Alienware 13 R3 With GeForce 10 And OLED Eats MacBook Pros For Lunch
     Tue, Nov 01 2016 | 2:13P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's Alienware division stepped up today with a new, compact and powerful weapon in its laptop arsenal with the announcement of the redesigned Alienware 13 notebook. Now, before you get all misty about the headline, we understand Apple's latest MacBook isn't optimized for gaming, but the comparison of what can be done in a 13-inch notebook frame can still be made. We're just having a little fun with it... It's built with some of the highest-end notebook components on the market currently, save for perhaps its GPU, which is more of a desktop-class graphics chip, actually. In addition, Alienware's delicious OLED display option returns in to machine with 400 nits of brightness, a QHD 2560X1440 resolution and gobs of saturation and pop.

     Thu, Oct 27 2016 | 2:27P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft unveiled its first all-in-one desktop system yesterday, known as the Surface Studio. The new Surface Studio is a premium, all-in-one PC that’s outfitted with an Intel processor, NVIDIA graphics, and hybrid storage system. It also has a super-thin, ultra-high resolution 28” / 125mm thin touch display that is optimized for color accuracy and wide viewing angles. The Surface Studio also includes a new Surface Dial that offers a new input method, and of course, Surface Pen input is supported too...

MSI GT83VR 6RF-028UK GTX 1080 SLI Laptop Review
     Thu, Oct 20 2016 | 11:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ‘Titan’ moniker is iconic in the world of technology – Nvidia have used it to great effect for many years now and after MSI released their first Titan laptop back in 2014, the name has become synonymous with cutting edge hardware. My colleague Leo has already taken a look at the GT83VR 6RF for the KitGuru TV channel, but today I analyse it in more detail for the main site. This laptop features a massive 18.4 FHD inch panel, 64GB of DDR4 memory, full mechanical keyboard, Core i7 6920HQ and dual Nvidia GTX 1080’s running in SLi.

Early Hands-On With The ASUS ZenBook 3
     Mon, Oct 17 2016 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We're capping off our Zenvolution coverage today with an overview of the ZenBook 3 and the ZenWatch 3. We were able to go "hands-on" with both devices and they're pretty impressive pieces of hardware. The ZenBook 3 is now decked out with Intel’s latest Kaby Lake processors; in this case, the Core i7-7500U and i5-7200U. Weighing in at just 2 pounds with a thin 11.9mm profile, this is ASUS’s thinnest ZenBook to date...

Asus ZenBook 3 Review: An Intel Kaby Lake-Powered Ultrabook
     Sun, Oct 16 2016 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although they were initially announced all the way back at Computex, ASUS held a casual event in NYC this past Wednesday (Oct. 5) to officially launch an array of new products, including the ZenBook 3, ZenWatch 3, ZenPhone 3, and Transformer Pro 3 and Mini. We’ve got some initial coverage of all of those products here at HotHardware if you’d like some additional background on the full line-up, including hands-on video of the latest ZenBook and smartwatch. However, we couldn’t wait to dive in a little deeper with the ZenBook 3 for a couple of reasons. First off, the ZenBook 3 is the first Ultrabook to hit the lab built around Intel’s brand-new Kaby Lake-based 7th Generation Core series processors. If you’re unfamiliar with Kaby Lake, it is the follow-up product to last year’s Skylake, and features improved responsiveness, a beefed up multimedia engine, and it's built with a refined 14nm process that improves clocks and overall power efficiency.

MSI GS43VR Phantom Pro Gaming Laptop Review
     Fri, Oct 14 2016 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GS43VR 6RE Phantom Pro is a compact a 14-inch gaming laptop powered by a GeForce GTX 1060 GPU. This is Nvidia’s latest upper mid-range discrete graphics chip that succeeds and should significantly outperform the aging GTX 970M, narrowly beating the GTX 980M too at a lower power cost and with a less beefy cooling solution.

Gigabyte P57X v6 GTX 1070 Gaming Laptop Review
     Fri, Oct 14 2016 | 10:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte has established themselves as one of the pioneers in the gaming laptop sector and released a fantastic repertoire of successful products. Of course, there’s fierce competition from the likes of MSI, ASUS and other key players which make it essential to try and hone the best possible package. So far, I’ve been impressed with Gigabyte’s offerings and believe they’ve taken the feedback on board to formulate a plethora of premium designs. In particular, the Aero 14 was a huge step forward in the right direction and the best ultrabook I’ve encountered which can run modern games relatively efficiently.

WaterField Designs Announces Maxwell MacBook Pro Sleeve
     Fri, Oct 14 2016 | 10:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The Maxwell laptop sleeve epitomizes WaterField’s modern approach to design with its clean lines and streamlined look. Locally-manufactured LUNA® textiles on the case’s exterior combine with an acrylic backing, a layer of ballistic nylon, and shock-absorbing neoprene internal padding. These boldly-colored textiles — in Kelly green, Crimson red, Cobalt blue or Slate black — are treated with patented Nano-Tex® coating for extreme water- and stain-resistance. WaterField also offers a rugged black ballistic or tan waxed canvas exterior with similar internal padding. A side-to-side magnetic closure opens smoothly and silently for easy access, and a swath of premium, full-grain leather at the bottom of the Maxwell Sleeve serves as an easy-grip area for removing the laptop. An optional shoulder strap converts the Maxwell into a minimalist laptop shoulder bag.

The Maxwell joins the WaterField SleeveCase, Dash Sleeve and Suede Jacket as part of WaterField’s Apple laptop sleeve lineup.

The Maxwell Laptop Sleeve Early Bird Pricing through October 27: Ballistic nylon: $79. Waxed Canvas: $89. LUNA® colors: $99. Optional strap: $22. (MSRP: Prices go up $20 each on October 28.)

Black, full-grain leather swath at the bottom for easy gripping and a side-to-side magnetic closure. (Tan waxed canvas Maxwell comes with grizzly brown leather instead of black.)

Dimensions and weight: 16 x 12~12.5 x 5.25 inches. 3.2 lbs.


MSI GT83VR Gaming-Notebook Review

Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GT83VR Gaming-Notebook arrived Technic3D. "Inspired by ultimate weapon in Sci-Fi scenarios and the previous GT80, the design should give it a fluid look with feeling of light speed. The engineers refine every detailed component and enhance the mechanical materials while staying true to its extreme performance. The GT83 Titan SLI is no doubt the world's most powerful 18.4” SLI gaming notebook in the mobile market?" Technic3D will see the complete functions and Benchmarks in the following Review from the Gaming Monster."

Lenovo Yoga Book Review
     Thu, Oct 13 2016 | 3:38P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Yoga Book is one of the most attractive pieces of hardware I've used this year. Lenovo is aiming for the best of both worlds: a compact tablet that's easy to hold and transport; and an on-the-go laptop that isn't hindered by an awkward dock. But going from concept to actual product, how well does it work?

MSI GT83VR 6RF Titan SLI GTX 1080 Laptop Review
     Thu, Oct 13 2016 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From the moment Nvidia announced its new GTX 10-series graphics chips we only had one question ‘When will we see the new MSI Titan?’. Well, the answer is ‘now’. The previous GT80S 6QF Titan was a gaming monster that packed dual GTX 980 GPUs in SLI along with a Core i7, a mechanical keyboard and a huge 18.4-inch screen. The price was also huge at £3,999, but damn it was an amazing experience. Titan set a new benchmark for, well, everything.

Lenovo ThinkPad X260 Review: A Sleek
     Wed, Oct 12 2016 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo has done a remarkable job of classing up its business notebooks without sacrificing the features and build-quality that make the ThinkPad line so popular with road warriors. It recently updated its ThinkPad X1 Yoga with an excellent 2560x1440 OLED panel, for example, making it even more attractive to executives. But the company hasn’t forgotten users who dig more utililitarian builds, and don't need the latest bells and whistles. The ThinkPad X260 is all about functionality, portability, and quality. It is a no-nonsense road warrior. At about $765, the ThinkPad X260 has the lowest starting price of any laptop in Lenovo’s ThinkPad X ultrabook series...

Acer's Chromebook R11 gets thoroughly tested. If you're on a budget and don't mind adjusting to Google's Chrome OS, it could be worth a shot."
