Now that the business-centric ThinkPad 8 tablet already had its turn in the spotlight, Lenovo is focusing its energy towards introducing the ThinkPad X1 Carbon. Its best features? At only 2.8-ish pounds, it’s claimed to be the lightest 14-inch ultrabook that sports an “adaptive” keyboard and a fourth-gen Intel Core processor.
MSI has taken the wraps off of the GT60 2OD-261US, which the company claims to be the first-ever laptop with 3K resolution. Designed for hardcore gaming, this behemoth of a device features a 15.6-inch anti-reflective display with 2,880×1620 (WQHD+ 3K) resolution and an Intel Core i7-4700MQ.
Acer’s first touchscreen laptop to run on Chrome OS will arrive in early December for just $299. Known as the Acer Chromebook C720P, it’s the touch-enabled reiteration of last month’s C720 model.
Already considered affordable when last announced, the revamped Acer Chromebook C720 has even gone cheaper and yet offers similar specs than its previous version.
Working in front of a laptop can be daunting, especially when the screen is cramped with so many open programs. The solution? Multiple displays.
Included in Apple’s slew of product announcements are a number of new models in the MacBook Pro lineup. These upcoming notebooks will for the first time feature the Haswell processors by Intel, which is expected to boost battery life and processing performance.
Well, actually, it’s one of those “rumors” that you know is true and you only need to hear it from the horse’s mouth to confirm. Well, the horse has neighed and kept on neighing a few more. Nokia Lumia 2520 is now official.
Chrome OS-powered laptops are selling like hotcakes these days. That said, Acer recently made its Chromebook C720 official, offering better hardware than its predecessor without overly increasing the price.
Chrome OS was one of those technologies that made me go “WHYYYYYY???” when it was first announced. Maybe it was because I (and a lot of people) was expecting a more traditional Linux flavor, Google-style. Or maybe it was because I couldn’t see the value of an operating system that’s usable only when it’s online.
Microsoft has officially taken the wraps off of its second generation of Windows 8 tablets, including the new Surface Pro 2. Packed with significant hardware boosts and software enhancements, the next-gen Pro addresses several issues found in the original model.
The long-awaited refresh to Microsoft’s in-house tablets happened last Monday, and that covered the new Surface 2. With many changes deemed beneficial for users, the Windows RT-powered tablet comes with performance increase and much-needed improvement in screen resolution.
There’s a lot to be said about Windows 8, mostly unflattering ones. But that hasn’t stopped Microsoft from convincing you that the platform is ok. The upcoming major update seems hell-bent on answering much of the complaints about it. If that’s not enough, MS delivered a one-two punch by lowering the price of the Surface tabtops.
This post was a long time coming but I only found the SD card that I used to take the pics for this event today. Oh well, better late than never. Anyway, with more and more users clamoring to get the most value for their money, it’s no longer enough to just release a device that has the best specs.
