Endless OS was designed for emerging markets, but it's intuitive and powerful enough for use back home. The Mission One Computer is one of the first in a series of initiatives to bring it stateside. The small retangular computer has a tasteful design wrapped in sustainably-harvested bamboo. Inside, it's powered by a dual-core Intel Celeron processor, and has modest, yet respectable, specs, including HDMI output and modern wireless connectivity. Most importantly, though, it runs Endless OS, which means it's as easy to use as a smartphone, and includes over 100 apps and tools that work great even without an Internet connection.
It's still a concept. Yet the Razer Project Valerie Triple Display Laptop seems to be a viable one. Building on the company's Blade Pro chassis, it packs three 17.3-inch, 4K screens into a form factor that's about the same as your average 17-inch gaming laptop. The screens automatically deploy and lock into place on their aluminum hinges, while an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 graphics processor and Surround View support ensure it's ready to provide an immersive experience unlike anything you've seen in a portable.
The prior Envy Curved was a good desktop. It was just a little... ugly. The new HP Envy Curved AIO 34 Desktop has no such problem. Like the Envy AIO 27, it hides its key components in a sleek tabletop box, letting the Technicolor-certified Ultra WQHD micro-edge display float above your desk. The same box also serves as a quad-speaker sound bar, tuned by Bang & Olufsen for immersive sound, and for the paranoid out there, the Windows Hello-compatible camera and mic pop up only when in use, and stay hidden otherwise.
The XPS 13 is one of the most popular Windows laptops around. The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 Laptop isn't a full-on replacement — but it does gain some new tricks. As the name suggests, the InfinityEdge display now sits on a hinge that lets it work in four different modes. It's powered by Intel's latest Core M processors, and has two USB Type C ports, a machined aluminum shell, carbon fiber palm rest, support for the Dell Active Pen, and your choice of a Full HD or Quad HD+ display. In other words, what it loses in performance, it more than makes up for in versatility.
