- Asus has a cheap new notebook that doesn't look cheap. (AnandTech)
But is. Probably. Pricing not specified, but the lower models in the range have crappy low-resolution TN displays and should be avoided even if they are cheap. (I still have a notebook with a TN display, but it cost me about $150. If they're that cheap it can be forgiven.)
- NEC has a 27" 4K monitor with USB-C and 1mm bezels (AnandTech)
These would be great companions to my HP notebooks; if I got two each one could plug into one monitor by USB-C for charging and the other by DisplayPort adaptor.
Price is $699, which isn't super cheap but not terrible, and it includes a USB hub.
If you have a 2017 HP Spectre x2, you could do a lot worse than one of these as its desktop complement.
- Gravitons have finally been detected. (The Register)
These are Amazon's Arm-based Graviton CPUs though, so probably no Nobel Prize in the offing.
They're based on the Arm A72 core, which is the same one in my tablet, and three generations behind the current model. Performance is best described as meh - but fast enough for lighter workloads. (Serve the Home)
- If you're planning on visiting rural Japan in the near future don't forget to pick up your free house.
Well, only a few of them are free, and they look like they need a tiny bit of work. But still, I could pick up a dozen of the more expensive homes listed on this site for the market value of the place I currently rent. [Sydney property prices. Ugh.] If I were a Japanese resident. Which I am technically not.
- The Compleat O'Rly.
