You may be able to ignore or even break the laws of man, but the laws of (Newtonian) physics are not to be trifled with. Such laws put a limit on how much processing power we can cram into physical spaces before they turn into incendiary weapons. So when a laptop such as the new EVGA SC17 is bequeathed one of the fastest graphics cards in the desktop market, there is reason to be awed and floored.

Windows 10 S devices now available, but you can test it too

Last May, Microsoft both disappointed power users but also pleased the education sector with its announcement of Windows 10 S. This version of Windows 10 has been locked down for school use and designed to run even on low-powered notebooks. Three months later, Microsoft is finally making such devices available for both academic institutions and consumers to buy. But if you’re just curious to see if Windows 10 S is even worth its salt, you can do install it on your existing Windows 10 Pro system as well.

Lenovo Miix 320 Review: a tiny $200 Windows 2-in-1 Laptop

Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

Microsoft Surface Laptop Review: The anti-MacBook Pro

Microsoft knows how to make sleek hardware. If the Surface Book is handsome but bulky, and the Surface Pro is more minimalistic but suffers a less-compelling keyboard, then the Surface Laptop falls happily in-between. You don't get a fancy detachable display, no, or even a 360-degree hinge. Instead, it's a neatly finished, beguiling traditional laptop form-factor with some eminently pleasing material decisions.

Dell Latitude 12 7285 comes bearing wireless charging support

Although wireless charging has been around for years, it isn’t still a staple of modern life, particularly with smartphones. That might suddenly change if Apple jumps into the fray as rumored. Perhaps trying to get a lead on others, Dell is bringing wireless charging capability to a device you might expect the least: a 2-in-1 laptop. Dell has just launched the Latitude 7000 12 7285, touted as the worlds first 2-in-1 to support wireless charging, though in a rather odd way.
