Lenovo U41-70 Notebook Review

83% Lenovo U41-70 Notebook Review

Fast ultrabook. As thin and light as an ultrabook, and yet it's not an ultrabook. It lacks a touchscreen and a bit more battery power, but a GeForce graphics card is inside. How does Lenovo's new subnotebook fare compared with other thin graphics machines?

Maintenance-friendly. Schenker's 14-inch Ultrabook stands out with its very individual configurability. However, its noise and temperature development could be better.

81% Lenovo Yoga 3 11 Convertible Review

Multi-mode. Handy as a subnotebook, thin and light as a tablet. The compact form factor could currently represent the optimum between mobility and productivity. The Core M ensures long battery runtimes and the IPS panel a good picture impression. Read our review to find out why the package still cannot really convince us.

85% HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G2 Ultrabook Review

Boldly priced. Actually, HP has almost done everything right in the refresh of its premium model and presents a throughout well-designed, very slim and swift business ultrabook with an IPS touchscreen and extensive security features. However, incomprehension evolves when comparing the price-performance ratio with the competition.

84% Acer Aspire S7 (2015) Ultrabook Review

Sharp as a knife. Slim, elegant and streamlined - the looks of the S7 will stop everyone from simply passing by Acer's premium range. Will the pricey first-rate configuration of WQHD screen and SSD Raid ultimately be convincing? We examined that in this in-depth test report.

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?

89% Lenovo ThinkPad T450s Ultrabook Review

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.

84% Toshiba Portege Z20t-B Convertible Review

Expensive runtime wonder. Toshiba charges a steep price of 2000 Euros (~$2138) for the top configuration of its latest business convertible – in return the user gets a business device with comprehensive features and enormous battery runtimes. Thanks to the anti-reflective touchscreen, the Portege Z20t can also be used outdoors.

Little jack of all trades. The manufacturer describes its new EliteBook as a sturdy travel companion. The build and emissions impress us, but compromises have to be made in performance compared with the competition.

Dell XPS 13 (Early 2015) Notebook Review

88% Dell XPS 13 (Early 2015) Notebook Review

Simply brilliant. Dell now offers the XPS 13 with a non-touch display and a more mainstream resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels for a much more affordable price. Not only is the new display brighter, but it's matte as well, which improves outdoor usability. The remainder of the hardware is very similar to the QHD+ version, so the new model inherits both its strengths and weaknesses.

Even more pixels! As the successor to Dell's XPS 15 (Late 2013) with its QHD+ display, the American company now presents the overhauled XPS 15 in a new configuration with a 4K UHD display and a more powerful processor. The almost perfect display image and reasonably good performance are enticing. Unfortunately, some of the computer's former problems remain unresolved.

1, 2, Yoga 3. Lenovo squeezes a 14-inch screen into a chassis that's roughly the same size as last year's Yoga 2 13 and upgrades the hardware at the same time as well. The new Yoga 3 14 inherits most of the predecessor's familiar traits and while it improves in some areas, it also takes a slight step back in another.

Broadwell vs. Haswell – Duel of the ULV Processors

Does an upgrade make sense? Several weeks after their official launch, most of the new Broadwell processors passed through our test course. So, it is time to deliver a first summary.

Intelligent Memory: 16 GB RAM modules for Broadwell notebooks

[Update] Officially, Intel's Broadwell processor can only address RAM modules up to 8 GB thus far. This is also because of the fact that bigger SODIMMs are not widely available. The small RAM manufacturer Intelligent Memory is the first to launch 16 GB modules to be compatible with current notebooks. Update: First tests were successfully conducted.

Lenovo ThinkPad T450s Ultrabook Review

89% Lenovo ThinkPad T450s Ultrabook Review

The return of the old master. What can be improved in an almost perfect notebook? Lenovo might have thought that it is better not to change too much and launched an only slightly revised edition of the T440s with the ThinkPad T450s. At least, the manufacturer (partly) answered the complaints about the predecessor's unusual five-button ClickPad.

87% Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook Review

No compromises - part 2. Compact, highly mobile, attractive - this is how one could sum up the Dell XPS 13. Thanks to its Core i7 processor, the notebook is quite powerful as well, although the battery life suffers as a result.

Working on details. Lenovo's ThinkPad T450s steps in big shoes. The expectations are high that the successor of the overall successful T440s is even a bit better. In fact, the T450s proves to be a carefully matured perfectionist - and it now challenges the competition from HP, Dell & co.

Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Ultrabook Review

87% Lenovo ThinkPad X250 Ultrabook Review

No (big) experiments. Lenovo only introduces small changes for the latest sibling of the X200-series – but just those changes improve a good subnotebook and result in an even better one. The manufacturer even listened to the criticism about the unpopular 5-button ClickPad of the predecessor.

87% Asus Zenbook UX305 Subnotebook Review

Slimline. How much flatter does it get? The Core M is at its best, with 12 millimeters in an airless case. The performance lags behind the Haswell competitors, and the Zenbook inspires no wonder in terms of battery life. Still, input devices, workmanship, emissions, and (last but not least) the price argue in favor of purchase.

No more fans. Core-M makes it possible: The new ThinkPad Helix 2 is available without a fan for the first time, but is still supposed to provide sufficient performance for all important applications. Can the versatile convertible meet the high expectations of business customers?

Refusal to compromise… You can’t have it all—or can you? Dell’s latest XPS 13 pushes the envelope in a number of different critical categories, but most notably portability: this is the smallest 13.3-inch notebook we’ve reviewed. Could we be witnessing the best ultraportable to date?
