It was a year ago this month that Sony sold its VAIO PC business to investment firm Japan Industrial Partners Inc., thus signaling a likely end to the VAIO brand in the U.S., at least on computers. Is that still the case? We're not sure, though in Japan, a pair of new VAIO Z convertible laptops is launching. The... Read more...
Do you want a rugged laptop or do you prefer a thin and light notebook? Typically you had to choose between one or the other, though Panasonic is looking to change the game with its new Toughbook CF-54, a semi-rugged system that's the thinnest and lightest Toughbook in its category. So, it has that going for it, but... Read more...
Dell's new XPS 13 has been compared to Apple's MacBook Air because of its thin stature and overall aesthetic design. However, it's not just the operating system and spec sheet that separates these two laptops, there's also a big divide when it comes to in-home repair. Getting at the guts of a MacBook Air is more...

Dell has updated what it claims is the world's thinnest and lightest mobile workstation, the Precision M3800. Checking in at a svelte 0.31-0.71 (H) by 14.65 (W) by 10 (D) inches and weighing only 4.15 pounds, we won't argue that claim, though what's equally impressive is the collection of hardware and...

Lenovo's Thinkpad 540 is a beast, but you didn't need us to tell you that. This professional-caliber laptop is probably more powerful than your average desktop PC. And if its price doesn't tip you off to the fact that this laptop is sporting some serious hardware—$1,600 for Lenovo's "ready to ship" iteration of the laptop; starting... Read more...
It's official, folks -- we can finally stop arguing over which is the superior game console, the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One. Quite frankly, it's a pointless debate, and it took a self-taught engineer to put the argument to rest, which he did by combining both game systems into a 22-inch laptop. Ladies and gentlemen...

First it was the floppy drive that, for the most part, has gone the way of the dodo bird, and then the optical drive, which is now the exception instead of the rule on laptop devices. Are I/O ports next? The current rumor is that Apple is building a brand new MacBook Air model that's going to be so thin, it won't have... Read more...
Over the past several years, Lenovo has been aggressively targeting PC gamers, who are known both for their willingness to drop serious cash on hardware and for their skepticism of mainstream brands. Lenovo inherited some of IBM’s corporate image when it took over the company’s laptop business, but winners like the Yoga line got...

A research group in the UK has found that nearly 70 percent of schools there are using tablets in the classroom. That probably won’t surprise teachers in the U.S., where Apple has already delivered more than 10 million iPads to schools. It’s easy to see why teachers and administrators favor tablets and inexpensive laptops (like Google’s Read more...
When Intel gave us an early deep-dive look at their new 14nm Broadwell Core M series processor back in August, we were hopeful that great things would be coming to ultra-light notebooks and premium 2-in-1 tablet devices. Intel's low power 14nm Tri-Gate architecture coupled with an enhanced integrated graphics... Read more...
For the past year, Intel has pursued what's known as a contra-revenue strategy in its mobile division, where product is deliberately sold at a loss to win market share and compete effectively. This has led to a huge rise in tablet shipments, but heavy losses inside Intel's mobile division. Today, the company announced... Read more...
Who says Alienware and other custom-spec builders are the only games in town when it comes to high-end mobile gaming rigs? HP has just introduced the OMEN, which is about as radical as the name implies. It's a gaming laptop that skews to the skinny side, but maintains plenty of raw horsepower underneath. NVIDIA's...

Back in late September, HP unveiled its affordable "Stream" line of Windows notebooks and tablets with expected availability in early November. Well, we're into the first week of November now, and as promised, you can hop on the web and order a Stream 11 or Stream 13 laptop with Windows 8.1 at a rock bottom price. How... Read more...
In late August, Dell Alienware took the wraps off of a radically new Area 51-branded desktop system featuring an angular case designed for maximum thermal efficiency and ergonomics.

It took some time for Google's Chromebook platform to find its footing in the market place, but now that it has, these cloud-based PCs are finally starting to hit their stride. In what turned out to be yet another solid quarter, Chromebook shipments jumped 67 percent sequentially, according to new data by ABI... Read more...
Google has a history of trying things that may or may not have long-term success in the market, and creating Chrome OS for the Chromebook was certainly one of those things. Somewhat amazingly, the Chromebook has managed to gain enough traction to hang around for future iterations, as seen with Samsung's newly revised... Read more...
Apple set the bar for thin and light notebooks when it introduced the MacBook Air several years ago, and since then, a number of Windows-based competitors have emerged.

Netvertibles, Chromebooks, and Xbox consoles turned into laptops. We've seen all of that, but a 3D-printed laptop huddled around a Raspberry Pi? It sounds like nerd heaven, and it's now a reality. The Pi-Top is very likely the world's first 3D-pri ted, Raspberry Pi-powered laptop, and rather than just being a one-off... Read more...
