Best Laptops: Q1 2017
Its once again time to take a look at the laptop market, and as with every quarterly update, there are always some changes to discuss. First, Intel released its quad-core mobile Kaby Lake chips at CES 2017, meaning most larger laptops have made the switch now to the latest and greatest 7th generation Core processors, and NVIDIA also released their GP107 mobile GPUs at CES, meaning we finally have a nice upgrade from the GTX 960M and GTX 965M class devices, with the GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti rounding out the middle of their lineup. Only the lowest end GPUs such as the GT 940M dont yet have a Pascal update.

Enermax Steelwing Review
With the Steelwing, Enermax has a new case in its portfolio that features an eye-catching design and it's made out aluminum and tempered glass. Although this case is very compact, the Steelwing is compatible with micro-ATX and mini-ITX motherboards. In addition there is enough space for high-end graphics cards and with some compromise you could even install a custom water cooling loop.

Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop Review
A comfortable way to work. For those of you who spend the majority of your working day glued to a PC, have you given enough consideration to workplace ergonomics?

A new chair is high on the list of priorities, but first, it's time to try a new keyboard and mouse. My current Logitech set has served me well for many years, but I'm curious to see if an ergonomic replacement could help alleviate any discomfort without disturbing my flow.

Tenda AC6 AC1200 Smart Dual-Band Wireless Router Review
The Tenda AC6 offers good range and throughput, and would make for a decent choice for people that didn't rely on wired connections for transferring files. Features like the high powered amplifiers, four large external antennas, and beam forming technology will help carry the signal throughout a typical house with plenty of bandwidth for a typical family. The 100Mbps wired ports are a downer since they would limit traffic on the LAN and WAN.
