eMachines Acer EMD250 NetBook

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: December 3, 2009

Aside from Gateway, Acer also owns the eMachines brand for low-end market and they've re-packaged the Acer Aspire One D250 into the eMachines Acer EMD250 NetBook. The netbook specs are somewhat standard and does not offer anything new or interesting. Perhaps Acer decided to re-paint the D250 with another of its brand just to have an offering for that line (same thing they always do with their Gateway brand). eMachines EMD250 NetBook 10.1" display screen @ 1024x600 pxiels Intel Atom N270 @ 1.6GHz 1GB DDR2 RAM 160GB HDD 1.3MP webcam WiFi 802.11 b/g Card Reader 3-cell battery (5200 mAh, 2.5…

HP wins our Best Netbook-Maker Survey

Relevance: 94%      Posted on: August 10, 2009

We did a survey on the best netbook-maker a couple of weeks back and I thought it's time to share the results of that survey (there were over 1,000 votes sent in). Not surprisingly, HP came out the winner of the poll. At 25% of the votes, HP took the top spot. It's followed by Acer at 18%, then Asus at 14%. Dell, Sony and Toshiba are tied at 8% while MSI was surprisingly behind at 7% and Lenovo at 6%. The remaining 6% were shared by Neo, Red Fox, Gateway, Gigabyte, Qube, Astone and Minix. With the HP Mini…

Poll: Which HDD brand do you use?

Relevance: 88%      Posted on: April 23, 2010

Had a meeting with a rep of one of the HDD manufacturers a few weeks back and I asked how much the market share of the top brands in the Philippines. I thought it's better if I'd ask my readers here. Whether you have a netbook, laptop, desktop PC or an external drive, please chime in and tell us which brand do you use. So far, I can remember of just 4: Hitachi Toshiba Seagate Western Digital Samsung Others I've also added the poll on the sidebar so you can take your pick or leave a comment below. I personally…

Why no Apple Netbook?

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: October 16, 2008

One of the things that people expected from Apple during the recent announcement was a netbook. A mini Macbook Air would have been a game-changer in the netbook wars. It never came out. Steve Jobs himself, when asked about netbooks, said "that's a nascent market that's just getting started." On the other hand, I have some idea why Apple hasn't joined the netbook market. An Apple Netbook will ultimately kill the Macbook Air. The netbook will become the lightest Apple laptop that will diffuse the attractiveness of the Macbook Air -- small and light. The netbook will naturally have an…

Are you going to miss the Ovi brand?

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: May 18, 2011

So Nokia says it is completely dropping the Ovi brand and will go back to using the old Nokia nomenclature. As such Ovi will be re-labeled as Nokia Services. I was there in Singapore at the Nokia Connections back in 2007 when they first revealed the Ovi brand to encompass all internet-based services of Nokia. In a way, that was the beginning of the company's slow transformation from just a hardware manufacturer to an internet service company. OVI is a unification of Nokia's Internet services which covers music, games and maps, among others. A new user interface will be rolled…

Poll: Is the laptop vs. netbook battle shifting?

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: April 16, 2011

The year 2011 has seen so many tablets invading the market. It seems like the golden age of netbooks has come and gone and tablets have replaced it as the preferred portable computing device. Still, despite the growing popularity of tablets, I think a significant percentage of the consuming public still prefer netbooks (or, due to lack of budget, are still stuck with their old netbooks). As such, we're seeing netbooks being sold at under Php15k (or 30-50% cheaper than what they used to be). So is the "laptop vs. netbook" battle shifting to "netbook vs. tablet"? For people who…

Toshiba netbook with Tegra 250 & Android 2.1

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: November 29, 2010

Aside from the dual-screen Libretto that I see a lot in stores, this one Toshiba netbook I saw was a rarity since it's running on an NVidia Tegra 250 processor and Android 2.1 OS. I could not make out the most of it but the the specs says 10.1" screen, 1.0GHz Tegra 250 CPU, 512MB RAM, 16GB Flash storage and Android 2.1 OS. The price converts to about Php23,000. It's an interesting netbook and something I hope would eventually land in the Philippines. Did bought it since the keyboard layout is in Japanese. Incidentally, right after I landed in Manila

Is the Android OS bigger than the brand?

Relevance: 82%      Posted on: May 25, 2011

For the last two years, I've bought over half a dozen smartphones running Android OS and realized they came from different handset brands -- Samsung, Sony-Ericsson, HTC and just recently LG (the Optimus 2X, my very first LG phone ever). One thing came to mind -- has Android grown so big it's now even bigger than the handset brand? What I mean is that consumers will start trusting and/or buying devices not primarily because of the brand but because it's running on Android. My personal experience might be an isolated case but I'd like to hear what others think. Is

Relevance: 81%      Posted on: October 9, 2008

This came in today in the package, the only tablet PC in the netbook market -- the Gigabyte M912. Earlier reported back in July and spotted last month during the Intel Atom launch, check out the unboxing pics after the jump. The Gigabyte M912 came with a stylus though it's not attached to the laptop with a string or anything (unlike the HP tablets I've used before).

Samsung NC10 Netbook

Relevance: 80%      Posted on: September 20, 2008

The big-named brands are catching up with the bandwagon and this time, it's Samsung that's just came out with their own netbook -- the 10-inch Samsung NC10. At least they know that the 7-inch and 9-inch netbook market has already been won by Asus and friends. The 10-inch netbook though is still a battle to be won and the Samsung NC10 looks like a good contender. Has 10.2" display screen (1024x600) running an Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 80-160GB HDD, 1.3MP webcam, memory card reader, WiFi 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth. Totes a 6-cell battery that could last up to…
