The ASUS GX700- Insanely good or just insane?

The ASUS GX700- Insanely good or just insane?

Sep 5, 2015

Asus unveiled quite a lot of interesting stuff at IFA this year, but the one product that definitely caught everyone’s eye is this one. The GX700 gaming laptop. The world’s first 17″ gaming laptop with Water cooling. Now you might ask (Even I did, when I first saw this) “A laptop with WATER COOLING? HOW? JUST HOW?”. Well, you see that bulky attachment over there? That contains a radiator, reservoir and the pump. You can do some serious overclocking with the K-series skylake processor Asus has put in there (K-series skylake processors come unlocked, and can be overclocked pretty easily), and get little to no heating issues whatsoever. Asus is yet to announce the exact GPU, but it’s an Nvidia GEForce. Obviously, it’s bulkier than other gaming laptops, considering the water cooling and all, but you’ll be able to squeeze way more performance out of this than, say, an Alienware with the same specs. The laptop can be used without an attachment though, which is a boon to students who just want to type and browse with it in school/college. When you’re doing serious overclocking, especially in the tight confines of a laptop body, pushing air over your components using fans just doesn’t cut it. Water cooling systems run tubes of cold water through your PC, taking heat away. Water cooling is quieter and more effective, but you’ll be paying more for it. We’ll be updating this article when we get more info about the laptop itself, but in the meantime, check out The Verge’s hands on...

Tonino Lamborghini is all about the Luxury. That is to be expected, considering the Lamborghini name, and they carry on a family tradition with Iconic Design. Today at CES, they unveiled their latest Android smartphone, called the 88 Tauri. Building on a catalog of unique luxury accessories ranging from wristwatches, to eyewear, and jewelry, to high-tech headphones, 88 Tauri’s design aesthetic emphasizes quality materials in a sleek, distinctive package. The sharp, geometric lines and color combos represent the iconic Lamborghini style, with the famous Bull on both sides of the phone conveying the spirit of the legendary brand. The 88 Tauri offers 3 colors including Black, Gold and Steel Silver. Only 1947 units of each color will be made, in honor of the YOB of the founder, Mr. Tonino Lamborghini. “Mobile phones are such personal devices that someone’s choice of smartphone says a lot about them. 88 Tauri is the latest example of applying the Tonino Lamborghini design philosophy to the accessory we all use the most,” said Gianluca Filippi, CEO Tonino Lamborghini Group. “Uncompromising quality in every detail, down to the stitching, and vibrant color choices help our devices – and users – to stand out from a sea of too-similar phones.” The phone has a Snapdragon 801 clocked at upto 2.3GHZ per core, with 3GB of ram and running android 4.4. With a 5 inch 1080P display, the 3400mah battery is necessary and the company claims 35 hours of talk time on 3G. The camera boasts 20MP with a dual LED flash, and the front facing shooter is a whopping 8 megapixels. Selfies, much? The phone also has 64 GB of internal memory, expandable to 128GB via a Micro-SD card. The 88 Tauri will be available in select stores starting January 5th. The price? Sit down first. Are you sitting down? Well, its $6300. Yep, $6300 for a PHONE.  Do you think the phone is worth the hefty price tag, or is it just a gimmick like most Vertu phones?

Nexus 6 is official!

Nexus 6 is official!

Oct 16, 2014

  Google have announced their latest device, the Nexus 6. Sporting Motorola branding, a 6″ Quad HD display and a 13MP camera with OIS, does this phone solve all the problems we had with last years model? One thing that’s different this year is that there was no physical launch. Google just went ahead and launched it on their website. Sporting a 5.96″ display, the device is certainly bigger than last years flagship. However, the design ensures that it feels comfortable to hold and is ergonomic. Basically a scaled up version of the Moto X 2014, the Nexus 6 has a dimple with the Motorola logo, beside the traditional NEXUS branding. The device also has dual front firing speakers. Speaking of the display, it has a resolution of 2160X1440 (2K), and offers a pixel density of 493PPI. That’s going to have a huge impact on battery life, so it’s good to see that the battery is a hefty 3220 mAh Inside the handset, Google has chosen to use the latest Snapdragon 805 processor running at 2.7 GHz, and has paired it up with 3 GB of RAM. The hardware will allow the 13 megapixel camera to shoot in 4K UHD (2160p) out of the box, and the front camera receives a 2 megapixel sensor for selfies and video calling. Google is also promoting the ‘turbo charge’ technology, and it is stated that a short fifteen minute will provide a further six hours of operation.                 Being a nexus device that has Pure Android, the Nexus 6 will not come with Motorola features like Motorola Assist and Quick Capture, although it will be the first smartphone to run Android Lollipop out of the box.   The camera is really impressive as well. This was one of the woes people had about the Nexus 5, and it seems Google has listened and fixed the issue. The Nexus 6 now comes with a 13 MP shooter, complete with Optical Image stabilization.                   No pricing details for the new phablet were announced, but the handset will be available to pre-order in two weeks time on October 29th, with shipping expected...

The iPhone 6: How is it made?

The iPhone 6: How is it made?

Sep 22, 2014

Have you ever wondered why every product you own (Well, a vast majority anyway) is Made in China? Why not Europe, or the US? Well, it turns out, it’s not because of the Cost persay, but also because of the scalability of operations. Setting up an assembly line in the US could take upto 9 months, when the same can be had in China in a mere two weeks! Now, we come to the iPhone. Apple has a worldwide process for manufacturing the iPhone, which ranges from being Designed in California to Assembled in China, with parts sourced along the way. Sources say the iPhone would cost just $4 more if it were manufactured in the United States, so why does Apple choose China? The following Demographic (Used with permission from CompareCamp) will...
