Navigate the ins-and-outs of Windows 8 with how-tos, troubleshooting, news, and reviews.
The Last of Us is brutally realistic, often shocking, but undeniably fun to play. It's easily one of the year's best games and the strongest console exclusive in a long time.
A high-end big-screen multimedia laptop that's pretty portable (for a desktop replacement), the Samsung Series 7 Chronos is what we imagine a 17-inch ultrabook would look like.
Windows 7 is more than what Vista should have been, it's where Microsoft needed to go. How much damage Vista did and whether Windows 7 is enough for people to finally abandon Windows XP are questions that nobody has the answers to right now.
The business-oriented Lenovo ThinkPad X1 has a few quirks, but is otherwise a very impressive business-oriented ultrabook with strong crossover potential.
There may not be a better full-fledged business ultraportable than the ThinkPad X230, but more efficient, less expensive, and thinner ultrabooks are the real future of this category.
The glasses-free 15-inch 3D display on the Toshiba Qosmio F755 falls just short of being really impressive. The software support and stability are better than for previous models, but low-end hardware needlessly hobbles this laptop.
HP's Envy line has always been a reliable high-end PC laptop line, and this new redesign adds some useful features, such as a volume wheel, while keeping the upscale look and feel.
If you're looking for a lot of screen real estate and enough power for work and play, the HP Pavilion dv7-6b55dx is a good place to start.
Dell's updated Inspiron line has a slightly revamped design, but more importantly still offers workhorse performance for a minimal investment.
The slick and easy-to-use design makes Facebook for Windows Phone 8 a worthy free download, but the lack of key features will disappoint power users.
