Posted by: STAFF
Although you wouldn't know it at first glance, the Area-51m is nearly a complete departure from traditional gaming laptop platforms, and one that's strapped with desktop-class processing engines under the hood of its 8.5 pound, 17-inch frame.

HP OMEN Obelisk Review: Powerful, Easily Upgradeable
     Tue, Apr 09 2019 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Purchasing a powerful, good-looking gaming PC used to require a visit to a boutique PC maker or a custom-built system from a local computer shop. There was a time when you couldn’t simply walk into a Future Shop or CompUSA and pick up something roughly equivalent to a DIY gaming system. Nowadays though, PC gaming has gone mainstream, and all of the OEM major players offer ready-built systems that cater to those that may not have the desire to build their own.

Guru3D Rig of the Month
     Thu, Mar 28 2019 | 2:05P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The March 2019 Rig Of The Month is rather unique in the sense that a car and a PC match up, yes he has a white black themed Corvette, and matched his PC to the same design. Meet the Bucket List 2.0 Corvette Tribute from Matthew, which as you can guess originates from the USA.

AWD-IT CR8 NZXT PUBG H700 System Review
     Thu, Mar 28 2019 | 2:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at a pre-built system from AWD-IT. This gaming rig is built around NZXT’s limited edition Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) H700 case, as well as one of the new Radeon VII graphics cards and a Ryzen 7 2700X processor. For £1799.99 it’s not the cheapest system we’ve ever tested, but is it worth the money?

Asrock DeskMini A300 Review
     Thu, Mar 28 2019 | 1:58P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asrock DeskMini A300 is a tiny PC that takes advantage of Ryzen processors. Almost every custom designed mini PC that we've seen to date has used Intel inside and while Intel CPUs are very good, they aren't the best choice for this kind of system. At least if you want to game or do any kind of 3D work, for that AMD's Ryzen APUs are unrivaled.

20 of the Worst PC Setups - February
     Fri, Mar 15 2019 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’m sure at some point you’ve had a bad PC setup. Maybe moving into a new place, waiting for a new desk to arrive or you just ran out of room. I can remember my horrible PC setups from when I was living at the dorms in college. If you have ever ventured over to the Shitty Battlestations sub-reddit you will find a lot of horrible PC setups. We will are going to pick 20 each month and feature them as 20 of the Worst PC setups for that month. Here are some of the bad ones from February."

Kailh Box White switches and RGB lighting
     Thu, Mar 14 2019 | 1:58P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At $70, the presence of Kailh Box White switches and RGB lighting may make the V765 reasonably attractive to gaming keyboard buyers, especially if you’re willing to live with headaches and roll the dice on the prospect of longevity. But you're getting what you pay for.

PC Specialist Octane VI RTX – 9900K & RTX 2080 Max-P
     Mon, Mar 11 2019 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC Specialist has delivered a laptop named Octane VI RTX that combines a desktop Core i9-9900K CPU with a full-on RTX 2080 Max-P graphics chip. This is a beast of a desktop replacement system with a 17.3-inch G-Sync screen that is clearly targeted at the professional market, but we have no doubt that gamers will also be paying attention. Can it play Crysis? Probably (we don’t actually test with Crysis), but can it play Far Cry 5? Heck yes, and it plays it FAST!

Posted by: STAFF
The February Rig Of The Month for 2019 is not necessarily the most beautiful one. However, it is very unique as it is a PC that resides inside a closet/wall.

Corsair ONE i160 Compact Gaming PC
     Thu, Feb 28 2019 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has revamped their desktop lineup with the ONE i160 compact gaming PC. Sporting an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, Intel i9-9900K, and 32 GB of memory, this new system is more than just a bunch of high-end hardware. It's also absolutely tiny. Maybe, they should have called it Little Mac since it packs such a serious punch.

Dell XPS 13 (9380) 2019 Review: So Close To Perfection
     Wed, Jan 23 2019 | 6:18P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The thing about striving for perfection is that it is not truly attainable, and you can drive yourself mad trying to get there. Be that as it may, Dell has come closer than most with its premium line of XPS 13 laptops, which in our experience are some of the finest thin and light notebooks available, both in terms of their beautiful design, as well as all-around performance. The same is certainly true of Dell's latest refresh for 2019, which attempts to refine Dell's award winning 13-inch laptop platform even further...

Samsung's ATIV Book 9-Lite slots in somewhere between mainstream laptop and tablet on steroids, though at first glance it looks unassailably like an Ultrabook.
