Beauty isn't everything. Toshiba's Satellite S50-B-12U features a classy aluminum design. The thin, lightweight notebook is available for 700 Euros (~$846), including a dedicated AMD graphics card. But appearance doesn't make the man -- or the notebook -- so is there more hidden within that beautiful exterior? Our review reveals the answer.

89% Asus G751JY-T7009H Notebook Review

Gaming champion 2014. Asus now uses the GTX 980M as well and offers a very successful and extremely fast ROG gaming notebook in a reworked 17-inch chassis. MSI's GT72 2QE is one rival with even better specifications, but the top version is also 50% more expensive. Our test determines the winner in the clash of the titans.

79% HP ProBook 430 G2 Notebook Review Update

A round bundle. The 13.3-inch size alongside a swift solid state drive and good battery life commends the ProBook 430 G2 as a portable companion. The laptop's screen proves to be its primary weakness.

78% Fujitsu Lifebook U574 Ultrabook Review

Deceptive. Slim and good-looking business laptops are possible nowadays. The non-glare touchscreen of Fujitsu's Lifebook U574 is rare, though. Is it only smoke and mirrors or a solid business subnotebook that meets all fundamental criteria?

Two are better than one. Lenovo only demands 550 Euros (~$669) 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 graphics 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 have already reviewed the configuration with the GTX 970M, now we have a closer look at the GTX 980M.

Upgrade or downgrade? HP's new G2-version of their 17-inch business and multimedia hybrid features updated hardware components.

How the changes impact performance, battery life, and picture quality is the subject of our review.

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.
