Here’s how the HP Elite x3 becomes a true PC, with a catch

Here’s how the HP Elite x3 becomes a true PC, with a catch

HP’s Elite x3 giant of a phablet is probably what Microsoft should have launched as the Windows 10 Mobile champion. Aside from having the best specs in any Windows 10 smartphone, it also embodies Microsoft’s dream of seamless computing anywhere and everywhere. While that is already possible via Windows Continuum and something like a Lap Dock, HP adds one more interesting piece to the puzzle: the HP Workspace service that lets you “run” full Windows desktops apps on the Elite x3.

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Tempting fate, not to mention courts and lawyers, once again, Samsung has officially taken off the covers its self-described stylish desktop PC, the ArtPC Pulse. And it’s pretty much as we heard and seen it to be, including that oddly familiar cylindrical design.

And, to some extent, it might be right, as the canister PC does have one thing Apple’s equivalent doesn’t: a somewhat modular design.

Trust me, clocking in over 250,000 air miles this year alone, I know a thing or two about staying productive on the move.

Vensmile K8 puts a PC inside a flexible keyboard

We’ve seen our fair share of keyboards that practically hide computers inside them, whether a full-fledged mini PC or a Raspberry Pi hack.

And that is exactly what a company by the name of Vensmile is attempting to sell. Simply called the K8, the product packages productivity in a more portable form. Too bad it doesn’t have package a display with it as well.

ASUS Transform Mini 2-in-1 goes up for pre-order

The unexpected success of Microsoft’s Surface tablets inspired OEMs to give the nascent 2-in-1 form factor their own spin. But some manufacturers aren’t too shy about being inspired by the same design as well. The ASUS Transformer Mini, formally the Transformer Book T102HA, unabashedly looks like a Microsoft Surface, close enough to a non-Pro Surface 3. But ASUS’ Windows 10 tablet, which is now available for pre-order, has a few things over Microsoft’s flagship tablets. It is, on paper, lighter, not to mention a whole lot cheaper too.
