     Wed, Jan 08 2020 | 12:58P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" ASUS today announced the new ProArt StudioBook Pro 15, the most compact model of the Studiobook series for content creators to carry on the go. It offers the perfect balance of Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor, NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 5000 graphics, 3-way NanoEdge display design, and an effective cooling system that lets you blaze through any intensive creating tasks.

Packed with a big punch, its powerful NVIDIA® Quadro RTX™ 5000 Max Q graphics and Intel® Core™ i7-9750H processor provides a super-smooth experience for multitasking duties that take mobile computing to the next level. Its magnesium-alloy chassis design is lightweight, which allows room for movability while being durable and resistant to everyday wear and tear. With the workstation having a more compact footprint, the three-sided NanoEdge boasts 7.5mm-thin top and side bezels, giving StudioBook Pro 15 an 82% screen-to-body ratio for immersive visuals.

Its comprehensive I/O port features it’s compatibility with a wide range of devices and peripherals. In addition to the USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C™, there is a USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A port and two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports for the essentials. There’s also Display Port over USB-C, and HDMI 2.0 for 60Hz 4K UHD output to external displays. The device is also ISV certified to ensure it works as expected with professional applications from the world’s leading software companies.

The 4K UHD panel on StudioBook Pro 15 delivers 4x the detail of FHD display. This PANTONE Validated display features 100% Adobe RGB color gamut and Delta-E < 1.5, offering color calibration technology that automatically adjusts display brightness and settings for exceptional color accuracy on detailed photo visuals.

The full cooling system uses a mix of hardware and software to ensure optimal cooling for light or heavy tasks. Six heat pipes draw heat away from the CPU and GPU, and the ultra-thin copper fins of the four heatsinks also help dissipate heat efficiently.

In addition to the comprehensive cooling system, the Studiobook also comes with an impressive sound system. Developed by the ASUS Golden Ear audio engineering team, its stereo configuration delivers a range of multilayered sound with rich, thumping bass, and sparkling highs. ASUS SonicMaster Premium goes beyond the ordinary by giving you the full-range stereo sound experience."

Dell's XPS family of premium laptops has long been synonymous with excellent performance and build quality. In particular, the XPS 13 lineup has included some of the most highly awarded ultraportable PCs on the market today. Today, we have Dell's latest XPS 13 on hand: model 7390, which is a 2-in-1 model with a 360 degree hinge and a 13.3-inch multi-touch IPS display that converts what looks like an otherwise-traditional laptop into a tablet. Perhaps more importantly, this is the first retail notebook we've gotten our mitts on with Intel's 10nm CPUs, codenamed Ice Lake, in tow. In fact, Dell says this is the first notebook shipped to market with an Ice Lake processor inside...

     Fri, Sep 20 2019 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The modern work place is everywhere. Thanks to the need to attract top talent, many employers have lenient work from home policies that allow many employees who would normally be in an office to work from almost anywhere. Without the advent of fast portable PCs to do that work, however, this wouldn't be as easy as folding up a laptop and taking it with you. There are also plenty of road warriors who spend more than half their working lives traveling, and those folks need (or want) good-looking, fast mobile PCs like he Zbook 14u G6 we'll be showing you here, to take with them.

Wintel moves to promote dual-screen notebooks
     Fri, Sep 13 2019 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The saturated notebook market has long been in lack of wow factors to stimulate demand.

MSI Trident A Review
     Fri, Sep 06 2019 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI Trident A, despite the big drop in asking price, still packs a hell of a punch with a 9th Gen. Intel Core i5 9400 processor, rocking 6 cores at up to 4.1GHz with a relatively small 65W TDP for, hopefully, quieter operation. Bolstering that performance is 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD for larger storage requirements.

MSI GT76 Titan DT 9SG Laptop Review – the 5GHZ laptop
     Fri, Aug 30 2019 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We got our first look at the MSI GT76 Titan back in May, just before Computex. We then followed up than initial hands-on with a sit-down preview of the system last month, and now we can present our full review of this machine. It is a total beast in every sense of the word, weighing over 4kgs (plus two 330W power bricks) and packing a desktop i9-9900K processor which MSI claims can overclock to 5GHz on all cores. When you factor in the gargantuan £4499 asking price, it is clear this machine is not for the faint of heart.
