Initial Hands-On With The Passively-Cooled Airtop PC Boasting A Core i7 & GTX 950

Since the Airtop PC was announced back in January there has been a lot of interest in this passively-cooled, high-performance line of PCs by the folks at CompuLab. The Airtop isn’t some low-end, passively cooled PC but rather can be equipped with a Core i7 or Xeon CPU and a discrete graphics card to deliver very capable performance while having a completely silent PC. Some have been skeptical about the cooling and performance claims of the Airtop PC, but our review sample arrived this morning and have begun testing out this very interesting PC.

Elementary boss watches the Linux distro make great strides

By Bryan Lunduke

I’m a big openSUSE user. No ifs, ands or buts about it. I love it so much that I even sit on the openSUSE board.

Android Candy: Quick Games

By Shawn Powers

The biggest problem I have with gaming is that it takes far too long to
get “into” games. I’m generally very busy, and my gaming time usually
lasts as long as it takes for the dentist to call me in from the waiting
room (or possibly how long it takes me to use the bathroom, but
let’s not go there). more>>
