Rey's Curious Electronics Page

Hello, folks! I will be writing about the very latest in computer hardware and associated technologies - processors, flash memory, solid state drives, motherboards, things like that - with an emphasis on interesting innovations or features. You can also expect me to cover similarly strange prebuilt computers and gadgets for good measure.

Such technology evolves at an alarmingly fast rate these days, and it can often be difficult to stay on track with new developments. I'll help you stay in the know, one post at a time.
