Moto E 2020 review: Cheap and good (enough)

Moto E 2020 review: Cheap and good (enough)

The benchmark for a good, cheap Chromebook in 2020

There are a lot of “cheap” Chromebooks out there, especially with the sheer number of older models still circulating around. But there aren’t as many objectively good cheap Chromebooks. In fact, they’re few and far between, and it can be hard to pick them out among all the noise. But Lenovo’s C340 is a great...

The MediaTek curse all but ruins LG’s cheap Galaxy Note

I think it’s fair to say that Amazon’s lineup of Fire tablets don’t have the best reputation, particularly in the tech community.
