Acer TA272 HUL All-in-One Review
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Veering off the beaten path, Acer decided to see what would happen if they took the traditional AIO formula, threw out the Windows operating system and PC hardware, replacing it instead with high-end smartphone guts powered by Android. They nailed the key component of the system -- the display -- as its AIO is built on top of an existing monitor, the T272 HUL, offering 10-point multi-touch and a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. But does Android make sense on the desktop?

Sandberg Solar PowerBank 6000 mAh
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 3:50P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I may not be much of a camping person especially not in the woods like some people i know but i do like spending much time on the beach and on the mountain so to avoid any unpleasant circumstances i always like to carry a portable battery pack along with me (actually i have two one in my backpack and one in the car just in case) but the bad thing with such devices is that you need to recharge them every now and then to ensure that they have some battery juice left in them in case you need it. Luckily manufactures came up with a somewhat brilliant solution to that issue and so there are currently quite a few portable battery pack models in the market that also feature a solar panel at the top which can be recharged by using the energy from the sun if the battery happens to be empty. Sandberg has been manufacturing interesting gadgets for quite some time now and since they just launched their very first 6000mAh solar PowerBank we decided to check it out."

MSI GE60 2PE Apache Pro 15.6in gaming
     Mon, Apr 14 2014 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Laptops are rarely given much credit when it comes to gaming ability, but the GE60 2PE Apache Pro from MSI has the potential to turn that idea on its head. Packing the ‘hot-off-the-shelf’ Nvidia GTX 860M, an Intel i7 4700 HQ CPU with 12GB of DDR3 and a 128GB SSD – the specs, on paper, are impressive. Read on to see how well this new MSI laptop does when we put it through some intensive testing.

Speedlink Strike FX-6 Bluetooth PS3 Gamepad Review
     Fri, Apr 04 2014 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
£35 at most major retailers even after the introduction of the PlayStation 4. The Speedlink Strike FX-6 that I’ll be taking a look at today costs just £25 and while that doesn’t sound like a huge difference, I know there are a lot of people who would rather have the extra £10 left in their wallet after a trip to the shops. There are many reasons for wanting a lower cost controller, the first one is obviously a financial reason, sometimes you just need a spare controller for the kids or a backup one should yours break. Of course cheaper is often associated with lower quality too, and as many of you will know, there is a reason that the official controllers cost more, they’re high quality and guaranteed to be compatible with your system. Today I’ll be looking for nothing less than on par or better performance than the official controller and expecting all features (or more) than you would find on the official controller, despite the lower cost. Most 3rd party controllers are wired, most often in a bid to keep the cost down and make them a financially attractive option compared to their more expensive official counterparts, but the Speedlink Strike FX-6 is fully wireless using the same Bluetooth technology that you’ll find in the official controller, it also features 6-axis, rumble, a USB rechargeable built-in battery pack. Basically, it has everything that you’ll find on the official controller, the only two minor differences are that this doesn’t come with the USB cable and it also comes fitted with a rapid fire mode. The controller comes packed in one of those awful blister packs that takes a chainsaw to break into, but at least the clear plastic gives you a good view of the product should be looking at it in a retail outlet. On the front you’ll see a few badges detailing the major features such as 6-axis support, Bluetooth and vibration.

ASUS Zenbook UX301LA: A Nice Intel Ultrabook For Linux
     Tue, Apr 01 2014 | 3:55P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As I wrote about at the beginning of March, I bought the ASUS Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T Haswell-based ultrabook to replace an Apple Retina MacBook Pro as my main system. I've been using this latest Zenbook with Intel Iris Graphics and dual SSDs for several weeks now as my main system and have taken it on four business trips so far and it's been running great. Paired with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, the ASUS Zenbook UX301LA makes a rather nice lightweight yet powerful Linux system."

Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro Ultrabook Review
     Wed, Mar 26 2014 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The original Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga made headlines with its unique hinge lid design that allowed the lid to be flipped completely over turning the laptop into a tablet. On top of that the design made for some other useful modes as well. Lenovo is back with the brand new Yoga 2 Pro, which is one of the best Ultrabooks that I have seen to date. Lenovo has kept the same lid design, but has made the unit thinner and lighter. On top of that the hardware inside has been upgraded and Lenovo has added a QHD+ display giving users 3200 x 1800 is screen real estate to work with. Is this the Ultrabook to have this year? Read on as we find out…"

Lenovo Miix 2 8 Review
     Sat, Mar 22 2014 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Miix 2 8 isn’t geared up for high performance tasks, nor does it have top-end features, but its Intel Atom x86-capable processor and 1280 x 800 display present very decent value for the tablet’s $240 asking price. The use of aluminum as part of the Miix 2 8’s slim design is great to see, and its overall size feels quite comfortable on the hand. Unfortunately the Miix 2 8 is also quite frustrating to use due to a touch-screen responsiveness flaw that Lenovo will hopefully fix in a future update.

Diamond DS3900 Ultra Dock Review
     Fri, Mar 14 2014 | 3:14P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Are you tired of continuously reconnecting cables to your laptop, but don’t want to buy the specific docking station for your laptop? Or, perhaps you have multiple systems that you use daily. Personally, I run multiple systems from home and constantly switch between systems that require more than a remote desktop connection. Diamond Media has a solution for these scenarios. Introducing the DS3900 Docking station! Cconnected via a USB, the DS3900 allows you to keep your primary peripherals connected to the dock and switch over with a single cable swap.”

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook Review: A Philosophical Shift
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 4:04P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The next big topic of controversy is sure to be the headfirst jump into low-voltage parts, flanked with a mere single SODIMM slot for RAM (8 GB total system memory supported) and an extremely conservative firmware which limits the systems performance (via throttling) in the presence of even moderate GPU activity. This trio of developments might not bother most users, but for those who appreciated the dual-mode versatility of the previous X230 and X220 (highly portable, adequate battery life, and still full-voltage, unhindered performance when called for), this plunge into portability-first mentality will certainly give them pause. For examples of how it has affected the GPU and CPU performance of the machine in context with the X230, see our related benchmarks."

Cooler Master ROC Tablet & Notebook Stand Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 9:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rocks. Chances are everyone has thrown a rock at least once. When I think of a rock, the adjectives, strong, stable, and heavy, come to mind. Cooler Masters ROC is no different, and it is highly likely that the name ROC is inspired by real rocks. While ROC is strong, stable and heavy, it is not something you throw. ROC is a stand for Apples highly stylized MacBook Pro and iPad devices."

Dell Latitude E7440 Touch Business Ultrabook Review
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Latitude E7440 is not quite as sexy as some of the sleek ultrabooks out there, but it's also not as square as most business notebooks we've been subjected to over the years. The Dell Latitude E7440 thus continues a trend we've been noticing lately of companies gussying up their business-class laptops, while maintaining a professional look so as not to distract in the conference room. It's tough trying to straddle two worlds with a product line, offering a business notebook with consumer features to entice end users, but Dell has been doing as good a job of it as any company. Primarily, that's because it's been rolling out a ton ultrabooks, and the slim and light machines just tend to be attractive. The Latitude E7440 is indeed thin at just 21mm, and with a 3-cell battery it weighs in at just 3.6lbs...

TabZoo Tiger Universal Tablet Sleeve Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 4:20P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most tablet cases out there are rather plain and just perform one function to protect your tablet and that`s fine, but sometimes you want something with a bit more style. Today for review I have the TabZoo Tiger Universal Tablet Sleeve which is something that`s marketed to children. It`s a fun and unique tablet case that looks like a tiger obviously. What makes this sleeve special is that it`s also a stand for your tablet, but it`s a special and fun stand as when you open the sleeve you`ll find teeth. It`s hard to describe, you have to see it to understand it, so read on to learn about a tablet sleeve that kids will just love.. "

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.
