Chinese Launch Sixty Five Dollar Laptop


Finding a laptop anywhere in the $300-$400 price range is a real achievement, so it’s hard to believe you can have one for only $65.

But the Chinese from Creation Tech have really pulled it off. Their CTEB7G laptop retails for $65, but is far from being among the most competitive machines on the market. It features a 7-inch, 800×600 pixel display, a weak 33 Mhz processor, 128 Mb of RAM and just 2 Gb of flash memory, as storage. The CTEB7G does have WIFI, 3 USB ports and runs Windows CE.

This barebone laptop could be useful if you;re only thinking of using it to run word and occasionally open a web page, but don’t even think it’s capable of running advanced applications like Adobe Photoshop, for example.

Origin Eon18 Gaming Laptop Looks Promissing


Featuring an impressive design and even more impressive specifications, the Origin Eon18 gaming laptop plans to give competitors, like Alienware, a run for their money.

If the Origin name doesn’t ring any bells, you should know it’s a company founded six years ago by six former Alienware executives. When Dell took over the company they decided to leave and start their own company, where they could design the same gaming systems Alienware used to.

Their newest creation, the Eon 18 gaming laptop features a full HD resolution 18.4 widescreen display, dual NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M GPUs and an Intel Core i7 processor. It allegedly handles high-quality gaming animations beautifuly, but it also eats through the battery in less than 45 minutes, so I’d make sure there’s a power outlet nearby, before starting a gaming session.

The Origin Eon18 gaming laptop will be available soon, for a starting price of $2,070. Full specs and features after the jump.

HP Delivers First USB 3.0 Laptops


USB 3.0 is the next big thing in data transfer technology right now and computer manufacturers are stepping over each other to deliver machines with built in USB 3.0 technology.

HP has apparently won the  race and managed to sell the first laptops with implemented USB 3.0 technology. The HP Envy 15 (if you opt for the ATI 5830 graphics and  quad-core i7 processor version) and the Elitebooks 8540p and 8540w have built in USB 3.0 and allow data transfers 10 times faster than before (provided you connect to another USB 3.0 device).

USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, so you’ll be able to connect to older equipment, only it won’t works as well.
