Lenovo Unveils Education Laptops, Priced Starting at $189

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo wasn’t content with unveiling a ton of new laptops and tablets at CES 2018, so they continue the launches. This time they’re bringing forth a series of laptops and convertibles aimed at the education market, schools and colleges. Prices start at $189 and of the core models of the series is the Lenovo 100e, pictured above.

The entry level unit Lenovo 100e packs an Intel Celeron N3350 Apollo Lake CPU, plus an 11.6 inch display and a battery that offers 10 hours of functioning. The device runs on Windows and it’s supposed to be some sort of rival for Chromebooks, especially judging by the specs. The other new Lenovo models are actually Chromebooks, so this is one of the few units with Windows 10.

Lenovo 300e brings forth an 11.6 inch convertible format and offers a 720p resolution. It has two configs: one with Chrome OS and one with Windows. The Windows model relies on an Intel Apollo Lake processor and also comes with a stylus and has 8 hours of battery life. The Chrome OS model has a MediaTek MT8173C processor and a battery good enough for 10 hours of functioning.

 

There’s no stylus here, in case you were wondering and the prices start at $279. An extra newcomer is an 11.6 inch convertible Chromebook, that comes with a pen, up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of storage. It also has a battery that offers up to 10 hours of functioning and an Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake chipset. This one is called Lenovo 500e. Lenovo also performed updates to the ThinkPad 11e and ThinkPad 11e Yoga models, with a new $429 laptop and a $499 convertible, that ship with Windows 10 and pen support.

All the new Chromebooks have been tested for ruggedness and come with spill resistant keyboards.

A Very Interesting 2 in 1: The Chuwi CoreBook 13.3 Inch Tablet/Notebook

By Tim

So Chuwi is getting the CoreBook device ready although it is still in prototype stage. They have made a few good choices so far such as upgrading to 8 GB ram and a 128 GB SSD.

Those updates are all well and good, but they need to learn to use the correct words when describing their future product. This device with have a Core-M 7Y30 processor, which is the best of the core M line as far as speed goes, but in their video they refer to it as the fastest Intel processor. Nope, not even close, good, but not a Core i5 or Core i7, not even close.

Yes, if you are part of the Indiegogo campaign you will end up with the 8 GB ram/128 GB SSD and the pen and keyboard. Well yippie, these should be included with every purchase at one cost! If you want to compete with Microsoft Surface devices and Apple, you damn well better offer all the pieces parts in one single package.

Lastly, a little door on the back of the tablet section in order to upgrade that SSD! They figured this out on the LapBook Air and the LapBook 12.3, so why the sudden loss of common sense?

The video is interesting and featured below and it is a few months old, but Chuwi needs to better understand the market and step up their game.

This could be a great 2 in 1 device, but if Chuwi half-asses it, they won’t sell too many!

Below is the video.

That is all for this evening,

Tim

CES 2018: Acer Switch 7 Black Edition Now Coming to the Stores, With GeForce MX150 Graphics

By Radu Iorga

Back in August last year Acer unveiled the Switch 7 Black Edition, which was a world premiere: the world’s first fanless 2 in 1 notebook with pretty solid graphics. The device has a sexy brushed aluminum body and it comes with an 8th gen Intel Core i7 CPU. Now it’s ready to hit the shelves this month.

On board we find the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics and the whole machine weighs less than 1.15 kilograms. Switch 7 Black Edition features a brand new kickstand mechanism, which Acer calls the AutoStand and it can be auto-deployed and auto-retracted, making the single handed operation easier, just by adjusting the display like on a clamshell notebook.

Specs include a 13.5 inch IPS display with a 2256 x 1504 pixel resolution, with support for Windows Ink and Wacom EMR technology. The Acer Pen offers 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and there’s also tilt support to control the angle, width and stroke shading. You don’t even need to charge the brand new Acer Pen. Windows Hello authentication is also here, with a nifty optical under glass fingerprint scanner with POA (Power on Authentication).

 

The device sells in USA this month with a price starting at $1699. 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB of SSD storage are also thrown in for good measure. Connectivity includes WiFi ac 2X2 MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0, USB Type-C Gen 2, Thunderbolt 3 and Displayport.

Samsung’s Future Detachable Chromebook Could Come With Stylus, Silo

By Radu Iorga

We already knew that Samsung was preparing a new Chromebook, but details were quite scarce. What’s sure is that it was going to be a 2 in 1 machine and today we learn that it’s about to come with a silo and stylus. More info below.

Samsung’s next gen Chromebook is going to be both tablet and laptop, with a detachable keyboard. The info comes from the Chromium repository, judging by the latest entries, that hint at the presence of a stylus. Last month we saw references to a device codenamed “Nautilus”, popping up in the Repository. The hints suggest a “tablet mode” and a “base” piece, which it can hook up to.

The device is obviously a touchscreen-based one, with Chrome OS and Play Store support, plus Google Assistant, probably. The stylus is also mentioned in the code through the “PEN_EJECT” feature. A storage area for it will be included on the device, something like a silo. Samsung already had a pen on the Chromebook Plus and Pro models and Google also offered one on the PixelBook.

That one ran on batteries, but Samsung’s probably won’t. CES 2018 could bring us this new Chromebook, perhaps even with one of those rumored Snapdragon 845 CPUs.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 i5 Review

By Tim

Today’s video worth sharing gives us a full review of the Microsoft Surface Pro (2017 version) and comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews. This is a premium 2 in 1 device and if you are willing to spend the cash, a very good device.

It does have its downsides such as the keyboard and pen costing extra and boosting the price to well over $1000 bucks, but on the other hand it sports a fantastic display and excellent performance and battery life.

Like all “premium” type devices you will be paying too much in my opinion, but, if you need some kick-ass performance this one can get it done! This one is definitely for business users who can right off the price as an expense.

Now all that being said, let us get right to the video so you folks can make your own decision!

That is all for now,

Tim
