Update : There is a new Unli25 promo of smart, visit this post

From the original Smart LAHATXT Unli  , Smart has able to come up with , for me personally (read on to know why), a better promo than Globe's Super Unli All text promo. Now why is it better for me, check out the difference

Unlimited Text to all networks
10 mins Smart to Smart calls
25mb consumable data
to register text LTU25 to 2266

Globe SuperUnliAllTxt

Unlimited Text to all networks
10 mins Globe to Globe calls
1hr mobile internet
to register text UALLPLUS25 to 8888

Actually it comes down on how you intend to use your mobile internet. For me,i use my mobile internet (the free time i get from promos) to check my social network account, if i will be using the mobile internet for extensive use I usually apply or register for Unlimited Data plans like SuperSurf 50.

HP Pavilion Dm1 gets to 2nd generation with new design

By // No comments:
Back in May 2011, we posted an article on why we selected HP dm1z as the laptop for our budget range and needs. In less than a year, another update on this fresh line of notebook is surfaces.

Here is an image of the new dm1 from engadget
Here is an image of the 1st gen dm1z

As you can see on the images above, there's a shift between a glossy plastic lid to a "SoftTouch -- a rubber coating that masks fingerprints and doesn't reflect light" (according to engadget).

 Getting the performance boost out of the way, it'll now be offered with an ultra-low voltage Core i3 processor, while the Fusion options now include the E-300 and E-450 chips (until now, it's been sold with the E-350). The AMD versions will start at $399 with the Core i3 model fetching $599 and up.- Engadget

With a better performance than the first gen and same price range, I think we are going to have another member of wifi devices at home once this baby gets loose. You can play games on this laptop :)
