85% HP EliteBook Folio 1040 G2 Ultrabook Review

Boldly priced. Actually, HP has almost done everything right in the refresh of its premium model and presents a throughout well-designed, very slim and swift business ultrabook with an IPS touchscreen and extensive security features. However, incomprehension evolves when comparing the price-performance ratio with the competition.

Face Off: Aorus X3 Plus vs. Gigabyte P34W vs. Razer Blade 14

Small brawl with powerful punches. Don't let their small footprints fool you — these high-end 14-inch gaming notebooks carry big guns with more firepower than competitors almost twice the size. If you're in the market for an ultraportable powerhouse, the bottom line will almost certainly come down to one of these three.
Asus PU551JH Workstation Review

83% Asus PU551JH Workstation Review

Quiet. Without making a big fuss, Asus has included a mobile 15-inch workstation in its product line. The PU551JH is already available for less than 1,000 Euros (~$1098) and might be a genuine price-cutter thanks to its matte Full HD display and Nvidia Quadro K1100M. We have tested it extensively to see if this is the case.

The Witcher 3 Notebook Benchmarks

Apple MacBook 12 (Early 2015) 1.1 GHz Review

88% Apple MacBook 12 (Early 2015) 1.1 GHz Review

The art of omission. Sometimes less is more, which is what Apple probably thought when they designed the ultramobile MacBook 12. Besides unnecessary weight, they also removed (almost) all the ports. A radical concept that won't suit everybody – and inspire some.

79% Dell Inspiron 13 and Inspiron 13 Special Edition Convertible Review

Update with a catch. Dell updated its 13.3-inch convertible with the latest technology. Besides the new Broadwell processor you still get a 360-degree hinge as well as a touchscreen. The most noticeable change, however, is the louder fan.

86% MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

86% Asus GL771JW Notebook Review

Transformation. Compact subnotebook or fully fledged desktop replacement: The MSI GS30 wants to be both at the same time. Our review will reveal whether the GamingDock model does so successfully or whether it sits on the fence.

Aorus X3 Plus v3 Notebook Review

85% Aorus X3 Plus v3 Notebook Review

Size doesn't matter. It may be less than 14-inches, but the Aorus X3 Plus still performs just as well as many larger gaming models currently available. What compromises must buyers make for this 3200 x 1800 QHD+ 13.9-inch notebook with 3x RAID 0 and GTX 970M graphics?

HP 15 2015 Notebook Review

75% HP 15 2015 Notebook Review

Average. The HP 15 is a simple office laptop for home use. The laptop does not shine in any area, except the CPU, but it does offer a decent package. Sadly, the manufacturer has left a lot of room for complaint.
Intel Core i5-5200U | Intel HD Graphics 5500 | 15.6" | 2.2 kg
MSI GE62 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

82% MSI GE62 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

More power. The GeForce GTX 970M is significantly more powerful than the previously tested GE62 model (GeForce GTX 965M). Sadly, even this 4K panel does not make the cut.
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M | 15.6" | 2.4 kg
Asus N551ZU Notebook Review

79% Asus N551ZU Notebook Review

As quiet as a mouse. They are rare indeed: Multimedia laptops equipped with AMD APUs and a powerful dedicated Radeon core. The overall performance is impressive - provided the price is reasonable.

HP EliteBook 850 G2 Notebook Review

86% HP EliteBook 850 G2 Notebook Review

Quality has its price. HP demands almost 2,000 Euros (~$2289) for its top model of the EliteBook 850 series - in return the customer receives a brilliantly manufactured business laptop with an impressive configuration. Ultimately it is the minor weaknesses that prevent the laptop from ascending the top of its appliance class.

Fujitsu Lifebook S935 Subnotebook Review

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501JW Notebook Review

83% Asus ZenBook Pro UX501JW Notebook Review

The Ultimate ZenBook? Sporting nearly identical specifications to the recently-reviewed G501JW, the UX501JW—with a 4K LCD display, discrete graphics, and quad-core CPU—targets an audience who may in fact be a better fit for its choices. Is this truly the ultimate ZenBook?
Intel Core i7-4720HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
Razer Blade Pro 2015 Notebook Review

81% Razer Blade Pro 2015 Notebook Review

Needs sharpening. The 17.3-inch Razer Blade Pro has not seen a major revision since its reveal in 2011 and its age is starting to show. Is the attractive razor-thin form factor and unique Switchblade interface enough to convince the hardcore gaming crowd?

HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 Convertible Review

85% HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 Convertible Review

Even better thanks to Broadwell. The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 can basically be described as a Broadwell upgrade of its predecessor. However, the processor alone suffices to improve the convertible: More power and significantly improved battery runtimes are what the device has to offer.
