Apple today confirmed that it will webcast the keynote at its Worldwide Developers Conference next Monday.
Intel is preparing a new 'Braswell' chip to succeed its power-efficient Bay Trail processor found in PCs besides working on bringing over 20 Chromebook designs to the market this year.
Apple sold 14% fewer iPads in the quarter that ended June 30 than in the same quarter last year, while the revenue from those sales plummeted by 27%. The solution? Cut prices, say analysts.
PC shipments in Western Europe declined by 20.5% during the first quarter: The only vendors to see shipments grow were Lenovo and Apple, which returned to the top five.
Google today announced a new low-priced clamshell-style Samsung Chromebook computer for $249 that runs the Chrome OS.
Toshiba said Tuesday it will soon begin mass production of a new line of hybrid disk drives equipped with flash memory, touting them as a low-cost replacement for the solid-state drives used in ultrabook and laptop computers.
Notebooks equipped with hard drives will dominate the market for years to come, meaning the market for notebooks with SSDs pose no threat, according to a new report from iSuppli.

Dell touts the Latitude 2120 as the ideal netbook for business. That engenders the question: is an old-school, underperforming, under-screened netbook can really be an ideal solution for business computing?
A flood of simple computing devices is hitting the market, aimed at pushing the cloud outside of the enterprise. Samsung and Acer have announced Chromebooks. Startup ITWin is offering a USB device that helps users access files on remote computers. And Panasonic has shown a Viera tablet for its TVs.
Google's all-Web computers are due to hit stores June 15. Here's a look at what to expect.
Netbooks are so formulaic these days, it's difficult to stand out from the crowd. Samsung, in a small way, has managed that with the $330 (price as of May 11, 2011) NC110. With only the standard netbook 10.1-inch display, the typical 250GB hard drive, and the usual accoutrements, the NC110 instead makes an impression through a combination of styling, battery life, and software. Unfortunately, it also stands out as a slow performer.
The Toshiba Mini NB305-N600 ($380 as of April 5, 2011) comes from the higher end of Toshiba's two-part netbook family. Nothing if not eager to meet your netbook needs, Toshiba offers its two basic models--the Mini NB300 and NB500 series--in a total of 11 configurations, and figuring out how they differ requires going through spec sheets with a magnifying glass. Of course, specs don't tell the whole story, anyway--and overall, the story isn't that compelling.
Toshiba's Mini NB505-508GN has two things that separate it from the netbook pack, albeit only slightly: a somewhat better-than-average keyboard and longer-than-average battery life. Okay, make that three things--it's also better-looking than most of its competition with its smooth styling and lime-green lid. Otherwise, the unit is the epitome of the cookie-cutter netbook.
