MSI unveils a high-end all-in-one gaming PC

The all-in-one gaming PC is a rare beast, and with good reason: Like a laptop, these machines are typically difficult to upgrade. Like a desktop, however, they aren't portable. It seems like the worst of both worlds -- but not anymore. New machines have been rolling out at CES, bucking the standard …

Samsung soundbar gives you Dolby Atmos out of the box

MSI GT72 Dominator review: a worthy successor to a great gaming notebook

The last time I saw MSI's Dominator laptop, I was sick of it. There wasn't anything wrong with it, but at the time, the product name belonged to the GT70: a powerhouse gaming machine that hasn't evolved much since its introduction in 2012. Back then, I loved the machine's heavy chassis, superb …

HP's slim 'Omen' gaming laptop conjures up Voodoo memories

Remember that gaming laptop HP was rumored to be building, the one @evleaks said would rival Alienware's rigs? Well, it's here -- and it's not quite what the retired leaker expected. Instead of a thick, meaty machine to match the Alienware 14 and 17, HP is putting out the Omen, a 15-inch gaming …

MSI's latest gaming laptop packs a mechanical keyboard

Using a laptop for gaming usually means making a few sacrifices, including the keyboard; you often have to make do with thin, flat keys that don't compare to what you get with many desktops.

When we first saw Polaroid's Socialmatic camera, the obvious conclusion to make was that the company had simply decided to turn the Instagram logo into a device.

Lenovo's new gaming laptop is surprisingly light for a 17-inch machine
