Google Jamboard virtual whiteboard is now available for purchase

Surface Pro has some great news (and some bad)

Surface Pro has some great news (and some bad)

At first glance, Microsoft has knocked the new Surface Pro out of the park. Coming hot on the heels of the Surface Laptop, the tablet-that's-a-notebook (and which mustn't be called the Surface Pro 5, oh no) could've been overshadowed by its Alcantara-clad clamshell sibling. Instead, Microsoft has gone down the wishlist of existing owners and ticked all the boxes. Well, all apart from one.

Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Review: A premium 2-in-1 with a price to match

You wait for one premium 2-in-1 Windows 10 hybrid, and along come a whole selection at once. Samsung is hoping the Galaxy Book 12-inch will catch your eye out of a growing market, promising the latest in digital S Pen technology plus more processing power than you might expect from such a skinny slate. Question is, does the Galaxy Book do enough to warrant its $1,129.99 price tag?

This is the New Microsoft Surface Pro

This is the New Microsoft Surface Pro

As expected, Microsoft didn't announce a new Surface Pro 2-in-1 at its Shanghai event. It, instead, announce "The New Surface Pro". No number this time, perhaps to hide the fact that this Surface Pro might not be worthy of a bump in digit. That said, with the refinements that Microsoft bestowed on this New Unnumbered Surface Pro, it still deserves to be given a deeper look, especially for those upgrading from a much older Surface Pro model.

The HP Spectre x2 wants to solve your Surface Pro frustrations

Microsoft has left the Surface Pro to languish, unloved, and HP isn't going to let an opportunity like that pass it by. Welcome, then, the HP Spectre X2, the latest in the laptop company's range of touchscreen 2-in-1s. With the body of a tablet - and a 12.3-inch, 3,000 x 2,000 resolution one at that - and the flexibility of a magnetically-attached keyboard, HP is hoping you'll forget all about your Surface Pro dreams.

Microsoft Research holographic display can fit in eyeglasses

Microsoft Research holographic display can fit in eyeglasses

Of the three major "synthetic" reality platforms, Microsoft's HoloLens comes closest to the dream of overlaying digital objects on top of real world ones and interact with both of them in the same way. However, it shares the same limitations as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift in terms of the bulk of the headset required for it to function. That is why Microsoft Research teams have been working on a prototype that brings a "true" holographic display to near-eye devices that almost look no different from your regular pair o eyeglasses.

Panasonic's line of rugged Toughbook computers isn't exactly new. It isn't the first time it put out a 2-in-1 detachable laptop form factor either.

For another, Panasonic boasts that this is the first 2-in-1 Toughbook to use a 3:2 aspect ratio screen, which it bills to be an even better fit for its industry customers.
