Using Your Smartphone In The Dark Risks Speeding Up Vision Loss | News & Opinion

The blue light that emits from your smartphone and laptop screens may seem harmless, but according to new research, it can be toxic for your eyes. Earlier this week, scientists at the University of Toledo said they’ve uncovered how blue light can lead to macular degeneration, a leading cause of vision loss in the US. Essentially, the light waves contain enough energy to erode the health of your eyes over time. “It’s no secret that blue light harms our vision…

Acer Predator Helios 300 (2018, 15-Inch) Review & Rating

Among them: Acer’s Predator Helios 300 (starting at $1,099.99; $1,299.99 as tested, in its 15-inch version), built around muscular Intel “Coffee Lake” eighth-generation CPUs.

With its GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the Helios 300 will run…

EU Hits Asus With $74M Fine for Laptop Price-Fixing | News & Opinion

Asus threatened to pull supplies from any online retailers caught selling company hardware below a certain price, the European Commission said. The price fixing occurred in Germany and France between 2011 and 2014. PC maker Asus is facing a $74 million fine in Europe for threatening to withhold inventory from online retailers that sold Asus products at a discount. On Tuesday, the European Commission levied fines against Asus and three other electronics makers—Phillips, Pioneer, and Denon & Marantz—for price-fixing in…

Apple MacBook Pro 13-Inch (2018, Touch Bar) Review & Rating

The non-“Pro” Apple MacBook may be the most portable macOS laptop, but the 13-inch, Touch Bar-equipped Apple MacBook Pro (starts at $1,799; $3,699 as tested) is the most versatile. Savvy configuration options let it serve as an everyday ultraportable for a self-employed frequent traveler or a well-heeled college student, a platform for light-to-moderate video and photo editing, and many uses in between. The key upticks in Apple’s 2018 model include more processor cores and threads (the biggest deal, for most…

HP EliteBook 840 G5 Review & Rating

The 14-inch business laptop segment is one of the most competitive in the PC market. At the top are glamorous models like the HDR-screened version of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the new Huawei MateBook X Pro. Below are workhorse systems like the ThinkPad T470 and T480, and Dell’s Latitude 5490 and 7490. Position HP’s EliteBook 840 G5 between those two camps. (It starts at $1,199; our test model is $1,835.) This highly IT-manageable, spiffy-looking machine has its charms,…

Lenovo ThinkPad L580 Review & Rating

Want a ThinkPad? Good luck choosing. Lenovo offers ThinkPad A, E, L, P, T, X, and Yoga models micro-targeted at different audiences. Some are familiar, but others are less clear. One page on Lenovo’s site describes the ThinkPad L machines as affordable notebooks for the enterprise, another as “our most green business laptops.” The 15.6-inch ThinkPad L580 (starts at $770; $989 as tested) will certainly save you some green; it’s a desktop-replacement that limbos under the thousand-dollar line, yet is…

Dell G7 15 Review & Rating

Dell has reinvented its gaming-laptop lineup this year, separating its former Inspiron gaming machines from its non-gaming Inspirons by splitting the gamers off into their own “G” series, replete with fresh designs. The G7 15 family (starts at $849.99) is one of these newcomers, straddling the line between entry-level and midrange pricing and power. You can get one of these laptops configured for well under $1,000, but our $1,209.99 test unit packs an Nvidia Max-Q GeForce GTX 1060 to provide…

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition Now Ships With Ubuntu 18.04 LTS | News & Opinion

For those of us unwilling to pay the high price of a MacBook Pro and tired of all the Windows 10 updates, there’s always Linux! Dell just updated its premium XPS 13 laptop with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, which Canonical will support for five years. The sales figures for laptops would have you believe there’s only really two operating systems available: laptops running Windows 10 and Apple’s MacBook range running macOS. But there’s a third option in the form of Linux,…

Asus NovaGo (TP370QL) Review & Rating

The Asus NovaGo ($699) feels sturdy and looks stylish, with a generous helping of silver accents, though there’s little to distinguish it on the outside from other notebooks and convertibles from the Taiwanese manufacturer. The only giveaway that this 2-in-1 convertible laptop could usher in a revolution in mobile computing is a small sticker below the keyboard that reads “Qualcomm Snapdragon.” This is one of the first traditional computers to enter PC Labs powered by a Snapdragon 835, the same…

Acer Swift 7 (2018) Review & Rating

Acer’s Swift 7 ultraportable is back, and with a profile just over a third of an inch thick, it’s holding on to its bragging rights as the world’s thinnest laptop. It’s no humble-brag, either: It’s going to be tough for any laptop maker to top this machine on thinness, seeing as the profile is barely thick enough to host any ports at all. With a spiffy, all-metal design, the Swift 7 is a real stunner, but it’s pricey at $1,699.99,…

MSI GT75 Titan 8RG Review & Rating

The MSI GT75 Titan 8RG is one of the biggest, baddest gaming notebooks money can buy. This 17.3-inch behemoth (starts at $2,799, $3,999 as tested) is a Pentagon-grade arsenal of the latest technology, packing desktop-level power into a hulking 2.2-inch-thick, 10.1-pound chassis (not counting the twin—yes, two—230-watt power adapters). Chart-topping performance, a 120Hz G-Sync display, and a per-key RGB backlit mechanical keyboard are its marquee features. The GT75 offers just about everything except reasonable portability and long battery life. Just…

Lenovo ThinkPad P52s Review & Rating

Thin design and pro-level graphics: That’s a rare combination, but the Lenovo ThinkPad P52s lets you have both. This 15.6-incher (starts at $1,070; $2,113 as tested) hides an Nvidia Quadro P500 graphics chip in its 0.8-inch thick, 4.4-pound chassis. Aimed at the business crowd, it’s essentially a mobile workstation version of the company’s ThinkPad T580. Our pumped-up configuration packs enough performance and component jazz to get content creators grooving, but the price approaches that of a desktop-replacement ThinkPad P51, Lenovo’s…
