Intel, ASUS and ACER: Soon to Launch Super Laptops?

Written on August 24, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Albeit Intel, ASUS and ACER can roll out an Ultrabook of their own soon, MacBook Air has already stolen the spotlight from them.

In the coming days, laptops and netbooks will have to make way for a device that is thinner, lighter and packs more features than its chubbier rivals — the Ultrabook or ultra-portable laptop.

Ever since Apple released its iPad last April, many consumers were swayed by its sleek looks and audio-visual charms. Hence, the world’s largest chip maker – Intel – has set up a $300 million Capital Ultrabook Fund to support technology that will boost the introduction of ultra-portable laptops.

Taiwan’s ASUS is likely to be the first to launch Ultrabooks in India with its UX21. The said device will hit the country during the first quarter of 2012 with an estimated price of Rs 50,000. ACER also plans to roll out an Ultrabook soon after.

However, it could be possible that by the time Ultrabook hits the market, much of its thunder would have already been stolen. Although it is not categorized as one, Apple’s MacBook Air is the first Ultrabook that is already in the market.

Apple: A Still Growing PC Maker in Western Europe

Written on August 18, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Gartner stated that Apple is the only PC manufacturer based on Western Europe which continuously grows.

During a continent wide breakdown on Wednesday, Gartner stated that Apple was the only major computer manufacturer – based in Western Europe – that continuously grows. Apple increased its shipment by half a percent, hitting 7% of the market. Meanwhile, other Windows-based PC makers such as HP, Delli, and Acer dropped in the same period of time.

The said pattern was the same from one country to another. Apple gained share in the UK and had a boost in France where its raw shipments increased up to 6.4 points to reach 5.8% — enough to put it in the top five for the first time. Samsung was one of the few others to see an upside in any area, but it was only registered in the top five in France.

ASUS X101 Aims Linux Tablet Alternative

Written on August 05, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

ASUS's Eee PC X101 will serve as a Linux tablet alternative despite bearing netbook hallmarks.

According to ASUS’ blog post, its Eee PC X101 will serve as an alternative to small laptops despite bearing the hallmark of a netbook. First, at 0.69 inches thin and two pounds in weight, it will be thinner and lighter than a traditional netbook. Second, it runs MeeGo Linux instead of Windows 7. While the latter has been the predominant OS for netbooks over the past few years, MeeGo Linux is more suited to ultrasmall designs which typically doesn’t have the horsepower to run the Microsoft OS efficiently.

Third, the ASUS Eee PC X101 does not have Ethernet ports and VGA.

Pegatron’s Plan to Be the Second iPhone 5 Supplier, Still on Track

Written on August 03, 2011 by Lulu

Comments Off

Pegatron declared that they are still on track with their plan to be the second iPhone 5 Supplier.

Pegatron’s plan to be the second company to supply iPhone 5 is still on track. The said firm’s order is now expected to be 10 million, instead of the earlier hinted 15 million. However, it will still release the said device in September. The information slightly contradicts the rumor that Apple’s new smartphone may not appear until October, since Pegatron would be shipping directly to Apple and customers.

As the primary manufacturer of CDMA iPhones, Pegatron is widely known to the manufacturing base. However, it’s just a runner-up to Foxconn that handles GSM iPhones. The revelations from Verizon which stated that iPhone 5 is probably a dual-mode phone may turn Pegatron’s production into a compliment instead of a vital responsibility. This kind of strategy might prevent the chronic shortages and international delays to occur.

Irrespective of the iPhone plans, Pegatron is hoping to increase its responsibility to include the iPad and Macs. iPhone margins are said to be small and leave the company eager to diversify its contracts. Pegatron was ASUS’ original manufacturing wing and still produces notebooks for ASUS and other companies until today. These includes 8 to 10 million planned for Acer for next year.

ASUS Unveils its Super-slim EEE PC X101

Written on June 01, 2011 by Japhet Writ

1 person

ASUS once again revealed another interesting device, this one being an addition to the company’s famed Eee PC line.

ASUS made a big splash at the Computex 2011 this week with its tablet-smartphone combo, PadFone. However, the company also revealed a new family member for its famed EEE PC line — the EEE PC X101.

The 10.1-inch netbook measures 0.7 inch thick, and offers a Meego-based option that costs $200 only. Just for a quick recollection, Meego is a Linux-based OS developed by Intel and Nokia. With its slim form factor, the price is definitely pretty cheap. Aside from its Linux-based OS, other features that are keeping the EEE PC X101’s price down is its 3-cell battery and 8GB of SSD storage. Albeit there can be an option to upgrade, it will also mean more money and added thickness.

The cost of a Windows 7 version is still unknown, while the release date for the X101 is yet to be determined. That said, don’t forget to keep it posted here at All We Like.

Smartphone, Hidden Inside ASUS PadFone Tablet

Written on May 31, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

The Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone plugs into a laptop-like companion, consisting of a keyboard and a screen. This is a very novel idea that gives gadget lovers the convenience.

Hiding a smartphone inside a tablet can make you enjoy the best of both worlds, just like what ASUS did it with its PadFone, Nuzzling its new Android smartphone into a docking bay at the back of the large-screened tablet, it has a small door that closes behind it, secretly storing the phone.

According to its Facebook page, ASUS has been plugging its tagline: “Break the Rules: Pad or Phone,” and the company is doing it by releasing the Motorola Atrix’s versatility to a tablet form. There even is a small hole for the Gamin ASUS-like smartphone’s camera to peep out.

ASUS and Motorola are on the right track, as those who carry around a bag full of gadgets everyday would like to avoid repetition of efforts. The system ASUS has created uses what’s probably a dual-core processor inside the smartphone that can run a tablet. Hence, there’s just one unit that handles both tablet and smartphone processing, and of course, just one cellphone bill to pay.

ASUS Ships the Eee Pad Transformer

Written on March 30, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Uh-oh! The iPad 2 already has a new competitor in ASUS' Eee Pad Transformer.

Autobots and Decepticons aside, ASUS is already trying to compete against Apple’s iPad 2 by shipping its hybrid-tablet netbook — Eee Pad Transformer.

Eee Pad Transformer’s unique design separates the tablet portion to its main body, which houses a keyboard and touchpad. And as if it wasn’t enough, both the keyboard and tablet portion have batteries. ASUS claims that it has a combined battery life of up to 16 hours. However, it is just an estimated shell life “under certain conditions”.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer also features a combination of its Waveshare user interface and Android 3.0 operating system. That said, the manufacturer hopes that the Transformer will be a “trendsetting tablet experience” with the help of its Android 3.0 with Flash Support.

Written on September 14, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Comments Off

ASUS folks also fabricated their own GeForce GTS 450 cards. They call their high-end chip the ENGTS450, which will be otherwise if not more popularly known as GeForce GTS 450 DirectCu TOP edition.

The Top is designed with a custom PCB underneath a monster cooler, DirectCu. One notable thing that ASUS integrated in its treatment of the GTS 450: the card comes factory clocked at a sweltering 925 MHz, which converts to 1850 MHz on the shader processors, and with an effective memory clock of 4000 MHz. As it is not the only GTS 450 edition out there, it is laudable in its running second in the clock race.

Being enlisted in the ENGTS450 DirectCU Series, the graphics card looks sturdy with more superior quality components, extended durability and improved overclockability and stability.

Asus also builds in a two 8-mm thick heatpipes that assuage heat a little better.

The card comes with one SLI connector for a 2-way SLI with this card on a maximum. A 6-pin PEG power connector also comes in handy with the package. For monitor connectivity, three connectors are also available in analog D-SUB (VGA), HDMI and DVI forms.
