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.”

Dell Streak 7 Android Tablet Review
     Tue, Feb 22 2011 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first half of 2011 is shaping up to be all about tablets. Truly, the tablet mania that everyone was so adamant about last year is finally here. While dozens of tablets were announced and shown off at CES in January, most of them won't be arriving until later this month or the March time frame at the earliest. The main reason for the delay is because most manufacturers are stuck waiting for Google to release Android 3.0, or Honeycomb, the first version of Android to be configured specifically for use on tablets. Motorola has the honor of releasing the first Honeycomb device, the Xoom. Of the tablets announced at this year's CES though, one of the first to be released is Dell's new Streak 7 and it's powered by NVIDIA's potent Tegra 2 low power, integrated SoC.

Part of Dell's Streak family, the Streak 7 was able to beat most of the tablets seen at CES to market, because Dell has made the decision to launch it with Android 2.2, also known as Froyo. In any case, Honeycomb or not, the Streak 7 is here and it's a shiny seven inch slab of tablet goodness with an impressive résumé. We've had one in the HotHardware labs for a week and we've written up a full analysis of this bad boy, so read on for all the gory details.

Dell Inspiron Duo Hybrid Tablet / Netbook Review
     Tue, Feb 22 2011 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Inspiron Duo is an impressive sight. It's not often that we're this enamored by a device's physical design, but the Dell Inspiron Duo simply does it for us. The machine is a feat of engineering, and it really redefines the convertible laptop segment. This 10.1" machine is part netbook, part tablet, but unlike many rivals, it doesn't compromise much in terms or portability and form factor to be both. When you open up the package, it looks like a Mini 10 or any other 10" netbook. But once the lid is open, a simple press on the LCD allows it to swivel around and lock into place, in reverse. Close the lid back down atop the keyboard, and you're now looking at a tablet...

Viewsonic Viewpad 7
     Tue, Feb 22 2011 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“There's no shortage of Android tablets these days, and most of the options available are almost completely indistinguishable. Viewsonic, however, has made smart moves in trying to set itself apart from that cadre of me-too products with the Viewsonic Viewpad 7. The Viewpad 7 is a 7-inch Android tablet with a wider-than-typical assortment of features including voice calling, dual cameras, stereo speakers, and full access to the Android Market.”

ViewSonic gTablet Review, Begging To Be Rooted
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few manufacturers have forged on and released 10-inch Android tablets regardless of Google's hamstringing of it, by limiting Android Marketplace functionality on any device larger than 7 inches. It's a hard line to walk without Google's blessing until Honeycomb is released but ViewSonic has stepped out with their 10-inch gTablet and we've spent some quality time with it. The gTablet is driven by NVIDIA's Tegra 2 processor, comes equipped with 512MB of RAM, 16GB of Flash storage and a myriad of expansion options.

MSI GT680 Sandy Bridge Gaming Laptop Review
     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When MSI unveiled the new GT680R gaming laptop at CES this year, the company touted it as one of the "fastest, most powerful gaming notebooks in the world." As one of the first laptops to take advantage of Intel's Sandy Bridge processor, this laptop definitely packs plenty of power. Under the hood, you'll find NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M graphics with 1.5GB of video memory, 8GB of DDR3 system memory, and two 500GB 7,200rpm hard drives...

Casio Exilim EX-H20G
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“So you took tons of photos on your vacation, but you can't remember exactly where you were when you snapped each picture. Plenty of cameras can geotag your photos with location information, but a handheld GPS radio requires an unobstructed view of the sky to get a GPS signal. If you're shooting photos indoors, you're probably out of luck. Unless you're shooting with the 14.1-megapixel Exilim EX-H20G.”

Alienware M17X10 gaming notebook
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This portable PC may not be all that portable - if you have a look at the charts, you’ll see that the monster we’re reviewing this time around weighs in at over five kilograms! This makes it clear from the ground up that we’re talking about a desktop replacement notebook, aimed at gamers. The desktop replacement category is intended for users that require portability from their PCs, whether it’s work at several places, data availability or simply gaming around, but don’t care much about the large size and weight that are a consequence of a strong system build or specific needs. For example, a notebook we’ve recently reviewed, ASUS’ NX90JQ with an 18” display, is about as portable as the old Sony TVs with Trinitron cathode tubes, but they still belong to the notebook category. Dell’s managed to make its Alienware brand synonymous with the best money can buy in the gaming department in recent years, and garnered quite a following among hardcore gamers that way. Well, after years of staring at their models at various fairs, we’ve finally had the chance to test one out for ourselves. The model that we’ve received is a 17” model, bearing the name M17X10…

Panasonic Toughbook CF-C1
     Sun, Feb 13 2011 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“If your working scenario requires a dedicated tablet the lure of Apple’s iPad is great and becoming greater as time goes on—as long as you’re not tied to Windows. Convertible tablet PCs suit those who need a physical keyboard and tablet features, but the trade-off is weight, bulk and less convenience when using a laptop in tablet mode. In the case of the Panasonic ToughBook CF-C1, the price reflects the semi-rugged features rather than the specifications, and may feel to some rather steep. Convertible tablet manufacturers need to keep at least half an eye on the tablet world going forward, and Panasonic needs to consider reducing its unit costs.”

Lenovo's exciting IdeaPad U1
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This afternoon's preview show event at CES2010 was deluged with journalists surging from one overcrowded display to another. One of the hottest tables was where Lenovo was showing a sample of its IdeaPad U1, an Intel driven Windows 7 mini-laptop with nicely curved corners whose screen detaches effortlessly into an Android-based iPad look-alike. Full details will be released tomorrow, and company reps could only provide pricing in China, where it is set at 3500CNY (US$530) for the tablet alone, and ~8000CNY(US$1200) for the combo. An earlier version was shown at CES 2010, with the tablet running Linux when undocked. The new version looks slick, fully functional, and could be a real crowd pleaser for those who want both a tablet and a notebook.

Maingear 13.3" Clutch 13 Ultraportable Notebook Review
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Maingear is a custom PC builder that's been making some noise lately, and for good reason. The competition is intense in this space, with a number of companies (CyberPower, Maingear, Falcon Northwest, Digital Storm, Origin, etc.) elbowing each other in order to grab the hard-earned dollars of those in need of a new machine. Maingear, like the others mentioned here, has done an excellent job staying on the cutting edge, and making sure that their lineup is full of new components just as soon as they hit the market.

Back in October, Maingear revealed two notebooks in a new series: Clutch. Today, we're taking a closer look at the smaller of the two, the 13.3" Clutch 13...

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.
