Acer Switch Alpha 12 preview: Giving Microsoft Surface a run for its money?

By

The Microsoft Surface is synonymous with the idea of a premium 2-in-1 device, but its ongoing success has seen other makers want a slice of that pie. Enter the Acer Switch Alpha 12, a powerful yet affordable 2-in-1, which we've got to sample at the Acer... >>

Microsoft Surface Book review: One for the books

By

After picking up the Microsoft Surface Book the bag in which it was placed promptly ripped through at the handles as we wandered down the street. Ah, this isn't a lightweight tablet-esque Surface product and, we suppose, we learnt that the hard way before... >>

Asus ZenBook Pro UX501 review: Plenty of pros with some amateur lows

By

First things first: forget the "Pro" bit. The Asus ZenBook Pro UX501 isn't some stuffy laptop meant to display dreary Excel spreadsheets in glass-walled meeting rooms for people in suits. The name undersells how fun this laptop can be. As well as looking... >>

HP EliteBook Folio preview: Super-slim laptop means business

By

It may well be a business laptop, but the HP EliteBook Folio sure does mean business. This slender workhorse is a mere 12.4mm thin - making it even more trim than the 12-inch MacBook. How's that possible? As the EliteBook Folio uses an Intel Core M processor... >>

Asus Transformer Book Flip TP200SA review: Flippin' good value

By

Asus doesn't half like to stick it to Apple when it can. First the ZenBook UX305 from last year showed Apple up by being what the rapidly-ageing MacBook Airs should be. Now the Asus Transformer Book Flip TP200SA laughs right in the face of the 12-inch... >>

Razer enters ultrabook territory with this new beaut: Blade Stealth

By

Razer came out with a new Blade laptop at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, and all we have to say about it is: yaaas! First of all... if you're not familiar with Razer's range of Blade laptops, you should know that they are primarily meant for gamers and usually... >>

LG Gram 15 preview: When is a MacBook not a MacBook?

By

Before CES even started, LG released details on a new version of its Gram laptop that has a massive 15.6-inch screen yet still weighs light as a feather. It also has a greatly reduced bezel around the display, so is barely larger than a 14-inch device.... >>
