Remix IO+ adds more hardware, price to Jide’s Android mini PC

Remix IO+ adds more hardware, price to Jide’s Android mini PC

It has been barely a two weeks since Jide launched yet another Kickstarter campaign to fund what is perhaps its most ambitious Android device. Aiming to be desktop computer, entertainment center, and gaming console “in one” (hence, “IO”), the Remix IO was welcomed not only with overwhelming support but also an incessant request: offer something better. After polling the crowd, Jide has come up with the Remix IO+, with more RAM, more CPU, more storage, and, of course, more costs.

Alienware 13 is a VR-ready laptop packed in 13 inches

Alienware 13 is a VR-ready laptop packed in  13 inches

Unless you’re already satisfied with smartphone-powered experiences like the Gear VR or Google Daydream, virtual reality requires a sizable investment, both in terms of cash as well as literal equipment sizes. The power needed to drive things like the Oculus Rift of HTC Vive usually requires hulking desktops or more portable but still hulking laptops. Trying to buck the trend, Dell is launching the new Alienware 13 line that boasts of being the first VR-ready notebook to come in less than 14 inches.

The Best All-in-One Desktop Computers of 2016

The Best All-in-One Desktop Computers of 2016

PCs aren't dead. They've just taken a different form. From PC sticks to mini PCs to 2-in-1 PCs, personal computing is becoming even more diverse as we move away from the traditional tower form factor. One of the oldest "alternative" PC forms is the all-in-one or AIO that brings display and processing unit together under one roof. The AIO market has received no small interest this year, and is about to get even more interesting thanks to Microsoft's recent reveal. If you're in the market for one, especially with holiday sales coming up, you might want to take a peek at some of the choicest picks of all-in-one computers this year.

How Surface Studio takes on iMac in 5 steps

The Microsoft Surface Studio was revealed this morning in a presentation that may be making Apple apprehensive. You see, Apple has an event taking place tomorrow, and they'll be revealing their own machines. It's likely Apple will have a set of new MacBook Pro units ready for the public then. But for now, Microsoft is attempting to get in while the getting is good.

Microsoft Surface Studio AIO goes toe-to-toe with iMac

Microsoft today announced a new device in the Surface lineup, introducing the world to the Surface Studio.

First and foremost is the 28-inch PixelSense display, which offers support for over a billion different colors.

Surface Studio AIO, Dial remote queued for Microsoft event

Surface Studio AIO, Dial remote queued for Microsoft event

In less than 48 hours, Microsoft will be holding a press event where it is expected to unveil a new generation of Surface devices. While it’s pretty much expected that there will be no new smartphone to grace the stage, that doesn’t necessarily mean things won’t be interesting, especially given recent trademarks just filed by Microsoft. While a Surface Laptop and a Paint 3D might not be so groundbreaking, the Surface Studio and Surface Dial names are definitely something worth taking note of.

Remix IO takes the Android PC idea to a whole new level

Remix IO takes the Android PC idea to a whole new level

Jide has made a name for itself for pushing Android to the desktop, in places and ways that Google may not necessarily approve of. Although it is hardly the only one to do so, no other startup or project can boast of the hardware, software, and business that Jide enjoys. Spurred by that success, it is taking yet another stab at the Android PC market, but this time with a slightly different bent. One that bundles PC, TV, and console in one small package: the Remix IO, or Remix In One.

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Samsung ArtPC Pulse arrives with a slightly modular idea

Tempting fate, not to mention courts and lawyers, once again, Samsung has officially taken off the covers its self-described stylish desktop PC, the ArtPC Pulse. And it’s pretty much as we heard and seen it to be, including that oddly familiar cylindrical design. Of course, Samsung would argue how the ArtPC Pulse is so radically different in design as well as features. And, to some extent, it might be right, as the canister PC does have one thing Apple’s equivalent doesn’t: a somewhat modular design.

Vensmile K8 puts a PC inside a flexible keyboard

Vensmile K8 puts a PC inside a flexible keyboard

We’ve seen our fair share of keyboards that practically hide computers inside them, whether a full-fledged mini PC or a Raspberry Pi hack. We’ve also seen all sorts of foldable, flexible, even rollable keyboards that maximize mobility. But a flexible keyboard that hides a computer? That’s definitely a first. And that is exactly what a company by the name of Vensmile is attempting to sell. Simply called the K8, the product packages productivity in a more portable form. Too bad it doesn’t have package a display with it as well.

ASUS Transform Mini 2-in-1 goes up for pre-order

ASUS Transform Mini 2-in-1 goes up for pre-order

The unexpected success of Microsoft’s Surface tablets inspired OEMs to give the nascent 2-in-1 form factor their own spin. But some manufacturers aren’t too shy about being inspired by the same design as well. The ASUS Transformer Mini, formally the Transformer Book T102HA, unabashedly looks like a Microsoft Surface, close enough to a non-Pro Surface 3. But ASUS’ Windows 10 tablet, which is now available for pre-order, has a few things over Microsoft’s flagship tablets. It is, on paper, lighter, not to mention a whole lot cheaper too.
