ASUS Vivobook F200: Sensitive kid

The revolution that ASUS made with netbook concept (EEE PC) launched this company among the top players when it comes to portable computers. Meantime, ASUS used its newfound popularity to bring a large number of very good portable PC’s on the market, and this time for testing we’ve received a model that falls in the category of ultra-portable laptops, paired with a touchscreen. Sounds good, right?

ASUS ROG G750JH: Portable dragon

When someone mentions laptops intended for gaming, first associations are high price, heating, size, etc. In most cases, we can’t blame the gamers for thinking that way, because those are the experiences they’ve had or have heard about from multiple sources. Portables that have strong enough hardware that can play the newest games in 99% of cases fall in the above-mentioned category.

Lenovo Ideapad Y510P: A toy to remember

We’ve talked many times about Lenovo’s segregation of mobile computers to IdeaPad and ThinkPad, and we’ve already had the chance to get acquainted with Y family of IdeaPad series when previous iteration was topical. These models use some technology of the business-oriented ThinkPad, and that’s the reason they have the recognizable keyboard, and similar shortcuts.

ASUS N56DY: Mobile APU in practice

We’ve met ASUS N56 series and its variations exactly a year ago. At the time we’ve received for testing an Intel-based model with Optimus technology and GeForce GT630 graphics. One thing we’ve found very interesting in N56VM that we’ve tested then is Full HD screen, an excellent new design, and an external subwoofer, that came with the package.

Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1: Small, but powerful

When a laptop has a ThinkPad logo, it’s clear from the start that it’s a prestigious piece of hardware. Once you add the X prefix, you can expect great portability paired with powerful hardware. After a very successful X3xx series, Lenovo presented a successor last year, X1 model, which we believe achieved the same commercial success. We’ve received for testing its more powerful brother, X1 Carbon

Lenovo IdeaPad U330p: Mobile “tock”

Along with the desktop version of new Intel processors, we’ve received for testing a very interesting Lenovo’s mobile model, equipped with the upcoming generation of Haswell CPUs. Under the brand name of IdeaPad U330p, Lenovo presented the spiritual successor of U310. Since this is a test model, the results should not be taken as granted, since at the moment of writing of this text, not all of drivers were available, so it’s possible that soon the results will differ than those that we have. Until retail models arrive on the market, here’s our opinion about Lenovo’s new ultrabook. The characteristic design that started with Lenovo Yoga definitely had good review, and that’s the reason why U330p looks a lot like the aforementioned Transformer.

AMD ULV: Ultra-thin, but not ultra-expensive?

The proof that APU is a versatile component lies in the fact that it’s used in a great many number of different types of devices. That’s what large palette of models allows them. The strongest desktop models allow for more than pleasant gaming, and the same goes for the strongest mobile versions. On the other hand, the cheaper models can be used in entry-level laptops, while giving satisfying capabilities to their users. Aside from that, they can be used in combination with AMD’s Radeon graphic cards with Dual-Graphics technology, which is great news for all those who need that extra power. This brings us to ULV model, which has a maximum TDP of partly 17 W. When it comes to processors, 17 W seems like a standard characteristic of ULV models, but bearing in mind that APU has the “trinity” of processor, graphics chip and northbridge, it becomes clear why we’re emphasizing that consumption of 17 W is more than impressive. We’ve received for testing two devices with almost the same hardware specifications, but of different classes and somewhat different concept.

Lenovo ThinkPad W530: ThinkPad at its best

During its reign, IBM set the standards with ThinkPad series, when it comes to business computers. When Lenovo bought the PC division of this company, ThinkPad computers were a good and famous brand with a long history. Lenovo did its best to continue this successful tradition, further improving ThinkPad computers with each new iteration. ThinkPad series itself is segmented, so you have very portable X machines, affordable, business-oriented L models and T series, intended for professionals who value mobility and performances. Their best ThinkPad series model has designation W, which stands for Workstation models. These are the computers intended for most demanding users and are mostly equipped with powerful “bleeding edge” hardware. We had the opportunity to test one of these machines. It’s a W530 model.

ASUS VivoBook S200: Proper hardware for Windows 8

With the appearance of the new Windows OS, optimised for touch-sensitive displays, it was only logical to expect a torrent of devices with the same optimisation. Having in mind their huge product gamma, it’s no surprise that ASUS has decided to join the race, so we got their latest model, VivoBook S200, for testing purposes. With a 11.6” display, this notebook falls into the ultraportable category, and its design sticks to the Zenbook family values pretty faithfully. With the exception of the bottom cover and display frame, the entire case is made of ground aluminium, resulting in more weight that one might expect, which may bother users who expect ultraportable models to be equally ultra-light.

ASUS Taichi 21: Ultratablet

Rotating displays, touch-sensitive displays, tablet/notebook transformers… All of these were mere concepts a few years ago, yet they’re increasingly invading the store displays of today. Other than the Lenovo Yoga notebook, we’ve also been surprised by ASUS’ Taichi 21. Although the idea is the same, these two notebook models are actually quite different. While Yoga does its transformation from notebook to tablet by rotating the display by 360 degrees, ASUS has decided that Taichi should have two displays altogether.
