Kaveri @ low cost. The IdeaPad Z50-75 is available for a low 400 Euros (~$501) without a Windows operating system. The buyer gets a quad-core processor, dual-graphics solution from AMD, and a 1 TB hard drive. An irresistible bargain?

76% Toshiba Satellite S70-B-106 Notebook Review Update
The successor. The new version of the Satellite S70 doesn't rely on a GeForce GT 740M chip anymore, but on a Radeon R9 M265X graphics core which enhances gaming performance significantly. The notebook still has a Core-i7 processor, a Full HD display and a Blu-ray burner. Does Toshiba offer a successful all-rounder?

Fujitsu LifeBook T734 Convertible Review
76% Fujitsu LifeBook T734 Convertible Review
Old-school business. Versatility and mobility are very important aspects of Fujitsu's latest convertible. Digitizer and multi-touch are new input methods and UMTS provides the necessary mobility. But it is not enough for an impressive result.

Asus Transformer Book Flip TP550LA-CJ070P Convertible Review
73% Asus Transformer Book Flip TP550LA-CJ070P Convertible Review
Disappointing display. Asus wants to liberate buyers from having to decide between a tablet and a notebook, unifying the two into one device. Unfortunately, the result in the form of the Transformer Book Flip did not turn out so well.

Toshiba Satellite L50-B-182 Notebook Review
80% Toshiba Satellite L50-B-182 Notebook Review
Multimedia machine. The spec sheet of the L50 is quite impressive. Toshiba's Satellite seems to absolutely satisfy private users with a strong CPU, a 1 TB hard drive, a graphics card from AMD, and a DVD burner. All that is available for a reasonable street price of 1000 Euros (~$1263). Where is the catch?

Lenovo B50-45 Notebook Review Update
69% Lenovo B50-45 Notebook Review Update
Below average. Lenovo decided to use the new Beema APU from AMD in its B50-45. Only 390 Euros (~$494) is due for the simple office notebook with a size of 15.6-inches. However, the computer definitely reflects its low price tag.

Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 Tablet Review
73% Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 Tablet Review
Tabloid tablet. The Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 features a 4k IPS display panel and is large enough to work with DIN A3 / Tabloid-sized drawings. At a price of about 4500 Euros (~$5800), the tablet is way too expensive to appeal to the average consumer.

Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112
72% Toshiba Satellite Pro R50-B-112 Notebook Review
Under-dressed. There are plenty of low-priced office laptops. Toshiba now refreshes its bleak mass of Satellite Pro models with a new and thinner casing. Is taking a look worthwhile or is just old wine in new skins?

83% HP EliteBook 755 G2 (J0X38AW) Notebook Review
Promoted to business class. A premium-range laptop for corporate customers that relies on a processor from AMD - we haven't seen that for quite a while now. HP sees its new EliteBook product line as an affordable alternative for the seemingly omnipotent Intel competition without affecting the quality standard. Will this experiment be successful?

Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LN Convertible Review
73% Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LN Convertible Review
Turn it around. The Asus Transformer Book Flip TP500LN looks like a normal 15.6-inch notebook, but it can be transformed into a tablet in just a few simple steps. So far, all convertibles of this size had to make compromises. Read the review to find out why this device is not completely free of them, either.

HP 15-g005ng Notebook Review
74% HP 15-g005ng Notebook Review
Quiet operator. HP's 15-g005ng is powered by AMD's new Beema APU. The Beema APUs should shrink Intel's market share in the budget sector. Is the APU's power sufficient for this scheme?

HP EliteBook 745 G2 Notebook Review
82% HP EliteBook 745 G2 Notebook Review
Kaveri for business. A price of approximately 900 Euros (~$1166) should make HP's newest 14-inch business laptop appealing. The company ships a slim, elegant casing fused with multiple business features and good input devices for this price. The laptop is powered by a new Kaveri APU from AMD. Unfortunately, the screen is again one of the biggest shortcomings, like in many other laptops.

MSI GT72 Notebook Review
87% MSI GT72 Notebook Review
Muscleman. Cooler Boost, Super RAID, Matrix Display: MSI uses many fancy words for the GT72. We took the brand-new gaming notebook to check the marketing slogans. Can the high-end machine compete with the rivals from Asus, Alienware and Clevo?

75% HP Split x2 13-m210eg Convertible Review
Between worlds. The new HP Split x2 does not require a choice between a tablet and a notebook since the convertible combines both types of devices. Besides an IPS display, the convertible attracts attention with very good battery runtimes as well as decent input devices.

75% Lenovo IdeaPad G50-45 Notebook Review Update
Value for money marvel with an AMD core? For a low 370 Euros (~$479), Lenovo's G50-45 entry-level model has quite a few highlights: a quad-core APU and a hybrid hard drive are real buying incentives in this category. But is that enough to compete with rivals based on Intel technology?

Low in contrast. Gaming-suitable laptops no longer have to be a costly affair these days. Asus also follows this trend with its X555LN. For 500 Euros (~$646), the buyer gets a 15.6-inch device with a Core i5 processor and GeForce 840M graphics core. The price is even below 500 Euros (~$646) without a Windows operating system.
