Review: Acer Aspire VERO – A Mostly-Recycled Laptop With a Green Disposition

As far as personal computing goes, we live in a very fortunate time where there are multiple equally-functional (relatively speaking) platforms to choose from, without a huge amount of variability in their essential functions – they all perform the same basic types of tasks, each platform doing so with its own unique “flavor”.

Review: Plugable 4K Displayport – UD-6950PDZ

The Plugable USBC Triple 4k HDMI and Displayport Display Horizontal Docking Station is a very impressive accessory catered to those who have laptops and are looking to expand their ports and displays. Regardless of its ridiculously long name this device has its uses but for the high price point is it necessary?
