Today we’re pleased to announce PortablePicker, a site for easily finding the best laptops and tablets.
PortablePicker lets you quickly filter and search for the perfect device, while also aggregating prices from dozens of retailers. Similar to PCPartPicker, you can set custom price alerts to get notified if any items matching your criteria go on sale.
We hope you find the new site useful. Please don’t hesitate to send us feedback or product addition requests on the PortablePicker forums. (Oh, and as you can guess by the name... mobile phones are on the list of things to be added very soon.)
A quick note on PortablePicker usernames:
We recognize that PCPartPicker users might want to create an account on PortablePicker with the same username. To prevent username squatting and confusion, we have reserved all PCPartPicker usernames on PortablePicker. To register your current username on PortablePicker, just register with your current PCPartPicker username and email address. This ensures that during the reservation window, no one can take your username from you. The reservation period ends 12/31/2015.

We've done another build video sponsored by Newegg.com. This time around we bumped up the budget to bring you an amazing gaming machine all bundled together into a SuperCombo. Check out the video below and let us know what you think!
Our latest build video was sponsored by Newegg.com. They put together a fantastic SuperCombo for the entire build and if you are looking to build a new computer you should give it a look!
Today we're pleased to roll out significant updates to the site. In addition to a rework of the look and feel, we've also introduced a number of new features and performance improvements. While we're not done with all the updates we're working on, we did want to push live what we have to date.
Site look and feel: First and foremost, you'll notice a massive change in the appearance of the site. This is the first fruit of bringing on board our design lead Phil Coffman.
Site performance: We massively improved the performance of part selection pages. You should notice a difference immediately. We made not just the backend server processing but also the page load and rendering times significantly.
Part sorting: Part categories are now default sorted by popularity. We aggregate a significant amount of usage data that we then use to determine this ordering. What you'll find is that the parts you most commonly want will be right at the top (or close). We've been doing this on the mobile version since its release last May and decided to roll it out to the desktop version as well.
Part price filter: You've been asking for this for a while, and we heard you! You can now filter parts, completed builds, and build guides by price.
Build guides: Up until now only staff could publish PCPartPicker build guides. We've opened it up now so that anyone can create and publish a guide. You can also view other guides, as well as vote and comment on them. Feel like you have the best idea for an Intel or AMD based build? Create your guide!
User avatars: On comments and user pages, you can now have your own avatar. Just go to your profile page and upload your own profile image.
Build tags: Initially just for build guides, we'll be rolling out tagging support for completed builds soon too.
Sortable saved builds: We've totally revamped how saved and completed builds are displayed in your profile. You can now easily sort saved builds, completed builds, and your build guides. We have a few more improvements slated for this area, so stay tuned!
Ability to reorder completed build images: Now you can reorder your completed build images however you would like. We'll pull the first three images in the set and use those for the thumbnails when viewing the list of completed builds.
We hope you like the changes, and of course, let us know if you run into any issues!
Our featured build this week is courtesy of PCPartPicker user skrillazoe. He shows off a stylish take on the black and blue NZXT H440 that is sure to impress anyone who gazes upon it. Check it out below and let him know what you think!
Happy Friday everyone! Our featured build this week is brought to you by PCPartPicker user SUP3RN4UT. His black and green themed build inside of the Corsair 350D packs a wallop. The CPU and SLI 680's are masterfully cooled with a custom loop that looks professionally installed. Check it out below and let him know what you think!
At PCPartPicker we strongly believe in giving back. To do so, we take a portion of our affiliate revenue and donate it to charity. To date we've contributed to Charity:Water and Extra Life. Through Charity:Water we've funded several large water and school projects in Malawi, Ethiopia, and Bangladesh. The time between donation and seeing the results is about 18-months, so there are projects we've funded still in the pipeline. We recently posted pictures from a recent completion report.
While we believe in giving back, we know many of you do too. So if you're already purchasing hardware for your next build, Amazon Smile lets you benefit a charity of your choosing when you make purchases through smile.amazon.com. They take 0.5% of the total of eligible items and donate that - but only when shopping through smile.amazon.com. The 0.5% does not change the cost of the items. Currently this offer is US only.
What we've done is add a user preference for the US version of this site that lets you opt-in to Amazon Smile links for any Amazon links on the site. Look for a checkbox labelled "Use Amazon Smile Links" in either the price settings on part category pages, or in your user preferences if you're logged in. If you set this option, any links to the US Amazon site will automatically get changed to smile.amazon.com links.
So, in a nutshell:
Purchases made through Amazon Smile donate 0.5% of the total to charity without increasing the cost to you.
PCPartPicker now automatically routes Amazon links through Amazon Smile through an opt-in user preference.
Happy Friday everyone! Our featured build this week is brought to you by PCPartPicker user Meithen. This is his first machine and it is an absolute doozy.
