Apple Unveils new MacBook Pro Core i5 this Month



Intel has officially unveiled it’s new Core i5 CPUs at the CES 2010.  MacRumors gathered reports about an email Intel sent out to one of their retail services leaking Core i5 MacBook Pro laptops.  According to the email, Intel is offering January Prize Draw where participants can win on of two MacBook Pro with new Intel Core i5 CPU systems.

This would lead to the conclusion that Apple is unveiling new MacBook Pro with Core i5 processors this month.  If this email/rumor is really unveiling the Apple Tablet at the end of the month, then I would think Apple is unveiling the new MacBook Pro before that.

Intel Announced it’s new Wireless Display Technology at CES



Intel announced it’s new Wireless Display Technology during his keynote speech at the CES 2010.  Intel’s Wireless Display (WiDi) connects Intel Core series CPU bearing laptop to HDTV via Wi-Fi and stream audio-video content.  WiDi technology can be used with Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processors and Intel Core i7-620M.  Intel’s WiDi enabling devices will go on sale starting January 17 at Best Buy for U.S. consumers.

Intel’s new WiDi Technology involves using Intel Core i7-620M, Core i3 or Core i5 based laptop with WiDi enabling adapter box for streaming the audio-video content from laptop to HDTV.  Your television must have A/V output or HDMI port.  The fully rendered display frames are captured and then sent as compressed video and audio to an adapter box via Wi-Fi Direct.

The user will have to use 2010 announced Intel processors based laptop and Windows 7 (64-bit) will require 4GB RAM.  Also, one has to buy Intel Wireless Display supporting Adapter Box separately. This means no more hassle with cables, connectors and configuring a system to HDTV.

Netgear debuted the first Wi-Di enabled device at the CES.  Dubbed as Push2TV, this adapter box needs to be hooked with TV with A/V output or HDMI port. Netgear says that Push2TV will reduce the wireless bandwidth by up to 50 percent when compared with other WiDi enabling solutions.

In future, we may expect to see Intel WiDi enabled HDTVs and other TVs to be used with laptops and tablets.

Toshiba Portege T110 and T130 notebooks


Toshiba has just introduced two more notebooks under its Portege stable, known as the Portege T110 and T130. These notebooks will be powered by Intel’s CULV chips inside, capable of touching a phenomenal 11 hours of battery life. While the T110 will run on an Intel Pentium SU2700 processor, the T130 is more beefy with its Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Looks like the basic notebook to purchase if you’re currently on the lookout for one.
