Samsung Galaxy Book 2 review

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 review

Samsung’s latest Windows tablet comes with the Snapdragon 850 Processor—instead of Intel inside. It takes many design elements from the Surface Pro, and with bonus kicks like a Super AMOLED display and always connected LTE. But at $1,000 is the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 truly worth the price? We dive deeper to find out.

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 review

Lenovo Yoga Book C930 review

Projects as experimental as the Yoga Book C930 are a rare breed. This keyboard-less, dual-screen laptop takes what was clunky about the original Yoga Book, and streamlines the functionality using an e-ink screen. Our review will help you decide if this is a novel new PC alternative, or just a fad.

Lenovo Yoga C930 Review

Lenovo Yoga C930 Review

The Lenovo Yoga C930 updates the company’s premium consumer 2-in-1, shedding the iconic watchband hinge and packing some serious audio components into the Dolby Atmos sound bar. It’s fast, conservative, and built like a tank, with some of the longest battery life around.
Samsung CHG90 Ultrawide Monitor review

Samsung CHG90 ultrawide monitor review

Samsung CHG90 ultrawide monitor review

When it comes to gaming monitors, sometimes wide just isn’t wide enough. Samsung has taken that to a new max with its 49-inch gaming monitor, the CHG90. With quantum dot technology, a 144Hz refresh rate, and ungodly amounts of screen real estate, it just might be the most impressive gaming monitor ever made.

Asus ZenBook 13 UX331UA review

Asus ZenBook 13 UX331UA review

It’s never been truer that you don’t need to spend over a thousand bucks to buy a good laptop. The new ZenBook 13 takes what we’ve always loved about its predecessor and makes enough small refinements to keep it ahead of its competitors. Though just $800, it fares better in some areas better than laptops that cost twice as much.

Dell G3 Gaming Laptop review

Dell G3 Gaming Laptop review

Compromise and budget gaming laptops go hand-in-hand, but with the Dell G3 Gaming Laptop, Dell has figured out how to balance what gamers want with what they can live without. It’s not a perfect gaming laptop, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find performance value.

Intel Core i9-9900K review and benchmark

Intel has launched the first Core i9 for the average gamer. We ran the i9-9900K through its paces to see how it compares to the previous generation, as well as the best from AMD. Despite some controversies around its release, it might be the best gaming processor ever made.

Surface Pro 6 review

Surface Pro 6 review

It’s been updated to its sixth generation, now coming dressed in black and packing a quad-core processor. Those two recognizable features of the Surface Pro 6 are here -- and are great. But don’t be fooled: You’ll have to dig a little deeper to see where Microsoft has made some truly noteworthy improvements.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme review

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme review

Lenovo’s ThinkPad line is targeted at business use, but it’s long appealed to hardcore PC geeks. The X1 Extreme, which combines a powerful processor and high-resolution screen with Nvidia graphics, seems built for them. Check out our Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme review to find out if it’s a win.
Samsung Chromebook Plus V2

Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 review

Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 review

Samsung swapped out the ARM processor for Intel in the Chromebook Plus V2, making this moderately priced 2-in-1 faster but not as long-lasting. Everything else remained roughly the same, meaning it’s a well-built Chromebook that doesn’t stand out regarding price, performance, or panache.

Lenovo Legion Y730 15-inch Review

Lenovo Legion Y730 15-inch Review

Lenovo’s Legion Y730 15-inch is a handsome mid-range laptop that has the hardware credentials you’ll need to tackle modern games. The price and battery life, however, balance the laptop’s performance. Can it conquer competition from Dell, Asus, MSI, and many more?

Razer Blade 15 (2018) review

Razer Blade 15 (2018) review

The new Razer Blade wants to be a true hybrid device -- the kind of laptop that has great gaming performance without being big, bulky, or flashy. Think it's impossible? Think again: Razer may have finally succeeded in that goal without cutting corners on performance, though it won't come cheap.
MacOS Mojave 10.14

MacOS Mojave review

MacOS Mojave review

Mojave is the latest version of MacOS, and it's out now. Chock-full of quality-of-life upgrades, we took it for a test drive to get a sneak peek at what you can expect from the next major update to MacOS. Let's see how it stacks up to last year's High Sierra.

HP Spectre 13 (2017) review

HP Spectre 13 (2017) review

Our HP Spectre 13 review evaluates the “thinnest touchscreen notebook” to see if you can make something smaller and increase its speed and longevity. The results are mostly positive, but the thin-and-light competition hasn't stood still, leaving the Spectre 13 behind in terms of battery life and value.
HP Chromebook x2 Review

HP Chromebook x2 Review

HP Chromebook x2 Review

HP’s Chromebook x2 acts a lot like Microsoft’s Surface Book 2, with a well-equipped tablet that plugs into a keyboard base that’s heavy enough to keep the combination mostly stable. It’s a fast 2-in-1 that’s well-built and looks great, and it makes using Chrome OS a real pleasure. Is this premium Chromebook the best one you can buy?

Alienware 17 R5 review

Alienware 17 R5 review

With a 17-inch display and a chassis weighing in at nearly 10 pounds, the Alienware 17 R5 is truly massive. Between its weight and its impressive top-end hardware -- including an Intel Core i9 -- it’s certainly outfitted like a gaming desktop so let’s find out if it performs like one.

Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 with ScreenPad review

Asus ZenBook Pro 15 UX580 with ScreenPad review

Asus packed some powerful components into the ZenBook Pro 15 UX580, including a Core i9 and a GTX 1050 Ti. But the ScreenPad is the obvious star of the show, a second screen built right into the touchpad. Is the cool-factor enough to set this 15-inch laptop apart from the crowd?

Acer Aspire 5 review

Acer Aspire 5 review

Acer’s updated Aspire 5 benefits greatly from Intel’s latest technology, including its 8th-gen processor and Optane memory. The Aspire 5 offers a lot of performance for not a lot of money, but its display and battery life betray its budget nature and detract from its overall value.
Lenovo IdeaPad 530S

Lenovo IdeaPad 530S review

Lenovo IdeaPad 530S review

Lenovo brings a quality feel, a great keyboard and touchpad, and a thin and light chassis to the budget 15.6-inch notebook market. Performance is good, but the colorless display and relatively poor battery life hold it back from being a real hit.

Acer Predator Helios 500 review

Acer Predator Helios 500 review

The Predator Helios 500 is a machine that calls to gamers. With a high refresh rate display, overclockable hardware, and great gaming performance, the Helios 500 holds no punches. If you’re fine lugging around nine pounds of gamer style, this just might be the gaming laptop you’ve been looking for.

Samsung CF791 ultrawide curved gaming monitor review

Samsung CF791 ultrawide curved gaming monitor review

With features like quantum dots, a massive 1440p display, and a deep curve, the Samsung CF791 aims to impress. Getting a price cut down to $750, this ultrawide monitor is an even sweeter deal. But even with a discount, it's an expensive monitor to invest in. Is it really worth it?

Dell XPS 15 9570 review

Dell XPS 15 9570 review

Not everyone needs the power that a laptop like the Dell XPS 15 provides. It comes with a large 15-inch screen, discrete GPU, and six-core processor -- all in a sleek, thin laptop. If you need a computer that can handle the heavy workload you use every day, the XPS 15 just might be the best option you can get.

Dell P2715Q review

Dell P2715Q review

Dell's P2715Q was its first real effort at crafting a modern 4K display and it worked wonders. We thought it looked fantastic when it was first released and it still looks good today. The drab bezels and frame didn't look great at launch and they haven't aged well, but in the competitive 4K space, this monitor still holds up.

Eve Technology Eve V review

Eve Technology Eve V review

Our Eve V review looks at a crowdsourced detachable tablet that checks some boxes for its backers, but a few sore spots keep it from becoming a true competitor. Perhaps the biggest question about the notebook is whether Eve Technology can deliver on time and provide support for the life of the machine.

Our Asus NovaGo review takes a first look at one the first Qualcomm-powered PCs. It can last 22 hours and has LTE, yet pricing starts at just $600.

Microsoft Surface Laptop review

Microsoft Surface Laptop review

Microsoft is known for its 2-in-1 devices like the Surface Go or Surface Pro, but it also has a traditional laptop. Now that you can usually pick it up at a significant discount, how does the Surface Laptop hold up nearly a year after its release? We run it through its paces to see if it's worth the money.

HP DreamColor Z27X G2 Studio Monitor review

HP DreamColor Z27X G2 Studio Monitor review

What videographers, animators, and photographers need from a monitor is different from the rest of us. We tested the second generation of the HP DreamColor Z27X to see if it lived up to the hype. If you want 4K or ultrawide, you’ll have to look elsewhere, but this monitor is more about precision.
Acer Aspire E 15 Review

Acer Aspire E 15 review

Acer Aspire E 15 review

Can a $600 laptop be good? In the past we'd say no, but it's a different story today. The Acer Aspire E 15 is intended for people who want value and don’t care about a skinny chassis. So, does it have what bargain hunters are looking for or is it a compromise not worth making?

Lenovo ThinkPad T480s review

Lenovo ThinkPad T480s review

The Lenovo ThinkPad T480s no longer occupies an important niche in today’s increasingly competitive notebook market. It’s solidly built, but its performance, battery life, and display don’t stand out against the thinner and lighter ThinkPad X1 Carbon.
Asus ZenBook S review

Asus ZenBook S review

Asus ZenBook S review

Asus has designed and built a little jewel of a notebook. It looks great, feels solid in the hand, and incorporates a few thoughtful design touches that elevate it from merely pedestrian to premiere. It’s not perfect, but it comes as close as any truly thin and light notebook has managed.

Monoprice Maker Select Mini V2 review

Monoprice’s original Maker Select Mini 3D printer was a huge hit with the 3D printing community, and the second generation brings some small but important improvements to the table.

Acer Spin 5 review

Acer Spin 5 review

Acer’s Spin 5 is a well-built and well-performing midrange 2-in-1 with solid battery life, a good keyboard, and a relatively svelte chassis. Alexa joins Cortana in providing digital assistance, although her features are limited compared to other Alexa-enabled devices.

BenQ EX3501R ultrawide monitor review

BenQ EX3501R ultrawide monitor review

BenQ is known for shipping excellent displays, and that’s no different with this curved, ultrawide monster of a monitor. The hidden surprise? Its implementation of HDR, 100Hz refresh rate, and even FreeSync support. That’s right -- the EX3501R is a monitor that works as well for games as it does for work.
