If you’re looking for a slim and powerful notebook but don’t want to splurge on an Ultrabook, the Lenovo IdeaPad 14-inch Z400 and 15.6 inch Z500 might be perfect for you. They’re 25% slimmer when compared to your typical notebook, but compromise on none of the performance.
NoypiGeeks was recently invited to Asus Philippines’ launch event for their first wave of Windows 8 devices. We’ve already covered their more traditional Windows 8 notebook lineup in a previous post. While they all featured capacitive touchscreens to take full advantage of the latest version of Windows, tablets present a more interesting option for users because of their portability and since Windows 8 has been specifically optimized for tablets.
With Windows 8 being officially launched in the country just a few days ago, we’re beginning to see the first onslaught of Windows 8 devices hitting the market. ASUS, being one of the global leaders in innovative computing devices, was one of the first to launch their own line of tablets, notebooks, ultraportables and all-in-one PCs, all of which were powered by the latest and greatest version of Microsoft’s popular OS, Windows 8. Of course, I was there for NoypiGeeks to tweet some photos while I grabbed some hands on time on everything from the entry-level VivoBook X202E to the huge mother of an AIO, the All-in-One PC ET2300, so if you haven’t followed me or NoypiGeeks yet, you better do!
Most people are aware of the need to secure themselves and their PCs, Macs or mobile devices, particularly when going online. However cybercrime is evolving at such a fast rate, and new forms are being detected each year. It’s bad enough that 40% of online adults aren’t aware that malware are capable of executing themselves discreetly, but what’s even more troubling is that 55% aren’t even sure if their systems are free of any viruses. These are just some of the scary statistics that were discussed when I had the pleasure of representing NoypiGeeks at the 2012 Norton Cybercrime Report at the Torch Restaurant in Greenhills, which was hosted by Jason Mok, Consumer Sales Manager for Norton in Bangladesh, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand.
The pricing details of Microsoft’s latest operating system is finally out and interested people can now place their pre-order. The launch of the said OS is supposed to be on October 26 but Microsoft made the move to let people do the pre-order if ever they need or want the DVD disc. Of course, the option of downloading the full Windows 8 Pro OS online will still be available by purchasing it through Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant.
