Posted by: STAFF
"I’m sure at some point you’ve had a bad PC setup. Maybe moving into a new place, waiting for a new desk to arrive or you just ran out of room. I can remember my horrible PC setups from when I was living at the dorms in college. If you have ever ventured over to the Shitty Battlestations sub-reddit you will find a lot of horrible PC setups. We will are going to pick 20 each month and feature them as 20 of the Worst PC setups for that month. Here are some of the bad ones from February."

Kailh Box White switches and RGB lighting
     Thu, Mar 14 2019 | 1:58P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At $70, the presence of Kailh Box White switches and RGB lighting may make the V765 reasonably attractive to gaming keyboard buyers, especially if you’re willing to live with headaches and roll the dice on the prospect of longevity. But you're getting what you pay for.

PC Specialist Octane VI RTX – 9900K & RTX 2080 Max-P
     Mon, Mar 11 2019 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC Specialist has delivered a laptop named Octane VI RTX that combines a desktop Core i9-9900K CPU with a full-on RTX 2080 Max-P graphics chip. This is a beast of a desktop replacement system with a 17.3-inch G-Sync screen that is clearly targeted at the professional market, but we have no doubt that gamers will also be paying attention. Can it play Crysis? Probably (we don’t actually test with Crysis), but can it play Far Cry 5? Heck yes, and it plays it FAST!

     Thu, Feb 28 2019 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has revamped their desktop lineup with the ONE i160 compact gaming PC. Sporting an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, Intel i9-9900K, and 32 GB of memory, this new system is more than just a bunch of high-end hardware. It's also absolutely tiny. Maybe, they should have called it Little Mac since it packs such a serious punch.

Dell XPS 13 (9380) 2019 Review: So Close To Perfection
     Wed, Jan 23 2019 | 6:18P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The thing about striving for perfection is that it is not truly attainable, and you can drive yourself mad trying to get there. Be that as it may, Dell has come closer than most with its premium line of XPS 13 laptops, which in our experience are some of the finest thin and light notebooks available, both in terms of their beautiful design, as well as all-around performance. The same is certainly true of Dell's latest refresh for 2019, which attempts to refine Dell's award winning 13-inch laptop platform even further...

Corsair M65 RGB Elite Review
     Sat, Jan 19 2019 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M65 retains the much-loved shape of previous models while boosting the internals and improving the materials used for better performance. Firstly, we find a brand new, custom-made PixArt PWM 3391 sensor capable of up to 18,000 DPI with sensitivity adjustments in 1 DPI increments. There’re also chassis improvements which reduce the weight to 97g without the optional weights.

Dell Inspiron 15 3000 (w/SSD Upgrade)
     Thu, Jan 10 2019 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's Insprion 15 3000 is an entry-level notebook that remains not only highly affordable after a quick upgrade to an SSD, but feels quick and responsive. Take that into account, along with the surprisingly good battery life, and you have a decent system for on-the-go that won't break the bank.

We took a look at the recently updated Razer Blade 15 Advanced model
     Fri, Jan 04 2019 | 3:34P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We took a look at the recently updated Razer Blade 15 Advanced model back in October and in this review we assess the newest Base model which is Razer’s way of introducing some of the Razer Blade’s features to a more budget conscious audience. It still doesn’t come cheap with a RRP of £1,480 for the 128GB model, but it does shave off around £250 from the starting price of the Advanced model. But what has been sacrificed and is this a laptop a worthy member of the well-regarded Razer Blade line up?

Shuttle XPC Slim Barebone XH310 Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2018 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The 3-litre, XH310 slim barebone from Shuttle is very flexible in terms of configuration and supports the latest Coffee Lake Intel processors. We can install up to 32GB of system memory, CPUs up to 65W TDP (95W SKUs can be installed as well, but the chipset will limit the frequencies in order to avoid overheating), an NVMe SSD, a WiFi card and more. Besides the compact, NVMe SSD, we can also fill the unit with no less than two 2.5’’ drives and an optical drive; if the optical drive is not necessary, we can always purchase the PHD4 3.5’’ HDD rack for even more storage."

HP Spectre Folio Review
     Fri, Dec 07 2018 | 4:48P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meet the HP Spectre Folio, the company’s latest ultra-portable 2-in-1 13-inch hybrid notebook that embraces a bit of what also makes things like luxury cars great – high-quality leather and classy design. While Microsoft only adorns its keyboards with Alcantara, HP covers the entire Spectre Folio exterior in supple, textured leather that transforms it into a more organic accessory, rather than just a sterile productivity, entertainment or content creation tool. This isn’t your grandma’s Honda Civic-grade leather either; think more on the level of an Audi A8 with the aromatic properties of a Bentley...
