7 things you'll like about Always Connected PCs — and 3 you…won't [Video]

Taking an honest look at what works and what stinks about Windows 10 on ARM.

Windows 10 on ARM is easily one of the most exciting – and divisive – things to happen with Microsoft’s continually evolving OS. Running full Windows 10 on a PC powered by the same processor as your smartphone has many advantages, but many people are ready to dismiss it without ever trying it out, but it’s not all bad news – far from it.

I’ve been using the HP Envy x2 with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 for a few weeks now (and the full time while at Microsoft Build). While an Always Connected PC is not for everyone, you can consider me a convert. I’m now using the Envy x2 exclusively when I’m not behind my desktop workhorse.

So, what do I like and don’t like about the Windows 10 on ARM experience? I made a quick video to share some thoughts on the topic.

New Prey achievements tease possible Moon-related DLC

Prey should be getting new content soon.

A few months ago, Bethesda teased a Moon-related announcement for Prey, but then went silent. It seems like an expansion is imminent because the game’s achievement list was updated on Steam and they tease just that. Lashman, a revered industry insider and generally lovely bloke, broke the story on Twitter.

A beautiful hi-res display is this laptop’s main feature.

See at Amazon

With a 3,000 x 2,000 resolution touch IPS display (13.5 inches) with beautiful color and near-perfect contrast, an attachable keyboard, and an active pen, the CHUWI Hi13 (altogether about $450) is our pick for the best laptop in this price range. You get a 7th Gen Intel Celeron N3450 processor (CPU), 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of eMMC storage for light duty tasks, and can take advantage of a wide selection of ports to connect your peripherals.

Bottom line: The best laptop in this price range is the CHUWI Hi13.

Sprint promo offers free unlimited data with Qualcomm Snapdragon PCs

Free data is great, but there are some caveats.

U.S. carriers are on board with supporting Always Connected PCs, but Sprint is looking to step things up a notch when it comes to data. ;(function(){(new Image()).src=’×1.gif?tid=mobilenations&subid=UUwpUdUnU56069&cb=’+(Math.floor(Math.random()*1000000));}());

What Destiny 2 could (and should) learn from Borderlands 2

As Destiny 2 continues to suffer due to community discontent, Bungie should look back at Borderlands 2 to see how it did the looter-shooter right.

Destiny is a franchise that has struggled to consistently impress its player base ever since the original game in 2014. Both Destiny and Destiny 2 have been heavily criticized for lack of content, reuse of assets, slow post-launch support, and a slew of other issues. Though the recent Warmind expansion for Destiny 2 improved some things, the community is still disappointed in the state of the game overall.

As Bungie struggles to win back the trust of its players, it should look back to Borderlands 2, another looter-shooter, to see how it can improve. Here’s why.

Future of Windows is all about collaboration — for businesses and consumers

Microsoft may have finally found its purpose in this world, and it’s about breaking down barriers.

The history of Windows has, in a sense, always been about getting things done, whether it’s writing a term paper, doing an Excel document, doing supercomputing, or just good ol’ Minesweeper. But the world that Windows grew up in has radically changed since the mid-1990s with the growth of the internet.

Back in February, our Senior Writer Zac Bowden reported that the Surface Hub 2 – along with unannounced products like HoloLens 2 and “Project Andromeda” – are part of a concerted effort built around collaboration in the modern workspace, along with productivity and 3D Mixed Reality. The Surface Hub 2 official reveal thisw week affirms that the primary concept behind the device is getting people to work together for idea-expression, whether they are in the same room or across the planet.

Here's how to get 25% off almost 200 Osprey products at Amazon

Amazon is offering 25% off a huge selection of Osprey items. Osprey is a brand that rarely goes on sale, and with 195 items to choose from, this is definitely a deal worth checking out.

For instance, the Osprey Farpoint 40 Travel Backpack is down to $119.95. That’s the best price it has been on Amazon since last November. It has 4.6 out of 5 stars based on almost 500 customer reviews, and I personally would highly recommend this bag to anyone. It’s the perfect carry-on size, and it saved my life on a multi-flight vacation where I didn’t want to check any bags. There are compression straps on the inside and outside, and you can convert it from a backpack to a duffel bag at a moment’s notice. It has a few different harnesses that are adjustable for different body types, and there’s a built-in laptop sleeve, too. If you only ever buy one travel bag, it should be this one.
