Hope You Weren't Expecting A Single Version Of Windows 10

Microsoft announced Windows 10 as one big, free operating system that ran on everything: tablets, phones, PCs, televisions, game consoles and more. The fine print betrayed that marketing line though: it would only be a free upgrade for non-enterprise customers, which meant there would still be Home, Pro and Enterprise versions of Windows 10. Now it’s official.


Some SSDs Can Lose Data After Just A Few Days In Storage

Solid-state drives outclass hard drives as a storage medium in almost every way: they’re faster, less fragile, and can store more data per square inch. But according to some experts, SSDs suck at long-term storage of information, thanks to one particular problem: temperature.


HP Spectre x360 Review: My New Favourite Backflipping Windows Laptop

“Oooh, what’s that?” It’s the reaction I get every time I pull out the new HP Spectre x360 in a coffee shop. It hasn’t failed yet. Java fiends always want to know where I got such a good-looking laptop — and they’re always surprised when I tell them the answer. But the truly surprising thing about HP’s new Spectre is how much you get for your money.


This Is What You Get When You Buy A $10,000 PC

A crate. You get a crate. A crate full of $10,000 of high-performance gaming PC, actually. This is the five-figure Origin Genesis gaming desktop, and we have one in the office at the moment for review. It arrived in its own wooden shipping box.


HP Stream Mini Review: A Deceptively Capable Tiny Desktop

Back in the ’90s, you could buy a bargain-brand Gateway or eMachines PC for about $US400. They were everywhere. Everybody’s grandma got in on the action. They were also, objectively, pretty crappy computers. That’s more true now than ever. Why? Because now we have the $US180 HP Stream Mini. That’s why.


Can A Cheap Windows Tablet Replace Your Desktop?

It started as an offhand brag, but turned into a dare. I was telling my Gizmodo colleagues why I loved my Windows 8 tablet: it’s fast, it’s cheap, it’s a fully fledged PC. Hell, I said, I could probably hook it up to a monitor and use it as my workhorse for a week.


Dell Is Back

MSI GT72 Dominator Pro: Australian Review

Gaming laptops are a peculiar niche in the notebook world. They try to achieve an incredibly difficult goal — achieving plenty of power to run high-end PC games, while shoehorning all those powerful and heat-producing components into a vaguely portable chassis. The MSI GT72 Dominator Pro takes the same all-out approach as the existing GT70, but has brand new top-of-the-line PC hardware inside. It has all the outright grunt of a high-end desktop gaming PC, but is also mobile — just.
