LG X300

LG X300

The LG X300 is simply not just a netbook. This ultraportable uses an 11.6–inch screen while weighing just 2.1 pounds at a thickness of 0.7 inch! The processor will reportedly be a 2.0 GHz Atom with RAM options up to 2GB. A 128GB SSD is an optional extra. The battery is supposedly just a 2–cell type but they claim that it can reach 7 hours of use.

This should be a fairly popular netbook.

Mobility & Ergonomics

It’s almost always never perfectly comfortable when using a laptop or a netbook. Despite all the possible positions you can do while working with a portable device, none of them is good enough to make you work comfortably all day. Here’s a list of common positions we put ourselves into and the stress they cause to our bodies.

Buying an LCD? Noticed how LCD manufacturers have humongous values for contrast ratio that seem too out of this world? None of that is based on any scientific standard and they are all just trying to outdo each other. Nothing beats looking at the screen itself and trying them side–by–side. If the screen’s specifications are available, get one with an IPS panel as opposed to the more common TN panels. You’ll love the better viewing angles. Comments Off on Buying an LCD?

The Apple Refresh of Q4 2009

2009 Apple iMac

It would be a surprise if you haven’t heard about the news on Apple’s updates to its consumer computing line, so I’ll just give some brief details on them. The new Apple iMac now comes in 21.5 and 27 inch widescreen versions, with resolutions more than enough for typical users. The cheaper model sports full HD 1920×1080, while the more expensive one has 2560×1440. Wow.

2009 Apple MacBook

The new white MacBook is now almost the same as the MacBook Pro with the same LED–backlit screen, multitouch glass trackpad, and 7–hour battery life. With a 250GB hard disk, it has more storage than the cheapest MacBook Pro, making it seem like a better a value.

Apple Magic Mouse

To cap it all, the new Magic Mouse is one of the coolest pointing devices ever made, being a mouse and a touch surface in one package. The joke’s that it also magically makes your 70 USD disappear.

And while we’re talking about Apple new products, there’s still a few more updated products that aren’t getting enough attention right now.

HP Mini 311

HP Mini 311

The HP Mini 311 is a new netbook that pairs Intel’s Atom processor with Nvidia’s new Ion platform to produce a new type of product that should be more common in the coming days—ones that packs strong graphic performance in small computing devices. With an 11.6–inch display at a resolution of 1366×768, the HP Mini 311 blurs the line between netbooks and notebooks.

If only HP’s service was better here in the Philippines, I’d love to get one for myself.
