Nokia Lumia 830 Smartphone Review
84% Nokia Lumia 830 Smartphone Review
Farewell Nokia. Microsoft promises customers an affordable flagship smartphone with the Lumia 830. However, the technical specs position the device in the mid-range. A small quad-core and a screen with a low HD resolution is simply not premium range. On the other hand, the build and choice of materials will satisfy the discerning. The biggest drawback is the price.

Desk culprit. Acer's affordable 17.3-inch laptop is designed for use on the desk at home. An AMD APU provides the needed computing power, it offers a high storage capacity, and the battery life does not come too short either.

83% Toshiba Satellite P50t-B-10T Notebook Review
Pixel machine. Outsider - trailblazer? While the competition is equipping their high-definition luxury-range with Nvidia GPUs, the Japanese manufacturer relies on AMD's Radeon R9. Will the combination of a 4K screen, fast computing cores, build, and ergonomics result in a round bundle that deserves our purchase recommendation?

Decent all around. The Inspiron 15 3542 is an inexpensive allrounder-notebook. Thanks to a powerful Core i5 processor and dedicated GeForce graphics card, even gaming is not out of the question. The battery life is very decent as well.

Fan-less. Yet another laptop wants to lure potential buyers with a low price and an outstanding performance, dubbed Lenovo G50-30. A Bay Trail Celeron paired with 2 GB of working memory is apt for office and Internet applications. Will the laptop surprise us in any of our tests?

69% Toshiba Satellite Click 2 L30W Convertible Review
Budgetary constraints. Detachable keyboard base? Check. IPS touchscreen, svelte metallic casing, Windows 8.1? Check, check, check. It all sounds enticing, but it’s what Toshiba had to cut that sends the Click 2 along an uphill battle.

Ironed and strengthened. Even slimmer and faster but just as sophisticated, enduring and elegant as its predecessor. The iPad Air 2 is surrounded by many superlatives and is really the fastest iPad so far. But there are also some smaller drawbacks, and iOS 8.1 is still not working perfectly.

71% Lenovo Horizon 2e-F0AS0014US AIO Review
Portable AIO. Lenovo's Horizon 2e is a 21.5-inch All-in-One (AIO) system. Thanks to an integrated battery, the "2-in-1 tabletop PC", as Lenovo calls it, is portable enough so it can be toted from room to room as well. What else does the jumbo-sized tablet bring to the table?

Alpha leader. Samsung only used plastic even for its premium line in the past. This is now different, and it launches its Galaxy Alpha smartphone with an aluminum bezel. The phone places a claim on the smartphone crown with its strong components, but that still belongs to its company brother - Galaxy S5.
