REVIEW

HP Omen 15-5010nr

HP shakes up the world of gaming laptops with unique-looking and highly portable Omen. It offers very capable performance in PC games, despite being stuck with a last-gen graphics card.

REVIEW

Apple MacBook Air ( 13-inch, 128GB)

If you own a MacBook Air from the past couple of years there's really no need to upgrade, but a small spec bump and minor price cut make the most-current Air even more attractive.

Asus Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T
REVIEW

Asus Zenbook UX301LA-DH71T

Asus was one of the first PC makers to go ultra-thin with its Zenbook line. That latest UX301 version packs in nearly every high-end spec you'd want, but it's priced out of reach for most, and lacks an all-day battery.

Kirabook 13-i7s-touch Ultrabook
REVIEW

Kirabook 13-i7s-touch Ultrabook

The design of Toshiba's high-end Kirabook hasn't changed since last year, but it has aged gracefully. The components get an update and the battery life gets a big boost, making this an all-around excellent, but expensive, ultrabook.

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus
REVIEW

Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus

If you’re just looking for an all-around excellently made Windows touch ultrabook and don’t mind that it's on the expensive side (and doesn’t convert to a tablet), the improved Samsung Ativ Book 9 Plus is worth the investment.

Razer Blade (14-inch, 2013)
REVIEW

Razer Blade ( 14-inch, 2013)

Ditching gimmicks and delivering on function, Razer's slim 14-inch gaming laptop marries true power and good battery life in an excellent PC. All it lacks a stellar display.

REVIEW

Toshiba Qosmio X875

We have yet to see a truly great gaming laptop built from the ground up with Windows 8 in mind, but the 17-inch Toshiba Qosmio X875 can be configured into a powerful, reasonably priced mainstream gaming machine.

Asus Taichi 21-DH71
REVIEW

Asus Taichi 21-DH71

More of a clever proof-of-concept than a practical product, the Asus Taichi still delivers on its basic promise, combining two displays for a unique take on the laptop/tablet/hybrid genre.

Asus G75VW-DS71
REVIEW

Asus G75VW-DS71

If you want to buy a "budget" gaming laptop, the Asus G75VW-AS71 offers plenty of horsepower and features in its heavy 17-inch body. Just don't expect anything svelte -- or good battery life.

Dell Vostro V131
REVIEW

Dell Vostro V131

The 2011 Dell Vostro V131 succeeds at being an affordable and powerful update to the 13-inch small-business laptop, adding much-needed battery life and processing boosts. At its lower-priced configurations, it's worth a look for budget shoppers.
