What Windows 8 Ultrabook should I get?
I currently have a Sony Vaio Duo 11... And I need something that's more of a traditional laptop form-factor, with a real trackpad and larger screen (13-14"). Productivity on what I currently have just isn't working.

I'd like something with a full HD touchscreen display. Long battery life, SSD, and an i5.

Should I wait until something running Haswell is available? Or is a good option available now?

How big of an SSD is necessary to store/run Mac OSX and other Applications?
I was recently reading this article on Lifehacker ( and it got me really interested in upgrading my computer. I'm working with the Late 2008 MacBook Pro, 2.4 GHz, 250 GB, 4 GB RAM. I'm thinking about replacing my optical drive with an SSD. My question, however, is how big of an SSD would be necessary for this task? I plan on keeping all of my files on my HDD, but the SSD would be used for the OS and applications.... Read more →

Upgrading Hard Drive in Version 2.2 MacBook Pro
So I have one of the earlier versions of the MacBook Pro:
2.13 gig intel core duo
160 GB HD
3 GB RAM - I installed 2 more gigs
I want to upgrade my hard drive, namely for more space and more speed. However, I have been researching some of the different drives and I am having trouble deciding what the best avenue is:
SATA - Hitachi, Samsung, Toshiba? I have seen mixed reviews for Seagate and WD for Macs.
SSD - Crucial, Samsung, OWC, Intel? - I have seen good reviews for the first 3.
I like the fact... Read more →

Which Corsair Power Supply do I need?
I'm building a computer for a local business I know but I'm not sure whether i should go for the Corsair CX430 which I actually have - or the CX500.

Here are the specs:
Gigabyte H61M-S2-B3
Intel Core i3 2100
2 x 2GB of 1333Mhz RAM
Western digital Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm - SATA 2
and a LG dvd drive - SATA 2

What do you guys think? Is 430 watts enough or should I go for 500??

Is fragmentation a valid worry for Android tablets running on Intel processors?
This week, Intel announced their new x86 Medfield processors, which will be available early in 2012. These embedded CPUs are designed to compete with ARM processors on their own turf: smaller, reduced power requirements, high performance.
My question is potentially polarizing in some circles: Will offering Android tablets in x86 variants lead to further fragmentation worries?
As it currently stands, apps compiled for ARM processors can't natively run on x86 CPUs due to the difference in... Read more →

Why do you have an AMD or Intel CPU in your custom gaming PC?
Alright, for those who've built a computer -- which processor did you go with? The Intel Core i5 / i7 Sandy Bridge variants are super slick. But they also cost a pretty penny over the AMD equivalents. It looks like one can get an AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition Quad-Core CPU for pretty cheap. If you pair it with a decent graphics cards, are you going to be taking a huge performance hit compared to a Core i5? Is it a worthwhile investment to go the AMD route, or would you just go all in with a...

Does anyone have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge E420s or E220s? Or, does anyone have a laptop with Intel HD 3000 Graphics?
I'm mainly interested in graphics performance in video games on these machines. Right now I have a gaming desktop, and while I'm looking for a good business computer, I want to know whether or not I'll be able to play games at all on the Intel HD 3000 graphics that comes with these computers if I'm ever traveling or something. Right now I have a 2009 MBP 13 inch with a Core 2 Duo processor and Nvidia GeForce 320M graphics. I looked up some benchmarks of the Intel HD 3000 that comes with the new...

Supposedly these can be bought with Linux installed. I bought two for my kids when they were first released; at that time the only option was XP. As usual the Windows install on these machines has become cluttered with cruft and is now unusably slow. I booted them from an Ubuntu Netbook Remix (UNR) flash drive and they are MUCH more responsive; however the touchscreen does not work. So I went hunting for the official build. The press releases suggest that the official Linux release for these was... Read more →
