Convertible Windows 8-based laptops that can also be used as tablets don’t come in one standard form factor. That is, perhaps, what makes this market segment such an interesting one to watch, with the products available ranging from interesting to wh...
As far as confusing products go, the ASUS Transformer Book Trio gets high marks. It's an 11.6in device with multiple identities that tries to cover off tablet, notebook, and even desktop PC or media centre needs. We know that ASUS loves to innovate, ...
Mobile printing has never been easier. For a busy office, reliable and easy-to-use tools are essential. Samsung's latest smart printers are equipped for wireless printing from mobile devices. Find out more about what is all about.
There was lots of excitement in the office when we finally got our hands on the Lenovo ThinkPad T440s, mainly because of the ground-up redesign that Lenovo performed on this 14in business laptop. Does the new design make the ThinkPad T440s a killer U...
Hold onto your hats, folks, because from this Saturday 16 November you will be able to purchase a touchscreen notebook from Aldi for $688. It’s the Medion Akoya S6212T (or the MD 99270, as it’s known in brackets), and it’s the first touchscreen compu...
The Split 13 x2 combines a fairly lightweight 13-inch tablet with a keyboard, battery and storage dock. It’s a strong concept, though aspects of HP’s execution aren’t as solid as they could be.
If you visit your local appliance retailer, whether it’s JB Hi-Fi or The Good Guys, you might come across this ASUS VivoBook S551L notebook. It costs about $1400 and it's a big unit of 15.6in that's designed to be somewhat of an all-rounder when it c...
It must be said that the more we used Acer’s C720 Chromebook, the more we enjoyed it. We didn’t get too hung up on the fact that it isn’t a ‘regular’ computer, and we can see the value in it if you’re after a laptop that will be used purely for Web b...
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.

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.
