Ultrabooks: Five of the Best

Inspired by Intel, Ultrabooks are a new specialized breed of high-end subnotebooks available on the market today. Designed to be slim in profile and light to carry, Ultrabooks are super thin at less than 2.1 cm thick and usually weigh less than 1.5 kg or 3.3 lbs, all wrapped up in a svelte package without compromising on performance or battery life.

We’re entering a second phase of Ultrabook development. First generation models such as the Acer Aspire S3, Asus Zenbook UX31 and Lenovo IdeaPad U300 series have now been supplemented by second generation Ultrabooks in the form of the Acer Aspire S5, Asus Zenbook Prime UX32 and Lenovo IdeaPad U410. The boundaries of what defines a Ultrabook have also been pushed back further and further, with discrete graphics, larger and denser displays, and even touch screens being introduced (sadly not yet featured here).

The Tablet PC is particularly important because aside from it being a fairly new technology, the possible applications for such devices are endless. One such useful application would be the integration of these devices on home automation systems. The current systems utilize touch panels for the control interface which are much more expensive due to the limited production compared to Tablet PC’s. The latter would be a very good replacement for the system because aside from being more affordable, it is also a wireless device.

Some of the Unit Testing Tools with the Target Language

Unit testing is a term related to computer programming. It is a method in which a single source code unit is tested independently before making them fit for use. The first goal of a unit testing in any application is to take the independent and smallest piece of testable softwre.

A unit is defined as the smallest part that can be tested for an application. Unit may also be a procedure or an individual function in a procedural programming. Programmers usually create unit tests, and sometimes it is also created by white box testers.

In ideal condition, each of the test cases is independent of any other test condition. The substitutes, such as method stubs, fakes, mock objects and test harnesses may be used in assisting any testing module in isolation.
