AMD Trinity APU prototypes get Computex outing

AMD has already waxed lyrical about the benefits of its 2nd-gen Trinity APUs, but the company brought along some more prototypes to Computex 2012 including a Transformer-aping tablet and dock. The Compal-made reference design is built around an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 touchscreen and runs Windows 8, with AMD claiming its several years of collaboration with Microsoft on the next-gen OS means significant performance advantages over Intel- and ARM-based alternatives.

Toshiba Computex 2012 Hands-on Round-Up

This week there are more than just a couple of titans bringing the heat to the Windows world, Toshiba being one that dares to bring odd form factors to the table here in the summer of 2012.

Where would Toshiba be without a nice, sturdy mainstream range of somewhat business-centric notebooks? The Toshiba R9 Series may not have the fancy widescreen of the U840W, but the Ivy Bridge based 14-inch Tecra R940 and 15.6-inch Tecra R950, and their ultraportable 13.3-inch Portégé R930 sibling, would all go well in your briefcase.
