MacBook Pro vs Razer Blade Pro: stranger things have happened

MacBook Pro vs Razer Blade Pro: stranger things have happened

The strangest thing happened yesterday: Apple released a MacBook Pro with a feature I'd have expected from a company like Razer. While Razer just released their own Razer Blade Pro with a 17-inch display and highest-end gear inside, the MacBook Pro had a new, extra display. This display has touch capabilities working with a variety of apps, and will be ready for games (and such) soon. Does this mean that Apple is taking more chances than the proprietors of the gaming cult?

New MacBook Pro 13 first look: Entry-level Touch Bar envy

New MacBook Pro 13 first look: Entry-level Touch Bar envy

After a long - some might say interminable - wait, Apple’s new MacBook Pro is here, and it’s proving to be controversial. Unveiled this week is the Cupertino firm’s vision of how touch and notebooks can co-exist, and it’s a very different interpretation compared to the 2-in-1’s and convertibles we’ve seen in Windows land. Not all the new MacBook Pro models are created equal, however, and it’s the new, $1,499 entry-level model which has landed first on the SlashGear test bench.

New MacBook Pro hands-on

New MacBook Pro hands-on

Somehow both familiar and fresh, the new MacBook Pro is more than the sum of its parts: there's some witchcraft in here, too. I've spent some hands-on time with Apple's new flagship notebook, just announced at the company's Cupertino HQ in California today, and it's the upgrade many Mac users have been waiting with middling degrees of patience. More importantly, it feels like the final piece of Apple's argument against touchscreen notebooks and 2-in-1s.

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.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: The road warrior’s future

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.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 Review: surprising power in a big package

Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 Review: surprising power in a big package

I've always found it difficult to wrap my head around gaming laptops, and when I first opened the Lenovo IdeaPad Y900 notebook, I didn't think my feelings were going to change. I found myself almost immediately wondering why I would use such a bulky laptop when I have my own gaming desktop at home. Still, there's more to a computer than its size, and once I really dug in and got to playing around with it, there were a few things that caught me by surprise. The question then was whether the IdeaPad Y900 was enough to change my opinion on gaming laptops, or if I'd end the review process with the same opinions I had at the start.

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.
