Dell’s XPS 15 vs. Apple’s MacBook Pro 15 takes its place the same epic list of rivalries as Batman vs. Joker, Red Sox vs. Yankees, and Sheldon vs. Wil Wheaton. Both laptops are intended as workhorses for professionals on the go. And although there are many competitors out there with similar specs, the XPS 15 and MacBook Pro 15 just can’t let the other have the last word. So in the…

MacBook Pro: Is the Touch Bar a gimmick? – CIO

Posted: Thursday, April 27, 2017

Hipster-Police: “I also think they missed out when they didn’t add a haptic engine to the Touch Bar. I have long since got used to it though, and luckily it doesn’t bother me at all. As for its usefulness, it wasn’t what sold me to the computer. I treat it as something good to have over a must have: it’s far more useful than standard function keys, but I didn’t…

It is a sleek, all-metal body with CNC and dimensions of 334mm by 222mm. It is large enough to be a fully-featured laptop — if fitted with the optional keyboard, yet the tablet shouts high-quality mobile device. The tablet itself…

Slim, powerful HP Elitebook is good choice for a business laptop but touchscreen may be overkill – Irish Independent

Posted: Thursday, April 27, 2017

There’s a 3.5mm audio headphone jack (hurray!) two regular USB ports, a USB-C port, HDMI port and microSD card port. As someone who uses cameras a bit, I would have preferred a full-size SD card port but the USB-C port is handy in a number of ways. In some circumstances, it can supplement the laptop’s battery if you connect it to a high-powered charger. Speaking of battery life, it’s fine…
