and comes pre-loaded with Windows 7 Professional (with a WinXP downgrade also being available) and can be purchased at a starting price of 1,339 Euros.
Lenovo has made a big announcement today, introducing its new NVIDIA Ion 2 equipped all-in-one C200 desktop and IdeaPad S10-3s netbook.
Running quickly over the C200, this slick looking unit sports an 18.5-inch 1366x768 display and is powered by Intel's Atom D510 dual-core CPU together with NVIDIA's GeForce G210 GPU that uses NV Optimus technology to turn itself on when demand calls upon it (light gaming or 1080p HD content etc.).
Given its starting price tag of just $399, there are of course a few trade-offs. There's only a DVD drive integrated rather than a Blu-ray one and as mentioned, the display is not multi-touch capable.
Moving focus to the new member of Lenovo's IdeaPad netbook range, the S10-3s, this is the thinnest in the PineTrail powered series thus far measuring just .6-inches thick and weighing in at 2.4 pounds.
Internally things remain much the same, however, with the use of Intel's Atom N450 or N470 processor, a gig of RAM and choice of 160/250/320GB hard disk.
All in all, doesn't look too shabby for the $379 starting price and that tidy chiclet keyboard sure looks nice, too.
Lenovo has said the C200 is available through Lenovo.com and at select retailers as of now and the IdeaPad S10-3s will be available from mid-April onward.
For further information, you can read Lenovo's full announcement here.

Acer is a big name in netbooks and makes some of the more popular rigs out there. Acer has only recently unveiled some new notebooks in its TimelineX series. At the unveiling of the Timeline machines, Acer hinted at a new netbook that was in the works called the D260.
The D260 is the follow up to the D250 that was unveiled last year sporting Android and Windows. The D260 would also be a dual boot netbook with Android and Windows. Other than the machine is in the works we don't have any details.
We can probably count on the same basic machine with a newer Atom processor. Acer folks on hand also stated that a netbook with Chrome was "likely" in Q3 or closer to the holidays.
