Chuwi MiniBook Review: Big potential with small problems

Netbooks may have been short-lived but their legacy lives on in quite a number of different kinds of computing devices. On one side, Chromebooks share the same cloud-centric DNA, this time defined by Google’s platform based on what is essentially a web browser on steroids. On another side, a breed of mini-laptops have popped up, perhaps inspired by the dream of portability that Netbooks once promised. Some may scoff at their diminutive size but a niche market has proven it can be profitable though with proportionally small margins.

MacBook butterfly keyboard lawsuit will proceed after all

MacBook butterfly keyboard lawsuit will proceed after all

Apple may have finally changed back (or changed forward) to a more familiar keyboard mechanism in its new MacBook Pro but that doesn't change the past one bit. It is also not enough, apparently, to save the company from having to fight a class-action suit hurled against it over its previous "butterfly" keyboards.
