Lenovo V370 promotions begin with Bruce Lee, Angry Birds, and Zombies

Behold the first absolutely wacky advertisement spot for the Lenovo slim notebook V370, complete with no less than Plants vs Zombies characters, Angry Birds, and an epic battle to the death with Bruce Lee! The point this particular spot appears to be trying to get across is that the V370 is both strong and slim, but you wouldn't know it was a commercial for a laptop if you didn't see the first and last 5 seconds of the video. Thus is the way laptops must be promoted in the fact of Ultrabooks, we suppose, now that strength beats down the traditional size and shape of a standard laptop.

Intel Sandy Bridge CPU refresh includes i5 and Celeron cores

Intel Sandy Bridge CPU refresh includes i5 and Celeron cores

There's a brand new set of no less than seven CPUs out on the market announced by Intel today, each of them with a slight modification over the last comparable version of them, with both Core i5 and Celeron units up for sale. Each of these units has been announced extremely silently for one reason or another, most likely because they do not offer major advances over the last wave of comparable cores. Other than the P at the end of the names for two of the three Core i5 units possible meaning a modification to the GPU has been made, not one whole heck of a lot is known about the innards of these products.

Ivy Bridge-based Xeons a possibility from Intel in the spring

Ivy Bridge-based Xeons a possibility from Intel in the spring

The Xeon E5 launch earlier this year from chipmaker Intel could be possibly matched by a plethora of Ivy Bridge-based models soon to be released after, based on a tentative processor roadmap. After releasing 18 E5 chips based on the current Sandy Bridge architecture, Intel may be slated to have 11 Xeons arrive in the spring based on the new 2012 design, claimed Digitimes. Billed as Ivy Bridge-H2, these would include "Xeon E3 chips like the E3-1290v2 in bulk costs of $189 to $884, as well as E5s from $192 to $1,440, one of which would be the E5-2470", according to Electronista.

AMD readying competing “ultrathin” platform to Intel ultrabooks

AMD readying competing “ultrathin” platform to Intel ultrabooks

In an interview today, The head of AMD Australia and New Zealand, Brian Slattery, revealed that AMD's competing platform to Intel's ultrathin ultrabooks could debut as soon as next month, which pegs it very likely at this year's CES. Dubbing them "ultrathins" (in a possible endeavor to avoid any naming conflicts with the other named microprocessor company), Slattery stated that processors for ultrathin, yet fast computing would be ready soon. and "while the company hasn't said specifically what processors it'll be using, some variant of the Fusion APU, which AMD announced last January, seems likely."

Intel Haswell chip boasts 24 hours on one charge

During Intel's Developer Forum today, the chip maker revealed its next-gen Haswell chip architecture set to debut in 2013. It will be the successor to the Ivy Bridge architecture, which has yet to ship for 2012, and is built on the same 22nm process but promises up to a 20-fold reduction of overall power consumption.
