Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 Entertainment Laptop

If you’re looking for a Lenovo laptop that has some serious computing performance capabilities, consider one from the IdeaPad Y Series.  The systems in this family of laptops are geared for serious entertainment, and are powered by top of the line Intel processors and dedicated graphic controllers.  Choose from either 14″ or 15.6″ displays: Y480 and Y580

When you’re looking at the most current lineup on Lenovo’s website, you’ll probably see a ton of models.  Lenovo has it where each model has for the most part, a set base system configuration.  Customization is available but to a limited degree, so you’ll want to pick out the model that is closest to the specifications you want.

Windows 8 on a Toshiba Satellite Laptop

Microsoft’s release of Windows 8, the next iteration of it’s Windows franchise, is just right around the corner.  Set for October 26, 2012, many laptop manufacturers have been scrambling to incorporate the operating system’s new and innovative features into their products.

As consumers, many of you may be wondering what Windows 8 will look like on a laptop.  We’ve seen how multi-touch functionality works on a tablet.  For a preview of Windows 8 and how it looks on a Toshiba Satellite notebook, check out this Cnet article by Scott Stein.

So, how does touch on a laptop work? I’m not sure on one this big. The distance from the screen to my hand often meant reaching over the keyboard and occasionally scraping the trackpad, a problem I can see many dealing with. On the other hand, this Satellite is one of the most complete and compact designs I’ve seen in a while.

Weighing in at just under 1.6 kg and with a total thickness of 22.8 mm (lighter and thinner than its 13 inch Macbook counterpart), the laptop looks and feels good, and lugging it around the whole day is anything but a chore.

PCMag Review on The VAIO SVZ13114GXX

Brian Westover at has reviewed a prebuilt Sony VAIO Z Series Laptop.  Specifically, he takes a look at model number SVZ13114GXX, which is a mid-tier 13.1″ premium ultrabook.  Brian gives the laptop a good rating and points out several good and bad points on the product.  He covers the design, features, performance and benchmark test results.  While most Sony VAIO Z Series Ultraportable Laptops are quite pricey, they are loaded on performance highlights and they feature a remarkable thin and light design.

The Sony VAIO Z13 (SVZ13114GXX) sets out to dominate the pricier end of the ultraportable category, and in some respects it does, with unbeaten processing power, featherweight carbon fiber construction, and great multimedia performance, along with the software tools to take advantage of it. If you want the best ultraportable available, this may well be it

The big takeaways are this.  Super light/thin and loaded on performance are the qualities that sell this ultraportable laptop.  The caveats are that it has poor battery life and is a bit pricey.
