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.
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.
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.
HP has taken the veil off the new limited edition EliteBook Folio 1020. While its name is quite a mouthful to say, it’s one sleek-looking laptop. It has received a new colour scheme and a pair of Bang & Olufsen speakers, which should promise better sound quality than a typical laptop.
Earlier today HP has officially launched two of its latest 2-in1 devices for Malaysian market in the form of Spectre x360 and 2015 Pavilion x2. While the Spectre x360 was already available for order last month, the new 2015 Pavilion x2 is revealed for the first time in Malaysia since its recent global announcement.
If you’re an especially active user on MSI’s English forums, take note; you might just be able to redeem a gaming laptop from the Taiwanese company. Dubbed as the MSI Rewards Programme (MRP), it aims to reward active members of the forum. Other than an MSI GE62 Apache gaming laptop up for redemption, there are also a GTX 960 graphics card and copies of Far Cry 4 and The Elder Scrolls up for grab.
Want a lot of storage without sacrificing performance? Then Samsung’s new 850 PRO and 850 EVO SSDs are perfect. With a huge 2TB capacity, these are the first consumer-oriented 2TB SSD drives from Samsung to enter the market. That being said, a high capacity SSD such as these will still not come cheap. (At least, not yet.)
Microsoft has added a new variant of the Surface Pro 3 to its online store without telling anyone about it. This new cheaper version of the high end Intel Core i7 powered tablet trades storage space for a lower price tag. Whether this makes it worth it is questionable, but 128GB of storage is nothing to sneeze at.
Those who have heard of ThinkPad way before Lenovo acquired IBM back in 2005 are in for a treat. David Hill, the Vice President of Design at Lenovo, is teasing a “retro” ThinkPad laptop that will feature the “original design details” of early ThinkPad laptops without the added bulk. “Think of it like stepping into a time machine and landing in 1992 (when the ThinkPad line was first introduced), but armed with today’s technology,” Hill said.
The MSI GS30 Shadow is an interesting product. On one hand, it is a lightweight and portable laptop with a very capable processor and integrated graphics. But once the laptop is connected to the GamingDock, it turns into one beastly gaming machine that can be equipped with a desktop graphics card. While this is a very interesting take on portability and power (when you need it), is it worth its asking price that starts from RM7,499?
