HP debuts new Pavilion lineup at Coachella

HP debuts new Pavilion lineup at Coachella

HP is back today with a new round of Pavilion laptops, but where it chose to reveal these notebooks may come as something of a surprise. Instead of announcing them at some technology trade show, HP instead chose to bring them to Coachella, the annual music and arts festival that goes down in the Colorado Desert. The desert may seem like a bad place to set up a stand and show off your delicate computing hardware, but HP actually has a pretty good marketing idea behind this decision.

2017 LG Gram notebooks get a boost to battery life

LG has a new series of Gram notebooks for 2017, and it's launching these six different models with two key areas of focus: weight and battery life. As the name would suggest, LG Gram notebooks are designed to be lightweight, with every entry in the family coming in at just over two pounds. You might think that a slim and lightweight form factor wouldn't necessarily go well with long battery life, but LG seems to have found a compromise it's happy with in the new LG Grams.

This is Microsoft’s wish-list for 2017 Windows PCs

Microsoft is plotting a big Windows 10 push for 2017, and in order for it to succeed, the company will need the help of its OEM and ODM partners.

At its WinHEC 2016 conference in Shenzen last December, Microsoft outlined its vision for the modern PC, and it just recently made the video of that presentation available online.

Microsoft is about to fix Windows laptops’ biggest frustration

The gloves are off with future Windows notebooks, so says Microsoft and their hardware requirements for Windows 10. This month at the WinHEC event in Shenzhen, China, Microsoft said that future touchpads would need to be far more precise than previous Windows machines. Instead of touchpads that far under-perform compared to the top models, future machines will need to have Precision Touchpads right out the gate.

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?
