Apple is reportedly planning a new, 12-inch MacBook Air which would be even slimmer and more portable than the existing model, doing away with the fan among other things.

This week NVIDIA has introduced a series of gaming notebook GPUs, starting with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M. This series also includes the GTX 870M, 860M, and 850M, and will be ushering in an era in which notebook gaming doesn’t just mean you’re able to sit on a plane for a half hour before your machine dies of heavy gaming action. This series works with a feature NVIDIA calls "Battery Boost", not to put too fine a point on it.

Lenovo has rolled out a variety of business-chic ThinkPad laptops over the past few months, as well as the wonderfully flexible Yoga 2 Pro. We've reviewed several of the company's devices in recent times, including the T440s, the X240, and the ThinkPad Yoga. While they're all fine machines, none of them live up to the sheer beauty and svelte thin profile that is the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. With this laptop comes an ultra-thin profile that tapers into an edge so thin, one is tempted to think it can slice bread, a high 2560 x 1440 resolution display that is aptly described as eye-candy, and the iconic ThinkPad design.
