Which laptop should I buy for a small business? – The Guardian

Posted: Thursday, October 15, 2015

I am setting up an office for a new business and my boss would like to purchase two laptops with two external monitors. I know we need a docking station. Any advice?

LG’s Gram laptop is unbearably light – The Verge

Posted: Thursday, October 15, 2015

My first sensation upon unboxing the LG Gram is one of profound familiarity. That’s an odd thing to experience with a computer that marks LG’s debut in the Western laptop market, but it’s there all the same. The reason? Pretty much everything about this machine has been modeled on Apple’s MacBook line, from the minimalist white packaging to the look and shape of the laptop itself. The Gram is…

Surface Book laptop preorders sell out on Microsoft’s site – PCWorld

Posted: Thursday, October 15, 2015

People who want to buy Microsoft’s new Surface Book laptop-tablet hybrid will have to look somewhere other than the company’s online retail store, for the moment. The online Microsoft Store isn’t letting people pre-order the new device. Instead it asks that they leave their email address so they can be notified when it’s next available. Fortunately for Microsoft, this means that there’s healthy demand for the machines. It’s a positive sign…

Origin PC EON17-X Gaming Laptop: the Kotaku Review – Kotaku

Posted: Monday, October 12, 2015

With a desktop processor and a Nvidia G-Sync display panel, Origin PC’s EON17-X laptop is getting dangerously close to my gaming PC’s spec. That’s no exaggeration. The EON17-X model Origin PC sent me to test out features an Intel Core i7 4790K CPU—newer models of the system released since I received the unit come with Intel Core i7 6700k Skylake processors, so they’re actually a step up.
