News: On the marginalization of consumer laptops
     Thu, Jan 24 2013 | 1:17A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week, Gartner reported that PC shipments shrank by almost 5% last quarter. The firm pinned the blame on users relinquishing their PCs for daily use. As enthusiasts, we may find it hard to imagine folks ditching their computers for comparatively limited tablets. However, I have some pretty convincing anecdotal evidence that lends weight to Gartner`s thesis."

Lenovo Yoga 13 review: limber laptop
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2013 could very well become the year of the hybrids. The boundaries between tablets and laptops are growing increasingly blurry. Both devices have their own distinct advantages, but there seems to be an innate human tendency to want to combine things. So the laptop that also turns into a tablet, or the tablet that also turns into a laptop by means of a keyboard dock, only seem to be an inevitable next step. The natural evolution of mobile computers in a way. Today we are reviewing a laptop that can also serve as a tablet, the very flexible Lenovo Yoga 13.

Acer Aspire S7 Touch Screen Ultrabook Review - Worlds Fastest Ultrabook Intros New SSD Form Factor
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 2:21P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer S7 rips a page from Apple right off the bat (not a bad thing), in that, they have built an ultrabook that focuses on a white finish with light aluminum casing. At only 0.47 thick and weighing in at 2.86lbs, the S7 is one of the smallest ultras available. Its build is solid, just as we had previously spoken of with the MBA, and for the first time ever, a company has used gorilla glass for the display. Our sample system is equipped with an Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD, W8 64-bit, 802.11 AG/N w/ BT 4.0, Acer Crystal Eye HD Webcam and a 4 cell battery that is not being changed by the typical user anytime soon but should average out at just over 4 hrs per charge."

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 11:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yet another Windows 8 Ultrabook touch screen notebook is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch. It has a 14-inch display with an attractive design, a backlit keyboard and a responsive touch screen. It does suffer from below average battery life and is light on ports."

ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T review: Windows RT
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS VivoTab RT is a very good Windows RT tablet that looks great and has a nice finish. We don't have any complaints in terms of software or hardware. Nevertheless, we still can't think of a good reason to buy a Windows RT product. Windows 8 laptops with an Intel Atom Z2760 processor perform better, last as long, and, most importantly, they are compatible with all Windows software, not just Office 2013.

Dell XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook Review
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tablets are extremely popular right now, but many users still need a more powerful machine to do serious work. For people who don't want two devices but desire the touch screen controls and convenience of a tablet, as well as the productivity capabilities of a notebook in a single machine, a convertible ultrabook may be a good fit. We're starting to see more and more ultrabooks that convert from a traditional laptop into a tablet. Not long ago, we took a closer look at Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook which features a touchscreen display with a dual-articulating hinge that allows the machine to convert to tablet mode. Today, we're going to take a hands-on look at Dell's XPS 12 convertible ultrabook, which takes a different approach...

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 11:24A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There`s no better example of a modern Ultrabook than Lenovo`s X1 Carbon. It is slim, exceedingly well built, has a 1600x900 matte screen, sports an Ivy Bridge processor and weighs under 3 lbs. With a starting price of $1200, the X1 Carbon is expensive but this quintessential Ultrabook has everything a professional could possibly want."

Acer Aspire S7 Review
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 3:31P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This touchable, classy ultrabook is targeted right at the road-warrior, power-hungry, super-user. The S7 is an expensive machine. The starting price hovers near $1400, but our Core i7 configured spec clocks in at $1650. For the price customers do see a superlative spec sheet and a beautifully designed body. I know what you're thinking. The S7 had better be amazing for that kind of money. Don't worry, with a few qualifiers, the Aspire S7 easily ranks among the top Windows 8 machines. Is that enough to justify the cost?

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Windows 8 All-In-One Review:
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 1:33P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The all-in-one PC form factor is a brilliant, if not obvious, evolution of the desktop computer. AIO systems offer the maximum amount of screen real estate while drastically minimizing the total footprint of the computer by packing all the components inside the monitor (or in the case of this particular AIO, the base of the stand). Even better, now that ten-finger touch input is de rigeur, these machines offer new methods of computer interaction that are alternately ideal for wide-eyed youngsters, old luddites, and seasoned power users. (Give a toddler a touchscreen and she’ll figure out how to pull up her favorite album, play a simple game, and scroll through photos in minutes. Give her a mouse and keyboard and she’ll destroy or delete everything on your computer in roughly the same amount of time.) Although some AIOs are intended as higher-end machines for professionals, others are designed primarily for home use by family types and those with more casual workloads. The latter category is where the Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 lands...

Trendnet 500Mbps Powerline Networking - BCCHardware
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 11:55A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to be looking at a networking kit from Trendnet that is designed for those who want a wired network, but don`t have the infrastructure or ability to run a traditional wired network. Powerline networking has been around for quite a while - and while it certainly isn`t new, lately it`s been experiencing resurgence as people want better security, speed and less interference than what wireless networks can provide. . ."

Toshiba Satellite LX835-D3380 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jan 17 2013 | 10:29A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
`The Toshiba Satellite LX835 is an all-in-one desktop PC with a 23-inch touch screen display that is really the only good thing about this PC, which is unfortunate. Toshiba chose to use a mobile CPU, which really limits performance and the included peripherals feel really cheap."

News: Asus VivoBook X202E notebook reviewed
     Wed, Jan 16 2013 | 6:57P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For just $550, Asus` X202E ultraportable offers an 11.6 touchscreen, a 17W Ivy Bridge CPU, and a beautiful chassis with brushed metal surfaces. We take a closer look at the system and the trade-offs it makes to hit such a low price."

MSI GT70 Limited Dragon Edition - 17.3 Gaming Laptop Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Jan 14 2013 | 2:30P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent 2 years, MSI did not focus on the Ultrabook series as many other brands, they mainly focused on high performance of Gaming series Notebooks, that makes MSI to become a well known gaming products company in the market, also shows how important of the Gaming related market"

Lenovo Thinkpad Twist Convertible Ultrabook Review
     Mon, Jan 14 2013 | 1:34P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After hearing about the Yoga a few months back, I was intrigued by the form factor and the entire concept of a convertible ultrabook. The Thinkpad Twist executes this concept very well. The mid-tier sample that we reviewed contained a processor and memory configuration more than adequate to the task at hand. Its light and easy to carry around at a mere 3.5 pounds, and has a solid feel to it because of the magnesium material used in the design. I was worried about the hinge mechanism, but found it to be well designed and solidly constructed."

Asus S46CA-XH51 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jan 11 2013 | 2:30P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Small business owners looking for an affordably priced ultrabook with some design oomph will find more than a few things to like about the Asus S46CA-XH51. It`s a handsomely designed Windows 7-equipped ultrabook that comes equipped with a built-in DVD burner, USB 3.0 connectivity, and a full-size HDMI port."

Hands-On With Lenovo’s ThinkPad Helix
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 2:29P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We had a chance to stop by Lenovo’s suite today at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, to check out some of the latest and greatest offerings from the company. First up is the new Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2. This tablet runs on Windows 8 Pro and features a 10.1-inch multi-touch HD display. Lenovo claims this is the lightest Windows 8 tablet on the market with a starting weight of 1.25 pounds. We also got a chance to see the ThinkPad Helix. This machine gives you the best of a full Windows 8 notebook as well as a Windows 8 tablet. The ThinkPad Helix features an 11.6-inch, 10-point multi-touchscreen panel as well as pen input capabilities and a full-sized keyboard experience. All of the functionality of this machine is found in the lid, which enables you to disconnect the display from the keyboard to use the machine as a tablet.
