Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC Review
     Sat, Feb 19 2011 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On our test bench is a product from Sapphire which contains a NVIDIA GPU... yes, NVIDIA. The Edge-HD is a small ATOM/ION system which Sapphire say could be the smallest PC in the world. We will be putting it though a number of real world tests which include Blu-Ray playback, GPU media encoding and power use to find out whether it meets the needs of the average consumer."

Dell Inspiron One 2305
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Dell Inspiron One 2305 (Blu-ray) is a solid all-in-one media desktop PC, but it lacks the applications to make it a worthwhile touch-screen computer. It does have a touch screen, Blu-ray, and competitive performance numbers, which makes it certainly a viable alternative—especially if you're looking for a primary media-center PC.”

Sapphire Edge Mini PC
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I truly believe that Sapphire has found a sweet spot for media pc's. The Edge Mini PC really impressed me with it's design, performance and feature set. All my life computers have been getting smaller and smaller; but all of that didn't prepare me for the Edge. An enclosure the size of a paperback book containing a more-than-capable media PC was somewhat alien to me. Despite its tiny proportions, the design really catches your eye. Sleek curves and the wavy stand ensure it will fit in with any entertainment center. Connectivity, however, was sort of a mixed-bag. Though you're supplied with 4 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and built in Wireless-N the lack of a camera card reader was quite surprising."

Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Housing an entire system in what is the smallest package we've ever seen, the Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC appears to be a very capable little machine for consumers on a tight budget that don't have need of the cost or horsepower of a full-sized desktop system. But does smaller mean less, or do good things really come in small packages? Let's find out.”

Innergie mCube Review
     Sat, Feb 12 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Innergie is a company that specialises in consumer power products. Innergie claims that their mCube Mini is the world's smallest auto and travel plane power adapter. In addition to its small size, this DC/DC power adapter is able to charge laptops requiring up to 65W at 15-21V. As such, it should be able to power most consumer-grade laptops, with the exception of certain gaming laptops that might require more than 95W of power. Not only is the mCube Mini small, it has a sleek white design and it comes bundled with a dozen notebook tips to support almost all laptops.

HP Pavilion P6710F
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Though in many ways identical to its predecessor, the Pavilion p6610f, the introduces two significant changes that help keep this model relevant for 2011. First, HP has bumped up the capacity of its hard drive a full third, from 750GB to 1TB. Perhaps even more significantly, it also costs less—whereas the previous machine cost about $530, you can get one of these for only about $480.“

HP EliteBook 8740w Mobile Workstation
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today I’ve got another laptop for review, this one though is from HP and it’s the 8740w mobile workstation and yes it’s a big laptop, big and heavy. It has a Corei5 520 CPU which is a dual core, but it runs four threads so it appears as a quad core, but that’s not the best part, it features a 17” DreamColor display that is absolutely gorgeous. The battery life isn’t the greatest but I can forgive it for that as it’s just a great laptop altogether. "

HP ZR30w
     Mon, Jan 31 2011 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The HP ZR30w is a 30-inch widescreen LCD dis play that's huge in screen space, but also has some really good performance, including great brightness. However, rather frustratingly, HP decided to leave out an onscreen display (OSD) menu with this monitor, which severely limits the adjustments that users can make.”

Dell Inspiron One 2310 Desktop
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On our test bench today is one of the first samples of Dell's Inspiron One range. With a 23" multi-touch screen, Core i5 CPU, Radeon graphics and Blu-Ray we have an impressive system on paper. We will be putting the Inspiron One through a selection of real world tests which include touch screen gaming (StarCraft 2), media conversion and Blu-Ray playback. Videos of the system in action will of course also be available."

This 11.6-inch laptop has fantastic battery life, excellent performance ratings and a really sleek design. The screen has an HD resolution and the memory is expandable to 8GB, which is huge for a laptop of this size.”

Serenity i7 Sandy Bridge PC
     Tue, Jan 25 2011 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time flies in the tech world. Blink, turn your head for a moment, and today's greatest technology is yesterday's news. So it is with the Serenity PC, SPCR Edition. The previous version turned out to be the quietest computer system we have ever reviewed or even laid our hands on, and probably quieter than any PC will ever be, short of one with no moving parts and zero electronic noise. Another 3.5 months later, the latest version of the Puget Serenity with Sandy Bridge, SPCR Edition, is here.

Dell XPS 17
     Sat, Jan 22 2011 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Dell XPS 17 is a powerhouse of a laptop with a 17-inch display, a quad-core Intel Core i7 740QM CPU, 6GB of RAM and a discrete Nvidia graphics card with 3GB of video memory. While rather on the pricey side, you do get a lot, including a Blu-ray drive and two 500GB hard drives for lots of storage.”

Innergie mCube Mini Review

Posted by: STAFF
"There's nothing more annoying than your various electrical devices running out of power when you're travelling somewhere, except having to buy a lot of different adaptors to keep everything charged. Enter the Innergie mCube Mini, it comes with adaptors for a range of device brands and a plug so you can use it on airplanes. Sounds handy right? Lets see how it does."

Antec ISK100 Mini-ITX Desktop / HTPC Chassis
     Thu, Jan 06 2011 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the recent purchase of a new Samsung TV for my living room, I took the Thermaltake Element Q and set the ZOTAC board to work on a more daily basis in my HTPC setup. As time went on, I realized I was streaming a lot of the movies from the router and had little use for the optical drive I had installed. The second thing that I came to notice was that the onboard video was more than capable of running my TV, so I could ditch the VGA and lessen the electrical draw. This left me wanting another chassis to try out in my HTPC setup that was built more to my new found needs. Antec has developed the newer line of cases called the ISK series. There are a few chassis' in the lineup that offer various features and a range of sizes. Today we are going to take a look at the smallest chassis in that lineup, and it just so happens that this chassis is a better fit to my own personal needs as well. The chassis in question is the ISK100 and we are going to be taking a good look at it today. Join me in seeing just what the ISK offers and just how much Antec packed into this Mini-ITX chassis."

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.
