2x Dell XPS 15 review: Core i7 or Core i5?
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 5:11P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 15s are deluxe laptops that look great. This is true for both models we tested, but we definitely prefer the version with Core i7 and GT 640M over the one with Core i5 and GT 630M. The i7 version costs more of course, but it's worth the extra money. The processor is quite a bit faster, and you can actually play games with that graphics card.

HP Spectre XT 13 inch @ ocaholic
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:29A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Spectre XT, HP has built a very classy Ultrabook. Already at a first glance you can see that the manufacturer spent a lot of time on designing all the little details as well as the overall appearance. Furhtermore they`ve used only high quality materials. Sounds like a promising combination, doesn`t it?"

     Sun, Oct 21 2012 | 11:06A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Samsung 5 Series Ultrabook, offering full-size performance in a pint-sized package. With an 2nd gen. Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 128GB SSD, and a 13.3 screen, wrapped into a 3.25lb package, we`ll see if it lives up to the promises."

Cooler Master NotePal I300 Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:09A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know that Cooler Master has no shortage of products meant to aid in the cooling of your favorite laptop. We have reviewed many over the years and today we will be adding another one to the collection. The new NotePal I300 is a simple but well refined cooler that is thin and very lightweight. The 160mm fan sitting in the middle is what will separate this cooler from the many in the same class or price range."

iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-17 Gaming Notebook Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given all the frenzy around ultrabooks, Microsoft's Surface, and the low power potential of future chips like Haswell, you might think that desktop replacement-class laptops had fallen out of favor with modern laptop manufacturers. iBuyPower's CZ-17 "Valkyrie" is proof that they haven't -- and while its size and weight won't appeal to road warriors or anyone who needs a svelte portable, it packs a number of significant features into its chassis, at a price that won't break the bank...

Toshiba LX835-D3230 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Oct 11 2012 | 9:48A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba LX835-D3230 is a speedy, if utilitarian all-in-one desktop PC. It may be all you need for shared family computing, at least until Windows 8 touch-enabled PCs start to enter the market. It has a bright HD-quality screen, quad core power, and could be a decent kitchen PC."

     Thu, Oct 11 2012 | 9:36A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Alienware M18x R2 is definitely one powerhouse of a computer. It has a fantastic 1080p display, top-of-the-class performance and good battery life. While quite expensive, it makes a great gaming laptop and will handle anything you throw at it."

Apple's MacBook Air 13-inch (Ivy Bridge) Review,
     Sat, Oct 06 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So here it is, the mid-2012 refresh of Apple's trend-setting MacBook Air line. In all likelihood, the MacBook Air inspired Intel's Ultrabook specification, created so that Windows users would have access to a similar overall experience on their platform of choice. The MacBook Air is the real McCoy, so to speak, and though technically not an Ultrabook, the newest models cross over to Intel's 3rd generation Ivy Bridge Core processor microarchitecture. In fact, Ivy Bridge is at the heart of Apple's mid-2012 refresh, bringing with it not only greater processing power, but a graphics speed bump from Intel HD Graphics 3000 to Intel HD Graphics 4000, topped off with DX11 compatibility and improved power efficiency to boot. But how does the new MacBook Air compete versus the current crop of Ultrabooks and is it enough to warrant an upgrade?

ASUS G75VW-T1086V review: powerful gaming laptop
     Sat, Oct 06 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you're looking for a gaming laptop that looks good, performs well and comes in a complete package, then the ASUS G75VW-T1086V is an excellent choice. It has a powerful quad-core processor, a matte Full HD display, a fast graphics card, a large and fast SSD and a large hard disk. ASUS also includes a quality laptop bag and gaming mouse. This is perhaps not the cheapest way to acquire the hardware, but ASUS added enough to the formula to justify the price.

Acer Aspire S5 Ultrabook Review
     Thu, Oct 04 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Easier said than done" is the best phrase I can think of to describe Intel's ultrabook initiative. On paper, the plan seemed easy enough, although manufacturing partners and knowledgeable consumers alike would testify that it's been anything but. Aspirations to compete with Apple's ultrathin MacBook Air have been met with a number of compromises as hardware makers struggle to find the perfect blend of features while keeping the overall price somewhere around Intel's $1,000 target. Could a few hundred bucks tacked on the top end make a difference between a vanilla ultrabook and something truly special? That's something Acer is willing to gamble on with its latest flagship ultrabook.

Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail Details - An SoC Built for Tablets
     Mon, Oct 01 2012 | 9:48A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The results above aren`t earth shattering but I didn`t expect them to be. If Intel had suddenly told us that their Atom Z2760 was going to outlast the many ARM-based designs on the market most would have balked. All Intel is saying with this is that they are no longer at a disadvantage - and that could be enough to really push the x86 architecture to the masses in tablet form; finally."

Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD Ultrabook Review
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For all the performance being packed into today’s super-slim ultrabooks, gaming and multimedia are clearly the weakest links. Most ultrabooks have Intel integrated graphics that aren’t designed to take on graphics-intensive games. Storage space, graphics processing, and display quality can be key areas in many ultrabooks that leave heavy multimedia users wanting a little more. With the Zenbook Prime UX32VD, Asus is looking to deliver a bit more graphics punch. The Zenbook Prime UX32VD is very slim: it is 0.22 inches thick at the back and tapers to only 0.7 inches thick at the front. But no one will mistake it for a MacBook, even with its mostly aluminum shell. The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD is, as ultrabooks go, a strong multimedia system. Thanks to the discrete NVIDIA graphics with Optimus technology, the UX32VD puts standard ultrabooks and their integrated graphics to shame...

Western Digital My Book VelociRaptor Duo Review
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thunderbolt, originally dubbed “Light Peak”, is a dual-protocol interface that combines PCI-Express and DisplayPort into one metaprotocol with bi-directional speeds of up to 10Gbps. The technology makes even the relatively speedy USB 3.0 interface (5Gbps) look downright pokey by comparison. What would you do if you were a storage company and had this next-gen I/O technology in hand? Probably more or less what Western Digital has done, which is to make an external storage device that teams Thunderbolt’s impressive interface bandwidth with a pair of the company's fastest 1TB VelociRaptor 10,000RPM HDDs. WD calls it the My Book VelociRaptor Duo.

Review: ASUS Tranformer TF300 @ ocaholic
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Transformer Pad TF300T, ASUS has another successor for their Tranformer series. This tablet ships with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC which offers not only a lot of performance but also excels when it comes to power consumption. Furhtermore there is the Transformer`s party piece which is the additional dock that features an integrated keyboard as well as an additional battery pack. Everything put together it seems like a compelling offer."

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.
