Ultrabook Review: How is it for Gaming?

Ultrabook set themselves apart from traditional laptops due to their dimensions. These devices are much lighter and thinner than their counterparts. Given this distinction it is easy to see the implications it could have for those who game. The beauty of online gaming is that it literally be done anywhere there is an internet connection. Therefore, online casino gamers need devices that are easy to carry around permitting them to play when on the go. Ultrabooks fit this bill in regard to their size.

Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258 – Solid Performer behind Cheap Looks

Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258 – Solid Performer behind Cheap Looks
The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258 might have the looks of an economy laptop, but it surely has some power under its hood. Unfortunately, the cheap construction and cheap exteriors of the Satellite L755-S5258 aren’t sufficient to make up for the incredible performance of the system.

Our $690 review unit of the Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258 came with a 4GB of RAM, a second-generation Intel Core i5-2410M processor and a 640GB hard disk drive rated at 5400 rpm. The Satellite L755-S5258 also has an in-built 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, microphone and a built-in webcam, and also an HDMI port. The Satellite L755-S5258 comes fitted with 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium OS pre-installed. In our performance test the Satellite L755-S5258 performed decently, but still the performance wasn’t equivalent to the top performers. But considering the price of the system we would say that the system performed extremely well.

Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEJ15FG) – Decent Performance, Sturdy Build Quality

Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEJ15FG) – Decent Performance, Sturdy Build Quality
The Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEJ15FG) is a rather basic system if you look at it from its 3D gaming capabilities point or view, but as far as the normal working is concerned we would say that it’s a more than powerful system. The graphics in here are taken care by the Geforce 410M, and hence although the system doesn’t have all that power for the 3D applications or games, but as far as everyday computing is concerned, we think that its more than capable.

The Sony VAIO E Series (VPCEJ15FG) also isn’t one of the finest performer that ever entered our laboratory and we found the system struggling during our multitasking testing, we did find  ourselves a tad sluggish on a small number of instances. This is why we think that a slightly more powerful laptop having a quad-core processor, a fast hard drive and a tad more RAM definitely would have taken care of the sluggishness of the system. But considering the fast recovery of Sony VAIO  [...]

This will be the first time we will be seeing Ultrabook and Lenovo together, but mind it, its not any ordinary device. The all new Lenovo IdeaPad U300S is incredibly slim at 15 mm from edge to edge.

Gateway ID47HO2 – Nice Looking Laptop Having Mysterious Name
A sleek, respectably performing and nice looking laptop that has a mysterious name like ID47HO2, is something that we don’t understand. But we think Gateway does, and that’s the reason why they have given the name to their nice-looking, sleek and decent performing laptop the Gateway ID47HO2. The system has everything that a system needs to have to be a hit in the market and in its sleek body, the system squeezes around seven hours of battery life. If you are looking for a reason to but this Gateway ID47HO2, we would say that ergonomics and aesthetics are the genuine reasons you should think buying this system. The Gateway ID47HO2 gets some of its visual appeal from its low profile. The system is only 1.13 in thick, which we would say that is not at all bad for a 14 in budget laptop. As of 9/1/2011 the ID47HO2 was priced $700. Though, the modest design value-system scores  [...]
