Brian Westover
Brian Westover

I am ‘Brian Westover‘ the go-to guy for laptop shopping recommendations. I have been writing reviews on computers and other things for over ten years. I learned the ropes at PC Labs and PCMag.com for several years before moving on to other publications like bestlaptopventure.com and Tom’s Guide. Though I spend most of my time in front of a computer, I have written extensively about a wide variety of other topics, from workout equipment and household appliances to televisions and home entertainment systems. Whether or not somebody is paying me to write about anything, if I’ve used it, I have thoughts about it.

My Areas of Expertise:

  • Mobile and stationary computers
  • Elements of a Computer
  • Accessory and gaming equipment
  • Design and ergonomics

John Burek

John Burek almost three decades as an editor, writer, and columnist for tech publications, I’ve covered everything from the 386SX to 64-core CPUs. For over a quarter of a century, I toiled away at the massive Computer Shopper magazine (and its digital successor), nicknamed the phone directory for PC purchasers and the bane of every postal delivery person’s existence. After nine years, I served as editor-in-chief of Computer Shopper, whose digital material was absorbed by PCMag.com. For a short time, I was also the head editor of the renowned extreme technology website Tom’s Hardware.

In that time, I’ve assembled and disassembled enough desktop computers to stock a whole block of cybercaf√©s. I’ve constructed computers from the motherboard up and had them boot in under 5 minutes during timed competitions.

I started off editing academic scientific books and then moved on to editing “Dummies”-style computer manuals for Brady Books (now, BradyGames). I was born and raised in New York, attended NYU for my journalism degree, and was just initiated into Phi Beta Kappa.

Skills I Have Honed

  • Mobile and stationary computers
  • Hardware for personal computers and modifying or constructing high-end computers. Screwdrivers have always been my favorite tool.
  • Methodologies for evaluating and assessing PC hardware (including laptops, desktops, storage, CPUs, graphics cards, displays, and more) are being developed and fine-tuned.
  • Refining and simplifying technical writing for lay readers. (I have also held the positions of copy chief and a fact checker.)

Skills I Have Honed:

I have been a writer for nearly 15 years now; I started my start in Kansas City covering education and municipal government. Somehow, I’ve managed to stay alive. I’ve been keeping tabs on recent developments in the PC graphics card industry, as well as SpaceX’s Starlink network and new internet security threats (which led me to camp out in front of a Best Buy to get an RTX 3000). Please share your thoughts and advice with me in the comments; I’m constantly looking to further my knowledge!

This is the Finest Piece of Technology I’ve Ever Had:

  • The Nintendo Famicom was my first gaming system.
  • Despite PlayStation’s popularity, I was devoted to my Sega Saturn.
  • When I was in college, I received an iPod Video as a present.
  • The Xbox 360 is the winner hands down.
  • My first truly respectable smartphone was the Galaxy Nexus.
  • My custom desktop PC from 2014 is still going strong.
