Xgimi Elfin miniature projector hands-on

The Xgimi Elfin miniature projector is a compact but feature-rich projector. With an 800 ANSI lumen LED and loud Harman/Kardon speakers, the Elfin makes a great living room projector. The lack of a battery is a noticeable downside.

Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD laptop review: With a matte 4K LCD and Ryzen 5000

85% Lenovo ThinkPad P14s G2 AMD laptop review: With a matte 4K LCD and Ryzen 5000

First AMD ThinkPad with a UHD display. Until now, the 4K UHD displays had a glossy surface in the 14-inch ThinkPads, and the AMD Ryzen models of the ThinkPad T14 and its siblings were not offered with 4K displays at all. This changes now with the Lenovo ThinkPad P14s Gen 2 AMD with a Ryzen 5000 and a UHD monitor that has a matte surface to boot.

Uneven package. The Inspiron 15 5518 offers a Core i5-11300H processor, a GeForce-MX450 GPU and 8 GB of working memory. The latter works in single-channel mode. Positive: The notebook delivers very good battery runtimes and offers space for two NVMe SSDs.

Slim at all costs? The MSI GS76 Stealth is one of the slimmest gaming laptops on the market. Despite the thin build, MSI packs a GeForce RTX 3080 under the hood of the 11UH-074 premium model that we tested. Find out here whether this strategy was successful.

Core i3 for 500 Euros. With the F15 Pro, the Chinese manufacturer Teclast offers a 15-inch laptop with an aluminum case and Core i3 processor from Intel. There are also enough ports and an IPS display. What else can you expect for around 500 Euros (~$588)?

Looks good, but cheap parts. The CoreBook X Pro is the least expensive 15.6-inch laptop you can find with a 120 Hz panel. The catch, however, is you'll have to deal with substantial cut corners to major aspects of the system.

You get what you pay for. The low asking price for a bright 10.1-inch 1080p tablet running on the latest Android sounds like a steal until you discover that its performance is less-than-stellar even during the most simplest of tasks.

79% MSI Katana GF66 11UG review: A gaming laptop with wasted potential

Limited performance. Despite being equipped with top hardware, this is what the MSI Katana GF66 delivers. After several benchmarks in our test, the question presents itself whether MSI cut corners in the wrong places. The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 and the Intel Core i7-11800H are unable to make use of their full performance potential.

Many steps forward, a few steps back. Acer upgraded the TravelMate P6 lineup to offer 16:10 displays, Intel Evo-based Tiger Lake underpinnings, enhanced security, and more. We have a pre-production model of the TravelMate P614P-52 with us and have put it through its paces to see how exactly Acer plans to take on competing business laptops in 2021.

Lenovo ThinkBook 16p in laptop review: A crowd-pleaser if you're ready for some compromises

87% Lenovo ThinkBook 16p in laptop review: A crowd-pleaser if you're ready for some compromises

Multimedia, workstation, or perhaps gaming? Lenovo itself advertises the 16-inch ThinkBook as a "powerful creativity tool" and a "business laptop"; after all, the origins of the ThinkBook series lie in the office segment. However, with an RTX 3060 and a powerful Ryzen processor, the series also penetrates the gaming segment. Is the device a versatile hidden gem for gamers and creators alike?

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?

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.

Budget laptops are getting better. On paper, everything about the Gateway is lucrative from its affordable price point, Tiger Lake Core i5 CPU, 16 GB RAM, 1080p IPS display, and 512 GB SSD. Dig a little deeper, however, and some of the drawbacks cut a bit too deep.

Almost a Mi 11. The Redmi K40 Pro+ comes to Europe under the name Mi 11i, and it plays in the big leagues in terms of performance. Just like the flagships of the Mi 11 series, the Mi 11i also features the high-end Snapdragon 888 SoC. Only the price takes a different direction. The Mi 11i starts at a price of 100 Euros (~$117) less than the very similarly equipped Xiaomi Mi 11, and the trend is sharply downwards.

Fan heater. The Modern 14 scores with a Core i7-1165G7 processor, GeForce MX450 graphics core, and 16 GB of working memory. However, the latter is only able to operate in single-channel mode. In addition, the laptop heats up very significantly under heavy load and produces a lot of noise.

High performance, high temperature. The Summit E14 may look like an ordinary Ultrabook, but it manages to house a full-fledged GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q to offer significantly faster graphics performance than the best that Intel Iris Xe and AMD Vega can currently do. There are some costs to be aware of, however.

No sooner said than done, but does this actually work? Does it deliver the promised advantages in terms of noise and temperature, and is it stable enough at the same time? We put this to the test.

In terms of price, the situation is exactly the opposite with the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 4G. The 6.55-inch mid-range smartphone starts at 300 Euros (~$354) and is therefore clearly the cheapest representative of the Mi 11 series. Nevertheless, its features and performance are good as our review will show.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti arrives as a mid-cycle refresh to supplant the RTX 3080 as the company's fastest gaming GPU nine months after the company first introduced the Ampere architecture.

89% Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G2 Intel review: A very good business laptop despite the 16:9 format

Redesign in the old format. Even though Lenovo renews its premium model of the ThinkPad T-Series from the ground up, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s Gen 2 still keeps its 16:9 format, going against the current trend for displays. The fact that it still achieves a very good result is primarily due to the excellent input devices and equipment.

Its internals also look impressive on paper. A fast Intel Core i7-11370H quad-core CPU, an Nvidia GeForce MX450 GPU, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 512 GB SSD should result in a fast device. However, the Xiaomi laptop shows some irregularities in the test.

OLED is dimmer than the IPS option. The gen-to-gen updates over 10th gen Ice Lake are massive in terms of graphics performance, but everything else remains essentially unchanged. If you're not doing any gaming or picture editing, then last year's model will be more than enough.

81% Realme 8 smartphone review - Without fast internet the better phone?

5G deniers. The realme 8 4G costs just as much as its 5G brother. Does that make sense? Are there better features elsewhere? In the review, we take a look at for whom the inexpensive smartphone is worthwhile.

85% Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13 Laptop Review - Too expensive with Intel CPU?

Microsoft lacks innovation. Microsoft's small Surface Laptop 4 gets a new Tiger Lake processor, but that's about it. Is that still enough in 2021 to compete with the rivals including Apple’s M1 MacBooks?

New horizons. With some delay, but a revolutionary carbon chassis, the Carbon 1 Mk II finally comes to the end user. Some things still feel like a prototype, but at the same time you have the feeling that you are holding a revolution in your hands. Is that enough to convince in everyday use?

Among siblings. We had the Amazfit GTS 2 mini under review almost at the same time as the Amazfit GTS 2e, which allowed for comparisons in many aspects. Apart from several similarities, there are also some differences. However, the question of which of the two is the better one didn't receive a clear answer in the end.

New innards in an old shell. Once again, Lenovo "only" updates its T-series with a new CPU. However, the Lenovo ThinkPad T14 Gen 2 boasts a more promising CPU upgrade. After all, Tiger Lake is a much more extensive update than last-gen CPUs. However, the new ThinkPad laptop is not entirely flawless.

A great device for work! The ZenBook 13 from Asus is an ultra-compact 13-inch laptop with an excellent OLED display. Despite its small size, it doesn't lack performance, since with the AMD Ryzen 7 5800U, a native octa-core SoC runs the slim device. Our detailed review with numerous measurements and benchmarks examines what performance you can really expect and whether the OLED display can fulfill our expectations.

Destop-level gaming performance is certainly what many gamers who have sworn off the clunky tower want. The Mastercase EG200 accommodates full-length desktop graphics cards, supplies them with power and connects them to the laptop via Thunderbolt 3. Besides that, there are interesting extras like an additional hard drive bay, more USB ports or an integrated laptop holder. We check how a dGPU in the case performs against full-fledged desktop PCs.

But where does Huami's fitness tracker position itself between Xiaomi's Smart Band 5 and the new Mi Band 6?

AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Review: Near-RTX 3090 performance for US$500 less but only marginally better than RX 6800 XT

Radeon has re-entered the chat. The Radeon RX 6900 XT signals AMD's re-entry into the flagship GPU space since the R9 Fury X's outing in 2015. The RX 6900 XT offers excellent raster performance that puts it firmly within reach of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 despite some inadequacies in ray tracing and lack of AI-based super sampling. We take the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT for a test drive and see how well Team Red has progressed with RDNA 2 so far.
