HP’s Apple-baiting Spectre isn’t its only slick new laptop today

HP’s Apple-baiting Spectre isn’t its only slick new laptop today

All eyes may be on HP's new Spectre 13.3, dubbed the world's thinnest notebook, but if sacrificing touch and 4K are too big a compromise for you, fear not. The new ultraportable makes do with a non-touchscreen Full HD display - not to mention only USB-C ports for connectivity - in order to hit its 10.4mm thickness, but there are three other new HP models revealed today which balance their scales a little differently.

Apple’s thinner 13, 15 inch MacBooks tipped for June

Apple’s thinner 13, 15 inch MacBooks tipped for June

Apple's event earlier this week wasn't exactly surprising, given how the iPhone SE and 9.7-inch iPad Pro have been leaked to death. Still, the reality of those products proved to be even better than the rumors. Not everyone, however, is sold. Those people can probably start turning their attention to Apple's next batch of new devices. Chinese new site DigiTimes reports that Apple will be revealing "ultra thin" Macbooks, in 13 and 15 inch sizes, at WWDC, which may be schedule smack in the middle of June.

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.

MacBook USB-C recall instructions tell if you’re affected

Apple's first USB-C MacBook release included a cord which had a bit of a hardware flaw - one that the company is now in the process of fixing. For those of you that've purchased a MacBook in the past several years, there's one simple way of figuring out whether or not you MAY be affected. If your power cord is a MagSafe connector (magnetic, as the name implies), you do not need to worry. From there, if you're a USB-C sort of user, there's one more check.

Razer releases $10 notebook

Razer releases $10 notebook

If it weren't already clear that Razer was expanding to a full "lifestyle" brand, today's release of a real paper pages notebook should do the trick. What you're seeing here is a notebook - for you to write in, not electronic - that's meant to be an exact replica of the Razer Blade laptop lineup at a glance. The cover looks like the outer shell of the Razer Blade line, and the first page looks like a keyboard. This is likely the first and last time you'll see a notebook for sale from a major OEM for a cool tenner.

HP offers students a budget-friendly Chromebook 11 G4 EE

The low-resource, low-cost Chromebooks were initially designed for use cases that didn't exactly require a lot of computing power but still needed the basics, including connecting to the Internet. In other words, while Chromebooks might not make much sense for power users, they shine bright inside classrooms. Adding to the growing roster of Chromebooks designed for schools, HP has unveiled the Education Edition or EE of its Chromebook 11 G4, with a price and ruggedness that any student of any age can handle.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro Review

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro Review

The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Pro does not have a sexy name, nor has it been the subject of extensive ad backing by the company that makes it. This computer isn't the epitome of mind-blowing uniqueness in its form or its function. There are a few problems with this notebook, but none of them have to do with the hardware. In fact, aside from the fact that this machine runs Windows 10, there's very little that I'd change in this device in order to call it the best notebook on the market today.
