Dell XPS 18 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, May 14 2013 | 12:12P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 18 is a portable all-in-one desktop PC. Larger than a tablet or laptop, but smaller than a full blown all-in-one desktop, the Dell XPS 18 lets you bring a full Windows 8 PC around the house or office corridors with you. It mostly works, though the market for such a product is still in its beginning stages."

Sapphire Edge VS8 Review: The $500 Mini PC
     Sat, May 11 2013 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While full-sized desktop computers are still around, tablets and smartphones have proven that technology has come far enough to essentially cram a fully capable computer into a space that is suitable for your pants pocket, a purse, or a small backpack. This idea of shrinking hardware hasn’t been overlooked by manufacturers as several now feature space-saving designs based on mobile hardware. Such is the case with Sapphire’s new Edge VS8 mini-PC powered by AMD’s A8 APU. The system is hardly any larger than an external optical drive, while still packing 4GB of DDR3 memory, Radeon HD 7600G graphics, a 500GB SATA HDD, built-in support for Bluetooth 3.0 as well as 802.11 b/g/n wireless and a bevy of rear I/O connections.

ZOTAC ZBOX ID89 Plus Mini-PC Review
     Wed, May 08 2013 | 1:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ZOTAC ZBOX ID89 Plus contains the usual selection of 2.5" hard drive, wireless-n wi-fi and the like but manages to include support for dual channel memory and arrives kitted out with a Core i5 CPU. All in a chassis not much bigger than most external drive enclosures."

Raspberry Pi Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Tue, Apr 30 2013 | 5:17P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raspberry Pi is a small pc that plugs into your TV and has USB inputs for a keyboard and mouse. The computer itself has 512mb of RAM, and runs a Linux based operating system called Debian. It costs around £35 for the computer, but a ?Kit? can be bought for an extra £55 containing all the basic items needed to get the Pi up and running."

PC shipments suffered their greatest decline ever last quarter, in spite of Windows 8 and all those tablet-notebook hybrids. Some say there`s no hope, but I disagree. Because the PC is boomingjust not the PC we know."

Gateway DX4870-UB17 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 12:49P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gateway DX4870-UB17 is the latest budget desktop we`ve seen from the company with the cow print on its logo. It`s a fine replacement for the six-year-old PC you`re thinking about replacing, particularly if you have no need for a touch-enabled all-in-one PC or want to continue to use the LCD monitor you bought a few years ago."

Acer Aspire V5-571P Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 12:22P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So earlier on XSReviews we took a look at the Acer Aspire S7, an 11.6? or 13? Ultrabook with a super svelte design and powerful hardware but dogged with persistently poor battery life. Today, we`re taking a look at what Acer is doing at a more affordable range of the spectrum with the Acer Aspire V5-571P. There are a few different configurations available here, but we`ll be taking a look at the model equipped with a Core i5 processor, a 500 GB mechanical hard drive, 6 GB of RAM and a touch screen. That puts it on the upper end of configurations available, but reflections upon other aspect should be shared between models. Right, let`s get into it, starting with a more detailed look at the specifications available. There`s nothing too out of the ordinary here, so if you`re pressed for time it can make sense to skip over to the unboxing or physical features. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Dell XPS One 27 Review: affordable large screen all-in-one
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you want an all-in-one with a large, beautiful IPS display with a nice resolution of 2560x1440, but don't want to spend an arm and a leg? Then there isn't a whole lot of choice. Apple has the 27-inch iMac, and HP has the even more expensive Z1 workstation, but now Dell has entered the fray with the more affordable XPS 27, also called the XPS 2710. And it's an excellent all-in-one. The beautiful 27-inch IPS display has outstanding colors, and the high 2560x1440 resolution makes it a great computer to work with.

Diamond BizView 750 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Apr 16 2013 | 5:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to options for upgrading some of todays small PCs from manufacturers like Dell to be able to handle even the most basic games can sometimes be difficult. Its one thing if your pc supports a full height video card, but if you need half height the options are limited. That problem is multiplied when you also have to consider how much power the power supply has, generally PCs like this dont have 6 pin connections free and sometimes not even Molex plugs. That is where products like the Diamond BizView 750 come in. The BizView is focused on business use, but with it being an HD 7750 it could also be perfect for light gaming as well."

GUNNAR Vinyl Onyx Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 9:33A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the world of computing today, there are many companies and brands which provide a multitude of products. Ranging from the budget conscientious to the high end enthusiast, there is massive selection of products available on the market. Whether you`re a general computer user or a professional gamer, computer screens and other digital devices can cause a condition called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) which causes a variety of symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, eye strain and difficulty in refocusing your eyes. With many brands providing healthier solutions to use your PC including products such as padded mouse mats and keyboard wrist rests to combat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, one company in particular has dedicated themselves to reducing the effects of CVS on our eyes."

[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone PP06 Individually Sleeved PSU Cables
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 9:19A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the unique design traits to SilverStone`s modular power supplies is that they`re fully modular. Where as most manufacturers will hard wire the mandatory cables, usually the motherboard, EPS/ATX and one PCIE connector, SilverStone has opted to make even those cables removable. Their reasoning behind this design choice is well justified though; they have a variety of after market cable options that can do everything from giving you short cables for small form factor cases, or premium looking cables for enthusiasts with windowed cases. Today I have the PP06 cables here which have each individual wire (not wire strand, but wire) sleeved in a premium quality material mesh sleeving. The PP06 cables look great at first glance and are bound to add some flashy looks to your case, so let`s check them out!"

Updated to the latest Ivy Bridge mobile hardware, the ASRock VisionX HTOC is a high-power HTPC option that is ready to knock the socks off its competitors. Packed with a powerful AMD Radeon GPU and a Blu-Ray drive, the ASRock VisionX HTOC isn`t only pretty to look at, it also puts on a good show!"

AVADirect Mini Gaming PC: Titan in a Small Package
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building a small form factor gaming PC is a tricky business. For one thing, there simply isn't enough room to fit as many components as you would put in a mid- or full-size gaming PC. Multiple graphics cards aren't likely, and oversized power supplies (not to mention CPU heatsinks) usually present major challenges. The other issue is the heat: with space at a premium, good airflow becomes even more important, but all the harder to preserve. And don't expect your customers to give you leeway on performance, looks, or (and this might be the toughest target of all) noise. But it's not a lost cause, especially with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan delivering so much power (and whisper-quiet cooling) in a single card. AVADirect thinks it has threaded the needle with its latest Mini Gaming PC, built around NVIDIA's latest powerhouse. house. Let's take a look...

Maingear Potenza Super Stock Review: Cool and Quiet
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 1:42P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's a lot to love about a mini-ITX gaming PC. Portability is a big draw, of course: carrying your computer through the parking lot to a LAN party is much easier if it happens to be an SFF system. Reclaiming desk space is another reason to go small. And some of us just take a lot of pleasure in knowing that our tiny, unassuming PC will drop a few jaws when it's game time. With an Intel Core i7 3770 and an MSI GeForce GTX 660 at its heart, Maingear's mini-ITX Potenza only looks mild-mannered. In fact, Maingear offers the system with up to a Core i7-3770K and a GTX Titan, but Maingear sent us a slightly tamer unit to show what it can do in the $1600 range...

Apple iMac 27 inch 2012 review
     Thu, Apr 04 2013 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This version of the 27-inch iMac is a very fast system, and it still of course has the outstanding 27-inch 2560x1440 display. We loved how the Fusion Drive works in MacOS X. It strikes the perfect balance between having a fast SSD and lots of storage, and it automatically prioritizes which applications and data are stored where.

Dell XPS 10 review: Windows RT according to Dell
     Tue, Apr 02 2013 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 10 is a successful combination of laptop and tablet. If you're considering the XPS 10, we would recommend getting it with the keyboard dock as it's definitely worth it. It turns it into a true mini-laptop with touchscreen with outstanding battery life and very decent performance from the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4.

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.
