Hands-on Review

This holiday season, many people are out and about buying new Wi-Fi-enabled cameras, televisions, music players and more. Many more are buying laptops, tablets and desktop PCs, all with wired and wireless capabilities. Then these people are going home, unboxing their purchases, and waiting patiently for the wireless fairy to come down and connect everything.

It appears that not even all-in-one (AIO) desktop computers are immune to the “tablet craze” taking over the computing industry. It’s no secret that tablets have grown in popularity, primarily for their ease of use and portability, but their influence has leaked over to other devices.

When you're looking for a gift for someone less technologically inclined than yourself, you might find that choosing the right gift can be tough. How technologically disinclined are they? Are we talking just a little behind the times? A generation behind the iPad? Still using eight-track tapes?

It’s nice to take opportunities like holiday parties and corporate gatherings to say thank you to your co-workers, colleagues, employees and clients. If you’re on a gift list of some kind, or if you’re looking for a present that says "thank you" while still keeping things professional, then you’ve come to the right place.

Ultrabooks are more than just glorified netbooks or tablets with keyboards attached to them. They don’t sacrifice performance just to fit in your book bag. In fact, Ultrabooks find that perfect balance between fast, reliable performance and ultraportability.

Whether it’s Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Cyber Monday or Begrudgingly-Back-to-Regular-Retail-Prices Tuesday, purchasing a computer can be quite daunting. Chances are, the notebook and desktop computers on sale are prebuilt and have limited flexibility when it comes to specs.

I know you’re probably out there right now looking to purchase me your usual assortment of socks and sweaters as holiday gifts, but I was hoping this year to leave this letter on the kitchen counter and have you read this before you went shopping.

Many students, artists and creative professionals have a strong taste for everything Apple. The Mac computer brand is more a lifestyle than a mere product. People use Mac computers because they are configured to perform in a manner that enhances creativity.

In October of 2012, Microsoft released Windows 8, their latest operating system. Banking on a new touch-based, user-friendly interface, Windows 8 is vastly different from its Windows 7 predecessor. The first thing you’ll notice is that the traditional Start menu that Microsoft has had for the longest time was replaced with a new Start screen using “live tiles.”

Tablets may seem like a fad to power PC users, but their success last year has turned heads in the industry. Tablets are not only here to stay, they’re commanding far more interest from consumers than was previously thought. Although Apple’s iPad still reigns in the tablet market, many princes have come forward to try and claim the throne.

The first thing you notice about the ASUS PB278Q 27” Widescreen LED-Backlit LCD Monitor is its large 27-inch screen. Considering that this is a monitor and you’ll be sitting much closer to it than you would to an HDTV, the 27 inches really becomes magnified.

Windows 8 is more than just an updated operating system from Microsoft. While previous versions of Windows usually got a visual bump with each update, it never strayed far from its trademark user interface of a Start button and a task bar.

Remember when Mac computers only had USB 2.0 ports? Well, now that the 2012 MacBook Air and Pro models include USB 3.0 ports, your choice is no longer limited to just USB 2.0 or Thunderbolt external hard drives, which usually have a huge disparity in terms of storage space and price.
