- PolyGFX LaptopSkin

Ever wanted to mod your laptop somehow? be different perhaps? PolyGFX have designed a new product for 'skinning' your laptop. Check it out over at Burnout PC.

PolyGFX adhesives are made from a durable vinyl that is designed to last up to seven years. These adhesives are frequently used by sign makers to print graphics for both indoor and outdoor use. These products are easy to apply and require little or no maintenance. Additionally, they are easy to remove and leave absolutely no residue behind. Most of our products are made using this adhesive vinyl and a wide-format printer. Whatever product you chose, you can be assured that the very best artists we could find and the very best materials were used to create it.

- AMD's Athlon64 FX-51 Processor

Here's yet another review on the "Hammer for enthusiasts". GamePC have provided us with some more kickarse results.

AMD's Athlon64 FX-51 is an extremely impressive processor, and when paired with ECC/Registered DDR-400 memory, this baby just screams performance. While there is technically no real difference between this and the performance of the soon-to-be-released Opteron 148 processor, the Athlon64 FX-51 will remain the processor of choice for gamers, due to its unlocked core multiplier, which allows for incredibly simple overclocking. Of course, to make use of this feature, one has to make sure they have a motherboard which supports multiplier alteration such as the Asus SK8N. The Athlon64 FX-51 will also likely be a bit lower cost compared to the Opteron 148.
