Asus Zephyrus M GU502GV review

Asus Zephyrus M GU502GV review

Asus’ Zephyrus M GU502GV is a mid-range gaming laptop that looks like it could be your everyday machine. Its ninth-generation Core i7 processor and RTX 2060 graphics chip are promising on paper, but odd choices hold the laptop back. Read our full Asus Zephyrus GU502GV review.
Asus ZenBook S13

Asus ZenBook S13 UX392 review

The Asus ZenBook S13 is one of the smallest 14-inch class laptops around, and it’s the “world’s slimmest laptop with MX150 graphics.” That’s not just hyperbole – this is a strong performer in a tiny package. Battery life is a bit of a letdown, however.
Lenovo IdeaPad S940 review

Lenovo IdeaPad S940 review

The Lenovo IdeaPad S940 is a well-built laptop that leverages its tiny bezels to good effect. It’s very small, very thin, and has a great display, but beware the cost in lowered performance and battery life.
2019 Razer Blade Pro 17

Razer Blade Pro 17 (2019) review

The Razer Blade Pro 17 might have “pro” in the name, but it’s a powerhouse gaming laptop made with performance aimed right at gamers. Here’s how this redesigned Razer flagship fares in its 2019 redesign.
acer swift 3 13 2019 review acerswift3132019 6

Acer Swift 3 13 (2019) review

Acer’s 13-inch version of the Swift 3 clamshell laptop doesn’t offer much to distinguish itself from a very crowded market. It’s not a faster, cheaper, better-built, or more attractive option than better laptops like the Asus ZenBook 13 and Dell XPS 13.
hp spectre x360 15 amoled review 6

HP Spectre x360 15 AMOLED review

OLED laptops are back, and the 15-inch Spectre x360 is the first we've given a full review. It looks just as stunning as before, and it makes for one of the most visually appealing displays we've ever seen in a laptop. Does it make this already-great 2-in-1 even better?
Lenovo ThinkPad X390 review

Lenovo ThinkPad X390 review

The ThinkPad X390 is Lenovo’s entry into the 13-inch laptop competition, and it succeeds in bringing the modern ThinkPad experience to a smaller chassis. It’s just as well-built, secure, and aesthetically iconic as always, only smaller.

Alienware m15 R2 hands-on review

The Alienware m15 has received a significant overhaul in its second generation. With a design aesthetic carried over from the Area-51m, the m15 R2 entrenches this new direction for Alienware’s brand. We went hands-on.
HP Chromebook 14 Review

HP Chromebook 14 Review

The HP Chromebook 14 is a budget Chrome OS laptop that cuts its price in part by choosing AMD over Intel and by using plastic instead of metal. The results are decidedly mixed, with good but not great performance, and disappointing battery life.
Surface Laptop 2 Review

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 review

People don’t usually buy laptops right when they come out, which begs the question: How does a popular machine like the Surface Laptop 2 hold up six months later? Our retrospective review considers how small design mishaps can turn into large mistakes down the road.
asus rog zephyrus s gx502 review  2

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX502 hands-on review

Asus has revamped its lineup of gaming laptops, ranging from budget-friendly options to high-powered behemoths. Near the top of the range is the ROG Zephyrus S GX502, sporting a 240Hz refresh rate display, a new chassis, and a 9th-gen Core i7 Intel processor.
huawei matebook x pro 2019 review huawe feat

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) review

There's a new Huawei MateBook X Pro in 2019, building off the success of last year's iteration. What’s new? Well, the graphics card, the processor, and the pricing. And not all of these work out in its favor, despite how well the original design holds up.
Acer Chromebook 514 review

Acer Chromebook 514 review

Acer’s Chromebook 514 is a workhorse laptop that doesn’t even try to show off with a glitzy design or 2-in-1 functionality. It’s very well-built, adequately equipped for productive performance, and lasts a long time on a charge – making it worth its $500 price.
alienware area-51m review

Alienware Area-51m review

The Alienware Area-51m is a massive gaming laptop that paves a new path forward for the brand. While it offers many old-school features, it also brings a new look and design philosophy that gamers will love. Our Area-51M review dives into the guts of this portable battlestation.
MSI GS75 Stealth

MSI GS75 Stealth review

The MSI GS65 made a big splash at its release. It was impossibly thin yet impressively powerful. MSI followed it up in 2019 with a 17-inch version, but the larger size isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Can the GS75 Stealth stand out in a sea of thin-and-light gaming laptops?
lenovo legion y740 15 review

Lenovo Legion Y740 15-inch review

The successor to the Legion Y730, the 15-inch Legion Y740 now packs in the power of the RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics card and an attractive looking design and package for everything a gamer would need to enjoy all the latest hit titles.
HP Spectre x360 15 2019 review

HP Spectre x360 15 (2019) review

HP’s 2019 Spectre x360 15 brings this massive 2-in-1 up to speed, literally. It now equips the same six-core Intel CPU as the rest of the 15-inch field, along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q for some 1080p gaming.
Acer Predator Triton 500 review

Acer Predator Triton 500 review

Nvidia’s new RTX 2080 Max-Q is the fastest GPU you’ll find in any laptop, but it usually comes at a steep price. Acer’s Predator Triton 500, starting at $2,500, makes it a little more affordable. But what must you sacrifice in the name of performance? Less than you might think.
Lenovo Legion Y740 review

Lenovo Legion Y740 review

Gamers looking for an ultra-powerful laptop have a lot of choices. In 2019, a lot of laptops in the $2,000 range can offer up big power for the price, including with Nvidia’s latest RTX 20- series GPU. We’ve seen the Razer Blade, and the ROG Zephyrus GX701 so far, but Lenovo too has an option.
HP Spectre x360 13 (late 2018)

HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) review

HP’s updated Spectre x360 13 is dubbed the “gem-cut” for a reason. It looks like a gem cutter went to work on the chassis, and its many angles catch the light and look great. It’s also fast, well-built, and lasts a long time on a single charge. Check out our full HP Spectre x360 13-inch review.
Acer Swift 5 (2019) review

Acer Swift 5 (2019) review

The 2019 Swift 5 is the lightest 15-inch laptop around, but Acer had to cut some things to get there. The biggest loser is battery life, where too little capacity cuts longevity. Performance is good, durability is decent, but overall the focus on weight forces an important compromise.
Huawei MateBook 14 hands-on

Huawei MateBook 14 hands-on review

When you think of Huawei you might think of phones, but the company also has some interesting Windows devices. Huawei is now launching the new MateBook 14. It sits in between the MateBook X and MateBook D series and promises premium design at an affordable price.
Asus ROG Zephyrus S (GX701) review

Asus ROG Zephyrus S (GX701) review

RTX graphics have finally made it to gaming laptops, and the first we've tested is the new Zephyrus S. Now with a 17-inch display and those powerful graphics inside, the Zephyrus' unique design has some additional power for smooth gaming. The downsides of the keyboard design, however, remain.
lg gram 17 review feat

LG Gram 17 review

17-inch laptops have become a rarity, and the ones that are out there are heavy, thick, ugly, or primarily for gaming. Enter the LG Gram 17. Continuing the trend of crafting some of the lightest laptops around, LG is back at it in 2019 with the thinnest and lightest 17-inch laptop ever.
Lenovo Yoga C630 review

Lenovo Yoga C630 review

Lenovo’s Yoga C630 is a member of the second wave of Windows 10 on ARM laptops built around Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850 system-on-chip. The Yoga lasts long on a charge and it’s a delightfully designed and well-built laptop, but it’s still too slow for more than basic tasks.

Huawei MateBook 13 review

Huawei’s MateBook 13 is a MacBook Air competitor, through and through. But with an attractive price point, a beautiful 3:2 display, and the option for discrete graphics, can the MateBook 13 rise above the similarities to Apple’s laptops? In some ways, yes. In others, it has a long way to go.
LG Gram 14

LG Gram 14 2-in-1 review

The LG Gram 14 2-in-1 aims to be very light for a laptop that converts to a tablet. And it is. But it doesn’t skimp on the battery, and so it lasts an incredibly long time on a charge, and it doesn’t compromise performance with a low-power CPU.
Lenovo Yoga S940 review

Lenovo Yoga S940 hands-on review

Lenovo’s Yoga S940, which debuted at CES 2019, has a few tricks up its sleeve. By using an inverted notch above the screen and curved glass along the edges of the display, the Yoga S940 creates subtle fair and sets a new standard for laptop elegance. Can those design tweaks make Lenovo’s latest a winner?
Acer Swift 7 2019

Acer Swift 7 hands-on review

The Acer Swift 7 is among the world’s thinnest laptops, but it hasn’t received the fanfare that its super-slim profile seems to deserve. The price tag has proved a problem, and while new model shown at CES 2019 is better than ever before, expense remains an obstacle.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga

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

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?
HP Omen 15 review

HP Omen 15 (2019) hands-on review

Asus Zenbook 15 UX533FN

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.
razer blade stealth 2019

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?
