Lenovo N20p Chromebook review: This $329 model stands out for its 300-degree hinge

Take an 11-inch Chromebook, add a touchscreen with a 300-degree hinge, and you suddenly have a model that's versatile and interesting. Too bad it can't be a tablet, though.

Lenovo N20p Chromebook: This $329 laptop has a touchscreen display that can flip 300 degrees

Most 11-inch Chromebooks are just basic browsing machines, but the N20p Chromebook stands out--literally--because its 300-degree hinge lets you flip the touchscreen display so it can be used as a stand for movies or presentations.

Asus Chromebook C200 review: Long battery life helps this $249 model stand out

Low-cost Chromebooks have fairly little to brag about. The Chromebook C200 is typical in many ways, but its stamina in our tests makes it one of the better choices in this price range.

Dell Inspiron 5547

Dell Inspiron 15 5000 Series review: This 15-inch notebook disappoints

A good display doesn't redeem Dell's consumer laptop from its myriad failings.

Lenovo Y50 gaming laptop

Lenovo Y50 gaming laptop review: Great performance spoiled by a sub-par display

A strong CPU and GPU don't make up for a crummy LCD.

Dell Inspiron 5000 series (Model 5447)

Dell Inspiron 14 5000 Series review: An attractive middle-of-the-road 14-inch laptop

This laptop is pretty enough on the outside that you'll wish it had more going for it on the inside.

Acer Aspire Switch 10

Acer Switch 10 review: Right idea, wrong execution

Acer's Switch 10 convertible truly has a split personality. Its button-free release mechanism is a great idea, but the rest of the device doesn't match up as well.

Razer Blade Pro

2014 Razer Blade Pro review: Only slightly better than last-year's model

While it is thinner and lighter than competing 17-inch gaming notebooks, the Blade Pro is also less powerful.

2014 Razer Blade Pro review

The Razer Blade Pro packs a massive 17-inch display in a surprisingly thin and light aluminum chassis. But its vaunted SwitchBlade UI leaves a bit to be desired.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 (2014 Edition) review: This laptop sounds as gorgeous as it looks

The audiophile features are no gimmick, but do they justify the price tag?

Samsung has built one of the thinnest, sexiest notebooks on the market.

Digital Storm Krypton review: A kick-ass gaming laptop at a great price

This relatively affordable 17-inch gaming portable will rock your virtual worlds.

HP Pavillion x360 review: A mediocre hybrid laptop in a pretty red case

HP's Yoga clone is fat as a laptop and just silly as a tablet.

Lenovo Yoga 2 11

Lenovo Yoga 2 11 review: A small laptop with tablet potential

This touchscreen notebook can play tablet dress-up, but Lenovo made a number of compromises to reach its budget price tag.

Alienware 17 gaming laptop (2014 edition)

Alienware's latest 17-inch laptop is gorgeous, well built, and supremely powerful.

Alienware 17 2014 Edition

Alienware 17 review: Beauty and beast in one gorgeous gaming notebook

Lots of aluminum and magnesium in this chassis, but it still weighs 9.5 pounds.

Origin EON 17-S

Origin's EON 17-S review: A bulky, but bad-ass gaming notebook

This 17-inch gamer is filled with top-shelf components, but is that enough these days?
