Saturday, April 29, 2017

It has been a long time since an HP business device made me sit up and take notice, but the latest Elitebook x360 has changed that. In a world where manufacturers continue to push tablets with keyboards as productivity devices, I’m increasingly convinced that convertible laptops are the superior option.

Acer’s Predator Triton 700 gaming laptop packs burly hardware in a slim frame – PC Gamer

Friday, April 28, 2017

Acer went a little nuts when it conceived the Predator 21 X, a humongous laptop stuffed to the gills with high-end hardware and a starting price of $8,999—yikes! In comparison, Acer’s new Predator Triton 700 seems like a bargain. Starting at $2,999 (€3,399), the Predator Triton 700 is only comparatively affordable to the Predator 21 X.

Hipster-Police: “I also think they missed out when they didn’t add a haptic engine to the Touch Bar. I have long since got used to it though, and luckily it doesn’t bother me at all. As for its usefulness, it wasn’t what sold me to the computer. I treat it as something good to have over a must have: it’s far more useful than standard function keys, but I didn’t…
