New iPad vs. Everything Else

In case you didn't hear, there is a new iPad coming. The new iPad naturally is generating quite the buzz thanks to "the Apple factor" but just how does it stack up against the competition? Engadget takes a look at new tablets from ASUS, Samsung, and Toshiba and shows you what the difference between these tablets is.

You may be thinking, how does that new iPad stack up against the best slates we've seen? Well, you're about to find out. Truth be told, two of these behemoths -- the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity 700 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 -- were just announced, but impressive spec sheets earned them a seat at the table. We'll cut out the jabbering and get right down to business. Follow us down past the break for a breakdown of features before you decide which tablet will soon be yours.

HardwareHeaven at CeBIT

HardwareHeaven is at CeBIT in Hannover Germany and they're bringing us coverage on what has been released since CES.  CeBIT is a great show and it's interesting what companies are launching in Europe that wasn't quite ready for Las Vegas in January.  Good stuff for sure.

Over at Sapphire we get to see one of the first, real, custom 7800's as well as their first Vapor chamber cooler... oh and a matter of two 7900 series cards with dual BIOS (2nd overclocked) and well into double figures of memory between them. Any guesses how much is on each card?

Ivy Bridge Preview: Core i7 3770K

AnandTech has a look at the new Core i7 3770K and finds out that this new chip from Intel has a very hefty GPU inside.  The embedded graphics is handled with the Intel HD 4000 series and it looks pretty decent as it can play Skyrim.  What amazes me, is that this chip is a mere 77W.





Mini RAM Roundup

With the price of RAM dropping like it has, it is a great time to grab some extra RAM.  Take a look at a few of the kits available today.

Office 15 Information

The Verge has posted up some screenshots of the upcoming Office 15 suite from Microsoft.  This new version looks pretty minimalistic and it looks like very touch-screen oriented.  This is not a bad idea as Windows 8 looks very touch-screen oriented anyway and combined with this suite, you have a very complete and product Windows 8 phone, tablet and PC experience. 

A small number of third-party partners, OEMs, and businesses have access to the code, but Microsoft is staying mum on the exact features of its next release. We previously took a closer look at Office 15 with detailed screenshots of its new Metro inspired interface, showing off the clean and simple look for the future of Office.

It's All Cool

As we wrap up the hardware news for today, we've got a collection of cooling products to share.  As chilly as it is in Alberta, my mind is not on cooling so much these days, but let's face it - we don't all live in the arctic.
