Lenovo gives away 3 months of Stadia Pro with gaming PCs, because Lenovo doesn't know what Stadia is

Lenovo gives away 3 months of Stadia Pro with gaming PCs, because Lenovo doesn't know what Stadia is

Lenovo doesn't seem to get the point of Stadia. It's offering three months of access to the service's $10 Pro tier if you buy a new Legion or IdeaPad Gaming-branded laptop or desktop PC. Which is nice. But the entire point of Stadia is that you don't need local gaming hardware to play it. So what's the point of tying a promotional freebie to gaming machines? Wouldn't it make more sense to offer free Stadia Pro on a low-cost machine that can't play high-end PC games?

Nvidia GeForce Now beta launches on Chromebooks today

Nvidia GeForce Now beta launches on Chromebooks today

GeForce Now, Nvidia's PC-based cloud gaming platform, is available in beta on Chromebooks beginning today. The service was already playable on PC, Mac, and Android — but Chrome OS, an environment known for both low-power hardware and a lack of high-end games, had previously been a particularly glaring omission. Now, practically any old Chrome laptop can fire up some of the most demanding games out there (provided it's got a strong internet connection).

Motorola Edge review: Lasts so long on a charge you'll get tired of holding it

Motorola Edge review: Lasts so long on a charge you'll get tired of holding it

Motorola took a few years off from making flagship phones, but 2020 was supposed to be its big chance to get back into the high-end. Well, it's a lot harder to sell a $1,000 phone in the midst of a global pandemic, but maybe a somewhat cheaper phone has a shot? The new Motorola Edge is the pared-down version of the Edge+ that launched a few months ago. Unlike that phone, this one is unlocked and has a Snapdragon 765 for 5G connectivity rather than the 865.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet review: The first Chrome OS tablet that (mostly) makes sense

Lenovo Chromebook Duet review: The first Chrome OS tablet that (mostly) makes sense

Lenovo's Chromebook Duet sounded like a winner the moment we first heard about it. It's a 2-in-1 detachable tablet running Chrome OS, and though it might not pack the fastest chipset, the rest of its hardware impresses — especially given that it starts at just $280 and comes with a keyboard cover. While the Surface-style form factor has its issues when it comes to usability, this the first Chrome OS-powered tablet that's actually made sense.
