The 2019 Huawei MateBook X Pro Is Still the Better MacBook Pro with Windows

When Huawei released the original MateBook X Pro last year, I’m not entirely sure the company knew what it had created. Huawei has only been in the laptop business for about three years, a relatively short time compared to industry veterans like Apple, Dell, Lenovo and others. So when it made a premium 14-inch laptop…Read more...

What’s the best laptop screen size for poor eyesight?

Chris wants to know if a Windows laptop with a 17in screen would be easier for his ‘pensioner eyes’For home use, would a 17in Full HD laptop screen be better or worse than a 13in or 14in model? Will the clarity and crispness be better for my pensioner eyes? ChrisAccording to my pensioner eyes, clarity and crispness are less important than size. And in one of life’s little ironies, increasing the resolution of a screen, to make things look crisper, leads directly to a decrease in size. Continue r...

This Microsoft Ultrabook converts into a gaming workstation with the reinforcer dock!

The Microsoft XYV concept beautifully bridges the gap between immensely capable gaming laptops and the conveniently thin media laptops. In the ever-adapting world of laptops, if you want a laptop that carries desktop-level of performance, it’s likely that you will have to compromise on both aesthetics and practicality, which is far from ideal when using the laptop in a more conventional and casual manner, where a thinner laptop would be more suited.The Microsoft XYV concept is a sleek and compac...

At the very center is a bulbous volume forms the bulk of the mouse, the part your palm rests on, while the rest of the mouse skirts around the side. This side-skirt essentially works as a cushion for the base of your palm, promising to give your hand a comfortable place to rest as you operate the mouse. The mouse’s finish looks like blackened cork too, so you’ve essentially got yourself a mouse that is...

You Probably Missed This Major Battery Recall Because of the Government Shutdown

Even though the government shutdown ended more than a month and a half ago, we’re still feeling its effects. That’s because, despite HP issuing an expansion for a battery recall back in January, the notice wasn’t posted to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) website until earlier this week due to the…Read more...

The Windows OS is perfect for gadgets with folding displays

Think about it. We’ve been using Windows with large screens almost all our life. It still remains the most popular desktop/laptop OS, used by people of all ages, and even though Google’s ChromeOS and Apple’s MacOS are strong contenders, there’s a certain framework that Windows uses that’s universal. A start button and taskbar at the bottom, files and folders appearing as windows that can be minimized and maximized, and a screen that’s conducive to power-usage and multitasking. Windows is the per...

HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) review

HP’s updated Spectre x360 13 is dubbed “gem-cut” for a reason. It looks like a gem cutter went to work on the chassis, and the result is glorious.

Microsoft’s flattest, most flexible, functional mouse yet

Curved when you want, flat when you need, the Arc Surface mouse by Microsoft follows a format it set a long time ago. The mouse comes as a flat, remote-ish shape and can bend/curve/arc into an ergonomic mouse when needed. When you’re done, the mouse unfolds and becomes flat again.The Arc Surface mouse, however, has a key difference that makes it rather useful and advanced. It ditches the clicking keys and scroll wheel for a touch surface, much like Apple’s Magic Mouse. The surface lets you perfo...

This hemispherical mouse adds a different aesthetic to your work-desk

Look at the Hemisphere and tell me it isn’t adorably eye-catching. The mouse’s name pretty much tells you all you need to know. Its design is a perfect hemisphere, unlike most organically-designed computer mice, and features the standard two click buttons and a scroller, but laid out in the mouse’s half-sphere design.The mouse has, for too long, been bound to ergonomics-influenced design. I am, by no means, bashing ergonomics, but different mice appeal to different people. There’s no one-glove-f...
