Sony is adding a bit of flair to its PS3 Slim by offering the gaming console in white and upping the console’s on-board storage. Launching in Japan on July 29th, the PS3 Slim will be available in both 160Gb and 320GB capacities — up from the previous 120GB and 250GB sizes. The console will also be offered in the traditional black and the new Classic White with matching white controller. Pricing is set in the Japanese Yen with the 160GB retailing for ¥29,980 (USD$340) and the 320GB version for ¥34,980 (USD$400). Thus far, the launch is limited to Japan; but, hopefully, we will see these models come stateside in time for the holiday shopping season. More →
Say hello to the Seagate Savvio, a 600GB enterprise HDD that doubles the capacity of current enterprise drives and sports a rocking 10,000 RPM and a 2 million hour MTBF. All this raw, reliable spinning power is packed into a diminutive 2.5 inch frame which lowers rack space requirements and, when combined with the drive’s improved power efficiency and data protection, will make many a system admin happy.

Lovers of all things tech and trim, rejoice as Apple has updated its svelte MacBook Air. A $300 price drop puts the new budget model MacBook Air at $1,499 while still coming in with a relatively impressive 1.86GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 9400M graphics card and 120GB HDD. Also new is a more “high end” MBA which starts off with the same amount of RAM and graphics card except the processor clocks in at 2.13GHz and in lieu of spinning hard-disk drive you get a 128GB SSD. It will retail for $1,799. Yeah you read right; that’s a $700 drop in price. Congrats to Apple on maintaining that ridiculous margin for as long as it did.
