Lenovo ThinkPad Helix.. review

Lenovo ThinkPad Helix.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Lenovo has big plans with Windows 8, convertible laptops and Ultrabooks, and more but one that caught our eye at CES was the ThinkPad Helix. With a fancy design, versatility, and an 11.6-inch 1080p display it’s quite the device. After a few delays the ThinkPad Helix is finally available today, so we’re taking it for a full spin in its retail form. Is the nearly $1,700 base price tag worth it?"

Hands-on with Acer’s Aspire R7.. strangest convertible PC we’ve ever seen

Hands-on with Acer’s Aspire R7.. strangest convertible PC we’ve ever seen | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Whatever your feelings about Windows 8, there's no question that it (along with external threats from devices like tablets) has spurred PC makers to get more inventive than they've been in years. Not all of the convertible laptops built for the new operating system have been home runs, but after years of seeing the same designs get slightly thinner and slightly cheaper with every new iteration, the form has given PC OEMs some real opportunities to differentiate themselves."

MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina Review

MacBook Pro 13-inch Retina Review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Apple finally gave ambitious road-warriors with excellent vision the Retina MacBook Pro they’d been demanding, a 13-inch model to join the existing 15-inch Pro at the pinnacle of the company’s mobile range. Promising the same eye-watering visuals with the sort of processing power the Pro line-up is known for, the 13-inch version also makes some concessions so as to slim down to suit more frequent travelers. Is this the perfect notebook for your bag?"

MacBook Air 13-inch Review (mid-2013)

MacBook Air 13-inch Review (mid-2013) | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Apple’s value-proposition for the 2013 MacBook Air is simple: the same sleek ultraportable notebook as before, but lasting much longer. A switch to Intel’s latest Haswell processor architecture and a slightly larger battery takes runtime up to twelve hours versus the seven hour estimate of its predecessor, while a new type of flash storage promises even quicker boot times, resume, and file access. Is this the MacBook to own?"

Dell's Acrobatic XPS 12.. is the Windows 8 convertible to beat.. review

Dell's Acrobatic XPS 12.. is the Windows 8 convertible to beat.. review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it
Dell's XPS 12, which if you'll recall is the one with the touchscreen that flips on its axis, is one of the close ones. It may well hit that convertible sweet spot for many. It's still a bit too big and a bit too heavy to be a "tablet" in the post-iPad sense of the word, but it's perfectly usable as a tablet in short bursts. The best part is that even if you don't particularly care about the tablet functionality, the XPS 12 is still a pretty great Ultrabook.

Toshiba Satellite U845W Review

Toshiba Satellite U845W Review | Mobile IT | Scoop.it

"Over the past couple of months, it’s become clear that the way computer makers–those companies that specify and brand the actual physical device–need to make less models.

 

The U845W has something that no other Toshiba laptop has: a 21:9 form factor. Yep, the screen runs gloriously at 1792×768 resolution. That means that you can watch movies at original resolutions without letter-boxing. It also means the laptop is a few inches longer and more unwieldy than the 14-inchers you’re used to. Is it worth it?"
