ay the name Alienware to me and I automatically think of expensive and big gaming notebooks crammed full of tons of hardware. Alienware is still certainly making machines that fit that image, but the company also has smaller and more portable offerings for the computer user that needs portability.
Specifications of a new Alienware portable notebook have surfaced online and the machine sounds interesting. It’s called the M14x and wit will use an 11-inch screen making it portable. The machine is said to use an 8-cell battery with 63Wh of juice inside. Storage options are pegged to range 250GB to 750GB with SSD options up to 256GB.
RAM will be 1GB to 4GB DDR3 and the little notebook will be offered with Core i3-2310M up to i7-2820QM CPU options. The screen will come in a 1920 x 1080 resolution HD optional and a standard 1366 x 768 screen. There is no word on what GPU will be inside the little rig at this point and pricing isn’t known either.
HP has unveiled a new line of notebook computers that have cool designs and some nice hardware. The new line includes the dv6 and dv7 and they use some of the design elements from the ENVY line of notebooks. The machines have Beats Audio and feature USB 3.0 ports. The dv6 and dv7 have four speakers each for ideal sound for movies and music.
The main difference between the two is that the dv6 has a 15.6-inch screen and the dv7 has a 17.3-inch screen. Both machines can be had with Core i5 or i7 processors and optional Radeon 6000M graphics. Storage is up to 1TB for the dv6 and up to 2TB for the dv7.
HP has also unveiled the new g-series computers with the g4, g6, and g7. The machines are aimed at the mainstream everyday user with reliable performance, attractive designs with lots of features. The machines have BrightView displays and Altec Lansing speakers with SRS Premium audio. Pricing is unannounced on the dv6 and dv7 machines and the g series will cost $499.99 for the g4, $449.99 for the g6, and $599.99 for the g7.
Scythe has unveiled another new CPU cooling solution today called the Mine 2. The thing is a big and blocky looking CPU cooler that has a fan wedged between two sides of a metal heat sink. The model number for the CPU cooler is SCMN-2000.
The Mine 2 will fit Intel socket T LGA775, LGA1155, LGA1156, and LGA1366. It will also work on certain AMD sockets like AM2, AM2+, and AM3. The heat sink measures 130 x 143 x 160mm and weighs 40.75 ounces including the fan.
It comes with the Scythe FMSB3 back plate system that mounts to the mainboard securely and it has a manual fan controller that plugs into an expansion slot on the back of the chassis. The fan spins at 740 to 1900 rpm. The Mine 2 will sell for 50.50 euro and will ship this month.
Guys, here’s a bad news 😛 :-
Microsoft’s Kinect motion controller has been out for less than two months and already there’s an adult company looking to produce a 3-D sex game for the Xbox 360 console. Thrixxx
But Microsoft, maker of Kinect and Xbox, immediately shot down any speculation that the game will pass the certification process.
^ 😛 Here it is, enjoy. This is the only archive I could have found related to this topic.
Kinect enables video game players to move characters through the use of real-life movements made possible by 3-D object scanning and manipulation. Kinect uses cameras and microphones to track movement and voice commands as a controller.
So the Web was buzzing earlier this week when ThriXXX, an Austria-based game company, posted a YouTube video featuring a graphic demo of a 3-D adult game using the controller for Xbox 360.
But when Microsoft was asked about the prospects of the game actually making it to the video game console, a spokesperson said in a statement that it wasn’t going to happen. Xbox
“This isn’t the first example of a technology being used in ways not intended by its manufacturer, and it won’t be the last,” the statement said.
“Microsoft did not authorize or license its technology for this use,” it said. “Xbox is a family friendly games and entertainment console and does not allow Adults Only (AO) content to be certified for use on its platform, and would not condone this type of game for Kinect.”
My friend bought the Kinect, his party was perished after reading this :P.
