Asus ZenBook Flip 14 UX461UN review: A sleek, solid 2-in-1 laptop that’s eclipsed by our favorite

Peppy, slim, easy to look at and fun to type on, the $900 Asus ZenBook Flip 14 has a lot going for it. That said, it’s tough to recommend the Flip over our current favorite 2-in-1, the HP Spectre x360, which offers a more powerful CPU, a pair of speedy Thunderbolt 3 ports, and substantially better battery life, all for just $170 extra. Still, bargain hunters looking for a slightly larger display than the Spectre’s 13-inch screen may yet be…

AMD Ryzen 5 processors get killer Amazon deals with Zen+ CPUs looming

A fresh generation of AMD processors looms on the horizon, and its approach is creating wonderful ripple effects: You can find current-gen Ryzen processors going for wickedly good deals. AMD already dropped Ryzen prices in January, then pushed them down even further this month. Now costs have plunged yet again for two mainstream models if you’re willing to fill out rebate forms. First up: The 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 1600, which we recently used in a mini-ITX Ryzen gaming PC.…

Intel Hades Canyon NUC (NUC8i7HVK) review

Intel’s Hades Canyon is more than a simple successor to its Skull Canyon predecessor, an extreme version of Intel’s Next Unit of Computing (NUC). When Skull Canyon launched in 2016, it bucked the mini-PC trend of modest specs designed for general computing, instead boasting the absolute latest in hardware for its size: a 45W quad-core processor, integrated graphics capable of 1080p gaming, and a port that supported external graphics. At the time, that ultra-compact mini-PC was unrivaled. The Hades Canyon NUC…

Dell New XPS 13 review: It’s elegant, tiny and stupidly fast

Dell made a bold statement when it claimed its completely redesigned New XPS 13 would be among the fastest laptops in its class, if not the fastest. After finally laying our hands on the New XPS 13, we’d have to officially declare that Dell ain’t just trash-talking. How fast is it? Let’s just say the XPS 13 with an 8th-gen Core i5 is as fast, if not faster than, most 8th-gen Core i7 laptops. It’s even on a par with,…

The deal is part of Amazon’s one-day gaming sale, and before you ask no, there aren’t any graphics cards—we’re still in crisis mode. Nevertheless, there are some great deals on awesome gear today.

A backpack with a USB charge port and a free Lightning cable is on sale for under $20

If you’ve got a laptop, one key piece of gear you’ll need is a bag to carry it in. Today, an Amazon third-party marketplace seller is offering a backpack with built-in charging port for $18.90. This item usually sells for about $26 so you’re saving $7 or so. A sub-$20 price tag for a solid backpack with USB charging is a handy deal even if it’s not a massive drop from the normal price. We don’t review bags on PCWorld,…

The Atari VCS is a nostalgic mini-PC shrouded in faux wood and mystery

It still exists. That seems to be the message Atari wanted to send by showing up at GDC with the Atari VCS, formerly known as the “Ataribox.” Although the project was only announced last spring, I think I’d already started to think of it as vaporware—surely this isn’t real, right? But it is, or at least Atari’s still claiming it is, showing off a prototype of the Linux-based console this week. “Prototype” is maybe too lofty a term, though. This…

Newegg’s selling a mechanical keyboard with backlit Cherry Brown switches for $55

Devoted typists adore mechanical keyboards, but all of their internal hardware usually pushes entry prices up towards the $100 mark. This week, the barrier’s much lower.

The G.Skill Ripjaws KM570 MX with Cherry Brown switches is $55 via the retailer’s Newegg Flash site. This keyboard has an MSRP of $100 but commonly sells around $79 elsewhere.  The Ripjaws keyboard comes with Cherry MX Brown switches. As…

Azio Hue 2 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse review: Quiet and roomy, but a tad too sticky

While it boasts a roomy design, smooth, quiet keystrokes, and a reasonably inexpensive price, the Azio Hue 2 tripped me up with its finicky keys, particularly the all-important space bar. That’s a shame, because the Hue 2 comes bundled with a surprisingly well-built mouse, while its blue and pink variants add a splash of colorful style. Basic features Windows only 2.4GHz RF wireless connectivity 2 AA batteries required for keyboard with a month of battery life, 2 AAA batteries for…

To get ready, prices of the current Ryzen and Threadripper chips are starting to drop after previously receiving a permanent price slashing in January. Here’s a look at some of the best Ryzen prices you can find right now. Few chips are hitting Black Friday prices, but deal hunters should keep…
