Dell XPS 13 Review

As technology innovations go, battery life tries to grow without affecting the size of the laptop/notebook. Dell took the idea of an 11' ultrabook to the next level & thinned the fat off the new Dell XPS 13. This bad-boy has the frame of an 11 inch ultrabook with a screen resolution of a 13 inch.

Mushkin ECO2 240GB 7mm SSD Review

Selecting the right hard drive for your laptop or PC just became a bit easier thanks to Mushkin. The introduction of the ECO2 series of SSD's brings the price per gigabyte down to well below .50 cents, and it does so with reliability and a trusted brand name. With read speeds up to 550MB/sec and write speeds up to 530MB/sec you are getting a very competitive SSD at an excellent price that is suitable for all of your storage needs. The ECO2 is being introduced in 120, 240, and 480GB capacities and while you would think that at 480GB the price tag would be similarly inflated the 480GB version retails for a mere $159.99 making it the best SSD deal we have seen.
