HP Rolls Out Enhanced 'All-in-One' Storage System for SMBs Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version 
Friday, April 13 2007 @ 01:20 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

This will come as no surprise to anybody following the data storage market: Hewlett-Packard is focusing a substantial corporate effort to win the small-to-medium business sector over to its new, simplified products.

Tuesday, April 03 2007 @ 02:29 PM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Megahertz will take you only so far. Desktop processors topped the 1GHz mark in 2000, 2GHz in 2001, and 3GHz in 2002. Nearly five years later, we've yet to see a chip leave the factory clocked at 4GHz. Power demands and heat concerns meant that AMD and Intel couldn't simply keep ramping up clock speeds with each new CPU generation without running into design obstacles with desktops and, especially, with notebooks.
