Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) Carefully Details Special Features, in New Video

By Radu Iorga

Samsung Notebook 7 Spin (2018) was unveiled earlier this year at CES 2018, but you may have been left wanting more details about this rotatable machine. Samsung reveals extra tidbits in the video below, so let’s check it out.

The fresh clip details some of the device’s features, like the 10 point multi touch, side fingerprint scanner and more. This midrange notebook comes with Windows Hello, a 360 degree spin hinge and a generous battery. It’s shown interacting with a stylus and putting to work its 8th gen Intel quad core CPU. Windows Ink is also supported and the format looks rather versatile. I know you’ve been wondering, but here it is: yes, the keyboard is backlit.

This is a 13.3 inch laptop with a Full HD resolution, a multi touch display and it lets you use the trackpad or just a finger for interaction. The extended battery life comes courtesy of a 43 Wh battery, in tandem with a CPU that has great power management. Samsung also shows its new program called Studio Plus, which is basically a rival for Apple’s iMovie, meant for video editing and movie creation.

Security Folder is also available, as an extra security feature for the laptop. Expect its debut in Q1 2018, priced close to $800 like the predecessor, but that’s my own estimate, so don’t bet on it.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Another Unboxing And First Impressions of the Teclast F6 Pro

By Tim

Just a day or so ago I posted a video from Andrew on this convertible notebook and he was quite positive in his initial impressions. This one comes to us from Chris over at TechTablets and is also quite positive.

This one so far is a pretty nice convertible at a relatively decent price. Currently only $499 on Gearbest.

The basics are as follows:

  • Intel Core M3-7Y30 processor
  • 13.3 inch FHD Touch Panel
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 128 GB SSD (upgradeable)
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • 360 degree rotating display

This of course ins’t really intended to be used as a tablet all that often due to its weight, but being able to set it up in presentation mode it could be a nice video consumption machine.

So let us get right to that video.

This product is currently on a flash sale at Gearbest, so keep an eye on those prices, but I don’t see it getting much cheaper than the current $499.

That is all for now,

Tim

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Teclast F6 Convertible, Unboxing And First Impressions

By Tim

Teclast has stepped up their game a bit with the new F6 Pro convertible notebook. It costs quite a bit less than the high end stuff such as the Lenovo Yoga or HP X360 types and it has decent, although not stellar specs.

This one is courtesy of Andrew over at AMDTech and gives us the initial impressions and of course that whole unbox thing.

The very first thing you may notice in the video is that Teclast has put on the SSD upgrade hatch on the bottom of the device. That is a very positive sign that the Chinese manufacturers are finally catching on to the fact that eMMC storage just ain’t hacking it when trying to compete with the big boys.

The fact it has a Core M3 -7Y30 processor also makes this a much faster and more premium convertible than you would expect at this price.

The product does sport a 13.3 inch, non-laminated, IPS touch panel, but still looks good for indoor use.

We will have to wait for a full review for all the details but in the meantime we get a hands on look and some testing right here, right now. See below…

This product is available on Gearbest for $596 currently, but as always check that link for flash sales.

That is all for this morning,

Tim

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.

CES 2018: Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018 Has Rotatable Screen, Rugged body

By Radu Iorga

Even though Lenovo launched a ton of stuff at CES 2018, we were actually worried there weren’t going to be any new Yoga models. Worries have been lifted, as the Chinese outfit has unveiled the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018 today, with a rotatable screen and digitizer pen.

This is basically a relative of the X1 Carbon, which by the way also got an upgrade at CES. It’s a multi mode machine, that’s a bit beefier than we’re used to, but still powerful and useful for people on the go. The X1 Yoga offers some extras which the X1 Carbon doesn’t have, like the 360 degree rotating touchscreen, far field audio microphones and integrated digitizer pen.

The design of the newcomer is pretty similar to the one of the 2017 model, with minor tweaks here and there. The overall look and feel stays the same though. The exterior of the tablet is covered with a special type of “soft paint”, which improves grip and abrasion resistance. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2018 can be set up in “Stand” mode, which means it’ll rest on the keyboard and bring the screen closer to the eyes. There’s also tent mode and laptop mode, plus tablet mode.

 

Specs include a 14 inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a 2660 x 1440 pixel resolution and interestingly, this panel is certified for Dolby Vision HDR playback. There are 4 USB ports here, two Thunderbolt 3 Type-C ones and two USB 3.0 ones, plus a multi card reader, full size HDMI port and the device’s case has been certified with military standard ruggedness.

WiFi ac dual band and MIMO is here, too, plus Bluetooth 4.2, LTE and a fingerprint scanner. The device offers up to 15 hours of battery life, has a 14 inch screen and gets the same 16 GB of RAM, up to 1 TB storage and Core i7 CPU as the Carbon X1. Prices start at $1889.
