Intel bumps up Mobile Pentium 4-M clock speed

Intel increased the top speed of its Mobile Pentium 4-M processor and added two new Mobile Celeron processors to its lineup Wednesday.

The Mobile Pentium 4-M now comes in a 2.5GHz version, a bump up from the previous clock speed leader, the 2.4GHz processor. The Mobile Pentium 4-M was Intel's primary chip for notebooks until the launch of the Pentium M in March.

Desktop replacement notebooks will use the Mobile Pentium 4-M, which is a modified version of the Pentium 4 desktop processor. The Pentium M is a new processor design that incorporates performance features in the Pentium 4 with some low-power features found in the Pentium III, and is Intel's primary chip for thin-and-light and ultraportable notebooks.

The new Mobile Pentium 4-M is priced at US$562 in 1,000-unit quantities. The new Mobile Celerons for the low end of the notebook market are priced at $149 for the 2.4GHz version and $107 for the 1.26GHz version, both in quantities of 1,000 units.

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.)

Brother PT-P750W

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.
