ACER Aspire S7 11.6 inch Touch Enabled Ultrabook Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 10:20A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ACER Aspire S7-191-6640 has been one of my better experiences with an ultrabook. Over the past few months I`ve had my hands on the Cyberpower Zeus M2, and the Dell XPS14. Each of those had their own strong points and their own week points. The ACER Aspire s7-191-6640 really didn`t seem to have much in the way any weak points, at least not in my experience. Of course there could always be more performance from the processor, but hey, that`s pretty much true of any system out there..."

Auvio Bluetooth Portable Speaker Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 9:19A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Does your smartphone, tablet, or laptop need some extra oomph in the audio department? If youre like me, I use my smartphone for enjoying streaming music while I am working around the house, at the beach, or on the patio enjoying some drinks with friends. However, with the mantra of mobile devices being smaller/slimmer is better, the built-in speakers leave a lot to be desired. Fortunately, some companies have taken notice and now offer portable speakers for your mobile devices."

REVIEW Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G3 64GB @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Feb 28 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G3 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive is the third generation in the company?s lineup, packing 64GB of capacity onto a form factor that can fit onto your key ring. But what about performance? Around here, we think Performance is King, and we?ve heard people complain these large capacity flash drives are slow as molasses in a northern Canadian winter (that?s cold, trust me). Just how fast is this G3 flash drive? Let?s move on to find out.?"

Fractal Design Node 304 Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Feb 27 2013 | 10:35A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Small form factor systems have become increasingly popular over the past year. The main reason for this is the availability of Mini ITX motherboards that have some of the same features as full-sized ATX motherboards. Having a smaller system means it is easier to take with you to LAN parties, takes up less space on your desk, and is able to fit in your home theater setup. Today we are taking a look at a case that is perfect for building a small form factor system. The Fractal Design Node 304 has that familiar cube design that many SFF systems has, but inside you are able to fit a Mini ITX motherboard, up to six hard drives and a full sized ATX power supply. Read on as we take a look..."
