06/26/2012, Dell surprised us at CES with the launch of its super-elegant and affordable Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook, which we selected in our Best of CES list. Read our XPS 13 review here. So today, we are very happy to see the rest of the family coming to the market, namely the XPS 14 and XPS 15 laptops. Both units are powered by a 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor (3M […]
06/17/2012, This detailed Retina Macbook Pro Review (15") goes over the strengths and weaknesses of Apple's latest high-end laptop and covers usage for both Max OS X and Windows.
05/31/2012, It has been about one year since Google released new Chromebooks, which are laptops running on Google’s Chrome OS, a Linux-based Operating system that revolves around one thing: the Chrome web browser. If you are unfamiliar with the concept, the idea is that every application that you run with Chrome OS is web-based (a website) and runs in the Chrome browser. Google fundamentally believes that this is a great alternative […]
05/31/2012, Today, Dell is refreshing its business computers lineup, namely the OptiPlex Series and the Latitude Series. The Dell Latitude E6430 ATG is a 14-inch rugged notebook powered by a third generation Intel processor (although Dell did not mention it, it is highly probable) and packed in a Tri-Metal armored casing that features an anodized aluminum display back, magnesium alloy wrapped corners, steel hinges, and a powder-coated base. As expected, the […]
05/10/2012, With the introduction of the Dell XPS 13, Dell manages to come up with an impressive, extremely compact 13” laptop that is just slightly bigger than the Macbook Air 11. Sold at around the same price than the latter, it clearly outperforms its Apple counterpart in terms of specification and would-be “switchers” may want to look twice at the value proposition of this laptop. For those who are worried that […]
02/24/2012, Sony has refreshed its Vaio S line of laptops, and the overall goal was to build a powerful computer that was also as portable as possible. It it most definitely a very hard goal, and it is fair to say that Sony took a very good shot at it. We have tried the Sony Vaio S in its 15” version, which we think is a great form factor for a […]
01/19/2012, The Acer Aspire S3 looks very nice in the product photos, and it is often associated with Ultrabooks because this type of design, which is inspired from the Macbook Air, has been used by many PC manufacturers in their recent designs. I like the new look very much, and I have been pretty bullish about Ultrabooks, at least much more than I ever was about Netbooks. Although Ultrabooks often share […]
01/08/2012, [CES 2012] Lenovo graces CES 2012 with a couple of notebooks from the IdeaPad range, where it intends to deliver high-performance processing power and graphical technology coupled with advanced multimedia features in order for it to boot up in a jiffy. The brushed metal cover and palm rest would certainly be pleasing to the eye, but I still don’t understand why notebook manufacturers cannot get the humble trackpad right, unlike […]
12/08/2011, With all the talk of ultrabooks making their way around the internet, you can’t be blamed if you decided that you might want one for yourself. If that’s the case, HP has entered into the ultrabook market with their first offering, the Folio 13 and the good news is that it’s now on sale, so if you were thinking about buying it for yourself or for a loved one as […]

11/21/2011, Interested in running Android on your computer? Well, short of buying FXI’s Cotton Candy, it seems that an open source project called Android-x86 is currently working on a means to get Android up and running on your laptop or PC. It seems that so far so good, as the developers behind the project have successfully managed to load up Android Honeycomb 3.2 on various netbooks and laptops.
11/16/2011, If you prefer the concept of a Bluetooth handset over a Bluetooth earpiece, Brando may have the solution for you with the Bluetooth Handset TK2, as pictured to the right above next to the iPhone. It basically acts and holds like a phone, which we’re guessing is a bit silly if you were to pair it with a phone.
11/14/2011, Apple has patented many inventions and innovations in the past, some practical and some bordering on something you would expect from a sci-fi novel, but a recent publishing of Apple’s patents for their MacBook series of laptops might suggest that these could actually come into fruition in the near future.
10/31/2011, A while back there has been some talk of Apple possibly creating an ultra-thin Mac notebook, which many seem to think that it will be inspired by the MacBook Air’s ultra-thin unibody design. No word on what sort of Mac notebook this will be, although a revised and redesigned MacBook Pro is definitely not out of the question. Now word has surfaced that this ultra-thin Mac notebook is getting closer […]
