Gigabyte’s Aero 15 gaming laptops boost the core count but keep the battery life

Gigabyte’s Aero 15 series now features Intel’s new 8th-gen, Core i7 CPU inside. That means six cores of blistering Coffee…

Asus ZenBook Flip 14 UX461UN review: A sleek, solid 2-in-1 laptop that’s eclipsed by our favorite

Peppy, slim, easy to look at and fun to type on, the $900 Asus ZenBook Flip 14 has a lot going for it. That said, it’s tough to recommend the Flip over our current favorite 2-in-1, the HP Spectre x360, which offers a more powerful CPU, a pair of speedy Thunderbolt 3 ports, and substantially better battery life, all for just $170 extra. Still, bargain hunters looking for a slightly larger display than the Spectre’s 13-inch screen may yet be…

Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720 Review & Rating

The Lenovo IdeaPad Miix 720 ($1,249) is a detachable Windows tablet that’s so light it can actually be held comfortably with one hand. Like most higher-end detachable tablets, though, the Miix 720’s expense makes it a relatively poor value compared with both conventional laptops and devices like the Apple iPad Pro. If that doesn’t bother you, the Miix 720 is a fine choice for a tablet, occupying a middle ground between the ultra-expensive Microsoft Surface Pro and the more affordable…

Apple’s New School-Friendly iPad Won’t Kill Chromebooks | Tom Brant

The biggest selling point of the new iPads, which Apple hopes will re-endear it to secondary schools around the world, is that it can do everything kids would otherwise use a budget laptop to accomplish, and much more. While it’s true the iPad is a cutting-edge educational tool, it’s not a replacement for many of the boring but practical features that educators and parents have come to appreciate about cheap laptops. At first glance, Cupertino’s claims about the iPad appear…

Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 (7373) Review & Rating

The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 (7373) is an attractive, reasonably priced convertible laptop. For $849.99 (as tested), it gives you a handsome aluminum chassis with an eighth-generation quad-core, instead of seventh-generation dual-core, Intel CPU. It has both a USB-C port and an HDMI port, so you don’t have to fuss with adapters for the former if you want to connect an external monitor. Its 13.3-inch screen is bright and colorful. But there’s one fatal flaw. The Inspiron 13 7373…

Acer Spin 5 (SP513-52N-58WW) Review & Rating

Don’t look to Acer’s product names for clues to its 2-in-1 convertible laptops’ screen sizes. The Acer Spin 3 is a 15.6-inch hybrid, while the Spin 7 is a 14-inch system. The Acer Spin 5 seen here ($799.99 as tested) is a 13.3-inch convertible, though there’s also a 15.6-inch model. If that isn’t confusing enough, you can look for our test unit by its model number (SP513-52N-58WW) or part number (NX.GR7AA.007). Whatever you call it, the Spin 5 has several…

Buyer Beware! Not All GeForce MX150 GPUs Are Created Equal | News & Opinion

Nvidia offers two variants of this laptop GPU and one is much slower than the other, but you might not be able to tell which one you’re buying. If you’re looking to buy a new thin and light laptop that has a little more graphical grunt than an Intel chip can offer, then a GeForce GPU will be tempting. But it turns out Nvidia isn’t making it very clear how much of a performance difference there is between some of…

We’ve found just such a laptop for a great price. An AMD A9-based version of the Acer Aspire A3 is just $260 at Staples today. That’s about $80 cheaper than Amazon’s third-party sellers right now, and is actually lower…
