First Look at Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2, Surface Pro 6

Microsoft’s Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Pro 6 look great in black. So good, in fact, that the new color makes the laptop and Windows tablet appear sleeker and even a bit slimmer than their predecessors, which is emphatically not the case. But other than the option to order them in black, Microsoft’s latest portable PCs are physically identical to their predecessors. During a brief demo at Microsoft’s unveiling event on Tuesday, I found myself admiring how much sleeker the…

Hands on with the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2: Still a great laptop, now without Windows 10 S

With Microsoft’s Surface Laptop, Microsoft used Windows 10 S as a tool to help enable the Laptop’s outstanding battery life. Now the Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 is here, complete with a higher-performing, 8th-generation Intel Core chip. But there’s one thing missing: Windows 10 S. Performance is the name of the game this time around, and Microsoft’s claiming that the Surface Laptop is up to 85 percent faster, in part because of the new 8th-generation Core processors powering it. Battery life…

Dell Precision 3530

Dell’s entry-level mobile workstation, the Precision 3530, is a powerful and configurable choice, but it’s priced only a smidge below the trimmer and lighter Editors’ Choice Precision 5530. Source link

Dell Precision 3530 Review & Rating

No offense to Dell, but you can’t get a mobile workstation for $929. The configuration of the company’s entry-level Precision 3530 that carries that price has a Core i5 processor with integrated graphics instead of a discrete GPU, only 4GB of RAM, and a (guffaw, shudder) 1,366-by-768-pixel screen more suited to a child’s laptop than a design, rendering, or scientific pro’s machine. Load up the Precision 3530 with a Xeon CPU, Nvidia Quadro graphics, 32GB of memory, and a decent…

Dell Now Offers the Best Way to Buy a Microsoft Surface PC (Seriously) | News & Opinion

It makes sense that Microsoft, the company that created the world’s most popular operating system, would also make one of the best Windows detachable tablets, the Surface Pro. But something that makes far less sense, at least at first glance, is that Dell, which sells several Surface Pro competitors of its own, is now collaborating with Microsoft to offer the best deal on a Surface Pro. The new Surface All Access plan works like this: you sign up for a…

Apple MacBook Pro 15-Inch (2018) Review & Rating

The option for an Intel Core i9 processor with six cores and a clock-speed ceiling of 4.8GHz makes its way to the 2018 refresh of Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro (starts at $2,399; $4,699 as tested). Not only does it offer the best raw computing performance we’ve seen from an Apple laptop, but it also helps make the MacBook Pro competitive with similarly priced Windows machines—mostly gaming laptops and workstations. Even better, this beast of a chip fits into the same…

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. Intel has been prioritizing production of its Xeon and Core processors, which are used in servers and PCs. However, Swan warned that chip supplies for PCs in the lower-end “entry-level” market could get thin. “We continue…

Hands On With HP’s Leather Spectre Folio

At first glance, the new HP Spectre Folio just looks like a conventional—albeit very thin—ultraportable sheathed in a leather case. But upon further examination, you realize that the expensive-looking Cognac Brown leather exterior is actually fused with the laptop itself. Yes, HP made a leather laptop, and it looks and feels gorgeous. Unlike last year’s Spectre 13, which was also gorgeous but sleekly post-industrial, the new Spectre Folio is far more old-fashioned looking, which is apparently all the rage in…

A dream team of Intel engineers helped create HP’s tiny Spectre Folio motherboard

You’re forgiven if all you notice about the leather-bound HP Spectre Folio tablet is its luxurious exterior. But beneath HP’s Spectre stamp also hides the product of a rare collaboration between Intel’s top engineers and select customers, which helped extend the Folio’s battery life to a whopping 18 hours. According to Intel, the Spectre Folio is officially the lead platform for Intel’s Amber Lake, the low-power Y-series processor that represents the latest branch of 8th-gen Intel Core processors. But it’s…

The HP Spectre Folio is a leather-clad laptop that’s luxurious

The HP Spectre Folio is a sensual experience. By wrapping an incredibly thin laptop in a full-grain leather shell, HP has made a PC whose look, feel, and smell will evoke classic, covetable objects like a bomber jacket, a handbag, or a leather football or baseball. You’ll find yourself responding to the Spectre Folio in the same way—and then fighting it, as if it were wrong to react like that to a PC, even if it’s also one of the…
