iMac is Apple’s popular line of of all-in-one computers. you have the central processing unit and the display in one package looking like a giant monitor.

Looks like Apple is facing some problems with the hardware of the iMacs shipped during 2011. It is not a big problem as hardware might face some sort of damage during manufacturing. It is suggested that the problem is with the 1TB primary hard disk of the device manufactured by Seagate. The exact cause of the problem is not disclosed.

Datalocker 3 Offers Full Hard Drive Encryption; 320GB, 640GB, 1TB

Origin Storage has just rolled out the new Datalocker 3, an external hard disk that provides data encryption capability for the entire hard drive. The Datalocker 3 features USB 3.0 support, RFID for dual factor authentication and a backlit LCD on the drive, all features that weren’t present on the previous Datalocker 2.

Some customers have reported problems with the Datalocker 2, such as problems viewing the keypad whilst typing in their encryption access key in lowlit areas. Fortunately, this was remedied with Datalocker 3 and for good reason too! Datalocker 3 also supports a 31 digit access code in alphanumeric format and customers certainly don’t want to make mistakes that could lock them out of their drives.

Alienware Refreshes Gaming Laptop Lineup

Alienware has long been known as the gold standard of gaming but their hardware is often quite over priced. In any case, Alienware machines are always fun to look at. There have been recent talks of some fresh Alienware gaming notebooks headed our way. The notebooks of course are the third generation M11x, the M14x, and the M18x, as reported from a Dell employee. The numbers presumably refer to size of the screen. The new machines are expected to carry second generation i3/i5/i7 processors, up to 8GB RAM, and up to 750GB of storage, all depending on how much you are willing to pay. The 14-inch model will run at either a 1366 x 768 or a 1600 x 900 resolution depending on which graphics card you opt for.

Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD For $70

For $70 you can buy a 2TB HDD, a hard disk drive large enough to last you a lifetime (assuming we stay within our current data sizes.) The green HDD runs at 5900 RPM, which is decent for getting where you “need to go.” This would be a great upgrade for older computers running out of space. I have a few friends that have older computers and they often have to delete stuff every now and then to “free up there hard drive.” Even games such as Crysis 2 can take up as much 15GB for the game itself.
