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.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
