Hands on with Sony’s new VAIO range

Hands on with Sony’s new VAIO range

Sony invited us down to the Hilton in midtown Manhattan earlier on today to spend some hands-on time with their new 2008 VAIO lineup.  While the company could never be accused of pushing out exactly unstylish notebooks, the latest Z, FW, SR and BZ machines are particularly successful when it comes to a cohesive and stylish design language.  After the cut you can see hands-on photos and video of all four of the new models, including our personal favourite, the super-slick multimedia ultraportable VAIO Z.

 

What do gamers do when they camp out for an iPhone?

What do gamers do when they camp out for an iPhone?

I, like many others lined up for the iPhone well in advance of the 8am store openings. I showed up to my local AT&T store at around midnight to find only7 other people in line. It started pouring down rain almost as soon as I pulled up, but after a little over an hour, it let up. Those of us there got to talking, and as luck would have it, they were fellow gamers. So what do you do when a bunch of gamers are stuck in one place for 8 hours? You bust out a 360 and a projector, and you game.

SlashGear Review – NZXT Performance Power 800

SlashGear Review – NZXT Performance Power 800

I spent several years working as a PC repair technician, and can't even count the number of issues people had that were attributed to their power supply. Most of the time what had happened was that they'd done some major upgrades to their hardware, and left their old puny PSU to power it all. These days if you're running a high-end gaming rig, you need some major power, which is where this new NZXT Performance Power 800 comes in.

SlashGear Review – VisionTek Radeon HD 4850

ATI's latest cards are out, and they are getting some major attention. These are supposed to be the cards that really put ATI back on the map in the GPU race. Personally I thought that the 38xx series were pretty good, however, I've got the new 4850, so we'll see how it stacks up against the previous generation.

SlashGear Review – Guitar Hero On Tour

SlashGear Review – Guitar Hero On Tour

I've been on the fence about Guitar Hero On Tour ever since it was first announced. I mean, just how much fun would Guitar Hero be without the guitar? Well I've had about a week to play with it, so I figured it was time for me to share my thoughts.

SlashGear Review – VisionTek Radeon HD 3870 X2 Overclocked

I was impressed when I had a chance to check out VisionTek's Radeon HD 3870, as it really performed quite well. Now I've gotten ahold of its big brother, the Radeon HD 3870 X2. This card also comes from VisionTek, and is the Overclocked Edition, which promises to get a little extra power over the stock version.

SlashGear hands-on at Microsoft Surface Blogger Day 2: More Video!

If you read the first part of our Microsoft Surface Blogger Day report, you'll know that SlashGear has been hanging out with the Seattle company's nifty MultiTouch table.  You've hopefully had a chance to watch the videos of Surface in action - exploring cellphone details, playing multi-user games, exploring media and more - and, if you're anything like the rest of us, are getting more and more curious about how Microsoft plan on integrating what they've learnt from the project into Windows 7.

Multiple videos from the event after the cut!

Vincent has been hanging out with Microsoft at their latest Surface Blogger Event, getting hands-on with the company's MultiTouch table.  All of the user experiences we've heard about over the past few months were out on show, including the Rio iBar gaming, entertainment browser and virtual mini-bar, and AT&T's in-store use of Surface as a phone information and accessory tool.  They also demonstrated some of the table's other talents, including its ability to photograph and display, in real-time, anything placed onto it - whether that be money, a drink or even a blogger's face!

First look at Rock Band Wii

First look at Rock Band Wii

Every now and then I open the door to find the FedEx guy holding some very nondescript brown boxes. These are my favorite days, as it generally means something new to review has arrived. The latest boxes weren't quite so nondescript, as they had the words Rock Band, and Wii.
