  • Asus ZenBook UX305 vs. Dell XPS 13: Thin, light and powerful

    If Apple's new 12-in. Retina MacBook is any indication, the laptop is no longer considered an endangered species -- as long as it's slim and lightweight. However, while the new MacBook is extraordinarily portable and comes with an impressive display, it's garnered a bit of criticism because of its single USB port (which does double duty as a power port) and lack of SD card slots. On the other hand, two new Windows 8.1 systems have recently shipped that not only push the thin-and-light envelope, but offer enough features to make them suitable for both personal and business use.

  • CentOS 7: The perfect gift for the Linux do-it-yourselfer

    Although differentiation is tough in <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/article/2451781/linux/is-linux-dead-for-the-desktop.html">Linux</a> distributions today, CentOS 7 has carved out a niche as the free and open alter ego to <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/article/2466011/opensource-subnet/review-rhel-7-anchors-enterprise-focused-ecosystem.html">Red Hat Enterprise Linux</a> (RHEL). We found that CentOS, which is mandated to be binary-compatible with Red Hat 7, shares about 95% of the features of its commercial enterprise-class sibling.

  • Hawkeye G battles malware so you don't have to

    The number and complexity of cyber threats leveled against enterprises of all sizes these days is staggering. There's everything from advanced persistent threats created by well-sponsored nation states to disgruntled <a href="http://www.networkworld.com/article/2692093/security0/data-protection-165097-disgruntled-employees-lash-out.html">insiders</a> looking to make a fast buck or enact revenge for some perceived wrongdoing.

  • The best new features in Windows Server 10 (so far)

    Alongside Microsoft's Oct. 1 release of the <a href="http://www.infoworld.com/article/2688078/microsoft-windows/microsoft-windows-165000-first-look-windows-10.html">Windows 10 Technical Preview</a>, the company offered early previews of the next iteration of Windows Server and System Center. With final releases not expected until the summer of 2015, these extremely early technical previews are a marked departure from the norm for Microsoft. Far from being feature complete or even stable, the Windows Server Technical Preview nevertheless presents a way to become familiar with new features coming down the pike, and to put the UI changes through their paces.

  • 4 Windows tablet/keyboard combos take on the Surface Pro

    Microsoft's <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9248650/Surface_Pro_3_deep_dive_review_Has_Microsoft_finally_got_it_right_">Surface Pro 3</a> has gotten a lot of attention as a way to bridge the gap between tablets and traditional notebooks. Its snap-on keyboard and pull-out rear stand tries to offer the best of both worlds, but with a 12-in. screen and weighing 1.8 lbs. (without its keyboard cover), the Surface Pro is not as light as it could be, particularly for nomadic workers. And starting at $800 for a system equipped with an Intel i3 with 64GB plus $130 for the Type Cover, it is not an inexpensive system.
