We have arrived at the end of another week, complete with several items for you to check out before the weekend hits in full. There's a review on the AMD A10-7850K Kaveri APU, which sees if it could be the new king when it comes to integrated graphics. We also have a look at the BitFenix Comrade mid-tower case to see how the company's budget entry fares. Kingston's DataTraveler microDuo gets put to the test on both PCs and mobile devices, thanks to its full sized and micro USB ports. Lastly we have a look at some of the best laptops around for productivity, since there are times when it's good to get work done instead of gaming.

April just keeps moving right along, and luckily we have several reviews to keep up with it. There's a look at the SilverStone Raven Z RVZ01 mini-ITX case, which could be the perfect stealth case for a fully equipped gaming PC. We have a couple different CPU coolers to check out too, like the Noctua NH-U12S and the Raijintek Pallas. Both are on the smaller side of air coolers, although the Raijintek certainly qualifies as low profile. Finally the Kingwin KF-252-BK internal hard drive hot swap rack gets put to the test, which could be an inexpensive means to adding some hot swap drives to your system.

There's a look at the ASUS A88X-Pro FM2+ motherboard, which has some fairly unique features and color scheme to set it apart from other motherboards for AMD's APU line. We have another take on the CM Storm Havoc gaming mouse with its 8200DPI, eight programmable buttons, and Omron Micro Switches. An all-in-one PC from Acer gets put to the test, however this setup is running Google's Android OS for a different take on the home computer.

We finish off the first full week of March with some reviews on two different products from the same company, Lenovo. The first is a look at the company's Yoga 2 Pro Ultrabook, which has the same unique lid design as the older model, but comes in a lighter and thinner version. It also packs a 3200x1800 resolution screen for some truly impressive visuals. The other Lenovo product is the Miix 2 8, an affordable 8-inch tablet running Windows 8.1. Now, if you're hankering for something else, we have a review on the EVGA GTX 780 ACX Double BIOS video card, which looks to be about as far away from the reference cooler as one can get. Finishing off the week is a download of Windows 8.1 Update 1 and a podcast looking back at the biggest news and reviews of the past week.

We have just a couple of items for you to check out today, but both are quite interesting. There's a look at the AMD's new AM1 platform, which feature a socketed Kabini APU and an overall goal of being a perfect low cost option for emerging markets. The motherboards can accept upgraded APUs down the road, so it certainly seems like AMD is planning ahead with this new platform. Our other item for today is the BitFenix Colossus M MicroATX case, and it's a bit of a cross between the full-tower Colossus and the smaller Prodigy M. There are plenty of new features in the Colossus M, though, as well as a pretty unique exterior.
