Call it Intel vs. Snapdragon: The battle for the soul of your laptop is being fought in thin, light models like HP's Envy x2. So we tested it with both CPUs to dig deep into the differences.
We get hands-on with Creative Labs' newest audiophile sound card: The Sound BlasterX AE-9.
The PCWorld gang talks about Creative's amazing Super X-Fi, old-school computing, and the reveal of the Sound Blaster AE-9.
Razer updates its Blade Stealth thin-and-light with a Whiskey Lake CPU and MX150 GPU, making it more like the MacBook Air, except likely faster.
If you see a PC with a weird RAM amount like 24GB (instead of the more common 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB), it's because Intel's Optane storage memory has been added to the mix.
The GPU in a gaming laptop matters, so here's everything you need to know about picking the right one for 720p, 1080p, or 1440p gaming, as well as esports.

It's AMD vs. Intel and AMD vs. Nvidia: We test identical Acer Predator Helios 500 laptops, one with Core i9 and GeForce GTX 1070, the other with Ryzen 7 and Radeon RX Vega 56.
Leaked Geekbench numbers indicate the 2018 MacBook Air gets thrashed by Dell's XPS 13 in heavy workloads
We compare the 2018 MacBook Air to the Dell XPS 13 9570 and HP Spectre x360 13 and can't find any reason to buy Apple's new ultraportable.
The redesigned Razer Blade 15 offers blistering gaming performance, stuffing a GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q and 8th gen Core i7 inside its tiny body.
Dell’s XPS 15 2-in-1 9575 is one of only two 8th-gen Kaby Lake G laptops ever made, and we're very sad about it. Whatever else you can say about its MagLev keyboard and USB-C exclusivity, it's impressively fast.
Intel lied when it said the 9th gen Core was the "best gaming CPU" because it's not--it's actually the fastest mainstream 8-core ever.
