Review: HP Envy 14 Spectre @ ocaholic
     Mon, Jun 18 2012 | 9:55A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Already at the beginning of this year, or more precisely during CES 2012, HP presented the first pictures and specs regarding their Envy 14 Spectre ultra portable notebook. Meanwhile we`ve received a review sample from HP and we`re curious wether this exquisite piece of hardware can also convince from a performance and battery life point of view."

HP Pavilion p7-1225 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 3:55P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Pavilion p7-1225 is one of those desktop systems that`s just a bit over the $500 entry-level price point, but also gives you a little more for your money. It has DX11-compatible 3D graphics on its AMD A8-3820 APU (accelerated processing unit, or a CPU with integrated graphics in AMD-speak). It`s basic, but capable of playing light to moderate 3D games right out of the box."

Dell XPS One 2700 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Jun 06 2012 | 9:10A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are more 27-inch all-in-one desktops on the market these days, but very few are worth big bucks. The Dell XPS One 2710 manages to put almost every technology and feature we`re looking for in a compact and stylish chassis. And it has excellent performance, thanks to its new Core i7 (Ivy Bridge) processor and Nvidia GeForce (Kepler) graphics. If you`re a media enthusiast, this is the desktop you`re looking for."

Guru3D Rig of the Month - May 2012
     Sun, Jun 03 2012 | 9:04A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rig of the Month May 2012 is unique for the reason that it is a woody :) Yep - a wooden cabinet was revamped into a stylish desktop. The build is not extreme with flashing lights, liquid cooling and extravaganza at all -- the build has simple yet very clean looks and serves the owners needs really well. Have a peek at the build from Petar from France. Check out the build right here"

Dell XPS One 27 All-in-One Desktop Review
     Sat, Jun 02 2012 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's a transformation taking place in the PC market, and despite what the doomsayers might tell you, it has nothing to do with tablets, smartphones, tweener devices like the Galaxy Note, or increasingly media-centric game consoles. No, the transformation we're observing is one where people are trading in their towers and monitors for space-saving all-in-one (AIO) desktops. The AIO form factor isn't new by any means, but for a number of reasons, it's finally starting to gain momentum. And as they become more popular, companies like Dell have begun paying more attention to ways they can improve upon the design. To wit, Dell's new XPS One 27, reviewed here, introduces a spacious and vibrant 27-inch display with a Wide Quad HD (WQHD) 2560x1440 resolution and Samsung Plane to Line Switching (PLS) panel...

Interview with Raspberry's Founder Eben Upton
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Eben Upton has had an interesting trajectory both as an entrepreneur and academic, founding a couple of startups over the last decade and a half, as well as acting as the Director of Studies in Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. Now employed at Broadcom as an SoC architect, his latest “on-the-side” venture combines a little bit of each facet and is perhaps its most ambitious yet: reignite programming in schools with a cheap ($25-$35), compact computing platform that kids could buy themselves. But despite targeting students, his foundation's tiny computer has already captured the imaginations of tinkers worldwide.

Dell XPS 8500 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 1:26P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Positioned between Dell`s Inspiron value desktops and Alienware gaming rigs, the XPS 8500 targets digital content creators, game players, and power users who`d probably never buy a Digital Storm, Velocity Micro, or other boutique brand, but who crave more performance than generic retail PCs provide. It gets that performance from one of Intel`s new Ivy Bridge quad-core processors and AMD`s speedy Radeon HD 7870 graphics card, along with a 256GB Samsung mSATA solid-state drive plus a 3TB hard drive."

Making A Easy-To-Setup $50 Linux Multi-Seat Computer
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 8:11A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it`s improved a lot recently, in the past setting up a multi-seat computer has been a pain in the ass with a lot of manual configurations needed and other peculiar steps to get the hardware/software combination working right. What if the process were a lot simpler? What if new seats could be added to a computer at a very low cost and the setup was effectively out of the box to the point that it`s truly plug-and-play? Well, we are now effectively at that point on the Linux desktop and there is a new Kickstarter effort to help in that initiative."

Raspberry Pi Review & Initial How-To Setup Guide
     Wed, May 09 2012 | 12:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Six years ago, Raspberry Pi founder Eben Upton set out to reignite programming in schools with a cheap, compact computing platform. Despite targeting students, his foundation's $35 computer captured the imaginations of tinkers worldwide, resulting in overwhelming demand. Interest was so high, that distributors Premier Farnell and RS buckled under the strain of preorders in February. The former outfit later said demand was 20 times greater than its supply, with orders hitting 700 a second at one point. When the first 10,000 devices shipped in mid-April, the organization graciously sent us a sample for coverage. Along with a hands-on review of the Pi, today we'll be covering basic steps for setting up the computer and other elemental post-installation tasks to get you up and running with applications. In other words, this should serve as a starting point no matter what you want to do with your Raspberry Pi.

Asus Essentio CM6870 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:19P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Essentio CM6870 is a great entry-level gaming desktop whose potent combination of a dual-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 545 GPU packs plenty of Molotov into its cocktail while still maintaining affordability for those on a beer budget. Although it doesn`t come in a flashy package like high-end gaming desktops, its ability to nimbly outperform others in its class in multimedia-creation tasks makes it an able competitor."

Posted by: STAFF
Convertible PCs used to be fairly popular when Windows XP Tablet Edition was released but they`ve since mostly faded away. The Dell Latitude XT3 hopes to revive this category with its own convertible PC. It has great battery life, an Intel Core i5 CPU and a 128GB solid-state hard drive."

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.
