Review Sony Vaio Series Y (VPC-Y210FL).html



i3-330UM Intel to 1.20 GHz with HyperThreading and HD4500 graphics (more details

HM55 Intel Express chipset.

3 GB of DDR3 memory.

800.Disco SATA-2 320 GB at 5400 RPM.

13.3 inch LCD Display, maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels.

VGA and HDMI outputs.

3 USB ports.

2 Port FireWire400.

ExpressCard/34 slot.

SD card reader and MemoryStick.Ethernet of 1 Gbps and wi-fi to 150 Mbps

Bluetooth 2.1.

VGA.Audio HD Webcam, microphone and headphone jacks 3.5 mm.

6-cell Sony laptop battery.

For those looking for something between a netbook and a notebook, but there are few attractive options in the category of ultralight laptops. The best I could find after reading reviews and comments from users for months, are UL Series Y Series Asus and Sony. Finally I decided on the latter, then why I comment.

The design is elegant and modern at the same time, features the company’s usual aesthetic, colored aluminum casing and black keys and base color. The build quality of this notebook is excellent, with no flex in the keyboard or mechanisms that can present problems in the future. No heat, and can be used on your legs warm as it remains perfectly still require full capacity, the low-power processor (CULV) dissipates little heat, and continued use of the disc also greatly increases the temperature of the equipment. Its dimensions are 32.6 cm. wide, 22.7 deep and 2.3 to 3.2 cm high, with a total weight of 1.78 kg

The relationship between performance and battery life is excellent. Despite having a lower speed to i3-330 for desktops, the processor has enough power to have multiple applications open without any noticeable slow, while when at low idle speed to 667 MHz (5 x 133). With the included battery, the notebook can last up to 6 hours on when the wi-fi enabled, and 10 hours or more with the 9 cell. The hard disk performance is good considering its 5400 RPM, with the HD Tach 2.55 got about 71 MB / sec transfer, and a burst rate of 87 MB / sec.

The display quality is superior to most notebooks on the market, with good contrast and acceptable viewing angles, while its anti-reflective filter allows us to fully use outdoors. The integrated Intel graphics processor allows us to use the Aero interface smoothly on Windows 7, with full HD video playback smooth, and even run some 3D games if we set in low quality and resolution no greater than 1024 × 768.

The score I got with the 3DMark06 (standard) was 1092, whereas in Windows the score is 3.6. Those who need a little more speed on the graphics for 3D games, the series will have to consider from Asus, it supports nVidia Optimus technology (although it is important to note that the build quality and components as the display is not as good)

Chiclet keyboard feature of the Vaio is very comfortable to write, especially if we do it at high speed and using all fingers. The touchpad is good enough to not need to carry an external mouse, but as a complaint, I can not believe that in the SonyStyle of Argentina does not have an optional bluetooth mouse (Dell themselves are offered on some models)….

Playbook : Blackberry tablet review

Oh yeah! Finally showed its face. RIM’s highly anticipated tablet is a reality and has just been submitted by Mike Lazaridis in the BlackBerry Developer Conference 2010. The tablet, dubbed Playbook, goes still under development but already made official that characterize specifications, with a dual core Cortex A9 at 1GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 7 inch screen – the new size of fashionable ? – e-reader function, support for 1080p video, full of documents and editor absolute synchronization with your BlackBerry (we expected no less). It also has HDMI output, USB and thickness will be about 9.7 10 mm interesting.


The PlayBook will have a 7-inch screen, making it half the size of the iPad, and weigh about 400 grams (14 ounces) to the iPad’s 680 grams (1.5 pounds). And unlike the iPad, it will have two cameras, front and back.

The PlayBook will be able to act as a second, larger screen for a BlackBerry phone, through a secure short-range wireless link. When the connection is severed – perhaps because the user walks away with the phone – no sensitive data like company e-mails are left on the tablet. Outside of Wi-Fi range, it will be able to pick up cellular service to access the Web by linking to a BlackBerry.

Based on a platform developed by QNX, enjoy OpenGL support POSIX, and even dares to suggest that flirts with the gaming market, almost nothing. In the words of Lazaris this is “the first professional tablet” plus “a magnified view of what you see on your BlackBerry.” In short you enumerate in detail all its features, but to go by mouth, then you have an image gallery and a video waiting after the jump.

Update: No sooner said than done. Already have a waiting list of detailed after the jump, among which niceties such as multitasking, your BlackBerry Tablet OS with support for multiple platforms or integrated dual camera (front and rear) with 1080 recording. Furthermore, we let a second gallery with more images of the tablet where you can know a little better. You’re taking time to review it with us.

The operating system is the new Windows Phone 7 Otherwise, the smartphone with wireless-n, GPS and HSDPA / HSUPA all the features that are expected of a modern mobile phone. In practice, the integrated stand. This is behind the camera, can be folded out and gives the HTC HD7 footing on a level surface.

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven – so I get to the increment still higher on a number – how the hell ..?

The fact that been a success for the HD2 HTC is, I must tell you good or not? Is surely “selbstkapische, that HTC is planning a sequel?

You have not even spoken by a HD2-HD3 as a successor?

Seems that HTC are planning an upcoming smartphone, which is the new Microsoft operating system is dedicated. The “HTC HD7″ will be performed in a o2 inventory – this was leaked to the guys at Engadget.

What can it do? What does it want? What does it cost?

I really do not know – do not you agree, I would have told you?

It says a date, 18.10.2010 – we want to wait together?

When the HD2 equipped with Windows Mobile 7?

No !!!!!

These three here struggling with the Windows 7ext throne Phone: Samsung Omnia 7ext, HTC HD7ext Mozartext and 7. Reason enough to be on all sides to see exactly once. Neus striking though nothing is above all the good quality from Super Omnia AMOLEDext display 7: deep blacks and wide viewing angle independence of the other two can be compared to WP7 phones already look a little old. The 7 Mozart comes in terms of a good second place, last place is the HD7. All three Dsplays up close you can see in the video after the break.

Lenovo IdeaPad U260, an ultraportable 12.5 laptop

The filtering of the day and this leads Lenovo IdeaPad U260. So far the manufacturer has not confirmed anything, but the quality of the photographs make it very clear that we have a formal meeting of this new ultra-thin notebook. As have the team offers a 12.5 inch screen has a thickness of 1.80 inches and weighs only 1.37 kg, and of course, such measures have forced optical unit lacks, but certainly not been spared potential, and that will be available in versions with i3 and i5 Core low voltage.

The rest of the round features a 4-cell battery, Bluetooth 2.1, VGA and HDMI, WiFi, 4GB RAM, 320 GB hard drive and a couple of colors to choose from.

Very interesting new proposal ultraportable Lenovo people, talking about a laptop with a screen size of the original somewhat, 12.5 inches, and powerful specifications for its size.

The Lenovo IdeaPad U260 comes on the market without making much noise, in fact we share pictures and specifications are leaks and no official information from Lenovo itself. Following points out, have a weight of only 1.4 kg and 1.8 cm thick.

Following in the footsteps of other small portable size, have decided to dispense with the optical drive, but fortunately had no problem to include Intel Core i3/i5, 4GB of RAM, and 320GB hard drive. We’ll see if they include an option for SSD drives.

For the preparation of the laptop is used an alloy of magnesium and aluminum for housing, and values to be used outdoors rather have chosen a matte screen. In short we are facing a possible alternative to Windows 7 to the new MacBook Air.

Details that we liked so much are the 4-cell battery, they get a formal autonomy of 4 hours, and no possibility of expanding the RAM, but is well served as standard. N We have WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 2.1, two USB 2.0 ports and have not forgotten the VGA and video outputs HDMI or Ethernet connection.

The Lenovo IdeaPad U260 will be available in two colors: Mocha Brown and Clementine Orange, and is expected to be close to the $ 1000 barrier.

Reset the PMU and solution for PowerBook G4 (12-inch) battery won't charge

The battery in my G4 Powerbook won't charge, and I am a long way from any technical help!

I recently received a replacement battery PowerBook G4. However, it seems the battery is faulty. I charged it fully for 16 hours but after the first 5 minutes of use the computer shutdown without warning. It would not restart on battery power. I have reset the PRAM and System Management, rebooted several times and the problem persists. Apple recalled batteries behaving in the same way a while ago and I believe my battery has the same fault. So I search in google and found the Apple reply :

There are some ways to reset the PMU. Have you tried them all?

PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch Double-Layer SD) and PowerBook G4 (17-inch Double-Layer SD)

1. If the computer is on, turn it off.

2. Disconnect the AC Adapter and remove the computer's Apple a1175 battery.

3. Press and hold down the power button for 5 seconds and then release the button.

4. Reconnect the Apple a1185 battery and AC Adapter.

5. Press the Power button to restart the computer.

If a Apple laptop battery is completely drained, it may not charge properly the next time you connect the computer's power adapter.

Products affected

If the issue recurs after installing Mac OS X 10.2.4 or later, continue normal operation as the situation should resolve itself within a few minutes.

Tips to Prevents your laptop from overheat in Summer


One drawback of laptops is overheat. With a shrinking size, all laptop manufacturers make laptop with thermal materials to keep the balance between power and temperature.

At the risk of offending the manufacturers, it seems obvious that they not always get that balance.Most notebooks like (HP pavilion dv5 battery) have serious temperature problems, and more so at this time of summer, as the temperature does not help cooling. Here are some tips from for your computer, and by extension your laptop, not like a steak roast.

Keep free ventilation

Though small and well camouflaged, there are many vents. It is vital to ensure that your Dell inspiron 15 battery have a free method to expel hot air. Otherwise, the computer will become an oven.

The laptops are designed for use on flat surfaces, leaving a small space for such grids (thanks to the feet.) If you put the laptop on a soft surface like a blanket, the legs go down, and the ventilation is blocked.

Cleaning laptop

It is pointless for the grids have a free hand if they are blocked with dust and dirt. A regular basic cleaning and help keep your HP pavilion dv4 battery cool and running like a charm.

If you are not going to use for a while, keep it stored where it can not catch dust. If you have a furry pet, do not let the hair rampant through your house. A vacuum cleaner can help remove the hair that may have been introduced to the fans. If you're brave enough, you can open the computer and clean it thoroughly, and here's how.

Laptop Cooling Stand

The use of cooling stand is almost obligatory in most cases, they can reduce the HP pavilion dv8000 battery temperature around 10 degrees or so. Unfortunately, the quality often leaves much to be desired. Avoid buying "cheap" cooling stand because it will break soon after out of the box.

Note that larger diameter fans make less noise, but probably cover less space than two smaller ones. In essence, there are two kinds with different characteristics: plastic and metal (the first is cheaper, the second looks better but can become a pan).

Energy Saving

As you use your Dell inspiron 1440 battery computer, it is inevitable that this warms. We will not ask you to stop using it, but you can minimize the time it is on, energy-saving setting Windows to turn off the screen, suspend or hibernate after a certain period of inactivity.

In the article on how to increase your battery life and we provide some recommendations and programs for a more efficient energy consumption. Everything is summarized in the maxim "Let him rest when not in use."

Less CPU usage

Laptop computers are smart: if they do not need all the power, not use, saving Dell inspiron 1545 battery power and also winning in freshness. Although these machines are almost as powerful than desktop computers, make the most of the graphics market last game under the sweltering heat of summer, it is probably the last thing you can do with it.

The more your HP pavilion dv9000 battery computer has to work hard, earn a higher temperature. A powerful graphics card is usually a time bomb in terms of temperature, and the same will happen if your hard drives have to constantly work overtime.

In short, keep a laptop cool is not easy. Common sense, a laptop cooling stand and reduce some of the monitoring programs that we saw in the selection of programs for laptops will be helpful.

The Digital camera battery daily maintenance


At present, there are two types of digital camera batteries, professional lithium batteries and 5 AA batteries. The professional lithium battery is very light, high capacity, environmental protection, and no memory effect, but the price is expensive, and can’t be use generally. Ni-Mh battery with high capacity, and discharge deeply, and durable to charge and discharge, short charge time and other obvious advantage. The most important of all is cheap and can be use generally.

The Original post from :

No matter what kind of Sony NP-BG1 battery, as long as it company sale with digital camera, the user manual will indicate the attention items, some manufacturers even print out a single user guide of Canon NB-4L battery, and charger. Those manual are the basic but useful maintain instruction, such as the charge method, charge time of the battery. It is necessary for the new users to take few times to read it.

Normal users don’t have a professional bag to store the battery when use the digital camera, they usually put the battery randomly no matter the place is clean or wet after replace the battery. It is easy to dirty the battery, and contact with metal things, such as key, it also maybe wet, those are the enemy of battery.

Suggestion: User should find a professional position for the Nikon EN-EL3E battery, and keep its clean. In order to avoid the power losing or any other problem, keep clean of battery two side touch point and battery cover, you can clean it with soft dry cloth when necessary.

If long time no need to use the digital camera, then you must take out the Fujifilm NP-40 battery from the camera and store it in dry and cool environment. Regarding the Ni-Mh battery, it should be discharged fully then store it or store it with power? The two different point, should adopt which one? A lot of people choose the former, but I think it is more reasonable to store the battery with power. Because according to the test, the best condition of storing a Ni-Mh Olympus Li-12b battery is with 80% power. This is due to the Ni-Mh battery discharge itself at 10-15% monthly. As you can as well, the new Ni-Mh battery always have power, it is the same reason.

How to prolong digital cameras battery life


At present, digital cameras have been widely used. How to extend digital cameras battery life, 7 kinds of methods introduced here:

(A) Less flash. Flash power consumption is the largest in the Kodak automatic mode and PASM mode, the flash can be turned off (scene mode exception).

(B) Turn off auto-zoom. Camera's default setting is continuous AF zoom, which is the camera around the scene on a continuous zoom, in the setting menu will be a continuous zoom into a single, the icon for the Sony NP-BG1 AF.

(C) Reduce image editing times in the camera . Applications readers up in the computer editing view pictures, if we did not have the camera to edit view pictures, would be able to save half of the electricity.

(D) a change in image format. According to their Canon BP-511 actual needs, the pictures taken will be transferred as far as possible into the low-storage format. This camera can speed up time to write disk, naturally a power-saving.

(E) Viewfinder LCD screen when you minimize the use of multi-use Casio NP-30 EVF viewfinder.

(Vi) to reduce the number of zoom. Telephoto lens to narrow the disparity is indeed a lot of power Yo!

(7) in the setting menu to switch off Fujifilm NP-45 unnecessary switches.

Jack hopes that help you.
