Now with fast WLAN. Apple has upgraded the MacBook Pro 14 and the new M2 Pro offers greater performance, and fast WLAN is finally supported. Overall, the MBP 14 is an excellent machine, but Apple has also put some brakes on the M2 Pro in the small MacBook Pro.

Huawei MatePad SE

79% Huawei MatePad SE tablet review - Small price, small battery

Living room sprinter. The Huawei MatePad SE is an inexpensive tablet for home use. The low weight and the metal chassis cannot hide the fact that buyers have to live with the limitations of all current Huawei devices. Our detailed review reveals whether we can still recommend the tablet.

GeoFlex 140 2-in-1 laptop under test

76% Geo Computers GeoFlex 140 2-in-1 laptop in test: A convertible for about $160

It hardly gets any cheaper. The GeoFlex 140 is a convertible that is offered for less than 200 Euros (~$218) at some shopping events. You do not get much performance for that, but you get a 2-in-1 laptop with Windows 11 Home license and one year of Microsoft Office 365. If you get both via Microsoft, they already cost more than the convertible.

Huawei FreeBuds 5i review - Affordable in-ear headphones with LDAC

Sonorous. Huawei offers the FreeBuds 5i with LDAC support and hybrid ANC for just under 100 Euros (~$109). That sounds like a bargain. Whether the TWS headphones need such a powerful codec and deliver what they promise is revealed in the test.

89% Lenovo ThinkPad T16 Gen 1 Core i7 laptop review: Quiet at the cost of performance

Ryzen 5 6650U or Core i7-1270P? The Core i7-1270P is faster than the Core i5-1240P or Ryzen 5 6650U configurations on paper, but it's a bit more complicated in execution. The short Turbo Boost potential of the model means steeper throttling for the Core i7-1270P when running demanding loads.

What it feels like to be high. You don't really want to know what the creators of High on Life were on when developing the game. The title turned out to be one of the funniest and most creative first-person shooters in the past few years. But is the engine just as optimised as the wit on display?

Putting Intel NUC Iris Xe to shame. For about $650 USD complete with storage and 32 GB of RAM, the Beelink SER6 Pro offers some serious performance-per-dollar when compared to competing mini PCs. Its GPU in particular is one of the fastest amongst any integrated solution.

81% The GeForce MX450 is falling behind: Asus ZenBook Flip 15 Q508U convertible review

Just 8 GB of fixed RAM. An AMD Zen + Nvidia MX ultrabook sounded nice a few years ago, but it's too little too late now that Zen 3+ CPUs are available with the faster, smaller, and more efficient integrated Radeon 680M. The GeForce MX450 is still not bad if you don't mind the added weight and thickness, though.

More solar charging power please. 1,229 Wh energy storage, 5-year warranty, 1,500 W AC output power, 1,000 W AC charging power - the Anker 757 power station has some impressive buzzwords in its luggage. We test how the 1,700 Euro (~$1843) "solar generator" performs in everyday use, from charging via the Anker 625 solar panel (370 Euros/~$401) to using the self-produced electricity.

Better than the X1 Carbon. Lenovo refuses to offer its X1 models with AMD CPUs - perhaps there is an exclusive contract with Intel. The next best model with the AMD Ryzen 6000 is the Lenovo ThinkPad T14s G3. Even though it is positioned below the X1 Carbon in Lenovo's lineup, it is better in many ways.

Two performance cores for 15-Watt CPUs. Intel’s Alder Lake-U chips in the 15W segment are primarily designed for thin and light laptops. However, there can be massive performance differences depending on the implementation and it does not always make sense for the manufacturers to use U-series CPUs, either.

Raphael without the X factor. The AMD 65 W Ryzen 7000 non-X lineup seeks to make Zen 4 available at more affordable price points. Today, we test the AMD Ryzen 7 7700 and see how it performs vis-à-vis its higher TDP cousins and also against the Intel Raptor Lake competition. While the Ryzen 7 7700 can get you near-Core i9-12900K performance for US$70 less than the Ryzen 7 7700X's MSRP, extraneous factors such as high DDR5 prices can put a spanner in the works.

Ryzen 5 3550H in 2023. The Trigkey is inexpensive at just under US$300, but it thankfully sidesteps the terribly slow Celeron or Atom solutions for an older but faster AMD Zen+ processor instead. Even light HTPC multi-tasking can benefit from the aging AMD processor.

Navi vs. Ada Lovelace! AMD RDNA 3 architecture marks the use of a multi-chip module design for the first time in consumer GPUs, similar to what we have been seeing with Ryzen on the CPU side. The smaller dies seem to afford higher yields and reduced manufacturing costs, which are being passed on to the consumer.

AMD Ryzen 9 7950X and AMD Ryzen 7 7700X Review: Superlative performance and efficiency gains that give Raptor Lake a run for the money

Raphael's shiny new frescos. The AMD Raphael Zen 4 Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 7 7700X come with the promise of significant performance and efficiency upgrades over Zen 3. The new processors vie with Intel's latest Raptor Lake offerings for the performance and gaming crown, and succeed for the most part. The new Eco mode, wherein a 65 W Ryzen 7 7950X can outpace a stock Alder Lake Core i9-12900K, is particularly interesting, but users will have to factor in the initial investment that goes into the AM5 platform.

Frames wise, fetti foolish. The AD103-based Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 is the company's mainstream flagship gaming GPU based on the new Ada architecture. The RTX 4080 Founders Edition comes across as a capable 4K Ultra gaming GPU with excellent thermals, noise characteristics, and power efficiency. However, the US$1,200 asking price raises questions on the card's prospects in light of the looming threat from the competition.

Alder Lake-H and 14-inch OLED. Twelve cores inside the Intel Core i5-12500H and a high-resolution OLED panel - the specifications of the Acer Swift 3 SF314-71-56U3 sound very reasonable on paper. In this review, we will explore how well the compact laptop is able to perform in practice.

A worthy Microsoft Surface alternative. The XPS name is held to higher standards than your typical Inspiron or Vostro machine. The XPS 13 9315 2-in-1 mostly hits it out of the park even if it doesn't really offer all that much over the competing Surface Pro 8.

The 1MORE Aero are the brand's first product to come with spatial audio, a feature also present in the Apple AirPods, but they do so for less than half the price. Thankfully, this new Luca Bignardi-tuned product has more up the sleeve than an audio processing algorithm that might lose its appeal after just a few minutes.

More stamina than the gram. It is called an Ultra PC and is cheaper than a gram. This 16-inch laptop has a longer battery life than the already long-lasting Intel-based LG gram. What's more, the device only needs a 72 Wh battery (rather than 80 Wh) to achieve this level of battery life. At 400 g heavier, the Ultra PC is admittedly not quite a "gram", but it is still a respectable piece of hardware no less.

Compromises in exchange for 5G. Most of the cheapest 5G smartphones start at just above 200 USD and this includes our Galaxy A13 5G. A simple case and the low storage capacity is the tradeoff. Is it worthwhile?

Eleglide Coozy review: Fast e-scooter with air tires and a good range

Heavy but powerful. It is not surprising that e-scooters are fashionable right now. They are significantly more affordable than e-bikes and get the rider to their destination without having to contribute their own muscle power. In the case of the Eleglide Coozy, this can even be at a distance of 40-50 kilometers (~25-31 miles). We tested the e-scooter extensively.

86% Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7 laptop review: Ryzen 5 6600HS meets good 16:10 display

16-incher worth a recommendation. With the IdeaPad 5 Pro 16ARH7, Lenovo creates a very exciting overall package. Until now, we did not have a Ryzen 5 6600HS with an integrated Radeon 660M in our test. In addition, there is a bright 16:10 display with a high sRGB coverage.

88% Lenovo ThinkBook 16 G4+ review: Good multimedia laptop with a lot of power

Aluminum case and WQHD panel. Lenovo is offering a large 16-inch multimedia notebook in the ThinkBook 16 G4+, which is armed with a lot of power thanks to an Intel Core i7-12700H and a dedicated Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 as well as a good sRGB screen in 16:10 format.

84% Huawei Mate Xs 2 review - Foldable smartphone with handicap

Partial Downgrade. Huawei sends its foldable smartphone into the next round and makes it much more compact. Due to trade restrictions, but also sluggish software development, not everything is new and better. You can read which ones are and why it is still a strong foldable in the test.

The Core i5-11300H meets the RTX 3050 Ti. While most gaming laptops priced under 1,000 Euros (~$1,002) show significant weaknesses in image quality (keyword: color space), HP claims that the Pavilion Gaming 17-cd2146ng offers an sRGB coverage of 100%. We put the 17-incher through its paces.

85% Nubia RedMagic 7S Pro review - The gaming smartphone with integrated fan and UDC

Many superlatives. The RedMagic 7S Pro is a thoroughbred gamer, which is not only equipped with a fast SoC, but also promises high frame rates and sampling rates. Additional sensor keys are supposed to improve the gaming experience, while the integrated fan keeps the frames stable. A direct hit?

89% Lenovo Legion 7 16IAX7 laptop review: Fast 16-inch gamer with 165 Hz display

Intel HX-CPU and GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. The Lenovo Legion 7 16 offers everything that gamers desire. In addition to the fastest mobile processor from Intel, there is also the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and a fast 165 Hz display. The cooling system also manages to keep the hardware cool, but at 4,499 Euros (~US$ 4,500), the high-end gamer is by no means a bargain.
