Microsoft Quietly Slips Two Sizes Of Surface Book 2 Into The Market

Sometimes I really don’t get what some consumer product makers are trying to achieve. They came up with a product that they obviously want to sell, yet, not only did they launch it quietly, but they deny the public of the marketing materials publicly available on places like, say, YouTube. The Microsoft Surface Book 2 is one such example. You see, prior to picking up the news, we saw a video put up on Microsoft Surface YouTube channel which I personally subscribed to. When trying to embed the video in my draft article, we noted the video “is unlisted” and was advised to “be considerate and think twice before sharing.” Obviously, I can just ignore it and go ahead and share it anyway, but I honor the words and thus, you won’t see embedded video of it in this post.

Razer Updates Blade Stealth With Larger Display And Gunmetal Option

The Razer Blade Stealth introduced last year, the late 2016 model with a 12.5-inch IGZO multitouch display has gotten an update. It is now larger, at 13.3-inch boasting an eye-watering QHD+ display with 3,200 x 1,800 pixels. Still as thin as ever, measuring a mere 0.52 inches (13 mm) and tipping the scale at 2.93 pounds (1.32 kilograms), the new Razer Blade Stealth features an alluring CNC-milled aircraft-grade aluminum now in a choice of black or gunmetal gray finish. The latter features a tone-on-tone Razer logo and a white backlit keyboard for that professional look. Continue reading Razer Updates Blade Stealth With Larger Display And Gunmetal Option

Here Are The First Laptops From China Telecom Giant, Huawei

To everyday consumers, Huawei is probably known for its mobile devices, but today, or rather, a couple of days ago, that changes as the China telecom giant introduces a line of laptops called MateBook. If don’t already know, this is the first foray into laptop market for Huawei and with many gadgets coming out of China of late, they are looking pretty sleek. Or should I say, a little MacBook-ish kind of sleek. The line up, which includes a 13-inch fanless laptop (Huawei MateBook X), a 2-in-1 (Huawei MateBook E) and a 15.6-inch portable (Huawei MateBook D), is slated to be available in summer 2017 for 700-1699 euros, depending on the models and configurations.

There’s No Microsoft Surface Pro 5, It Is Just The New Surface Pro

There are so many laptop options out there that sometimes, we find it pointless to tell you that there’s another new one out there. But we heard there’s a new Microsoft Surface Pro and we also read that it is pretty dope in both performance and the look department. Anyways, if you are still expecting Surface Pro 5, well, don’t. It is not happening. Microsoft has removed the number and it is now just Microsoft Surface Pro. Marketed as the “most versatile laptop” (but it is more like a laptop/tablet hybrid, really), Microsoft said the new Surface Pro “has been redesigned from the inside out,” with the machine now boasting 50 percent more battery life than the 4 (up to 13.5 hours of use per charge) and 2.5 times faster than the 3.

Microsoft New Surface Laptop Announced, Has Alcantara In The Mix

We love how Apple and later, Samsung and LG, made the gadget world more beautiful. Without them, we wouldn’t have expect Microsoft to pull the socks in the design department. The latest of Microsoft’s effort can be seen in the new Microsoft Surface Laptop. Sporting a clean, elegant design, this sleek portable computing device comes in four rich tone-on-tone combinations with the keyboard spruced up by Alcantara fabric. Yes. That Alcantara. The same type that you usually found in automobile seats and upholstery, but it does cover the keys, of course; it was the area surrounding the keyboard that gets this luxurious fabric.

Acer Enters Thin Form Gaming Laptop Market With Predator Triton 700

For the longest time, Razer Blade gaming laptops stood unchallenged for their game prowess in an astounding thin form factor. But not anymore. Acer, the name that’s also no stranger in the gaming arena, has took up the challenge to make a thin form factor gaming laptop called Predator Triton 700. While the 18 mm profile this black slab of beauty touts is not the thinnest in the industry, it is still far thinner than anything outside of Razer’s domain and perhaps more importantly, it has the grunt that should give gamers an alternative outside of Razer’s offerings.

GPD Pocket Puts The Power Of A Laptop In The Palm Of Your Hand

I am not sure about the market for tiny laptop, or as some would call it UMPC (ultra mobile PC), given the current state of smartphone and tablet development, but in case you are in the market for one, here’s one for your consideration.

DELL Unveiled 32-inch 8K Display, 27-inch QHD Smart Workspace And More

These days, the tech world is all about absurd tech which we suspect are solely with the aim of making tech watchers’ jaw drop. These gadgets go beyond ‘wow’; they will make you go like “no shit, are they serious?, or maybe just “no freaking way!” So far, we have witnessed a ginormous 21-inch laptop with curved screen, a refrigerator that lets you see what’s inside without opening, a flash drive that packs 2TB, a laptop that packs three monitors et cetera, but those are just the tip of the iceberg. There are more and DELL is responsible for a couple too, including an eye-watering 32-inch 8K monitor (8K!) and a 27-inch QHD Smart Workspace, the world’s first smart workspace that pretty much negates the need for a mouse or even a keyboard.
