Sapphire Mini E350
     Sun, May 15 2011 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We're looking at the Sapphire Mini E350 motherboard embedded with the AMD E350 APU. The E350 is AMD's latest release CPU renamed an Accelerated Proccessing Unit(APU). Fusion has been talked about for some time and it has now become a reality."

Acer Iconia Tab A500
     Fri, May 13 2011 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Acer's Honeycomb tablet, the Iconia Tab A500, has similar strengths and weaknesses to its direct competitors, but its $450 price is easier to swallow than some others. It has a speedy Tegra 2 processor, a high-resolution screen and solid connectivity options.”

Acer Aspire One 522-BZ897
     Fri, May 13 2011 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Aspire One 522-BZ897 is a 10.1-inch netbook with a 250GB hard drive, a multitouch trackpad and AMD's latest Fusion dual-core processor. The standard 1GB of RAM is much too small for great performance, so a RAM upgrade is a must with this netbook.”

TweakTown Commander PC Benchmarked
     Sun, May 08 2011 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is always a great article to do as it really gives us a chance to show people just what the parts we recommend in our Commander based system are capable of. It's one thing to point people in the direction of parts, but it's another to show them the kind of performance they're able to get when combining those parts together. As we treat the Commander PC as a system, we will take a slightly different approach to it than we normally would when reviewing a video card; instead we'll add some system benchmarks into the mix. Before we look at the performance side of things, we'll first have a closer look at the Commander PC and some of the key components."

HP 2711x
     Wed, May 04 2011 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Whether you're working with multi-page documents and spreadsheets or fragging your way to glory in the latest first person shooter, it's almost always better on a big screen. Enter the HP 2711x, a slender, 27-inch monitor that delivers good color and motion performance and is eco-friendly as well. However, you don't get many extras with this model, and it has grayscale and viewing angle issues.”

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Processor Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 5:26P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we have the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition on our test bench and will see how it compares to one of the latest Intel CPUs as well as existing AMD models in a selection of synthetic and real world tests which include Blu-Ray 3D, 3DMark and media conversion."

ASUS Eee PC 1215N
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 3:38P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Should you buy the Eee PC 1215N? That depends on your priorities. There are much quicker laptops of similar size priced between $100 and $200 more, and in terms of bang-for-your-buck, they make more sense. The 11.6” Acer Timeline X with the Core i3 processor is one great example. However, the ASUS Eee PC 1215N has advantages over many such competitors."

System76 Serval Professional Sandy Bridge
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The past few months on Phoronix and OpenBenchmarking.org you may have noticed several Intel Core i7 "Sandy Bridge" mobile benchmarks. This Linux mobile SNB testing was being done from a System76 Serval Professional notebook. Here is a look at this Linux-friendly notebook that ships with Ubuntu 10.10."

Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:23P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
More compact, quieter but still more powerful - that is what the Sapphire Edge-HD aims to deliver. The Mini-PC boasts the new ION2 chipset along with an Atom N510 dual-core processor. We open the power efficient system up to see what else makes it tick. Does the Edge-HD have what it takes to stand out in the crowded Nettop market?

Cyberpower Gamer Xtreme 4000 Sandy Bridge System Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:50P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What can be said about a full system that does exactly what we expected it to do? More specifically, what can't we say! In short, this system pretty much rocked the socks off of everything I am currently using in my main system. Time for an upgrade. Well, first I'll have to convince the wife that a shiny new CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 is worth skipping a few meals. I'm not saying that the CyberPower Gamer Xtreme 4000 is expensive; quite the contrary. If you were to purchase all of the parts to build a comparable system at Newegg.com, you may just be surprised..."

HP Pavilion g6x
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 3:32P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The HP Pavilion g6x is a sub-$600 15-inch laptop that offers a speedy Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and large 500GB hard drive. It has a sturdy, attractive design and offers really solid performance for the everyday user without having to spend a lot of money.”

Dell XPS x8300-5215NBM
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 6:07A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“In the back and forth battle for the power users' heart, the Dell XPS x830-5215NBK wins the title of best Mainstream Multimedia desktop. It has a fairly high-end graphics card, plus a high-end second-generation Intel Core processor under its championship belt.”

Zotac Zbox HD Blu-Ray All-in-One Mini-PC
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 1:12A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not everyone wants to build their own HTPC, and despite the relative small size of most HTPC cases compared to a full tower for example, they're still fairly large next to most other electronic devices in a home theater environment. The Zotac Zbox on the other hand, is a fully functional HTPC in a very slim size; about the same as the average netbook. Offering a choice of barebone or pre-configured hardware, the model we have for review today includes the Intel Atom D525 dual-core CPU, nVidia ION2 graphics, 250Gb hard drive, 2Gb of memory and a slot-loading Blu-Ray drive. Add to that Gigabit wired and 802.11n wireless networking, 6-in-1 card reader, HDMI, USB3 and eSATA, and you've got a huge amount of functionality packed into one tiny device."

Sapphire Edge Mini PC Review
     Mon, Apr 11 2011 | 6:18P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Well here’s an alternative to the HTPC and lounge media center, possibly the smallest full scale PC around: the Sapphire Edge Mini PC. It’s about the size of a DVD case and comes packing HDMI out, dual core atom CPU, a 512 MB nVidia ION 2 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 250GB of storage and gigabit ethernet. Should make for an interesting combination. Let’s see how it performs."

Core i5-2520QM and Asus' K53E 15-Inch Notebook - The HH Review
     Sat, Apr 09 2011 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Sandy Bridge wrinkles firmly tucked away, Intel is continuing to flesh out their mobile offering with a new, more moderately priced dual-core CPU that brings all of their latest technologies to bear in a 2.53GHz chip called the Core i5-2520QM. With Turbo Boost technology available for busts of performance on demand, this four-thread capable CPU should be a popular configuration in the midrange class of multimedia notebooks. The Asus K53E was the vehicle of choice that Intel went with for our testing and evaluation requirements here today and it's a looker.

Gateway DX4320-45
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Gateway DX4320-45 exists as a middle child between the "lower end" small form factor (SFF) SX series, and the high-end gaming-oriented FX series. Like a stereotypical middle child, it's way too easy to look at this desktops shortcomings in comparison to its siblings, and that's the problem.”

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

Rating:
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.
