Analyst Opinion - The fourth quarter, particularly after Black Friday, is particularly important to the PC industry. PCs are, for the first time in this decade, according to the CEA, at the top of the wish list for folks in the US and that indicates that volume should be very strong. While we often watch Apple, Dell, HP, Acer (Gateway), and Lenovo in this segment, the big fight is always between AMD and Intel.
Tokyo (Japan) - Dell today announced the XPS One, one of its highest-end enthusiast computers to date.
The One has a 20-inch widescreen, high definition glass display, side-mounted speakers, and a built-in webcam. It also has pre-configured Wi-Fi, internal Bluetooth, and an 8-in-1 media card reader.
AMD today answered Intel’s almost unchallenged conquest of the microprocessor segment over the past 15 months. The company officially launched the Phenom quad-core desktop CPU, the 700-series chipset and the HD3800 graphics cards.
