Razer Project Linda hands-on: Android phone-powered notebook

This week we're taking a look at the Razer Phone taken to a new universe. This is the Razer Project Linda, a laptop (or notebook, whatever you prefer,) made to house the Razer Phone. This device does nothing without the phone, but with it, it becomes a fully functional Android-based notebook computer. For the moment, this remains a concept design - but there is a chance it could be made into a real-deal consumer product in the near future.

Lenovo has revealed its first Windows-on-ARM ultraportable, the Lenovo Miix 630, running Windows 10 S on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 835. One of a small handful of machines that eschew x86 processors from Intel or AMD in favor of the sort of low-power silicon that you'd more typically expect to find inside a smartphone, Lenovo's newest 2-in-1 uses that power frugality to good advantage.

HP recalls notebook batteries because of overheating [UPDATE]

It’s a bad start to the year for the PC industry. It kicked off with the damning revelation of critical vulnerabilities that affect almost all CPUs, from Intel to ARM, made in the last decade.

The computer maker has just announced a recall of its lithium-ion batteries powering quite a number of its notebooks and mobile workstations because of their potential to become fire hazards.

Samsung detachable Chromebook to have a phone-grade camera

There are just some hardware features on devices that don’t always make sense in the grander scheme of things. Features like second screens on phones, rotating cameras, or high-end cameras on tablets. That, of course, hasn’t stopped manufacturers from banging their head on the wall. And it seems that Samsung will be the latest one to do so. Its still unannounced detachable 2-in-1 Chromebook, codenamed “Nautilus”, is expected to come with very premium features, including a more or less premium Sony image sensor that will probably be rarely used.

New Dell XPS 13 goes white

New Dell XPS 13 goes white

Aside from gaming laptops, which are still predominantly black with some LED lighting highlights, majority of today's laptops that aren’t MacBooks often go with darker shades of colors. This has practical benefits, including making smudges and dirt that accumulate over time not so obvious at first glance. But depending on your tastes, those dark colors might not be fashionable. So this year, Dell is doing something different. This year, it will not only put a fashionable rose gold color on the XPS 13’s back. It will also be painting its insides white.
