The new Razer Blade Stealth is an unusual beast, in a good way. It exists as a product manufactured by a company that proudly states on the cardboard box that it ships in they are “For Gamers, By Gamers” but, like the previous model, it doesn’t really feel like a gaming laptop.

No, the Blade Stealth isn’t a gaming laptop.

But it is one of the best ultrabooks you can buy.

There's a never-ending list of things you can do on a laptop, but at their core, they are pretty simple devices. More often than not, it's feature bloat and things you never even wanted to use that cause a system to go haywire. Instead of gussying up systems with magical touchbars and ridiculous expandable screens, laptop makers should take a page from LG's playbook and keep things light and simple.

We all want laptops that have enough grunt to run modern games, but that are also (relatively) easy to carry around. MSI reckons it's cracked that code with a refreshed suite of gaming laptops and some new models — all of which it says will handle VR as well as the demands of 2017's AAA games.

The Surface Laptop might not have turned many heads if it had been the first mobile computer from Microsoft. It's not as radical and influential as the Surface Pro or as crazy looking as the Surface Book. From afar the silver Surface Laptop looks like something as easily made by Apple or Asus as by Microsoft. It feels like that too, with the same heft as a powerful premium laptop like the 2016 MacBook Pro or the exceptional Asus ZenBook 3. Despite being a good looking hunk of hardware, the Surface Laptop is remarkable for how perfectly mundane it in light of recent Microsoft computer products.

Microsoft is releasing a new Surface laptop, imaginatively called the Surface Laptop. At first blush, it feels very nice. That should be the case given how much Microsoft talked up the build quality of its new take on the traditional clamshell, but that premium feel did carry over in the short time I was able to play with the device at the company’s New York City event on Tuesday. Read on for our first impressions and photos.

If you've wanted a cheap laptop — especially a cheap convertible tablet/laptop hybrid — Chromebooks have typically been the best option. Sure, we've seen some super cheap Windows PCs over the years, but rarely have we seen a $US200 ($261) Windows convertible. Dell has a low-end two-in-one, but super-cheap Windows laptops with touch screens are still fairly uncommon.

Slim laptops with half-decent dedicated graphics are hard to come by. Slim gaming laptops that look good are harder again. Beyond Alienware and its ilk, we've always been fans of Razer's skinny Blade — and now you can buy the latest hardware update of the 14-inch machine in Australia.

The term 'laptop' has become a wide-ranging one — it covers a variety of portable rigs that vary in their specs. This is great in terms of the amount of options out there, but can be confusing if you're not quite sure what to get.

When it comes to down to it, size really does matter, and it should be at the centre of your decision making process.

Microsoft's Surface Book has always been a unique gadget — a great ultraportable laptop, with the extra appeal of a completely detachable tablet screen that contains all the smarts and processing to run proper Windows. The newest Performance Base variant of the Surface Book adds double the graphics power, without making any significant compromise on battery life — but it's also using tech that Microsoft's competitors have left behind.

The days of hauling a heavy laptop between work and home are over — all of the major brands are releasing increasingly thinner and lighter offerings that don't sacrifice power for convenience. Here are some of the best you can get in Australia.

It's a new year — time for a fresh start, and some fresh tech for work or uni.

Laptops are becoming increasingly versatile, powerful and thinner. The market is flooded with options and it can be tricky to pick what will be right for you.

That's where the specs come in. If you're not quite sure what all those letters and numbers mean, here are the most important ones.

Apple's new MacBook Pro is the first significant upgrade to the creative professional's go-to laptop in years. It adds the first touchscreen that any Mac has had, updates to new(er) Intel processors and AMD graphics, and makes a swathe of behind-the-scenes usability changes. It's the sum total of those small changes, though — not the new processing power or the not-exactly-amazing battery life — that make the new MacBook Pro a worthwhile purchase if you're considering one.

Not content with making every other technology product under the sun, Samsung now has a gaming laptop in its repertoire. It actually sounds pretty good on paper, too, if you want a powerful 15- or 17-inch machine that'll run double duty for workday tasks and casual PC gaming.

Sometimes you'll find yourself out of the house, with nothing but a laptop and a whole lot of time. And while laptops are getting more and more powerful, most are still low-spec machines when it comes to gaming.

But just because you're living out of home with an integrated GPU doesn't mean you have to be bored. Here's 13 games you can play on the potato-powered productivity device that is your laptop.
