Tiny CHIP computer destroys Kickstarter goal in days

On a severe budget, but still want to tinker with DIY gadgetry? CHIP may have recently sparked your interest.

As small as it is, CHIP is still a full-fledged computer, and can support peripherals like a keyboard or mouse.

CHIP hailed as world’s first $9 computer

If the Raspberry Pi is still too expensive for your inner cheapskate, there's a new contender on the block, and its makers are hawking it as the first-ever $9 computer. It's called CHIP, and it is a complete computer small enough to fit in the palm of one's hand.

There’s on-board storage, and its makers show it being used to create and save documents and play games, among other things. There’s also a cool accessory that goes alongside it, allowing the computer to be used portably.

Review: Lenovo Yoga 3 14 convertible laptop

Lenovo has another Yoga notebook very similar to the ThinkPad Yoga 14 we recently reviewed, and it's called the Lenovo Yoga 3 14. The increasingly convoluted names aside, the Yoga 3 14 is a bigger version of the Yoga 3 11-inch model, bringing with it the same design and general functionality. There are several Yoga-brand PCs available at this point, and so the big question is: does the Yoga 3 14 stand out among them, or is it a rehash of a laptop we've already seen a time or two?

ODiN Aurora mouse projects a laser trackpad onto surfaces

ODiN is a mouse that functions like a trackpad, only it uses projected lasers rather than traditional hardware. The design, upon first glance, appears to be a Transformer, but it's not -- it's the Norse god of war, and the projected image includes a laser spear to drive that theme home. The mouse works by sitting on a desk and projecting a "trackpad" onto the surface in which the user can control their computer's cursor. More details after the jump!

Stardock Start10 gives back the nostalgic Start menu on Windows 10

Stardock Start10 gives back the nostalgic Start menu on Windows 10

Since Windows 8, the newer Microsoft OS's have been designed with touchscreen capabilities in mind. This led to the diminished functionality of the classically recognizable Start menu. Earlier versions of Windows 8 didn't use a start menu, that bottom-left based pop-up menu that Windows users had grown accustomed to over the years. Stardock is a company that released their own start menu, Start8, to fill the lacuna in Windows features. Windows 10 is now on the horizon, and Stardock is following suit in announcing their completed development of Start10, their newest Start menu.

Whiteboard sticker turns your laptop lid into a scratchpad

If your laptop has a touchscreen and you feel the impromptu need to scribble out notes, all you need is a stylus. If it doesn't have a touchscreen, you can turn to your tablet, and if you don't have a tablet, you can turn to your smartphone (and, of course, there are things like Wacom slates). None of those sound appealing? You can go the old-school route, but who wants to carry about paper pads and pens? Enter the whiteboard laptop sticker.

Dell Precision M3800 workstation update adds 4K, Thunderbolt 2

It seems to be the week of laptop refreshes, with Panasonic having introduced its updated Toughbook 31 yesterday, and now Dell has done similar with its M3800 mobile workstation. This laptop promises to be the type of powerhouse workstation professionals and otherwise demanding users need while remaining relatively thin and light -- something not entirely common in a segment mostly composed of heavy brick-like machines.
