Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 review: Dual-screen gaming in your lap

Because the 4K panel is locked at a 60Hz refresh rate, much of the benefit of 1080p is wasted, making 4K resolution a solid option in some games. Civilization VI is a good example. The Zephyrus Duo 15 averaged 70 FPS (frames per second) at 4K with settings at Ultra. The same was true in […]

Best college laptop in 2020: Apple, Dell, Microsoft and more

Sarah Tew/CNET The newest Apple MacBook Air hits all the right notes: It’s back to the old $999 starting price, and it has Apple’s new Magic Keyboard, which most people prefer to the previous model’s butterfly design. Even better, this Apple laptop features current-era Intel processors, a new Force Touch trackpad and 256GB of storage […]

Acer Predator Helios 300 hands-on review: More power, same price

The Helios 300 does have one dangerous competitor, however. The Dell G5 SE, which comes with all-AMD components inside. It starts at just $862, despite having a new Ryzen 4000 processor and Radeon 5600M graphics inside. It’s a value leader, and while it doesn’t support RTX ray tracing, its in-game performance was solid. The Helios […]

MSI GS66 Stealth review: A value Razer alternative

MSI has even reeled the design back from last year’s GS65 Stealth, removing the gold highlights that played up the racing stripe theme. It’s now colorless, outside of the RGB keyboard, keeping to the standard aluminum chassis, painted black. Unfortunately, there are still vents along the sides and across the top of the keyboard deck, […]

Vanmoof S3 review: Affordable electric style

It works as advertised, though I wouldn’t put faith in it. The alarm could be louder, and a thief could pick up the bike and haul it away (though given its sensitivity, doing it without triggering the alarm would be difficult). You should always use a beefy lock to secure your bike to a permanent […]

Nubia Red Magic 5G review: Hardcore gamer

The battery life has been strong, with the phone lasting for a full day even after several hours of gaming on top of my usual activities. With more general use it lasted for almost two full days. The charging doesn’t match up though, as although Red Magic says the phone supports 55W fast charging, you […]

Everything we know about Google Stadia: games, cost, and how the cloud gaming service works
