HP Spectre Folio vs. HP Spectre x360

It’s not that often that a new laptop is truly different. Microsoft’s Surface line has a couple of interesting options, but otherwise most new notebooks are variations on the same old theme. Not so much with HP’s new Spectre Folio. It’s a 2-in-1 with a leather chassis that the company says “reinvents the PC.” It […]

Dell OptiPlex 7460 All-in-One

The Dell OptiPlex 7460 All-in-One business desktop (starts at $ 1,089, $ 1,742 as tested) introduces 8th Generation Intel Core processors and a new all-in-one design that’s trimmer and sleeker than its OptiPlex 7450 predecessor. But the resolution on the 23.8-inch display drops precipitously in the process: The OptiPlex 7450 featured a 4K panel, while […]

Dell 27 USB-C Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DC)

My main complaint when reviewing the Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DM) earlier this year was its paucity of video inputs. (It was limited to just HDMI.) The $ 549.99 Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor (S2719DC) remedies this with the addition of a USB Type-C port, as well as two USB 3.0 ports. Not only can you […]

HP EliteDisplay S14 USB Portable Monitor

The $ 219 HP EliteDisplay S14 has some impressive specs for a portable monitor, though the niftiest of all boils down to one letter: “C.” This business-oriented travel monitor has a full HD (1,920-by-1,080-pixel) native resolution, using a 60Hz panel with a 5ms response time. The listed static contrast ratio of 700:1 is nothing to […]

Acer Nitro 5 (2018, AMD Ryzen)

We’ve sampled Acer’s Nitro 5 entry-level gaming laptop twice before, in October 2017 and June 2018. Today’s unit, model number AN515-42-R5GT, is the most affordable yet at $ 699.99. The reason? It breaks from its predecessors’ Intel Core i5 power and Nvidia GeForce graphics: Both the quad-core Ryzen 5 2500U processor and 4GB Radeon RX […]

Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends Some Chromebooks and the new Pixel Slate work good as tablets, but not every website reads nicely on the devices. That might soon change, as Google is apparently adding a tablet view option to Chrome OS, according to Android Police. It is not clear when the tablet view option will be coming, […]

HP Spectre Folio

The HP Spectre Folio’s name is more than just marketing hype. This 2-in-1 convertible laptop bucks the futuristic designs that dominate premium laptop lineups from the likes of Dell, Apple, and Asus in favor of a simple, luxurious, comfortable leather exterior. When closed, it looks just like a portfolio cover you might use to bring […]
