15-inch Acer Chromebook now on sale for $231

Windows’ reign is slowly but surely coming to an end, and there’s no question that Google’s Chrome operating system is playing a role.

You get a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, an SSD drive and a large 15.6-inch display for a very reasonable list price. But from now until the end of the day on Saturday, April 30, you can buy one for just over $231 with free express shipping. More →

Chrome OS Vs Windows

Is this how Microsoft Windows finally dies?

Is this how Microsoft Windows finally dies?

By on April 25, 2016 at 11:22 AM.

It’s not easy to imagine a world without the Windows operating system. Even in spite of Microsoft’s Windows 8 debacle, the company’s computing platform is still the most widely used desktop operating system by a wide margin. Of course, a decade ago it was equally difficult to envision a world without the Symbian platform, and now there are millions upon millions of smartphone users who don’t even know that an OS called Symbian ever existed.

What goes up must come down. Windows played an integral role in shaping personal and corporate computing, and it continues to play an integral role to this day. But the Windows platform won’t be around forever, and it’s possible that we’re about to witness the first step in a massive sea change. More →

Apple updates Retina Macbook, MacBook Air with faster processors, better battery life

Apple has just launched a major update to its Retina MacBook line that will include faster processors, longer battery life and a new color option. Apple says that the new upgrades “make the thinnest and lightest MacBook even better.” The highlight of the update is an upgrade to Intel’s sixth-generation Core M 1.3-GHz processors that have Turbo Boost speeds of up to 3.1 GHz.

The new laptops also feature faster 1866 MHz memory, deliver an extra hour of battery life, and come in a new rose gold color option like the rose gold option we first saw last fall with the launch of the iPhone 6s. Apple also says that new “Intel HD Graphics 515 deliver up to 25% faster graphics performance, and faster PCIe-based flash storage makes everyday tasks feel snappier — from launching apps to opening files.” More →
