The new Lenovo Miix 700 is pretty much a straight-up clone of the Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3. Same size, same weight, same idea. I don’t care. The Surface was pretty great — minus a bunch of annoying flaws — and I can’t wait for someone to perfect it.

Surfing The Internet With A Laptop From 1983 Sounds Nightmarish

You think that monstrous hand-me-down Dell laptop you used in college was old? Kyocera’s TRS-80 Model 100 dates all the way back to 1983. It’s considered to be one of the first true laptops. So obviously someone resurrected and hacked one to surf the internet.

Gaming laptops are a funny breed. They’re usually massive, hulking, power-hungry devices that don’t offer anything substantial over a comparably priced desktop PC while also costing a hell of a lot in the first place.
