Asus ZenBook Flip 14 (UX461UN) Review & Rating

How does the $1,299 Asus ZenBook Flip 14 (UX461UN) stand out in a crowd of 13.3-inch convertible laptops? First, it doesn’t have a 13.3-inch screen—the Flip’s chassis is barely bigger than its rivals, but its full HD panel measures 14 inches diagonally. Second, Asus says it’s the world’s thinnest 2-in-1 with discrete graphics—instead of the Intel integrated graphics of most convertibles. The system has an Nvidia GeForce MX150 card that proved about twice as fast on our gaming benchmarks. We’ll…

Gigabyte’s Aero 15 Laptop Gets 144Hz Bezel-Less Display | News & Opinion

Gigabyte is claiming to be the first to ship a bezel-less 144Hz panel in a gaming laptop. Gaming on the desktop is now supported by an array of displays with 144Hz refresh rates. Such a high refresh results in a much smoother image and less chance of motion blur. A few laptops have also managed to include a 144Hz panel, with Asus notably being the first to do so last year in the ROG Chimera. But today, Gigabyte is claiming…

Asus Chromebook Flip (C101PA) review: Is this convertible the future of Android tablets?

True to its name, the convertible Asus Chromebook Flip (C101PA-DB2) can flip backward into a tablet. Given its compact size, you could just as well say you’re buying a 10.1-inch Android tablet with a keyboard attached. Such a concept would have been sketchy just a year ago, when Google started making Android apps available to its newest crop of Chromebooks. And it’s true that neither Asus nor Google have completely solved the problem of how to re-format content for landscape-oriented laptop…

LG Gram 15Z980 review: It’s rich and thin, and its battery doesn’t stop

Packing a quad-core 8th-generation Intel processor and a robust battery into an impressively thin and light shell, the peppy but pricey LG Gram cranks all day without weighing you down. While we love the Gram’s lithe design and exceptional battery life, laptop shoppers looking for sheer speed may be disappointed by the system’s relatively casual pace. We also had some quibbles with the Gram’s cramped keyboard. Price and specifications We tested the top-of-the-line model of the LG Gram, which costs…

Hands On With Lenovo’s New Chromebooks | News & Opinion

BARCELONA—Lenovo’s three new Chromebooks can take a beating. They should, as they’re for kids. Chromebooks are tremendously successful in schools, and the new semi-ruggedized Lenovo 100e, 300e, and 500e look like they’re up to the predations of cranky ten-year-olds. We got some time with them at Mobile World Congress. Built Tough The new Chromebooks’ build is the most impressive thing about them. All three laptops have rubber bumpers and a shock-resistant, liquid-resistant, un-pryable keyboard. I pounded on them joyfully with…
