Gateway has just taken the wraps off its first touchscreen-equipped Windows 8 notebooks. One of them, dubbed the NV570P, Gateway’s ships with a range of Intel Pentium or Intel Core i processors, up to 8GB of RAM, a hard drive that tops out at 750GB hard drive and Intel HD Graphics 4000. Gateway also noted that “most” versions of the NV570P will include a DVD drive. 

On top of that, the NV570P wears a 15.6 LED backlit touch-enabled display. But what about connectivity and other goodies? The NV570P is outfitted with 802.11b/g/n/ Wi-Fi, one USB 3.0 port, a pair of USB 3.0 connections, an HDMI-out, a media card reader and an integrated webcam.

There’s more though. Gateway also revealed the LT41P (pictured), a diminutive notebook which includes a 10.1-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1366 x 768. Weighing only 2.83 pounds, the LT41P runs on an Intel Celeron CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a hard drive that maxes out at 500GB while offering a frame that’s easy to lug around. Gateway claims that the LT41P offers five hours of battery life, and promises USB and HDMI connectivity. As part of the package, anyone who orders LT41P will also receive Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 edition for free.

Fortunately for consumers whose wallets are light thanks to the holiday shopping season, both the LT41P and NV570P check in at under $500. The former will run you $329.99, while the latter carries a price tag of $449.99.

Hacker claims to have hit Apple days after hacking AMD

Data breaches happen all the time, but when the giants get hit, it's impossible not to wonder what kind of critical data may become exposed. Earlier this week, notorious cybercriminal Intelbroker reported that they managed to hack AMD. Now, they followed up with claims about hacking Apple, and went as far as to share some internal source code on a hacking forum.

As Apple has yet to comment, all we have to go off is the forum post, first shared by HackManac on X (formerly Twitter). In the post, Intelbroker states that Apple suffered a data breach that led to the exposure of the source code for some of its internal tools. The tools include AppleConnect-SSO, Apple-HWE-Confluence-Advanced. There's been no mention of any customer data being leaked, which is good news, but there could still be some impact on Apple if this proves to be true.

Alexa to get supercharged with AI
Alexa can now handle multiple requests in a list.

Siri isn't the only digital assistant getting an AI update in the near future. According to sources speaking to Reuters, Amazon is reportedly planning an expansive update for its decade-old digital conversationalist that would implement a two-tier service subscription that could cost users $5 t0 $10 per month.

The new voice assistant, dubbed "Remarkable Alexa" per the sources, could arrive as soon as August 2024. The project, code-named "Banyan" after the species of large ficus tree, has become something of a pet project for CEO Andy Jassy, who promised a “more intelligent and capable Alexa” to shareholders in an April letter. The sources warned, however, that the rumored pricing and release dates could shift as we get closer to August, depending on how well the project comes together prior to that deadline.

Getting a cheaper laptop is always nice, especially if you just want to browse the web, watch videos, and do some simple online homework or type up documents. One great choice for this situation is to choose from one of the best Chromebooks, Google's pared down laptops that work well with cloud storage and have a low cost. Another great choice is to go for refurbished laptop deals, taking a gently used computer, saving a ton on it, and giving it a new life. Chromebook deals offer even better savings if you're willing to limit your selection. But the best choice just might be when you combine the two together to get a restored Chromebook.

We've compiled a list of the three restored Chromebooks over at Best Buy that are worth taking a look at. They're all under $200 and, if you're just looking for something easy to work with and don't have too many requirements, any of the three is a good pickup. For that reason, we'll list the three here for you to look at now, but keep reading for a more in-depth analysis.
