HP Updates Pavilion DM1 with Beats Audio and New Apps

HP refreshes its Pavilion DM1 laptop with few spec bumps, a new design and some software add-ons.

HP has finally updated its Pavilion DM1 laptop. The 11.6-inch crossover notebook is now equipped with a Beats Audio processing system, providing better sound quality from the speakers and headphones. It is also updated with AMD’s Fusion-based, 1.65GHz E-350 and low-voltage Intel chips — which is expected to make the device faster than before.

The Pavilion DM1 ultraportable laptop also gets a revamped software. An HP Launch Box has just been added, therefore, allowing the applications to be easily organized by grouping them on the Windows 7 taskbar. A simple mouse click would open an application directly from the taskbar, which frees up screen real estate on the notebook’s desktop. The new battery is also notable, as it could support up to 11.5 hours of usage.

There would be two versions for the Pavilion DM1: A charcoal gray model and a unique ash black variant with a soft finish. The gray models will be shipped on September 21 for a price of $400; it will feature an E-450 processor, a Radeon HD 6320 video, 4GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. The variant with Intel processors will be available in charcoal on October 30 for $600; while the ash black versions will be rolled out sometime in fall.

ViewSonic announced their plan to launch a dual-boot 10pro tablet in the US.

ViewSonic has finally announced its 10pro tablet’s launch plans in the US. The tablet has dual-boot capabilities which enables users to run Windows 7 or Android. The latter OS is limited to Google’s Gingerbread build rather than a Honeycomb 3.x variant, which is currently common to high-end Android tablets sharing the same 10.1 inch display size.

The 10pro integrates Intel’s 1.5GHz Atom Z670 processor and 2GB of memory, while the capacitive touchscreen offers 1024 x 600 resolution. The device’ battery is said to last up to eight hours of continuous use. But it is still unclear if both operating systems will provide the same endurance.

Users can choose from any model of Windows 7 Professional with 32GB of storage for $699, or a Windows 7 Home Premium edition with 16GB storage tagged $599. The two models are expected to ship this month alongside a docking station that will sell for $59.

ASUS X101, to Serve as Linux Tablet Alternative

Written on August 05, 2011 by Adam Eve

Despite bearing the hallmarks of a netbook, ASUS will offer its Eee PC X101 as a Linux tablet alternative.

As posted on ASUS’ blog, its Eee PC X101 will serve as an alternative to small laptops despite bearing the hallmark of a netbook. First, at 0.69 inches thin and two pounds in weight, it will be thinner and lighter than a typical netbook. Second, it runs MeeGo Linux instead of Windows 7. While the latter has been the predominant OS for netbooks over the past few years, MeeGo Linux is more suitable to ultrasmall designs which typically doesn’t have the horsepower to efficiently run the Microsoft OS.

Third, the ASUS Eee PC X101 does not have Ethernet ports and VGA.

Seven-inch Android 3.2 Iconia Tab, set to be released in August for $300.

Sources close to the retailer unveiled that ACER Iconia Tab A100 will launch in the U.S earlier than expected.

The tablet is said to hit the market sometime in August with a retail price that is much cheaper than its predecessor. With a cost of only $300 compared to the $450 10-inch A500, this seven-inch tablet still features the same Android 3.2 system and Tegra 2 processor, but will be sporting a much smaller screen and memory storage of 8GB and 512MB RAM.

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

Written on February 23, 2011 by Kristoff Jones

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!
