The Zephyrus is the perfect laptop for someone who doesn’t want a laptop – The Verge

Sunday, October 29, 2017

But this time, it’s to prevent fliers from putting large electronics, like laptops, into their checked luggage. This seems like an about-face. Earlier this year, a chaotically implemented ban did the exact opposite, demanding passengers on flights from certain Middle Eastern and African countries pack tablets, DVD players, and laptops into their suitcases,…

The best 15-inch laptops of 2017 – Digital Trends

Thursday, October 26, 2017

Like their 13-inch counterparts, 15-inch laptops keep getting thinner and lighter, but they’re still the same workhorses they’ve always been — and that’s a good thing.
