Who are the most demanding, power-hungry laptop shoppers? Some would say gamers, but we'd pick mobile workstation users—design or scientific pros who want machines that are not only fast but durable, backed by independent software vendor (ISV) certifications of compatibility with elite apps, and ready to rock with huge datasets and complex visuals. The HP ZBook 15 G4 (starts at $1,847.78; $3,181 as tested) is such a system.
Since introducing its first Yoga 2-in-1 in 2012, Lenovo has made more convertibles than Detroit did during the '50s and '60s. Today, you can get the company's flip-and-fold laptop/tablet design in a variety of screen sizes under any of three brands at different price points: Yoga systems are the mainstream consumer models. IdeaPad Flex machines are economy 2-in-1's.
People buy 13.3-inch laptops for grab-and-go convenience and portability that no desktop replacement can match. Many also buy to make a fashion statement: While there are a few simple note-takers like the $329 Acer Swift 1 in the segment, systems like the Dell XPS 13 and HP Spectre x360 are executive status symbols with some of the most stylish designs and sophisticated engineering in the notebook world.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
