Nextbook Ares 11
REVIEW

Nextbook Ares 11

Although affordable, the Nextbook Ares 11 isn't fit to be your next workstation or tablet. You'd be better off investing in an inexpensive Chromebook.

REVIEW

Acer Chromebook 15 ( white, 32GB)

If your one gripe about Chromebooks is the small screen sizes, the Acer Chromebook 15 is the solution and it's a very nice solution at that.

Alienware Alpha
REVIEW

Alienware Alpha

The bold Alienware Alpha makes good on many parts of its promise to meld the gaming PC and living room game console, but there are still too many rough edges to make this a true console killer.

HP Stream 11.6
REVIEW

HP Stream 11.6

The HP Stream 11 aims to be a cloud-focused laptop, much like a Chromebook, but with the added utility of Windows 8. It's a rock-bottom budget laptop, so don't get your hopes up, but the battery life is impressive.

Samsung Chromebook 2
REVIEW

Samsung Chromebook 2 ( 11.6-inch, Intel Celeron)

Samsung keeps the nice-looking design of its previous 11.6-inch Chromebook 2 while making it a little more durable and puts live support help just a click away, making it a noteworthy update to the company's Chrome-computing lineup.

REVIEW

Lenovo N20P Chromebook

Chromebook 13
REVIEW

Chromebook 13 ( CB5-311-T677)

One of the nicer-looking and better-performing Chrome OS systems, the 13-inch Acer Chromebook adds some zip by ditching Intel for an Nvidia processor, but also hits a few issues with popular Chrome apps.
