  • The oh-so-portable 14-inch Razer Blade has got you covered when you want to take your gaming on the road, with an Intel Haswell processor and the latest Nvidia graphics.


  • The Razer Blade 14 combines long battery life and excellent graphics performance in a slim and sexy design for a great mobile gaming experience.


  • The Haswell-powered Blade panders to PC gamers on the go, cramming pricey premium hardware into a petite chassis.


  • The Lenovo IdeaPad S405 (MAZ4EGE) is a frugal 14-inch laptop with relatively low performance. This would not be a problem for a lightweight (1,580 gram/~3.48 pound) notebook always on-the-move if it wasn't for the short battery life of three hours (WLAN test). The reflective display, which is too dark for outdoor use also limits mobility. Apparently, the manufacturer did not learn anything from the Netbook era: If a laptop performs well in terms of mobility, the user will also accept low performance.


  • In our testing, we observed no significant performance differences between our sample Acer Aspire One 725 and the Acer Aspire One 722 C62kk. In fact, the newer Aspire One 725 is merely a new variant with minor differences. Those buying this new model will once again receive a glossy HD display which will limit its viability in outdoor use. The display brightness could have been a bit higher as well. The one thing that makes the Aspire One 725 stand out from its predecessor is the single USB 3.0 port.


  • If portability is what you want, you'll get it with the AO725-0884.


  • The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71 adds a speedy 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce graphics to the ultrabook formula. What Asus has wrought is the thinnest and lightest 1080p HD power system on the market. It's the ultrabook to buy if you want to get real work done.


  • The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX32VD combines the best Ultrabook display with Nvidia graphics for extra gaming muscle.
