Tekkie Tekkie Muna (let me delay you from your daily task, may mabuti akong balita na wagas), students you’ve got to read this!
A group of computer enthusiasts is bringing to your colleges and universities the Campus Tech Road Show!
ADX Campus Tech Edition is a first university wide, interactive event that brings in world-class talents and leading brands in the world of IT technology. By enthusiasts for enthusiasts,our goal is to share, empower and offer support to our communities by maximizing these computing tools to their advantage.
Interestingly enough, these laptops were previously known as CULV laptops (CULV stands for consumer ultra-low-voltage processors), but Intel decided, and rightly so, that CULV doesn’t exactly sound sexy to consumers. In fact, it doesn’t sound like anything at all. Voila, ultrabooks.
Ultrabooks marked the start of a new era in mobile computing. But while the term may be new, the laptops themselves aren’t a mutation of some sort. Intel simply put a new spin on an evolving category of laptops that are incredibly thin, battery-efficient, and use low-voltage processors. Under the watchful eyes of Intel and their set parameters for such machine, companies slug it out to meet or even exceed those standards while trying to differentiate their brainchild from the rest of the pack by adding their own personal touch.
Here’s a list of current Ultrabooks from 7 distinguished manufacturers and its respective pros and cons to give you a better perspective.
Everyone is using tablets now!
Students are now just taking pictures of what’s written on the white board instead of copying in notebooks. Digicams have also been somewhat replaced by iPads being used as cameras in gatherings and social events. There was even a time when a young balikbayan girl used an android-powered tablet to take pictures of the exhibits during a tour in one of the historic places of the Philippines.
