Review: Sony VAIO VPCCA2Z0E

If the powerful Z-series is the big brother of the Sony VAIO family, then the updated Sony VAIO C-series is definitely the attractive cousin.

We originally reviewed the VAIO C Series at the start of this month, but that iteration was packing a Core i5 processor and dedicated graphics. Now we have our hands on the more affordable VAIO-VPC-CA2Z0E Core i3 version.

Available in a choice of five different colours, this mid-level lifestyle laptop has a number of features that make it worth a look if you’re tired of the same old black or silver design of other machines.

Our review unit was a bright and attractive red, but the C-Series also comes in lime green, orange, pink, navy blue, white or black. Sony has given the laptop a material finish with a transparent effect – complimented by backlighting around the body of the laptop, such as the VAIO logo on the lid and around the touchpad.

Needless to say, whichever colour you choose, a range of similarly coloured peripherals is available, allowing you to accessorise your new rig.

Sony hasn’t stopped at the chassis when it comes to the light show. The isolation-style keyboard is backlit with a sensor called Auto Luminance Control which measures the ambient light surrounding you and adjusts the backlight accordingly. On a practical level, this is excellent for times when you’re working late into the night, but it also adds nicely to the overall design.

We ran several high-definition (HD) videos to test out the screen and were impressed with the bright, glossy screen that runs with a native pixel resolution of 1366 x 768. Understandably, it won’t match a dedicated games machine like the Asus’ Lamborghini VX7, but this is easily good enough for enjoying your pictures and videos.

Just beware the Super-TFT coating does give irritating reflections when you’re watching in a brightly lit environment.

Integrated graphics

Should you wish to play games on the C-Series, you will be limited to some of the older titles as the laptop only has an integrated graphics card. But, being that the CPU is a second-generation Intel chip – the Core i3 2310M – performance isn’t really a problem.We found web pages and HD videos on YouTube loaded very quickly.

The 4GB of RAM helps a lot and is the benchmark amount for a laptop at this level. A healthy 320GB hard drive means you can store plenty of HD video content here and still have space for office programs.

What particularly impressed us, along with the great design, was the strength of the C-Series’ battery life. Sony has put the Auto Luminance Display from the keyboard into the screen as well, adjusting brightness depending on your surroundings to maximise performance. We’re always happy to see over 200 minutes on a battery life and the 251 we got from the Sony is a very respectable score.

Sony wants you to take this laptop out and about with you, and it has provided the battery life to make that possible.

Sony detail

The only real drawbacks we could find with this machine are a tendency for the keyboard to flex during typing and a pretty flimsy DVD drive. We would also have liked one of the four USB ports to have been upgraded to USB 3.0, but you can’t have everything sadly.

Sony has a great line-up when it comes to laptops. While we expect the business users to go for the ultraportable Z-Series and those on a budget to opt for the E-Series, we think anyone who wants a bit more flair will be happy with the funky C-Series as their next laptop.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E520

Share Button

Lenovo’s ThinkPad range is traditionally aimed at business users, but has recently taken a more consumer-friendly turn, with less imposing builds and price tags. The ThinkPad Edge E520 is one of the more powerful laptops in the range and can keep you entertained on the move as well as at home.

The excellent performance is down to the latest Intel Sandy Bridge technology. This means you can do almost anything on this laptop, with incredibly fast response rates. Even complex editing software opens in seconds and happily runs alongside web browsers, media players and other applications. You won’t need to replace this laptop for a long time.

This laptop also scored high in our graphical tests, beaten only narrowly by the Acer Aspire 5750G. We tested out some recent games and found they ran smoothly, although we occasionally had to turn down detail levels.

You can also check out and play around with your photos or home movies. Of course, if you’d rather relax with a film, the Lenovo won’t let you down. High-definition (HD) films play perfectly and look good on the 15.6-inch widescreen display.

However, while many other laptops use Super-TFT screens, which use a glossy surface layer to produce richer colours, the Lenovo has a matt TFT display. Images aren’t quite as vibrant as a result but, on the flipside, the screen isn’t reflective, so you can use the laptop outside.

If you do want a portable to keep you entertained out of the home, this laptop has a lot going for it. Firstly, while the Toshiba Satellite L730-10G is a fair bit lighter, the Lenovo’s solid frame weighs just 2.5kg. We comfortably carried it around all day in a backpack.

Even better, we were able to watch an entire three-hour movie before the battery died, and lighter use will prolong the battery life by almost two hours.

An isolation-style keyboard is in place. It’s one of our favourites with firmly set keys that are very comfortable to type on. A separate numeric keypad is included, along with various shortcuts – you can lock the laptop, search your files or bring up the calculator with a press of a button.

Our only complaint is that the Left Ctrl and the Function keys have been swapped around. This won’t bother most people, but anyone who uses Windows shortcuts will be constantly frustrated when they hit the Function key by mistake.

Love or hate?

Lenovo thinkpad edge e520 review

The touchpad covers a wide area and you get the trademark nipple in the centre of the keyboard, which can also be used to move the on-screen cursor. We can’t stand the thing, but we’re sure that some people out there might prefer it.

Features are comprehensive, from the 500GB of storage to the eSATA port which can be used to transfer data at high speeds with external hard drives. There’s also an ExpressCard slot for expanding the laptop’s potential, but most people will never use it.

The ThinkPad Edge E520 is a mobile machine that’s as good for work as it is for entertainment. If you need something to keep you busy on the move, this is one of the best laptops here.

Review: Toshiba Tecra R840-11E

Share Button

Toshiba’s Tecra range strikes a fine balance between consumer and business laptops. The Tecra R840-11E offers tons of business features and great performance in a light and slim body, but at a price that isn’t out of grasp for the average consumer.

The first of the business features is a built-in fingerprint scanner wedged between the mouse buttons. You can use this to log on to your laptop, which saves the hassle of remembering complex passwords.

An ExpressCard slot allows you to add peripherals, such as graphics cards, TV Tuner cards and extra storage, while an eSATA port can be used to back up your files to an external hard drive.

DisplayPort and VGA ports mean you can hook up an external monitor or projector. You can even connect wirelessly with compatible televisions.

Your data will be protected from theft by the aforementioned fingerprint scanner, but it’s also protected against accidental damage by the hard drive. If the drive detects an unexpected motion (for example, the laptop plummeting off a desk), it will reset itself. This lowers the risk of failure on impact.

While 320GB of storage space isn’t a lot, it should still suit most users who simply want to carry their important files around, as well as a modest collection of songs and photos.

More impressive is the fact that Toshiba has squeezed in a DVD drive. Not a bad effort, considering the slender body measures just 31mm at its thickest point and weighs a modest 2.1kg. With its compact chassis, it fits with ease into most bags.

You can find more portable business machines out there, such as the Samsung 9000 Series and Sony’s VAIO Z-Series, but they tend to cost more than the Tecra R840’s price tag.

However, while the Tecra may be slim and light, we weren’t exactly excited by the plain black design. The frame and lid have a bevelled plastic texture, which does a great job of hiding fingerprints and scuff marks, but isn’t visually appealing. Thankfully there isn’t much flex, and the lid is particularly solid.

One of Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge Core i5 2520M 2.5GHz processors is the brains behind this laptop. Combined with 4GB of memory, performance is even better than we expected. Not only can you run all of your business software, you can often run them together at the same time, with no kind of slowdown evident.

Basic integrated graphics mean you can’t run the latest games, but then you would rather be working on a spreadsheet, right? We still found some down-time to watch a high-definition (HD) movie, which played perfectly, and you can even edit photos from your collection and movies.

Of course, with its matt TFT finish, the 14-inch screen was not designed for enjoying films. Images are crisp, but the best part of this display is the lack of reflections when used outside or in bright offices. If you’re constantly on the move and need a machine for staying productive, then consider this laptop.

Portability is further improved by the excellent battery life. We watched movies for four hours before the Tecra died, while less power-sapping activities such as browsing the web stretches battery life out to five or six hours.

Sleep-and-charge technology means you can connect your portable devices via USB, such as smartphones and MP3 players, and charge them even when the laptop is hibernating.

Usability is another important consideration and while the keyboard looks and feels rather plasticky, it’s well-sized with covered gaps between the keys. The keys have a shallow travel when you hit them, which we weren’t huge fans of, but it didn’t stop us touch-typing at our usual pace. You also have an ‘eco mode’ shortcut key which lets you fiddle with power settings.

The touchpad is a generous size and perfectly smooth. The mouse buttons are firmly mounted, but are strangely sunken into the palmrest, which makes them awkward to push at times. Toshiba has included a pointing stick alternative to using the touchpad, which is a tiny nubbin mounted in the middle of the keyboard. Pushing it around moves the on-screen cursor, but we personally prefer the touchpad.

Managing to cram impressive performance and a mass of excellent business features into a slim and light body, Toshiba has impressed with the Tecra R840. The design is basic and there are some slight usability issues, but if you need a portable business solution on a limited budget, you could do a lot worse.

Review: Panasonic Toughbook CF-C1

Share Button

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-C1 (£1959) has been lauded as the Toughbook Tablet, but really it’s an underpowered Toughbook with some dubious touchscreen technology that only niche business users will benefit from.

The form of the CF-C1 is a traditional laptop with a swivel touchscreen which folds back to become a tablet, which is over an inch thick on the screen and base.

It’s been given a Sandy Bridge Core i5 2520 2.4GHz processor, which keeps it nimble, but it performed averagely in our lab tests. As this is a business laptop, the need for entertainment performance isn’t applicable and the Core i5 provides more than enough power to run commercial applications.

Aside from the i5 processor, the rest of the specs are disappointing, especially given the price tag. There’s only 2GB of RAM, which is the bare minimum needed to run Windows properly, and you do notice the lack of physical memory.

There’s not much in the way of storage either, with a minimal 250GB hard drive included. This is being upgraded for a MK2 version, which will feature 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive.

Average battery

The CF-C1 is extremely portable, and Panasonic should be applauded for making such a durable hybrid laptop so portable. It weighs just 1.7kg and it’s easily carried around. There’s some flex in the plastic, but this is the secret behind its ability to absorb shocks, and it can handle table-height falls and channel water away from the keyboard in the event of spillage.

There are two batteries in the CR-C1 to give you longer performance, but our Battery Eater test made light work of both, draining them in 128 minutes. This translates to around five hours of general business use, but it’s far from all-day computing.

We’re not fans of Windows 7 with touchscreen technology, and the only good examples have been skinned for a more friendly interface. We found the screen to be extremely inaccurate and we were constantly struggling to hit the tiny buttons, even using the supplied stylus. We can’t think of any reason that you would use the device in its tablet form, unless you were using a bespoke business application where on-screen writing was essential.

The 12.1-inch screen with its 1280 x 800-pixel resolution is highly durable and is designed to survive drops of up to 76cm, but the rugged laptop design makes it dim and lifeless, and with poor viewing angles as well.

If you do regular presentations, you may want to seriously consider your purchase, especially as only a VGA Display Port is supplied for connecting to external displays or projectors.

In short, this is a disappointing device which left us thoroughly underwhelmed. The Toughbook is always going to be a bespoke PC for specific applications and situations, but that doesn’t disguise poor performance, a frustrating touchscreen experience and a lack of features.

Android 2.1 to 150 €, with Vodafone 845 can be

Android seems to be a new arrival with the primavara. The terminal is the Vodafone 845, anonymous enough name for a phone that could have a significant following. It is actually an entry-level Google, Vodafone branded and services including 360 (single operator) with very interesting features:

Steve Jobs, 136esimo place as the world’s richest person

The site has compiled the new Forbes list of richest men in the world. The world number one is the Mexican Carlos Slim Helu, which undermines even the position of Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft.

The “our” Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, came to 136esimo place in the standings. We believe that in 2010, thanks to the success that will most certainly the new Apple products (especially iPad and iPhone 4G), Steve earnings increase enough to enter the top 100 richest people in the world … that if no steps bad anyway …

Android 2 i8000 Omnia, something is moving

After watching HD Omnia Windows Mobile 7, arrive at some information about porting Android Omnia i8000 2. The project began a few months but right now there seems no real hope. There have been small steps forward, but unfortunately for now you can not get anything working. The reason seems to lie in the Android source code released by Samsung that are incomplete. What is missing are some very important parts that would preclude this possibility of porting. Despite this, something is moving, and we show below.

X2, have a new X-Series from Nokia?

According to the latest rumors and information provided by the Indonesian authorities, Nokia may soon introduce the new X2 (RM-618). As already announced, having a low ID number, the X2 should be a low-end device, although details are very few available.

The phone should only support GSM, 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, with the addition of the Bluetooth module.
We hope to receive more information as soon as possible.

Firmware 3.0 is one year old ..

Exactly one year ago, Apple released the first beta of iPhone 3.0 firmware, allowing you to discover new features that would come later with the official update: cut, copy and paste, MMS, tethering, Spotlight search, Voice Memo, purchasing in- app, turn-by-turn directions, stereo Bluetooth, landscape keyboard, and more.

Now, a year later, we arrived at firmware version 3.1.3 and SDK 3.2 beta release. In addition, we have gone from 30 million iPhone and iPod touch on the market to over 75 million (150,000 iPad pre-order), not to mention the ever application in the App Store app that now surpass 160,000.

Returning to wish the iPhone OS 3.0, we look forward to the release of the first beta of firmware 4.0.

Google is also coming on our televisions with Google TV

Google and its world are increasingly invading our everyday lives. Android with its thousands of uses we will soon see in uncommon equipment: fridges, ovens, cordless telephones and who knows what else. Soon Chrome OS will be installed on netbooks and internet tablet but the strata Google does not end there. According to The New York Times, Google has partnered are Sony and Intel to create a platform for television called Google TV.

The agreement will bring the web experience inside of our house without using a computer. The new televisions will have an integrated Intel Atom processor and is not excluded that the hardaware is very similar to that of the classic netbook, which will allow you to run a particular system (perhaps an adapted version of Chrome OS) that allow you to surf the net , stay connected to Google services and some social networks, and probably also handle other features.

A new experience, more and more connected to the Internet and Google increasingly oriented.

In 2010, sales of desktop computers will also increase due to the iMac

In recent years, including purchases that people make, we see more and more increase the number of netbook at the expense of desktop computers, which year after year continue to decline. According to the analyst for Caris & Company Robert CIHR, but 2010 will be levied for the year of the PC.

Leading the recovery we will once again Apple, for its unique and powerful iMac introduced in October last year. The growth of desktop PCs in 2010 is estimated at around 3% (high compared to the decrease of 12% in 2009), to which the iMac will contribute at least 1 / 4.

The excellent performance of the new iMac, 21.5 “and 27”, you have done that by the end of 2009, sales of the latter had reached a very high number.

The iMac has contributed to record sales in the first quarter of fiscal 2010 and the month of November 2009 recorded a growth of 74% over the same month of 2008.

Caris & Company analyst continues praising Apple for having kept entirely intact the average selling price of the iMac, leading many people to the actual upgrade from the old to the new version of iMac.

For 2010 we expect, for what the department that covers everything Mac, a growth of more than 1.6 times the industry average.

Next step: iMac Multitouch ….

Tablet PC for Samsung in 2010?

Samsung has always sought new ways and new forms of mobile communication. Back in 2007 launched the Samsung Q1, a small touch screen computers belonging to the range of UMPCs (ultra) with external USB keyboard that has undergone several upgrades over the years. A very interesting technological solution but has never been as successful as hoped. The year 2010 has become the year of the Korean Tablet and the company seems interested in developing a device belonging to this category of products.

Philip Newton, director of the division of Samsung Australia, has announced that the company is working on a Tablet PC is that:

“Our Tablet very high processing power and seamless connectivity”

Nothing is known about its actual pictures of this tablet (the photo above is not true), but his debut should take place in summer and become a new competitor to the iPad. It will be interesting? Samsung’s hard to say but knowing the screen is definitely among the best on the market.

Carl Zeiss is celebrating 120 years in the production of lenses

Officially born November 17, 1846 in the small German city of Jena, a small idea of the name Carl Zeiss optics, the eponymous company celebrates 120 years in these days the construction of the first lens dedicated to photography.

Was in fact in 1890 when the now-businessman Carl decided to expand the horizons of the company, looking intently at that time seemed to be a world without a doubt the “Wonderland”: photography.

This form of art, which from the beginning of 1800 had begun to take root in the Old World, Carl Zeiss convinced to invest time and money on building new camera lens and today, some 120 years later, we can safely say that there was a perfect fit.

The Zeiss lenses were mounted on machines that accompanied man in his first trip to the moon, in the following years the company was able to build very light lenses (f/0.7, f/0.85 ef/1.0), as Today also happens to have been used to record important art film.

Well, happy birthday to Carl Zeiss!

Samsung Galaxy S is with Google?

The picture is quite clear and leaves no doubts about the apparently written “with Google,” a sign that distinguishes all the Google Mobile Experience. There is no information at the time certain but if it is not a cover of “prototype” and then set to change, the written word could have very positive implications for the future owners of this terminal.

With the writing, Google should provide continuous updates of the system in coming months. Past experience, however, not certain bases. If we think of Magic HTC, Google Experience another terminal, we see how that has received the update Donut 1.6 last year but still has not been updated to version Eclair. Sign so that this “famous” written really does not warrant immediate updates of the system.

We’ll see if there will be news. Meanwhile, we announce another new video and pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S.

WiMax in Italy, Mandarin is already a reality and with the Nauta

These days you are taking the Nauta, the Boat Show 2010 which will end March 28. Among the many new features to navigate, one has caught our attention. Do not talk about boats, but Web browsing through Wi-Max technology offered by Mandarin, a partner at Nauta pemetterà 2010 that all connect to internet with broadband.

We have often spoken of Wi-Max, especially in recent days after the HTC EVO, top range Android’s first handset with this technology. But what exactly is this technology and what it offers?

WiMAX stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is the last frontier in terms of wireless data transmissions and is the standard that guarantees the best performance ever with regard to the broadband market.

Given the lack of ADSL coverage in suburban areas, we hope that this technology may soon take hold to a greater extent.

We followed each other directly WiMax for years and unfortunately we can say that things are slow in our country. More than all the other countries had to wait for the Ministry of Defence to vacate the frequencies. It ‘was made then a notice to pay, and some major companies have been awarded frequencies.

After that nothing. Retelit as listed companies, which owns most of the frequencies for the North ‘s Italy and after over 2 years ago a television program in collaboration with CFN CNBC successful, has not yet presented anything concrete.

One of the most active companies was ariadsl, services advertised shortly and unfortunately not very widespread. We hope something concrete is done and that we can finally have real internet anywhere!
