Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook gets updated!

Acer's Haswell update for the particularly thin Aspire S7 comes simultaneously with a change of display technology. In addition, Acer S7 is a one of the best Ultra books available in the market. Acer updated its top Ultra book, in addition to the CPU upgrade to a Core i7 - 4500U, which improves the battery life of the notebook by 30 percent according to Acer; there is also a new IPS panel. Acer now installed a very high resolution display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels at a screen diagonal of 13 inches. Acer also promises that the fan design also very now quieter. Acer improves the IPS display of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels Does not change the rest of the equipment. It remains in fast RAID 0 SSD systems with 256 GB of memory, 8 GB of RAM and the weight of 1.3 kg. There is still a change in the S7. The 11- inch model of the laptop has been discontinued. There will be no more Haswell update for this model. It was characterized by a very thin and light design. Acer's new Aspire S7 with 13 -inch display will come on the market in November 2013. It is equipped with the same 8.1 and Windows will have a starting price of 1,600 Euros. So it's slightly more expensive than the first versions of the Aspire S7. Let us hope the extra costs of few hundred Euros and includes a better service.

Sony Vaio Pro 11

The Sony Vaio Pro 11 notebook with Intel's Haswell CPU has many good features. Nearly 4 years after the Vaio X, a lightweight netbook with Atom processor lame, Sony has now introduced the Vaio Ultra Pro 11, which is a book that is similar to light and compact as the old netbook. The difference is Vaio Pro 11 is one of the Ultrabooks. It own faster Haswell processor in the housing with 4 GB RAM and 128 GB SSD holds. The whole thing packs into a Sony only 866 grams and 18.5 mm thin lightweight Ultrabook casing with an 11.6-inch display with full HD. Unfortunately, the display reflects strong but with touch controlled touch with your ten fingers. With the high resolution, the meeting of the controls on the desktop, however, is very difficult. It is recommended to adjust the DPI settings. The Windows 8 gestures are supported on the touchpad. The user can switch between applications so also here. However, this leads to frequent malfunctions. Who attaches at the edge of a mouse movement and wants to move the mouse triggers the gesture, but not a mouse. Sony Vaio Pro offers pleasant additional functions that are not obvious in light notebooks. The keyboard is illuminated, for example, and on the bottom is a connector for a spare battery available. Without the additional battery power is sufficient for light work for about 6-7 hours scarce. Under high load, this reduces to 2 hours. A docking station does not support the Sony Vaio Pro. The SDXC card slot is not immediately visible. Sony has incorporated it under the touchpad. Since early 2013, Sony is the only manufacturer to equip nearly all classes of devices with NFC. Also the Vaio Pro has the interface. This makes many things possible, for example, a comfortable Bluetooth speaker pair by this kind is held to the touchpad. With USB 3.0, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0, the notebook is also equipped with modern facilities. Even our low energy mouse we were able to run without the dongle.

Business users may miss but a native VGA connector for presentations. An adapter is provided. The network jack is missing in the Vaio Pro also. Again, help from an adapter. This acts as a wireless router. The router configures itself automatically even on request. On-the-go use, the router even offers multiple SSIDs. For general use the Vaio Pro is fast enough. The SSD in the new m.2 format is pretty lame when writing. Who has a fast USB 3.0 flash drive, have to wait for the SSD with larger data transfers. With its low weight and modern equipment to Sony Vaio 11 Pro is very good for users in transit. The router is a clever idea. Actually, we only miss a cellular modem and the reflective touch screen does not match the claim of a notebook for professionals. The case is actually very well made too flexible in some places. The user can press around the touchpad buttons from below. Sony also installed a very old version of Java with numerous dangerous security vulnerabilities. The drivers are also not as stable as we would wish it. If you invest a bit of work, despite the weaknesses get a good notebook that weighs only a little more than a tablet with keyboard.

HP refreshes its PC before summer

No revolution in the range of spring-summer catalog PC from HP. The American manufacturer has just announced the update of a portion of its catalog of laptops. These are specifically the HP Pavilion G6 and G7 are concerned with this refresh.

The entry-level builder wins a new chassis so over worked and found its keypad a time abandoned. Amongst other coquetry HP endows both models of Altec Lansing speakers, a USB 3.0 port and an HDMI 1.4.
