Lenovo V510-15IKB (7200U, Full-HD) Laptop Review

81% Lenovo V510-15IKB (7200U, Full-HD) Laptop Review

Without stamina. With the V510-15IKB, Lenovo offers a quiet 15.6-inch device for work. It is well equipped: Among others, it comes with a Kaby Lake processor, an SSD, Windows 10 Pro, and an IPS display. However, the battery runtimes are disappointing.

87% Lenovo ThinkPad L570 (7200U, Full HD) Laptop Review

Kaby Lake upgrade. The ThinkPad L570 is first and foremost a Kaby Lake upgrade. The new CPU generation brings a slight improvement in performance and is responsible for the considerable increase in battery runtime. Our test unit is sold without an operating system.

86% Lenovo ThinkPad T570 (Core i5, Full HD) Laptop Review

More compact. Lenovo has equipped its 15-inch business classic with a new case and offers an attractive package in many areas. However, there are still some performance bugs, and the Chinese manufacturer is still using a mediocre Full HD panel.

85% Acer Aspire VX5-591G (7700HQ, FHD, GTX 1050 Ti) Laptop Review

Limited fun. Actually, Acer's new multimedia laptop designed for gaming is convincing in most aspects - only that the conventional hard drive does not really match to the high-performance technology and it really slowed things down in the test. We recommend opting for another version or retrofitting it with an SSD.

89% Razer Blade 2017 (GTX 1060, 7700HQ, Full-HD) Laptop Review

I Am What I Am. The Razer Blade combines great performance with good mobility and a healthy dose of design. The result is an appealing notebook which weighs in at less than 2 kg and measures less than 20 mm thick. The price is not for the faint of the heart, however.

85% Gigabyte Aero 14 (7700HQ, GTX 1060) Laptop Review

Breezy marathon runner. The Aero 14 is Gigabyte's first attempt at a mobile gaming laptop. The recipe for this seems quite simple, really. Start with high-end hardware, a well-made aluminum case, add a WQHD display and season to taste with a surprisingly capable battery. This much we can tell already: it performs very well but even this jack of all trades doesn't come without compromises.

85% Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720 (7500U, QHD) Convertible Laptop Review

3:2 Surface. With its QHD+ display and Kaby Lake 15-watt SOC, Lenovo’s IdeaPad Miix 720 represents formidable competition for the Microsoft Surface. But the unbalanced fans and low-quality microphone spoil the 12-inch model for us.

Our extensive review is going to reveal whether they will be won over by the EliteBook 850 G4 or whether HP has once again cut corners and skimped on that one particular part the way they already did with its predecessor.
