Update 4/26/2016: We've updated our battery life test suite for this review and have new more real-world metrics to share on page 6. It was just about this time last year that HP first took the wraps off its chic, convertible ultrabook, the original Spectre x360. Although the Spectre name wasn’t new, HP’s approach to the ultrabook’s design language had been completely revamped, and it showed in the quality of the then all-new Spectre. Now, HP is releasing another revamped version of its slick ultrabook, making promises of an even better experience for users who want something just a bit larger... Read more...
The 2-in-1 and convertible PC space has changed significantly over the past couple of years. What was once a cluttered mess of kludges is now a well-defined market segment packed with refinement, power, and plenty of options. You could partially credit Microsoft's Surface line for making 2-in-1s an object of desire, but it's also products like the Dell XPS 12 that make today's line-up of convertible devices so much more interesting. Dell's XPS 12, which was first announced last fall, is just as capable as a laptop as it is a tablet. That's no small feat, and it's multifaceted abilities are largely... Read more...
At a glance, you may assume the phone we're testing here is one you've seen before -- a Nokia Lumia 1020 clone perhaps? Despite having a similar circular camera fixture on the handset's back side, suggesting a strong focus on photography, this is actually a newly released phone produced by ASUS. The ASUS ZenFone Zoom is an interesting beast. Though it was initially released for a more international audience, ASUS has since seen fit to bring the device to North American shores. It makes sense, though. Other than calling or texting, cameras have long been a key smartphone feature that gets used most... Read more...
Huawei may not be a household name here in the US, nor does the brand name roll off the tongue easily for many Americans, but you might be surprised to learn that the Chinese networking and telecommunications manufacturer is the 3rd largest smartphone supplier in the world, behind Apple and Samsung. Much of that global market share comes from China, but the company has been making significant inroads here in the US with devices like Google's Nexus 6P, which is a Huawei private labeled device.  Further, like Samsung and Apple, Huawei has access to significant manufacturing capabilities, including...

If you like the idea of using a stylus with your mobile device, then you probably prefer the precision and additional functionality over the convenience of a fingertip. That, or you've picked up a brand-new HP Pro Slate 8, a tablet targeted at working professionals that includes a rather useful and unique accessory dubbed the "Duet Pen" that enables some pretty interesting features. In the HP Pro Slate 8's case, you can still poke its 7.9-inch screen all you want with a finger. The stylus, an accessory that ships with the $470 tablet, isn't an absolute necessity. You don't need it for everyday... Read more...
It seems as though world has become enamored with drones. Over the past few years, drones have adopted more advanced capabilities while, become so easy to fly that a newb can take the controls to look like a pro, and there is a low barrier to entry with regards to pricing. As such, many governments and law enforcement agencies around the world are looking for ways to tackle the influx of drones. In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has initiated a drone registration program to keep tabs on who’s flying drones that weigh between 0.55 and 50 pounds. During the first 30... Read more...

Though it still hasn't grabbed consumers like some manufacturers had hoped, the smartwatch market is growing rather quickly, and a number of good options are currently available. For some users, price may be one of the key factors holding them back from buying a smartwatch. While many watches cost at least $250, and some can run hundreds of dollars more, ASUS’s latest ZenWatch 2 we'll be showing you here is available for as little as $129. Of course, any time we see a budget-friendly smartphone, laptop, tablet, or smartwatch we assume sacrifices were made to keep the price low. In the case of the... Read more...

Although updated sales figures haven’t yet been released, and some initial reviews were less than stellar, if the movie is any indicator, EA’s Star Wars Battlefront is poised to be a resounding success in the gaming community. And with an expansion pack inbound, that will likely feature content that ties in with the Force Awakens, it’ll probably continue that success for quite a while. AMD has been offering free copies of Star Wars Battlefront to new buyers of Radeon Fury graphics cards since mid-November 2015 and will continue to do so through the end of this month. But with...

At last year’s CES NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled the original Tegra X1-based Drive PX digital cockpit computer and discussed some of the difficulties associated with self-driving cars and the technologies that would be needed to overcome them. He discussed deep learning, deep neural nets, and the massive amounts of data that need to be collected and processed to ensure self-driving cars are not only safe, but instill confidence in the passengers and provide a good experience. Since then, Jen-Hsun claims that “several thousand man-years of effort have gone into developing... Read more...
As we covered earlier today, Lenovo has completely revamped their ThinkPad product lines for business and professional types, with not only the latest in platform technologies from Intel and others, like Skylake mobile CPUs and PCIe SSDs, but also some solid design updates and key feature additions. More and more, ThinkPad notebooks from Lenovo are taking on design cues and features that were brought to market with the advent of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. The new 14-inch ThinkPad X1 Carbon is now both thinner and lighter at just 2.6 pounds, with Intel Skylake on board and an NVMe PCI Express... Read more...
