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: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano – The Classic ThinkPad, Thinner, Stronger, and More Evolved

When I first switched to the MacBook Pro – my first ever Mac – way back at the very beginning of the Intel transition, it caused me to begin to think differently about how we describe computers, and even evaluate them. I learned very quickly that things like processor speed, RAM, and other raw specs become arbitrary at some point – and what really, truly matters is the experience that using a device provides. As such, when presented with the opportunity to review Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest generation of...

Last year, Asus dropped the ROG Zeyphrus Duo 15 GX550, a dual-screen laptop that didn’t disappoint.

Review: Lenovo ThinkBook 15

My plan is to approach this review in the same fashion that I write my car reviews. There are plenty of people out there that can talk about RAM and CPU and Inter CORE i7 processors. I’m nerdy, but not that nerdy. What I really want you to know is what this Lenovo Thinkbook 15 is like to live with. As such I’ve written this review on the very unit that Lenovo were good enough to lend me.
