When you are mainly a desktop user and are used to your home setup it is very uncomfortable and hard to get adjusted to a different system or a laptop. This happens to me all the time when I am traveling, especially because my home system is setup with dual displays. Laptops only have 1 screen, but what if I was to tell you that Lenovo has a light in thin portable travel monitor that you can plug into a laptop or PC that has a USB connection? The monitor I am talking about is the ThinkVision LT1421. Read on as we check it out!"
The Lenovo IdeaPad Y480 is an all-new 14-inch mid-size laptop that features Intel`s latest third-generation quad-core CPU and discrete graphics. It also has a solid construction and good overall performance. The display, however, has a lower-resolution compared to other similar laptops, which is a downside."
The Asus G75VW-DS71 is a 17-inch desktop replacement notebook with a strong focus on gaming performance. Asus built it to have speed, especially the graphics performance and with the inclusion of a Thunderbolt port. While having good overall performance, it does fall a little short of what we expected."
HP is one of the latecomers in the ultrabook market. Nevertheless the worlds largest PC manufacturer has an interesting alternative to the competitors models in its portfolio. With 1.49 kilogramm it isn`t the lightest model but available but therefore it comes with a unique and decent design."
Our performance benchmarks quickly eliminated my hopes that this system could serve in either role. Atom was not a very good processor when it debuted, and since then Intel has allowed it to wither on the vine. Lenovo should have gone with an AMD E-450 APU instead - it also can have trouble with HD video in certain situations, but in my experience the Fusion APUs have been far superior to Atom paired with a discrete GPU."
Lenovo, who we all know for their popular ThinkPad and IdeaPad notebooks also has a complete line of All-in-One PC systems. Today we are taking a look at one from their Essential Series, the C325 All-in-One. This system features an AMD E450 processor, AMD Radeon HD 6320 graphics, 4GB of RAM, 500GB of disk space, WiFi and much more. Did I mention all of this is inside of a 20-inch display? Since the entire system is basically just a display it makes it perfect for an office, bedroom, or even your kitchen. Read on to see what this system is all about!"
Asus has revamped its entry level Transformer tablet, squeezing Nvidia's Tegra 3 processor into a slimmer, sexier body. The trademark keyboard dock remains, as does the affordable price tag. We take a closer look to see how the Transformer Pad 300 measures up.
A common complaint of people interested in buying a tablet is the considerable price of these devices. More recently we've witnessed a price drop in tablets by smaller manufacturers, but none of the big names have really followed suit yet. Companies such as Viewsonic are launching tablets with IPS panels in the £200-£250 range, and the real cheap tablets (below £160) are getting increasingly better. The 7-inch 70b internet tablet by Archos falls in the latter category, even though it is is fully Google-certified. In other words, consumers wanting to spend less on a tablet are getting more and better options. ASUS desires a piece of this pie as well, and has released the Transformer Pad TF300, which we will now take a closer look at.
The 10.1-inch Asus Transformer Pad 300 boasts a beautiful IPS display, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 SoC. Our tablet also came with 32GB of onboard storage plus 8GB of ASUS Webstorage space, along with an SD card slot for expansion (there will be a 16GB option, as well). There’s a 1.2MP webcam on the front and an 8MP camera on the back; although the latter boasts some excellent features, including autofocus, there’s unfortunately no flash...
MSI GT683DXR Gaming Laptop Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Based on a familiar chassis the GT683DXR offers high end mobile speakers, a full HD screen and powerful CPU/GPU combination. Did we mention the dual hard drives in Raid 0 or 8GB of DDR3-1333, upgradable to 32GB? No. Well read on to find out what MSI can offer for the mobile enthusiast."
The Gateway NV57H54u is a 15.6-inch powerhouse laptop that offers great performance, a comfortable keyboard and long battery life all without a high price. It does suffer from a mildly dim display and some touchpad issues, but other than that, it`s a solid buy."
The first laptop we`ve seen to show off one of the new Intel Ivy Bridge mobile processors is the Asus N56VM, a 15.6-inch desktop replacement. The chip is the Core i7-3720QM, a 2.6GHz quad-core, eight-thread processor with 6MB of cache. The laptop also comes with a full 1080p display and two graphics solutions?the CPU`s new Intel HD Graphics 4000 integrated graphics and the Nvidia GeForce GT 630M, a low-end discrete GPU."
?The Toshiba Satellite L655-S5161 is an entry-level laptop with an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. It provides good performance, but doesn`t provide a lot of the more advanced features that you`d find on a slightly more expensive laptop.?"
Our Dell XPS 15z review unit offers excellent processor performance, and while the GT 525M GPU is not up to powering the 1080p display in today?s latest games, it does offer adequate performance at lower resolutions. These traits are enhanced by gobs of RAM and a large hard drive. On paper, it looks ahead of the pack."
