ASUS VivoBook S500C Touchscreen Ultrabook Laptop Review
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 12:34P | Notebooks | PermaLink

Sony VAIO T14 Ultrabook Review - Out With Express Cache In With DataPlex For SandForce Driven Speed
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 10:07P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony`s new VIAO touchscreen T14 arrived last week, complete with hybrid hard drive and Windows 8. Frequent readers of TSSDR understand my opinion of both, an opinion that was initially hard to contain with their teaming up in what appears to be an attractive ultra design. Swapping out the hard drive for an SSD was a given. Stepping outside the box, we believed the analysis and replacement of ExpressCache with NVELO Dataplex might be worth the effort and worthy of report. Could it be done? To date, we haven`t seen Samsung`s NVELO Dataplex in any ultra book or laptop design, yet it is unquestionably the highest performing caching software that we know of. Is there another that could actually see a hybrid ultra book design reach exceed data speeds above 500MB/s by twinning the performance of a caching SSD onto that of a hard drive?"

Samsung XE500T1C Tablet @ DreamWare Computers
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 4:20P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the XE500T1C you don?t need to have a laptop for your desk and a tablet for on the go. The XE500T1C is a tablet with a nice big 11.6? HD LED display for on the go, and when you need to get some serious work done at the comfort of a desk then you can dock it into a comfortable (and locking) keyboard and trackpad dock. Ready to travel? The dock locks safely onto the tablet and can be collapsed just like a laptop!"

HP Envy X2 11-G010NR Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 4:06P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Envy x2 has a beautiful thin, brushed-silver design that really makes it stand-out from the crowd. But in terms of performance, it could be better as the Intel Atom Z2760 and 2GB of RAM only provide adequate power."

Cyberpower Fangbook X7-200 Gaming Notebook Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 8:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The fine folks at Cyberpower PC have sent us over one of their latest creations, and truth be told, I`m looking forward to this one! What we have today is the Cyberpower Fangbook X7-200 gaming notebook. The entire Fangbook series features a massive 17.3 screen (1920x1080 HD LED-Backlit), Intel Core i7-3630QM quad-core processors (to start), and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675MX and GTX 680M graphics. To say that these things are beasts doesn`t do them justice. The Fangbook has the different versions to it, each with slightly different specifications and price points. The Fangbook X7-200 that we have in our hands today starts out at $1549..."

How Tablet PCs Could Save Civilization @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Apr 06 2013 | 4:16P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve read many articles published by various editors on the death of the Desktop PC at the hand of Tablets, and I don`t put much stock in them. I, personally, will never give up having a Desktop. The raw power capabilities needed for ripping, converting, editing, compiling, and securing various data will always ensure it a place in my home, until the Desktop becomes a Wrist Computer with a direct neural interface. Or, at least, that`s my hope of what it will become. However, there is a potential death for the Desktop PC in the future, and it`s has nothing to do with advancing technologies..."

ASUS VivoBook S500CA Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Apr 01 2013 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS VivoBook S500CA is a Windows 8 touch screen laptop that offers a stylish, portable design, a great-looking display and solid overall performance. It does suffer from below average battery life and an overly sensitive touch pad."

Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Apr 01 2013 | 9:57A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 is a slim and portable 15-inch laptop that has a DVD drive, strong graphics performance and a comfortable, backlit keyboard. It could have better battery life and the display`s screen resolution could use an increase, but overall it`s a good laptop for the money, especially if you want to play 3D games on-the-go."

Dell Inspiron 17-3721 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Mar 29 2013 | 4:04P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Inspiron 17-3721 is a budget-priced Windows 8 laptop that offers an attractive 17-inch display, good performance and a comfortable keyboard. It does have below average graphics performance, but this isn`t really meant to be a gaming notebook."

Toshiba Satellite U845T-S4165 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Mar 27 2013 | 12:09P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Satellite U845T-S4165 offers a lightweight design, extra long battery life and a high-quality touch screen display. We were really pleased with performance thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and 128GB SSD hard drive."

     Wed, Mar 27 2013 | 10:20A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Satellite C875-S7340 is a solid entry-level Windows 8-equipped laptop that belongs to Toshiba`s value-oriented Satellite C series. It is capable of delivering decent performance for daily tasks and even packs a few niceties, including a large display, full-size keyboard and 6GB of RAM. For users on a budget, it`s worth checking out."

Samsung Series 5 13.3 Ultrabook (NP540U3C-A01CA) - BCCHardware
     Tue, Mar 26 2013 | 10:19A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as serviceability goes, the Samsung Series 5 is one of the easier notebooks or Ultrabooks I`ve ever taken apart. Most companies go out of their way to make servicing Ultrabooks tough so that when then break (hopefully many years down the road), you have to take them back to the manufacturer for service. This is not the case for Samsung with this model, chances are good if your local repair shop can get the part, they can easily repair this unit for you. . ."

Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Mar 24 2013 | 9:05A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo IdeaPad Y500 is a powerhouse 15-inch laptop with a 1080p display, a comfortable backlit keyboard and an affordable price. It does suffer from below average-battery life and it does get quite hot, but overall it`s a fantastic laptop for the money."

MSI GX60 1AC-021US Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Mar 22 2013 | 9:53A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GX60 1AC is a mid-sized, affordable gaming laptop that has a 1080p display, a Blu-ray optical drive, above average battery life and solid performance. It does lack a backlit keyboard and the touch pad is rather small for our liking."

Logitech T651 Rechargeable Trackpad for Mac Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Mar 20 2013 | 9:37A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using the Logitech T651 Rechargeable Trackpad is not unlike that of the Apple Magic Trackpad or any trackpad on an Apple laptop. It supports gestures, taps, and clicks. Unlike Apple`s trackpad which uses batteries, the T651 is rechargeable, so giving it a full charge is the first step upon opening and it takes two to three hours to get a full charge. The glass surface is slick yet tactile and feels very much like the Magic Trackpad and trackpads found on the varying MacBooks. So, those that are used to using them shouldn`t really feel a difference..."
