    The question comes sharp and laced with an incredulity borne of too much exposure to the power-user tech-news cycle: you actually like the Pixel C? Why? It's a fair question. Our review, while largely positive, called into question the Pixel C's pricing and its apparent identity crisis –is it a tablet or is it a convertible?– while other outlets dove deep to discover its troubled upbringing. With such a damning origin story and an overpriced accessory practically required to make the thing worth using, why would a so-called technology expert like me take a $650 hit to build ...

    Is the iPad Pro a personal computing replacement? Will spending at least $1,067 for a tablet, keyboard and stylus as opposed to an 11-inch MacBook Air with an accessory or two really make sense? Why not consider a Microsoft Surface? Well, it depends on your way of thinking when it comes to tablets and laptops. Microsoft's Senior Communications Manager for Surface Dan Laycock spoke to TrustedReviews about his company's line and where he believes Apple stands. // d;d++)c[d].apply(u,n);return u}function a(t,e){f[t]=s(t).concat(e)}function s(t){return f[t]||[]}function c(){return n(e)}var ...

    It's been a slow rollover in the personal computing world from disparate terminals and screens and mice and dongles to a more civilized and tidy tablet form factor. Convertible laptops coming out of Lenovo, VAIO and Microsoft are definitely a good sign of things to come. It turns out that Toshiba wants to get in on the consumer end, too. It's introducing the dynaPad, a 12-inch full HD tablet running on Windows 10. The screen make-up is a sandwich of Gorilla Glass 3 panes and a sensor mesh, topped off with an oleophobic coating to combat against nasty fingerprints. That display is housed ...

    What does ATIV even stand for? Whatever the case may be, Samsung decided to associate that brand with its Windows products. While the Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile schedule has been extremely light, the company seems to be recommitted to the notebook form factor. And it's doing so with two new Windows 10 entries and also some unique punches for each of them. The ATIV Book 9 Spin, pictured above, is a 13.3-inch convertible laptop/tablet hybrid. The more conventional, but grizzlier ATIV Book 9 Pro's screen measures in at 15.6 inches with a 4K display, also touchable. The Pro's display is ...

    Microsoft blew plenty of socks off with the tablet and notebook debuts during its Windows 10 device day. The Surface Pro 4, Surface Book and the Surface Type Cover look completely capable in rousing the white collar masses this holiday season. And as we drag in towards first shipments, Microsoft seems to be realizing it. The company is now apparently shipping an estimated 1.5 million Surface Pros for the holiday quarter, up from just under a million as originally intended. Supply chain sources also say that Microsoft could end the year having sold 4 to 5 million Surface Pros. Surfaces ...

    Sometimes you're at an IFA party that focuses on accessories and peripherals, not expecting to see hot new kit from one of Microsoft's top hardware partners, and all you've got to shoot a hands-on video is an HTC One X. But sometimes the product is so interesting, it's worth it. Last night was one of those times. We ran into HP at an IFA after-hours showcase, where the company was showing off a wide spectrum of notebooks and convertibles. The Envy x2 wasn't scheduled for an appearance on the show floor, so David from HP graciously agreed to take us on a guided tour of the new hardware ...
