Dell XPS 12 Review

P1130625

The Dell XPS 12 has caught the attention of many people since it leaked last May but that could be attributable to it having one of the coolest design features we’ve ever seen on an Ultrabook. The flip-screen is impressive. But is it useful? And how good is the XPS 12 as a laptop? Read-on for the full review.

Dell XPS 12–First Report from the ‘Lab.’

Dell XPS 12 Image Gallery (7)

The Dell XPS 12 has been sent for a quick review via the guys at Ultrabook-king.de and I’ve had a chance to do some testing already. The first thing I noticed was how solid it feels. The hinge, frame, casing and keyboard seem top-notch although, probably as a result, it feels dense and a little heavy; Certainly too heavy to be a casual tablet.  Here’s a first-report and your chance to ask questions.

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 Review

 

Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13 (40)

The Yoga 13 is a truly exiting form factor and a well-made device. It’s a good Ultrabook and yet there are serious issues to be considered. The Yoga 13 is missing a few features and fails on a few aspects related to the convertible form-factor and convergence. Read on for a full review of the Lenovo Ideapad Yoga 13.

Lenovo Yoga 13 First Impressions

2013-01-08-1336

I’m a little bit behind the curve on reviewing the Lenovo Yoga 13 but given the amount of interest that we’ve had on the Yoga 13 over the last year (yes it was a year ago I had my first hands-on) it’s worth spending some time on a detailed review. Before that though, here’s my first impressions after 4-5 days usage.

Toshiba Satellite U940 Review (U945 in the USA)

Toshiba U940 U945 (25)

When I first had hands-on with the Toshiba U940 I was a little worried that it might be built too cheaply. The casing and styling weren’t exactly top-of-the-range but it turns out that Toshiba have put together quite an honest package here. Don’t judge an Ultrabook by the cover because the Toshiba U940 has some unique features and good all-round performance. Read-on to find out more.

Lenovo Thinkpad Twist Review

Lenovo Thinkpad Twist (25)

Business and pleasure mixed into a fun and inspirational package. The touch-swivel Windows 8 Lenovo Thinkpad Twist is a solid performer with an excellent working fascia for many scenarios. It’s not a consumer tablet though and there are one or two characteristics to be aware of but at a starting price of $899 for a Core i5 variant (959 Euro, 899 Euro street price) we think it offers solid value for money.

Lenovo Thinkpad Twist Detailed Video Overview (Chippy Does The Twist!)

chippy twist

It’s been a busy, but enjoyable weekend with the Lenovo Thinkpad Twist. It fits right into the way I use laptops, the way I like to interact with laptops and the quality I like to see. Is it what YOU want from an laptop though. This Ultrabook Convertible has a great working fascia, extensive set of ports and one of the more popular convertible designs – the rotating screen that not only turns the Twist into a lappable tablet (it’s not a handheld) it also offers some other use cases.

I’ve put together a fairly detailed video overview for you and I think, if you’re considering the Twist, you’ll be able to work out if it’s really one for you. Check it out below.

Lenovo Thinkpad Twist Day 1 Review

Since 2006 I’ve owned three swivel-screen laptops and one of them, the Gigabyte Touchnote, became completely ingrained in my mobile computing life. The Lenovo Twist is a similar size and weight but it offers quite a bit more. We’re talking about a useful and desktop-capable Core i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hybrid HDD and 5-point capacitive touch. This little Ultrabook Convertible is running Windows 8 and also includes a great set of ports. To top it off there’s an IPS display. Out of the box it’s an extremely exciting form factor and it looks and feels both stylish and strong. My first thoughts were ‘I need this Ultrabook.’ After 4 hours of testing I’m still very positive but there are a couple of things that are annoying me.
