Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe Notebook Review

By Tim

The Asus ZenBook 3 Deluxe is a very premium device that comes with a rather premium price tag, but also with enough ports to be a functionally useful laptop/notebook.

The biggest negative on this device is the price tag since we are looking at a $1699 hit if you were to purchase one. But for some folks the quality and specs might just be worth the amount spent.

Below you will find the video from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews.

If this notebook sounds like it is right for you  it can be found at Amazon.com.

That is all I have for now,

Tim

Lenovo Tab 4 Now Up for Sale on Amazon, Priced at $128 for 8 Inch version and $179 for 10.1 Inch Model

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo Tab 4 is a fresh series of tablets that was unveiled earlier this year, at MWC 2017. Now it’s being made available for sale on Amazon and Newegg, in an 8 inch and 10 inch version. Both models can be preordered online on Amazon, priced at $128 and $179 respectively.

These two devices share the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, as well as the microSD card slot. They also ship with Android 7.1 straight out of the box. In spite of the different diagonal (8 inch and 10.1 inch), they offer the same 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and pack 2 MP front cameras, as well as 5 MP back shooters.

Amazon promises to ship the products within 2 to 5 weeks. The 10 inch Lenovo Tab 4 proposes “theater-like multimedia”, according to the device’s maker, especially thanks to the Dolby Atmos acoustics on board, delivered via dual stereo front facing speakers. The device can be turned into a kids’ tablet with the Lenovo Kid’s Pack, which includes a shock resistant bumper, blue light filter and stickers.

 

The 8 inch model gets the same treatment and weighs a reasonable 1.1 pounds. It also gets dual front facing stereo speakers and is promoted for binge watching. By the way you can also add a keyboard to the 10 incher, as shown below.

We Are Nearly 11 Months Into Using The HiBook As a Server And It is Still Great! :HiBook News Edition, Oh Hell 30?

By Tim

So after almost 11 months of testing I have reached several conclusions on the Chuwi HiBook tablet. They are exactly what one would expect from a pretty damned great, better specs tablet these days and that is, if you want a great  10 inch class, Dual Boot, tablet, buy one of these!

I am uncertain if you can find the original HiBook like this one but the Pro is better has a better display and a larger battery. The 10.1 inch screen on the original version is bright and to be frank, quite stunning when watch movies! It has it glitches here and there, but over all it is an incredible buy if you can find one on a flash sale at either Gearbest or Banggood.

The battery life is good and it can easily function as a notebook if you get the add on keyboard or use a Bluetooth keyboard available almost anywhere. I do like the K480 Logitech,  but there are a lot of decent Bluetooth keyboards available these days. Grab yourself an OTG adapter and you can use any wireless mouse out there.

No it isn’t a gaming machine, although N.O.V.A 3 does work well in Android. But if you are buying a 10 inch tablet for gaming I personally think you need to get a life.

The HiBook is certainly not as nice as the Hi12, but it is lighter, the ram runs faster, (BIOS tweak), and it doesn’t have nearly as many glitches as the Chuwi Hi12 that I am typing this article on. The HiBook has a USB C port the Hi12 doesn’t. On the flip side the Hi12 has  2 full size USB ports, 1 x 2.0 the other 1 x 3.0.  I am not entirely thrilled with USB C because it means if you have some older devices to connect you need to have an adapter.

The bottom line is that I am totally happy with both of the tablets we have here for testing and  including any adapters  and the super fast ComFast WiFi dual-band adapter I purchased, I am still about  $500-700 dollars below the cost of a single MicroCrap or Apple product, and yeah Samsung also!

That is all for now,

Tim

Windows 10 Source Code Leaked, 32 TB of Win 10 Beta Builds Dumped

By Radu Iorga

A major leak has happened over at Microsoft over the past days, with the Windows 10 source code leaking online this week. Files that have to do with Microsoft’s USB, storage and WiFi drivers are now out and sources claim that 32 TB of Windows 10 beta builds have popped up online.

Such files have been posted to Beta Archive, an enthusiast site, that tracks Windows releases that accepts contributions from members. They offer in exchange a free private FTP filled with Windows builds. The 32 TB include unreleased builds, source code for driver stack and more. Even the development version of Redstone 2 has been included, or as you know it, Creators Update.

Some of the builds are meant for 64 bit ARM chips and some include private debug symbols. A “Windows 10 Mobile Adaptation Kit” has also been leaked, the one used to assemble system images for Windows on smartphones. We don’t know the source of the leaks, but it appears to come from Microsoft’s own systems. There are severe consequences to this as the publication of Windows source code may lead to hacks and attacks in the future.

In the meantime BetaArchive claims it has deleted the Share Source Kit from its server and also says that the beta builds come from a variety of sources, not just one leak. The source code alone was 1.2 GB in size and has been removed. In possibly related news, two men were just arrested in the UK after they were found trying to hack Microsoft’s network.

Both men have been collecting confidential Windows 10 builds.

ASUS ZenPad Z8 2017 Tablet Gets Leaked by Evan Blass, Headed for Verizon

By Radu Iorga

There’s a new sexy looking ASUS tablet in town, freshly leaked by Evan Blass in the render below. The device is named ASUS ZenPad Z8 2017 and it’s headed to Verizon, as have quite a few ASUS slates before it. Let’s see what we know so far.

We seem to be dealing with a pretty wide machine, with a premium design and maybe even drawing some inspiration from the ZenPhone series. We can’t even guarantee that the name will be kept. This is actually a familiar face, since the ZenPad Z8 was introduced at Computex last month (as ZenPad 3S 8.0), but there are chances Verizon may get a version with slightly modified specs.

The device announced last month had a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 CPU, 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage. It’s got an 8 inch 2048 x 1536 pixel display and Android 7.1 Nougat as the OS. Verizon may not have the exclusive here and we may see other carriers or retailers selling the product. Nothing has been confirmed yet of course.

Mind the naming here, as the ZenPad Z8 2017 could in fact be one and the same with the ZenPad 3S 8.0. It should have a 13 MP back camera and a 5 MP selfie shooter. Expect a price above $300, but below $400.
