iPad Air vs. Retina iPad Mini: Which tablet is right for you?

Apple’s newest iPad, the iPad Air, is finally here — it’s available online and in stores in 42 countries and territories starting today. But before you rush out and order one, remember: this isn’t the only iPad. In late November, the second updated Apple tablet of 2013, the iPad Mini with Retina Display, will be released as well.   So, which iPad should you get? Let’s assume you’re already reading this article because you want to buy a new iPad versus another tablet. The decision becomes this: iPad Air or Retina Mini? Based on what we’ve seen so far, the decision’s never been harder to make. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. First off: don’t get the iPad 2 I can make this real easy for you: don’t get the iPad 2. It’s $399 for 16GB of storage. It first came out in March 2011. And, you can buy a far faster, Retina-enabled new iPad Mini for the same price. Last year’s iPad Mini, now at $299, is a more attractive proposition; it also has newer cameras. Keep in mind, though, that the extra $100 should buy you much better performance to go with that improved screen. Read More...

Xbox One vs. PS4: A Guide to Making the Toughest Gaming Decision in Years

Xbox One vs. PS4: A Guide to Making the Toughest Gaming Decision in Years

It was 1981. Ronald Reagan was president, MTV had just launched and choosing a video game system was easy. The Atari 2600 was the best and most popular choice. Sure, the graphics weren’t great, the wood paneling on the box was an eye sore and the controllers weren’t high tech, but the ability to play games right in the living room provided, as an Atari commercial said, “hours of fun for the whole family.” This holiday season buying a video game system is a bit more complicated. For the first time in about seven years, both Microsoft and Sony have brand new consoles on the market. The Microsoft Xbox One hit shelves Friday for $500 and a week earlier the Sony Playstation 4 arrived for $400. With both systems the graphics have been improved, new services have been baked-in and there is the promise of “hours of fun for the whole family,” just like the Atari. But which one is the one to get? Read...

Microsoft Surface RT Review | Cnet

“Very impressive tablet that allows for creation/typing” Pros First tablet that truly can be used for creation and typing, and that actually lives up to that need Ports and expandable memory :USB,HDMI compatibility, SDXC cards Fast and beautiful to use (Win 8 RT) Long battery life Awesome kickstand and keyboard Cons Obviously very light on popular iOS and Android apps for now. Windows RT is really good, but will need some TLC and a few updates to smooth out the rough edges. Learning to use another new OS takes a bit of getting used to. Wish Office 2013 was Metro Read...

Amazon Kindle Fire HD review | Cnet

An e-reader alternative with tablet extras The good: The Amazon Kindle Fire HD (2013) is faster than its predecessors, has an affordable price, and runs the latest and greatest version of the Kindle Fire OS. The bad: Its default storage size — 8GB — is too little space for most tablet needs. Also, there are no cameras and Amazon’s video chat customer support is not available. Ad removal still costs an extra $15. The bottom line: The 2013 Kindle Fire HD works perfectly as an e-reader with a few extra tablet features, but users looking to take full advantage of Amazon’s ecosystem should pay more for the Fire HDX.

HP Chromebook 14 review: PCWorld

HP Chromebook 14 review: PCWorld

HP Chromebook 14 This Chromebook comes with a 14-inch display and cheery colors, making for a better overall user experience than you’ll get from cheaper models.   HP’s new Chromebook 14 didn’t have to do much to impress me. Most other Chromebooks are small, cheaply made machines with underwhelming specs, including measly 11-inch displays. The one exception, of course, is Google’s gorgeous Chromebook Pixel, which almost no one can afford.   The Chromebook 14 is affordable (if not super cheap) at $300, and it has a 14-inch display. It seems not to suffer from the AC-adapter overheating that halted sales of its cousin, the Chromebook 11 (an unfortunate turn of events, because that’s a nice little machine). I understand why most Chromebooks are taking the low road to attract student and casual home users, but the Chromebook 14 is a reasonable middle ground that makes for a much better user experience.   There’s no way you’ll mistake the Chromebook 14 for its predecessor, the HP Pavilion 14 Chromebook, which debuted earlier this year. That Chromebook came in just one color–black–and aside from its large display, it felt pretty cheeseball, with a lot of hard plastics and a clackety feel. Read More >>...

Why Aren’t Touch Screen Laptops Catching On

Why Aren’t Touch Screen Laptops Catching On

If skyrocketing tablet sales and cute videos of babies that confuse magazines for iPads are any indication, touchscreens are the interface of the future. But there’s just one problem with that portentous prediction: If it’s true, laptop buyers are stuck with one foot in the past. The market analysts at NPD DisplaySearch say touchscreen notebooks just ain’t selling. Touchscreen laptops only accounted for 7 percent of all laptop sales in the first six months of 2013, the firm claims, though that’s expected to rise to 11 percent by the end of the year. The news isn’t good for Microsoft, which overhauled its Windows operating system to showcase a new, finger-friendly “Modern” interface in Windows 8. Touchscreen laptops were hard to come by in 2012, and Microsoft pointed to that to at least partially explain the slowing PC sales of the last holiday season.  Read More...
