Intel NUC gets its first Core i7 model

Mini, and even pico, PCs are not uncommon, but few will probably be aware that Intel has its own special line dedicated to that computing size. The Intel NUC, short for Next Unit of Computing, is the chip maker's own take on how mini PCs should be built, putting the whole computer in a single package rather than as separate components like most desktops. That NUC line is now getting a huge upgrade with the addition of a Core i7 configuration in the roster.

Button-sized Curie module is Intel’s latest wearable bet

Button-sized Curie module is Intel’s latest wearable bet

Intel has almost pretty much given up on the smartphone market, except for a few models from ASUS and Lenovo, so it has set its eyes on wearables instead, where things are still somewhat in flux and no clear winner is in sight just yet. In 2013, it announced the Intel Quark, what is to be its bargaining chip (no pun intended) in the wearables race. Now at CES 2015, it is announcing the latest real-world application of that chip: the button-sized Intel Curie module.

Lenovo ThinkPad L450, E550, E450: performance at value price

Lenovo has a ton of laptops here at CES 2015 and a good number of them are geared towards more seasoned, and likely more well-funded, professionals. However, the PC maker definitely hasn't forgotten that class of professionals who don't want to break into a bank just to get their hands on a quality laptop. For these people, Lenovo has outed the eco-friendly ThinkPad L450, the business-minded ThinkPad E550, and its smaller sibling the ThinkPad E450, three notebooks that aim to deliver professional-level performance without the high price tag.

Bluetooth SIG holds clues to next ASUS ZenFone

Bluetooth SIG holds clues to next ASUS ZenFone

ASUS may be content with leaving us with only a 10-second teaser of what sounds like a dual camera smartphone, that doesn't mean we won't be able to see more information elsewhere. In this case, "elsewhere" happens to be the folders of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), which handles certification of Bluetooth-enabled devices. But while the filing does give us more details than what ASUS is willing to share, it unfortunately paints a picture of a ZenFone that might not match ASUS' hype.

AMD reveals Carrizo, it’s first high-performance SoC, coming 2015

AMD reveals Carrizo, it’s first high-performance SoC, coming 2015

The lure of the mobile industry is so great that even giants in the traditional PC business are scrambling to leave a mark. Just like Intel, AMD is also developing its own system-on-chip or application processing unit (APU) that will power tablets, laptops, and all-in-one computers. At its Future of Compute event, the chip maker has revealed the Carrizo, a high performance chip, and its "mainstream", in other words, less performant, counterpart, Carrizo-L. The two chips are said to be ready to ship and be integrated into devices by the first half of 2015.

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Intel’s last ditch effort: merge mobile and PC chip units

Despite what seems to be nothing but losses on the mobile front, Intel isn't ready to call it quits just yet, at least not formally. While some companies (HP and Sony come to mind) are divorcing their businesses in order to remain profitable in at least one area, Intel isn't about to let someone else take its mobile and tablet business elsewhere. Instead, it will be merging that loss-making unit into its division in charge of making chips for PCs, in the hopes that they will finally hit some sweet spot in the end.
