Samsung Chromebook Review
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 4:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We took a look at the Samsung Chromebook, which is not, according to the manufacturer, neither a laptop or a tablet. What is it, then? Let's find out!

Alienware Unveils New Alienware 13 Gaming Notebook
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We got the chance to spend some time with the folks at Dell Alienware and check out the just-announced Alienware 13 and its companion external Graphics Amplifier just a few days ago. We brought a camera along to capture some of the action and have some video along with all of the notebook’s juicy details posted for all to see. In the video, we’ll give you a quick tour of the Alienware 13, the external Graphics Amplifier, and the Alien Adrenaline real-time performance monitoring utility, which can monitor everything from the notebook’s internal components to the graphics card plugged into the Graphics Amplifier enclosure...

Lenovo Y70 Touch Gaming Notebook Review
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 4:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past several years, Lenovo has been aggressively targeting PC gamers, who are known both for their willingness to drop serious cash on hardware and for their skepticism of mainstream brands. Lenovo inherited some of IBM’s corporate image when it took over the company’s laptop business, but winners like the Yoga line got Lenovo tons of exposure with mainstream consumers too. Along the way, the entertainment-friendly Y series of laptops became Lenovo’s gaming line: a suite of affordable systems that brought Lenovo’s understated design sense to bear in a market awash in garish colors, lights, and gimmicks. The Y70 Touch is Lenovo’s flagship mobile gaming PC, so we took it out for a spin...

Silverstone MS06 2.5? USB3 Enclosure with Docking Station Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 8:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Drive enclosures aren’t anything new and neither are hot-swap drive bays, but it is rare that we see the two combined in the way Silverstone has done with the MS06 2.5-inch USB 3.0 HDD/SSD enclosure with 3.5-inch hot-swap drive bay. Now that’s a really long name, so I’ll just refer to it as Silverstone MS06 from now on. It is great to have a drive in an ejectable enclosure so you can take it with you on the go, but it isn’t everyone that has the same docking system. In fact, it will most likely be difficult to find anyone among your friends who uses the same system. At least this is the case when we talk traditional hot-swap bays. To combat this issue, Silverstone created their MS06 enclosure on a pure USB 3 basis that in return allows for full compatibility with almost any system. When you leave your home, you just press the eject button, grab the drive and the included USB3 cable and you ready to head out on your adventures.

Asus TP300L Transformer Book Flip Review
     Mon, Dec 29 2014 | 12:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus TP300L Transformer Flip is a 13.3-inch thin and light laptop that doubles up as a Windows 8.1 touch screen tablet. This is a neat trick that hinges, ahem, around the hinge. Instead of simply allowing you to open the screen and fold it back to a comfortable viewing angle you can swing the screen through a full 360 degrees until it ends up on the underside of the keyboard.

MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro 15.6 inch Laptop Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 11:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have a very special review for our readers, a look at the world’s slimmest and lightest 15.6 inch Gaming Notebook. The MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro is currently available in 3 different flavours – one will ship with a 3K screen, another with Nvidia GTX860M discrete graphics. The model we are looking at today however is the most interesting. It ships with a Core i7 4700HQ CPU, a powerful Nvidia GTX870M GPU, 256GB Solid State Storage in ‘Super Raid’ and a more usable 1080p Anti-Glare eDP Wide View angle panel. MSI pack in 8GB of fast DDR3 memory and another 1TB of mechanical storage to sweeten the deal. At only £1,399 is this one of the most portable, but powerful gaming laptops money can buy?

"If you're looking for the best Android tablet money can buy, look no further than the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet. With a Tegra K1 processor and NVIDIA's constantly evolving SHIELD platform, which includes such great features like GameStream and Gamepad Mapper, there's a lot to love. In fact, the only tablets that truly surpass the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet are a few high-end tablets running Windows 8.1, but you're also talking about ones that are more than double the price.”

Origin EON17-S Gaming Laptop Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 9:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We check out one of Origin PC's beastly laptops, featuring a fully-unlocked Intel CPU, and an NVIDIA 880M. How well does it perform? Read on to find out."

Inateck MP1300 Macbook Air Laptop Bag.
     Fri, Dec 26 2014 | 12:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink

Many students find themselves shoving their Macbook Air into a backpack, but this could lead to scratches and other damage. You need to protect your small laptop in a good bag, like the Inateck MP1300 laptop bag.

ThinkPad Yoga
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 7:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The list of positives abounds, with expert construction quality and solidity (thanks in no small part to the Magnesium and Aluminum + Polyphenylene sulfide materials) leading the pack, followed by a clever transformative design (see: the Lift ‘n Lock keyboard innovation, which resolves one of our main complaints about previous Yoga designs and their exposure of the keyboard while folded into Tablet Mode). Speaking of keyboards, the ThinkPad Yoga’s is best-in-class, and in fact, it’s one of our favorite notebook keyboards ever. It also is one of the only devices on the market to include a touch panel which is not fully glossy (call it semi-matte)—something which will surely make many business professionals sit up and take notice."

The 15-Inch Tablet
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 5:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I've wanted to write this for some time, but hadn't because there was no solid data to back-up my assertions. I do now. This is about why I believe the future of tablets (and by extension, computing) is 15-inches in display size, perhaps even 17-inches.

Nvidia's Shield tablet
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 6:18A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's Shield tablet has the heart of a game console and the soul of an enthusiast PC. It's incredibly fast, too, and it might just be the most refined Android tablet around. Read on to see what makes the Shield different from all the other smaller slates on the market.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Update Hands-On
     Mon, Dec 22 2014 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA gave us early access to the Android Lollipop update and we’ve been poking around on it with our SHIELD Tablet since. Some of the changes are subtle, but others are more significant and definitely give the tablet a different look and feel over the original Android KitKat release. There’s more to Lollipop than just tweaks to the UI, however. Animations have been optimized, there’s a new notification area, new graphics APIs for advanced gaming, Android Runtime (ART) for better responsiveness, and several other improvements that should enhance battery life and security as well.
