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.
While tablets and smartphones continue to eat into the portable computing market share, laptops and Ultrabooks are still considered to be the most practical option when it comes to productivity. There is just so much more that you can do on a laptop, and with Ultrabooks coming into their own and dropping in prices, people are starting to realize just how much fun productivity can be on a much lighter device.
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!
ASUS Philippines is currently having a media event right now regarding the launch of their new Windows 8 devices that will soon be available in our country. We are on the event to check out these latest devices and we are very impressed on their initial line-up. They have an entry for each level and they didn’t limit the adaption of Windows 8 even on budget conscious consumers.
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.
Lenovo recently celebrated their 20th anniversary of “ThinkPad Innovation” and along with the event were the unveiling of two new ultrabooks named as ThinkPad X1 Carbon and ThinkPad T430u. These ultrabooks are equipped with high-quality hardware and as expected, it will inflate the price out of the usual laptops. These are also Lenovo’s thinnest T-series yet.
Lenovo launched two new IdeaPads dubbed as Lenovo IdeaPad S300 and Lenovo IdeaPad S400. The two laptops were incredibly thin as they measure less than an inch thick at 21.9mm and it weighs for only 1.8kgs. These new laptops were made to bridge the gap between a netbook and a laptop but with a lower cost even though there are noticeable upgrades.
Together with the cameras launched by Sony Philippines last June 21, 2012 comes the complete line of the latest Sony VAIO E Series. The VAIO E11 and VAIO E14 were the two assigned to lead the way in the said event. The new E series were tagged as “notebook PC”, meaning, it will be smarter and more reliable in other laptops out there. These stylish notebook PCs will probably suit the fast paced lifestyle of students who are always on the run.

Lenovo Philippines recently launched two of their latest ultrabooks last June 21, 2012 at the Forum in PICC. The two were the Lenovo IdeaPad U310 and Lenovo IdeaPad U410 which will soon be two of the hottest gadgets that will hit the Philippine gadget market by next month. Actually, we were invited in the said launch but we were unable to cope up with the schedule so we didn’t had the chance to cover it face to face.
