Acer’s New Aspire All-In-One Desktop Model Hits Shelves in May
7 Apr 2011 - By Omar Mariño

I’m not a big fan of all-in-one desktop PCs. For the most part, they are underpowered and loaded with unnecessary bloatware, hampered by limited functionality, and poorly designed. Acer has set out to put a stop to that with their new Aspire Z5761. It is a 23 inch high definition model that packs everything up into a neat, well-designed chassis for roughly $1,300.

Apple Releases iPad 2 Specifications
3 Mar 2011 - By Omar Mariño

Apple just recently released the specifications of its next generation iPad device (named the iPad 2). In comparison to the current version of the iPad the iPad 2 is actually quite an upgrade. So what’s different about this version?

Yes, it will be thinner and lighter but the outside specs aren’t really all that appealing. It’s the internals that will really make the difference.

For starters the iPad 2 will be running on a 1GHz dual core processor (instead of a single core). There will be a front-facing VGA camera presumably for FaceTime video conferencing or just snapping glamour shots of yourself. There will also be a 720p rear camera as well which is something the first generation iPad should have had but didn’t.

The iPad 2 will also come equipped with a gyroscope in addition to the traditional accelerometer which might open up the way for some truly interesting applications (or lead to a bunch of exploitive games clogging the App Store).

In addition, there will be three versions of the iPad 2 ready to overtake the world upon release. Of course you’ll be able to snap up the AT&T version but Verizon will also have its own model. In addition, if you want to go the “cheap” route, there will be a WiFi only model as well.

Other than that, the two will be pretty much the same. Stay tuned for more updates.
