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.

Face Off: Lenovo Yoga 900 vs. HP Spectre x360 13 vs. Dell Inspiron 13 7348

HP Z1 G2 AIO Workstation Review

88% HP Z1 G2 AIO Workstation Review

Compact workplace. HP has had an all-in-one workstation in its portfolio for quite some time. Despite the compact build, the Z1 is intended to be a match for conventional desktop stations in performance, maintainability and flexibility. We tested just what can be expected of HP's Z1 G2.

Face Off: Microsoft Surface Book vs. Dell XPS 13 InfinityEdge vs. Apple MacBook Pro Retina 13

13-inch luxury. The Surface Book is challenging the traditional notebook with its one-of-a-kind design. However, it's still missing a few core features to truly put it above the current competition.

Face Off: MSI GT72S vs. Asus G752 vs. Clevo P870DM

Ultimate gaming machine. How convenient to see the 17.3-inch MSI GT72S, Asus G752, and Clevo P870DM all launch in pretty much the same time frame. It's only natural that we put them all together for our latest comparison Face Off to see which can be considered the best.

Lenovo B70-80 80MR0006GE

77% Lenovo B70-80 80MR0006GE Notebook Review

More than mediocre? The less expensive devices from Lenovo in particular often got a very mediocre rating in the recent past; the author was obviously disappointed by the B50-80. So does the "bigger sibling" B70-80 perform better? The situation seems to be better with a powerful i5 CPU and dedicated Nvidia GPU.

Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LA Convertible Review

73% Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LA Convertible Review

Middle-class convertible. The predecessors' displays didn't exactly impress because of their low resolution and subpar brightness. Asus improved the Transformer Book Flip somewhat in that regard, but the new convertible is still decidedly average. We'll explain why in the following review.
Intel Core i5-5200U | Intel HD Graphics 5500 | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
Lenovo Flex 2 Pro 15 Notebook Review

78% Lenovo Flex 2 Pro 15 Notebook Review

Flexible all-rounder. Lenovo's multi-mode, 15.6-inch Flex 2 Pro 15 does not exhibit any severe shortcomings and presents itself as a well-rounded, versatile device. However, its decent configuration (SSD, 16 GB RAM) forces up the price to almost 1000 Euros (~$1135).
Intel Core i7-4510U | NVIDIA GeForce 840M | 15.6" | 2.3 kg

Asus GL552JX Notebook Review

85% Asus GL552JX Notebook Review

Gaming with limits. The Asus slogan for the new 15-inch ROG device is "Gaming Without Limits", which is unfortunately not the case because of the GeForce GTX 950M. If the limited performance is sufficient for you, you get a well-balanced multimedia notebook with an SSD, great input devices and a convincing display for 1,200 Euros (~$1354), which is, however, not without some flaws.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M | 15.6" | 2.6 kg
Asus ZenBook Pro UX501JW-FI218H Notebook Review

83% Asus ZenBook Pro UX501JW-FI218H Notebook Review

A new perspective. It is not long since we had the US model of the Asus UX501JW in our hands and we were impressed by the overall concept including the 4K display. Now, the ZenBook is available in Germany with a matte display. Unfortunately, not everything has turned out for the better.

Face Off: Asus EeeBook X205TA vs. Lenovo S20 vs. Acer Aspire ES1

The traditional netbooks. Phablets, Ultrabooks, and convertibles are turning the common netbook into a dying breed. With that said, netbooks will always have the one advantage: Price. What's the best 11.6-inch netbook you can currently buy for just a few hundred dollars?

Panasonic ToughPad FZ-M1 Tablet Review

84% Panasonic ToughPad FZ-M1 Tablet Review

Takes a licking. Panasonic's Toughpad FZ-M1 is an extremely robust 7-inch Windows 8.1 tablet. The Core i5 processor is cooled passively, which prevents continuous top-notch performance.

Review: Fujitsu LifeBook A514 Office Notebook

80% Fujitsu LifeBook A514 Notebook Review

Inconsistent office turbo. The LifeBook A514 wants to stand out from the typical budget office notebooks with an i3 CPU as well as an SSD. This works pretty well in terms of general performance, but other areas – starting with the display up to the temperature development – leave mixed impressions: Some results are great, some reveal serious drawbacks.

Schenker W505 (Clevo P751ZM) Notebook Review

86% Schenker W505 (Clevo P751ZM) Notebook Review

Familiar hardware. Old hat or still recommendable? This is the question for the Quadro GPUs K1100M, K3100M and K5100M, which are still not based on the current Maxwell architecture. Right before the launch of the successor, we once again put these three chips through our benchmarks.

HP's ZBook 15 G2 has been in our long-term test for some weeks now, and it has to show whether it can keep what it promises in the long run after passing through our regular test procedures. Besides our experiences with the review sample, we will also deal with the topic of two external batteries to increase the runtimes.

Not too big, not too small. Gaming notebooks can be as big as 18 inches or as small as 14, but most users will want something more practical and appropriate. We'll compare a few popular 15-inch gaming models that are all fit for both mobility and tight dorm spaces.
HP Omen Pro 15 Workstation Review

84% HP Omen Pro 15 Workstation Review

Mobile workplace. The HP Omen Pro is a very exclusive workstation with a serious premium claim. While the design and the mobility leave a good impression right away, you only get old hardware components. We checked if the combination is convincing nonetheless.

Asus AsusPro Essential P751JF Notebook Review

78% Asus AsusPro Essential P751JF Notebook Review

All-rounder with minor drawbacks. The new, relatively low-priced desktop replacement laptop from the AsusPro series does not have any really striking features. It is not a specialized device, but rather a solid multimedia all-rounder with some business qualities, which is also suitable for gaming and does everything quite decently, but nothing exceptionally well.
