Apple iMac 27-inch - 2017

Externally, the 2017 version of the 27-inch iMac doesn't look all that different. Internally almost all the main components have been updated: Faster solid-state drives, up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, more powerful GPUs, faster Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and, of course, Intel's seventh-generation Kaby Lake processors. Even the keyboard has been updated for professional users, with the addition of a numeric keypad and larger set of navigation keys.
There's been a big graphics upgrade, too, in oeder to get a foot in the door with the VR fans. So, as well as increasing the brightness of the iMac's 5K Retina Display to 500 nits (matching that of the MacBook Pro), Apple has also opted for a more powerful Radeon Pro 570 GPU with 4GB of VRAM.

Asus Chromebook Flip C302CA

The Chromebook Flip C302 is truly nicely built. The solid metal chassis gives it a tough outer shell, although there's still a fair bit of flex in the lid. Still, the lid's brushed finish looks classy, and there's nothing about its visual appearance that makes this Chromebook seem a lesser class of laptop. Asus has gone for a full 360-degree rotating hinge (as the name Chromebook Flip would suggest), and this, along with the touch screen, makes the machine very versatile. One can surely like the fact that when the Chromebook Flip C302 is in tablet mode, magnets lock the lid section down into place so it can't slip about.
In tablet mode the keys depress when they're hit rather than locking out. They are recessed so they're not vulnerable when the device is laid flat on a desk, but they are at risk when it's held in the hands. 
The Chromebook Flip C302's 12.5-inch screen is quite reflective, but its full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution is good enough to wo…

Toshiba Portege X20W-D Review

The removable screen of the Z20t has been replaced with a 360-degree rotating configuration, and Toshiba says this laptop is the thinnest and lightest business 2-in-1 hybrid to use full-power 7th-generation Intel Core processors.
Right from the start it's clear that Toshiba has set out to impress with the Portégé X20W-D, which weighs just 1.1kg and has overall dimensions of 299mm by 219mm by 15.4mm. To make just one comparison, Dell's flagship 360-degree notebook, the new XPS 13, comes in at 1.2kg. At 304mm by 199mm by 13.7mm, Dell's system is thinner and shorter, but wider, and its screen measures 13.3 inches whereas Toshiba has gone for 12.5 inches.
Rather than get bogged down in detailed comparisons, the main point is that Toshiba has come up with an ultrabook that's small, light and extremely portable. It has the same footprint as an A4 pad and will sit neatly in a bag or backpack.
The brushed-effect finish on the lid, replicated inside the shell, is elegant and r…
