Dell OptiPlex 9010 AIO review

Dell's business-class 23in. all-in-one desktop has a lot to recommend it, including unfussy design, solid construction, low power consumption and quiet operation. However, its graphics performance is moderate, the screen's viewing angles could be better and it's not cheap.

Lenovo ThinkPad T420s

Much of this ThinkPad's design — and particularly the excellent keyboard — is traditional, but it packs plenty of up-to-date specs too: Core i7 CPU, hybrid discrete/integrated graphics, solid-state drive, USB 3.0 and a high-quality multimedia subsystem. All this makes for an expensive notebook, but it's one we're happy to recommend.

Toshiba NB550D mini; a netbook with something different

AMD hopes to challenge Intel's Atom-based dominance of the netbook market by combining a low-power CPU with the equivalent of last year's discrete graphics card in a single package. Toshiba is using the 1GHz C-50 in its new high-end netbook, the NB550D mini, which comes in a sturdy little 1.

Ubuntu Unity Adds 2D Support

Yesterday evening I downloaded the latest Ubuntu Natty daily build, and booted the Live image on one of my netbooks. I was surprised to see a 2D rendering of the Unity desktop, rather than the usual scolding about "underpowered graphics" and getting dropped back to a normal Gnome desktop.

As AMD prepares Radeon HD 6000 graphics cards, is Nvidia ready to cut price on GTX 460?

Even if Nvidia's recent roll out of graphics cards based on its new Fermi architecture has slightly dulled AMD's momentum in the graphics market, the Radeon brand is still rolling along, with Nvidia supposedly mulling a price cut on one of its new boards. At the same time, AMD is readying its new Radeon HD 6000 series, which will be more of an evolutionary step forward from the 5000 series, but should continue to put pressure on Nvidia.

The 3D laptops are coming fast and furious now, with Toshiba announcing one the other day and now the normally staid Lenovo venturing into the third dimension with the IdeaPad Y560d.The Y560d is a little different in that it uses passive polarized 3D glasses rather than active-shutter ones, and uses an ATI Radeon HD 5730 graphics card instead of an Nvidia one.

For all of its success, one thing Intel could never master was the standalone graphics card, eventually ceding the market to Nvidia and ATI/AMD.
