    Lenovo embraces VR with a pair of angular gaming PCs

The folks at Lenovo are celebrating Europe’s biggest gaming event with a pair of PCs aimed at embracing virtual reality, doing so with an almost sci-fi-like panache.

    HP unveils a bunch of new Omen gaming hardware

    To be fair, an omen isn’t necessarily a portent of negative things. If it was, we wouldn’t feel obligated to qualify it using words like “bad.” Still, the word carries with it some fairly ominous overtones, surely not helped by the 1979 film that carried the title, centering around a young antichrist. And if HP is attempting to leave things open to interpretation… Read More

  • Maingear introduces "World's greenest gaming PC"

    We should probably note right off the bat that a “green gaming PC” is a sort of contradiction in terms, akin to the world’s “smallest giant panda.” But that doesn’t mean Maingear’s aim with the Pulse is completely bonkers: essentially it’s a low-power machine that still aims to provide a good gaming experience. Short of going the nettop route… Read More

  • Back to School: Desktop PCs

    Before you go humping down to Best Buy to pick up a PC, let’s ask ourselves a few questions. The rise of desktop replacement laptops – laptops with full-sized processors, hard drives, and lots of memory – have essentially supplanted the desktop PC in dorm rooms every where. Why pay $500 for a big, noisy box when you can potentially drag your $700 laptop down the hall to watch… Read More

    Those of us in the prestigious pro blogging field could probably get by with a Newton for all the processing power we use (or even a MacBook Air in a pinch), but not everyone is so modest in their needs.
