How a new MacBook could reinvent the laptop

How a new MacBook could reinvent the laptop

Today we're taking a real Apple invention and hypothetically applying it to a real Apple product. What we're doing is having a look at a patent made by Apple - a new sort of hinge design for the MacBook. This new hinge could change the way you and I use a notebook and, potentially, blow the rest of the industry away completely.

GPD Pocket is a 7-inch Windows 10, Ubuntu “laptop”

GPD Pocket is a 7-inch Windows 10, Ubuntu “laptop”

GPD, short for GamePad Digital, is a strange beast. More known, in small circles, for its Android-based gaming handhelds, the China-based company last year dabbled in crowdfunding to get GPD WIN, a Nintendo DS-like Windows 10 handheld, out the door. That campaign, those successfully funded and, to some extent, delivered, the campaign received mixed reactions, some of them very vocal, in a negative sense. That hasn’t stopped GPD from trying again and dreaming bigger, this time with the GPD Pocket that’s aimed at more “fashionable” serious workers.

Here’s how you can make your own Razer Project Valerie

While the jury is still out on the practicality or absurdity of a laptop with three screens, it's a commonly held belief that productivity is proportional to the number of screens you have. Or not. Be that as it may, you may have developed a certain envy for Razer's Project Valerie prototype, which may never become a real product. Fret not, because JerryRigEverything has just shared how you can make your own DIY Project Valerie laptop for not more than $300.

MacBook Pro Touch Bar is barred from NC bar exams

MacBook Pro Touch Bar is barred from NC bar exams

Yes, it is a pun disaster in the making. When Apple designed the hi-tech Touch Bar for its higher end MacBook Pros, it probably didn’t imagine the insane things people would do with them. Like playing a round of first-person shooter Doom on it. It probably also never imagined it would be used as a tool for cheating. And yet that it exactly the presumption that states across the country are making in issuing announcements that instruct bar exam takers to disable their MacBook Pro’s feature.

Lenovo has a new flexible laptop in its Yoga lineup, the Yoga 710 15-inch convertible.

That flexibility is welcomed, but how does the laptop as a whole hold up to everyday usage?

This $800 MacBook Air clone wants to be the Nexus of Linux laptops

"Put Linux on it" may often be the solution to a sluggish old laptop, but what if you want to go open-source from the outset? That's the market the KDE Slimbook is looking to address, a new 13.3-inch notebook running the Ubuntu-based KDE neon operating system. The aim is out-of-the-box usability, with none of the driver headaches or setup woes that can sometimes come with repurposing a Windows or Mac machine.

Acer’s TravelMate Spin B1 notebook offers durability for students

Today Acer unveiled the next entry in its TravelMate line of notebooks. The TravelMate Spin B1 is a convertible notebook that's targeted at commercial customers and students, mostly because of its ruggedness and support for Windows Ink through the included stylus.

Intel Compute Card will power NexDock’s next “thin” laptop

Intel Compute Card will power NexDock’s next “thin” laptop

At CES 2017 earlier this month, Intel unveiled something new yet something also familiar, a nearly complete computer board just a little larger than a credit card. Intel wants its new Compute Card to be the dockable brain of future devices, including smart appliances. NexDock, the people behind a more or less successful crowdfunded device of the same name, is taking that brain and putting it inside its next ambitious project, which, unsurprisingly, is another NexDock.

Xbox One S laptop made real, courtesy of Ben Heck

Benjamin “Ben” Heck might be best known for tearing things apart, but he also leaves an army of rebuilt, modded, and re-designed gadgets in his wake. The latest to get the privilege of being reincarnated in a new body is the Xbox One S, which Heck tore down late last year. Feeling uninspired to put it all back together again, Humpty Dumpty style, he decided to put it instead into the most portable form for a gaming console. And thus the Xbox One S laptop was born!
