Apple - Leading The Tablet market

Labels:

Tablets have been talked about a lot lately,
After apple released the iPad a revolution has started of the most popular Hp Is set to release it’s slate, Samsung has come up with the Galaxy and Google is almost ready to release it’s own Android or Chrome OS based Tablet,
I can defiantly see how there can be a war between iOS and Android brewing but how are windows based Tablets going to compete they don’t run many apps specifically designed for tablets in comparison to Android or iOS based Tablets though they can be quite good for business with there capability’s such as inking that the iPad doesn’t support to it’s maximum potential at this point.
You have seen the chart I posted up for a comparison of the iTouch to the iPad but take a look at this chart a comparison between the iPad and Hp Slate, iPad has a few threats to the Hp Slate with the 802.11a/b/g/n, a larger 9.7” 1024 * 768 screen compared to the Hp’s 8.9” 1024 * 600, up to 10 hours battery life compared to Hp’s 5 hours, and the iPad is cheaper and what i believe the biggest threat is that the iPad has so many more great apps is much more useful for the standard person and not only can the iPad run iOS but it can now run Windows or Mac OS with the Citrix Receiver application.
I have ignored a lot of the hardware comparisons due to the fact that with tablets it’s not about hardware as much as it is about software because you can have and iPad run on 256 MB DRAM and the Hp Slate run on 1Gb DDR2 but in the end the speed relays back to the OS the iOS doesn’t need 1Gb to run at a great fast speed because it doesn’t need to run as many processors and applications that windows needs to run and you can guarantee the iPad is going to run faster than the HP Slate due to this fact.
Below the chart from Engadget I have added a video of the proposed Google Tablet UI with Google Chrome OS.

New case NZXT-PHANTOM

Labels:

 

This new case looks just great,

NZXT hasn’t included a removable motherboard tray but they defiantly made up for that by adding great cable management options with the 1” gab between the side panel and the motherboard tray and long holes for running all your cables through,

My favourite thing about this case is that NZXT made it great for working with water cooling they have added holes on the interior for running your tubes through and they have left enough room under the top bezel to fit a duel radiator.

I love the futuristic look to the new case, MNPC said it looked like something Alienware would release but I think it’s just a great improvement on the NZXT Lexa S, I would love to see what mods MNPC could do to this case I think it would look absolutely great with 2 windows installed between the side perforated fan plates.

This case can holds 7 SSD or HHD that’s just amazing it’s a great case for serving media across your network even better case for gaming, I especially love the front bezel looks like a design I came up with a while ago for a case I was planning on making but now scrap that idea I'm just going to go for a PHANTOM.

The case sounded fairly quiet though it was running on a hacked power supply and likely at 100% if i was to get this case I would likely run it on water cooling anyway.

So I would say defiantly if your a gamer or looking to great a new build have a look at the NZXT Phantom.
