Need a Cheap New Laptop? Here's How to Get the Very Best Deal! By Felicity Fairport

A cheap new laptop is a prize. A good cheap new laptop, though, might be considered the holy grail of personal electronics shopping. The reward of the careful comparison shopper and patient laptop researcher.
Of course, you're a smart shopper--and you can figure out how to find a stellar deal and grab the best laptop prices. But why not get a little assistance and benefit from a laptop review blogger's research? Maybe you'll find a tip or two here that will save you time and money.
Let the "Early Adapters" Chase After the Latest Technology
It's easy to convince yourself that you ought to have whatever is cutting-edge and new when you buy a laptop. After all, computers become obsolete so rapidly that there are some good arguments for getting as much as possible of the "latest and greatest" when you go looking for a cheap new laptop. Remember, though, that some bells and whistles are more for entertainment or convenience than for performance. Don't skimp on performance, but don't think you have to have the very best DVD and gaming capabilities, either. You'll pay a high price for these--and insisting on having that stuff may lead you to overlook some excellent laptop values. Here are the minimum performance-related criteria you should be looking for if you are a student or professional:
Processor speed - 2 GHz and up
Memory - At least 1GB of RAM installed
Hard drive - 40 GB to 60 GB
Screen size - Around 15" for the best blend of portability and viewing experience
Weight - 5 lbs and under
Battery Life - At least 4 hours. (The low-voltage models now offer up to 12, by the way.) Also consider buying an additional battery when you make your purchase.
Buy a refurbished laptop
I've heard it said, when seeking computer buying advice, "Once a lemon, always a lemon." In other words (or so my uber-geek friends have told me), if a computer didn't work right for the person who first purchased it, it'll never work quite right for anyone else. I'm sorry--but I just don't buy this. There are a million reasons why someone might return a computer (including just being too computer-illiterate to know how to use it properly). I have personally had very experiences with buying a cheap new laptop from refurbished computer outlets.
Buy from a total geek
I'm being a little tongue in cheek here, but what I'm really saying here is, if you're willing to have your cheap new laptop actually be a (slightly) used new laptop, chase after the early adapters. We all know that person whose idea of obsolescence is a year-old computer that can't run World of Warcraft with quite the smoothness in high-def mode that it once did. Or whose identity is so defined by the computer subculture that it is an embarrassment to have an "older model" laptop. Try looking on Craigslist. The sellers who have exhaustive features lists and ads you can barely understand are your targets. Oh, and if you happen to find a geek who is also a conspiracy theorist, so much the better. You'll end up with a computer with great virus protection and spyware.
You also may want to check out gaming forums for their trading sections. (Most have a place where gamers can sell their computers so as to enable their next planned upgrade.)
Look on the manufacturer's websites
I've often found better cheap new laptop deals on the Toshiba website, for example, than from the major online shopping sites. Many of these are refurbished computers, but you'll also find models that are about to be replaced by a newer version.
Bookmark websites that give you quick recommendations and current sale alerts.
And, of course, it's also good to have a few sites bookmarked that offer good, current cheap new laptop recommendations and sale alerts. If you want some of those specifics on models and best laptop prices--in a format that won't totally overwhelm you with small-print comparison grids and ads, then come on over to My Cheap New Laptop and browse my recommendations and shopping suggestions.
On that site, I try to focus on the kind of full-featured laptops under $700 that would be appropriate for a student or professional. I also try to keep a current list of cheap gaming laptops for under $1000. So, go find your own holy grail of very cheap laptops at

Google Singkirkan Aplikasi Android Adolf Hitler

Stefanus Yugo Hindarto - Okezone
CALIFORNIA - Sejarah kelam perang dunia kedua, masih membekas di hati sejumlah negara, seperti Jerman dan Amerika Serikat. Tak heran jika hal-hal berbau tokoh perang dunia kedua, Adolf Hitler mengundang perdebatan.

Baru-baru ini, Google di protes karena memasukan aplikasi Theme Adolf Hitler di Android App Marketplace. Analis dari Altimeter Group, Michael Gartenberg melaporkan adanya theme Adolf hitler untuk sistem operasi Android.

"Aku sangat terganggu bagaimana Theme tersebut muncul dalam hasil pencarian. Jelas hal ini dibuat untuk menyinggung," tulis Gartenberg di akun twitternya seperti dilansir Engadget, Minggu (15/8/2010).

Setelah mendapatkan protes, Google langsung menyingkirkan aplikasi tersebut dari Android Market. gartenberg mengaku, ia telah mendapatkan balasan dari Google yang menyatakan telah menghapus aplikasi Pro Hitler, dan mengakui bahwa aplikasi tersebut melanggar Term of Service (ToS) yang ada di Android Market.

Gartenberg, menjelaskan ketika itu ia mencoba mencari aplikasi dengan kata 'jewish' namun, tak ditemukan aplikasi apapun. Namun, ketika ia mengetikkan kata 'Hitler' maka ada beberapa aplikasi yang keluar seperti 'Hitler Theme 2', sebuah aplikasi yang dikembangkan oleh Creature Apps. Selain itu, ketika diketik kata 'Nazi' maka yang muncul adalah aplikasi-aplikasi yang sama ketika mencari dengan menggunakan kata 'Hitler'.

Google sendiri mengungkapkan bahwa aplikasi 'Hitler Theme 2' baru diunduh sekira 50 kali. Banyak yang menyesalkan tentang keberadaan aplikasi tersebut, apalagi dibuat oleh pengembang sekelas Creature Apps.

Pengembang aplikasi Creature Apps, selama ini dikenal sebagai pengembang aplikasi Pinup Girl 7 Theme, Legend of the Seeker Theme,'Team Edward Twilight Theme, dan Waldo Theme.

Tablet iPad Mulai Ancam Penjualan Netbook

TAIPEI - Kepopuleran penjualan tablet iPad ternyata mengancam keberadaan netbook. Bahkan, vendor PC sekelas ASUSTek harus mengalami penurunan karena tablet besutan Apple tersebut.

DigiTimes melaporkan, Selasa (17/8/2010) bahwa penjualan netbook Asus meleset pada kuartal kedua tahun ini. Melesetnya target yang dipasang terutama disebabkan oleh persaingan dari iPad tersebut.

Akibatnya, perusahaan asal Taiwan ini telah menyesuaikan target pengiriman pada kuartal ketiga tahun 2010 ini hanya menjadi 1,4 juta unit saja.

"Karena pengiriman menurun dari motherboard, notebook dan netbook, kinerja keuangan Asustek untuk kuartal kedua mengalami penurunanl," tegas CEO ASUSTek Jerry Shen.

"Tapi kami akan terus menawarkan Eee PC dan akan masuk ke segmen tablet PC dengan Eee Note dan seri Eee Pad," cetusnya

Shen menambahkan bahwa Asustek telah secara bertahap meningkatkan produksi outsourcing, dengan proporsi total produksi dijadwalkan akan naik menjadi 30 persen pada akhir tahun 2010 dan 50 persen pada tahun 2011.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 This Android phone puts a fun spin on the OS and sports a good camera, but there are better alternatives.

by Brian Neal on August 13, 2010

Talk about a bold departure from the stock Android experience. When you first turn the Xperia X10 on, it doesn't even look like a Google phone. That's because Sony Ericsson didn't just skin the OS; what you see on its 4-inch screen looks and feels completely different than anything else on the market. This phone's unique Timescape feature lets you flip through social networking updates like a deck of cards, and its Mediascape app neatly organizes your music, photos, and videos--including online content. We also like the Xperia X10's 8-megapixel camera, which borrows fun features from Sony's standalone digicams like face and smile detection. Unfortunately, this 1-GHz smart phone doesn't feel nearly as fast as its clock speed, and it runs the now ancient Android 1.6 OS. So is its $149 price tag reasonable for the features you get, or should you just step up to the Samsung Captivate or iPhone 4?


With its 4-inch scratch-resistant, shatter-proof glass display, the Xperia X10 is nicely balanced between the 3.5-inch iPhone 4 and the larger 4.3-inch Motorola Droid X and HTC Evo 4G. At 4.7 x 2.5 x 0.5 inches and 4.8 ounces, it's slightly shorter but thicker and heavier than the 4.5-ounce Captivate. The X10 is also the same weight as the iPhone 4. However, the iPhone 4 has a much more elegant glass and steel design.
On the plus side, the back is comprised of high-grade soft touch material similar to the Droid X, making it easy to grip. There are no buttons on the left of the phone, but to the right are nicely raised volume buttons and a dedicated camera shutter. On top is a power button and flap-covered mini USB port, with a 3.5mm headphone jack wedged between. For novice Android users, the Xperia X10's three physical buttons (Menu, Home, Back) may seem like standard fare, but the lack of a dedicated search button was a nuisance. We found ourselves reaching for the nonexistent search button often while e-mailing and web browsing, and realized just how much we've come to rely on it.
To make matters worse, the small white LED lights between the buttons barely help to distinguish them in dark conditions. And why use a square icon instead of a Home icon for home? Beneath the phone is the microphone, and on the back is an 8-MP camera accompanied by a light that Sony Ericsson wouldn't dare call an LED flash (we'll touch upon this later).


The Xperia X10 has a 4-inch WVGA 854 x 480-pixel resolution display that's big and bright when the setting is cranked to the max. While not as crisp or colorful as the Super AMOLED display on the Captivate or the iPhone 4's Retina display, the Xperia X10 still does a good job of displaying multimedia content such as videos and pictures. Web sites looked good on the device as well, and the extra screen estate came in handy when dealing with the virtual keyboard.


The Xperia X10's sole reliance on Google's default Android keyboard is a bit of a bummer. Typing in landscape mode was fine and mostly error-free, but entering portrait mode felt too cramped. We recommend installing Swiftkey beta from the Android Market as an alternative to Google's keyboard.
