IPRO Livepad 8.9: The Sub-RM 1000 Windows 8.1 Tablet With WUXGA IPS Display

by Chief Chapree · 1 day ago · 2 Comments · 1.5k views

IPRO Livepad 8.9 Windows 8.1 Tablet 01

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.

2015 Alienware 15 Gaming Laptop Hands On 03

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?

The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is finally available in Malaysia, featuring an extra curved screen running down the right side of the device.

Review: Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro – Flagship Hardware, Sub-par Software

by Andrew Cheng · 4 weeks ago · 6 Comments · 6.6k views

z2-pro-review-6

Lenovo isn’t exactly the first name that comes to people’s mind when it concerns flagship Android devices, but with the Vibe Z2 Pro, the company is trying to show the world that it is also capable of coming up with one. On paper, the Z2 Pro is definitely impressive, but is cramming a bunch of high-end hardware on a smartphone enough to make it a flagship device?
