Mobile Pixels’ Duo is a 12.5″ 1080p USB-C monitor that clips on the back of laptops via magnetic adhesives for use as a secondary screen. The USB-C cable handles both data and power. You can adjust the Duo’s hinge as well as fold it behind your laptop’s screen.
THE BEST Laptops
Apple finally got with the times and updated its MacBook Pro Touch Bar laptops with faster new 8th gen Intel processors. The 13″ has quad-core CPUs while the 15″ has six-core CPUs. They also have an improved keyboard and a True Tone display that adjusts to ambient lighting.
Microsoft is out to make tablets look like a bad deal with the new Surface Go. It’s a Windows-based 2-in-1 that has a 10″ 1800×1200 screen, 9h battery life, a USB-C port, and a microSD slot. It will be available starting 7/10/18 for $399. An LTE model will arrive late 2018.
Digital Storm’s mid-tier gaming laptop may not look flashy or modern, but it’s what’s inside that counts, and what the company is asking for it is very reasonable. The Equinox 15 has a 1080p 144Hz screen, a 6-core Core i7 CPU, GTX 1070 Max-Q GPU, and upgradable RAM and storage.
ASUS’ Project Precog is a laptop with two symmetrical touchscreens as its main output and input interfaces – no keyboards, no touchpads, no palm rests. It’s like the peak of a 2-in-1 laptop-tablet hybrid, though it remains to be seen how practical such a device can be.
The ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 UX580GE has a 5.5″ touchpad that’s actually a second display. It has native apps like providing touch controls for Microsoft Office, a calculator, and a media player, and you can actually extend your display to it as well. Drops 7/2018 for $2299.
Razer finally trimmed down the bezels in their previous Blade gaming laptop. The result is a 15.6″ display in the body of a 14″ laptop. The first model available has a 144Hz 1080p display and a GTX 1070 GPU; lower and higher end variants will be available starting 6/2018.
MSI’s new GS65 Stealth Thin is a laptop that’s equally suited for gaming and productivity on the go. It has a NVIDIA GTX1070 GPU, 8th Gen Intel Core-i7 CPU, a 15.6″ 1080p 144Hz display and a battery that lasts for up to 8h, all in a package that weighs only 4.1lb.
The updated version of Gigabyte’s low profile and long lasting gaming laptop comes with Intel’s 8th generation Core i7 CPU. It also has NVIDIA’s GTX 1070 Max Q GPU and a matte 1080p display with 144Hz refresh rate. There’s also an optional 4K display qith 60Hz refresh.
Razer’s Project Linda is a laptop dock for the Razer Phone. It has a 13.3″ 2560×1440 touchscreen, 200GB of storage, a USB-C port, a USB-A port, and a headphone jack. It charges the phone, while the mobile device can act as a second screen or a touchpad.
Console modder Ed’s Junk has turned the Xbox One X into an all-in-one portable system. But his Xbook One X doesn’t just come with a 21.5″ 1080p display. It also has a built-in keyboard that makes typing and navigating menus a breeze. We only wish it had a 4K screen.
Satechi’s laptop case is covered with a stylish nylon fabric that protects your laptop and small items from getting wet when it starts to rain. The main compartment is also fully padded to protect against sudden drops and scratches. Available in 13″ and 15″ sizes.
A versatile and affordable gaming laptop. The Nitro 5 Spin has a 15″ 1080p touchscreen and a 360º hinge so you can set it up in various ways, including as a simple tablet. But unlike most hybrids it can run most modern games thanks to its GTX 1050 GPU. Drops 10/2017 for $999.
