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"

Posted by: STAFF
In the fall of 2011, Cooler Master`s gaming and enthusiast product branch, CM Storm, released the CM Storm Trooper Computer Case.

Giada D2305 Mini PC Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Aug 22 2012 | 10:39A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mini PC systems are great, especially for media or web browsing machines. They are very small and out of the way, they are easy to take with you, they have a small power footprint and they require hardly any maintenance at all. While most mini PCs are great for doing simple tasks, what about gaming or more intensive tasks? This is where the Giada D2305 comes in. Powered by the Intel i5-3427U processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 graphics it is aimed at the mid-range to be an all around system that can perform basic tasks as well as intensive ones without any issues. Lets see what the D2305 is made of shall we?"

Just in time for fall shopping, the Dell Latitude E6430 is a 14-inch laptop that hopes to break through. It has a sturdy design, very strong performance and extra long battery life. It does weigh more than other similar laptops and has a few other small quirks."

Maingear Potenza Super Stock SFF System Review
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 2:06P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Notebook makers aren't the only ones trying to cram big performance parts into little form factors. Desktop system builders are attempting the same thing, and if you require proof, all the evidence you need is packed inside Maingear's Potenza Super Stock (SS) gaming PC. Built around the mini-ITX form factor, the Potenza SS is a small form factor (SFF) system that rises above the moderate expectations of what a comparatively itty-bitty PC can truly deliver. As it turns out, a mini-ITX rig can pack quite the payload. It starts with an Intel Ivy Bridge foundation, and Maingear bumped up the default processor option to an unlocked Core i7 3770K chip. Maingear then goosed the CPU past its stock 3.5GHz clockspeed as part of the company's optional Redline overclocking service...

Giada A51 Ultra Mini PC @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 10:30A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One device we did not mention is the computer. A PC is the most cost effective way of connecting to the TV and not only being able to display your pictures, stream your videos and listen to your music but after you have done all that you can browse the internet maybe even play a game or two. And with a PC being as small or mini as they are they flow with all of the other components that make up your media theatre system without being the center of the setup. We have seen a few mini systems come across our table. They mostly have come from Sapphire and Asrock and we have seen them both preform a"

Wesena ITX5 Mini-ITX HTPC Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Wed, Jul 25 2012 | 9:37A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Boasting clean lines, the right look, and solid construction for Mini-ITX based systems the Wesena ITX5 all-aluminum enclosure offers capabilities very similar to the ITX7; by removing optical drive support in a slightly lower cost ($80) package. Building a name for quality takes time and attention to feedback, so it was fantastic to examine the generational differences between the two small form-factor (SFF) home theater PC (HTPC) chassis from Wesena. As a refinement on the previous iteration we hope to see the niggles around fit-and-finish addressed. *"

SHUTTLE XS36V REVIEW
     Sun, Jul 22 2012 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.comShuttle's XS36V is a tightly integrated and fanless mini barebone. Just add some memory and storage for a complete system.

"The D2700 is Intel's most powerful Atom to date. It has a clock frequency of 2.13GHz, supports HyperThreading, and is manufactured on 32nm process. Also on-board is a 640 MHz PowerVR SGX545 GPU. It's actually a valid desktop replacement in most offices, small businesses, schools, and silence aficionados. With a power consumption of only 16W in idle mode, the XS36V is also very energy efficient."

HP Omni 27 Quad All-In-One Review
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Omni 27 is HP's latest all-in-one that shares many aesthetic characteristics with the TouchSmart 520 we recently reviewed, despite being in a different class. Inside we find a third-generation Intel Core i5-3550S Ivy Bridge processor clocked at 3.0GHz, 8GB of DDR3 memory, a 2TB Hitachi hard drive spinning at 7,200 RPM, Radeon HD 6550A graphics and Beats Audio. There's also an HDMI-in port so you could use this display as an HDTV to watch cable programming from a set-top box or play console games. There's a 27-inch display tucked behind the edge-to-edge glass that admittedly looks much cleaner than what we saw on the 520. The difference here is that the Omni's 27-inch display isn't touch-sensitive, something a lot of people won't really miss in a pre-Windows 8 desktop system, or a desktop in general.

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.
