ASUS E406MA Debuts Officially: 14 inch Fanless Laptop With Intel Gemini Lake Processor

By Radu Iorga

ASUS debuted a new laptop this week, the ASUS E406MA, which is an affordable machine with an Intel Gemini Lake CPU inside. It’s a 2.9 pound laptop that has a pretty generous 56 Wh battery that should offer up to 14 hours of battery life for web browsing.

The product has already been listed by a bunch of Canadian retailers, at around $399. That price tag applies in Canada for now, so it could be different in Europe or USA. The product packs a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, with a 14 inch diagonal. Inside the laptop there’s an Intel Pentium Silver N5000 CPU, 4 GB of DDR4 RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. The ASUS website also mentions other versions, including one with 2 GB of RAM and storage versions of 32 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB.

There’s also a choice of Windows 10 S or Windows 10 Home. Each of those models comes with a USB Type-A port of the 3.1 variety, plus a microSD card slot and webcam. The device has pretty slim bezels, considering the price segment. ASUS E406MA comes in gray, white and blue and it also offers fast charging, as the battery goes from zero to 60% in just 49 minutes.

This is basically a lighter and cheaper Vivobook of sorts, especially judging by the design.

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.

Computex 2018: ASUS Precog is Finally a Dual Screen Foldable Windows PC

By Radu Iorga

Computex 2018 is in full swing these days and with it come a few prototypes, concepts and innovative machines in general. Foldables are also part of the attraction off the Taipei show and ASUS came up with the Precog, finally a dual screen foldable Windows PC.

The name “Precog” is clearly a throwback to the “Minority Report” movie, as you probably figured out already. This is a dual screen laptop, that’s a flexible device, which can be used in multiple configurations. You can use it in a laptop mode, or what ASUS calls Stand Mode, but also a tent mode, a flat mode or a stood up mode, making it resemble a dual monitor PC setup.

That one is called “Book Mode” by ASUS. They aim to offer an adaptive input experience, going by the name of “Intelligent Touch”. That one will automatically recognize the input device you’re using and change the virtual UI according to it. It can also adjust the keyboard location depending on where you place your fingers, which I guess gets the “Precog” name going.

There’s also a stylus mode and support for both Cortana and Alexa. The product comes with an Intel Movidius Vision Processing Unit, so the PC will be able to see you and respond to your actions accordingly. If you move your hands, it acts in accordance for example. ASUS is going to release this product next year, so this is just a prototype. It seems like a Lenovo Yoga Book on steroids, if you ask me and it doesn’t have any specs yet.

ASUS ScreenPad is an Answer to Apple’s Touch Bar, May Come as a Laptop Accessory

By Radu Iorga

Many owners of laptops desired to have a dedicated touch bar on their devices, mimicking what Apple did with the special MacBook touch mechanism. Now ASUS is making up for that with the ScreenPad, that brings said Apple Touch Bar to the touch… pads.

This is a mysterious product, that leaked yesterday and we’re still not 100% sure what it is. What we know is that it’s called ScreenPad and it’s a mystery device or peripheral, that is meant to offer the same extended control as the new MacBook Touch Bars. However, that happens on a laptop touchpad instead of a special OLED touch bar. The leak came via Windows Blog Italia and we have more questions than answers right now.

It doesn’t make sense for a mere touchpad to control those options, so a special extra accessory may be involved. We could see something attached to a laptop, something embedded into one or a totally new laptop that actually has a touchscreen, a big one that replaces a touchpad. Some even say it may replace the keyboard alltogether, a move that has been associated with some Apple patents.

 

The ScreenPad app also has requirements associated: an ASUS notebook with a precision touchpad, an NVIDIA GTX 970 GPU and some special Toshiba chips. This means it may end up as an add on after all. The ScreenPad will work as a second screen for Windows 10 computers, but instead of a mere touch bar, it will come with a traditional Full HD display setup.

Examples shown in screenshots include playback controls, Spotify, app launchers and a calculator. Computex is just days away and we may see this device there.
