Maingear eX-L 15 Gaming Notebook Review
     Mon, Apr 25 2011 | 3:38P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enthusiasts generally prefer to roll their own rigs, but when it comes to notebooks, the notion of building a system from scratch becomes less practical and appealing. We recently had a chance to meet with Maingear and tour the company's build facility, and one thing was immediately apparent: these guys are enthusiasts just like us. So, when Maingear offered to send us what they claim is the fastest 15-inch notebook on the planet, we rounded up our gauntlet of benchmarks and told them to "bring it on." Maingear sent us their revamped eX-L 15 and it's equipped with an Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor and the fastest mobile graphics chip Nvidia currently offers, the GeForce GTX 485M. Let's see if Maingear can make good their claims of the fastest 15-inch notebook we've ever tested.

Posted by: STAFF
Here is a snippet: "Today we have the ASUS N53SV notebook on our test bench. This multimedia/moderate gaming notebook has a lot of style to go with some nice specification under the hood.

MSI CX640 15.6-inch Notebook Review
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sandy Bridge issue no doubt caused problems for motherboard manufacturers, but many forget about the issue affecting notebook ones. With the issue all sorted now, it's time for companies to start releasing notebooks based on the Sandy Bridge chipset. The first one we're looking at comes from MSI and is labelled the CX640, and on the specifications front it does indeed look the goods with an Intel i5-2410M clocked at 2.3GHz on the H65 chipset. We've also got 4GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1333MHz in the form of two 2GB modules. Graphics comes from NVIDIA with the 520M that carries with it 1GB of GDDR3. Looking at storage, we've got a 500GB Hitachi drive. The screen is quite large at 15.6" and carries with it a 1366 x 768 resolution. Outside of these specifications there's a fair few extras on the CX640. On the left side we've got our power plug, 10 / 100 / 1000 networking port, VGA and HDMI out along with two USB 3.0 ports."

Asus G73SW Sandy Bridge Gaming Notebook Review
     Sun, Apr 17 2011 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now in its third generation, the G73SW represents an architectural upgrade to what was already a powerful mobile PC. The goal remains the same, which is to recreate the desktop experience in a portable form factor. Whether you need to hammer out a spreadsheet, encode a Blu-ray video, or frag some foes at a LAN party, the G73SW promises to help get the job done. By all means, this is a desktop replacement, but with the addition of Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture, there's potential here for battery life to be extended beyond what you would normally expect from a high octane notebook. The question is, can it deliver on all fronts?

Asus U31JG-A1
     Sun, Apr 17 2011 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Asus U31JG-A1 ultraportable laptop has a lightweight aluminum construction, long-lasting 8 hour battery, and plenty of features, like a backlit keyboard and Bluetooth, that adds icing to the cake. But the U31JG-A1 suffers from a glitchy trackpad—a problem that's hard to ignore—which keeps it from a higher recommendation.”

Acer Aspire AS7552G-6436
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Aspire AS7552G-6436 is the kind of desktop replacement laptop that starts out strong and then tapers off at the finish line. For instance, storage is aplenty with a 640GB hard drive, while the 17-inch widescreen and powerful ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6650 chip are a boon for movie buffs and avid gamers.”

Lenovo IdeaCentre K330-11691AU

Posted by: STAFF
“The Lenovo IdeaCentre K330-11691AU, an entry-level/mid-range general-purpose desktop, has the power to do some light multimedia work, including editing photos, transcoding the occasional video, and posting multimedia onto your blog site. It has all the right components to keep a family happy for the usual 5 to 7 years that they hold on to a PC, and it's not likely to "feel slow" until the tail end of its life.”

Lenovo IdeaPad U260: A Stylish Ultralight Notebook
     Sun, Apr 10 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the market for an ultralight notebook with a gorgeous LED backlit LCD and don't want to spend more than $1,000, the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 should be on your short list. The U260's claim to fame is its 12.5-inch form-factor, making it larger than your average netbook--but at a mere 18mm thick and 3 lbs, it's almost as light as one. Lenovo claims the U260 is the first 12.5-inch ultralight machine on the market, and pricing starts at $899...

Archos 101 Internet Tablet (Android) Review
     Fri, Apr 08 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One company who are known for their quality mobile devices are Archos and a couple of months back they announced their own up to date range of Android tablets, the 70 and 101. These devices are based on Android 2.2 (currently) and aim to provide a better quality of product than the cheaper tablets while aiming to get close to the performance of the Tab. Today we are looking at the 101 to find out if it offers an acceptable level of quality, performance and features for those who don't see the Tab (or Xoom) as value for money."

ASUS N73JQ notebook
     Fri, Apr 08 2011 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has definitely decided to change their image as fast as possible and catch up with the more popular brands in terms of notebook computers. Several years back, their mobile department was all but disregarded, but things changed over time, and their notebook profits have risen on a quarterly basis. The fact that they have given notebook PCs their full attention led them from churning out average models to certain series being prestigious even when compared to their competitors. Besides, ASUS has seriously undertaken the task of separating user classes, which usually provides them with a hit in every category - from the K series which covers the widest spectrum of “ordinary” users and those who are “unsure” what specifications they really need, to the N and G series which are a story on their own. The models from the G (Gaming) series are a fantastic alternative to brands such as Alienware, offering similar or better performance at a significantly lower price point. On the other hand, the N series, the representative of which we’re reviewing this time, aspires to be the best multimedia notebook in its class - and we have to admit that it’s off to a good start!...

Lenovo ThinkPad X120e Review: AMD Fusion Infused
     Fri, Apr 08 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By now most of you probably know that AMD’s Fusion technology bakes a CPU and GPU into one single piece of silicon. And while we have already reviewed the E-350 APU by its lonesome, we've been patiently waiting for a system builder to integrate the chip into a retail-ready, ultra-portable notebook. Lenovo has become one of the first to do so, offering two configurations of the new ThinkPad X120e: a $399 build with the E-240 APU, and a $579 build with the E-350 APU, 4GB of RAM and a roomy 320GB (7200RPM) hard drive. Both use an 11.6" display and ship with Windows 7...

“The Sony VAIO VPC-YB15KX/S is an 11-inch laptop that offers AMD's new Fusion CPU/GPU combo chipset and a new design. It's definitely an ultraportable, but it doesn't sacrifice performance as you get a dual-core CPU, 4GB of RAM and a roomy 500GB hard drive.”

Acer Aspire 5830T notebook
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 12:49A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s been a while since we met the last representative of the new, promising series of Acer notebooks - Timeline. The elegant lines, good performance and recognisable design were accompanied by excellent battery autonomy and a reasonable price, which made these models very attractive. This time around, it’s another “sinking” - Acer’s Aspire 5830T, from the new TimelineX generation. The recognisable ground aluminium lid with a silver Acer logo is present here as well. Besides the fact that pressure on the lid causes no display distortion, the aluminium surface also provides additional ruggedness and strength to the notebook. The sharp lines are usually indicative of business models, but Acer has used a small trick - all edges are rounded or mildly tilted against the surface they’re facing, which makes the new TimelineX models much more attractive to a wider number of customers…
