Today, Microsoft announced the Surface Hub 2, and like many of the company’s previous Surface products, it offers a tantalizing view into a future filled with glorious touchscreen devices and effortless workplace collaboration. It looks totally sweet, and I’d love to have one on my wall at home right now. But after…
When the Spectre and Meltdown security vulnerabilities were made public earlier this year, things were a mess. Practically every Intel processor made in the last decade had backdoors that potentially let normal programs and software access what are supposed to be protected areas of a CPU’s kernel.
It hasn’t been the smoothest road, but after its launch in the summer of 2015, Windows 10 has finally surpassed the 8-year old Windows 7 as Microsoft’s most popular operating system.
Computer specs can be a baffling mix of acronyms and numbers at the best of times, but it’s worth learning something about them: It’ll help you choose a new computer, troubleshoot your old computer, and generally understand more about the relationship between the specs on the page and the experience you’re getting.
We were impressed with how InFocus managed to cram a half-decent computer into its Kangaroo mini PC that’s no larger than a paperback novel. But we’re still trying to wrap our heads around the company’s latest creation: a laptop dock that lets you swap in even tinier Windows 10 PC modules.
I love gaming, but I also hate sitting up straight in chairs when I don’t absolutely have to. You’d think a console would be the solution, but really, this dumb-looking keyboard-mouse combo from Razer is the missing link.
Got an ageing computer taking up space in a closet? Well, from mid-January you’ll be able to give it a new lease of life with Remix OS for PC, which will let you run a version of Android right there on a computer, gratis.
Yesterday, Intel announced that it’s putting its insane 72-core Knight’s Landing’ supercomputer chip—its fastest ever—into production. But perhaps more exciting is the fact that it has plans to ship desktop workstations that contain the face-melting computational powerhouse.
Earlier this year, Google announced the Chomebit: a Chrome OS-based computer on an HDMI stick that could turn any screen into a computer. Now, it’s officially going on sale—and it will only cost you $85.
There is long and storied debate about whether or not gadgets are sexy, but whichever side of the argument you come down on, it’s clear that this is real NSFW computer porn.
With the launch of Windows 10 upon us, Microsoft is making good on its promise from earlier this year: Windows 10 users can now stream gameplay footage from Xbox One. Which is awesome, and it might finally convince me to buy a new Xbox.
If you’re one of those quaint people who still uses ‘physical media’ to install new versions of operating systems, Windows 10 could have a big shock in store for you: USB drives replacing the clunky old reinstallation DVDs of yore.
The computer-on-a-stick is not a new—nor always terribly successful—idea. But that hasn’t stopped Lenovo, which has announced its own stab at the concept: the Ideacenter Stick 300.
Cramming a full Windows PC inside of a cheap, $150 HDMI dongle sounds like a great idea—but Intel’s first attempt really fell flat. The Intel Compute Stick was underpowered, frustrating, and failed to live up to the hype. It wasn’t good enough to be a do-everything PC that fits in your pocket. No sweat: a leaked Intel…
Last week, I helped Chris Davidson of Game Chops build a new PC. Neither of us had built a computer before, so we streamed the process on Twitch TV to elicit the collective wisdom of the internet. Because, who needs manuals? (In retrospect, instructions might have helped speed things along a bit.)
The Intel Compute Stick, a snazzy $150 dongle that can turn anything with an HDMI port into a full-fledged Windows computer, made a bit of a splash when it touched down at CES 2015. And now it's landing for real, preorders have started at Amazon and Newegg.
Did you know that Chromebooks were originally supposed to be disposable computers? That didn't quite come to pass. But a new computer company called The Hive has a PC that you actually do trade in, year after year.
The $200 HP Stream is the bargain-basement laptop to beat. But what if you want a desktop instead? Take a peek at the new HP Stream Mini. At just over 2 inches tall, 1.6 pounds light, and a mere $180 out of your wallet, this tiny pastel blue nettop packs a surprising amount of value into the case.
Remember when Sony decided to sell off its entire PC business in one fell swoop? It looks like that wasn't the end of the company's iconic VAIO designs. Today at Adobe's MAX design conference, the new VAIO Corporation showed off a brand new tablet computer aimed directly at pros. It's a beefy machine with a 12.3-inch…
Alienware is famous for two things. One: selling ever more powerful gaming computers. Two: making them look like they were designed by aliens. But its latest full-size desktop gaming PC isn't just another box sculpted to look like it's out of this world. In fact, the new Alienware Area-51 is trying to challenge the…
