Hands on: Asus Zenbook

Ultrabooks are the PC world’s latest attempt to wrestle back more of the portability market from tablets. In a nutshell, ultrabooks aim to deliver the grunt of a notebook within the petitie frame of a netbook – following in the footsteps of Apple’s MacBook Air.

Two weeks ago I took a look at the Toshiba Satellite Z830, a 13.3-inch ultrabook that’s packed with features but hampered by the somewhat cramped keyboard. Today I’m sitting down with an Asus Zenbook, which is available in four models; a choice of 11.6-inch or 13.3-inch displays sporting Core i5 or i7 processors. I’m looking at the 11.6-inch Zenbook UX21E RY008V with the Core i7 powerplant.

Apple Launches Magic Trackpad, Speedier iMacs and Mac Pros

After a period of downtime this morning, the Apple Store is now back and, as expected, it now carries refreshed, faster iMac and Mac Pro computers, as well as a completely new product called the Magic Trackpad.


After a period of downtime this morning, the Apple Store is now back and, as expected, it now carries refreshed, faster iMac and Mac Pro computers, as well as a completely new product called the Magic Trackpad.

The $69 Magic Trackpad is designed to work with your Mac desktop computer and uses the same multi-touch technology as the MacBook Pro. “[It] supports a full set of gestures, giving you a whole new way to control and interact with what’s on your screen,” Apple describes on its product page. It is intended to be used either in place of a mouse or together with one via Bluetooth.

The iMac line has been thoroughly updated with Intel’s Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors and new graphics, and starts at $1,199. While that’s on the expensive side, it also includes 2.93 GHz quad-core CPU, and ATI Radeon HD 5750 graphics.

Video pros will probably be excited to see the new Mac Pros, the strongest of which now sports a drool-inducing 12 cores (that’s 24 virtual cores if you count Intel’s hyper-threading technology). If you’re so inclined, you can bump up your Mac Pro with a 512 GB SSD, as well as ATI Radeon HD 5870 with 1GB of memory. If you have to ask, the price starts at $4,999.

Finally, there’s the new IPS-based 27-inch LED Cinema Display with a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution, a perfect companion for the 27” iMac if you need more screen real estate. It comes with built-in MagSafe charging, iSight camera, speakers, and three USB ports.
