Toshiba Satellite U845W Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another Ultrabook has made its debut on the market and this time it`s the Toshiba Satellite U845W. It sports an attractive design, a beautiful ultra-widescreen display and solid performance. It does run quite hot at times and the keyboard could use some work. In all, it`s a worthy addition to the Ultrabook category."

Sony VAIO T13 review: Ultrabook according to Sony
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The styling of the Sony VAIO T13 is characteristic for the sleek laptops of this Japanese manufacturer. It's of course a matter of personal taste, but we think it looks very good. You can clearly see the resemblance with the deluxe VAIO Z. The trademark screen is present, which raises the back somewhat into a more comfortable typing position. The Ultrabook itself is a bit of a mixed bag. It has excellent battery life, but the performance and display are subpar.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 2:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We weren`t sure what kind of tablet experience we should expect for $199 when we started this review. After using the Nexus 7 for a bit we quickly found that this tablet to fully functional and extremely fast. To be honest we were curious how this tablet would do because Adobe recently announced that it will no longer support the Flash Player browser plugin for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and onwards..."

Incipio Macbook Pro 13 Honu and Selvage Laptop Sleeves @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:39A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have more good-looking products from Incipio. They sent over two different sleeves for our 13 MBP, MacBook Pro. First we have the gray 13 Honu sleeve, then we have the 13 Selvage denim sleeve. These are not as much savers as they are protectors, which we will make clearer later in the review. The sleeves should be a perfect fit around our 13 MBP leaving little excess room. This is supposed to keep the weight down on the actual sleeve to make using them an option without breaking your back. Now, lets move on and get into the nitty-gritty review of these sleeves!"

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jul 26 2012 | 9:05A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Timeline Ultra M5 is yet another Ultrabook on the scene. This one offers an attractive design, great audio, an optical drive and discrete graphics. It does lack in screen resolution and overall performance, which holds this computer back from the rest of the pack."

TechSpot Laptop Avoidance and Buying Guide
     Mon, Jul 23 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re finally starting to see some action in the laptop market after a few stagnant months as manufacturers awaited the latest hardware to become available. Intel officially launched its Ivy Bridge architecture back in April, but it wasn’t until around May and June that the first laptops equipped with the new Core i chips started rolling out, bringing improved performance and battery life. When choosing the right laptop it all comes down to what you are willing to spend and what you plan to use it for. This guide will help you navigate through the countless options out there. As usual, we've narrowed down our favorite notebooks and grouped them into five different categories: ultraportables, business and workstations, desktop replacements, gaming, and budget-oriented machines.

Apple MacBook Air 13" Mid-2012 Review
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Steve Jobs unveiled the first MacBook Air in early 2008 to mixed reviews, but a series of redesigns and hardware refreshes through the years have resulted in a product line that has had a huge impact on the industry. PC makers have struggled to match the Air’s extremely thin and simplistic design, prompting Intel to announce the ultrabook initiative at Computex in 2011. New for the 2012 MacBook Air is the Intel Ivy Bridge processor sporting Intel HD 4000 graphics, higher capacity storage and memory options, as well as an improved 720p Facetime HD camera, and support for USB 3.0. The 13-inch system also received a $100 price cut, now starting at $1,199.

Acer Aspire TimelineU M3: a large Ultrabook
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabook is the term for the latest generation laptops using efficient Intel processors. Until now only smaller models were available, equipped with an 11.6-inch, 13-inch or 14-inch screens. Now the first larger Ultrabooks are beginning to emerge, such as the Acer Aspire TimelineU M3 that we are reviewing here. It sounds like the perfect combination, an Ultrabook with a 15.6-inch display. It's light, relatively fast and has a nice, large screen. The Acer Aspire M3 weighs under 2 kg, has a pretty fast SSD, and thanks to the GeForce GT640M you can definitely play video games in 1366x768 resolution. Moreover, the battery life is very good.

Low-End Laptop Graphics Solution Comparison: Five Options Go Head-To-Head
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 11:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you want a decent gaming experience you will do yourself a huge favor by considering a low-end discrete solution like the NVIDIA GT 630M. This solution offers a clear advantage over Intel HD 4000 and is also better than Trinity because, besides offering better overall GPU performance, you arent tied down to a lackluster CPU. Three of the five games tested (Dawn of War 2: Retribution, Civilization 5 and Diablo 3) were playable even at 1080p on the GT 630M."

Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook
     Sat, Jul 21 2012 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabooks are now taking over, today we have the Samsung series 5 Ultrabook 530U3B for review. This ultra notebook is a super fast slim line and light weight 13.3 inch laptop, packing 500GB of HDD storage and a Intel® Core™ i5 Processor 2467M (1.60GHz). As you would imagine this luxurious notebook doesn’t come cheap, as it will set you back £628. However, it is one of the cheapest in the ultrabook market.

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-DB51 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jul 20 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A-DB51 is an apt illustration of why the Ultrabook trend has caught fire. Equal parts brains and beauty, its sleek aluminum chassis packs Intel`s third-generation processor and an eye-popping 1080p display with a built-in IPS panel."

HP Envy 14 Spectre Ultrabook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Jul 19 2012 | 9:15A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HP`s classifies their new $1400 Envy 14 Spectre as a premium Ultrabook but what differentiates it from the host of competitors? Quite a bit actually. Its chassis that`s clad in Gorilla Glass, there`s spectacular display, Beat Audio integration boost sound performance...and we`re just scratching the surface. If there was ever a notebook deserved a premium moniker, this may be it.* *"

HP Envy Sleekbook 6z Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jul 19 2012 | 9:15A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Envy Sleekbook 6z is another Ultrabook laptop that looks to take a bit out of the crowded market. It tries to do this with a rock-bottom price tag of $600 and Beats Audio in an attempt to lure back to school shoppers away from other brands. Performance does lack, however, which is disappointing to say the least."

Anker Slimtalk 3200mAh External Battery Review
     Thu, Jul 19 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many times have you left home only to find out that your smartphone was almost out of battery? Well i don`t know about you all but it has happened to me more than once and although i remember a time when we didn`t have cellular phones (and not a care in the world) now these little devices have become part of our daily lives (for good or bad) and so most of us can`t afford to have them run out of battery while on the road. That`s also the main reason as to why i started testing battery packs (external batteries) a while back and i have to say that they have saved me from lots of trouble. Today`s review is about one such device and more specifically the Slimtalk 3200mAh External Battery by Anker."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
