LUXA2 PL2 6000mAh Leather Power Bank Review
     Tue, Aug 19 2014 | 8:22A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mobile phones have become indispensable to most of us in recent years. What started as a mere communication tool has now blossomed into the way many of us consume information, through news, media and social interactions. However, one aspect of contemporary smartphones that cannot beat the traditional (speaker) solution, is their ability to produce audio. Mostly that is to do with space. There is only so much a speaker can do when it is limited to a size that is measured in millimeters rather than inches. But fortunately there are alternatives to having lackluster, loudspeaker audio ? portable speakers, like the new GroovyW from LUXA2."

WaterField VertiGo and Sleevecase @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Aug 12 2014 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I picked up a new laptop this year, I had a strict set of requirements for a new laptop bag. I wanted something that matched the portability of my new Yoga 2 Pro, something that was different from the standard run of the mill bags, and something that fit the laptop perfectly. Surprisingly trying to find a laptop bag that fit an ultrabook was a lot harder than I thought, most manufactures ignore the laptop thickness and just size by the screen size. I did run across a company called WaterField that makes a wide variety of bags, including bags to fit my laptop. Today I’m going to take a look at their VertiGo Travel Bag and a Sleevecase to keep my Yoga 2 Pro nice and safe.

Posted by: STAFF
Despite its $149 asking price, Asus' Memo Pad ME176C tablet has a quad-core Bay Trail SoC, a 7" IPS display, and little extras like a Micro SD slot and GPS functionality. We take a quick look at this budget slate to see how well Android runs on x86 hardware--and whether a $149 tablet can deliver a good experience.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 Android Tablet Review - Utilizing NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC
     Sun, Aug 10 2014 | 6:07A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 7.9 is an interesting product that will have little impact on the US market. As a device that is not intended to be imported here, it is really just an educational venture for us to test it and evaluate it. Even so, the results were damned impressive and the performance of the Tegra K1 SoC really came through in both the CPU and GPU results. By integrating a full Kepler SMX in the design, the graphics performance of the Mi Pad is unrivaled in the tablet market. However as it stands now, there are a very limited number of applications or games that can even truly show the performance the K1 can offer. As the K1 implementations increase though, that will likely improve."

NVIDIA Tegra 4-based tablets
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The first unit is a 7" device designed by NVIDIA and manufactured by EVGA, hence the EVGA Tegra NOTE 7 name. Marketed mostly to gamers, this tablet comes with an impressive feature set for the $199 MSRP asking price. The second tablet is the latest member of the Transformer Pad lineup from ASUS. It's a high end tablet that comes with a hefty $449.99 price tag, but sports one of the most beautiful displays I've ever seen in a portable device."

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet with Tegra K1 and SHIELD Controller
     Mon, Jul 28 2014 | 6:07A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Though this is just a preview and announcement, the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet creates an interesting debate. Is there a market for a gaming specific tablet? NVIDIA sure thinks that is the case and is betting yet another generation of Tegra SoC on it. Even though the Tegra 4 based SHIELD portable was a unique and interesting product, it`s financial status isn`t where it needs to be. My experiences at Quakecon this past weekend tell me that gamers actually do like what SHIELD offers but they need to see it and use before they can be convinced."

MeMO Pad 7 Review: Intel Bay Trail Inside
     Fri, Jul 25 2014 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS recently refreshed its 7-inch MeMO Pad 7 tablet with Intel’s new Atom Z3745 Bay Trail-based processor. Having overcome its rocky start, the latest generation of Atom processors is building a reputation for power efficiency and computational chops. Despite its early days in ill-fated netbooks, today's Atom looks to be a good fit for tablets and smartphones and sports new-found graphics horsepower that is up to the task for these types of devices. We checked out the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 ME176C, which comes in at a relatively affordable $149.99, in light of competing tablets in this category...

ThinkPad 10 Windows 8.1 Bay Trail Tablet Review
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a followup to its ThinkPad 8 tablet, Lenovo has now incorporated Intel's Bay Trail platform into its larger ThinkPad 10, a business-ready slate the company claims can offer users a full PC experience. Stopping there would be selling this tablet a bit short, however, as it's really a multi-mode device that can serve a number of purposes, both during and after business hours. Ideally, this would negate the need to purchase separate systems for work and play. What Lenovo's really doing here is tapping into the potential of Microsoft's Windows 8.1 ecosystem. From the beginning, Microsoft envisioned Windows 8/8.1 as a universal operating system built for work, play, and everything in between, but software will only get you so far. It's up to Microsoft's hardware partners to figure out how best to take advantage of Windows 8.1, and with the ThinkPad 10, Lenovo's answer is to accessorize the platform...

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.
