Dell XPS 13 (Early 2015) Notebook Review

88% Dell XPS 13 (Early 2015) Notebook Review

Simply brilliant. Dell now offers the XPS 13 with a non-touch display and a more mainstream resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels for a much more affordable price. Not only is the new display brighter, but it's matte as well, which improves outdoor usability. The remainder of the hardware is very similar to the QHD+ version, so the new model inherits both its strengths and weaknesses.

HP Envy 15 x360 Convertible Review

75% HP Envy 15 x360 Convertible Review

Twisted. The Envy 15 x360 is almost an exotic species, as 15.6-inch convertibles are few and far between. HP uses the computer's attractive case to tempt customers, but the manufacturer is neglectful when it comes to the hardware.

Lenovo ThinkPad T550 Notebook Review

87% Lenovo ThinkPad T550 Notebook Review

Two are better than one. Lenovo's business newcomer features two batteries rather than one. That enables a battery life that makes the contenders green with envy in view of its powerful hardware. An LTE modem ensures the required flexibility, data is protected extensively, and the input devices are again close to perfect. All the more aggravating that it was not enough for an IPS screen.
