You’ve probably all heard the hype by now: tablets are set to overtake the laptop market by 2015, with sales of tablets pushing expensive laptops out as the number-one tech purchase. You can thank Apple for that hype—sales of the iPad were astronomical at one point, opening the door for literally hundreds of other manufacturers to make tablets.

When writing a review of a new Ultrabook or notebook computer, I always start with the basics. What does this “new” Ultrabook or notebook bring to the table?

The Intel Ultrabook is great for mobile use. Its ultraportable design makes it easy to travel with while its Ivy Bridge Intel Core processor and solid-state drive give you the performance you need to stay productive.

Last year at CES, it was all about the Ultrabook. Ultrathin and ultraportable but yet still powerful enough to be used as a capable computer, the Ultrabook was everything people wanted in a notebook. Now it seems that CES 2013 was all about the mobile all-in-one computer.

Whether you’ve just bought a retail computer or built one yourself, there’s one thing that happens to both of them the moment you turn them on: they quickly become obsolete. Technology is always changing and you’ll find yourself constantly trying to keep up with the latest upgrades. A quad-core processor may seem like a fast processor, but now AMD makes an eight-core processor.

Netbooks are great when you need a mobile computer that’s as lightweight as possible. But they leave much to be desired when it comes to computing horsepower. Netbooks simply don’t have enough oomph to run processor-intensive applications such as video encoding, CAD/CAM, gaming or music-production software.

Gaming, on the PC platform, used to be reserved for desktop systems. Notebook computers simply weren’t powerful enough. But today, notebook computers are more powerful than they need to be even for high-end gaming. A good example is the ASUS G74SX, available in two trim levels, the G74SX-A1 and G74SX-A2.
