Convincing. The Huawei Y7 aims to convince its buyers with a metal case, a strong processor, and a large battery. While these assets are good, the competition in the 200-Euro price range (~$238) is strong. You can find out in our test how the Huawei Y7 fares.

We check out the entry-level Sager NP5852 gaming notebook to see how to stacks up against previous generation Maxwell offerings.

Max-Q goes to work. MSI's updated WS63VR 7RL brings Nvidia's new Max-Q design to the GPU giant's Quadro line. How well does the Max-Q philosophy benefit a powerful professional-grade graphics card, especially with regards to heat and power management?

Bristol Ridge swan song. What should be one of the last Bristol Ridge gaming notebooks of 2017 before the push for mobile Ryzen shows us why AMD notebooks have been such a failure. An old plastic chassis, cheap TN panel, and weak CPU performance don't do the Polaris GPU any favors.

SSD slip up. If the last cubic centimeters of volume and a few hundred grams more or less are unimportant, the new 13-inch laptop will be more than a useful companion as it fuses enough power with a decent battery life and comes with the usual security features. However, the moderate price faces some not exactly trivial points of criticism.

Team Fortress 2 - Notebook and Desktop Benchmarks

A 10-year old strategy shooter Despite its advanced age, TF2 remains to be one of the most popular games on Steam. This is probably due to the fair free-to-play model and the moderate system requirements. The fast-paced 3D shooter is nevertheless quite a challenge, especially for cheap entry-level laptops and Windows tablets. More often than not, it is the processor and not the graphics card that leads to a jerky reproduction and unplayable frame rates. We tested the performance on various laptops, tablets, and desktops in the following benchmark check.

Is the Core the ultimate performance accessory, or is there a worm in it? The first product to offer a complete external GPU solution over Thunderbolt 3 (TB3), Razer's "Core" is still one of the most popular graphics docks available. It uses a TB3 interface attached to an older, more compatible TI82 controller, and so should be compatible with nearly any laptop with a TB3 port (not just Razer's). We benchmark the Core and Nvidia's latest Pascal line of GPUs with the Core and the Blade to see if the juice is worth the squeeze.

87% Lenovo ThinkPad L570 (7200U, Full HD) Laptop Review

Kaby Lake upgrade. The ThinkPad L570 is first and foremost a Kaby Lake upgrade. The new CPU generation brings a slight improvement in performance and is responsible for the considerable increase in battery runtime. Our test unit is sold without an operating system.

HP Pavilion 15t-bc200 X7P44AV (7700HQ, UHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

79% HP Pavilion 15t-bc200 X7P44AV (7700HQ, UHD, GTX 1050) Laptop Review

A sharper image… The latest Pavilion 15t to make the trip through our labs features all the same amenities of the previous configuration, but accompanied now instead by a higher-resolution display. Could this be what the Pavilion needed to earn top marks?

Lenovo ThinkPad T570 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review

86% Lenovo ThinkPad T570 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review

More compact. Lenovo has equipped its 15-inch business classic with a new case and offers an attractive package in many areas. However, there are still some performance bugs, and the Chinese manufacturer is still using a mediocre Full HD panel.

85% Acer Aspire VX5-591G (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050 Ti) Laptop Review

Limited fun. Actually, Acer's new multimedia laptop designed for gaming is convincing in most aspects - only that the conventional hard drive does not really match to the high-performance technology and it really slowed things down in the test. We recommend opting for another version or retrofitting it with an SSD.

Huawei P10 Lite Smartphone Review

85% Huawei P10 Lite Smartphone Review

Clever alternative. The Huawei P10 Lite mid-range smartphone costs only about half as much as the Huawei P10 with a Leica camera, but has otherwise much in common with the high-end meteorite. Our test shows what ultimately is the difference and who should choose which of the P10 models.

Nomu S30 Smartphone Review

77% Nomu S30 Smartphone Review

Robust multimedia companion. With the S30, Nomu offers a smartphone equipped with powerful technology that, due to its low price in relation to the hardware offered, makes for a competitor to affordable multimedia and outdoor smartphones that should not be underestimated.

Lenovo ThinkPad X270 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review

85% Lenovo ThinkPad X270 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review

A fiery temper within a compact design. If the largest PC manufacturer had it their way, the Lenovo X270 would become the ultimate mobile companion. In our detailed review, you will find out why there might be better alternatives after all, and why Lenovo should change a few things for the next ThinkPad X2xx.

Asus X555DA (A10-8700P, FHD) Laptop Review

73% Asus X555DA (A10-8700P, FHD) Laptop Review

Slow and outdated. AMD's Carrizo platform has not aged well. Performance is slower than a U-class Intel processor while offering shorter battery life and an overall poorer experience.

Razer Blade 2017

89% Razer Blade 2017 (GTX 1060, 7700HQ, Full-HD) Laptop Review

I Am What I Am. The Razer Blade combines great performance with good mobility and a healthy dose of design. The result is an appealing notebook which weighs in at less than 2 kg and measures less than 20 mm thick. The price is not for the faint of the heart, however.

84% Asus ASUSPRO P4540UQ (7200U, 940MX, Full-HD) Laptop Review

Untiring. Asus is also active in the area of business notebooks. The well-equipped 15.6-inch model ASUSPRO P4540UQ challenges the established models of the competition. In terms of battery runtimes, Asus can score a victory.

X62 Laptop Review

X62 Laptop Review

A Rejuvenated Classic? The X62 is a third-party custom-made successor to Lenovo's beloved X61 sub-notebook. Upgraded with a 5th generation Intel chipset and rare 4:3 SXGA+ IPS display, does the X62 meet the high standards its ThinkPad heritage demands among modern competitors? Or is it an amateurish disappointment that is best left in the past?

79% Asus ZenFone Go Smartphone Review

Go, ZenFone, go! Even lower mid-range devices have to have special features today. This is why Asus' ZenFone Go comes with an ergonomic design, HD screen, and removable battery. In this report, we will clarify if the affordable ZenFone Go is convincing.

HTC U Play Smartphone Review

83% HTC U Play Smartphone Review

Play nice. HTC's U Play is a mid-range smartphone with a very nice casing and some highlights: for example, HTC installs a personal assistant called Sense Companion. But is the U Play's everyday suitability also convincing?

Getting the hang of it. The ThinkPad Yoga 370 is Lenovo’s first 13.3-inch laptop in its ThinkPad Yoga series and is an attempt to simplify the line-up. Our extensive review shows how Lenovo succeeded and why we liked the ThinkPad Yoga 370.

82% Nexoc G739 (Clevo N870HK1) Laptop Review

Large entry-level gamer. The Nexoc G739 is a 17.3-inch laptop with a strong Kaby Lake Core-i7 and the new Pascal GPU GeForce GTX 1050 Ti. But the downside of the good performance is high emissions.

Gigabyte Aero 14 (7700HQ, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

86% Gigabyte Aero 14 (7700HQ, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

Breezy marathon runner. The Aero 14 is Gigabyte's first attempt at a mobile gaming laptop. The recipe for this seems quite simple, really. Start with high-end hardware, a well-made aluminum case, add a WQHD display and season to taste with a surprisingly capable battery. This much we can tell already: it performs very well but even this jack of all trades doesn't come without compromises.

87% Dell Latitude 7480 (7600U, FHD) Laptop Review

Business as usual. With its redesigned chassis, lighter weight and much-improved battery life, the upper-class Latitude once again ticks all the right check boxes when it comes to business notebooks. The 14-inch 7480 is equipped with current-generation hardware, offers great performance and features a top-notch keyboard. Coil whine is very noticeable, however.

79% ODYS Vario Pro 12 (Z8350, HD) Convertible Review

Pen input. The convertible from Odys brings an active pen with it which allows simple use of the Windows Ink functionality. This is accompanied by a quiet operation, good battery runtimes, and an IPS screen. With a price tag of around 260 Euros (~$276) the device is also affordable.

Spectre spectacle. HP introduced the redesigned Spectre x360 FHD last November with the promise of a 4K UHD version in early 2017. The manufacturer has finally delivered with the Spectre x360 13-ac033dx, though the 4K SKU will cost a hefty $1600 USD.

90% Apple iPad (2017) Tablet Review

Striking Update. Samsung's latest reincarnation of its hip mid-range Galaxy A3 smartphone not only features an updated glass and metal unibody design but also significant improvements under the hood, for example increased processing power and improved camera performance. Will this be enough to show its competitors who's the boss?

3:2 Surface. With its QHD+ display and Kaby Lake 15-watt SOC, Lenovo’s IdeaPad Miix 720 represents formidable competition for the Microsoft Surface. But the unbalanced fans and low-quality microphone spoil the 12-inch model for us.
