Don’t buy this new Surface Book

Microsoft has quietly added a new Surface Book to its line-up, but even with higher performance it's hard to recommend the $3,000 2-in-1.

That's despite it having some of the highest specifications we've seen from the hybrid 2-in-1 to-date.

That's the market the KDE Slimbook is looking to address, a new 13.3-inch notebook running the Ubuntu-based KDE neon operating system. The aim is out-of-the-box usability, with none of the driver headaches or setup woes that can sometimes come with repurposing a Windows or Mac machine.

Razer Project Valerie hands-on at CES 2017: 3-screen laptop gaming is here

The Razer Project Valerie laptop has three displays - and all three are really, truly dedicated to gaming. Each of these displays is connected to the base computer, creating a laptop that's thicker than the company's standard Razer Blade, but all the more versatile as a result. While this notebook isn't the sort we'll be trusting around clumsy miscreants while engaged, the hardware used to make this project a reality is well worth the gander.

Both versions of the Samsung Notebook Oyssey work with light-up keys, a "HexaFlow Vent," and 7th-generation Intel Core i7 processors.
