Dell Inspiron 3421 with 8GB RAM available for just ₹37,198

September 10, 2013 |

The Inspiron range of laptops from Dell is one of the most popular series and is probably of the few ranges which not only suffices for home use, but also does well for office use as well.

If you are after a laptop with high specifications and specifically keen on getting a laptop that has large amount of RAM check out the Dell Inspiron 3421 available on eBay for just over ₹37,000. The Inspiron 3421 is definitely a laptop targeted towards gamers but, it would serve well for graphics professionals as well.

This laptop is powered by the third generation Intel Core i5 processor capable of speeds of up to 2.7Ghz, 8GB RAM, 750GB hard drive, 2GB of dedicated Nvidia GT730 Graphics card and it comes with 1 year manufacturer warranty. However, there is a catch here as it has Ubuntu pre-installed and doesn’t come with any Windows operating system. But, considering the price tag, we believe this is a very good deal.

Some of the other features of the laptop are Bluetooth, 2xUSB 3.0, 1xUSB 2.0, Wi-Fi, 1-megapixel camera for video conferencing among others.

Low cost iPhone spotted next to iPhone 5

July 22, 2013 |

A Japanese magazine has leaked what seems to be picture of the low cost iPhone next to iPhone 5 – seemingly the back plate rather than the actual phone.

From the looks of it the low cost iPhone seems to be having the same height as that of the iPhone 5 – the visible differences being the volume rocker and the mute switches as they appear oblong on the low cost iPhone as compared to circular ones in iPhone 5.

Other photos reveal that the screw hole layout on the new iPhone is more or less similar to that of the iPhone 5 indicating that the iPhone 5S and the cheaper variant may be having the same logic board design.

We are not sure how authentic these pictures are but, from the looks of it and the recent leaks that are coming our way, chances are this could be the real deal. Sill, as with all other Apple rumours, we advise you to take these as a grain of salt.

BlackBerry unveiled a scaled down variant of its Q10 – the Q5 in May this year and has finally made it available in the Indian market for a price tag just shy of ₹25,000 mark.

The touchscreen + QWERTY combination is nothing new as Q10 already has the feature but, the Q5 has been targeted more towards the youth and working class community in India.

The rear camera can record 1080p videos at up to 30 fps while the front camera can record 720p videos. There is this Time Shift mode, which captures milliseconds before and after you click a photograph enabling you to correct the snap – for example open a subject’s eyes and go forward to fetch a perfect smile – and combine it all to create the perfect picture.

Further, the smartphone is loaded with Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 3G, and a microUSB port. The Q5 comes with 2,180 mAh battery and BlackBerry claims that the handset provides up to 12.5 hours of talk time with 14 days of standby time. The smartphone is available in black, white and red colours.
