ASUS VivoBook X202E 11.6-inch Notebook Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Feb 06 2013 | 1:45A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It might not be an Ultrabook, but for what ASUS VivoBook X202E offers, that might not matter. Instead of focusing on performance, ASUS has concentrated on the feature-set, overall design and the aesthetics. Then it piled on a touchscreen for good measure. Sounds good for a $500 notebook, so its time to see if it impresses."

Intel demands Haswell ultrabooks be equipped with touch screens
     Tue, Feb 05 2013 | 4:37P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Taiwan-based supply chain makers have said they have received notification from Intel that all Haswell-platform ultrabooks should be equipped with touch panels to qualify for subsidies on the processors.

HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook 15t-4000 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Feb 04 2013 | 1:43P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook 15t-4000, besides having a long name, has a sleek design, a comfortable keyboard and a Thunderbolt peripheral port. It also has speedy performance thanks to its Intel Core i7 CPU and 8GB of RAM, but battery life is lacking."

MSI GX60 Gaming Notebook Review
     Sat, Feb 02 2013 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most people can’t afford to spend a few thousand on a notebook computer, even if it's on a solid gaming machine that doubles as a desktop replacement. To that end, today we'll be checking out a portable from MSI that aims to deliver a solid gaming experience without the excessive cost. The MSI GX60 comes packed with a quad-core AMD A10-4600M CPU clocked at 2.3GHz alongside AMD Radeon HD 7970M discrete graphics with 2GB of GDDR5 memory, a 15.6-inch non-glare display operating at 1920x1080, 8GB of DDR3 memory in a 4GBx2 configuration, 128GB of flash storage used as the OS drive and a 750GB 7200RPM disk drive for storage.

Toshiba Satellite U945-S4390
     Sat, Feb 02 2013 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Toshiba Satellite U945-S4390 is a decent choice for anyone in the market for a reasonably priced Windows 8-equipped ultrabook. It doesn't shirk on overall performance or useful features like USB 3.0 connectivity, Intel's Wireless Display technology, and a full-size HDMI port. One noticeable flaw, however, is its lack of a touch screen, but it's still worth checking out."

Asus VivoBook S400CA Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Feb 02 2013 | 11:50A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus VivoBook S400CA is a Windows 8 touch screen ultraportable laptop that offers a strong feature set and solid performance all without a high price. It does lack in battery life and overall display quality, but for the money, it is still a good value."

ASUS Vivobook X202E/S200E review: affordable touchscreen
     Thu, Jan 31 2013 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We liked the ASUS Vivobook X202E / S200E. It has a nice finish, enough connectors and a touchscreen with 10 touchpoints. As entry-level Windows 8 laptop it's an interesting option. If you get the most expensive of the two models with Intel Core i3, 500 GB hard disk and 4 GB of RAM you have yourself a very nice Windows 8 laptop, even if we'd recommend replacing the slow hard disk with an SSD.

ASUS Taichi 21: Ultratablet
     Thu, Jan 31 2013 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rotating displays, touch-sensitive displays, tablet/notebook transformers… All of these were mere concepts a few years ago, yet they’re increasingly invading the store displays of today. Other than the Lenovo Yoga notebook, we’ve also been surprised by ASUS’ Taichi 21.

REVIEW: ECBC Spear Laptop Tote @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Jan 24 2013 | 3:31P | Notebooks | PermaLink

Among all of these choices there is a company that specializes in making sure your investment is safe during travel. ECBC focuses on giving people a more functional, comfortable and stylish way of transporting laptops, tablets and other essentials."

News: On the marginalization of consumer laptops
     Thu, Jan 24 2013 | 1:17A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week, Gartner reported that PC shipments shrank by almost 5% last quarter. The firm pinned the blame on users relinquishing their PCs for daily use. As enthusiasts, we may find it hard to imagine folks ditching their computers for comparatively limited tablets. However, I have some pretty convincing anecdotal evidence that lends weight to Gartner`s thesis."

Lenovo Yoga 13 review: limber laptop
     Wed, Jan 23 2013 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2013 could very well become the year of the hybrids. The boundaries between tablets and laptops are growing increasingly blurry. Both devices have their own distinct advantages, but there seems to be an innate human tendency to want to combine things. So the laptop that also turns into a tablet, or the tablet that also turns into a laptop by means of a keyboard dock, only seem to be an inevitable next step. The natural evolution of mobile computers in a way. Today we are reviewing a laptop that can also serve as a tablet, the very flexible Lenovo Yoga 13.

Acer Aspire S7 Touch Screen Ultrabook Review - Worlds Fastest Ultrabook Intros New SSD Form Factor
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 2:21P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer S7 rips a page from Apple right off the bat (not a bad thing), in that, they have built an ultrabook that focuses on a white finish with light aluminum casing. At only 0.47 thick and weighing in at 2.86lbs, the S7 is one of the smallest ultras available. Its build is solid, just as we had previously spoken of with the MBA, and for the first time ever, a company has used gorilla glass for the display. Our sample system is equipped with an Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD, W8 64-bit, 802.11 AG/N w/ BT 4.0, Acer Crystal Eye HD Webcam and a 4 cell battery that is not being changed by the typical user anytime soon but should average out at just over 4 hrs per charge."

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jan 20 2013 | 11:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yet another Windows 8 Ultrabook touch screen notebook is the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch. It has a 14-inch display with an attractive design, a backlit keyboard and a responsive touch screen. It does suffer from below average battery life and is light on ports."

ASUS VivoTab RT TF600T review: Windows RT
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS VivoTab RT is a very good Windows RT tablet that looks great and has a nice finish. We don't have any complaints in terms of software or hardware. Nevertheless, we still can't think of a good reason to buy a Windows RT product. Windows 8 laptops with an Intel Atom Z2760 processor perform better, last as long, and, most importantly, they are compatible with all Windows software, not just Office 2013.

Dell XPS 12 Convertible Ultrabook Review
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tablets are extremely popular right now, but many users still need a more powerful machine to do serious work. For people who don't want two devices but desire the touch screen controls and convenience of a tablet, as well as the productivity capabilities of a notebook in a single machine, a convertible ultrabook may be a good fit. We're starting to see more and more ultrabooks that convert from a traditional laptop into a tablet. Not long ago, we took a closer look at Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook which features a touchscreen display with a dual-articulating hinge that allows the machine to convert to tablet mode. Today, we're going to take a hands-on look at Dell's XPS 12 convertible ultrabook, which takes a different approach...

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jan 19 2013 | 11:24A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There`s no better example of a modern Ultrabook than Lenovo`s X1 Carbon. It is slim, exceedingly well built, has a 1600x900 matte screen, sports an Ivy Bridge processor and weighs under 3 lbs. With a starting price of $1200, the X1 Carbon is expensive but this quintessential Ultrabook has everything a professional could possibly want."

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.
