A Mini Server for Your Home

If you have multiple computers in your home, managing them can become a full-time job, especially for the most computer-savvy person in the home. Regular backups, transferring data and eliminating duplicate files is time consuming. But the TS mini Home Server from ASUS makes managing computers much easier, and it adds a lot of functionality to your home network.


3D on the PC

The successful 3D movie Avatar has stirred up huge interest in 3D technology. Manufacturers are now pushing 3D television sets, even though there’s currently not much 3D content to watch on them. Of course, PC manufacturers don’t want to watch the bandwagon roll on by, so they’re introducing 3D PCs. One such example is ASUS’s new G51J 3D, a 15.6" notebook computer with 3D graphics built right in.

The New Kid in Town: USB 3.0

Unless you are on the bleeding edge of technology, chances are you haven’t used a USB 3.0 device yet. And unless you’re constantly reading up on the latest and greatest technology, you might not even know what USB 3.0 is all about.As the name implies, USB 3.0 is the successor to the ubiquitous UBS 2.0 interface. It provides faster transfer rates -- up to 5.0Gbps using a technology dubbed SuperSpeed. This is more than ten times the speed of USB 2.0 and, while you won’t get speeds like that in real-life use, you will see significant improvements over USB 2.0. It is also significantly faster than eSATA, FireWire-800, and FireWire-400.

The Asus Eee PCT101MT-EU17: Lightweight Tablet and Netbook

Manufacturers have been in the business of perfecting tablet computers for almost 10 years, and in that time we have seen some highs, but plenty of lows. Mastering the touch sensitive technology of a stylus and most recently, a touchscreen has been a long arduous process. But now we are witnessing a renaissance of sorts with a new wave of tablet PCs that are sure to become ubiquitous as mobile technology continues to evolve. Designed around the convertible design of tablet PCs, the Asus Eee PC T101MT-EU17 is the latest entry in touchscreen PCs. Looking like a typical netbook, the 10.1" LED display is attached at a single hinge that can rotate 180º, fold down on top of the keyboard, and transform into a tablet, providing a flat writing surface.

A PC for Under the Tree

That old computer is getting longer in the tooth. Sure, when you got it, Windows Me was the latest and greatest, and it had a whopping 40GB hard drive… maybe even 256MB of RAM. Imagine that. Nowadays, that computer seems like it belongs in Barney Rubble's den, not your home office. If you're faced with the oft-daunting task of choosing a new computer, read on for a few suggestions.
