New Xbox 360 Slim

August 28th, 2014 admin Electronics,Games,Hardware 0

So the all new Xbox 360 came out on June 14th, 2010 during the E3 convention. So does this console require all that hype? According to fan boys all around, it does. It now has a 250GB hard drive which competes with Sony’s PS3 250 GB hard drive. The new slim is a lot smaller and lighter than the old one but that doesn’t mean it over heats as much. So what else does this new console feature? The console comes with a built in WiFi, unlike the previous versions. Unlike the older models, optical audio connector are also built-in, allowing for digital audio and wireless networking without the need for external adapter. The hardware on the new Xbox 360 is still the same, just a whole lot smaller. Another cool feature of the Xbox 360 is that the eject and power on button is now touch sensitive, isn’t that so cool!

So everyone fears this question, does the new slim Xbox 360 have the same red ring of death problem this time? Microsoft has completely removed the red ring of death, but they replaced it with the red circle which is on the AV power box. It works like the RROD but just without the rings. The new slim has bigger fans than the older ones, so less risk of getting a failure. Now you may be wondering if it still is worth getting. I will tell you in on a little secret, even though PS3 has far superior graphics on exclusive games, most multi-platform games, Xbox 360 has much better and sharper graphics. Well I hope this little blog about Xbox 360 helps you buy the console and Microsoft earning a little more cash even though I won’t be getting anything.

Sony PlayStation 3

August 28th, 2014 admin Electronics,Games,Hardware 0

Playstation 3 has been released in North America on November, 17th 2006. Even though the hardware inside never changed, the new PlayStation 3′s have a sleek and slim design. Also the newer PlayStation 3 models have a larger hard drive of either 120GB or 250 GB. If you want the full specs you should visit Cnet. Unlike the older Xbox 360′s the PS3 is wifi enabled and you can play online for free. Also PS3 can play blue-ray DVD and has an HDMI port. If you have a Sony Bravia you can use the remote to control your PS3 because the TV and PS3 will sync if connected through an HDMI cable.

Now that you have decided you want to buy a PlayStation 3, you are stuck on deciding to buy the older fat version or the newer slimmer versions. The real difference between these two are obviously the size. The slim also can be synced with Sony Bravia, while the older versions cant. Many people prefer the older (fatter) model because you don’t need a stand to make it stand up vertical and also you can download another OS such as linux. Also the older version had a glossy black finish. If you want to save money on your electric bill, I would go with the slim because it uses a lot less power to run. If you want to go to a friends house and hook it up to his new 72 inch TV, you definitely want the smaller one because of easier portability. For those of you tech savvy people PS3 Slim streams Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. Some of the older versions can play old ps2 games, but come on if you have a PS3 you should be playing PS3 games. For those who look into details, the newer slim don’t have the touch button to turn on, now you actually have to press the button.

The PS3 is now a retail value of  $299.99 for the 120 GB system and $349.99 for the 250 GB system. The 120GB is enough for games and movies and also you can add your own extended hard drive, so you don’t have to worry about space, so there is no need to spend an extra 50 bucks when you can use that money to buy another game. I hope this little blog about the PS3 will help you on your next purchase of a PS3.

Gateway NV7915u

Gateway NV7915u is probably the cheapest 17.3 inch laptop out there. MSRP for this computer is only 649.99. So is this laptop the real deal, or a bust? The laptop has 4GB of ram, which is more than enough for any task, especially if you want to multitask. This is probably the best high powered computer for college or for any student. The laptop has 4GB of ram which is enough for any task, but you can also extend it to 8GB. If you think that is enough, well its not. The laptop consists of Intel Core i3 processor 330M. That processor is the new line of processors brought out by Intel. The computer has 4 USB slots and a 500GB hard drive. If you are going away to college, you can talk to your loved ones through the integrated web cam. If you want more info go check the website for rest of the specs.

Those are the specs on the site, but I own this laptop and I don’t think I can find one for a better price. The computer is super fast, and I can do almost anything. I am a student, so that means I have Microsoft words up, while doing research on Firefox, and meanwhile listening to music on iTunes. The computer does not lag, and the web cam is perfect to chat with my friends. The 500GB hard drive is enough for anything, I download and watch movies and there is a lot of space left.

The only down side with this computer is the graphics. The graphics for game is horrible, but that really isn’t bad because this computer wasn’t meant for gaming, and you can always change your graphics card. Another con to this computer is its battery life, on the site it says it can stay for 3 hours and 50 minutes, but I personally tested it and only stays for around 3 hours. This laptop is the real deal and not only because of the specs, but also cause of the personal experience. I would really recommend this laptop to anyone who wants a very good laptop for a very low price.

Gateway GT5468

Are you looking for a low cost computer? I got the perfect computer for you. The computer is Gateway GT5468. This computer is great for multi-tasking. Many of us are looking for low cost computers but end up buying something for cheap, and it is really bad.

This computer is only 750 USD. This computer has a Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160, 1.8 GHz processor. It has 2 GB ram installed which is perfect for multi-tasking. One con about this computer is, its graphics are not the best. If you want a gaming computer I suggest you get a computer with more muscle in it. Except for the graphics the computer is really well build. It even has a 15 in 1 card reader.

There are 6 high speed USB slot, and there is 2 in the front, so you dont need to break you back trying to reach the back. If you want more opinions about the computer and the total specification you can go to the website.
