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

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.

Samsung ATIV One 7 Curved bends the AIO for CES

Samsung ATIV One 7 Curved bends the AIO for CES

Samsung has been bringing curved-screen TVs, monitors, and smartphones to the market for a couple of years. Now it's time to hit the PC market with the ATIV One 7 Curved. This is what Samsung suggests is "the industry's first curved All-in-One PC", coming with a 27-inch curved, Full HD display first and foremost. A 4000R curvature and 178-degrees of viewing angle makes for a visual experience that's larger than a flat screen of the same size. Samsung will be bringing this device to CES 2015 in Las Vegas where SlashGear will be getting up close and personal for you.

GULEEK i8 Windows 8.1 box comes with its own battery

GULEEK i8 Windows 8.1 box comes with its own battery

Pico PC's like Zotac's ZBOX lines may be exactly that, tiny, but they aren't completely portable despite their portable size. They are, at the very least, tethered to a power supply to be even useful. One rather intriguing new product, however, tries to address that limitation. This odd GULEEK i8 "Windows 8.1 Smart Google TV Player" indeed comes with almost everything other pico computers have to offer with just a single but very important difference. It has its own 3,000 mAh battery inside.

Facebook brings trending topics to mobile, organizes the discussion

Facebook brings trending topics to mobile, organizes the discussion

Facebook has made a concerted effort of late to be your go-to source for more than just wedding announcements and passive-aggressive complaining. Their trending topics section, typically housed on the right side of your home screen, has been a staple on the desktop. This is an increasingly mobile landscape, though, and Facebook is trying to stay relevant there, too. Now, trending topics will make their way to mobile, with the conversation being aggregated in a way that will make it easier to cut through the nonsense and get right to the gritty details.

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

Tiki-Z mini-Review: The Tiny Gaming King defends his crown

The following review is going to be short and to the point. Not because it doesn't deserve more words, not because it's not an important product. We'd never do such a thing. Instead, this review is going to be short because there's not much to say that we didn't already say in our first Falcon Northwest Tiki review and subsequent crowning of the device as the best gaming PC of the year in 2013. Never mind the fact that it was actually unveiled before the year began.

OS X Yosemite adoption week one: slightly outpacing Mavericks

OS X Yosemite adoption week one: slightly outpacing Mavericks

It's been one week since Apple's desktop software OS X Yosemite has been released to the public, and adoption is taking place quick. Word comes from the folks at Chitika where they show OS X 10.10 Yosemite being present on 12.8% of the Apple computers in their ad impression bin. With Mac computers selling at a rate 30% faster here in Apple's latest earnings report than they were last year at this time, an increased adoption rate of Yosemite over Mavericks is all the more impressive.

Here’s why Ikea BEKANT has standing desk fans frantic

Here’s why Ikea BEKANT has standing desk fans frantic

Ikea’s new BEKANT standing desk is quite the marvel. It raises and lowers with the push of a button, and is height adjustable to just about any standing or sitting height. It’s also Ikea’s first foray into the truly adjustable desk realm, whereas previous submissions were static once assembled. The Ikea faithful are really, really excited about BEKANT. With Ikea no longer selling previously popular standing desk models, and the competition not offering one important thing BEKANT does, here’s why Ikea’s desk is so popular right now.

New Ikea standing desk adjusts with push of a button

New Ikea standing desk adjusts with push of a button

Standing desks are one of those mildly polarizing topics. You probably shouldn’t be sitting all day, but standing desks are either really expensive, or really suck (sorry, but it’s true). Ikea has stepped in with their first truly convertible stand/sit desk (adjustable with the push of a button), leaving you without that tough choice of standing or sitting all the time. It’s also priced right, compared to some options it competes with. Like all Ikea stuff, it’s also a bit weird, with an equally odd name to boot.

Zotac ZBOX PI320 delivers Windows 8.1 in a tiny box

Zotac is on a roll with its Windows-powered "pico" desktop computers. Popular for delivering small computers, some of which run Linux or are powered by ARM processors, Zotac has lately been delving into tiny boxes that run Windows 8.1 right out of the box, pardon the pun. Last month saw the rise of the BI320, its first Windows 8.1 mini box. Now we have the ZBOX PI320, with an even more powerful processor and a price tag that matches its extremely portable body.
