HP’s ENVY brand once represented the finest consumer laptops the company had to offer. It’s a pity, then, that the latest ENVY 15 left us feeling so disappointed.
In deference to its Alienware and ROG competitors, Gigabyte’s P34G gaming notebook is Ultrabook-level slim and light, with the sedate styling of a modern business machine. However, it’s not nearly as spineless as its svelteness suggests.
Whilst the ASUS Transformer line began with Android-powered convertibles, the latest Transformer Book T100 sports Microsoft’s Windows 8.1. We had a brief hands-on with the T100 at its launch event in Sydney, late October.
ASUS has come up with a hybrid Ultraportable computer that it touts as being a 3-in-1 device, rather than a standard 2-in-1. Allow us to explain what this means.
ASUS has revamped its much-admired Zenbook Ultrabook, making some physical tweaks as well as offering some more high-end specs. Gone is the all-metal finish that adorned the previous model; you'll now find Gorilla Glass 3 on the lid, which provides n...
Less than a year after the launch of its first Surface RT and Surface Pro tablets, Microsoft has launched the next iteration of its tablet family, including the Windows 8.1 RT-based Surface 2.
Dell’s Alienware 18 is a 5.5kg behemoth of a gaming ‘laptop’, with a massive price and desktop-like specs. We put it to the test, to see just what all that money, weight and bulk will get you.
The Acer Chromebook C720 appears to be an evolutionary attempt to right the wrongs of its predecessor, the Acer C710, which hit the Australian market in March.
Samsung’s ATIV Book 9 Lite is thin, lightweight and offers impressively long battery life, but proves disappointingly gutless in even the most basic tasks.
MSI's treat for gamers and high-end notebook enthusiasts is the 17.3in GT70 20D, which contains components and capabilities that can induce drooling. It's an expensive beast, but if you're serious about buying one of the fastest notebooks on the mark...
Dell has added a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU to its versatile little XPS 12 convertible Ultrabook, which gives it much improved battery life and better performance when it comes to processing 3D graphics. However, Dell hasn’t done much to cha...
HP's Pavilion 11 Touchsmart is an 11.6in notebook (some call it a 'sub-notebook') that runs an AMD A6 accelerated processing unit (APU), 4GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. It's a small and highly portable laptop of 1.5kg, and it’s also cheap. We thi...
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been around for a while, but this is the first chance we’ve had to see it with a touchscreen. It’s still as good as we remember it, and even though our review unit did the rounds extensively as a show model, it still...
It may be an entry-level model, but the Sony VAIO Fit 15E is a stylish 15.6in touchscreen notebook that looks better than most other models at the same price point. It's useful for typical office tasks, Web browsing and communications, and also for v...

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
