Company of Heroes 2 Benchmarked


War is taxing. With their new title Company of Heroes, the Canadian developer Relic wants to reach the top of the real-time strategy game charts. Alongside the pure gameplay, the title's visuals are also supposed to enchant the senses. Has the...

Quiet operation; Slim and light; Attractive casing; Decent application performance; 24 month warranty

Review Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51T Ultrabook


Inexpensive touchscreen Ultrabook. Though its low budget price of

Good build quality and sleek design for the price; Large touchpad; Low idling system noise; Touchscreen functionality; User-accessible HDD, RAM, and system fan; Low starting price for a touchscreen Ultrabook

Very warm surface temperatures when idling; Maintenance panel can be difficult to remove; Average display brightness; Average battery life; Poor outdoor usability due to glossy screen; Arrow keys and numpad are slightly smaller and softer

The Asus Ultrabook offers good performance and overall aesthetics that are not commonplace in its price range. End-user upgrades can extend the lifetime of the notebook.

Metro: Last Light Benchmarked


A thrilling adventure. ?Metro: Last Light? is the next installment of the Metro franchise that follows in the footsteps of the infamous ?Metro 2033? that was well known to push modern gaming hardware to the limit. We will see if the gaming studio ?4A...

The following screenshots show the different benchmark settings used in our test runs. Since SSAA is extremely demanding (40 % lower frame rates at 1920 x 1080 pixels and maximum details), we have deactivated this anti-aliasing variant in our tests....

ASUS VivoBook S500CA DS51T


The world of 15-inch ultrabooks has always felt odd to me: Intel's dream of superthin Windows laptops carried over to a big, wide chassis never seemed right, whether it was the 15-inch Samsung Series 9 back in 2012 or this year's Asus VivoBook S500CA,...

An attractive design, solid specs, and a responsive touch screen in a sub-$700 price.

Bigger and heavier than most ultrabooks; no extra added graphics or DVD drive; screen isn’t full-HD.

The VivoBook S500CA offers a big-screened touch-screen Windows 8 laptop for a bargain price -- and without many extras.

Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t


The Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t's trim chassis, responsive touch screen, and reasonable price tag work together to create to an affordable Windows 8 experience, but its disappointing keyboard/ touchpad duo and so-so battery life hold it back.

Thin. Reasonably priced. Full-size HDMI port

Disappointing keyboard and touchpad. Keyboard isn't backlit. So-so battery life. Only one USB 3.0 port

There's a lot to like about the Asus VivoBook S500CA-DS51t ($679.99 list). This Windows 8 entry-level ultrabook sports a trim design, responsive capacitive touch display, and reasonable price tag all contribute to an affordable Windows 8 experience....

Descent Core I7 laptop for the price


Purposely waited a while to post a review to give it a fair assessment of the product. Have had the ultrabook for over 2 months with regular daily usage. Above are my rating (1-5) for each relevant componenet and thoughts. Note: 1-3 rating in Cons and...

SSD/HDD hi-brid: 4 ; Fast boot and app access although not at par with what's advertised. More like 7-10 sec boot time and about 4 from sleep. Not a complain by any means, just callng out the advertisement. Happy the way it is ; Track Pad: 4 ; Very...

HRSA Computer Service


If you're not overly concerned with the camera video quality this is an excellent laptop. Plenty of resources and very nice sound and screen quality. Would definitely recommend to future customers with a warning about the cam.

Excellent machine overall. SSd hybrid makes a big difference

Camera is only .3mp, not bad quality pics but the motion detection and speed leave a bit to be desired on the video end, hence the one egg off

Great Machine


The laptop was purchased for everyday family use, not for gaming or for intense data manipulation. This review reflects that use. I am very satisfied with the features of this machine, especially the touch screen feature...even though I have little use...
