Toshiba Satellite Radius 14 Convertible Review

78% Toshiba Satellite Radius 14 Convertible Review

Retro-Radius. Toshiba sees a market for affordable 14-inch convertibles and positions its new Radius 14 lineup in the gap. We quite liked the flexible device for its casing and input devices, despite restrictions such as the TN screen or conventional hard drive in the test.

GPU downgrade.Dell's 17.3-inch all-rounder comes with a Skylake processor and matte Full HD screen. A Radeon graphics card is also on board. However, Dell has opted for a rather weak model that does not quite fit with the concept of an 800-Euro (~$872) all-rounder.

Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L10W-C-108 Notebook Review

72% Toshiba Satellite Radius 11 L10W-C-108 Notebook Review

Convertible with a bad display. Toshiba's Satellite Radius 11 is a compact convertible, which is cooled passively. We did find some drawbacks during the review, so we are not really impressed by the device.

Lenovo Ideapad Y700 17ISK 80Q0 Notebook Review

83% Lenovo Ideapad Y700 17ISK 80Q0 Notebook Review

Barebone gamer. Lenovo is doubling down on the gaming front with the Y700 series. The successor to last year's Y70 is better than before, yet it is still lacking in features common on competing gaming models.
Intel Core i7-6700HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 17.3" | 3.6 kg
Asus GX700 Notebook Review

87% Asus GX700 Notebook Review

Bring in the water! While water-cooled desktop systems are not uncommon, most notebook models are exclusively cooled by air. Asus still takes this step and presents the GX700, a combination of high-end laptop and external water-cooling. As one of the first editorial offices, we had the chance to take a closer look at the overall package.

Acer Aspire V3-372 Subnotebook Review

80% Acer Aspire V3-372 Subnotebook Review

Small, black and quiet. It has to be known that Acer's new subnotebook has a fan since it is hardly audible. Anyone who believes that subnotebooks cannot produce a useful sound will have to rethink that idea, just like those who were surely set on a good keyboard in an 800-Euro (~$868) laptop. Our test reveals just how deep the water runs.

83% MSI GE62 6QD Apache Pro Notebook Review

Two steps forward, one step back. The updated MSI GE62 not only involves a new CPU and USB 3.1 but also a superb FHD screen. However, the review sample's power consumption and battery life are not at all typical Skylake.

Face Off: Lenovo ThinkPad T450s vs. HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G2 vs. Dell Latitude 14 E7450

Compact business. These 14-inch notebooks show that you don't have to sacrifice core business features for a smaller and more portable screen size.
Dell Precision 5510 Workstation Review

89% Dell Precision 5510 Workstation Review

XPS 15 for pros. Dell's mobile Precision 5510 workstation, an offshoot of the XPS 15, is to primarily satisfy the needs of the professional users. 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.

HP ProBook 440 G3 Notebook Review

82% HP ProBook 440 G3 Notebook Review

Entry into the business world. With its new ProBook 440 G3, HP shows what an entry-level device of the business class really needs. Intel's new Skylake generation may not be missing here. Unfortunately, the 14-inch model also inherited problems of the ProBook 430 G3.

Acer Aspire V5-591G-71K2 Notebook Review

82% Acer Aspire V5-591G-71K2 Notebook Review

Premium all-rounder. Quad-core processor, GeForce GTX 950M graphics core and 8 GB DDR4 RAM turn the Aspire into a gaming capable multimedia all-rounder. In general, the computer left a good impression, but its display is a bit weak.

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

Dual-purpose notebook. While notebook sales this year are down worldwide, multi-mode models are expected to become more popular in the years to follow. Choices are already growing, so let's take a close look at three of them in the 13-inch space.
Aorus X3 Plus v5 Notebook Review

86% Aorus X3 Plus v5 Notebook Review

Mini gaming machine. Skylake, USB Type-C, DDR4, NVMe SSD, touchpad redesign, and HDMI 2.0 round up the list of changes for the refreshed X3 Plus. Aorus shows it means business in the already narrow sub 14-inch gaming category.

Dell XPS 15 2016 (9550) InfinityEdge Notebook Review

86% Dell XPS 15 2016 (9550) InfinityEdge Notebook Review

High-end without high-end performance. We review the new XPS 15 from Dell and have a look at the performance of the 45-Watt Core i5. Can the latter use its full potential in the flat chassis? Throttling is, fortunately, not the answer – at least not on mains.

HP Pavilion 15 (i7-6700HQ, GTX 950M) Notebook Review

82% HP Pavilion 15 (i7-6700HQ, GTX 950M) Notebook Review

A balanced bundle. With the Pavilion 15-ak003ng, HP offers a well-equipped multimedia notebook in 15.6-inch format. Among other things, there is a quad-core processor, an IPS display and an SSD on board. However, it slightly tarnishes the good overall impression that the warranty is only one year.

HP Envy 13-d000ng Notebook Review

84% HP Envy 13-d000ng Notebook Review

Value for money. The Envy 13 from HP is a fresh candidate for the subnotebook crown. We can say this upfront: It cannot quite keep up with the current leaders like the Dell XPS 13 and Apple MacBook in respect to the performance. But it does not have to – because our review unit convinces in another section: It is rare that you get a 13-inch system with so many pixels for the money.

Just Cause 3 Notebook Benchmarks

Just Cause 3 Notebook Benchmarks

Adrenaline junkie. Just Cause returns to the PC after five years. The third part follows the tradition of the series and offers an extremely crazy and casual gameplay. However, it looks like the developers forgot the technical optimization with all this fun. Here are our first impressions of the retail version.
Rainbow Six Siege Notebook Benchmarks

Rainbow Six Siege Notebook Benchmarks

Rough diamond. Ubisoft does not follow the casual trend of its own franchise over the last couple of years with Rainbow Six Siege. Instead of stupid non-stop action, the title turns out to be a clever tactical sandbox. We have a closer look at the technology.
Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK 80NW Notebook Review

83% Lenovo Ideapad Y700 15ISK 80NW Notebook Review

A familiar refresh. The jump from the Y50 to the 15.6-inch Y700 brings about a few important upgrades, but there are still some major holes in terms of features and accessibility that have yet to be implemented.

HP Envy 17-n107ng Notebook Review

83% HP Envy 17-n107ng Notebook Review

Hot and enduring. Long battery life is obviously appreciated, but does it benefit the task profile of the less than mobile 17-inch form factor in the case of the new notebook from HP? On the other hand, the multimedia aspects are pretty successful; the sound system in particular left a very good impression. The biggest issue is the very hot chassis temperatures.

85% Asus Zenbook UX303UB (Core i7-6500U, GeForce 940M) Subnotebook Review

Compact all-rounder. The latest model from Asus' Zenbook UX 303 series is once again a thin and nice 13.3-inch notebook. It has a lot of performance, but is still quiet in operation. The battery runtimes are unfortunately shorter compared to previous Zenbook models.

Successful evolution. For the first time, Lenovo equips a ThinkPad from the E500 series with a high-quality IPS display as well as a graphics card with fast GDDR5 memory. The price including SSD and i7 CPU is still below 1,000 Euros (~$1096) – is it a bargain?
