Lenovo Legion Y720 Review: High Performance
     Sat, Oct 14 2017 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PC gaming market continues to grow, thanks in part to the increasing popularity of eSports. While Lenovo is best known for its Thinkpad and Yoga family of notebooks with legendary reliability and slick form factors, it was time the company got serious about gaming. So, Lenovo took the plunge and launched a new sub-brand at CES this year – Legion. The new Legion family of gaming notebooks include the entry-level Y520, mid-level Y720, and high-end Y920. Lenovo sent over the mid-level 15.6-inch Legion Y720 series for us to check out, which provides a step up in build quality over the entry-level Y520 without going all-in with the beefier 17.3-inch Y920. The headlining feature of the Legion Y720 series is the standard VR-ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB graphics...

Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 Review
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newest version of the Surface Pro is the best implementation yet of what many consider to be the top detachable on the market right now. It is the culmination of hits, misses and refinements throughout the years, and while this newest version does not introduce any revolutionary changes, it features a handful of improvements—longer battery life, a more flexible kickstand, etc.—that keeps it in the discussion as arguably the best hybrid mobile device available.

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition Laptop Preview: Ode To A Mobile Workhorse
     Fri, Oct 06 2017 | 8:47A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If ever there was a brand of laptops that folks might refer to as “iconic,” it would be Lenovo’s ThinkPad line of business-class machines. The ThinkPad line was also a very successful go-to notebook brand for many mainstream consumers over the years as well. Known for their minimalist, straight-forward but highly functional design characteristics, the first ThinkPad was initially introduced by IBM in 1992. Lenovo then moved in to acquire IBM’s PC business in 2005. And so, if you’re already doing the math, today actually marks the 25th anniversary of the venerable, and yes iconic, ThinkPad laptop computer. It also happens to be the day Lenovo is taking the wraps off a new machine that was designed and built to commemorate the ThinkPad’s birthday milestone. Behold, the Lenovo ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition, a machine that aims to blend the tried and a true, classic ThinkPad design with the latest in laptop PC technologies...

NVIDIA's Max-Q design notebooks
     Fri, Sep 08 2017 | 4:04P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Attempting to address the problem of loud gaming notebooks, NVIDIA released a technology called WhisperMode. WhisperMode launched alongside NVIDIA's Max-Q design notebooks earlier this year, but it will work with any notebook enabled with an NVIDIA GTX 1060 or higher. This software solution aims to limit noise and power consumption of notebooks by restricting the frame rate of your game to a reasonable compromise of performance, noise, and power levels. NVIDIA has profiled over 400 games to find this sweet spot and added profiles for those games to WhisperMode technology.

NVIDIA's Whisper Mode For GeForce-Powered Gaming Laptops
     Fri, Aug 25 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A new feature of NVIDIA's latest GeForce technology for laptops that we weren't able to fully evaluate until now, is something NVIDIA calls Whisper Mode. Like its recently introduced Max Q technology that paves the way for thinner and lighter gaming laptops such as the ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501, Whisper Mode is another type of mobile gaming optimization, except it focuses on noise output with the intrinsic benefit of lower power draw as well. Short and to the point, it is an intelligent framerate pacing technology designed to lower GPU power consumption, utilization, and ultimately fan noise, while still delivering a smooth and playable gaming experience...

Asus ROG Zephyrus
     Tue, Aug 22 2017 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus ROG Zephyrus is the flagship model for Nvidia's Max-Q initiative. It packs a fully-fledged GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5, a Core i7-7700HQ and 16GB of RAM, inside a chassis that's 17.8mm thick and 2.3 kg heavy. This makes the Zephyrus the slimmest GTX 1080 laptop on the market, and by a significant margin, too.

ASUS ZenBook Deluxe 3 UX490UA Review
     Sat, Aug 12 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has earned high praise over the years for its ZenBook line of ultraportables. They marry sleek ultrabook designs with generally good value. The ASUS ZenBook Deluxe 3 UX490UA is the big brother of the UX390UA we previously reviewed. It is, essentially, the same laptop bumped up from a 12.5-inch display to a 14-inch display. It’s got the same overall design signature and major features. The machine even comes with a similar carrying case. It’s available in Royal blue and Quartz Grey. We found a lot to like about that smaller 12.5-inch model, along with a few caveats, and most of that holds true of this larger model...

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet (2nd Gen) Review
     Mon, Jul 31 2017 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
View this email in your browser There is a new-found push to market, lightweight 2-in-1 devices as productivity tools for business-savvy road warriors. That has occasionally been an angle, though for the most part, the appeal of these convertible systems has largely been their ability to function as both a tablet and a general purpose laptop for lightweight computing or media consumption duties. There have been previous attempts to expand the 2-in-1 category into the business market, and that is where Lenovo's new ThinkPad Tablet X1 Tablet fits in.

Acer Predator 21 X Laptop
     Wed, Jul 26 2017 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Predator 21 X is a huge laptop that is packed with top notch gaming hardware. The headline feature is the curved IPS panel with a refresh rate of 120Hz that sports G-Sync technology. There is minor controversy about the size of the screen as the specification says 21-inches and our tape measure suggests 21.5-inches but what the heck, it’s a mere detail (and measuring a curved screen is an inexact science anyway.) The rest of the specification includes a mobile Core i7, dual GTX 1080 GPUs in SLI and a bunch of DDR4 memory along with a pair of SSDs in RAID 0. It’s a gaming beast of a laptop but that knowledge does not prepare you for the size and weight of the Predator 21 X.
