Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T Review

Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830T Review

There was a time when an ultraportable notebook would invariably cost well in excess of $1,000 and offer performance suited to little more than emailing. Now Acer's Aspire TimelineX AS1830T-68U118 drops onto the scene, a sub-$900 11.6-inch ultraportable packing an Intel Core i7 processor and a claimed battery life of up to eight hours. Too good to be true? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

VIA ARTiGO A1100 Review

VIA ARTiGO A1100 Review

VIA is well known for its ultra-compact mainboards and low power CPUs, though Intel's Atom processors have generally cornered the market when it comes to nettops. The VIA ARTiGO A1100 is the company's attempt to remedy that, a palm-sized barebones PC that's smaller than a stack of DVD cases and yet, they claim, is capable of 1080p Full HD via an HDMI output. Is the ARTiGO A1100 the DIY HTPC we've been waiting for? Check out the full review after the cut.

Clearwire Rover Puck Review

Clearwire Rover Puck Review

Our pockets and bags are overflowing with portable gadgets - iPads, PSPs, netbooks and notebooks - and they all have a taste for data. Portable mobile hotspots have flourished to satisfy that demand, and most recent is Clearwire's Rover Puck, a futuristically designed way to share a 4G connection between up to eight WiFi-connected devices while on the move. Are Clearwire's contract-free plans enough to make up for the absence of a fall-back 3G connection? Check out the full review after the cut.

Lenovo ThinkStation C20 Review

Lenovo ThinkStation C20 Review

Big computers generally mean big performance, but does a PC need to be imposing in order to blitz through the benchmarks?  Lenovo's ThinkStation C20 is the baby of the range when it comes to physical size, but with dual Intel Xeon processors and NVIDIA's Quadro FX 4800 graphics, it's no slowpoke. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Clear iSpot Review

Clear iSpot Review

Wireless hotspots are relatively commonplace these days, billed as straightforward ways to get all your WiFi devices online without paying a cellular modem subscription for each. The Clear iSpot, then, is an odd fish: while it's capable of supporting up to eight WiFi clients simultaneously, they're all meant to be Apple mobile devices like the iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. Have one of those and you can be enjoying 4G speeds for a bargain monthly fee; anything else and - officially - you're out of luck. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

HP ENVY 14 Review

HP ENVY 14 Review

The baby of HP's second-generation ENVY premium notebook range has arrived on the SlashGear test bench, and we have to admit it's a pretty appealing machine. Packing a 14.5-inch display, Intel Core i5 CPU and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 graphics, it may look a little like a MacBook Pro but happily HP has also carried over the solid build quality. Still, are good looks enough to ween users off their Apple addiction? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

AVADirect Clevo W880CU Gaming Notebook Review

AVADirect Clevo W880CU Gaming Notebook Review

Clevo may not quite be a household name, but the company's mid- and high-end laptops have been thoroughly rebadged and neatly demonstrated the Clevo heritage. Fresh to the SlashGear test bench is the Clevo W880CU, courtesy of AVADirect, a monstrous Core i7 behemoth of a machine with a 17.3-inch display and 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480M graphics. At almost $3,000, does the performance warrant the price tag? Check out the full review after the cut.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150 Review

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150 Review

While ultra-compact nettops have been around for some time now, they're still yet to revolutionize the HTPC market as we were initially promised. Hoping to change all that is Lenovo with their new IdeaCentre Q150, packing NVIDIA's Ion 2 GPU paired with a low-power Intel Atom CPU. Lenovo say it's good for 1080p HD; does the real-world experience live up to the spec sheet? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Synology DiskStation DS411+ NAS Review

Synology DiskStation DS411+ NAS Review

Synology promised us speed, speed and more speed with their new DiskStation DS411+ NAS, and so we had to take them up on the challenge. A four-drive RAID array targeted at demanding home users or SMBs, the DS411+ may look sober on the outside but with the spec sheet promising read rates of 112MB/sec and write rates of 106MB/sec, it's hardly an unattractive proposition. Can Synology back up their claims? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
