At the top of HP's laptop line-up is the Spectre x360, a convertible 2-in-1 notebook that has recently been upgraded to Kaby Lake. For this latest model HP has also unleashed a design overhaul that makes the Spectre x360 thinner, lighter and more portable than before.
MSI's GE62 7RD Apache is an entry-level gaming notebook powered by Intel's new Core i7-7700HQ processor and a GeForce GTX 1050. It should provide budget-conscious buyers with a wallet-friendly option that's capable of playing today's games, albeit at reduced quality settings.
The Blade Stealth is smallest and sleekest laptop in Razer's line-up, boasting a 12.5-inch display and powerful yet efficient hardware. Combined with an elegant, well-constructed chassis, the Blade Stealth is a laptop that should be on your radar.
Set at 3.5GHz, the Pentium G4560 is poised to be the bargain CPU of 2017. It's only 200MHz slower than the much loved Core i3-6100, amazing news for budget shoppers who had their eye on something like the i3-6100 because the G4560 has been stamped with an MSRP of only $64.
Arriving four years after the last iteration in the series, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard shifts the traditional third-person viewpoint to the first-person, while leveraging its roots to recapture the sense of dread and suspense from the earlier games. Reviews have already started rolling in, let's check what they have to say.
Fast forward to today and we have the official introduction of Intel's 7th-generation desktop processor series. Codenamed 'Kaby Lake', the architecture is said to deliver new levels of performance courtesy of the company's latest 14nm+ process. Well, let's find out.
A tough act to follow for the competition, even for the likes of Intel, Corsair announced the Force MP500 SSD shortly after the release of the dominating Samsung 960 Series. The Force MP500 is a high-speed NVMe SSD targeting power users available in a variety of capacities: 480GB, 240GB and even a piddly 120GBer.
Like most gaming laptop manufacturers Alienware has updated their line-up to take advantage of Nvidia’s excellent GeForce 10 series graphics chips. Significantly faster than their predecessors, GeForce 10 mobile chips are as capable as their desktop counterparts, which makes modern gaming laptops first-class citizens. Up for review today is the latest Alienware 15.
Let’s get this out of the way: Final Fantasy XV is a great video game. It steers the series in a promising new direction, reveals a spectacular new world, and introduces a combat system as satisfying as any I’ve played. For all of its warts and wrinkles—and there are quite a few warts and wrinkles—Final Fantasy XV is often a thing of beauty.
Of all the ultrathin laptops I've reviewed, the ZenBook 3 is most like Apple's MacBook from a design perspective. It packs a 12.5" display, an edge-to-edge keyboard, and a single USB-C port for charging and all connectivity. Where the ZenBook pulls away from the MacBook is on the inside, packing a lot more processing punch.
We’ve already seen several solutions for mobile VR, most notably Samsung’s Gear VR and Google Cardboard. But Google is taking things to the next level with Daydream: a new virtual reality ecosystem for Android and the most compelling case for accessible VR I’ve seen to date.
What if you want a mechanical keyboard but only have $40 to spend? With the market now flooded with loads of Cherry MX knock-off switches, this has enabled companies to develop very affordable mechanical keyboards. One such case is the GranVela MechanicalEagle Z-77, available on Amazon for as little as $35.
It isn't often that we see Nvidia being so aggressive in the entry-level segment and historically they've seemed happy to let AMD take the hit on margins here. Driving the sub-$150 GeForce GTX 1050 is the newly developed GP107 GPU that is more powerful than anything we've tested before on this price range.
Samsung's next generation solid state drives are poised to become must-haves among enthusiasts. The 960 Pro that we are reviewing today succeeds what was already a fast drive with last year's award-winning 950 Pro. Surprise, surprise: the new SSD 960 Pro is even faster.
The Yoga Book is one of the most attractive pieces of hardware I’ve used this year. Lenovo is aiming for the best of both worlds: a compact tablet that’s easy to hold and transport; and an on-the-go laptop that isn’t hindered by an awkward dock. But going from concept to actual product, how well does it work?
I’ve been using Sony's PlayStation VR for the better part of a week and have played a handful of the games that will be available at launch. I’ve been impressed by some things, turned off by others, and made nauseous by a few. Throughout that time I’ve also been disappointed. Read on for the full review.
The Dell UltraSharp 4K UP3216Q is one hell of a monitor, period. Albeit a premium priced affair, what you get is a flexible, wide-gamut display with astounding image quality that'll surely be the envy of all who lay eyes on it.
The biggest thing to happen to gaming laptops this year is the launch of Nvidia's GeForce 10 series. Case in point, the new Asus ROG G752VS is a massive 17" G-Sync enabled system that packs a GTX 1070 GPU, an overclocked Core i7 CPU, 64 GB of memory, a terabyte PCIe SSD + HDD, and more, much more.
There are plenty of large phones to choose from these days: the iPhone 7 Plus, the Galaxy Note 7, the OnePlus 3, and many others that feature displays at least 5.5-inches in size. But nothing compares to the Xiaomi Mi Max, a gigantic 6.4-inch phablet that dwarfs what most people carry with them. This phone is, quite simply, ridiculously large.
Initially just a rumor, the 3GB version of the GTX 1060 is now something you can buy starting at $200 -- but should you? It comes down to the games you play, the resolution you run them at and how picky you are about quality settings.
Kingston jumped on the gaming peripheral bandwagon in 2014, launching the well regarded HyperX Cloud headset with others following since. The company is now ready to take their next step into gaming peripherals with the HyperX Alloy FPS mechanical keyboard.
The HTC One X9 is a classic example of a mid-range handset. It has marginally better hardware than budget offerings - a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Helio X10 SoC, 32 GB of storage, a 13-megapixel camera with OIS, and a metal build - but it just doesn't do enough for the price. It's not a terrible phone, but it's simply too expensive.
In Deus Ex's vision of the future, unchecked technological advancement has thrown the world into disarray as multinational corporations have grown as powerful as governments. (I know, I can't believe it either.) It's the year 2029 and breakthroughs in bioengineering have allowed humans to augment themselves with cybernetic implants... read the full review.
No Man’s Sky is an unusual and contradictory game, one that asks very little of its players while simultaneously demanding a great deal. It’s a frustrating failure in many ways, technically unpolished and seemingly unfinished. No Man’s Sky reaches for the sun and comes back with a light bulb. I’m pretty much fine with the light bulb.
In the past we’ve had no trouble recommending the Moto G for those after a fantastic budget smartphone. In 2016, Motorola has expanded the Moto G line and the $250 Moto G4 Plus is the most fully featured of the bunch. It shares the same display, SoC and design with the basic Moto G4 but upgrades the camera and includes a fingerprint sensor.
