Feature: In a good way, of course

The Asus Zephyrus Duo could be the Wii U of gaming laptops

The Asus ROG Zephryus Duo is unlike any other gaming laptop I've ever seen. It's one of the first wave of dual-screen gaming laptops coming out over the course of this year, and it's both baffling and beautiful in equal measure. It's beautiful because the engineering on its secondary 14.1in display is just so damn gorgeous. Seriously, I made a GIF of its sturdy, rock…

Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake H-series laptop CPUs are absolute speed demons

Intel have lifted the lid on their H-series of 10th Gen Comet Lake laptop CPUs today, and gee whiz they're nippy. With top clock speeds reaching all the way up to 5.3GHz in some cases, Intel are quite rightly calling these "the world's fastest mobile processors". It's not just the really high-end CPUs that have super high frequency speeds, either. Of the six new CPUs…

Feature: GIFs are the new laptop stickers

Asus’ Zephyrus G14 laptop is a compact powerhouse with a strange animated LED lid

As well as a plentiful supply of new gaming monitors to coo over this week, this year's CES tech bonanza has also brought us dozens of new gaming laptops, including the world's most powerful 14in laptop, the Asus Zephyrus G14. But it's not so much the G14's souped up innards that have me all aflutter (although its 4th Gen AMD Ryzen CPU and RTX 2060…

The excellent Alienware m15 gaming laptop is $750 off right now

Dell's Alienware m15 is hands down one of the best gaming laptops I've tested this year, so imagine your deals herald's excitement when I learned it's one of the current doorbuster mega deals in the Dell US Black Friday sale. It's the RTX 2060 model that's up for grabs right now, and whereas this particular model would normally set you back a cool $2250, you…

This Asus ROG laptop is probably the best Black Friday gaming laptop deal I’ve seen so far

What's this? Another visit from your deals herald today? I do apologise, I really do, but I simply must tell you about this Asus ROG Strix gaming laptop deal I've found, because this Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti powered gaming machine is really quite a steal in Best Buy's Black Friday sale. Normally $1400, the Asus ROG Strix G731GU-BI7N9 is now down to a very sweet…

Feature: The next evolution of the gaming laptop?

The good, the bad and the ugly of tomorrow’s dual-screen gaming laptops

When I first saw HP's Omen X 2S dual-screen gaming laptop a couple of months ago, I thought they were having a laugh. After all, what could you possibly do with such a tiny secondary display above the main keyboard when you're playing games? It screamed 'gimmick' at the time, but after visiting Intel's Open House event last week (in between getting enslaved by the…

HP Omen’s ear-cooling gaming headset returns as the even more brilliantly named Mindframe Prime

By far one of the best hardware announcements to come out of last year's Gamescom was HP's ear-cooling Omen Mindframe headset. The name was just pure, unbridled brilliance, and its chilly, sweat-blasting thermoelectric ear cups were novel and worked surprisingly well in practice, even if its suspension-style headband didn't quite hold up comfort-wise once I got one in for review. Now, the Mindframe is back…

Feature: A sea change for gaming laptops

Acer Predator Triton 500 review: Finally, a gaming laptop that isn’t a jet engine in disguise

The Acer Predator Triton 500 is probably the first gaming laptop I've tested where I've almost completely forgotten it's a gaming laptop. Sure, the keyboard's RGB backlight is a bit of a giveaway, as is the blue LED Predator logo on the back of the display, but this is by far one of the quietest gaming laptops I've had on my desk in quite some…

Feature: AMD's Ryzen 7 CPU meets Nvidia's GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q GPU

Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 review: A slim 1080p gaming laptop for just over a grand

When AMD said they were going to get serious about sticking more of their 3rd Gen Ryzen 3000 H mobile CPU chips into proper gaming laptops this year, they really weren't kidding. Take the Asus ROG Zephyrus G, the ever so slightly fatter cousin of the ultra slim Asus ROG Zephyrus S I reviewed earlier in the year. It's not an outright AMD machine -…

HP’s Omen X 2S is the world’s first gaming laptop to have two screens for some reason

In a classic case of 'doing it because we can'-itis, HP have unveiled the world's first dual-screen gaming laptop. Dubbed the Omen X 2S, this gaming laptop not only has a regular 15.6in screen, but a smaller, almost touch pad-sized screen beneath it sitting above the keyboard. According to HP, you see, 82% of people use their phones for messaging while playing games these days,…

Feature: Which laptop will emerge victorious?

Acer Predator Helios 500 review: GTX 1070 vs Vega 56

Take a look at the specs of any of today's gaming laptops and there's a 99.9% chance it's got an Intel CPU and Nvidia graphics chip inside it. That's mostly because AMD haven't really bothered with gaming laptops for the last couple of years, but that's slowly starting to change. Case in point: Acer's Predator Helios 500 laptop, which is available in both AMD and…

Acer’s Predator Helios 700 laptop has a mad, extendable keyboard for superior cooling

Acer have unveiled a new monster 17.3in gaming laptop that has an extendable keyboard to help keep it cool. Dubbed the Predator Helios 700, Acer’s new flagship laptop promises “desktop gaming performance on the go” thanks to its full-fat Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics chip and one of Intel’s brand-new 9th Gen Core i9 mobile processors. Just make sure you don't whip it out on…

Feature: ...with a not so super slim price

Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 review: A super slim Nvidia RTX gaming laptop

If you've ever had to lug your laptop around all day, you'll know the importance of having one that's thin, light and doesn't kill your shoulders after spending eight to ten hours in a backpack. I certainly do, and let me tell you, hauling around anything over 2kg for 8-10 hours everyday is absolute murder on the old spine. At 2.1kg, the Asus ROG Zephyrus…

A bug in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is borking laptop performance, but a fix is on the way

If you've been keeping track of my gaming laptop reviews lately, you'll have noticed that Assassin's Creed Odyssey has been murdering a lot more than dodgy cult members lately. It's also been slashing the game's frame rate, turning what should be silky smooth performance into a stuttering sideshow. When I first encountered the problem on the Alienware m15, I was worried it might be a…

Feature: ...and RGBs that will scar you for life

Asus ROG Strix Scar II review: RTX on the go

Nvidia's first crop of RTX gaming laptops are finally here and the first one to slide across my desk is Asus' ROG Strix Scar II GL504GW. Packed with an Intel Core i7-8750H processor, 16GB of RAM and one of Nvidia's new RTX 2070 chips, this 15.6in laptop is primed and ready to take full advantage of its 1920x1080 resolution display and 144Hz refresh rate, but…

Feature: Roll out the red carpet

Alienware m15 review: An inc-red-ible gaming laptop

The new Alienware m15 is quite possibly one of the loveliest gaming laptops I've ever tested. I'm a sucker for anything red (it's my favourite colour) but when you stick it on a chassis that stands just 21mm high off the ground and weighs a comparatively non-brick-like 2.16kg with a Core i7-8750H and a GTX 1070 inside it, you have my full and undivided attention.

CES 2019: Dell’s stuck a Core i9 desktop CPU in their new Alienware Area-51m laptop

While everyone else was busy adding Nvidia's new RTX graphics chips to their laptops at this year's CES, Dell's been busy with something else entirely for their new flagship Alienware Area-51m laptop. As well as being the first laptop to bear their new Alienware Legend design, it's also the world's first laptop to have a full-blown desktop Intel Core i9-9900K CPU crammed inside it. And…
