Acer Unveils Monstrous Convertible Gaming Laptop | News & Opinion

Acer’s Predator Triton 900 prototype has a unique hinge that lets it serve as a laptop or a tablet, along with a mechanical keyboard. No word yet on when it might go on sale. August 29, 2018 11:30AM EST August 29, 2018 BERLIN—Acer today showed off a prototype gaming laptop with a hinge that lets it transform into a tablet. The Predator Triton 900 is a rare fusion of the popular gaming laptop and 2-in-1 convertible laptop categories. However, by…

Hands On With the Much-Improved Asus ScreenPad | News & Opinion

BERLIN—One of the coolest things about the Asus ZenBook Pro 15 is that its touchpad doubles as a second, tiny touch-screen display called the ScreenPad. The idea is cool, but the execution leaves a bit to be desired: The ScreenPad doesn’t really work as a touch screen and it’s a bit cumbersome to use as an extension of the laptop’s main display. At the IFA consumer tech trade show here, Asus announced a potential fix for those issues and an…

Lenovo Yoga C930 Preview | PCMag.com

One of the few things the otherwise-excellent Lenovo Yoga 920 2-in-1 convertible laptop is missing is a convenient place to store its digital stylus. That all changes with the Yoga C930, which will replace the Yoga 920 in October for a starting price of $999. Instead of an awkward plastic stylus holder that plugs into a USB port and blocks the rest of the ports on the Yoga 920’s right edge, the Yoga C930 will come with what Lenovo calls…

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 Preview

With an e-ink display instead of a keyboard and an extraordinarily thin chassis, the original Lenovo Yoga Book came very close to being a futuristic tablet PC of the sort you might recognize from a TV show or movie like HBO’s Westworld. But despite looking 22nd-century and having novel features like the ability to translate your drawings from actual paper to the main display, the Yoga Book was hobbled by its poky Intel Atom processor and the ho-hum quality of…

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme Preview

Lenovo’s current ThinkPad X series is mostly a way for the Chinese tech giant to show off how good it is at fitting the superbly designed, enterprise-class ThinkPad components into form factors beyond the staid, boxy business laptop. The company has tackled ultraportables (the ThinkPad X1 Carbon), 2-in-1 convertibles (the ThinkPad X1 Yoga), and even detachable tablets (the ThinkPad X1 Tablet). At the IFA 2018 electronics trade show in Berlin, Lenovo unveiled a new effort to ThinkPad X-ify an existing…

Dell G3 15 Review & Rating

Finally, we’re starting to see budget-minded gaming laptops you’d actually want to buy. A few of these systems have passed through our labs of late, each with specific strengths and clear compromises. The Dell G3 15 (starts at $699.99; $849.99 as tested) is the latest, offering a solid balance of price and performance via an Intel “Coffee Lake” Core i5 processor and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics chip. Our tester packs plenty of storage (thanks to both a…

MSI GL63 8RC Review & Rating

Budget-price gaming notebooks are polarizers. They’ll get you playing, but the next performance tier up from them usually isn’t that much of a financial stretch. That’s the dilemma facing the GL63, MSI’s 15.6-inch economy gaming model. (It starts at $899; $999 as tested.) The 8RC-076 configuration in this review pairs, oddly, a high-end hexa-core processor with an entry-level Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics chip. That’s not inherently a bad combo, but the GPU makes the GL63 a tough sell. For…

ARM Needs a Village to Raise Its Fanciful, Always-Connected Laptop | News & Opinion

Here’s an enticing prospect: a device that adds smartphone-like wireless connectivity to long battery life, a brilliant 4K touch screen, and everything else you’ll find in today’s best ultraportable laptops and tablets. Despite intriguing efforts from Microsoft and its partners over the past few months, such a powerful, always-connected laptop doesn’t really exist yet. But it could in the next few years, at least based on the plans for new processor designs that ARM unveiled on Thursday. The British chip…

Asus ROG Zephyrus S Preview

In 2017, the Asus ROG Zephyrus became the first gaming laptop we reviewed that was built conforming to Nvidia’s Max-Q philosophy. In a nutshell, Max-Q Design enables powerful graphics processors to fit inside thinner-than-ever laptops by limiting the power ceiling and the heat output of the chips. That gives laptop designers more sway in how they slim down their wares. Asus has pushed the concept and its engineers further with the ROG Zephyrus S, an even slimmer version of that…

US Government Agencies Can’t Buy Huawei or ZTE Products Anymore

President Trump signs the Defense Authorization Act 2019 into law and with it leaves Chinese companies including Huawei and ZTE out in the cold when it comes to supplying government agencies or any company working for them. Every year a new National Defense Authorization Act is signed into law which specifies the annual budget and expenditure of the US Department of Defense. But it aso specifies certain rules as to how expenditure can happen, and this year a number of…

Dell Latitude 5591 Review & Rating

Few deskbound PCs, and certainly few business desktops as opposed to serious gaming rigs, can keep up with the Dell Latitude 5591 (starts at $1,069; $2,412 as tested) and its six-core, 12-thread Intel Core i7 processor. The 15.6-inch Latitude isn’t a graphics or gaming ace, with its modest Nvidia GeForce MX130 graphics, but its “Coffee Lake” CPU powers it to near-workstation levels of productivity performance—too much performance for mere spreadsheets or emails. It’s a little too specialized to unseat our…

Acer Aspire E15 E5-576G-5762 review: Smooth productivity, bargain price

Yes, this mid-range model of Acer’s budget Aspire E15 line is a little thicker and heavier than an ultraportable, and we wish its 15.6-inch display were brighter. But for just $599, it delivers supple performance courtesy of its quad-core, eighth-generation Intel CPU, plenty of ports for everyday users, a discrete graphics card for casual gaming, and even a DVD drive. That’s a great value, even if it means toting around a couple extra pounds. Price and specifications We tested the…

Googled developers appears to be working on a new feature for Chrome OS called ‘Campfire’ that can dual boot an alternative OS that appears to be Windows 10.

August 13, 2018 3:00PM EST August 13, 2018 Windows 10 might be arriving on Chromebooks as a “dual boot” feature that’ll let you load up Microsoft’s operating system on startup.
