HP 2133 Mini-Note PC coming with a new Windows XP option

HP 2133 Mini-Note PC coming with a new Windows XP option

The 2133 is still being hyped up and I am sure that a lot of future owners of the machine will be happy to know that your two options aren’t the unfamiliar Linux and the likely slow-booting Vista; you’ll now be able to get Windows XP installed. The reason is quite obvious; XP is loads faster on systems with such limited resources.

Sony OLED TV – its .3mm thick, that’s 10 times thinner than the XEL-1

Sony OLED TV – its .3mm thick, that’s 10 times thinner than the XEL-1

If the 11-inch XEL-1 was too thick for you at 3mm for an OLED screen, Sony has a new on up their sleeve that manages to almost be more anorexic than paper.

ViewSonic pushing out two new monitors and a new projector – me wants

Starting with the projector, it has a 2000:1 contrast ration and 2220 lumens, which means it can be used just about anywhere. Add to that the 720p and 1080i support with its native 800x600 resolution and you’ve got yourself a nice projector. For those with more of an eco friendly mind it also has an ECO mode that saves power, lowers noise pollution, and extends the lamp life, the cost will save some paper too at a meager $499.

JavaBot at the Roasting Plant

JavaBot at the Roasting Plant

The JavaBot is, as you guessed, a robot that makes you coffee. The thing is, it’s not your usual fare of inserting pre-ground coffee that sucks and then it brewing and pouring it, this robot does it all short of picking the beans itself.
