Razer Blade Stealth 13 (Late 2019) hands-on review: For real

Razer Blade Stealth 13 (Late 2019) hands-on review: For real

The Razer Blade Stealth 13 has always been a capable gaming machine, but Razer is back in 2019 with not one, but three new 13-inch Stealth laptops. With a model featuring Intel Iris Plus graphics, as well as an option the GTX 1650 graphics card, Razer is taking the Stealth lineup places it has never gone before.

Surface Pro X hands-on review: The Surface I’ve always wanted

Microsoft has announced the Surface Pro X, the most advanced Surface device ever made. Armed with a custom ARM processor and a slim design, the Surface Pro X feels like the modern Surface I've always wanted. Look out iPad Pro, you have some serious competition.

Asus ZenBook 15 UX534 review: Smaller, not better

Asus ZenBook 15 UX534 review: Smaller, not better

The Asus ZenBook 15 UX534 is the company's latest to leverage tiny bezels to fit a larger display into a smaller chassis. It offers fast quad-core Intel 8th-gen CPU performance and solid casual gaming thanks to an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 CPU. But, battery life is disappointing and the display is average.

Dell XPS 13 (7390) review: A tiny, insanely powerful laptop

Dell XPS 13 (7390) review: A tiny, insanely powerful laptop

Dell’s latest XPS 13 may look the same as the prior generation model that it succeeds, but this latest update makes this stellar laptop even more powerful. With new Comet Lake processors at the helm, the XPS 13 now supports the option for up to a six-core processors.
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 review: So metal

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4 review: So metal

Lenovo mixed things up with the ThinkPad X1 Yoga Gen 4, swapping out the usual magnesium alloy and carbon fiber chassis with aluminum. That makes the 360-degree 2-in-1 not only robust on paper thanks to its MIL-STD-810g testing, but also solid in hand. And it's still a ThinkPad on the inside.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: Left behind

Microsoft Surface Pro 7 review: Left behind

At Microsoft's annual Surface event, it launched a brand new, Surface Pro 7, with a couple of small updates to the highly popular 2-in-1.
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 review

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 review: A new era for XPS

Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 7390 review: A new era for XPS

Ice Lake has been years in the coming, and the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 is the first to use Intel's 10nm processors. The device has been completely revamped, now showing off a brand-new design, including a new keyboard and taller screen. This is a new direction for Dell's XPS line-up.
Acer Swift 3 (2019)

Acer Swift 3 (2019) review

Acer Swift 3 (2019) review

The Acer Swift 3 is a tweener laptop that’s not quite budget and not quite premium – and it feels and performs accordingly. It manages to hold its own, though, thanks to its discrete GPU that gives it some entry-level gaming and creative chops.
dell inspiron 13 7000 2 in 1 black edition review 02

Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition review

Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition review

Dell's Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 Black Edition is aimed directly at laptop buyers who would love an XPS 13 2-in-1 but don't have the budget. It looks to offer a build quality, aesthetic, performance, and configuration that rivals the best at a significantly lower price. Did Dell succeed in its objectives?
Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 review

Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 review: The DeLorean of laptops

Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1 review: The DeLorean of laptops

Dell’s Latitude 7400 2-in-1 is the world’s smallest 360-degree convertible with a 14-inch display. It’s made for business users, but consumers with fat wallets will like its features and battery life – and they won’t have to sacrifice performance along the way.
Microsoft Surface Neo

Microsoft Surface Neo hands-on review: Touch the future

Microsoft Surface Neo hands-on review: Touch the future

The Microsoft Surface Neo is a new dual-screen laptop that envisions a new path of mobile PCs. Instead of a physical keyboard, it has two screens that fold together like a book. The bottom half can be used with a small accessory keyboard. It can also be held as a tablet, like a book, and more.

Asus ZenBook Pro Duo review: The best dual-screen laptop yet

Asus ZenBook Pro Duo review: The best dual-screen laptop yet

The ZenBook Pro Duo, with its second screen built right into the keyboard, is one of the most innovative laptops ever made. But is it actually a good laptop? Despite some flaws, the ZenBook Pro Duo manages to be far more than just a gimmick.

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review

Lenovo ThinkBook 13s review

The Lenovo ThinkBook 13s is intended to provide small and medium business users with just enough business features to woo them away from competing consumer offerings. Unfortunately, we don’t think it offers enough.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 review: Pure class

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 7 review: Pure class

The 7th-gen Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon makes a number of changes to its predecessor. It's thinner and lighter, which brings some compromises in the keyboard and battery life, and it offers a wider range of displays including an excellent 4K option. Overall it's a solid update to an already great laptop.
Acer TravelMate P6

Acer TravelMate P6 review: Economy class

Acer TravelMate P6 review: Economy class

The Acer TravelMate P6 is light and offers an entry-level discrete GPU if you need on, but otherwise it’s short on what many business users demand. It doesn’t feel robust, and it doesn’t last long enough on a single charge of its battery.

Apple MacBook 12-inch review: Just buy the Air

Apple MacBook 12-inch review: Just buy the Air

At $1,300, the 12-inch MacBook isn't cheap. With just one USB-C port and a lower-powered processor, the MacBook doesn't look like it has a lot to offer. However, do its multiple color options, tiny frame, and high-end design make it worth the price? We take it up against its competitors to see where it stands.

HP Omen X 2S gaming laptop review: The Nintendo DS of laptops

HP Omen X 2S gaming laptop review: The Nintendo DS of laptops

Gaming laptops have gotten so good, that manufacturers have resorted to some surprising experimentation to stand out from the crowd. The HP Omen X 2S does that with a second screen, built right into the keyboard deck of the laptop. Is it useful? Is it just a gimmick?
Lenovo Yoga C940

Lenovo Yoga C940 hands-on review

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 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.

Asus ProArt StudioBook Pro X hands-on review

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: A $400 laptop that doesn’t suck

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.

Asus ChromeBook Flip C434 review

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.

Samsung Galaxy Book S hands-on review

Samsung Galaxy Book S hands-on review

Samsung’s successor to the Galaxy Book 2 is the Galaxy Book S, a super lightweight Windows laptop that’s powered by a Qualcomm processor. While we haven’t been impressed by Qualcomm-powered Windows laptops so far, the chip used here might change things for the better.
Acer Swift 7 review

Acer Swift 7 (2019) 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 13 (2019) review

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.
Asus Zephyrus M GU502GV review

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

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

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.

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 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

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

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

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

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.
