Serial ATAs are a computer bus interface to connect storage devices to bus adapters and are a replacement to the earlier PATA standard. SATAs are a cut above the PATA interfaces by their reduced cabal sizes and the resulting decrease in cost, native hot swapping which due to higher signalling rate is quicker than data transfer, and more efficient transfer. Consumer desktops and laptops and most recent embedded applications now use SATA .

  • The Acer Aspire M5-583P-6428 laptop gets a giant boost in performance and battery life, and does it without budging on the reasonable price.


  • The Acer Aspire M5-583P-6428 offers solid Haswell performance, more than 8 hours of battery life and a 15.6-inch touch screen in a slim package.


  • The revised Acer Aspire M5 is an excellent example of what Intel’s new 4th-gen processors make possible. Little change has come to the chassis, and most other hardware is unchanged, so the improvements can generally be attributed to the laptop’s Core i5-4200U. And boy, are there improvements. Battery life in our Web browsing benchmark has increased by 30 minutes, while light-load endurance improved by almost four hours. Compute performance is about the same as before, but 3D performance has improved dramatically. Fan noise and external temperatures are lower, too.


  • Though it still has a couple of faults, the new version of the Acer C7 Chromebook is faster, longer lasting, and better all around. All this and its very low price tag makes it the best inexpensive Chromebook on the market.


  • Acer's Chromebook delivers Chrome OS for a rock-bottom price, but it's sunk by short battery life and a thicker and heavier design than the competition.


  • Well, you might just prefer having a familiar laptop experience, complete with keyboard and trackpad, and if you're already living the Google life with Docs, Calendar, Gmail, Hangouts, Google+ and more, you'll immediately feel at home as soon as you sign into a Chromebook. And that's fine. If that's you, we think you should consider one.
    Basically, then, we like the idea of a Chromebook; we just don't particularly like this Chromebook. At least, we don't particularly like the Acer C7 Chromebook as a Chromebook.


  • The Sony VAIO Pro 11 (SVP11215PXB) is a sharp looking ultrabook powered by a fourth-generation Intel Core i7 CPU. It offers a beautiful hi-res touch-screen display and is extremely thin and light, but its graphics performance is middling and its battery life comes up short.


  • Sony Vaio Pro 11 offers a rare combination of attractive attributes: our test model weighs less than 900 grams (2 pounds), has a good Full HD IPS display, a stylish design and sufficient performance for most tasks. Overall, a good mix of important attributes.


  • The Sony VAIO Pro 11 packs Intel's latest Haswell processor and a full HD touch screen into the lightest 11-inch Ultrabook on the planet, but the keyboard could be better.


  • The Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 is a high-performing budget laptop that outlasts and outperforms rivals. It's a great choice for those value-minded users who don't mind paying a little bit more to get a little more performance.


  • The Acer Aspire E1-572 is a slim and light business notebook with adequate "office" performance. The system is speedy enough to handle everyday tasks and also handles the playback of Full-HD material without any issues. The integrated GPU is sufficient for older and less demanding games. We really like the matte Full-HD display panel, which is a positive surprise - despite the lower brightness and contrast - considering the price point of around 400 Euro (~$540).


  • For $499, the Acer Aspire E1-572-6870 is an affordable and lightweight 15-inch notebook with Intel's latest fourth-generation processor.


  • The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 offers category leading performance and a healthy feature set, but the ho-hum design and short battery life keep it from ranking higher.


  • Toshiba's Satellite S55t-A5277 has the power needed to handle anything you can throw at it, but a poor display and short battery life hold it back.


  • The Toshiba Satellite S55t-A5277 comes close to being a great mainstream slim gaming laptop, but it's undone by an unimpressive display.
