Fast Is The 512 GB PCIe X4 SSD In The 2015 MacBook Pro?
     Wed, Jun 10 2015 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Apple announced the Early 2015 refresh of the 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display, they revealed that the key updates would be the "all-new Force Touch trackpad, fifth generation Intel Core processors and Intel Iris Graphics 6100, two times faster flash and longer battery life". For some reason, the significantly faster SSD was relegated almost to the end of the list, like an afterthought, when it represents the biggest leap in performance in the latest 13" MacBook Pro. How much of a leap? That's what we will be looking at today.

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix 2nd Gen Convertible Review
     Fri, Jun 05 2015 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the Dell Venue 11 Pro Convertible, the ThinkPad Helix 2-in-1 works on the same principle which means passive cooling, producing absolutely zero noise when operating, which is quite an achievement. The tested model comes equipped with the Intel Core M 5Y10 processor and is paired with 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz RAM and a Samsung 128GB SSD. We are also getting a keyboard dock and a tablet pen along with the Helix which add multiple functionality to the product.

Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabooks, shmultrabooks. Mobile or otherwise, gamers know there is no substitute for a massive slab of expensive and power-hungry hardware. As a result, Origin PC has implemented a straightforward tactic to grant laptops hairier chests: cram in an honest to goodness desktop CPU. Yep, Origin’s EON15-X packs a full-fledged “Devil’s Canyon” Intel Core i7 along a GeForce GTX 980M GPU into a relatively modest 15-inch laptop.

     Fri, May 22 2015 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus unveiled its latest addition to the Transformer series at CES in January, the Transformer Book Chi. Available in three sizes, the new Transformer Book Chi Series features a 2-in-1 detachable laptop design. Their flagship Transformer Book T300 Chi offers a 12.5-inch screen, an Intel Core M processor, and a fanless cooling solution. The more compact T100 Chi is a 10.1-inch model that promises all-day battery life. Prices for the Transformer Book Chi Series range from $399 to $899. Today, we’re going to take a hands-on look at the T300 Chi which is offered in two models starting at $699. We have the high-end T300CHI-FH011H model on hand for testing. This model is priced at $899 and features more RAM, a higher-resolution WQHD 2560 x 1440 resolution display, and a faster processor than the other 12.5" T300 Chi model...

HP Stream 7 - a £50/$69 Windows 8.1 Tablet
     Tue, May 19 2015 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For such a low cost device, the hardware is surprisingly decent. You’ll get a quad-core CPU, 32GB of storage and an IPS touchscreen (1280x800). It’s not going to win any benchmark competitions, but it’ll happily power browsers and other non-intensive applications. The 1GB of memory is the real bottleneck, but what more can you expect for the price. In terms of connectivity, all of the essentials are there. Having a USB port is a massive advantage over some tablets, as almost all USB accessory hardware will work on a Windows platform. Only a micro-B USB 2.0 port is included (to save space), so you may need a cheap adaptor to plug in some devices if they require the larger USB-A port that some PC peripherals use. Sadly there is no mini-HDMI port, which would have opened up a lot of interesting possibilities."

Dell Venue 8 7840 Tablet Review
     Mon, May 11 2015 | 12:25P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell is not a name many people would associate with quality tablets. Rather, most would associate the company with mass-produced office PCs, or at best the expensive Alienware brand. However, Dell have recently expanded into other areas, with tablets being one of them. The Venue 8 7840 is certainly a premium product, costing £330. Is it a quality device, however? We take a look and see if it's worth buying.

Cyberpower Fangbook Edge 4K Laptop Review
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The killer feature with the Cyberpower Fangbook Edge 4K, as the name suggests, is the inclusion of a 4K display with a mighty resolution of 3,840×2,160 pixels. Adding a 4K display to a regular Fangbook Edge laptop bumps up the price by £90 from £1175 to £1265 inc VAT and delivery. The rest of the specification is high end with a Core i7-4870HQ quad core processor, Nvidia GTX 970M graphics, 32GB of DDR3L RAM, three USB 3.0 ports and Intel 802.11ac WI-Fi.

MSI GS30 Shadow Review - A Notebook and GPU GamingDock
     Sun, Apr 26 2015 | 10:16A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That doesn`t mean the GS30 Shadow is without an upside! The GS30 Shadow combines a laptop and discrete, external GPU with a full bandwidth PCI Express connection, preventing any complaints about bottlenecks or performance penalties. If you have a need for a laptop but don`t require extended time away from a wall outlet, the GS30 might still fit the bill, even allowing for some impressive mainstream gaming performance when utilizing the integrated Iris Pro graphics. And when you get home and lock into place on the GamingDock, you are free to dive into the most hardcore of PC games at as high of image quality settings as your discrete GPU selection will allow."

Adam Elements Bella Power 6000mAh Portable Power Bank Review
     Thu, Apr 23 2015 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there's one thing most people i know are out to buy this time of the year in anticipation of their summer vacations that's portable battery packs since they all know how it feels to have your smartphone and/or tablet run out of juice while on the road or the middle of nowhere without any way of charging it. True some people choose car chargers since they are easier to use and quite cheaper but leaving out the fact that power coming from the cigarette adapter is not very clean for your portable devices there's also the matter of what will you do if your car is nowhere near you. So yes portable batteries are a must gadget if you want to be 100% certain that you will never be left without your smartphone and todays reviews is about one such product the 6000mAh Power Bella AEP-6000BT Portable Power Bank by Adam Elements.

"Today for review I have the Linkon Power Stick which is a small and very portable 3000mAh external battery that can charge most any device over USB and yes that even includes tablet from my testing. The Power Stick is like any other portable battery out there but what I found most interesting about this one was the charging cable. The Power Stick comes with a standard microUSB to USB cable for charging it and your devices but it also includes Apple and Lightning adapters which have a microUSB female connection on them so they just connect right to the included cable, no special adapters or tips required.

Lenovo’s ThinkPad W series
     Tue, Apr 07 2015 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But what if you’re one of the minority who actually appreciates and needs raw computing power? Fortunately, Lenovo’s ThinkPad W series still has you covered. This $1,500 workstation is the business equivalent of the consumer-grade gaming notebook. It’s one of the few designs where portability takes a backseat to raw power and ridiculous spec. Users shopping for a ThinkPad workstation aren’t looking to go unplugged all day long on an airplane tray table. They’re looking for power, reliability, and premium design, with function over form as a rule. And that’s precisely what they’ll get.
