HP Spectre 13 Review: Thin requires compromise

HP Spectre 13 Review: Thin requires compromise

How thin is too thin, and is extreme style worth extreme compromise?

MacBook 2016 Review – Still controversial

MacBook 2016 Review – Still controversial

More than a year after it first launched, the MacBook Retina is still one of the most divisive of Apple's products. Now, in its 2016 refresh, it finds itself in a replay of many of those initial complaints: just one port; a processor chosen for being humble; and a variety of other compromises in the name of keeping a waif-like form factor. Has Apple's stubbornness damned its premium ultraportable in the process?

Review: Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 4 business ultrabook

It's Lenovo's most beloved business laptop: the X1 Carbon.

HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation Review

HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation Review

The HP ZBook Studio G3 Mobile Workstation is as handsome as it is prepared to do the work you're going to need it to do. Unlike workstation laptops of the past, this unit does not dispense with the thinness or the weight, either. This machine is an Ultrabook - what HP calls the world's first quad core workstation Ultrabook, in fact. It has a 15.6-inch display up front and your choice of a bunch of different innards under the hood.

Lenovo Ideapad 300 15.6″ Review

The 15.6-inch glossy display makes for a large overall laptop, one that presents its bulk well. How does the laptop hold up in everyday life, and will it meet your needs?

Lenovo Ideapad 300S Review

Lenovo Ideapad 300S Review

Lenovo has many flexible laptops, of course, hence the "Yoga" moniker. Not everyone wants a flexible laptop, though.

This laptop may not have the Yoga flexibility, but it brings with it a comfortable price tag and the same durable, attractive stylings we've come to expect from Lenovo. What all does the laptop have to offer? Read our full review to find out!

Razer Blade Stealth Review: a true MacBook alternative at last

Razer Blade Stealth Review: a true MacBook alternative at last

The Razer Blade Stealth is not made for gaming - not on it's own, anyway. When it was first shown at CES 2016, the company suggested that it was meant to be part of a two-device combo, the other being a GPU dock that gives the laptop a massive boost in graphics power. The Razer Blade Stealth is launching on its own - but unless you'd planned on buying this laptop ONLY for laptop-centric gaming, that won't be a problem. Razer just out-designed itself.

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.
