MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G
     Sat, Oct 24 2015 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month NVIDIA introduced the world to the GTX 980 in a new form factor for gaming notebook. Using the same Maxwell GPU, the same performance levels but with slightly tweaked power delivery and TDPs, notebooks powered by the GTX 980 promise to be a noticeable step faster than anything before it. Late last week I got my hands on the updated MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G, the first retail ready gaming notebook to not only integrate the new GTX 980 GPU but also an unlocked Skylake mobile processor.

MSI GS40 6QE Phantom
     Thu, Oct 22 2015 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The starting point for this preview of the MSI GS40 6QE Phantom is a little background reading. KitGuru recently reviewed the 15.6-inch GS60 which has a great deal in common with this 14-inch GS40. Both laptops use the same Core i7-6700HQ CPU and Nvidia GTX 970M graphics and both are incredibly thin and light. The big change for the GS40, apart from the smaller chassis and screen, is that the panel is Full HD rather than 4K, which makes perfect sense. 14-inches is far too small for a 4K display and in any case the GTX 970M cannot drive that many pixels when you are playing games.

Lenovo Stack products
     Thu, Oct 22 2015 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week Lenovo sent us a full set of the ThinkPad Stack devices including a portable router, external USB 3.0 hard drive, Bluetooth speaker and external battery. With a price tag totaling nearly $400 for the entire set, there is a pretty high expectation for functionality, build quality and usability that Lenovo needs to hit, and they do a better job than I expected (honestly) to hit it. You don't have to buy all of the available Stack accessories, and that is part of the charm of the new product line - you can customize them to your own needs.

MSI GS60-2PE ‘Ghost Pro’ Gaming Notebook Review
     Mon, Oct 12 2015 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few weeks we have been bombarded with the launch of Intel’s Z97 chipset and the release of the Haswell-Refresh processors, however whilst all of this has been going on, there has been another launch that has taken place, although it seems that it was completely missed out due to the rumours and speculations surrounding Z97. This launch that I’m referring to has come from the green team over at NVIDIA. On the desktop market we are well and truly settled with the latest range of 700 series GeForce GTX graphics cards, however the notebook side of the market has taken a step forward into the next generation with the release of the 800m series of discrete mobile graphics solutions. Now before I go any further, I will answer a very quick question that has been asked over the last few days; “800 Series…? Does this mean that the desktop cards are soon going to be making a step forward as well?” Whilst I can understand where to question is coming from, after all it makes perfectly good sense to ask this, sadly the introduction of the 800m series is not a flag to indicate that the 800 series desktop GPUs are on their way. If anything I don’t expect to hear anything about the GTX 800 series desktop cards until the end of this year or the start of next. This said though, the 800m series is still a generation up from the 700m as we would expect and along with it comes new levels of performance and more features and technology. Over the 700m series cards, the 800m chips are set to offer a performance boost of around 10% over the previous generation, along with new technologies such as battery boost, where the power drain from the GPU core is reduced, whilst keeping the frame rates over 30fps. The battery boost technology doesn’t just give us a small gain in life either, NVIDIA say that in some cases we could expect to see notebook batteries lasting up to twice as long (compared to a similar system with a 700m series GPU) and alongside the more power conscious Haswell processors, mobile gaming is becoming more of a reality and not just a dream.

Microsoft’s ‘Shock and Awe’ Campaign Delivers Tantalizing Surface Book 2-in-1
     Wed, Oct 07 2015 | 12:34P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple may be the king of “One More Thing,” but Microsoft revealed today that it too can bring its own flavor of Shock and Awe to a captive audience. Leading up to Microsoft’s Windows 10 Devices event which was held this morning, we heard rumors that a 14-inch Surface tablet would be among the devices unveiled. Many dismissed the reports, but Microsoft delivered in spades today. Along with a new Surface Pro, Band, and Lumia devices, Microsoft had an additional surprise.

So, along with everything else, we present to you the Surface Book, which features a large 13.5-inch display with 267 pixels per inch (3,000 x 2,000). And would you just look at the display hinge — Microsoft calls it a Dynamic Fulcrum Hinge and we’ve never seen anything quite like it on a laptop. And instead of transforming into a tight wedge shape when the display is closed (and viewed from the side), the the device takes on a sort of an odd “U” shape...

It was only a few days ago that MSI announced a large selection of new notebooks featuring the newly released Intel Skylake processors and today we have the pleasure of taking a look at the GE72 6QF Apache Pro. GE72 is armed with Intel’s new Core i7-6700HQ, 16GB DDR4 and NVIDIA’s GTX 970M, so we’re expected good things from this mid to high-end notebook. On the subsequent pages we’ll be putting GE72 through its paces to give you a definitive verdict.

NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 980 GPU For High-End Gaming Notebooks
     Sun, Sep 27 2015 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA’s power-efficient Maxwell GPU architecture is a perfect fit for the notebook market, as evidenced by the slew of strong products up and down the company’s mobile GPU line-up. But today NVIDIA is taking things is a slightly different direction at the ultra-high-end, and introducing a “new” mobile GPU, that’s not really a mobile part—the GeForce GTX 980. Notice, there’s no “M” on the end of that model number. We're talking about what's essentialy the full desktop GeForce GTX 980, optimized for mobile form factors...

Battle Of The Hybrids: Microsoft, Lenovo
     Wed, Sep 23 2015 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Microsoft first announced the Surface Pro back in 2012 (it launched in early 2013), many Apple fans snickered. Here was Microsoft, releasing a somewhat thick and heavy tablet that not only had a kickstand, but also an “odd” cover that doubled as a keyboard. And to top things off, the device made use of a stylus. The late Apple CEO Steve Jobs famously said in 2010, “If you see a stylus, they blew it.” And many people thought that Microsoft did blow it, writing off nearly $1 billion in costs related to its Surface tablets during the first year. But Microsoft forged ahead with the Surface Pro 2, and later with the Surface Pro 3. Not only were customers becoming more aware of the innovative and powerful tablet, but competitors were also taking note.

Maingear Pulse 15 Review
     Tue, Sep 22 2015 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Slim gaming notebooks have been getting a lot of attention lately as newer, more efficient technology allows manufacturers to cram high-end parts in a chassis that looks no different than a general-purpose notebook. The Maingear Pulse 15 falls right into this burgeoning segment packing a Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, dual SSDs and a GeForce GTX 870M GPU in its a 0.7" thick body. Its standout feature is a 3K (2880 x 1620) display.

ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 Z580CA Intel-Powered Premium Android Tablet
     Tue, Sep 22 2015 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Competing with Apple in the mobile space isn't rocket science, it's just a matter of sticking to a proven formula for success -- build a premium device with superior specs than the one Apple is selling, inject it with Android, and then undercut the iWhatever in price. That's not to say Apple is the only premium device target of opportunity but we'd surmise Apple would consider it the sincerest for of flattery anyway. Incidentally, we've just described the ASUS ZenPad S 8.0. It's a well designed Android tablet with Intel inside, boasts better specs than the iPad mini 3 and a gorgeous 2048X1536 display.
