MSI Malaysia has announced that it will be hosting the MSI Gaming Fair. The event, which will take place at Low Yat Plaza’s concourse level, starts on Monday 28 July to 3 August 2014. The week event will feature MSI’s latest gaming notebook lineup, providing hands-on demo of the notebooks including the latest MSI GS60 Ghost.
As you might have heard, the new Microsoft Surface Pro 3 will be made available in Malaysia in late August but our first hands-on experience with the device took place a month ago during Computex 2014 in Taiwan. Alongside that, we also have captured a very detailed walkthrough of Surface Pro 3 design and features by Brian Hall, the General Manager of Surface team at the tablet’s Taiwanese media launch event.
It is slightly longer than our average videos but nevertheless, it is a good watch if you always been wondering what Surface Pro 3 is able to do and how it is like in action. Priced from RM 2729, the Surface Pro 3 is now available for pre-order at selected retailers throughout Malaysia.
Truth to be told, HP is usually not the name that one will utters when it comes to gaming notebook. That is rather unfortunate because HP actually had the chance to turn that around when it bought quite a well-known gaming PC company called VoodooPC in 2006 but as the story goes, things went downwards soon after.
In the end, the only thing that left from that acquisition is the “Envy” moniker although it is definitely not the same Envy that we knew from VoodooPC era. Fast forward to last week, it seems that HP is planning a comeback in the gaming notebook space; thanks to the emergence of these leaked images that are said to an upcoming gaming notebook from HP.
So, someone has jumped the gun earlier today. Nevertheless, the official info has finally arrived from Microsoft Malaysia few hours ago and it pretty much confirmed the pricing that we heard from senQ and Senheng folks: the official RRP for Surface Pro 3 will start from RM 2,729 onwards.
In addition to that, Microsoft Malaysia has also revealed the full list of retailers throughout the country that will begin to accept pre-orders from tomorrow, 1 July onwards.
In the mobile computing space, a lot of emphasis have been given to power efficiency these days as processor makers and their OEM partners alike are looking into providing longer battery life for users to depend on without sacrificing performance. As for AMD, the company claimed that this has always been part of its focus for the longest time.
As proof, AMD stated that it has managed to achieve 10x improvement in power efficiency for the company’s mobile APU during the last six years; progressing from the Puma architecture in 2008 up to the recently launched Kaveri for mobile. That being said, the company aims to gain even more power efficiency for its APU in the not-so-distant future.
Using an aging laptop and desperately need a new one? Well, here’s a good news for you: Intel together with several of its OEM partners and Microsoft will be having the Intel Fire Sale this week at Plaza Low Yat, Kuala Lumpur. The sale is part of the company’s on-going PC Refresh campaign and it will take place for only 3 days; from 26 to 28 June.
There have been reports that Microsoft was supposed to unveil a smaller version of its Surface tablet alongside Surface Pro 3 at last month’s press event in New York. Called Surface Mini, the company’s CEO Satya Nadella and Executive VP Stephen Elop apparently believed that the Qualcomm-based tablet might not be competitive enough for the market and subsequently decided not to announce it at the event.
Sounds like another usual dosage of industry gossip, isn’t it? Well, it turns out the Surface Mini actually exists and this is confirmed by Microsoft itself…by accident.
As mentioned earlier, Acer Malaysia is about to launch the brand new Aspire Switch 10 2-in-1 notebook in our market today. However, Switch 10 is actually just one of the agenda as there are couple of more products that Acer will unleash today covering laptops, Android tablets, and All-In-One PCs.
Somehow, there are not much Intel Bay Trail products out there despite it being capable of running full version of Windows 8. If you are in the same boat of thoughts with me regarding this particular observation, well…the Intel Bay Trail product pool in Malaysia will become slightly bigger today.
This is due to the official Malaysian launch of the new Acer Switch 10 that will take place in the next few hours’ time. But first, let’s take a closer look at this new Windows 8.1 2-in-1 PC which we managed to have a brief hands-on experience at Acer’s booth during the recent Computex 2014 in Taiwan.
