Acer Nitro 5 review: Terrific for 1080p gaming, but poor for work

With an Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU, the Acer Nitro 5 is great for PC gaming on the go. Sadly, its poor ergonomics aren’t great for work.


MSI Creator Z16 review: Gaming and content creation collide

This 15-inch creator-oriented laptop provides all the tools for on-the-go editing and gaming, but there are a few things that may be deal-breakers for you.


Samsung’s Galaxy Book Odyssey didn’t turn me into a PC gamer

With an Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti onboard, the Galaxy Book Odyssey is more than capable of playing games, but you have to know its limits.


Unboxing Teenage Engineering’s gorgeous Computer-1 PC case

Teenage Engineering’s computer-1 is arguably the most refreshing PC case to come out in years, and makes everyone’s gaudy RGB towers look cheap.


Surface Pro 8 review: The perfect 2-in-1 now exists!

Microsoft knocked the Surface Pro 8 out of the park. It’s got everything you could want in a laptop replacement. The Pro 8 is the future of laptops and you can buy it today.


Windows 11 review: Surface makeover

Microsoft doesn’t reinvent the wheel with Windows 11. It’s still Windows, only now it’s not ugly and it’s easier to use. Plus, it’s free for Windows 10 users, so it’s a no-brainer update.

MNT Reform review: Your DIY laptop fantasy is here at last

No, the MNT Reform isn’t a laptop from the ‘90s. I assembled this DIY laptop with only a screwdriver and let me tell you, it’s anti-MacBook in every way, and that is not a bad thing.


Surface Laptop 4 review: Proudly not a MacBook (for better or worse)

The Intel CPU and battery life can’t compare to Apple’s M1 MacBook Air, but there’s a touchscreen and you don’t need to live in dongle hell.


MacBook Air M1 review: Windows laptops are so screwed

The hype is real for Apple's M1 chip. It doesn't feel like Apple's entry-level MacBook Air is capable of all this power and battery life. Yet it is. Windows laptops are going to be eating MacBook dust for years after this.

Unreal performance

The Surface Laptop Go is a fantastic surprise

With a touchscreen, a great keyboard, and a real OS, Microsoft's $700 Laptop Go is the new college laptop. It's a way better value than an iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard combo that costs $1,350.


Microsoft's Surface Go 2 is a terrible iPad and a bad laptop

Slow performance and mediocre battery life make the smallest Surface tablet a confusing purchase for any sensible person.


Humiliate your console with Intel's NUC 9 Extreme, a next-gen system for right now
