How to Use NVIDIA Cards with your Mac eGPU (Easiest Method)

With High Sierra, Apple has finally given native eGPU support to Macs and MacBooks. If you’re not familiar, eGPU is short for an external GPU (graphics processing unit) and refers to the ability for a computer (usually a laptop) to be able to use a GPU or graphics card in an external housing as if it was built into the computer. This means, with a supported eGPU housing and a GPU plugged in, you can get desktop-like graphics processing from your less powerful laptop. This is a feature that’s been built into Windows 10 for a bit now, but Macs …

Today Huawei launched a couple of devices with the most intriguing to me is the sequel to a laptop of theirs that I gave a glowing review to not that long ago: the Matebook X. Well, now we have the Matebook X Pro. And since Huawei was kind enough to give me a very limited time with the device before release, I figured I’d try and do one of my complete walkthroughs.

The Best Bluetooth Mechanical Keyboard You Can Buy (Video)

When looking for a Bluetooth keyboard we usually look for something that has a good sized layout and maybe has solid, clicky mechanical keys, right? With just that as criteria there are a lot of keyboards to choose from, really. But what if you add a uniqueness and badass retro look. Well then, you end up with the QwerkyWriter. The clearly typewriter inspired keyboard isn’t as old fashioned as it looks. It connects via Bluetooth to pretty much any device: Macs, iPads, iPhones, Android devices, Windows computers and tablets, in fact, the only thing it won’t work with is an actual …

Surface Book 2 on Table-2

Surface Book 2 (COMPLETE WALKTHROUGH) (Video)

I was finally able to get my hands on it, the 15″ top of the line Surface Book 2. I’ve honestly always been a fan of the Surface Book (and frankly Microsoft’s new direction for their hardware) but could never pull the trigger on buying a Book (or any Surface computer really) because they’ve always lacked a powerful enough GPU for me to be able to edit footage on it. But now, with the Surface Book 2 and the NVIDIA GTX 1060 inside the higher end 15″ model, I can finally give it a try. So here is my complete …

Windows 10S

Why Windows 10S is Just What Windows Needs (Video)

Windows 10S: faster, better battery life, and limited to Microsoft Store only apps. That last part doesn’t sound good but wait. Since it’s only store apps allowed they are vetted and optimized, and more importantly, are packaged in a way that they can’t affect Windows startup and are sandboxed from the rest of the system, much like MacOS. This is in comparison to regular exe programs that can basically do anything they want to your PC (and hence the for a lot more anti-virus software on a PC, etc.). Because they can’t affect the system’s registry and use a virtual …

Samsung showed off three new laptops today at CES. The Notebook 7 Spin, the Notebook 9, and the Notebook 9 Pen. Here’s what they’re all about. The first is the Notebook 7 Spin. It’s a 2-in-1 format with a 360 degree FHD 13.3″ screen. It’s Active Pen enabled but the pen is sold separately, has an 8th gen Intel i5 processor, 8GBs of RAM, and 256GBs of storage.

Best All-in-One

Best All-in-One PC for the Money (Video)

First, let’s quickly talk about why you’d want an All-in-One in the first place. The biggest reason is the screen size for the money. Most all-in-ones come with 23″ or higher (and sometimes much higher like the 34″ curved model from HP). A smaller sized screen laptop or desktop computer plus a separate monitor of that size would cost a decent amount more than an all-in-one usually. Besides that, newer ones save a lot of space and are even starting to look pretty darn sleek, too. So if you tend to sit in one place to use the computer (or …
