Lenovo Y700 Touch 15-inch Gaming Laptop
     Fri, Mar 11 2016 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When you hear someone say “Gaming Laptop” does Lenovo come to mind? Likely not, but I think after this review it just might. Today we are taking a look at Lenovo’s latest gaming laptop which is the Y700. It follows in the footsteps of the Y50 and comes in a few different flavors. The version that we are taking a look at is the Y700 Touch, which is the 15.6-inch version that has a 10-point touch display. Under the hood you have an Intel Core i7-6700HQ quad core processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M dedicated graphics, 16GB of DDR4 memory, a 128GB solid state drive as well as a 1TB 7200 RPM hard drive for your games. The Y700 also has cool features like a nice red backlit keyboard, powerful JBL speakers, and a very slick aluminum lid. Lenovo also has unleashed their own gaming accessories which they sent us their gaming headset, mouse, and backpack. Read on and we see what the Y700 is all about and how these gaming accessories compliment it."

Late-2015 Dell XPS 13 Review: Refreshed With Skylake
     Fri, Mar 11 2016 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell recently refreshed its popular XPS 13 with new hardware to bring it up to date with current CPU and storage offerings. The updated model now sports a Skylake-based Intel processor and a Samsung PM951 NVMe solid state drive, plus a few minor tweaks to its already impressive design. When the current iteration of the Dell XPS 13 debuted back in January of last year, it was nearly unrivaled in terms of its power to size ratio, and overall value in the space. The ultrabook market has heated-up a lot since then though, and the XPS 13 has some stiff competition at the moment...

HP Spectre x360 15t Review: A 4 Pound
     Fri, Mar 11 2016 | 2:12P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was just about this time last year that HP first took the wraps off its chic, convertible ultrabook, the original Spectre x360. Although the Spectre name wasn’t new, HP’s approach to the ultrabook’s design language had been completely revamped, and it showed in the quality of the then all-new Spectre. Now, HP is releasing another revamped version of its slick ultrabook, making promises of an even better experience for users who want something just a bit larger in a 15-inch format. The craftsmanship that made the original Spectre x360 such a hit is clearly present in the updated 15.6" model we'll be showing you here, which has the same stylish look and ultra-thin chassis... And of course, the machine is now infused with Intel's Skylake processor platform and all the new features and technologies that come along with it.

Dell Inspiron 15 7559 4K Laptop Review
     Thu, Mar 10 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2014 and 2015 both saw huge increases in the availability of 4K displays. That availability is continuing to increase in 2016, especially with 4K laptop displays being more and more common. That is made evident by the Dell Inspiron 15 7559, which also boasts a Core i7-6700HQ, 16GB RAM and a GTX 960M graphics chip all for just £999.

ASUS Chromebit CS10 ChromeOS HDMI Dongle
     Fri, Feb 26 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Chromebit CS10 is unique from other devices based on Google’s ChromeOS because unlike these Chrombooks (aka laptops) it does it from a HDMI dongle. Besides the flexibility to BYOD[isplay], the form factor’s inherent price advantage ($85/£90) also makes it a relatively cheap way to play with ChromeOS, and test its unique approach to delivering a secure, low maintenance platform. I must admit that the browser-only apps available means that it is unlikely to replace any PCs in my stable, but as a very portable web browsing and media player it could be the perfect casual consumption device, or with its support for Google Play, Netflix, YouTube, and DIY streaming apps potentially earn a place in the travel bag.

Review: MSI GS40 6QE Phantom 14? Gaming Laptop @ Custom PC Review
     Wed, Feb 17 2016 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the introduction of more power efficient CPUs and GPUs along with the introduction of more flexible storage form factors such as M.2, the once massive gaming laptop is now significantly smaller. Over the past couple years, MSI has been among the pioneers of the new trend of ever shrinking gaming laptops, introducing an array of portable systems including the GS70, GS60, GS30 and now the GS40..."

Dell XPS 13 Review
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 1:14P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The revamped Dell XPS 13 includes just a handful of improvements: a new Skylake CPU, a USB Type-C port that supports Thunderbolt 3, and the option to get the laptop in gold. But considering the Broadwell-based Dell XPS 13 was our favorite laptop of 2015, we just had to get in the new model and see if it's still a class-leading device.

ASUS PB328Q
     Thu, Feb 11 2016 | 1:10P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For productivity and content creation users, the ASUS PB328Q makes a lot of sense. It's low cost, it has solid color reproduction both before and after custom calibration and it's viewing angles and high contrast blacks make it perfect for that environment. Is it going to be up to the level of some of the significantly higher priced professional displays, even from ASUS? Likely not, but for a third or less of the cost, I think the trade-offs are totally valid. For gamers though, it's a different story. With so many excellent gaming displays on the market, some offering variable refresh rates, at the same or just slightly higher prices, I can't get behind the recommendation. If you really love the idea of having a 32-in screen with a resolution your GPU can handle, then maybe you are willing to sacrifice overdrive performance and ghosting for that specific trait."

Asus ZenBook UX305CA Review
     Sat, Feb 06 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We had good things to say about Asus’ super-slim ZenBook UX305 when we evaluated it early last year. Attractive, sturdy, and downright tiny, the UX305 was a good value for the price, and it had good looks too. A year later, the ZenBook is back with the updated UX305CA, so we got one in to see if the new version is as balanced a machine as last year’s model. The Zenbook UX305CA we will be showing you here has Windows 10 and an updated Core M processor, along with improved graphics, but many things haven’t changed: it’s still tiny, it has the same wedge design and the lid still props the keyboard up at angle when opened. If you liked the UX305, you’ll be happy to know that many of its best features stayed on in the UX305CA...

PC Specialist Octane II Laptop review
     Sun, Jan 31 2016 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PC Specialist has configured a mid-range Skylake laptop called Octane II that packs enough punch for gaming. You get a choice of GeForce GTX 970M or 980M graphics as well as support for as many as four storage drives and SSDs. Our sample arrived with a Core i5-6600 CPU, 16GB HyperX Impact RAM, GeForce GTX 970M graphics, a 120GB SSD and 1TB hard drive which is fairly close to the base specification.

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.
