This newest wave of Flex notebooks has "new narrow bezels" as well as what Lenovo describes as "enhanced design" - as well as the newest in graphics and processing power.

Apple still can’t accept iMac pro users might want touch

Apple still can’t accept iMac pro users might want touch

Don't tell Microsoft Surface Studio owners, but Apple still doesn't think touch has any place on computers targeting pro users. The Cupertino firm confirmed today that it's working on new iMac all-in-ones that will specifically target the high-performance requirements of professional users. However, the machines still won't cede any ground on Apple's long-standing refusal to countenance touch displays in anything other than its iOS line-up.

Part tiny PC, part tablet: Ockel Sirius A is 6-inches of Windows 10

Part tiny PC, part tablet: Ockel Sirius A is 6-inches of Windows 10

Small form-factor PCs aren't new, but Ockel is pushing the envelope with the Sirius A, a full touchscreen Windows 10 computer compact enough to fit your hand. At the opposite extreme to vast touch-enabled All-in-Ones like Microsoft's Surface Studio, the Sirius A instead aims for the ultra-compact end of the spectrum. That opens up some really interesting possibilities.

Dell Canvas hands-on: Surface Studio gets a slick art rival

Dell Canvas hands-on: Surface Studio gets a slick art rival

Dell may be one of Microsoft's closest Windows partners, but that didn't stop it bringing along some Surface Studio competition to CES today. The Dell Canvas may not have a built-in computer like Microsoft's posable all-in-one, but pair it with a Windows notebook - and, optionally, a second display - and you have the art hub any Photoshop pro could be proud of. I stopped by to rub my grubby fingers all over it.

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?

Nintendo Switch does have a multi-touch screen, say sources

Nintendo Switch does have a multi-touch screen, say sources

Nintendo’s new console handheld hybrid is shaping up to be quite the dreamy gaming device. And it’s also starting to look like a customized NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet (which is probably why the chip maker hasn’t launched a new one yet). One of the biggest questions about the device has just been answered, by anonymous sources no less. So yes, the Nintendo Switch will apparently sport a touch screen, but a rather middling one. But it’s not your DS or Wii U touch screen, mind you, as, for the first time in Nintendo’s history, it will support multiple touch points.

Nintendo remains quiet on whether Switch features touchscreen display

Nintendo remains quiet on whether Switch features touchscreen display

As you've no doubt heard by now, Nintendo announced its new Switch game console this week, a hybrid device that serves as both a portable and home system. Unfortunately, that announcement came in the form of a three-and-a-half minute video and little else, with Nintendo keeping quiet on additional details not revealed in the teaser clip, and instead promising additional info later. One of the key questions we're left with, then, is whether the Switch's display is a touchscreen.

iPhone 7 uses an onscreen Home button if the physical one stops working

Apple's new iPhone 7 features a solid-state Home button instead of one with physical movement; you've likely already heard all about this, along with the potential inconveniences that can come up if there's no physical contact with the Touch ID sensor. But what's new here is the iOS 10's software solution in the event the Home button stops working. What happens if the button is non-responsive — how do you use the phone? Via a temporary on-screen Home button.

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.

iPhone 7’s Home button requires skin contact to function

If you've paying any attention to all the recent iPhone 7 news, you've heard that the Home button on Apple's latest device has stopped being a physical button, and is now a pressure-sensitive touch surface that uses vibration to simulate an actual press. Now customers are getting their hands on the iPhone 7, one of the newly discovered drawbacks about this redesigned Home button is that it requires skin contact in order for a press to be recognized.
