Polytron also updating its lineup via Crystal Wizard II (model W3430) which has brought dual core. This increase is expected to bring better ability for the device to process the data.

    U3-435-PolytronJika the previous Wizard series (W2400 – PCplus 418) Polytron still using single core 1GHz CPU, the W3430 used MT6577 1GHz dual core processor from MediaTek.

  • Gateway DX4870-UB2B

    Comments Off on Gateway DX4870-UB2B
    July 18, 2020 /  Computer Technology, Hardware

    The Gateway DX4870-UB2B ($499.99 list) is a basic tower desktop PC that checks all the boxes on what you need from a new desktop, particularly if you already have a LCD display that you’re carrying over. It’s speedy for its segment, has capacious storage, will let your family keep many documents open simultaneously, and it’s relatively inexpensive. Unlike the $300 bargain basement specials, the DX4870-UB2B$499.99 at Best Buy comes with a modern Intel Core i3 processor, dual-band Wi-Fi, and lots of drive space. It’s expandable, so it can grow with your family. It’s not ground breaking, but it’s a solid choice with a great bang for the buck, so it’s our latest Editors’ Choice for budget desktop PCs.

    Design and Features
    The DX4870-UB2B follows other Gateway desktops, looking almost identical to the last black tower Gateway DX4870-UB17$329.99 at Newegg.com ($500). Like that model, the DX4870-UB2B comes in a tower chassis with black panels all around, including the plastic front panel and metal side panels. The system’s tray-loading DVD burner is hidden, but two of the system’s USB 2.0 ports, SD card reader, and audio jacks are exposed on the top front of the chassis. In the back, the system has four more USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports, HDMI, VGA, Ethernet, more audio jacks, and two connectors for the included WiFi antennas. It would have been nice if the front USB ports were USB 3.0 to accommodate USB hard drives instead of the slower USB 2.0.

    The inside of the system is certainly expandable, with plenty of space to move around for future upgrades. The system has space for two additional drives: one optical 5.25-inch bay and one 3.5-inch hard drive bay. Theoretically, you could shoehorn another three to four 2.5-inch notebook class drives in the same space, provided you have the correct brackets to hold the drives. The motherboard has four free SATA ports to service these drives. The system also has two DIMM slots free, along with a slot for a PCIe 3.0 x16 graphics card and two additional PCIe 2.0 x1 expansion cards. One PCIe x1 slot is occupied by the included 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi card, which will serve most users well. This is an improvement over other budget systems like the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q190$416.03 at antonline.com ($400) and Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus$448.99 at Amazon ($473), both of which don’t support 5Ghz WiFi, only the more common and crowded 2.4GHz channels.

    The last consideration you have to make for expandability is the system’s 300W power supply. While sufficient for additional drives and minor expansion cards, 300W will be insufficient for a high-powered discrete graphics card with Nvidia’s or AMD’s highest end GPUs. You can of course swap out the included power supply, but most budget system buyers never open their chassis, even if they are tempted by the system’s expandability. Bring a screwdriver if you dare, because you’ll need it for the case door and the drive bays. At least the internal card slots are tool-less.

    Like other Gateway systems, the DX4870-UB2B comes with quite a few pre-loaded applications and utilities. These include 7digital, Zinio, Kindle, eBay, Chacha, Netflix, NewsXpresso, Amazon, Tunein, Hulu Plus, Xbox Games, Cut The Rope, Stumbleupon, Skype, Merriam-Webster, Britannica, Spotify, Microsoft Office (ad), Norton Internet Security), and Wild Tangetn games. That’s a lot of pre-loaded apps, and most if not all are available for free from Microsoft Windows Store. While you may want to spend a few moments uninstalling all these programs, fret not, since the system has a capacious 1TB hard drive with plenty of free space left. The DX4870-UB2B comes with a standard one-year warranty.

    Performance
    The system comes with a third-generation Intel Core i3-3240 processor, 6GB of DDR3 memory, Intel HD Graphics 2500 (integrated in the Core i3 processor), and a 1TB 5,400rpm SATA hard drive. All of these components mean the system is plenty fast on our benchmark tests, certainly faster than the Lenovo Q190 and the Zbox ID83 Plus. That said, there are systems in this price range that are faster, notably the Polywell Nano i3-Q7 ($595) which trades physical and storage space for SSD speed, and the Acer Aspire AT3-600-UR11$449.99 at Newegg.com($600), which has a discrete graphics card and slightly more powerful processor adding to its performance totals. Check the performance chart link to see the final numbers, but suffice to say the DX4870-UB2B has the performance to keep your family happy for the next five years or so.

    Starting from his love for the graphic design world, John Djauhari now assembling machines printer (printer) 3D. By leveraging open source technology, 3D printers that can print documents assembled Johanes digital into three-dimensional objects.

    John worked as a product designer. Some clients who want to make a product sometimes is not satisfied if only to see the design in the form of digital documents. They want physical shape despite the small size.

    “Well, from there, why do not I make a 3D printer itself,” he said when met at the show Popcon KompasTekno Asia 2013 in Jakarta Convention Center, beginning last July.

    John also likes the toys (toys). Many colleagues who designed character toys and wanted to realize his ideas into tangible form. Some of them use the services of John for 3D printing.

    John also likes the toys (toys). Many colleagues who designed character toys and wanted to realize his ideas into tangible form. Some of them use the services of John for 3D printing.

    Keseriusan Johanes merakit printer 3D dimulai pada 2011. Ia mendirikan Bikin Bikin 3D Print dan aktif ikut pameran untuk memperkenalkan teknologi ini. Kala itu, desain luar printer buatannya masih berupa kerangka. Setelah melewati beberapa kali pengembangan, kini printer 3D-nya semakin akurat dan didesain menggunakan casing. “Akurasinya sampai 0,2 mm,” tutur Johanes.

    Akurasi itu dibuktikan dengan mencetak replika arca yang penuh detail dan lekukan. Johanes terlebih dahulu memindai seluruh bagian arca asli yang tersimpan di Museum Nasional. Setelah mendapat filepindainya, mulailah Johanes mendesain 3D lalu mencetak dengan printer buatannya sendiri.

    Memanfaatkan “open source

    Dalam mengembangkan printer 3D, Johanes memanfaatkan teknologi open source untuk driver dansoftware. Ia ikut dalam forum internet yang khusus membahas teknologi printer 3D.

    “Di forum ini, kita bisa tahu kalau ada algoritma yang lebih baik dan memberi struktur lebih mudah. Bukan cuma soal teknis, dari sana juga kita tahu soal materi yang mudah dicari dan lebih terjangkau,” jelasnya.

    Untuk mendesain bentuk 3D, Johanes menggunakan software Pronter Face dan Repetier. Komputer yang dipakainya terhubung ke motherboard printer melalui kabel USB. Motherboard inilah yang memerintahkan gerakan koordinat X, Y, dan Z, menerjemahkan dokumen digital menjadi obyek nyata 3D.

    Printer 3D yang dibuat Johanes masuk dalam tahap pengembangan akhir. Ia membuka pre-orderdengan harga Rp 10 juta. Setelah masa pre-order berakhir pada September 2013, printer 3D bakal dibanderol Rp 12 juta.
