By Radu Iorga

Razer had a premiere today, by debuting a brand new laptop, the smallest of its class, with a 15.6 inch screen in the mix. It relies on an Intel hexa core CPU, 8th gen of course, together with GeForce GTX 10 graphics card. It measures just 16.8 mm in thickness and has great performance.

The Razer Blade 15 is placed right between the Blade 14 and the Blade Pro. It ships with a 15.6 inch screen, that provides a 144 Hz refresh rate and a Full HD or 4K resolution. By the way the screen can also be a touchscreen. There’s also an Intel Core i7-8750H CPU inside, 16 GB of RAM and up to 32 GB of RAM, as well as a PCIe SSD storage, with up to 512 GB capacity. You can go as high as 2 TB by the way and Windows 10 is the OS of choice.

Razer Blade 15 is fully packed with connectivity options: 3 USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi ac. There’s also USB 3.1, Mini Display Port and a combo of headphones and microphone port, as well as HDMI 2.0b. Sticking to the Razer tradition, the laptop packs a Razer Chroma lit keyboard, with anti ghosting support. Front stereo speakers are here, plus a HD webcam and 80 Wh battery with support for NVIDIA Optimus tech.

The graphics cards include your choice of the GTX 1060 Max-Q or the GTX 1070 Max-Q. The laptop has a thickness of just 16.8 mm and it’s made of a single block of aluminum, via CNC process. It’s also resilient to scratches and finished in beautiful black. Heat dissipation is also available, plus there’s a special vapor chamber that aids with the cooling.

We have details about the prices below:

  • FHD (60Hz) + GTX 1060 + 16 GB RAM + 256 GB SSD = $1899
  • FHD(144Hz) + GTX 1060 + 16 GB RAM + 512 GB SSD = $2199

Acer Bringing Amazon Alexa to Windows PCs Starting May 23rd

By Radu Iorga

Tomorrow is a big day for Amazon Alexa, that’s coming to Windows PCs, to spite Cortana. Acer is pulling off this move, by launching the famous assistant included in the TV show Mr. Robot on its devices. This is a premiere, which we detail below.

Acer announced this week that Alexa will be rolling out new Windows 10 PCs, within the Switch, Swift and Aspire series, that have Amazon Alexa on board. This is big news for Amazon, that already had its assistant on phones, tablets and various smart speakers. Acer’s notebooks are the first in the industry to offer this support, even the Acer Spin 3 and Acer Spin 5 series, which are available at retailers right now.

The inaugural models for this are the Acer Spin 5 and Acer Spin 3 devices, with availability slated for May 23 and the 26th respectively. Amazon Alexa has also been confirmed as supported on the Acer Nitro 5 Spin convertible gaming notebook line next month. Plus, the Aspire All in One PCs are also expected to get a similar treatment. We’re not 100% sure how well Alexa integrates with Windows 10 PCs and how much it lets you access from the OS.

A comical moment would have having Alexa start up Cortana or viceversa. Alexa can be asked to manage smart home devices from the PC, including lighting, thermostats and home appliances, all of that via voice. Amazon could have released Alexa in the Microsoft Store, to put it on all device brands, but Microsoft is probably not a big fan of that. In the meantime we expect Cortana to get an upgrade and become smarter, like Google Assistant did recently.

Huawei MateBook X Pro Now Available Priced at $1199, With Windows 10 in the Mix

By Radu Iorga

Huawei debuted the MateBook X Pro at MWC 2018, receiving accolades for the product and appreciation. Now the premium Windows 10 laptop is available at last, priced at $1199. Let’s see what you get for the money.

Huawei Matebook X Pro is priced at $1,199.99 and for that amount it gives you an Intel Core i5-8250U CPU, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of SSD storage and a beautiful metal body. There’s also a webcam here, that has become a bit of a trademark, because it lifts up from a key in the keyboard. Available in Space Gray and Mystic Silver, the device also has a higher end version, priced at $1499.99.

That one jumps up to a Core i7-8550U, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage. There’s also an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory, an area where I feel that Huawei was skimpy. While the MateBook X was fanless, the Pro gets a fan, because of the extra hardware that generates more heat. The special webcam is a hidden privacy camera, hidden in the keyboard between the F6 and F7 keys.

If you ask me, the 14 inch multitouch screen is the selling point, with very narrow bezels, 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution and an USB Type-A port. There’s even more goodies, like Dolby Atmos acoustics, a fingerprint scanner in the power button and spill proof keyboard. The most amazing thing here is the 4.9 mm thickness (at the slimmest end) and 14.6 mm at the thickest.

It all weighs 1.33 kilograms, lighter than a MacBok Air.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Full Review of The Lenovo Yoga 730 13.3 inch 2 in 1 Notebook

By Tim

Tonight we have a video review of the Lenovo Yoga 13.3 Inch, 2 in 1 notebook. This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech.

The device has an excellent display, and performs very well except for battery life which isn’t terrible, but could be a bit better.

As tested it has:

  • 8th Generation Intel® Core i5-8250U Processor
  • 13.3″ FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS multi-touch anti-glare
  • 8 GB DDR4 2400MHz
  • 128GB Solid State Drive PCIe
  • 4 Cell Li-Polymer 48Wh
  • Camera 720p HD
  • Lenovo Wireless AC (2 x 2

So those are very decent specs considering the price point of $799. This certainty isn’t a budget device but it is a boatload less expensive than an HP or Dell.

So make sure to visit Andrew’s channel and subscribe! You might also be be interested in watching my review of Andrew as a reviewer at this link.
