Intel Talks Canoe Lake Platform and Oak Trail CPUs at Computex

From DailyTech: Intel has bemoaned the fact that netbooks were not as profitable for it or computer makers for a while now. Despite the fact that the company would rather sell more expensive Core-based CPUs for full notebooks, the netbook market has boomed and Intel has offered a steady stream of new hardware to support the category.

Apex MW-107 Review (Page 1 of 4)

I am not going to pretend I am an expert in the world of mini-ITX systems. Prior to writing and editing a good series of such reviews here at APH Networks for the past few weeks (And with many more to come), I certainly did not know there was so much I needed to learn! It is especially interesting to note how different reviewing is in the mITX realm, as compared to my usual role in evaluating desktop-standard performance components. This is still the case even when small things like power supplies are concerned: the Jetway NC96FL-510-LF motherboard I reviewed last week features a built in DC to DC converter to eliminate the need of an ATX or ATX compatible power supply -- it is especially useful to save room and reduce complexity. But there are also boards that take standard ATX power input for wider compatibility. Then it comes to the chassis in which you want to install the motherboard. We have the Lian-Li PC-Q07 that takes standard components at the expense of larger physical size, the Thermaltake Element Q which features a built in SFX power supply to save room, and ultra compact cases such as the Apex MW-107 we are reviewing today that uses an external power adapter with an internal DC to DC converter for users who want a really compact system with maximum compatibility. All of this sounds great -- but how well does the Apex MW-107 step up in real life? We took the liberty to find out all the answers for you today.
