​Acer Predator Triton 700 Review

Posted on 07 November 2017

People who still prefer to using laptops always look for an innovative alternative. The tech experts keep an eye out for not only new gadgets, but they are quite excited for something cutting-edge and deeply innovative. Talking about innovation, who would say no to a laptop that offers quality and satisfaction at the same time? Therefore, if you are looking for a laptop that enables you to get the job done and provides you with exciting gaming experience, the Acer Predator Triton 700 is here!

The exterior of Acer Predator Triton 700 is pretty or borderline dull. Only the logo signifies that it is a powerful gaming computer. However, the interior of the laptop has stolen the show. It is extremely attractive. The very thing first you would notice is the touchpad because you would not find it – it has been designed beneath the keyboard. But it sits nicely below the screen – which is a unique idea for laptops.

Gorilla glass touchpad

The touchpad is made with gorilla glass and is placed right above the graphics card. You can clearly see the GTX1080 beneath it. The Gorilla glass enables users to see internal features. The touchpad is extremely smooth to use – designed perfectly for web surfing.

Satisfying keyboard

The keyboard is impressive. Also, it has dynamic RGB themes, bright and colorful. It is an appealing keyboard innovation. The keys are smooth to click and they border on ASMR. For gamers, playing PUBG would be a joyous experience. Plus, playing any game with a WASD control scheme on Triton 700 would be exciting.

Triton 700 touchpad

One thing is worth mentioning that its touchpad – although it is extremely attractive it gets uncomfortably hot and it happens because it is made of glass. There are chances that when you run apps with Nvidia1080 GPU, the Predator touchpad may get too hot to handle. It is suggested to use a mouse or gamepad to deal with this. However, using both might not help if you browse through several Windows menu or navigate the steam game launching application.

​Razer Blade Stealth 13.3”: Ultrabook Laptop Review

Posted on 23 October 2017

When we think about Razer laptops, there is only thing that comes to mind – an ultimate gaming experience! However, most Razer laptops aren’t designed strictly for gaming purposes – and the Razer Blade Stealth 13.3” is a pretty good example of one of them. The Blade Stealth is designed to compete with a premium built, non-gaming version of MacBook Air and Microsoft Surface.

Product Specifications

Following are the key specifications of the Razer Blade Stealth 13.3”.

  • Display Size: 13-Inch, 3200×1880 touch display
  • CPU: 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-7500U
  • RAM: 16Gb DDR3 SDRAM
  • Graphic: 128 MB Intel HD 620 Graphics
  • Storage: 512GB SSD
  • Networking: 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1
  • OS: Windows 10 Home (64-Bit)

Features

The Razer Blade Stealth 13.3” 2017 now comes in matte grey with a 13.3” screen instead of 12.5”. In order to give it battery more life, they have dropped the resolution slightly so that it is not 4k anymore. However, the output feels the same with excellent display result.

What makes Razer laptops standout is their keyboards, they have backlighting options that offer a magnitude of different colors. The Blade Stealth 13.3” however, runs short on this technology and comes with only white backlight option – which is primarily to give it a more professional look and feel.

It is a slim laptop, yet it packs almost all the needed ports, a USB-C thunderbolt 3 port, full sized two USB ports and an HDMI port. Since it has Intel HD 620 graphics, HD gaming and heavy photoshopping is not possible. But with an Intel Core i7(7th Generation) and 16GB RAM it will perform well. With an improvied, 8-hour battery life, you can use it for longer periods of time but at the expense of a 4k resolution.

Verdict

A premium built Core i7 laptop with a large screen will appeal to many people who want to stick to buying a Razer laptop for professional work and whatnot.

​Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 Review: Redefining Rugged Flexibility

Posted on 19 October 2017

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is not your average entertainment two-in-one laptop. Its keyboard can connect with nearby electronic equipment; it can survive a 4-Foot drop, sand, water, dust, extreme temperatures and altitudes. The laptop/tablet is specifically designed for professions like field work, police, government agencies or any work that can subject the PC to a harsh environment.

Product Specifications

Following are the key specifications of Panasonic Toughbook CF-33:

  • Display Size : 12-Inch, 160×1440 touch display
  • PC CPU: 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5-7300
  • PC RAM: 8Gb DDR3
  • Graphic: 128 MB dedicated Intel HD 620 Graphics
  • Storage: 256GB SSD
  • Networking: 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.1
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro (64-Bit)

Features

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 sports has a 3:2 ratio display screen mostly intended to work for legacy softwares. Being a two-in-one laptop, the screen can be converted to work like a tablet. It has a USB 3.0 port, Ethernet, Micro SD, audio and HDMI ports. It also has a port to store the stylus to use on screen once it is converted into a tablet.

It has an IR Webcam for secure logging. You can use Windows Facial recognition or TPM 2.0 security for logging in. It has an optional integrated 4G LTE mobile broadband to connect the laptop to the internet in locations where the only network available is mobile. The batteries are swappable, meaning that you can change batteries easily. Panasonic says that CF-33 has 20 hours of battery, but in our test, we found that the battery lasted for 9 hours only, but that also depends on how you are going to use it.

Performance wise, we didn’t find it to be a beast, but it can perform well in multitasking or when multiple applications are open. If you are thinking of using this for professional photo editing keep in mind that it has 128MB of dedicated Intel graphics card, which is not capable enough to do anything overly graphic-heavy.

Verdict

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is really a durable and tough laptop/tablet for people who work in extreme conditions. It is one of the most durable and versatile laptop cum tablets ever made and can survive falls – making it perfect for fieldwork and whatnot. What we don’t really like about the CF-33 is that it has limited graphics capabilities.

HP’s Omen X Laptop Coming Soon

Posted on 19 September 2017

The earlier version of HP’s Omen 17 did not exactly leave a good impression on everyone. The price was relatively lower however the performance was what earned it poor reviews on the internet. With a Geforce GTX 1070 video card, people weren’t exactly excited about the laptop when it hit the market for the first time.

It seems like HP learned its lesson because in comes HP’s Omen X laptop. It was priced at $1600 and is designed to meet any gamer’s needs. Both the design of the laptop as well as the performance are impressive and worth the price. HP moved to a metal chassis after the last mistake of a plastic one, which takes the weight up a notch, however, the durability of the powerhouse laptop increases. The laptop has a 16GB RAM and a 1TB hard disk. The laptop’s GPU ratings are 8.2 out of 10, and it has the latest Intel i-7 core with a G-sync display panel. Everything about the laptop screams a desire to want to purchase it.

Furthermore, the laptop comes with strong software that handles most of the lighting of the laptop known as Omen Command Centre. There are reportedly eight zones of lighting that the laptop has and control over them is at your disposal. You can enjoy customizing your laptop to the way you want. You can also manage the network traffic as well as override the macro controls of the laptop.

This aspect can help if the laptop ever gets stuck around a task which is highly unlikely with the current specifications we are considering. HP wanted to make sure its customers receive the best and are also giving them the option to prepare for the worst possible situation. In the end, the Omen X is one of the most powerful laptops to hit the market.
