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.

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.

Toshiba Portege R705 Review

Toshiba Portege R705 Review

Toshiba's Portege R705 is an unexpected addition to the company's ultraportable range. Based on the Portege R700 unveiled as part of Toshiba's 25th anniversary for notebooks, the R705-P25 is a Best Buy exclusive with an MRSP of $889.99 but a street price that scrapes in at under $800. That makes it the cheapest Portege to date, and Toshiba would like us to remember it's also the lightest 13.3-inch notebook with an integrated optical drive (outside of Japan, at least). Light in the bag and light on the wallet: is the downside lightweight performance? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7022 Review

Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7022 Review

Desktop replacement notebooks may pull together the computing experience with more of a nod to portability than the average PC tower, but there's also a price sacrifice to be made if you want the same crunching abilities. Into this hotly contested field steps Toshiba with the Satellite L675D-S7022, a 17.3-inch notebook that sneaks in at under the $800 mark. Is this the budget desktop replacement to beat? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Gateway NV59C Notebook Review

Gateway NV59C Notebook Review

As notebook markets go, the 15.6-inch segment is probably the most hotly contested; manufacturers are forced to look to gaming, multimedia or battery longevity in order to differentiate their wares. Gateway's NV59C09u picks HD video as its forte, squeezing in a Blu-ray drive as standard together with easy connectivity for your HDTV. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review

It's not enough for a 14-inch notebook to deliver decent runtimes, a little processor grunt and pleasing looks any more; now we expect graphical excellence too. In response, Lenovo have outfitted their IdeaPad Y460 with a dedicated ATI Radeon GPU, and they've even thought to put a switch on the front which allows you to turn it off when you're feeling more spreadsheet than gaming minded. Two birds with one stone, or just a lame duck? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

MacBook Pro 13-inch Review (Early 2010)

MacBook Pro 13-inch Review  (Early 2010)

In contrast, the 13-inch MacBook Pro saw a more modest refresh; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

MacBook Pro 15-inch Core i7 Review

MacBook Pro 15-inch Core i7 Review

It's taken Apple nine long months to update their MacBook Pro range, and most people would agree that the Intel Core i5 and Core i7 refresh has arrived not a moment too soon. Intel's latest processors bring with them a new, intelligent graphics system and a slightly higher price of entry - $1,799 rather than $1,699 - along with the promise of greater battery life and better performance. Hyperbole or must-have? Check out the full SlashGear review to find out.

Hercules eCAFÉ EC-1000W Review

Hercules eCAFÉ EC-1000W Review

In the grand scheme of netbooks, Hercules probably isn't a name you associate with budget ultraportables; the company is taking their first step into the market with the eCAFÉ EC-1000W. A 10-inch Atom N270 machine, there's little on the spec list that makes the EC-1000W stand out among the rank and rile, so is this yet another me-too model or a netbook worth considering? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
