Intel having problems getting those Ultrabooks under $1000

At Computex 2011, Intel unveiled a new form factor of notebook it calls the Ultrabook. Essentially, it's an extremely thin and light notebook that's powered by Sandy Bridge-class processors - not unlike the new MacBook Airs from Apple.

While Acer and Asus have signed on to make Ultrabooks, they may not be able to hit that magical under-$1000 mark that Intel wants - despite having the platform already being subsidized by Intel.

Notebook Italia reports that Acer will launch its Ultrabook in Q4 2011, but it will arrive with a price of four digits. Another source told Slashgear that Asus UX31 and UX21 Ultrabooks will be over $1000 as well, unless a sacrifice is made to drop the CPU down to a Core i3. Models with Core i5 and i7, paired with SSDs, will range between $1000 to $2000.

It seems that the MacBook Air line isn't carrying as much of an “Apple tax” this time around.

Report: Apple developing 15-inch super-slim MacBook Pro

Just last week, Apple launched its new line of Sandy Bridge equipped MacBook Airs. However, it seems the MacBook Air is not the only superslim laptop Apple has been working on. Rumor has it that Cupertino's got an uber-skinny 15-inch MacBook Pro in development. Not only that, but the laptop is supposedly near completion.

MacRumors was first to report the news and readily admits that it's not sure if this is an addition to the MacBook Air lineup, or a new design for the MacBook Pro. However, the blog claims that what it does know is that the laptop has entered “late testing stages at Apple.” The Unofficial Apple Weblog has since chimed in with its own version of events, reporting that yes, this will be a MacBook Pro. TUAW also reports that there will be a second model, this one a 17-inch notebook, to go along with the first slim machine and that both will appear as part of a MacBook Pro refresh.

There isn't much in the way of details at the moment. TUAW reckons that the laptops might be available in time for Christmas but, other than that, there's nothing regarding specs available right now. One of the more interesting points is that the Air's skinny form-factor has seen Apple ditch the optical drive. It's not clear if these diet-Pros will also lose their drives.

HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr is Verizon's first 4G LTE-powered notebook

It's been awhile since Verizon launched its 4G LTE network, and since then the carrier has been steadily churning out new 4G devices. First it was the USB modems and personal hotspots; then came the handsets (Thunderbolt 4G and Droid Charge 4G) and now it's time for the notebooks to arrive. After dropping a hint of the laptop at CES 2011 in January, Verizon has finally unveiled its first ever 4G LTE notebook.

Built by HP, the Pavilion dm 1-3010nr Entertainment PC (couldn't they have picked a catchier name?) is designed to stream HD content, play games, video chat, download music, photos, and videos within seconds rather than minutes thanks to Verizon's 4G network. The notebook will be a pretty slim device, measuring less than 1.2″ thick, and is said to features notebook performance in a netbook form factor.

Here are a rundown of the dm1-3010nr's specs: 1.60GHz AMD Dual-Core Processor E-350, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 11.6″ HD HP BrightView LED Display (1366 x 768), 320 GB HDD with HP ProtectSmart hard drive protection, VGA webcam with integrated microphone, multi-format card reader, WiFi, and of course in-built 4G LTE connectivity. The notebook runs on the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.

The HP Pavilion dm1-3010nr will be available starting today for $599.99. Broadband data plans go for $50/month (5GB) or $80/month (10GB). Head over to the Verizon website if you're interested in purchasing one.

PSA: New MacBook Air's SSD performs variously

When you head to Apple's online store to configure your MacBook Air, you'll find options to increase processor speed or SSD capacity — depending on the model you select, of course. There's no mention of flash drive speed, however, though it's now clear that not all SSDs are created equal at Apple — not only when it comes to capacity, but also performance.

Jonathan over at TLD discovered a fairly significant discrepancy when benchmarking both MacBook Air models over the weekend. The 128GB Samsung SSD in his 11-inch Air was able to achieve 246 MB/s write and 264 MB/s read speeds. When he switched to the 13-inch model, however, speeds dropped to 156 MB/s and 208 MB/s, respectively, using that notebook's 128GB Toshiba SSD.

Over at Engadget, they compared speeds on two generations of 13-inch models, and have also confirmed Jonathan's findings. During their tests, the 256GB Samsung drive in our older model achieved 214 MB/s write and 251 MB/s read speeds, while the 128GB Toshiba drive in the new MacBook Air scored 184 MB/s and 203 MB/s during write and read tests, respectively.

This many not be a very noticeable issue for most MacBook Air owners, but still it's an interesting find that their performances varies.

Apple tests Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud for Lion beta 5

Apple has already begun testing both Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud for Lion beta 5, where this fifth pre-release version of the iCloud cloud computing service software will be battered left, right and under to make sure it is ready for a full commercial release with as little (or none) bugs where possible. This might come across as strange to some, since Apple requires developers to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 before they are able to take advantage of iCloud beta 5, but on the other hand Cupertino hasn't provided any information of test builds of Mac OS X 10.7.1 to developers, leaving many scratching their heads.

According to developers, Apple told them that, “You must install OS X Lion 10.7.2 in order to use iCloud for OS X Lion beta 5. This pre-release version of OS X Lion is being provided solely for testing iCloud.”

Developers who have taken the step to install Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud beta 5 claim that the software updates Lion's “Mail, Contacts & Calendars” control panel by throwing in iCloud management interface. The iCloud management interface will enable users to choose the kind of data forms that they want to synchronize to the cloud. We will just exhibit patience and hope that all goes well and is released, eventually.

Apple MacBook batteries hacked to burn or explode

We know that computers can be broken into by hackers for malicious purposes, but who would've thought that laptop batteries could be broken into as well? At the Black Hat security conference next month in Las Vegas, a security researcher named Charlie Miller will be giving a demonstration on how to hack into and control the microprocessor of a MacBook battery.

According to Miller, “These batteries just aren't designed with the idea that people will mess with them. What I'm showing is that it's possible to use them to do something really bad.” Apparently once the controller for the battery has been compromised, it can be manipulated to the point where it is dead or “bricked”, and there even is a possibility for a fire or an explosion to be caused by placing malware on the chip.

Similarly damaging cyber attacks have been proved possible on much larger systems like generators, or other parts of the power grid.

Normally people aren't worried when it comes to cyber criminals - the worse they can do is corrupt your data or use it without permission (which is bad enough). If what Miller says is true, then we might have to worry about our computers exploding on us in the near future (oh great). Hopefully new security measures will be taken to prevent such occurrences from happening.

Lenovo ThinkPad T520i Intel Core i3-2310M

The Intel Core i3 runs like a charm in collaboration with the T520i's Intel HD graphics 3000 and the 500 GB hard drive that whirls around at 7200 rpm. No complaints when it comes to speed with the exception of application startup. It's been my experience to hold off on multiple application launches all at once on ThinkPads. They tend to take twice as long to startup when this occurs.

ThinkPads get a high value mark among laptop users for its resistance to change, but it'd be nice to have seen Lenovo take this ThinkPad model into the chiclet keyboard stage that so many other laptop models are being produced with. Laptop keyboards that are difficult to clean overtime can cause buildup of particles that can seriously damage vital components. It'd be nice to no longer have to worry about that with the traditionally and sometimes notoriously compressed ThinkPad keyboard.

But big gold stars continue to go to Lenovo's technical support service. Year after year, the company gets praised for its devotion to providing customers with intelligent support members who help instead of hinder. When trial testing Lenovo tech support capability for the T520i, I found no exception to the industry expectation.

Lenvo lists the ThinkPad T520i at $750.00 right now, which is an extreme bargain considering the original listing price of nearly double that. I wouldn't say the T520i would be worth $1400.00, but it's certainly worth more than it's current market price.

Considering the ThinkPad is meant to look like a relic while behaving state-of-the-art, the design hang ups are no reason to avoid this laptop. Few laptops have done the job for as long as the ThinkPad, and the T520i is no exception.

MacBook Pros, Hit the Bench: The Air Is Gaining Muscle

Sunday, July 24, 2011

The new MacBook Airs' i5 processor and backlit keyboard make it a speedy, slick machine

If you bought a MacBook Pro last year, it just got outflanked by its slimmer, smaller cousin, the MacBook Air.

According to benchmark tests, the 2011 MacBook Air outperforms every 2010 MacBook Pro.

Laptop magazine reports that the 13-inch Air had a performance boost of 100 percent over last year's Air, scoring 5,860 on the Geekbench test. It boots in 17 seconds, and has a 6.25-hour battery life. The 11-inch Air jumped 149 percent, for a Geekbench score of 5,040, compared to 2,024 for last year's model. It took 19 seconds to boot up, and its battery lasted just over 4.75 hours.

As a direct comparison, the 2010 17-inch MacBook Pro scored 5,423 on its benchmark test — so the new 13-inch Mac Book Air is more powerful than the 17-inch Pro, and the 11-inch Air is on par with it. Kind of mind blowing.

The MacBook Pro line, particularly the 2010 MacBook Pros, have been a big target audience for Apple. Available in 13-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch sizes, they featured the most powerful processors in Apple's line of portables (the 15 and 17-inchers came standard with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5 Chip).

Apple's big performance boost for the MacBook Air illustrates its larger plan. The company in recent years has invested less on products for the professional marketplace to focus on hardware for general consumers, including iPhones, iPads and now, the MacBook Air.

Apple's steady strides away from the professional marketplace are exemplified by the recent release of Final Cut Pro X, a dumbed-down version of the video-editing tool, which angered many professional video editors. Also, Apple in recent years has been slower with releasing upgrades for the Mac Pro.

And here's an obvious tell: Apple hasn't updated its Pro webpage in two years.

Last year's MacBook Airs were lauded for their super-slim .76-inch thickness and less than 3-pound heft. That frame came at a price, though: they housed less impressive Core 2 Duo processors, relegating the Air to niche markets like frequent travelers who were looking for just a decently-performing ultra-portable notebook. Since Apple unveiled their newer, faster MacBook Airs yesterday, it looks like the MacBook Air will be taking the front seat to the Pro.

It looks like size doesn't matter. Well, when it comes to Apple notebooks, at least.

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion runs into installation issues

Even the world's most advanced operating system cannot escape the deadly bug issue it seems, according to a bunch of Mac users who have decided to take the plunge to upgrade their system to Mac OS X 10.7 Lion which was released just yesterday morning. All the error messages are not the same, being of different variety to keep some folks out there scratching their heads quizzically. There is a thread over at the official Apple Support Communities which points to an issue where users are required to choose the disk on where they want OS X Lion installed. If one selects the Macintosh HD as the install destination, some are met by the error message, “This disk cannot be used to start up your computer.”

Apple Support has informed users affected by this issue to fire up Repair Disk Permissions and perform a “clean” repair, but folks who took that advice to heart claimed that the Mac App Store says that Lion has already been “Installed,” which doesn't make sense, really.

Are you one of those who are affected, or is Lion roaring on your Mac right now without throwing a hissy fit?

Updated MacBook Air receives teardown

The brand new MacBook Air has been out only a day, and unsurprisingly the folks over at iFixit have already gotten their hands on one and have given it the teardown treatment we've come to expect. After all, they did it with the previous MacBook Air when it was released, why wouldn't they do it to this one? Judging by what they've uncovered, it seems that both MacBook Air computers are almost identical on the surface and on the inside.

While it is recommended you don't take repairs into your own hands, it's good to know that you'll have a guide for taking your MacBook Air apart if the need arises. But if you don't have the guts to undertake such a task, you can always just look at the pictures iFixit has provided. At least you'll know what's going on inside that machine of yours.

New Mac mini torn apart by iFixit

Everyone knows just what a great quarter it has been for Apple, and a slew of releases such as the new Mac mini has certainly raised a whole lot of attention in the process. Well, trust the good people over at iFixit to actually grab hold of one of these puppies and taking it apart – as though they are an old hand at it. Of course, one of the most noticeable things about it would be the Thunderbolt port to have it hook up to the first Thunderbolt Display in the world (from Apple, who else). Not only that, there is also a second hard drive port, not to mention having enough room to stash away another storage device.

Those who want to add another hard drive from Apple directly will have to pay through their nose – and we are looking at at least a grand, if not more. If you have the know how and guts to take your Mac mini apart yourself and perform a self-installation process, then it shouldn't cost that much – and you will probably beam in pride yourself, knowing that you saved your family a few hundred buckeroos in the process.

MacBook Air Makes Room for Baby Thunderbolt

A teardown of the new 13-inch MacBook Air reveals the logic board, in its tiny, mighty glory. Photo courtesy of iFixit

A quick peek under the hood of Apple's new MacBook Air reveals the company's diligent efforts to squeeze in its brand-new Thunderbolt technology.

Gadget repair site iFixit dissected the new laptop to look at its chip board, which includes an Intel Core i5 processor and an integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics chip. The chip layout opens space for an Intel platform controller hub with Thunderbolt technology.

“Shifting to integrated graphics on the processor freed up a lot of room on the board — enough for Apple to add the sizeable Thunderbolt-capable Platform Controller Hub,” iFixit explained in a press release.

Apple released the upgraded MacBook Air on Wednesday. The newest additions to the notebook are backlit keyboards and Intel's Thunderbolt connectivity. The Thunderbolt port technology allows for speedy data transfer that puts USB to shame.

As for wireless, the new Airs feature a Broadcom BCM20702 Bluetooth board, which supports BLE. Unlike previous generations' Bluetooth, the new Air has 128-bit AES security, 6-millisecond latency, and better power efficiency. With OSX Lion, you might've noticed that the icon on the upper right is no longer the AirPort, but just "Wi-Fi," powered by a Broadcom BCM4322 Intensi-fi Single-Chip 802.

Apple laptops in the past have been notoriously hot (temperature wise - not just in terms of looks), and to prevent unintended combustion, last-gen Airs received hefty dollops of thermal paste. The new Air, it seems, has resolved some of the cooling issues because there is far less paste than in the last generation, though the fan is still conspicuous, according to iFixit.

Previous Airs missed out on the backlit keyboard featured on the corpulent MacBook Pro. Now, from not-so-deep inside, a backlight cable powers the LEDs that illuminate the keys. But the MacBook Pro kids get one thing to brag about: the Air's thin screen can't accommodate FaceTime HD.

The Air's upgrades, thanks to the circuitry inside that's organized like a perfect game of Tetris, comes at a price. This laptop is not meant for tinkering, even in the name of repair. The RAM is soldered in (read: not upgradable or exchangeable) and the LCD panel so snug that it's tedious to replace. Luckily, the solid-state drive (SSD), the quick, more stable, but smaller alternative to spinning-disc hard drives, isn't soldered in, so it's possible to upgrade for more storage.

Should anything catastrophic happen to their Air, owners will have to schlep to the nearest Apple Store — the laptop doesn't come with a USB recovery drive this time around. Be careful with this thing.

Acer launching Tegra 2 powered laptop next week?

Various reports indicate that Acer is planning to release a “notebook” built with Nvidia's dual-core Tegra 2 processor clocked at 1 GHz. The company also intends to release an ultrabook packed with an Intel processor and tablets sporting Google's Android 3.2 “Honeycomb” OS.

The news arrives by way of company chairman and CEO J.T. Wang as he addressed concerns about the company dropping from the second world's largest PC manufacturer to the fourth largest during the second quarter of 2011. He said that to regain its lost market share, the company plans to adopt a new strategy to create “more value instead of pursuing volume growth.”

Wang said that the Tegra 2 notebook - which is more likely a netbook or a tablet-netbook hybrid similar to the Asus Eee Pad Transformer - will actually launch within the month. The Intel-based ultrabook is scheduled to hit the market in December. Currently there's no word on when the Honeycomb tablets will arrive.

In addition to revealing the devices, the Acer chairman stated that the company will return to profitability in Q3 2011 and should perform even better in the fourth, indicating that Acer may actually generate a profitable 2011 despite the disastrous second quarter.

Earlier this year, Acer's CEO Gianfranco Lanci stepped down from his position at the end of the first quarter. The resignation was followed by a $150 million charge against the company earnings to write-off a “high channel inventory and disputed accounts receivable in EMEA” due to “abnormalities in terms of channel inventory stored in freight forwarders' warehouses.”

Wang has reportedly declined a salary for his role as director and even waved off a 2010 bonus to help compensate for the $150 million expense. “With Acer's substantial loss in write-off, Wang deeply feels regretful of the current situation and will dedicate his efforts fully to investigating the reasons behind the loss and to improving internal management,” the company announced in June.

If Acer does indeed plan to release a Tegra 2 “laptop” during July, the company has just one week to do so. That said, we're eager to see what Acer will bring to the table next week.

Griffin offers the universal TechSafe Cable Lock System that uses the laptop's hinge as the attachment point, so it will work equally well with all laptops. You slide the patented hardened steel LockBlade through the hinge – which Griffin says is the strongest part of the laptop, then you attach the TechSafe Cable Lock to the LockBlade and a table leg. If there's not an easy way to attach the cable to a piece of furniture, you can use the optional Anchor Clamp. The TechSafe Cable Lock System is available at the Griffin online store. The Cable Lock is $29.99, and the Anchor Clamp is $19.99.
