New gadgets in 2013

Save on DeliciousDigg ThisSubmit to redditSubmit to StumbleUpon

It may seem like 2013 will be the year of touch screen gadgets, now with a more larger screen and better image quality. Even myself bought recently a Kindle fire HD 7 and I use it constantly for work and entertainment. It may seem like a merger between mobile devices and desktops.
One of the reasons it my seem like that is because computer operating systems start to look more and more like a mobile operating system(Ubuntu, Windows 8, etc). Continue reading

TOP all in one computers 2012-2013

Here it is, TOP all in one computers 2013 :

HP TouchSmart 9300 Elite

If you work in an environment where you use touch screen all day, than this is what you need. Perfect interaction, TouchSmart interface works very well, the display is large and responsive. You can even recline it to about 45 degrees up the point that touch input becomes more comfortable than tapping on a vertically oriented screen. The computing power is way better than that of average all-in one PCs, it provides a top performance and comes with great tools that make it easy to manage your apps and secure your files. You can see full specifications here.

Acer All in One Z5

The most impressive qualities about this product is the fast processor which allows you to perform easy multitasking and the 1.5TB hard drive for all your needs. What also makes a difference is the wireless keyboard and mouse which allows you to freely choose your body position and feel comfortable when you use it. Its monitor is large and comes with built-in stereo speakers and a high-definition webcam. The touch works like a charm, is highly sensitive and Acer TouchPortal helps you synchronize your files and apps. It’s available in two models and you can find specifications for both of them here and here.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720

What I like about Lenovo is the adjustable screen. You can let it all the way down and use it for playing games from this flat position, some of which come pre-installed. Its design is more stylish than the competitors and the multi-touch function gives you the opportunity to connect with others by playing games with multiple partners if you want. The performance is basic, so I don’t recommend it for corporate or work use, but it’s nice for home entertainment. More technical details here.

HP Omni 27

The wonderful things about it are the fast, powerful quad-core processor, the large and attractive screen, great audio and the low price. It lacks touch screen and its performance is fair. The 2TB hard drive is ideal for keeping your files, photos and videos. It’s a good choice for media streaming and if you are a gamer, you will enjoy the HDMI with “Game Mode”. More specifications here

iMac (21.5 inch)

What I appreciate about iMac is the beautiful design, the wireless and thin keyboard and mouse. Its best features are the Thunderbolt port which can support up to six daisy-chained peripherals and data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps in both directions and the Magic Trackpad. You will be delighted to see the 1920-by-1080 HD resolution and, if you like chatting, you will love the built-in FaceTime HD camera, giving 720p resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio. Read more technical details here.

Buy PowerDock 5

http://crunchygadgets.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/buy-powerdock.jpgDigg ThisSubmit to redditSubmit to StumbleUpon

The new PowerDock 5 has been anounced at CES 5 and it will be available for a retail price of $99 in Spring.

People today don’t have just one mobile device that needs to be recharged, and having to plug each one in the power outlet can be a bit messy. Well, with five charging bays solves your problem, and with the wide space between the bays you don’t even need to remove your iPad case. I personally would buy PowerDock 5 once it will be released.

As for photos and video, the asus eee pad transformer tf101 offers an average experience with its two cameras -1.2 megapixel (Front); 5.0 Megapixel (Rear). You can use them for video conferencing and for both shooting and HD recording which then you can play on your HDTV via the mini HDMI output port.

The input and output rely on 1 x Mini HDMI, 2-in-1 audio jack (head phone/mic-in jack) and the internal mic. The 3D stereo and built-in speakers using SRS Sound technology made my heart vibrate with joy as I became aware of the wide sound field from the discrete speakers.

The low price for all these features make it a good deal. You can buy it from here or read more about its technical details.

“What’s the best?”

When you start searching for a tablet, you want the best one you can get for the lowest price. But “the best tablet” is not always that easy to define. I will compare 3 tablets so that you will be able to choose the one you consider “the best” according to your needs.

“Should I buy the Nook?”

Nook Tablet has 16gb but out of these only 1gb can be used to store your own files and the rest is for the things you buy from Barnes and Noble, so you need micro SD card if you want more space. They also give you free NOOK Cloud storage. I must also mention that they have no camera, no Bluetooth, 3g or 4g networks or HDMI output. But the price is lower, the battery will last longer, the reading experience is great and it’s lighter, making it easier to carry it around. If you are a heavy reader and you want to save some money, buy a Nook Tablet.

“Should I buy the iPad?”

Ipad 3 has the best resolution curently available on the market and the best GPU. It comes with 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions and it gives 5GB free iCloud storage. It has a 5MP rear facing camera rendering 1080p videos and a VGA camera to use for video calls.
Their iOS version 5.1.1 offers access to Apple App Store which is filled with 550,000 of apps. It also allows Wi-Fi sync so you don’t have to connect to a computer with a USB anymore unless you want it. If you want many high quality apps buy an Ipad 3 .

“Should I buy the Kindle Fired HD?”

Kindle Fire HD comes out with the first anti-glare technology and a better sound and wireless connectivity than Ipad 3. It’s available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions and offers 20GB of cloud storage space for your own stuff, plus unlimited cloud storage for all Amazon content. It uses a HD front-facing camera for video chatting on the tablet’s customed version of Skype and other similar software. Its operating system is a modified ad-supported version of Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich which allows you to access Amazon’s Appstore. You got access to the most popular apps such as Netflix, Skype, HBO Go, Angry Birds and in US for $79 a year you can get access to thousands of unlimited, commercial-free, instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows and books, making Amazon the best player around. If you want content, buy Kindle Fire HD.

Kindle Fire HD

http://crunchygadgets.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_smile.gifDigg ThisSubmit to redditSubmit to StumbleUpon

Kindle Fire HD from Amazon comes with a bunch of brand new features and at a smaller price ($199.00) than its competitors, Apple and Google.  After checking it, I must say that I’m quite impressed : vivid colors, amazing sound, video playback at 720p, screen resolution 1280 x 800 and you can opt for 16GB or 32GB internal storage. But, let’s get to the interesting part – its unique features : x-Ray for movies and books and whispersync. If you watch a movie and you want to know who the actor from a scene is, just tap and you’ll be directed to imdb where you’ll see more information about the actor and other roles he played. With whispersync you can Pause and then Resume so you can finish what you were doing at the moment you left the application. Whispersync is available for voice, movies, books and games



Some other goodies: the HD front-facing camera for video calls, dual-band Wi-Fi which allows faster downloads and better quality streaming, dual Wi-Fi antennae for improved signal strength and built-in Bluetooth. Its designers made it 20 times stiffer and 30 times harder than plastic, plus it comes with 1 year limited Warranty and service, so don’t worry, be happy :)

More information and technical details available:
Kindle Fire HD 7″, Dolby Audio, Dual-Band Wi-Fi, 16 GB
