73% Fujitsu Stylistic V535 (Z3795,128 GB, LTE) Tablet Review

Ruggedized for Tough Work. With these words, Fujitsu advertises the industry tablet Stylistic V535. The 8.3-inch tablet comes with many communication features, large memory capacity, and a 64-bit CPU. The specification appears excellent. However, the reality is different: Passive cooling thwarts any plans.

HP Pavilion x360 11t T5M27AV Notebook Review

73% HP Pavilion x360 11t T5M27AV Notebook Review

Tiny Tank. HP has been busy updating their Pavilion x360 line, and today we look at the smallest member, the 11t. With a solid construction, this 11.6" convertible is as strong as a tank. Unfortunately, it also feels as slow as one.

Lenovo S21e-20 80M4004MGE Subnotebook Review

71% Lenovo S21e-20 80M4004MGE Subnotebook Review

200 Euros (~$221). How much Windows do you get for this price? This 11-inch device proudly runs Windows 10 Home 64-bit. However, there are certain drawbacks, such as, a bad keyboard and a weak chassis.
Intel Pentium N3540 | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 11.6" | 1.1 kg
Lenovo B50-10 80QR0013GE Notebook Review

70% Lenovo B50-10 80QR0013GE Notebook Review

Meaningless. 299 Euros (~$333) have to be put on the counter for the B50-10. This delivers a Bay Trail laptop with Windows 10. However, it is not a portable typewriter. Lenovo cut back on the battery (24 Wh), and the laptop can consequently only serve with limited stamina.

Cherry Trail could be the end of the line for the Atom family as profitability from Atom-driven tablets and smartphones looks unlikely.
Acer One 10 S1002-17HU Convertible Review

81% Acer One 10 S1002-17HU Convertible Review

The subtle differences. At a first glance, Acer's One 10 and the Aspire Switch 10E that we tested quite a while ago seem to be very similar. A closer look, however, reveals several (mostly sensible) modifications - but changing to a newer processor architecture is not one of them.

HP Pro Tablet 10 EE G1 Tablet Review

77% HP Pro Tablet 10 EE G1 Tablet Review

Robust. HP's tablet is designed for use in educational institutions. It is accordingly robust. The equipment is also in line with the intended purpose: A bright, high-contrast IPS screen and 3G modem are installed.
Intel Atom Z3735F | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 10.1" | 850 g
HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 Tablet Review

82% HP Pro Tablet 408 G1 Tablet Review

Interesting. An 8-inch Windows tablet that is furnished with Windows 8.1 and a Bay Trail processor is no longer awe-inspiring in 2016. Particularly since the device is aimed at professional users. Nevertheless, the tablet is compelling. Not least thanks to its good battery life and the integrated 3G modem plus a monthly data volume.

Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 300-10IBY Convertible Review

79% Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 300-10IBY Convertible Review

Windows 10 @Bay Trail. Lenovo demands an exorbitant 350 Euros (~$389) for the IdeaPad Miix 300-10IBY that was kindly provided to us. That is a lot of money for an older CPU and middling battery life. However, some lower-priced models also exist.
Intel Atom Z3735F | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 10.1" | 1.2 kg
Acer Aspire E13 ES1-311 Notebook Review

76% Acer Aspire E13 ES1-311 Notebook Review

Long-lasting. The Aspire is a compact, 13.3-inch subnotebook. The laptop's distinguishing features are its low price of approximately 350 Euros (~$388) and its long battery life. However, the laptop's fan can get annoying.

Lenovo Ideapad 100S Notebook Review

78% Lenovo Ideapad 100S Notebook Review

Windows 10 netbook. Lenovo proves that you don't need to have fancy convertibles or detachables to make a good netbook. While a healthy number of features had to be cut, the super-light Ideapad 100S is a bargain for just under $200.
Intel Atom Z3735F | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 11.6" | 998 g
Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15 Notebook Review

69% Lenovo IdeaPad 100-15 Notebook Review

Superfluous. Despite a frugal CPU, Lenovo's 15.6-inch notebook only manages poor battery runtimes. With a price tag of around 400 Euros (~ $446), it cannot really be called a bargain either.
Intel Pentium N3540 | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 15.6" | 2.3 kg
HP Pavilion x2 10-n013dx Convertible Review

75% HP Pavilion x2 10-n013dx Convertible Review

Versatile and affordable… The Pavilion x2 10-n013dx is the latest in HP’s rather crowded convertible line, sporting a familiar detachable design and a power-sipping Intel chipset intended to handle the basics. But with its multimode design and reasonable components, it’s an enticing candidate for the price tag.

Asus X200MA Netbook Review

75% Asus X200MA Netbook Review

A tiny companion. Small, light, affordable: pretty much all old-school netbooks fit the bill in that regard. To make them truly usable, they also need to be equipped with good input devices, a decent display and feature a long battery life. Despite the fact that Asus' netbook offers a good price-to-value ratio, the user has to deal with a few drawbacks as well.

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-B2 Tablet Review

82% Panasonic Toughpad FZ-B2 Tablet Review

Inexhaustible. Panasonic shows just what it takes to survive an industrial workday with its Toughpad FZ-B2. It impressed us with its casing and performance. However, weaknesses were found, primarily in the screen and cameras.
Intel Celeron N2930 | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 7" | 590 g
Toshiba Chromebook 2 CB30-B Review

80% Toshiba Chromebook 2 CB30-B Review

Successful follow-up. A bright IPS screen in Full HD resolution, over 7 hours of battery life and a noiseless device starting at less than 400 Euros (~$444) is here for the taking. However, Toshiba's new lineup totters in terms of stability and configuration options.
Intel Celeron N2840 | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 13.3" | 1.3 kg
Dell Chromebook 11 (3120) Review

81% Dell Chromebook 11 (3120) Review

Toshiba Satellite Click Mini L9W-B Convertible Review

80% Toshiba Satellite Click Mini L9W-B Convertible Review

Netbook 2.0 Current tablets with docking solutions could be what netbooks were a few years ago: compact companions with long battery runtimes that can be used for multimedia contents as well as productive tasks. Toshiba relies on a very small size, two batteries, a high resolution and a dock with a USB type A port. A recipe for success?

Acer Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM Notebook Review

76% Acer Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM Notebook Review

A good "Start". A good "Start". Acer's entry-level office laptop with the somewhat bulky name Aspire E15 Start ES1-512-P1SM can score with a long battery life and useful keyboard among other things. However, is that enough to prevail over the multitude of equally low-priced competitors?

Last-gen still competes. The latest model in the Dell Venue 11 Pro 5130 range includes a high-end Atom (Baytrail-M) processor and combines it with 4GB of RAM and a full HD screen which showcases what can be done with Atom, at a time when the next-gen processors are feeding-in and quickly ageing this tablet.

HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

78% HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

Chromebook rival. If users do not find the color of the Stream 13 appealing, they will at least find the inner values attractive. Its silent operation, long battery life, and low price make HP's laptop interesting. A one-year license for MS Office 365 Personal is also included.

Lenovo Miix 3 8 Tablet Review

84% Lenovo Miix 3 8 Tablet Review

Mini-Windows. For less than 200 Euros (~$223) you can already get an 8-inch tablet with genuine Windows - although it is only the 32-bit version. 169 Euros (~$189) for the Lenovo Miix 3 8 is quite a challenge to the competition. What can be expected for such a price?

Dell Latitude 11 3150 Notebook Review

79% Dell Latitude 11 3150 Notebook Review

Asus Transformer Book T100 Chi Convertible Tablet Review

80% Asus Transformer Book T100 Chi Convertible Tablet Review

Stylishly affordable… The latest Chi convertible from ASUS might not satisfy those with heavy computing needs, but it seems a compelling proposition for those in the market for an inexpensive 2-in-1. Can this lower-end alternative to Microsoft’s Surface line make a splash?
Intel Atom Z3775 | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 10.1" | 1.1 kg
Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Notebook Review

80% Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Notebook Review

Quiet and cool. Lenovo's ThinkPad Yoga 11e is designed for schools, which means the device is pretty sturdy. Such a notebook should have long battery runtimes – but the Yoga 11e is only average in this category.
Intel Celeron N2930 | Intel HD Graphics (Bay Trail) | 11.6" | 1.6 kg
Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8 Tablet Review

83% Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 8 Tablet Review
