AMD gamers with monitor envy can now experience some of the high-end monitor features experienced by G-Sync gamers with the AOPEN 32HC1QUR. This FreeSync gaming monitor supports fast refresh rates and response times, a curved panel for immersive gaming, and an affordable price tag.
Asus Chakram gaming mouse

Asus Chakram gaming mouse hands-on review

Joysticks might be the odd-one out in typical gaming controllers, but not with the Asus Chakram. It's a gaming mouse with a dual-axis joystick built into it, and it's a bizarre little rodent that few will find perfect for them. But for those that do, it could be a great addition to their gaming arsenal.
Lenovo Yoga C940

Lenovo Yoga C940 hands-on review

Lenovo's Yoga C940 might sport a new, 10th-generation Ice Lake CPU in its 14-inch model, but it's small quality of life improvements that better define this new generation 2-in-1. Better audio, a redesigned hinge, Intel Athena certification, and a small bump to help you open the lid, all make it just that bit better.
Asus StudioBook One

Asus ProArt StudioBook One hands-on review

Asus has broken new ground with its ProArt StudioBook One. It packs a fullsize Nvidia Quadro RTX6000 in its lid, making it the most graphically powerful laptop ever made. It's more powerful than most high-end desktops. To keep that and its Core i9 CPU cool, it has a unique cooling solution too.
ProArt StudioBook Pro X

Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro X hands-on review

The Asus ProArt StudioBook range targets an entirely new sector of the market: creative professionals. While big power is great for those who need to render and compute, extra functionality is also a boon. That's where the StudioBook Pro X offers some exciting potential, with a second screen in the touchpad.
acer aspire 5 2019 review acerasoure5

Acer Aspire 5 (2019) review: A $400 laptop that doesn’t suck

The 2019 Acer Aspire 5 redeems itself by eliminating many of the worst traits of its previous version. It provides solid performance, a decent build, and great battery life for a very low price. It even trims some of the fat in the process.
edge dev update moves closer to chrome chromium

Microsoft Chromium Edge hands-on review: A first look at the beta release

We recently installed one of the preview versions of Microsoft's new Chromium-based Edge browser, and there's now a lot that makes it feel Chrome, but there are also some similarities to the old Edge. So, is the new Chromium Edge the best browser ever? Here's a hands-on look.
Asus Chromebook Flip C434

Asus ChromeBook Flip C434 review

The Asus Chromebook Flip C434 is a very well-built and attractive laptop for its price. It’s more than fast enough for Chrome OS, has a great keyboard and touchpad, and it offers all-day battery life. It’s a little expensive overall, but it’s worth it.
Acer Swift 7 review

Acer Swift 7 (2019) review

Acer’s 2019 Swift 7 fixes a great deal of what was wrong with the 2018 version, while being almost as thin and both smaller and lighter. In particular, the touchpad was fixed and is now excellent. Limited power, though, remains a concern.
HP Envy Curved 34

HP Envy Curved All-in-One 34 review

If you think all PC workstations are doomed to the same boring design, be prepared to be blown away by HP’s gorgeous Envy Curved AIO 34. This all-in-one machine combines modern silicon options with gorgeous mid-century modern aesthetics, making it a focal point of any desk.
dell 75 4k interactive touch monitor c7520qt review feat

Dell 75 4K Interactive Touch Monitor C7520QT hands-on review

At $6,000, the Dell 75 4K Interactive Touch Monitor is an expensive display that might not be for everyone, but it will replace the boring whiteboard in your office and change your meetings.
hp envy 13 review 2019 feat

HP Envy 13 (2019) review

The HP Envy 13 seeks to bring much of the quality, performance, and good looks of the company’s Spectre line at reduced prices. And that’s exactly what it does, along with a lovely 4K display and some light gaming chops.
Microsoft Pro Intellimouse review

Microsoft’s Pro IntelliMouse goes all-in on retro design, for better or worse

Microsoft's Pro Intellimouse attempts to fuse the comfort and simplicity of a professional mouse with the extreme responsiveness of a gaming mouse. It's a successful effort, but not without sacrifices.
Predator Orion 3000 review

Acer Predator Orion 3000 review

Acer’s Predator Orion 3000 delivers the kind of gaming performance that’s more typical of larger desktop towers. Equipped with Intel’s 9th-Gen processor and Nvidia’s RTX 2080 graphics, the Orion 3000 delivers solid gaming performance in a compact and stylish case design.
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.
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.
asus proart pa90 review asusproart 4

Asus ProArt PA90 review

Because of its compact size, the Asus ProArt PA90 makes use of an innovative motorized lid design to keep its liquid-cooled 9th-gen Intel Core i9 processor and Nvidia Quadro graphics inside cool. But this isn’t just a design gimmick – the ProArt PA90 is a very capable workstation designed for creatives.
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?
acer conceptd nvidia quadro workstation computex 2019 concept 7

The Acer ConceptD laptops bring Nvidia Quadro workstation graphics to the masses

At Computex 2019, Acer revealed a handful of new powerful laptops in its ConceptD line. The ConceptD 5, 7, and 9 are all made with creatives in mind, each with varying degrees of power and portability. Most importantly, they feature the option for Nvidia's new Quadro graphics, which are tailor-made for 3D rendering and graphics.

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.
HP Tango X review

HP Tango X review

Can a printer look good enough to reside in your living room? The Tango X does. With its fabric cover, it looks somewhat like a large, fabric-covered coffee-table book. But looks aren't everything -- it also prints quite well and is incredibly easy to set up thanks to HP's Smart app.
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.
microsoft surface hub 2s review surfacehub2 handson feat

Microsoft Surface Hub 2S hands-on review

Slim, light, and intuitive, the new Microsoft Surface Hub 2S wants to change the way you collaborate at work. That’s a lofty goal, but as our Surface Hub 2S hands-on review details, it’s one this device seems well equipped to achieve. Just don’t hope to buy one for your home.
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.
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.
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.
acer predator xb3 review gaming monitor feat

Acer Predator XB3 review

The $1,300 Predator XB3 isn’t for the faint of heart. But if you have a system that can push over 100 frames per second at 4K screen resolution, this monster of a monitor might be the perfect match for your overpowered gaming rig. More than that, it’s an investment in the future of PC gaming power.
hp omen mindframe headset review  3

HP’s Omen Mindframe headset keeps your ears chill, but might leave you lukewarm

The Omen Mindframe headset uses HP's new FrostCap technology to keep ears cool during long gaming sections. While it has incredible sound and does an incredible job keeping ears cool, it forgets some of the bare essentials of a quality gaming headset.
