[ATTACH=RIGHT]21290[/ATTACH]The HP ProBook 6560b at first glance is not distinguishable from other laptops. However, this business rugged machine was designed for the modern day businessman. It’s sleek, charcoal black aluminum case is smooth to the touch. Weighing in at a little less than six pounds, this laptop was made to hit the road. HP really got a handle on what the needs are of business professionals with this model. Quiet, durable, and secure would be the best way to describe this notebook.

There's an interesting discussion going on in this very forum, right now, right here, which poses the question: [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread341368.html"]Which is best, an AMD or Intel Processor?[/URL] The answer comes in the form of a rhetorical question, namely how long is a piece of string. That said, the real world consensus would appear to be, as it always has been, that Intel is generally faster but also more expensive.

I am something of a Windows fanboy I guess, and will make no bones about the fact that I have always thought of the 13" Apple MacBook Pro in the same way that I have about Military Intelligence, European Community and Advanced BASIC: it's an oxymoron. Given that the smallest of the MacBook Pro range has often been outperformed by non-Pro labelled Macs, not to mention the non-Apple competition, I was almost expecting Apple to see the folly of its ways and scrap the damn thing altogether. And I was half right. [attach]19628[/attach]With the launch of the 2011 MacBook Pro …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]18505[/ATTACH]The HP Elitebook 8440w should be called [I]work-mobile[/I] not workstation. The word ‘workstation’ implies you are stationary at a big, powerful computer. Not if HP has something to say about it. They've successfully taken the workstation concept and combined it with what a mobile user expects from a notebook. This powerful, yet lightweight laptop computer packs a big punch in a 6 lbs. package. Let's take a closer look...

[ATTACH=RIGHT]17350[/ATTACH]Since the release of the second edition of Parallel Studio this month, I've spent a good amount of time with it, trying out the new features. First, what's Parallel Studio? It's an add-in for Microsoft Visual Studio that gives you a large set of features for writing parallel code that targets multiple processor cores. It includes a new C++ compiler that gets run instead of the built-in Visual C++ compiler, allowing you to take advantage of several new features. Parallel Studio integrates with all the recent versions of Visual Studio: 2005, 2008, and 2010. Parallel Studio 2011, which is the …
