Quick Response Thanks To Solid State Drive.
Feb 22 2011 - Apple's MacBook Air 11-inch is an impressive achievement in technology. The laptop is thinner and lighter than any netbook on the market but provides superior performance. Of course, at $999 it is much more expensive but less than the past base MacBook Air. Compared to other ultraportables, it does sacrifice performance, storage and running time to provide its ultrathin profile.
Anyone who recalls Steve Jobs railing against netbooks at the launch of the iPad might have been puzzled when the same guy revealed the latest addition to the MacBook Air line in October. With an 11.6-inch screen, barebones processor, no optical drive and all solid state storage, it wouldn’t seem like a stretch to throw it in with a handful of similar models from Asus, Acer and Dell.
Apple's MacBook Air isn't for everyone; its modest specifications, limited ports and relatively small storage will disappoint some. However, those after a light, functional and superbly built ultraportable notebook with excellent battery life won't be disappointed. The MacBook Air's full-size keyboard and trackpad, along with an excellent screen, are enough to make this an excellent option for those users for whom mobility is a key concern.
We still have reservations about the MacBook Air. The improved graphics performance does make it feel a lot smoother and more responsive than before. However, itÃ¢â? ¬â? ¢s still very expensive, and design decisions such as the non-replaceable battery just seem extremely short-sighted. Still very thin. Yet, for all its limitations, the sheer quality of the design shines through. ItÃ¢â? ¬â? ¢s not just the look of the machine that matters Ã¢â? ¬â?? the feel of it is important too.
Very small and light power pack
In terms of its features alone, the Archos Internet tablet 101 offers a lot for the money. USB and HDMI open up flexible application fields and Android 2.2 is a solid basis for the target group its aiming for. The mobile characteristics are very good with battery runtimes of around 9 hours and a test weight of 530g.
If you're looking for a solid, unassuming laptop for a small or medium-sized business, the E5510 deserves consideration.
Dell's Latitude E5510 offers new CPU options in the company's low-end 15-inch business line, but for better prices, watch for sales.

The ProBook 4520s is a sturdy, stylish business laptop that performs well at work or on the go.
Right balance between performance and features
The Aspire 4820T-5570 TimelineX offers the right balance between performance and features not to mention a very thin and light 14-inch laptop with remarkable battery life. If you do not care much graphics and above all in a slim, lightweight 14-inch laptop, the ideal interest for outdoor use with unprecedented battery life, we recommend the Acer Aspire 4820T-5570 TimelineX.
Intriguing Clear Image Zoom feature
Like every other camera under the sun, the true worth of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55 will depend on its picture quality. But we're impressed by its small size and dashing good looks, and the list of features jammed inside this compact snapper is not to be sniffed at. Stay tuned for the full review soon.
The Samsung R540 is a run-of-the-mill budget notebook that fails to impress. The subpar build quality takes the first ticket in the complaint department: the plastic chassis has significant flex and does not inspire confidence. Next on the list is the touchpad, which is too small for a 15.6-inch screen, and the keyboard, which is strangely missing home/end/page up/page down keys despite being full-sized.
Speedy CPU and GPU can drive any application.
The quick processor and graphics chip performance only partly offset the mediocre screen and weak battery. The quick processor and graphics chip performance only partly offset the mediocre screen and weak battery. A great all-purpose unit with superior gaming potential. The Samsung Q430 skimps on the display and ports, but strong performance and battery life do much to offset that problem. Above-average sound, performance, and gaming highlight this otherwise staid midsize laptop.
