Build Yours at www.gentechpc.com (latest model GT780DX with nVidia GTX570M) The MSI GT780R just came in! We were excited to open the box and try out the unit. This is one of the few laptops we have seen that has a matte screen in a long time and we were happy to see the Dynaudio and dual exhaust features be carried over from the MSI GT683R as they were both features we really liked on the 15″ version of this laptop. The Geforce GTX560M is a very capable gpu and the Intel Core i7 2630QM is a extremely strong mobile processor. Top it off with 1TB of HDD and 16GB of RAM and you really have a fully loaded package here for a good price. The illuminated keyboard gives you an extra layer of customization and personalization and a good alternative to more expensive Alienware laptops if you really wanted that color led lit keyboard. Infact the Steelseries keyboard is better than that you can find on Alienware so this is a step forward. Well just check out the video for all the other information you may want, remember you can find more videos posted to the product page @ GentechPC.com and if you have more questions post here on our video or go visit our forums.
ThinkPad X Series brings you a new version of the world’s best-selling ultraportable laptop.

You also get 9 to 14 hours of battery life with a standard or high-capacity battery and as much as 23 hours using our external battery pack.
Tobii Technology has put together a conceptual prototype laptop with integrated eye control in partnership with Lenovo. Using your eyes to control a PC certainly sounds intriguing, just glance at an icon or gadget to activate it. You can zoom pictures or maps and automatically centre on the area you are looking at. The screen can auto-dim and brighten when it recognises your eyes to increase battery time. There are all sorts of possibilities. One of the possibilities being PC gaming. You can see an Earth defence game being played in the video, where Eskilsson is targeting and blowing missiles headed for the planet with his eyes.

This is my first attempt at a solar powered laptop. I am using the R-21 solar panel from PowerFilm, two PS-612 lead acid batteries by Power Sonic and one laptop car charger. www.powerfilmsolar.com www.microbattery.com This was just tossed together for something to play with. I will try to post more vids when I have time and the sunshine to make them. Thus far, I would highly recommend the R-28 Panel or larger as it has more amps and would work better in less than ideal conditions, as I have found the R-21 to be just enough in bright sunlight.
Megawhat were at the launch of the new Toshiba NB200, or the UX as it’s known in Japan. An update to their Netbook line up with a full size keyboard, long battery life, Intel Atom processor and a very up market finish Toshiba have kicked it up a notch.
First impressions of my 6-cell battery 11.6″ Acer Aspire One 751 mini-notebook. Impressed with it’s size and weight compared to a 10-inch netbook. Will the Atom Z520 processor be fast enough for daily use?
