GPD WIN Max shown running The Witcher 3 thanks to 10th Gen Intel Core CPU

Technology and manufacturing have truly come a long way if an 8-inch "laptop" can run AAA games. At least that's the idea that China-based GPD (GamePad Digital) is trying to make with its biggest and most ambitious product to date. The GPD WIN Max aims to combine the best of both worlds in a small size and while the demonstration might be impressive, there is still one important question that remains unaddressed.

That's where GPD's upcoming WIN Max is going to come in but its official specs make you feel that there will be a catch or two.

GPD Win Max is a curious cross between mini laptop and handheld console

GPD Win Max is a curious cross between mini laptop and handheld console

Despite the recorded downward slope in PC sales, the PC market has been quite an exciting one in terms of new technologies and form factors. It isn't just about foldables or dual screen computers either, as a couple of Chinese manufacturers have created and cornered a new market for smaller form computers. Somewhat ironically or perhaps inevitably, these mini laptops are becoming larger and larger and the upcoming GPD Win Max could be the logical and a bit comical next stage in that evolution.

Refurbished 16-inch MacBook Pros are now available

The new 16-inch MacBOok Pro is the answer to every MacBook Pro owner's prayer in almost all ways but one. It finally returns the old reliable scissors switches under the new Magic Keyboard moniker and introduced a new 16-inch sweetspot between existing MacBook Pro sizes. The only drawback, however, was the price that started at $2,400. Those who have held off buying one, however, may now have a bit of a reprieve now that Apple is selling refurbished MacBooks just three months after they first launched.

iPad Pro Smart Keyboard could soon have backlit scissor keys

Forget the AirPods and the Mac Pro Cheese Grater. Apple's most reviled product may not have been a distinct product but a component instead. Fortunately, it seems that the company is ready to put its butterfly switches behind it and is spreading the good news of good old scissor switches. In fact, it may even spread that to a rather unexpected recipient, the iPad Pro. Hopefully not before it comes to other MacBooks first.

HP Chromebook 11, x360 11, and 14 get an education-centric refresh

After what seems like a period of slumber, Chromebooks are making headlines again. Part of that is thanks to the recent premium models announced at CES earlier this month, like the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. The other part is thanks to a reinvigorated campaign to push Chromebooks to schools and students.
