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

People love cheap, usable notebooks. Rewind a decade or so and 'netbooks' were just becoming a hot item. Things like the Sony Vaio P existed. Consumers gobbled them up, and though the market as a whole eventually moved on from the ultra-tiny laptop trend, the fact remains that a portable, inexpensive laptop is almost always a desirable option to have. Thus enters Lenovo's new budget-friendly 2-in-1 Miix 320 convertible 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.

Lenovo teases bendable, voice-controlled laptop concept

Although Lenovo, even after its Motorola acquisition, is finding difficulty securing a foothold in the mobile market, it remains the world's top PC vendor, especially when it comes to laptops.

At its Lenovo Transform event in New York, Lenovo revealed one of its possible future experiments, a laptop that can be folded, rolled, and bended, and doesn't have a trackpad. Lenovo calls it the "Future of Personalized Computing".

While the Surface Laptop is a thing of beauty, there are a few things that make it somewhat less appealing. There's the rather exorbitant price tag for a computer aimed at students. There's also the rather disappointing repairability score iFixit recently discovered. And then there's the one way ticket from the limited environs of Windows 10 S to the full power of Windows 10 Pro. Now at least one of those problems has been solved. And, no, it's not the price.
