MSI GT73VR Titan GTX 1070 SLI Gaming Laptop Review
     Tue, Apr 25 2017 | 5:26P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Getting massive amounts of performance from a desktop system is easy, you just buy the big graphics cards, the big power supply, big coolers, and plug it all in. Trying to get massive amounts of power in a laptop form factor, however, is not so easy. The latest system from MSI is designed for those who need something that’s just as powerful as an enthusiast grade desktop system but has just enough portability to be mobile. While at its heart this is setup in a way to be a powerful gaming system, it’s configuration means it’ll power through workstation tasks, rendering, even scientific applications if you really need to. Of course, all this performance doesn’t come cheap, and you won’t be getting much change from £3000, but do you get good value for money? Let’s take a look!

HP Spectre x360 15 Review: A Versatile Thing
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HP is not one to let the weeds grow under its feet, at least not when it comes to its Spectre x360 line. The company it has no problem changing things up in an effort to keep its premium ultraportable hip and trendy. Having already gone through a few mild wardrobe changes over the past few years, the newest iteration of the Spectre x360 brings another slightly different look than last year's model -- one that is perhaps more refined and mature. It retains the gold accents introduced by its predecessor, but does not flaunt them quite as loudly. Other upgrades are not as subtle. HP continues to offer the Spectre x360 in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch form factors, the latter of which we're reviewing here...

Dell XPS 15 (9560) Review: More Performance
     Sat, Apr 15 2017 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lately, Dell has been able to deliver notebooks that bring a smile to our faces, especially when a new XPS laptop slides across our desk. It hasn't always been that way, but since revamping the XPS line, starting with the XPS 13 back in 2015, Dell’s premium laptops have been leaders in the ultrabook market, especially in the 15 and 13-inch formats. The XPS 13 and its new 2-in-1 variant make great and highly portable workstations to tote around, but their smaller frames and relative horsepower may not be for everybody. That’s where the crossover to a 15-inch machine might make for a worthy trade-off...

Lenovo Yoga
     Mon, Apr 10 2017 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you look at the current 2-in-1 notebook market, it is clear that the single greatest influence is the Lenovo Yoga. Despite initial efforts to differentiate convertible Notebook-tablet designs, newly released machines such as the HP Spectre x360 series and the Dell XPS 13" 2-in-1 make it clear that the 360-degree "Yoga-style" hinge is the preferred method. Today, we are looking at a unique application on the 360-degree hinge, the Lenovo Yoga Book. Will this new take on the 2-in-1 concept be so influential?

Corsair Lapdog Game Control Center Review
     Thu, Mar 16 2017 | 5:43P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Real gamers – and you are a real gamer, right? – know that consoles cannot provide the performance and graphics quality of a good PC-based gaming rig. But giant 4K televisions provide an excellent canvas for immersive game play. You can set up a PC connected to your TV, but those console controllers just don’t cut it if you’re using to a good gaming keyboard and mouse. Too bad there’s no way to really use a keyboard and mouse on your lap. Or… is there?

ROCCAT Sova Lapboard
     Sun, Mar 12 2017 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted our review of the ROCCAT Sova Lapboard. This is a rather large keyboard/mousepad combo that is geared for your living room. You can plug in your favorite mouse and an extra USB peripheral and have it all on your lap. While this is not a new idea, ROCCAT really pushes things and refines it for 2017 and beyond. If you want to game from the comfort of your couch, check out this review!

Acer Predator Z1 Z301CT 30in Curved Gaming Monitor
     Tue, Mar 07 2017 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The super-wide 21:9 aspect isn’t that common in PC monitors, and even less so for gaming. But it’s potentially a very immersive form factor. The Acer Predator Z1 Z301CT presents this aspect with a 30in diagonal, a curved surface, and good helping of features for the serious gamer.

ASUS ZenBook 3 (UX390UA) Ultrabook Review
     Tue, Mar 07 2017 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of our Dell XPS 13 review, today we are looking at the brand-new ASUS ZenBook 3. What has really caught my eye about the ZenBook 3 is its physical dimensions – it measures just 11.9mm thick, while it weighs a mere 910g. With Kaby Lake hardware inside, as well as the promise of a crisp 1080p display and Harman Kardon speakers, could this be our new ultrabook of choice?

Asus ROG G701VI Laptop Review
     Mon, Mar 06 2017 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Asus sent us the specification of the new ROG G701VI laptop we had a couple of thoughts. The first was a point of trivia as the model code suffix looks like VI or Roman 6 i.e. Skylake but in fact it is Vee Eye. The second, much bigger, point is that the specification looks amazing. Asus promises ‘Desktop Performance In A Slim Package’ and they make a good point. This large 17.3-inch chassis is relatively slender and measures 32.5mm at the thinnest point and 35mm at the thicker parts, weighing in at 3.8kg. For comparison the Asus G752VT is 43mm thick and weighs 4.4kg so the Asus ROG G701VI is not significantly smaller or lighter but it looks thinner and has a svelte appearance.

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.
