Apple begins 13-inch MacBook Pro battery replacement program

Owners of Apple's latest 13-inch MacBook Pro model will want to take notice of a new servicing program the company launched on Friday: certain models of the laptop qualify for a free battery replacement after Apple discovered an issue that can result in the device's battery to expand, a problem sometimes seen in phones and smartwatches.

Samsung Chromebook Pro gets backlit keyboard one year later

Laptops are made for typing and Chromebooks are really no different, be it traditional, convertible, or even detachable.

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.
