The new 15.6-inch Gigabyte P15F v2 gaming laptop is now available in Malaysia.

Fresh from the release of the new Inspiron 14 7000 series laptops, Dell Malaysia has recently announced yet another addition to its Inspiron line up in our market in the form of the new Inspiron 13 7000 Series 2-in-1 laptop.

Hewlett-Packard has had a relatively quiet IFA 2014, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have anything new to show. The company has brought a range of laptops and Chromebooks to the show, including two additions to the HP Envy lineup.

Lenovo has refreshed the ThinkPad Helix with Intel’s new Core M processors, and it looks like they may have a solid contender in the convertible laptop market.

Toshiba has shown off a new Chromebook 2 and Satellite Radius 11 Windows convertible tablet. It doesn’t sound like much, but the Radius 11 shows that the company isn’t quite ready to give up on the whole folding laptop concept yet.
