Eurocom Racer 3.0 review

Eurocom's 15.6in. high-performance notebook gets the 4th-Generation Intel Core (Haswell) upgrade, and delivers the goods in terms of specification and speed. The design is uninspiring, though, and it's also bulky and heavy.

Toshiba Tecra R950-11F review

The Tecra R950 is a hefty 15.6in. business-grade notebook with an up-to-date set of security and manageability features, integrated mobile broadband and a solid but understated design. It performs well enough for its market, but we'd prefer a higher screen resolution.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 review

The Transformer Pad Infinity retains the superb physical design of its predecessors, adding a new high-resolution screen without impacting battery life. We'd like to see mobile broadband support, a lighter weight for the tablet/keyboard combo and a lower price, but the Infinity is still a class-leading product.

Lenovo ThinkPad T420s

Much of this ThinkPad's design — and particularly the excellent keyboard — is traditional, but it packs plenty of up-to-date specs too: Core i7 CPU, hybrid discrete/integrated graphics, solid-state drive, USB 3.0 and a high-quality multimedia subsystem. All this makes for an expensive notebook, but it's one we're happy to recommend.

HP Elitebook 8460p

The Elitebook 8460p is a robust, if somewhat heavy, 14in. business notebook. We don't like the keyboard design, but the matte screen is superb. We also appreciate the range of off-the-shelf configurations, and the high-quality audio subsystem.

First Take: Dell Vostro V131

Dell has responded to criticism of its stylish but disappointing Vostro V130 ultraportable business notebook by improving the battery in this Sandy Bridge update. However, it's still pricey for what you get.

Toshiba Portégé R830-138

Toshiba has updated the Portégé R700 with new components but retained the old chassis design. We'd prefer a more solid lid section, but the R830 is an impressively portable notebook. Battery life is good, but the cost remains high.
