A new study showed that the Apple is the only PC maker based in Western Europe that is still growing

Gartner stated that Apple was the only major computer manufacturer based in Western Europe that is still growing. That is according to a continent wide breakdown on Wednesday. Apple increased its shipments by half a percent to hit 7% of the market, while other Windows-based PC makers dropped in the same timeframe. HP and Delli gained shares, but still saw their shipments drop by 6.1% and 12.7% respectively. ACER, on the other hand, faced a disastrous flop after its abnormalities in overstock forced it to ship 44.6% fewer PCs, and drop to 2nd place at 16.7%.

The pattern was largely consistent from country to country. Apple gained shares in the UK and had a boost in France where its raw shipments were increase up to 6.4 points. Enough to put it in the top five for the first time. Samsung was one of the few others to see an upside in any area, but only registered in the top five in France.

Apple Might Topple HP Lead in Portable Computer Making

Written on July 02, 2011 by Lulu

0 person

DigiTimes considered that if combined mobile platforms are involved, Apple might topple HP as the most popular portable computer maker.

Apple is now on its way to top the ranks of portable device makers next year. It could topple HP as the most popular portable computer maker if the iPad trend continues.

Apple estimated to ship 15 million MacBooks of all kinds in 2012. If combined with the company’s raised external that is estimated to 60 million iPads on that same year, it could reach the amount of 25 to 30 percent of the estimated portable market. Meanwhile, HP is expected to ship no more than 50 million notebooks this year. And because it can’t count on rapid PC growth, Apple can topple HP when their combined platforms are involved.

Dell’s 7-inch Tablet Has a Keyboard

Written on June 10, 2011 by R. Cruise

Dell is coming up with a design that’s unlike any other tablet found in the market. Their "soon-to-come" 7-inch tablet will be packed with a keyboard.

Instead of imitating the look and feel of the iPad as with the other tablet manufacturers, Dell has apparently improved on the Apple tablet’s weakest characteristic, the keyboard. The split keyboard is part of a slide-out keypad that gives each of its users’ thumbs an easy shot at quick typing.

Dell presented the prototype in both black and white finishes. Each had a rear camera which hopefully will have better quality than the iPad. This tablet gives tech geeks a feeling of déjà vu, as it looks close to the failed tablets of five years ago that Microsoft and Intel codenamed “Project Origami.”

Stolen laptop? Though we might not be able to track where it is, we can do a system lockdown through a simple SMS. What are we talking about? We're talking about the Intel Core vPro processor.

Nothing says “you’re screwed” more than having your laptop, tablet or desktop containing corporate and private data lost or stolen. Intel is right on the case for those scenarios as they’ve unveiled its second-generation Core vPro processors which allows you to disable a lost or stolen unit through an encrypted SMS over a 3G network. Should the unit and system miraculously comes back, then another SMS can unlock it. The Core vPro is available on Intel’s new Core i3, i5, and i7 business chips. And no, the technology to track your stolen laptops still hangs in the air.

Apple: No Show at CES 2011

Written on January 03, 2011 by Adam Eve

What do you call it when you have 120,000 people and an elephant in the room? It's the International Consumer Electronics Show. Too bad, the elephant - Apple Inc. - is no show at the event.

The Cupertino-based company, Apple Inc., will not be present at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show. It’s a bit disappointing, knowing that iPad is the most important new product for the industry. The iPad sales have been strong since its debut, cracking the code for the computer tablet market single-handedly. Though Apple is known for staging its own event whenever they present a product, it would be fun to see the company as an elephant at the CES wherein nearly every other known manufacturers are present. Majority of these competitors will show off their tablets, including Motorola and Dell.
