Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

The Acer Predator 17 is not just a good first-shot from a relatively new gaming line, it's a darn good notebook in and of itself. This laptop is large enough to give you a full gaming experience without being so bulky you'll never move it from your desk. This laptop is also clearly a gaming machine, but doesn't look like you decided on your hardware's look when you were young and foolish. In short - this is the gaming laptop you want if you're not afraid to go big, but don't want to drop cash on just any ol' run-of-the-mill flashy gamer unit.

2016 Jaguar F-Type S Coupe manual Review

2016 Jaguar F-Type S Coupe manual Review

Jaguar's F-Type is a notoriously tail-happy car. California's rarely-wet roads are notoriously slippery in the rain. What better time, then, than the depths of winter and El Niño's finest to test the 2016 Jaguar F-Type S Coupe with its spanking new manual gearbox option?

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro Review

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro Review

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro does not have a sexy name, nor has it been the subject of extensive ad backing by the company that makes it. This computer isn't the epitome of mind-blowing uniqueness in its form or its function. There are a few problems with this notebook, but none of them have to do with the hardware. In fact, aside from the fact that this machine runs Windows 10, there's very little that I'd change in this device in order to call it the best notebook on the market today.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review for NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV

Today you're going to be able to play Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on your NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV machine. You, too, can live the glory days of the PlayStation 3 and chopping up your enemies with two-button combinations and ninja running. This game looks pretty gosh-darned good, and not just for a so-called "mobile game", as it's still called. That's just silly - this is a full-fledged release of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and you're about to chop it up.

BoomStick Review: $99 headphone upgrade

BoomStick Review: $99 headphone upgrade

For a while, it seemed like the bitrate war might prove some sort of salvation for audio quality. Turns out, though, that the average listener can't actually hear much difference beyond a certain point, and that's even if they're willing to pay for higher quality downloads and streams.

Acer Chromebook R11 Review: portable and foldable

Back in September, Acer announced among other things, an update to their Chromebook line. One of the biggest changes to the line was the convertible design of the new Chromebook R11. I've had my hands on one for a little while now, and it's time to give you a closer look at it.

2016 McLaren 650S Spider Review

2016 McLaren 650S Spider Review

I thought I knew what visceral meant. I also thought I'd never get used to the attention you draw, pulling up in a supercar. The McLaren 650S Spider educated me on both, first by smearing my body into a paste as it slammed me back against the seat with its fist of acceleration, and second with a jolt of unexpected patriotism.

Lenovo ideapad Y700 Review: a powerful (and heavy) gaming laptop

Lenovo has a new gaming laptop that obviously follows in the footsteps of its Y50 and other past gaming machines, but with updated features and hardware to tackle the industry’s most demanding games. The Lenovo ideapad Y700 gaming laptop features the same red-on-black design and angular mean-looking design elements as the maker's past gaming PCs, not to mention quite a heavy weight. We recently took the Y700 for a spin to see what all it can take; read our full review to see our results!

Sentri All-In-One Home Monitor Review

The $299 result aims to be a hub in your home, not just a silent eye on the front door.

Google Pixel C Review

Google Pixel C Review

Google shows a deft touch for hardware at times, and the Pixel C is one of those occasions. It's a clear cousin to the Chromebook Pixel, with a squared-off anodized aluminum casing and Gorilla Glass protected display. The refreshing absence of logos is presumably considered acceptable because of the color-changing LED light bar on the rear, which can show both the Google hues as well - when the tablet is tapped - as battery status.

Pivotal Living Smart Scale Review

Pivotal Living Smart Scale Review

Of all the times Pivotal Living could've launched its body-fat measuring Smart Scale, the gluttonous period between Thanksgiving and Christmas is probably the most painful. Still, minimal sticker shock does at least temper some of the discomfort of seeing the results of your excess writ large across your smartphone display.
