iconBIT NetTAB THOR QUAD FHD NT-1005T Tablet Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 11:08A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thor Quad FHD tablet from iconBIT is quite balanced, featuring a Rockchip RK3188 Quad Core CPU at 1.6GHz, Mali MP-400 MP4 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of NAND Flash. Of course, we also have a microSDHC card slot for expanding the storage (supports up to 32GB cards). Besides those mentioned, it is also notable the inclusion of the 5MP camera with flash on the back, which provides better quality shots compared to lower specced models."

ASUS Transformer Book T100TA Windows
     Thu, Oct 31 2013 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back we gave you a first-hand look at the performance of Intel's new low power Bay Trail Atom System-On-A-Chip for tablets and hybrid devices. Bay Trail, the follow-on to Intel's Clover Trail Atom design, comes in both dual and quad-core variants and offers better overall performance-per-watt than the previous generation and a significantly most robust graphics engine. At the time, we only got our hands on a few prototype devices and Intel was still tuning drivers getting the solution ready for prime time. This week, however, the Windows 8.1 and Intel Bay Trail onslaught begins as both Microsoft, with its Surface line-up, and various OEMs release their products to market comfortably ahead of the holiday shopping season. Today we're giving you a quick preview look at the first Bay Trail and full Windows 8.1 tablet to hit our test bench; it's another Transformer from ASUS, the ASUS Transformer Book T100TA.

Hands-On Preview: Microsoft Surface 2 Windows
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 12:54P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft's Surface 2 became available for purchase at retail earlier this week and we've had an eval unit in-hand for testing since the day before launch. Powered by NVIDIA's new quad-core Tegra 4 SoC, and driven by Windows 8.1 RT, the Surface 2 offers stiff competition to the recently announced iPad Air. From a total package perspective, Microsoft throws in a 200GB of SkyDrive cloud storage, free Skype landline calling for 2 years and 1 year of all you can eat Skype WiFi at available hot spots. We are feverishly working on our full evaluation of the Microsoft Surface 2 but felt it might be nice to offer you a taste and a tease of the device, here with our hands-on video review, some high res beauty shots, camera samples and of course a few benchmark numbers...

Ubuntu Linux Gaming Performance Mostly On Par With Windows 8.1
     Sun, Oct 27 2013 | 1:07P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the recent release of Microsoft Windows 8.1, at Phoronix we took 13 different AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards and compared the performance between Ubuntu Linux and Windows 8.1 with the same hardware and set of OpenGL games/benchmarks. For AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards with their official drivers, the performance is largely similar between the competing desktop operating systems but there are some performance exceptions."

Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's really no arguing the fact that Microsoft slipped with its first generation Surface strategy, but rather than wave the white flag, the Redmond outfit picked itself up, dusted off its britches and listened to user feedback. Today, in New York, Microsoft held a press event unveiling its new Surface 2 products and the usual superlatives apply -- thinner, lighter, faster, better. Microsoft says that Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro both benefit from "significant updates." Among them are improvements to processing power, better battery life, display and camera resolution upgrades, and a niftier Kickstand that now sports dual angles, making it more comfortable to use on your lap or desk. We were on hand at Microsoft's unveiling in New York to see its new slates in action...

Microsoft Surface Pro 2 Plays 6K RAW Video Footage
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft's Corporate VP of Surface, Panos Panay had his work cut out for him at the company's Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 launch event on Monday. Microsoft needed compelling product demos to showcase their new hardware against the current backdrop of stiff competition of alternative platforms and products from Google and Apple. So, obviously the first thing they did was call upon their old friend Intel way back at the design stage, empowering their Surface Pro 2 slate with a dual-core Haswell 4th generation Core i5-4200U processor. And with Intel's latest HD 4400 series graphics engine on board the Core i5-4200U at their disposal, Microsoft was looking for ways to showcase Surface Pro 2's multimedia performance, so they then called upon some of their friends at RED Camera... As Panos notes, 6K RAW footage offers nine times the resolution of standard 1080p HD video. Now, we know Intel's Haswell HD Graphics core already supported 4K HD video playback but could it handle 6K video?

Samsung 5-Series NP540U3C-A01 13.3-inch Ultrabook Notebook Review
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 2:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung's 5-Series NP540U3C-A01 Ultrabook is the first laptop to cross PCSTATS test bench with Windows 8 installed and a touch screen. Our first impressions of the new interface are positive - poking at the screen with ones fingers easily compliments the keyboard and touchpad to really bring out the best in Microsoft Windows 8 and crack open a whole new world of applications.
The touch screen interface is intuitive to learn, landing Samsung's NP540U3C-A01 ultrabook functionally somewhere between a sup'ed-up tablet and laptop. After a few minutes using the Samsung NP540U3C-A01 Ultrabook to surf around some websites we began to draw comparisons between it and the Apple iPad. Both touch screen interfaces work essentially the same way, but there are some real differences too.

HTC One Mini Review: Downsizing the best Android phone
     Tue, Oct 15 2013 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On paper, the naming of the HTC One mini makes perfect sense. The mini is a mid-to-high-end aluminum-clad smartphone with a 4.3-inch display, designed for those who want a premium device without the massive size that’s often associated with its bigger and faster brother, as well as other Android 'superphones'. But will HTC’s tradeoffs have too much of an effect on the overall product, keeping it from being a great 4.3-inch device? Or will the price be just right for what you’re getting out of the box?

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.
