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...

HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4
     Mon, Nov 05 2012 | 2:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is HP's first Windows 8 notebook offering that features an attractive design and a sleek touch-screen display. It does give solid performance and speedy boot times, but the battery life is below par and the keyboard could be better."

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.

Lenovo ThinkCentre M92z All-In-One Desktop PC
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The functionally styled Lenovo ThinCentre M92z is a very capable all-in-one desktop PC with a quad core Ivy Bridge processor, Dolby speakers, a fully adjustable stand, and a 23" 1080p IPS screen. The display is also touch-capable but it frankly doesn't add a lot to the experience, though perhaps an upgrade to Windows 8 could change this. http://www.silentpcreview.com/Lenovo_ThinkCentre_M92z

Apple iPad Mini Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 4:44P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple iPad Mini Review @ HardwareHeaven.com There is an argument that the 7 form factor tablets from the likes of Google and Amazon dont eat directly into the iPad sales but it clearly isnt a risk worth taking for Apple and so today sees the launch of the iPad Mini. Priced at a more affordable level than the full size model can it offer something to combat sales of similar sized Android devices? We have one to test and find out."

Microsoft Surface Tablet (64GB / Windows RT) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 1:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft Surface Tablet (64GB / Windows RT) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com One of the aspects of Windows 8 Pro that really stands out when using it is that the operating system feels very much like it is designed for new, touch based hardware. For that reason one of the devices that should offer a great experience is Surface, Microsofts own tablet which runs a streamlined version of Windows 8, Windows RT. Today we take a look at the Surface to see if the new Windows experience finds an ideal home on the new hardware and if the tablet itself can compete in the high end of the mobile market."

Alienware M18x R2 Gaming Laptop: Dual GPUs Attack
     Thu, Nov 01 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Calling the Alienware M18x R2 a laptop is like referring to a Harley Davidson as a bicycle. Both have handlebars and ride on two wheels, but when the rubber hits the road, the Harley's going to leave a Schwinn in the rear-view mirror. So it goes with the Alienware system we abducted from Dell. Technically, it's a gaming laptop, but more accurately, it's one hell of a desktop replacement that leaves lesser systems in the dust. Large and in charge, the 2012 model M18x retains the same spacious 18.4-inch LCD panel from last year, but is updated with an Ivy Bridge-based Intel Core i7 processor clocked and two Kepler-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M graphics cards in SLI. It's a potent one-two combo made all the more powerful by a pair of Samsung PM830 256GB SATA 6Gbps solid state drives (SSDs) in RAID 0 and 16GB of fast DDR3-1600 memory...

ASUS ZENBOOK PRIME UX31A Ultrabook Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Oct 31 2012 | 11:13A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The original ASUS Zenbook UX31E was a good product, but it wasn`t refined and we knew that changes had to be done to make it a great product. The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A has proven to be a great successor thanks to numerous refinements and more importantly a faster CPU and GPU. We love the improved touchpad drivers, IPS display, illuminated keyboard, additional USB 3.0 port and how the charging cable stays plugged in! All of these changes and improvements have made the ASUS Zenbook Prime one amazing Intel Ultrabook..."

Asus Vivo Tab RT Review @ TechReviewSource.com

Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Vivo Tab RT is a 10.1-inch slate tablet that can be fitted with a notebook dock with a built-in keyboard. It`s a great way to have extremely portability while still having the functionality for a keyboard. It also has excellent battery life and is powered by the new Windows 8 RT."

Review of the 15-inch Samsung Series 9
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Series 9 NP900X4D costs around £1,100 and is a phenomenal laptop. It features a 15-inch display but somehow only weighs 1.58 kg, all in a good-looking magnesium chassis. You get a large battery that lasts a long time and you can expand the amount of RAM if you want. Windows 8 works great on it, thanks to the large touchpad that functions the same way a touchscreen does.

Checking out the Microsoft pop-up Store and Surface Tablet @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 8:25A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of days ago we stopped by one of the latest Microsoftpop-up stores. Microsoft has launched 32 of these pop-up stores around the US and Canada and lucky enough there is one in Pittsburgh at Ross Park Mall. The reason Microsoft is calling these pop-up stores is because they are temporary installments for the holiday season that are intended to give shoppers more options for buying Microsoft and other PC-related products. We had the chance to talk to the manager of the store and get a demo of Microsofts Surface tablet. Read on for our video coverage."

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.
