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.
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.
Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series
The Inspiron 13 7000 Series is a 2-in-1 device. The device runs on Windows 8.1 and features a built-in passive stylus and a 360-degree rotating hinge allowing consumers to switch seamlessly between laptop and tablet in one fluid motion.
The Dell Inspiron 13 7000 Series starts from S$999 from dell.com.sg.
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.
Inspiron 11 3000 Series Laptops
Alienware, the pioneer in specialty high-performance PC gaming systems, announced its latest and most powerful gaming laptops, the Alienware 14, Alienware 17 and Alienware 18. The laptops feature all new performance graphics, processors (Intel 4th Generation Core Processors) and components engineered for extreme performance.
They also introduce a new range of Alienware laptop bags named Alienware Vindicator Laptop Bags specifically designed to house the new Alienware 14, Alienware 17 and Alienware 18 laptops. The series includes a backpack, messenger bag and slim carrying case, while their styling reflects a fusion of urban and military influences. The bags feature sturdy, weather-resistant materials and reinforced handles or straps for comfort and durability, and have smartly-designed, dedicated compartments that allow for organization and protection of essential accessories.
Chromebooks have arrived in Singapore and for some reasons, they are only on sale at Courts and not elsewhere like Challenger, Harvey Norman or Best Denki. I guess Courts got the exclusivity rights for the time being.
