In our Ryzen 7 5800X3D review, we dubbed AMD's Zen 3 processor with a fat stack of cache as the "king of PC gaming."

Premium laptops have been getting thinner and lighter over the years, and one reason why is the removal of chunky ports. The svelte MacBook Air, for example, rocks just a pair of Thunderbolt / USB4 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack—no USB Type-A or Ethernet ports. Craob says 'Hold my beer' and is introducing what it...

If you even owned a laptop from over 30 years ago, it's probably long-since been retired. Laptops did actually exist in the 1980s, though, and while mainly (not solely) built for word processing chores, an owner of a Toshiba T3200SX laptop from 1989 held onto his all these years and has put it to work mining Bitcoin...

If there was a poster child for business-class laptops, it is indisputably the Lenovo ThinkPad. ThinkPad notebooks are well known for their matte-black, no-nonsense designs, but their utility in corporate and industrial settings is more than skin-deep.

Laptops as a whole have never had a great track record for repairability or upgradeability, but the situation has gotten worse in recent years. Modern ultra-portable machines often come with soldered-down memory, integrated graphics, and even non-serviceable storage. On some systems, you can't even open the casing... Read more...

17-inch laptops are becoming somewhat of a rarity these days. Every manufacturer has a couple of models in their line-up, but they don't get a ton of attention because they're typically quite bulky and harder to tote around than sleeker, smaller machines. However, the system we'll be showing you today isn't just any run-of-the-mill 17" notebook.... Read more...
