Pretty much every notebook computer on the market today ships with a touchpad to move the mouse pointer around the screen. And we've seen those pads become larger with new materials used to make them smoother and more comfortable to use. But Asus has gone one step further with their new ASUS Zenbook Pro 15 (UX580), announced at Computex yesterday. They've made the touchpad into a second touchscreen display.

You can build a perfectly good loungeroom / home theatre PC and completely skip a discrete video card. That said, if you want your machine to have enough grunt to run most games at reasonable settings, it can be wise to shell out for a decent GPU. MSY is currently selling ASUS-branded RX460s for $119, a nice discount on hardware that usually retails for $150 or more.
As someone who lives and works in a city, I witness just how scarce space is becoming on daily basis -- from fitting more people into an office to apartments.
People like me need smart solutions for this problem, including when it comes to tech. Anyone who is passionate about their rigs don't want to compromise on specs to save space. And we don't have to.
My family is big on Christmas movies. We always made a big deal out of it when I was a kid.
Even as an adult I enjoy being able to go home for the holidays to watch some of the heart-warming classics -- Die Hard, Home Alone and Batman Returns.

I've been a fan of ASUS' ZenBook series since the UX32VD, which packed not only a good CPU and discrete GPU (in the form of the 620M), but had upgradeable RAM and hard drive.

But let's focus on what we have today -- the UX303UB, which comes with a 2.5GHz i7, 940M GPU, 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD -- all for less than $1300.

The end of financial year is great time to buy new tech gear. If you use your computer at home for work -- you may be able to claim your PC as a tax deduction. That applies to some students, too. Further, small businesses with total incomes less than $2 million can write off purchases valued under $6500 immediately in the year the cost occurred. So what new laptops/tablets are best for work or play? Here are some ideas.
When Google announced its Chromebox For Meetings solution back in February, it promised it would be released in Australia "later this year". It's now officially available -- but with a hefty "Australia tax" markup.
