Schenker Vision 14 laptop in review: Now also available with the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti

88% Schenker Vision 14 laptop in review: Now also available with the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti

The Intel H35 quad-core CPU slows down the Vision 14... Schenker's Vision 14 is now also available with stronger 35-watt processors that are delivered with a liquid metal thermal compound by default. For more GPU performance, you can also get the optional GeForce RTX 3050 Ti with a 50-watt TGP. But does this actually work decently in the compact case?

LG Gram 15 (2021)

85% Review of the LG Gram 15Z90P: 1.1-kg (~2.4-lb) 15-inch laptop

80-Wh wonder. After seeing the 14-, 16- and 17-inch LG Grams, we were almost surprised to see the 15-inch model. The weight is the main feature here as well: 1.1 kg (~2.4 lb). The lightest 15-inch competitors weigh anywhere from 1.3 kg (~2.87 lbs) to 1.5 kg (~3.31 lbs). Read our review to learn if the LG Gram 15 can actually last the claimed 14 hours on a single battery charge.

Core i5 to the max. We are testing Dell's mainstream business laptop. Although the 14-inch device appears to include everything you can hope for, the clickpad is huge downgrade. In this review we will explore many aspects in detail, such as the impressive processor performance and the less impressive iGPU performance.

80% The Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 alternative: Alldocube iPlay 40H 10.4 tablet review

2000 x 1200 10.4-inch IPS touchscreen. A no-frills $189 USD Android tablet that focuses on reliability and general performance over flashy features and displays. There are a couple of extra things that would have made it even better, but the iPlay 40H still works well as an inexpensive family tablet.

Super quiet. Is $550 enough for a decent laptop these days? The new Inspiron 15 3511 comes with the 11th gen Core i5 CPU to make it nearly as fast as most pricier Ultrabooks, but you'll have to live with a handful of cut corners including the lack of even a USB-C port.

85% Schenker XMG Pro 17 with RTX 3080 (Clevo PC70HS) review: A throttled ultra-slim gaming laptop and workstation in one

More a workstation than a gaming laptop. Like its 15-inch sibling model, the new XMG Pro 17 also comes in an ultra-slim case, while still bringing an RTX 3080. To avoid potential problems with the cooling system, Schenker throttles this. We find out in this test, whether this concept succeeds and why the slim high-performance laptop is more of a workstation than a gaming device.

Stability and features over performance. The B360 is one of the few 13.3-inch rugged laptops in the market, but it doesn't skimp on accessible features or display quality. However, its use of an older Comet Lake-U processor means owners will be missing out on the more advanced features of Intel Tiger Lake.

YayyMD Advantage! The MSI Alpha 15 is one among the handful of AMD Advantage gaming laptops available. Powered by the Ryzen 7 5800H and Radeon RX 6600M, the Alpha 15 comes with the promise of achieving 100 fps at 1080p High in modern games. We find this to be largely true, giving laptops with the Core i7-11800H and the RTX 3060 a run for their money. However, there are areas where MSI had to compromise in order to strike a balance between price and performance.

GPU issues affect the user experience. The fourth generation of Lenovo’s multimedia laptop ThinkPad X1 Extreme introduces vapor chamber cooling to the series and enables more powerful GPUs, but is the GeForce RTX 3080 really worth the premium and is there a noticeable advantage over the RTX 3070?

Leopard in attack mode. If you want a proper gaming laptop with an RTX 3080 and Core i7, then this has to be a high-end model, right? Wait, you want it to cost less than 2,000 Euros? So, here we go, the 15-inch Leopard from MSI joins the battle! But can it live up to its potential? We put the budget gamer with high-end hardware through its paces and elicit all its weaknesses, which it should surely have in abundance at this price.

Schenker XMG Apex 15 in gaming laptop review: This time with laptop CPU, but still with desktop cooling

84% Schenker XMG Apex 15 in gaming laptop review: This time with laptop CPU, but still with desktop cooling

Where is the desktop CPU? The predecessor was equipped with a swappable socket CPU for desktops, wiped the floor with the competition in terms of performance, but was clearly too loud. The current Apex 15 uses a normal laptop CPU, but still retains some features from the predecessor. This has advantages and disadvantages, but which ones outweigh the others?

MagSafe, M1 Pro, Mini-LED with 120 Hz and a notch... Apple launched the new MacBook Pro 14 with its own M1 CPUs as well as the new Mini-LED display with 120 Hz. After some rather unsuccessful experiments like the touch bar and the butterfly keyboard, Apple reintroduces other features like the SD-card reader and MagSafe.

Xiaomi has won over the public with the 11T: The 6.67-inch smartphone offers high-end features including a 120 Hz display, a glass body, and fast charging at 67 watts, but it costs considerably less than the flagships of the competition. The 11T isn't always at the top, but it performs above average in many areas.

Maingear Vector Pro MG-VCP17 laptop review: 165 W GeForce RTX 3080 for ultrathin size

88% Maingear Vector Pro MG-VCP17 laptop review: 165 W GeForce RTX 3080 for ultrathin size

Great alternative to MSI, Asus or Razer. Super-thin gaming laptops are sexy and all, but they typically come with lower-power GPUs in the 100 W range. The Maingear Vector Pro bucks the trend by stuffing a 165 W GPU into a chassis the size of a Razer Blade Pro, but can it actually perform?

Expensive. The 2-in-1 Chromebook from Asus has a good hardware configuration, a backlit keyboard, and a USB-C port with Power Delivery. The IPS touchscreen display can be used both with fingers as well as with a separately purchasable stylus.

Is the KUU cool? There are a lot of Windows 10 tablets to choose from beyond the Microsoft ones. The KUU LeBook is perhaps the closest in terms of visual design and performance while costing potentially hundreds of dollars less, but it misses the mark in a few areas.

Chargeasap Flash Pro hands-on and review

The Flash Pro series of powerbanks has become another success story for its maker, Chargeasap. The OEM claims that it can handle normal charging for anything up to a MacBook on the go in the absence of a wall charger. Can its Pro variant uphold these claims in real life?

In addition to the GeForce RTX 3060 and a modern AMD Ryzen 5000 processor you also get a fast 165 Hz display.
