Acer Nitro 5 (2019) review: A great budget-conscious laptop, at least for the moment

Acer’s latest Nitro 5 shows you just how affordable gaming laptops have become. Last year we reviewed the 2018 version of the Acer Nitro 5, which promised a great entry-level gaming experience for a mere $800 or so—cheaper even than some entry-level desktops I’ve built. Now 2019’s Nitro 5 (available at Best Buy) has come across my desk, touting the usual annual upgrades. That means slightly more than usual though, as we’ve had both CPU and GPU generation changes this year. What…

MSI’s GE65 Raider Review: A little thick, but a lot fast

MSI’s GE65 Raider is proof positive of how far gaming laptop performance has come. Just two years ago, a top-end gaming laptop would run on a quad-core 7th-gen CPU. The GE65 Raider doubles the core count with its 9th-gen Core i7-9880H chip. Real-time ray tracing support? The GE65 Raider has that, too, with its full-power GeForce RTX 2070. All this, mind you, weighs just over five pounds. This much power at this weight comes with a compromise, though, which we’ll get…

Huawei devices disappear from Microsoft Store and Best Buy, but remain on Amazon, Newegg

Microsoft appears to have pulled Huawei’s Matebook X Pro from its online shelves, and Best Buy, too, has followed suit. Huawei phones and devices are still available from Amazon and Newegg as of this posting, however.

The only reference to Huawei on the site is via third-party apps that reference Huawei…

Hands on with HP’s Omen X 2S 15: The world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop

Amid a growing crowd of super-thin, super-light and super-fast gaming laptops, HP’s Omen X 2S 15 just jumped above the noise. Sure this sub-five-pound laptop features an 8-core, 9th-gen Core i9-9880H CPU and a GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q GPU—those specs are a given on any high-end laptop. But all those other laptops don’t have a six-inch touchscreen in the keyboard deck. The Omen X 2S 15 does.   Adam Patrick Murray The HP Omen X 2S 15 features an 8-core 9th gen…

The dream of dual-booting Windows 10 on Chromebooks appears dead

It sounded dreamy. Late last year, signs of an “AltOS” mode appeared in Google code, indicating that the company was working on a way to let you dual-boot into Windows 10 on high-end Chromebooks like the Pixelbook. It was apparently too good to be true, alas, as new developments suggest that Google abandoned the secretive “Project Campfire” months ago. Poking around Chromium code, Redditor u/crosfrog noticed comments stating AltOS mode is now deprecated, as first reported by Kevin Tofel at…

Razer Blade 15 Review: The world’s smallest 15-inch gaming laptop packs a punch

The Razer Blade 15 reminds us that the good old days—when a gaming laptop was large and productivity laptops were smaller—are over. Claiming to be the “smallest 15-inch gaming laptop,” the redesigned Razer Blade 15 likely makes good on that promise by being damn near as small as, say, the popular workhorse Dell XPS 15, while offering blistering gaming performance. Mentioned in this article The previous-generation Razer Blade 14 had rounded corners, huge bezels and sported a 14-inch screen. Despite…

What to Expect From Apple’s October Mac Event

To nobody’s great surprise, the previous Apple event, in September, was the traditional start-of-fall fest that was all about the phones, revealing the iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max to the world.

Rather than hosting the press in California as it usually does, Apple is coming right to PCMag’s backyard…

HP Cuts Corners on New Spectre x360 | News & Opinion

Once upon a time, Apple laptops had MagSafe power adapters, which magnetically clung to the side of its MacBooks instead of attaching to a plug. This mid-2000’s innovation was a godsend for people who used their laptops in coffee shops, airports, and other settings where someone might trip over a cord and yank the laptop off a lap or table if its cord didn’t disconnect. Fast forward a decade. MacBooks and other similarly premium ultraportables, like HP’s Spectre x360, have…

HP Spectre x360 13 (2018) hands on: ‘Whiskey Lake’ power sits alongside 22 hours of battery life

HP’s flagship HP Spectre x360 13 convertible laptop has previously won PCWorld’s Editor’s Choice award on the strength of its frequent, substantive improvements. Its 2018 update offers even more: incredible battery life (22.5 hours!), a new Intel “Whiskey Lake” processor, eSIM LTE, and even a webcam “kill switch.” What you’ll immediately notice, though, is a faceted chassis design that angles the corners and offsets the power connections and USB-C port. On the side of the chassis is also a small…
