Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2016 (Core i7, WQHD) Ultrabook Review

89% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2016 (Core i7, WQHD) Ultrabook Review

Slimmer is not possible. Already the third generation of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon belonged to the slimmest and lightest 14 inch notebooks on the market. In the fourth generation, Lenovo goes one better and reduces the weight to below 1.2 kg. We have checked how this affects temperatures, system noise, and performance.

Dell Latitude 14 E7470 Ultrabook Review

89% Dell Latitude 14 E7470 Ultrabook Review

New benchmark. A laptop rarely manages such a high score. Can the expensive WQHD version meet the highest expectations? To say it right away, the battery runtimes are a bit disappointing, but the rest of the 14-inch device will be the benchmark for the ultimate business to go.
Intel Core i7-6600U | Intel HD Graphics 520 | 14" | 1.7 kg
Vaio Z Flip VJZ13BA11L Convertible Review

84% Vaio Z Flip VJZ13BA11L Convertible Review

Back in style... for a price. The Vaio convertible has returned to North America with a starting price tag much higher than other Ultrabooks currently in the market. What does the Flip have under the hood to justify its nearly two-fold MSRP?

Lenovo ThinkPad T460s (Core i5, Full HD) Ultrabook Review

87% Lenovo ThinkPad T460s (Core i5, Full HD) Ultrabook Review

Also a success with the base specs? After the high-end version of the ThinkPad T460s could already convince us, we now have a look at the base configuration. The Full HD panel in particular, however, cannot fulfill the high expectations.
Intel Core i5-6200U | Intel HD Graphics 520 | 14.0" | 1.4 kg
Lenovo ThinkPad T460s (Core i7, WQHD) Ultrabook Review

91% Lenovo ThinkPad T460s (Core i7, WQHD) Ultrabook Review

On the way to perfection? Lenovo's T460s is proof that even an excellent notebook like the T450s can be improved. No device from the T4x0s series was ever so light and at the same time so powerful – but users will have to waive expandability and maintainability in return.
Intel Core i7-6600U | Intel HD Graphics 520 | 14.0" | 1.3 kg
Lenovo ThinkPad X260 (Core i5, WXGA) Notebook Review

86% Lenovo ThinkPad X260 (Core i5, WXGA) Notebook Review

Small typewriter. Lenovo's new 12.5-inch ThinkPad X260 mobilizes the office and convinces in many regards. Still, it cannot manage to secure the top spot for business subnotebooks, despite the good concept.
Intel Core i5-6200U | Intel HD Graphics 520 | 12.5" | 1.5 kg
Lenovo ThinkPad T560 (Core i5, SSHD) Ultrabook Review

88% Lenovo ThinkPad T560 (Core i5, SSHD) Ultrabook Review

Faster, higher, stronger? Lenovo's new ThinkPad T560 convinces with a wide viewing angle IPS display and promises more performance and longer battery runtimes thanks to the Skylake platform. However, the other changes of the 15-inch device are very subtle – is it still enough for the victory in its class?

81% HP Spectre x360 15-ap012dx Convertible Review

4K UHD update. The recently released Spectre x360 15 is available in FHD and UHD display options. Are those smaller pixels really worth the extra cost? We compare the two models to see what drawbacks and benefits one may have over the other.

Asus Zenbook UX305UA-FC040T Subnotebook Review

88% Asus Zenbook UX305UA-FC040T Subnotebook Review

Long lasting. A Skylake processor implies higher performance in the Zenbook UX305 without negative impact on the battery runtimes. The fast SSD, Full HD display and good keyboard remain unchanged.

Razer Blade Stealth Subnotebook Review

83% Razer Blade Stealth Subnotebook Review

Extra sharp. Razer has honed its ultra-thin design philosophy even further to provide the sleekest 12.5-inch Ultrabook yet for just under $1000 USD. It's a genuinely compact notebook from a gaming-centric company that even non-gamers will want to consider purchasing.

Dell XPS 13 9350 (i7-6560U, QHD+) Ultrabook Review

88% Dell XPS 13 9350 (i7-6560U, QHD+) Ultrabook Review

Maxed out. Our latest XPS 13 is equipped to the brim with a 3200x1800 resolution touchscreen, Core i7-6560U CPU, Iris Graphics 540, and a 512 GB NVMe SSD. Is this higher cost SKU worth the extra horsepower?

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.

85% Asus Zenbook UX303UB-DH74T Notebook Review

Dell XPS 13-9350 InfinityEdge Ultrabook Review

90% Dell XPS 13-9350 InfinityEdge Ultrabook Review

Skylake successor… Dell’s adoption of an evolutionary approach to revising their flagship XPS 13 Ultrabook seems appropriate given the splendor of the machine’s futuristic design and the universal praise heaped upon its predecessor. But can its chipset refresh and tweaks under the hood keep it perched at the top of the pile? We leave no stone unturned and no key unpressed.
