Maybe hold off on buying that Xbox One or PlayStation 4 console. The first Steam Machine prototype looks to be fairly affordable.
Acer dumps the trackpad for touchscreen all the way in this three-way hybrid computer.
This probably the first "foot-on" in DVICE history.
Sega's cranking out hardware again, but it's not what you think.
Step aside Raspberry Pi, there's another fairly cheap and tiny DIY PC board in town.
Any decent smartphone can perform most of the tasks needed for everyday life, but there are times when a tablet's bigger screen or the physical keyboard of a PC would be really useful. Instead of getting separate devices to do all these jobs, the NexPhone is designed as a one-size-fits-all solution, that adapts to the task at hand.
Powerful as today's notebooks and tablets are, they're still puny when compared to the might of a desktop. All-in-one PCs are popular for their space-saving designs that come at a cost: no easy upgrading. Maingear's is the next to offer an upgradeable all-on-one, one that looks like an iMac got together with a cyborg.
When it comes to having the best gear or the biggest collections, gamers don't mess around. Few can boast about having $30,000 worth of gaming gear, but YouTube user Maxishine can. And boy does his little batcave full of PCs make us envious.
If you build it, they will come. That's how the saying goes, at least. Cheapo HDTV maker Vizio wants to do for PCs what it did with the HDTV business; that is, disrupt it with well designed products, with the latest specs at affordable prices. Vizio isn't entering the PC business to churn out the same products Samsung, HP or Dell have. It envisions itself being able to offer "experiences" that no other PC makers have been able to do so far. (Pinch me if you've heard of another company that focuses on "experiences" rather than simply specs.) To kick-off its first foray into the PC market, Vizio is releasing two gorgeous products — an aluminum unibody laptop (14-inch and 15.6-inch) and an all-in-one PC (24-inch and 27-inch) that reflect its desire to provide consumers with an uncompromised PCs.
Shanghai, China — It's tough being an Ultrabook right now. You're either a MacBook Air clone or a confused laptop masquerading as a new breed of mobile notebook. In a sea of wedge-shaped Ultrabooks, the HP Sceptre XT feels like the first one that really stands on its own without coming off as a copycat laptop.
