Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 Review! An Intel CPU and AMD GPU in one chip? Yup! One of the Kaby Lake G processors we covered at CES is inside Dell's new XPS 15 2-in-1. How fast is this new laptop/tablet? How good are the Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics for gaming? Battery life? The feel of that new Maglev keyboard??? Watch the video to find out!

Get Rid of TV Glare Bryan emails, "I have a plasma tv that I love but we moved and now its reflecting the windows behind where sit. I was curious if you guys (including Mr Heron) know of a way to fix this. Is there something to make it less reflective?" In the video we talk dulling spray, anti-glare films (we mentioned NuShield and GlareStopper), and the one thing you can do that will absolutely stop those irritating reflections on your monitor today!
Best Hard Drives for a NAS??? Josh tweets, "What are your opinions on the best NAS/RAID drives for backing up ripped blurays? Looking to rip a total of about 250 discs and need quite a bit of space, but want it to continue being reliable down the road." WD Reds, cost per GB, and if there's a 'sweet spot' that's a bargain between the 1TB and 10TB drives in the video!
Do Something Analog ...like Thomas, who emailed firstname.lastname@example.org, "Last month Shannon tweeted that she missed out on the cherry blossoms in Japan this Spring. I know it’s a little late, but here are a few photos of the Great Buddha in Kamakura, known as the Daibutsu. It’s no replacement for a real trip to Japan, but I hope it can bide Shannon over for a little while longer, and maybe convince Patrick to visit." Check out some excellent pictures from Japan in the video!
