Plus, Android laptops, reader questions, and more!
This week, on episode 225 of the No BS podcast, the Maximum PC gang gathered to flap their lips to wonder if it’s time to ask if Steam Machines are losing steam and spill detail’s on Intel’s Pentium “K” and Devil’s Canyon parts. The crew also talks abou the possibility of cheap 4K monitors and ponders if any of them would actually want to run a 4K monitor at home over a standard 1080P panel. There’s also a lively discussion about why HP would put Android on a its new laptop and if Chromebooks are “worthless.” That plus staff picks, questions from readers, and a full helping of bile and sarcasm from one of Gordon’s signature rants.
Slatebook 14 not the company’s first Android laptop
If you thought last year’s Android-powered Slatebook X2 laptop was going to end up being a somewhat goofy experiment that HP would be too embarrassed to even acknowledge a year later, you were wrong. Believe it or not, the company, which was once the leading PC vendor in the world, has actually announced an even bigger Android-powered laptop.
