Review: Lenovo W550s — an ultraportable workstation

Review: Lenovo W550s — an ultraportable workstation

Lenovo has been busy rolling out all manner of flexible, slim, and otherwise noteworthy laptops and tablets, but that doesn't mean it has turned a blind eye to one of its staple offerings: workstations. These laptops are designed for the demanding users among us, those who need a dedicated keypad for cranking out numbers, a large display, and hardware able to render animations or similar tasks. The W550s is no exception, but it comes with a twist: it is ultraportable, at least as far as workstations go, and it is surprisingly thin for all that it offers. Read our full SlashGear review for more!

It's been available for gaming consoles for months, and today is a grand day in which the game is finally brought to a platform where it can shine brightest. But before you jump in and check out what all the hubbub is about, you're going to need to know three very important things.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) — better than ever

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2015) — better than ever

Lenovo has found favor among business users with its ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptops, the latest of which has finally arrived. In many ways the 2015 iteration of the X1 Carbon is the same as the previous generation, bringing with it refinements that improve the overall product rather than any substantial changes to the design itself. It's still the same business-chic ultrabook light enough tote around while traveling but powerful enough to meet demanding needs; it is, however, a little more useable than the last version, the reasons for which we've detailed in this full review.

PC market down — Apple, Lenovo, HP are all up

PC market down — Apple, Lenovo, HP are all up

By and large, we’re not interested in PCs as much as we used to be. A recent study by Gartner suggests the PC market took a dip once again, with sales slipping 1.3% over this time last year. While the lump-sum “Others” are largely at fault, even Dell saw their numbers take a hit, dropping 3.8% versus Q1 2014. Others are surprisingly up, though, with Lenovo leading the charge, gaining 13.5% over last year. Apple also made significant headway, proving the changes made to their Macs are having positive effects.

Intel HDMI Compute Stick can soon be yours, pre-orders are up

Intel HDMI Compute Stick can soon be yours, pre-orders are up

Consumer computers are getting smaller and smaller, and we're not just referring to the powerful computers that you already have in your pockets for playing Clash of Clans. PC and chip makers seem to be riding on a trend to put a usable PC inside a device the size of a USB dongle, or a bit larger, ala the Chromecast. One of the more recent attempts is Intel, who is trying to spread its Atom chips everywhere it can. And while it may not be as "cool" as the Mouse Computer m-Stick that comes with a fan, it at least comes from a more reputable brand.

LEGO Computer combination is like Peanut Butter & Jelly

LEGO Computer combination is like Peanut Butter & Jelly

There are just some things that are not only great in themselves but are also great when taken together with something just as great. For some, that would PB & J. For Mike Schropp of Total Geekdom, that would be LEGO and computers. Building on his years of experience housing computing power inside the popular bricks, Schropp has finally decided to get his hands dirty and build what is probably a geek's biggest dream come true. But while this box made of LEGO from the outside might seem unassuming, make no mistake as this computer could be just as powerful as your laptop, or maybe even more.

Mouse Computer m-Stick PC on a stick keeps cool with a fan

Mouse Computer m-Stick PC on a stick keeps cool with a fan

The launch of Google Chromecast started a trend of putting lightweight but very functional computing systems on a device the size of an HDMI dongle. We've seen the likes of Dell's Wyse Cloud Connect, Intel's HDMI Compute, and more recently, the Acer Chromebit and Microsoft's Windows 8.1 PC stick from Lucoms. These small computers, however, because of their compact size, run the risk of running hot. Japanese outfit Mouse Computer thinks it has the solution to that common problem, which involves nothing hi-tech or sophisticated. All it needs is a fan.
