ZOTAC ZBOX ID83 Plus MiniPC Review
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CES 2013 brought upon us another year of great product launches yet to come but there is one product you won’t have to wait long for and that is the ZOTAC ZBOX ID83. ZOTAC has been churning out these Small Form Factor PCs for quite some time and while most of the units we took a look at last year were based upon AMD architecture things are about to change."

Dell Precision M6700 review
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Precision M6700 is more than an amazing laptop, with really only one drawback. That's the weight. 4.1 kg is heavy, no matter how you look at it. This is a laptop that will make any hardware enthusiast, or probably anyone that can appreciate a good piece of engineering, really happy. Particularly the configuration that we received from Dell, but even the less extreme versions are commendable. That's because you get a myriad of expansion options, including four memory slots and room for four disks.

Samsung Series 7 All-in-one PC 700A3D review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 6:54P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has already established it can design a good-looking TV, and that expertise has now been applied to all-in-one PCs. The Samsung Series 7 All-in-One PC 700A3D is a special computer. You can operate it with keyboard and mouse, the touchscreen and even (less successfully) by hand gestures. Plus you also get a remote.

Apple iMac 27 inch 2012 review: Mac XL
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 3:46P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 27-inch iMac we tested costs £1,699, and that's not nothing. You do get a very stylish computer in aluminium with above-average specifications. It has an excellent 27-inch display, a powerful processor, 8 GB of RAM and a fast graphics card. The main drawback is the slow hard disk, in a configuration like this an SSD should be standard.

HP Spectre One Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jan 03 2013 | 5:47A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Spectre One is an eye-catching 23-inch Windows 8 desktop PC that has a very iMac-like design. It has an Intel i5, 8GB of RAM and a 1TB hard drive, so it`s definitely got enough power for anyone. Surprisingly it lacks a touch screen, which is really the only thing holding back this PC."

Apple iMac 27-inch (Late 2012)
     Mon, Dec 10 2012 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Viewing Apple's iMac 27-inch (Late 2012) desktop from the front, it looks at first as if Apple is doing the same thing to the iMac that it did with the new Mac Mini: updating the internal hardware but leaving the exterior unchanged. The edge-to-edge glass over the display, the wide brushed aluminum "chin" below the display, the single piece aluminum stand—it's clearly an iMac. Thanks to upgraded hardware and a new internal design, it is faster and more responsive, offering larger, smarter storage."

Acer Aspire S7 Windows 8 Ultrabook Review
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Of all of the bits of review kit that I’ve had the pleasure of using, the Acer Aspire S7 is the one that has gathered me the most questions and comments. “That’s a thin laptop,” says the man on the train. “It’s the same thickness as my phone” says my girlfriend. Indeed, the very first thing you’ll notice about this ultrabook is its size – at just 12.3 mm, it’s svelte to the extreme, thinner even than the iconic MacBook Air and advertised by Acer as the thinnest Ultrabook ever."

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.
