HP Probook 4331s Battery

There HP Probook 4330s Battery are many things to like about the VAIO F's island-style Laptop Battery for ASUS M51E , keyboard, including a full number pad and bright backlighting which makes it easier to work in a dim setting. The large flat keys had a nice spring, and we were hit our usual 50-word-per-minute average on the Ten Thumbs Typing Test. However, we did notice a slight flexing of the keyboard as we typed, and we took issue with the undersized left Tab, Battery for ASUS M50Sv , Caps Lock, and Left Shift keys.Although the raised palm rest looks off-putting, we found it to be quite comfortable, though a little warm. Integrated into the palm rest is a 3.9 x 1.9 Synaptics touchpad comprised of a series of small raised dots. The added texture felt good against our fingers, and it responded quickly to Laptop Battery replacement for ASUS M50Sr , various mulititouch gestures such as pinch-to-zoom, two-finger flick, and rotation. We were able to scroll through web pages at an easy pace with two-finger scroll and accurately highlight text. The touchpad buttons were fairly stiff, which was a Battery for ASUS M50Sa , small distraction.

Surrounded in a glossy black bezel, the Battery for ASUS N75SV , VAIO F's 16.4-inch matte 1920 x 1080p LED backlit display gave us crisp detail with vibrant color.

But the real test came when we popped in the Blu-Ray edition of The Other Boleyn Girl. While there was a small amount of visual noise, we couldn't help but be impressed by the deep jewel tones of many of the costumes, including Natalie Battery for ASUS N75SL , Portman's forest-green frock. Eric Bana's ruby-red robe shimmered and caught every glint of light, almost as if it had a life of its own.From movie dialogue and sound effects to streaming music on Pandora or Slacker, the notebook consistently gave us loud, clear audio. Battery for ASUS N75SJ , We were able to further enhance the sound with the Dolby Home Theater control panel that allowed us to switch between movie, music, and gaming presets, ensuring we got the optimal listening experience. Despite the Dolby assist, we did notice that Drake's "Headlines" was light on the bass, as was Big Sean's "Marvin Laptop Battery for ASUS N75SF , and Chardonnay."

After 15 minutes of streaming a full-screen Hulu video, HP Mini 1103 Battery the VAIO F was positively chilly registering 87, 92, and 78 degrees Fahrenheit at the touchpad, space between the G and H keys, and underside.

The Sony VAIO line is usually bundled with a Battery for ASUS N55SF , moderate number of programs designed to take care of all your maintenance and multimedia needs, and the VAIO F is no different. VAIO Care, diagnostics software that allows users to access system information, run diagnostics, Battery for ASUS N55S , and troubleshoot hardware and software issues makes a return. Its revamped interface has large, eye-catching icons and easy to read instructions; we liked how easy it was to navigate and learn more about the system's inner workings.Sony Picture Motion Browser Battery for ASUS N55E , (PMB) let us quickly and easily import and access all our video, images, and audio into one place. VAIO Gate, Sony's unobtrusive shortcut software, made accessing our favorite applications as simple as mousing over the top of the display and waiting for the familiar shadowy blob to Battery for ASUS N55 , expand into a bar. Remote Keyboard and Play are featured, and we enjoyed being able to play our PlayStation 3 games on the VAIO F's full HD display. Setup took approximately 5 to 7 seconds and streamed seamlessly.

The overall effect is striking, from the silvery aluminum A32-N55 , cover to the metal plate on the bottom with etched Windows and Intel logos (no stickers on the palm rest!). It's also sturdy, with virtually no screen flexing and no vibration during typing. Our only complaint is that, when closed, ASUS N45 Laptop Battery , there's almost no protrusion or screen edge to grip, making the Dell hard to open.The screen settles for the 1,366 by 768 resolution that's the baseline among netbooks, missing the chance to impress us with the 1,440 by 900 of the MacBook Air or the ASUS N45E Battery , 1,600 by 900 of the Asus Zenbook UX31-RSL8 ($1,049 list, 4 stars). Its viewing angles are slightly narrow; once or twice we found ourselves wishing we could tilt the screen back a fraction further. On the positive side, the display's colors are vivid and it's exceptionally bright; Laptop ASUS N45S Battery , Dell advertises 300 nits but we would have guessed more—you can turn the backlight fully halfway down, not just a notch or two, without things getting dingy.The eye-pleasing screen is matched by a finger-friendly keyboard, with slightly ASUS N45SF Battery , scalloped keys and a precise, slightly clicky design that avoids the too-shallow typing feel of some ultrabooks. The keyboard lacks dedicated Home, End, PgUp, and PgDn keys (they're doubled up on the cursor arrows) and the seldom used context-menu key, ASUS N45SL Battery , but provides a bright LED backlight for typing in dim environments. The large touchpad works smoothly; its lower left and right corners serve as nicely tactile mouse buttons. ASUS N75SL Battery Original ,

The Dell XPS 13 hits the wireless trifecta ASUS N55 Laptop Battery , with 802.11n Wi-Fi (which worked perfectly in our tests), Bluetooth, and Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi) for zapping video and audio to an HDTV set equipped with a Belkin ScreenCast or Netgear Push2TV (Best Deal: $92.36 at ANTOnline) adapter. Asus NX90JQ Battery , Speaking of audio, the ultrabook's is surprisingly clear and crisp.From being lavish with features, however, the XPS 13 abruptly becomes a minimalist when it comes to input/output ports: There's a USB 2.0 port and headset jack on the laptop's left side, Asus NX90 Battery , and a USB 3.0 port and Mini DisplayPort alongside a handy pushbutton-and-LED battery gauge on the right. You'll look in vain for VGA or HDMI video; for an Ethernet port for connecting to wired office networks; or for a memory-card slot, as tempting as it would be to Asus A32-NX90 , slip the Dell into your digital camera bag.By contrast, the ultrabook I/O champ, the Toshiba Portege Z830-S8302 ($1,429 list, 3.5 stars), makes room for all four of the above—VGA, HDMI, Ethernet, and a card reader—in a 2.5-pound chassis, and most competitors manage ASUS N75SV Laptop Battery , at least an HDMI port. Dell sells a USB Ethernet adapter for $30 and Mini DisplayPort to HDMI and VGA adapters for $30 and $37, respectively, so it's not the end of the world, but it's a gripe if you dislike dongles.

After subtracting a system-recovery partition Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-5092 and the software preload, the 128GB SSD has about 75GB free. Happily, there's no bloatware to speak of, unless you count Skype, Microsoft Office Starter 2010, and a McAfee Internet Security trial. Dell boosts the XPS 13's one-year warranty with Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-524G32Mn Original a year of in-home or -office service after remote diagnostics, accidental damage service, and LoJack for Laptops theft protection.One of the XPS 13's neatest features is one that Intel has touted as part of its ultrabook "sleep instead of switch off" specification but that we haven't seen in person before: Smart Connect technology, which lets the laptop periodically wake itself from Laptop Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-5896 sleep mode (you set the interval from 5 to 60 minutes), as long as it's connected to a trusted Wi-Fi or wired network, to check your Outlook email and calendar, TweetDeck feed, or other active applications so the latest data is waiting for you when you reawaken the ultrabook and return to work. We tried it briefly with Gmail and it worked like a charm—we can see Smart Connect saving Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-5952 minutes every morning.As mentioned earlier, the Dell XPS 13 is built around a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 processor, the "Sandy Bridge" model i5-2467M, and the same Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics used in all ultrabooks to date. The hardware posted first-class Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-6070 Original overall performance with a score of 3,535 in our PCMark 7 benchmark test, ahead of the HP Folio 13's (Best Deal: $949.99 at CompUSA.com) score of 3,146 (and behind the Asus UX31-RSL8's result of 3,634, but our Asus test unit had a slightly quicker 1.7GHz CPU instead of the 1.6GHz chip used in models on sale today). Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-6291

The XPS 13 also shone in the 3DMark06 Battery for Acer TravelMate 5742-7159 graphics test, though like all ultrabooks it's built for productivity instead of 3D gaming—the system managed only 17 and 15.2 frames per second at medium settings in Crysis and Lost Planet 2, respectively.Thanks to its SSD, the XPS 13 also boots up Battery for Acer TravelMate 5742-7013 and resumes from sleep in a flash—well, a few flashes, since we couldn't equal Dell's claims of 8 and 1 seconds, respectively; booting from cold till the last taskbar icon appeared took about 20 seconds, but waking from sleep took a snappy 2 seconds.Dell claims almost nine hours of battery life for the XPS 13. Unfortunately, our MobileMark 2007 battery rundown test failed to run. Battery for Acer TravelMate 5742-5562G50Mnss01 But based on the battery's size (47Wh) and our real-world testing, we estimate about six and a half hours for real-world productivity work. In strenuous or worst-case anecdotal testing, word processing and Web surfing in the foreground while Windows Media Player looped a five-minute, full-screen video in the background, the XPS 13 lasted 3 hours 40 minutes. We'll update this review after we get MobileMark to run, Laptop Battery for Acer TravelMate 5742-463G32Mn but the XPS 13's battery life seems in line with other ultrabooks.Update 3/2/12: Our estimate was fairly close—MobileMark 2007 reported a runtime of 5 hours 58 minutes. That's in the ballpark with the Asus UX31-RSL8 and MacBook Air 13-inch, though it trails the 7:33 of the HP Folio 13. Battery for Acer TravelMate 5742-373G32Mn

There will be a flood of new ultrabooks coming with the ASUS N55E Battery , arrival of Intel's "Ivy Bridge" processor update this year, but Dell has set the bar very high without needing new silicon. If it had just one or two of the missing ports we groused about—say HDMI and a card reader—the Dell XPS 13 would be spectacular; as is, ASUS N55S Battery Original , if you don't mind carrying a dongle or two, it's an ultra-small, ultra-sophisticated choice that shoots to the top of ultrabook shopping lists.The Sony VAIO VPC-SE23FX/S ($999 direct) is the latest desktop replacement laptop to come out of Sony, ASUS N55SF Battery , and it ticks all the boxes on the list of favorite features, like a slim chassis, speedy Core i5 processor, 1080p display, and backlit keyboard. A few features are unexpected, like a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for the security conscious, ASUS N55SL Battery , and a life-extending external battery slice. With such a feature set the Sony VAIO VPC-SE23FX/S will prove to be a tempting alternative to our Editors' Choice Dell XPS 15z (Microsoft) ($999 direct, 4 stars), even if the performance isn't quite as fast as that of its peers. ASUS N75 Battery , The VPC-SE23FX/S features the same full-flat design seen in last Sony VAIO VPC-SE16FX/S ($1,249.99 direct, 4 stars), with no sloping in the keyboard and even thickness from front to back when closed. The S tacked onto the end of the model number indicates the platinum silver color seen here on the aluminum lid and palmrest as well as the plastic covering the rest of the chassis.

The VPC-SE23FX/S is under ASUS N75SJ Laptop Battery , one inch thick, measuring 0.97 by 14.97 by 10.08 inches (HWD), and weighs only 4.4 pounds. It also comes with an external battery slice, which extends the battery life considerably, but also bumps up the total weight to 5.7 pounds. ASUS N75SF Battery , By comparison, the HP Envy 15 (2012) ($1,249.99 direct, 4 stars) weighs 5.7 pounds with no hardware.The VPC-SE23FX/S's 15.6-inch widescreen offers an eye-popping 1,920-by-1,080 resolution display, the same resolution seen on the HP Envy 15 (2012). ASUS N75S Battery , It's ideal for enjoying movies in full HD, except that you'll need to find those movies somewhere other than a Blu-ray disc, because the VPC-SE23FX/S is equipped with a DVD drive. The drop-hinge design used on the VPC-SE23FX/S provides the illusion that the screen is Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740-6529 actually separate from the rest of the laptop, which is a pretty cool effect. Accompanying the display is Dolby Home Theater v.4 simulated surround sound, which produced clear sound and decent bass when tested with some streaming music (some David Bowie and M83). For actual surround sound you'll need a separate set of speakers. Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740G

The keyboard is full-sized, with an accompanying Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740G-334G32Mn Original numeric pad, with chiclet-style keys and a glowing backlight. It also comes with a silicon keyboard cover, which covers the plastic keys with a silicone membrane that I actually preferred to the standard keyboard. The accompanying multitouch touchpad is responsive and smooth, and the right and left buttons clicked smoothly, if loudly. Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740G-434G32Mn The VPC-SE23FX/S places all of its ports along the right hand side of the chassis, with the DVD optical drive on the left side. Two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port are joined by an HDMI-out port, a VGA monitor connection, and Gigabit Ethernet.

Sony has outfitted the VPC-SE23FX/S with a 2.5GHz dual-core Intel Core i5-2450M processor and 4GB of RAM, similar to the Core i5-2430M seen in the HP Envy 15 and the Core i5-2410M seen in the Dell XPS 15z (Microsoft). Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740Z-P604G32Mnss Original In PCMark 7 performance tests, the VPC-SE23FX/S scored 2,049 points, ahead of the Dell XPS 15z (2,012) but behind the Envy 15 (2,218 points). In CineBench R11.5 rendering tests, the VPC-SE23FX/S scored 2.78 points, ahead of both the HP Envy 15 and the Dell XPS 15z, but falling behind quad-core CPU equipped competitors like the Toshiba Satellite P755-S5269 ($979.99 list, 4 stars). Battery for Acer TravelMate 5740Z-P602G25Mn The VPC-SE23FX/S fell behind in multimedia tests, but still completed Handbrake and Photoshop CS5 tests with enough speed (Handbrake 1:50, Photoshop 4:36) that it will satisfy the user who occasionally edits a clip for YouTube or touches up a photo.

U36SD(All) Battery

The Galaxy Tab is a now-traditional G74SX Battery slab-style tablet, 10.1 by 6.9 by .34 inches (HWD) and 19.9 ounces. It has a 10.1-inch, 1280-by-800 screen (thus the name) and a slightly textured gray back. It's slim and relatively light for a tablet its size. U.S. Cellular's one model is the 32GB unit, which offers about 27GB G74 Battery of space for user files; there's also a microSD card slot. Battery life was similar to the new Apple iPad, at 5 hours, 15 minutes of video playback time with the screen brightness cranked up to max. (The Galaxy Tab has a lower-resolution screen than the iPad, but it's also A42-U36 considerably lighter.)The tablet runs Google Android Honeycomb 3.2 with Samsung's TouchWiz extensions, including a little bar of desk accessory-like applications including a calendar and memo pad which pop up from the bottom of the screen.We've been A42-G74 over this ground before, and you should read our original Galaxy Tab 10.1 review (Best Deal: $549.00 at PCNation) and our Verizon Galaxy Tab 10.1 review to get a full picture of the device. The news here is the carrier, X72DR Battery , the service plans, and the timing. U.S. Cellular is the seventh-largest carrier in the nation, with about six million customers in 26 states. Outside the carrier's native coverage area, U.S. Cellular roams on Verizon and Sprint, offering nationwide 3G coverage. The carrier won our Readers' Choice award by a considerable margin thanks to positive u52f-bbl5 Battery opinions of its fees, coverage and reliability.

U.S. Cellular's LTE network currently covers six regions: Madison/Milwaukee, LC42SD128 Wisc.; Lawton-Wichita Falls, TX-OK; Bangor-Portland, ME; Presque Isle-Houlton, ME; rural eastern North Carolina and metropolitan Iowa. It's currently the only LTE carrier in Maine, but at least part of all of those other areas are covered by Verizon's 4G LTE. A32-K72 The carrier plans to expand throughout 2012 and 2013.We haven't been out to test U.S. Cellular's 4G network, and U.S. Cellular isn't quoting speeds publicly. But because of U.S. Cellular's comfortable spectrum position, we expect it to function more like Verizon's network than like MetroPCS's. That means average download speeds around 9.5Mbps, as our Fastest Mobile Networks tests N53JQ battery showed last year. U.S. Cellular offers the Galaxy Tab at a compelling price: $399.99-499.99 for a 32GB model after a $100 rebate, depending on service plan. That's cheaper than Verizon's $629.99 price. But USCC's service plans are far less flexible than Verizon's. N53J battery Verizon lets you pick anywhere from 2 to 10 GB/month, with fees smoothly sliding up from $30-80/month. USCC only has two options: an unrealistic 200MB plan for $14.99/month, and a probably overly roomy 5GB plan for $54.99/month. The up-to-$200/month overage fees on U81A Battery each plan are a blast from the unpleasant past.

More annoyingly, there's no true month-to-month option. Contrast that with the Editor's Choice A32-U53 Apple iPad (4.5 stars), which is once again more expensive up front at $729 for the 32GB 4G LTE model, but where you can turn the data fees on and off at will. Here's the difference six months makes. The Galaxy Tab 10.1 no longer runs a current version of N55SF Battery Android—its 3.2 has been supplanted by 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and although Samsung promises a 4.0 upgrade, the company hasn't given a timetable for it.The Galaxy Tab's 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor is also starting to look N55S Battery slow compared with quad-core tablets like the Transformer Prime ($499, 4 stars) and others soon hitting the market. And Toshiba's Excite 10 LE has become the thinnest Android tablet around.The Galaxy Tab's biggest problem, though, is apps. X52F Battery While the Tablified Market ($1.49, 4 stars) third-party directory lists about 1,500 good Android tablet apps, that's much fewer than you'll find on an iPad. You can run Android phone apps on this tablet, but they'll often look awful. Google has shifted its development focus to A32-K52 Ice Cream Sandwich, which makes us hesitant to recommend Android tablets not running ICS like this one.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is U.S. Cellular's only 4G LTE tablet, but we have a better idea. G51JX-X2 battery The carrier lets you use its Android phones as Wi-Fi hotspots, and it plans to sell a standalone MiFi-style hotspot as well. If you're interested in speeding along on the nation's most-loved network, get a Samsung Galaxy S Aviator, U.S. Cellular's upcoming 4G LTE phone, G51J-A1-3 battery or U.S. Cellular's upcoming standalone Samsung 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot. Then pair one of those with the Wi-Fi-only models of the new Apple iPad, Apple iPad 2 ($399, 4.5 stars) or Transformer Prime Wi-Fi tablet (Best Deal: $499.99 at Walmart.com). A32-F82 L0690L6 You'll get the best of both worlds: U.S. Cellular's LTE service with a better tablet, and no extra two-year contract.The Excite 7.7 is slim, with a durable Gorilla Glass front and aluminum back. There's a 5-megapixel camera on the back, and a 1.3-megapixel NX90JQ Battery camera on the front. The main draw is the screen, though. Toshiba says the super-saturated, non-PenTile screen is comparable to other leading AMOLED technologies—by which they mean Samsung's Super AMOLED Plus —but Toshiba isn't allowed to A53SV Battery use that brand name. The 7.7-inch screen has 196 pixels per inch (ppi), which is higher than the competing Amazon Kindle Fire ($199, 4 stars), although it's not up to the "retina" levels of the TF700 and new Apple iPad ($499-$829, 4.5 stars).U36S(All) Battery

HP 538334-001 Colors on the tablet's display look hyper-saturated, practically glowing. U36J(All) Battery When held next to an Excite 10 and Excite 13, the Excite 7.7's images stood apart.This will be a strong tablet for gaming, with its Android 4.0 OS and quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor. I ran a quick Browsermark benchmark on the very similar Excite 10 tablet (same processor, U36SD(All) Battery same screen resolution) and got a score of 100317. That's a little lower than I got on the Transformer Prime ($499, 4 stars) with the latest Android 4.0 software, but Toshiba said it was still tuning the firmware on these tablets.Along with Google Play, Tablified Market (4 stars), and Nvidia's Tegra Zone, Toshiba will add its own app discovery tool, U36JC(All) Battery App Place, which will point to tablet-oriented apps in the Google Play market.The Excite 7.7's ports include a MicroSD card slot, MicroUSB jack supporting USB host mode, 3.5-mm headset jack, and a special Toshiba docking port. Some press U36(All) Battery shots going around have had a SIM card slot on the tablet, too, but Toshiba told me that the U.S. model will be Wi-Fi only—they don't want to have to deal with carriers this time around. The tablet will have 16 or 32GB of built-in storage.A41-U36

The Excite 7.7 will be available this June for around $500, K53 Battery Toshiba says.The largest Android tablet I've ever seen, the Toshiba Excite 13 is practically the size of a serving tray. According to Toshiba, the Excite 13 opens up a new realm for tablets: It's the first Android tablet designed especially for sharing.K53S Battery , Why build a tablet with a 13.3-inch, 1600-by-900 LCD screen? It's not exactly portable, and the relatively low 138 pixels-per-inch density means that the Excite 13 will actually show less of a Web page than smaller competitors like the new Apple iPad K53E-B1 Battery , ($499-$829, 4.5 stars).But the Excite 13 begins to come into focus when you realize it'll be sold with a stand. (The stand isn't built in.) This tablet is made for playing movies with several people watching, or for use in the kitchen where your distracted fingers might K53B Battery , want to stab at slightly larger-than-normal buttons. The speaker is stunningly loud, too. While it's definitely tinny, it's probably the loudest tablet I've ever heard.Video chat is another use for this big 'un. Like its siblings, the new Excite 7.7 and Excite 10 tablets, K53BY Battery the Excite 13 has a 2-megapixel camera on the front and a 5-megapixel camera on the back. Its quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor is fully capable of handling full-screen video conferencing, and many of the Nvidia Tegra Zone high-end games support Bluetooth game controllers. Sitting back and using a game pad would be a great experience with this tablet; you don't want to hold it K53U Battery , and tilt it, that's for sure.

Along with Google Play, Tablified Market (4 stars), HP 239551-001 and Nvidia's Tegra Zone, Toshiba will add its own app discovery tool, App Place, which will point to tablet-oriented apps in the Google Play market.Like all Toshiba tablets, the Excite 13 has a full compliment of ports, HP 240258-001 with a full-sized SD card slot, MicroUSB jack supporting USB host mode, MicroHDMI output, 3.5-mm headset jack, and a special Toshiba docking port. The tablet will have 32 or 64GB of built-in storage. Some press shots going around have had a SIM card slot on the tablet, HP 251344-001 too, but Toshiba told me that the U.S. model will be Wi-Fi only—they don't want to have to deal with carriers this time around.The Excite 13 will be available this June for "the mid-$700 range," according to Toshiba.This is a little confusing. The upcoming Toshiba Excite 10 looks HP 265651-B25 almost exactly like the existing Excite 10 LE, also known as the AT200 and Excite X10. But it has a key difference inside: Instead of a TI dual-core processor, it's running Nvidia's speedier quad-core Tegra 3. HP 519249-171

The new Excite 10 has the HP HSTNN-CB1A same super-slim 7.7mm profile and aluminum back as the X10. It has a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera on the front, and just like the previous tablet, it comes in 16 and 32GB capacities. One difference: HP BQ350AA The 1280-by-800, 10-inch LCD screen is now covered in Gorilla Glass, for toughness.The new processor, in tandem with Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich," looks like it will boost performance. I ran a quick Browsermark benchmark on this tablet and got a score of 100317. HP 593572-001 That's a little lower than I got on the Transformer Prime ($499, 4 stars) with the latest Android 4.0 software, but Toshiba said it was still tuning the firmware on these tablets.Along with Google Play, Tablified Market (4 stars), and Nvidia's Tegra Zone, Toshiba will add its HP 587706-751 own app discovery tool, App Place, which will point to tablet-oriented apps in the Google Play market.Like all Toshiba tablets, the Excite 10 has a full compliment of ports, with a full-sized SD card slot, MicroUSB jack supporting USB host mode, HP HSTNN-XB99 HDMI output, 3.5-mm headset jack, and a special Toshiba docking port. Some press shots going around have had a SIM card slot on the tablet, too, but Toshiba told me that the U.S. model will be Wi-Fi only—they don't want to have to deal with carriers HP HSTNN-IB99 this time around.

Asus K72DR Battery Replacement

The Apple iPad may rule the Asus a32-u31 , roost for tablet sales, but for users that want touch-screened convenience but need Windows—be it for reasons of software compatibility or merely OS familiarity—Asus has a new option, the Asus Eee Slate B121. With a laptop-grade processor, Asus a42-u31 , the Eee Slate B121 easily tops the Atom powered 32-bit tablets we've seen lately, but it may not top the Samsung Series 7 Slate (700T1A) ($1,349.99 direct, 4 stars), which uses more current technology.The 12-inch screen is covered with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass to resist Asus U41JF-A1 Laptop Battery , scratches and cracks, while the multi-touch functionality lets you use either fingertips or a stylus to touch and tap your way around. The screen displays in 1280 by 800 resolution, letting you enjoy 720p video on the tablet or Asus U31SD-A1 Laptop Battery , connect up to an HDTV through the built-in mini HDMI port to enjoy 1080p content at full resolution. The screen also boasts a wide 178-degree viewing angle, which offers considerably better visibility than competing tablets.ASUS U36S(All) Laptop Battery ,

The Asus Eee Slate B121 is also equipped with two USB 2.0 ports, ASUS U36SD(All) Battery , an SD/MMC card reader, and a 2-in-1 jack for headphone and mic. Inside, the B121 is equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) embedded chip for the security needed by business users. Wireless options include 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. Asus K72F Battery , There's even a place to stow the stylus built right into the tablet chassis.The Asus Eee Slate B121 is equipped with a 64GB solid-state drive (SSD), the same size seen in competing tablets, like the drive seen in the Fujitsu Stylistic Q550 (Intel Atom Z690) ($999.99 direct, 4 stars).The Asus Eee Slate B121 is equipped with a first-generation Intel Core i5-470UM processor with Asus K72JR Battery , 2GB of RAM. It's the same 1.33GHz dual-core processor seen in last year's Lenovo IdeaPad U260, and offers a full-fledge 64-bit Windows 7 experience in a slim and touch-friendly tablet. Powering all of this is a 34Wh battery that Asus claims will provide 4:30 Asus K72DY Battery battery life. All in all, when we compare the specs of the Asus Eee Slate B121 with the myriad 32-bit Windows tablets we've seen lately, it looks pretty promising.If you're considering a desktop replacement laptop, there are certain realities that you'll have to accept that someone purchasing, say, an ultrabook, wouldn't consider. Asus K72DR Battery ,

Portability probably won't rank too high on your list of priorities, ASUS N71JV Battery because a large screen with a nice-sized keyboard will typically result in a heavier machine. That said, the 17.3-inch Toshiba Satellite P775D-S7144 ($729.99 list) is a budget desktop replacement that has plenty going for it, offering an array of ports, a spacious hard drive, ASUS N71J Battery , and a large 1,600 by 900-resolution LED-backlit display. Still, Blu-ray functionality and 1080p HD, as well as better battery performance, would have sealed the deal and nudged the P775D-S7144 (Best Deal: $698.00 at Walmart.com) from good to great. The P775D's plastic chassis sports a hint of panache, decked out entirely in "Platinum Fusion X2 Finish," Asus N73JQ Battery with raised lines spanning the lid and palm rest. Though the "platinum" aesthetic may not be for everyone, the raised lines create a distinctive look while yielding a tactile, comfortable feel for the palm rest. Unfortunately, the plastic can get a bit flimsy, and results in a noticeable Asus ML31-1005 amount of flexing of the lid. The keyboard's raised tile keys make for a comfortable typing experience, and it's generously sized,with an ample numeric keypad. Toshiba inexplicably chose to forego a backlit keyboard, so yes, you can type with ease—just not in the dark. ASUS K73E Battery

The thin sliver of light adorning the top of the touch pad is a nice cosmetic flourish, but it fails to add any trace Asus N73SV Battery of visibility in low-light environments. The touch pad also features multi-touch control that allows for pinch-zooming. While this sounds useful in theory, I found little need for it in terms of everyday computing. Something along the lines of two-finger ASUS Eee PC 1008 Battery , scrolling would have been far more practical. Media control buttons conveniently located above the keyboard provide easy access to the P775D's Wi-Fi settings and volume controls, though they emit a somewhat strident beep every time they're pushed, so proceed with ASUS Eee PC 1008HA-PU1X-Pi Battery best buy caution in public settings—you'll turn heads, but not necessarily in a good way.The P775D weighs 6.6 pounds, which is comparatively light to other laptops sporting 17.3-inch displays, like the HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx ($699.99 list, 4 stars), which weighs 6.9 pounds, or the Editors' Choice HP Pavilion dv7-6163cl($949.99 list, 4 stars), which weighs 7.4 pounds. ASUS Eee PC 1008HA-PU1X-BK Battery The 17.3-inch, 720p-compatible display is easy on the eyes and perfectly suitable for everyday use, sporting vibrant color reproduction, above-average brightness, and a reflective glossy coating. Videophiles craving a truly superlative media experience, however, may be better off selecting a system with a 1080p display, such as the Editors' Choice HP Envy 17 (2012) ($1,484.99 direct, 4 stars),ASUS Eee PC 1008HA-PU17-WT Battery but a caveat: this feature is reflected in the Envy 17's considerably higher price tag.

There's certainly no shortage of ports on the P775D. It comes Asus X53E Battery equipped with three USB 2.0 ports conveniently located on both sides of the system. The left side of the laptop also sports the sole USB 3.0 port. Though a single USB 3.0 port may be inadequate for some, the P775D makes the most out of it, boasting Sleep and ASUS X44 Battery Charge capability that allows the port to charge any USB device, even if the laptop enters sleep mode. If you crave high definition on another screen, the HDMI port is your sole savior, as the P775D does not feature WiDi (Wireless Display). If you absolutely cannot tolerate dealing with HDMI cables, you'd be better off purchasing either ASUS X44L Battery , the Pavilion dv7-6b55dx or the Aspire TimelineX 5830TG-6614 ($779.99 list, 4 stars), though that won't immediately result in total wireless liberation—you'll still need to connect a Netgear Push2TV HD receiver ($99 list) to your external display. The multi-format media card reader ASUS X54 Battery , (SD/xD/Memory Stick) on the front of the laptop is an added convenience, so while you may be obliged to use an HDMI cable, at least you won't be forced to whip out your digital camera every time you want to upload photos.ASUS X54HY Battery ,

Built-in Harman/Kardon stereo speakers with Dolby Advanced Asus K50A battery Audio technology deliver crisp sound that doesn't distort at the highest levels, though the bass can be charitably characterized as effete regardless of the volume. Of course, the 3.5mm audio-out connector lets you plug the system into the speaker set of your choice. Asus K50C battery best buy There's no Blu-ray drive, but if Blu-ray capability is not absolutely essential to you, the tray-loading 8x DVD +/-RW drive is perfectly adequate, reading and writing DVDs with relative ease.The capacious 750GB (5,400 rpm) hard drive is loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium. Toshiba's 3D hard-drive impact sensor technology also protects your data by moving the drive head into a "safe" HP HSTNN-XB99 Charger position whenever the system detects vibration. It's a nice added touch that affords peace of mind despite the fact that laptops of this size generally aren't lugged around on a daily basis. Be warned, though: When you set up the P775D for the first time, HP 587706-751 Charger you'll confront a considerable array of bloatware. In addition to the usual suspects (a trial of Norton Internet Security, toolbars, the WildTangent games suite, dedicated links to services like Amazon and Skype), Toshiba also included a copious amount of proprietary programs bearing its name. Their usefulness is dubious.HP 593572-001 Charger

The P775D sports a 1.6GHz AMD A8-3520M HP BQ350AA Charger quad-core processor and 6GB of DDR3 memory, a combination that fared somewhat poorly when compared to other laptops in the same price range. Its PCMark 7 score of 1,564 was considerably lower than that of the Pavilion dv7-6b55dx (2,406), the Asus K535D-DS51 ($779.99 street, 3 stars) (1,956), and the Acer 5830TG-6614 (2,388). HP HSTNN-CB1A Charger To be fair, each of those three laptops come equipped with faster CPUs, which explains why the P775D turned in the lowest score for the Cinebench R11.5 test (2.10) and the slowest times for the Photoshop CS5 test (7 minutes 11 seconds), and Handbrake multimedia test HP 434045-141 Charger (3:12).We've seen plenty of tablets that try to offer bigger screens, more features, and faster processing than other competitors, but the Archos 9 PCtablet just wants to give you your Internet and media in a handy portable form-factor. It may not wow you with impressive specs or slick design, but it delivers on the promise of portability, and is one of the cheaper HP 434045-621 Charger Windows tablets available today.

The Archos 9, design-wise, HP 4UR18650-2-7 Charger best buy is something of a throwback to the old UMPC designs seen a few years ago. The bezel around the 9-inch touchscreen is beefed up on the right and left edges, providing what are effectively handholds on either side of the screen. HP PP2182L Charger On these handholds you'll find physical controls for power, microphone, activating a virtual keyboard, a trackpoint mouse and right and left mouse buttons. You'll also find an integrated 1.3-Megapixel webcam. On the side is a single USB 2.0 port, and on the back of the HP PP2182D Charger chassis is a folding kickstand that props up the tablet for hands-free viewing.Measuring 5.4 by 10.1 by 0.67 inches (HWD), the Archos 9 isn't smaller than competing tablets (though it has a smaller 9-inch screen), but it does offer a lighter weight (1 pound) HP DM842A Charger and a lower price tag—you can find the Archos 9 new for under $400. For your money, however, you'll be getting a resistive touchscreen (instead of capacitive touch), and Wi-Fi, but no options for mobile broadband.The Archos 9 runs a 32-bit version of HP 345027-001 Charger Windows 7, with several programs designed around entertainment, like vTuner for internet radio and tv streaming, Microsoft Security Essentials for protection, and Lotus Symphony, an office suite. All of this software is found on the Archos 9's 32GB solid-state drive (SSD).HP 342661-001 Charger

The Archos 9 is powered by a 1.2GHz HP 434045-661 Charger Intel Atom Z515 processor, a three-year old piece of hardware, backed up by 1GB of RAM. Graphics are running on an equally outdated Poulsbo US15W chipset, which offers enough graphics horsepower for browsing the web, HP 438134-001 Charger not much more demanding than that.The Archos 9 PCtablet isn't a new device—it debuted alongside the original iPad—but new units can still be bought, and at deep discount. If you're in the market for an inexpensive HP 438518-001 Charger best buy Windows tablet, it's certainly affordable, but it won't stack up well against the newer Windows tablets on the market. If affordability takes precedence over ease of use and functionality, however, it may be just the tablet PC you're looking for.The Kupa X11 Pro Tablet ($799 direct) is the first product we've seen from Kupa America, but for its first product out of the gate, HP HSTNN-FB39 Charger Kupa makes a strong showing. The X11 Pro's Atom Z670 may not match the laptop-grade processor found in the Samsung Series 7 Slate (700T1A) ($1,349.99 direct, 4 stars), but it squeezes out HP HSTNN-IB39 Charger performance scores that top most similarly equipped tablets. Throw in a healthy collection of ports, a long-lasting battery, and a user interface that says "fingertips welcome," and you've got one of the better Windows tablets HP 338794-001 Charger we've reviewed.

Windows 8 is simply the perfect match Lenovo ThinkPad T410 Charger for the Yoga and its hybrid nature utilising the touchscreen, keyboard and trackpad.One downside to the Yoga is the hefty price tag which Lenovo recently announced as £1,200. Nevertheless we're looking forward to getting the clever gadget in for a full review. Lenovo ThinkPad T410i Charger Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga is one of the more intriguing products to be announced this year and we got some hands on time at the Gadget Show Live 2012.The Yoga is a hybrid device and named because of its flexible nature. Rather than following the example of Asus' Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Charger Transformer Prime - a tablet which plugs into a keyboard dock to make it a laptop, the IdeaPad Yoga is a laptop with a touchscreen which folds into a tablet.Lenovo has designed the device to be used in four different usage modes or positions Lenovo ThinkPad T510 Charger called notebook, tablet, tent and stand. The first is a traditional laptop with a keyboard, trackpad and screen. You can then fold the screen all the way over to turn it into a tablet. The third mode involves positioning the device in a triangular tent-like fashion on a Lenovo ThinkPad T510i Charger flat surface.

Lastly you can have the keyboard facing LENOVO ThinkPad Edge E525 Charger the supporting surface and angle the screen as desired.The unit we saw at the Gadget Show Live wasn’t fully working so we weren't able to give it a proper run for its money. We'll reserve full judgment on performance LENOVO ThinkPad Edge E425 Charger Original and battery life for when we get the Yoga into our test centre.It's full marks from us on innovation and creativity for the IdeaPad Yoga. The way it folds into different shapes certainly means it will adapt to different situations well. For example, LENOVO ThinkPad Edge E420s Charger the keyboard and trackpad are automatically disabled when using the Yoga in certain modes.It is quite big and heavy at 16.9mm and 1.47kg to use a handheld tablet for any length of time but that's the nature of a hybrid device like this.The IdeaPad Yoga has a 13.3-inch LENOVO ThinkPad Edge E220s Charger touchscreen with a resolution of 1600 x 900 and runs on Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system. Windows 8 is simply the perfect match for the Yoga and its hybrid nature utilising the touchscreen, keyboard and trackpad.One downside to the Yoga is the hefty price tag which Lenovo recently announced as £1,200. Nevertheless Lenovo ThinkPad T520i Charger we're looking forward to getting the clever gadget in for a full review.

The very sturdy Dell Latitude XT3 is an enterprise-class laptop that comes with a twist: Lenovo ThinkPad T520 Charger You can quickly fold it into a tablet PC by rotating its screen on its single central hinge. Such so-called convertible PCs often land in large organizations, including those in the health care, education, and law enforcement fields. Asus G70 Battery This kind of machine needs to perform well both as a laptop and as a tablet, hold up well in hectic environments, and deliver good battery life. For the most part, Dell's third-generation Latitude XT fits the bill nicely. See also: Group test: what's the best laptop? ASUS N43J Battery Original The hefty but attractive mid-level model I tested sells for an equally hefty £1,250 inc VAT (so £1,119 ex VAT for business). The moment I picked up the Dell Latitude XT3, I knew that it was made to take some knocks. The case is constructed of thick, ASUS P43E Battery stiff plastic with magnesium-alloy reinforced corners. I found almost no flex in the PC case or the display panel. Dell claims that it made the XT3 spill-resistant; I didn't test that, but the thin rubber gaskets that line the keyboard, the screen bezel, and the perimeter of the computer's top ASUS G72GX Battery Replacement panel are reassuring.

My main problem with the Dell Latitude XT3: It weighs too much. With the internal nine-cell internal battery pack, Asus M50Vm Battery this convertible laptop weighs 2.35kg - not something you'll want to hold in the crook of your arm for long (Dell says its 'target weight' for the XT3 with a six-cell battery is 2.1kg). Its accessories bump the total travel weight to 3kg, making Asus M51Vr Battery this portable a tough sell to road warriors. On the upside, the batteries just won't quit. The internal pack lasted for 8 hours, 23 minutes in lab tests, 3 hours longer than the average all-purpose laptop. When we popped on the optional nine-cell slice, it pumped battery life up to a marathon 19 hours, 46 minutes. However, that extra pack raises the total weight to 3.7kg. ASUS M70Vm Battery I'd hate to have to hoist the XT3 up into overhead baggage compartments on a regular basis, but I could easily shuttle it around the office between cubicles and meeting rooms. Visit: Business Advisor.The Dell Latitude XT3 is very smooth to use, with few snags. The 13.3-inch multitouch ASUS X72 Original Battery capacitive screen is a pleasure to view and tap on. Even though it's smaller than many all-purpose laptop screens, it offers a decent 1366-by-768-pixel resolution, and I could read text on it even in bright light. The keyboard comes with the usual Chiclet-style keys, Asus M51Sn Battery but they're very crisp and comfortable to type on. As for pointing devices, you get both an eraserhead pointer nested in the middle of the keyboard and a touchpad. I have two nitpicks: It's too easy to hit the Page Up and Page Down keys accidentally, and the hypersensitive eraserhead pointer sends the cursor dashing off in all directions. I stick with the touchpad, which works fine.

Samsung's Series 5 Ultra may not be a gaming machine or even a multimedia ASUS G73JH-A1 battery powerhouse, but it does have a DVD-RW drive, which is more than any other Ultrabook can say. Video looks good on the Series 5 Ultra, though high-resolution content occasionally suffers from artifacts such as blocks--especially in motion-heavy scenes--and ASUS G73JH-A2 battery general choppiness. The speakers, located along the top of the keyboard, produce loud but thin and bass-less sound.Here's the thing: Samsung pitches the Series 5 Ultra as the first Ultrabook to sport an optical drive. But it's not, because it's ASUS G73JH-RBBX05 battery not an Ultrabook. Sure, it may (barely) hit the 21mm thickness mark, but it contains a hard disk drive (along with a cache SSD for speedy startup) and it weighs 3.9 pounds. Don't get me wrong, this is a decent ultraportable laptop--it's just not at all what I think of when ASUS G73JH-X1 battery I think "Ultrabook." Still, if you're looking for a small laptop with more ports and functionality than an Ultrabook, the Samsung Series 5 Ultra is your machine.with medium or high detail settings. You'll want to use a real mouse for gaming, however, since trackpads ASUS G53 battery are inadequate for most PC titles.

The audio from the internal stereo speakers sounds exceptionally Dell Inspiron 14V Charger clean and vibrant. Bass is weak--typical for small speakers--but they don't sound tinny. The webcam, embedded in the screen's top panel between the array microphones, records remarkably sharp video at its maximum 1280-by-720-pixel resolution, and Dell Inspiron 14VR Charger you get lots of controls to adjust the recording levels, including gamma. The array mics clearly recorded my voice even when I stood 6 feet away. The XT3 makes an excellent station for conducting VoIP calls, such as over Skype.Typical of enterprise PCs, the XT3 comes loaded with slots and ports, offering extra security options (such as SmartCard access and an optional fingerprint reader) Dell Inspiron N4020 Charger and ensuring broad compatibility with different site installations. The XT3 comes with three dedicated USB ports plus a combo USB/eSATA port. My main beef: The USB ports max out at 2.0. For video, you get VGA and HDMI ports, but no DisplayPort. Dell Inspiron N4030 Charger Other slots and ports include those for a 34mm ExpressCard, SD Card or MultiMediaCard, FireWire, and a headset (but no separate mic).The Acer Timeline M3 laptop is a study in polar opposites. Its thin, elegant chassis and superb performance for its class suggest that the Dell Inspiron N4030D Charger M3 might be a true category leader, but a painfully poor LCD panel prevents the Acer from achieving that goal.

I’d love that if it were that simple, DELL XPS L501x Charger but you’re comparing a quad-core i7 to a dual-core i5. The integrated Intel HD chips have different max turbo speeds and other minor differences between each class of processor, don’t they? What are the comparable benchmark scores of a Dell XPS M1530 Charger Sandy Bridge laptop with an i7-2630QM quad but no discrete graphics? My guess is the jump is still closer to the original 50%–still great and all, but far from the big jump that Sandy Bridge was, and still not enough to make PC gamers think twice. Dell Vostro 1000 Charger But maybe I’m missing the point; I’m not a gamer anyway. Maybe the real headline is the big, optimistic jump in “WEI score for Windows Aero.” That was always galling, that a fancy Sandy Bridge Core i7 could only muster 4.7 or 5.0 on the Aero score, Dell Inspiron 1525 Charger weighing down the rest of the benchmark. And what if WEI isn’t just being optimistic; what if it’s true? I remember reading on Anandtech that lots of graphics cards somehow miss the boat on “2D acceleration,” which is the real problem for ordinary Windows navigation and web browsing. If the new Intel CPUs are better at handling 2D acceleration, Dell Latitude E6410 Charger could it be that Windows 8 will finally bring the fluid, buttery-smooth screen transitions and scrolling we’ve come to know and love in iOS and Android? Now that would change things.DELL Alienware M14x Charger

Generally these support pages Dell XPS 15z Charger show up and give a hint at what some of the specs are inside, such as driver references for certain graphics cards, but there are no hints at this current time. What we can at least guess at is that the ENVY 4 refers to a 14-inch screen laptop and the ENVY 6 a 15.6” DELL XPS L701x Charger screen. This would follow the number convention of the Pavilion dv4 (a 14-inch laptop) and dv6 (a 15.6-inch laptop). The early model numbers posted for the new ENVYs are as follows:The support pages for a product usually show up on HP.com 2 – 3 months DELL XPS L501x Charger before the actual release of a product, so it seems that these new ENVY models would be released around the July 2012 time frame. Intel recently said there would be 75 Ultrabooks coming out through the rest of this year, with 50% of them being 14 DELL XPS L401x Charger and 15-inch sized, so it could be that HP is pushing harder in that direction. Right now HP has the ENVY 14 Spectre and Folio 13, however the Spectre is not selling well due to its high price tag and the Folio 13 design is a little too business like and DELL XPS 17 Charger was originally just targeted at business buyers anyway. HP really needs an enticing sub $1,000 Ultrabook and it’s possible that’s where these ENVY models will fill in as larger and somewhat cheaper Ultrabook offerings. The current ENVY 15 and ENVY 17 DELL XPS 15 Charger already serve as the powerful multimedia / gaming rigs on the block for the ENVY series so it would be hard to see HP developing something to either replace or be close in specs to those models as they just came out a few short months DELL XPS 14 Charger ago.

For those that are not familiar,PA3594U-1BAS the IdeaPad Y480 will be the successor to the popular Y470 (we recently reviewed the Y470p), a portable 14” gaming capable laptop. The Y480 will carry-on the torch of being a budget friendly offering for a portable high performance laptop. PA3593U-1BRS It will carry the new Intel Core i5 and i7 Ivy Bridge family of processors for better performance and power efficiency. Other enhancements will be new Nvidia graphics card options and a backlit keyboard, which according to the video will be an optional feature to configure online. PA3593U-1BAS Design will remain much the same, although decorative touches on the lid will be updated.One disappointing aspect of the Y480 is that it appears there will be no option to upgrade to a higher resolution 900p screen, there will only be a 1366 x 768 resolution screen offering. PABAS230 However, the larger 15” screen Y580 slated to be released a few weeks after Y480 will have a higher resolution 900p screen as part of the configuration options.HP’s two flagship multimedia notebooks offer nearly identical configuration options yet the ENVY 17 PABAS229 is nearly $350 more – what are the real differences and what points should you consider when choosing one over the other? For this comparison we’ll matchup a high end HP dv7t Quad Edition configuration with a similar configuration of PABAS228 the ENVY 17.

Specifications-wise these two laptops are nearly identical; the main difference is in the port selection (the ENVY 17 has two PA3817U-1BRS DisplayPorts for running multiple monitors), battery life (the ENVY 17 gets 50% more life because it comes with a larger standard battery), and the dv7t is a bit lighter because it isn’t made of mostly metal.

The new Intel Ivy Bridge processors will feature a Dell Inspiron Mini 10 Charger smaller 22 nanometer fabrication process and offer more powerful performance but less power draw. That feat is achieved through use of new tri-gate transistors with faster switching capabilities than the current Sandy Bridge processors. There will also be more transistors per chip, Dell Inspiron Mini 1011 Charger and since more equals better performance that’s a good thing. Intel is claiming up to 20% improved processing performance and up to 50% improved graphics with the new HD 4000 integrated GPU. Even though performance improves the battery life will not suffer, in fact Intel is saying the reduced power consumption of the upcoming new Dell Inspiron Mini 10v Charger Core processors will save up to 20% on power, which could result in 20% better battery life. Couple that with a more power efficient SSD and the next generation of laptops are sure to push the limits of battery life.While we’ll have to wait until April 23rd for a lot of the official announcements regarding Ivy Bridge laptops, here are some of the pre-announced Dell Inspiron 1470 Charger or leaked upcoming laptops we know about:

Alienware P08G Battery

The rest of the Toughbook's Satellite T210D Battery configuration includes an Intel Core i5-2520M CPU, 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM and integrated Intel HD 3000 graphics. It's a notebook that will easily run most office applications and the CPU will provide enough grunt so that the notebook Satellite T215D Battery doesn't feel sluggish when multitasking. In our Blender 3D rendering test, the Toughbook took 51sec to complete our workload, which isn't the fastest we've seen from a notebook with a Core i5-2520M CPU — for example, the Satellite T230 Battery Toshiba Portege R830 took 40sec to complete this task using the same CPU. But the Toughbook is not purely about speed, it's about providing a notebook that can run field applications (and multiple ones simultaneously) without slowing you down. In 3DMark06, the unit scored 3118, which is respectable for a unit with integrated graphics.Satellite T235 Battery You won't want to use this laptop too often for typing, and you especially won't want to use it for long typing sessions. Its keyboard is very cramped due to the 10.1in form factor and there are keys in awkward positions, such as the arrow keys, which are in non-standard positions. It's fair to say that we've reviewed netbooks that have been more Satellite T235D Battery comfortable to type on than this Toughbook. Likewise, the touchpad on this notebook requires a fair bit of pressure to move the pointer across the screen accurately and it's very small; these characteristics make it tiring to use for extended NB505 Battery periods of time.

The small size of the Portege R400 Tablet PC Battery unit makes it uncomfortable to use, especially for long periods of time.It's important to note that if the Toughbook is being used heavily for extended periods of time, it will get very hot. There are no noticeable vents to keep the innards Qosmio F45 Battery cool and all the heat generated by the CPU and the other components will eventually be felt through the chassis. At some points during our tests we feared the notebook might overheat, but it kept running normally, even while it was very hot. Qosmio F40 Battery The manual states that it can operate in temperatures up to 50 degrees Celsius and with 80 per cent humidity (and down to -10 degrees and 30 per cent humidity).As for battery life, this unit lasted us 3hr 28min in our rundown test, in which we disable power management, Satellite L40 Battery enable Wi-Fi, maximise screen brightness and loop an Xvid-encoded video. This is a decent result for a Core i5 laptop, but perhaps a little low considering the small screen. The screen itself doesn't look great in terms of colour reproduction and richness — it's very pale. Equium L40 Battery The Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Wi-Fi adapter supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks, and there is a mobile broadband module installed (F5521gw) so that you can get online independently of Wi-Fi or your mobile phone Mini NB505 Battery hotspot.

Overall, the Panasonic Vostro 3350 Battery Toughbook CF-19 is perhaps a little too small to be practical. Its keys are small and the keyboard cramped overall, and its touchpad can be tiring to use. It could perhaps use an 11.6in or 12.1in form factor, which would make it a little more comfortable. inspiron 1440 Battery Or, you could opt for the CF-31, which has a 13.1in screen, although it lacks the ability to be converted into a tablet. If the size of the unit doesn't bother you, and you just want a tablet-convertible notebook that will stand up to the elements while you use Inspiron 1750 Battery it in the field, then go for it.The Toshiba Portégé Z830-104 is not going to win any beauty contests. We thought this business version of the Toshiba Satellite Z830 to be the least attractive of the ultrabooks we've tested recently, saved only from last place by the Lenovo X1. Alienware M11x Battery However, there is much to admire in the Toshiba Portégé Z830-104, the only ultrabook we've seen to sport full-sized ethernet, VGA and HDMI ports. It might not have the best definition screen - it’s a little fuzzy around the edges when compared to the display of the Alienware M11x R3 Battery MacBook Air - but it does have a genuinely non-reflective finish. There's plenty more to like about the Toshiba Portégé Z830-104, too. There's a fingerprint reader for additional security and the keyboard, in general, is a pleasure to use - though we were frustrated by the size of the Return key, Alienware M14x Battery which is too small.

The touchpad is Alienware M15x Battery smaller than those offered by most others in this group test but is easy to turn on and off, meaning that should you choose to use a mouse, then you'll not have to worry about knocking the cursor accidentally when typing. In terms of performance, the Toshiba Portégé Alienware P08G Battery Z830-104 is neither lightning fast nor painfully slow. And the battery life is decent without being outstanding.But the main differentiation point of the Toshiba Portégé Z830-104 is the multitude of connectivity options – the full-sized HDMI and VGA Inspiron Mini 1018 Battery ports for hooking up to monitors and projectors, and three USB ports too, one of them USB 3.0. Built-in gigabit ethernet makes connecting to wired networks easier than fumbling with USB adaptors, and faster too. Laptops with 14in screens are relatively Vostro 3555 Battery unusual in our part of the world, where 15in laptops are king. In Asian and Far Eastern markets, though, the 14in laptop is massively popular. Related ArticlesBut if there ever was a 14in model to excite a western audience, the Dell XPS 14z is Vostro 3750 Battery surely it.Taking plenty of inspiration from Apple's MacBook Pro, the design of the XPS 14z is modern, stylish and robust. The anodized aluminium chassis looks smart and the rounded edges add to the sleek Vostro 3550 Battery appearance.

When it’s opened up you'll find a backlit keyboard that VGP-BPS23/B offers plenty of room for even the most inaccurate of typists, while still fitting in large speakers either side. We had a minor issue with the keyboard; the keys’ font, though modern, doesn't seem quite in keeping with the rest of the design.Looking up from the VGPBPS23/B keyboard, you'll spot what is probably the Dell's real achilles heel - its screen. The 1366 x 768 resolution is meagre in comparison to other models - the XPS 15z we tested had 1920 x 1080 resolution - but definition is reasonably sharp and clear. VGP-BPL23 The colours look washed out, but it’s the glare from the glossy display that really irritated us. Reflective screens do not equate to comfortable use in most normal lighting conditions.But we did appreciate how it takes up almost the whole width of the chassis, so you're not left with a VGPBPL23 wastefully wide bezel. This means that the 14in screen can be fitted in to a chassis that's only 10mm wider than the 13in MacBook Air.The diminuitive frame and weight of just under 2kg mean that the XPS 14z is easy to carry around, even if it is far from attaining VGP-BPS23 'ultraportable' status. It should stand up to a battering if you do spend a lot of time on the road, though, and we're sure it'd be able to take the odd bump in its stride. The screen hinge looks particularly VGPBPS23 robust.

Blessed with a VGPBPS23/D second-generation Intel Core i7 processor, the 2.8GHz i7-2640M with Turbo Boost 2.0 technology (to push it to 3.5GHz when needed), and 8GB of RAM, the XPS 14z has more power than you can shake a stick at. A WorldBench 6 score of 143 is highly creditable, VGP-BPS23/D and though the nVidia GeForce GT 520M graphics card could only hit average frame rates of 46fps in FEAR at maximum settings - far from the best score we've seen - this is still quite respectable.For entertainment purposes, the lo-res screen and absence VGPBPS23/G of Blu-ray drive means HD video is not on the cards. Sound quality is pretty good though. It's more of an all-rounder that will offer decent performance and a good turn of speed in any task you should choose to set for it, rather than an out-and-out gaming, multimedia or VGP-BPS23/Gwork-focused laptop.The Dell has got a very capacious battery, lasting nearly 7 hours (406 mins) in our MobileMark 2007 Productivity tests. Given the quality and power of components this battery has to support, this is impressive. Connectivity options are decent, VGPBPS23/P with two USB ports - one of thee USB 3.0 - located at the back of the unit, as well as HDMI, Mini DisplayPort and gigabit ethernet. On the left-hand side you'll find a mic input and headphone jack as well as a multi-format card VGP-BPS23/P reader.

Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 70NLF1B2000Y is one of the more intriguing products to be announced this year and we got some hands on time at the Gadget Show Live 2012.The Yoga is a hybrid device and named because of its flexible nature. Rather than following the example of Asus' Transformer Prime - 70-NLF1B2000Z a tablet which plugs into a keyboard dock to make it a laptop, the IdeaPad Yoga is a laptop with a touchscreen which folds into a tablet.Lenovo has designed the device to be used in four different usage modes or positions called notebook, tablet, 70-NLF1B2000Y tent and stand. The first is a traditional laptop with a keyboard, trackpad and screen. You can then fold the screen all the way over to turn it into a tablet. The third mode involves positioning the device in a triangular tent-like fashion on a flat surface. VGP-BPS23/W Lastly you can have the keyboard facing the supporting surface and angle the screen as desired.The unit we saw at the Gadget Show Live wasn’t fully working so we weren't able to give it a proper run for its money. We'll reserve full judgment on performance and battery life for when we get the Yoga into our test VGPBPS23/W centre.

It's full marks from us on innovation and creativity for the IdeaPad Yoga. Inspiron M101 Battery The way it folds into different shapes certainly means it will adapt to different situations well. For example, the keyboard and trackpad are automatically disabled when using the Yoga in certain modes.It is quite big and heavy at 16.9mm and 1.47kg to Inspiron M101z Battery use a handheld tablet for any length of time but that's the nature of a hybrid device like this.The IdeaPad Yoga has a 13.3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 1600 x 900 and runs on Microsoft's Windows 8 operating Vostro 3450 Battery system.

The only thing that keeps this tank of a laptop from earning our Editors' Choice award is its above-average running temperature. Some may prefer the Panasonic Toughbook 31, which offers Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi2550 Battery a sealed all-weather design that can also handle 6-foot drops. However, the Toughbook doesn't have a Core i7 option like the Dell and it weighs over a pound more despite featuring a smaller 13-inch screen.

Designed to compete against the MacBook Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi2528 Battery Air but also tablets, Ultrabooks are superthin, resume from sleep almost instantly, and last nearly all day on a charge. And with second-generation Intel Core processors under the hood—and a new CPU explicitly designed for Ultrabooks on the way—shoppers should expect top-level performance.Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xi2550 Battery

Windows PC shoppers already FUJITSU LifeBook T580 Tablet PC Battery have a fair number of MacBook Air alternatives from which to choose, but in 2012 we’ll see lower prices and a wider range of sizes.An Ultrabook is a fundamental step forward in notebook design,” said Greg Welch, Director of the On-the-Go Market Segment for Intel’s Mobile Client Platforms group. “We think that with a variety of OEMs taking a FUJITSU LifeBook T580 Battery variety of approaches, there’s just more choice, there’s more competition, economies of scale get going. If you go to Best Buy’s site right now you’ll see Ultrabooks already listed as a category, which tells you how important this segment is for Intel, retailers, and anyone who Dell 0R160 makes a laptop. In fact, Intel started a $300 million fund just to jumpstart the Ultrabook ecosystem.The first Ultrabooks we reviewed fell a little flat because they cut too many corners. The Acer Aspire S3, for example, had a somewhat chintzy plastic body, while the Asus Zenbook UX31 had an amazingly attractive design marred by an erratic Dell 310-6322 touchpad.

Since then, however, we’ve seen a Dell 312-0339 steady improvement. The Toshiba Portege Z835 delivers fantastic value at just $849, while the HP Folio 13 impresses with extra-long battery life and a comfy backlit keyboard for $900. One of the best things about an iPad is that you can just pick it up, Dell 312-0349 turn it on, and start using the device immediately. And that’s exactly what Intel and its partners are trying to mirror with Ultrabooks, most of which feature highly responsive solid state drives. And because Ultrabooks are highly portable, you can just slip it out of a bag and start working—without having Dell 312-0350 to hunt for an outlet.

Toshiba Satellite P500-025 Battery

There isn’t much room for ports on the Series 9, laptop Battery Replacement but Samsung packs in a USB 3.0 port, microHDMI and an Ethernet adapter on the left, and a USB 2.0, mini VGA and a headphone port on the right. Also on the right is an SD card slot protected by a spring-loaded door. It’s a much more elegant method of maintaining acer Charger Replacement the curved sides of the Series 9 than resorting to plastic flaps that get in the way.Inside the Samsung Series 9 is a quad-core 1.7-GHz Intel Core i7-2637M processor, 4GB of RAM and a 128GB Samsung SSD, which returned very good results for an ultraportable. On PCMark07, which measures overall performance, the Series 9’s score of 3,653 was about 1,300 apple Charger Replacement points above the ultraportable average, and on par with the UX31 (3,606; 1.7-GHz Core i5) and the MacBook Air (1.7-GHz Core i5; 3,663). On Geekbench, the Series 9 did even better, scoring 6,024 to the MacBook Air’s 5,860 and the UX31’s 4,680.The Series 9 booted Windows 7 Home Premium in a fast 33 seconds, which is about half the asus Charger Replacement category average (56 seconds), but a bit behind the MacBook Pro (17 seconds), the Toshiba Portege Z835 (21 seconds) and the HP Folio 13 (26 seconds). Still, it woke from sleep in less than 3 seconds, which is on par with other dell Charger Replacement Ultrabooks.

It took just 5 minutes and 36 seconds for the Series 9 to churn through the Acer Aspire 4625 Battery LAPTOP Spreadsheet Macro Test, in which we use OpenOffice calc to match 20,000 names with their addresses. That’s almost half the category average (9:44), and beats out the MacBook Air (6:16), UX31 (5:50) and the Toshiba Z835 (11:36).Acer Aspire 4733Z Battery Only the Lenovo IdeaPad U300s (5:05) was faster.As an SSD, the 128GB drive in the Series 9 was good, but not great. It duplicated 5GB of multimedia files in 1 minute and 17 seconds, a rate of 66.1 MBps. That’s comfortably above the category average (41 MBps),Acer Aspire 4738 Battery but well below the UX31 (98 MBps) and the MacBook Air (127 MBps). The Intel HD graphics inside the Series 9 performed pretty much as expected, delivering enough power for watching videos and photo and video editing, but not enough for mainstream games. On 3DMark06, the Series 9 scored 3,931, which is better than the category average of 3,114, and the UX31 (3,731), Acer Aspire 4738G Battery but below the MacBook Air (4,236).

On World of Warcraft, Acer Aspire 4741G-5464G50Mn Battery with the display set to 1366 x 768 and graphics on their recommended setting, the Series 9 averaged 34 frames per second. That’s on par with most other Ultrabooks (the Toshiba Z835 averaged 32 fps and the UX31 averaged 26 fps), but below the MacBook Air (59 fps) and the category average (40 fps). At its native resolution and effects at max, Acer Aspire 4741G-5462G50Mnkk05 Battery the Series 9’s average dropped to an unplayable 13 fps.Aside from its clickpad, the one area where we hope Samsung improves the Series 9 is its battery life. On the LAPTOP Battery Test (web surfing via Wi-Fi at 40-percent brightness), Acer Aspire 4741G-5452G50Mnkk04 Battery the Series 9 lasted just 4 hours and 48 minutes, nearly 2 hours below the category average (6:36), the MacBook Air (6:25) and the Toshiba Z835 (6:48), not to mention the HP Folio 13 (7:50). Worse, that was about half an hour less than the original Series 9 (5:11).Considering that the Series 9 has a brighter panel than its competitors, Acer Aspire 4741G-432G50Mnkk01 Battery we also re-ran the battery test with the brightness set to 10 percent (about 34 lux), which was roughly equal to the MacBook Air at 40-percent brightness. Even then, the Series 9 lasted just 5:36.

There’s not too much in the way of Acer Aspire 4741G-372G50Mnkk06 Battery software on the Series 9. Utilities include Samsung Easy Settings, which, as the name implies, let us tweak things such as power settings, network, and audio controls. A customizable Software Launcher dock can be activated at the bottom of the screen, providing shortcuts to apps and utilities. It’s relatively unobtrusive, but we can see it taking up too much real Acer Aspire 4741G-372G50Mnkk02 Battery estate on a lower-res display.Preinstalled third-party apps include Microsoft Office 2010, Norton Online Backup and Internet Security and Skype. With the second edition of the Series 9, Samsung has improved upon the original in multiple ways. Acer Aspire 4741G-332G50Mn Battery More important, it’s smaller and lighter than the MacBook Air, and it boasts a better display and audio. We only hope that Samsung improves the clickpad performance and battery life by the time this notebook hits the market in February. Acer Aspire 4741G-332G32Mnsk Battery Both would have to improve significantly before we’d recommend paying $200 more than Apple’s ultraportable.Samsung is attacking the MacBook Air–and the rest of the Ultrabook field–with two new Series 5 Ultra laptops at CES 2012: a 13-incher that starts at $899 and a 14-incher that includes an optical drive. Available starting January 30th,Dell 310-5195 the Series 5 notebooks don’t offer the same premium features as Samsung’s flagship ultraportable, but you do get high-quality aluminum designs, Core i5 power and bright 300-nit displays with a nice matte (glare-free) Dell 312-0068 finish.

Read on to get all the Dell W1605 details and check out our extensive gallery and hands-on video below.The Samsung Series 5 Ultra has a smooth and sleek aluminum finish and a design that eschews the clickpad in favor of a touchpad with dedicated mouse buttons. We’re not complaining, since many of them are hit or miss. Dell U1544 While the keyboard isn’t backlit, the layout has more travel than the thinner Series 9. The 13-inch Samsung Series 5 Ultra weighs 3.24 pounds, while the 14-inch model weighs 3.94 pounds. Each notebook features a 1366 x 768 display, Dell G2053A01 but only the 14-inch Ultra includes a slim DVD drive for those who want it.To keep the cost down Samsung equips the Series 5 Ultra with a hybrid hard drive, which includes 500GB of storage and 16GB of ExpressCache memory. That memory helps the notebooks Dell G2053 boot in 20 seconds and wake from sleep in 2 seconds. Samsung even promises quicker web browsing via Internet Explorer, which we can’t wait to test out. Both Series 5 Ultras are rated for up to 7 hours of battery life. Viva la netbook! As we mentioned earlier today,Dell C2603 ASUS is releasing new netbooks at CES 2012 and we had the chance to check out two of them, the Eee PC Flare 1025C and the Eee PC Dell C1295 X101CH.

The Eee PC Flare 1025C Toshiba Satellite P500-024 Battery continues the 10.1-inch netbook tradition with a 6-cell battery that ASUS says will last up to 10 hours in mixed-mode, meaning a combination of web surfing, YouTube watching and productivity applications, and two weeks in standby. Though it weighs 2.7 Toshiba Satellite P500-025 Battery pounds, the system felt light in our hands and with a slim profile– but nothing as impressive as the company’s Zenbooks. Though we weren’t able to turn the system on, the keyboard felt roomy enough and similar to ASUS’s more recent netbook keyboards. Toshiba Satellite P500-026 Battery For $299, the Eee PC Flare 1025C comes with a 1.6- GHz Atom Cedar Trail processor, 2GB RAM, 320GB hard drive and Altec Lansing speakers. As you’ll see in our gallery below, it’s available in a wide-array of colors Toshiba Satellite P500-12D Battery and finishes.

ASUS also debuted the Eee PC X101CH, Toshiba Satellite P500-12F Battery which features 2-second instant resume and, in spite of its 3-cell battery, two weeks of standby time. It features the same Intel Atom Cedar Trail processor as the Flare 1025C, 1GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive for $269. It’s also 0.4 pounds lighter than the Flare,Toshiba Satellite P500-14L Battery though we barely noticed the weight difference. The X101CH doesn’t look as refined as the Flare; its black plastic bottom was an instant contrast to its deep red lid. It’s not thick, but the profile of the machine isn’t as thin as the Flare either.ASUS pulled back the curtains on a number of updates to a few of its core products. One is the ASUS Transformer Prime TF700T. Acer Aspire 4738Z Battery The upscaled version of last year’s Transformer Prime TF201 has all the slim, quad-core Tegra 3 goodness of the previous model, but adds a 1920 x 1200p display and support for 1080p playback.The tablet’s rear has undergone a redesign. The majority of the back panel is done Acer Aspire 4738ZG Battery in aluminum leaving a thick strip of plastic lining the top. The new look has more to do with function than aesthetics, however, as ASUS claims the new look will improve Wi-Fi and GPS performance. The front-facing camera received a bump from 1.2 to 2 megapixels. Acer Aspire 4739 Battery The biggest change is that the updated Prime will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

The Zenbook has also Acer Aspire 4741G Battery gotten a makeover. While none of the specs have changed, ASUS has released two new color schemes based on customer requests. The gorgeous 13-inch UX31 is now available in Rose Gold and Hot Pink. The biggest update, though, is the touchpad. The original Zenbook Acer Aspire 4741 Battery featured a Sentelic-powered touchpad that presented a number of difficulties, including stuttering and unexplainable jumpiness. The new models will feature Elan touchpads with updated drivers that ASUS claims will improve resume and standby times.Acer Aspire 4739Z Battery The 32GB Transformer Prime TF700T is set to hit stores during the second quarter of the year, retailing at $599. The 64GB version will be priced at $699. No word on pricing or availability on the new Zenbook, but stay tuned for more coverage. Dell 312-0408 In the meantime, check out our gallery below.Taiwan-based Gigabyte Technology sure made its trek out to Vegas a productive one; the company has five new products on display at CES 2012. Among them are an Intel Atom-powered slate, a 3-in-1 tablet/notebook/desktop, and a multimedia laptop Dell 312-0084 with a Blu-ray player.

The 11.6-inch Booktop T1132N is a laptop Dell 312-0090 that Gigabyte says can be used as a notebook, a tablet, and even a desktop. (The docking station allows the T1132N to transform into desktop mode.) The Booktop runs a 2nd-Generation Intel Core i5 CPU and Nvidia GeForce GT520M graphics Dell 312-0191 with Optimus technology. There are also two dual-channel speakers and two woofers with THX TruStudio Pro audio technology, plus HDMI and USB 3.0 ports. In addition to allowing the T1132N become a desktop when connected to peripheral devices, Dell 312-0309 the docking station adds in a SuperMulti DVD drive. On the tablet front, there’s the Gigabyte S1081, a 10.1-inch Windows 7 slate designed for the business set. Intel’s new Atom Cedar Trail CPU runs under the hood, and the S1081 will be sold with one of two storage option: Dell 315-0084 a 500GB hard drive or an SSD for prioritizing speed. The included specs are nothing to scoff at: HDMI, VGA, USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, and a 1.3-megapixel webcam are all on board. There’s an optical trackpad to supplement the capacitive touchscreen. Gigabyte designed a docking station for the S1081, and this adds a DVD drive and two stereo/two Dell 3R305 woofer speakers.

We haven’t seen too Dell 4M983 many convertible tablets in the last few months, but Gigabyte’s got a new one in the T1006M. The slate features a 10.1-inch, 1366 x 768-pixel capacitive display and, like the S1081 tablet, packs Intel Atom Cedar Trail. A USB 3.0 is on board, and Gigabyte says the Dell 4P894 T1006M is 3.5G-ready.Gigabyte also has some basic notebooks to unveil here in Las Vegas. The Gigabyte P2532F sports a 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080p screen, four dual-channel stereo speakers, a Blu-ray drive, and a 7,200-rpm,Dell 7W999 750GB hard drive. The laptop backs up that multimedia power with a Core i7 CPU and Nvidia GeForce GT555M graphics with a full 2GB of RAM.The second notebook, the Booktop M2432, has a thinner and lighter design than the P2532F. It features an Intel Core i5 Dell 9X821 processor, a 14-inch backlit display, Intel’s integrated HD 3000 graphics, and an Nvidia GT 440 GPU. Gigabyte is touting the Booktop M2432′s desktop-like functionality, as there are six USB ports, HDMI, D-Sub, DVI, and more ports on the Dell BAT1194 system.

Acer LC.BTP01.010

The Razer Blade’s Asus 90-NQY1B1000Y most interesting feature, however, is the touchscreen that doubles as a touchpad and the 10 customizable keys above it. Razer calls this its Switchblade UI and we’ve never seen anything like it. The 10 light-up keys themselves are little tiny screens that show Asus 90-NQY1B2000Y different images on them, depending on how you customize them and on the application.In a demo today, a product manager showed us how one of the Switchblade keys could put the touchpad into numeric keypad mode, SAMSUNG P580 Battery where the touchpad screen shows number keys and the 10 keys change into controls that change the design of the numeric keypad into, for example, touchscreen arrows. Another Switchblade button launches a tiny web browser on the touch screen while a third launches YouTube. A Razer product manager said that gamers can watch YouTube walkthroughs of their SAMSUNG NP-P580 Battery games on the tiny screen so they don’t have to exit the game on the main display.The Switchblade UI also lets you customize the light-up keys to launch any game macros or applications you want. You can even create your own little icons to display on the keys. SAMSUNG NT-P580 Battery A Razer rep showed us how these settings are saved in the cloud via the company’s Synapse 2.0 software so, if you have other Razer products with the same features, those settings will transfer over. In fact, we later saw a Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming SAMSUNG P230 Battery keyboad that also has the SwitchBlade UI features.

We had a chance to Samsung NP-N310 Battery witness the Razer Blade playing Firefall on its 1080p screen and were impressed with the smooth video and sharp images. However, we lifted one of the notebooks off the table and noticed that the bottom was extremely hot as was a right side vent. Samsung NP-N310 Battery The Razer Blade should start shipping at the end of this month for $2,799. We can’t wait to test it more thoroughly. erious gamers, take note: Samsung is throwing down the gauntlet with the Series 7 Gamer. We got a first look today at CES Samsung N310-KA07 Battery at the 17-inch system, a top of the line desktop replacement that looks to blow away Alienware’s benchmark scores– and maybe even its battery life, too.The Series 7 Gamer will only be available in one configuration, but it’s likely to be the only one you’d want: a next generation Intel Core i7 Samsung N310-KA06 Battery processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX670 with 2GB of graphics memory and a 2TB hard drive. To keep the battery going a little longer, there’s a mode knob which lets you choose between a miserly, power-saving mode, a balanced power mode and gaming mode. Samsung N310-KA05 Battery When you go into gaming mode, the processor ramps up and– depending on your preferences– the touchpad and Windows key are disabled. A nifty animation also lets you know that you’re ready to take over your virtual world. The backlit keyboard glows with a warm blue, Samsung N310-KA04 Battery but the directional .

The company Acer LC.BTP01.011 also makes a cable, called the Wormhole Switch, that enables the same thing. The docking station is a more comprehensive version, though, providing the extra ports. Either way it’s far more convenient than swapping thumb drives. Acer LC.BTP01.010 The Wormhole station sells for about $100 (depending on the retailer), the Switch for about $30-40.It starts out with the small suspicion that something is wrong. You notice your laptop takes much longer than usual to complete a simple task. Or you open that file for Acer LC.BTP00.022 your big report only to find it a mess of garbled characters and unreadable text. For a brief moment, you consider the possibility that you’ve gone crazy. Then you actually pray this is true, because you’d much rather accept that explanation over the more likely Acer LC.BTP00.021 alternative: Your computer is infected.But hold on. Before you embark on that disk defragmentation spree, know that there may be hope for you yet. One of the trickiest problems in PC troubleshooting is figuring out whether a machine is Acer GARDA32 sick or if it is simply old and needs upgrading — especially because malware creators do their best to conceal their nefarious activities. This allows them to stealthily gobble up your computing power to run their self-serving processes.Acer GARDA31

Fortunately, HP HSTNN-DB31 there are several signposts that can help you tell whether your laptop is indeed infected, or just outdated. To help spend less time fretting and more time deciding what your next steps should be, we enlisted the expertise of Jacques Erasmus, chief information security officer for HP HSTNN-C17C Webroot, and Catalin Cosoi, global research director for BitDefender, both leading antivirus companies. Pop-up windows — especially those that occur frequently and unexpectedly — can be indicative of malicious software installed HP EX941AA on your computer.“Pop-ups are certainly a sign that you may be infected,” said Erasmus. “This is normally a sign of adware or a trojan clicker.” Erasmus explained that malware authors get money for each click and pop-up served.“Basically, adware tries to increase HP EX940AA rankings of websites through advertising,” Cosoi said. “By clicking on those [pop-ups] you’ll increase the revenue for displays, companies, and increase the rankings on Google searches.”One or two pop-ups might be harmless, but be wary when they start to HP EV089AA occur more and more frequently. Clicking on them is never a good idea. “Some of them can lead you to different malware samples,” Cosoi confirmed. “They’ll convince you a certain product or service exists to hook you, but it could just be more bad software HP EV088AA installing itself on your PC.”

So the next time SAMSUNG NP-P230 Battery you come across that ad for designer handbags at 97 percent off or a closing sale at the Amazon electronics department, think twice about whether this would be a likely promotion, or if it just seems too good to be true. With a badly infected PC, SAMSUNG NT-P230 Battery you’ll end up paying a lot more in time than whatever savings that ad promised.2. Your online bank account has mysterious withdrawals. It’s a scheme known as Internet banking fraud, where malware can embed itself in your computer and detect Samsung N310 Battery when you access online banking sites. The software can record your username and password and transmit it to the offending party, after which the information is used to make withdrawals, move money to another account or make purchases.“To Samsung N310 Battery confirm if you are infected, look at the time of login for any evidence of additional fields that you would not normally see at the bank login page,” Erasmus advised. “These may be asking for additional pieces of information such as an ATM PIN number,Samsung N310-13GB Battery or asking for more letters of your password.” Say, for instance, that the bank normally asks for three letters of your password and now it’s asking for six. This may be a clear sign that you have a banking trojan on your machine, Samsung N310-13GBK Battery which does form injections to try and steal your credentials.

Cosoi also weighed in. “There are Samsung N310-KA03 Battery two ways offenders can gain access to your bank account,” he explained. “One of them is by installing malware in your computer, which contains keylogging components.” These programs will record every key you press, letting offenders have access to Samsung N310-13GO Battery your credentials. And then they can further use your account to make withdrawals, for money laundering, or to take money from your account and transfer it to theirs.You can also fall victim to phishing scams. In other words, you might find yourself on HP 446507-001 a fake page that tries to pose as your bank account. “They try to look exactly like your bank, with an area for a login as well,” warned Cosoi. “But logging in actually brings you to a different website — and you gave them your credentials.”Public computers, HP 454931-001 such as the ones in Internet cafés and airports, are especially susceptible to this type of threat; never use them to access sensitive information such as your online bank account. You work regularly on the same PC, and though you don’t glance at your settings every day, HP 455804-001 you’re pretty confident you remember how you’ve set them up. So you’re taken aback when your desktop suddenly looks a lot different than it did the day before. What’s going on?HP 460143-001

Your computer may be infected, Cosoi said. “Different user settings that change without the user’s intervention, HP 462337-001 like your homepage, icons that point to different applications — things like that can indicate your PC is sick.” If your computer gets bogged down doing menial tasks that it used to do effortlessly, it may be infected with malware. Acer BTP-ANJ1 Some pieces of code are carefully programmed to go undetected, and their main objective is to steal part of your computing muscle to power malicious activities online, such as spreading viruses, generating spam and installing spyware on other computers. Acer BTP-AOJ1 It’s a big sign you may have a virus, though detecting whether the source is malicious can be tricky.Erasmus agrees. “This could be an indication of an infection; however, this could also be due to some software you have installed that might be consuming Acer BTP-APJ1 a lot of CPU cycles,” he said. “It really is a mixture of various factors which will all come together to indicate an infection.”So what should you look out for? “Some signs to watch out for are when websites are loading slower, or opening applications Acer BTP-AQJ1 takes longer than usual,” Cosoi suggested. However, only a positive virus scan result can confirm that you actually have a virus rather than a legit program that is slowing down your computer.

5. You’re randomly Acer BTP-ARJ1 connected to various websites. When your PC is infected with a virus, it’s possible that the malware will force-connect you to websites in the background and send information back and forth with these sources. So how does malicious code wreak havoc Acer BTP-AS3620 on your PC in the first place?“You can get infected by using pirated software, downloading or opening attachments in your spam folder, or even just by visiting different websites,” explained Cosoi. He said that malware writers exploit the Acer BTP-ASJ1 vulnerability in a web browser and then manage to inject a little piece of code called a downloader. The downloader will then start connecting to different servers or different Acer BTP-B2J1 websites.
