This past summer, Acer refreshed its Predator Helios 300 with an upgraded display supporting a 144Hz refresh rate, Intel 8th generation Core processor options, and faster storage. It... Read more...

Apple is often frowned upon in the tech world for many reasons, one of the major reasons being its famously closed ecosystem. Apple has often gone out of its way to ensure the use of approved accessories and software as well as ensuring if your device needs repair, you have to come to an Apple authorized service center. Apple's policy means you can’t simply order parts and fix your Apple gear, in many instances, as you would if you were using a Windows machine or Android smartphone. Apple famously did this with iOS 11.3 when it bricked iPhones with third-party screen repairs. Apple is now using proprietary software that will end any chance of independently repairing a new MacBook Pro or... Read more...
