ASUS Taichi 31 review: two sides of the story
     Thu, Jul 04 2013 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Taichi 31 is a unique product, and a successful one at that. It has two screens, one of which is a touchscreen, and the performance of this tablet/laptop is good. For most people the tablet screen will likely be nothing more than a cool gimmick, but for giving presentations on the road it can be a pretty useful feature. And it's nice that you always have a keyboard and touchpad handy.

Samsung 5-Series NP540U3C-A01 13.3-inch Ultrabook Notebook Review
     Wed, Jul 03 2013 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Samsung's 5-Series NP540U3C-A01 Ultrabook is the first laptop to cross PCSTATS test bench with Windows 8 installed and a touch screen. Our first impressions of the new interface are positive - poking at the screen with ones fingers easily compliments the keyboard and touchpad to really bring out the best in Microsoft Windows 8 and crack open a whole new world of applications. The touch screen interface is intuitive to learn, landing Samsung's NP540U3C-A01 ultrabook functionally somewhere between a sup'ed-up tablet and laptop."

Gigabyte U2442F 14-inch Ultrabook Review
     Wed, Jul 03 2013 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was 2011 and Intel saw a surging trend in mobile computing, admittedly inspired by Apple's Macbook Air. Notebooks were to become thinner, batteries had to last more, optical drives were going away, and performance, performance didn't have to suffer too much. Moreover, manufacturers didn't seem to be doing a whole lot to get on this trend, so Intel pushed forward by investing $300 million of its own money to make it happen. There are currently more than two dozen 'Chief River' ultrabooks available from manufacturers such as Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, Sony and Gigabyte. Today we are checking out the latest model from Gigabyte. The U2442F is one of many U2442 variations, though as the flagship model it’s the most expensive and powerful. Without question the Gigabyte U2442F is cutting edge stuff when it comes to ultrabook performance. Armed with a 3rd-Gen Core i7 processor, plenty of memory, and a quality SSD, the U2442F is as capable as a high-end desktop.

Samsung ATIV Book 7 series review
     Tue, Jul 02 2013 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung is attempting to position its laptop products a bit higher, for example with the new ATIV series for all of its Windows products. These include tablets, laptops and smartphones. The first two ATIV Books we're testing are two models from the 7 series, previously known as Chronos.

     Sat, Jun 29 2013 | 9:25A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire R7-571-6858 has an innovative hinge mechanism, but the overall design is dragged down by the decision to swap the touchpad and keyboard, resulting in a design that is awkward at best."

ASUS FonePad review: smartphone and/or tablet
     Sat, Jun 29 2013 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the FonePad, ASUS has a product in the relatively new segment of very large smartphones. We tested the FonePad to find out exactly what it has to offer. Is it really a 7-inch smartphone, or is it more akin to a tablet that you can also use to call people with?

Gigabyte U2442F Ultrabook Review - XSReviews
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 3:56A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte is best known for their production of PC components like motherboards and graphics cards, but the company also has a line of laptops. Today we`re going to be looking at one such laptop, which is something of an oddity in the Windows 8 world: it does not employ a touch screen, but it does include a Nvidia 650M discrete graphics card. This should make it a stronger gaming laptop than the Windows 8 notebooks we`ve looked at in the past, which all relied on integrated Intel HD 4000 solutions. Combined with an i7 processor, 128 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM, we`re looking at a very powerful machine indeed. Let`s take a closer look. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Running Ubuntu Linux Is Messy On The 2013 MacBook Air
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 11:13P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month, shortly after Intel announced their latest-generation Haswell processors, Apple rolled out their new 2013 MacBook Air laptops. From a hardware perspective, the new MacBook Airs are incredible. The 13-inch MacBook Air can get a 12-hour battery life with Intel Haswell CPU. The 11-inch model continues being an ultra portable computer and has excellent performance with its Core i5 Haswell processor and HD Graphics 5000. As soon as the Haswell MacBook Airs went on sale, I bought an 11-inch model for Linux testing. Ubuntu can be installed and run on the new Apple MacBook Air, but the experience is less than desirable."

Dell Inspiron 15z (I15z-4801SLV) Review @ TechReviewSource.com

Tipping the scales at the thick and heavy end of the ultrabook specifications, the Dell Inspiron 15z gives you extra features to justify its bulk. It`s a good pick for the traditional laptop user who wants a new, fast laptop."

Dell XPS 18 Portable All-In-One Desktop Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has chosen to combine two trending computing design styles into a single system and call it the XPS 18 Portable All-In-One Desktop. It has all the power of a an entry level desktop and some of the portability of a tablet, though let's be clear that Dell isn't pitching you'll want to tote this across town on a train or in other ways that you might use an iPad or Nexus 7. It's portable in the sense that you can snatch up the 18.4-inch Full HD display and lug it from your home office to the living room, plop it on the table, and switch gears from Google Docs to gaming with the kids. Or take it bed for some late night surfing before drifting off to sleep. You can dock the display on your desk with the included stand or carry it around. At around 5 pounds, it's heavier than a traditional tablet, though it's also much bigger and obviously more powerful. Mixing these two form factors is an interesting concept, but does it work in a design this large? Let's have a look.

Google Chromebook Pixel Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, Google did something almost ground-breaking when it introduced the Chromebook Pixel. Sure, the Chromebook line as a whole has existed for a few years, but the entire premise of such a range of notebooks revolved around only a couple of design goals. One of those was accessibility, and almost by default, the other was affordability. The original Chromebooks were priced at $500 or less -- in some cases, far less. The reason seemed obvious: Chrome OS was a great operating system for those who did little more than browse the Web and connect to cloud-based services such as Evernote, but it served less of a purpose in the productivity-minded "real world." The Chromebook Pixel on the other hand, is perhaps the most curious gadget launch of the year. It's an extreme combination of premium parts and design coupled with a fledgling operating system. It's an odd melding of premium and basic features rolled into a single device. And this time around, Google priced out an expensive offering to be sure. Much like other Chromebooks, it's also difficult to categorize versus other products in the market...

Apple MacBook Air 13-inch (Mid-2013) Review @ TechReviewSource.com

Sony VAIO T Series 15 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Jun 19 2013 | 8:21A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The all-new Sony VAIO T Series 15 has an attractive design, a beautiful 1080p HD touch display, long battery life and very good performance. It does lack a Blu-ray drive, which would have put it over the top, and the touch pad wasn`t the best."
