Acer Predator 17 G9-791 Notebook Review

85% Acer Predator 17 G9-791 Notebook Review

The hunt continues. The Predator 17 is the second device from Acer's new gaming series. Despite the bulky chassis, the cooling solution cannot completely convince us.

Dell XPS 15 9550 (Core i7, FHD) Notebook Review

88% Dell XPS 15 9550 (Core i7, FHD) Notebook Review

Finally on its feet. After a series of software issues, we decided to check up once again on a different SKU of the XPS 15 to see if those problematic areas have been patched up. The results are outstanding.

Lenovo U31-70 80M5003EGE Notebook Review

81% Lenovo U31-70 80M5003EGE Notebook Review

Lack of endurance. Lenovo's 13.3-inch subnotebook attracts with its good connectivity. However, the battery life is, unfortunately, just middling.

Acer Aspire ES1-521-87DN Notebook Review

77% Acer Aspire ES1-521-87DN Notebook Review

Overpriced. The Aspire cannot boast with exceedingly high computing power. Then again, it pleases with a very low operating noise and decent keyboard. However, Acer demands the ridiculous price of 500 Euros (~$557) for the laptop.

The preemptive listing confirms many previous rumors and a suggested retail price of 230 Euros.
Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD Notebook Review

75% Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD Notebook Review

Low-cost Core i3. Laptops from the low-cost sector are mostly equipped with Braswell processors or AMD APUs nowadays. Neither of these is the strongest of their kind. Lenovo has taken a different approach and installed a Core i3 processor from the Broadwell generation in its IdeaPad.

Acer Aspire R13 R7-372T Convertible Review

86% Acer Aspire R13 R7-372T Convertible Review

Now with Thunderbolt 3. The Aspire R13's main distinguishing factor is the quad-hinge design, which allows for several different display positions and hence operating modes. Even sans those hinges, the Aspire would still appeal, as it does well in almost all categories. Along with an update to the Skylake-generation of processors, the new model now also contains a Thunderbolt 3 port.

Rise of the Tomb Raider Notebook Benchmarks

Rise of the Tomb Raider Notebook Benchmarks

Precision landing. After several rather poor PC ports (Batman Arkham Knight, Just Cause 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 3, etc.), the latest iteration of Tomb Raider finally leaves a better impression on the PC. We tested the action title on multiple notebook GPUs and checked the performance. Update: GT630M, HD 4000, M385X, Iris Pro 5200, 920M, M280X, Kaveri R7 added.
Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

83% Asus ZenBook Pro UX501VW Notebook Review

Skylake all-rounder. The popular UX501 series gets Skylake, DDR4, USB Type-C with Thunderbolt 2.0, and a few other minor changes. Is this a vast improvement over last year's Haswell model?
Intel Core i7-6700HQ | NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

74% Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ACZ Notebook Review

Badly designed. Even though it might not be the fault of the processor manufacturer, AMD-based notebooks do not have the best reputation. The reviewed model of the new Lenovo Y700 confirms this statement. The alleged gaming notebook is hardly suitable for gaming, although the performance should be sufficient in theory.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 20FD001XGE Convertible Review

86% Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 260 20FD001XGE Convertible Review

Predetermined breaking point. Does the Yoga 260 follow in the footsteps of the ThinkPad X250? Is it the better ThinkPad subnotebook thanks to its various modes? Lenovo provides reasons for criticism. This is surprising and unexpected in view of the otherwise apparently 100% well-conceived ThinkPad.
Intel Core i7-6500U | Intel HD Graphics 520 | 12.5" | 1.3 kg
Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation Review

88% Lenovo ThinkPad P50 Workstation Review

Also a success with 15 inches? Following our review of the ThinkPad P70, we have a look at the smaller ThinkPad P50 from Lenovo. The two devices are very similar in many respects, but there are also important differences. Those include the display as well as the more complex maintenance, but also the longer battery runtimes. Our review unit also has a problem with the Turbo Boost most of the time.
Intel Core i7-6820HQ | NVIDIA Quadro M2000M | 15.6" | 2.6 kg
Lenovo G70-80 80FF00H0GE Notebook Review

76% Lenovo G70-80 80FF00H0GE Notebook Review

Desk worker. Lenovo's G70-80 is an inexpensive office device for your desk. The notebook does not set any performance records, but it is sufficient in practice. There are no major complaints for a price of 400 Euros (~$435).

HP Spectre x2 12-a003ng (K3D42EA) Notebook Review

84% HP Spectre x2 12-a003ng (K3D42EA) Notebook Review

All-in-one PC? We are not talking about a heavy laptop here, but rather an 850 gram (~1.9 lb) tablet that aims to emulate a full-sized PC with its fold-out stand and sleeve keyboard. Two Type C ports herald the start of the new generation of cabling. But just how can a flat-screen be connected?

84% Gigabyte P34W v5 Xotic PC Edition Notebook Review

Fifth time's the charm. The latest 14-inch refresh comes new with Skylake, DDR4, HDMI 2.0, USB Type-C, and a WQHD display option. Are these updates major enough to get users over the fence?

HP EliteBook 745 G3 (FHD) Notebook Review

84% HP EliteBook 745 G3 (FHD) Notebook Review

Right down to business. Just last week, we evaluated HP’s new 745 G3 update with WQHD IPS screen and Windows 7 preinstalled. Today’s configuration features a lower-end 1080p panel, but it’s also correspondingly more affordable. How does it hold up against the bevy of available business choices?

Dell Precision 7710 Workstation Review

88% Dell Precision 7710 Workstation Review

High performer. Dell has recently completely revised its big mobile 17-inch workstation, which brings many innovations in the new model year. Apart from a new chassis, especially new interfaces, processors, graphics chips, and displays offer a significantly added value. We have tested in detail how the Dell Precision 7710 actually performs.

Hello, Lumia! The new Windows flagship is finally here. Besides powerful components, you also get great features like Windows Hello and Continuum. The biggest drawback of the device is the software, because Windows 10 Mobile does not seem to be quite ready yet.

Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 700 Convertible Review

87% Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 700 Convertible Review

The superior Surface Pro? With its IdeaPad Miix 700, Lenovo aims to win potential Surface Pro 4 buyers. A keyboard dock and ActivePen are included and do not have to be purchased separately. The other equipment is also appropriate: A bright, high-contrast screen and fast SSD are on board. The installed Core M processor ensures noiseless operation. The entire bundle is even cheaper than a comparable Surface Pro 4 package.

Xotic PC Asus G752VY Notebook Review

89% Xotic PC Asus G752VY Notebook Review

Vapor cooler. After recently checking out the "entry-level" configuration with the G752VT, it's now time to move up to the G752VY with Asus' vaunted vapor cooling solution. Is this really a revolution for notebooks or just another empty marketing term?

86% MIFcom EG7 (Clevo N170RF) Notebook Review

Performance boost. TThe GeForce GTX 965M, which thus far has rarely been the graphics processor of choice for laptop manufacturers, has received a new breath of life. Nvidia's update has significantly increased the GPU's maximum clock rate. But how significant is the difference in performance compared to the 2015 version? Our question exactly. We used the MIFcom EG7 to uncover the answer.

MSI WT72-6QME Workstation Review

87% MSI WT72-6QME Workstation Review

Behemoth for Professionals. MSI’s WT72 now sports updated hardware in the form of a Skylake Xeon processor and a more powerful Nvidia Quadro GPU. The other specs remain largely the same and the workstation thus remains a solid choice for CAD work and 3D modelling.
Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5 | NVIDIA Quadro M5000M | 17.3" | 3.9 kg
Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

89% Lenovo ThinkPad P70 Workstation Review

The return of the 17-inch workstation. Lenovo now offers a 17-inch workstation for the first time in almost five years. Contrary to the current trend, however, you do not just get a consumer device with professional components. Was it worth the wait?
Intel Core i7-6820HQ | NVIDIA Quadro M3000M | 17.3" | 3.6 kg
HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

85% HP EliteBook 745 G3 Notebook Review

Forget cheap. A high-end laptop based on AMD hardware - we have not seen that for quite some time. HP dares this experiment, and installs the fastest Carrizo APU alongside an SSD and a WQHD IPS panel in its EliteBook 745 G3. But just how well can the 1300 Euro (~$1404) machine stand up to the Intel competition?

Schenker W706 (Clevo P771DM) Workstation Review

87% Schenker W706 (Clevo P771DM) Workstation Review

Powerhouse. Schenker's mobile workstation models traditionally signify high performance for a fair price. In particular the big 17-inch W706 leaves little to be desired in terms of performance. We have extensively tested how the recently refreshed powerhouse performs in practice.

Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

86% Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

Small rocket. Serious gaming devices with a 14-inch screen are rare; the majority of gamers prefers a larger screen instead of a higher mobility. At least the compact dimensions do not prevent extreme performance, which is proven by Schenker's new device. Chassis and input devices are great. So the only thing we have to find out is whether the display, sound and emissions can meet the high expectations as well.

MSI GS40 6QE Phantom Notebook Review

83% MSI GS40 6QE Phantom Notebook Review

Hot performance dwarf. Skylake quad-core, GTX 970M and a decent 14-inch display: MSI’s device in the pretty narrow segment of ultra-mobile gaming notebooks can meet all the performance expectations. So much performance does, however, require some compromises in other areas.

86% Toshiba Portege Z30t-B1320W10 Notebook Review

Old dog, new tricks. The latest Z30t from Toshiba is yet again nearly identical to its brethren from two years ago, though this time, it’s sporting a Broadwell chipset and a 1080p touchscreen with antiglare filter. Are these changes enough to keep pace with its fierce competition in the business space?
