A typical Intel Atom-based Windows 8.1 tablet in the market does not usually come with a full HD display. After all, such tablet is usually made for the budget segment of the market and having lower resolution display would tone its price tag down.
But not for IPRO Livepad 8.9 though as it is actually equipped with an 8.9-inch WUXGA IPS display. That’s 1920 x 1200 resolution, to be exact and believe it or not: the tablet still costs under RM 1000.

So, the 2015 Alienware 17 is not the only new Alienware gaming laptop in town. Also unveiled at CES 2015, Dell Malaysia today has also officially launched the new 2015 Alienware 15 for our market although it was already available through the company’s online store starting from last month.
Just like its bigger brother, Dell stated that the 2015 Alienware 15 is lighter and slimmer than its predecessor. By predecessor, we mean the Alienware M15x that was discontinued in 2011. It would be mind boggling if the 2015 version is not slimmer and lighter, right?
