Dell Latitude Z is thin, light and packed with new features

Dell has a new laptop line – the Latitude Z, which touts thin and light along with its standout feature: wireless charging.

Currently, only 1 model is available, the Z 600, but it is chock full of cool features. For starters, this a 16″ 1600×900 screen and the claim is that at 4.5 pounds, the world’s lightest 16″ – not hard to believe. It is just over half an inch thick (or should we say thin?) at 0.57″ to be exact.

Review: Laptop Lifts – legs for your notebook/laptop

If you are one of the ever-growing number of laptop users, you will have noticed that you continually need to take your laptop off your lap to let your legs cool down or place something like a book or magazine underneath it. Well, laptops are not about to get any cooler, or be made with any kind of heat buffer, because that would just spoil the thin and light sexiness that so many of them sport now.

So what to do? Well there have been numerous ‘lap cooler’ type products for years now, but nothing that really becomes a permanent addition to your laptop (my current fav so far has been the simple Lapworks Laptop Desk). Enter Laptop Lifts, a product that falls into the “why didn’t I think of that?” category.

CES 2009: NVIDIA Ion platform makes for smallest PC

NVIDIA is touting its new Ion platform as they’ve demonstrated how it can be used to make the world’s smallest Vista capable premium PC. By plugging the Ion board into a case that is just slightly larger than the board and adding a hard drive, the PC is complete.

What’s more interesting is that the Ion with its GeForce 9400 (with built-in North- and Southbridges) coupled with an Intel Atom processor can be used to power even smaller netbooks that can push 1080p HD video and 7.1 surround sound audio via HDMI.

This video shot at CES shows how small the board is:

New Apple 13-inch MacBook Air

Here’s the other new Apple laptop refresh, the pricey, but oh so light MacBook Air. The new Airs feature beefier graphics cards like their larger MacBook brethren, in the form of nVidia GeForce 9400M graphics cards with 256 MB of DDR3 SDRAM. They have larger hard drivers (120GB SATA or 128GB solid state), faster CPUs and faster memory.

The new MacBook Air also features Mini DisplayPort instead of the DVI on the previous version. CPU: 1.6 or 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Penryn, 1066MHz front-side bus and 2GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM. All of this and it still weighs in at a featherweight 3lbs. Sweet.
