Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51-58HD) Review & Rating

It’s an eye-catching claim on the box and palm-rest sticker of the Acer Aspire 5 (A515-51-58HD): “20GB Memory.” Can a $499.99 laptop really come with that much RAM? A second glance reveals the catch: There’s only 4GB of system memory. The other 16GB is Intel Optane Memory, which serves as an intelligent cache to speed up the 1TB hard drive. (The system has no solid-state drive.) It works all right; the Acer feels perkier than other PCs we’ve tried with…

First Look at the Revamped Chrome OS on Google’s Pixel Slate

With the Google Pixel Slate, unveiled on Tuesday, we finally know how Google is planning to light a fire under the currently quite boring non-iOS tablet market. When it ships later this year, the $599 Pixel Slate will come with a significantly redesigned version of Google’s Chrome operating system. It’s a secret weapon of sorts in a fight that up until now has essentially been no-contest as PCMag sees it: The Apple iPad is simply the best midrange tablet for…

Google Pixel Slate hands on: This is what the next generation of Android tablets feels like

Three years after Google released its first Pixel-branded Android tablet, it’s back with another one. This time it’s called the Pixel Slate, but it doesn’t run Android 9 Pie. It runs Chrome OS. You wouldn’t know it looking at it. Lying on a table, the Pixel Slate looks just like the Pixel C or any other 4:3 Android tablet, with uniform black bezels all around, four pogo pins, and a USB-C port in the corner. It’s only upon closer inspection…

The HP Chromebook x360 14 is a premium convertible missing one thing

With the Chromebook x360 14, HP is doubling down on the premium-Chromebook trend. Announced Monday, this is the company’s second fancy Chromebook announced this year—the detachable Chromebook x2 is the other. There are more: The Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and the Dell Inspiron Chromebook 14 have also come out with some form of the Chromebook-tablet idea, somewhat similar specs, and prices upward of $600. Clearly inspired by last year’s Google Pixelbook, these machines are clustered in a lower (as in midrange) price…

HP Chromebook x2 Review & Rating

When I say “Chromebook,” do you think of a plastic clamshell that costs $199? You couldn’t be further from the truth of today’s sophisticated Chrome OS laptops, and perhaps the one you’re furthest from is HP’s new Chromebook x2. For one thing, the x2 isn’t cheap at $599.99. For another, it’s aluminum rather than plastic, with the same swank faux-ceramic finish as HP’s Spectre 13. And instead of a conventional clamshell, it’s a 2-in-1—the first Chromebook to be a detachable…

Intel Tackles Chip Shortage With $1 Billion Investment | News & Opinion

Intel is trying to head off a PC chip shortage by investing $1 billion in its manufacturing sites. On Friday, Intel’s interim CEO Bob Swan said that “supply is undoubtedly tight” for the company’s processors, amid a return to growth in the PC market.

However, Swan warned that chip supplies for PCs in the lower-end “entry-level” market could get thin. “We continue…

How to Play Games on an Old, Low-End PC

While many PC enthusiasts look to high-end units or trick out their own custom rigs with the latest hardware, some of us are cursed with integrated graphics and two gigs of RAM. Though we have previously found a way to build a gaming PC for less than $1,000, not everyone is going to take the time to piece that together. But just because you have an ancient, crappy laptop doesn’t mean you can’t play games—it just means you’ll have to…
