Gigabyte Technology and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS), both of which were early adopters of Intel's Next Unit of Computing (NUC) platform, have seen better-than-expected sales from related products recently and are enjoying good profit contribution from the product lines thanks to their high gross margins compared to standard desktop products.

At CES this past January....

Posted by: STAFF
The perfect laptop; it is every manufacturer’s goal. Obviously no one has gotten there yet (or we would have all stopped writing reviews of them). At CES this past January, we got our first glimpse of a new flagship Ultrabook from Dell: the XPS 13. It got immediate attention for some of the physical characteristics it included, like an ultra-thin bezel and a 13-in screen in the body of a typical 11-in laptop, all while being built in a sleek thin and light design. It’s not a gaming machine, despite what you might remember from the XPS line, but the Intel Core-series Broadwell-U processor keeps performance speedy in standard computing tasks.
