Quick Benchmarking session with the Core M 5Y70

Posted on 12 September 2014 by

In an Intel-led Core M benchmarking meeting today I saw a set of controlled benchmarks from a 6W TDP Core M product. The tests were performed in an 685 gram 12.5-inch Llama Mountain reference tablet with a machined aluminum rear casing that is optimal for this design. We also saw a copper-based rear casing that can handle a lot more thermal energy but you won’t see that happening in consumer […]

Dell Venue 8 7000. Hands-on and Realsense Snapshot demos

Posted on 11 September 2014 by

I was asked for my opinion on the price of the Dell Venue 8 7000 just after it was announced and all I could think of was the nice looking Lenovo Tab S8 which is very similar, for about $199. After handling the Dell Venue 8 7000 I now see a product worth much more than that. The amazing OLED 2K screen is punchy and sharp. The 6mm thin design […]

IDF 2014 Keynote Notes (Mobile computing)

Posted on 09 September 2014 by

The Intel IDF 2014 keynote is about to start. Core M, Realsense, Perceptual Computing, 2-in-1 are keywords I’m expecting to hear a lot over the next hour and I’ll be noting significant announcements here on this ‘live notepad’ as I go along. Refresh to update on mobile technology announcements. Above: Core M laptops and 2-in-1’s, probably the same as we saw at IFA.

HP Pavilion X2 is a lightweight 10-inch 2-in-1 PC. Video.

Posted on 06 September 2014 by

Off the top of my head I think this is the lightest 10-inch 2-in-1 PC that I’ve ever seen.  The HP Pavilion X2 is a Baytrail-T quad-core tablet with a 1280×800 screen and a 34Wh battery which is going to give you a reasonable battery life. There’s a full-size USB port, MicroHDMI, MicroSD and charging port and the keyboard isn’t bad either. This UMPC will launch at $330. My tip: […]

Toshiba’s new 11.6-inch Windows Laptop + Hybrid. Videos, photo-set.

Posted on 06 September 2014 by

Toshiba have just launched two low-cost 11.6-inch Windows laptops that hit the same price brackets as their new Chromebook 2 which tells us one thing – no-one really knows how the $200-$300 Windows vs Chromebook market is going to play-out. Do they have overlapping audiences or are they well separated? The Toshiba Satellite CL 10-B is obviously targeted at this market with a specification list that only differs from  Chromebooks […]

An exclusive 2-minutes with the ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi (Core M)

Posted on 05 September 2014 by

Seconds after I made this video at an IFA press event this ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi was taken away. it shouldn’t have been there but my video camera had already been rolling. The ASUS Transformer Book Chi has a really lightweight screen but it’s quite wide. The keyboard is great and the hinge and dock seem high quality. The casing too. I’ll jut leave you to enjoy the video…

Alpentab – The Windows tablet made from wood

Posted on 05 September 2014 by

Hand-made using walnut and oak the Alpentab is quite the unique product. Alpenelectronics, an Austrian company, is taking local wood and crafting cases for an OED Windows 10-inch tablet. The result is expensive, but special. I got some hands-on at an IFA event yesterday, spoke to the creators and found out that they’ll be making a Core i5 edition alongside the Atom Z3000-series that I saw. In addition, Alpentab will be […]
