Apple is all in on the M-series chips. At the “Spring Loaded” event on April 22, Apple revealed multiple products that contain the M1 processor.

Apple has constantly been releasing new ads and commercials proclaiming that “your next computer is not a computer.” Honestly, every time Apple has said that, I’ve been hoping that the spokesperson was right. I have always enjoyed using my classic 9.7" iPad Pro when I’m commuting, or even in the office, for taking notes or drafting an article. With the 2018 and 2020 generations of iPad Pros, the upcoming iPadOS 14, and the new Magic Keyboard with Trackpad, can it finally be the

If you have shopped for a laptop or tablet in the last decade, you have definitely come across the Microsoft Surface lineup. Debuting in 2012, the Surface filled a niche into which we didn't know we'd foray: a small tablet-sized computer that promised to be a replacement for bulky laptops. Its success was not immediate. The original Surface was riddled with problems, and not well received by the tech community, but so was the original iPad. Microsoft knew it was on to something, and in the subsequent years, the company has created a brand that

Folding and flexible displays are now a reality. First it was phones and, now, the tech is coming to computers. Lenovo showed off an early version of a foldable PC last year, and currently the company has a product scheduled to launch later this year: the ThinkPad X1 Fold. We saw it and we like it. As someone who has a tablet and laptop, and sometimes is forced to choose between one or the other, the idea of one device that does it all is very appealing. The

The first thing you should know about the new Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16 is that it’s probably the most powerful pen tablet on the market. Wacom calls it a “pen computer,” which might be more apt, considering the MobileStudio Pro functions as a stand-alone Windows 10 device. But whatever the name, whatever you want to call it, the fact remains that the MobileStudio Pro 16 is an absolute powerhouse. So much so, it’s basically without

Military Grade. Maximum Strength. Ford Tough. These are words and phrases we’ve all seen a million times. They’re used to characterize our gear, our gadgets, the pills we take, and the cars we drive. In many cases, they don’t really mean anything. They’re metaphorical marketing, hyperbolic hype words. They’re meant to convey the quality of a thing without being held to any particular standard. And lately, another one of these questionable qualifiers has popped up: Pro. Look around. Pro is everywhere. It’s in the names of our consumer
