Intel introduces faster Celeron chips

After pushing its low-power Pentium M mobile processor and related Centrino platform for the past several weeks, Intel Monday turned its attention to the low end of its desktop processor lineup, releasing two faster Celeron desktop processors.

Running at speeds of 2.4GHz and 2.3GHz, respectively, the new chips are manufactured using a 0.13-micron process and offer support for a 400MHz front-side bus. They also run at a higher clock speed than other Celerons. Prior to the release of the 2.4GHz chip, the fastest available Celeron was the 2.2GHz chip.

The 2.4GHz Celeron is priced at US$127 and the 2.3GHz is priced at $117. Both prices are for 1,000-unit quantities.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
