New Asus Motherboards Support Intel's Sandy Bridge

The love for Intel's new Sandy Bridge processors shows no sign of slowing down at this year's CES. Taiwanese computer manufacturer Asus revealed updated motherboards and laptops Wednesday that fully support the new Intel CPUs.

Asus's new P8P67 and P8H67 Series motherboards will now make use of Intel's new P67 and H67 chipsets. The company also announced that a variety of their laptops have now been updated to support Intel's second generation 'Sandy Bridge' Core processors.

ASUS laptops in the G, K, N and VX7 Series will be those seeing the change, with the new Intel Core CPU's being offered to consumers at some point in the future. According to ASUS, making use of the new processors will see the updated range of laptops being able to handle up-to eight-way multitasking.

Despite the good news, specific dates, other specification changes and price alterations for these updated devices are still unknown.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
