Apple AirPort Express review: new generation
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As access point the Apple AirPort Express is a very good product. The device is easy to configure and has excellent wireless performance. We would not recommend using it as a router, because the hardware is a bit too limited for that with the small number of ports and the Fast Ethernet standard. The ports can't keep up with the wireless speeds that can be achieved. A gigabit switch partially gets around that problem, and while the Express might suffice as a router for many consumers, chances are you will run into its limitations.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M92 USFF review: Professional mini-
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo has created a very interesting mini-system with the Lenovo ThinkCentre M92. It has boiled down the computer to its bare essentials, but everything you need is included. The system is energy-efficient, and it offers decent performance with the Intel Core i3-2120T. If you're looking for a small and efficient PC with management features, then the ThinkCentre M92 USFF is a very interesting option.

ZOTAC ZBOX nano AD12 PLUS Review
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reviewed today is the new ZBOX nano AD12 PLUS, an evolution of the AD10 sporting upgraded dual-core AMD E2-1800 APU running at 1.7GHz with HD7340 Graphics based around the A68M platform. The system supports up-to 8GB DDR3-1333 RAM via a single 204-Pin SODIMM Slot, with PLUS models bundling a single 2GB DDR3 SODIMM. Storage is a similar tale - the 2.5" bay supports SATA III 6Gbps drives, allowing the use of either larger mechanical HDDs or the latest ultra-fast SSDs, whilst PLUS models come with a single 320GB 5400RPM HDD pre-installed. These are by no means an exhaustive list of the ZBOX nano AD12, which also includes 802.11n WiFi, MCE remote and IR sensor, Gigabit LAN and Bluetooth 3.0; who says you need desktop size for premium features?

Shuttle OmniNAS KD20 review: first time's the charm
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a first entry, the Shuttle OmniNAS KD20 certainly doesn't disappoint. It has a solid chassis, a USB 3.0 port on the front and quality trays for the hard disks. The firmware has all the features you expect on a NAS, and the lay-out is well-organised. Shuttle also has practical apps for remote access to your folders.

ALUSA Atom Desktop
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 9:09A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past several weeks I have been testing out the ALUSA Atom Desktop with Linux. As implied by the name it`s an Intel Atom powered desktop/nettop computer, but this Atom system comes out of Portugal from a small Linux-focused start-up company."

HP Pavilion 23-1000z Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Oct 01 2012 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Pavilion 23-1000z is a 23-inch all-in-one PC that aims to get ahead of the competition by being budget-priced and having good all-around performance. However, the budget price does come at a sacrifice of some features other similar PCs have, like an HDMI-input."

Near-threshold voltage (NTV) computing
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Near-threshold voltage (NTV) computing continues the voltage scaling associated with Moore's Law and dramatically improves power and energy efficiency. Our latest article explores Intel's near-threshold voltage techniques and the implications and suitability for a variety of markets. The technology is superb for throughput, at the cost of latency, and best suited to HPC and mobile graphics.

Vizio CA27-A1 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Sep 27 2012 | 9:28A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vizio CA27-A1 all-in-one desktop PC offers some serious performance without the cost that usually accompanies it. It also has a strong multimedia feature set, which includes a 1080p full HD 27-inch display, two HDMI port and four USB 3.0 ports. It does lack an optical disc drive, which does seem rather strange."

HP Pavilion g6t-2000 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Sep 26 2012 | 9:49A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Pavilion g6t-2000 is a fantastic budget laptop that offers good performance, a flashy design and good sounding audio. The battery life is sub par, however, and the graphics performance could definitely be better. For the sub-$500 price tag, it is still a great buy."

Dell Inspiron 13z Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Sep 24 2012 | 4:30P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Inspiron 13z is a stylish looking ultraportable, with a clear design identity and reasonable price. Though not quite an ultrabook thanks to a few unchecked boxes on Intel`s specification listit`s a tad too thick, and it lacks the flash cache needed for speedy boot timesit`s still a decent portable performer."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Dell XPS One 27 All-in-One PC Review
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 5:56P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Four years ago, I wrote a back to school guide for dorm-friendly technology on a budget. Yes, it still holds true that a good notebook PC will work wonders for students, but sometimes you still want to have a desktop and you still want to have a bigger screen. Unfortunately, you may not exactly have room for both a full desktop computer and an HDTV. You want something that can do both without sacrificing anything in terms of performance. Today, those wishes may just be one of several possibilities and we have one of them from DELL. A prime example of this is their new Dell XPS One 27. If you want a powerful desktop with a big screen but a not-so-big footprint, this could be the PC for you. *"

Lenovo ThinkStation S30 Workstation Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Workstations and business related products are not normally what we cover here at ThinkComputers. We are more consumer and enthusiast based, but our friends at Lenovo asked us if we would take a look at their latest workstation system the ThinkStation S30. We decided why not since we never cover things like this and who knows many some of you reading this review might pick up a few of these for your office. The ThinkStation S30 we are taking a look at today features an Intel Xeon E5-1620 Sandy Bridge processor, NVIDIA Quadro 2000 graphics, 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and two Seagate 500GB 7200 RPM drives in a RAID 0 setup. Lets see what the S30 is all about!"

Guru3D Rig of the Month - August 2012
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 9:30A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This months build comes from a Mikkel Olsen. At 27 years of age Mikkel probably did not build the most beautiful game PC we have had submitted, but his room nearly is one huge PC, a freakish gaming please heaven for many of you. The guy has a lot going on in there as you are about to find out. Come to think of it, the guy should put up some Miami Vice signs in there to get that good old 80`ies feel to it :) Check the article here"

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
