MacBook Air 13-inch core i5 Review (mid-2011)

Apple's MacBook Air left many mobile users with a difficult decision back in late 2010. The unibody ultraportable was certainly beautiful, but its ULV processor left some wary that OS X might not be able to keep up with their lifestyle. The new 2011 MacBook Air fixes that, slotting in Intel's latest Core i5 and i7 chips and adding other niceties such as a backlit keyboard. Is this the best ultraportable on the market today? Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Acer TimelineX AS5830TG-640 Review

Acer TimelineX AS5830TG-640 Review

With great power comes great responsibility, and also - if you're talking about Intel's 2011 Sandy Bridge processor line-up, at least - generally sizable pricing.

MacBook Pro 15-inch Review (early 2011)

MacBook Pro 15-inch Review (early 2011)

Apple's MacBook Pro refresh last week didn't get a press event with huge fanfare, but it's arguably the most important update to the notebook range in some time. Bringing in Intel's 2011 Core processor range across the board, and spicing up the larger models with AMD discrete graphics, the new versions may look the same but they promise a huge leap in performance. The high-end 15-inch MacBook Pro arrived on the SlashGear test bench last Thursday and we've been putting it through its paces ever since. Could this really be the best notebook around? Check out the full review after the cut.

Lenovo U260 IdeaPad Notebook Review

Lenovo U260 IdeaPad Notebook Review

The following is a review of the black and orange Lenovo U260 IdeaPad Windows 7 notebook - a super-comfortable little businessman made for ultra-stylish checkings of online business and perhaps even the playing of some games. The very first thing you'll notice about this laptop is that it is a fantastic shade of orange - this is one of two colors it can be, (the other being Mocha,) but that's not the reason you'll stick around. Nor is the most comfortable experience I've had with a notebook since I first started using MacBooks - use this factoid in your judgement of MY judgement, because it makes me a hard customer to sell when it comes to notebooks outside of the industrial designer brilliance employed by Apple. Note first and foremost that I think Apple's people should talk to Lenovo's people here if they ever plan on moving away from hard plastic and flat metal surfaces.
