Got the Toshiba Portégé Z835 a few weeks back (during info connect). That device is really light, lighter than a macbook air even. The image above is if the Toshiba Z835(left) next to my 15″ Macbook pro (right). Its got an i5 CPU clocked at 1.6Ghz, 4GB of RAM, 128 SSD storage drive 13.3″ LED screen, SD card reader, HDMI port and USB 3.0.
I really do think that laptops should be light and portable. That’s he whole purpose of a laptop. As soon as you start wanting it to do more, it starts getting heavier and bigger. Anyone that wants to do intensive tasks should get a desktop. The bigger screen, better graphics card and CPU all at a better price point is much nicer offer.
The Z835 i a light, portable laptop with a very good battery (4-4:30 hours). You can’t tell if you have it in your backpack or not due to how light it is. Got it from XCite for 345KD during Info Connect. Then got another one for 349KD from their showroom.
Yesterday we passed by Info Connect at the International Fair Ground to see what’s new. We weren’t expecting much from there except for some new DSL prices but we still had to wonder around checking stuff out before ManU/Arsenal – Egypt/Ghana games.
To our amazement we found a cleaning solution in an Tech/IT expo.
we ended up buying 3 of this AMAZING Kleaner :/
Also when walking around we noticed an unreleased Android mobile device on display in a protected glass case.
Yes it is the SonyEricsson’s upcoming X10. it will be the company’s first android device that should be available as early as next month.
Zidaneoo was also looking for a new laptop. So, we had a quick look around and saw an i7 and an i5 HP laptops that had a very good price. cant remember the exact pricing and specs. but I should have the up soon.
We took our time there wich made us miss both game’s kick-off. and when we got to Showtime’s booth i saw this.
Of course they were watching the Egypt game.
And when it was time to leave, it was raining and we were greeted with a lightnings show.
So, not much to say about the Expo. With the exception of semi-good ADSL prices.
