HP ZBook x2 crams a workstation in 2-in-one form

Microsoft may have just unveiled not one but two new Surface Book 2s, but it’s hardly the only detachable PC game in town anymore. Other OEMs have already followed suit. HP, for example, already has the Elite x2 and the Spectre x2. So what’s the harm in adding one more? While differentiation is usually a concern, it’s no problem for the new HP ZBook x2. That’s because unlike any other 2-in-1 detachable PC in the market, HP boasts that all the power you need is packed inside the tablet half of the contraption.

pi-top DIY Raspberry Pi laptop has just become even better

pi-top DIY Raspberry Pi laptop has just become even better

The Raspberry Pi is a great low-power, low-cost computer for making things and learning STEAM, but its barebones design isn’t always a good fit for some classrooms. Fortunately, there is a whole universe of RPi products and accessories to fill in the gap. The pi-top is one of those, guiding young and old alike in building their own laptop almost from scratch. And on its third birthday, pi-top is introducing a second-generation pi-top that not only makes it more powerful but also more accessible in more ways than one.

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 First Look and Unboxing : Memories Reborn

Lenovo ThinkPad 25 First Look and Unboxing : Memories Reborn

My first impression of the Lenovo ThinkPad 25 is wholly positive - but it's not because this device is the latest and the greatest in high-tech innovation. Instead, this Lenovo notebook feels more like a fantasy - a good fantasy - in which the phrase "if it isn't broke, don't fix it" works in the world of devices that age out after 2 or 3 years of use. What we've got here is a real rarity - retro done right.

Google Pixelbook first impressions and Pen hands-on: High End Again

The new most extravagant Chromebook comes from Google, and it's called the Google Pixelbook. Much in the same vein as the Chromebook Pixels that've come before it, this Pixelbook is a high-performance piece of machinery made for Chrome OS. Much like convertible Chromebooks and Windows notebooks that've come before it, this unit can fold down flat and back over itself to become two kinds of stand-up displays or a tablet.

GPD Pocket Ubuntu Editon Review

GPD Pocket Ubuntu Editon Review

Netbooks are often ridiculed as a solution looking for a problem but they are also regarded as the ancestors of present day Chromebooks and “cloudbooks”. With the resurgence of these more modern but still low-performance devices, it might seem that the netbook is due for a revival as well. Or so that seems to be the proposition GPD makes with its almost literal Pocket computer. But does that make more sense now than it did before, especially in an age of powerful smartphones? We take the Ubuntu Edition of the GPD Pocket for a good and thorough testing to find out.

Surface Pro LTE models are coming in December

Surface Pro LTE models are coming in December

It's no Surface Pro 5 but, given the changes Microsoft has made, it could have very well be called one. But perhaps one of the most significant changes made to Redmond's premium 2-in-1 device is the addition of built-in LTE connectivity. That, however, was four months ago and, save for a premature preorder listing, there was nary a word about it. At Ignite 2017 this week, a company spokesperson semi-officially confirmed at least a launch date, which will take place right at the start of December.

New Windows 10 S laptops are designed for “Firstline Workers”

New Windows 10 S laptops are designed for “Firstline Workers”

When Microsoft announced Windows 10 S, it was clearly seen as an attempt to regain lost ground from Chrome OS. Especially with its focus on the education sector and Chromebook-like laptops. But just as Chrome OS and Chromebooks aren't just used in schools, Microsoft is also aiming its guns at another, and potentially more lucrative, audience: the enterprise. At its Ignite conference, Redmond announced four new Windows 10 S devices but, this time, it's specifically targeting what it calls "Firstline Workers".
