Posted by: STAFF
"Chillblast is an established UK manufacturer of high end PC systems. Historically the company has focused on products for gamers and enthusiasts, but it is increasingly getting involved with the workstation market as well. Today we are looking at the descriptively, if unimaginatively, named "Chillblast Fusion Photo Workstation PC", pitting it against an equivalently priced workstation from the industry leader - Dell."

Hewlett Packard EliteBook 8560p Notebook Review:
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HP emptied its entire bag of tricks on the EliteBook 8560p, the company's top-end business laptop that employs several features we wish other notebook vendors would adopt. HP tells HotHardware the 8560p is the result of lots of user feedback, sporting several subtle suggestions that combine to make this one of the most enjoyable non-gaming laptops we've ever played with. There are three pre-configured EliteBook 8560p models to choose from priced from $1,100 to $1,500. The one we have in-house is HP's $1,500 model with several pre-configured bells and whistles...

Fractal Design Core 1000 MicroATX HTPC Case @MissingRemote
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our previous looks at Fractal Design (the Define R3 ATX chassis, the Define Mini Micro-ATX Chassis, and just recently the Core 3000) cases they have demonstrated a favor for solid, stylish chassis that consistently deliver without the flashing lights and other bling often found on other enclosures that offer the same space and flexibility. As we have seen, there are many different options offered by Fractal Design. The Fractal Design Core 1000 is the flavor of today?s review. The Core series brings together a combination of design, features, cooling performance, and value. Is this going to be your next HTPC case? The Fractal Design Core 1000 uses the micro ATX chassis very effectively with multiple cooling options. You have a case that give you maximum flow of air but keeps the size small to put beside your TV for a sleek and stylish look. *"

Dell Alienware X51, Small Form Factor PC Gaming Refined:
     Mon, Feb 06 2012 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the test track, Alienware notebooks have racked up some of the best performance numbers we've seen and the company's desktops rank right up there as well. One shape the Aliens have never assumed previously, however, is the small form-factor desktop. And let's be honest, systems in this weight class generally aren't known for their gaming prowess but usually serve as home theater or mainstream PCs. The folks at Alienware have a different sort of vision for their next alien life form and if you weren't paying attention, you'd almost mistake it for a game console rather than a PC. But you're here at HH, so you're obviously paying attention. And so are we. You could say the Alienware X51 gaming PC system got our attention when it hacked into our news channel not long ago. So we decided to send a peaceful return transmission and allow it to touch down on a test pod in our lab.

Dell XPS 15z Notebook PC Review
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 4:45P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks gets a DELL ... * * *Dell XPS 15z Notebook PC Review* ?Dude, get a Dell!? Remember those old ads on TV? It used to be that people would turn to a company like Dell to get an inexpensive laptop that was reasonably reliable and while Dell still has products that lean toward that end of the market, they?ve also got offerings for the higher end of the market too. One such example is the Dell XPS 15z, a premium performance notebook with a huge splash of style."

HP Touchsmart 520 All-in-One PC Review
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 2:09P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TouchSmart 520-1070 is a fairly remarkable AIO equipped with high-end hardware and a robust selection of software, all of which comes wrapped in a 23-inch touchscreen display with a speaker bar blasting out Beats Audio. Any fears that HP's recent preoccupation with righting its ship would result in a degraded product line go right out the window when you run your finger down the 520's spec sheet, which includes an Intel Core i7 2600S processor clocked at 2.8GHz, 8GB of DDR3 system memory, a capacious 2TB hard drive, discrete graphics powered by AMD's Radeon HD 6450A GPU, and even a Blu-ray burner. Oh, and there's a TV tuner shoved inside too, for good measure...

Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG-6614 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Jan 25 2012 | 9:39A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG-6614 is a bit steep in price, but don`t dismiss it. The 15.6-inch Aspire is loaded with everything from Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) to a discrete Nvidia graphics adapter that actually passed our gaming tests at medium resolution and detail settings.?"

Acer Extensa 5420 Retrospective Review: How Far Have We Come?
     Sat, Jan 21 2012 | 9:45A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There?s a long line of common complaints that are leveled at modern laptops including poor display quality, underwhelming build quality, and crappy keyboards. Certainly, there seem to be room for improvement in these areas on many laptops. Yet nostalgia has a tendency to obscure our view of the past. Was that laptop you used to own really superior to anything on the market today? Or is your memory clouded by the good times you had using it at a friend?s LAN party or writing an important paper twelve hours before it was due?"

Acer Aspire S3 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:45A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Ultrabooks have been making themselves known recently, especially at this year`s CES show in Las Vegas. This model, the Acer Aspire S3, is another contender that positions itself near the top of the category. It has an extremely thin, magnesium-alloy body and the power to go along with it, including an Intel Core i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM.?"

TechREACTION Review: Bitfenix Raider
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 6:04A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
: With the system fully built, the Raider does a very good job helping clean up the installation. This will help with air flow in the case and keep your hardware temperatures lower than a congested case. Notice, we did have to take the HDD wall out of the top section for out 480 to fit. That is exactly how this feature is meant to perform, and works to perfection in this case. Overall, the Raider did a great job with the wire management keeping all the excess wires out of the way."

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.
