Editor's Notes

January 03, 2019: This demographic seems to require a little less power than gamers and video editors, so they gain the advantage of working with lighter, more portable devices. Microsoft's new Surface Laptop seems to house the best specs in the smallest package with the most impressive track record, though there are some serious contenders from Razor Blade and HP, with Dell — a company some had written off as a manufacturer of nothing but cheap, throwaway computers — offering some competitive choices.
