Snip: The new 15" Intel-based Mac Book Pro is a faithful and aggressive continuation of the record breaking and standard-setting PowerBook line of Apple laptops first introduced to the world in 1991. Externally, the MacBook Pro and the 2003-2006 PowerBook models are very similar – practically identical to the untrained eye. Internally, the MacBook pro is geared like a twin-turbo roadster that leaves the trusty PowerBook in the dust. Full review @ Digital Trends
Snip: The socket AM2 Athlon64 processor platform should go a long way to stimulating the DDR-2 memory industry, because key to the AM2’s survival will be access to low latency DDR-2 parts. Up until now that’s been something of an oxymoron… companies like Corsair, Patriot Memory, OCZ, and Buffalo Technology have already begun releasing quick low latency DDR-2, much of it currently based on Micron Rev.E DRAM.

Snip: The new Watercooling Symphony mini from Thermaltake arrived Technnic3D. Three 120mm Fans instead of five in the Symphony. How is the achievement? Full review @ Technic3D?(ger)
Snip: At the farthest back point in the South Hall you?ll find Microsoft?s enormous booth that spans almost a half of a football field and featuring hundreds of playable Xbox 360s. For a company as big as they are, they don?t skimp when it comes to making an unforgettable presence on the showfloor, and they have certainly done so. The entire back half of the booth is a two-story set of rooms for press and presentations that is just about as well constructed as an apartment building (all to be torn down after 3 days of excitement). Check out the Microsoft booth tour in its gigantic elegance. Full review @ ThinkGaming
Snip:?The Armor Junior is yet another great case from Thermaltake, and Armor Senior should be proud of his little fella. While the overall styling is taken straight from the original, full size Armor case, there are many special touches and improvements that make the Junior appealing.? While the full size Armor case is great for a stationary system, the compact design of the Armor Junior is ideal for use with a system that travels to LAN parties (or anywhere else for that matter).

According to xbitlabs, a 7600 class graphics card is coming to AGP and has been indirectly confirmed by Nvidia. They go on to mention that Nvidia’s latest forceware 91.28 drivers has support for an AGP 7600GS, which goes a long way to confirm that this is indeed true. "The GeForce 7600 GS graphics processor has 12 pixel shader units, 5 vertex shader units, is clocked at 400MHz and comes with 256MB of 128-bit 800MHz GDDR3 memory. Specifications of the model 7600 GS for AGP 8x are unclear. In addition to the GeForce 7600 GS for AGP, the new beta ForceWare drivers support some other unannounced products, such as the GeForce 7500 LE for PCI Express, GeForce 6800 XT/XE/LE for AGP and PCI Express as well as GeForce 7800 GS for PCI Express."
