MSI GE62 7RD Apache Laptop Review
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:16P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's GE62 7RD Apache is an entry-level gaming notebook powered by Intel's new Core i7-7700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 1050. It should provide budget-conscious buyers with a wallet-friendly option that's capable of playing today's games, albeit at reduced quality settings.

MSI GE72 7RE Apache Pro Laptop Review
     Fri, Feb 17 2017 | 12:15P | Notebooks | PermaLink

Dell XPS 13 2-In-1 Review: Portable And Flexible
     Wed, Feb 15 2017 | 11:27A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 13 2-In-1 is clearly a variant of the company's XPS 13 13-inch ultrabook product. It is still built with Dell’s beautiful 13.3-inch near-bezelless Infinity Edge display and premium carbon fiber construction, but Dell has made some interesting design decisions here that you might not have expected and the results may surprise you as well...

OLED-equipped ThinkPad X1 Yoga
     Mon, Feb 13 2017 | 8:54A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo sent over an OLED-equipped ThinkPad X1 Yoga a while back. I was mid-development on our client SSD test suite and had some upcoming travel. Given that the new suite’s result number crunching spreadsheet ends extends out to column FHY (4289 for those counting), I really needed a higher res screen and improved computer horsepower in a mobile package. I commandeered the X1 Yoga OLED for the trip and to say it grew on me quickly is an understatement. While I do tend to reserve my heavier duty computing tasks and crazy spreadsheets for desktop machines and 40” 4K displays, the compute power of the X1 Yoga proved itself quite reasonable for a mobile platform. Sure there is a built in pen that comes in handy when employing the Yoga’s flip over convertibility into tablet mode, but the real beauty of this particular laptop comes with its optional 2560x1440 14” OLED display.

     Sun, Feb 12 2017 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Elite X3 was a surprising and pleasant change from the Android boat on which I’ve been sailing for years. It’s more robust, productive and powerful that I expected and it is a great way to do more with less. In the end, it changed my workflow for the better and was a great way to keep my data with me - both on the device and in the OneDrive cloud...

Everything About Lenovo Phab2 Pro
     Wed, Feb 01 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google made an official announcement of its virtual reality platform, Daydream. Thanks to that Google’s Project Tango has quite become an echo about to fade. What’s more exciting? Something came up to the surface – the Lenovo Phab2 Pro. Lenovo seemingly found Google’s Tango as too brilliant a project to let it fritter away. So, Lenovo worked on a slightly-similar …

"While many of us out there want to build our own PCs there are quite a lot of people who don’t want the hassle and just want to buy something ready to go out of the box.
