Choosing Between Intel’s Ultrabooks vs. Apple’s MacBook Air

Choosing Between Intel’s Ultrabooks vs. Apple’s MacBook Air | iPhones and Apple Tech | Scoop.it

For those in the market for an ultra portable laptop, the names that come up again and again are the MacBook Air and the Ultrabook. While the MacBook Air is the single-most successful ultra portable laptop ever manufactured, the “Ultrabook” is neither a laptop manufacturer nor a model. Rather, it’s a trademarked term based on a set of specifications defined by Intel.

Unlike the MacBook Air, which is a single laptop model produced by Apple with 11.6” and 13.3” configurations, Ultrabooks are produced by most of the world’s major laptop manufacturers. This includes Dell, HP, Acer, Asus, Samsung, Lenovo, Toshiba, Gigabyte, and others.

What Ultrabooks all share in common is that they must meet a set of minimum size and performance requirements set out by Intel. The current generation of Ultrabooks must meet the following minimum requirements:

Ivy Bridge micro-architecture Intel Core Models
.72” maximum thickness for 13.3” or smaller models
.84” maximum thickness for 14” or larger models.
At least 5 Hours of battery life
USB 3.0
Must use SSD for booting up or as the primary storage medium
Must resume from hibernation within 7 seconds
Minimum storage transfer rate of 80 MB/S
Must use Intel’s software/firmware suite (Management Engine 8.0+, Anti-Theft, Identity protection)
Thus far, the Ultrabooks have failed to meet Intel’s lofty sales projections , whereas the MacBook Air has been a hit ever since its release. However, the current generation of Ultrabook offerings are a significant improvement on the first generation of Ultrabooks released at the beginning of the year.

Have the Ultrabooks finally caught up to the MacBook Air in terms of performance? Below, we’ll see how the latest generation of Ultrabooks fare when compared to Apple’s iconic MacBook Air.

Pricing & Value

Whether you’re shopping on a limited budget, or you’re simply looking to get the most bang for your buck, the Ultrabook proves to be the better choice hands down when it comes to price.

While the cost of an Air has fallen dramatically since their initial releasein 2008, Ultrabooks such as the Dell Inspiron 14z can be found for as little as $599. On the other hand, the entry-level 11.6” MacBook Air starts at $999, and the 13.3” version starts at $1,199. While the base specifications of the Inspiron 14z can’t compare to the basic 11”Air (it lacks full SSD storage for starters), the price makes the Dell offering accessible to the wide range of buyers who are unwilling to shell out $999 in the name of portability.

When it comes to straight up value, the Ultrabook – free of the premium Apple pricing model – also proves to be the better choice. For example, the $850 13.3” Toshiba Portege Z935 boasts similar specifications to the MacBook Air $1,199 13.3” MacBook Air, despite costing 30% less.

Winner: Ultrabook

Portability

There was a time when the MacBook Air was marketed as the thinnest laptop in the world. The current iterations of the Air – at 2.38 lbs and 2.96 lbs for the 11.6” and 13.3” versions respectively – still offer tremendous performance in a sleek, lightweight package. But the true king of portability at the moment is the Gigabyte X11; with an all-carbon fibre body that brings its total weight to a mere 2.14 lbs.

Furthermore, the X11 is not the only Ultrabook that can boast greater portability than the Air; the 13.3” Toshiba Portege Z935 weighs in at 2.4 lbs, while the 11.6” Acer Aspire weighs in at 2.2 lbs.

Winner: Ultrabook

Display

A mere 6 months ago, the MacBook Air boasted the highest quality display of any ultra portable laptop in the market. However, Apple’s decision to leave its famous Retina display out of the 2012 Air lineup has allowed the newest generation of Ultrabooks to catch up to, and indeed surpass the Air.

The 11.6” 2012 MacBook Air possesses a 1366 x 768 resolution, while the 13.3” model carries a 1440 x 900 resolution. However, the top Ultrabooks now feature full HD resolutions; the Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A/UX21A boasts a 1920 x 1080 resolution screen, as well as a brilliant IPS display.

Winner: Ultrabook

Graphics Performance

The integrated Intel HD Graphics 4000 solution employed by the Air is fine for browsing, casual use, and even light gaming, but those who want reasonable gaming performance from their ultra portable will be looking for something a little more powerful. A growing number of Ultrabooks offer the Nvidia GT600M series GPUs – a much better choice for those who want respectable gaming performance without sacrificing compactness or portability.

Winner: Ultrabook

Selection

Apple currently offers an 11.6” and a 13.3” version of its MacBook Air. Each is available in a “lite” version or an upgraded version with more processing power and Ram. On the other hand, there are over a dozen 2nd generation Ultrabooks on the market, with more on the way.

In the Ultrabook market, you can find an ultra-portable laptop with a 15” display in the Samsung Series 9, budget options that offer standard harddrives rather than full SSD storage, additional port offerings, and advanced graphics cards. When it comes to selection, the Ultrabook line gives buyers flexibility that the MacBook Air simply cannot.

Winner: Ultrabook

Style

Although style is subjective, no Ultrabook has yet come close to capturing the cult appeal of the Air. Whether it’s the beautiful sleek, silver design, or simply an attachment to the Apple aesthetic, the MacBook Air continues to stand out when it comes to style While Ultrabook manufacturers have produced some pretty slick designs of their own lately, Apple’s MacBook Air continues to stand in a class of its own.

Winner: MacBook Air

Which Should You Choose?
If you love the sleek, minimalist design of the Air, are devoted to the Mac OS, or even if you’re just a shameless Apple fan – and you don’t mind paying a premium for the Apple brand – then the MacBook Air is a solid ultra portable that will likely put a smile on your face. But for those seeking the best bang for their buck, more options, or who are shopping with a limited budget, the current generation Ultrabooks are the clear winners in this showdown.

INFOGRAPHIC: Nokia Compares the Lumia 920 with the iPhone 5

INFOGRAPHIC: Nokia Compares the Lumia 920 with the iPhone 5 | iPhones and Apple Tech | Scoop.it
With the release of the iPhone 5 and upcoming release of the Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 device, there is much buzz in the smartphone world. Many consumers are wondering which phone they should purchase. To make the best decision, it is necessary to explore both phones and the features each has to offer.
The most noticeable differences between the two phones is the build. Both are made with quality design. The iPhone 5 looks very much like the iPhone 4 and 4S, but it is slightly longer. Like its two predecessors, it is available in only black or white. The Nokia Lumia 920 boasts a beautiful polycarbonate unibody that is similar to the Lumia 900, except that it is glossy instead of including a matte finish. It is available in a variety of colors as well — yellow, red, black and gray.
The screens of the two devices are hugely different. The iPhone 5 has been graced with a four-inch screen, which is half an inch larger than iPhone 4 screen. The Retina display has been reconfigured to 1136 by 640 pixels to accommodate the larger screen. The Lumia 920, on the other hand, has a 4.5 inch screen that consists of PureMotion HD+ WXGA technology. Screen resolution measures in at 1280 by 768 pixels, and the Lumia 920 has the only screen that can be used not only with the user's fingertips but with fingernails and even gloves.
There are differences in the cameras in both phones as well. The iPhone 5 includes an 8 megapixel F2.4 camera that is a slight tweaking of the camera the 4S carried. The Lumia 920's camera is by far the most impressive on a smartphone as it includes Nokia's PureView technology. It is 8.7 megapixels and also includes Carl Zeiss lens technology. What all of this means is that if a person wants to take a photo, they can get a crystal clear shot even if their hand is shaking. The PureView technology also allows for great images in low light situations.
Charging is standard on the iPhone 5, which means a user will need a cable. With the Nokia Lumia 920, there is the option to charge via USB cable or even wirelessly as the phone has this technology built in due to near-field communications or NFC.

The Evolution of Mobile Web Apps: 6 Apps to Change Your Life

The Evolution of Mobile Web Apps: 6 Apps to Change Your Life | iPhones and Apple Tech | Scoop.it
By their very nature, mobile apps are created for progressive scalability. The mobile terrain experiences relentless change with business strategies incorporating apps, the mobile Web and HTML5, and how to utilize these technologies in the best way for consumers. Here are some dynamic apps that are doing just that, with a clear focus on progression and forward momentum.

Evernote

Evernote’s elephant logo suggests the creature’s memory superiority—a symbolic representation of Evernote’s purpose. The app is a useful tool in digitally extending the memory storage of the mere human mind. Record audio and snap pictures throughout your day to stores on the one-stop informational amalgamation app. Transfer your hoarding tendencies to the digital realm as you compile data from across the web—files, articles, images and everything else that the Internet may offer. Evernote provides a single convenient place that’s accessible from any device. From flight itineraries to doctor appointments, this revolutionary information organizational tool is sure to ease lives of the messy and scatterbrained.

Campfire

Gather ’round the digital campfire with this app that promotes communication and collaboration, regardless of physical distance. Campfire enables web-based group chat rooms between colleagues, clients or vendors—all password protected, of course. Upload images directly into the chat—GIF, JPG or PNG—to share visual information such as graphs and charts. Campfire compiles a transcript history so that you can read past conversations. Not only does this group chat app support text-based communication, but at any time—with a single click—you have the option invite your chat room to a voice conference call.

Drivetime Autos Car Search

Car dealerships’ former ‘buy here pay here‘ transactions have made way for new, modern buying options. Enter Drivetime Autos Car Search, a free app that’s a digital extension of the popular auto classified magazine. Search for your dream car by make, model, year and maximum price among an array of vehicles. A summary of each car details features, equipment and other minutiae. The Drivetime app takes advantage of maps to find nearby dealerships and contact information for your convenience.

Bump

Joining the effort in transferring absolutely every aspect of life into digital space, is Bump. The virtual business card app is useful for all sorts of digital communications including email. The star feature of the app, however, is the ability to “bump” mobile devices—the eponymous “bump” then instantaneously trades virtual business card contact information between parties for a rapid and convenient trade.

Prosper

Prosper is a crowdfunding app in the vein of Kickstarter. It’s “America’s leading peer-to-peer lending marketplace.” Instead of initiating an embarrassing request for funds from your family and friends, Prosper connects trusted, creditworthy borrowers with investors. Simply create an account and post your loan request. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have already been invested in budding businesses.

Square

A godsend for small businesses, Square—working in tandem with a credit card swiping device—offers a cheaper alternative to purchasing an expensive credit card processing machine. Simply plug a “swiper” into your headphone jack and boot up the Square app to conveniently maximize sales by adding credit cards thereby eliminating your antiquated “cash only” policy.

Better (The MVB-500 Biometric) Safe Than Sorry | iPhones and Apple Tech | Scoop.it

A guest post from our friend at DeanSafe

 

... So a few weeks ago I started looking for a way to safely store the gun in our master bedroom. I began surfing the web for safes, but the problem with most safes is that they have the old-school rotary locks. If I need the gun in an emergency there’s no way I’m going to be able to open that thing quickly or without turning on the lights. I was getting a little frustrated when I came across Dean Safe’s website (http://www.deansafe.com). They had a big selection of handgun safes that could work for next to my bed (or even under it.) ...

Sometimes I feel like a magician when I get behind a browser and do some searching with people. Immediately they whip out a notebook and start jotting down tips. Really, the secret to “searching smart” is all in Google’s search operators. If you remember middle school math, you will know an operator is basically a symbol that represents an operation, for instance – or + stands for subtract or add.
SO – As most of you know, Googles number one program which is Google search is basically a mathematical algorithm. Like any algorithm, you can apply different operators to it and it will spit out data based on what you type in. The most fundamental example of this would be this example:
