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 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.

Alienware M11x Review

Alienware M11x Review

It's usually pretty straightforward: an 11.6-inch notebook will deliver battery life but lack grunt, while a larger machine is more likely to pack performance at the expense of liberty from a power point. The Alienware M11x promises to change all that; while it may have the diminutive dimensions of a CULV notebook, its overclocked processor and switchable discrete graphics claim to make it a gamer's machine where longevity is a choice. Is the M11x really the best of both worlds? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Does the IdeaPad S10-3t tick all our tablet boxes? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Viewsonic ViewBook Pro VNB131 Review

Viewsonic ViewBook Pro VNB131 Review

There's no mistaking Viewsonic's design inspiration. From the Apple-style packaging to the brushed-metal finish of the VNB131 itself, this is most definitely a MacBook wannabe. Still, if you're going to base your product on a rival, you could do far worse than choose Cupertino's finest, so the question has to be whether the Viewsonic VNB131 lives up to the standard. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Toshiba Mini NB305 Netbook Review

Toshiba Mini NB305 Netbook Review

Intel's Atom N270 processor - and the surrounding limitations on specifications - had a lot to answer for: over a year of cookie-cutter netbooks. With the advent of Pine Trail, Intel look to be loosening their grip on the segment a little, at least, but does the Atom N450 offer a genuine improvement over its well-worn predecessor? Toshiba sent over their latest netbook, the Mini NB305; check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e Review

Lenovo ThinkPad X100e Review

Lenovo's ThinkPad range has a new baby brother, and while the company is now several generations through its IdeaPad netbooks, the ThinkPad X100e is the first CULV-style machine intended for mobile pros. It's an ambitious undertaking, certainly: can the company deliver the traditional build-quality, reliability and performance expected from a ThinkPad, along with the low price expected for an 11.6-inch ultraportable?
