Asus’ new gaming laptop is so fast it needs a water-cooling system

As the proud owner of a powerful and unwieldy Republic of Gamers laptop from Asus, I can say that the extra heft has been worth the ability to play the latest and greatest games over the past few years on the highest settings. But as difficult as my laptop is to lug around, I don’t think it even begins to compare with this monster. More →

Toshiba has a crazy Retina MacBook killer: 4K 12.5-inch display, USB-C and Windows 10

Apple’s 12-inch Retina MacBook is a head-turner, in spite of its perceived lack of performance (and perceived lack of ports). The ultra-portable laptop comes with a high-resolution display that’s even better than the MacBook Air’s screen. The brand new design, made possible by Intel’s increasingly smaller and more power-efficient chips, inspired other companies to come up with similar creations, and Toshiba just unveiled an impressive new Retina MacBook killer.

So long, Surface: Lenovo’s Surface Pro clone is the Windows hybrid we’ve been waiting for

When Microsoft went up against its own Windows hardware partners and launched the Surface line of laptop/tablet hybrids, pundits weren’t sure what to make of the move.

Of course, anyone who is even the least bit familiar with the amount of work involved with bringing a new product like this to market knew that notion was ridiculous: As of the moment that the first Surface tablets debuted, Microsoft officially became a PC vendor.

The Surface line has since grown into a more respectable business for Microsoft thanks to the lineup’s iconic design that’s portable yet perfect for productivity. Now, however, Lenovo has unveiled a device that is essentially a clone of Microsoft’s latest Surface tablets, but it is significantly more affordable. More →
