Asus ZenBook S UX391UA review

Asus ZenBook S UX391UA review

This might be the nicest piece of laptop hardware that you can buy. Oh, what? Oh that's cool. As you open the box it like presents the laptop to you. I mean, no one ever needs to do that, you're only gonna open the box once, but that's pretty dope. What's cool about this, is has Asus' new Ergolift hinge. So when I open it from the bottom, it actually elevates the entire laptop up. That's, that's actually something kinda different. Now this means that there are some interesting quirks with the d...

Eluktronics Mech-15 G2 review

Eluktronics Mech-15 G2 review

This is a device that isn't from your standard kind of name-brand laptop company It's from a company called Eluktronics now. It's not a unique device to them this is a bare-bones computer that they sell and I normally stray away from Bare-bones laptops because usually fun just kind of boring. There's nothing really special about them. But this one has a unique feature that is Well, it's a mechanical keyboard and it's a good mechanical keyboard. So the keyboard has a really nice feel to it I'm s...

The Pro Trek F10 and F20 review

The Pro Trek F10 and F20 review

For the past two years my go-to summer time smart watch has been the Pro Trek series from Casio. So you can imagine I was pretty pleased to find that here at IFA 2018 in Berlin, the company has brought a proper sequel. The Pro Trek F10 and F20 were designed for adventures and the great outdoors with rugged casings, alti barometers and a dual layer display years before anyone else was doing it. But the thing is to get to appreciate their special features you first had to get over just how huge t...

Asus ZenBook 13 review

Asus ZenBook 13 review

The new ASUS ZenBook keeps the web cam at the top of the display where it belongs and it also has IR cameras so you can do Windows Hello authentication. The display is nicer, they're brighter than the old generation. And the laptops are just so much smaller. You basically lose nothing and gain a ton of goodness. Okay, I lied. You do lose something. You do lose a USB-A port. You still get USB-A and USB-C and you can charge with USB-C. And you no longer have an SD card reader. It can only read Mic...

HP Envy x360 review

HP Envy x360 review

With Ryzen 7 inside this is either going to be one of the fastest 13 inch laptops you can pick up, or it's going to catch on fire. You may remember a few months ago we did take a look at a bigger version of the Envy. It was cool, but it was not only going to be a much larger laptop. It was also powered by Ryzen 5. Ryzen 7 on the other hand should be a little bit more exciting. What really drew my attention to this is just how much power you're getting in such a tiny package. Not only is this go...

The $300 Pocophone F1

The $300 Pocophone F1

What exactly is this? With a price tag of around $300, the Pocophone F1 might be the best deal in smartphones right now. So inside not only are you going to be getting a giant battery. But you're also getting a full flagship grade Snapdragon 845 processor in a $300 phone. I open the box and what we're going to find is well. First of all a whole lot of yellow. But we also have the Pocophone F1 itself. So in addition to the base model, the Pocophone. There's also going to be Armored Edition which...

Samsung Galaxy Note9 VS OnePlus 6

Samsung Galaxy Note9 VS OnePlus 6

The Samsung Galaxy Note9 and the OnePlus 6. Two smartphones separated by features, ecosystems, and about 500 bucks. But how wide is the gulf between them, really? Not as wide as you might think.  Okay, first of all let's get the obvious stuff out of the way. OnePlus still hasn't built a version of its phone for Sprint or Verizon so at the risk of losing your eyeballs less than a minute into the video, if you're on either of those carriers you can count the OnePlus 6 right out. And then the...

How NOT to Build a Gaming PC in 2018

How NOT to Build a Gaming PC in 2018

Hey guys, this is Austin! And today we're doing something just a little bit different. Last week I took a day off, I left everyone at the office with one simple mission, to get a back to school PC. I'm curious, what did you guys actually do? Austin wants us to build a back to school PC for around $750. - Which he gave us way more of a budget than he did on Halloween.  I just wanna point that out. - What do students want in a computer? In general. - Obviously productivity. - So it needs to ...

Galaxy Note 9 review: worth the price?

Galaxy Note 9 review: worth the price?

Samsung's Galaxy Note phones have always been about more. More screen, more battery, more specs, more power, more features. And the new Note 9 is the most more of them all. It has the biggest screen, the fastest processor, the biggest battery, the most storage, and the most features of any Note phone. And it also has the biggest price. This thing costs $1,000 and up, and it's way more than any prior mainstream Samsung phone. So is all of this more stuff worth it? Well, if you're a Note fan, or s...
