At A Glance

The HP Envy 700-030qe is an above-average computer that’s reasonably priced.

The Transformer All-in-One is a world apart from the other portable all-in-ones we’ve seen, but it’s not as sexy as Dell’s XPS 18 Touch.

The Predator just isn't as ferocious as Acer would like us to think it is.
