HP is set to drop a very powerful convertible laptop on the masses at CES 2018. In fact, HP claims that the machine is the world's most powerful convertible PC, and we have no reason to doubt the company. The Spectre x360 15 is available with one of two potent processors with equally competent graphics subsystems. The first available is an 8th generation Intel Core i7-8550U processor that is paired with Pascal-based GeForce MX150 graphics. The second, and possibly more entertaining pairing is the 8th generation Core i7-8705G processor, which includes an on-package AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics... Read more...
Acer is unveiling some cool new hardware at CES 2018 and among that new hardware is the Acer Swift 7 (SF714-51). That laptop is being billed as the thinnest PC in the world with a profile just 8.98mm thick. Despite its svelte profile, the machine does have an Intel Core i7 processor under the hood. Acer also integrates 4G LTE connectivity and crams all that hardware inside an all-black unibody aluminum chassis complete with a 14-inch Full HD touch display covered in Corning Gorilla Glass . The internal battery promises 10 hours of runtime per charge, and Acer says that the Swift 7 will launch in... Read more...

Anyone that has worked with laptops for a while might recall the ThinkPad brand from back in the day before Lenovo purchased the client PC division from IBM. One of the most notable things about the old-school ThinkPads was the keyboard, complete with a blue enter key and a red trackpoint nub smack dab in the center. After Lenovo took over the ThinkPad line, some of the beloved industrial styling cues from those workhorse machines left along with the IBM logo. However, Lenovo is now celebrating the 25th anniversary of the ThinkPad brand with a unique ThinkPad 25 Anniversary Edition notebook... Read more...
There are plenty of mice and keyboards on the market today that aim at gamers with specific tastes when it comes to their favorite games. There are mice specifically for the fast actions that FPS gamers prefer and then there are mice for the multiplayer online battle arena or MOBA gaming. So, it makes sense that ASUS would want to offer a pair of notebook computers with each version tailored to gamers who prefer specific types of games. The first of the notebooks is the ROG Strix Hero Edition and it is aimed directly at the MOBA gamers out there with an 15.6-inch IPS display complete with sRGB... Read more...
If ever there was a brand of laptops that folks might refer to as “iconic,” it would be Lenovo’s ThinkPad line of business-class machines. The ThinkPad line was also a very successful go-to notebook brand for many mainstream consumers over the years as well. Known for their minimalist, straight-forward but highly functional design characteristics, the first ThinkPad was initially introduced by IBM in 1992. Lenovo then moved in to acquire IBM’s PC business in 2005. And so, if you’re already doing the math, today actually marks the 25th anniversary of the venerable, and yes iconic, ThinkPad laptop...

If you've been considering picking up one of Razer's beautiful Blade Pro notebooks, you're going to be happy that you've waited until just this moment, as the company has released a new Blade Pro notebook, and lowered its starting price at the same time. With the new Blade Pro, users can now dive in at the $2,299.99 price point with a laptop that includes NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1060, a 120Hz IPS 1080p panel, and Intel's Core i7-7700HQ. The laptop also includes a 256GB SSD, as well as a 2TB hard drive. Also included is 16GB of DDR4-2400MHz memory. Razer is letting users upgrade certain components... Read more...
Gearing up for education shouldn't have to be expensive, and that's something ASUS has proven to be the case with its brand-new VivoBook W202NA. This 11.6-inch laptop is designed to take a bit of a punch, and help students and teachers alike get their work done in an efficient manner. At $279, we wouldn't blame you if you figured that the W202NA's durability was standard fare, more of a tacked-on feature just to increase its allure. But in actuality, ASUS says this notebook is one of the most durable out there, using MIL-STD810G testing methods, having passed twist tests, 3.9' drop tests, and high-pressure... Read more...
It was not that long ago when the idea of buying a gaming laptop meant spending a heavy premium versus a desktop setup. That was always a tough pill to swallow, because for the most part, there was no way to upgrade critical components like a GPU, down the road a bit. What you got is what you would have to live with for the life of your laptop. That latter restriction remains today but now, more than ever with more powerful mobile platforms, gaming laptops can offer a reasonably good return on investment. That is certainly true of the EON15-S from Origin PC, the 15.6-inch frag-ready notebook... Read more...
ASUS has earned high praise over the years for its ZenBook line of ultraportables. They marry sleek ultrabook designs with generally good value. We usually don’t see a lot of groundbreaking new technology from the line-up, but not everyone needs that and consistent quality builds are more generally the ZenBook hallmark. Some people just want a thin, light laptop that gets the job done and looks good doing it. The ASUS ZenBook Deluxe 3 UX490UA is the big brother of the UX390UA we previously reviewed. It is, essentially, the same laptop bumped up from a 12.5-inch display to a 14-inch display. It’s... Read more...
Lenovo has carved out quite a business for itself in the laptop space over the years, led more recently by premium machines like the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon. However, there are obviously many more models in the ThinkPad family of products, beyond just the top-shelf X1 Carbon line. In the more affordable ThinkPad T470s (starting price of $959), you will find a thin, light ultrabook with many of the features Lenovo is known for, including the usual fantastic keyboard setup and solid performance. At just 2.9 pounds, you’d be forgiven for thinking it doesn’t pack much punch, but this Kaby Lake... Read more...
Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad business oriented laptop line is punctuated by a couple of stand-out models, but perhaps none as striking, at least for a ThinkPad, as the ThinkPad X1 series. In its current lineup, Lenovo offers two models specifically that command attention perhaps more than others, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga that we recently revisited--with its 360-degree hinge and sweet OLED display--and the new 5th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon that we'll be looking at here today. Though the 5th gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon may share a similar design signature and materials as the previous generation, Lenovo's... Read more...
Remember when convertible notebooks were considered a luxury? That's especially true for convertibles that have four different modes: laptop, stand, tent, and tablet. It was also considered a luxury to have a notebook that could last more than 10 hours on a single battery charge. Acer's TravelMate Spin B1 has all of those features, so it must fetch quite the premium, right? Nope - this laptop starts out at a meager $299 USD. Acer unveiled this laptop at a Microsoft education event, so its target audience is going to be obvious from the get-go. That also inherently means that there are going to... Read more...
