As per our announcement few weeks ago, we have embarked on a quest together with Microsoft Malaysia to seek out stories from users regarding their experience with Windows 10. In exchange for the most creative #MYWindows10Story from users, we are giving away a fully-kitted Microsoft Surface 3 which is inclusive of Surface 3 Type cover and Surface Pen.
Today marks the beginning of Week 4 and the final week for our contest. In other words, this is the last chance for you to win great goodies from Microsoft through this contest! Hence, let us reveal the final weekly theme for our #MYWindows10Story contest.
We are now two days away from the public release of Windows 10 on 29 July and while this will not be the last time you’ll hear about the operating system on our site , it is now time for the final part of our Get To Know Windows 10 series. For the final piece of the series, we are going to slightly broaden our discussion and are taking a look into productivity with the help of several new features within the operating system.
Intel’s new Skylake processors are due to be officially announced soon, and the expected early leaks have begun appearing. Slides detailing the new Skylake processors intended for the refreshed Apple MacBooks have surface, and it looks like there will be a significant increase in performance over the existing broadwell processors.
Acer has announced new variants of the Revo One compact computer for the Malaysian market; this time with more powerful fifth generation Intel Core i3 and i5 processors inside. An earlier Intel Celeron processor model is already available in stores, and these new machines will soon be joining it.
When it comes to shopping for a budget-friendly laptop, sacrifices have to be made. One would think an affordable laptop will be heavy, slow, and poorly designed. These attributes, however, do not apply to the Lenovo U41. Starting from RM1,871, this could very possibly be the best value for money laptop you can get today.
For those who followed our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, you might be aware that we were in Bangkok, Thailand yesterday for a regional-level technical workshop with ASUS. Over there, the company has discussed several topics including the brand new STRIX GTX 980 Ti graphics card that was just released in Malaysia.
Presented by Ken Liu, the company’s Chief Engineer for graphics card, he started the presentation with a rather interesting slide: the release timeline for its three future versions of GTX 980 Ti cards which include the ROG Poseidon, ROG Matrix, and 20th Anniversary Gold Edition.
The AIMS Group has announced a successful bid for Jaring’s data centre and network related customer assets. The acquisition will see AIMS take control of Jaring’s IPv4 addresses and all existing customers related to data dentre, broadband and access, cloud and managed services. The estimated value of the unexpired contracts is at RM50 million.
Mechanical keyboard enthusiasts, you might be interested in Logitech’s new tenkeyless (TKL) mechanical keyboard, the G310 Atlas Dawn. Unlike other mechanical keyboards in the market (which typically use Cherry MX switches), the G310 uses its own Romer-G switches which are “faster than competing switches”.
If you happen to own the brand new Retina MacBook Pro, you might want to update it as soon as you can. Apple has just released a firmware update for the mid-2015 model that addresses an issue with the flash storage of the laptop. Apparently, in “rare cases”, this issue may cause data corruption. Unless you’re willing to lose precious data stored in your MacBook Pro, we’d perform the update as soon as possible.
Earlier this week, AMD has announced yet another new addition to its family of A-Series desktop APUs in the form of A8-7670K. Taking over the role from A8-7650K as the highest-end A8 APU in the series, the new processor is apparently targeted for everyday computing and popular eSports-oriented games as well as Windows 10 users.
Welcome to yet another edition of our Get To Know Windows 10 series and for those who are new to the series, so far we have covered two topics: the new Start Menu, and Windows Hello. Now that we are only a week away from the official global release of Windows 10, the timing is rather right to discuss yet another new feature in the operating system called Windows Continuum.
