Review Schenker XMG P500 PRO Gaming Notebook


Extreme Gaming? The XMG P500 Pro from Schenker wants to impress w

Excellent application and gaming performance; Stable and plain case with matt surfaces; Very good display quality; Good input devices; Many interface options

Can get loud and warm; Short battery life

Gaming notebooks with a matt display are still rare. Notebooks with the same graphics card can be found in Asus G73JW (17 inch) or Toshiba's Qosmio X500 notebook. Comparable graphics performance are provided in notebooks with ATI's HD 5850 graphics...

Samsung P500 review


A practical but understated machine that failed to shine in this group test

Decent build quality ; Good screen ; Competitive price

Lacklustre performance ; Low on features

An unremarkable laptop, but its cheap and will do well on the commute

Samsung is aggressively attacking all sectors of the notebook market at present but none quite as aggressively as the entry-level end of the market. The Samsung P500 is a well-built machine that offers decent if not outstanding value for money. The...

Great price, decent battery life

Works Great!


My coworker has the older version and because it worked so well for her, I decided to get one too. They didn't make the model she had, so I got the new version. No complaints, working well!

Skips numbers


We had three of these calculators in our accounting office and all of them had the same problem. You have to press the keys very hard and precisely in order for the numbers to register. This means that if you are entering numbers quickly it is very...

I like this little calculator--actually more than I thought I would. As an accountant, I use a calculator constantly. What I like about it is its small size. It takes up very little desk space, the tape printout is crystal clear, the print cartridge is...
