Hands-on Review

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.

IPS monitors are high resolution computer monitors that provide clear images and accurate color from almost every angle you happen to view. They are normally a tool for pro photographers, printers, graphic designers and post-production professionals who demand exacting contrast, details and color replication.

Whether you’ve just bought a retail computer or built one yourself, there’s one thing that happens to both of them the moment you turn them on: they quickly become obsolete. Technology is always changing and you’ll find yourself constantly trying to keep up with the latest upgrades. A quad-core processor may seem like a fast processor, but now AMD makes an eight-core processor.

This holiday season, many people are out and about buying new Wi-Fi-enabled cameras, televisions, music players and more. Many more are buying laptops, tablets and desktop PCs, all with wired and wireless capabilities. Then these people are going home, unboxing their purchases, and waiting patiently for the wireless fairy to come down and connect everything.

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.

When you're looking for a gift for someone less technologically inclined than yourself, you might find that choosing the right gift can be tough. How technologically disinclined are they? Are we talking just a little behind the times? A generation behind the iPad? Still using eight-track tapes?

It’s nice to take opportunities like holiday parties and corporate gatherings to say thank you to your co-workers, colleagues, employees and clients. If you’re on a gift list of some kind, or if you’re looking for a present that says "thank you" while still keeping things professional, then you’ve come to the right place.

Ultrabooks are more than just glorified netbooks or tablets with keyboards attached to them. They don’t sacrifice performance just to fit in your book bag. In fact, Ultrabooks find that perfect balance between fast, reliable performance and ultraportability.

Whether it’s Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Cyber Monday or Begrudgingly-Back-to-Regular-Retail-Prices Tuesday, purchasing a computer can be quite daunting. Chances are, the notebook and desktop computers on sale are prebuilt and have limited flexibility when it comes to specs.

I know you’re probably out there right now looking to purchase me your usual assortment of socks and sweaters as holiday gifts, but I was hoping this year to leave this letter on the kitchen counter and have you read this before you went shopping.

Many students, artists and creative professionals have a strong taste for everything Apple. The Mac computer brand is more a lifestyle than a mere product. People use Mac computers because they are configured to perform in a manner that enhances creativity.

In October of 2012, Microsoft released Windows 8, their latest operating system. Banking on a new touch-based, user-friendly interface, Windows 8 is vastly different from its Windows 7 predecessor. The first thing you’ll notice is that the traditional Start menu that Microsoft has had for the longest time was replaced with a new Start screen using “live tiles.”

2012 was an incredibly busy and prosperous year for Apple. We saw totally new designs for both computers and mobile devices, and updates to nearly every product line.

Tablets may seem like a fad to power PC users, but their success last year has turned heads in the industry. Tablets are not only here to stay, they’re commanding far more interest from consumers than was previously thought. Although Apple’s iPad is still one of the most popular tablets, many princes have come forward to try and claim the throne.

The first thing you notice about the ASUS PB278Q 27” Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor is its large 27-inch screen. Considering that this is a monitor and you’ll be sitting much closer to it than you would to an HDTV, the 27 inches really becomes magnified.
