pana-s9clamshell-01

This isn’t a briefcase-sized laptop. Instead, it’s a much smaller 12.1-inch notebook that tips the scales at a mere three pounds.

And therein lies the Waveface concepts from the good people at Asus. Yes, they’re well ensconced in the PC market with their motherboards, notebooks, netbooks, and so on, but they also recognize the importance of looking to the future.

msi-sketchbook-01

On the surface the MSI Sketch Book may look like yet another iPad tablet clone, but hidden deep inside is something quite different. Shown for the first time ever at Computex Taipei 2010, the Sketch Book is a device inching towards what we hoped the Microsoft Courier would bring us; a little bit of dual screen love anyone?

spinpointmp4.200

Want a bigger hard drive for your laptop, but you don’t want to sacrifice anything in performance? It seems that Samsung is pushing the envelope just a little further with the newly revealed Spinpoint MP4. This 2.5-inch hard drive sounds pretty sweet. For starters, it doesn’t stick to the conventional 5400rpm speed that you normally find in 2.5-inch notebook drives. Instead, it gives you 7200rpm of speed, putting it in line with the 3.5-inchers on the market. That means you’ll get at your data faster and more efficiently.
