HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 Notebook Review Update
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.

80% Aorus X7 v2 Notebook Review Update
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.

Lenovo Miix 2 11 Convertible Review
78% Lenovo Miix 2 11 Convertible Review
Good value. Lenovo is asking for around 550 Euros (~$738) for a Windows tablet with a Core i3 processor, Full HD IPS display, a "real" SSD (not eMMC) and a keyboard dock. Is the exceptionally low price Lenovo's declaration of war against the competition, or is it the only way the company could think of to entice potential buyers? Our review reveals the answer.

79% Lenovo Yoga 2 13 Convertible Review
Twist and turn as you like. The screen of Lenovo's Yoga line can be completely folded owing to a clever hinge design. Both the Yoga and Yoga 2 Pro were popular devices, and now Lenovo launches the Yoga 2 13. Our test reveals that not a lot has changed, but some things have been disimproved.

Gigabyte P35W v2
82% Gigabyte P35W v2 Notebook Review
Gaming rocket with shortcomings. Gigabyte wants to offer a laptop for gamers who value performance and style in the form of its P35W v2. Particularly the weight of just 2.44 kg and a thickness of only 2 cm are things that Gigabyte is proud of.

85% Asus GL550JK-CN391H Notebook Review
Pure versatility... ...or something like that would be a fitting slogan for the GL550JK. Unlike the 750 line, Asus uses a fairly slim chassis that sports a gaming-suitable, mid-range GPU and a high-end IPS screen. Read here how the 15-inch device fares compared with the contenders.

89% Toshiba Tecra Z50 A-12K Notebook Review
Fit for the office. A good-looker has entered the office dubbed Toshiba Tecra Z50 A-12K. It is slim and always stays cool. Should the bosses give it an open-ended contract as soon as possible? We will clarify that in this review of the business laptop.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y50 Notebook Review
80% Lenovo IdeaPad Y50 Notebook Review
Entry price, high-end gaming. Lenovo's latest Y Series has the best of both worlds: Sleek, thin looks with exceptional performance for a very fair starting price of $1050. Though the notebook is marketed as an entry-level portable gaming machine, we believe even serious gamers should take a look at what the new Y50 has to offer.

Maxwell or Kepler? Asus offers the high-end notebook G750 in three different variants. After the GTX 870M and the GTX 880M have already proven their capabilities, we dedicate this review to the cheaper version. Does the performance of the GeForce GTX 860M also convince?

Gigabyte P34G v2 Notebook Review
81% Gigabyte P34G v2 Notebook Review
Speedy Gonzales. Small, fast, but without a sombrero: the v2 successor of Gigabyte's P34G little gaming machine wants to win over gamers with the new Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M, but it has not changed much in other respects. The technically well-conceived hardware is installed in the familiar casing that, unfortunately, had a few processing flaws in our sample.

At home on the desk. The G510 isn't one of the slimmer notebooks on the market. Its advantages are the solid performance, ease of maintenance, and the decent input devices. Equipped with a dedicated GPU from AMD, is the Home Office notebook suitable for gaming as well?

88% Asus Zenbook UX32LN-R4029H Ultrabook Review Update
Gaming-to-go - Part Two. Lots of power packed into an attractive case - that is one way to describe this Zenbook. An IPS panel and SSD complete the package. Even with its high-performance components, its battery life is good as well. Does the Zenbook have weaknesses too? Keep reading to find out.

89% Apple MacBook Pro Retina 15 Late 2013 Notebook Review
All quiet on the western front. Apple introduced its reworked 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina last autumn. Although the entry-level price dropped a bit, we still expect a maximum amount of quality and performance for more than 2,000 Euros (~$2722).

85% Asus Zenbook UX32LA-R3025H Ultrabook Review
Slim aluminum. Yet another offshoot of the Asus Zenbook product line is to attract quality-conscious customers who also value high mobility. An energy-saving Haswell CPU alongside its integrated graphics, paired with a high-capacity battery, and an ultra-thin aluminum casing - is that enough for a new record in terms of endurance and battery runtime?

78% Asus AsusPro B551LG-CN009G Notebook Review
Troubled professional. Asus' new Pro laptops are aimed at business professionals - integrating a lot of security features - while also being multimedia powerhouses with a DVD burner and the new GeForce 840M GPU. Unfortunately though, the Taiwanese company has failed to meet its own quality requirements, forcing us to repeat some of the tests with a second Pro B551LG device.

77% MSI GS70-2PEi71611 Notebook Review
Wickedly hot. Most gaming machines are fast, but also heavy and bulky. MSI thinks that unnecessary, and presents us the thinnest and lightest 17-inch laptop in the world, according to its advertisement. A quick look at the specs nurtures doubts: Has the manufacturer managed to keep temperature and noise development under control?

86% Apple MacBook Air 13 MD761D/B 2014-06 Notebook Review Update
Heart transplant. The new Apple MacBook Air 13 Mid 2014 is once again an evolution instead of a revolution, because there are not many differences compared to the last version. We focus on the inner values. A new Intel Core i5-4260U Haswell CPU clocked at 1.4 GHz in combination with 4 GB RAM and a large 256 GB SSD. Sounds appealing.

Flat companion. Flat gaming is popular. No, we don't mean 2D games, but thin gaming notebooks like the MSI GS60. The 15.6-inch device is supposed to provide excellent mobility with a height of almost 2 centimeters and powerful hardware. Our review shows you why this is going to be a hot ride.
