Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016) Review : Still the anti-MacBook Boss

Razer Blade Stealth (late 2016) Review : Still the anti-MacBook Boss

When I reviewed the original Razer Blade Stealth earlier this year, I suggested it was the "true MacBook alternative". I stand by that claim, and go one further: Razer has out-done Apple in one key area. At a time when Apple is taking upwards 2-3 years to bring a refresh to their MacBooks, Razer just released 2 in 1. Less than a year after release, the Razer has another Razer Blade Stealth with upgraded specs.

New MacBook Pro could have USB-C with MagSafe feature

New MacBook Pro could have USB-C with MagSafe feature

USB-C might be great and the future of connectors, but for MacBook owners, it's somewhat of a step backwards. Apple has long had a reversible port and while the USB-C finally makes that a standard everywhere, it lacks one particular MacBook feature: MagSafe. That is pretty much what fans of the MacBook Pro are dreading in Apple's upcoming press event, but famed KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo might offer them some reassurance. According to him, while the MacBook Pros will indeed use UBS-C ports only for power, they might also include a "MagSafe-like" adapter.

Apple event to focus on new MacBooks, not iMac, says analyst

Apple event to focus on new MacBooks, not iMac, says analyst

In case you haven't heard, Apple has one of its secretive media events scheduled for October 27th, using the phrase "Hello Again" as the teaser. For months now it's been expected that Apple would hold such a fall event to introduce new, non-iOS related hardware, possibly including anything from the Mac lineup, from the MacBook Air to a new Mac Pro. Well, Ming-Chi Kuo, the KGI Securities analyst with one of best track records when it comes to Apple predictions, has chimed in to say that we should keep our expectations set for new laptops only.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The road warrior’s future

I’ve been using Lenovo’s new Yoga Book the last couple of days, and it’s hard not to love this ultra-compact, sleek, and versatile tablet with a twist. This isn’t what you’d call a one trick pony, but instead a multi-talented 2-in-1 to help you stay more productive on the go. Trust me, clocking in over 250,000 air miles this year alone, I know a thing or two about staying productive on the move.

iPhone 4, MacBook Air late 2010 to obsoleted in two weeks

iPhone 4, MacBook Air late 2010 to obsoleted in two weeks

Even, or especially, good things must come to an end. While the usual turnover for smartphones and computers is usually claimed to be two years, various laws mandate that manufacturers offer parts and repairs far longer than that. That said, there’s always a hard limit to that life extension. By the end of this month, Apple will reportedly be shuffling a few of its devices over to its “vintage and obsolete” list, practically putting an end to the iPhone 4’s and late 2010 13-inch MacBook Air’s long lives.

This is the Samsung Chromebook Pro, and while it hasn't officially been announced just yet, a number of its specs and features were detailed, and it's clear that this is not the typical budget-friendly Chromebook, but a premium, high-end Chrome OS device.

How Apple’s next MacBook Pro could be the most flexible laptop ever

How Apple’s next MacBook Pro could be the most flexible laptop ever

Apple has been tipped to be speaking with Foxconn startup Sonder, a company which creates some of the strangest keyboards in the world. The keyboards Sonder makes don't look significantly different from Apple's current MacBook Pro and iMac offerings - just so long as their keys keep their standard characters. Sonder's big differentiator in keyboards is their ability to switch keys at a moment's notice using E-Ink technology.

Key Google Pixel phone details leak from China

Key Google Pixel phone details leak from China

Earlier this morning a set of specifications were leaked with Pixel and Pixel XL details we'd not seen before. These not-Nexus Android devices, also known by their code-names Sailfish and Marlin have been leaked in parts over the past several weeks, so we've gone ahead and constructed the lot together in a single article, as well. Now we'll be leaving it to the end consumer to decide if these devices are hot enough (on their own, without the details outlined in our Android promise fulfilled article) are good enough to want to upgrade from a Nexus 5X or Nexus 6P. Or if this is a completely different game from the start.

Dell Latitude 13 3000 convertible targets small businesses

Dell Latitude 13 3000 convertible targets small businesses

2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrids, whether the detachable or the convertible kind, seem to be the rage these days, as predicted by market analysts like IDC. Most of them, however, are priced “competitively”, which usually means they’re way beyond the reach of small businesses. At least that is the spiel that Dell is making with the launch of its new Latitude 13 3000 series that offers small businesses, or really anyone for that matter, a 13.3-inch laptop that turns into a tablet for a starting price of $699.
