This is how much Samsung’s Galaxy Books will cost

This is how much Samsung’s Galaxy Books will cost

While Microsoft may have a new Surface Pro 5 coming next month, leaks paint a rather disappointing picture of a slightly refreshed 2-in-1. That gives its partners and competitors plenty of opportunities to grab the market for themselves. That is, if the price is right. Judging by the price and availability details that Samsung just put out, its new Galaxy Book 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablets might indeed just offer the market a stop-gap solution until the next Microsoft Surface innovation. If and when that happens.

Onyx Boox Typewriter is an ebook reader and a laptop in one

2-in-1 tablet/laptop hybrids are in fashion these days. In fact, analysts like IDC tout them as the saviors of the PC industry. But the form factor is also seeing some interest in more than just PCs. They've also come to tablets and even e-ink readers. Yes, you heard that right.

Lenovo X1 Carbon (5th Gen) Review: Almost perfect

Lenovo X1 Carbon (5th Gen) Review: Almost perfect

Imagine pulling a laptop out of its box for the first time, only to worry that it may not include a battery due to its insanely light weight. That was my first thought when I retrieved the latest Lenovo X1 Carbon (5th generation) from its box. It's hard to imagine that this laptop is powered by anything other than thin air, mostly because it's hard to imagine there's an entire set of hardware -- including a battery, of course -- inside this thin and light body. What kind of sacrifices had to be made to produce such a svelte laptop? Surprisingly few, it turns out.

LaptopMag says Apple no longer the top brand

Purchasing Apple devices has always been as much about lifestyle choices as it is a technical one. Even when there might be better alternatives available, consumers still flock to Apple partly because of the strength of its brand. That holding power, however, might be fading in the laptop market. At least if LaptopMag is to be believed. According to its Best and Worst Laptops of 2017, Apple is no longer the top laptop, having fallen from grace from #1 to #5.

Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 offers a Retina display on a budget

There is no shortage of affordable laptops aiming for consumers with more constrained budgets. Computing devices of that kind usually come with compromises, and one of the first to go, aside from the processor, is the display. More often than not, "cheap" laptops mean Full HD, sometimes even just HD, displays. Chuwi wants to be different, or at least that's the goal. While price details have yet to be released, the Chuwi Lapbook 12.3 is unabashedly mid-range but still manages so squeeze in a 2736x1824 "Retina" display.

Lenovo Yoga Book with Chrome OS might be no more

Lenovo Yoga Book with Chrome OS might be no more

The rather innovative and daring Lenovo Yoga Book was somewhat great as a Windows 2-in-1 tablet and OK as an Android slate. It seemed, however, perfect for that other hybrid operating system, Chrome OS. Part desktop OS and soon part Android desktop, there have been signs that this other Google OS might be coming to the Lenovo Yoga Book soon. All those hopes, however, may have been dashed by a source code change that hints, but doesn't confirm, that a Chromebook Yoga Book is, for all intents and purposes, dead.

If you dream of owning a MacBook Air, now is as good a time as any to pick one up.
