Lenovo H210-H3644U Desktop Computer - Lenovo H210-H3644U Desktop Computer has Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 processor and 4 gigabytes of system memory, in addition to this Lenovo H210-H3644U Desktop Computer 500 gigabytes hard disk and CD DVD writer. You can buy this Lenovo H210-H3644U Desktop Computer from circuitcity for 479 dollars which quite cheap for this computer.
I think you cannot get high performance from recent games from this desktop computer, it may have difficulties while running GTA 4 or Crysis Warhead but for further information about gaming performance of Lenovo H210-H3644U Desktop Computer i advise you to check some online forums and reviews.
HP TouchSmart IQ504 Desktop PC - As you know new generation desktop PCs haven't got ATX towers and HP TouchSmart IQ504 Desktop PC is one of these desktop pcs. Also there is great deal on Circuitcity you can save $149 and buy this desktop computer for $1199.
HP TouchSmart IQ504 Desktop PC has dual-core 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 processor which is 64 bit processor and speeder than 32 bit processors which has only one core. In addition to this its 22 inches LCD screen is touchable and features HD technology. HP TouchSmart IQ504 Desktop PC features 4 GB of DDR2 ram and 320 GB Hard drive which spins at 7200 RPM.
Three new models of desktop PC series have been launched into the market by HP. The three models of the Pavilion Slimline series are s3000, a6000 and m8000. The first one comes with 1GB of RAM, and you can pick either a AMD CPU or an Intel CPU, but for the later you have to pay an extra 50$. If not you can buy it for 500$. The PC can be set with a low graphic card, maybe a TV tuner and a Pocket Media Drive.
You can buy the a6000 at a lower price then the s3000. It’s just 330$ but you would be throwing off some memory because it has only 512 MB of RAM. But the bright side is that it comes with an Intel CPU, a Pocket Media Drive and a graphics card. But the “jewel of the crown” is the m8000. And the price says so to. At 950$ it has a DVD drive and again you can pick between a dual core AMD or Intel processor. All three models have Windows Vista preinstalled.
This digital media powerhouse features AMD Phenom Triple Core processing power, Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium and 3GB of memory to blaze through intensive applications. Plus you'll get crisp and vibrant video with Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE graphics. It can burn DVDs and CDs of music, movies and photos. Then it uses Labelflash to personalize...

Ever seen a laptop with a 17.3 inch screen? Recently, Samsung launched its new 17-inch laptop Samsung R720 is not an ultra-portable laptop but if you are looking forward to get rid of your big ugly desktop computer then this is the ideal product for you. The prominent feature of this laptop is its 17.3 inch widescreen with 16:9 aspect ratio. The Samsung R720 is powered by ATI Mobility Radeon HD4650 graphics card. This is not a powerful graphics card but powerful enough to play Blu-ray discs without any problem. The laptop supports Microsoft DirectX 10.1 with Shader Model 4.1 which also means that you can also play games. The laptop is powered by Intel Centrino 2 processor. The Samsung R720 can be fitted with 512 MB or 1 GB DDR3 RAM. Another problem of watching movies on laptop is sound quality. When you watch movies in laptop, the sound is not clear. To get rid of this problem, the new Samsung R720 has 4-watt stereo speakers with 3DSRS (Sound Retrieval System) and sub-woofer. With headphone, users will get the effect of a virtual 5.1 surround sound system. The Samsung R720 will be equipped with four USB 2.0 ports and one of them will be able to charge external devices and another is “USB/eSATA combo port.” The Samsung R720 will hit stores in Europe in July and it would cost £599. The laptop will be shipped with Windows Vista.

Full review of Dell Vostro A860
An affordable option that will fit into any budget, the Dell Vostro A860 Laptop offers great mobility and connectivity for the individual who needs a little more versatility from a work computer. Recently offered at $399 through Dell as part of a late 2008 push, there's arguably no better computer for your buck.
The Vostro A860 offers three upgrade packages for more user customization. However, no unnecessary trial software is in the mix to clutter the hard drive or the desktop. The amply spaced 15.6-inch widescreen LCD display offers enough room to view multiple tasks and projects, with the ability to stream media or DVDs on the standard drive.
Dell Vostro A860 Tech Specs
The Vostro A860 comes with a lower-end Intel Celeron M processor at 2.16GHz and Vista Home Basic Service Pack 1. The optical drive offers a 24x CD Burner/DVD combo, with the option to upgrade to an 8x DVD+/-RW drive. The basic package offers users 1GB of memory, a 160GB SATA hard drive and the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100. Out of the box, the laptop is wireless capable, and includes the standard one-year basic limited warranty.
Ultimately, the Vostro A860 is perfect for transitioning from a desktop to a capable laptop, catering to those in need of the technological mobility. Aesthetically, the computer offers a low-profile look, without the overly glossy finish found on many black laptops. The full keyboard allows for maximized user efficiency and comfort, and with the four-cell battery, the weight is just over 5 lbs.
The only real drawback, when considering the unbeatable price, is the size and the power-pull of a four-cell Li-Ion battery. Yet, when reviewing the pros and cons, an under $400 price tag far outweighs the drawbacks to this entry-level laptop.
Dell Vostro A860 Technical Specifications
- Processor Celeron M 2.16GHz
- Memory 1GB DDR2
- Harddrive 160GB
- OS Vista Basic
- Weight 5.4lbs
- Screen 15.4 inches
- Screen resolution 1366x768
- Graphic Card Intel GMA X3100
- Battery Life 2.5 hours
Touted as the first "consumer" oriented multitouch convertible tablet, the TouchSmart tx2z comes loaded with multi-touch power as well as a strong set of standard features.The TouchSmart tx2z is a convertible tablet with a touchscreen that can register two points of input. Only the business Dell Latitude XT previously supported multi-touch input. As for regular computing, the tx2z is no slouch. It comes with AMD Dual-Core Processors, an ATI HD3200 GPU and up to a whopping 8GB RAM and 400GB HDD. The 12.1" display is WXGA (1280x800) and the weight is 4.3lbs. It comes with various degrees of Windows Vista as well as Bluetooth, an integrated webcam/fingerprint reader, and other optional goodies. With a starting price of only $1,149 they appear to be selling quickly. Which means if you want one I'd click here and buy it already.
Full review of Acer Aspire One
The Aspire One is an 8.9" netbook with an Intel Atom N270 processor and GMA950 integrated graphics just like every other netbook out there. With identical hardware, you would assume to get roughly the same performance out of it, and you would assume correctly.
There is still a measure of variation between different netbooks and brands, most notably the appearance, but quality aspects are naturally also important, as well as connectivity, hard drive, RAM and battery size.
Regarding the last item in the list, we managed to find the desirable and elusive model with the 6-cell battery, which offered 5 hours and 40 minutes of battery life with wireless on and backlight set to 75%. It wouldn't be unreasonable to assume that the 3-cell, which is more common, would yield about half of that.
Big for a Netbook
Of course, getting the larger battery also means sacrificing some portability. The Aspire One is actually a bit large already (as far as netbooks go), and the 6-cell battery increases the weight to roughly 2.5 pounds. Another minor annoyance with the Acer is the relatively wide and thick bezel that makes it even slightly larger than some 10-inch netbooks.
That annoyingly large LCD bezel is unfortunately not the only letdown as far as the screen is concerned. Its viewing angles are also very poor - colors start shifting as soon as you're not exactly in front of the screen.
You also get varying amounts of RAM and hard drive (or SSD) space depending on which version you get. The Aspire One is available with both flash memory-based Solid State Drives in smaller sizes and regular notebook hard drives. Our review model had 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive - both quite generous for a netbook. In most aspects, you actually get a lot of "bang for the buck" with the Aspire One.
On the whole it's a reasonably well-rounded netbook that - like most netbooks - offer few surprises. Considering what you have to pay for it, it's hard not to recommend this netbook in spite of a few flaws.
Acer Aspire One Technical Specifications
- Processor Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz
- Memory 1GB
- Harddrive 160GB
- OS Windows XP Home
- Weight 2.2 lbs
- Screen 8.9
- Screen resolution 1024 x 600
- Graphic Card Intel Graphics Media Accelerator
- Battery Life 3 hours
Finding the best gaming laptop can be very frustrating at times. In fact, finding the best of any computer related products can be frustrating because the technology field is so fast paced.
One thing is for sure that whatever is top of the line today most assuredly will not be in the top in a couple of months.
As I said, the pace of technology is simply astounding. And it can also get pretty frustrating if you just bought what you thought was the king of gaming notebooks, only to have a new king appear on the market a few weeks later.
This is why it may be better to consider looking for certain qualities in a gaming computer, rather than a specific brand or model.
Models get switched out every so often.
Brands get hyped by the reporters and computer magazines one issue, only to have their reputations bashed in the next.
Instead, what I recommend is to hunt for consistent quality across the board instead of just a flash in the pixilated pan.
No matter what brand or model your considering, the best gaming laptop must first and foremost come with Intel Centrino mobile technology.
First off, these new chipsets make sure that your notebook doesn’t burn through its battery after only a few rounds of Doom III. And secondly, this mobile technology maximizes the graphic output, making images and movement appear smooth and crisp, not choppy and blurred.
Of course, to really appreciate these high-grade visuals, you need a large, potentially wide screen display. In the area of 14 or 15 inches, with wide angles and crystal clear imaging.
The extra display size may make your laptop a bit more unwieldy, but you’re there to play the computer, not lug it around.
Finally, to maximize your web gaming, you should get a laptop with the finest in wireless technology, such as Bluetooth and Wi Fi connectivity. These will add the mobile to your mobile gaming, allowing you to challenge the competition in San Diego, California and San Juan, Costa Rica.
Now when your comparing prices and models, it goes with out saying that you should maximize your hard drive space, games and graphics need alot of space. Also remember to maximize RAM memory, and processor speed as well. For all of these components are literally the backbone of any computer system, let alone the best gaming laptop.
The playstations are the talk of the new generation now. Ever heard about laptop gaming? The best company that is offering laptop gaming, to give you optimal gaming experience is Dell. There are several factors to be considered before purchasing the laptops with the feature of gaming. The main core area is the graphic card, which is the most eminent factor if you are opting for playing games. There should also be option of upgradation because there is always something new in the gaming area coming up, new innovations etc.
The graphic cards like NVIDIA graphic chipsets is the optimal for 3D game because it gives experience as if you are playing for real on the platform. Radeon 9700 is another graphic card, which gives you better performance saving on battery power also.
Apart from graphic cards a laptop should have a better RAM, random access memory, of 512 which is ideal for serious gamers. The more the RAM the better is the experience in gaming. The video RAM or the VRAM which comes with graphics card (NVIDIA, ATI, Radeon etc…) handles graphics and visuals and is used by the video adapters inside the laptop with 32MB, 64MB, and 128MB it is especially used for 3D gaming.
The processor speed is also very important apart from RAM, as they both work in correlation. The processor speed is measured in GHz, the best being Intel Core 2 Duo. A 2.4GHz speed is best for laptop gaming. The hard drive where your data is stored should be SATA (Serial Advanced Technology Architecture) is best for laptops because it uses less power than other hard drives comparatively. The speed of the hard drives should be 7200rpm, which is the highest and best for gaming laptop.
The screen plays a crucial part to give ultimate gaming experience. A 17” screen is best suitable for this purpose. Resolution and display qualities are crucial to handle the graphics for 3D gaming. The resolution, which has to be followed is WUXGA (Widescreen Ultra extended Graphics Array) it is 1920 by 1200 pixels display or 2,304,000 pixels with a 16:10 screen aspect ratio.
One of the preferred sites to get the Dell laptop is couponpundits.com and amazing thing is it offers free coupons, which fetch you discounts on computers, laptops, and accessories. So the best buy with all the above features in Dell can be purchased with the comfort of the home online. The Dell XPS M1730 laptop has all the above features built in.
Apart from the above features of system another factor is the firewall, which should be never forgotten. The firewalls are foremost protector of your laptop when you are gaming online. A firewall keeps outside users from accessing your system, it protects from thefts of passwords. If you have not installed firewall you are prone to be affected with the crooks installing spyware, Trojan horses, and viruses on your laptop. They can gain access to your personal information and can cause you mental trauma. A well-configured firewall will prevent any such unauthorized access to your machine.
So, go on play the games of your choice and have fun all the way with the convenience of taking the game to your favorite corner or place, but play the games with the precaution as stated above.
A dictionary to have with you on the road? Sure, why not, especially if it's a "netbook-style" one! The Sharp RD-PM10 is a pretty handsome gadget, and while some may claim its place isn't amongst laptops... here's the story to make you change your mind. Ready or not, we're rollin'! This little pocket dictionary comes powered by Windows CE 5.0, and since it also has a full QWERTY keyboard, you can almost call it a netbook. After all, it wouldn't be the first mobile computer without any kind of optical drive, but let's get serious and see the rest of it, shall we?
Apart from using Microsoft's Windows CE, this white beauty packs a screen as large as 4.3 inch (WQVGA resolution), as well as 8GB of storage, but I don't think you'll be able to play Quake on it. Why that?
<-300x250 Medium Rectangle - center->
Well, the Sharp RD-PM10 has been designed only for light e-dictionary duties, and despite the fact it also has some basic media playback features, it won't get too far with that. Damn, if they would add some more interesting and capable OS in future versions...
Anyway, if you're asking yourselves about the price, I guess it's enough to say that the Sharp RD-PM10 has a list price of about $290, but there's no word about its availability in the US just yet. Anyway, as long as it also comes with a microSD slot for expansion, and very good codec support, it could be worth the wait, don't you think?

With a new CPU architecture, the Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 also runs at a more energy-efficient and cooler rate. When people brag about this CPUâ€™s ability to stomp the competition into the ground, you might think that itâ€™s all meaningless hyperbole. Put it to the test however, and youâ€™ll be a firm believer.

This looks way better than my desktop, and mobile too!
Toshiba need little effort when it comes to making a sale for laptops today. They are an icon in the laptop industry and surely it needs little introduction and elaboration. Having seen the popularity of Apple’s very stylish but none-too-light MacBook, other manufacturers have got on the 13.3-inch laptop bandwagon; with, it has to be said, varying degrees of success. Toshiba’s foot-hold in this market sector is the Satellite U300 series.
Toshiba’s Satellite U300-134 should certainly stir things up in the 13.3-inch notebook arena as it offers stylish looks, a pretty decent feature set and reasonable battery life.
Dell has been continuing its dark horse ways in the world of laptop technology and while it has been quiet, it has features that surely will not go unnoticed. Dell claims that the XPS M1330 is the world’s thinnest 13.3-inch notebook and, while we wouldn’t dispute that for the front of the chassis (23mm), it’s far off the mark when it comes to the rear of the chassis, which measures some 34mm thick.
Stylish and feature-rich, the XPS M1330 is Dell’s best ultraportable to date. No, make that the best 13.3-inch notebook you can currently buy that doesn’t have an apple as a logo.
Asus has been a known alternative for reasonable laptop ownership today and this has made it a top choice for people needing laptops today. The AS5633 gives a straightforward glimpse into the current world of the Acer laptop. Discounting the fact that it arrives in a traditional style, rather than the new Gemstone chassis, this is very much a mass-market portable, powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 processor
A solid, unexciting laptop that justifies its asking price. You won’t find many frills, but it does its job well as far as providing the needed purpose of laptops in the market today.
As far as Hewlett Packard is concerned, not many people gave it a change to survive the notebook industry and was better off focusing on their top quality printers which is preferred in the market. Apparently, they are not yet giving up and this is proven with their continued contributions towards mobile computing today.
Overall, the HP Pavilion dv9700t is terrific. Any junkies fixated on high-end gaming or intense graphics/editing might find this computer lacking some muscle. For everybody else, it combines power, beauty, speed and solid design at a cost that can’t be beat.
The Vaio AR series employs a 17.8-inch monitor with a towering native resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, which is skilled of mixing out high-definition content at 1080 pixels. You obtain an HDMI video output, a TV tuner, and it all operates off a 2GHz Core Duo CPU and a plucky GeForce Go 7600 GT graphics card. Sony seems to be departing all-out with the AR series, as it seems that some models will feature dual 200GB hard drives. Also, if you are thinking of taking it out in the road, think again -they’ll weigh up in the region of 3.8Kg, and make you £2,000 not as good as when someone attacks you of them.
Samsung will stop the operation of its laptop division if it doesn’t perk up its market share by 2011. The senior manager for it’s overseas sales and marketing division said that additional 11 million units must be sold worldwide by the year 2011. This is to be able to accomplish a 5.7 percent growth in the market share. In order to stay at the top, Samsung says that they need to at least go beyond Sony’s currently 6 percent market share in the laptop industry. Likewise, as any laptop or computer manufacturers, the only way to increase it’s sales is to venture into mini PC market similar to what Asus, HP, and MSI did.
We all know the popularity of gaming today and normally desktop computers are the preferred setup. Laptops were never known to handle gaming since most of them focused a lot of business related matters. But not anymore!
With this laptop, the Alienware Area-51 m17x now been unleashed in the market and providing avid gamers a more mobile way of playing their favorite games to date.

Toshiba has always been among the top choices when it comes to mobile computing choices. It has been tested and is a known brand in the laptop industry and chances are this new model, the Toshiba Satellite A305 will not be far from being another hot commodity for techie freaks today.
