Another feature that is visible is a keyboard with light-sensing capabilities, Acer Twin Cooling System and the battery life is quite long (9 hours for a 11.6-inch and 12 hours for a 13.3-inch).

Smart Grid technology the power system

Indonesia Indonesia began to implement a power smart grid technology is a technology that operates the power system by combining computer technology, communications and networking. For Indonesia, this technology was first applied in Southwest Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara.

"Given the energy derived from fossil (fuel) will be exhausted in 2025. It is time for Indonesia to develop renewable energy such as solar power, water and wind. Therefore I strongly support the creation of demo Plant Micro Smart Grid," said Minister of Research and Technology, Gusti Muhammad Hatta.

Professors of Mangkurat University, said that "Plant Micro Smart Grid" is a new approach and the first in Indonesia to operate the power system that utilizes communications technology, computer, and cyber. Smart Grid which has been inaugurated by the backed techno ministry good variety of advanced technology electronic equipment and tools of information and communication technologies (ICTs).

"The initiative of the BPPT (Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology) is nice and the first in Indonesia. Because through the demo "Plant Micro Smart Grid" is able to integrate and manage the utilization of various renewable energy power plants either solar, wind, hydro, biomass and diesel ," Gusti said, as quoted from vivanews.

Meanwhile, the head of BPPT Marzan A Iskandar said the smart grid is a new approach. "Implementation of Smart Grid technology will provide greater benefits because the amount of renewable generation and distributed storage units and integrated increases, efficiency increases, operating expenses decreased, increased reliability and decreased CO2 emissions. And may this be a model that integrates solar energy, micro hydro, and diesel generator is intended to reduce the use of diesel fuel that is widely used in remote areas like the Southwest Sumba," Marzan said.

According to the United States Energy Board, "smart grid" is a class of technologies used for electricity delivery system in the 21st century, using a computer-based controllers and machines. This technology connects power-plants of various kinds to the consumer either home or business. Two-way communication-based technology has been used in other industries, but only 21 centuries before it is implemented in the electricity industry.

LG X Note Z350 ultrabook have high speed

LG recently announced its latest made ​​ultrabook, X Note Z350 which adopts processor Intel Core Third Generation. With the ultrabook specifications, the Korean company's claims-made portable computer device can do the boot 9 seconds.

As quoted from Engadget, as successor to the Z330 series, LG this week released a laptop with 13.3-inch wide screen is claimed the best screen size ultrabook devices in the market. Has a silver color display and the keyboard and LCD glossy black.

Despite having a relatively common screen sizes such as devices like laptop computers, but the LG X-Note Z350 processor Intel Core i5/i7 pinned to add value to these devices. In addition, the device is also equipped with cutting-edge Solid-State Drive (SSD) and Intel Wireless Display (Widi).

Portable computer devices are not only claimed to provide speed at the time of the boot process, but also said to be able to deliver graphics performance twice as fast. Thus, support for playing 3D games.

LG X Note Z350 has the sheer size of 14.7 mm and weight 1.2 pounds. With its slim and lightweight, the device can carry wherever users want easily.

Not only that, this LG ultrabook also has the ability full HD (1080p). With support for Intel Wireless Display (Widi), users can display the video display such as TV transmission without cables.

LG X Note Z350 ultrabook is also claimed to have high-speed SSD and equipped also with a capacity of 500GB HDD. Yet known about the battery life and a price tag that will be offered. LG will soon be expected to give more details of this new product made.

Intel laptop from Aircraft design

The technicians at Intel to apply lessons learned from aircraft design to create a more solid laptop. This step is carried out as part of efforts to cut the price of ultra-thin laptops.

After read Reuters, Intel relies ultrabook to anticipate the popularity of Apple's iPad. Models are expected to slide later 2012 will have a large touch screen, instant on capability and thinness as a razor.

The technicians at Intel Dupont, Wshington R & D Center, has discovered a design method that makes the plastic casing on the laptop can be as strong as metal. Borrowing the product design methods used aircraft industry, the engineers discovered that the hard drive, motherboard and other components can be made ​​with a specific arrangement.

Head of the technician team, Ben Broili argued that such a move might cut the cost of future ultrabook approximately USD25 to USD75. Because the method allows the replacement of metal with plastic without sacrificing quality.

"We do not develop new material. We were able to use the existing plastic manufacturing technologies that already exist. It just requires more thought about how you put the system and how to align and bind it," says Broili.

Their work is an example of Intel's steps to figure out how to make future ultrabook prices become more affordable, without cutting the price of the processor.

At a meeting with analysts last month, Intel Chief Executive Paul Otellini says the future laptop may present with prices starting at USD699. But is expected to set their prices much closer to USD1.000.
