83% Asus PU551JH Workstation Review

Quiet. Without making a big fuss, Asus has included a mobile 15-inch workstation in its product line.

We have tested it extensively to see if this is the case.

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.

85% HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 Convertible Review

You get what you pay for. HP demands less than 400 Euros (~$446) for the basic configuration of its ProBook 455 G2, which recommends it for entering the world of semi-professional office laptops. Unfortunately, the weak hardware slows down the user far too often.
