ASUS Transformer AiO is a world’s first: Windows 8/Android hybrid madness

At Mobile World Congress last month we had a magical experience with ASUS that noone will ever forget - but one device we saw seems to have been looked over until now: the ASUS Transformer AiO. This device was shown, but not exactly detailed - this week we're learning why. Apparently this machine - bear with me now - is both a Windows 8 desktop and an Android tablet - both running separate processors.

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP ENVY 23 TouchSmart Review

HP dove into the Windows 8 ecosystem without hesitation, and the results of that effort are tons of new laptops and desktop computers, some of which are the company’s new ENVY TouchSmart all-in-one series of Windows 8 machines, which we first heard about back in September. They have an entry-level 20-inch model, as well as a 23-inch variant that we took for a spin. It has a fast quad-core processor, quick graphics, a lot of system memory, and a huge hard drive, not to mention the 1080p touchscreen. It’ll cost you, though: around $1,700 for this particular build, but the ENVY 23 TouchSmart (model d060qd) definitely has all the specs to make anyone happy. However, is it right for everyone? Let’s find out.

Acer Predator AG3620 Review

Acer Predator AG3620 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the new Acer Predator AG3260 gaming PC. While “gaming PC” and “Acer” may not be two terms you immediately associate with one another, Acer has impressed in the past, and is now looking to wow consumers with its Predator G series of computers. In fact, we've reviewed a computer that's quite similar to this one before, only now the Predator is back with Windows 8 and some slightly different hardware. The problem with building a gaming rig is still the same as always, though: PC gamers can be a fickle bunch, with the most hardcore not paying any attention to pre-built machines and instead building their own rigs. That isn't an option for everyone, so can the Predator AG3620 offer enough to be worthy of those gamers' dollars? Read on to find out.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC makes family gaming gigantic

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC makes family gaming gigantic

You may have read the word "Tablet" in the title of this post, but this unit from Lenovo is actually called a "Table" because of its massiveness. This is the Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC, a machine that "can lie flat on any surface" with its 27-inch display for use by two or more people at once - perfect for multi-player games. This machine also works as a desktop machine, but because of the unique nature included in the gaming angle on this beast, Lenovo's created a new word for the cross-over between physical and digital interaction: "phygital".

Acer Aspire 7600U Review

Acer Aspire 7600U Review

All-in-one PCs have always seemed a little weird, at least to me. They don't take up as much space as a traditional computer with a tower and a monitor, but they're not exactly portable. They also tend to be pretty expensive, though the hardware hidden away behind the screen isn't always the best. With the new Acer Aspire 7600U, things get even more strange, with this particular all-in-one sporting a 27-inch touchscreen to go along with Windows 8, which comes installed from the get-go. It's certainly impressive from a design perspective, but can the hardware inside keep the warm and fuzzy feelings going, or is this PC a little too underwhelming to justify it's expensive price tag? Read on to find out.
