Google Chromebook Pixel rebooted with USB-C

Google has revamped the Chromebook Pixel, its flagship Chrome OS notebook, though while the new 2015 Pixel is more affordable than its painfully expensive predecessor, it's still not cheap. The new Pixel runs Chrome OS on a 12.85-inch, 2560 x 1700 touchscreen, with either Core i5 or i7 processors inside, though unlike the first-gen version there's no integrated LTE option.

Since then, plenty of people have been asking whether MacBook Air or MacBook is the way to go for those on the move.

HP Spectre x360 hands-on: When PC makers get OCD

The HP Spectre x360 is, if you're brave enough to play Devil’s Advocate, the Windows notebook you create when you channel Apple levels of obsessive-compulsion. Latest in HP’s high-end ultraportable family, the new Spectre isn’t just a capable aluminum laptop but a turning point in involvement between an OEM and Microsoft: a never-before-seen investment in time, energy, and Very Clever People.

Gigabyte P37X 17.3-inch laptop gets its game on

It's been barely two months since Gigabyte launched its 15.6-inch P35X gaming laptop, and yet here it is again announcing a successor. The Gigabyte P37X, however, might not be too big of a jump to deter you from grabbing the smaller notebook.

OLPC, One Education to launch a modular tablet/laptop hybrid

The One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project had a laudable goal, but unfortunately those plans materialized in very different, and sometimes disappointing, ways. But for all their failures, you have to give them props for never knowing when or how to give up. Now OLPC's Australian partner One Education is said to have a new XO device ready to be unveiled in a few weeks and it is probably more ambitious than ever.
