  • The HP Pavilion 14 Plus looks like a solid laptop. (Thurott.com)

    Starting around $700 with the top configuration at $1300, it's not a bargain item but it's not overpriced. It's available with 10, 12, and 14 core CPUs (Intel Alder Lake, so they all have 8 low-power cores), and RTX 2050 graphics in one model.

    Display is choice between a 2240x1400 LCD and a 2800x1800 OLED, either one a solid choice, and it has a reasonable selection of ports thought they're somehow all on the wrong side. I guess if you're left-handed, your time has finally come. The Four Essential Keys are all present and correct as well.

    Only real flaw is that it's limited to 16GB of RAM (soldered to the motherboard), and that's only a flaw if you're a software developer running a complex IDE or something like that.

  • Intel has new NUC laptop kits on the way. (Liliputing)

    The previous generation came with a choice of RTX 3060 or 3070 graphics and were generally quite sold mid-range laptops. You have to provide your own RAM, SSD, and operating system, but on the other hand that means they are designed to let you open them up and install your own RAM, SSD, and operating system, which is huge. In the HP laptop above for example, the RAM is soldered in place and if my experience with recent HP models is any guide, the SSD is a real bitch to replace.

    Four Essential Keys too.

    The problem - potentially - is that these new models come with Intel's new Arc graphics chips, which are, shall we say, unproven.
