Eurocom’s Alternative to DELL XPS line

This Eurocom model spots a 17-inch monitor, performing at 1920 x 1200 resolution. It comes with a dual core AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800 processor and nVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX graphics card. This helps a lot in serious 3D performance, in terms of gaming and video. It also comes with DVD burner, 802.11a/b/g, DVI out, and 4-in-1 card reader. Only drawbacks for the laptop is the 5,200 RPM hard drive and 1GB of 200MHz DDR RAM, which does not make it faster than a DELL XPS. However, if you are budget concious and wouldn’t mind carrying a 15-lbs laptop, this is certainly for you.

HDMI to come with Xbox 360, maybe?

There’s a recent rumor about the new Xbox 360 to include the HDMI function. So if the 360 were to actually have a HD DVD drive, then the internal HDMI port would most likely serve its purpose. It’s projected that HD DVD hardware prices to fall over the years, so it is possible to have two drives to be shipped in one box. Nothing is sure for now until a couple of years.
