  • Lenovo are NOT getting out of the small Windows tablet market. New devices coming.

    19 July 2014, 4:15 pm by: Chippy

    I was very sad to read news on Friday that Lenovo was getting out of the small screen tablet market. It turns out, however, that it’s not true. Lenovo issued a press release yesterday stating that they  “are not getting out of the small-screen Windows…
  • High-end 8-inch Windows tablets – Where do we go from here?

    18 July 2014, 8:39 am by: Chippy

    I recently wrote about what a late-2014 high-end 8-inch Windows tablet could offer. I talked about Intel’s Realsense camera technology, 3G, USB3.1, 1080p screens and AC WiFi. A digitizer and additional access security could be interesting too but is there a…
  • Acer Aspire Switch 10 Review – Video Overview

    14 July 2014, 5:48 pm by: Chippy

    What a pleasure it was to test and review the Acer Aspire Switch 10 for Notebookcheck.net over the last three weeks.  The Acer Aspire Switch 10 is a low-cost 2-in-1 that’s up against a product that has been selling like hot-cakes and yet it pulls through.…
  • Movie Edit Touch 2 on Windows 8 Tablet – Report and Demo

    2 July 2014, 11:13 am by: Chippy

    I have a history of testing simple, fast and efficient video editing software and two years ago I settled on an Intel platform with Quick Sync hardware. Quick Sync is simply a hardware acceleration layer for video encoding and processing and it works extremely…
  • Acer Aspire Switch 10 Keyboard Battery Coming?

    2 July 2014, 8:20 am by: Chippy

    I’m testing the Acer Aspire Switch 10 for Notebookcheck.net right now and it’s going well. I prefer it to the ASUS Transformer Book T100 because of the better keyboard, mouse and screen but there’s one little issue – battery life. The Switch 10 has a…
  • Chromebooks, ART and Android L is a model worth getting excited about.

    26 June 2014, 6:52 am by: Chippy

    Android L, ART and Chromebooks. If you use Windows products, these Google products might make you sit up and take notice soon because Google have just announced important enhancements that connect the Chromebook and Android world. There was plenty of news from…
  • MMV launches Console OS, a Dual OS Android project for your Windows PC

    16 June 2014, 11:21 am by: Chippy

    Back at MWC we spoke to MMV CEO Christopher Price about dual-OS tablets, Ultrabooks and desktops. At that time they were public about iConsole.TV - an Android build designed to run games on high-power PC platforms. The idea of high-end gaming power is…
  • Intel’s Mobility Event at Computex was packed with info and goodies.

    10 June 2014, 7:44 am by: Chippy

    Although I wasn’t at Computex last week I covered it like a hawk both here and at Ultrabooknews. Yesterday I went through the complete video recording of the Intel mobility keynote and it was well worth it.  If you have any interest in mobile computing at…
  • Lenovo Flex 10 SSD upgrade has great results. Recommended hack!

    6 June 2014, 7:37 am by: Chippy

    When I reviewed the 270-euro Lenovo Ideapad Flex 10 recently I knew it would be a great candidate for an SSD upgrade. This fanless, touchscreen hybrid is the very model of a modern casual portable laptop but it was fitted with a really poor quality hard drive…
  • Toshiba Encore 7 Windows Tablet is good and bad at the same time.

    4 June 2014, 9:20 am by: Chippy

      My predictions about the 7-inch Windows tablet space are coming true. The smaller Baytrail-T (refresh) platform simply allows a smaller motherboard which means a smaller screen which means lower backlight power/cost and finally a smaller battery. The…
  • Llama Mountain tablet uses Core-M to provide 10-inches at 550 grams, 6.8mm

    4 June 2014, 1:27 am by: Chippy

    We saw the Llama mountain 12.5-inch concept announced at Computex yesterday. Its 7.2mm fanless design is enabled by the new 14nm Broadwell-Y based Core M branded CPUs. Today at Computex Intel demonstrated a 10-inch version of that dockable tablet that weighs…
  • ASUS Transformer Book T200TA Shows at Computex–Video

    3 June 2014, 5:46 am by: Chippy

    I was a little surprised that ASUS didn’t mention the Transformer Book T200TA in the press event at Computex yesterday but at least it showed-up on the Asus booth today. This 399 Euro 2-in-1 should raise some eyebrows. Mobilegeeks got hands-on and here’s a…
