Notebook Finder Update – February 2013

After the initial large wave of new Windows 8 models at the end of 2012 the 2013 kicked off in a slower pace as we added only 266 new notebook models this month. We have finally started to see all those hybrid/convertible/touchscreen-enabled notebooks popping up in retail stores. The most interesting of them all was definitely the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 with it’s unique hinges that allow the screen to fold back completely converting it into a tablet. FYI – we prefer the Orange one! This months update brings the total number of notebook models in our Notebook Finder database to 6,570. Full list of notebooks models added after the break.

Notebook Finder Update – November 2012

Notebook Finder Update - November 2012

It’s been a very busy month for notebook manufacturers with Windows 8 being released just over a month ago. But it probably wasn’t the Windows 8 laptops that stole the spotlight last month. Probably it was the new MacBook Pro 13 inch with Retina display that generated the most buzz across the board. We have also seen a large influx of new ultrabooks battling for your Christmas stockings this in a couple of weeks. In total we added 538 notebooks this month which brings the total number of notebook models in our Notebook Finder database to 6,304. Full list of notebooks models added after the break.

Netbook Finder Update – September 2012

Netbook Finder Update September 2012

Yet another month confirming that manufacturers are leaving the netbook market with only 11 new models added to our Netbook Finder. We can’t say we blame them as netbooks have been pushed out of people’s wishlists by either way more portable tablets or way more powerful utlrabooks. But seems like some haven’t given up on them completely with Asus and HP leading the way at the moment as they have both been pumping out new models regularly. In total we added 11 netbooks added to our Netbook Finder database which brings the total number of netbooks in our database to 470. Full list of netbooks added after the break.

After a horde Intel Ivy Bridge laptops last month manufacturers slowed down a bit with releasing new models last month. With only Fujitsu and Lenovo finally releasing refreshed line-ups. Fujistu also finally joined the Ultrabook market with Fujitsu Lifebook U772 and UH572 that both have the looks but somehow didn’t manage to impress the reviewers. In total we added 197 notebooks this month which brings the total number of notebook models in our Notebook Finder database to 5,613. Full list of notebooks models added after the break.

Notebook Finder Update – August 2012

Notebook Finder Update - August 2012

This month we finally saw new models with Intel’s latest Core platform (Ivy Bridge) being released in bunches. Even Apple joined the party with Ivy Bridge update across their entire range of MacBooks. It did however axe the 17 inch model in the process but added a MacBook Pro 15 inch with Retina Display which packs a ridiculous resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 px all at measuring only 18mm thick and weighing in at 2kg. On top of that I packs a quad core processor and a very decent nVidia switchable graphics. But before you go running into a store to buy one makes sure you have at least £1,800 in your wallet otherwise you will leave the store empty-handed. In total we added 461 notebooks this month which brings the total number of notebook models in our Notebook Finder database to 5,456. Full list of notebooks models added after the break.
