    When Microsoft talked about their upcoming Mixed Reality platform late last year, they mentioned HP, Asus, Acer, Lenovo, and Dell as hardware partners.

    The Dell Inspiron 15 7000 G7 Gaming Laptop Combines Performance Hardware with an Impressive Sound System

    Earlier this year at Computex in Taipei, we saw a paradigm shift in gaming laptops. Long known for being thick, heavy, and only technically portable, the gaming laptop got a conceptual overhaul thanks to Nvidia’s Max-Q design, which allows hardware makers to stuff performance gaming components into much thinner and lighter shells. We saw Acer […]

    Dell Might Have the Most Intuitively Designed VR Headset Yet

    VR headsets still haven’t caught on as a mainstream thing, and there are a lot of reasons for that — price, the PC hardware needed to power really good games, and the fact that hopping in and out of VR isn’t exactly the most convenient thing to do.

    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.

    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 […]

    Microsoft Surface Laptop Review

    Microsoft has been killing it lately, but many of their great recent hardware announcements have been geared towards the prosumer. That’s why we were so excited to test the Surface Laptop, which is designed with students in mind. But after spending nearly a week with it, we can testify to the fact that more than […]
