Hands On: The New Crazy Thin EliteBook Folio: HP's Answer To The MacBook

The EliteBook Folio is thin. Super thin. Apple MacBook thin. And light. When you’re working all day in places other than your office, that can be really convenient, as long as it doesn’t get in the way of actually getting that work done. Despite sharing the same Core M processor line with the MacBook, the new HP EliteBook Folio packs a lot more power, including a double complement of USB Type-C.


Gigabyte's Latest Laptop Comes With 4K/60Hz Output, DDR4 + USB 3.1 Type-C

The Consumer Electronics Show always provides a nice kickstart to the year when it comes to new technology, and true to form Gigabyte has come to the table with their latest line of gaming laptops.

The whole line has been refreshed with Intel’s Skylake processors, but there are some other cool bells and whistles with their P57 gaming laptop that are worth paying attention to.


The Thinnest, Lightest Lenovo Yoga Laptop Includes Performance Trade-Offs

The design of Lenovo’s convertible Yoga laptops has stayed more or less the same since convertible laptops first became a thing, but the company has been tweaking and changing to try and find the ultimate form of what’s meant to be the ultimate portable computer. The Yoga 900S is the thinnest and lightest yet.


Yoga 900: Meet Lenovo's 13.3-Inch Successor To The Yoga 3 Pro 2 In 1

Crafting the perfect lap-friendly computing companion is a delicate balance between weight and performance. Add powerful processors, expect hefty returns. If lightweight is what you want, packing in the best processors, along with cooling systems, can be a challenge. For the new Yoga 900 Series, Lenovo decided to rethink the formula.


Toshiba Satellite Radius 12: Australian Review

One of the things I really like about the Microsoft Surface Book isn’t how useful it is as a tablet, but how useful it is as a laptop. Given that I type and browse the ‘net a lot more than I watch video and play touchscreen games, it’s important to me that a 2-in-1 laptop be good at the laptop part. Enter this particular bad boy: Toshiba’s Satellite Radius 12 is a 12-inch notebook, with a beautiful display and powerful hardware, and also a versatile screen hinge that lets it flip around into tablet mode.


Use The Find My Device Tool To Track Your Windows 10 Laptop

Microsoft has finally got around to adding a Find My Device feature to Windows 10. As you might expect, it lets you identify where your laptop is, should it get lost or stolen. The new feature is part of the major update for Windows 10 rolled out earlier this month, and here’s how to activate it on your machine.


HP Spectre X2 Detachable 2-In-1: Australian Review

Tablets with detachable keyboards are the new black. HP’s Spectre X2 looks remarkably like a Microsoft Surface Pro 4, even down to the felt-backed keyboard cover, but it sets itself apart with more energy-efficient hardware inside, a digitiser pen made by Wacom, and an entirely fanless design.


Origin PC's EON17-X Is One Of The Best All-Round Gaming Laptops You Can Buy

Alienware, Acer, MSI, Asus and Razer all make pretty cool gaming laptops. But a gaming laptop is a compromised device from the outset; it has to have enough graphical and computational power to handle the demands of a modern triple-A PC title like Fallout 4, but still be compact enough to transport around. And it has to have sufficient cooling power to keep those internal components from melting, but still be thin enough to actually fit inside a backpack or briefcase. The latest iteration of Origin PC’s EON17-X hits on all these marks pretty damn well.


Kogan's Gaming Laptop Benchmarked: Fine, Provided You Like Old Games

When Kogan launched a gaming laptop earlier in the year, first impressions … weren’t great. The $1000 figure isn’t too bad when you compare it to the rest of the market, but the specifications didn’t exactly set hearts alight.We’ll have a full review later in the week, but for now I wanted to provide you all with the meat and potatoes for any gaming laptop: the benchmarks.


Microsoft's Surface Book: Not Made For Gaming, But Not Terrible At It

Microsoft’s $2299 Surface Book, which launched in Australia at the same time as its flagship Sydney store, is a thin and light tablet with a keyboard dock that contains extra battery power. Uniquely, though, the Surface Book’s lower half also contains a Nvidia GeForce graphics card, fueling some small hope that it might be adequate for a bit of weekend gaming.

After some mucking around with different Nvidia drivers and a bunch of testing over the weekend, I can say that adequate is the word — the Surface Book certainly isn’t a gaming powerhouse, but with a bit of software hacking, it’s not terrible, and enough to enjoy a modern video game or two.
