CyberPower Trinity gaming PC looks more like a spaceship

CyberPower Trinity gaming PC looks more like a spaceship

We've seen our fair share of "eccentric" looking, to put it kindly, gaming PCs that cater to gamers that have equally unusual tastes in design. But we have to hand over the crown to CyberPower and its new Trinity PC. Throwing out almost every traditional PC design convention out the window, this gaming PC sports a unique structure and arrangement that is, to put it mildly, really out of this world. Eschewing the boxed form of many computers, the Trinity gives justice to its name and is composed instead of three distinct "blades".

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.
