Mac mini Computer Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:33A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest rendition of the Mac mini has the same stylish look as previous versions, but what`s under the hood has been revamped. Increased power and a new port have been added, while the CD/DVD drive and some software have been removed. We decided to take a look to determine whether this version is a move forward or a step back."

Lenovo IdeaCentre H330 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 7:47A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Lenovo IdeaCentre H330 is a budget machine that actually outperforms most other similar desktops in its category. It has a sub-$600 price and includes an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 1.5TB hard drive. It also has a slim design, but with that slimness comes less room for future expansion.?"

HP Mini 210 Review: Fusion is Fast but Atoms Last
     Tue, Nov 15 2011 | 3:30P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This praise aside, the HP Mini 210, like most traditional single-core netbooks, sits in a market position that is increasingly awkward. The problem is the lower prices of dual-core netbooks and budget ultraportables. The HP dm1z has now been reduced to an MSRP of $449.99, and the Eee PC 1215B?s initial price of $450 has already been knocked down to about $435 on Amazon. These dual-core AMD Fusion powered netbooks are substantially quicker than the HP Mini 210, but only $100 more."

HP Pavilion Elite h8-1050 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Nov 12 2011 | 10:08A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The HP Pavilion Elite h8-1050 is a media desktop decked out with all the right components to satisfy power users. Blu-ray, TV tuner, and a powerful hardware tag team made up of an Intel Core i7 processor and AMD discrete graphics card is just the tip of the iceberg for this PC.?"

The making of Damagebox 2011

Posted by: STAFF
I`ll admit to being like the proverbial plumber with a leaky sink. When it comes to my own primary personal computer I`ve been borderline neglectful for a little while now. Happily I decided to end all that recently by building myself an excellent new computer."

ASRock CoreHT-252B HTPC
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If, on the other hand, you want an HTPC that can also act as a desktop replacement, look no further. There's adequate power for rendering of all sorts and the included RAM ought to cover most non-professional needs, but, if more is required, the board does support 8GB. Storage can be upgraded to include another 2.5" storage drive, and the included WD Scorpio Black could easily be replaced with an SSD. If more power is needed, the board will support the Core i7 2720m for more processing power (two more cores and threads!). A Blu-ray drive and wireless 802.11n wireless are included as standard."

XFX WarPad
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"My arm never felt better after a long eight-hour day of constant computing and mouse work. I almost felt as if I had more energy to go home and continue my mouse work in a much needed gaming session. When I arrived home, I was greeted with a small complication. The table I am stuck using as a desk this summer has a rather large lip on it – larger than the rated 2" thickness. Needless to say, the WarPad didn’t fit. For the time being, I laid out the pad to enjoy its humongous size anyway. I cannot say exactly how much it improved my skills, but with great confidence I can claim a lot more head shots simply because I could actually keep my mouse on the pad for a change."

Asrock CoreHT 252B HTPC Review
     Tue, Aug 23 2011 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asrock had a hectic showing during this year's Taipei Computex, armed to the teeth with various new products including motherboards based on newfangled chipsets such as the Intel Z68 and AMD 990FX. Despite showcasing a bevy of boards, our interest was piqued by the latest entry in the company's long line of mini PCs. Having crowned Asrock's Vision 3D the ultimate small form factor computer last year, we looked forward to what the company would deliver next. More than six months later, we now have the CoreHT Series, which promises to be the most powerful yet as it adopts the latest Sandy Bridge mobile processors. The CoreHT Series includes three models that mostly vary based on the processor and the optical drive. The flagship model we are testing today is known as the 252B and it sports the Core i5 2520M along with a Blu-ray drive. The 231B gets a slower Core i3 2310M but keeps the Blu-ray drive, while the 231D is outfitted with the 2310M and a DVD drive.

Alienware M18x

Posted by: STAFF
“The Alienware M18x desktop replacement laptop offers a huge 18-inch display, fantastic performance and high-end internal specifications. Behind a rather bland design, however, there is an Intel quad-core CPU, a massive 16GB of memory and dual Nvidia GTX 580M video cards.”

Sapphire Edge HD2 Mini PC Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:10P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“I’ve had a home theater PC for the longest time. My first one was just a normal PC that I connected to my TV. From there it has evolved getting smaller and smaller. With the progression of technology it is very impressive what all we can fit in to a small form factor (SFF) PC. Today we will be checking out the smallest form factor PC that I have ever seen! It is smaller than the Zotac ZBOX HD-AD02, Western Digital Live TV Hub and pretty much every other SFF we have got our hands on. Being super small it is still capable of HD playback, has 2GB of DDR3 memory, a 320GB hard drive, 4 USB port s and WiFi. So what is this SFF PC we are talking about? It is the Sapphire Edge HD2, let’s take a look…"

HP Pavilion Elite h8xt
     Tue, Aug 16 2011 | 5:34P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The HP Pavilion Elite h8xt is a mid-line desktop that offers some kick thanks to the quad-core Intel i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM, but it also has a sleek design that's sure to please. Thanks to its not so high price tag, this HP is a fair buy for users that want good performance without a high price.”

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.
