    21 May 2015, 7:09 am by: Chippy

    The Lenovo S21e 11.6-inch Windows laptop has popped up in locations across the globe and it’s yet another low-cost notebook. It’s almost the Flex 3 11 without the flex! The design is similar to the Lenovo N20 Chromebook and it has very similar…
  • Macbook. No Touch = No Go.

    20 May 2015, 9:21 am by: Chippy

    Laptopmag published an interesting article about touchscreen laptops last week. “Why you shouldn’t buy a touchscreen laptop.” I strongly disagreed, along with others, on a Facebook comment thread.  Touch can be extremely useful, productive and fun if…

    7 May 2015, 12:40 pm by: Chippy

    Weekends away with friends should happen without distraction from smartphones, tablets and laptops, games and social media. Not for me. Tomorrow I leave for what you might call a ‘boys weekend’ and it requires a very special blend of classic tech. I…
