ASUS NovaGO Windows 10 on ARM Laptop Gets European Prices and Launch Date

By Radu Iorga

ASUS NovaGO was part of the initial wave of Windows 10 on ARM devices, with the promise of crazy battery lives, of up to 20 hours. Now that the device was launched in parts of the world, people started wondering when it was going to come to Europe. Today we have the answer… and prices.

Back at the Qualcomm Snapdragon Summit in December 2017 this product came to life together with the HP Envy x2. It wasn’t ready to hit the stores back then, on account of its lack of Windows 10 Redstone 4, which was not yet ready for release. Also, not all Connected PC features were ready, as some were targeted at Spring 2018, with the update. Now we learn that ASUS has finally confirmed the release date and price for the ASUS NovaGO, which will arrive in April 2018 in Germany.

The price is going to be 699 euros, which translates to $857. The specs we know have stayed the same, including the high power Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB of SSD storage and LTE gigabit speed. The 22 hours of battery life promise is still here, plus Digital Ink support and Windows Hello login. Full emulation of Win32 programs is in the mix as well.

In the future such machines will also get 5G, as soon as the required chipsets are in.

Huawei, Asus embrace the smartphone notch

By Matt Burns

The notch is here to stay. Two upcoming phones are reported to sport the awful, disgusting notch at the top of the screen. Huawei and Asus are following Apple and Essential down the notch hole. Neither of these phones are confirmed or officially announced yet. Both the Huawei and Asus models appeared online ahead of their official unveiling. They sport, among with what I assume are top-tier… Read More

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Review of the Asus Zenbook 13, UX331UN

By Tim

This video covers the Asus Zenbok 13  (UX331UN) and  it is a fairly nice notebook with a few minor drawbacks. This comes to us from Andrew at AMDTech and is well done as usual.

The basic specs are as follows:

  • Screen Size 13.3 inches Max Screen Resolution 1920×1080 pixels
  • Processor 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5 RAM 8 GB LPDDR3 Hard Drive
  • 256 GB Flash Memory Solid State Graphics Coprocessor
  • GeForce MX150 Chipset Brand nvidia Card Description
  • Dedicated Graphics Card Ram Size 2 GB Wireless Type 802.11
  • A/C, 802.11AC Number of USB 3.0 Ports 3

This is a very premium device and the Dedicated NVidia GPU certainly is a selling point!

So I am not going to ramble on any further, I will let you get all the details from the video below.

As usual, make sure to subscribe to Andrew’s channel if you are into this type of tech.

That is all for now,

Tim

By Peter Bright

Always Connected Windows 10 PCs that use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 ARM processors will work on all four major US networks, the chip company has announced today, with T-Mobile and AT&T joining the previously announced Sprint and Verizon.

In total, 14 different network operators across 10 countries have pledged to support the new generation of ARM-powered Windows 10 laptops and tablets. Qualcomm adds that some of those network operators will also be selling the systems, though it has not specified which will be doing so.

Initially, three systems will be available. HP’s Envy x2 is a tablet with detachable keyboard, as is Lenovo’s Miix 630. Asus’ NovaGo, in contrast, is a clamshell laptop with a 360-degree hinge to enable tablet-like operation.

CES 2018: ASUS X507 Laptop Offers Core i7 Action, GeForce MX110 in Under 1.7 Kilos

By James A.

Aside from convertibles and ZenBooks, ASUS brought a full fledged laptop to CES 2018. We’re talking about the ASUS X507, which is pictured below and while it’s reasonably powerful, it’s closer to the high midrange spectrum.

It does make use of an Intel Core i7 CPU, but it’s a 7th gen Core i7, not the latest 8th gen one. The device weighs just 1.68 kilograms and relies on NVIDIA GeForce MX110 graphics, plus dual storage. The screen is a NanoEdge Full HD one, with very narrow bezel for a more immersive experience. Windows 10 is preinstalled and Cortana is also part of the package.

ASUS X507 is a 15.7 inch device for work and leisure, or better said for daily computing endeavors. We don’t have a price, but we do have a time frame for the launch: the first half of the year. ASUS X507 may end up with a more budget price than you expect, particularly since there’s also a Core i5 version of it and it comes with up to 8 GB of RAM not 16 GB. There’s up to 1 TB of SATA storage, or 256 GB of SSD.

Connectivity includes two USB-A 2.0 ports, one USB-A 3.0 and one USB Type-C 3.0, as well as one full size HDMI. Wireless connectivity is ensured by 2X2 MU-MIMO WiFi ac and Bluetooth 4.2.
