    Toshiba Satellite T115-S1105 Laptop Review

    It’s getting to be a fairly confusing time to be in the market for an 11-inch laptop. Why do we say that? Simply put, this used to be considered a “Netbook” category, mainly populated by Intel Atom processors. With the rise of ULV (ultra low-voltage) processors, however, a number of laptops–anywhere from...

    Toshiba Satellite T135D-S1324 Laptop Review

    When Toshiba announced the Satellite T135 series, its line of thin-and-light ultraportable laptops last year, we were immediately interested for two reasons: performance and price. In a world of Netbooks toting endlessly similar Atom processors, having a higher-powered dual-core processor such as the U4100 in the T135-S1310 made a big difference in...

    HP Pavilion dv4-2145dx Laptop Review

    We tend to view 14-inch laptops as sitting in the sweet spot between portability and productivity. Whereas ultraportables are better for constant travelers and larger 15- and 16-inch laptops are better for general home use, we find that 14-inch models are a good size for your do-it-all, workhorse laptop: compact and light...

    HP Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX Laptop Review

    The Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX follows the tried-and-true budget laptop formula, supplying an Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM, integrated Intel graphics, a 250GB hard drive, and a 15.6-inch display for a bargain basement price. In fact, this $349 laptop features the same core specs as the Toshiba Satellite L455-S5975, which sold for...

    Sony VAIO EA24FM/W Laptop Review

    Back in the spring we reviewed the first of Sony’s midrange Vaio E line, and we liked its combination of Core i3 processor, solid design, and an extremely comfortable keyboard and touch pad. Sony recently updated the E series to include different screen sizes and newer features including Intel Wireless Display. The...

    Apple Magic Trackpad Review

    For those keeping score, Apple had only one computing product left in its lineup that wasn’t multitouch-oriented: its desktop Macs. Not anymore. With the introduction of the Magic Trackpad, Apple has brought its multitouch-enabled clickpad from the MacBook Pro over to the desktop world in the form of a large, square, aluminum-and-glass...

    HP Envy 14 Laptop Review

    The good: Less expensive than last year’s Envy models; highly configurable; solid design and construction. The bad: Heavy; ATI switchable graphics not as seamless as Nvidia’s; funky volume controls don’t play well with games. The bottom line: HP’s updated Envy 14 is a well-built high-end laptop with impressive components and a surprisingly...

    HP Pavilion dm4 Review

    The middle-of-the-road multimedia laptops that come out of HP have always been excellent examples of the style. They typically bring some upscale design buzz–but not too much in the way of extra features or components–while keeping prices down. Our configuration of the HP Pavilion dm4 worked out to cost $979 (that is...

    Gateway NV5933u Review

    OK, so we’re finally ready to admit that Blu-ray looks like it’s here to stay for a while. That doesn’t necessarily mean that many people are ready to make a huge investment in a laptop with a Blu-ray player. The good news is, you may not have to worry about that. Prices...

    Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 0633 Review

    Lenovo’s IdeaPad line of consumer-targeted laptops is a far cry from the traditional dry ThinkPad business systems the company is known for. We’d go so far as to call the IdeaPad brand highly underrated, as the designs are among the snappier we’ve seen from any major PC maker, even if they tend...

    Gateway NV7901u Review

    Remember the Gateway NV7915u? Back in our Spring 2010 retail roundup of laptops, the budget-priced 17-incher won our Best of Budget category, and also received an Editors’ Choice recommendation. At $599, its combination of Intel Core i3 processor, large hard-drive capacity, generous RAM, and a large screen made it a great all-around...

    Gateway EC5809u Review

    We’re going to go out on a limb here and say it: from a consumer standpoint, a large-screened “thin-and-light” laptop has little appeal over a regular mainstream system. That is to say, thin doesn’t matter all that much when a computer has a large footprint anyway. That hasn’t stopped manufacturers from releasing...
