Microsoft Surface Book 2 Available Right Now, Price Starts at $1499

By Radu Iorga

While everybody is gearing up for Black Friday, companies are pumping out last minute launches and making products available. One of the high profile debuts is the one of the Microsoft Surface Book 2, that just became available for $1499 and up.

It’s been two years since the 2015 Surface Book, so it was high time for an update. Just like the original model, the newcomer is a premium laptop that has a detachable screen. It’s both a tablet and a notebook, but of course with higher end specs. You can also pick two diagonal sizes now. The basic model is a 13.5 incher with a generous 3000 x 2000 pixel resolution, plus it also uses an Intel Core i5-7300U dual core CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage.

Of course specs go higher than that, to a Core i7-8650U CPU, 8 or 16 GB of RAM and with an NVIDIA GTX 1050 card in the mix. 256 GB, 512 GB or 1 TB of storage are all here. The 512 GB Core i7 one goes for $2499 and the 1 TB model is $2999. If you want something bigger, there’s also a 15 inch Surface Book 2, with a 3240 x 2160 pixel resolution and it offers a GTX 1060 card, plus up to 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage.

 

It starts at $2499 and tops at $3299. The smaller unit weighs 3.4 pounds and the bigger model 4.2 pounds. Backlit keyboards are bundled and just so you know, the Surface Pen, Dial and other accessories are sold separately. The hinge mechanism is now stronger than on the first gen model and the metal case is smooth and well built. You can buy the Surface Book 2 here.

Chuwi CoreBook Goes Live on Indiegogo, as A Crowdfunded 2 in 1 Device

By Radu Iorga

Chuwi is back to crowdfunding with the Chuwi CoreBook 2 in 1 device. Promoted as a sort of iPad Pro rival, in concept and looks, the machine is powered by an Intel Core m3 CPU. This is not Chuwi’s first crowdfunding, as they also had a lot of backing with the SurBook, raising over $1 million.

Back to the Indiegogo newcomer, the CoreBook is a potent 2 in 1 machine with Intel HD Graphics 615 and the promise of 4K video and 3D games. Inside we find 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, 128 GB of eMMC 5.1 storage and 13.3 inch Full HD touchscreen is also in the mix. This display uses an OGS fully laminated panel, that offers sharper contrast, as well as more natural colors.

There’s a 2.5D glass panel upfront to make things even more beautiful. As far as ergonomics go, this is a very comfy machine, that sits quite well in the hand. Upfront we find a fingerprint scanner, ready to unlock the device with a single touch. CoreBook also has a full USB Type-C 3.0 port, used for charging and more. Inside the device we find a 37 Wh high density battery, that is supposed to offer up to 8 hours of average use.

A quick charger of 12V and 3A will take it up to 100% in about 3 hours. This 2 in 1 uses a hinged wide angle keyboard, making it a sort of laptop. It also lets one perform a free adjustment of the device, between zero and 165 degrees. We’ve got 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity for the display, working in tandem with an active stylus. There’s palm blocking technology and writing at less than 30 degree angles.

The OS is Windows 10 and the pricing of the CoreBook is $459 in the early bird system, with 23% discount. The whole pack, with keyboard goes to $499 after 26% off. Backers are expected here for the promotions. A super early bird price will be emailed to the subscribers to the website, with only 50 CoreBook units ready and 250 units of the whole set.

Google Pixel C Tablet Gets Huge Price Cut in Europe, Drops Below $400

By Radu Iorga

We’re in the time frame when the early Black Friday deals usually commence, so don’t be surprised if there’s the odd early offer here and there. For example in UK we’ve found out that the Google Pixel C tablet got a huge price cut, even dropping below $400.

The device is now selling for as low as $391, which is crazy considering it’s $599 in USA. It’s amazing how this tablet that its around 2 years old costs so much, but the brits seem to have figured it out. Still, the specs are pretty respectable even nowadays, including a Tegra X1 chipset and 3 GB of RAM, as well as 32 GB of storage (the discounted model has 64 GB). The above mentioned deal is all the most impressive if you consider that originally the device was priced at $630 in UK.

I should also point out that in most regions the product isn’t in stock anymore, so Google may be prepared for an all out price drop to clear out the remaining stock units. The keyboard’s price has also dropped to around $100 or so. Google Pixel C is a 10.2 inch tablet launched back in December 2015, with a 2560 x 1800 pixel resolution, a 9240 mAh battery and an 8 megapixel main camera.

It has stereo speakers, no microSD card slot, but you can get it with 32 or 64 GB of storage. It runs on Android 6.0.1, which goes all the way to Android 8.0 Oreo, so it probably has it already. These offers only apply to the UK Google Store and now people have started spotting the machine on offer in Germany, France, Ireland and more.

Lenovo Miix 520 2 in 1 tablet Now Up for Sale, With Intel 8th Gen CPU in Tow

By Radu Iorga

On the very first day of September we saw Lenovo announcing a bunch of new Yoga devices, including tablets, convertibles and laptops. Now one of them has come to life, the Lenovo Miix 520 2 in 1 slate, which is up for sale right now.

The 12.2 incher has a Full HD display and more things going for it: detachable keyboard, support for pen input and it inaugurates the 8th Intel Core Kaby Lake-R CPU. Orders are available in USA and China, with Amazon selling a product like this for a $1018 price tag. That version brings you an Intel Core i7-8550U quad core CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of PCIe storage (SSD).

Of course there should also be cheaper versions, like the Core i5 one one on JD, at $900, available in China. The product is bundled with its keyboard and pen, at least in the States, but we can’t guarantee that will happen all over the world. Weighing around 2 pounds, this machine is also 0.4 inches thick and comes with an 8 megapixel main camera, 5 MP front cam and USB Type-C port, as well as a backlit keyboard with a 1.5 mm key travel and WiFi 802.11 ac.

There’s Bluetooth 4.1 and USB 3.0 here and I’ve heard there should also be a 1 TB storage version out there. The kickstand at the back makes me think of the surface Pro and the whole machine plays nicely with a Lenovo Active Pen 2. The battery life was rated at around 7.5 hours when the product debuted, which is not bad at all.

By Radu Iorga

Although it’s been a while since Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Book devices, it’s only now that they’re entering the Japanese market. I’m talking about the Galaxy Book 10.6 incher and Galaxy Book 12 incher here, which should be available with Windows 10 on board come mid November.

These are actually the first Windows-based tablets from Samsung to be released in Japan. The Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 will be available for corporate customers, via Sinex Infotech and Daiwabo Information System, while Galaxy Book 12.0 will only be sold via Costco. Both models can be used as a slate or as laptop PC with styli in the mix. Samsung bundles an S-Pen with each of these devices and it can be used to jot down handwritten notes or draw.

There’s also a function called Samsung Flow, which lets you connect the slates with a Galaxy smartphone. Users will also be able to log into a PC using the phone’s iris scanner and fingerprint scanner. The Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 packs an Intel Core m3 processor of the seventh generation, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, while the OS of choice is Windows 10 Pro.

 

The screen is a 10.6 incher with a TFT LCD panel and a Full HD resolution. It also has a 5 megapixel front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1,GPS and Glonass. USB Type-C connectivity is also in the mix and a 30.4 W battery takes care of the daily needs. The bigger model packs an Intel Core i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of eMMC storage. It opts for Windows 10 Home and uses a 12 inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ display, as well as a 13 megapixel main camera and a front 5 MP shooter.

This one has a 30.4 W battery and weighs about 754 grams. No prices have been announced yet.
