Take a look at the future of laptop tech with Aorus.

This is a potentially toxic topic, but I’m still honestly asking: Why might it be a bad thing if some games are made and marketed specifically for men?

I focus a bit more on traditional headphones and monitors, so when Trisha Hershberger stopped by my office with a pair of gaming headsets, it was a fun experiment for me to compare two different headset solutions from Kingston and Creative.
