Announced by Microsoft in July and greeted by stunned disbelief, these HP Stream laptops deliver on the promise that a Windows device can be affordable without being cheap. They aren't just good enough. They're great.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-1113-best-tech-deal-2014" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-1113-best-tech-deal-2014#comments Windows 8 Windows 8.1 Windows 8.1 Update 1 Windows 8.1 Update 2 Hardware Mobile Sun, 21 Dec 2014 15:50:00 +0000 47731 at http://winsupersite.com Windows App Studio Adds Support for TouchDevelop http://winsupersite.com/software-development/windows-app-studio-adds-support-touchdevelop <div class="field-deck"> Now it's only for universal apps too </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Microsoft has updated its web-based Windows App Studio developer tool with support for TouchDevelop, a powerful, touch-friendly programming language that includes a physics engine.

Well, the Nextbook 10.1 has arrived for review, and like some other low-cost Windows devices that are shipping this holiday season, it appears to be a surprisingly high-quality machine that more than justifies its $179.99 price tag.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/e-fun-nextbook-101-first-impressions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/e-fun-nextbook-101-first-impressions#comments Windows 8 Windows 8.1 with Bing Hardware Mobile Thu, 11 Dec 2014 17:01:00 +0000 47321 at http://winsupersite.com Power to the People: Low-End Tablets and PCs Reinvented the Personal Computing Market in 2014 http://winsupersite.com/mobile/power-people-low-end-tablets-and-pcs-reinvented-personal-computing-market-2014 <div class="field-deck"> Thanks to competition, Windows devices are better than ever </div> <div class="node-body article-body">When Microsoft announced its "zero dollar" Windows licensing for phones and small PCs and tablets, I worried that we were about to enter an era in which the quality of this hardware would match that of the crapware that hardware makers always bundled on such devices. And while there are no doubt such travesties in the marketplace, I'm happy to report that my initial fears about Microsoft's strategy were unfounded. Instead, there are wonderful Windows devices to be had at every conceivable price point. And there's never been a better time to buy.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/power-people-low-end-tablets-and-pcs-reinvented-personal-computing-market-2014" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/power-people-low-end-tablets-and-pcs-reinvented-personal-computing-market-2014#comments Windows Phone Windows 8 Hardware Mobile Sun, 07 Dec 2014 15:52:00 +0000 47131 at http://winsupersite.com HP Stream 13 First Impressions http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-13-first-impressions <div class="field-deck"> Bigger and better, depending on your needs </div> <div class="node-body article-body">The HP Stream 13 holds no surprises, and that's a good thing: As you might expect, it's basically just a larger version of the excellent HP Stream 11, one that is probably a better fit for most adults. And since it costs just $30 more than its smaller sibling the HP Stream 13 is also an excellent value as well.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-13-first-impressions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/hp-stream-13-first-impressions#comments Windows 8 Windows 8.1 with Bing Hardware Mobile Sat, 29 Nov 2014 16:09:00 +0000 46881 at http://winsupersite.com Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro: Two Weeks In http://winsupersite.com/mobile/lenovo-yoga-3-pro-two-weeks <div class="field-deck"> Second impressions </div> <div class="node-body article-body">I'm about two weeks into my testing of Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro, a stunning new Ultrabook that combines innovative styling with the latest Intel mobile chipset.

Awesome </div> <div class="node-body article-body">No PC maker has embraced the crazy potential of Windows 8.x more enthusiastically than Lenovo, and maybe it's not coincidental that this firm has become the world's largest PC maker during the same time period. Some of Lenovo's most interesting designs are, perhaps not surprisingly, the ones that push at the boundaries of what we expect from PCs. And so it goes with the Horizon 2s, a slim "tabletop" PC that offers a unique multi-person UI and around-the-home portability that may be ideal for families.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://winsupersite.com/mobile/lenovo-horizon-2s-first-impressions" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://winsupersite.com/mobile/lenovo-horizon-2s-first-impressions#comments Lenovo Windows 8 Hardware Mobile Fri, 07 Nov 2014 16:56:00 +0000 46031 at http://winsupersite.com
