Computex 2018: ASUS Unveils VivoBook S Laptops, All Colorful and Highly Portable

By Radu Iorga

ASUS brought the new hinge of the ZenBook S to the new VivoBook S lineup, shown at Computex 2018. However, these are more colorful laptops and also more compact ones, with high midrange specs.

ASUS VivoBook S laptops come in 14 inch or 15.6 inch screen versions and they’ve got the format and colors going for them. Firmament Green, Star Grey, Silver Blue, Gun Metal and Icicle Gold are the hues available here. Some of them have a textured woven finish around the keyboard, others bringing a brushed finish with diamond inspired motifs.

The screen adopts the NanoEdge approach, with very narrow bezels. There’s 16 GB of RAM, NVIDIA GPUs, Intel Core i7 CPUs and dual storage options, with SSD and HDD. There’s no pricing yet, but we do know that products come this month. One of the drawbacks I found here is the lack of an SD card reader, possibly axed for the sake of the waistline.

 

The 15.6 inch VivoBook S weighs 1.8 kilograms and the 14 incher S14 weighs 1.4 kilograms. On the connectivity front there’s USB Type-C and there are also 3 USB Type-A ports, plus a full size HDMI for some reason. At least there’s a microSD card slot.

They run Windows 10, we’ve also got Core i3 or Core i5 options and GeForce MX150 with 2 GB of memory in the mix.

Acer Debuts Chromebook Spin 15, Spin 13 Laptops With Rotating Screen

By Radu Iorga

Acer is on a roll this week, debuting a few Chromebooks and Predator devices. The former are the Chromebook Spin 15 and Spin 13 machines, with hybrid formats.

As any rotateable laptop goes, they can easily be turned into tablets. Acer Chromebook Spin 15 has a 15.6 inch screen, while the Chromebook Spin 13 has a 13.5 inch panel. The smaller has a Full HD resolution, while the biggie goes Full HD+. I can’t promise you’ll notice the difference, because you probably won’t.

Acer Spin 15 relies on a few choices of Intel CPUs, together with 4 GB or 8 GB of RAM, as well as 32 GB or 64 GB of storage. Spin 13 for example packs an Intel Core i3 8th gen chipset and an impressive top level of 16 GB RAM. There’s also 32 GB or 64 GB of storage, although 128 GB would have also made sense.

 

These are obviously Chrome OS laptops and since they’re new, they also have support for the Play Store and Android apps. Linux is also rumored to arrive at some point as an option. No price has been mentioned or leaked for the Spin 13, but the Spin 15 goes for $449.

It should be in stores this July.

Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is a New Intel Cannon Lake Laptop, Priced at $500

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo just debuted out of the blue a new laptop and it’s unique in the fact that it uses an Intel Cannon Lake 10 nm CPU. It’s called the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 and it’s already being listed in China at $500.

Interestingly, Intel is only expected to go all out with 10 nm processors in 2019, but some of its chips are already shipping right now. Lenovo took the lion’s share as shown by their latest laptop. The Lenovo IdeaPad 330 relies on 10 nm Cannon Lake architecture and Chinese retailer JD.com is already showing a listing for the product. It has a 15.6 inch display, AMD Radeon RX 540 graphics and an Intel Core i3-8121U processor.

The name Lenovo IdeaPad 330 is actually familiar, since a device under this moniker debuted in USA last week, but the US version ships with a 14 nm Kaby Lake CPU, either a Core i5 or Core i7. Don’t get too excited about the Cannon Lake, as this Core i3 seems like a lower end affair, particularly since it’s based on dual cores, not a quad core setup.

 

The resolution is also low on the Chinese laptop: 1366 x 768 pixels, 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB of HDD. Intel seems to be targetting the entry level area with this product. The JD.com listing offers upgrades of up to 8 GB of RAM, 1 TB of HDD and a 256 GB of SSD. The product weighs 2.1 kilograms and measures 22.7 mm in thickness. The keyboard has a full numeric pad and the laptop uses an Ethernet port, HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and a Type-c one.

Expect to see more devices of the sort at Computex 2018.

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 Coming With core i9 CPU, Solid NVIDIA Graphics

By Radu Iorga

ASUS is readying yet another laptop, this time one with a higher end CPU and improved graphics. It’s obviously part of the ZenBook series, although it could even fight a battle with some ROG models. Meet the ASUS ZenBook Pro 15, that packs up to a Core i9 CPU.

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 is a slim and light laptop, that comes with discrete graphics, plus an Intel Coffee Lake-H processor. We’ve also got an optional 4K display and everything is crammed within a 0.74 inch thick body and with a weight of 4.1 pounds. Versions are plenty, starting with a Core i5 current gen CPU, or a Core i7 hexa core unit, going up to a hexa core Core i9.

Screen options include a 15.6 inch 4K display (touchscreen) with 100% Adobe sRGB color gamut or a 15.6 inch Full HD touch or non touch display. Both screens have 178 degree viewing angles and the laptop features 7.3 mm bezels for the screen, equating to an 83% screen to body ratio. On the storage front there’s 256 GB or 512 GB of SATA III SSD or 512 GB/ 1 TB of PCIe SSD. Up to 8 GB and 16 GB of DDR4 RAM are here.

 

No matter what you choose, the graphics are GTX 1050, which is actually not bad. On the connectivity front, there’s two Thunderbolt 3/ USB Type-C ports and two regular USB Type-A ports, as well as HDMI and audio jack. A microSD card slot completes the list. This ZenBook’s keyboard is backlit and its touchpad is glass covered, so it’s a premium model for sure.

VGA webcam, Harman Kardon acoustics, WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as a 71 Wh sound damn good to me. Expect to hear more at Computex 2018 in June, as well as a price tag.
