News: Nvidia Shield Tablet is packed with ports possibilities
     Thu, Jul 24 2014 | 6:07A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just under a year since the release of the Shield Portable, Nvidia has announced a second member of the Shield family. As expected, it`s the Shield Tablet, an Android slate with an emphasis on gaming. Like the Shield Portable before it, the Shield Tablet will sell direct from Nvidia, not from a partner company. The Shield Tablet extends Nvidia`s Android gaming focus to a new form factor, making it one of the first tablets anywhere with a fairly pure gaming mission."

Poweradd Apollo 7200 mAh Solar Battery Charger Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Jul 06 2014 | 8:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solar power is everywhere around us, its the sun after all, and last I checked theres few trillion or so years left of life in it so I figure why not take advantage of it? Today for review Ive got the Apollo Solar USB Charger from Poweradd and its basically a large solar panel with a USB port on it to charge your devices while on the go, wherever you go. The Apollo can be charged by the sun obviously, but it can be also charged over a standard USB port if need be. So read on to learn more"

SteelSeries Sensei Wireless @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Jun 16 2014 | 10:56A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently with both my headsets and mice I have been all about the wireless devices. Living wireless is great, the reason a lot of companies hadnt pushed it in the past was because the technology was costly and had too much lag for gaming. Things have changed and almost everyone has introduced their wireless gaming models, everyone except SteelSeries. Well today, I finally have the chance to take a look at the Sensei Wireless. Their Sensei models have been popular and have even been my go to wireless mouse, I cant wait to see if the Sensei Wireless lives up to the high expectations that the wired models set."

Poweradd Pilot 2GS 10000mAh Dual USB Portable Battery Pack Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, May 21 2014 | 12:12P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems portable batteries are very popular lately as Ive got another one for review but this one is from a different company than all the others, the company is called Poweradd and the battery is called the Pilot 2GS and its a 10000mAh capacity battery with dual USB ports. The one blatantly different thing Ive noticed about these batteries is that even though theyre getting larger in capacity, theyre getting smaller in size and that can only be a good thing of course. The Pilot 2GS has dual UBS ports as I mentioned, one is 1amp and the other 2.1amps so you can charge virtually any USB enabled device, tablets, phones, mp3 players, pretty much anything and that makes it a very valuable thing to have when you need some extra power on the go.

Lenovo ThinkPad 8 Tablet Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, May 20 2014 | 10:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 8-inch tablet market is literally overflowing with choices. What makes 8-inch or similar tablets great is that they are small enough that you really do not feel like you are carrying around say a laptop or Ultrabook. While Lenovo does offer 8-inch tablets, this is a ThinkPad tablet, which means it is targeted at business users. Being a business user on the go you want something powerful enough and that can do everything that your PC or laptop can do. I would much rather carry around an 8-inch tablet than an Ultrabook. Running a full version of Windows 8.1 and with its 1920 x 1200 display the ThinkPad 8 might give you a reason to ditch your PC. Read on as we take a look..."

Anker 40 watt 5-port Wall Charger and 2nd Gen Astro3 12000 mAh Battery Review
     Wed, May 07 2014 | 8:14A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Anker 40 watt 5-port USB wall charger is currently selling for just $25 on Amazon and is available in both white and black. The 2nd Gen Astro3 12,000 mAh battery is going for $45 on Amazon, also available in both black and white. It`s hard to recommend one over the other since they fit into such different spaces. If the Astro3 would allow you to both charge and draw power from it to some degree that might help but otherwise these units are for totally unique scenarios. If you have a lot of devices that need to be charged at home or on the road (at the hotel) then the 40 watt 5-port wall charger will be perfect. If you need power on the go while you in your car, covering an event or just don`t have time to sit and watch a phone power meter go up, then the Astro3 is the answer."

Sandberg Solar PowerBank 6000 mAh
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 3:50P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I may not be much of a camping person especially not in the woods like some people i know but i do like spending much time on the beach and on the mountain so to avoid any unpleasant circumstances i always like to carry a portable battery pack along with me (actually i have two one in my backpack and one in the car just in case) but the bad thing with such devices is that you need to recharge them every now and then to ensure that they have some battery juice left in them in case you need it. Luckily manufactures came up with a somewhat brilliant solution to that issue and so there are currently quite a few portable battery pack models in the market that also feature a solar panel at the top which can be recharged by using the energy from the sun if the battery happens to be empty. Sandberg has been manufacturing interesting gadgets for quite some time now and since they just launched their very first 6000mAh solar PowerBank we decided to check it out."

Lenovo ThinkPad X240 Ultrabook Review: A Philosophical Shift
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 4:04P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The next big topic of controversy is sure to be the headfirst jump into low-voltage parts, flanked with a mere single SODIMM slot for RAM (8 GB total system memory supported) and an extremely conservative firmware which limits the systems performance (via throttling) in the presence of even moderate GPU activity. This trio of developments might not bother most users, but for those who appreciated the dual-mode versatility of the previous X230 and X220 (highly portable, adequate battery life, and still full-voltage, unhindered performance when called for), this plunge into portability-first mentality will certainly give them pause. For examples of how it has affected the GPU and CPU performance of the machine in context with the X230, see our related benchmarks."
