Is it perfect? Just about. Fri, 14 Oct 2022 07:31:00 -0500 en-US text/html Killexams : HP Envy 16 Review Mon, 10 Oct 2022 02:32:00 -0500 en text/html Killexams : Best HP Laptops for 2022

HP laptops offer something for you, whether you're a creative looking to edit photos, a gamer in search of a powerful laptop or a student in need of a small, lightweight laptop.

Many of the best HP laptops have features designed for remote or hybrid work such as improved webcams and microphones, better audio quality, longer battery life, faster charging and the fastest Wi-Fi 6 wireless.

Like other PC makers such as Dell, Lenovo, Acer and Asus, HP is in the midst of updating the processors in its laptops and two-in-ones. That means Intel-based models are moving from 11th-gen to 12th-gen CPUs, while AMD Ryzen systems are switching from 5000-series chips to 6000-series. It also means it's generally a good time to look for deals on older models of the best HP laptops. However, we've also seen big performance improvements with the new processors. An updated model might cost a little more but will add to the overall longevity. 


Spectre is HP's top consumer laptop line so you're getting the best of the best with this 16-inch two-in-one. 

  • Beautiful design
  • Lots of features for home and office work
  • Great webcam
  • Active pen and laptop sleeve included

Of course, a premium two-in-one like the Spectre x360 comes at a relatively high price; it starts at around $1,200. The top-end configuration we reviewed was good but not great considering its $2,030 price. This is definitely one we recommend getting with the 12th-gen Intel processors and Intel Arc graphics if you're going to go all-in. Read our HP Spectre x360 16 review.

HP's Victus 16 is a surprisingly robust and powerful gaming laptop that keeps up with the latest games at a more affordable price. Compared to HP's high-end Omen gaming laptop line, the Victus is more of an all-purpose laptop but still configured for gaming with a price starting at less than $1,000. HP offers several configurations with graphics chip options ranging from Nvidia's entry-level GeForce GTX 1650 up to a midrange RTX 3060 or AMD Radeon RX 6500M. We like almost everything about it except for its flimsy display hinge and underwhelming speakers. Read our HP Victus 16 review.

There are plenty of convertible Chromebooks, where the screen flips around to the back of the keyboard so you can use it as a tablet. But Chrome tablets with removable keyboards like the HP Chromebook x2 11 are still a rarity. It offers long battery life and performance that rises (slightly) above the competition. The main downside is that it's expensive; the model we reviewed is $599. However, that price did include both the keyboard cover and USI pen and it's regularly on sale for $200. If you're interested make sure to wait for one of those deals. Read our HP Chromebook x2 11 review.

Josh Goldman/CNET

If you're making a laptop aimed at creatives, it's not enough to just put discrete graphics and a strong processor in a slim body. The extra performance really should be paired with a good screen, and that's what you get with the HP Envy 14. The laptop's 16:10 14-inch 1,920x1,200-pixel display not only gives you more vertical room to work, but is color-calibrated at the factory and covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. The result: a well-rounded option for creatives looking for on-the-go performance at a reasonable price. This model is due for a refresh, though, so keep an eye out for updated models. Read our HP Envy 14 review.

Killexams : European Leaders Hold Summit to Test Out a Larger Political Community

PRAGUE—Months after French President Emmanuel Macron’s long-floated pan-European political project was being dismissed as either a gabfest or a divisive distraction by some regional officials, 44 leaders gathered in the Czech capital on Thursday for security, energy and other discussions.

Propelled by the grave challenge of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and its continent-wide economic costs, the European Union’s 27 leaders met with their counterparts in 17 European countries outside the bloc—the new European Political Community—billing it primarily as a show of

support for Ukraine.

Killexams : HP's Latest Enterprise VR Workstation Is a Backpack

As VR (virtual reality) looks to transform itself into an increasingly more mobile (aka convenient) experience HP has debuted a novel solution to the wires and tethers associated with VR today – a backpack.

At SIGGRAPH 2017, HP announced the HP Z VR Backpack, a 10-lb, wearable PC with enough horsepower for both experiencing and creating VR content. While it is easy to imagine the entertainment potential of the Z VR, HP has made it clear that it wants its new wearable PC to be catalyst for bringing more robust VR experiences to business and enterprise first and foremost. Safer simulation and training, virtual walkthroughs for architectural design, and better collaboration in virtual environments for product designers, are just a few of the use cases cited by HP.

At its core the Z VR Backpack is a Windows 10 PC with an Intel Core i7 processor, 32 GB of SDRAM, a Nvidia Quadro P5200 GPU, and up to 1 TB of internal storage. It measures in at 13.11 x 9.29 x 2.39 inches and weighs 10.25 lbs according to specs released by HP. The backpack is powered by a 55Whr lithium-ion battery and features two, external portable 74 Whr hot-swappable batteries. The Z VR can also be docked and serve as a desktop PC.

If you've had a chance to try VR for product design you know that the cords and wires can make for a very cumbersome (and potentially unsafe) work experience, particularly with multiple users operating in the same physical space. Without some sort of handy rig overhead to manage the wires and someone to spot you and hold the cords connecting your headset and controllers to the workstation, it only takes a few turns before you end up wrapped in cable clutter.

Placing VR into a backpack form factor goes a long way in addressing the cable clutter issues, but in hands-on demonstrations at SIGGRAPH it feels like comfort is still a big issue. At 10 lbs the backpack itself is not terribly heavy, but it is just heavy enough to be noticeable and one wonders how it will play out with extended use – particularly if adapted to more physically demanding tasks like entertainment (live-action shooting games) or design sessions that require prolonged standing.

The other issue, which to be fair is completely outside of HP's control, is the weight of the headset. The latest version of the HTC Vive weighs in at just over a pound. That may not sound significant but it becomes very noticeable when it's attached to your moving head (also consider a pair of reading glasses only weighs about 30-40 grams). Anyone that has ever worked out will tell you that adding a total of about 11 lbs to your bodyweight can have a significant impact.

But headsets are only promising to get lighter. Kopin, a manufacturer of lightweight displays, recently unveiled a reference design, codenamed Elf VR, that will used patented microdisplay panels to create a VR headset the company estimates will be about 50% lighter than headsets currently available.

The move to untethered VR with internal tracking must also be considered. Oculus and HTC have promised the next generation of their headsets will be wireless and companies including Microsoft and Qualcomm are working with partners to deliver untethered headsets as well. A lightweight, wireless headset that delivers the same fidelity as a tethered headset could make the placement of a workstation entirely irrelevant.

Depending on how long it takes for wireless VR products to roll out wide, HP's backpack could catch on with customers too impatient for untethered solutions. We'll have to wait and see whether the backpack PC becomes a standard or a footnote, but for now it may offer a good intermediary step toward fully free VR.

What do you think of HP's VR Backpack solution? Let us know in the comments.

Luxuries abound on the Lenovo Slim 9i, a premium, 14-inch ultraportable. Let’s start with the gorgeous 4K OLED display protected by the smooth and glossy lid made from an iPhone-like 3D glass. The all-aluminum chassis is thin yet rigid and features rounded edges that make carrying and using the laptop eminently comfortable. The wide hinge allows for one-finger opening of the laptop, smooth screen adjustments, and wobble-free positioning. The webcam goes to 1080p and has IR capabilities for easy, secure logins. Even the audio output, typically disappointing in a laptop, is impressively powerful and dynamic.

The hits keep coming when you peer inside the Slim 9i. It features a speedy 12th-gen processor and an ample amount of RAM for steady and strong performance. Its price puts the Slim 9i squarely in the premium ultraportable category, but if you have the money to throw at a high-end ultraportable for work or home use, the Slim 9i has the muscle for multitasking Windows use and the looks to turn heads and start conversations. Even its average battery life and limited port selection cannot prevent the Slim 9i from winning at Editors’ Choice as one of our favorite ultraportables we’ve seen this year.

Lenovo Slim 9i specifications and features

As configured, our Lenovo Slim 9i test system is selling for $2,140 direct from Lenovo and features the following specs:

・CPU: Intel Core i7-1280P

・Memory: 32GB

・Graphics: Intel Iris Xe

・Storage: 1TB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD

・Display: 14-inch, 3840 x 2400, OLED

・Webcam: 1080p IR camera with shutter switch

・Connectivity: 3 x USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support, combo audio jack.

・Networking: Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.1

・Biometrics: IR facial recognition

・Battery capacity: 75 Watt-hours

・Dimensions: 12.5 x 9.1 x 0.6 inches

・Measured weight: 3.0 pounds (laptop), 0.56 pounds (AC adapter)

・Price: $2,140

The Slim 9i is a premium laptop that starts at a lofty $2,070. For that sum, it provides an Intel Core i7-1280P CPU, an ample 32GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD and a 14-inch OLED touch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio and 3840×2400 resolution. The only hardware upgrade available is doubling the storage to a 1TB SSD. Our test system features the SSD upgrade, which adds $70 to the price for a total of $2,140. Lenovo regularly rotates discounts on its site, and the Slim 9i can be found selling for as low as $1,760 for the baseline config and $1,819 for our 1TB test model.


If the Slim 9i had a camera lens or two mounted in the corner of its 3D glass lid, you might mistake it for a giant iPhone. The glass covering lends a look and feel of luxury right off the bat. Pearl white in color with a smooth, glossy finish, the Slim 9’s lid and clean lines make it look like a device from Apple’s design team. In another unstated, Apple-like move, a small, silver Lenovo badge tucked along the edge of the lid is the only ornament to be found on the top of the laptop. The Slim 9i boasts a refined look, and the illusion isn’t lost when you pick up or open the laptop.

The smooth surface of the lid blends seamlessly into the rounded side edges of the system. The rounded edges provide a soft feel, one that isn’t interrupted by sharp corners. The hinge runs nearly edge to edge and allows for easy, one-finger opening of the display. The hinge offers smooth adjustments of the display yet is strong enough to keep it firmly rooted in place. It has the perfect amount of resistance.

True to its name, this is one slim laptop at only 0.6 inches thick. It’s a thin laptop that looks even thinner than it is because of the rounded edges. It weighs three pounds, which is about average for a 14-inch laptop and heftier than some ultralight 14-inch models we’ve seen recently. It’s about a half pound heavier than the LG Gram 14 and Lenovo’s own ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9. It’s also slightly heavier than the HP Pavilion Plus 14 that’s just under three pounds.

Three pounds isn’t a chore to carry on a daily commute, however, and given the solid, rigid feel of the all-metal chassis, I wouldn’t look to shed any weight. And helping with the overall travel weight is the Slim 9i’s tiny charger that weighs only a hair more than half a pound.

The interior of the laptop is silver — silver keyboard deck with silver keys and a silver bottom panel. The side edges are a bright chrome to offer some contrast. Speaking of contrast, the silver keys with gray key symbols offer less contrast than a traditional black keyboard with white symbols. It’s a latest laptop trend that the Slim 9i follows, and one in which can make it unnecessarily difficult to see the key symbols in certain lighting situations, usually in bright light or a dark room. I’m happy to report that the dark gray key symbols offer enough contrast that making out the key symbols isn’t an issue with the Slim 9i. Plus, there’s two-level keyboard backlighting to help out in dark environs.

The keyboard offers wide, flat keys and shallow travel. I felt fast typing on the Slim 9i; the roomy keys were easy to hit and resulted in very few typos during my tests. I particularly enjoyed the extra-wide keys — Tab, Shift, Enter, Backspace — on either side of the keyboard as well as the large arrow keys in the lower-right corner. The up- and down-arrow keys are half-height but wider than most half-height arrow keys that they were easy to access without hitting the other by mistake.

The touchpad is huge and responsive. It accurately recorded my pinches and swipes and other mouse gestures, but I wish its palm rejection was a bit stronger because I would sometimes accidentally misplace the cursor when typing. I also wish the travel of the touchpad’s click mechanism was a bit shallower. Performing a click on the Slim 9i’s touchpad certainly isn’t a chore, but the click response feels a bit slow compared with the fast, shallow keys of the keyboard.

Display and speakers

An OLED display is a requisite for any premium laptop, and the Slim 9i serves up such a panel and does so with a fine 3840×2400 resolution. That’s a 4K resolution with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The picture it produces is outstanding, with sharp edges, absolute black levels, and vivid colors. The 16:10 screen ratio makes the display feel roomier than its 14-inch size. There’s more room from top to bottom than a widescreen 16:9 display so you can fit more on the screen and are required to scroll less through long documents and web pages. The taller ratio makes a difference on larger 16-inch models, but even more so on a 14-inch laptop that can feel cramped.

The resolution is almost overkill for this size of panel. The image is stellar, but a 2.8K (2880 x 1800) resolution would also look razor-sharp on a 14-inch 16:10 display and might let the laptop run longer. Powering the display is the single biggest draw on battery resources, and the more pixels a display has, the more power is required.

IDG / Matthew Elliott

A 1080p webcam isn’t just required on premium laptops but also on mainstream laptops at this point in time. With the amount of video conferencing done today with remote and hybrid work schedules, a 1080 camera allows you to appear much clearer on video calls than the 720p cams of yore. The Slim 9i features a 1080p webcam in a notch in the screen bezel above the display. To be clear, the notch doesn’t interfere with the display — it’s just a little bump-out on the screen bezel. The cam produces a crisp, well-balanced picture with accurate colors and skin tones. It’s also an IR camera, which means it can use your face for secure logins. There’s also a webcam kill switch on the laptop’s right edge to protect your privacy when you aren’t using the camera.

I’m never prepared to be wowed by a laptop’s audio output since nearly every laptop produces tinny, underwhelming sound. So, what a surprise it was when I fired up the Slim 9i and watched Goose’s performance with Trey Anatasio at Radio City Music Hall on YouTube. The sound from the Slim 9i’s speakers was shockingly dynamic. The Slim 9i features not two but four speakers — a pair of 2-watt speakers and a pair of 3-watt speakers tuned by Bowers and Wilkins. Two of the speakers fire upward from speaker grills that flank the keyboard, while the other two fire downward from each edge of the bottom panel. I heard separation between the high- and mid-tones, from Peter’s keys and Rick’s and Trey’s sublime guitar work. Percussion from Ben and Jeff sounded snappy, and Trevor’s bass was distinct on the low-end even if it was more heard than felt. A solid bass response is lacking, but even having some semblance of a bass response in a compact, 14-inch laptop is appreciated. The sound begins to lose its clarity when you get above 75% on the volume slider, but even at that level there’s enough output to fill a small room.

The port selection is minimal. You get a total of three USB-C ports with Thunderbolt 4 support and a headphone jack. The trio of Thunderbolt 4 ports should cover most of your needs, and Lenovo includes an adapter in the box that adds USB-A, HDMI, and (for some reason) VGA connectivity.


Our Slim 9i test system features an Intel Core i7-1280 processor, 32GB of RAM, integrated Intel Iris Xe graphics, and a 1TB SSD. The Core i7-1280P is a member of Intel’s Alder Lake P series of 28-watt mobile chips. The Core i7-1280P features Intel’s new hybrid architecture with performance and efficiency cores; it has six performance cores, eight efficiency cores, and a total of 20 processing threads. The P series is the 28-watt middle child between Intel’s high-powered, 45-watt H series and the more efficient 15-watt U series.

We compared the Slim 9i’s performance to that of a pair of laptops — the Acer Swift 5 and Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 — that feature the Core i7-1260P chip, which is clocked slightly lower with two fewer performance cores and four fewer processing threads than the Slim 9i’s Core i7-1280P chip. We also included the Core i7-12700H-based HP Pavilion Plus 14 and a pair of systems with 11th-gen Core i7 processors in the Acer Swift 3X and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9. Rounding out the charts are two laptops with AMD Ryzen 7 5000 series chips, the Dell Inspiron 14 7000 and Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 Carbon.

Our first benchmark is PCMark 10, which measures performance on everyday computing work including office productivity tasks, web browsing, and video chats. The Slim 9i performed admirably, finishing second to one of the AMD-based machines and slightly ahead of both laptops with the similar Core i7-1260P chip. It’s notable that the two 11th-gen Core i7-based laptops were a step behind the 12th-gen Intel-based systems, which shows the gains you get with Intel’s latest silicon.

Our HandBrake benchmark tests how a laptop is able to handle crushing CPU loads over a lengthy period—in this case, transcoding a 30GB MKV file to a format suitable for Android tablets using HandBrake, the free video encoding utility. The Slim 9i completed the test in short order, taking longer than only the HP Pavilion Plus 14, which features a higher-powered but less efficient Core i7 H-series processor.

Next up is Cinebench, another CPU-intensive test but one that renders a complex 2D scene over a short period of time. Again, we see the Slim 9i turning in a strong result, finishing behind only the HP Pavilion Plus 14.

This group of laptops with integrated GPUs will not raise the eyebrow of any gamer, but we ran 3DMark’s Time Spy test to get a sense of the capabilities of Intel’s integrated Iris Xe graphics and AMD’s integrated Radeon graphics. The Slim 9i was the only laptop of the bunch to top the 2,000 mark but still lacks the 3D muscle needed to drive AAA titles.

To test a laptop’s battery life, we loop a 4K video using Windows 11’s Movies & TV app, with the laptop set to Airplane mode and earbuds plugged in. We set the screen brightness at a relatively bright 250 nits to 260 nits, which is a good brightness for watching a movie in an office with the lights on. The Slim 9i lasted nearly 12 hours on our battery drain test, which is more than enough runtime to get you through most workdays and an impressive figure considering the 4K display that drains battery resources faster than a lower-resolution display would. That said, its runtime is still an hour or two shorter than competing models.

IDG / Matthew Elliott


If you have $2,000 or so to throw at an ultraportable, the Slim 9i most certainly deserves a spot on your shortlist. It provides everything on a luxury buyer’s list: a beautiful and thin yet rugged design highlighted by a 3D glass lid that protects a high-resolution OLED display that’s powered by the latest Intel silicon and an ample 32GB of RAM. Its average battery life is still long enough to last through even the longest workdays and is offset by additional attractions including a roomy and comfortable keyboard and touchpad, a 1080p webcam, and jarringly robust audio output from the laptop’s four speakers. The Lenovo Slim 9i is one of our favorite ultraportables of 2022 and easily earns an Editors’ Choice award for its luxurious design, gorgeous OLED display, and strong performance.

Killexams : Maserati’s New 750 HP GranTurismo Folgore Is the Marque’s First EV—and Its Most Powerful Car Ever

The Maserati GranTurismo is back and the results are quite literally electric.

The brand’s sporty grand tourer will return to production for the 2024 model year. But this coupe will be available with either a twin-turbo V-6 or an all-electric powertrain, the latter of which makes the car the brand’s first EV.

More from Robb Report

Any conversation about the new GranTurismo has to start with the fully electric Folgore variant. Maserati has been teasing it since production of the model went on hiatus in 2019. The latest generation of the car is built on a modular platform that can support either an internal-combustion or battery-electric powertrain. The Folgore has the latter, which consists of three electric motors—one on the front axle, two on the rear powering each wheel. The trio of motors combines to generate 750 horses (not as much as had been predicted but still a lot) and 995 ft lbs of twist, which can be sent to all four wheels or just to the rear set. Thanks to this, the car can rocket from zero-to-62 mph in 2.7 seconds and is capable of reaching a top speed of 199 mph. It’s also the most powerful car Maserati has ever made.

2024 Maserati GranTurismo Folgore

The three motors get their power from a T-shaped battery pack with 83.0 kWh of usable capacity. Maserati says the car will be able to travel 250 miles on a single charge based on Europe’s WLTP test cycle. The EPA’s testing process is notoriously stricter, so don’t be surprised if that number is listed 15 to 20 percent lower on the US version. Neither range is anything to write home about, but it’s important to remember that the GranTurismo was clearly designed with an emphasis on performance rather than efficiency. Luckily, its 800-volt architecture will allow for DC fast-charging, though it’s unclear how long it will take to top off the battery.

Two other variants, the Modena and Trofeo, will be available when the 2024 GranTurismo launches. Both pack the same twin-turbo Nettuno V-6 found in the marque’s excellent MC20 sports car. In the entry-level Modena, the mill produces 489 hp and 442 ft lbs of torque. In the high-performance Trofeo, it generates 550 hp and 479 ft lbs of torque. The Modena can sprint to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 187 mph, while the Trofeo hits 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and shares a top speed with the Folgore. Both gas-powered models have an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. That means all three GrandTurismo variants offer all-wheel drive (albeit with a rear-wheel bias).

2024 Maserati GranTurismo Modena

Unlike the GranTurismo’s hardware, the new model’s look isn’t all that different from the past generation. The car still sits low to the ground, has a long nose and a curvaceous shape, but those elements are more refined than before. The hood and fenders now form a unified segment that the brand is calling the “Cofango.” The grand tourer is also wider and has a new lighting package, similar to that found on the MC20. The three models all look the same, though the EV version has a more sculpted lower front fascia to maximize aerodynamic performance. It’s a subtle makeover, but one that improves a car already famous for its looks.

Surprisingly, no images of the car’s 2+2 cabin were available as of press time. Maserati did say the car will come equipped with a 12.2-inch digital gauge cluster, 12.3-inch infotainment system, an additional 8.8-inch touchscreen and a 14-speaker audio system. We imagine the space will undergo a more significant reworking than the exterior.

2024 Maserati GranTurismo Trofeo

No official release date has been set yet, but you can expect the GranTurismo to arrive sometime next year. We’ll have to get closer to the launch date to learn the pricing info, though Car and Driver reports that Modena will likely start “just under” $200,000 and that the all-electric Folgore will be the most expensive version. Whether that figure turns out to be accurate remains to be seen, but it’s fair to say the car will run significantly higher than its $135,000 predecessor.

Killexams : Undecember beginner's guide: Get started unlocking your Rune Hunter's full potential © Provided by Android Police

Time to button-mash with your favorite Android controller because we have another action RPG on the deck, and it's similar to Blizzard's Diablo Immortal. Line Games' latest release, Undecember, has made its way to Android. It's no secret that we've been hungry for some action RPG alternatives since Diablo Immortal, and luckily Undecember fits the bill.

Undecember will see you addictively hacking and slashing waves of enemies, looting to gear for challenging multiplayer content, and then navigating a plethora of skill trees to create your ultimate custom build. Of course, many systems accompany Undecember's core features and gameplay, so we've compiled a guide to show everyone how to get an early handle on these mechanics.

Getting started as a Rune Hunter

You'll have a few preliminary steps to follow before you can play. The first is selecting your primary login method; it's crucial to ensure you don't lose your data if you delete the app/swap your gaming device.

Next up, you'll fight multi-waves of enemies during the tutorial phase, letting you test out three weapon types, melee, bow, and staff. Every weapon unlocks a different palette of skills. We recommend using this as a baseline to decide which set of skills/weapon playstyle you prefer to build for your Rune Hunter.

Creating your character

The character customization tools for Undecember are limiting, but at least it is implemented.

Select between a male and female; you can choose a face type, skin tone, and hair style/hair color. Once you've finished customizing your character, tap on Create.


Enter your name and tap Create to finish the character creation process. Congratulations, you're now one step closer to beginning your heroic journey!

Battle system fundamentals

You have to manage your health (HP) and Mana. The HP and Mana bars are denoted as red and blue orbs at the bottom of your screen; once they empty, your bar reaches zero. Skills require using Mana, and HP is your survival measure; you can use potions to restore your HP and Mana.

The bread and butter of any ARPG game is tapping on your skills to perform actions, managing those cooldowns, and then reactively choosing how to begin your fight engagements/disengagements. Equipping a dodge skill (like roll and teleport) and playing to your weapon strengths is essential. Bow and magic wielders prefer to kite from monsters and spam skills, while melee builds will focus on crowd control and survival while in close contact.

See the gifs below for examples of the three available styles you'll encounter in the tutorial.

Melee prefers close-quarter fights and using slashes to control the incoming waves of enemies.

Bow classes prefer a mixture of powerful blows to defeat enemies and use skills to support this playstyle.

Magic wielders have to manage Mana, but the access to elemental skills can quickly turn the tides of a fight and enable a versatile build for both supporting and damage-dealing.

Customizing your skill loadout using skill runes

Adding link runes is how you'll enhance your skills; you can make your skills stronger or add effects.

To get started, you first equip skill runes on a hexagon grid. Essentially adding a skill rune to any empty slots effectively equips it, and you can add a link rune to the skill rune to enhance it. Link runes must match the skill rune's slot color; otherwise, you can't connect the runes.

Once you've finished customizing your skill runes, select a skill to register it under your equippable skill slots. You have two slot sets available, leaving you five equippable skills per slot. Mix and match to your heart's content; remember that some skills are locked behind which weapon you have equipped.

Rune growth

You can level up your runes by selecting elements as material. Experience points transfer to runes of the same color, but only 80% of experience points are transferred to ruins of different colors. You have five elements to select: red, green, blue, earth, and light. You gain bonus experience by transferring elements of the same color as your selected rune during rune growth. However, earth and light will still deliver a bonus experience for runes of any color.

Leveling up runes increases the potency behind skill runes and linked runes. Be sure to collect element material while looting and dissembling gear, all while progressing through ten acts.

Improving your builds with the Zodiac system

As you make progress in Act I, you'll unlock Zodiac. Zodiac is where you'll first Excellerate the base stats of your character. You have the choice to invest in strength, dexterity, and intelligence.

  • Bow-focused (ranged) builds will want to focus on dexterity.
  • Melee-focused builds will want to focus on strength.
  • Magic-wielding builds will want to focus on intelligence.

To level up one of the base stats, tap on the plus sign by the stat of choice, then select Apply > Ok.


You only have so many free resets (removing all invested points) until Act II; otherwise, it will cost Gold or Stardust of Oblivion.

Unlocking specializations

Once you have trait points, you can unlock specializations. Each specialization will have a separate constellation where you can add trait points for each starting node: moon, star, and sun. To access the other constellations, you need to meet the conditions of having spent a number of trait points in your previous Zodiac tree; for example, Leaf requires 15 trait points to access.

Similar to Zodiac stat points, you also have a limited number of resets with trait points; otherwise, it costs Gold or Stardust of Oblivion.

Obtaining equipment and gearing up

You'll acquire new equipment from loot. Visiting a blacksmith grants you the option to disassemble or enchant your gear. Enchanting gear requires essence; dissembling gear gives materials like essence used for enchanting your gear. You'll come across more essence from slaying monsters.

All your equipment has stat requirements (strength, dexterity, intelligence, and player-level checks). Your gear is separated into grades, normal, magic, rare, unique, and legendary; generally, the higher grade, the more enchantment options your gear has, but in some cases, it'll already have some pre-determined effects.

Engineering your playstyle

What Undecember brings to the table that Diablo Immortal and Torchlight: Infinite doesn't is a fully customizable build experience that isn't class-locked. In Undecember, you're playing as the Rune Hunter that has to stop the 13th God, but in this tale, you mold your hero based on skills you select, runes you customize, and skill loadouts you create. Undecember may not be the replacement for new players coming from Diablo Immortal, but it certainly has enough under its belt to warrant a try; any ARPG enthusiast looking for a fresh coat of paint when it comes to the fast-paced combat and character-building should deliver Undecember a shot.

Killexams : HP targets construction sites with autonomous floorplan-printing robots

HP has put forward a small robot it says can dramatically speed up construction work, by autonomously printing guidelines straight from the blueprints onto the floor. Rugged, roadworthy and extremely accurate, Siteprint is a super-quick layout tool.

The robot replaces the time-consuming manual process of site layout, using a variety of different inks to place precise lines, exact curves and faithful reproductions of complex shapes on all kinds of floors, from porous surfaces like concrete and plywood to terrazzo, vinyl or epoxy.

It doesn't require a perfectly smooth or clean floor – indeed, it can handle a certain degree of surface irregularity and obstacles up to 2 cm (0.8 in) high. It runs built-in obstacle and cliff drop sensors for fully autonomous operation, and will work around barriers even if they're not in the plans.

As well as layout lines, it's capable of printing more or less whatever else you need on the floor too, including text notes. Operators set it up using cloud-based tools for job preparation, fleet management and tracking, and can run it on site with a touch-screen tablet and a tripod-mounted "totalstation."

HP claims the SitePrint robot replicated seven hours of manual layout work in 45 minutes in testing, with extreme accuracy


“The existing manual layout process can be slow and labor intensive,” said Albert Zulps, Director of Emerging Technology at Skanska - a global construction and development company currently using the SitePrint system for two of its US projects. "Despite being done by specialists, there is always the risk of human error, which can result in costly reworks. Layout experts are a scarce resource who add a lot of value in terms of planning and strategy, but often end up dedicating most of their time to manual execution. HP SitePrint lets us do more with less, helping reduce schedules thanks to a much faster layout process, and allowing senior operators to focus on other critical activities like quality control.”

While HP hasn't announced pricing, we assume the printer robot itself will be surprisingly cheap, but the ink's gonna be a killer. Yuk yuk.
