Speed is an attractive feature whether you're looking to recalculate a massive spreadsheet or drive a souped-up roadster along a virtual racetrack. The trouble is that an over-clocked PC tends to overheat. Enter CyberpowerPC, a company that has mastered the art of manufacturing desktop and gaming systems with built-in liquid cooling.
Last year at CES, it was all about the Ultrabook. Ultrathin and ultraportable but yet still powerful enough to be used as a capable computer, the Ultrabook was everything people wanted in a notebook. Now it seems that CES 2013 was all about the mobile all-in-one computer.
It appears that not even all-in-one (AIO) desktop computers are immune to the “tablet craze” taking over the computing industry. It’s no secret that tablets have grown in popularity, primarily for their ease of use and portability, but their influence has leaked over to other devices.
Remember when desktop computers used to have single-core processors, which would take an eternity just to open a Word document? Me neither. That’s because dual-core and even quad-core central processing units (CPUs) have become the standard for desktop computers.
With Mother's Day looming just before us, now might be a great time to open your mom's mind to the usefulness and convenience of tablet computing. The iPad is tremendously popular, and an awesome piece of technical goodness to boot. But there are many other tablets to choose from.
Samsung’s Series 7 Windows notebooks pack plenty of processing power into a compact, sleek chassis. Featuring a dual- or quad-core Intel processor and loaded with 8GB of RAM, the 15.6" models are less than an inch thick and weigh just over 5 lb.
All-in-one desktop computers have proven their value as multi-purpose space savers for people with large needs but limited room. Now, Toshiba has introduced two DX735 All-in-One Desktop Computer models with ample 23-inch Full HD displays that double as multi-touch screens.
You can’t beat the intrinsic value of desktop computers like these Dell Inspiron 560 and 570 towers. No notebook or all-in-one computer comes close in terms of price, performance and expandability. Whether you want to use a screen you already own or buy the computer with an oversize monitor, Dell offers seven systems that let you configure it your way.
Hardcore gamers and production software users have something in common: they both rely on beefy, turbo-charged computers to run their favorite programs (whether it’s Premiere Pro, Nuendo, World of Warcraft or otherwise).
Times are good for gamers these days. Online gaming is now more popular than ever, and is showing no signs of slowing. The games themselves become more realistic every year. Computer technology, too, is advancing at an incredible rate.
When an under-the-desk tower is too imposing and a notebook too cramped, consider an all-in-one desktop computer such as the Dell Inspiron One 2305. Available in three configurations, the 2305 series offers a stylish tabletop system for anyone looking to save space without sacrificing an ample keyboard and full-size screen.
Gaming, on the PC platform, used to be reserved for desktop systems. Notebook computers simply weren’t powerful enough. But today, notebook computers are more powerful than they need to be even for high-end gaming. A good example is the ASUS G74SX, available in two trim levels, the G74SX-A1 and G74SX-A2.
Optical discs have been common for more than 30 years now, and scratched discs have been common for just as long. Just about everyone has experienced a CD that skips or a DVD that freezes. Optical discs are read by lasers, and a little scratch or splotch of grease is all it takes to interrupt the reading process. Sometimes you can simply clean or polish a disc and it will work like new.
The three-dimensional images captured by a Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W3 Digital Camera are best appreciated when the camera is attached by HDMI cable to a 3D TV viewed with LCD shutter glasses, but what if you want to see the pictures on a computer while you’re wearing anaglyphic glasses?
If you’ve ever had a folder full of files, and you wanted to convert the names of the files to editable text, you’ve probably realized that it’s not such a simple thing to do. You might want to do this if you have a large collection of still images, songs or video clips and want to compile a list of them in a Word document or Excel chart.
