A few weeks back, we covered the latest editions of Aorus’ gaming laptops: the X5S and X7 v5. Today, we’re back with another bit of news, as the Taiwanese company have unveiled special camo editions of their X3, X5 and X7 laptops. Take a look! Continue reading
Aorus unveiled their latest laptops today, the refreshed X7 and new X5S. Both models come with sixth-generation Intel Core i7 processors, high-end Nvidia graphics cards and fast PCI-e solid state drives plus capacious mechanical hard drives.
Gigabyte’s latest laptop is the 17.3-inch P57, which was announced at CES earlier this year and is now available online. It comes in two flavours: the mid-range P57K and more powerful P57W. Like the P35X v5 that we reviewed last month, it comes well-stocked with new-age tech, including a USB Type-C port, HDMI 2.0 and DDR4 RAM.
Today Corsair announced their latest mouse, an upgraded version of the Sabre with a new 10,000 DPI sensor.

There’s support for Skylake processors, high-end graphics cards and 4K via DP 1.4 or HDMI 2.0, all packed into an ultraportable, tiny cube. Continue reading
Today we’re taking a look at the Roccat Kave XTD 5.1 Analog. As you might have guessed from the long-ass name, this headset offers 5.1 surround sound and an analogue connection to your PC. Roccat are promising a headset that is comfortable, convenient and sounds great for less than £100, so let’s see how the Kave XTD 5.1 Analog performs.
Small Windows PCs definitely seem to be in vogue. Last week we looked at the Hannspree Micro PC, and today we’re looking an (admittedly larger) alternative: the Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico. Zotac are something of pioneers in the field of really small but still useful computers, and the Zbox Pico is their smallest effort so far. Let’s see how it stacks up.
