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.

HP Pavilion x2 12″ adds USB-C and bigger screen to budget convertible

HP's Pavilion X2 proved to be a budget Windows 10 detachable tablet surprise, and now it's getting a bigger brother. Launched at CES 2016 this week, the HP Pavilion x2 12" bumps the display from 10-inches to 12-inches, but keeps the easily-docked tablet display and removable keyboard section that turns the x2 from a notebook to a slate and vice-versa.
