Ultrabooks vs. 13" MacBook Air: Is the Apple Tax Real?
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is putting a lot of weight behind the Ultrabook concept and expects it to be the main driver of PC market growth in the short term. Apple has already experienced some of this with the MacBook Air, which has rapidly become one of the best sellers in the Mac lineup. Arguably it's the laptop to beat if you are looking into buying an ultrabook-styled portable. With that in mind, we’re taking a couple of Wintel alternatives to check how well they stack up next to the new 13-inch MacBook Air and perhaps settle the old debate about the so-called “Apple Tax” — at least in this category, since there's no way a single comparison can be representative of the entire Apple Tax argument.

Bitfenix Shinobi XL: mild-mannered powerhouse
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do you need to house an XL-ATX motherboard, up to nine expansion cards, five 5.25-inch drives and seven 3.5-inch drives? And would you like to do so in a case that isn't visible to astronauts on the ISS? Then Bitfenix claims to have the perfect solution for you with the Shinobi XL. OK, it's not that small, but still more subtle than many cases out there. As the name suggests, there is more to this case than meets the eye, not just a lot of space. Time to take a closer look.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina review
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The answer to the question "What is the best laptop for MacOS X" is easy. It's this 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina. It's light-weight, powerful and has a fantastic screen. The same holds true for the Windows environment, unless you're a hardcore gamer. In that case you probably want a more powerful graphics card. The price of the new MacBook Pro with Retina is rather high though. The entry-level version with a 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, 256 GB SSD and 8 GB RAM costs £1,799. The 2.6 GHz version with 512 GB SSD costs £2,299. If that's still under your budget, you have the option of 16 GB RAM, a 768 GB SSD, and a faster Core i7 processor as well. Even with the high price in mind, this is still a very unique and innovate laptop that combines high performance with low weight and good battery life, not to mention the beautiful display. The absence of upgrading options and the daunting price tag are not enough to prevent us from giving the MacBook Pro with Retina a Gold Award.

Microsoft's Surface Could Kill HP, Dell, Other PC OEMs
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 5:16P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft's Surface isn't just an attempt to take on the iPad or an articulation of MS's independent design philosophy -- it's a fundamental threat against the OEMs who've spent decades as Microsoft's partners and collectively destroyed the industry's perception of the PC as a high-value product. The adversarial roots run deep. Microsoft didn't tell its partners about Surface until three days before the event and gave only the most minimal details on the product. Only the largest vendors even got a phone call; Asus and Acer, the 4th and 5th largest PC manufacturers worldwide, have stated that they had no idea anything was coming. For OEMs who have spent decades working in lock-step with Redmond, that's deeply unsettling...

The Lenovo ThinkPad X230 is a 12-inch ultraportable notebook which has a very portable design that includes enough power, especially since it takes advantage of Intel`s third-generation CPUs.

Lenovo ThinkPad X230T Convertible Notebook
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 5:40P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ThinkPad historians may recall Lenovo's X220 (laptop) and X220T (convertible tablet / notebook) from last year. Both were formidable machines, but Intel's 3rd-gen series of Core processors weren't out yet. Turns out, that kind of horsepower was missing in certain models. Now, however, the company's dual-core Ivy Bridge CPUs are out in full force, bringing a nice boost in computing throughput as well as energy efficiency to a space that's begging for both. The X230T is a netvertible in its truest sense. Open it up, and it's a 12.5-inch ultraportable notebook that seems a bit heftier than the competition. This is a machine that will have additional value proposition down the road, however, when Windows 8 is released. Spin the reversible IPS panel around and fold it down, and you've got yourself an extremely spacious touchscreen tablet (albeit one with Windows 7 instead of the more common Android or iOS tablet operating systems).

Sony Vaio T13112FXS Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jun 10 2012 | 9:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabooks are certainly not hard to come by these days, but the Vaio T13112FXS from Sony aims to be different. It has a sub-$800 price tag, a 500GB hard drive and a new Intel Core Ivy Bridge processor. While a really great deal, it does suffer from a mediocre display and an uncomfortable keyboard."

Acer AC700-1099
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 4:17P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The hardware inside the Samsung Series 5 is nearly identical to what was inside the Acer AC700-1099 that we reviewed late last year. We’re talking an Atom processor that must rely on its own IGP, two gigabytes of RAM and a tiny–but quick–16GB solid state drive. While the equipment is the same, the pricing has changed. When we reviewed the Acer Chromebook it was $349.99. That has been slashed to $279.99. The Series 5, which used to be priced at $429, is now sold for just $299. Let’s see if improved software and a lower price can turn Chromebooks into winners.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
