This is the sort of laptop hikers bring with on an adventure. This is a notebook made for getting dirty and wet.

The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

The Android PC – Revisiting mobile productivity

Last week we took the iPad Pro again for a spin, trying to verify, or refute, Apple's claims about the tablet being the ultimate PC replacement. And just in time, the company just released a video ad just few days ago that tries to make the same point again. But iOS is hardly the only game in town, especially on mobile. And while Google hasn't exactly made a similar claim for Android, others have spoken for it instead. But before go off on another crazy adventure, we first have to look at the few, of course unofficial, attempts at making Android the ultimate PC replacement, as far as OS is concerned at least. Yes, this is the so-called "Android PC".

Dell XPS 12 Two-in-One Laptop Review

Consumers are increasingly gravitating toward so-called "convertible" laptops -- that is, tablets that attach to a keyboard, giving users the best of both worlds. Dell's new XPS 12 is no exception, at least not in terms of its foundational design: it has a folio cover, magnetic keyboard, detachable tablet, and stylus. We've seen all that before, and we'll see it again. The finer details are what makes or breaks a new offering, of course, and so we've spent a couple weeks putting Dell's new two-in-one through the wringer. Spoiler: the results are largely great.

Superbook blasts through Kickstarter to turn phones into laptops

That went by really quick. Superbook, the "thin" shell that practically converts your Android smartphone into a laptop has zoomed past its crowdfunding goal in less than 12 hours. Unsurprising given its $99 base pledge. Not so small a feat either in comparison to the team's previous crowdfunding attempt with almost the same goals, albeit with a dock limited to certain smartphone models. With funding now secured and more still coming in, all that's left is to see if they will be able to deliver, on time or not, unlike so many other failed similar promises.
