Alienware Area 51 M9750 review – Media powerhouse

Alienware Area 51 M9750 review – Media powerhouse

An Alienware computer is a mythical beast. Ever since Alienware started making computers in 1996, gamers and power hungry PC addicts have drooled over their speed, processing power, and overall design. This is the first time I've ever spent more than a couple hours with an Alienware machine, so I wasn't truly privy to the finer points of an Alienware. All I can really say is that I've never been so impressed with the performance of a notebook computer.

SlashGear Review – Toshiba Qosmio F45

I've had the opportunity to use the Qosmio F45 for a little while now, and it's come time for me to let you guys know just how this machine performs. As with many of my reviews, I'm not going to focus on benchmarks as I am actual usability, because lets face it, that's what really matters.

SlashGear Review: Gateway MT6839b Laptop

SlashGear Review: Gateway MT6839b Laptop

How long will it be until the desktop PC is, for mainstream customers at least, pronounced dead?

Their UK arm were good enough to send me an MT6839b - a model currently sold in this country's leading supermarket retailer Tesco - but equivalents of which can be found in other channels too. With a MRSP of £599 ($1,220 at today's awful exchange rate) it's a good example of an entry-point machine for families and students.

Hands on with the Toshiba P205

Hands on with the Toshiba P205

Today I'm reviewing the Toshiba P205, specifically the P205-S6237. This notebook packs a lot of features into the sub-$1000 price. You get a Pentium D T2080 processor with 1GB RAM and a 120GB hard drive, a beautiful 17” widescreen WXGA+ screen capable of 1440 x 900, a DVD burner, 802.11b/g wireless and a built-in webcam. That's a lot of bang for your buck. But how does it really stack up?
