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...

News: Nvidia Shield Tablet is packed with ports possibilities
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 6:07A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just under a year since the release of the Shield Portable, Nvidia has announced a second member of the Shield family. As expected, it`s the Shield Tablet, an Android slate with an emphasis on gaming. Like the Shield Portable before it, the Shield Tablet will sell direct from Nvidia, not from a partner company. The Shield Tablet extends Nvidia`s Android gaming focus to a new form factor, making it one of the first tablets anywhere with a fairly pure gaming mission."

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of Samsung's goals with its latest Galaxy Tab 4 tablets was to create a family of products that offered good value and versatility to a wide range of potential consumers. The new Galaxy Tab 4 family is available in three sizes: 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inches and the tablets feature lightweight materials, thin bezels, and HD displays. In March, we took a look at Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. If the flagship Pro series is too much for you in terms of features or price, the Galaxy Tab 4 series may be a better option. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 which is available in black or white with an MSRP of $269.99. LTE versions of the Galaxy Tab 4 are also available through wireless carriers in the US...

ASUS MeMO Pad 7 Tablet Review - ME176C
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Budget friendly Android tablets are a dime a dozen these days, but they all aren’t created equally and there are some very bad tablets out there. When you get into the sub $150 tablet market you need to be very careful with what tablet you go with as companies start cutting costs by reducing the hardware specifications and that can lead to subpar performance and an overall bad user experience. If you’ve ever purchased an inexpensive tablet thinking that they were all the same, you usually find out in under three minutes that you screwed up and will be running to return it. ASUS, the company behind the hardware of the Google Nexus 7, is still charging ahead in the tablet market and recently released the Memo Pad 7 for $149 (around £129 or AU$170). The ASUS Memo Pad 7 ME176C is similar to the original Nexus 7, but the housing is a tad bit larger and the hardware inside is very different. The ASUS Memo Pad 7 is powered by an Intel Bay Trail Atom processor...

Solar power is everywhere around us, its the sun after all, and last I checked theres few trillion or so years left of life in it so I figure why not take advantage of it? Today for review Ive got the Apollo Solar USB Charger from Poweradd and its basically a large solar panel with a USB port on it to charge your devices while on the go, wherever you go. The Apollo can be charged by the sun obviously, but it can be also charged over a standard USB port if need be. So read on to learn more"

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Review
     Sat, Jun 21 2014 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Xperia Z2 Tablet is a successor to last year’s Xperia Tablet Z, and like what we’re seeing in Sony’s smartphone range, the device is an incremental update to what came before. Like the Tablet Z, the Z2 Tablet is fully water resistant, packs a 10.1-inch WUXGA display, and is under 7mm thick. The most significant update is the specification bump to Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 801 SoC, plus there’s an improved camera and a sizable weight reduction.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
