Acer Aspire One Happy Review : Netbook with Dual boot Android and Windows 7

Posted by tottx 3 comments
This is the Acer Aspire One Happy, netbook "happy" because it has dual boot, or the ability to choose the operating system to use.

When switched on, in fact, the charge Apiro One Android, an operating system from the cell has infiltrated into many types of devices such as tablet, the PMP and even in the hybrid tablet / e-book reader Adam Notion Ink.

With Android the Aspire One will start in seconds and offers all the features that can be used. For those still not familiar with Android, Google's operating system is very similar to that of a PC to function.

In addition to mail and browser to surf the internet, in fact, you can download applications to create text documents and even simple photo and video editing programs, in addition to various applications like Google Maps, Facebook, Twitter and more.

Compared to mobile phones, the advantage of Android netbook keyboard is more comfortable than that of mobile phones for long texts. To use the software running under Windows, simply click on the left corner of the screen and it will launch Windows 7.

Android is Windows run well on hardware that the model sold in Italy (Atom N450 1.6 GHz, 250 GB hard drive, Bluetooth, 1 GB of RAM) and, especially for Windows, the experience is similar to that of notebooks.

Multitasking applications running well at the same time allowing us to open the browser with a dozen cards, one or two programs of the Office Suite 2010 (included free), chat programs like Messenger and Skype and the image viewer.

Of course, switching from one window to another requires a fraction of a second longer, and sometimes we have to endure some delays (especially in the situation described above if you open pages with a lot of content in flash) but all in bear.

We also tried to upload some image editing program and even in this case, the Aspire One managed to impress. For traditional operations such as resizing and some graphic effect there were no problems and even video editing (standard resolution) went smoothly.

Given the excellent performance of this configuration, the version with Dual Core Atom N550 could also handle HD video editing.

We find the connections between WiFi and Bluetooth, while on the side of the body parade 3 USB ports, ethernet port and memory card reader.

As for the WiFi and Bluetooth radio is missing the classic physical key to turn them off, forcing us to adjust everything by a function key on a PC, not a serious thing but now we had become accustomed to the physical switch.

It should be about what the line is cleaner. Beautiful shiny plastic covers available in various colors, but if you look for a netbook you should speak to the elegant elsewhere. The Aspire One is nice to see but the white plastic base and screen frame is a bit 'Spartan.

Beautiful to see, instead, the screen 10-inch LED-backlit who unfortunately has the usual resolution of 1024 × 600, a bit 'castrating for web browsing as it forces often use the mouse wheel.

The brightness and contrast are still good and also allow us to use the open without problems. In the average netbook (translated: Scarsini) the built-in speakers in the case. In this regard, counsel for those who want to see a movie or listen to music, one of the soundbar to the clip as a Philips or Logitech proposed (reviewed here).

Moving on to the keyboard and can not complain, especially if you are coming from the PC desktop, after a period necessary to take measurements of the keys closer to each other, you can write with my eyes closed and speed. Convenient multi-gesture touch pad that allows you to zoom in and is nearly invisible (if not for the bar with the left and right mouse button) on the case.

Summing up, the Acer Aspire One Happy is definitely a netbook that could add as a feature almost unique Android operating system for which he is productive in a few seconds, which is very handy when you travel frequently and you have a piece of time at the airport to example.

The battery, along with low-power processor, was able to pull up to 8 hours, allowing us to have autonomy, even if sometimes we forget to upload

Despite this performance is remarkable and this also allows you to upload a few games (WOW runs fine for example) and do light editing. The weight and size also saves space in the suitcase, especially in those small for check-in baggage (in particular, low cost airlines, which allow one piece of luggage), it's all to the good .

Weaknesses? Well, as I said the design, although beautiful and colorful, can not be regarded as elegant as some competitive products and push the version with Atom N550 could be interesting.

Asus Eee PC 1015PEM Review. Late August, Intel launched the presence of their first dual-core processor designed specifically for the Atom N550 netbook platform. The processor is the first dual-core Atom processors are aimed at netbook.

Along with the presence of these processors, Intel said a number of partners they directly deliver their products that utilize netbook Atom N550 into the market. One of them is Asustek with the Eee PC netbook series 1015PEM.

Asus Eee PC 1015PEMDesign and Specifications
From the design, netboook 1015PEM Eee PC is similar to the Eee PC 1015PE who had already been present in the market. This netbook also use matte plastic casing and keyboard design chicklet.

Keyboard with these designs facilitate those who have larger fingers than average so as not to slip pressing a button next to the button he meant. Unfortunately, there are several buttons that have a small size to keep raises the risk of one push.

To move the cursor, Asus provides a touchpad measuring 7.6 x 4 inches. Wide enough for a netbook. To click, though there are no buttons left and right, because both are fused into a button, you can still click as usual. The following is a brief specification of the Asus Eee PC 1015PEM.

Processor: Intel Atom N550 1.5 GHz, 1MB cache
Chipset: Intel Express chipset NM10
Memory: 1GB DDR3
VGA: Intel GMA 3150
Display: 10.1 inch 1024x600 LED Backlight
Harddisk: 160GB, 2.5 "SATA 5400rpm
Sound / speakers: Integrated stereo speakers, HD Audio CODEC
Optical Drive: -
Battery: 6 cell Lithium Ion battery up to 13 hours
Connectivity: WiFi, Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth
External Ports: VGA, RJ-45, Mic / Headphone, 3 USB 2.0, card reader
Dimensions: 262 x 178 x 23.6 to 36.4 mm
Weight: 1.27 Kg (with 6 cell battery)
Operating system: Windows 7 Starter Edition
Warranty: 1 year

Eee PC 1015PEM have the same completeness as netbooks in general. VGA port and a USB port on the left side and two on the right allows the user to connect a USB modem or an external hard drive while still recharge the battery cell phone and MP3 player, for example.

To do video conferencing, Asus provides a 0.3 megapixel camera at the top of the screen. Interestingly, there is a 'door' slide in front of the camera lens. It's quite useful to ensure that the camera will not catch the user when he is not ready.

This netbook also has a facility called Express Gate. Feature is application 'instant-on' Linux-based operating system that can be directly used in about 5 seconds after the button is pressed. If users only need to surf the internet, chatting, communicating through Skype, simply press the button on the left corner to activate this feature. Now if you want to get into the operating system Windows 7, the button is on the right hand corner.

Performance Test
Using the Express Gate feature, less than 10 seconds we can immediately surf the Internet. Unfortunately, when we try to explore, we need to connect the ethernet cable to the LAN port. Unable to use WiFi.

In terms of performance, dual core processors are used, despite their lower clock that is only 1.5 GHz and the system makes the application more responsive when running.

Through the application of RightMark CPU Clock Utility, noted that the battery on this netbook has the full capacity of 56.305mWh. If used continuously, the application estimates that the battery can last up to 5 hours 26 minutes.

The test battery life we do use the application Imtec Battery Mark. When tested, and by enabling the CPU load, carrying batteries can last for 4 hours 46 minutes.

From a brief experiment that we do, Asus Eee PC with dual core processors we can recommend to you who are looking for compact portable computer, with a somewhat decent processor in terms of speed. Battery that can last up to 5 hours or more, depending on how to use a netbook, too bad.

This netbook will be marketed in three colors namely black, white, red, and blue in the price range of $ 440.

  • Dual-core processor, better performance
  • Battery durable enough
  • Some of the buttons are smaller, less comfortable when worn

GTX 460, Fermi affordable $ 220 USD paid off with a lot of features, such as DirectX 11 and PhysX, PhysX his performance was quite good. Fermi's famous hot so far been resolved by that newfangled Cyclone cooler.

GTX 460 has a core clock is overclocked from the factory, which defaults to 675Mhz, overclocked to 726Mhz, Memory and Shader remain the same with VGA Referencenya. Support DirectX 11 and PhysX, and using 40nm technology.

MSI GTX 460 1Gb 256bit DDR5 CycloneNice box with a satisfactory package, can be seen there Molex connector to 6-pin, DVI to VGA Analog converter, CD Driver, User Guide, and there is documentation book GTX 460.

6-pin power connector as much as 2 slots, the existence of as many as 2 seed heatpipes, fins made of alumminium, and a 9mm sized fan enough influence on the temperature. It has 2 DVI and 1 HDMI slot, and there is a sinkhole that formed the letters MSI.

Apparently with cooler cyclone, the specter of heat in the GPU Fermi temperature can be solved. For noise, the fan was noisy when the rotation reaches 80%, but the auto settings to play the game the fan speed only reaches 50% - 60%, so very Quite i think, for the temperature and noise.

MSI GTX 460 1Gb 256bit DDR5 Specifications
  • Core Clcok : 726Mhz
  • Memory Clock : 900Mhz
  • Memory Shader : 1451Mhz

Digital Alliance 9800GT 1GB 256Bit DDR3 Green Review. Apparently green is not always perform badly, even power-saving. Only requires a minimum 400W PSU. Cooler is large enough, and do not need 6-pin power connector, a feature of the green version. Let's look at the specs.

Digital Alliance 9800GT 1GB 256bit DDR3 Green Specifications
  • Core Clock: 550 MHz
  • Memory Clock: 1.8GHz (900X 2)
  • Memory Type: GDDR3
  • Memory Size: 1024MB (1GB)
  • Bus Width: 256 bits
Digital Alliance 9800GT 1GB 256Bit DDR3 Green
It has a core clock is lower than the reference VGA, which is usually 600MHz, lowered to 550MHz. The decrease for the VGA core clock is more power efficient. 50MHz difference is not too reduce the performance, after all this green version of its memory clock is higher than other standard VGA, which is 1800MHz, which should in his reference VGA 1500Mhz.

Models such as the graphics card box predecessors, bundle / content box is very minimal, can be seen there are only manual that contains the warranty card and CD drivers, and a cupon gift. Not even a converter DVI to HDMI, or DVI to VGA, perhaps because it already has a slot VGA Analog VGA, so no converter is provided.

Cooling is very impressive, with 30% speed, full load temperature of the graphics card can hold at 57C. This is one of the advantages of this version.

Digital Alliance 9800GT 1GB 256bit DDR3 Green, cheap and worth, although the green version, its performance is less with the GTX460, but the GTX460 is more advanced technology, such as shader models and DirectX support. Perhaps the 9800GT is old school version of the GTX460.

It's cheaper but the performance is not reduced much from other versions. Fan is very quiet, spinning at 30%, but still cold.

Content Boxes / Bundle a very minimal

Overall product is not bad!

Review Nokia C7, Affordable Version of N8

Posted by tottx 0 comments
NOKIA C7 is expected as an affordable version of the N8 because of its smaller, some features that carried even lower, and the price is cheaper than the N8.

The first impression of concern is the touch screen. Unlike the iPhone's touch screen or HTC, which are both not easily scratched because of friction, at least they do not require a protective coating such as screen embedded in the C7. Protective screen that is more easily scratched even make a touch screen Nokia C7 seemed dirty.

In addition to staining the perfect screen protector screen, the whole design is quite impressive that carried C7 elegant product, decent carry everywhere. Not enough for you to just view the pictures, Nokia C7 more tasteless 'kick' if already in hand. Even the weight is still quite mild, only approximately 130 grams, with the form of a long and slender dimensions 117x56x10 millimeters. Moreover, the front display (home screen) on C7 screen can be customized to several types. This means that the user is possible to create up to three customizable home screen with various widgets and shortcut menus on each screen.

At the bottom of the screen there are buttons on / off that flank the menu button. Charger port located at the left side of the phone while on the other side there is a camera shutter button, lock the screen, and sound volume control. Like other Nokia phones, C7 shutdown button located at the top position adjacent to the USB port and handsfree hole.

Mobile phone technology that carries the GSM / UMTS or 3.5 G was carrying two cameras. Front camera with VGA resolution can be used for video calls, while the rear camera is the main camera with a resolution of 8 megapixels. Unlike previous Nokia phone that delivers 3G video call option after you enter the destination phone number in C7 video call can only be done with a number that has been included in the list of contacts. Front camera can also be used to take photographs, only its VGA resolution makes the picture less than satisfactory results although the memory size for one photo VGA only 31 Kb. Therefore, you should use the main camera located behind. Besides being equipped with F2.8/4.3 sized lens, this camera is also equipped with two flash lamps that will ensure the picture looks quite clear, even in the dark though. Resolution is approximately 1832x3264 pixels with a size of one image takes approximately 543 Kb of memory.
