Lenovo S21e-20 Review – an ultrabook with a crazy bezel

At one time netbooks were all the rage, and though that trend has simmered down, the options for inexpensive and relatively low powered machines are as expansive as ever.

The latest among the maker's small netbook-like Windows offerings is the Lenovo S21e, a laptop with a small display and price tag, and very big bezel. Does it work as well as its larger siblings? Read our review to find out.

LEGO computer gets even smaller with micro PC system

For some people, a PC isn't just a work horse. It's also a way of life. For these people, sprucing up their computers is just as important as beefing them up with specs and features. And what better way to spruce a rather bland, industrial looking box than by encasing them inside LEGO bricks? Yes, Total Geekdom's Mike Schropp is back and this time, he's really gone the distance. He has created what is practically the smallest LEGO computer. But as they say, don't judge a book by its cover. Or, in this case, a block.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the PS4 and PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the PS4 and PC

Rise of the Tomb Raider was snapped up as an Xbox offering, but as it turns out, it will be making its way to other devices as well: namely, the PlayStation 4 and PC. Square Enix announced that it will be available on Steam early next year, and that those on Sony’s gaming console will also get access, but will need to wait more than a year, as it won’t be arriving until 2016’s holiday season. Whether those with a PlayStation 3 will get access wasn’t mentioned, and therefore it isn’t looking likely.

Is there a market or even a need for Android PCs?

Is there a market or even a need for Android PCs?

As of this writing, the Remix Mini Kickstarter stands at almost $600,000. That's more than 10 times their $50,000 goal. And that's barely a week since it launched, with 38 days left before the campaign ends. With a little over 9,000 backers, the Kickstarter success seems to be sending a message. Forget Android TV or Android Auto or maybe even Android Wear. An Android PC is the next best thing. Or is it? How has personal computing changed over the past years since Android came on the scene and is an Android PC really a logical evolution of the platform?

BEAT DA BEAT hits Android, iOS: one bullet for every note

Previously greenlit on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, BEAT DA BEAT will be released for Android and iOS in August. Created by the folks at Nekki in Moscow, this game takes the music of some heavy dubstep musical artists and creates a bullet-hell genre game that dances to the beat. BEAT DA BEAT has flying enemies jamming lasers down your phone while they appear, blast, and shine to the music. "Absolutely everything - enemy's actions, moves, shooting - is build on the base of the song that is currently playing."

Mortal Kombat X brings the rock with Tremor

Mortal Kombat X brings the rock with Tremor

The final Mortal Kombat X component of the Kombat Pack has arrived in this week's bundle. The bits and pieces you get here include new skins and a whole new character: Tremor. This fellow is rather rocky. He's basically Jax, but with rock arms instead of metal. He's also got less rockets going for him and more magic. Almost like he's Sandman from Spider-Man, but with more rocks and less sand. You may well have seen him before, too - he first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.
