I have been buying a lot of USB-C devices recently to prepare for this day.
This coming 1st September 2017, marks my third year in Tech in Asia. Technically, I started work before my official start date, because the previous guy left in August 2014 and I have to do the takeover before that.
I backed the PINE A64 on Kickstarter on 17th January 2016. The project was funded on 23rd January 2016 after raising a total of US$1,731,466 out of their initial goal of US$31,416 from 36,781 backers.
I chose the US$29 reward level and shipping to Singapore cost another US$12. So in total, I paid US$41 (S$58).
Lenovo YOGA Tablet 2
Similar to its predecessor the new YOGA Tablet 2 models focus on technology that adapts to users, making computing intuitive and fun. The tablet also comes in two operating systems – a 10″ model with Windows and one year of free Office 365, as well as 8″ and 10″ models that come with Android 4.4 Kit Kat. Powered with the latest Intel Atom processor multimedia, playback and rendering make the tablets great for multitaskers. Its dual, large-chamber speakers are front-facing for dynamic audio, while Dolby Audio and Wolfson Master HiFi ensure a multi-channel listening experience just like the movies. Sporting a number of useful features such as a Micro SD card slot and a micro USB with OTG connection that lets users charge their phone (requires separate cable), users can also enjoy extra-long battery life while staying mobile longer in any of its four modes. For complete online connectivity, all the Android models offer 4G, while the 8″ Android version also offers the ability to make voice calls.

My current work laptop is a Apple MacBook Air 13 Inch (Mid 2011). Despite getting it back in March 2012, the laptop itself is a 3-year old model. My company, migme, has a policy to change laptop every 3 years and this time round, they bought for me a 13″ MacBook Pro Retina (Late 2013).
The processor is a 2.4GHz Dual-core Intel Core i5 (Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz) with 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM and 256GB PCIe-based Flash Storage. This configuration cost S$2,368.
I was invited to a Dell event 2 days back and they announced new laptops (Latitude, Inspiron & XPS) and new tablets (Venue 7, Venue 8 & Venue 11 Pro). Since most of the stuff are still to be announced (TBA), I will start off with this post on Inspiron 14/15/17 7000 series, Inspiron 11 3000 series & Inspiron 23 all-in-one as I got all the prices for it and you can already get it now from Dell.
