iRULU Walknbook 3 Hybrid Tablet PC
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we are looking at the newest version of the iRULU WalknBook 3 W1005 and just from my initial research into this product it definitely has been growing better and better with age. Yes, we reviewers read other reviews during our research to ensure we are giving the consumer the best information we possibly can. It is essential, just so we don’t miss anything that others might catch on the good side and the bad. I would categorize this tablet with the build quality of a Samsung Tablet with the power of full Windows 10 Home experience. The heavy-duty construction is heavy and the solid button feel is tight. Actually, in my opinion, the way this iRULU WalknBook 3 feels in the hand and in the user experience like a high-quality hybrid tablet/Notebook computer. It’s fully functional 10.1 inch IPS display is bright and true and the computer shares the same Bay Trail Z3735F ATOM Quad-Core / 7th generation Intel processor that some of its competition use. The unit is quick and responsive in many usual applications that don’t require the need for super number crunching skills."

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:12P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga... Today's ThinkPad X1 Yoga evolution promises to extend the ultra-functional 2-in-1 form factor to a roomier 14 inch size while maintaining the X1 Carbon's thin profile and, of course, carbon-fiber construction. The ThinkPad's design takes shape more targeted to the work at hand, rather than eye candy. If the X1 Yoga here is going to carry that torch it needs to let you work efficiently and comfortably.

Lenovo Yoga 700: A Flexible 14-Inch Ultraportable Convertible
     Sun, Apr 17 2016 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft effectively encouraged its hardware partners to think beyond the confines of traditional PC design, giving them the nudge they needed to introduce bold new products. Lenovo embraced the challenge, and in 2012 it brought its first Yoga system to market, a multi-mode laptop that could fold back onto itself like a carnival contortionist. The design proved popular, so over the past few years Lenovo has added new laptops to its Yoga line. One of the newest is the Yoga 700, a 14-inch convertible that takes advantage of the latest technologies, pairing Intel's Skylake architecture with Microsoft's Windows 10 platform. It's a marriage of hardware and software made flexible through the Yoga's familiar ability to assume different modes...

Razer Blade Stealth Review: A high caliber ultrabook
     Wed, Apr 06 2016 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diverging from its usual modus operandi, Razer introduced its first ultrabook earlier this year, the Razer Blade Stealth. This is not a gaming machine out of the box. Rather, Razer has unapologetically prioritized mobility over gaming, and its specs are in line with a number of other premium non-gaming ultrabook offerings. But does the Blade Stealth have what it takes to stand apart?

Gigabyte P35W v5 Gaming Laptop Review
     Mon, Apr 04 2016 | 1:58P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Consumers typically purchase gaming laptops over their desktop counterparts due to portability and requiring hefty processing power on the move. Saying that, it’s exceedingly difficult to offer adequate thermal dissipation in a slim form factor which limits the convenience factor of many flagship gaming laptops. These tend to be rather bulky and difficult to carry around on public transportation where space is quite restricted. Thankfully, efficiency improvements on mobile graphics chipsets and CPUs have enabled manufacturers to create a better balance between performance and size. Granted, the top-tier options with dual GPUs still feel heavy but less extreme alternatives can be surprising portable. For example, the Gigabyte P34W v3 provides a superb gaming experience and weighs a mere 1.81Kg. Back when I reviewed this, the performance to size ratio astounded me. Although, the system’s load temperatures were higher than I hoped and felt like a concession too far.

     Fri, Apr 01 2016 | 5:15P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Mythlogic Deimos 1615S Gaming Laptop Review
     Wed, Mar 16 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While discussions about the best desktop gaming PCs tend to be divided between do-it-yourselfers and fans of pre-built PCs, gaming laptops spark a different debate, typically between large system builders versus, smaller boutique system integrators. Many of the industry behemoths kick-started or bolstered their gaming system lines by acquiring boutique SIs (think of Voodoo, which was swallowed by HP, and Alienware, which is now a part of Dell), but some niche builders are still going solo, including well-known players like Falcon Northwest and Maingear. Mythlogic is another custom builder providing an alternative to mainstream brands, and we're going to show you one of their machines here -- the powerful Deimos 1615S...

Dell XPS 12 (2016) Review: Core m-Powered 2-in-1 Laptop
     Mon, Mar 14 2016 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 2-in-1 and convertible PC space has changed significantly over the past couple of years. What was once a cluttered mess of kludges is now a well-defined market segment packed with refinement, power, and plenty of options. You could partially credit Microsoft's Surface line for making 2-in-1s an object of desire, but it's also products like the Dell XPS 12 that make today's line-up of convertible devices so much more interesting. Dell's XPS 12, which was first announced last fall, is just as capable as a laptop as it is a tablet. That's no small feat...

MSI GS40 Phantom 6QE Gaming Laptop Review
     Sat, Mar 12 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GS40 Phantom is loaded up with a 14.0-inch 1080p display, an Intel ‘Skylake’ Core i7-6700HQ CPU, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M discrete graphics card, 16 GB of RAM, and a combination of a 128 GB SSD with a 1 TB hard drive. It also packs the latest connectivity, including a USB Type-C port sporting Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 gen 2. When it comes to looks the GS40 Phantom's design is both understated and nice enough to stand out from the pack.

Lenovo Y700 Touch 15-inch Gaming Laptop
     Fri, Mar 11 2016 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When you hear someone say “Gaming Laptop” does Lenovo come to mind? Likely not, but I think after this review it just might. Today we are taking a look at Lenovo’s latest gaming laptop which is the Y700. It follows in the footsteps of the Y50 and comes in a few different flavors. The version that we are taking a look at is the Y700 Touch, which is the 15.6-inch version that has a 10-point touch display. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M dedicated graphics, 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 128GB solid state drive as well as a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive for your games. The Y700 also has cool features like a nice red backlit keyboard, powerful JBL speakers, and a very slick aluminum lid. Lenovo also has unleashed their own gaming accessories which they sent us their gaming headset, mouse, and backpack. Read on and we see what the Y700 is all about and how these gaming accessories compliment it."
