One of the greatest things about technology is how swiftly features trickle down from “whoa, computers can do that?” to “all computers have that”. Touchscreens are a perfect example; they’ve gone from being expensive and poorly implemented to a must-have in any high-end laptop, and the new HP Spectre x360 15″ is taking full advantage!
HP has just issued a recall for Lithium-ion batteries used in various HP notebook computers and mobile workstations; the lithium-ion batteries can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards. If you have one of the 50,000* affected HP laptop or mobile workstation listed below, be sure to follow up.
Dell has reimagined their popular XPS 13 laptop and it’s more svelte than ever before. To that effect, Dell claims that it’s now the world’s smallest 13-inch laptop. It manages to do this by fitting a 13-inch InfinityEdge display inside an 11 inch frame. Weighing in at just 2.68 lbs, the new XPS 13 for 2018 is indeed smaller, 30% thinner, and…
Lenovo makes what I sometimes joke are the Toyota of computer —they aren’t always flashy, but they are solid workhorses that can and will handle anything you toss their way. 2018 is bringing some new updates for the Lenovo ThinkPad lines, and whether you need a ThinkPad T, X, or L, they’ve got you covered with an impressively updated lineup!
A few years ago it looked like the laptop was dying. Instead, a combination of bigger phones and touchscreen computers have pushed new and better innovations into the laptop market, and Samsung is at the forefront of these with their newest additions the Notebook 9 line!
How much technology can $230 buy you? It’s not enough for an iPad, certainly not enough for an iPhone, and will maybe get you a low-end Chromebook. If you’re willing to look beyond the big brands, though, E Fun offers a hidden gem in the form of the Nextbook Flexx 11A.
If you want to know more about what’s coming up for Acer, be sure to watch their global press conference. It is streaming now, and you’ll be able to watch it in full after the event.
The MacBook Air may not have been the first ultra-portable, but within a few years, it set a standard upon which other thin and light notebooks were judged. One thing it has never been, however, is cheap. Plenty of people would like a light notebook, but simply can’t afford it.
ASUS has announced the world’s lightest 14 inch business notebook. Coming in at only 2.31lbs, the B9440 will be available in May 2017 and will retail for $999. Not only is the notebook light, but it also takes up no more of a footprint than most 13 inch notebooks.
Lenovo is making their presence felt right before the 2017 Consumer Electronic Show by announcing that they are updating their popular ThinkPad lineup. Including the new ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3, Type C docks and ThinkVision displays, there are nine laptop announcements as well as more from their flagship X1 series.

Everyone who knows me and my tech preferences know me as an Apple guy. Some say I have drank the proverbial Kool-Aid. Other than work, I have used Apple products exclusively for almost a decade. A recent review by Judie persuaded me to jump back into the world of Windows. The jump has been surprisingly good!
This is a sponsored post; all opinions are mine. Dan was telling me about taking five of his graduating seniors out to dinner the other night. Of course, they talked about the gear they needed for college; key among the items they’ll bring is a computer. I suggested he have them look at the HP Pavilion 12 x2.
Confession: I bought a fully loaded Microsoft Surface Pro 3 with the (optional) purple keyboard cover last year. But as much as I loved the idea of the 2-in-1 Surface Pro, I ultimately sent it back. Why? One of the biggest reasons was that I hated the keyboard.
The Dell XPS 13 has turned out to be such a fantastic travel laptop that I’d find myself wishing for a larger version, and the Dell XPS 15 does not disappoint. With its machined aluminum body, carbon fiber composite interior, and Gorilla Glass Infinity Edge touchscreen, the XPS 15″ manages to wedge a 15.6″ laptop into a 14″ body.
Years back, I got caught up in the UMPC — UltraMobilePC- fad. (I blame James Kendrick and his JKontheRun blog.) None of those devices lived up to their promise of a full PC in a small, touchscreen device. Fast forward, and that promise has been realized in the Microsoft Surface line of computers. microsoft, via CDW sent one to Judie;…
