Western Digital My Net N900 HD Router Review
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 11:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This technology was developed in-house by Western Digital and is a form of very advanced QoS. This tech prioritizes streaming services such as Skype, Netflix, Hulu Plus, VUDU, YouTube, and Xbox LIVE over any other traffic. The My Net router makes itself aware of the upstream and downstream caps present on the connected modem and ensures those streaming services always have full bandwidth by actively stepping in and limiting bandwidth allocated to everything else."

Dell Alienware M17x R4 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 11:05A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For users looking to get gaming performance, the Dell Alienware M17x R4 definitely has it thanks to the new Ivy Bridge processor and accompanying Nvidia graphics. It also benefits from a Blu-ray drive, four USB 3.0 ports and an HDMI-input, which is more than other similar laptops have to offer."

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Review
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently stepped you through the details of Asus' lower cost Transformer Pad 300 and felt that it was a fine alternative for users looking to save a few pesos. But let's be honest, somebody has to compete with Apple's new iPad and its ultra-high resolution Retina display. Though the Transformer Prime's Super IPS+ display certainly competes in overall brightness and contrast, pixel density of the panel at its native 1280x800 resolution couldn't compete with Apple's super-tight 2048x1536 on the iPad. Alas the innovation and refinement beat goes on with Asus thankfully, and the all new Transformer Pad Infinity we'll be showcasing here today offers a new 1920x1200 full HD Super IPS+ display to rival the iPad, as well as some goosed-up internals like a faster NVIDIA Tegra 3 4+1 core SoC (System on a Chip), improved camera performance and a few other trimmings...

Sony VAIO E15 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 4:05P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony VAIO E15 looks to stand out from the rest of the laptop crowd by having a more stylish design. It also has a competitive price at $500 as well as all the latest in connectivity options and a comfortable keyboard. Performance is good, but we wish a faster hard drive option was available."

ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T review
     Sun, Jul 01 2012 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen quite a few ASUS tablets pass by our test lab. Still, the Transformer Pad Infinity TF700T is a special model. That's because it doesn't have the 1280x800 resolution of the Eee Pad Transformer Prime and the Transformer Pad TF300T, but an impressive 1920x1200 resolution. This is slightly more than Full HD resolution on a 10-inch display. To find out what the user experience is like and whether the higher price is worth it, Hardware.Info thoroughly tested the latest tablet by ASUS.

ASUS Zenbook UX31 Ultrabook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Jun 28 2012 | 4:08P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mobile computing is quickly evolving with thinner, more versatile designs and no product better defines this focus than ASUS` new Zenbook series of Ultrabooks. The UX31 has been around for a while but it still represents the pinnacle of industrial design with a sleek body and even better looking specifications. But in an environment that`s cluttered with lower priced competitors, this Ultrabook will be fighting an uphill battle for recognition. * * * * * *"

Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Jun 26 2012 | 2:08P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell`s XPS 13 is what we would call the quintessential Ultrabook.  It has one of the slimmest chassis we have seen, uses top shelf materials and incorporates a very quick SSD which makes up for a lack of processor speed.  It is nearly perfect for on-the-go users looking for an ultra portable notebook with long battery life.  But Dell did make some sacrifices. "

HuntKey X-MAN 90W Universal Notebook Adapter Review
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 11:54A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every single person out there has pretty much owned or at least used a notebook at least once in their lives so you all know how large their AC power adapter can be making it quite difficult to carry them around (even inside a notebook bag they take too much space). Size aside most of the time these are not only hard to find in the market but also quite expensive to replace when they die (if you decide to get a genuine one). Because of these two reasons it really comes as little surprise that many manufacturers have released their own 3rd party AC power adapters which are not only smaller and cheaper than the genuine ones but in some instances they also offer improved electrical efficiency. Huntkey is one such manufacturer and today we will be taking a rather quick look at their X-MAN 90W Universal Notebook Adapter."

Samsung Series 9 15” NP900X4C Ivy Bridge Ultrabook
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most confusing thing to me is why Samsung, a company that makes one of the top SSDs on the market, would venture elsewhere to supply SSDs for their own Ultrabook, an Ultra that is arguably the best on the market in many respects. Our report today will be an overview of the new Samsung Series 9 15? Ivy Bridge Ultrabook along with a more detailed analysis and very biased opinion with respect to where Samsung seems to be falling short in their quest for the perfect Ultra.

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...

Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 11:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Series 5 550 Chromebook laptop provides a cloud-based computing experience from within a traditionally-designed laptop. It sports an improved Google Chrome OS interface, 3G-cellular connectivity, a comfortable keyboard and a good-quality display. Not without its downsides, however, as it runs quite hot and the need for an Internet connection."

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.
