Lenovo IdeaPad L340 Gaming laptop is made for undercover gamers

Some wear the term "gamer" as a badge of honor. Others aren't sure what to make of it. Still, others might see themselves only as part-time gamers when and where they have the opportunity to sneak in a few clicks here and there.

If you ignore or turn off the blue lighting, this IdeaPad L340 Gaming could very well pass off as a notebook for serious work.

Tesla custom Full Self-Driving Computer is already in all new cars

Windows Sets tab feature killed even before it could be released

For better or worse, Windows 10 is the most different version of Windows ever since Windows 95. From the way it was released and updated to the features it gained, Microsoft took the opportunity to break away from the past while still holding on to some roots.

Galaxy View 2 to come with a more usable stand

Remember the Samsung Galaxy View? You'd be forgiven if you had forgotten or even never heard of this oversized tablet that isn't a tablet. It predated smart displays by a few years and seemed to offer little in terms of practical use. That, however, doesn't seem to have discouraged Samsung and even AT&T from making a second one.

Come next month, OnePlus will be breaking tradition.
