HP Spectre 13t

High-quality build and powerful hardware. See at HP

HP’s refreshed 13-inch Spectre is a notebook laptop with a high build quality, thin chassis, and powerful hardware inside. Choose from 8th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 processors (CPU), up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM, and up to a 1TB PCIe solid-state drive (SSD). The 13.3-inch touch display is available in FHD or 4K, and the ports, including two Thunderbolt 3 (4x lanes of PCIe) and a USB-C 3.1, look to the future. Configurations start at about $1,050. Bottom line: The HP Spectre 13t is one fine laptop, and looks to be the best overall for most people. Best HP Laptop of 2018

I like this laptop because it is lightweight, but also durable.  16GB of DD3 Ram should be more than enough.  HP is still one of my top brands that I recommend to my customers at Whitney PC Repair.

Razer Core X is a lower-priced eGPU for laptop gaming

Razer has an all-new, much cheaper external GPU launching alongside the new Blade 15. The Razer Core is a great product for folks who want the convenience of a laptop but also want a full-on gaming PC when they’re at home. It doesn’t just hook up a desktop graphics card to a Blade Stealth, but offers a plethora of connectivity. But it comes at a price. However, if you only want it for its GPU capabilities, there’s now another way. And it’s a lot more affordable. Razer Core X is a lower-priced eGPU for laptop gaming

9 laptop bags we legitimately love

Everybody needs a good laptop bag. These are Team Windows Central’s current favorites. A laptop without a good bag to tote it around is like toast without butter or jam; an ice cream sundae with no cherry; a margarita minus the tequila; a you get the point. Laptops are purposefully portable, but if you want to really get the most of your notebook PC, you need a quality bag to pair it with. Laptop bags aren’t simply about function, however. They’re expressions of individual style and personality. 9 laptop bags we legitimately love

How to find the best monitor for your PC

Buying a new monitor doesn’t need to be a challenge. Here’s what you need to know. PC monitor technology (and display tech in general) is advancing at some speed, and already it can prove to be confusing for consumers to decide which monitor they need to purchase. Not only does one need to consider screen size, but also synchronization technology and port availability, just to name a few things. Luckily, if you’re having some issues, it’s not difficult when you break everything down. How to find the best monitor for your PC

Corsair K95

See at Amazon

The Corsair K95 is not cheap but you get a ridiculous amount of gaming keyboard for the price. You get a choice of Cherry MX Speed or Brown switches, the former being better for gaming while sacrificing a little in everyday use. The K95 is also packed with RGB lighting, macro keys and a really handy volume wheel. The K95 is built with an aluminum frame, so it will withstand the rigors of the daily gaming grind, textured keycaps in places such as the space bar, and 8MB of onboard storage for lighting and macro profiles so you don’t need access to any software to make them operate when you’re on the road. The K95 costs around $200 for the MX Brown version or $160 for the MX Speed. Best Gaming Keyboards in 2018

Microsoft Surface Book 2

See at Microsoft

Microsoft really took its time honing the Precision touchpad on the Surface Book 2, and the result is an amazing laptop with an equally amazing touchpad. The second generation notebook is as good, if not better than the first. It lets you take advantage of all Windows 10 Precision gestures, and enjoy the glide of the smooth glass finish. The touchpad is a single piece without visible buttons, adding to the overall sleek design of the Surface Book. Configurations start at about $1,199. Bottom line: Choose the Microsoft Surface Book 2 if you want the laptop with the single best touchpad. Best Laptop by Touchpad of 2018
