Selling my Macbook Pro (512GB SSD, Intel Core i7 9th Gen., 2.60 GHz, 16GB) as I’m not currently using it for work so funding a desktop PC.

This was bought in person from the apple store and has warranty until December 2020 for your own peace of mind. I also have the original receipt in my name. Functions as expected and battery cycles are around 79. Item comes with box and genuine charger.

For Sale – Microsoft Surface Pro 3, Intel corei5, 256gb SSD, 8Gb mem

Hi,
I have for sale a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 laptop with Intel core i5 processor, 256gb SSD and 8gb of memory, Surface Pen and charger.

The laptop is in excellent condition and fully working with the exception of the docking port at the bottom of the tablet which is is not working however there are no cosmetic issues.

As a result I use a Bluetooth keyboard (which looks like a surface keyboard and is shown in the photos, US layout) instead of a Surface keyboard as that used the docking port for power.

All Bluetooth and usb keyboards and mice, peripherals etc will work as normal, it only affects the official surface keyboard and dock.

The laptop also comes with a UAG protector which in itself is worth around £40 and gives a bit more protection against drops.

EDIT: Wanted to add it also has the original box it came in.

For Sale – Acer Predator Helios 300 i7 9750H, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, GTX 1660Ti, 15.6″ 144hz Full HD Screen

Acer Predator Helios 300 Intel Core i7 9750H, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, GTX 1660Ti 6GB Graphics, 15.6 inch Full HD Screen.

Bought just before Christmas last year so just over 6 months old, in perfect condition. Has always been plugged into power so battery life is still as new and has been connected to monitor with separate keyboard and mouse so the keyboard and trackpad on laptop have hardly been used.

I did quite a bit of research before buying and this had lot of good reviews for thermals whilst gaming, performance and screen are excellent.

Still has 6 months manufacturers warranty and I also have a 3 year extended warranty which I haven’t activated yet so buyer can register to claim.

Selling as I wasn’t using the laptop away from house as originally intended and have built a pc instead.

RRP at time of buying was £1200

Asking £850. Collection would be preferred but can sort delivery out if needed

Intel makes new investments in AI startups

Intel Capital, the investment and venture capital arm of software giant Intel, invested $132 million in 11 startups in the AI, automation and chip design market.

Intel Capital has invested nearly $13 billion in more than 1,550 companies since its founding in 1991. The new round of startup investments, revealed May 12, highlight Intel’s continued efforts to ramp up its own AI products as it competes with other major chip and AI hardware and software players such as Nvidia and AMD.

The latest crop of vendors Intel is investing in are: Anodot, Astera Labs, Axonne, Hypersonix, KFBIO, Lilt, MemVerge, ProPlus Electronics, Retrace, Spectrum Materials and Xsight Labs.

The future is AI

For Intel, which sells hardware to power AI systems, investing in AI startups makes sense and builds synergy with its own business.

“The efficacy of AI often depends on strong processing capabilities,” said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, founder of market advisory and research firm Deep Analysis. “So, at one level Intel is invested heavily in supporting existing approaches to AI.”

Intel has long sold chips to power AI workloads, and over the last few years has invested heavily in AI hardware research and development. Last year, the Mountain View, Calif., vendor acquired Habana Labs, an Israel-based startup specializing in deep learning accelerators, for $2 billion to diversify its AI portfolio.

Venture funding increases
Venture funding increases

The acquisition built on Intel’s 2016 purchase of AI firm Nervana Systems, which enabled Intel to produce the Nervana NNP processors, a line of chips specifically designed for inferencing and training machine learning models. Intel discontinued the line this year in favor of building out chips based on Habana’s technology.

“We are moving away from generic AI capabilities to highly specialized, micro-implementations of AI that can be embedded and run at chip-level,” Pelz-Sharpe said. Intel, he said, will likely continue to embed more AI in its products over time.

Investing in startups

The 11 startups Intel Capital in which recently chose to invest likely not only benefit from the millions of dollars of funding but also from Intel’s deep expertise in complex processing, Pelz-Sharpe noted.

Intel investing in an AI startup is a huge endorsement of the startup itself.

“For some of these startups that could lead to being acquired by Intel in the future, but either way, Intel investing in an AI startup is a huge endorsement of the startup itself, so it’s not an investor that anyone would want to turn away,” he added.

Last year, Intel Capital invested $466 million across 36 new investments and 35 follow-on investments.

Other technology giants, including Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet, also invest heavily in startups in the AI market, and have frequently acquired AI startups over the last few years.

Funding for AI startups has skyrocketed over the past decade, with global private investments in AI startups having reached $37 billion in 2019, according to a report by Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence initiative at Stanford University.
