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.

several Max-Q notebooks
     Tue, Jul 25 2017 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For gamers looking for a portable gaming machine, that they can take from location to location, set on a table, and start gaming, the Zephyrus is a great option. In this scenario, there is little trade off between a traditional gaming notebook form factor and this Max-Q design. You gain portability while maintaining acceptable performance levels for the integrated 1080p display. Even though performance of the GTX 1080 with Max-Q Design seems to more closely mimic the performance of a desktop GTX 1070, that is still a lot of power for a 1080p screen. And it is possible that other OEMs Max-Q implementations may fare better."

ZenBook 3 UX390UA is a 12.5-inch thin-and-light
     Sun, Jul 23 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ZenBook 3 UX390UA is a 12.5-inch thin-and-light which offers a 1920x1080 IPS display, choice of 7th-generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and a roomy 512GB PCIe SSD. It also features just a single USB Type-C port, eschewing additional I/O in the vein of recent Apple MacBooks (more on this trend later in the review). How does it stack up? I had the pleasure of using it for a few weeks and can offer my own usage impressions (along with those ever-popular benchmark numbers) to try answering that question.

What Games Can Ultrabooks Really Play?
     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Integrated graphics in most ultraportables are not as useless as they once were. It is actually possible to game on an ultrabook, it's just a matter of choosing the game and its settings carefully. We've tested 34 games on a ThinkPad X1 Carbon to give you an idea of what games are actually playable on modern ultraportables.

Notebook vendors increase adoption of mixed material chassis in 2H17
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 7:30P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Notebook brand vendors including Dell and Hewlett-Packard (HP) reportedly will increase their adoption of notebook chassis made of mixed materials in the second half as China has implemented more strict environmental policies and the vendors are hoping the new design could stimulate consumer demand, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Gigabyte Aero 15W-CF2
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 7:05P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte Aero 15 is an intriguing laptop for two main reasons. The first is the way it packs a mid-sized 15.6-inch screen into a laptop that appears to have a 14-inch chassis – that 5mm bezel on the sides and top edge is remarkably slender. The second point is that we rather expected this sleek, light and stylish laptop would be branded as an ‘Aorus’, rather than a ‘Gigabyte’. The explanation we were given is that the Aero 15 runs Windows 10 Professional which means it is intended for business users.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 Review: A Thin
     Tue, Jul 18 2017 | 6:46P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time when laptop options were basically a choice between desktop-like performance in a heavy and bulky form-factor, an ultralight with integrated graphics, or something in the middle, at around 5-lbs with a low-end GPU. NVIDIA sought to solve this choice compromise with its Max-Q Design initiative that was announced at Computex last month. Max-Q Design is a holistic approach to notebook graphics design that ensures a svelte exterior, light weight, quiet cooling, and optimal performance. ASUS and NVIDIA joined forces to produce the 15.6-inch Republic of Gamers (ROG) Zephyrus GX501, the first complete Max-Q Design gaming notebook to hit the market...

Alienware 17 R4 2017 Gaming Laptop Review
     Fri, Jun 30 2017 | 7:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell updated its Alienware 17 gaming laptop at PAX West 2016 with NVIDIA Pascal graphics, but at the time Intel’s quad-core Kaby Lake mobile processors weren’t available yet. It was a short-lived update, however, as the Kaby Lake-powered Alienware 17 was announced a short time later at the start of the Consumer Electronics Show this past January. Today, we’re checking out the newest Alienware 17 R4 gaming laptop featuring the latest of both technologies. The chassis may look familiar, but its all-new on the inside with two 7th-Generation Intel Core i7 processor and four NVIDIA Pascal graphics options available...

Lenovo ThinkPad T470s Review
     Fri, Jun 30 2017 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo has carved out quite a business for itself in the laptop space over the years, led more recently by premium machines like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. However, there are obviously many more models in the ThinkPad family of products, beyond just the top-shelf X1 Carbon line. In the more affordable ThinkPad T470s (starting price of $959), you will find a thin, light ultrabook with many of the features Lenovo is known for, including the usual fantastic keyboard setup and solid performance. At just 2.9 pounds, you’d be forgiven for thinking it doesn’t pack much punch, but this Kaby Lake powered ultrabook can get the job done.
