Muscleman. Cooler Boost, Super RAID, Matrix Display: MSI uses many fancy words for the GT72. We took the brand-new gaming notebook to check the marketing slogans. Can the high-end machine compete with the rivals from Asus, Alienware and Clevo?

75% HP Split x2 13-m210eg Convertible Review
Between worlds. The new HP Split x2 does not require a choice between a tablet and a notebook since the convertible combines both types of devices. Besides an IPS display, the convertible attracts attention with very good battery runtimes as well as decent input devices.

77% Toshiba Satellite Pro C70-B-111 Notebook Review
Multimedia endurance machine. Technically Toshiba has done a great job with this laptop and its runtime endurance places it in the top rankings in the category comparison. Our in-depth report reveals whether the casing, input devices, screen, and general performance can match that.

Asus X555LN-XO112H Notebook Review
76% Asus X555LN-XO112H Notebook Review
Low in contrast. Gaming-suitable laptops no longer have to be a costly affair these days. Asus also follows this trend with its X555LN. For 500 Euros (~$646), the buyer gets a 15.6-inch device with a Core i5 processor and GeForce 840M graphics core. The price is even below 500 Euros (~$646) without a Windows operating system.

82% Acer Aspire V3-772G-747a8G1.12TWakk Notebook Review
Let's play again. About a year ago we took a look at the Acer Aspire V3-772G and came away impressed with its performance. This time around, we'll examine the latest model in the series and check to see what else is new besides an updated graphics card.

78% HP Pavilion 15-p008ng Notebook Review
Affordable all-rounder. HP demands 500 Euros (~$647) for its all-round Pavilion 15 laptop. The buyer gets a Full HD screen alongside a GeForce 840M GPU, and a Core i5 processor. Can you really go wrong with this device at this price?

Jealous? The HP Envy 15-u001ng wants to make other convertible users jealous with its 360-degree hinge and the metal case. Read our review to find out why this is probably not going to happen.

Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme Convertible Review
78% Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme Convertible Review
Robust. The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Extreme feels at home even in the most adverse environments. The convertible has a robust case, combined with a strong processor and good input devices. But at the price Dell is asking, buyers will certainly have to pay for what they get.

Acer Aspire E5-571G-536E
79% Acer Aspire E5-571G-536E Notebook Review
Solid total package. Acer introduces its Aspire E5-571G as an all-round laptop that includes a dedicated Nvidia graphics card and Intel Core i5 processor. However, hardware is not everything in this category - it very much depends on performance and quality. Has Acer created a successful combination for 700 Euros (~$920)? Find out in the following report.

Acer Aspire E5-771G-553Q (i5, 840M) Notebook Review
80% Acer Aspire E5-771G-553Q (i5, 840M) Notebook Review
Big brother. Is bigger also better in this case? Our comparison review will uncover this with respect to old problem areas such as the display. The 15.6-inch model achieved consistently strong results in our previous review. We expected the same from this device, when we started the test.

Gigabyte P25X v2 Notebook Review
82% Gigabyte P25X v2 Notebook Review
Character actor. While most notebook companies rely at most on the GeForce GTX 870M for their 15-inch department, Gigabyte uses Nvidia's top model for the P25X v2. Also the other features (Blu-ray burner, mSATA-SSDs...) clearly point to a high-end product. In this review you will see whether the device is worth its 2,000 Euros (~$2627).

Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 Notebook Review
78% Acer Extensa 2510-34Z4 Notebook Review
Affordable endurance machine. The hunt for a low-priced and, at the same time, long-lasting office machine has come to an end. The Extensa 2510 not only has long battery runtimes to offer but also brings along a good keyboard and matte screen. The bundle is available for just over 400 Euros (~$525).

Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 (59424712) Notebook Review Update
82% Lenovo IdeaPad Y50-70 (59424712) Notebook Review Update
The agony of choice. After our first review of the FHD version of the new Lenovo Y50 Gaming notebook, we are now focusing on a version with UHD display (3840x2160 pixels) and fast Samsung SSD. Full HD and matte or ultra HD and glossy? That's the question. We compare both displays.

Lenovo Y40-59423035 Notebook Review
75% Lenovo Y40-59423035 Notebook Review
Entry-level portable gaming. While Lenovo's Y40 clearly isn't the best choice for hardcore gamers, there's no question that the sleek 14-inch system with its current-generation i7 Haswell CPU, dedicated Radeon GPU and 256 GB SSD has plenty to offer for its $850 asking price, even though the display doesn't quite measure up.

Lenovo IdeaPad G50-70 Notebook Review
74% Lenovo IdeaPad G50-70 Notebook Review
A good idea? Lenovo want their IdeaPad G50-70 to be a tempting, low-cost notebook with at least basic gaming power. Equipped with a dedicated graphics card, our test device certainly could be just that. But is the Radeon R5 230M the right graphics card for the task? Read on to find out.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 (59427656) Notebook Review
76% Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 (59427656) Notebook Review
Victim of the model policy. Lenovo's new Z50-series offers current and well-implemented mainstream and high-end technology for a small price but also combines it with components that are used in devices for 500 Euros (~$662). Are the display, input devices and case worthy of the 750 Euros (~$993) price tag?

Acer Aspire V3-331-P982 Notebook Review Update
77% Acer Aspire V3-331-P982 Notebook Review Update
Enduring. Despite the low price of around 450 Euros (~$597), Acer's 13.3-inch laptop can boast with very good battery runtimes. Read in our report whether that is the only thing the computer has to offer.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 15 Notebook Review
74% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 15 Notebook Review
Flexibility on a budget. Lenovo's expansive Flex lineup continues with the updated 15.6-inch model in time for the back-to-school season. We check out both the chassis and performance to see if this inexpensive touchscreen notebook is an improvement over first generation Flex models.

Gigabyte P27G v2 Notebook Review
80% Gigabyte P27G v2 Notebook Review
Classical values. With the P27G v2, Gigabyte does not follow the current trend of designing slimmer and slimmer notebooks, but rather resorts to old virtues like a replaceable battery and comfortable maintenance. Admittedly, the 17-inch notebook is not really a compact gaming notebook, but it convinces with generous equipment and a fair price.

P34G v2 v2. After we already reviewed the Gigabyte P34G v2 a couple of weeks ago, we now have a look at the similar Schenker C404 in this review update. Battery and build quality were drawbacks in the test of the original. Is the C404 better?

73% Fujitsu Stylistic Q704 Convertible Review
Weary business tablet. More than one year ago, we tested a Windows 8 tablet made by Fujitsu, which - among other things thanks to its keyboard dock - was supposed to appeal to business customers. Now, its successor has arrived - but unfortunately, not all changes are for the better.

74% Lenovo Z40-59422614 Notebook Review
With great power… comes great compromise? The Z40 is most certainly among the most affordable machines to combine a Core i5 CPU, a discrete GPU, and good battery life into a single package. Surely you’re asking yourself: what’s the catch?

82% Acer Aspire V5-573G-54218G1Taii Notebook Review Update
Maxwell upgrade. The GeForce GTX 850M graphics core equips the Aspire with considerable gaming performance. At the same time, the good battery life and the slim, elegant casing can be maintained. Whether Acer has designed the optimal all-round notebook will be shown in the following review.

84% Dell Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme Notebook Review
Nerves of steel. Dell's Latitude 14 Rugged Extreme is a particularly robustly designed work device that can be easily used in technology-unfriendly environments. In addition to the solid casing, it sports high-performance components and modern interfaces. We extensively tested what can be expected from the Rugged Latitude.

78% Acer Aspire V3-371-36M2 Notebook Review
Got stamina? The first thing you notice about this flat 13.3-inch notebook is its white case, but its most striking feature lies elsewhere: The Aspire V3-371 provides very good battery life at a moderate price. But is the Aspire a persuasive offer overall? Our review reveals the answer.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 Notebook Review
76% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 2 14 Notebook Review
Not quite a Yoga. Lenovo's Yoga devices offer four modes, the Lenovo Flex 2 14 just two. So it is the right choice for anybody who is looking for a flexible notebook, but not a tablet. Our review shows why there is an update not even one year after the IdeaPad Flex 14, where the differences are to the Yoga 2 13 and who could be interested in the Flex 2 14.

76% Dell Inspiron 17-5748 Notebook Review
Seventeen and having fun. The new Inspiron 17-5748 is a member of Dell's lower mid-range, multimedia laptops: Not as elegant as the XPS models, they still feature aluminum on the casing. We explain in this report why it is good for multimedia fans but barely suitable for gamers.

77% Dell Inspiron 15-5547 Notebook Review
Minimalistic, yet captivating? You'd like to purchase an affordable multimedia laptop with a sleek design and decent gaming capabilities? In that case, Dell might be onto something with its Inspiron 15-5547. Our review will show which quality levels can truly be achieved for less than 600 Euros (~$802).

84% HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 Notebook Review Update
Better, thanks to Haswell. HP implanted a new heart in their EliteBooks: Instead of Ivy Bridge processors, now the convertibles are outfitted with Haswell CPUs. This was a worthwhile upgrade, as the renovated devices now offer a longer battery life -- and somewhat stronger performance.

Two are better than one. Although it has not been long since it appeared on the market, the successor is already available: Not even five months after our test, Aorus launched the next model of its slim high-end gamer, the X7. Instead of a pair of GTX 765M in SLI, now two GTX 860M graphics chips deliver a lot of gaming performance.
