Intel expands storage component offering

Intel expanded its line of components for storage products on Monday, announcing a serial ATA controller, an iSCSI storage adapter and a low-voltage Celeron processor.

The new Intel 31244 serial ATA controller can transfer data at 1.5G bits per second (bps) on each of its four ports. The controller, which links a system's motherboard with a hard disk drive, improves performance in NAS (network attached storage) devices and RAID systems, according to an Intel statement.

The Intel PRO/1000 T IP iSCSI adapter is meant for SANs (storage area network). The adapter uses Intel's Xscale processor technology to take over IP (Internet Protocol) and iSCSI tasks from the host processor, which increases throughput in SANs, according to Intel.

Intel also announced a version of its Celeron processor that does not need extensive cooling and can thus be fitted in small storage devices. The 400MHz ULV (ultra low voltage) Celeron processor dissipates 4.1 watts of heat, Intel said.

Available in the first quarter of 2003, the 31244 serial ATA controller will cost US$22 in 10,000-unit quantities and the iSCSI $695 in single units. The ULV Celeron processor at 400MHz is now available for $38 when bought in quantities of 1,000, Intel said.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

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.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

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.
