This has gone on long enough, and I won’t shut up anymore. I hereby request that companies stop installing Pentium processors in midrange computers immediately.
Look, I understand the argument. Not everyone needs a Threadripper. Not everyone needs a Core i7. Some people just want a device to watch YouTube every night. Some people just want a Twitter machine. They can save a lot of money, and potentially afford a better build, better display, and fancier features, if they go for a cheaper chip.
That’s great if you’re in that group. But no one, and I really mean no one – you should spend more than a couple hundred bucks on a one thing device at a time. Because a $360 Chromebook Duet can surf the web without a hitch. The benefit a Windows laptop has over these devices, aside from the larger screen, is that the Windows operating system can be better suited to multitasking and working.. It supports more powerful programs, can better manage application windows and files, and has more computing power to run a bunch of tasks at once. So if you’re paying more than, say, $800 for a device that will only have one window open at a time, you’re doing something wrong.
For this very reason, the $899 Asus Vivobook 13 Slate OLED Steven Harrington Edition (yes, that’s the full name) It’s one of the coolest but also most confusing computers I’ve reviewed this year. Asus did it in collaboration with the Los Angeles-based artist. steven harington (not to be confused with Steve Harrington’s character in Strange things)and it looks incredibly cool with a brilliant OLED screen.
It also includes a Pentium processor. That Pentium processor works. But it mostly works if you have one thing open at a time.

The Vivobook 13 Slate Steven Harrington Edition is a 13.3-inch OLED tablet (an already atypical combination). It’s one of two limited-edition Slate OLED models released in collaboration with popular artists this year. (Philip Colbert of London also has one.) The models are supposed to “represent the artist’s unique vision of the world,” according to Asus promotional material.
I would say that Steven Harrington’s edit was successful. It looks, in a word, amazing. The cover stand (magnetic, detachable, and can support the device in both portrait and landscape modes, though you may see the screen wobble if you use the stylus at certain angles) is covered in cartoons of dogs, trees, planets and such, including some recurring characters from Harrington’s. The bottom of the keyboard (also detachable, Surface Pro-style, and surprisingly comfortable) has an extra dash of cute graphics.
This laptop has personality. I wish more gadgets would. I would love to open this up in a coffee shop and look a little cooler than all the other coffee shop dwellers around me. In a tech market filled with boring blacks and grays, a touch of unique flavor is always welcome to help people incorporate their tablet into their style.
