Samsung refreshes netbooks with dual-core NC210, among others - 06 February 2011
Samsung has outed three new netbooks, all refreshes to previous models. On offer is the 10.1-inch NC210, which boasts a dual-core, Intel Atom N550 CPU with up to 3GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, LAN, and Bluetooth 3.0. It's also got a VGA port, three USB 2.0 ports, a 4-in-1 card reader, and a 6-cell battery. The company has also trotted out the NC110, which boasts a 1.5GHz, dual-core Atom N570 but seems to be identical to the NC210 other than that. In other, rather less exciting Samsung netbook news, the company also rolled out the NF310, and the NS310, the former one being an LTE-packing 10.1-incher, while the NS310 is yet another netbook of the same size with a metallic chassis. There aren't full specs, pricing or availability yet for any of these models, but you can hit up the source links for more photos

Acer announces Windows and Android tablets - 24 November 2010
And one is a 7-inch tablet ANDROID AND Windows tablets have been announced by Acer at a press conference in New York. It has two 10.1-inch tablets with one using an unspecific Android operating system and the other an unidentified Windows OS. Other than the 10.1-inch size displays both have WiFi and 3G but are designed for different uses. The Android tablet is designed for entertainment and gaming and has what Acer calls 10-point multi-touch and "gyro-meter control," which could be just a g-sensor. It has an HDMI port for a High Definition 1080p "capability," and is 13.3mm thick with an aluminum casing. It will arrive in April but the Windows tablet will tip up in February. The Windows device seems to be more aimed at a business user with a docking station and full sized keyboard that come with it and front and rear facing 1.3MP camera for recording, taking still pictures and video conferencing. There is no mention of HD but its processor is described as "next generation AMD", which could mean a Zambezi CPU or the Fusion branded Ontario accelerated processing unit. Much to the annoyance of Steve Jobs Acer is also launching a 7-inch tablet. Available in April 2011 it uses an unspecified Android OS, has an unidentified dual-core processor, a 1280 x 800 7-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and has WiFi and 3G and will support Flash 10.1 and DNLA and has Dolby Mobile Technology. It also has a front facing "HD" camera for recording or video conferencing and can output HD with an HDMI port. The device's description also hints at phone capabilities when it says the tablet "takes your mobile experience to the next level". By Rob Coppinger

Great Netbook Games - 04 August 2010
It's time to add a new selection of entries to our list of PC games well-suited for Netbooks. Especially as we expect to see many of these low-cost, low-power laptops in the hands of students during the back-to-school season, it's important to have a little action/RPG/adventure/puzzle break handy when one gets tired of taking lecture notes. As usual, many of these entries are re-releases of classic games, originally available when even high-end computer hardware was at best comparable with today's entry-level systems. Online services such as Good Old Games and Steam are great resources for these.
