Asynchronous. The combination of a dedicated Radeon R7 M360 with the integrated GPU of the SoC FX-8800P is a Crossfire unit called Radeon R8 M365DX and could not really convince in our review. The other aspects leave a better impression.

Lenovo ThinkPad P50s-20FKS00400 Notebook Review

79% Lenovo ThinkPad P50s-20FKS00400 Notebook Review

Outdated? Lenovo’s new ThinkPad P50s is the successor to the ThinkPad W550s. Despite the compact dimensions, users of the mobile workstation are supposed to get sufficient performance. Similar to the predecessor, however, the system lacks a bit of CPU performance, and now there is also a strong competitor from Lenovo themselves.

A success. Schenker's S306 is a slim 13.3-inch subnotebook that shouldn't have any problems finding an audience. The S306 is equipped with a beautiful IPS Full-HD display, a good keyboard and it's easy to maintain as well. The battery life could be better, however.

No IPS after all. There is still some confusion about the panel of the latest ROG device on the Internet.

4K Nitro. The latest premium model from the Aspire VN7-592G lineup boasts with its configuration: Razor-sharp 4K panel, 16 GB of RAM, SSD + HDD. With a price of almost 1900 Euros (~$2146), it is not made for everyone. Positive: Despite maximum hardware equipment, the battery life has improved compared with the former model.

85% Lenovo ThinkPad L460-20FVS01400 Notebook Review

Longer lasting. Lenovo's ThinkPad L460 does not offer many new features. The Skylake processors provide a bit more computing power, and the L440 clearly has a longer battery life. Unfortunately, Lenovo does not install a docking port in the L460 models furnished with AMD graphics cards.

Premium allrounder, light edition. Not long ago, we reviewed the Acer Aspire V5-591G-71K2. That notebook - equipped with a modern Intel quad-core CPU and a GeForce GTX 950M - particularly impressed us with its performance.

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.

Asus Zenbook UX305CA-FB055T Subnotebook Review

89% Asus Zenbook UX305CA-FB055T Subnotebook Review

Slim and classy. The Zenbook's special feature is its high-resolution QHD+ panel (3200x1800 pixels). It provides a razor-sharp image, but its contrast is weak. Everything is in line beyond that: Fast SSD, long battery life, decent keyboard. However, the buyer will have to accept occasional CPU whining.

Looking for more performance? After one-year of abstinence, Lenovo once again offers a powerful device without ULV hardware within its premium lineup. Thanks to fast processors and optional discreet GPU, the T460p is supposed to fill the gap between normal T-series and mobile workstations, but the cooling in particular is a minor issue.
