TechwareLabs :AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition CPU-Processor @ techwarelabs.com
[May-03-11] (0 Comments)

Today AMD releases the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition into the market place. This speed bump before the launch of Llano reaches greater than 4GHz on air and achieves excellent performance. We take a look at what could be one of the last Deneb powered AM3 cores to hit the market from AMD.

AMD Athlon X2 II 265 Processor/CPU @ techwarelabs.com
[Oct-01-10] (0 Comments)

AMD has released a full line of new processors on September, 21st 2010 which filled the a few spots in the AMD Processor line. One of these processors is the Athlon II 265 X2 which runs at 3.3GHz. The Athlon II 265 has an L2 Cache to the total of 1MB per core (total of 2MB of L2 Cache) to give a bump in speed over previous Athlon II processors.

Western Digital SATA 6Gb/sec 1TB Caviar Black (WD1002FAEX) @ pcper.com
[Feb-15-10] (0 Comments)

The WD1002FAEX joins a long line of excellent drives from WesternDigital, and seems to be as good a time as any for bumping up the interfacethroughput. Hopefully the push to SATA 6Gb/sec will help drive adoption ofthis new standard across the rest of the industry. That said, it didlittle to boost performance of this new drive. We may see betterimprovements down the road, but we are currently stuck with third partycontrollers for this speed grade.

AMD Phenom II X4 910e 2.6GHz 65W TDP Processor @ legitreviews.com
[Jan-25-10] (0 Comments)

The AMD Phenom II 910e is a Quad-core processor that features the Deneb core. The predecessor to the Phenom II 910e was the 905e. The Phenom II 905e has the same bus speed as the Phenom II 910e, but the multiplier was x12.5 while the Phenom II 910e has a x13 multiplier. That small bump in the multiplier is what accounts for the 100MHz difference in the two processors. That means that the AMD Phenom II X4 910e has a final clock frequency of 2.6GHz with 2MB of L2 and 6MB of L3 cache. Not bad specifications for a processor that has a TDP that is nearly half the Wattage used on other popular Phenom II X4 processors!

ECS, eVGA, Gigabyte, MSI P55 Motherboard Roundup @ legitreviews.com
[Dec-21-09] (0 Comments)

Present for this review are products from ECS, EVGA, Gigabyte, and MSI. ECS represents the budget option with their P55H-A which has a budget price but enthusiast features. MSI steps up the price with their P55-GD65 which sits closer to the average price, quality and feature-set for a P55 motherboard. EVGA bumps the price up into the enthusiast price-range while offering a board geared primarily towards overclocking enthusiasts in the EVGA P55 FTW. Finally, Gigabyte sits on top with price and features and is the only board to feature USB3.0 and SATA-III connectivity with the P55A-UD6 motherboard.

Gigabyte GTX 260 Core 216 Super Overclock Video Card @ legitreviews.com
[Oct-28-09] (0 Comments)

Today we get our first ever look at a video card from Gigabyte, the GTX 260 Core 216 Super Overclock. Thatís a mouthful, but I suppose we have NVIDIA to thank for that! This video card from Gigabyte features the wildly popular GTX 260 core 216 GPU, but does fine screening of the cores to get the very best. These top bin chips are then mated to a PCB that features an extra 2 ounces of copper on the PCB, along with high quality voltage regulators, to bring you the highest clocked GTX 260 core 216 of any manufacturer. The standard core clock of 576MHz has been bumped up to 680MHz, which is an 18% frequency boost over the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 reference design. With clock speeds like this you can expect 3% better performance than standard GTX 275 graphics cards...

AMD Radeon HD 5870 Triple CrossFireX Performance Testing @ pcper.com
[Oct-17-09] (0 Comments)

Getting past the pure joy of seeing these games run this fast, weneed to decide how valuable all of this scaling is to gamers in terms ofcost, etc. In all of my testing (with one exception) the benefits ofmoving from single Radeon HD 5870 to a pair of cards in CrossFireoutweighed the move from two cards to three in terms of price/performanceresults. In other words, the value of the second card was higher than thethird in terms of increasing the performance of the gaming system as awhole. Take HAWX as an example:at 2560x1600 the 1->2 card scaling wasover 70% while the 2->3 card scaling was about 53%. While that is still anice bump in performance (in many cases seeing 50% scaling on any multi-GPUconfiguration would be good news) obviously the third card follows the lawsof diminishing returns.

ASUS Crosshair III Formula Motherboard @ legitreviews.com
[Aug-26-09] (0 Comments)

The ASUS Crosshair III Formula motherboard essentially takes the 790FX M4A79T-Deluxe PCB and tweaks it a bit while adding additional features and bumping the quality in the components. Like all Republic of Gamer boards the Crosshair III Formula comes with an add-in audio module providing cleaner sound. There is also the LCD Poster which provides diagnostic information and a menu for browsing through the options provided in TweakIt. TweakIt is a hardware supported overclocking feature that lets you adjust all the BIOS settings on the fly. This can help all overclockers push their systems to the edge of stability. Before we dig into the board images and tests here's a list of the features on the board...

TechwareLabs s the AMD Phenom II 965 Black Edition Quad Core Processor @ techwarelabs.com
[Aug-13-09] (0 Comments)

With each new release from AMD they are able to fine tune their processors a bit more than before. We are talking about more than just adding a few exta clock cycles or a bump in speed. There are more subtle changes that result in a product that meets consumers needs much better. AMD has not forgotten that many of their consumers are overclockers and we will be of course taking a look at how the newly announced Phenom II 965 Black Edition does in the overclocking arena but first lets take a look at the shiny new CPU.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Processor @ legitreviews.com
[Jun-01-09] (0 Comments)

The AMD Phenom II X5 955 Black Edition processor is more than a speed bump as it brings Socket AM3 support to the flagship AMD desktop processor. The extra 200MHz is a nice touch though, as at 3.2GHz the Phenom II is more competitive with the Intel Core 2 quad-core processors. The Intel Core i7 series of processors still leads over the Phenom II X4 955 in all the benchmarks, but it costs hundreds more to build a platform using a Core i7 versus a Phenom II...

Hardware Leaderboard @ pcper.com
[May-30-09] (0 Comments)

Our Mid-Range Leaderboard still the Intel Core i7-920 processor, itis a hard value to beat! The slowest part on this system, GeForce 9800 GTX+has been dumped, we have replaced it with an overclocked BFG GTX 260 whichonly brings the system price up by $26. With that extra graphics power, andthe temptation of SLI, it seems best to bump the PSU up a bit and theAnitec TruePower 750W certainly fits that role perfectly.

PowerColor HD 4890 PCS 1 GB @ techpowerup.com
[May-01-09] (0 Comments)

PowerColor is one of the first board partners to release an overclocked, custom designed HD 4890. Instead of the AMD reference cooler a solution from Zerotherm is used. The clock speeds have also been bumped to 950 MHz core and 1100 MHz memory. Due to their improved PCB, PowerColor has managed to position their HD 4890 PCS at the price that normal reference cards go for:$249.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 260+ OC Graphics Card @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-27-09] (0 Comments)

Today we're looking at Galaxy's version of the GTX 260+ and it carries everything you want for a card that has been out for a while; a pretty mean looking cooler and an overclock that is going to give us a bump in performance. Today weíll be taking the time to see how the GTX 260+ from Galaxy we have here goes up against another Galaxy card, the GTS 250 and the current top single GPU card from ATI, the HD 4870, which is due to be replaced by the HD 4890 very soon.

Hardware Leaderboard Update @ pcper.com
[Nov-16-08] (0 Comments)

The Dream Leaderboard gets the Core i7-965 Extreme Edition processorselling for just over $1000 as it comes with fully unlocked overclockingsupport and the top speed of 3.2 GHz stock. I chose the Gigabyte EX58-UD5motherboard for this system mostly due to the fact that it was the ONLYboard showing up when I made this update, though it is still a featurepacked and competent solution. The only other change here was to the memorysystem that gets a bump up from 4GB to 6GB thanks to the triple-channelmemory controller integrated on the CPU.

First Look:Nvidia MCP7a GeForce 9 series mGPU @ bit-tech.net
[Oct-15-08] (0 Comments)

*/As we said, Nvidia's chipset is built on the 65nm TSMC process but what bumping material it uses we are unsure. Nvidia has already admitted problems with its mobile products, but recently HP has since issued specific warranty replacements for slimline desktop PCs that exclusively contain Nvidia integrated graphics products. Kept properly cool, there should be absolutely no problem unless you're one of the few who want to stuff one of these boards into a cramped HTPC setup with very little airflow to be as quiet and low profile as possible. In that situation, we'd advise being wary, but outside of this we doubt anyone else will ever have a problem.

Palit Radeon HD 4850 Sonic @ bit-tech.net
[Oct-14-08] (0 Comments)

*/We have to say we really like the Palit Radeon HD 4850 Sonic - the cooling solution performs incredibly well and the PCB redesign has enabled Palit to keep the price of this card down at around £120 (inc. VAT), which makes it an attractive proposition considering the factory overclock. Of course, it would have been nice of Palit to overclock the memory a big further, but we understand why it hasn't done this - all of the Radeon HD 4850s we've seen have been able to run at clock speeds in excess of 685MHz, but memory is a little harder to guarantee to certain clock speeds without bumping the price up.

ASUS GeForce GTX 280 TOP Graphics Card @ tweaktown.com
[Aug-25-08] (0 Comments)

It was only going to be a matter of time Ďtill ASUS strapped some mean clocks onto the GTX 280 and put it under its TOP naming scheme. Well, that day has come and itís time to see what happens when the GTX 280 gets, for the most part, an unnecessary but much loved speed bump.The tumbling GTX 280 prices over the past few weeks make the card more and more affordable for people wanting to get a top gaming experience. While we all know that for the most part the new AMD HD 4870 X2 is the faster single card on the market, NVIDIA still hold the crown of the fastest single cored card.

Sapphire HD 4850 Toxic 512 MB @ techpowerup.com
[Aug-05-08] (0 Comments)

Sapphire's new HD 4850 Toxic graphics card comes with a preinstalled Zalman VF-900 GPU cooler that greatly reduces the operating temperature of the card. Also the operating frequencies have been bumped quite a bit, with some additional overclocking potential left in the card.

Hardware Leaderboard Update @ pcper.com
[Jul-24-08] (0 Comments)

What changes did we implement this time around? First, we bumpedthe Q9300 processor up to a Q9550 and changed from a 780i SLI motherboard toan ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard based on the Intel X48 chipset. Why didwe move away from the NVIDIA chipset? The answer is in our GPU - we wentwith the Radeon HD 4870 512MB cards (a pair in CrossFire to be exact)bringing AMD back into the High End System Leaderboard for the first time inquite some time. We also updated to the VelociRaptor hard drive and XonarD2X PCIe sound card.

GTX 280 ForceWare 177.35 Performance @ tweaktown.com
[Jun-19-08] (0 Comments)

We figured that graphs speak louder than words, so today we took the time to test the new drivers under XP and Vista across a range of benchmarks on our ZOTAC GTX 280. Iíve decided that although there are new Catalyst drivers available for me to test, people would be more excited to see what NVIDIA can do to (hopefully) squeeze more performance out of the GTX 200 cards. While a lot of sites have loved the GTX 200 series of cards, they donít seem to completely understand whatís going on in the AMD camp. I can honestly say that NVIDIA need the GTX 280 to get a speed bump, or gamers may be flocking to AMD for their graphics card sooner rather than later.

ASUS EN8800GT 1GB Graphics Card @ tweaktown.com
[Apr-18-08] (0 Comments)

You did your research and you've discovered that the 8800GT con tinues to be one of the best value for money cards when it comes to good mid-range performance. The thing is, you wouldn't mind kicking it up a notch in the memory department if you had the choice. Well, we might have found the card for you here today. ASUS has recently released an 8800GT that is packing 1GB of GDDR3 memory. However, it's n ot uncommon for a bump in memory to do nothing more than make you feel a bit better about your system. Really, there's only one way to find out if the extra memory does anything for your gaming experience, and that is to run it through a multitude of tests.

CoolIT Systems Pure CPU Cooler @ legitreviews.com
[Apr-03-08] (0 Comments)

With the PURE being a sealed system it is ok for the fact that it is maintenance free. The downside is that it is not expandable. Another downside is that air that is trapped in the system is there forever. The unit I tested had some air trapped in it. It took a good 3 days of it sit ting upright to stop gurgling. After that it was good to go, just as long as I didn't bump the case or disturb the cooler in any way...

TWM Performance Complete Short Shifter Kit @ aphnetworks.com
[Apr-01-08] (0 Comments)

It's been quite a while since APH Networks, obviously the most well known highly dedicated car enthusiast website, took a look at what we've originated from -- car reviewing. Lately we've gotten a little off track and got into all those computer products for some odd reason. But in all seriousness, take a look out on the streets. Here in North America, cars are so common, it's not even funny. From 20 year old Buick sedans to the latest Acura CUVs, and then *gasp* there's a high school kid driving their ricer that's so low they can barely make it over a speed bump, wing so big and heavy that turned their car's weight distribution into 40/60, decals on the side of their car from dozens of companies that they don't even own parts from, and tinted windows that resemble those of an opaque black wall. Well here's one for you:Performance modifications are more practical than visual modifications. Driving a standard transmission (Or manual transmission, stick shift, or whatever you want to call it) myself, there's all to one point that makes it so unique and fun to drive:The combination of the third pedal and the gearstick. Sitting in a few real performance vehicles lately, I wasn't all in for their fuel economy, but their short throw manual really intrigued me. Moving back to my own car, here's a cheap, easy do-it-yourself modification that makes your shifting all that much fun -- the complete short shifter kit from TWM Performance. Adding onto that, we also had an aftermarket weighted shift knob to go along with it. Let's see how it improves your driving experience.

Next up in our series of iPhone case reviews is the OtterBox for iPhoneDefender Series. OtterBox is well-known for offering extremely rugged, oftenwaterproof cases for everything from laptops to smart phones, PDAs andiPods. The Defender Series is touted as having bump, drop, and dustprotection, and, while not waterproof, will provide protection against rainand other precipitation. Otterbox also has an Armor series for the iPhone,which is even more rugged:completely waterproof, dust-proof, anddrop-proof.

Gigabyte HD 2600 Pro 512MB @ thetechlounge.com
[Jan-08-08] (0 Comments)

I've said before that the HD 2600 Pro should be passed over in favor of theXT for anyone who wants to play video games, or the HD 2400 XT for peoplejust interested in having a discrete graphics card without all that gamingmalarkey. But then, Gigabyte has put together a compelling package with theHD 2600 Pro. A memory bump to 512MB, a clockspeed bump of 5%, passivecooling, component and S-Video out, and Neverwinter Nights 2-a popularsequel by a big developer.

OCZ 8GB ATV Flash Drive @ tcmagazine.com
[Dec-13-07] (0 Comments)

Overall the bumpy road that the ATV has to permanently run on has turned it into a solid drive and a nice change in attitude for OCZ. Apar t from the low write speeds the 8GB ATV tested today offers pretty much a nything you=E2=80=99ll need from a mainstream flash drive and if this wil l be coupled with a price tag that is reasonably lower than that of the V oyager, OCZ will have a best seller on its hands.

[Dec-05-07] (0 Comments)

I have been around for a while, and when Western Digital decided tosend me their 500 GB hard drive; I drooled.Then Seagate came out with their 750 GB drive; I got goose bumps. Now,Hitachi decided to realign my particles with their 1TB SATA II hard disk drive (HDS721010KLA330); man thisthing smells good. Yeah, if you didn't catch that, I said 1TB... that's 1000GB!

Intel Beats AMD to Lead-Free Processors @ legitreviews.com
[Oct-24-07] (0 Comments)

Now that the flip-chip bump solder points that used to contain lead have been replaced with a copper column and lead-free solder the pro cessors are more environmentally friendly, but this does come at a cost. The melting point of lead-tin is 183C, whereas the melting point of lead- free solders is greater than 220C. This means increased stress on the fli p-chip package and more power consumption since the convection ovens need their baking temperatures increased. To manage the increased stress and survive the higher process temperatures, Intel reengineered many parts of the processor...

OCZ has become a preferred vendor because of its Extended VoltageProtection warranty that covers the memory even if the memory voltage isbumped higher than stock. The OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Reaper HPC Edition is readyto push any system that can handle the 1066MHz modules, but can it handlebeing pushed back?

[News] Intel E6850 3.0GHz Core 2 Duo 1333FSB CPU @ virtual-hideout.net
[Sep-01-07] (0 Comments)

Well, for years after that I was a true diehard AMD fan. That is,until the tides recently turned and the tsunami of C2D arrived on theshores. Recently, Intel has been dominating the processor scene with its newline of Core 2 Duo's. Well, once again Intel has stepped up to the plate byliterally stepping up the FSB from 1066 to 1333. This new line of CPU's havea model of Exx50 which represents the 1333FSB. This bump on the CPU will nowmatch the Front Side Bus of some newer motherboards. The new processor underthe microscope is the new Intel Core 2 Duo E6850, which is 3.0GHz, has 4mbof cache, and is using the 1333MHz system bus. With all these numbersfloating around in my head, I just can't wait to test the processor.

[Jul-16-07] (0 Comments)

=93It took a small voltage bump to 1.45V in the BIOS to hit 3.73GHz. Toachieve this, we raised the FSB to 466MHz and dropped the multiplier to X8.Once we hit our highest, stable clock speed, we were surprised how stablethings were even with a relatively low cost standard HSF cooler. We used anArtic Cooling Freezer 7 cooler to achieve these results.=94

Logitech diNovo Edge Keyboard @ xyzcomputing.com
[Feb-16-07] (0 Comments)

The diNovo Edge is actually the third keyboard in the diNovo line. After the first one got so much attention Logitech decided to make some tweaks to it and address a few of the problems, like the poorly chosen mouse, and released a follow-up product. The diNovo Media Desktop Laser changed the color and bumped up the price by $50, but also upgraded to a MX Laser mouse and Bluetooth connectivity. The Edge is the first diNovo keyboard to be part of Logitech's Advanced Peripherals line. These are high-end components whose goal is to match style with serious performance. This by itself does not tell us much about the keyboard, but we know that is has been promoted to the same category of items as Logitech's acclaimed Z-10 speakers and MX Revolution mouse.

OCZ PC2-6400 Special Ops Edition Urban Elite 2GB Kit @ bigbruin.com
[Oct-05-06] (0 Comments)

Before we get to benchmarking, let's see how well the OCZ Special Ops Edition Urban Elite DDR2-800 can be overclocked. I would not consider myself an expert overclocker, and might expect more experienced overclockers to get better results that I did, but things went pretty well, anyway. Everest was reporting the memory operating at 1020MHz DDR2. 220MHz faster than the rated speeds isn't a bad bump, and it equates to a 27.5% increase!

What becomes evident is the number of compromises that has to be made both internally and externally. Uday Phadke, Chairman of Team Warrior explains that customers are moving towards personal navigation devices (PNAs) rather than PDAs which have GPS functionality built on top.

ATI Radeon X1950XTX CrossFire @ legitreviews.com
[Aug-24-06] (0 Comments)

ATI's CrossFire gets a nice bump in performance with the X1950 and is a blazing fast system, but in our testing is still not enough to lay claim to the fastest multi-GPU system. The X1950 CrossFire builds upon the performance of X1900 CrossFire, adds better cooling, and lowers power consumption. It's a smoking fast solution proving that it's all about hot, nasty, bad ass speed.

Overclocking the AMD A64 4200+ AM2 Processor @ legitreviews.com
[Aug-08-06] (0 Comments)

The AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ AM2 processor comes set to run at 1.35 Volts and to go higher than 2.76GHz we need to increase the voltage running to the processor. To do this we just need to go to the system voltage menu in the BIOS and increase the voltage from 'auto' to whatever Voltage you like. The BIOS cautions going over 1.65V and that's not a concern since we just to bump it up to 1.55V to reach 3.0GHz on our processor...

AMD's Athlon 64 FX-60 Dual Core Processor @ pcper.com
[Jan-10-06] (0 Comments)

The performance of the new FX-60 processor is where I had expectedit would fall; with a 200 MHz speed bump over the Athlon X2 4800+, modestperformance gains were all we were really going to see. Having said that,it doesn't make the numbers and results we have shown here any lessimpressive. The X2 4800+ processor was the dominant force in nearly all ofour benchmarks before this release (with the exception of gaming) and anyhead room the Intel Pentium XE 955 gained last week is pretty much alreadyout the window with the FX-60.

Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 955 & Intel 975X Express Chipset @ viperlair.com
[Dec-27-05] (0 Comments)

What we will be getting today is a little bump but nothing revolutionary. For those of you following Intel closely these past 18 months, there has not been all that much for enthusiasts to get terribly excited about. Seems that Intel felt quite the same way as their last few launches have fallen on Sundays. At least it isn't Sunday today, but it looks like enthusiasts will still need to wait until there's really something to have them standup and take notice.

Antec Phantom 500 Power Supply @ xyzcomputing.com
[Aug-23-05] (0 Comments)

The fact that computers must operate in close proximity to people means that any sound they produce is bothersome and extraneous. As quiet computing has grown from a hobby of a few people to a major part of the industry, the number and quality of the available quiet/silent parts has increased greatly. This review will be taking a look at Antec's new Phantom 500 power supply unit. Its predecessor, the Phantom 350, has been a huge hit for Antec and has become the benchmark for fanless power supplies. The Phantom 500 has been bumped up from 350W to 500W and also has a number of other interesting changes, the most important of which is the addition of a fan. This means this power supply is no longer fanless but is Antec has still labeled it as silent.

At Low Quality, texture resolution is scaled down to 1/16th of the original texture in some cases. The filtering is only bi-linear, and there's no bump mapping or dynamic lighting. You can forget about shadows too! There's also severe cutbacks on vegetation and terrain detail.

Hyundai Imagequest L90D+ Review @ mistix.co.uk
[May-21-05] (0 Comments)

Buying a TFT is a personal affair, purchasing the right one is like jumping into a wasps nest, get the honey or be stung. Being stung is a very common occurance, getting the right product for your needs is not an easy choice You may well decide to bump up the budget to avoid cheaper models, and hopefully avoid the rubbish. For our next review, we will be taking a dedicated look at the L90D+ manufactured by Hyundai Imagequest.

Leadtek PX6600GT TDH PCI-E Video Card Review @ GruntVillE
[Mar-29-05] (0 Comments)

The Leadtek was absolutely a blast. I started out by moderately overclocking the core and memory; I bumped the core up 20MHz and the memory up 20 MHz. This was of course, no great feat but I must say I was happy to see it had worked. I decided to go for some gusto and bumped the core up to 550MHz and the memory up to 1100MHz. Thatís a 50MHz bump on the core and 100MHz on the memory. I just knew it was wishful thinking but decided to go for it anyway. Alas, the card had no issues or artifacts. I pushed the core to 575 and the memory to 1200 and this is when I started noticing some uh ohís. I dropped the core to 573 and left the memory alone and had no issues.

Pentium M 755 on the Desktop - DFI's 855GME Motherboard @ PC Perspective
[Mar-24-05] (0 Comments)

To say that I was surprised by the results would be a lie -- a little birdie at DFI tipped me off. ;-) But I was still amazed when I saw it happen on my test bench first hand. The performance of the Pentium 755 processor at the default 2.0 GHz is nothing to sneeze at, but when we easily bumped the processor to 2.4 GHz with a single modification in the BIOS, the CPU flat-out ran! In our gaming tests we saw the processor out pace the entire suite of Pentium 4 and Extreme Edition processors, and compete very well with the highest end Atlon 64 and FX processors.

BTX Form Factor Exposed @ pcstats.com
[Jan-12-05] (0 Comments)

Weren't we all supposed to be using BTX by now? When this radical form-factor change for motherboards and PC cases was first proposed by Intel in 2003, its introduction was supposed to coincide with the birth of the 'Alderwood' and 'Grantsdale' chipsets we now know as the Intel 915P and 925X. Instead, the standard took until just recently to get off the ground with manufacturers in Taiwan, resulting in Intel bumping the official introduction of the BTX form factor to their upcoming chipset generation, 'Glenwood' and 'Lakeport.'

Logisys Clear Acrylic 2.1 Gaming Speakers @ Twisted Mods
[Jun-04-04] (0 Comments)

The clarity of the sound, even at high volumes, was remarkable when bumping music on my PC. It even comes with an extra cable to hook the speakers up to a TV or DVD player which is a very nice feature. I didnít like the directional sound coming out of the holes in the satellite speakers, the bandpass subwoofer enclosure, size of the amp/controller (being too big for desk), and absence of headphone jack on the front of the controller.

Tom Bihn Smart Alec and Monolith Computer Bags Review @ PCstats
[Feb-17-04] (0 Comments)

Let's face it, most of us are pretty cheap and tend to use whatever the store is 'giving away' at the time we bought our "precious...." (notebook that is). These default standard computer bags tend to be pleather, pretty utilitarian, and the equivalent of the 1980's brown Columbo trench coat. In other words, they get the job done but you end up looking like just another computer geek toting around a 20lb black rectangular bag make from plastic cows that don't mooo. People, there are better options out there; bags that will protect a notebook from bumps, hold more wires and cables, and frankly look a damn-sight cooler. The Tom Bihn Smart Alec and Monolith bags are just two such options. The "Smart Alec" is the knapsack, and the "Monolith" is the specially designed semi-soft shell case that snugly protects a notebook inside the cavernous bay of the former.
