Top Four Ultrabooks

If you're looking for a svelte and sleek laptop that offers an ultra-thin form factor and light weight, then you should look no further than the latest ultrabooks. Many of the latest offerings are following in the footsteps of the MacBook Air in how thin and light they can get their machines. However, these ultrabooks still pack a performance punch. Some of these ultrabooks may even be available with discounts from a Newegg coupon code.

Asus Zenbook UX31A

For $1,499.00, the ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A offers sleek looks and an excellent 1920x1080 1080p IPS screen that gives the MacBook Air a run for its money. The UX31A also offers an adjustable backlit keyboard, giving users the ability to type in confidence in dark places. Within the chassis is a powerful 1.9-GHz Intel Core i7-3517U processor with integrated Intel HD graphics, 4GB of RAM and a 250GB SSD. The UX31A also offers the impressive Bang & Olufsen ICEPower speaker setup.

Pros:
  •   High-quality display with bright and sharp colors
  •   Fast Core i7 processor
  •   Excellent Bang & Olufsen speakers
Cons:
  •   No full-size HDMI or VGA port
  •   Erratic trackpad

HP Folio 13

At $899.00, the HP Folio 13 resides at the lower end of the price spectrum and yet it offers plenty to potential buyers. The 3.2-pound ultrabook comes in a subdued matte silver finish with a brushed aluminum lid. Underneath lies a 1.6-GHz Core i5-2467M processor with Intel HD graphics, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. The Folio also comes with a few thoughtful touches, including a soft-touch bottom and fingerprint-resistant surfaces.

Pros:
  •   Excellent value
  •   Excellent battery life
  •   Sturdy design with backlit keyboard
Cons:
  •  Screen not as bright as other ultrabooks
  •  Heavier than most ultrabooks in its class

Dell XPS 13

Reasonably priced at $999.00, the Dell XPS 13 offers an attractive design and plenty of innovative features. For starters, the bottom of the laptop is made of carbon fiber instead of the usual aluminum. That helps keep the ultrabook relatively cool while saving weight. It also features edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass, giving it a measure of strength and sophistication. The XPS comes with Intel's 1.6-GHz Core i5-2467M processor along with a 128GB SSD, 4GB of RAM and integrated Intel HD graphics.

Pros:
  •  Edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass provides durability
  •  Attractive overall design
  •  Comfortable keyboard
Cons:
  •  1366x768 resolution lower than most ultrabooks
  •  Lacks a SD card slot
  •  Battery life is lower-than-average

Toshiba Portege Z835

Toshiba's latest entry in the ultrabook market is one of the sleekest and lightest of them all. It is also one of the lowest priced ultrabooks at just $829.00. The Toshiba Portege Z835 weighs in at just 2.4 pounds, which makes it lighter than its nearest competitors. It also features a robust magnesium alloy chassis. The Portege's keyboard is also backlit and spill-resistant, making it very convenient to use in a variety of situations. The trackpad is accurate, but the keyboard keys are a bit stiff. Underneath is 1.4-GHz Intel Core i3-2367M processor with integrated Intel HD graphics, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD.

Pros:
  •  Exceptionally long battery life
  •  Extremely light weight
  •  Accurate touchpad
  •  Backlit keyboard
Cons:
  •  SSD offers slower-than-normal write speeds
  •  Display is not as good as other ultrabooks

Cloud Computing, a buzz word? By Paul Hughes


It seems that on a daily basis now we are being asked about “the cloud” and cloud based services, as the technology Manager for UKHost4u this is something which is getting more technically challenging to answer.

If you look for a description of the term online the rough explanation is: Cloud Computing refers to the delivery of computing and storage capacity as a service to a community of end-recipients. The problem with this description for me is that it basically means that anything you store online and allow more than one person to access is within a cloud (So virtually everything already on the internet). For this reason I start to ask myself is the term more of a new buzz word than any actual new technological meaning.

I think we now need to look at this from a different angle, the actual software technology being sold to service providers. Being that we have hundreds of new technology providers contact us on a monthly basis we get a very good idea about what is new and market leading. Within the cloud hosting we have seen deployments from Microsoft, Amazon, Parallels, OnApp and well the list goes on.

We have recently had time to internally deploy and test the technologies provided by Microsoft using Hyper-V and System Center 2012 and a newer and most likely less well known company called: OnApp. The reason I have selected both of these technologies is because one covers the Windows server technologies and the other Linux (Though technically both can work with most operating systems, Windows or Linux).

 The testing solution we built for both platforms had the same hardware setup with three server’s using the latest Dual Xeon processors and over 64GB of memory in each system. For the storage we used an EMC network SAN with 8GB Fiber Channel interconnects to each server. What we found was that both software technologies installed and configured without issue on our development solutions and did allow us to play with what they referred to as cloud hosting.

The main problem was that these solutions didn’t do anything much more than what you could do with an open source Virtual technology. Yes they allowed for load balancing, high availability and centralized storage but this personally is no more than a High Availability Virtual Server which is possible with nearly all the Virtual Server Technologies and for me does not make it a cloud.

So what do I expect to see within a true cloud, simple total resilience? Ok, I’m aware nothing is ever 100% resilient but within a cloud I would at least expect: It to be able to scale virtual environments over more than one physical node at the same time. Its correct that it can move between nodes but what I want to see is a process lets say on one Hyper-V container being able to pick a CPU from any of the nodes within the cloud or use more than one servers physical CPU allocation at the same time and within the same section it should allow memory allocations as large as the physical cloud and not be limited by the size of the server in which the virtual environment is placed.

Another feature which is very important is being able to scale it over 2 or more diverse locations which is certainly possible but due to most solutions taking advantage of SAN storage and IPv4 its currently outside of the scope of most providers as they need to have a very advanced network designed specifically for this.

As an example Facebook have a vast array of servers and networks but the majority of them cater for geographical locations and the server farm sits within the same data center or building so multiple locations for redundancy still do not exist. A natural disaster or failure in the data center will take down the operations of that particular country which happened fairly recently with this provider. Cloud in this situation did not exist though it did technically meet the definition and requirements to be one.

To summarize I have found during my research the cloud is a way more to define how we use the internet on a day to day basis, it allows for sharing more of our personal information online be it via social media or another technology. It’s taking us away from the need to be in front of the same computer and giving us the ability to access content from any location worldwide with internet access. What it does not do though and which a lot of people seem to think it does is provides a more secure, stable and fault-tolerant platform as the software and hardware has some time to go before this will take place and technology can always fail!

Welcome Driverless Cars


Summary
The SEO Berkshire team within digital agency Cayenne Red is interested in all things technical of course, so we were fascinated to learn that soon our roads will be packed with driverless Google cars. But is this a gimmick, or a meaningful step forward towards something that will help mankind?


The SEO Berkshire team within digital agency Cayenne Red is interested in all things technical of course, so we were fascinated to learn that soon our roads will be packed with driverless Google cars. But is this a gimmick, or a meaningful step forward towards something that will help mankind?

You can’t quite imagine Messrs Clarkson, Hammond and May getting that excited by the Google driverless cars. These are not the rocket propelled supercars that so many people like to drool over. Instead, they are quite plain cars with computers taking over the controls.

They’ve been tested in the US and also in Spain, and have shown to be reliable and safe. However, the cars were strictly controlled and in the case of Spain mimicked the use of a ‘lead’ human driver at the front of a convoy.

But, in terms of how quickly technology advances in a matter of months, it’s likely that driverless cars will quickly be a reality on the streets.

And we should welcome this advancement with open arms. Okay, yes, driving can be fun and yes, there’s nothing like running through the gears in a swift car on the open road. But, the sad truth is, modern day driving is all about negotiating hugely busy roads when the chance of breaking the speed limit would be a rare thing indeed.

Also, driving is ever more demanding, with local authorities seeing road furniture (signs, sleeping policemen) as a chance to keep the driver’s eyes anywhere but the car in front. Drive down an average City road these days and you are confronted with so many visual instructions that you’ll soon need a computer to figure them out.

Now, driverless cars are super clever. They don’t get over-stimulated by signs, don’t start flashing the finger to bike riders and certainly don’t wish to separate a traffic warden’s head from his shoulders.

Nor do they get fatigued, which is a major problem with today’s roads. They don’t have to stop every two hours on the motorway to get refueled with a KFC and super Cola.

So, we should embrace these wonders of technology. The only issue is what happens when there is an accident? Will it be a similar situation we have with bank ATMs, a presumed sense of innocence?

Anyone who’s been short-changed by an ATM will know how difficult it is to prove the injustice of not getting the right number of notes. It’s like hitting your head against a brick wall.

So when the driver-less, highly intelligent car decides to throw a wobbly and smash into you – try proving to the judge that simple you, who doesn’t have a computer processor for a brain, was not at fault!

Move over Top Gear.
