Chuwi MiniBook Review: Big potential with small problems

Chuwi MiniBook Review: Big potential with small problems

Netbooks may have been short-lived but their legacy lives on in quite a number of different kinds of computing devices. On one side, Chromebooks share the same cloud-centric DNA, this time defined by Google’s platform based on what is essentially a web browser on steroids. On another side, a breed of mini-laptops have popped up, perhaps inspired by the dream of portability that Netbooks once promised. Some may scoff at their diminutive size but a niche market has proven it can be profitable though with proportionally small margins. The latest to join this fray is Chuwi MiniBook and we take a good hard look at it to see if the small laptop will be able to deliver the same impressive experiences Chuwi’s other products have so far been able to offer.

Opera GX gaming browser now available on macOS

Opera GX gaming browser now available on macOS

With Google Stadia's launch and developments in browser technology, you might think that browser makers like Mozilla and Opera will be jumping onto the game streaming train. That idyllic future might still be far away and, until then, browsers and games will exist separately and sometimes in competition for computer resources. Despite that situation, Opera wants to paint itself as a gaming-friendly browser developer, which is why it created the Opera GX "gaming browser" that it is now making available in early access on macOS.

AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 adds game streaming from anywhere

AMD Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 adds game streaming from anywhere

Game streaming is a hot topic in the industry today but not everyone may be convinced that cloud-based game streaming like Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud are the way to go. Some might prefer to have more direct control by owning and running the games themselves while still having the freedom to do it anywhere. That is exactly what AMD is putting on the table with the Adrenalin 2020 Edition of its Radeon Desktop Software bringing untethered remote access to PC games, provided you have the bandwidth to use.

Apple Pro Display XDR with Nano-Texture requires an Apple cleaning cloth

Apple Pro Display XDR with Nano-Texture requires an Apple cleaning cloth

Although Apple is often praised for its design acumen and almost obsessive attention to detail, there are a few times that it has also been the butt of jokes for some products. Sometimes those jokes eventually go away but some do remain, especially when they're constantly reminded of how Apple can sometimes look out of touch with reality. The latest example of that is the $6,000 Pro Display XDR that comes with a nano-texture glass that apparently requires a very special cloth from Apple to clean.

Windows 7 users to get full-screen reminders to upgrade starting next month

Windows 7 users to get full-screen reminders to upgrade starting next month

If you thought Microsoft was done with its infuriating and embarrassing nagging reminders about upgrading to Windows 10, you probably don't know Microsoft too well. It received no small amount of criticism over its aggressive campaign to get Windows 8 and 8.1 users to move to the next version that resulted in popups appearing at the most inopportune moment. History will be repeating itself mid-January when Microsoft does the same for Windows 7 users, this time with more urgency and more audacity in its strategy.

LG gram 2020 notebook lineup try to prove you can have everything

LG gram 2020 notebook lineup try to prove you can have everything

They say you can't always have everything you want in life and that's especially true when it comes to computers. There are compromises that usually have to be made either due to cost or to the laws of physics. While we still don't know anything definite about the former, LG is trying to sell the idea that the latter doesn't have to be true. The 2020 series of LG gram notebooks, for example, offer the trifecta of performance, portability, and battery life and the only upfront decision you have to make is the size.

Review: Lenovo ThinkPad P53 workstation

When it comes to getting serious work done, ordinary laptops aren't sufficient. Desktops can offer the most power, but the complete lack of portability makes them less than ideal for some users. That's where workstations come in. These laptops bring the performance capabilities of gaming laptops, but with the features and security considerations that professionals need. Lenovo offers a number of workstations in its P Series line, one of the latest models being the ThinkPad P53.

The Mac Pro wheels cost $400

If you want to give your new Mac Pro (2019) a fancy set of roller-skates, be prepared to dig deep. Apple's new pro-spec computer isn't short on headline-worthy specifications, with features like special modular graphics cards and up to 28-core processors, but it's arguably the optional Mac Pro wheels that caused the most consternation back when the new tower was revealed earlier in the year.

You can now order Apple’s new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR

Apple's new Mac Pro has gone up for order, with the flagship macOS computer bringing along the new Apple Pro Display XDR - and its fiendishly expensive stand - for the ride.

OPPO AR Glasses Hands-on: OPPO’s future vision

At OPPO's INNO DAY conference, it revealed its grand vision for growing its business beyond smartphones and, as expected, 5G was one of the core focus of its expansion. This was also unsurprisingly tied to the technologies it enabled and improved, like augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and IoT. What was completely unexpected, however, was that OPPO had been silently working on its own AR glasses for that very purpose. We were able to spend some time with the device to try it out get an early peek at OPPO's vision of its future.
