There are fast computers, and then there are FAST COMPUTERS. What you or I might consider fast for a consumer is very different than the needs of an architect, graphic designer, game designer, or any other processor-intensive workload. Lenovo and AMD have upgraded the ThinkStation P620 with the speedy and vaguely threateningly-named AMD Ryzen Threadripper Pro Processor, putting absolutely top of the line power into one desktop.
Due to the global pandemic, those of us who have been unexpectedly thrust into working from home have had to figure out how to get our work done while sheltering in place. We wanted to share some of the things that have helped us stay productive and more-or-less content since we began physically distancing ourselves from our loved ones and friends who live outside of our homes.
Complete with an all-new design and a host of upgrades that users of the previous NVIDIA Shield, Nvidia’s new SHIELD TV is faster, smarter, and even more portable. I’ve had my hands on one for the past few weeks, and it’s becoming one of my favorite streaming devices.
We’re headed into the fall, which means major refreshed lineups of all kinds of tech in time for the holiday season. Dell and Alienware are here to capture your imagination and your wallet with all-new XPS, Inspiron, Alienware, and Dell G devices!
I work in a male-dominated field, so I understand the need for more women in STEM. So does the Global Semiconductor Alliance, and they’re rolling out a Women’s Leadership Initiative to help encourage more women to get involved in science and technology.
If you read my Huawei MateBook 13 review, you’ll know that I am a huge fan of the 3:2 aspect ratio on a laptop’s screen. If you are, too (or even if you’re just curious about it), you’ll want to check out the updated MateBook X Pro and the brand new MateBook 14.
Last year we took a look at the MateBook X Pro, Huawei’s answer to the MacBook Pro for PC users. Now Huawei is taking on the MacBook Air with their Huawei MateBook 13. You’ll be intrigued by its speed, build quality, comfortable keyboard and touchpad, and the narrow bezels on the touchscreen. But there’s even more to like.
If you’ve read my previous review about the NVIDIA SHIELD, then you know how much I love it. The ability to watch YouTube, DirecTV Now, HBO, Netflix, as well as play games, makes it a must-have device not just in my home but also when I travel.
If you are serious about cord-cutting, then I’m sure you’ve heard of Fire Stick and Roku, but let me just put it to you as simple as it can be: None of them can hold a candle to the NVIDIA Shield TV.
Sometimes shopping at the last-minute can be a good thing. You get your pick of all of the price cuts, and in many cases you find gifts that you would’ve never thought of that will be useful for the new year. Here are a few items that I think that you should check out if you are still shopping for last-minute gifts.
It’s not too late to get some shopping done for the holiday gear courtesy of Logitech, so why not check out a few of my own personal favorite accessories from the company?
Cord cutting just got easier with the Tablo Dual OTA DVR, an Over-The-Air DVR that allows you to stream or record two free HD broadcast channels at once. With 64GB built-in storage and Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, you can get streaming right out of the box; all you need is an antenna.
Acer has been very, very busy at IFA 2017. They announced quite the lineup of products, so if you use anything remotely electronic there’s probably something there for you. (And if you don’t use anything electronic, please let me know in the comments how and why you’re reading this!)
Last year, I stumbled upon the Hybrx PC from Azpen Innovation. It’s similar to the Jide Ultratablet I reviewed, but it’s more like a laptop; the price was only $89, so I put money down on what would turn out to be the first product and last Kickstarter product I will ever support, due to the lack of support.
This is a sponsored post on behalf of Lenovo. All opinions are mine. Judie reviewed the Android version of the Lenovo Yoga Book last month and loved it. She just finished using it while covering CES 2017 and has enjoyed it so much that I just ordered one. That, however, is not the only Lenovo product worthy of note.
It seems like it was just yesterday we were raving over Tablo’s Over-The-Air, antenna enabled DVR system, and after much success, the company plans on adding to their brand with a few more options the cord-cutting community. Announced at CES 2017 are three products from Tablo, including their Android-based Software DVR system, a LIVE “stick”, and new CLOUD-enabled DVR storage.
MAINGEAR hits the nail on the head with their new VYBE PC, a fantastic budget-friendly VR-capable gaming PC. Combining an Intel Core processor with NVIDIA’s new GeForce GTX 1060 and 8GB of HyperX Fury RAM, the VYBE is capable of playing all of the latest graphics intensive games in virtual reality. MAINGEAR’s VYBE Tuned for VR starts at $999.
The idea of owning a capable gaming system that isn’t extremely expensive or overly large may seem like a pipe dream, but the Alienware Alpha R2 defies the typical gaming desktop stereotype. At ~7.7″ square by ~2.2″ tall and with a starting weight of 4 pounds (including power brick), the Alpha R2 is portable, affordable, and best of all capable.
I’ve been a fan of Android since the beginning. While the phone experience has been solid lately, the tablet experience hasn’t been. While I thought it was ok, it really wasn’t. Jide has gone a long way to help this out with their version of Android, titled RemixOS with the Jide Ultra Tablet. It’s a winner.
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.
Today Lenovo is introducing two new convertible Windows 10 PCs, the YOGA 51o and the YOGA 710, along with the affordable ideapad MIIX 310 a 2-in-1 detachable tablet. All of the new devices sport better battery life, versatility, and portability. YOGA 510 14″ and 15″ The YOGA 510 14″ and 15″ boast more than 50% improved battery life. The 510 has a new design, lighter weight, and it delivers up to 8.5 hours battery life. Similar to the YOGA 710,…
