Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook and Series 3 Chromebox – lightweight web centric devices for cloud computing

By Databazaar Blog

Samsung_Series_5_550

Samsung’s Series 5 550 Chromebook and Chromebox are based on Google’s Chrome OS which is a web-based operating system. The Chrome OS is all about connectivity and cloud computing with the Chrome Browser taking centre stage.

The Chromebook has been touted as the “Always New” computer. It boots up within an amazing 7 seconds and wakes up from sleep mode within a second and instantly resumes where you left off. Web pages get loaded up really quickly too. Multiple layers of security have been built into the Chromebook so you don’t need to purchase anti-virus software. There are a whole lot of web apps that will meet your everyday computing needs and all your files get stored on the cloud. The 4 GB RAM and Intel Celeron processor handle multi-tasking pretty well so opening multiple tabs on the Chrome browser will not bog down the device. The 16 GB solid state drive can be accessed really fast and you can store a limited amount of files on it – the rest will be on the cloud. All the apps that you need are available online.

Besides being sleek and lightweight, the Chromebook has a 12.1” LED WXGA screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and graphics powered by an integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 card. The two USB 2.0 ports are handy to connect USB storage devices. It also has a 4-in-1 memory card slot. The Chromebook can work for up to 6 hours on battery power.

The Chromebox is a monitor-less desktop device that has pretty much the same configuration as the Chromebook except that it has six USB ports, a DVI port and two Display ports.

If you are mainly a web apps user, who is not fussy about storing data on the cloud and have a very reliable internet connection, you should check out the Chromebook and Chromebox.

Summary

The Chromebook and the Chromebox are ideal for small businesses that can take advantage of cloud computing, and users who primarily use web apps.

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook – Powerful, lightweight and incredibly slim

By Databazaar Blog

Dell_XPS_13

Dell’s XPS 13 Ultrabook is powerful, lightweight and incredibly slim. You have a choice of 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processors with Turbo Boost. With the machined aluminum top cover, carbon fiber composite base and durable bright display made of Bonded Corning® Gorilla® glass, it’s not just slim and lightweight; it’s also tough and very sleek. The XPS 13 comes with Intel Smart Connect technology plus Bluetooth 3.0, so you’re virtually always connected.

With Intel’s Rapid Start Technology and a solid state drive, the XPS 13 Ultrabook takes about 8 seconds to boot up and turns on from sleep mode in a second. The sleep mode is great for saving power and since it comes up so quickly when it turns on, you don’t have to wait around. The keyboard is comfortable to use and the bright LED backlight is great when you are working in dim lighting.

Dell has thrown in productivity software like Adobe® Reader, Microsoft® Office Starter, WebCam Central, Skype™ with H.264, Skyhook, Internet Explorer®, Windows Live™ Essentials Wave 4, McAfee Security Center trial, Dell DataSafe and Dell Stage. The Word and Excel in the MS Office Starter have reduced functionality.

Though Dell has included a USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and Mini Display ports, it’s missing an Ethernet port, an HDMI port and memory card slots. You can use USB storage, Dell’s USB Ethernet Adapter and Mini Display Port to VGA/HDMI Adapters to overcome this deficiency.
