Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Dell XPS 15 After 2 Weeks

Originally posted 2018-05-16 18:48:13.

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the latest Dell XPS 15 2 in 1 laptop/tablet/convertible device.

It comes packed with a lot of features like the Intel Core i7-8705G processor and 16 gb ram, along with 256 GB of SSD storage.

It is fast, looks great, has a fantastic display and does most everything well. However it has a few downsides such as battery life and the web cam placement, watch the video to learn the details on those.

It will do a very respectable job of playing games and can obviously do well at any business application you throw at it.

So let us get right to that video!

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Microsoft Surface Laptop (Review)

Microsoft Surface Laptop

The Microsoft Surface Laptop is a premium 13.5 inch laptop which is expensive, but offers a few nice features. Before we get into the details I did post up a few days back about just how unrepairable which also means non-upgradeable these laptops are. That is simply something to keep in mind before purchasing one of these.

Primarily if you purchase the lower end version, you are almost totally screwed as far as upgrading the SSD/RAM yourself. Simply put you won’t have a very pretty laptop after cutting the fabric open to get to the internals.

So below you will find the video from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews and as usual it is great.

That is going to be all for this evening,

Tim

Time Once Again For a Video Worth Sharing: Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, 15.6 Inch Notebook

Originally posted 2017-11-18 22:52:47.

We now have another review of the Mi Notebook Pro 15.6 inch notebook (okay you purists, laptop) This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews and as usual I highly recommend subscribing to his YouTube channel!

Sure we have had quite a few reviews on this one, but what the hell, one more full review is better than one too few.

This is a premium notebook with high end specs and considering the price, is a much better deal than many other high end  notebooks.

So all that being said, I will mention that you can find the other reviews I have posted by using the search function here or simply by selecting the category of videos on the left side of the screen if you are on a PC, so now let us get to the video…

 

You can find this product at this link.

That is all for now,

Tim

I Simply Must Test This Mini Laptop PC! GPD Win Pocket….a Good Server? Maybe….But We Need To Get Our Hands on One!

GPD Pocket

Occasionally I go back a and review posts and I don’t know why I never thought of this device as a potential test server!

Yeah we are are talking about the GPD Pocket Win 10 PC! The most likely reason is that it is far over-priced for what I will be using it for. But still, this device intrigues me!

Since the tiny notebook has 8 GB ram , 128 GB of on-board storage and a decent processor, ( the Z8750 Cherry Trail), it will easily run the tabletserver.com website once we get back on cable here.

Sure it is a bit out of date, but hell, it looks like it would easily do 8-10 hrs per day as a server of a WordPress site! In testing it gets roughly 7 hrs of use but as a web server we are not using up battery because the screen is on, so I am guessing at least 10 hrs minimum, perhaps more!

So if anyone wants to help out with the donations so we can test the crap out of this poor little tiny notebook, kick in some bucks, or if you have one send it on over for testing. I promise we won’t break it. In fact I am betting it might beat out the HiBook as a tiny server!

Here is a repeat of the full review on this mini notebook/laptop….

Oh wait, now I remember why I didn’t put this on my list to test, it is currently on sale at Gearbest for $509! But you could still send me one…

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Just Taking a Peek at Some Newer Notebooks/Laptops, HP Spectre X360 With the Kaby Lake CPU

Originally posted 2017-02-01 00:11:06.

I prefer all my devices have mobility, even including my Zotac PC, which because of its built in wireless, can literally be plugged in anywhere in the house and still act as a web server.

So today I was pondering, perhaps a new notebook? Nothing wrong with the Asus X553SA, but logic says, sell it and replace it while it is still relevant.  So below is a review I found on the Inter-web, via YouTube and it is quite positive.

Feedback would be appreciated as usual, although I am betting that none of the 8 new users on the site will do a thing but continue their feeble attempts to hack the site….

I found the video below on YouTube and if you are into tablets and laptops, you really should subscribe to this channel. The reviews are honest, although sometimes nit-picky, but most importantly they are accurate.

That is all for this evening,

Tim
