Power Spike. Dell offers updated components for the Alienware 13. Let us find out if the Core i7-5500U and the GeForce GTX 960M are worth the investment.

LG G4 First Impressions

LG G4 First Impressions

Say "Cheese!" LG has once and for all completely dedicated itself to photography with its new flagship. A higher resolution, bigger lenses, a higher luminosity, and an improved image stabilizer ... it almost lets us forget that the G4 is a superb smartphone - optionally in leather. It unfortunately also has some old weaknesses.

Dell Inspiron 13-7348 Convertible Review

79% Dell Inspiron 13-7348 Convertible Review

Update with a catch. Dell updated its 13.3-inch convertible with the latest technology. Besides the new Broadwell processor you still get a 360-degree hinge as well as a touchscreen. The most noticeable change, however, is the louder fan.
Intel Core i7-5500U | Intel HD Graphics 5500 | 13.3" | 1.7 kg
Face Off: Aorus X3 Plus vs. Gigabyte P34W vs. Razer Blade 14

Face Off: Aorus X3 Plus vs. Gigabyte P34W vs. Razer Blade 14

Small brawl with powerful punches. Don't let their small footprints fool you — these high-end 14-inch gaming notebooks carry big guns with more firepower than competitors almost twice the size. If you're in the market for an ultraportable powerhouse, the bottom line will almost certainly come down to one of these three.
Asus ZenFone 2 Smartphone Review

84% Asus ZenFone 2 Smartphone Review

4 GB of RAM! We all knew it was inevitable, but it's finally here -- the first major consumer smartphone with 4 GB dual-channel DDR3 RAM. Not only that, but it can also be had for just $300. Is this 5.5-inch monster enough to lure users away from popular Chinese brands like the OnePlus One?

Toshiba KIRAbook KIRA-10D (2015) Notebook Review

87% Toshiba KIRAbook KIRA-10D (2015) Notebook Review

Featherweight. The updated version of the Toshiba KIRA weighs 200 grams less without the touchscreen and is therefore one of the lightest 13.3-inch devices on the market. The new Broadwell hardware ensures sufficient performance and long battery runtimes, but is the high price justified?
Intel Core i7-5500U | Intel HD Graphics 5500 | 13.3" | 1.1 kg
HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

78% HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

Chromebook rival. Users who do not find the color of the Stream 13 appealing will at least find the inner values attractive. Its silent operation, long battery life, and low price make HP's laptop interesting. A one-year license for MS Office Personal is also included.

MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

86% MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

Gigantic with drawbacks. As expected from MSI's GT lineup, we meet uncompromising readiness to perform. The update of the GT70 is faster and in some cases even cheaper. However, the weaknesses found in the old tests, unfortunately, have not been eliminated.

81% Honor 4X Smartphone Review

Big meets affordable. Honor, Huawei's subsidiary, launches a device in the growing phablet sector with its new Honor 4X. The austerely designed casing contains a lot for approximately 200 Euros (~$220): LTE Cat4, a sufficiently fast octa-core SoC, dual-SIM functionality, and a bright IPS screen. A well-rounded package.

Let the games begin! Equipped with an Nvidia GeForce 940M, the ThinkPad T450s can cope with 3D applications and games - and that for a relatively low extra charge. Thanks to a 96 Wh battery capacity, record-breaking runtimes should be possible.
