Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) Review

Huawei is probably best known for making smartphones primarily as well as networking equipment, two product lines that are at the center of political and legal controversy. A few years ago, however, Huawei started getting its hands into another related business, that of selling laptops. With a product name like the MateBook X Pro and a distinctly familiar design, there is little doubt whose market share Huawei is after.

This year, Huawei has come out with a 2019 model that retains not just the name but a few details as well. We dig in to find out if what has changed is enough to justify the new and higher price tag.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 3rd-gen Review: a flexible business ultrabook

Lenovo has a flexible version of its most popular business ultrabook, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga. As the name suggests, the X1 Yoga brings the X1 lineup's robust business features to Lenovo's flexible Yoga design, enabling users to fold the display entirely back into a tablet-like mode. The model's built-in stylus greatly expands the X1 Yoga's abilities versus the X1 Carbon, but is it worth the transition?

One of the best business ultraportable product lines on the market, Lenovo's ThinkPad X Series, was recently updated with a new model: the ThinkPad X280.

Huawei MateBook X Pro Review

Huawei MateBook X Pro Review

I couldn't help but make a comparison to a MacBook right out the box when I first opened the Huawei MateBook X Pro. This is a device that's taken some definite design cues from the MacBook Pro - the latest round of MacBook Pros, at least. It runs Windows 10, though, and it has some unique features that Apple's notebook doesn't. This Huawei MateBook X Pro isn't just a notebook made by a smartphone company - it's a smart piece of hardware in its own right.

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review

Lenovo Legion Y720 Review

As someone who primarily games on PC, my advice to anyone who’s looking to get into PC gaming is usually going to be to build their own. Up until recently, I would have written that my advice would be to always go the custom build route, but thanks to that thorn in the side of the gaming enthusiast known as cryptocurrency mining, that may not be entirely realistic for a while. In turn, this makes buying pre-built PCs a better proposition than it usually is, and there are plenty of manufacturers ready and waiting to fill the gaps. Lenovo is once such manufacturer, with its Y720 offering solid mid-to-high-range hardware in a mobile package.

Eve V Review: dreams can come true

Eve V Review: dreams can come true

Microsoft has never had good luck with its own hardware outside of the Xbox. And when it did strike gold, the company may have suddenly decided to take things in a different direction. Rumors of the Surface Pro’s imminent demise and the OEM fallout that might follow has some 2-in-1 fans worried. Fortunately, a rather daring startup based in Finland, once considered the leader in innovation, not only picked up the torch but even did what no OEM would dare do: ask users directly what they wanted. And thus the Eve V was born. And now we get to take a deep look to see if they were able to deliver.

Gigabyte Aero 15X Review (Late 2017, GTX 1070)

Over the past few weeks we've been testing the Gigabyte Aero 15X gaming notebook. This is one of the newest in new gaming notebooks - as such, it is not part of the "massive performance means massive hardware" families of the past. This machine also boasts a few other features that make it unique - like long battery life, a highly decent display (with TINY bezels) and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics inside.
