The Spectre x360 is HP's newest flagship notebook. It's also probably the closest you'll get to seeing Microsoft build its own laptop.

In a previous life, the HP Envy 14 was a laptop's laptop: a 5.69-pound slugger with an optical drive, discrete AMD graphics and a battery that couldn't last four hours in our battery rundown test. That notebook -- one of our favorites in the 2010-2011 year -- met its fate last fall when HP redesign...

What's this here? It's the stuff of CES 2012 legend -- the HP Spectre. Now, granted, we had a pretty good idea that the sexy new ultrabook is headed our way soon, but hey, here it is, in the flesh, spotted by a blurrycammed tipster roaming around the Intel booth on the CES showroom floor. It's ...

Destination Games have been talking quite a bit recently about what's to come in Tabula Rasa, but the main focus is on ... giant robots!

We love gazing at Halo in LEGO form, and we're always looking for more. Enter legohaulic who, as the name suggests, loves building with LEGOs. We've seen the Warthog before, but our hats go off to this latest batch of warthog and Spectre vehicles -- complete with a stand to keep it hovering. So w...
