Acer Unveil Aspire M3800 and M5800 Desktop PCs

Labels: , , , ,

Acer is set to surpass Dell soon as the second largest PC maker, so here's another small push to be that company. Today, they unveiled the Aspire M3800 desktop PC that has: a 2.5GHz Pentium CPU, integrated X4500 graphics, and an HDMI out. It costs $450 USD in a tower and $529 USD in a "low-profile case", but the bottom line is that it's not that interesting. The Aspire M5800 steps it up with: a 2.66GHz Core 2 Quad CPU, 8GB of RAM, a 1.5GB GeForce GT230 graphics card, a 740GB HDD, and HDMI out. This will cost just $800 USD, so it's a pretty good deal.


Windows Marketplace Launching With 600 Apps; Fennec Alpha 2 Now Available For WinMo Users

Labels: , , ,

Microsoft France's product manager for Windows Mobile, Audrey Zolghadr, has just mentioned that Windows Marketplace will launch with around 600 apps. This is pretty good, seeing how Palm's App Catalog launched and it still has only a few apps available. It'll be a pretty good start if half of these apps are decent. We'll just have to see how it does when it officially launches. On a side note, I can't wait for Windows Mobile 7.

Mozilla has just released Alpha 2 of their browser, Fennec. This time it's available for all Windows Mobile users and not just HTC Touch Pro owners - like Alpha 1. With this version, they improved a couple of things. Check the list below.

  • Improved panning performance

  • Newly designed theme

  • JavaScript error console is now built in

  • Improved add-on support

  • Numerous bug fixes

  • Improved UI polish

    Lenovo IdeaPad S12 Gets New VIA Nano CPU Option

    Labels: , ,

    The IdeaPad S12 has been around since Wednesday, but Lenovo has already added another option to it. The IdeaPad S12 now has a new option for a VIA Nano ULV 2250 CPU with VIA Chrome9 HC3 graphics. This would drop $50 USD off of the original price of $500. This option will give you more speed - in some cases - but it will sacrifice more battery life, than the Atom, in the process. But, don't forget that you can always upgrade the standard 6-cell battery option if you like. So, that's $450 USD for the VIA Nano CPU-equipped IdeaPad S12 with a standard 6-cell battery option. Got it?
