Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 10:08A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is a stunning all-in-one desktop PC that sports a beautiful, Apple-like design and a multitouch 27-inch 1080p display. The design of the PC is definitely its strongest selling point, but the touchscreen and multimedia features add to it. It does lack in terms of performance and touch-based applications."

Acer S5 Ultrabook: with hidden connectors and Thunderbolt
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Acer has created a very interesting Ultrabook with the Aspire S5, which they have clearly positioned above the existing Aspire S3. The retractable connectors are a fun gimmick, but the presence of a Thunderbolt connector is even more exciting. Another unique feature are the dual SSDs consisting of two 64 GB SSDs in RAID 0.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 review: affordable and powerful Ultrabook
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the price you get a pretty powerful and well-equipped Ultrabook. Most brands offer a Core i5 at this level, but Lenovo includes an energy-efficient Core i7 and 8 GB memory. And instead of the typical 500 GB hard drive you get a 1 TB version and even a dedicated graphics card by Nvidia. While it's just the GeForce 610, it's still a nice addition.

Lenovo's Hot ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 2:06P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad line of notebooks has likely won more awards over time for the products’ durable, functional design elements than just about any other family of notebooks on the market. However, it could be said that the business class workhorse line of laptops wasn't winning any beauty contests. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing. ThinkPad's traditionally have been known for their high quality fit and finish and unfailing dependability, but there are far more glamorous notebooks out there for those looking for some style over substance. Recently Lenovo unveiled the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook, and though there are some unmistakable ThinkPad design cues, this 3lb little minx of a machine is about as sleek and nubile as any Ultrabook we've laid eyes on...

Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Review: Blasphemy
     Fri, Aug 10 2012 | 9:43A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For ThinkPad enthusiasts the change of keyboards is the X230?s defining feature. There are already some nasty rage-reviews on Lenovo?s website. Personally, I like the keyboard, and I would certainly buy this laptop for my own personal use. But I?ll also admit that I did like the old one just a bit more. The rest of the laptop is simply excellent. Lenovo?s ThinkPads have always impressed me, but the X230 goes a step further. It?s the best ThinkPad I?ve ever used and, by extension, one of the best laptop?s I?ve experienced. Even the price is reasonable. Our review unit rings up at about $1000, depending on the weather and Lenovo?s web coupons."

Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch (Mid-2012) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Aug 09 2012 | 10:05A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Mid-2012), updates the classic laptop with Intel`s latest third-generation quad-core processor and adds USB 3.0 connections, which are arguably much more useful than the niche Thunderbolt port that Apple has invested so heavily in. The design, however, could use some updating as it is now feeling a bit dated."

Lenovo ThinkVision LT2323z Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Aug 06 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink

It is the first monitor to be certified for use with Microsoft Lync, a business-focused VOIP technology.

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Aug 05 2012 | 3:57P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Google Nexus 7 is a fulfillment of a promise made last year by Nvidia, that they would soon offer a $200 tablet with the power of their latest quad-core mobile architecture. In practical terms, that means an Android tablet with the raw processing power of flagship tablets but costing a third of the price. The tablet, with Asus hardware and the latest Google Android software, offers one of the most compelling cases for tablet ownership yet at a 159 price point that UK customers have never experienced. As a friend of mine mentioned at the time, At that price, you can`t afford not to get one. Have Google crafted a masterpiece, or were too many corners cut to hit that remarkable price point? Let`s find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Sony VAIO Z (2012) SVZ1311C5E: 1.15 kg with quad-core
     Sat, Aug 04 2012 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony VAIO Z is a very impressive laptop with interesting possibilities. It has the weight and the dimensions of an Ultrabook, but with the hardware of a full-size laptop. No ultra-low voltage processor, but a normal mobile processor with the option even of a quad-core model. Despite the powerful hardware inside, the VAIO Z still lasts about 5.5 hours.

Waterfield Designs Muzetto Leather Notebook Satchel Review
     Fri, Aug 03 2012 | 1:46P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"At a certain point in ones' career, there comes the realization that a dog-earred, scruffy nylon notebook bag given out by some long forgotten trade conference has outlived itself and it's time to find a proper replacement. Made in San Francisco, the Waterfield Designs' leather Muzetto horizontal notebook bag is available in five different sizes, two different leathers (black or brown) and with six different accent colours."

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display Review
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple’s coveted Retina display has finally found its way to a full-size notebook courtesy of the latest MacBook Pro. But anyone familiar with this new system knows that Apple didn’t simply add a higher resolution display to the standard MacBook Pro frame. Instead, there’s an entirely reworked chassis that’s nearly as thin as the MacBook Air and weighs more than a pound less than the standard Pro. Customers can also configure a Retina system with up to 16GB of RAM and 768GB of flash storage, versus a maximum of 8GB of RAM and 512GB of solid state storage on a standard Pro. But hey, who are we kidding, the only reason that most people are going to dish over the extra cash for Apple’s latest and greatest is the 2880 x 1800 resolution goodness of the Retina display. And I’ll go ahead and let you in a little secret: it’s a thing of beauty.

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

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..."

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.
