CES 2018: Dell XPS 15 (2018) Convertible Goes Live With Intel Kaby Lake-G Processor

By Radu Iorga

We knew something was missing from CES 2018, after all those Lenovo launches… That’s right, the Dell launches were hot on their trail. Dell brought to Las Vegas a few new laptops, plus the Dell XPS 15 (2018) convertible, which we detailed below. This device opts for an Intel Kaby Lake-G processor and AMD Radeon Vega graphics.

The Dell XPS 15 is a 15 inch 2 in 1 laptop. It’s got a 15.6 inch touchscreen actually and a 360 degree hinge in the mix. It plays nicely with the Dell Active Pen and provides an 8th gen Intel Core processor, plus Radeon RX Vega M graphics with 4 GB memory. The device will be available this Spring, starting at $1300. Configs start with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and go as high as 32 GB, which certainly makes this sound like a gaming machine.

The CPU choice also includes an Intel Core i5 8th gen and storage goes from 128 GB of non PCIe and 1 TB of SSD. It all comes in at just 16 mm thickness and the case is made of a combo between aluminum and carbon fiber. The screen has a pretty impressive resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels. Gorilla Glass 4 protection and 100% Adobe RGB spectrum are also here.

 

I could say that Dell leaked some Alienware drops in this skinny baby. It all runs on Windows 10 and comes with a 75 Wh battery, good enough for 15 hours of functioning. Miracast, Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi ac with optional vPro functionality are all here. Dell XPS 15 (2018) has a magnetic maglev keyboard and it’s compatible with the latest Dell Premium Active Pen.

By Radu Iorga

Huawei doesn’t stop churning new products even on Christmas, as they’ve just announced a new version of the Matebook D notebook. It’s the Huawei Matebook D (2018), a laptop that brings a new generation of GPU and more goodies, detailed below.

Huawei Matebook D (2018) keeps the same design as the 2018 model and it has a waistline of just 16.9 mm. Plus, it packs a 15.6 inch Full HD screen, that offers 250 nits of brightness and 83% screen to body ratio. The novelty is the change in CPU and GPU. Now we get the Intel 8th Generation Core i5-8250U processor and the Nvidia MX150 graphics, which is an upgrade from the predecessor’s Nvidia 940MX.

The CPU + RAM and storage CPU goes as follows:

  • i5-8250U / 8GB memory / 256GB SSD / MX150 graphics card 5188 yuan ($790)
  • i5-8250U / 8G memory / 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD / MX150 graphics card 5488 yuan ($840)
  • i7-8550U / 8G memory / 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD / MX150 graphics 6688 yuan ($1020)

Huawei Matebook D (2018) also offers a 43.3 Wh battery, which promises up to 10 hours of battery life and 8.5 hours of video playback. Acoustics are top notch thanks to Dolby panoramic speakers and we’ve also got two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 and a HDMI port, plus a dual antenna design for WiFi. The product is only on sale in China right now.

Xiaomi Notebook Pro 15.6 inch Laptop Now Up For Preorder, We Have A Coupon for It

By Radu Iorga

The Xiaomi Notebook Pro 15.6 inch laptop has just been made available for preorder and we already have a coupon for it. You can find the device on Banggood.com for $1099.99 and it’ll be delivered from November 20.

Using the coupon code “447ec1” you’ll drop the price by $209, making the device more affordable. The notebook features a fingerprint scanner and relies on the pretty famous Intel Core i5-8250U quad core processor, priced at up to 3.4 GHz. On the graphics side, there’s the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2 GB of memory. Other specs include 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage.

Another plus is the full size backlit keyboard and the device is quite solid, courtesy of a magnesium alloy chassis. I have to admit that I’m surprised Xiaomi managed to get on the market an Intel 8th gen CPU device so soon, even before some other device makers. Clocked at 3.4 GHz and apparently offering a 40% bump in performance from the previous generation, the CPU should be quite powerful, especially for multitasking, graphics rendering and more.

The 15.6 inch Full HD screen has ultra narrow bezels and a large viewing angle. Its border is just 6.52 mm narrow and we’ve also got Gorilla Glass 3 protection in the mix. The keys are well spaced and the fingerprint scanned is embedded within the touchpad area. Connectivity is generous, with a 3 in 1 SD card reader, USB Type-C, HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports and an audio jack.

Finally, there’s a 60 Wh battery inside, with the promise of 7-8 hours of standby time. All of these can be yours for $1099 on Banggood.com.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro Becomes Official, Feels Like a MacBook Pro Rival

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi’s big event blowout happened today and the company debuted not only two new smartphones, but also a laptop, the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro. This machine can be dubbed a MacBook Pro rival, but also at 50% its price tag.

This is also a follow-up to the last year model Mi Notebook Air, with a fresher approach. Xiaomi Mi Notebook has some solid specs, like a 15.6 inch screen with ultra narrow bezels. Inside there’s an Intel Core i7 processor, as well as up to 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB of SSD storage and the brand new Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics chip. This is more powerful than integrated Intel graphics, believe me.

On the connectivity front there’s USB Type-C, two full USB ports, a 3 in 1 card reader and a full size HDMI port. For authentication we have a fingerprint scanner build into the trackpad. Priced at $980, this feels much cheaper than the $1999 MacBook Pro. Interestingly, those who already got to play with this device claim that its trackpad is actually capable, feeling similar to the Apple Force Touch designs and also better than most Windows laptops.

 

The screen is said to be a bit glossy and the resolution is just Full HD, maybe less than one would expect on a sort of 2017 flagship. By the way keep an eye on the special technology on board: Harman Infinity, Dolby Atmos, 2 antenna AC WiFi, 60 Wh battery, Gorilla Glass and a lightweight adapter. All of that in a 1.95 kilogram heavy package.

The full name of the product is actually Acer Chromebook 15 (CB15-1H/HT) and it keeps the 15.6 inch Full HD screen of the predecessor, but this time it measures 0.7 inches in thickness and weighs just 3.8 pounds, thus dropping a pound from its predecessor. The CPU choice includes a dual core Intel Celeron N3350 or quad core N3450, but there’s also a Pentium N4200 Apollo Lake version.

Acer also provides here models with 4 or 8 GB of RAM, as well as 32 or 64 GB of storage. A backlit keyboard is in the mix as well and speakers have been integrated on either side of the machine. A HD webcam with 88 degree field of view also makes the cut. Google Play Store comes preinstalled and the laptop brings on modern connectivity like USB Type-C, WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.2, two USB 3.0 ports and a HDMI port, as well as an audio jack and SD card reader.

Touch and non touch versions of the product have been promised.
