With a convertible design, up to an Intel Core i7-7700HQ processor (CPU), 16GB of DDR4 RAM, a 1TB PCIe solid-state drive (SSD), and an NVIDIA GTX 1050 graphics card (GPU) with 2GB of VRAM, the 15-inch Yoga 720 (starting at about $1,000) is a truly versatile device. Choose either an FHD (1920 x 1080) or UHD (3840 x 2160) display based on your preference, and enjoy an overall slim, light laptop that can turn into a tablet in seconds.
Bottom line: The 15-inch Yoga 720 is the best Lenovo laptop available now.

SteelSeries launched its M750 keyboard to showcase the company’s new QX2 mechanical switch. We took the new keyboard for a spin, and here are our thoughts.
The QX2 switches are the second-generation of SteelSeries’ in-house switches, and they’re debuting on the Apex M750 — the QX1 is found on the Apex M800. As well as sporting its own switches, SteelSeries also installed RGB lighting with full Prism support, an aluminum build, and various gaming features. For $139.99, the real question is whether or not the keyboard is worth that amount of cash.
The WRT32X is a serious router that will smartly analyze and prioritize your data for gaming and video streaming. Here is why it may be your next purchase.
With nearly every bit of technology around us getting smarter it makes sense to see wireless routers get their due. Linksys today is announcing its WRT32X, which combines the company’s prowess for Wi-Fi with Rivet Network’s Killer technology found in modern laptops from MSI, Razer, and Dell.
I’ve been using the WRT32X, which is now available for the not-so-humble price of $299.99, and here is why I think it’s worth considering.
After a long hiatus, Age of Empires IV is finally on the way to Windows 10.
Twenty years after the franchise’s debut, Microsoft has unveiled a fourth major installment to Age of Empires. Reviving the iconic real-time strategy (RTS) series for the modern day, the game follows an over decade-long hiatus since 2005’s Age of Empires III.
Announced to round off the Age of Empires Gamescom 2017 live show, Age of Empires IV will be releasing on Windows 10, developed by Relic Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios. Although little else is currently known, a brief animated trailer has been released, establishing the themes expected from the title.
Today’s event also provided an October release date for the upcoming remaster of Age of Empires, in the form of a “Definitive Edition” for Windows 10. Delivering refinements across the board, the game offers improved textures, support for 4K resolution, reworked animations, and new audio. Changes to gameplay have also been made, including an increased population limit, better pathfinding, and new zoom levels. Age of Empires II and Age of Empires III will also be getting the remaster treatment in the future.
Console gaming accessories often get bad reputations, for various reasons.
These include that knock-off “Player 2″ controller at your friend’s place, rechargeable battery packs that last around three hours on the first charge and an hour on the second, and that cheap headset that not only looks as though it came from outer space but sounds as though it’s receiving from outer space.
Thankfully, Microsoft has a tendency to only lend its official Xbox branding to high-quality accessories, and headsets from Turtle Beach and branded hard disk drives (HDDs) from Sandisk tend to elevate expectations decent third-party Xbox accessories. Until now, however, I’ve not been able to attribute that same level of quality to a third-party rechargeable battery kit.
Say hi to Controller Gear, which has products available on the official Microsoft Store. The company joins a handful of others raising my expectations of non-Microsoft Xbox accessories.
