Tech Thursday #3: Dell Vostro 5460 Review, iPhone 6 Concept, BlackBerry Z30, ASUS New Line-up and more


We took a break last Thursday due to the Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebrations, but now back with another awesome bag of tech updates for the week. Much has transpired but hey, that’s the way tech goes! Read on and enjoy.

Reviewed: Dell Vostro 5460
We take the business-focused Dell Vostro 5460 for a run and it impresses us with its generous specifications and outstanding value-for-money. Our high-spec 3rd Generation Intel Core i5 version running Windows 8 only costs RM2,199. What surprised us though was its gaming prowess, thanks to its NVIDIA GeForce GT630M discrete graphics. Read all about this workhorse.

iPhone 6 concepts 
As with any upcoming iDevice, the rumour mills tend to go berserk with crazy theories, leaked photos and videos and more. The iPhone 5S and cheaper iPhone 5c sibling are no different. Some creative people at Dribble though, decided to let their imaginations run wild with some juicy iPhone 6 concepts – wraparound displays and all. Catch the sweetness.

BlackBerry Z30 leaked 
A leaked video has circulated showing a brand new BlackBerry Z30, formerly known as the A10 – a 5-inch beauty with a 1.7Ghz dual-core processor, 8MP main camera, 16GB storage and big battery. What’s interesting is the AT&T branding clearly on the back cover. Check out the post and video.

ASUS ‘We Transform’ Line-up
ASUS introduced a slew of products at its ‘We Transform’ press event which we attended, in conjunction with a big ASSU roadshow in the city. ASUS officially announced the availability of the MeMO Pad HD7, VivoBook S500 Series, N Series and A Series notebooks. We also had the chance to catch the upcoming PadFone Infinity, Fonepad Note 6 and… *drumrolls… the Google Nexus 7. Read on.
