My go-to laptop buying advice has been the same for the last two years, at least for anyone who doesn’t know their PRAM from their Linux kernel. Oh, you’re looking for a new laptop? Buy a MacBook Air. Apple’s cheapest and lightest notebook is the easy choice – it’s fast enough, has a fantastic keyboard and trackpad, has solid battery life, and comes with few of the quirks and issues that plague nearly every Windows device on the market.
This year, every PC manufacturer is determined to change that. Toshiba’s Kirabook offers the specs, size, and even service of Apple’s best; nearly every other manufacturer has renewed its focus on quality as well. Rather than race to the bottom and leave Apple alone at the top, Windows-powered PCs…

In 1989, we saw the release of The Wizard, a road trip movie about video games starring child actor Fred Savage. But everybody knew that it wasn’t really a movie about video games or road trips — it was a movie about selling Super Mario Bros. 3 and other Nintendo products. Nearly 25 years later, we have The Internship, a buddy comedy about two old guys trying to reinvent themselves for the 21st-century economy starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. But everybody knows (or will know) that it isn’t really a movie about friendship or new beginnings — it’s a movie about selling Google.
Not since The Wizard has a movie been so in the bag for a corporation. It’s incredibly difficult to watch The Internship as simply a movie and not as…

One of the strongest gaming laptops of 2012 had to be the MSI GT70. Like all machines of its type, it was huge, oversized and ridiculously heavy — but it trumped many of the category’s biggest faults by being superbly crafted, surprisingly long-lasting and by boasting the bleeding edge of tech: an Ivy Bridge CPU. It was a darn good machine, so it’s no surprise that MSI is hoping for a repeat performance. Meet the GT70 Dragon Edition: a Haswell-toting, 17-inch gaming laptop with all the trappings of its predecessor. It’s actually the second GT70 to adopt the Dragon moniker, but the first to pack Intel’s fourth-generation Core processors. NVIDIA’s latest mobile GPU is here too, not to mention notable OS upgrades, port tweaks and a mystical new motif. Let’s dive in and see if MSI’s encore deserves a standing ovation.

Now that we have the low-down on NVIDIA’s two mainstream heavyweights, the GTX 770 and the GTX 780, we figure it’s time to move beyond specs and official slide decks and bring together some reviews from the specialist sites. Both cards contain the same Kepler architecture as NVIDIA’s 2012 line-up, with no huge leaps in evidence, but they either add more of this silicon (in the case of the GTX 780) or drive it harder (in the case of the GTX 770) in order create new options for enthusiasts and for those upgrading from a card that is two or more generations old. At the same time, these products represent a major shift in NVIDIA’s pricing strategy. At $ 649, the GTX 780 is priced much higher than its direct ancestor, and it aims to approach Titan-level performance without hitting the same thousand-dollar high. Meanwhile, the GTX 770 costs just $ 399 and yet is said to replace last year’s flagship cards like the GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, which are still being sold for $ 450 and upwards at some retailers. Read on and we’ll summarize how these claims have stacked up against reality.
If you told us Acer was coming out with an innovative new take on the Windows 8 convertible, we’d probably laugh in your face. After so many months of evaluating slidable, twistable, bendable and detachable machines, we’d (hopefully) be forgiven for believing we’d seen every possible form factor. The Aspire R7 proves that we were wrong, and we’re actually kind of glad. With a 15.6-inch display sitting in a unique, flexible “Ezel” hinge, this device lets you switch between four modes, and the panel can even lie nearly flat above the keyboard like an all-in-one desktop. Oh, and Acer switched the positions of the keyboard and touchpad, a setup that definitely takes some getting used to.
Though the R7′s form factor sets it apart, it offers the same specs as many Windows 8 convertibles: you get a 1080p screen, a Core i5 processor and 6GB of RAM for $ 1,000. So does the R7′s appeal hinge on its distinctive design? Follow us past the break to find out — we promise the bad jokes stop here.
