Nvidia plans to produce Tegra II in 2010

Nvidia plans to start manufacturing the second version of Tegra next year

The first computers based on Nvidia's Tegra platform have yet to hit the market, but that company is already talking up its successor, Tegra II.

Tegra combines an Nvidia graphics processor with Arm processor cores, packing nearly all of the components required for a computer on a motherboard that's about the same size as a stick of gum.

Expected to hit the market before the end of this year, laptops based on Tegra will offer long battery life and the ability to play high-definition video and 3D graphics, Nvidia said.

Tegra II will improve on Tegra by adding more powerful processor cores and increasing memory speed while also extending battery life, Nvidia said.

The chips are set for production next year, it said.

Nvidia unveiled the first Tegra-based laptops at the Computex exhibition in Taipei on Tuesday.

These systems are expected to hit the market before the end of this year, priced at around US$199, it said.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
