The Full Nerd ep. 70: Microsoft Surface refresh analysis, inside the Windows 10 October Update

In this episode of the Full Nerd, Gordon Mah Ung, Brad Chacos, Adam Patrick Murray, and PCWorld’s resident Microsoft expert Mark Hachman dive deep into the slew of Surface device updates and what to expect from the big (and boringly named) Windows 10 October 2018 Update. We start by talking about Surface, as Microsoft refreshed most of its lineup earlier this week. Mark got hands-on time with the new Surface Pro 6, Surface Laptop 2, Surface Studio 2, and Surface Headphones in New…

Dell OptiPlex 7760 All-in-One Review & Rating

The last two Dell OptiPlex all-in-ones (AIOs) to enter PC Labs left with Editors’ Choice awards. The latest, the Dell OptiPlex 7760 All-in-One (starts at $1,289; $1,983 as tested), continues Dell’s dominant run of AIO business desktops. For roughly the same price as last year’s award-winning 24-inch model, the OptiPlex 7760 serves up a larger 27-inch display and better performance. The OptiPlex 7760, as we tested it, boasts an eighth-generation Intel Core i7 processor and an ample 16GB of RAM,…

Microsoft isn’t offering the Surface Laptop 2 at the price it promised, sort of

At Microsoft’s Surface launch, Microsoft device chief Panos Panay put up a slide with minimum, “starting at” prices for the Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2: $899 and $999, respectively.  What we didn’t notice, though, was that the key to the lower prices appears to be the color of the devices in question: if you want the lowest-cost Surface Pro 6 and Surface Laptop 2, you’ll have to be satisfied with the platinum color. But it’s also not quite…

Acer Chromebox CXI3 Review & Rating

Originally conceived for use in low-power notebooks, Chrome OS has come a long way since it was first introduced back in 2011. These days, it’s far more than a glorified web browser. For one, most late-model Chrome OS-based hardware can now run Android apps out of the box. And it’s not all about laptop-shaped Chromebooks, either. Sporadically, we’ve seen miniature Chrome OS desktops dubbed “Chromeboxes” pop up from makers such as Acer, Asus, and Lenovo. The latest eruption is Acer’s…

Hands On With the Microsoft Surface Studio 2

For digital artists who have learned to use an electronic stylus like the Microsoft Surface Pen or the nifty Surface Dial as their creative tools, it doesn’t get much better than the Surface Studio as a replacement for a physical easel. But as an actual PC, the Studio has never been cutting edge, thanks to Microsoft’s decision to bestow it with sixth-generation CPUs and Maxwell-based Nvidia GPUs at its launch two years ago. Perhaps it comes as little surprise, then,…

Shuttle DH02U7 Review & Rating

Finding a mini PC that supports up to four displays is hard enough, let alone one that can be VESA-mounted behind one of them. The Shuttle DH02U7 (starts at $1,487; $1,795 as tested) does both. The DH02U7 is built for professional use, but there’s nothing that says its industrial-grade capacitors and 24/7 operational design would make it a bad home PC. You can buy this model pre-configured and ready to use out of the box, or as a barebones unit…

Ludicrous! Overclocked Radeon RX 570 graphics cards are on sale for $150 with 3 free games

Looking to up your PC’s game? Newegg is offering some smoking hot deals on our favorite GPU for 1080p gaming. Custom-cooled, overclocked versions of the Radeon RX 570 by ASRockRemove non-product link and PowerColorRemove non-product link currently cost just $150 after a $20 mail-in rebate right now (so you pay $170 up front). That’s a great deal in and of itself, but both cards are also eligible for AMD’s gaming bundle giving you three games for free. The ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon…

Core i9-9900K vs. Ryzen 2800X: Totally fake benchmarks!

Intel’s rumored “Ryzen-Killing” 5GHz Core i9-9900K and AMD’s rumored “Core i9-Killing” Ryzen 7 2800X aren’t official CPUs yet. But the slow drip of leaks and rumors surrounding the launch of the next big chip war has reached a full-on deluge. The leaks have gotten so bad, Amazon even posted a picture of the Intel part (which isn’t on sale yet) this week. We’re also now seeing more leaks of AMD’s highly anticipated Ryzen 7 2800X, expected to offer up to 10 cores…

Dell OptiPlex 7060 SFF Review & Rating

The Dell OptiPlex 7060 Small Form Factor (SFF) ($799 starting price, $1,650 as tested) is a high-end desktop for business. The OptiPlex 7060 is also available in mid-tower and micro-PC form factors; this space-saving SFF variant fits in the middle. It’s designed for use (and equipped for this review) with Dell’s OSS17 stand and a Dell monitor, which together effectively turn it into an all-in-one (AIO) PC, with the PC mounted in the stand. This is an attractive combo for…
