Review: Lenovo IdeaPad Y480

We’re finally receiving laptops featuring the third-generation “Ivy Bridge” processor. This CPU, still named under the Intel Core series conventions, isn’t just shrunken down using a new 22nm process, it’s also a 3-D chip that has stacked components, the first time this technology has been used in a mass-produced CPU. Of course, if you don’t…

Review: HP Envy 13

Now that the hungry maw of Hewlett-Packard has devoured Voodoo, the company has been hard at work splicing “Voodoo DNA” into its mainstream products. Here’s one result: A laptop that looks a lot like an HP Pavilion but carries the high price of a boutique notebook. HP’s $1,800, 13-inch Envy 13 flies in the same…

Review: Gateway UC7807u

Review: Samsung NC10

The best part of this beautiful paragon of plastic and chrome is its keyboard. It’s not exactly standard size, but it’s proportioned to feel as if it were. The trackpad is nice and wide, too. And though small, the NC10 ain’t no minuteman. The battery lasts an incredible 5 hours, tying the Eee PC. Spread…

Review: Gateway M-151X

What gives? We’ve been more or less smitten with every Gateway system that’s entered our lair in the past few months, the M-151X being no exception. Maybe the magical Gateway gnomes have been spiking our Evian? (Magical gnomes…sheesh!) Or maybe the engineers at Gateway have just been taking the time and effort to pound out…

Review: Acer Aspire 4820TG

Anyone who knows anything about computers inevitably has the conversation with a friend who’s nervous about buying a new laptop. He knows nothing about computers and is worried to death about getting ripped off. He’s scoured the web for reviews but now he’s shopping around for a good deal. Eventually the question is put to…
