Toshiba Satellite C655
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This makes for a complex verdict. Yes, the AMD E-240 is slow. But this laptop, the Toshiba Satellite C655, is a nice laptop for the price - and this laptop only exists because AMD has finally produced a competent Atom competitor. The 15.6” display, with its correspondingly large keyboard, is more pleasant to use than your typical 10.1” or 11.6” netbook. If you’re looking for a laptop, but your budget is slim, the Toshiba Satellite C655 should be on your short list."

Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5" Laptop Review
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mobile computing is one of the most dynamic segments of consumer electronics in recent history. From the netbook craze from a few years ago, to smartphones and of course, the tablet computer. And while all of these extensions of mobile computing are exciting, the trusty laptop is still the most well-rounded option. Classified as a Lifestyle product, Lenovo's IdeaPad U260 aims to be your "thin, light, stylish travel companion". Our IdeaPad U260 came equipped with Intel's ULV Core i5-470UM operating at 1.33 GHz with 3MB of L2 cache, Intel HD Graphics, 4GB of PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM, a Hitachi 320GB 5400 RPM hard drive, integrated Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 1000, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, a 4-cell Li-Polymer battery and a 12.5" HD AntiGlare 1366 x 768 display. Right away we can see that the U260 is a very sleek and sexy system, complete with a leather wrist rest and chiclet-style keys. Total system weight is 3.04 pounds, thanks in large part to the one-piece magnesium-aluminum cover. Thickness is measured at only 18mm.

Viewsonic ViewPad 10s tablet
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We received an unpolished version of Viewsonic’s ViewPad 10s a week ago or so. This isn’t the first ViewSonic tablet that we’ve had the chance to encounter, but no less interesting for that. The device is based on NVIDIA’s 1 GHz Tegra 2 chip, which makes this tablet much more powerful than many PCs that we keep in our homes. This is no longer a typical tablet - a small handy device that can play a YouTube video or surf the internet - this ViewPad plays serious films and runs serious games. Our sample had 4 GB of internal memory, which may be increased to 16 GB in the final revision. If that proves to be insufficient, you can always extend the capacity with a microSD card, with a capacity of up to 32 GB, forming a serious storage device…

Lenovo ThinkPad EDGE 13 notebook
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 7:42P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since acquiring IBM’s famed ThinkPad brand five years ago, Lenovo has done their best to restore this legendary brand to its former glory. It’s undeniable that they’ve done little wrong in this regard, but there’s always been that impression of a lack of innovation that would truly give ThinkPad the push it deserves…

Apple iPad 2 Tablet Review
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 2:21P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The magic is back for a second act, baby, and it doesn't play for the Lakers (that's the other Magic). The magic we're talking about plays for team Apple, and while the competition tries to come up with a so-called "iPad killer," Apple may have beat them to the punch. How's that for irony? We're of course referring to the iPad 2, Apple's second tablet in as many years, and the first successor to the slate that started it all. Don't confuse that to mean Apple invented the tablet, which it didn't, but the Cupertino outfit was the first to figure out how to market and sell such a device to the mainstream, almost single-handedly reviving a mobile concept that many didn't think could co-exist with laptops and netbooks...

Acer Aspire TimeLineX 4820-TG-6847
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Acer Aspire TimelineX AS4820TG-6847 has really good performance thanks to its Intel Core i5 CPU and AMD's Radeon HD graphics. It's a really great multimedia machine, but the quality of the 14-inch display left a little disappointed. However, the 640GB hard drive and 4GB of memory make up for it."

GIGABYTE P2532: Thinnest 2nd Gen Core i7 Notebook Hands On
     Thu, Mar 17 2011 | 3:16P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With all the notebooks flooding the market it's nice to find one with a grand claim to fame. "The thinnest 2nd Generation Core i7 Notebook", as with all tech titles like that are fleeting, but they are good while they last. The GIGABYTE P2532 multimedia laptop offers a stylish design with a powerful quad-core 2nd generation Intel Core i7 processor. In its 15.6" chassis it sports a full HD display with 1920×1080 resolution and a LED backlight screen. Under the hood we've got a 500GB 7200rpm HDD, 4GB of RAM and NVIDIA GeForce GT550M/ 2GB VRAM with Optimus technology. Taking a look around the unit, you'll find a DVD burner, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, and THX Tru Studio Pro technology in its 4 speakers and 1 subwoofer."

Taiwan-based notebook makers, after evaluating the damage caused by Japan's earthquake on their upstream supply chain, pointed out that supplies of notebook battery cells and MLCCs were both affected slightly, and makers will need to start planning measures to handle rising prices for components such as DRAM, according to sources from notebook makers.

FSP NB L90 Universal Laptop Power Adapter
     Sat, Mar 12 2011 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
John D. Barrow once said, "There is no reason that the universe should be designed for our convenience." This insightful quote, stated by one of the most distinguished of peoples (Actually, I doubt more than five percent of people who read this know who he is), is entirely... stupid. I'm not saying that Barrow was wrong in making such an obvious statement. But to make things a little more interesting -- and for you readers with no clue as to what Barrow has anything to do with the FSP NB L90 -- let me rephrase my introduction. John D. Barrow once said, "There is no reason that the universe should be designed for our convenience." And Jezza Toe (Referring to one of my many notorious nicknames), in all his wisdom, power, and fame, replied, "But there is ample reason companies should be designing products specifically targeted for our convenience." Of course, the universe doesn't pick and choose its favorite sons and daughters, but you sons and daughters can most definitely pick and choose the products that make your life a little less painful. What do I mean exactly? Is there actually a simple solution to making life -- for lack of a better word -- easy? My answer to you is 'no'. Life as we know it is still full of hardship and struggles (Stupid Javad); long story short, it kind of still sucks. However, today -- the day in which you decide to read this review -- I will give you a little bit of insight on FSP Group's NB L90 universal notebook adapter, and how in some situations it could possibly make your life less complicated and more efficient. I'm not suggesting that the NB L90 is the only adapter out there for one's consideration. But through this review, I will show you whether this laptop PSU makes it or breaks it. So without further adieu, let's read on to see what I've found out!

Lenovo ThinkPad T510
     Thu, Mar 03 2011 | 6:09P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The solid build of the ThinkPad T510 make it a good traveller, but it is weighty and battery life is not as good as it could be. The keyboard is a pleasure to use, though some may find the range of options and combination of TrackPoint and Touchpad a little overwhelming. If you are lured by the low price, hold fire. You may well find you need to upgrade a fair few elements to get the laptop that suits you best. Nonetheless, in sheer performance and usability terms we have to concede that Lenovo has kept up the good work with its ThinkPad T510 and produced another good addition to a great series.”

Asus N53SV
     Tue, Mar 01 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Asus N53SV is a speedy 15.6-inch laptop that's definitely an all-purpose machine as it has a broad range of features and the speed to back it up. You'll find all of the necessary connectivity options, including USB 3.0 and eSATA. However the design of the keyboard is rather frustrating and leaves us scratching our heads in confusion.”

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