Intel hands out awards to best Pentium PCs

Chip maker Intel Corp. has announced the winners of its 2002 Innovative PC awards, which recognizes innovation in best-of-class categories including consumer desktop, business desktop and subnotebook mobile PC category -- just as long as they use an Intel processor.

Acer Inc.'s TravelMate 100 took the prize for best Tablet PC. The device scored high in the ease of use category, as well as for its direct pen input feature and, of course, for its use of Intel's Mobile Pentium III processor.

In the consumer desktop category, US manufacturer Gateway Inc. took the honours with its 700XL system, which is powered by an Intel Pentium 4 processor running at 2.8GHz and comes with a DVD-R drive and 18in flat-panel display. The PC also comes with the option of a five-piece sound system and a total of six USB ports.

"Over the past few years the Innovative PC award program has grown in scope to include more diverse PC platform entries from worldwide participants," said Louis Burns, vice president at Intel's desktop platforms group.

"The Intel Pentium 4, Mobile Pentium 4 and Mobile Pentium III processor-based PCs recognised this year clearly take PC innovation to a new and exciting level," added Burns.

Other winners included IBM's ThinkPad X30 in the mini-notebook mobile PC category, Toshiba's Protege P10 in the full-size notebook mobile PC category and Panasonic's CF-R1 in the subnotebook mobile PC category.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
