Choosing a laptop for its gaming performance might be a difficult task for people. So to see that Lenovo has its slate of laptops available that can satisfy the gamer in you is pleasing. The problem is, how do you choose between them?  We take a look at the differences between Lenovo’s four gaming-centric laptops; the Legion Y740, Legion Y7000 SE, Legion Y540 and the IdeaPad L340 Gaming, and see which device is a better fit for you.

MSI Prestige 15 Review: MSI’s content creator laptop just comes short of prestige

The MSI brand has been synonymous with gaming in the computer market for the better part of the decade, so it is interesting to see them target a slightly different type of consumer with their newest laptop, the MSI Prestige 15. Specifically, the MSI Prestige 15 is part of the Prestige line from MSI – one that is geared towards content creators. The computer giant is touting the Prestige series as being able to handle heavy-duty content work while remaining lightweight and portable; a 14-inch version is also available.  Design The design of the laptop mirrors the change in demographics.…

Parallels Desktop 15 for Mac: Be more productive with your MacBook, by bringing back Windows

So you just bought a MacBook? That’s nothing new if you’ve been in the Apple family for a while now. But if you’re a Windows-convert, you’re probably missing all the bells and whistles that you’ve grown used to in the Microsoft camp. Now, what if I told you that you could have the best of both worlds? Or if you’re from the opposing turf, why should you even consider bringing Windows in? Virtualising Windows on a Mac is nothing new. For newbies, this means running Windows and its applications on your Mac without having to reboot it. Primarily, this allows…

Lenovo Yoga S730 Review: Thin in hand, thin in features

Lenovo Yoga S730 Review: Thin in hand, thin in features

The flexibility of Lenovo’s Yoga series has been a stand-out feature ever since its inception back in 2012. Since then, it has spawned different series under the same name, including the Yoga S series, which is their Ultrabook variant of the line-up. Their newest release is the Lenovo Yoga S730, possibly one of the thinnest laptops on the market right now. Measuring at a thickness of just 11.9mm and weight of 1.2kg, it is easy to mistake it as one of your magazines if you have both in your bag. The chassis of the laptop is made out of aluminium,…

New 9th Gen Intel CPU signals start of new laptop series

The new 9th Gen Intel® Core™ mobile H-series processors, successors to the 8th Gen Intel Core which was released last year, were recently announced for laptops. Dubbed “the most powerful generation of Intel® Core™ mobile processors ever”, Intel® is aiming to push gaming experiences on laptops to the next level.

Microsoft Surface Review: Sleek In Aesthetics, Yet Versatile In Functionality

Microsoft Surface Review: Sleek In Aesthetics, Yet Versatile In Functionality

Personally, I prefer gaming-grade rigs, such as Dell’s Alienware or Asus ROG line of gaming-oriented laptops. In comparison, the Microsoft Surface laptop seems almost modest — with its light frame and corporate, not-built-for-heavy-use look. But don’t let that fool you from its workhorse capabilities; it may not run Triple A games as well as a Razer Blade, but it will certainly be more than enough for anybody that doesn’t play first-person-shooters for a full-time living. First Impressions When it comes to looks, the Microsoft Surface Pro is neatly and elegantly presented. It looks sleek, simplistic and professional; essentially what a…

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme: An Extreme-ly Good Portable Laptop for the Modern Worker

The Lenovo Thinkpad’s X1 series has been famed for providing laptops adept at providing high-powered performance, all while being housed in such a thin and portable system for the modern businessman. Now, Lenovo has added to this to the line-up with the X1 Extreme, equipped with a 15.6-inch display (as compared to the 14-inch display of its predecessor, the X1 Carbon), as well as additional upgrades to the processors and GPU. The laptop dons the classic laptop design from years past, and you won’t find any of the futuristic designs that one would otherwise see on something like a gaming…

Aftershock APEX-15 Review: A Beast in Performance for Creatives & Gamers

As a creative and a professional video editor, the search for the best machine to complement my field of work has always been a dilemma: with a large variety of electronic products offered on the mass market today, how many of them can actually meet the demands of running multiple creative software simultaneously and seamlessly – all without breaking the bank? For like-minded individuals in my field of profession – or one that is similar – gaming laptops would probably not be an immediate choice. However, Aftershock’s APEX-15 notebook is one to consider when it comes to getting creative work done with…
