Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (4th Gen) hands-on review

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga (4th Gen) hands-on review

Lenovo never made an all-aluminum ThinkPad. Until now, that is. At CES 2019, the company introduced the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga with a CNC-milled aluminum chassis. It’s a big change, yet it ultimately does little to help or hinder the 2-in-1.

Samsung Notebook 9 Pro hands-on review

Samsung’s laptops tend to feel a bit flimsy, without the reduction in price. The company’s latest 2-in-1, the Notebook 9 Pro, is an attempt to correct that. The redesign brings a full-aluminum chassis to the lineup, adding some much-needed rigidity. Can that make the Notebook 9 Pro a serious MacBook Air alternative?

Razer Raptor 27 hands-on review

Razer’s showed its gaming monitor, the Raptor 27, at CES 2019. It’s at tried-and-true Razer product. Made of aluminum and lit with Chroma RGB LEDs, it’s everything a Razer fan would want. Beyond that, the Raptor 27 has a couple of interesting tricks up its sleeve, including a unique cable management system.

Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DC) review

Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DC) review

Ultrawide and 4K might be the buzzwords in monitors right now, but the Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin monitor manages to be more exciting by just nailing the basics. Not only is this monitor super-thin, it has fantastic image quality to boot.

Asus ZenBook 15 UX533 review

Asus ZenBook 15 UX533 review

The ZenBook 15 leverages tiny bezels to pack some real processing and graphical power into a remarkably small chassis. Performance and battery life are very good for productivity and entry-level gaming, but power users and hardcore gamers should look elsewhere.
Alienware AW341BDW Utrawide Gaming Monitor

Alienware AW3418DW Curved Gaming Monitor review

Alienware AW3418DW Curved Gaming Monitor review

Don’t underestimate the understated appeal of Alienware’s 34-inch curved ultrawide gaming monitor. Although this monitor doesn’t pack aggressive gaming aesthetics, it’s refined looks and balanced performance makes it a winner. The curved 34-inch panel, WQHD resolution display, and fast refresh rates will keep gamers happy.

LG 34WK95U-W ultrawide monitor review

Want a 34-inch ultrawide? You have many options from Samsung, Dell, and HP. All of them are good. The LG 34WK95U-W beats them all, but there’s a big catch. Our LG 34WK95U-W examples the image quality of this top-tier monitor to help you decide if it’s worth the price.

Razer Blade Stealth (2019) review

Razer Blade Stealth (2019) review

Without discrete graphics, the Razer Blade Stealth never fit well into Razer’s lineup of laptops. That has changed with the newest version, which provides the option for a high-powered Nvidia MX150. Is the entry-level GPU enough to make the Stealth worthy of the Razer name?

Alienware m15 review

Alienware m15 review

Thin and light gaming is a new category of laptop, led by options like the Razer Blade. Alienware now has its own entry: The Alienware m15. It’s not the thinnest, lightest, or sleekest option in the bunch, but it doesn’t hold back in terms of performance. It combines a traditional Alienware look modern design.
Asus ZenBook 14 UX433FN

Asus ZenBook 14 UX433 Review

Asus ZenBook 14 UX433 Review

The ZenBook 14 aims to be the smallest 14-inch notebook around, and it succeeds thanks to some tiny bezels that enable a pint-sized chassis. Performance and battery life are good but not great, and the notebook lacks any standout features other than its size.

Anycubic Photon 3D printer review

If you don’t mind working with messy resin, the Anycubic Photon 3D printer offers print quality that very few filament-based printers can achieve. This printer is on the same level as machines that cost six times as much. Dt ran the device through it's paces and came away impressed.
Acer Swift 7 Impressions

We want every laptop to be as thin as an iPhone. But is it practical?

We want every laptop to be as thin as an iPhone. But is it practical?

The Acer Swift 7 is the thinnest notebook you can buy, and in many ways, it feels like the notebook of the future. But it makes too many compromises along the way, particularly in its no-click touchpad and weird keyboard layout, and performance and battery life suffer.

Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 review

Lenovo Yoga Chromebook C630 review

The Yoga Chromebook features great build quality, a 1080p display, and all-day battery life. All that for $540? That’s right. If you’re looking to spend less than $600, the Yoga Chromebook is much easier to recommend than a Windows 10 laptop.

Huawei MateBook X Pro review

The Huawei MateBook X Pro is an impressively thin and light laptop that crams a 14-inch display into a 13-inch body.

HP Spectre x360 15-inch (2018) review

HP Spectre x360 15-inch (2018) review

HP’s Spectre x360 15-inch is one of the first 2-in-1s to boast Intel’s Core i7-8705G, a chip with AMD Radeon Vega graphics on-board. It promises a level of performance rarely seen in flagship laptops, but the speed comes at a cost. Battery life and portability are problems anyone looking to buy this Spectre will need to consider.

HP Spectre Folio review

HP Spectre Folio review

The Spectre Folio is a truly different breed of notebook, leather-wrapped and exceedingly long-lasting on a charge. It feels great in the hand and provides all-day productivity performance. We can quibble and talk about a too-small Synaptics touchpad, but that’s all we got.

Dell Inspiron 13 7386 2-in-1 review

Dell Inspiron 13 7386 2-in-1 review

The Dell Inspiron 13 7386 2-in-1 packs plenty of power under the hood and comes a sleek updated webcam and a slim display. It is a good notebook that gets a speed boost from new Intel CPUs, but the bad battery life and image quality still hold it back from its potential.

Lenovo Chromebook C330 review

Lenovo Chromebook C330 review

Lenovo’s Chromebook C330 is a budget-oriented Chrome OS 2-in-1 that aims to provide Google Play support and media consumption convenience at a low price. It succeeds in those objectives and lasts long on a charge, but its very poor performance hold it back.

BenQ EL2870U 4K monitor review

BenQ EL2870U 4K monitor review

4K and HDR are some of the big-ticket specifications everyone wants to own. But can they be done for cheap? This $449 BenQ monitor attempts to do just that, but it comes with a couple of important compromises in image quality, and as our BenQ EL2870U review finds, that might not be worth the sacrifice.
Acer Chromebook 13 review

Acer Chromebook 13 review

Acer Chromebook 13 review

Acer’s Chromebook 13 is a plain old clamshell notebook that doesn’t even boast a touch display. Instead, it focuses on bringing a solid build and superior performance to the Chrome OS platform. It mostly succeeds at both, but that’s not enough to separate it from the growing Chromebook pack.

Intel ‘Bean Canyon’ NUC Review

Intel ‘Bean Canyon’ NUC Review

Intel’s Next Unit of Computing, or NUC, offers tiny desktops with performance that keeps up with much larger systems, and they’re even affordable. But there’s a catch. You must install your own RAM and hard drive. Our Intel NUC ‘Bean Canyon’ review considers whether it’s worth the trouble.
HP Spectre x360 13-ae002xx review

HP Spectre x360 13 (Late 2017) Review

HP Spectre x360 13 (Late 2017) Review

HP refreshed its Spectre x360 13 with Intel’s 8th-gen CPUs, boosting its speed and battery life, all the while thinning out the chassis. It remains our favorite 360-degree convertible 2-in-1, with some of the best performance and longevity around and a design that remains modern and attractive.

Microsoft Surface Studio 2 review

Microsoft Surface Studio 2 review

Most creative pros are Apple users, but with the Surface Studio 2, Microsoft makes a serious attempt to win them over. There aren't a lot of new features on the outside, but the internal updates are significant. Despite its niche appeal, you’ll wish you had a few grand to drop on this beauty.

Apple MacBook Air (2018) review

We’ve waited a long time for an update to the MacBook Air, and Apple finally delivered. With a lot of features ported over from the MacBook Pro, this new laptop is what a lot of Apple fans have always wanted. However, upon deeper inspection, it might not have been worth the wait.

The redesigned Dell XPS 13 doesn’t reinvent the laptop’s winning formula but does offer much-needed tweaks including the latest Intel hardware and a thinner, lighter body.

Asus ZenBook UX330UA review

One of our favorite laptops, the Asus Zenbook UX330UA, gets updated to feature the 8th-gen Intel Core CPU. How much difference does the new processor make, and how does it compare to its successor, the UX331UA?

Apple Mac Mini (2018) Review

Apple’s new Mac Mini doesn’t look much different from its predecessor, and it’s more expensive. Yet the changes under the hood make a case for its consideration as your new Mac. Can this entry-level machine hold its own? Read our Apple Mac Mini (2018) review to find out.

Dell Ultrasharp 49 vs. Samsung CHG90

Dell Ultrasharp 49 vs. Samsung CHG90

Picking a 49-inch, curved monitor should be easy, but there's a surprising amount of competition in even that niche-ultrawide space. Taking two of the best options out there to see which would be the better option for you, we pitted the Dell Ultrasharp 49 vs. Samsung CHG90 in the age-old battle of buck for your buck.

Dell Ultrasharp 49 review

Dell Ultrasharp 49 review

Samsung’s ultrawide CHG90 opened the door for massive monitors last year, and now Dell is stepping through that door with its own gigantic screen. Dell’s Ultrasharp 49 looks similar to the Samsung at a glance, but it’s for a different audience. Our Ultrasharp 49 review breaks down the differences.

Acer Chromebook Spin 15 review

The Acer Chromebook Spin 15 takes the company’s very good 15-inch Chromebook and lets you spin the display. You won’t want to use it as a tablet, but it’s a good option for inexpensive Netflix binging. And the battery will keep you going for a very long workday indeed.

Razer’s most basic Blade 15 is the one most gamers should buy

Razer's Blade 15 is an awesome laptop for both gamers, streamers, professionals, and anyone else needing serious go in a slim profile, but its price is out of reach for many games. The new Blade 15 Base solves that problem with few sacrifices, and it's likely the one you should buy.

Lenovo Legion C730 Cube review

Lenovo Legion C730 Cube review

Though the Legion C730 Cube may look like a cooler with its carry handle, and it does a good job keeping its “six pack” -- in the form of Intel’s hexa-core Core i7 CPU – cool, Lenovo designed this desktop for you to take to your next LAN party. With AMD or Nvidia graphics options, the C730 is also a VR-ready system.

HP Envy x2 review

HP Envy x2 review

HP swapped out the ARM processor in its original Envy x2 for a low-power Intel CPU and got what it wanted: Better performance and decent battery life. But it dropped the ball on the keyboard cover, and the display can’t compete with its higher-resolution competitors.
