Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 Tablet Review

69% Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 Tablet Review

Tabloid tablet. The Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 features a 4k IPS display panel and is large enough to work with DIN A3 / Tabloid-sized drawings. At a price of about 4500 Euros (~$5800), the tablet is way too expensive to appeal to the average consumer.

Acer Aspire E1-771-33114G50Mnii Notebook Review

71% Acer Aspire E1-771-33114G50Mnii Notebook Review

Does it always have to be expensive? For about 500 Euro (~$680), Acer sells their Aspire E1-771. The 17.3-inch notebook with an Intel Core i-CPU competes as an office machine - but is the system with its killer price a worthwhile investment?

75% Acer Aspire V5-132P Notebook Review

Change of platforms. Acer now banishes Temash from the small subnotebook and relies on an Intel processor instead. The good-looking casing and IPS screen have been preserved. Our report uncovers whether the laptop benefits from its new CPU platform.

Review Dell Latitude 3340 Notebook

73% Review Dell Latitude 3340 Notebook

Studious. Commonplace plastic barebones, hard-rubber bezel, and the most basic technology. But a battery runtime of 14 hours and more! Who would buy such a laptop for a not exactly bargain price? Perhaps universities or colleges will be interested?

71% Review HP Compaq 15-a024sg Notebook

Price war. HP demands just 400 Euros (~$550) for the well-configured, gaming-capable Compaq 15-a024sg. Weaknesses cannot be excluded in view of the price, and thus, not only the battery runtimes are below average...

Review Asus R510CA-CJ862H Notebook

76% Review Asus R510CA-CJ862H Notebook

Temptation in red. From the technological point of view, the R510CA offers nothing more than your standard features. Noteworthy are the touchscreen and large hard drive. But the computer's big attraction is its red attire.

Review Asus P550CA-XO522G Notebook

76% Review Asus P550CA-XO522G Notebook

Entry-level business. Asus puts not one but two operating systems (Windows 7 Pro (64-bit) + Windows 8 Pro (64-bit)) in the P550CA-XO522G's box. Dedicated Windows 7 fans can use the laptop right away. Windows 8 first has to be installed via the included recovery DVD.

81% Review Acer Aspire E1-470P-6659 Notebook

Basically basic. Cramming as much computer as possible into a case for $400 is a challenging and often perilous task. With their Aspire E1-470P, Acer takes another swipe at low-cost leadership in the Windows touchscreen category of devices. Was it worth the effort?

Review Toshiba Portégé Z10t Convertible

80% Review Toshiba Portégé Z10t Convertible

Clipped wings. A Windows Convertible for 1700 Euros (~$2328) must have some highlights to offer. However, docking was a sobering experience for us, although the Z10t is basically a well-balanced bundle.

Review Toshiba Satellite U840T-101 Ultrabook

77% Review Toshiba Satellite U840T-101 Ultrabook

A bit late. Toshiba's ultrabook with touchscreen had been promised for the second quarter of 2013, but a test product only just reached us. An i5-3337U of the Ivy Bridge generation should ensure enough processing power and is supported by 8 GB of RAM. It's certainly a strong package of performance, but can the machine contend with Intel's newer competition based on Haswell?

Padbook. A small track point is the characteristic feature of Gigabyte's latest Windows convertible (Windows 8). The other components are also interesting: A Core i5 processor in combination with a Full HD IPS display and an attachable keyboard. Can the device convince us in practice?

76% Review Acer Aspire R7-571G-53338G75ass Convertible

Different by design. The Acer Aspire R7-571G does not follow classic notebook design guidelines. Thanks to the Ezel hinge, the notebook supports display positions that no other design is capable of offering. How the solution works on a day-to-day basis and how the internal components stack up are the subjects of our review.

76% Review HP ProBook 470 G0 (H6P56EA) Notebook

Big Business. The new HP ProBook 470 promises professional quality at a bargain price, but what is the catch? Despite a Core-i7 chip, a lot of memory and a dedicated Radeon GPU, this 17-inch notebook is available at prices starting at less than 800 Euros (~$1093).

Notebookcheck's Best of June 2013 - Notebooks

Haswell. The name of Intel's new CPU generation has been branded in our minds. After meticulous preparations, we reviewed 13 test samples with the new chip in June.

In addition, we tested many new high-end GeForce models, from GTX 760M to GTX 780M combined with Extreme quad-cores.
