While rumors were a swirlin' in the days leading up to Apple's "It's Showtime" event, one thing we didn't exactly forecast was a refresh in the Mac mini lineup. Nevertheless, Apple bumped its most minuscule Macs by tossing in Intel Core Duo processors, while leaving just about everything else (incl...

LG last wowed us with its ever-so-delicious Chocolate phone (and then that newer Black Sapphire), but for you folks of the PC persuasion who've been feeling a little left out, we've got something to whet your appetite too. We've just been alerted to the new LG C1 tablet PC, spotted in the jungles o...

If you thought the bevy of Merom-based laptops coming at you had finally stalled, well, maybe it has -- but HP Compaq's tc4000 tablet PC has arrived (albeit fashionably late) with spec-bumped innards that include an Intel Core Duo 1.83GHz T5600 processor. Aside from the Merom boost, this convertibl...

Well done, Steve, you've surprised us yet again. While we were sitting around bracing for another day filled with Apple rumors (e.g. "OMG! What's he gonna announce on the 12th? iPhone!!!!), Cupertino has gone and released some actual products today, including upgrades to the entire lineup of iMacs...

Custom laptop designs are a dime a dozen these days, with everything from fast car logos to glorious "Pink Feather" designs being stamped onto the back of LCDs in an attempt to draw the eyes of punters looking for a new lappie. The latest custom job on the market is Fujitsu Siemens' team of soccer t...

Back in our former lives as sales drones for the big box retailers, we used to cram all our computing gear onto the coffee table, because, well, we couldn't afford a proper desk. We sure wish Sony had been around back then with its all-in-one Vaio VGC-LS1 Media Center desktop, which like the latest...

While more than a few portables have gone the Core Duo way, the Asus W7J intrigued us a few months back thanks to its dedicated GeForce 7400 Go graphics, very respectable pricetag, and gigantic stickers on the palmrests. The 13.3-inch lightweight notebook has finally come to fruition, and although...

We recently brought you the Solo M1 UMPC from Daewoo-spinoff Daewoo Lucoms, and now the company is back with another member of the Solo family, but this one is a regular old Core Duo-powered notebook. The 5-pound, 14-inch M410 sports a 1.83GHz T2400 processor, WXGA display, 512MB of DDR2 RAM (maxed...

What a difference an "E" makes. Chinese owners of Dell's Inspiron 640m laptop are apparently furious over the fact that the company misleadingly equipped their new machines with Intel's Core Duo T2300E processor instead of the T2300 chip that had been advertised, and are lining up to sue over the al...

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...
