Google Nexus 10 Android Tablet Review
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the Nexus 7 not only did Google show that Android can be competitive on a small tablet, but they also beat the iPad mini to sale by several months, giving time for the Nexus 7 to gain a foothold in the market. Fast forward to today and Google's set their sights even higher: right into the 10" tablet fray where the iPad dominates. On paper the Nexus 10 is impressive with a Retina Display beating 10" 2560x1600 display, a brand new Exynos 5 dual core processor, Android 4.2 Jellybean and a very competitive price of only $400. Taken as a whole with the Nexus branding which practically guarantees future updates, the Samsung built and Google branded Nexus 10 checks a lot of the right boxes...

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook Review
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 6:22P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 13 ultrabook is designed to give users flexibility in a way other ultrabooks don't: This ultrabook features a unique, dual-articulating hinge that lets the Yoga 13's touchscreen fold 360 degrees, converting the machine from notebook mode to tablet mode. Thanks to its special hinge design, the Yoga 13 can also be used in "stand" or "tent" modes as well. The IdeaPad Yoga 13 runs Windows 8. And when used in notebook mode, the Yoga 13 gives you the full desktop experience of Windows 8 with the added benefit of a touchscreen. In tablet, tent, or stand modes though, you'll appreciate all of the touch-friendly controls and features found within Windows 8...

Is There a Touchable Windows 8 Laptop For You?
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you’ve played around a bit with Windows 8, you know it’s just one of those things that needs to be touched. A mouse is okay, a trackpad gets by, but don’t-call-it-Metro begs to be touched. The live tiles and lengthy Start screen are designed for just that, and nothing else truly satisfies. While manufacturers haven’t exactly flooded the market with touch-enabled laptops, there are some good options out there already. Expect a crush of touchable Windows 8 machines at CES early next year, but for those shopping this holiday, we have cherry picked the best touch-enabled, Windows 8 laptops.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 is almost everything we want in a hybrid ultrabook. As an ultrabook, the Yoga 13 offers an uncompromised computing experience, while wedding Windows 8 with the touch screen it deserves, and delivering performance that will keep you satisfied at work and play. But as a tablet, it falters."

Posted by: STAFF
The new Apple Mac mini may look the sameit is, after all identical to the Mac mini (Thunderbolt)but it has been updated with Intel`s latest Ivy Bridge processor, faster USB 3.0 ports, and given a performance boost with Apple`s new Fusion drive. It`s everything we loved about the Apple Mac mini (Thunderbolt), just faster."

Tech News: ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T 32GB Tablet Review
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 7:41A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS is widely known for producing computer parts and peripherals, but rarely do they indulge in anything pre-made. Introduce the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T, and now we have seemingly one of the first ASUS products in the mobile market. Frankly speaking, it makes sense for ASUS to dive into tablets. They already produce premium lines of business and gaming laptops, so tablets are the next logical direction. It certainly doesn`t become a question as to whether ASUS can make their name in the market, but rather how well. Tablets aren`t perfect devices by any means, but some are better than others. The little things matter at the end as they define which tablet is the perfect buy. ASUS is regarded as a highly reputable company, but that alone cannot carry them from consumer scrutiny."

The Acer Aspire V5-571P is another new Windows 8-equipped 15-inch touch screen laptop computer that features a sleek design, a decent configuration and an affordable price. It does offer solid performance that can keep up with other similar, new laptops but it does lack in battery life."

Microsoft Surface with Windows RT Review
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
They say hindsight is 20/20. Looking back, it’s now obvious that Microsoft had dropped a number of hints that the company would eventually offer its own tablet, which should have made their Surface announcement last summer much less of a surprise. It was way back in 2008 that Microsoft began showing off its similarly named Surface tabletop, hinting at the immense resources Microsoft was pouring into touch interfaces. And it was at CES 2011 that Microsoft announced that Windows 8 would support system on a chip (SoC) architectures from ARM. Then NVIDIA announced that Microsoft’s demo at CES, which showed Excel and IE10 running on an ARM-based chip, was performed using a Tegra SoC. All of that foundation culminated in the release of the product we’ll be showing you here, Microsoft’s Surface Tablet with Windows RT...

Samsungs A15 Chromebook Loaded With Ubuntu Is Crazy Fast
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 11:05A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google recently launched the Samsung Chromebook that for $249 USD features an 11-inch display, a 16GB SSD, a promise of 6.5-hour battery life, and is backed by a Samsung Exynos 5 SoC. The Samsung Exynos 5 packs a 1.7GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor with ARM Mali-T604 graphics. With using this new ARM Cortex-A15 chip plus the Samsung Chromebook not being locked down so it can be loaded up with a Linux distribution like Ubuntu or openSUSE, it was a must-buy for carrying out some interesting Cortex-A15 Linux benchmarks. The Exynos 5 Dual in this affordable laptop packs an impressive performance punch."

The Lenovo Carbon X1 is an outstanding portable workplace. It has a display with great resolution, offers impressive performance and again features a high-quality Lenovo keyboard.

Checking out the latest Intel-powered Ultrabooks and Tablets @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 8:29A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to choosing a device these days things are much different than they were just a few years ago. Now there are so many devices that allow us to complete our daily tasks that it is hard and even sometimes confusing to choose a device when it is time for an upgrade or a new purchase. Intel knows this and we sat down with them to discuss some of the latest Intel-powered Ultrabooks and tablets. They not only let us get our hands on these devices but explained many of the features that are built-in on a hardware level that you will not find with a non-Intel system. Read on as we show you some of these new devices and give you an idea of what to expect to see from Intel-powered devices in the future."

TRENDnet TPL-406E 500Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter Review
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 1:51P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many people seem to have a hard time leaving the convenience of their local Wi-Fi network although they all know that it can`t actually reach the throughput data transfer speed of a wired connection. Wiring a brand new house with Ethernet (CAT5/6) cables may not be quite easy but it`s also the most ideal solution if you want the best possible performance for your local network (although it can get somewhat expensive). However for old houses/structures that is not really possible (unless you don`t care having them around) and so in such cases you can either rely on a Wi-Fi connection or on Powerline adapters. Of course since Powerline adapters practically use the electrical wirings of the structure their performance is directly affected by their quality/age. Still even so Powerline adapters are quite faster than most Wi-Fi connections (especially when the modem/router is not near) something which we`ve proven time and again through our reviews. This time however in our lab we have the smallest Powerline adapter in the market to date, the TPL-406E 500Mbps compact powerline AV adapter by TRENDnet."

Dell Inspiron 14z: Ultrabook with DVD and SSD

If you're looking for a laptop that has all the connectors and a DVD burner, you don't have that many options these days. Many Ultrabooks don't have a DVD burner, but that's not the case with the Dell Inspirion 14z.

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.
