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.

Sony Buffs VAIO S Series with Core i5-2410M Processor and Radeon HD 6470M Graphics

It's a perfect mix of style and functionality, though Sony could have been more creative in the naming department.

After the prototype that we’ve seen during the CES 2011, Sony has finally unveiled the revamped version of the VAIO S laptop series that gives more power with its Core i5-2410M CPU plus the Radeon HD 6470M graphics. Sony described the series as a mobile PC that “packs greater stamina with less to carry.”

Although the specs are completely different from its predecessor, we’re just dumbfounded why Sony didn’t just rename the entire series instead of making one overlap the other. But in any case, the 13-inch, 3.9-pound, Windows 7 Professional OS-driven laptops are here struting all the right moves to the same target market of the previous VAIO S Series captured.

Check out the specs after the break!
