The new Razer Blade Stealth is an unusual beast, in a good way. It exists as a product manufactured by a company that proudly states “For Gamers, By Gamers” on the cardboard box that it ships in. However, like the previous model, it doesn’t really feel like a gaming laptop. No, the Blade Stealth isn’t a gaming laptop. But it is one of the best ultrabooks you can buy.

Microsoft have made it even more difficult to choose which Surface product to buy with the release of the revised Surface Pro and the new Surface Laptop. Which one do you buy? Which one is better? Surface Pro. Surface Laptop. Surface Pro. Surface Laptop. The mental back-and-forth is real. We've put together this nifty guide to help you decide which one is the right one for you.

Panasonic has announced their new Toughbook CF-33 – a ruggedised 2-in-1 with a detachable keyboard. It has a 12-inch screen and is 37% thinner and 26% lighter than the CF-31 it supersedes. Battery life has been boosted to 10 hours. Not bad for a package that weighs in at 2.761 kg in laptop mode or 1.527 kg without the keyboard.

Dear Lifehacker, I just bought a new laptop with USB type C charging. The manufacturer's wall charger is rated 45W, and is not modular - the USB-C cable is all one piece with the power adaptor. I'd love to minimise the gear I take on the go, so ideally I'd like a wall charger that is modular so I can plug in a micro USB cable for my phone / Bluetooth headset, and a USB-C cable for my laptop.

The trend for laptop design has always leaned toward thinner, not fatter, leaving less space for ventilation. That makes a whining fan during intensive work like photo editing or gaming an unwanted but common occurrence. This is where laptop coolers come in.

If you're packing your laptop in a checked bag, the best advice is probably don't do it. From lost luggage to lost data, there's so much that can go wrong. With the recent discussion concerning a laptop ban in the US, though, you may not have a choice. Whatever the circumstance, you want to keep your laptop safe once you drop off your bag and go on your way.

The Surface Pro 5 launched recently and, as expected, it's the best iteration of Microsoft's 2-in-1 devices yet. But it's not the only new tech from Microsoft. They also launched the Surface Laptop, a Pro-looking device aimed at the crowd who would traditionally buy a Macbook Air.

The Surface Laptop became available in Australia last week, and I paid out of pocket to grab one on launch day. I've been using it ever since; here's what that's been like.

Over the last few weeks, I've been road testing a number of different Windows 10 tablets and 2-in-1 computers. When I started the journey, my goal was to replace an iPad Pro - which is a great piece of hardware but doesn't quite meet my specific needs - with something else. I really like the idea of a "proper" file system that lets me easily save documents and sync them to the could without any messing about. And a touchscreen is also part of my life. So, what did I choose?

After upgrading my laptop, I spent months feeling bad that I hadn't yet sold the old one. It sat around for months, until one day when a friend was over to work on a writing project. He hadn't brought his computer, so I fired up the spare laptop, whisking away my guilt. That spare computer has now become a dedicated guest computer.

The government is looking "very closely" at invoking a ban on passengers carrying laptops on international flights for certain legs. Prime Minister Turnbull told ABC News "We are taking into account all of the information and advice we're receiving internationally and we're working very closely with our partners. In due course, any announcements will be made formally though the Transport Minister."

Microsoft is releasing a new Surface laptop, imaginatively called the Surface Laptop. At first blush, it feels very nice. That should be the case given how much Microsoft talked up the build quality of its new take on the traditional clamshell, but that premium feel did carry over in the short time I was able to play with the device at the company’s New York City event on Tuesday. Read on for our first impressions and photos.

IDC’s quarterly appraisal of the PC market in Australia says shipments fell by 3.2 per cent in the last quarter of 2016 compared to the same period the year before. But while that sounds like bad news, the expectation was a drop of more than 10 per cent. In other words, the PC ship is sinking but not as fast as expected.

Ever been tempted to buy the latest shiny thing just because it has more features than its competitor? We call this "checkbox syndrome". It involves jumping at a new product just because it's an "upgrade", not because it's better. Before you fall for a list of tech specs designed to impress an audience during a big flashy announcement, stop and think about whether it's really an upgrade for you.

There's nothing good about running out of juice when you're trying to get stuff done and being unable to find a plug to recharge your battery in the meantime. If you work on the go at all, here are some easy tips to extend the life of your laptop's battery, both in a pinch and before you leave the house.

Microsoft's Surface Book has always been a unique gadget -- a great ultraportable laptop, with the extra appeal of a completely detachable tablet screen that contains all the smarts and processing to run proper Windows. The newest Performance Base variant of the Surface Book adds double the graphics power, without making any significant compromise on battery life -- but it's also using tech that Microsoft's competitors have left behind.
