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
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
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.

Magnetyze Apple iPhone 4 / 4S Charger Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 11:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well known inductive charger brands include PowerMat and Energerizer Qi. These systems involve using bulky case on the iPhone and a flat inductive mat. Conductive chargers are less known but BuQuTech plans to change that with their Magnetyze iPhone 4/4S charging system which features a low profile case and a magnetic stand. "

Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina review
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Speculation about upcoming Apple products seems to have become a hobby for many. The iPad Mini certainly was not a surprise anymore when it was officially launched, so the other news Apple released that day was much more exciting. The iPad 4 was announced, more information came out about the new Mac Mini, and the sleek new Apple iMac was presented. The 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina also received some attention, and Hardware.Info has now tested it to find out what it has to offer.

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Ultrabook Windows 7 and 8 Testing Review @ TechwareLabs
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 12:09P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabook is a label that can mean just about anything. Asus, however, seems to be cleaving close to Intel`s original intent; the Zenbook Prime UX31A looks at first glance to be a slick competitor to Apple`s featherweight offering. First impressions can be deceiving, though, so we`re taking a closer look to see if this little slice of Zen lives up to its promise."

Acer Iconia W700 Windows 8 Tablet Review
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Acer Iconia W700 is a powerful tablet running Windows 8 Pro. Unlike the Microsoft Surface for Windows RT, the W700 includes a laptop-grade Core i5 processor and therefore runs the full desktop version of Windows, allowing compatibility with both legacy Windows x32 and x64 programs and new Modern UI style apps available in the Microsoft app store. The W700 provided for this review is an engineering sample, so its configuration differs slightly from what will be available at retail and it is running a test version of Windows 8. For this reason, we won’t be examining hardware performance in any great depth. However, we will take a look at the W700 and test how well it uses the touch focus of Windows 8 to deliver a compelling experience. Let’s get started."

The Asus S56CA-DH51 is another new 15-inch Windows 8 Ultrabook that has an attractive aluminum design and a speedy Intel Core i5 CPU to back up its looks. Thanks to a 24GB SSD HD, it boots up quickly but the keyboard and battery life need some work."

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 8:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using a touchscreen is something we are used to with our mobile phones and tablets but it really has not translated to the desktop all that well. Yes there have been all-in-one touchscreen systems, but for the most part they have been clunky and Windows 7 really is not made for a touchscreen. This all changes with Windows 8. The Metro interface in Windows 8 is more or less designed to be used with a touchscreen device. Today we are checking out Lenovos flagship all-in-one and their largest as well with a 27-inch touchscreen display. The IdeaCentre A720 features a very sleek and thin design, NVIDIA GeForce Graphics, a TV tuner, HDMI in and out, WiFi, Bluetooth and much more. Read on as we have some fun and check out this system."

Lenovo Y580 15.6-inch Laptop Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Nov 07 2012 | 11:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just about a year ago we took a look at Lenovos Y570 15.6-inch laptop and today we have its successor the Y580. Designed to be an all-around system or even a desktop replacement that can handle HD video, gaming, and other intensive tasks the Y580 features NVIDIA GTX660M graphics, an mSATA solid state drive for fast boot times and application load times, a very fast Intel Core i7-3610QM processor, 8GB of DDR3 and USB 3.0 support. For those who hate the typical dull speakers on laptops Lenovo has outfitted the Y580 with premium JBL speakers with support for Dolby Home Theater v4. Finally just for looks Lenovo has added a backlit keyboard that not only looks cool, but allows you to work at night with ease. Starting at just $849 the Y580 is still very affordable. Is this the laptop for you? Read on as we put it to the test!"

Do you deserve your touch?

The budget tablet segment keeps growing, and generally they are also improving in quality. In the beginning these products had pretty terrible displays, but nowadays you can find decent screens on these affordable tablets. A fairly recent addition to the entry-level segment is the brand dServe, that is using three new tablets to enter the budget tablet market.

Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 Tablet Review
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Nvidia's Tegra 3 has been taking tablets and smartphones by storm, there are other noteworthy mobile processors out there, including Qualcomm's dual-core, 1.5GHz 8060A. The Snapdragon S4 SoC appears in the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110, which is a 10.1-inch tablet that runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. That's not a bad setup for a tablet, particularly if you're shopping on a tighter budget. Lenovo took a different approach with the IdeaTab S2110’s display than we usually see. Whereas other tablet makers are gunning for the highest resolution displays, Lenovo opted for a 10.1-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and a 16:10 ratio. That means 1080p is out of the question, but the screen has upsides to consider, including 420-nit brightness built in IPS technology with 178-degree viewing angles...

Which Windows 8 tablet? (or Apple)
     Mon, Nov 05 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week Windows 8 was released, and in no-time dozens of hip new Windows 8 devices with touchscreens will hit the market. Tablets, laptops, so-called convertibles and all-in-one PCs with touchscreen have been announced by various manufacturers. There is a good chance the boring uniformity of the PC and tablet market is coming to an end, as different brands now try to create their own identity and look. They're doing their best to design stylish and unique devices to make themselves stand out from the crowd.

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.
