Fujitsu LifeBook E554 Notebook Review

81% Fujitsu LifeBook E554 Notebook Review

Not without faults. The Lifebook E554 is primarily aimed at corporate customers. The price level ranging from 600 to 100 Euros also might make it interesting for private users. We have the current top model of the line at hand. It wants to entice potential customers with plenty of computing power, an IPS screen, a solid state drive, a 3G modem, and a very good battery life.

Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-75 Notebook (A10-7300) Review Update

73% Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-75 Notebook (A10-7300) Review Update

Two are better than one. Lenovo only demands 550 Euros for its extensively configured IdeaPad Z50-75, which not only features AMD's latest quad-core APU, but also plenty of storage and a total of two graphic chips. Just how well does the dual-graphics technology fare in real-world use?

Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1TD Notebook Review Update

80% Toshiba Satellite L50-B-1TD Notebook Review Update

Now with SSD. The Satellite offers everything that an all-round multimedia notebook should: Alongside a Core i7 processor, the device is equipped with a graphics core powerful enough to render games and a fast solid state drive. An IPS display with stable viewing angles also joins the ranks. But at almost 900 Euros (~$1100), this is no budget device.

Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130 Tablet Review Update

78% Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130 Tablet Review Update

Stuck in a rut. The Venue 11 Pro was conceived as a tablet for use in the business environment. Dell outfitted the device with a Full HD IPS display and made it easy to access the tablet's inner workings. A quick SSD and a Core i5 processor do the device credit on paper too. But all told, can the tablet win us over?

15-inch reference? The XMG P505 from Schenker Technologies is supposed to close the gap between big 17-inch systems (Asus G751, MSI GT72) and ultra-thin compact gamers like the Gigabyte P34G v2. We already reviewed the configuration with the GTX 970M, now we have a closer look at the GTX 980M.

Problem? No Problem! A laptop has to be robust, secure, and always ready in industrial environments. Dell now presents its Latitude 14 Rugged 5454 in the Dell-Latitude-Rugged-Extreme lineup. It lacks the "Extreme" in its name, which leads to a drastically reduced price.

78% Acer TravelMate P256-M-39NG Notebook Review

Full HD Premium. Acer attracts a lot of office users with its conservative, yet solid and powerful notebooks. Usually, the price-performance ratio is just right, but for this to be true for our test model, which uses the Intel Core i3-4005U and a Full HD display, the price would have to drop quite a lot.

Success. Intel's Bay Trail platform and Windows with Bing enable manufacturers to build cheaper and cheaper notebooks and tablets.

Is it a dream come true? Can we now expect to see high-performance, passively cooled Windows tablets?
