Alienware’s Sentia 3200′s Instant-On Goodness

By David Ponce

Alienware, in my mind, equates with unjustifiable expense. But hell, for some people, having the word “Alien” on their gear is worth paying the premium, I guess. That’s not to say the company doesn’t make fine products. Take this, the lovely Sentia m3200.

It’s aimed at users who value portability, weighing in at 4lbs. But that’s not why I find it interesting. I like the Instant-On functionality.

You can immediately access videos, music, digital photos and other multimedia content while conserving battery life on your notebook. How does this work? You instantly boot into a multimedia interface by pushing the instant-on button when the entire system is off. This bypasses loading Windows on the notebook and provides a dedicated environment for multimedia functions while conserving critical battery power.

Yeah, saving two or three minutes of Windows bootup time certainly sounds exciting to me.

Other features include:
-12.1 inch widescreen LCD with ClearView technology
- 4 hour battery life
- Integrated 4 in 1 media card reader
- 802.11a/b/g wireless support

They’re starting at, amazingly enough, $1000. More at the Alienware website. Story VIA Mobilewhack.

Alienware’s Entry Into The MP3 Player Scene


By David Ponce

You know, as time goes by, I have less and less to say about MP3 players. Unless of course, we talk about the iPod nano (if you haven’t heard about it by now, go hide under a rock, you don’t deserve to be behind a computer). This time, however, we won’t. There are plenty of places to go for nano news.

No, instead I bring you a puffy little offering from overpriced hardware vendor Alienware. It’s the extravagantly named “CE > IV”. Flash based, it will come in 512 or 1gig versions and has perhaps two functions that differentiate from everyone else (other than the Alienware brand and ambiguous styling):

First digital audio player in the United States to feature SRS WOW HD™, which provides a treble control for a cleaner crisper listening experience of high frequency sounds. WOW HD also features improved TruBass technology, providing an even richer, more superior bass sound enhancement to digitally compressed music, even through the smallest of ear buds!

It’s also packaged with special Alienware noise-reduction earbuds that filter out unwanted background noise and lets you crank up the music without disrupting those around you.

Price is a jelly-filled humpback turtle dancing the funky chicken.

Deal Of The Day: 77% Off On HTC Evo 3D

By David Ponce

As far as deals go, some are large and some are little. Like yesterday’s. But every little dollar counts, all the more so when you’re looking at a whopping $538 off of a retail, unsubsidized price. Sure, Sprint will give you the HTC Evo 3D for $199 on two-year contract, but today’s deal brings it even lower than that, at $162, still of course with a two-year activation. For this sum you get glasses-free 3D, with two cameras so that you can shoot your own 3D content. Specs-wise, the Evo 3D packs a “dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon CPU, 4.3″ 540 x 960 Super LCD 3D display, dual 5MP rear cameras to capture in 3D (1.3MP front), 3G/4G connectivity and hotspot capability, Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS with HTC Sense UI, 1GB built-in memory expandable via microSD, and more.”

This deal is on until June 30th.

Ostendo Curved Monitor Now Available

By Colin Ackerman

That sweet looking curvy display we first saw at CES back in 2008 is finally available to consumers with too much money to spend, only about a year late. For a mere $6500, you can be the proud owner of the Ostendo CRVD, a curved 43″ 2880 x 900 quad-DLP rear projection monitor. Ostendo says that most of the units have been sold to the military for simulators and stuff, but this is what it’s really for:
