Hands-on review: HP ProBook 455 G3

With the ProBook 455 G3, HP is hoping to lure business users looking for a relatively affordable laptop with a premium feel. In terms of design, it’s an upgrade on HP’s 255 G3 model and even moreso on the value-focused 250 G4.

With the ProBook 455 G3, HP is hoping to lure business users looking for a relatively affordable laptop with a premium feel. In terms of design, it’s an upgrade on HP’s 255 G3 model and even moreso on the value-focused 250 G4.

Hands-on review: Jide Remix Mini

The history of alternative operating systems is littered with dead bodies from big and small companies – from the mighty IBM and the mightier Intel to smaller corpses (Lindows anyone?), there have been dozens of companies trying to break the stranglehold of Microsoft back in the day, then Google’s Android later on.

Alcatel, a phone maker known better in the UK and Europe than in the US, is the latest of the bunch to issue a virtual reality (VR) headset, here at IFA 2016.

Alcatel, a phone maker known better in the UK and Europe than in the US, is the latest of the bunch to issue a virtual reality (VR) headset, here at IFA 2016. However, this one, called simply Vision, is a bit different from your Samsung Gear VRs or LG VR 360s of the world.

Hands-on review: HP 250 G4

Small businesses have a number of choices these days when it comes to outfitting employees with affordable computers.

Hands-on review: Dell Inspiron 17 7000

Convertible notebooks that can be used as tablets or laptops bring obvious benefits, with the main upshot being that you only need to buy one device rather than two. The first type uses a rotating hinge design to flip the display around 360 degrees, while the second makes the display detachable – like Microsoft’s Surface Book.

The first type uses a rotating hinge design to flip the display around 360 degrees, while the second makes the display detachable – like Microsoft’s Surface Book. Dell has opted for the first former approach with its giant Inspiron 17 7000 convertible laptop, and we can’t help but thing it might have been better off going for the latter.
