HP Pavilion Mini and Stream Mini: Windows in the palm of your hand

HP has set its sights on both tiny Chromeboxes and cheap Windows devices with its new pair of budget-friendly and small-form-factor Windows PCs. Both the HP Pavilion Mini and the HP Stream Mini Desktops are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, being similar in style and size to, for example, a set-top-box or a Chrome box. Despite the small size, both run Windows 8.1, giving users an option to get their Windows fix without planting a big desktop or shelling out for an expensive laptop.

Flow wireless controller: gesture control and more

When a trackpad isn't precise enough for your computing needs, you likely turn to a mouse.

Flow features a high number of accuracy points, and is designed to better work with the human hand in comparison to the traditional mouse design.

Lenovo ThinkPad W540 Review – Old-School Pride

Lenovo ThinkPad W540 Review – Old-School Pride

The ThinkPad's distant history is pocked with no-nonsense business machines sporting plain designs and thick bodies. Those are largely a thing of the past, with the newest ThinkPads coming with a side dish of sleekness that make them stand out from systems of days gone by.
