SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

Well another week has come and gone as time steadily marches on and like every other week here on SlashGear, it has been a busy one. Poor old Toshiba took the old adage "if you can’t beat them, join them" seriously on Monday and announced that it would be launching its own Blu-ray player by the end of 2009. That had to be hard to swallow for the execs who bet it all on HD DVD only to be defeated by Blu-ray. Also on Monday the slick HP Mini 5101 netbooks tipped up starting from $399. I'm not convinced we need another netbook on the market right now personally.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 28 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 28 2009

This has been a busy week here at SlashGear and lots of new items have appeared this week to stoke our geek lust. If you were on vacation or just didn’t get around to reading much this week here is our week in review. We heard rumors this week that Apple had purchased a huge order of cameras for its new iPod models. The rumor was supported by shots of new cases for the 5G iPod nano that surfaced with a cut out for a camera lens. Intel is also rumored to have penalized Lenovo and Samsung over cramming the popular Intel Atom processor inside a netbook with screens over the size limit that the parts are supposed to be used in. I guess Intel is still afraid of net books cannibalizing notebook sales.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 10 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 10 2009

As busy weeks go, this one has certainly been something to write home about (or at least a Week in Review about), with CeBIT, PMA and an Apple mega-announcement all taking place. ASUS arguably stole the former show in Germany, with the Eee PC 1008HA "Shell" once again proving that netbooks needn't be the ugly cousins to expensive ultraportable notebooks. For our full CeBIT 2009 coverage, hit the tag.

Sony VAIO P: SlashGear Review

Sony VAIO P: SlashGear Review

One of the major announcements for CES 2009, the Sony VAIO P has been hailed by some as the ultimate netbook, and by others as a folly of "what Sony can do" rather than "what Sony should do".  SlashGear has been using the VAIO P for near enough the past two weeks; we shared our first-impressions back during the show, now it's time for the full review.

Psion Netbook trademark case continues: targets those “profiting” from misuse

Psion Netbook trademark case continues: targets those “profiting” from misuse

Further details of the Psion netbook trademark case have emerged, thanks to a number of statements from the legal team, Origin, supporting the UK company.  The situation came to light last week, with several UK sites reportedly receiving cease & desist letters regarding their use of the term "netbook", a term which Psion trademarked back in the 90's for use on a range of sub-notebook devices.  While the devices themselves are no longer in production, Psion does still hold the trademark and produce accessories for the line; according to their legal representation, they're not in fact targeting fan-sites and bloggers using the term "netbook" but those making "a direct, financial profit" from its use.

HP Mini 1000 Review

HP Mini 1000 Review

With the recent boom in the popularity of Netbooks, providing customers with the most cost effective way to get on the Internet without adding all of the extra software is what a lot of consumers are looking for. Most of us have a desktop PC that we do most of our work and browsing on, the cost of purchasing a laptop to surf the web while on the go can be a bit to much in these trying times. Hp took this into consideration when creating the successor the Mini-Note 2133, the HP Mini 1000. HP has taken the slick design and brilliant construction of the Mini-Note 2133 and made it surprisingly affordable.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

We kicked off the week with some high-profile reviews here at SlashGear, putting the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops through their paces.  If you're considering one of these slick new machines - or are wondering what style features other manufacturers will be copying over the next six months - make sure to check them out!  We also played with a more budget computing option in the shape of the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA.

Meanwhile cellphones have been on the test bench, with Sprint's pair of new Samsungs - the messaging Rant and the musical HighNote - squaring up against Velocity Mobile's 103 smartphone.  We had to leave our desks to try out Blackline's GPS Snitch, however, but were back in before curfew to play with some toys: WowWee's Bladestar remote control helicopter, for one, and a rather more unusual review of the WowWee Femisapien

Acer Aspire One netbook SlashGear Review

Acer Aspire One netbook SlashGear Review

While there's no shortage of variety in the netbook market, one of the most commonly recommended - and certainly most commonly searched for here on SlashGear - is the Acer Aspire One.  With a slick casing, brand name recognition and relatively large degree of flexibility in specifications, even with new rivals from Dell and others, Acer is holding its own.  We've had the Aspire One in for the past fortnight to put it through its paces; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
