    This $1,699 "secure PC" will self-destruct if tampered with

    Orwl is a new kind of PC that takes a "die trying" approach to physical device and data security. The palm-sized computer is security-focused from the ground up. It comes with several layers to put a stop to even the most ardent of hackers gaining access to a user's precious data. Not only do you need a password and a corresponding wireless keyfob just to turn on the puck-like PC, the processor goes to sleep and the USB and HDMI ports shut off whenever the keyfob moves out of range, stopping anyone from snooping in.

    Surface Laptop is just a laptop, making it Microsoft’s most baffling release yet

    After several years of building systems that compete with, but aren't quite, laptops, Microsoft has built a plain old laptop: the Surface Laptop. I think there's a good chance that the Surface Laptop will become Microsoft's best-selling piece of PC hardware. This is such a straightforward proposition: it's a regular PC laptop. It has no trickery; no tear-off keyboard, no special hinge, no detachable GPU, none of the other things that have made the Surface Pro, Surface Book, and Surface Studio notable or unusual. It can't be said any plainer: Surface Laptop is just a PC laptop.

    The Dell XPS 15 9560 Review: Infinity Edge Part Two

    Near the end of 2015, Dell rolled out their new XPS styling cues, that were so successful on the XPS 13, to its larger sibling, the XPS 15. Thanks to the Infinity Edge display, Dell’s new XPS 15 packed a full 15.6-inch display into a notebook closer to the size of a 14-inch model. Perhaps the size reduction is not quite as dramatic as the XPS 13 when it first launched with the thin-bezel design, but Dell also kept the performance heart of the XPS 15 intact with the change, keeping a quad-core 45-Watt CPU, and NVIDIA GTX 960M graphics.

    Microsoft's Surface Book 2 has more power and a new 15-inch size

    A spec bump and a size bump for a laptop should be the easiest story in the world to tell. For example: Microsoft's Surface Book 2 has new processors, new graphics cards, slightly tweaked designs, and is now also available with a new 15-inch screen. Simple.

    Fixing the MacBook Pro

    Despite my love for the previous Retina MacBook Pro, I won’t be able to use it forever. The best laptop to ever exist should be in the future, not the past. There’s a lot to like about the new MacBook Pros, but they need some changes to be truly great and up to Apple’s standards. Here’s what I’m hoping to see in the next MacBook Pro that I believe is technically possible, reasonable, widely agreeable, and likely for Apple to actually do, in descending order of importance:

    HP Quietly Installs System-Slowing Spyware On Its PCs, Users Say

    It hasn't been long since Lenovo settled a massive $3.5 million fine for preinstalling adware on laptops without users' consent, and it appears HP is on to the same route already. According to numerous reports gathered by news outlet Computer World, the brand is deploying a telemetry client on customer computers without asking permission. The software, called "HP Touchpoint Analytics Service", appears to replace the self-managed HP Touchpoint Manager solution. To make matter worse, the suite seems to be slowing down PCs, users say.

    Dell’s latest 15-inch XPS 2-in-1 is a high-end laptop that appeals to creative users: people who need power and portability, and might also appreciate a touchscreen and a stylus.

    Thinner and Lighter Laptops Have Screwed Us All

    Over the last few days we’ve seen outcry about Apple’s new MacBook Pro, which offers an optional top-end i9 processor, and how its performance is throttled to the point of parody as the laptop heats up over time. Sparked by a video from YouTuber Dave Lee, who demonstrates that the only way to get Apple’s quoted performance from the MacBook Pro is by keeping it in a refrigerator, the outcry has been brutal.
