Even though the battle to slim down laptops has slowed in recent years, that hasn’t stopped Acer from trying. And with the second-generation Swift 7, Acer has retaken the crown for having the thinnest laptop in the world.
Dell got CES 2018 started early when it debuted its fully redesigned flagship ultraportable last week. But the XPS 13 isn’t the only new premium system the company is showing off, and in some ways, it might not even be the most exciting, because now for the first time ever, there’s a 2-in-1 version of the XPS 15.
After the latest MacBook Pro refresh failed to deliver the kind of features buyers really wanted, Apple’s competitors sensed weaknesss. Instead of an overabundance of USB-C ports and gimmicky touch screens above the keyboard, systems like the new Spectre x360 15 are hoping to entice users back to PC land by offering…
If you thought you knew everything there was to know about paper notebooks, you haven’t seen the Rocketbook Wave.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's round up of the best toys we’ve seen all week. This time we’ve got tons of new Lego minifigures, the most amazing Magneto cape, entirely unrelated magnetic building blocks, a spectacularly poseable Spider-Man: Homecoming figure, and yes, the best grin on a Han Solo action figure ever.
ThinkGeek’s timing could’ve been better with this 240-page notebook inspired by the NES console’s boxy controllers. It would have been the perfect place to write down level codes, cheats, or draw out maps to help you navigate Metroid’s endless caves and caverns—when you were eight years old. But hey, it’s never too…
We were impressed with how InFocus managed to cram a half-decent computer into its Kangaroo mini PC that’s no larger than a paperback novel. But we’re still trying to wrap our heads around the company’s latest creation: a laptop dock that lets you swap in even tinier Windows 10 PC modules.
If you still keep a small paper notebook tucked away for jotting down quick notes, you might want to consider trading up to this blank deck of cards that’s useful for more than just remembering to buy milk.
If you’re hesitant to give up pen and paper for all your note-taking needs, Wacom’s Bamboo Spark digitizing notebook has added another good reason to avoid a touchscreen stylus for a little while longer: handwriting to text conversion.
The problem with technology shrinking is that our hands aren’t getting smaller, creating usability issues. Apple’s 12-inch MacBook is about as small as you can make a laptop with a full-size keyboard, but Japan’s King Jim has found a clever way to make its Portabook XMC10 even smaller.
If you weren’t lucky enough to land your dream job at a hip startup with free lunches and ping pong tables on every floor, Suck UK has your consolation prize with a set of three notebooks that double as a pair of paddles and a net for spontaneous table tennis matches.
I love writing stuff down. Well, I love the idea of writing stuff down. Often I abandon the actual task because keeping track and archiving written notes is a huge pain in the ass. Wacom has a new toy called Bamboo Spark that digitizes your handwritten notes without you having to think about it...much.
People always ask me which laptop to buy. They want it all—a powerful processor, long battery life, lots of storage, and yes, a fancy way to transform into a touchscreen tablet. And they want it for $400. Usually, I convince them to buy an $800 laptop instead. But what if you’re truly strapped for cash? How close can…
Despite living in a time when even our watches can take notes for us, Moleskine's paper notebooks continue to thrive—and partly because the company has been cleverly branding its blank tomes with pop culture icons that now finally include Batman.
As long as it's existed the Etch-A-Sketch has been sold as a drawing toy, but in reality that couldn't be a more inaccurate description. Using two twisty knobs is just about the least intuitive way to draw there is, and while the challenge is obviously part of the toy's long-lasting appeal, these Etch-A-Sketch-themed…
