Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review: A beautiful miss

Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 review: A beautiful miss

The Surface Laptop 3 now comes in a 15-inch model, which looks quite similar to what you get with the 13-inch version. But new here is a new all-aluminum finish and a custom AMD Ryzen processor. Can Microsoft's new clamshell compete with laptops like the Dell XPS 15 and MacBook Pro 16?

HP 34f ultrawide monitor review: Premium for less

Large, curved screens have been a feature of high-end displays, but HP's 34f proves you can get a premium experience at an affordable price. This monitor is a great option for shoppers looking for a vibrant screen for work or home use.

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.

Microsoft HoloLens 2 hands-on review: The future on your face

Microsoft HoloLens 2 hands-on review: The future on your face

The HoloLens 2 isn't meant for your home, but that's what makes it so futuristic. The headset is built for "collaborative visualization" that's more complete and intense than any home AR or VR headset. And importantly, the HoloLens 2 fixes the flaws of its predecessor.

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: 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.

HP 27f 4K monitor review: Crisp images without the niceties

HP 27f 4K monitor review: Crisp images without the niceties

These days, 4K monitors keep getting more affordable, but some make that possible via significant compromises. The 2019 refresh of the HP 27f 4K offers some decent image quality to back up its resolution, but it's missing a few key features that hold it back from greatness.

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.
Alienware Aurora R8

Alienware Aurora R8 review: Tower of power

Alienware Aurora R8 review: Tower of power

Alienware shows that not all gaming rigs have to be expensive. Packing in ray tracing capable RTX graphics and Intel’s 9th-Generation processor, the Aurora R8 is a PC that appeals to demanding gamers, but at a surprisingly reasonable price compared to competitors on the market.
A man using the ThinkPad Carbon X1.

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.

AOPEN 32HC1QUR monitor review

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 hands-on review

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 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.
ProArt StudioBook Pro X

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

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.

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

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 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 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 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 (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.

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.

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 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.
