Maybe it's a bit harsh to call this thing a MacBook rip, they're just taking a few cues from the uber-successful Apple design after all, but with Haseenote's design, production and distribution all set firmly in Korea, what are they going to do about it? Questionably relevant design comparisons a...

While it seems most of the design pizazz at Samsung has been poured into their phones lately, they still know their way around a laptop, and this Sens R40 looks like a decent contender for your Core Duo won. Specs are fairly average, with an 80GB HDD, 512MB of RAM, ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics...

Seems like only yesterday we were firing off Core Duo announcement after Core Duo announcement (with the occasional Core Solo thrown in for good measure), and now the Merom (aka Core 2) family has finally landed. We can expect ten new Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Extreme chips from Intel today; we'll leav...

We know that it's a bit of a tease to keep featuring products that will never be available in the US, but we figure that if you're not down with foreign devices, you probably would have stopped visiting this site long ago (or maybe you just skip over these types of posts). Anyway, the latest look-...

Serial rebadger, and self-professed home of the "world's fastest laptop," MALIBAL has added two new lines to their collection, the Bodhi and the Lotus. Nothing groundbreaking, but they are nicely specced, with Core Duo processors and integrated 1.3 megapixel webcams. The Bodhi sports a 14-inch 1280...

Lenovo has just announced a new addition to its Z61 series of ThinkPad notebooks -- which currently consists of the Z61t and Z61m -- in the form of a "mobile workstation" called the Z61p. Like the other models in this lineup, the 15.4-inch Z61p offers consumers several Intel Core processor options (...

UK rebadger PC manufacturer Rock has a blazing new 17-inch laptop in store for British gamers, the Core Duo-powered Xtreme CTX T2700. As its name suggests, this model sports a T2700 CPU running at 2.33GHz, along with 1GB of 667MHz DDR2 RAM, a zippy 7,200RPM 100GB hard drive, 8x dual-layer DVD burn...

China's Lenovo is giving Japan some love with the new mid-range ThinkPad G50. It's a bit on the chunky side, and weighs in at a hefty 7.3 pounds, but we suppose that's to make room for the rather odd inclusion of a built-in floppy drive. The rest of the specs are a bit more standard, like the 15-in...

The reign of Core Duo has dominated 2006, but now is the time for a line of desktop processors to take the stand for justice. Or something like that. Announced in June, Intel's Core 2 Duo is officially "out" today -- though you can't buy 'em just yet -- and bit-tech.net has given the Conroe and All...

Apparently Fujitsu understands that not all business travelers have burgeoning corporate expense accounts ready and willing to absorb the cost of the latest $3,000 ultra-portable business machine. Their new C1410 notebook offers up a Core Duo processor, a 15.4-inch XGA display, up to 2GB of DDR2 ...

The CRT iMacs will always hold a special place in my heart since my first Mac was a 'Blueberry' iMac (yes, I know the picture accompanying this post isn't a Blueberry iMac, it is an Indigo iMac) which is still being used today by my decidedly non-technical mother. However, does a five year old 400mz...

We've been seeing the multi-core trend oncoming for a while now, but it seems Intel isn't just kidding around with the idea. The word on the street is that they have plans for a 32 core chip line named "Keifer" in the next few years to bust on those server tasks, which will no doubt be as ...

Japanese consumers looking for yet another Mac mini-style PC will soon be able to pick up the LF800 from miniPC, which won't run as silently as the ED612E we recently saw from this same company, but delivers a much more impressive set of specs. Instead of that pokey 1.2GHz VIA Eden processor power...

CRTs are so early 90's, don't you know? After threatening the death of cathode ray for years, Apple has finally managed the chutzpah to kill off their eMac, and have released a $900 Intel iMac to fill the educational void. The specs aren't bad for a $900 Mac, including a 17-inch LCD, 80GB SATA HDD, ...

Toshiba has gone a bit "lappy happy" this week, announcing yet another 15.4-inch machine to join the two new notebooks and nine new configurations of current models that we spotted earlier. This time around, the company is targeting corporate IT buyers looking for durability on the cheap, playing up...

Until now if you wanted to go Yonah and get your Core Duo on, your options were capped at 2.16GHz -- just ask any MacBook (Pro) owner. Well, the wait for something a shred faster is no more, as Intel's now officially pimping, however quietly, their Core Duo T2700, the 2.33GHz version of their dual c...

Toshiba's got more notebooks in store for us today than just the R25 convertible and U205 ultra-portable we spotted earlier; nine more in fact, as the 14.1-inch M105, 15.4-inch A105, and 17-inch P105 Satellites have all been upgraded with three new configurations each. Focused on multimedia and gami...

They had to go Core Duo sometime, so why not now? Looks like Alienware's updated their laptop lineup with three new machines that run right up the spectrum of portable product offerings. The new Sentia m3450, replacement to the m3400, is your basic 14.1-inch widescreen Centrino Duo 5.5-pounder, int...
