Dell extended its notebook Inspiron series with Pentium M-based Inspiron 8600, which will include several versions with 1.3, 1.4, 1.6 and 1.7 GHz (i855PM chipset).
Inspiron 8600 has 15.4" TFT LCD with WXGA (1280 x 800), WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) and WUXGA (1920 x 1200) resolutions supported. Looking for the chipset we can say that the series will use PC2700 (DDR333 SDRAM). It is known, that 1.6 GHz-based model will have 1 GB RAM (maximal capacity for the systems – 2 GB). The most advanced model is equipped with 80 GB HDD (Ultra ATA/100). As for the graphics, new notebooks will have MOBILITY RADEON 9000 32 MB, optionally it can be changed to GeForce FX Go5650 128 MB or GeForce4 4200 Go 64 MB.
As for the interfaces, the set is rather usual: 10/100BASE-TX, IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 (2 ports), S-Video out, CardBus Type I/II etc. It is worth mentioning such standard features as IEEE 802.11b/g and Bluetooth support. The most advanced model has built-in combo CD-R/RW & DVD-ROM drive.
As it is mentioned, Inspiron 8600´s battery life is about 4 hours. The dimensions
of the notebooks are 359 x 274 x 38 mm, weight (depending on HDD/optical drive
set) is about 3.3 kg.

VIA Technologies extended its line of processors for embedded appliances with VIA Eden ESP7000 based on the CoolStream architecture and featuring the PadLock Data Encryption Engine. The CPU is designed for noiseless entertainment systems, comms, commercial and industrial appliances.
VIA Eden ESP7000 brief specs:
The provisional Soltek Computer´s motherboard roadmap that we posted about a couple of weeks ago was confirmed again by the release of the first Intel 848P-based motherboard, SL-848P-L.
Like other models on this chipset, SL-848P-L supports Intel Pentium 4 with 800MHz FSB, Intel Hyper-Threading, DDR400, AGP 8X. The company also promises that its Soltek UV technology will provide compatibility with all Pentium 4 CPUs, including those yet to be released.
The ICH5 Southbridge extends SL-848P-L with 2 x Serial ATA ports, 8 x USB2.0 ports. Besides, SL-848P-L features 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet controller. As usual for Soltek boards, the novelty supports various BIOS adjustments.
Internal sources of the site, dedicated to Fujitsu-Siemens´ Loox PDA, FirstLoox, revealed some details of the next generation Pocket Loox 610. Well, there will be two versions of the new Loox 610 — one with integrated Bluetooth (Pocket Loox 610 BT) and one with both Bluetooth and WiFi (802.11b) — Pocket Loox 610 BT/WLAN. All the other specifications of the models are the same:
OCZ Technology unveiled Copper BGA Ramsinks, that are to be used for cooling down BGA memory and other small system components. OCZ Copper BGA Ramsinks will be shipping in packs of four and include thermal tape. Dimensions of the solution 16x13x9mm
The solution has been designed to provide optimal heat dissipation when used on video card memory and small system components. We guess that such heat dissipators will be widely used by overclockers.
