Asus ZenBook UX331UN Review & Rating

If you’re searching for a well designed 13-inch ultraportable laptop with a relatively powerful discrete graphics card that’s easy to carry with you, you might be wringing your hands at the lack of options. In fact, some of the most popular ultraportables, including the Dell XPS 13 and the Apple MacBook Air, can’t be ordered with a discrete GPU. That’s where the Asus ZenBook UX331UN ($999) comes in. It’s among the thinnest and lightest ultraportables we’ve reviewed recently, but it’s…

What Is Nvidia Max-Q? | PCMag.com

Maxed Out Gaming, Minimal Builds Traditionally, gaming laptops have been chunky, hulking machines with big screens and short battery lives. They were meant to stay put on a desk. The cooling system required to properly run the discrete graphics cards typically makes a standard gaming laptop large and heavy, but significant strides have been made in the past few years to solve this problem. Razer, for one, deserves a tip of the hat for its sleek and slim Blade line,…

Should you buy a Core i9 laptop?

If you’re asking yourself: “Should I buy a Core i9 laptop?” don’t worry. We can help you cut through the hype, innuendo, and specs so you can make the right decision. Frankly, the name itself is enough to confuse casual observers. In desktops, the Core i9 brand indicates the processor packs a ton more CPU cores (10 to 18) than the other “Core” brands (4 to 8). But today, Core i9 in laptops mostly just signifies higher clock speeds—not more…

HP Takes on iPad Pro With First Detachable Chromebook | News & Opinion

Now that we live in a world where Chromebooks can run Android applications as natively as a Google Pixel 2, it makes sense that we’re starting to see detachable, hybrid Chromebooks that double as tablets. Acer, for example, announced the first Chrome OS tablet just two weeks ago, which sports a high-resolution touch screen and the same $329 price as the new iPad. Now HP is leading the charge in the 2-in-1 detachable Chromebook space with its Chromebook x2. Like…

Offered in several different screen sizes and with dozens of component configurations, the Lenovo IdeaPad 720s (starts at $999.99; $1,299 as tested) has something to offer for nearly every PC user.

The HP Chromebook x2 is a $599 premium tablet aimed at the iPad Pro

HP’s Chromebook x2 is more than the first Chrome OS-based 2-in-1 with a detachable keyboard and pen. Announced Monday, this $599 tablet wants to compete with the likes of the iPad Pro. If it makes any headway, the Surface Pro should probably worry, too. While the Chromebook x2 looks affordable compared to its iPad Pro and Surface Pro rivals, it does look expensive for a Chromebook—most of its category cousins are still around $300. Its features are pretty nice, though,…

Dell XPS 13 (9370) Review & Rating

Flagships don’t have to be big. Since its debut at CES in 2012, the Dell XPS 13 (starts at $999.99; $2,049.99 as tested) has racked up rave reviews as what the company calls the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop. It’s undergone numerous component upgrades, faced fierce competition (the HP Spectre 13 and the Razer Blade Stealth come to mind), and arguably even gotten a bit long in the tooth, yet the late-2017 XPS 13 (9360) reigns as our Editors’ Choice. Or…
