Review ASUS Transformer Book T100TA-C1-GR

By Admin | At 12:00 AM | Label : , , | 0 Comments
This particular series of Asus is a relatively low-cost ten inch windows 8 tablet that functions as laptop as well as tablet due to its features of keyboard segment. It is not the only first affordable hybrid of windows 8 that this manufacturer has made, there’s also VivoTab Smart ME400 from the same manufacturer, but, this one is regarded by many as more superior due to its overall good performance and the laptop style hinge which is practical in its design.


It features these following specifications: Intel Atom Z3740 CPU as processors, awesome two gigabyte RAM, storage of 64 gigabyte, 10.1-inch 1,366 x 768 pixel screen resolution and Windows 8.1 as the operating system. The design is very unique and appealing, it has hinge similar to the one we can find in laptop. This laptop is not designed of metal primarily, but some aspects are used to the inner workings of the hinge to ensure its strength and durability, but the overall material is largely plastic. Impressive array of finishing is also one of the juicy aspects from the design, the back part of the tablet is glossy gleamed, and the keyboard is made from brushed metal, while the bottom of its bit is created from a matt plastic.

In terms of practicality, the laptop’s design is totally suitable for a relatively cheap laptop-tablet hybrid. The weight of each of the tablet-part and the module of the keyboard are around 550 grams and the thickness is about 11-12 mm. If their parts are separated, none of them is remarkable as they are very thin and light, but when they team up, they made great, excellent team. But that’s quite enough about the design; let’s move on to the performance features. So this series uses a much faster 1.3 Gigahertz CPU in comparison than the clover trail ones. It is equally capable when being competed with the last generation processors of Intel Core i3. When seen in the laptop aspect, the level of power is okay, but in terms of tablet, it is really quite a powerful feat.


In more practical aspects, though, this hybrid is perfect for everyday usage, since it doesn’t get affected or suffer from the slowness of other kinds of tablet and can multitask just fine. However, this is not specifically designed for a performance machine because even though the RAM is quite awesome, it only has two gigabyte space, which is insufficient for a lot of serious multitasking processes. By default, T100 comes with Microsoft Office edition for Home and Student uses installed in the first place, which is usually not included in other tablet. Moving on the battery department, the T100’s keyboard doesn’t have the battery of its own to support the tablet’s stamina, unlike any other Transformer book series. So the charging process is done on the tablet’s micro USB port, which means you don’t have to worry about confusing or losing specific cable charge.

The manufacturer says that the battery is capable of lasting for eleven hours, but in actuality, it surpasses beyond expectation as it can actually run for twelve hours full. This kind of stamina is excellent and still second to none to any tablet, particularly more impressive since it is powered by Windows. Also the reason why it is considered superior than any other laptop manufactured by Windows, is because in aspects of battery endurance and swiftness processing, it is just truly outstanding and reasonably impressive.

All in all, the cons regarding this particular series is minimal to none at times and the pros are ranged a lot from design, features, performance, and other additions. Its excellent value, flexible design and long lasting battery life is more than any laptop-tablet hybrid could ask for. It is very powerful and excellent and with only little flaws every now and then, which won’t affect much of the satisfaction you will get from using this hybrid. It is totally recommended for those who are looking for a powerful, impressive hybrid with slightly more affordable price. It is truly worth your bucks for.

Review Acer C720 Chromebook Portable Gadget

By Admin | At 12:00 AM | Label : , | 0 Comments
Acer C720 is a 11,6 inch Chromebook which basically some sort of ‘hybrid sandwich’ in between its predecessor Acer C720P and the Acer C7. Acer C720 is a very affordable portable notebook which is mostly recommended for students. Putting limitations, aside, it is overall a better alternative to cheap tablet and overall very good on the go. The next section will elaborate the pros and cons and everything you need to know about its performance.


The connections and ports are all discreetly hidden around the edges of the notebook’s body. Over the left side, you will have the proprietary power port, a USB 3.0 port, a headphone jack, and a full-sized HDMI port, meanwhile on the right side you will find USB 2,0 port, SD card slot, and the Kensington Security slot. Above the screen you can find a VGA camera which allows you to have video chat in Google Hangouts, which when you take a step back and consider the price, is quite of an impressive feat.

Too bad is not so impressive in the screen and pixels department, while the 1,366 x 768 resolution of TFT LCD display may allow some vibrant and bright display when viewing angles are okay and for basic web browsing usage, it doesn’t take a genius to notice that there’s still something off in the display capability, something missing; sharpness. It is also kind of a setback in the icons department still it is kind of obscure and fuzzy on the sides and in my opinion is not appealing enough for the eyes, as it can make the impression that the screen is some sort being washed out. The lack of color and brilliance is also one factor that may turn out to be a huge turn-off for movie lover. Because when you watch a movie in this notebook, no matter how HD your video, it will always end up lacking some sort of punch and perks. But still, on the plus side, the HDMI support on board allows you to connect to a TV or the display to projector.


The sound department is not that impressive either, you will need to grab a pair of headphone or speaker to get the best of its quality. And as for performance, I’d say it’s pretty much good. Like any other Chromebook, Google’s web based operating system Chrome is the core of the heart of C720, so basically everything you do on the web will be tied to a Google account, well, it is good and all since it’s very simple and won’t cost you anything. But then everything will be centered and based inside the Google chrome and without the internet, this notebook will be just like any other Chromebook; pretty much useless. Also, as an operating system, Chrome still needs a lot of developing and improvement to do, especially in the app aspects.

There are still some big apps like Sky Go and even Skype that is still missing in the web store, and even though it keeps on improving, but it is still lacking a lot when compared to Mac App store or Google Play. But the good news is, the Haswell-based 1,4Ghz Intel Celeron 2955U CPU with RAM of 2GB allows you to have smooth experiences in using the notebook and keep the things processed and run swiftly. The overall performance is very zippy that it is capable of handling multiple tabs and multiple processes at the same time with ease. Also, the memory department is quite a feat that you don’t have to worry about getting external memory too soon to store your stuff. The battery life endurance is pretty awesome since it can last long for about 6-7 hours (even it into 8 hours if you don’t use a lot of physical memory) and if you use it sporadically for only a couple times per day, it can last long without having to be charged for about 1 week, cool huh?

Anyway, the pros of the laptop can be best summarized into: Having good quality for relatively more affordable price, smooth performance, and good battery life. Meanwhile the cons are including; so-so screen quality, lack of USB charging, average sound quality, having an often unresponsive touchpad, the still needs to be developed chrome web store and a little bit too cramped keyboard. But all in all, it still a great valuable choice if you happen to have a limited budget and still want to get a decent notebook with overall good performance, then this Acer C720 Chromebook is for you. Especially recommended for students!

Review Asus ROG G750JM-DS71 Mid Range Gaming Machine

By Admin | At 11:59 AM | Label : , | 0 Comments
Out of all the ROG series from Asus, ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71 is the least powerful of all to hit the market. The reason for this is because it does not feature the most high end hardware configuration, making it the cheapest out of the three as well. However, just because it is slightly less expensive in comparison to the other series and its shortfall of hardware, don’t underestimate its ability of being a highly capable gaming laptop. Since it is technically still a gaming grade laptop and all, its capability is still superior when compared to the any average multimedia laptop. This particular ASUS series builds upon its predecessor by including the latest series of hardware and also much more optimized and needless to say, faster components. The specifications are all the following; Intel Core with four until three Gigahertz as the processor’s basis, 12 gigabyte of DDR3, then 1 terabyte of HDD 5400, NVIDIA Ge force GTX 860M 2GB GDDR5, Windows 8.1 as the operating system, 17.3 inch FHD, and the duration of 3.5 Hours battery Life.


In terms of hardware configuration and performance of the processors, this laptop is not different from other latest series such as you can make a consideration with their rival MSI GT70 0ND-444US laptop, with its power being supported by the power of Intel quad core of 2.4 Gigahertz-3.4 Gigahertz the fourth generation Intel processors and all; it has one of the best processors you can obtain from mobile system. The adequate RAM also allows this laptop to offer swiftly smooth performance during rendering graphics or videos, and of course, multitasking processes. Twelve gigabyte of DDR3 is still more than the standard eight gigabyte that you may get in any average multimedia laptop. It is beyond the necessary requirement to keep you entertained and immersed in a smooth experience for a long duration of time. The graphical aspects are a little weaker though, since it features the NVIDIA GTX 860M graphic card, which is the weakest amongst the other graphic cards in comparison to the ones featured in the other two superior models of this series of ROG. However, that does not necessarily mean that this laptop cannot perform an excellent performance. In fact, it can still process many high-end graphic games smoothly while maintaining a decent level of FPS in range of 50-60. This graphic card may suffer a little in terms of FPS at ultra settings, but it should be enough and sufficient to take care of that kind of setting and some latest games.


The features of this particular ROG supports a 4K2K HDMI output, which means if you have a screen that capable of supporting 4K resolution, then you can be among the first to experience gaming at 4K resolution. The higher the resolution is, there are more crisp and punch we get from the game both visual and in overall experience of gaming. So it’s really a cool laptop for gamers in general. Moreover, ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71 also features an excellent cooling system that exhausts the hot air out of the back of the laptop. Well, it’s great to handle the machine from over heating and all, but still, it also comes with equal drawbacks especially in the profile of the laptop. It makes it thicker in build and therefore, definitely not the most portable gadgets out there in the world. Furthermore, the excessive hardware installation also make this laptop suffers from a healthy or decent battery life and as a consequent result, you will have to have lady luck besides you to get lucky for having at least 3,5 hours of juice from the battery.

The thing that also sets this laptop apart from its predecessor is the fast enough 5400 RPM 1 TB hard disk with SATA-300 interface. It's just slightly different speed with 7200 RPM but you can add on 2nd Drive on the other slot, this option is so much better in factors of zippy performance in general. This laptop promises a much faster response time. Just as everything benefits from a faster processor in a system, faster HDD also benefits basically many aspects that make a laptop a good laptop. So, in conclusion, this laptop is pretty much awesome not just in the price department but also in many aspects and overall performance. Perfect for any gamer, hardcore or novice who are looking for affordable grade gaming or workstation laptop that works perfectly, this laptop is by far the best laptop to go for that kind of criteria.
