The first laptop we`ve seen to show off one of the new Intel Ivy Bridge mobile processors is the Asus N56VM, a 15.6-inch desktop replacement. The chip is the Core i7-3720QM, a 2.6GHz quad-core, eight-thread processor with 6MB of cache. The laptop also comes with a full 1080p display and two graphics solutions?the CPU`s new Intel HD Graphics 4000 integrated graphics and the Nvidia GeForce GT 630M, a low-end discrete GPU."
?The Toshiba Satellite L655-S5161 is an entry-level laptop with an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. It provides good performance, but doesn`t provide a lot of the more advanced features that you`d find on a slightly more expensive laptop.?"
Our Dell XPS 15z review unit offers excellent processor performance, and while the GT 525M GPU is not up to powering the 1080p display in today?s latest games, it does offer adequate performance at lower resolutions. These traits are enhanced by gobs of RAM and a large hard drive. On paper, it looks ahead of the pack."

The Dell Alienware X51 delivers serious performance, including enough for gaming, without costing you an arm and a leg. It has an attractive design, USB 3.0, Blu-ray, built-in Wi-Fi and an easy-to-access interior. While nearly an overall home run, it does have a few small design quirks."
The Toshiba Satellite L745-S4130 has a 14-inch display that is backed up with good performance thanks to the Intel Core i3 CPU and 4GB of RAM. While it is slightly thicker than some other 14-inch laptops, it has a really great-looking display that makes it stand out from the rest."
The Toshiba Satellite C655-S5542 is a 15.6-inch portable featuring Intel`s humble Celeron B815 processor, a 320GB hard drive and 3GB of RAM. At under $400, however, it certainly makes waves in the budget notebook category, but the lack of extras, like USB 3.0, are apparent."
Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Dell were one of the first manufacturers to release an Ultrabook with up to date specification and today we have that model on our test bench. The XPS 13 mixes premium materials with some impressive specifications to try and tempt users away from more restrictive devices and into the world of performance mobile computing."
After spending some time with the ASUS Zenbook we must saw that we are amazed with how responsive and fast this notebook feels and it looks gorgeous. ASUS has really stepped up the game when it comes to fit and finish of their products and the quality of the great workmanship is really starting to pay off. The ASUS Zenbook UX31E is amazingly thin and after traveling through the airport with one, it is hard to want to use anything besides an Ultrabook now..."
There are only so many people willing to spend $1,300+ on a finger-thick machine, and many of them are already loyal Apple customers. The reality is, the average consumer wants to believe they're buying a premium product, but they don't necessarily want to pay premium prices. It's a tough nut to crack and most PC makers have failed when it comes to ultrathin notebooks, whether by charging too much or cutting too many corners.
Striking a balance between both extremes, HP's Folio 13 kicks off at an attractive $900 while packing the same core componentry you'll find in even the priciest of ultrabooks. The system has been available for a couple of months so our review isn't particularly timely, but after purchasing a unit a few weeks ago we thought it deserved attention considering how many system makers have gotten the formula wrong, despite Intel's guidance.
Touting an extremely slim profile, the Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180 is a compact desktop PC with roots in entertainment. It has connections and features that allow it to fit right in with your HDTV and become an entertainment hub for videos, music and more. While it`s definitely not the speediest system out there, it does the job well."
The Toshiba Satellite P755D is a solid performing multimedia laptop that features a great-looking 15.6-inch widescreen HD display. It has an AMD Fusion A8 CPU, 6GB of RAM and a 640GB hard drive that gives plenty of room for media storage. It also has a Blu-ray disc player, which further lends itself to multimedia use."
Today we are looking at the Samsung Chronos 7 Series Notebook. The New Samsung Chronos is part of the Korean companies new Ultrabook range, sporting impressive high-end specs such as a super fast 2.2GHz i7 quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM and a powerful onboard graphics card, the Radeon HD 6750M 1GB...
?The Panasonic TC-P50ST30 is a 50-inch 3D plasma TV that includes Internet applications and connectivity. It also has fantastic picture quality and very deep black levels, which gives this TV a huge advantage in picture quality. However, Panasonic curiously choose not to include any 3D glasses with the TV.?"
The HP TouchSmart Elite 7320 is an inexpensive all-in-one touchscreen PC that offers good performance thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM. It is a fairly standard 22-inch all-in-one PC, so there`s little that it offers to help it stand out from the rest of them on the market."
The Pantech Element is an Android Honeycomb tablet that is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8060 dual-core 1.5GHz processor. Other features are 1GB RAM, a 1024x768 TFT XGA display a 6,400mAh battery and 16GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB with an optional microSD card.
