Psystar Back Up! Mac clone now called Open Computer instead of OpenMac

Psystar Back Up! Mac clone now called Open Computer instead of OpenMac

A simple name change has Psystar back on their feet selling their cheap desktop computers that are configurable with OS X on them. They’ve also added a new computer to their lineup, the OpenPRO which is available with a lot better case, comes standard with an 8000 series GeForce card and a 10k RPM HDD as well as a couple gigs of RAM.

Toshiba Portege R500-12Q – it has a 128GB SSD!

Toshiba Portege R500-12Q – it has a 128GB SSD!

This notebook has a 12.1-inch screen that is LED backlit, a Core 2 Duo ULV U7700 processor, a couple gigs of RAM, a DL-DVD-RW drive, and then the 128GB SSD drive. This might actually be one of the most energy efficient notebooks there is that still maintains a respectable about of storage space.

I mean, sure the ULV processor, LED backlit display, and SSD drive will help keep the battery life up, but they also combine to help keep the price up. There wasn’t one listed on any of the sites, and apparently this particular model can only be found on a few of Toshiba’s international sites right now, but I can guarantee it’s going to cost you a pretty penny.

The real headline was that such a system might sell at a loss, but looking back its been Microsoft’s strategy to sell their systems at a loss just to be the cheapest in hopes that game sales would eventually push them back into the black, and they always have, as far as I know. Problem is that Microsoft is being quoted between $95-$100 per drive, OEM, for the BD-ROM drives; a price they couldn’t really make up without raising the price of the system by a lot, especially considering they are only putting out $18-$20 per drive for the DVD-ROMs.

What is the best Blu-Ray player out there?

What is the best Blu-Ray player out there?

With the versions of Blu-Ray standards changing as often as they are, and with new features being added to various Blu-Ray discs its no surprise that even with the choice of HD-DVD being eliminated its still hard to decide which Blu-Ray player to buy. You might be surprised at the answer to this new question.

Samsung Super-WriteMaster SH-S223 22x DVD burner is ‘industry’s fastest’

Samsung have, for the moment at least, taken the title of "industry's fastest DVD burner" with their Super-WriteMaster SH-S223 drive.  Capable of writing to all DVD formats, the SH-S223 burns at 22x speed to DVD±R media, 12x to DVD-RAM, 16x to DVD+R dual layer, 12x DVD-R dual layer, 8x DVD+RW and 6x DVD-RW.  Over-speed burning means that discs rated for 16x can be safely used at 22x speeds, and 8x media at 12x speeds.
