Fujitsu is still looking to sell off its unprofitable hard drive business after talks with Western Digital fell through.
Days after leaking the launch of their new netbook on their own website, HP has officially launched the all-new HP Mini 1000. This consumer-focused version of their Mini-Note 2133 netbook includes the Intel Atom processor, multiple storage drive options, and a removable USB storage drive for easy transfer of files between the Mini 1000 and another computer.
As a photographer (and a longtime dual-platform user), I was intrigued by the announcement of Lenovo's new ThinkPad W700. With Lenovo's reputation for building ultra-reliable business notebooks, the decision to dive head-first into a high-end mobile graphics system like the W700 may seem like a strange one. And if Lenovo's targeting any single market with this device, it's unquestionably photographers: with copious storage space, an excellent screen, a built-in digitizer, and an onboard color calibration system, Lenovo is clearly taking a direct shot at the relatively closed and insular pro photo market. To my knowledge, nothing else on the market offers the W700's concentration of photographer-friendly features.
In part six of our ongoing series, we take an in-depth look at the storage drives inside notebook computers. Whether it's traditional hard disk drives or new solid state drives, your data storage drive is arguably the most important part of your computer simply because it holds all of your important files. Without it you simply can't save any data you care about. If you want to know more, this is the article for you.
While at Computex 2008, staff writer Kevin O'Brien managed to spend a little time with the new Asus Eee PC 901. Packed with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, Windows XP, and 12GB of flash-based storage, can the Eee PC 901 take the top spot in the mini-notebook market? Read on to find out.
Almost every modern notebook has a built-in memory card reader, but not everyone uses these card readers for digital photography. Now that SDHC memory cards offer larger capacities at low prices, is this a good option as a second storage drive, or even your primary boot disk? We did some testing to find out just how useful a $30-$100 memory card is for laptop owners.
Solid state disks (SSDs) are a flash-based memory storage device that carries an insane price premium in the current market. They will usually cost $600 to $1,000 as an upgrade, making them outside the price range of many consumers. A new cheaper (slightly slower) option is available thanks to low-cost, high-capacity flash cards. This option is using a cheap compact flash to SATA adapter, and purchasing a moderately fast memory card that would fill your storage needs. How fast can a $100 SSD be? Let's take a look.
Easy to disassemble, easy to upgrade, and easy to create warranty headaches is probably the slogan many advanced users will be thinking soon after they get their hands on an Asus Eee PC. During our initial review we realized that this device had so much more potential than what we had first expected. Not counting the storage limitation, this little machine was as powerful as notebooks four to five times its price! The Xandros Linux environment can be expanded with more traditional programs, and better yet this device fully supports Windows XP out of the box. We also wanted to touch on upgrading the Eee PC, since many owners want to add more RAM.
