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?
You might be familiar with motion sensing controller such as Kinect or Leap Motion but how about eye tracking? Truth to be told, both alternative method of computer interactions is still quite niche among consumers (with the exception of game consoles) but that doesn’t stop MSI from exploring the option of having eye tracking capability into its laptop.
With the help of a Swedish company called Tobii Tech through its EyeX technology, MSI has implemented that very feature into a special GT72 Dominator Pro gaming laptop which the company has showcased at its booth during the recent Computex 2015 in Taipei.
Lenovo Tech World may have wrapped some weeks back, but there was one thing that we haven’t yet covered: a discovery at the Experience Zone that shows Lenovo’s rather strong gaming presence in its home country. We may be used to the awesome Y series of gaming laptops, but in China, Lenovo also offers a range of peripherals and even a new gaming laptop called the “Rescuer”.
Even though the AMD 6th generation A-Series processors were only launched last week at Computex Taipei, we believe we have just spotted the first product in our market to feature one of the new processors. It came in the form of HP Pavilion 15, as listed on HP Malaysia’s official online store.
Dell has introduced a new range of Inspiron 14 and 15 laptops for the Malaysian market. These new laptops feature slight changes from the previous editions, most notably the return of an optical drive to the specifications. An NVIDIA discrete GPU also replaces the mobile AMD Radeon on the machines, leading to something is quite different.
It was first unveiled at CES 2015 but as weird as this might sounds, this gaming laptop somehow has yet to make its way into the market. Nevertheless, AORUS – the specialized premium gaming laptop arm of GIGABYTE – still claims that AORUS X5 as the most powerful 15-inch gaming laptop in the world.
