Laptop Review

Lenovo’s Yoga 9i is the new flagship convertible of the company’s mainstream consumer line. It’s an excellent product with a 16:10 OLED touchscreen, but at the moment, it’s difficult to find in stock. The ultraportable space is a crowded one, including long-renowned models like the Microsoft Surface Pro 8, the Dell XPS 13, and the HP Spectre x360 14. These are all excellent laptops that aren’t extravagantly priced, with the potential to appeal

Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo OLED review: a dual-screen laptop that works

The Asus Zenbook Pro 14 Duo has a second screen on its keyboard deck. It’s not the first two-screen laptop Asus has tried, but it’s definitely the best one so far. Asus did it. It’s made a dual-screen laptop that — and there was a time when I never thought I’d be saying these words — is actually pretty good. Asus has been doing this dual-screen form factor for a while, and parts of the $1,999.99-and

Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 review: hot specs and hot air

Asus returns with another high-end 16-inch laptop aimed at creators that bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor. This model brings some improved hardware to the table but not much else. The Asus ROG Zephyrus M16 from last year was a sharp laptop that stumbled a bit in terms of performance thanks largely to its Intel CPU. While the lightweight form factor was a plus, we were ultimately disappointed with the overall performance

Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 (15-inch) review: a light and bright convertible

Samsung’s new Galaxy Book Pro 360 is an excellent 15-inch 2-in-1 from Samsung. It’s incredibly portable, with an OLED screen and excellent battery life. Light chassis, great screen. That’s the entirety of what you sign up for when you buy a Samsung Galaxy Book. They are not the most powerful laptops out there, and they’re not what I’d recommend people be issued for, say, work. But for those

Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro review: big screen for the mainstream

Lenovo’s IdeaPad Slim 7 Pro is a new big-screen addition to its (relatively speaking) affordable business line. It’s not without flaws, and it’s hard to find in stock, but it offers good specs and a great screen for a fairly low price. I recently reviewed the Gigabyte Aero 16, a 16-inch Intel-powered workstation with a powerful GPU. It was hot, heavy, expensive, and had… little in the way of battery life. The 16-inch laptop category has traditionally been dominated by those

Asus ROG Strix Scar 17: powerful, brash, derivative

The 2022 version of Asus’ ROG Strix Scar 17 laptop delivers the latest Intel 12th Gen processors and Nvidia’s RTX 3070 Ti graphics card, among a few other changes. It’s fast and relatively affordable — if you can get past the flashy design. Asus always finds a way to surprise me. It’s a company that can produce the elegant ROG Zephyrus G14 and G15 gaming laptops — up there with the best in the business in terms of design and thinness. It can also make the Flow Z13, a thin gaming

Gigabyte Aero 16 review: a workstation that can game (kind of)

If you’re looking for a workstation that can handle creative applications and also run a game or two, Gigabyte’s Aero 16 is a fair candidate. But it’s also quite expensive, and there are cheaper options out there. Gigabyte’s Aero is a model the company has long touted as a creator-specific line. I’ve always been a bit skeptical there. Gigabyte is known far and wide as a gaming company, and Aero models, despite their branding, tend not to look too

Microsoft Surface Laptop SE review: just get a Chromebook

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop SE is a nice-looking 11.17-inch Windows laptop geared towards education. Its processor, while slow, is adequate for elementary school work. But the small screen may prove a problem for some students. When I review a particularly ugly Windows laptop, I’ll often refer to it as having a “laptop cart” look. If you were a student at any point after the early 2000s, you probably understand why. The laptops that schools provide to elementary and

Asus’ ROG Flow Z13 is a Surface Pro that’s got game

The Asus ROG Flow Z13 is a gaming tablet that looks like a Surface Pro, but it can run many games at playable frame rates. It’s not an affordable device, and it can’t run demanding games well, but it’s an impressive effort. The influence is obvious. Asus wants you to think of Microsoft’s Surface Pro when you see the ROG Flow Z13. It’s a Windows 11 tablet with a magnetic keyboard, a kickstand, and small bezels surrounding its 120Hz refresh rate display. Those

The Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 offers 10 percent faster CPU performance, 10 percent faster GPU clocks, and uses 15 percent less power than Qualcomm’s previous flagship chip. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 set the stage for the biggest Android smartphones of 2022, including Samsung’s flagship Galaxy — but it’s about to be surpassed by a better “Plus” version that’ll no doubt appear in
