The Razer Blade Stealth has always been a pretty dang nice 13-inch laptop. Not the best laptop, and not the worst. A good alternative for people who want slick Mac-like design in a Windows computer. With its latest refresh of the Stealth, Razer is wisely moving away from its Apple influences and has started borrowing more from its friends in Windows-land. The result is one sharp looking laptop.

For five years, 8Bitdo has been creating near-perfect wireless clones of your favourite classic gamepads, improving the experience of emulating retro games on modern devices.
But if near-perfect isn’t perfect enough for your discerning gaming tastes, the company is now selling kits that should make it dead easy to upgrade your original Nintendo and Sega controllers with Bluetooth, without requiring any electronics know-how or soldering.
If your smartphone of choice has forced you to upgrade to wireless headphones, you probably hate having to swap them out for a corded pair when you want to play your Nintendo Switch with a little privacy.
The portable console doesn’t come with Bluetooth, but a tiny dongle called the Genki does, theoretically making it easy to upgrade your Switch so it plays nice with your wireless headphones.
Even though Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang told journalists at Computex that new GPU's wouldn't be available for "a long time", new rumours and leaks indicate that the upcoming Nvidia GTX 1180 could get announced much sooner, possibly as early as late August at Gamescom in Germany.
There were rumours of a PlayStation 5 and news on the next generation of Xbox, but this E3 was ultimately pretty light on the cool hardware. We knew that was the case given the sheer amount of VR accessories most of us can't or won't use any time soon.
Earlier this week, Nintendo delighted Fortnite fans by announcing that the game, which might just be the most popular game being played right now, was coming to the Switch immediately. Even better, Switch players would be able to compete with PC and Xbox players, too - instant digital distribution and multiplayer open to all!
Nintendo's announcement felt like a dream come true after years of console makers refusing to play nice. But it isn't a dream, because Sony continues to flip the bird to its competitors and Fortnite players on the PS4 are being left out in the cold, unable to play with Xbox or Switch gamers.
The visual style of the Borg in Star Trek -- with its protruding cables, dark metals, and monolithic sameness -- is unmistakable, and has become, since the collective's introduction in Star Trek: The Next Generation, iconic science fiction. They're cool villains, and now you can merge your own technological uniqueness with theirs.
The recently-released Super Nintendo Classic Edition is a fantastic way to replay 21 of your favourite 16-bit SNES games -- but what about all the other classics that Nintendo excluded? If you've still got a stack of old Super Nintendo carts at home, the Analogue Super Nt should let you enjoy them on the fancy hi-def TV you upgraded to years ago.
Is it a phone? Or maybe a tablet with removable gamepads kind of like a Nintendo Switch? No one really knows, but Razer has been rumoured to be working on a mobile gaming gaming device for quite some time now, and according to a new interview between CNBC and Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, it seems like that might actually happen.
With the launch of the Xbox One X only a few months away, Microsoft needs an interim win to keep people interested in the console that is currently in a very distant second place to Sony. Which is why it is no surprise that Xbox Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg told GameReactor it was "talking to Sony" about the potential for crossplay between the two consoles.
Every nerd loves a good tech war: Windows vs Mac, Apple vs Android, Intel vs AMD. They give us something to armchair argue about over beers with friends -- or to rant over in the comments of illustrious tech blogs. After spending the weekend playing with AMD's new Vega 64 and Vega 56 graphics cards, I think I can safely say an old tech war is back on -- even if AMD's latest salvo feels paltry. Nvidia might be leading the discrete graphics card industry, but AMD's two newest cards are cheap and fast enough to finally compete. And that can only mean good things for PC users.
