Windows 8.1 Hands-on: The hidden gem features

Windows 8.1 Hands-on: The hidden gem features

Windows 8.1 is, Microsoft claims, the culmination of listening to feedback around Windows 8 and finessing the features users have been most demanding or vocal about. The original version shook up long-standing PC fans, with its Live Tile interface and marginalization of the traditional desktop, but there's more of an attempt to merge the two in Windows 8.1. That's certainly not all the new OS has to offer, however; we caught up with Microsoft to dig through some of the features the company is quietly proud of: read on for our pick of the hidden gems.

HP Slate 21 All-in-One bizarrely blends Android tablet and desktop

HP Slate 21 All-in-One bizarrely blends Android tablet and desktop

HP's Slate series of tablets is getting ideas above its station, with the new HP Slate 21 trying to edge in on the company's all-in-one range. The odd hybrid runs Android on an NVIDIA Tegra 4 chip, rather than Windows as you might expect from an HP all-in-one PC, and is fronted by a 21.5-inch Full HD touchscreen with ten-finger multitouch support. HP is positioning the Slate 21 as ideal for multimedia consumption and web browsing, along with video calls.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus and Lite leak continues pre-event flow

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus and Lite leak continues pre-event flow

While the Samsung event coming up at Noon Eastern time will certainly be showing a device or two that we've never seen before, it would appear the company has a bit of a leaky faucet on their hands. The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite as well as the Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus have been delivered before the event through non-official pipelines with AMD processing technology inside and a while casing all around.

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 “Table PC” Review

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27 “Table PC” Review

The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon 27, "Table PC" as they call it, is easily one of the most unique PCs we've seen in the past several years. This machine works with a massive display that sits on a hinge holding it up - or allowing it to lie flat - for tablet gaming with touch. It's as if someone decided they weren't having as much fun as the potential for a tablet would allow them, and blew the whole thing up with Lenovo behind the wheel.

Acer Aspire R7 Review

Acer Aspire R7 Review

The Acer machine you're about to see is rather unique - it's got what the group calls an "Ezel" hinge, made to expand the units abilities beyond that of the average notebook or desktop. Here we're using Windows 8 in combination with Acer's hardware to add another chapter to the unofficial List of Touchscreen Computer Configurations, this time with a display that moves up, folds back, and becomes nearly flat, lifts up and sits vertical or horizontal, and in one particular setup looks strikingly similar to the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek.

LG ET83 Touch 10 LED Monitor Review

LG ET83 Touch 10 LED Monitor Review

The 23-inch Class 10 point touch LED IPS monitor from LG going by code-name 23ET83V-W is more than just a mouthful in name: it's a rather fine piece of equipment made for today's Windows 8-friendly computing universe. The LG ET83 has been working hard on our review desk for more than a week, becoming more than a review device in our common working environment here at SlashGear. Instead of turning this review out with ultra-speed, it became more of everyday experience: this is a monitor I dread having to send back.

iOS 7 3rd party keyboards leaked early [UPDATE]

iOS 7 3rd party keyboards leaked early [UPDATE]

Right before Apple's WWDC 2013 keynote begins today, one of what we must assume will be several system-wide onscreen keyboard replacement apps has leaked. This miniature bit of information lets us know that Apple will more than likely be allowing said keyboard (Fleksy) along with multiple other keyboard replacement apps to work inside iOS. This is a big change for Apple's mobile operating system, one where such cross-app functionality hasn't been a reality due to Apple's hard and fast control over the user interface in the operating system.
