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."

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 Review: Trying To Keep Up
     Thu, Sep 27 2012 | 9:55A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovos IdeaPad U410 currently starts at $799. For that you receive the same hardware found in our review unit including an Intel Core i5-3317, NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M graphics processor and eight gigabytes of RAM. More expensive models upgrade you to a Core i7 processor or pairs a 1TB mechanical drive to the cache drive, but those are the only significant differences. In top trim youre looking at a price just north of $1,000."

Giada Mini PC A51 Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I always thought an HTPC had to be a big, basically full sized computer, or at least something with at least a microATX motherboard in it with a standard video card along with a decent CPU. My thoughts on that have changed recently since Ive got to spend some time with the product Ive got for review today which is the Giada Mini PC A51. This little PC is whats called a Nettop as its close to a Netbook really but its not portable. The A51 features an AMD T56N CPU with a Radeon HD 6320 integrated graphics chip which is capable of 1080P playback on your HDTV via the built-in HDMI connection. The A51 also has built-in wi-fi, Ethernet and Bluetooth so youve got connection choices as well, its also Windows 7 compatible and to top it off it only uses 30 watts of power. The A51 is very small, you can easily hide it among your other home theater components or even mount it to the back of a monitor if you want to use it as a regular PC for everyday use. So read on to learn about an inexpensive Mini PC that would make a great addition to any home theater setup or it could be used as a light duty computer for your everyday needs. "

Posted by: STAFF

It`s performance is backed up by an Intel Core i5 CPU, 6GB of RAM and a 640GB hard drive."

IDF Tech Zone: Ivy Bridge Windows 8 Tablets
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:26P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Traditionally at IDF, Intel's Advanced Technology Zone is where all the cool stuff happens. Whether it be public demos setup for hands-on opportunities with next generation Intel technologies or backroom sessions with Intel Advanced Engineering and Marketing teams showing early engineering samples to members of the press, this place is where we get up close and personal with many of the unveilings that Intel rolls out over the course of the conference. Yesterday we spent time with Intel's Performance Engineering and Benchmark teams discussing what encompasses a satisfying user experience on the ultra-mobile platforms that are all the rage in the market today. On display were a number Windows 8-driven tablets powered by Intel...

Lucid Logix VirtuMVP for Notebooks First Look: Integrated And Discrete Join Forces
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hopefully Lucid will get these flaws rectified in short order. They shouldn`t be difficult to fix. Lucid has already done the hard part. Theyve managed to squeeze a minor to major performance increase from a laptops existing hardware without introducing in-game glitches or instability. If they slap on a decent coat of paint theyll have a compelling product - and the Origin EON11-S may end up being the only 11.6 gaming laptop worth buying."

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Review: Finally A Great Ultrabook Keyboard
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 11:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I must admit that I personally like the Carbon. After all, I write for a living, so a great keyboard wins me over. But I have a hard time figuring out a reason why I would recommend it over the HP Envy 14 Spectre or Zenbook Prime. Neither is as suitable for travelers, but truth be told, the Carbon is also a poor choice. A serious traveler should buy a T430s or X230 and deal with the added weight. That leaves consumers, who will prefer the Envy 14 Spectres better display and far more attractive exterior. And while the keyboard is not as good, its not bad either."

HP EliteBook 8470p Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 7:47P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP EliteBook 8470p is a solid business-class laptop armed with enough firepower to justify adding multimedia powerhouse and gaming rig to its resume. For those who don`t need a ruggedly designed system, though, comparable laptops with cheaper price tags will get the job done."

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.
