GRID 2 Benchmarked


Brilliant speeder. Apart from DiRT and F1, GRID is one of the most important franchises from Codemasters. The second release not only promises more racing action, but also a better look. We squeezed ourselves into the luxury cars and determined the...

Apparently, the integrated benchmark cannot measure frame rates below 12.5 fps

Dell Inspiron 15 7000 review


A beautifully designed laptop with a great battery life, but it's not as powerful as other similarly priced desktop replacements

The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 is a superb desktop replacement, and its premium design looks smart and highly desirable. Our main concern, though, is the price. At £800, it’s a fraction more expensive than the more powerful and award-winning Acer Aspire...

Windows 8 Just Sucks


I still hate Windows 8.1

None that I can think of

I swear to all high - how can Microsoft screw up an OS so bad? Time for a Mac

Good Office Computer, Not Much Else...


I'm not sure if this is a shipping problem, but when I bought this computer from QVC, I went on Dell to check its specs, and it said my product was touchscreen compatible, so I have that version, but the touchscreen doesn't seem to work.

1. Very Affordable ; 2. Worth the price ; 3. Has never overheated on me yet

1. Material used for case is weak ; 2. Short battery life ; 3. Unwanted spot for flash memory port ; 4. Screen is weak ; 5. Top portion of the computer is weak

DELL i15RV-4290BLK


I wasn't sure what new Egg would do, but was surprised that they sent me directly to Dell. I was surprised that Dell didn't just send me another computer once they received mine and found that there was a hardware problem.

The one day with 2 hrs use that I had, the computer was great. After that I had 2 - 3 service calls to Dell. I had great service contact with Dell Rep for info and status

I first called New Egg, but was told to call Dell. I had to talk to Dell 2 - 3 times for 2 days and then they told me to send it back to Dell Repair Depot. It has been 2 weeks with multiple status calls and today, the computer was received

Great laptop for taking on the road or the library


Wanted a laptop with a required Intel Core I5 or I7 processor, at least 8 GB of memory, and at least 1 TB hard drive. DId NOT want a touch screen. This product fit my requirements perfectly. Might have preferred W7 over W8, but it only took me a few...

Wasn't a fan of Win 8, but have it configured to look like W7 now
