Face Off: Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro 13 vs. Asus Zenbook UX360CA vs. Dell Inspiron 13 7359

The $1000 13-inch convertible. The Core m Broadwell and Skylake series have made it possible to design even thinner and lighter notebooks powerful enough for basic home, school, and multimedia use. Add in 360-degree hinges and these can potentially double as a Windows tablet. We compare two from Lenovo and Asus to see how they stack up against a more "traditional" Skylake U-class convertible from Dell.

Kaby Lake (Core i7-7500U) Review: Skylake on Steroids

Surprisingly powerful. Not a new architecture and not a new process – but Intel's gently optimized Kaby Lake generation still manages a significant frequency and performance jump. We tested the new Core i7-7500U.

Pascal Debut. After many notebooks based on the brand new high-end GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 GPUs have passed through our hands, we can now take a look at the equally exciting GTX 1060. Is the 16 nm architecture also convincing in this case? The Schenker XMG P507 provides the answers.

Let the games begin. Asus sent us one of the first 15-inch notebooks with the extremely fast Pascal GPU GeForce GTX 1070. The informed reader expects big performance gains and is not disappointed.

More Middle-Class, Less Elite. HP shows their loyalty to AMD by using an AMD APU in their new subnotebook, the EliteBook 725 G3. Sadly, the price tag of roughly 1,000 Euros (~$1133) does not match the performance of this device. Our test model offered short battery life, a noisy fan and a dark screen with low contrast and poor viewing angles.
