Samsung's 2019 TVs can remotely access your PC

Samsung's 2019 TVs can remotely access your PC Samsung's smart TV models for 2019 and beyond will come with the power to control and display compatible apps installed on your PC, laptop or smartphone. They'll come loaded with a new feature called "Remote Access," which will allow them to, well, remotely access your other devices through a wireless connection. For desktops, it's through an IP network, while for laptops and mobile, it's through your WiFi. You'll simply have to connect a mouse and a keyboard to the smart TV to be able to access a PC in your bedroom while you're in the living room, for instance.

Samsung takes another stab at gaming laptops with the Odyssey

Almost every PC maker has tried their hands at gaming laptops, but what's surprising about Samsung is that it's never quite gotten it right. That might change with its latest Notebook Odyssey, its first machine to support NVIDIA's RTX 2080 graphics. At the very least, it certainly looks more distinctive than Samsung's past gaming notebooks, with a sleek metallic case and central monitor hinge, which leaves some open air for cooling.

Just like the other notebooks with NVIDIA's RTX 20-series GPUs, the Odyssey features a 15.6-inch 1080p screen running at 144Hz with GSYNC support. Unfortunately, that's the only resolution it'll support for now, but it's ideal for gamers who care about smooth performance at high frame rates. And just like the RTX desktop GPUs, the mobile RTX 2080 will support real-time ray tracing. That has the potential to make lighting more realistic in supported games.

ASUS rethinks gaming laptop design with its inventive new ROG Mothership ASUS' bonkers new ROG Mothership gaming laptop features a radical approach to cramming plenty of powerful hardware into a portable system. This 17-inch machine is kind of like a cross between an all-in-one desktop and a full-blown gaming laptop: place it vertically on a flat surface, and a kickstand behind the screen pops out to prop up the display. The company says this helps with heat dissipation, and negates the need for a liquid cooling system for its powerful internals.

As for other hardware, it'll feature Intel's 8th generation Core i7 hexacore CPU, up to 16GB of RAM, and support for two NVMe SSDs and one portable hard drive. At 5.2 pounds, it's not as light as the competition from Alienware, Razer, and ASUS, but at least it's better than before. It'll also feature a bevy of ports, including three traditional USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB-C, Ethernet and HDMI.

At this point, there isn't much to distinguish the Odyssey from the plethora of other gaming laptops on the market, but it's at least a sign that Samsung is getting better at building powerful notebooks. We don't have any pricing details for the Odyssey yet, but it's expected to be available early this year.

Razer's gaming laptops - what are the best to buy in 2019? And are they worth the price?.
Ironically, seeing as they're made by a company best recognized for its three-headed green snake logo, Razer gaming laptops radiate elegance. Though I'm sure no one at its San Francisco headquarters wants to hear this from us, Razer is practically the Apple of gaming. Think about it: it puts out notebooks that are thin, light, and stylish while prioritizing high build quality over low pricing. As far as Windows laptops are concerned, we'd say the Razer Blade family offers the best touchpads in the biz, but they're more than just MacBooks you can play games on.
