Deep-Dive Look At Dell's XPS 13 (2015) Ultrabook
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 2:38P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell took the wraps off a fresh, new revamp of their popular XPS 13 ultrabook line, out at CES in Las Vegas last week. The new machine was widely considered best-of-show for core computing products and racked-up awards left and right from major publications, including accolades with us here. Dell seemingly hit all the high notes with this machine, from its new 14nm Intel Core i5-5200U Broadwell-U processor power plant, to its absolutely stunning 13.3-inch 3200X1800 IPS display that's strapped with Corning Gorilla Glass NBT and nearly completely devoid of bezel on its side and top edges.

Poweradd Pilot X1 5200mAh Battery Charger Review
     Wed, Jan 14 2015 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve got a quick review for you today of a small portable battery from Poweradd called the Pilot X1. This battery is 5200mAh in capacity and should provide about two charges for most phones out there today. The Pilot X1 is small and portable, really pocket size and it’s well made and best of all it’s inexpensive coming in at under fifteen dollars. The Pilot X1 has a single USB port on it for charging but it also has a built-in LED light so it would be great for emergency situations or taking it with you on a hike or camping.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet: The Fastest Tablet Available
     Thu, Jan 01 2015 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week, NVIDIA officially announced the SHIELD tablet (powered by the Tegra K1 SoC) and its companion SHIELD wireless controller. To quickly recap, the SHIELD tablet’s specifications include NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC (clocked at up to 2.2GHz), paired to 2GB of RAM and an 8”, full-HD IPS display, with a native resolution of 1920x1200. There are also a pair of 5MP cameras on the SHIELD tablet (front and rear), 802.11a/b/g/n 2x2 MIMO WiFi configuration, GPS, a 9-axis motion sensor, and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. A few days after the initial announcement was made, we got our hands on a SHIELD tablet, wireless controller, and cover. We’re still working (and playing) with the SHIELD tablet, and will be posting up some more information about its gaming prowess in the days ahead, but in the meantime, we thought you’d all like to take to see just how the device performs...

MSI GT60 Dominator Pro Gaming Laptop Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's Dominator Pro GT60 packs two significant firsts. It's the first high-end gaming laptop we've reviewed with a HiDPI display (the GT60's 2880x1660 panel is the equal of the vaunted MacBook Pro's Retina display), and it's the first system we've looked at to sport NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 880M. MSI has also packed this system with a plethora of high-end components in a bid to challenge the dominance of more conventional boutique builders like Alienware. We'll be comparing and contrasting the GT60 against the Alienware 17 we reviewed recently to give you a sense of how the two systems compare head to head. First, though, we want to talk about the specs MSI has brought to the table and the total system package.

Alienware Unveils New Alienware 13 Gaming Notebook
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We got the chance to spend some time with the folks at Dell Alienware and check out the just-announced Alienware 13 and its companion external Graphics Amplifier just a few days ago. We brought a camera along to capture some of the action and have some video along with all of the notebook’s juicy details posted for all to see. In the video, we’ll give you a quick tour of the Alienware 13, the external Graphics Amplifier, and the Alien Adrenaline real-time performance monitoring utility, which can monitor everything from the notebook’s internal components to the graphics card plugged into the Graphics Amplifier enclosure...

Lenovo Y70 Touch Gaming Notebook Review
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 4:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past several years, Lenovo has been aggressively targeting PC gamers, who are known both for their willingness to drop serious cash on hardware and for their skepticism of mainstream brands. Lenovo inherited some of IBM’s corporate image when it took over the company’s laptop business, but winners like the Yoga line got Lenovo tons of exposure with mainstream consumers too. Along the way, the entertainment-friendly Y series of laptops became Lenovo’s gaming line: a suite of affordable systems that brought Lenovo’s understated design sense to bear in a market awash in garish colors, lights, and gimmicks. The Y70 Touch is Lenovo’s flagship mobile gaming PC, so we took it out for a spin...

Silverstone MS06 2.5? USB3 Enclosure with Docking Station Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 8:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Drive enclosures aren’t anything new and neither are hot-swap drive bays, but it is rare that we see the two combined in the way Silverstone has done with the MS06 2.5-inch USB 3.0 HDD/SSD enclosure with 3.5-inch hot-swap drive bay. Now that’s a really long name, so I’ll just refer to it as Silverstone MS06 from now on. It is great to have a drive in an ejectable enclosure so you can take it with you on the go, but it isn’t everyone that has the same docking system. In fact, it will most likely be difficult to find anyone among your friends who uses the same system. At least this is the case when we talk traditional hot-swap bays. To combat this issue, Silverstone created their MS06 enclosure on a pure USB 3 basis that in return allows for full compatibility with almost any system. When you leave your home, you just press the eject button, grab the drive and the included USB3 cable and you ready to head out on your adventures.

Asus TP300L Transformer Book Flip Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 12:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus TP300L Transformer Flip is a 13.3-inch thin and light laptop that doubles up as a Windows 8.1 touch screen tablet. This is a neat trick that hinges, ahem, around the hinge. Instead of simply allowing you to open the screen and fold it back to a comfortable viewing angle you can swing the screen through a full 360 degrees until it ends up on the underside of the keyboard.

MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro 15.6 inch Laptop Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 11:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have a very special review for our readers, a look at the world’s slimmest and lightest 15.6 inch Gaming Notebook. The MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro is currently available in 3 different flavours – one will ship with a 3K screen, another with Nvidia GTX860M discrete graphics. The model we are looking at today however is the most interesting. It ships with a Core i7 4700HQ CPU, a powerful Nvidia GTX870M GPU, 256GB Solid State Storage in ‘Super Raid’ and a more usable 1080p Anti-Glare eDP Wide View angle panel. MSI pack in 8GB of fast DDR3 memory and another 1TB of mechanical storage to sweeten the deal. At only £1,399 is this one of the most portable, but powerful gaming laptops money can buy?

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you're looking for the best Android tablet money can buy, look no further than the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. With a Tegra K1 processor and NVIDIA's constantly evolving SHIELD platform, which includes such great features like GameStream and Gamepad Mapper, there's a lot to love. In fact, the only tablets that truly surpass the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet are a few high-end tablets running Windows 8.1, but you're also talking about ones that are more than double the price.”

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.
