Qualcomm Delays 1.5GHz Dual-Core CPU Until 2011, 1.3GHz Chip Expected This Year

Labels: , ,

At CES we heard that Qualcomm's (QSD8672) 1.5GHz dual-core CPU for mobile devices would hit the market by the end of the year. Well, Qualcomm has sadly announced that the CPU has been delayed until early 2011. Before that chip hits the scene Qualcomm will be pushing out the QSD8650a chip which will be clocked at 1.3GHz. That'll likely be available by the end of this year. Either way, devices are about to get that much faster.

HP Looking To Revamp Notebook Line-Up For the Summer

Labels: , , , , , ,

HP could be gearing up for a bunch of notebooks for the Summertime. The HP dm4 notebook could be outed with Intel / AMD CPUs along with switchable graphics and an optical drive. This will, of course, sport a 14-inch display and could also have an aluminum body. HP's dv6 and dv7 notebooks will reportedly also be getting an aluminum lid along with a chiclet keyboard and the buttonless trackpad (which HP will hopefully improve). The dv6 could sport an optional touchscreen display and quad-core AMD processors which would be a first.

The dv5 could also be making a comeback as well, which will be a great addition. Let's hope HP can confirm this in a couple of weeks / months because Summer is almost here.

HP Launches the 17-Inch EliteBook 8740w Notebook, Starts At $2,000

Labels: , ,

We knew this was coming and it's official. HP has just launched the EliteBook 8740w which is a 17-inch notebook for the professionals out there. It's packing a mighty fine spec sheet including a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution LED-backlit display, Core i5 / i7-820QM CPU options, Nvidia Quadro / ATI FirePro graphics options, up to 16GB of RAM, and various HDD options (no SSD options though). There's also room for two USB 3.0 ports, eSATA / VGA / RJ45 / Firewire ports, a possible Gobi chipset, an optional 2MP webcam. The sad part about all of this is that there is no HDMI output, which is a real big let down.

The base model for this notebook will cost you $2,000, while the high-end model will cost you $3,900. Crunch Gear points out that it's a solid match to the Dell Precision M6500, but the Dell model actually has a Core i7-920XM option so it's definitely faster - then again the Dell is more expensive, starting at $2,749. Choose wisely.
