Acer AspireRevo upgrade potential looks good

Acer AspireRevo upgrade potential looks good

Yesterday's review of the Acer AspireRevo nettop might have cast some doubt over its Atom processor while simultaneously praising NVIDIA's Ion GPU chipset, but it didn't really touch on upgrade potential.  Small-form-factor (SFF) computers are usually no-go areas when it comes to most modifications, but bit-tech have discovered there's a surprising amount of room inside the AspireRevo's casing.

Nokia N97 424MHz ARM11 CPU confirmed: underpowered?

Nokia have released hardware specifications for their N97 smartphone, and it makes for disappointing reading for anyone hoping the QWERTY handset would pack the same CPU and GPU grunt as recent rivals.  According to Nokia, the N97 uses an ARM11 434MHz processor and 128MB of RAM; that’s actually less than the Nokia XpressMusic 5630, which musters up a 600MHz CPU.

Toshiba shipping 32 nm NAND flash already

Toshiba shipping 32 nm NAND flash already

Just two months ago we were talking about Toshiba and their new 32 nm NAND flash memory, and though it was supposed to not see consumers' hands until the fall, it's now available in a limited capacity.

The flash memory will be available for mass consumption by July. The new process employed here uses a 32-gigabit chip, which is 4GB, and when stacked 8 tall, you end up with 32GB of total memory in one tiny space.

While we don't know who will receive the larger flash memory first, it does seem likely that Toshiba will be providing the memory for the iPhone 3.0. The company also notes that USB storage with the new memory capacity will be their first products to carry the 32 nm chip.

Netbook parts scarce claim analysts; Atom overstocked argue others

The netbook market used to be simple.  Small screen, Atom N270 under the hood, slap on a budget tag and cross your fingers.  Now, things are getting far more complex: more processor options from different manufacturers, plus more screen sizes than ever expected.  According to DRAMeXchange, components and parts supplies for netbooks are sufficient to only meet 50 to 70-percent of market demand, leading vendors to consider pushing up prices.

After the cut: is Atom overstocked, or in short-supply?
