While the 8th generation will eventually cover CPUs for everything from tablets to 2-in-1s to laptops to desktops, today’s announcement is just focused on light laptops and 2-in-1s — and […]

    Lenovo is Giving the Yoga Book a Couple of Bright New Paint Jobs

    Lenovo’s Yoga Book was a breath of fresh air last year — an unusual laptop that swapped out the keyboard for a flat slate that could be used to save handwritten notes and drawings to the computer. This year, Lenovo is giving that ultra-lightweight laptop some bright new color options, but we’re not sure if it’s […]

    Huawei MateBook X Review

    Usually I’d advise against buying a first generation effort, regardless of brand or device. That’s especially true for new device categories, but it still holds true for established machines like laptops. When a company jumps in for the first time, there are almost always little pitfalls and snags that arise from a lack of experience […]

    The Asus ZenBook Flip S is So Thin It’s Almost Dangerous

    What we think of it as a product aside, I can’t help but be amazed at what Asus just revealed at their Computex 2017 press conference today. The 13.3″ ZenBook Flip S is crazy small for a laptop of any kind, at just 10.9 mm thick — especially one with premium specs. But, after a little […]

    Microsoft Announces New Lighter Surface Pro With Longer Battery Life, and Improved Pen

    Forget about numbers. Microsoft chose not to call their latest device the Surface Pro 5, simply calling their new detachable 2-in-1 the Surface Pro. Announced today in Shanghai, the new device isn’t much different from its predecessor.

    The New HP Spectre x2 is the Latest High-Powered Surface Pro Competitor

    Detachable 2-in-1s — basically, tablets that come with thin keyboard covers — have long been attractive lightweight options for the backpack set, but they’ve been saddled with something of a stigma lately. Outside of the Surface Pro series, most of the options we’ve seen have been powered by Intel Core m processors — while those processors are more […]

    Last year we had to wait for back to school time, but this year Lenovo is hitting the books early. Today, they’re announcing their refreshed IdeaPad line, their collection of lightweight, premium laptops.
