OCZ Vertex 4 128GB Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vertex 4 uses Intel 25nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash and a dual-ARM controller which utilises the SATA 3 (6GB/s) interface.

     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 12:04P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 is the best Android tablet money can buy, with an incredibly bright and sharp high-resolution display and blazing fast quad-core processor, but there just aren`t enough apps. Aside from the screen, the TF700 looks and feels a lot like the Asus Eee Pad TF201, but inside are slightly more powerful components, from a faster-clocked processor to an improved camera."
