HP Stream 13-c102ng Notebook Review

78% HP Stream 13-c102ng Notebook Review

Colorful. Once again, the second generation of HP's new Stream 13 stands out from the masses with its colors. It is a kind of Windows alternative to inexpensive Chromebooks. The very solid overall concept is, however, affected by some minor flaws.

Gigabyte P35X v5 Notebook Review

84% Gigabyte P35X v5 Notebook Review

This looks familiar… Gigabyte hasn’t wasted any time reworking their P35X, now suffixed with “v5” so as to indicate that this is merely an iterative update. Given that, can the conservative revisions to the $2,300 P35X v5 preserve its relevance in the gaming market?

Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C-106 Notebook Review

84% Toshiba Satellite Radius 12 P20W-C-106 Notebook Review

Little jack-of-all-trades. Toshiba's new Satellite Radius 12 can be used as both a tablet and a laptop. High-performance hardware meets high-quality casing materials, and a 4K screen rounds off the bundle. However, we would have expected more in some aspects in view of the high price.

XCOM 2 Notebook Benchmarks

77% Acer Aspire ES1-731-P4A6 Notebook Review

Braswell Office. With the Acer Aspire ES1-731 you will get a simple 17.3-inch office notebook. It works quietly, requires little energy and delivers a decent keyboard.

Acer Predator 17 G9-791 Notebook Review

85% Acer Predator 17 G9-791 Notebook Review

The hunt continues. The Predator 17 is the second device from Acer's new gaming series. Despite the bulky chassis, the cooling solution cannot completely convince us.

LG V10 Smartphone Review

87% LG V10 Smartphone Review

Technical twin. The configuration of LG's V10 reminds us strongly of the G4. The South Korean company has equipped the handset with a second screen and an additional front-facing lens. Discover whether the surcharge is justified in this report.

88% Dell XPS 15 9550 (Core i7, FHD) Notebook Review

Finally on its feet. After a series of software issues, we decided to check up once again on a different SKU of the XPS 15 to see if those problematic areas have been patched up. The results are outstanding.

Lenovo U31-70 80M5003EGE Notebook Review

81% Lenovo U31-70 80M5003EGE Notebook Review

Lack of endurance. Lenovo's 13.3-inch subnotebook attracts with its good connectivity. However, the battery life is, unfortunately, just middling.

Google Pixel C Tablet Review

89% Google Pixel C Tablet Review

Notebook ambitions. Powerful SoC, good display, a brand-new Android 6.0 and even an optional keyboard: The 10.2-inch Google Pixel C wants to compete with high-end tablets and it can actually leave a very good impression in our review.

Acer Aspire ES1-521-87DN Notebook Review

77% Acer Aspire ES1-521-87DN Notebook Review

Overpriced. The Aspire cannot boast with exceedingly high computing power. Then again, it pleases with a very low operating noise and decent keyboard. However, Acer demands the ridiculous price of 500 Euros (~$557) for the laptop.

ZTE Blade A452 Smartphone Review

80% ZTE Blade A452 Smartphone Review

Big battery. While focus is placed on a thin-as-possible line in many other smartphones, ZTE's Blade A456 sacrifices that for a relatively generously sized 4000 mAh battery. Our report reveals whether that also ensures a long battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD Notebook Review

75% Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD Notebook Review

Low-cost Core i3. Laptops from the low-cost sector are mostly equipped with Braswell processors or AMD APUs nowadays. Neither of these is the strongest of their kind. Lenovo has taken a different approach and installed a Core i3 processor from the Broadwell generation in its IdeaPad.

Acer Aspire R13 R7-372T Convertible Review

86% Acer Aspire R13 R7-372T Convertible Review

Now with Thunderbolt 3. The Aspire R13's main distinguishing factor is the quad-hinge design, which allows for several different display positions and hence operating modes. Even sans those hinges, the Aspire would still appeal, as it does well in almost all categories. Along with an update to the Skylake-generation of processors, the new model now also contains a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Notebook Benchmarks

Rise of the Tomb Raider Notebook Benchmarks

Precision landing. After several rather poor PC ports (Batman Arkham Knight, Just Cause 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, etc.), the latest iteration of Tomb Raider finally leaves a better impression on the PC. We tested the action title on multiple notebook GPUs and checked the performance. Update: GT630M, HD 4000, M385X, Iris Pro 5200, 920M, M280X, Kaveri R7 added.
Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

83% Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

Skylake all-rounder. The popular UX501 series gets Skylake, DDR4, USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 2.0, and a few other minor changes. Is this a vast improvement over last year's Haswell model?

Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

74% Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

Badly designed. Even though it might not be the fault of the processor manufacturer, AMD-based notebooks do not have the best reputation. The reviewed model of the new Lenovo Y700 confirms this statement. The alleged gaming notebook is hardly suitable for gaming, although the performance should be sufficient in theory.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 20FD001XGE Convertible Review

86% Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 20FD001XGE Convertible Review

Predetermined breaking point. Does the Yoga 260 follow in the footsteps of the ThinkPad X250? Is it the better ThinkPad subnotebook thanks to its various modes? Lenovo provides reasons for criticism. This is surprising and unexpected in view of the otherwise apparently 100% well-conceived ThinkPad.

Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation Review

88% Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation Review

Also a success with 15 inches? Following our review of the ThinkPad P70, we have a look at the smaller ThinkPad P50 from Lenovo. The two devices are very similar in many respects, but there are also important differences. Those include the display as well as the more complex maintenance, but also the longer battery runtimes. Our review unit also has a problem with the Turbo Boost most of the time.

Lenovo G70-80 80FF00H0GE Notebook Review

76% Lenovo G70-80 80FF00H0GE Notebook Review

Desk worker. Lenovo's G70-80 is an inexpensive office device for your desk. The notebook does not set any performance records, but it is sufficient in practice. There are no major complaints for a price of 400 Euros (~$435).

HP Spectre x2 12-a003ng (K3D42EA) Notebook Review

84% HP Spectre x2 12-a003ng (K3D42EA) Notebook Review

All-in-one PC? We are not talking about a heavy laptop here, but rather an 850 gram (~1.9 lb) tablet that aims to emulate a full-sized PC with its fold-out stand and sleeve keyboard. Two Type C ports herald the start of the new generation of cabling. But just how can a flat-screen be connected?

84% Gigabyte P34W v5 Xotic PC Edition Notebook Review

Fifth time's the charm. The latest 14-inch refresh comes new with Skylake, DDR4, HDMI 2.0, USB Type-C, and a WQHD display option. Are these updates major enough to get users over the fence?

84% HP EliteBook 745 G3 (FHD) Notebook Review

Right down to business. Just last week, we evaluated HP’s new 745 G3 update with WQHD IPS screen and Windows 7 preinstalled. Today’s configuration features a lower-end 1080p panel, but it’s also correspondingly more affordable. How does it hold up against the bevy of available business choices?

88% Dell Precision 7710 Workstation Review

High performer. Dell has recently completely revised its big mobile 17-inch workstation, which brings many innovations in the new model year. Apart from a new chassis, especially new interfaces, processors, graphics chips, and displays offer a significantly added value. We have tested in detail how the Dell Precision 7710 actually performs.

89% Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Smartphone Review

Hello, Lumia! The new Windows flagship is finally here. Besides powerful components, you also get great features like Windows Hello and Continuum. The biggest drawback of the device is the software, because Windows 10 Mobile does not seem to be quite ready yet.

Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 700 Convertible Review

87% Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 700 Convertible Review

The superior Surface Pro? With its IdeaPad Miix 700, Lenovo aims to win potential Surface Pro 4 buyers. A keyboard dock and ActivePen are included and do not have to be purchased separately. The other equipment is also appropriate: A bright, high-contrast screen and fast SSD are on board. The installed Core M processor ensures noiseless operation. The entire bundle is even cheaper than a comparable Surface Pro 4 package.

89% Xotic PC Asus G752VY Notebook Review

Vapor cooler. After recently checking out the "entry-level" configuration with the G752VT, it's now time to move up to the G752VY with Asus' vaunted vapor cooling solution. Is this really a revolution for notebooks or just another empty marketing term?

88% Sony Xperia Z5 Premium Smartphone Review

Mirror, mirror in my hand. Sony's new Xperia Z5 Premium flagship not only shines with high-performance technology and an exceptionally high-resolution ultra HD panel, its back can double as a mirror. Our report elucidates how well the Premium smartphone fares against the smaller Xperia Z5 and established competition.

86% MIFcom EG7 (Clevo N170RF) Notebook Review

Performance boost. TThe GeForce GTX 965M, which thus far has rarely been the graphics processor of choice for laptop manufacturers, has received a new breath of life. Nvidia's update has significantly increased the GPU's maximum clock rate. But how significant is the difference in performance compared to the 2015 version? Our question exactly. We used the MIFcom EG7 to uncover the answer.

MSI WT72-6QME Workstation Review

87% MSI WT72-6QME Workstation Review

Behemoth for Professionals. MSI’s WT72 now sports updated hardware in the form of a Skylake Xeon processor and a more powerful Nvidia Quadro GPU. The other specs remain largely the same and the workstation thus remains a solid choice for CAD work and 3D modelling.

Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

89% Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

The return of the 17-inch workstation. Lenovo now offers a 17-inch workstation for the first time in almost five years. Contrary to the current trend, however, you do not just get a consumer device with professional components. Was it worth the wait?

HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

85% HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

Forget cheap. A high-end laptop based on AMD hardware - we have not seen that for quite some time. HP dares this experiment, and installs the fastest Carrizo APU alongside an SSD and a WQHD IPS panel in its EliteBook 745 G3. But just how well can the 1300 Euro (~$1404) machine stand up to the Intel competition?

87% Schenker W706 (Clevo P771DM) Workstation Review

Powerhouse. Schenker's mobile workstation models traditionally signify high performance for a fair price. In particular the big 17-inch W706 leaves little to be desired in terms of performance. We have extensively tested how the recently refreshed powerhouse performs in practice.

Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

86% Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

Small rocket. Serious gaming devices with a 14-inch screen are rare; the majority of gamers prefers a larger screen instead of a higher mobility. At least the compact dimensions do not prevent extreme performance, which is proven by Schenker's new device. Chassis and input devices are great. So the only thing we have to find out is whether the display, sound and emissions can meet the high expectations as well.

MSI GS40 6QE Phantom Notebook Review

83% MSI GS40 6QE Phantom Notebook Review

Hot performance dwarf. Skylake quad-core, GTX 970M and a decent 14-inch display: MSI’s device in the pretty narrow segment of ultra-mobile gaming notebooks can meet all the performance expectations. So much performance does, however, require some compromises in other areas.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M 2016 Refresh (N16E-GR) Review

Nvidia listened to what customers want and published a faster GTX 965M based on the smaller GM206 chip. Although the number of shaders remained the same, the clock rates and the performance increased.

Old dog, new tricks. The latest Z30t from Toshiba is yet again nearly identical to its brethren from two years ago, though this time, it’s sporting a Broadwell chipset and a 1080p touchscreen with antiglare filter. Are these changes enough to keep pace with its fierce competition in the business space?

Curvy, not skinny. A Snapdragon 410 SoC processor and 2 GB of working memory are under the hood of the ZenFone 2 Laser (ZE500KL), hidden beneath a 5-inch HD panel. It runs with Android 5.0. Overall, we can expect a solid total package.

Toshiba Satellite Radius 14 Convertible Review

78% Toshiba Satellite Radius 14 Convertible Review

Retro-Radius. Toshiba sees a market for affordable 14-inch convertibles and positions its new Radius 14 lineup in the gap. We quite liked the flexible device for its casing and input devices, despite restrictions such as the TN screen or conventional hard drive in the test.

Family Fire. A thick protective cover, two-year worry-free warranty and a one-year subscription to "Amazon FreeTime Unlimited" is to make Amazon's cheapest Fire tablet suitable for children 3+ years with the Kids Edition.

84% Fujitsu Stylistic Q665 Tablet Review

Business tablet. The Stylistic Q665 is primarily aimed at companies. Its configuration and the available accessories are tailored for this group of customers. It will not really be interesting for most private users in view of its high price level (1200 to 1300 Euros, ~$1298 to ~$1406).

GPU downgrade.Dell's 17.3-inch all-rounder comes with a Skylake processor and matte Full HD screen. A Radeon graphics card is also on board. However, Dell has opted for a rather weak model that does not quite fit with the concept of an 800-Euro (~$872) all-rounder.

88% Google Nexus 6P Smartphone Review

Heavy Metal. Google's latest Nexus flagship 6P follows in the footsteps of the old Nexus 6 with its 5.7-inch display and the fastest SoC you can currently get from Qualcomm. However, there is now another rival from Google itself, the Nexus 5X, and it is even 120 Euros (~$131) cheaper. Is the more expensive smartphone worth the money and how does the top model hold up against other competitors?

Not without flaws. With the Aspire R14, Acer has a slim 14-inch convertible with a 360-degree rotatable display in its lineup. However, it is not a bargain at a demanded price of a good 1100 Euros (~$1195). The laptop has some shortcomings despite its high price.

Bring in the water! While water-cooled desktop systems are not uncommon, most notebook models are exclusively cooled by air. Asus still takes this step and presents the GX700, a combination of high-end laptop and external water-cooling. As one of the first editorial offices, we had the chance to take a closer look at the overall package.

80% Acer Aspire V3-372 Subnotebook Review

Small, black and quiet. It has to be known that Acer's new subnotebook has a fan since it is hardly audible. Anyone who believes that subnotebooks cannot produce a useful sound will have to rethink that idea, just like those who were surely set on a good keyboard in an 800-Euro (~$868) laptop. Our test reveals just how deep the water runs.

XPS 15 for pros. Dell's mobile Precision 5510 workstation, an offshoot of the XPS 15, is to primarily satisfy the needs of the professional users. The main difference is therefore Nvidia's Quadro M1000M that shows its strengths, particularly in engineering software and certified applications. We have examined just how well the Precision 5510 really suits professional users.

Bug fixes, workarounds and BIOS updates: Dell's XPS 15 does not have a good start. How is the bigger i7/UHD version handling the drawbacks that we experienced with the i5/FHD model? One reader speaks about a “completely different notebook.” Do we share this opinion? Are we even inspired in the end? Update 12/23/2015: Recall BIOS 1.1.14!

A balanced bundle. With the Pavilion 15-ak003ng, HP offers a well-equipped multimedia notebook in 15.6-inch format. Among other things, there is a quad-core processor, an IPS display and an SSD on board. However, it slightly tarnishes the good overall impression that the warranty is only one year.

Value for money. The Envy 13 from HP is a fresh candidate for the subnotebook crown. We can say this upfront: It cannot quite keep up with the current leaders like the Dell XPS 13 and Apple MacBook in respect to the performance. But it does not have to – because our review unit convinces in another section: It is rare that you get a 13-inch system with so many pixels for the money.

On the other hand, the multimedia aspects are pretty successful; the sound system in particular left a very good impression. The biggest issue is the very hot chassis temperatures.

MSI has refreshed its line-up for the gaming festival and improved the GE72 a lot: Apart of an up-to-date Intel quad-core CPU, the 17-inch fireball got an IPS panel and a USB 3.1 port. However, the price went up quite a bit, too. Is this justified?

Mixed feelings. Lenovo's newcomer wants to qualify for the multimedia division with its mid-range graphics card but blunders in terms of screen and sound. The keyboard might disappoint users who value good office qualities. However, most other traits, and primarily the performance, are very compelling.

Bigger and better. Sounds disrespectful, but it is just a pun. The latest Apple iPhone 6S Plus is all about the touch as part of the new handling concept called 3D Touch. The latest S model is obviously faster, and you also get better cameras as well as faster communication modules. You also get more weight compared to the predecessor. The new iPhone is still a great smartphone.

Just like every other generation, the 6S models are once again faster, but the design did not change. One thing that was increased is the weight.

77% Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 P50W-C Notebook Review

Flexible piece of gold. The new Toshiba Satellite Radius 15 is one of the few convertibles with a large 15.6-inch display. Thanks to the special hinges, you can use different operating modes, but do they make any sense for such a big device?

Dell UltraSharp U3415W Monitor Review

Wiiiiiiidescreen. Widescreen monitors are the latest trend. With a resolution of 3440x1440 pixels and an aspect ratio of 21:9, Dell aims to be in the forefront with the U3415W, which attracts both, multimedia enthusiasts and office users alike. We take the opportunity and apply our extended display tests for the first time.

78% LG Joy Smartphone Review

Keep it simple ...was apparently the motto for LG's new Joy. The 4-inch phone costs approximately 100 Euros (~$111) and provides the essential equipment apart from a front-facing camera and LED flash. Affordable and solid, it is intended to be a joy to use.

79% Doogee Valencia2 Y100 Pro Smartphone Review

Inexpensive Lollipop. This is one of the more attractive budget smartphones for less than $130. Its curved glass front and metallic back cover are great, but can it perform as well as it looks?
