Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n Nano Desktop Short Review

Lenovo ThinkCentre M90n Nano Desktop Short Review

Think small. How small can a full-fledged PC be? Lenovo is pushing that limit with the ThinkCentre M90n Nano, a full Windows desktop that can slide into your back pocket. Despite its diminutive size, it packs more than enough power for most users and may be a solid choice for a streaming box.

We find out in our test, what exactly the new Aorus 17 YA has to offer.

Lenovo ThinkPad P73 Laptop Review: Big workstation slowed down by poor heat management

87% Lenovo ThinkPad P73 Laptop Review: Big workstation slowed down by poor heat management

Surprisingly hot-headed. The highest level of performance – that is what the Lenovo ThinkPad P70 stands for. The recent Lenovo ThinkPad P73 contains Intel "Coffee Lake Refresh" CPUs and the Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000. In theory, this should guarantee an extremely high level of performance. In our comprehensive review however, the Lenovo ThinkPad P73 cannot fully deliver on its performance promise.

New isn't always better. Schenker is entering the next round with the Slim 15 and is now relying on Intel's latest Comet architecture and exciting features. A fast WLAN module and a colorful keyboard illumination adorn our configuration. However, the new and faster processor does not fully exploit its potential.

Two-times a smartphone. The G8X ThinQ is a foldable smartphone with a difference.

83% Sony Xperia 5 Smartphone Review: A handy handset despite having a 6-inch display

A smartphone with a cinema display and sub-par cameras. The Xperia 5 is not the first smartphone that Sony has released with a 21:9 display. We have already seen the Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 trying to distinguish themselves from their peers with this aspect ratio, and now Sony wants to persuade people that 21:9 is the future with the Xperia 5. Having such a tall display has proven practical in our experience, but the Xperia 5 falls short of expectations in some crucial areas, as our review will reveal.

The Porsche Design Ultra One, however, has two quirks that seriously interfere with longer work sessions. Our review will show what this is all about.

The device scores with an IPS touchscreen display, 16 GB of working memory (dual-channel mode), and silent operation. This is accompanied by a good battery life and two Thunderbolt-3 slots. For the whole package, you have to put almost 2000 Euros (~$2226; $1700 in the US) on the table.

Throttling Concept for the library. Acer advertises its brand-new ConceptD series as a premium, white multimedia system for creators. Plenty of features and a sleek design (as well as a high price) aim to impress multimedia creators. In this review, we try to determine whether the Concept(D) is successful in that regard.

79% HP Envy 17-ce1002ng Laptop Review: A slim 17-inch machine with mixed performance

A Comet Lake laptop with Whiskey Lake performance. The new HP Envy 17 is big, slim and features a powerful combination of dedicated graphics and a Comet Lake-U processor. While its footprint may make it slightly too large for use on the move, it should fit the bill as a multimedia desktop replacement. It is not all good news though, as our review will reveal.

An affordable, yet underwhelming Zen+ laptop. Acer's latest budget laptop sounds excellent on paper. The Aspire 5 A515-43-R057 retails for around €500 (~$554) and comes with a Zen+ APU, a 1 TB SSD and 8 GB of RAM. However, not all is at it seems with our test device, as our review below will reveal.

Apple Watch Series 5 Smartwatch Review: It can do more than any other smartwatch, but just not for that long

Almost perfect. Apple has made few changes to its Watch Series over the years. The original model had plenty going for it though, so that does not necessarily mean that Apple has fallen behind its competitors. On the contrary, the Apple Watch remains the best-selling smartwatch on the market, and by some distance. The Watch Series 5 is an excellent smartwatch too, but you may be taking a trip to the charger sooner than you may like.

Apple introduced the latest generation of its white earphones a few days ago, promising several improvements over existing AirPods. However, as iconic as its designs have been since the launch of the first iPod, the sound quality of Apple's earbuds have remained mediocre. Has the company finally mastered Hi-Fi audio quality or are the AirPods Pro just another step in the right direction?

A game-changer? AMD made its comeback into the CPU business with its Ryzen series not only on desktops but also on laptops. The company made a similar foray into the GPU market with its Navi desktop cards earlier this year, a move that it is trying to replicate on laptops with its Navi 14 GPUs. NVIDIA has dominated the upper midrange of laptop GPUs for a while, but AMD is looking to change that, offering consumers more choice in the process.

The Zenbook 15 is one of the very few laptops equipped with an Intel U-series CPU and a GTX 1650 Max-Q GPU for an impressive level of gaming performance relative to the compact chassis size. It strikes an excellent balance between the portability and long runtimes of a traditional Ultrabook while offering enough GPU power to play the latest games at 1080p.

Discrete gamer. Thanks to the Core i5-9300H processor and the GeForce GTX-1650 graphics core, the IdeaPad is able to bring all the current computer games smoothly to the matte 17.3-inch display (FHD, IPS). They are accompanied by a NVMe SSD, 16 GB of working memory, and a good battery life. Unfortunately, the working memory is only able to run in single-channel mode.

More pixels and less battery life. Like the ThinkPad X1 Extreme before it, the 14-inch ThinkPad T490 also gets a higher resolution WQHD panel with 100% AdobeRGB color-space coverage. The excellent image quality is countered by a reflective display surface and increased power consumption.

Ice(Lake)borne. Dell's latest XPS convertible is unlike most Ultrabooks or convertibles we've tested this year simply because it checks off a long laundry list of uncommon features: Ice Lake-U, MagLev keyboard, vapor chamber, 13.4-inch touchscreen, and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The result is a travel-friendly convertible with one of the brightest and most well-calibrated displays we've seen for its category. Unfortunately, you'll have to give up some upgrades along the way that may impact longevity.

Well, the smaller battery, display, RAM, and storage all suggest so, but the Note 10 is more than just a scaled-down Note 10+. The inclusion of an S Pen should still help the Note 10 appeal to business users, as will it being cheaper than the Note 10+ too.

The new model is a complete design overhaul of last year's Alienware m15 R1 that unfortunately feels more like a lateral step sideways instead of a big leap forward.

Ulefone Armor 6E

76% Ulefone Armor 6E Smartphone Review – Outdoor Phone with Bargain Potential

82% HP Pavilion Gaming 17 Review: Finally, a Quiet Gaming Laptop

A leaner Omen without the fluff. The Pavilion series isn't exactly home to HP's best laptops and yet the Pavilion Gaming 17 is one of the better gaming laptops we've seen from the manufacturer thus far. The system is surprisingly quiet and even sleek considering its price range.

82% HP Omen 15 Review: affordable entry-level gamer with decent battery life

Well balanced. Thanks to its Core i5-9300H CPU and GeForce GTX 1650 GPU the Omen 15 is capable of running all current games smoothly on its matte 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, and as a bonus it comes with an NVMe SSD and a decent battery life. If only the display was not so dim.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Review: The entry-level GPU finally comes with 8 GB of VRAM

The better RTX 2060! Nvidia launched an improved generation of its RTX GPUs shortly before AMD released its Navi-based graphics cards. We have taken a closer look at the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Super Founders Edition. The decision to put 8 GB of VRAM into the RTX 2060S was definitely the right one, this much we can say for sure. To learn all the rest, read our review and take a look at the benchmarks.

Mi 9 the third. After the Mi 9 and Mi 9 SE comes the Mi 9T, a device that takes the Mi 9 series in a different direction. The 9T has inherited many features from the Mi 9, but it distinguishes itself with its pop-up selfie camera, a 4,000 mAh battery and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Read on to find out how the 9T stacks up against its Mi 9 siblings.

Better display and slow processor. Apple pretty much ignored its MacBook Air for a couple of years and there was much speculation about the end of the series. Now, we get a completely redesigned model including a modern display. Is it an alternative to the more-expensive MacBook Pro 13 for many users, or is it somewhat redundant?

A tale of two screens. Asus' second stab at a touchscreen-touchpad hybrid is head and shoulders above the first generation ScreenPad on last year's ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 in terms of usability and display quality. A few hurdles remain including the impact on battery life, grainy matte overlay, and poor viewing angles.

87% Schenker XMG Core 17 (Core i7-9750H, GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, 144-Hz Display) Tongfang GK7CP6R Laptop Review

Unassuming gamer. The hardware of the Schenker XMG Core 17 brings all the current games smoothly to the matte 17.3-inch screen (144 Hz, FHD, IPS). This notebook can be configured very individually. For example, it offers space for up to three storage units (2x M.2-2280, 1x 2.5 in) and can handle up to 64 GB of working memory. In addition, the BIOS allows undervolting of the CPU and iGPU. While the notebook does not show any huge weaknesses, we could complain about the lack of a Thunderbolt-3 port.

The G8S ThinQ may have fancy camera tech, but it is otherwise a fairly run-of-the-mill flagship. However, read on to find out why we still think highly of LG’s latest attempt to disrupt the established order.

With the E595, Lenovo has now completely opted for AMD for the CPU and GPU. In addition, the manufacturer has improved on some points of criticism. Will the E595 become the best ThinkPad E?

Forsaken by the screen. The Lenovo ThinkPad T590 is a larger version of the popular ThinkPad T490. The bigger chassis offers some advantages and the ThinkPad T590 is the lightest 15.6-inch ThinkPad of the T series so far. Unfortunately, it is worse than its smaller sister model in one key aspect.

Runs and runs and runs...smoothly. The free-to-play MOBA, which saw the light of day almost 10 years ago and broke the 100-million-player mark in 2016, still remains very low-maintenance in 2019. Smoothly playable across the graphics card landscape of recent years, League of Legends also delights gamers with older hardware. However, one can't expect much in terms of graphics quality in such games.
