Intel, AMD, each launch new chips

Both AMD and Intel launched new processors this week, the latter debuting a new 333MHz version of its mobile Celeron processor.

According to Intel, the 333MHz mobile Intel Celeron processor, which features 128KB integrated level 2 cache, is up to 11 per cent faster than the 300MHz mobile Celeron.

"Intel's mobile Celeron processors offer the benefits of low power for long battery life, unique packaging for smaller and lighter systems, and a mobile-friendly thermal design specification which avoids the need for bulky or noisy cooling devices," said Intel Australia general manager, David Bolt, in a statement released by the company.

The mobile Celeron processor is now available in speeds of 266MHz, 300MHz and 333MHz.

Intel has also released new low-voltage versions of the mobile Pentium II and Celeron processors at 266MHz.

AMD this week debuted its new 475MHz AMD K6-2 processor with 3DNow! technology. IBM has already committed to using the new chip in a soon-to-be-released Aptiva PC.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
