75% HP 14-r003ng Notebook Review
Classy low-cost gadget. HP's 14 exterior makes a premium-line impression. However, the price of just 350 Euros betrays that the performance reserves will not be able to meet any special requirements. Is it a good compromise or are looks deceiving?

Alluring. Asus aims at tech enthusiasts with its new 15-inch Zenbook generation. The flat aluminum unibody houses a standard-voltage i7 processor paired with an upper middle-class Nvidia graphics card. The highlight of this model seems to be the 4K panel. It offers high resolutions, great colors, high contrast and wide viewing angles. Is this the winner?

Agonizing. Lenovo will not win any awards with the abysmal performance of the new AMD E-6010 dual-core and the integrated R2 graphics. But then, its price is cheap. To what extent the office snail exhausted the tester's patience, and whether multimedia and gaming is even remotely possible is revealed in our report.

Work computer. A matte screen, good battery life, a comfortable keyboard, maintenance hatches and an unoccupied mSATA slot -- clearly, HP wants to stake their claim on the market for inexpensive office devices. With their 350-G1 line, they may very well have succeeded.

Tight Fit. Intel's 'cost reduced' Baytrail-T platform has resulted in a sharp drop in the price of entry level Windows tablets but with that comes restricted RAM and storage. The Point of View Mobii Wintab 800W has 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. How does a low-cost Window tablet perform with these restrictions?

Brillant. Acer's smallest convertible is now available with a Full-HD display. The price difference is only 30 Euro (~$37) and seems to be well worth it. But is the battery life is shorter than before and how fast is the new CPU? In our review, we try to answer both questions and take a detailed look at the display as well.

84% Nokia Lumia 830 Smartphone Review
Farewell Nokia. Microsoft promises customers an affordable flagship smartphone with the Lumia 830. However, the technical specs position the device in the mid-range. A small quad-core and a screen with a low HD resolution is simply not premium range. On the other hand, the build and choice of materials will satisfy the discerning. The biggest drawback is the price.

Pixel machine. Outsider - trailblazer? While the competition is equipping their high-definition luxury-range with Nvidia GPUs, the Japanese manufacturer relies on AMD's Radeon R9. Will the combination of a 4K screen, fast computing cores, build, and ergonomics result in a round bundle that deserves our purchase recommendation?
