According to The Wall Street Journal, Google is preparing a touchscreen Chromebook for release late 2013. This rumour sprouted up a few months ago when a YouTube video about the touchscreen Chromebook Pixel was leaked. The newest versions of the Chromebook were released about six months ago, when Acer and Samsung took a second shot at the project with cheaper versions of the netbook. Lenovo and HP have added their versions since then. Google may…

Microsoft has released a blog post on the Surface Pro stock issue, saying that units will be available in the US and Canada next week. The lack of stock is questionable, while Microsoft would have you believe it is high demand, many argue Surface Pro stock was at a minimum amount. Many companies are now doing this to build hype on the product. If a product sells out in stores, it is deemed by many…

The new touchscreen Chromebook Pixel may have just been accidentally launched on YouTube, after a slip of the Chromebook. The original video has quickly been taken down, but more have sprouted up on YouTube, thanks to the embed code attached. We have heard some rumours that Google is preparing to launch its own Nexus Chromebook, with the huge uproar in sales these past few years. The Nexus will feature in house development and a touchscreen display. Chromebook…

Microsoft has taken to Reddit to address some of the problems with the Surface Pro battery life and storage capabilities. Reviews of the Surface Pro have been pretty good, although there is still a lot to be desired, and two of the main problems are the battery life and storage. In the Reddit post, Panos Panay, head of the Surface Engineering Team, answered the AMA in two segments, one about the Surface Pro battery life…

The Pavilion 14 Chromebook is HP’s first step in the Chrome OS world, previously being loyal to Windows. HP has yet to make a successful move to the mobile world and previous attempts have been shattered in failure. Hewlett Packard don’t seem to believe that Windows 8 is the best service to run or believe Microsoft and their move into the PC/tablet world is the entirely the right idea. Instead, they believe that the Chrome OS, that…

After the initial Chromebook’s by Acer and Samsung didn’t sell very well, many discarded Google’s idea of an web-only operating system netbook that offers Google apps. As the second batch of sales are in full swing, partners with Google are starting to notice how the Chromebook could be a great cheap netbook that offers better design and better speeds than the Windows versions. In all sense, making a netbook with Google seems like a more…

Microsoft has finally revealed the date when the Surface Pro will go on sale and after slight delays, we will see it hitting stores on February 9, but that is only in the US and Canada to begin with. Surface General Manager Panos Panay tweeted that he was off to the Surface factory to see the Pro units shipping “in the coming weeks”, Surface Pro will be exactly the same as what Microsoft showed at CES…

Samsung and Acer have been fully invested in Google’s Chromebook and enterprise/school sales have been pretty tremendous. While the Chromebook may be a consumer flop, there have been millions sold by the truck-load to enterprises. Lenovo are growing at such a rate it’s incredible. In the past few years they have went from near obscurity in the US and Europe to one of the biggest PC/laptop manufacturers. They have been able to grow a solid…

With sales on Chromebook’s not one of the highest in the Google umbrella, we suspected that Google will look to let the netbooks die, but they decided against this and launched two new editions a few weeks ago. Samsung and Acer still seem eager to ship the low cost netbooks, and Google still want to give cloud computing a push. One of the major factors of the new Chromebook was that they were cheaper than…

Google had a rather meagre start with their Chromebooks when first launched. Comparing Chrome OS to Android, it is fair to say there hasn’t been as much advancement or as much usage on Chrome OS. While this doesn’t seem likely to change, considering the uprise in phones and tablets and the downturn of PC’s and laptops. Many still don’t understand why they would get a Chromebook over another ultrabook that has Windows OS. Having just…

With Windows 8 now official, a lot of people are curious as to which new laptops will be coming out ready to rock it. Interested in what Dell has to offer? The Round Rock, Texas-based hardware giant recently unveiled the XPS 12, the latest addition to their XPS line, and it’s one Windows 8 ultrabook that’s worth checking out. What makes the Dell XPS 12 stand out from the crop of upcoming Windows 8 ultrabooks…

The idea of a hybrid PC/tablet device is certainly an interesting one. Up until now, such devices were generally bulky and had clunky user interfaces that truly didn’t lend themselves to a great touch experience. Sony seems to think Windows 8 could change all this and has announced the VAIO Duo 11 as its convertible offering. Right now there isn’t a lot of official information out about the tablet, other than we do know it…
