Celerons as cheap as chips

The price cuts follow the launch last week of the new 533MHz Celeron chip, which was introduced at $US167, a price that has not changed.

The 500MHz Celeron dropped 10 per cent in price, to $128. The 466MHz and 433MHz versions each dropped 5 per cent, to $89 and $69, respectively, Intel said. The price of the 400MHz Celeron remained unchanged, at $64.

All prices are for 1000-unit quantities. Intel said the price cuts, which were effective January 9, are part of its normal pricing activity.

Intel's Celeron processors are aimed at the sub-$1200 PC category, where analysts say price and clock speed are among buyers' top concerns. Its Pentium II and Pentium III chips are aimed at more expensive systems.

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
