Dell XPS 11 tackles Lenovo Yoga with bendy-flexy ultrabook

Dell XPS 11 tackles Lenovo Yoga with bendy-flexy ultrabook

Dell is taking a low-key approach to Computex this year, with a key product to cut through rivals' bloated ranges. This time around, it's the Dell XPS 11, an 11-inch hybrid that's fronted by a 2,560 x 1,440 touchscreen, and which can fold around fully to make it a tablet. In case you hadn't spotted it already, it's something of a riff on Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 11 we played with last April.

ASUS Zenbook Infinity wraps super-skinny ultrabook in Gorilla Glass 3

ASUS Zenbook Infinity wraps super-skinny ultrabook in Gorilla Glass 3

Once upon a time, glass was a fragile thing; now, thanks to toughening tech, ASUS can splash a slab of the stuff across the top of its new Zenbook Infinity notebook. Topped by a sheet of Gorilla Glass 3, the same toughened material as we're used to seeing fronting smartphones and tablets, the Zenbook Infinity uses that extra rigidity and strength to drop a dress size, metaphorically speaking, and trim things down to just 15.5mm at its thickest.

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook gets Haswell reboot with optional WQHD

While Acer is pushing forth several machines this week that take on the mantel of an entirely new design in and of themselves at Computex, the Acer Aspire S7 looks, on the surface, to be the same machine as it was earlier this year. Under the surface though is a reboot that means more than just accepting the 4th generation of Intel Core (Haswell) processors. Included in this reboot of the Aspire S7 is 2nd generation Acer TwinAir cooling, new electroluminescent (EL) backlit keyboard technology, and a new option for a display sharper than its already-1080p-wielding predecessor.

HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Notebook Review

HP Spectre XT TouchSmart Notebook Review

We have recently spent some time working (and playing) with the HP Spectre XT TouchSmart notebook computer. Specifically, we have been using the 15-4010nr Ultrabook model. This is a Windows 8 machine and it happens to be sporting a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display and as implied by the TouchSmart in the name -- this one is a touchscreen notebook. The notebook looks good, feels solid and has specs to match. Of course, on the flip side of that, the HP Spectre XT TouchSmart isn't the lowest priced notebook on the market. The pricing starts at $1,399.99 and while we cannot say whether this notebook will be needed by all, we can share some opinions that will help you answer that question for yourself. With that, read on for our full HP Spectre XT TouchSmart 15-4010nr Ultrabook review.

Acer Aspire R7 Hands-on: Spock’s Choice

This week SlashGear is having a peek at the Acer Aspire R7 notebook - that rather unique piece of machinery you saw advertised last month aside teasers for the newest Star Trek movie. It's no surprise that this device was chosen to take on that role as its mysterious - and here we find rather enticing - abilities allow it to look like a rather familiar starship. With Acer's "Ezel" hinge, the Aspire R7 can take on several shapes - including that of the Kirk-captained Enterprise.
