In an announcement that's got some lovely holiday bells attached to it, VAIO today let loose some words on its expanding line of notebook computers. Where earlier this year the VAIO SA 13.3-inch screen size-having member of the VAIO S series, now there's a 15.5-inch model called the VAIO SE. In addition to a larger screen size and a dedicated 10-key, the entire piece of hardware is less than 1-inch thick, the VAIO SE has AMD Radeon Hybrid Graphics (up to 1GB VRAM) as well as a cool sheet battery that'll "double" your battery life. In addition to this, a software update comes to VAIO F and VAIO L desktops.
Apple has again scooped top spot in the American Customer Satisfaction Index 2011, maintaining a now eight year lead ahead of its computing rivals. The Cupertino firm climbed a single point from its 2010 score, to 87, and finished nine points ahead of its closest rival, HP. The ACSI credits Apple's "winning combination of innovation and product diversification" for its success.
LG has announced that it is slashing the investment plan it has for capital expenditures for 2012 to a three year low. The cut in expenditure is a sign that the demand for flat screen TVs and computers is sagging. We already knew this from the poor sales of notebooks at some of the major makers. LG also announced that it has no plans to build a new LCD factory in 2012.
IFA 2011 will kick off in Berlin very soon and at the show LG will be unveiling a pair of new LCDs including the E91 and the D237IPS LCD screens. The E91 is very thin at 7.2mm thick taking up as little space as possible on the desk. The bezel of the screen is 4.35mm thick giving the screen a slick and almost borderless style. The display also uses hanger type stand to allow for precise adjustment for viewing angles when using the screen.
Years ago I really, really liked the first Deus Ex video game, it was one of the first shooter style games that I really go into. I have been waiting with anticipation for the next installment in the franchise to land. The new game is called Deus Ex Human Revolution and should be cool. From what I have seen of the graphics in the game, if your computer is older you might miss some of the cool effects.
Strong demand for Mac computers in China has seen Apple's sales growth soar in Asia, it's reported, with Mac shipments growing at over 67-percent in June, far outpacing their PC counterparts. In a new investor note, Needham analyst Charlie Wolf, quoted by AllThingsD, claims that the incredible uptick in Chinese sales "represents a perfect storm between an iconic brand and a rapidly growing middle class that’s more brand conscious than consumers in virtually every other region of the globe."
I'm not sure what to think of this Chinese dude that took a fake MacBook Air to one of the only real Apple Stores in the country for support. Either the man is a moron that thinks his cut price FauxBook Air is real or he has the biggest balls of them all. The weird part is the Apple Genius at the store the dude made an appointment with actually helped him.
Generally computer gaming and wireless mice are not things that go together in the same sentence. Over the last year or so some nice wireless gaming mice have started to show up that have no lag to affect your game. One of these mice is the Rude Gameware Fierce 3500 wireless gaming mouse. Rude has announced that the mouse will be shipping soon and that it is up for pre-order now.
Yesterday we reported a rumor that new MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks were coming this week. Apparently, that rumor was false and rather than the Air and Pro notebooks, what will be coming this week is some new updated MacBook machines in white and several new mini computers. This time around, the rumor comes from 9to5Mac's Mr. X source and the source claims the updated MacBook will be part number MC914LL/A-J59.
