Lenovo ThinkPad T480s Review & Rating

If your boss or office manager shoots down your request for a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon, here’s a boomerang solution: Make an immediate case for the powerful, rugged, and still thin-and-light ThinkPad T480s. This more affordable ThinkPad (starts at $1,007; $1,659 as tested) is about a half-pound heavier than the Editors‘ Choice-winning X1 Carbon, the slimmest and sleekest ThinkPad in Lenovo‘s stable. The chassis is the same durable carbon fiber, albeit a bit bulkier, but as a reward for the…

Alienware 17 R5 Review & Rating

The brand practically a synonym for “gaming PC,” Alienware puts out some of the most powerful—and most expensive—laptops you can buy. This year’s refresh of its 17-inch flagship, the Alienware 17 R5 (starts at $1,559.99; $3,974.99 as tested) fits that profile on both fronts, especially the souped-up configuration we tested. Our unit includes an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics chip and a Core i9 processor, top-grade components with dollar signs to match. This machine’s configuration options scale down well, though,…

Intel Kaby Lake G Core i7-8705G Review: Why Nvidia should be scared

Kaby Lake G’s marriage of Intel CPU and AMD GPU is an unusual partnership in the spirit of peanut butter and chocolate, R2-D2 and C-3PO in Star Wars, and yes, even Tom Hanks and the dog in Turner and Hooch. People love the unexpected. Built out of an Intel 8th-generation quad-core CPU and an AMD custom Radeon RX Vega M graphics chips, Kaby Lake G shook the PC industry when Intel announced the chip at CES. After putting Kaby Lake G through the…

Lenovo ThinkPad X280 Review & Rating

What’s this? Rounded corners on a ThinkPad X200 series laptop? Yes, indeed. While last year’s ThinkPad X270 was chunky for an ultraportable, Lenovo’s new ThinkPad X280 (starts at $1,179; $1,565 as tested) is a thinner, sleeker variation on this classic 12.5-inch business box. It combines ThinkPads’ exemplary build quality and one of Lenovo’s signature keyboards with a handsome 1080p touch screen and ample ports, including Thunderbolt 3. The trimmer Dell XPS 13 (9370), packing an easier-on-the-eyes 13.3-inch panel, remains our…

Lenovo Legion Y730 Preview | PCMag.com

The last time Lenovo did a full refresh of its gaming laptop line, it rechristened the models “Legion.” Now, Legion models are, well, legion, and the line is getting its 2018 round of updates, with several fresh laptops and desktops announced at E3 2018. The most interesting of the lot is the Legion Y730 (starts at $1,179.99), Lenovo’s new midrange gaming laptop. It has been given a completely new chassis design and comes in versions with 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch display…

Intel explains how 1-watt panels will add hours to your laptop’s battery life

Nearly lost in the flood of Intel announcements at Computex—Intel’s 28-core chip, the 8086K Anniversary Edition, and more—was something a bit more fundamental: the development of 1-watt display panels, which will have a profound impact on battery life. Intel said it is working with Innolux and Sharp to develop what it calls its Low Power Display Technology, which optimizes the display technology, including the backlight and panel circuitry, to halve power from a typical power consumption of about two watts…
