Lenovo YOGA 910 Review

Lenovo has an update to its previously launched (and quite gorgeous) YOGA 900, and it is called the YOGA 910. This new model is no less beautiful than its 900 counterpart, bringing with it all the luxurious underpinnings and elements of the 900 with some notable updates, including a fully CNC-machined aluminum body and a 7th-gen Intel processor. Is the 910 worth the extra cost over the older 900? Read on to find out.

MacBook Pro with Touch Bar Review (late-2016)

MacBook Pro with Touch Bar Review (late-2016)

Anticipation is a dangerous thing, and expectations around the long-awaited redesign of the Apple MacBook Pro for late 2016 were almost preternaturally high. Beloved workhorse of graphic designers, video editors, coders, and others wedded to the macOS ecosystem, any change to the MacBook Pro was going to be contentious. All the same, even stoic, self-confident Apple was seemingly rocked by the fierce reaction to features like Thunderbolt 3 and the brand new Touch Bar.

Surface Book with Performance Base Review

Surface Book with Performance Base Review

The Surface Book was one of Microsoft's best-kept secrets last year, but the company isn't holding back when it comes to talking up its Performance Base upgrade. Landing in time for the holidays, the new model is actually only 50-percent changed: while the screen-turned-tablet is the same as before, the keyboard section has been squeezed full of extra graphics potency and more battery life. That doesn't come cheap, mind, with this newest model starting at $2,399.

Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016) Review : Still the anti-MacBook Boss

Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016) Review : Still the anti-MacBook Boss

When I reviewed the original Razer Blade Stealth earlier this year, I suggested it was the "true MacBook alternative". I stand by that claim, and go one further: Razer has out-done Apple in one key area. At a time when Apple is taking upwards 2-3 years to bring a refresh to their MacBooks, Razer just released 2 in 1. Less than a year after release, the Razer has another Razer Blade Stealth with upgraded specs.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The road warrior’s future

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The road warrior’s future

I’ve been using Lenovo’s new Yoga Book the last couple of days, and it’s hard not to love this ultra-compact, sleek, and versatile tablet with a twist. This isn’t what you’d call a one trick pony, but instead a multi-talented 2-in-1 to help you stay more productive on the go. Trust me, clocking in over 250,000 air miles this year alone, I know a thing or two about staying productive on the move.

Lenovo YOGA 710 Review: an attractive everyday laptop

Lenovo YOGA 710 Review: an attractive everyday laptop

Between the world of YOGA tablets and ThinkPad business laptops lie an array of beautiful 'everyday' Lenovo laptops that could meet the casual needs of just about anyone: students, travelers, web surfers, casual gamers, small business owners, whomever. The Lenovo YOGA 710 is one such laptop; it boasts a slim and lightweight body that has a beautiful -- if not modest -- design. This model is a somewhat pricey YOGA option, though, and some may wonder whether it is worth getting over, for example, the similarly priced IdeaPad 300S or other YOGA models. Find out in our full review!

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Review — an ultrabook unlike any other

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Review — an ultrabook unlike any other

Ultrabooks are a wonderful thing, but they're known to require compromise: you get this (usually thin and lightweight construction), but you have to sacrifice that (let's say battery life and durability). It's this very nature of compromise that turns many off; more than a few laptop owners have gone with larger, heavier models to get the things their ultrabook counterparts couldn't offer. Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Yoga ultrabook changes this -- there is no compromise needed. In fact, you'd be hard-pressed to find any laptop, ultrabook or otherwise, that can stand up to the utter gem that is this Yoga model. I don't ordinarily feel like reviewing something is an honor, but the ThinkPad X1 Yoga is no ordinary ultrabook.

HP Spectre 13 Review: Thin requires compromise

HP Spectre 13 Review: Thin requires compromise

How thin is too thin, and is extreme style worth extreme compromise? The HP Spectre 13 is the latest notebook to ask those questions, chasing - and indeed besting - Apple's MacBook in millimeters of depth and raw power potential, though demanding concessions in functionality and connectivity from users in the process.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet Review

Perhaps you're still rocking the third-generation X1 Carbon laptop, and you're not quite sure you're ready to upgrade to the fourth-generation model. That doesn't mean you have to forgo this year's update -- Lenovo has the ThinkPad X1 Tablet, a two-in-one tablet/keyboard combo that, combined with a sleek projector-wielding module and a sturdy stylus, form a beastly, highly portable tablet system.

MacBook 2016 Review – Still controversial

MacBook 2016 Review – Still controversial

More than a year after it first launched, the MacBook Retina is still one of the most divisive of Apple's products. Now, in its 2016 refresh, it finds itself in a replay of many of those initial complaints: just one port; a processor chosen for being humble; and a variety of other compromises in the name of keeping a waif-like form factor. Has Apple's stubbornness damned its premium ultraportable in the process?

Review: Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 4 business ultrabook

Review: Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen 4 business ultrabook

It's Lenovo's most beloved business laptop: the X1 Carbon. The fourth-generation model has been released, and it's as beautiful as ever, bringing the best aspects of the X1 Carbon line and refining them with updated hardware, a lighter weight, and a thinner body. Lenovo boasts the laptop as being “Ultrathin, Ultralight, Ultratough.” With a price that can top a couple grand, it’s also pretty expensive. Is the latest Lenovo X1 Carbon worth the upgrade?
