One of the best Chromebooks of all time, if not the very best, is the Lenovo Ideapad Duet. Don’t believe me? Well, check out what our Editor-in-Chief, Cam, had to say back when he reviewed it:
“The Duet is one of the most perfect devices I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. The compromises are very (very) minimal, and it outperformed every my expectations at every corner. As a gadget reviewer for the past decade, I’m not sure that has ever happened before. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever given a gadget a perfect 10/10 score.”
Yeah, that’s right, it got a perfect score. But what if, and hear me out, it could be better? Better than perfect. Today, Lenovo announced a successor to the Duet, and it just might fit the bill. We’ll, of course, have to go hands-on with it to be sure, but on paper, it looks amazing. Check it out in our top story, along with Lenovo’s new Android tablets and true wireless earbuds.

Traditional gas-powered lawn mowers are noisy, smelly, and not that great for the environment. Electric mowers are the complete opposite. They’re super quiet, don’t give off an irritating gas smell because there’s no gas present, and are great for the environment. Read More »

If you’re heading out for a day on the town, it pays to have a proper daybag with you. They’re less clunky than traditional bags, but still offer enough space to store snacks, water bottles, dirty clothes, battery packs, and more. This 40L day bag has an internal wet pocket for sweaty clothes after a hike or swim, separating them from the rest of your stuff. It’s made of tear- and water-resistant nylon and heavy-duty zippers, has mesh shoulder straps and a chest strap, features several compartments, and weighs just 0.7 pounds.
You can’t have a party without ear-splitting speakers and badass lighting. That’s not just my opinion; it’s also the inspiration behind LG’s XBOOM 360, a party speaker that combines omnidirectional Bluetooth sound with customizable lighting effects.
