We start this episode with a panel discussion of Apple’s iPad. Scott, Geoff, and Cyril voice criticisms about the device, while Jordan makes his case for the iPad succeeding as an everyman consumer tablet. Moving on to PC hardware, we cover a variety of news surrounding Nvidia’s upcoming GF100 graphics processor, not to mention the company’s latest switchable graphics technology, a.k.a. Optimus.
Scott goes on to deliver an exclusive podcast preview of his Radeon HD 5830 article, which should pop up on the website this week. Finally, our editors explain the new CPU picks, price hikes, and component tweaks from our latest system guide.
