The LG Z360 Ultrabook is revealed on CES 2013, which is one in every of the few notebooks at CES 2013 that didn’t have barely screen, however that doesn’t mean it’s not Windows 8 friendly. All of the Charms menu choices that usually need you to swipe in from the correct on a show or touchpad area unit right there on the left aspect of the keyboard. we have a tendency to conjointly love the horny white style of this machine, that weighs a mere a pair of.5 pounds and measures .5 inches skinny.Our main  complaints with this Ultrabook is that its touchpad doesn’t depress, therefore users can got to double faucet to urge stuff done. And whereas the keyboard offered lots of travel throughout our time with the Z360, we have a tendency to want the layout extended nearer to the sides.The lid of the Z360 is shiny white, however it didn’t show that a lot of fingerprint smudges. The deck of the notebook could be a matte white plastic. Oddly, the touchpad didn’t depress, which suggests alternative highlights of the Z360 embody a bright full HD IPS panel that offered wide viewing angles, twin microSD card slots and your selection of Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processors.
As LG has no plans to bring the Z360 stateside, you will have to import it.

Windows 8 : Make Your Laptop Life Easier or Confused

Share Button

Microsoft released Windows 8 and delivered a completely new lifestyle of laptop life. But Does it make your laptop life easier or you are baffled a lot by the new ways of operation method?

A Mom said it was very difficult to get used to for her 8-year-old and a 10-year-old, and they never got used to it. The familiar Windows Desktop is still available through one of the tiles, and most programs will open up in that environment. But since the Start button is gone, users will have to flip back and forth between the desktop and the tile screen. Instead of the Start menu and icons familiar Windows 8 displays applications as a colorful array of tiles, which may be updated information from applications. For example, the “Photos” tile shows an image from the collection of the user, and the “People” tile shows pictures social media contacts of the user. (Microsoft is authorized to use the AP content in applications Windows 8 news.)

Windows 8 runs on computers with processing chips made ​​by Intel Corp. or Advanced Micro Devices Inc. There is a basic version designed for consumers and a Pro version for more tech-savvy users and companies. Borrowing Playbook Apple, Microsoft allows for RT applications only from its online store, and applications must meet the Content Guidelines and others. Once Windows 8 is on, most machines will sell this version of Windows.It is possible to buy Windows 7 machines or upgrade to Windows 7, if you have command line and your choice may be limited to games or commercial machines.Microsoft did not say that the deadline for Windows 7 will, but expect to be able to buy Windows 7 as an upgrade for another year or preinstalled on a new machine for two years.After Windows 7 was released in October 2009,For example, retailers were still allowed to sell boxes versions of its predecessor, Vista, until October 2010. PC manufacturers were able to sell Vista machines until October 2011.Microsoft plans to continue to provide technical support for Windows 7 until 14 January 2020.

Lenovo Unfolds Smaller Yoga Tablet-laptop Hybrid

Share Button

Lenovo announced an 11in version of its still-to-ship Yoga tablet-laptop hybrid.

Part of the IdeaPad line-up, Yoga is so named because the hinge on its clamshell casing allows the screen not merely to be lifted up from the keyboard and folded flat against the desk but can be pushed further round to form a tablet.

Lenovo showed off a 13in, 1600 x 900 version of the bendy device in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but the addition of a model with a 11.6in, 1366 x 768 panel will appeal to those who expect to spend more time using the gadget as a tablet than as a notebook – though it still weighs 1.3kg.

The price is no less hefty: $799 (£499) before sales tax in the US. UK pricing remains TBA. The 13-incher will cost $1099 (£687) before tax.

While the 13in Yoga comes with an Intel Core i7 CPU, the 11-incher has an Nvidia Tegra 3.

Also packed into the chassis are 2GB of Ram, 64GB of SSD storage, USB 2.0 ports, Bluetooth 4.0, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and stereo speakers.

Both models will run Windows 8, of course.

Acer Aspire S7 Review

Share Button

Acer Aspire S7(s7-391-73514Gaws), it is said that the S7 has by far the higher quality display panel. Thanks to the inclusion of a Core i7 CPU and a super-fast solid state drive, the performance of Acer Aspire S7 is fast.

What about the design? Acer surpasses its rivals in dimensions ( an ultra-thin 11.9 mm, and only about 14mm thick with the lid closed ). Zenbook (18 mm), Series 9 900X3C (13 mm) and MacBook Air 13 (17 mm) are all thicker. The weight of 1.27 kg is very good and even better than the MacBook Air 13: Zenbook (1.41 kg), Series 9 900X3C (1.186 kg) and MacBook Air 13 (1.35 kg).

Controls everything at your fingertips. The Aspire S7 Series’ crisp, offers easy function with the touch screen. Able to open 180 degrees, this Ultrabook can be laid flat and used from both sides for terrific teamwork.

The performance should not suffer because of the thin case. Acer idea of the two fans (TwinAir) is a good one. The i7 performs at the level expected, but the mobility suffers. On the one hand, the 4680 mAh are sufficient for only 3.29 hours (WLAN test), on the other dims the brightness up to 165 cd/m2 in battery operation (AC – 361 cd/m2)?. The panel is then too dark for outdoor use and the reflection of the glare type is really disturbing. For this reason, we have the display lowered by five points. Once Acer fixes this problem with a BIOS update, we will inform you.Who needs a touchscreen We the constant switching between the tiles of Windows 8 (Metro) and the traditional desktops were tiring. In the latter, we moved the mouse and touchpad, because of the high resolution. The touch screen is ideal for web browsing, as long as we reduced the resolution to 1600×900 pixels. The keys are required then simply easier.

The strong battery life and the Windows 8 system are also the highlights of Acer Aspire S7. Let us have a look at the hardware:

13.3″ 1920×1080 LED backlit multi-touch display

Intel Core i7-3517U (1.9 – 3.0GHz)

Intel HD Graphics 4000

4GB of DDR3 RAM

256GB SSD

SD/MMC card reader

2 USB 3.0, HDMI, audio jack

1.3-megapixel webcam

Chiclet keyboard

Multi-gesture touchpad with integrated buttons

As is known to all, Series 9 laptops with Ivy Bridge is not too far when the new Samsung prematurely disclosed on its website. Well, if you’ve been patiently waiting for a refresh, your day has come: the company held a press conference in New York today where he unveiled two 13 – and 15-inch models with Intel Core third generation in tow. Hardware wise, there is not a lot of changes that you’ve seen on previous models, but Samsung has added support for Bluetooth 4.0 and 0.1 inches shaved off the silhouette.

With the Series 9 Samsung Series 5 notebooks are new Ivy Bridge bowels. The only changes in addition to upgrading the processor are Bluetooth 4.0 support and a USB 3.0. And 3-Series low end does not receive either completely ignored: the company is upgrading the line of dual-core processors Sandy Bridge (previous models ran Pentium units).

But this is not all: in addition to all these refreshes, the company has two new series machines 5. The 5500 Series starts at $ 800 and offers a resolution of 1366 x 768 14-inch, 500 GB of storage space and a third-generation Core i5 processor. The 15.6-inch Series 5 costs $ 100 more and has a Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor with a 750 GB hard drive Both models are also equipped with NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M graphics. Sammy said that they will be the order in mid-June.

First look of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8010) Tablet

Share Button

Note Samsung Galaxy 10.1 has almost no weaknesses, but much performance. Since Samsung has something special to offer to the family of tablets Galaxy Note, we expect the same to be true for the new Galaxy Note 10.1 . The 10.1-inch screen will support a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, and also will support the D-Pen. The internal memory is limited to 16GB which can be adjusted by using a microSD card. The main camera has a 3 – megapixel sensor, while front camera has a 2 – megapixel sensor.

 The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is very simple. The quality of workmanship and haptics are still at a high level, however. A monocoque aluminum-surely even a small improvement, but also increase the weight a little. Characteristics are certainly worthy of a high-end tablet. An HDMI port would certainly be full after the tablet Both however. Adaptation solutions are always a compromise. An interesting feature is the infrared port, through which the tablet can be turned into a universal remote in an instant. The internal components are absolutely the latest standard. Quad-core 1.4 GHzprocessor, compatible 3D GPU and two GB of RAM is great. The internal memory may have been a little larger, on the other, at least as an option. When it comes to Bluetooth and WLAN owners will not have to come to terms with the gaps. 3G is available for a reasonable price further. The display is also good, although it does not stand out quite so much when you look at the tablet whole. Display Type, PLS TFT capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors; Size ,800 x 1280 pixels, 10.1 inches (~149 ppi pixel density).

 It can shine, but is not particularly bright, however. The resolution is average, nothing special too. Image quality and viewing angle stability is good.

Super good, without limitation, is the performance of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. For all possible applications there is more than enough power available, as there was for the various benchmarks during the process under consideration. In the current state, the Galaxy Note is the hammer performance in the tablet segment.First are the storage slot for the Note’s S Pen and the embedded contact, which tells the tablet when the stylus is in use and enables palm rejection.  Cameras are OK for a tablet, the speakers are less.Primary 5 MP, 2592×1944 pixels, autofocus, LED flash. Energy consumption and battery life are also acceptable, but better with some devices. Battery is Standard battery, Li-Ion 7000 mAh.

In a word, Samsung Galaxy 10.1 provides exceptional performance and has very few weaknesses. It is super with high-tech.

The perfect appearance of Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook, here it is.

 

 

Beautiful design and Good quality
Made to become a great “Ultrabook” to become lighter in weight plus more stream-lined with out diminishing overall performance this specific featherweight champ c3300k weighs about the tiny 1,356 gary, which has a trim 6-18mm body, property your 13.3-inch. The most outstanding feature is that it is not only with high performance but is also very lightweight.

Equipped with a strong setting of the processing and memory. The Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook has high performance. They are respectively Intel Core i7-2637M(2×1.7GHz + HTT, Turbo to 2.8GHz, 32nm, 4MB L3, 17W), and 2x2GB integrated DDR3-1333.

A battery signal with five whitened pinprick Leds line up along the right aspect from the mobile computer. Driving your button close to these people may cause the crooks to illuminate and show the rest of the demand. Furthermore on the correct aspect with the system is a Hardware 3.0 port along with a Little DisplayPort. On your still left will be the electrical power feedback, the Universal serial bus 2.0 port together with PowerShare as well as a solitary wireless headset jack. The ability option is actually perfectly set next to the Break free essential together with the keyboard.

Battery life specification

The electric battery inside the XPS 13 features a Forty seven Watt-hour rating. That made it through 3hr and also 27min in your battery power analyze, by which electrical power supervision can be differently abled. It allows Wi-Fi.  monitor brightness is maximised. It takes approximately 3hr to completely charge.

Display

The display is 13.3″ LED Glossy 16:9 768p CMN1338. Your clearness is great thanks to its WLED or Whitened Gentle Giving off Diode back-lighting.Using Gorilla Cup for added defense towards scuffs along with scuff marks a thing I am ecstatic in regards to the WLED present procedures 13.3-inch at a native decision regarding 1366 768. High-definition online video and pictures appear life-like and photo perfect. The only dissatisfaction would be that the XPS 13 makes use of an Intel High definition 3000 Graphics processing unit. That would’ve been recently great to see NVIDIA or even AMD be in on this.

The Reasons Why Laptop battery power become less

Share Button

Many Internet users and friends using a laptop may be found that the laptop battery power the more you use, the less it will be. Some specifically to professional information, suspected quality problems. In fact, this problem is normal.

To explain this problem, you have to talk about the structure of the battery. Before we understand the basic structure of the battery, laptop battery batteries and management chip. The batteries power storage “warehouse” management chip computing power and manage the charging and discharging process. The main elements that play a role in the batteries is lithium, which is an active element in order to ensure safety, only the state of ions in the battery. Inspiron 1525 battery shape similar to an ordinary battery, but often do laptop battery group. We often see the “core”, “six-cell battery refers to the number of batteries in the battery.

Batteries means that the capacity, the number of batteries of high capacity battery is generally about eight. The reason I talked about the batteries group is a group of batteries is the battery power to reduce the “culprit”. Batteries, the batteries in the group are not the same quality and discharge standards. After the discharge, in order to maintain voltage stability, management chip will detect the worst batteries charging protection. Often the past, the battery power will naturally be gradually reduced. This phenomenon, ready to use battery-correction function, this function can balance the batteries burden “work”.

I Should mention here the measurement of the battery, there are four kinds of common, but generally are integrated several ways to use one of the main methods of calculation, the rest of the supporting calculations to achieve the power calculation, and management.

The first one is the open circuit voltage measurements, this method is by measuring the battery voltage in the stationary state values ​​to calculate the remaining battery capacity, but due to the relationship between the voltage and remaining capacity in lithium-ion batteries still non-linear Therefore, the measured value of this method is not accurate, the vast majority of mobile phone batteries have adopted this method of calculation.

The second is called the Coulomb calculation method, which is calculated by measuring the battery charge and discharge current, the current value and time value of the product integral battery charge into the electricity and the release of electricity, Coulomb calculation is a more accurate power calculation;The third is the impedance measurement method, by measuring the resistance within the battery remaining Inspiron 1520 battery capacity value.

The fourth is a comprehensive look-up table method, set a table, voltage, current, temperature and other parameters input, you can query the remaining capacity of the battery.But regardless of which method, in charge management chip follow the “bucket theory”, to state the worst batteries subject to protection. Regular battery calibration to a certain extent to protect the battery, to extend the overall battery life.
