Lenovo ThinkPad L580 Review & Rating

Want a ThinkPad? Good luck choosing. Lenovo offers ThinkPad A, E, L, P, T, X, and Yoga models micro-targeted at different audiences. Some are familiar, but others are less clear. One page on Lenovo’s site describes the ThinkPad L machines as affordable notebooks for the enterprise, another as “our most green business laptops.” The 15.6-inch ThinkPad L580 (starts at $770; $989 as tested) will certainly save you some green; it’s a desktop-replacement that limbos under the thousand-dollar line, yet is…

Dell G7 15 Review & Rating

Dell has reinvented its gaming-laptop lineup this year, separating its former Inspiron gaming machines from its non-gaming Inspirons by splitting the gamers off into their own “G” series, replete with fresh designs. The G7 15 family (starts at $849.99) is one of these newcomers, straddling the line between entry-level and midrange pricing and power. You can get one of these laptops configured for well under $1,000, but our $1,209.99 test unit packs an Nvidia Max-Q GeForce GTX 1060 to provide…

The Best Touch-Screen Laptops of 2018

How to Shop for a Touch-Screen Notebook Ever since smartphones ate the world whole, tapping and touching screens has become an expectation in new gear you buy.

Touch screens are a staple of modern computing, but not every laptop has one. It’s a feature that you need to shop for…

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition Now Ships With Ubuntu 18.04 LTS | News & Opinion

For those of us unwilling to pay the high price of a MacBook Pro and tired of all the Windows 10 updates, there’s always Linux! Dell just updated its premium XPS 13 laptop with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, which Canonical will support for five years. The sales figures for laptops would have you believe there’s only really two operating systems available: laptops running Windows 10 and Apple’s MacBook range running macOS. But there’s a third option in the form of Linux,…

Acer Swift 7 (2018) Review & Rating

Acer’s Swift 7 ultraportable is back, and with a profile just over a third of an inch thick, it’s holding on to its bragging rights as the world’s thinnest laptop. It’s no humble-brag, either: It’s going to be tough for any laptop maker to top this machine on thinness, seeing as the profile is barely thick enough to host any ports at all. With a spiffy, all-metal design, the Swift 7 is a real stunner, but it’s pricey at $1,699.99,…

Acer Nitro 5 review: A Coffee Lake-flavored gaming laptop that won’t empty your wallet

Acer’s Nitro 5 gaming laptop says you can have a modest budget of $800 or less and get a decent amount of horsepower for playing AAA games. While most of the Nitro 5’s parts are midrange at best, it takes things up a notch with its new Coffee Lake CPU, offering solid mobile gaming performance in an affordable, if somewhat hefty package.  Gamers who insist on maxing out their graphics will have to settle for middling frame rates on the Acer…

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2018, Touch Bar) Review & Rating

The non-“Pro” Apple MacBook may be the most portable macOS laptop, but the 13-inch, Touch Bar-equipped Apple MacBook Pro (starts at $1,799; $3,699 as tested) is the most versatile. Savvy configuration options let it serve as an everyday ultraportable for a self-employed frequent traveler or a well-heeled college student, a platform for light-to-moderate video and photo editing, and many uses in between. The key upticks in Apple’s 2018 model include more processor cores and threads (the biggest deal, for most…
