Gateway Select 1000

These tests of the 1GHz Intel PIII system are among the first uses of PC WorldBench 2000, an update to the PC WorldBench benchmark tests. PC WorldBench 2000 is based on 11 real-world applications: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Visio; Lotus WordPro and 1-2-3; Netscape Navigator; Intuit Quicken; Adobe Photoshop; and Corel PhotoPaint.

The PC WorldBench 2000 score reflects a system's performance compared with a baseline system: a Hewlett-Packard Pavilion with a 400MHz Pentium II processor and 96MB of memory. The baseline system's PC WorldBench 2000 score is 100. If another system achieves a score of 110, that system is 10 per cent faster than the baseline HP Pavilion when performing basic business tasks.

PC WorldBench 2000 scores should not be compared with PC WorldBench 98 scores reported previously, for those scores are not equivalent to PC WorldBench 2000 numbers. PC World will retest systems when appropriate, to determine their PC WorldBench 2000 scores.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
