CES 2018: HP Envy x2 Debuts in 2018 Version, With Core-Y CPU, LTE

By Radu Iorga

HP just upgraded its Envy x2 laptop with a 2018 version, that was unveiled in Las Vegas over the last hours. The new HP Envy x2 from CES 2018 relies on an Intel Core-Y processor and also has LTE in the mix. It feels like a Surface rival and also a Windows on ARM rival.

The new x2 has an Intel 7th generation Y series processor inside and runs on Windows 10 Home. The power of the Intel-Y chipset has been raised to 6W from 4.5W, which means we get a performance bump too. Benchmarks are confirming it, with a 17% increase in 3DMark 11 and 20% in PCMark 8. HP Envy x2 with Y Series CPU is a derived version of the earlier model with Snapdragon CPU.

The new device has a promised battery life of around 15 hours. It also comes with HP Fast Charge technology, able to juice up the laptop to 90% in 90 minutes. WiFi and LTE are here, plus a detachable keyboard with 3 modes of use: laptop, reading and tablet. The chassis of the product is made from CNC aluminum and the design is of the fanless variety. Gorilla Glass 4 is also here and the screen is a 12.3 incher with Full HD res.

 

It all measures 7.9 mm in thickness and weighs 1.65 lbs. Other specs include up to 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage, a 5 MP WDR front camera and a main 13 MP WDR support. Dual Bang & Olufen speakers are also included. The kickstand/keyboard mechanism feels a lot like the Surface Pro one. No info about pricing, but the debut time frame is this Spring.

Chuwi LapBook 12.3 Gets Price Cut, With a Coupon Code

By Radu Iorga

If you’re looking for a Quad HD screen laptop that doesn’t break the bank or the piggy bank, this may just be the product for you. Chuwi’s LapBook 12.3 is a device we’ve written about before, but never at such a good price. It goes for $299 usually, but we have a discount coupon for you below.

By using the coupon code “chuwi5off” on Banggood.com you can get the price down to just $289.74. The device offers a 12.3 inch IPS display with a generous resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels. It relies on an Intel Celeron N3450 quad core processor, clocked at 1.1 GHz, but going as high as 2.2 GHz. It’s also a good piece of news that the device runs on Windows 10 Home and that’s preinstalled.

Another impressive aspect is the quantity of RAM: 6 GB in this case, plus 64 GB of eMMC storage. There’s Bluetooth 4.0 here, a 0.3 MP front camera for chats with friends and HDMI output. Intel Gen 9 HD Graphics will take care of the graphical aspect and you can add an extra SSD extension. The build is surprisingly solid, since it combines magnesium and aluminum in an unibody setup.

On the input front, we’ve got a 145 degree rotating keyboard with a full size touchpad. Chuwi LapBook weighs 1.4 kilograms and measures 8 mm in thickness, plus it has 1.5 mm key travel. Dual channel speaker will also aid with acoustics. Oh and I forgot the battery! It’s an 8000 mAh unit, ready for 7-8 hours of standby time. You can get the device here.

Eve V Crowfunded Tablet Gets Delayed, Promised a Screen Upgrade to Make Up for It

By Radu Iorga

We’ve written about the Eve V a bunch of times, as it’s a promising project, that seemed to offer a pretty solid alternative to the Surface Pro tablet. Sadly, as it sometimes happens to crowdfunded projects, delay has struck the Eve V, but there’s a silver lining in the mix.

That silver lining is the fact that we’ll be getting a screen upgrade as a result. This is not only a crowdfunded product, but also crowd surveyed, so the maker of the device has been asking people which should be the features included. Eve Tech meant the slate to be shipped earlier this year and it didn’t meet the date it promised. It’s also true that finished prototypes have been shown to journalists recently and the product also reached the FCC in June, so things are in motion.

The main problem remains with getting screens for the tablet, which if I remember correctly also plagued projects like Jolla. The first batch of screens that Eve got wasn’t up to their requirements, so that’s when things went slow. The supplier couldn’t provide new panels in time, so Eve turned to the crowdfunders and asked them what to do.

An option was to still wait for the supplier and another was to ask for the money back and buy a different screen. This one also brings a screen resolution bump, so instead of a 2736 x 1824 pixel panel, we’ll get a 2880 x 1920 pixel one. Eve could use a 12.3 incher from Sharp for extra screen efficiency. Another option is a 12 inch panel from AUO, with lower power usage as well.

1.4 million dollars have been contributed on Indiegogo, so funds should be sufficient to make this device happen.

Chuwi Surbook Surface Pro Rival Gets Handled in Front of Camera (Video)

By Radu Iorga

We’ve known about the Chuwi Surbook device for a while now, as a pretty nifty Surface Pro rival, that comes on a more budget offering and it was available on a crowdfunding platform. Today, after so many renders we get to see the real device, getting handled in front of the camera.

It all happens in the video below, showing the device in action with a variety of tasks. Chuwi is getting ready to finalize its crowdfunding campaign for the product. The demo shows Office work on the machine and comfy typing on its keyboard, as the slate is propped on a kickstand. We also see some video watching, stylus input and gaming in Asphalt 8.

This budget Surface replacement has a 13.3 12.3 inch screen with a 2736 x 1824 pixel resolution, that works with a bundled pen, offering 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity. One of the less appealing parts of the device is the CPU, an Intel Celeron N3450 in this case, which is far from the Core i5 or i7 action of the Surface models. At least we get 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.

Chuwi SurBook can still be found on Indiegogo, with prices starting from $299 and going to $399, depending on what you choose. The product’s goal has already been met on the platform, so it’s no doubt that it will be happening. There’s a 10.000 mAh battery inside, Windows 10 as the OS and the all metal body design isn’t bad looking at all. Interestingly, the official page of the device also features a comparison with the iPad Pro and Surface Pro 4, highlighting the pluses of the new product.
