Asus NovaGo review: The promise and the problems with the Always Connected PC

The Asus NovaGo delivers the best battery life of any PC we’ve ever seen. If you’re always on the go, you should give serious consideration to what’s being called “Always Connected PCs,” a new breed of tablets and notebooks powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor—yes, the same kind of processor found in many smartphones.

The Acer Swift 3 thinks a cool look is worth some extra cash

Acer’s Swift 3 thin-and-light consumer laptop could be called a crowd-pleaser, if only because you can currently buy models ranging in price from $650 and up, with abundant in RAM and storage, as well as both AMD and Intel CPUs. With the upgraded unit unveiled Wednesday at Acer’s next@acer event in New York, the company’s raising the bar in all respects: a cooler look—and a higher price ceiling.  The Swift 3 we saw costs—are you sitting down?—$1,798. But don’t panic:…

How to add an SSD to your laptop

There is one upgrade that will universally improve a laptop’s performance: adding an SSD. This is a particularly attractive upgrade for budget laptops, which typically come with a hard drive. That’s the case with the extremely popular Acer Aspire E 15.  Mentioned in this article This laptop has been the top seller on Amazon for months and months. It’s easy to see why: for $350 (and below $300 during the holidays), you get a 7th-gen Core i3 processor, 4GB of DDR4…

The Acer Predator Helios 500 is a gaming laptop that’s overclockable in all the right places

The Acer Predator Helios 500 is a gaming laptop designed for extreme gamers. Not infinitely wealthy ones, such as the lucky 300 who bought a limited-edition $8,000 Predator 21 X, but reasonably well-financed ones who could instead “settle” for a model that offers an overclockable GPU and a few overclockable CPU options as well. That’s just the beginning. We saw the Predator Helios 500 on Wednesday, when it was announced at Acer’s next@acer event in New York. Up close, you…

The Acer Chromebook Spin 13 is a classy product rising above a mob of cheap clamshells

The Acer Chromebook Spin 13 is giving high-end Chromebooks for business another chance. God knows others have tried—RIP the Dell Chromebook 13 and the HP Chromebook 13. So far, most people seem to be happy with one of the inexpensive, modestly powered, plasticky clamshells that made Chromebooks an easy buy for entry-level users and the huge education market.  Mentioned in this article Acer Chromebook 14 CB3-431-C5FM Acer should know, as it’s sold over 10 million of them.

What Is USB-C? An Explainer

Truly Universal? A single standard to rule them all is mostly elusive in the realm of personal technology. At best, there’s a format war and one emerges victorious for a few years until an entirely new technology comes along. To wit, VHS ate Betamax but then was replaced entirely by the DVD, which is now facing extinction in the face of Blu-ray, a standard that itself slaughtered its chief rival, HD DVD. But USB-C is different, perhaps even truly as…
