Alienware M14x Review: Giving Portable Gaming Another Go
     Sun, Mar 04 2012 | 4:25P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I can see why the M15x was replaced with this laptop. That outgoing model was simply too large to carry on a daily basis, which meant there was little practical destinction between it and the M17x. The story is now different. The Alienware M14x offers a combination of affordability, portability and power that`s not available elsewhere."

NEWS: ASUS Zenbook SSD Review - Not Necessarily SandForce Driven Shows Significant Speed Bump
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If we told you that we spent $2400 to right a wrong in proving something that you as a consumer should be aware of, would you believe us? This report closely examines the ASUS Zenbook. Within the `Zen`, ASUS may provide either of two SATA 3 SSDs, these being the AData `SandForce Driven` XM11 or the Sandisk U100. There is no price difference between the two, the product number is the same and the consumer has no way of knowing which they will receive. The performance drop between the two is somewhat unbelievable, however, and we thought this report important enough to invest in one of each Zenbook to educate the consumer on the reality of their potential Zenbook purchase."

Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Review: Kickin It Old School
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might think that these would be unforgivable sins, but you?d be wrong. In fact, the T420 is perfect for its intended use. This is a work laptop, and that means functionality comes before style. Yes, this laptop is thick and heavy. And no, it?s not pretty. But none of that matters because it?s not part of what the T420 is built for. This is a laptop for people who type for hours every day. It?s a laptop for people who need tons of connectivity. It?s a laptop for people who empathize with George Clooney?s character from Up in the Air because they?ve been there."

Sony VAIO VPC-L218FX Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 11:41A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Sony VAIO VPC-L218FX is a 24-inch all-in-one desktop computer that has a nice display and lots of entertainment features, like Blu-ray and a TV tuner. While expensive, you do get a lot for the price you pay.?"

Sony VAIO Z Series VPC-Z390X Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?This high-end 13-inch Sony VAIO Z Series ultrathin laptop has a tough sell simply because of its price, but it does have a very lightweight design, good graphics performance and extra long battery life. Performance is very good and the included docking station provides you with an optical drive and discrete AMD graphics capabilities.?"

GreenSmart Markhor Laptop Sleeve @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 5:34P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a company who is serious about saving the environment comes a line of gear for transporting your laptops. GreenSmart has sent us their Markhor laptop sleeve, which is named after a large species of wild goat in northeastern Afghanistan that is also endangered. The Markhor is aimed at being your perfect lightweight solution for carrying your laptop and all the accessories. Their design started with accommodating the power brick for your laptop, then moved onto two sizes of pockets, one bigger, one smaller to ensure the bag can carry all your laptop accessories. On the back they put a full width slash pocket for a magazine, folders or notepad. For laptop protection, they reinforced the padding in the bottom two corners and right in the middle, so if you accidentally set down your laptop too hard, it should stay safe. They used vertical quilting from their softest liner fabric on the inside to guide your laptop in and out easily. On the bottles 2 bags count, 11-13 bottles get a second life in the making of this laptop sleeve. Now, lets? move on and see if the bottles were put to good use ?"

Dell Vostro V131 Notebook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *Dell has been angling most of their product stack towards value oriented market segments and the newest addition to the Vostro lineup ?the V131- seems to follow this same path but with some interesting twists along the way. As with many of Dell?s notebooks, it is available in a number of flavors ranging in price from just $399 to $900. Unfortunately, Dell`s website has it is tucked away from the prying eyes of most end users. * *"

Le Pan II TC979 Android Tablet Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 1:55P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Le Pan is a name you may not know but you really should. We have received so much feedback on our review of the original Le Pan TC970 tablet and our unboxing video is one of our most viewed videos on our YouTube page. The Le Pan tablets are really powerful and great tablets. There are so many Android tablets out there it is really hard to decide which one to get, especially with all of these larger brands shoving their overpriced and underpowered tablets down your throat. The Le Pan II is much improved over the original Le Pan tablet with a faster processor, more memory and it runs Android 3.2 with a free upgrade to 4.0 when it becomes available. Let?s take a look at see what the TC979 is all about."

How We Review Laptops At PC Perspective How We Review Laptops At PC Perspective
     Fri, Feb 17 2012 | 11:15A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the recent past we haven?t reported specific system temperatures. We used to report internal laptop temperatures, but this no longer seems worthwhile. Overheating systems no longer seem to be an issue, even with high-end GPUs. However, we are going to start reporting external laptop temperatures. This is concern to most users. Laptops with hot exteriors can become difficult to use."

Le Pan II Android Tablet TC979 Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Feb 16 2012 | 8:44A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Android tablets it seems that just about everyone offers one. Features tend to blur together and you get lost in the confusion. So which one is a good model, and what do you buy? Stick to name brands only or venture out into the lesser known brands? On first impressions the Le Pan II gets high marks. Le Pan who you say? Pay attention to this brand as if they continue the trend this will be a company to watch."

Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Feb 16 2012 | 8:44A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Lenovo ThinkPad T420 is a typical-looking 14-inch business laptop that has a few things going for it. First, it has really good performance due to its Intel Core i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM. It also has a decent amount of connectivity, including eSATA, and extra long battery life.?"

Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Feb 13 2012 | 3:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Asus Zenbook UX21E-DH52 has an 11.6-inch screen, an Intel Core i5 processor, and the same 4GB of RAM and 128GB solid-state drive as its bigger sibling. In terms of high performance in a trivially light package, it`s a netbook`s worst nightmare. But though it`s no nightmare to users, it has a couple of shortcomings that keep it from being a purely sweet dream, either.?"

Asus Zenbook UX21E Hands-On Video Demo:
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Zenbook UX21E is a new ultra-slim notebook by Asus, that is representative of the new "Ultrabook" class of machines, to use a term coined by Intel. The Zenbook UX21E is an incredible 3mm thick at the front and 9mm at the rear and has spun metal and hairline aluminum for a strikingly sleek appearance. It's also built with Intel's new low-power Sandy Bridge Core i7 2677M mobile dual-core processor, 4GB of DDR3-1333 memory, a 128GB SATA 3 SSD and an 11.6-inch LCD with a native resolution of 1366X768. We go hands-on in this video review but stay tuned in the days ahead for the full review.

Asus Eee Pad Slider Hands-On Video Demo
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Eee Pad Slider is a break-out device, much in the way the Asus Eee Pad Transformer broke the mold not so long ago when it was announced. Though it's built on the same base NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform that many 10.1 Android Honeycomb slates are these days, the Slider offers a netbook-like slide-out keyboard solution that takes the standard tablet experience to a whole new level. For not a lot more size and weight (or cost for that matter), you also get a full-sized USB port and HDMI output with Slider. We stepped through the device in detail in our full review recently, but today we thought we'd update our coverage with a quick video demo of the Slider in action. Enjoy and be sure to check out the full review, if you haven't seen it already...

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.
