Intel's upcoming 2011 SSD lineup leaked -- five new series include PCIe-based drive

Even if you can still get more storage per dollar with a traditional hard drive, the market for solid state drives is red-hot, and Intel appears intent on leading the way. It's already released a couple of new SSD families this year, and a slide leaked to Engadget shows that the chip giant plans an additional five new series for the rest of 2011, including a version that uses the PCI Express interface.

Windows 7: Good enough to pay for?

I finally installed the Windows 7 release candidate that the folks from Microsoft were kind enough to pass on a couple weeks ago at the Intel Classmate Ecosystem Summit. I could have installed it on my Mac, but I already have Vista running with Boot Camp with a fair amount of Windows software that I didn't want to reinstall (or couldn't for lack of install media).

Dell has released its second Intel Atom-based laptop, the Inspiron Mini 12. Because it carries the Mini moniker and uses Atom, the Mini 12 is widely referred to as a netbook even though it blurs the lines with conventional laptops with its 12-inch display and Windows Vista Home Edition.

Intel stays behind the curve ... again

Intel’s decision to continue using Windows XP instead of migrating to Windows Vista is being spun as a stunning rebuke to Microsoft and a rejection of Windows Vista. Except that there’s nothing new here. The same thing happened in 2002, when Windows XP was shiny and new. Corporations like Intel are always slow to roll out new Windows versions.

Intel's Atom burns Microsoft, brings back memories

Even if you don't approve of violence in the media, it is impossible not to admire the finesse with which Intel is twisting the knife inside Vista's vital organs. Not content with forcing Microsoft to downgrade the Vista Capable sticker requirement so that it included Intel's outdated 915 chip – and excluded Vista capability – Intel is now gleefully pumping XP full of monkey glands and sending it cakes full of files, ahead of its planned execution in June.

The latest PC market scandal - that Microsoft, Intel and some PC makers knew that the "Vista Capable" logo certification program was a lie and that some chipsets for popular machines couldn't support the new Aero interface stuff - must be music in the executive suites down in Cupertino. The story provides more evidence to PC users that there's a good reason to join the switcher movement to the Mac.
