     Tue, Oct 11 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink

MSI GT62VR 6RE Dominator Pro 4K Gaming Laptop Review
     Thu, Sep 29 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI GT62VR 6RE Dominator Pro 4K has an absurdly long model name that gives us a fair amount of information about this impressive gaming laptop. The GT part tells us this is a chunky chassis that can dissipate a fair amount of heat, VR shows support for your Oculus Rift or HTC Vive and 4K is, obviously, the number of pixels in the screen.

     Fri, Sep 23 2016 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink

The Microsoft Wise Pad W7 hit the market recently, drawing a great deal of interest for offering a Windows 10 Mobile phablet at such a low cost. Check it out!

PCSpecialist Defiance III 17.3 Laptop Review
     Tue, Sep 20 2016 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at KitGuru we have already seen the monster that is the Asus ROG GX800VH – featuring dual GTX 1080s. However, with the price expected to be upwards of £5000, it is out of reach for most laptop gamers. That is where the PCSpecialist Defiance III comes in. It sports a Pascal GTX 1060 GPU, quad-core i7 processor and 16GB DDR4 memory, all in an attractive chassis. At £1349, it is still an investment, but do its features make the price worthwhile?

MSI GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro Review
     Mon, Sep 19 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we’ll be taking a detailed look at the new GE62VR 6RF Apache Pro. This gaming notebook arrives with some exciting hardware courtesy of a number of renowned vendors – including Intel’s Core i7-6700HQ, NVIDIA’s GTX 1060 and a Kingston M.2 SSD.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Review: The OLED Display Update
     Fri, Sep 16 2016 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo recently sent in a new ThinkPad X1 Yoga with an OLED (Organic LED) display with a native WQHD resolution of 2560X1440. This display is a significant upgrade for the machine, offering a dramatic improvement in image quality in terms of brightness, contrast, saturation, and color gamut coverage. As it turns out, it also offers a notable improvement in battery life as well. For roughly a $240 price premium over Lenovo's standard IPS display option in the ThinkPad X1 Yoga, the OLED upgrade is an impressive, satisfying gain in display image quality that we highly recommend. In fact, it upgraded our final evaluation of the machine to Editor's Choice level for the OLED display-equipped variant of this Lenovo laptop due to the improved battery life and experiential upgrades associated with the better quality of the OLED panel...

ASUS ROG G752VS (XB78K OC Edition) Laptop Review
     Thu, Sep 15 2016 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alert KitGuru readers may well feel the Asus ROG G752VS looks familiar as it uses the same chassis as the G752VT that KitGuru reviewed at the beginning of 2016. While Asus G752VS looks outwardly identical to G752VT, it has received an extensive list of upgrades to its internal components. It’s best not to get too bogged down in detail as there are different specifications and SKUs of G752VS, but the big news is that this new laptop sports GTX 1070 graphics with 8GB of GDDR5 memory.

ASUS ROG Strix GL502 Gaming Notebook Review
     Fri, Sep 09 2016 | 1:37P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has taken the GL502VT gaming notebook and made a number of key improvements despite the fact that it's only been out a few months. For starters the GeForce GTX-900 series graphics have been replaced by the newer GeForce GTX 10-series GPUs, you have an NVMe PCIe SSD instead of an M.2 SATA III SSD and the USB 3.1 Type C Gen 1 port has been updated to a Gen 2 USB 3.1 Type-C port. This means you have faster graphics, storage and USB interfaces in the latest GL5502VS gaming notebook!

Lenovo Y700-15ISK Gaming Notebook Review
     Tue, Aug 23 2016 | 3:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo Y700 that I am testing is the one is with the GTX 960M so we’ll see how good Lenovo gaming notebooks can be, starting with the Y700. The Y700-15ISK is a 15.6? display size version. The Lenovo Y700-17ISK is a 17.3? display size version. Both are full HD display variants. This is the 15-inch variant.

     Sun, Aug 21 2016 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink

The inevitable has finally happened: NVIDIA's Pascal architecture has made its way into gaming notebooks....and it is spectacular. In this review we take a GTX 1070-totting laptop out for a spin.

NVIDIA Mobile GeForce GTX 10-Series Review: Pascal Notebooks
     Sun, Aug 21 2016 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's new Pascal GPU architecture has been taking the PC graphics market by storm since its introduction in early May. The leading-edge semiconductor powerhouse, in addition to lighting up pixels, has been burning up its balance sheets as well, with strong sales of GeForce, Quadro and Tesla product lines driving record revenues and a brisk uptick in the company stock price. For NVIDIA's core gamer customer base, the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 kicked-off the Pascal party, followed by the introduction of the more mid-range GeForce GTX 1060, and then finally the monstrous NVIDIA Titan X. With the exception of the entry-level graphics segment (a slot in the product stack the company has yet to flesh out), it's been a clean sweep for Pascal-based GeForce cards with best of class bang for your buck and perf-per-watt metrics.

Alienware Alpha R2 Review: Big Screen
     Fri, Aug 19 2016 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As much as we like piecing together formidable desktop systems crammed full of high end hardware, the future of PC gaming for many mainstream users may lie in more compact setups. Certainly there's been a push to get PC players out of a dank basement and into the living room with Steam Machines and similar console-sized PCs. However, Dell's Alienware division is hoping to take things to the next level with its pint sized Alpha R2 system, an ultra small form factor (SFF) gaming desktop.

     Thu, Aug 18 2016 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CybertronPC is hoping to hit a sweet spot for gamers with its new 14-inch laptop, the CLX Osiris 14. The system is light and slim for a gaming laptop, but it packs an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M and Intel Skylake quad-core CPU under its hood, so this machine is clearly not messing around...
