Gigabyte Aero 15W-CF2
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 7:05P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte Aero 15 is an intriguing laptop for two main reasons. The first is the way it packs a mid-sized 15.6-inch screen into a laptop that appears to have a 14-inch chassis – that 5mm bezel on the sides and top edge is remarkably slender. The second point is that we rather expected this sleek, light and stylish laptop would be branded as an ‘Aorus’, rather than a ‘Gigabyte’. The explanation we were given is that the Aero 15 runs Windows 10 Professional which means it is intended for business users.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 Review: A Thin
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 6:46P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time when laptop options were basically a choice between desktop-like performance in a heavy and bulky form-factor, an ultralight with integrated graphics, or something in the middle, at around 5-lbs with a low-end GPU. NVIDIA sought to solve this choice compromise with its Max-Q Design initiative that was announced at Computex last month. Max-Q Design is a holistic approach to notebook graphics design that ensures a svelte exterior, light weight, quiet cooling, and optimal performance. ASUS and NVIDIA joined forces to produce the 15.6-inch Republic of Gamers (ROG) Zephyrus GX501, the first complete Max-Q Design gaming notebook to hit the market...

TUF Z270 Mark 1 motherboard
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 6:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the latest revision of the TUF line, ASUS made the decision to drop the well-known "Sabertooth" moniker from the board's name, naming the board with the TUF branding only. The TUF Z270 Mark 1 motherboard is the flagship board in ASUS' TUF (The Ultimate Force) product line designed with the Intel Z270 chipset. The board offers support for the latest Intel Kaby Lake processor line as well as Dual Channel DDR 4 memory because of its integrated Intel Z270 chipset. While the MSRP for the board may be a bit higher than expected, its $239 price is more than justified by the board's build quality and "armored" offerings.
