Subscribe to the channel The PC ecosystem is no longer as simple as it once was — first there were desktops, then laptops, then tablets, then all-in-ones. Buying a PC now is more nebulous than it ever was. You could build your very own rig, piece-by-piece, or you could buy one of the many, many pre-fab options out there (or some mixture of the two, of course). And then there’s even more outside-of-the-box options, like Razer’s recently re-introduced Edge (aka “Project Fiona”), which occupies a space all its own. Part laptop, part tablet, part home console, and part portable console, the Razer Edge is the fruition of Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan’s dream to create a “true” portable PC gaming machine. And weighing in at just two pounds, the Edge is dramatically lighter than Razer’s other portable gaming machine, the Blade (which clocks in at a whopping 6.6 lbs.), making it the company’s first actually portable game console. Keeping those Blade comparisons rolling, the base level Edge at 9 features a slight step down from the Blade’s Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor to a 1.7GHz Intel’s Core i5 (the Edge Pro at 99 boosts that CPU to a 1.9GHz Ivy Bridge i7, more closely matching the far costlier Blade). Thankfully, the Edge’s GPU is not only discreet, but also powerful and (thankfully) not fragmented between the two models: an NVIDIA GT640M LE powers the graphics on both, while 4GB or 8GB (respectively) of DDR3 RAM keeps it all running smoothly. The base model Edge holds 64GB of …

The Samsung Series 9 debuted at an odd time, before “Ultrabook” was a buzz word, and when a 2.8-pound laptop was novel enough to warrant a 49 price tag. A year later, it returns at an even more pivotal moment: Ultrabooks are cropping up by the dozens, and while their specs are similar to what the original Series 9 had to offer, they cost hundreds less. So with that as the backdrop, Samsung just announced a pair of slimmed-down, redesigned Series 9 laptops: a 13-inch remake, priced at 99 and up, and a new 15-inch form number that will cost 99-plus when the two go on sale next month. Though consumers are likely to draw comparisons between that 2.5-pound 13-incher and the umpteen other ultraportables hitting the market, Samsung isn’t positioning the Series 9 laptops as Ultrabooks, but rather, premium, top-tier machines. Still, for something that’s not an Ultrabook, the brothers Series 9 certainly look the part: both pack Core i5 processors, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSDs, six-hour batteries and backlit keyboards — Ultrabook-like specs if ever we’ve heard them. Even the 15-inch model is missing an optical drive, and isn’t much larger than the last-gen Series 9.

www.netbooknews.com Asus has come out with the eee Pad transformer an Android-powered eee Pad Transformer snaps into a special dock to become a laptop. The eee Pad Transformer is a pretty decent tablet to start; a half-inch-thick, 10.1-inch NVIDIA Tegra 2-powered unit that’s going to eventually run Google’s Android Honeycomb OS, although the early demo unit I saw was running Android 2.2 “Froyo.” Like Asus’ other eee Pads, the Transformer is full of custom software. There’s a custom e-mail app, a big-screen calendar app, a custom music app with DLNA sharing and streaming, MyZine and a few ASUS applications that help you access personal information like your media or calendar. What makes us pay attention to this device is the fact that it transforms.The big deal here, of course, is the transformation. The Transformer is a half-inch-thick tablet with a metal back the transformation occurs when there is a metal snap to physically attach a keyboard so you can close it to look like a laptop. Its a seamless transformation. Once in laptop mode its a netbook with a touch screen and the keyboard has USB ports to attach a mouse if you don’t want to use the build in trackpad. So far you can’t use multitouch gestures when in this mode but the bottom keyboard part comes with a battery that should give the unit a total of 16 hours of battery life. The Transformer feels like a laptop and when you compare it to the Atrix, which is also a device which transforms into a laptop. But what …
