Samsung Notebook 9 Pen is a Brand New Notebook With an S Pen, Metal Body

By Radu Iorga

Samsung debuted this week a brand new laptop, one focused on productivity, as revealed by its S Pen. The device is known as the Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and it comes with a metal body and a pretty compact chassis.

This is a 2 in 1 laptop, one that promises the performance of a bigger and more powerful PC, plus a standalone GPU. It has an all metal design and it’ll come in two versions: 13.3 inch (Note 9 Pen 13) and 15 inch (Notebook 9 Pen 15). The second also adds an NVIDIA graphics chip. Both units come with Full HD resolutions, touchscreen displays and Samsung also provides an S Pen digital stylus.

It has half the latency of the older model and three different pen tips, that can be switched, in order to mix up the drawing feel. The stylus also has a special sylo, used to store it properly in the notebook’s body. It’s a battery free accessory and works with the Windows 10 Home handwriting recognition. Notebook 9 Pen has an aluminum body, with diamond cut metal finish and a special Ocean Blue color.

 

It should match the Galaxy Note 9 and even the S Pen will be the same vivid yellow color of the phablet’s stylus. The 13.3 incher is 14.9 mm thick and weighs 2.47 pounds, while the 15 inch version is 16.9 mm thick and weighs 3.44 pounds. Both of them come with a 360 degree hinge and a backlit keyboard. Specs include an 8th gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Intel shared graphics on the smaller model and GeForce MX150 GPU on the bigger one with 2 GB of memory.

There’s also a PCIe NVMe SSD for storage. On the connectivity front we get WiFi 802.11ac, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one USB Type-C, an audio jack and microSD. Security is ensured by a fingerprint sensor and a HD IR camera for facial login. Other than that we have AKG tuned speakers and a ThunderAmp smart amplifier. Both versions of the Notebook 9 Pen have a 54 Wh battery, which is supposed to offer up to 15 hours of runtime.

No pricing has been confirmed.

GPD MicroPC is a Small Laptop for Professionals, Priced at Just $299

By Radu Iorga

When we write about GPD, we usually cover their gaming consoles, which feel a bit like the Nintendo DS. Today we have something else, the GPD MicroPC, a small laptop for professionals, that comes at a very affordable price. It’s supposed to go for $299 and debut in 2019.

GPD is known most of all for its small Windows computers, some of them even fitting in pockets. They have the GPD Win line, plus the GPD Pocket line, of small Windows laptops. The new category they’re tackling is called GPD MicroPC, which is supposed to be the company’s most affordable Windows PC to date, plus the smallest niche product.

This is a clamshell, as you can see in the pictures, a small one, that comes with HDMI, USB and Ethernet ports. There’s also a Serial port and everything is crammed together in a very rugged package. This is not a PC for your or me, but rather for network engineers, sys admins and people who need those features.

The price tag should be $299 and of course there’s a bit of crowdfunding going on. It should start around February 15, 2019. The specs include a 6 inch display, Intel Celeron N4100 quad core CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of SSD storage. There’s also a backlit keyboard, microSD card slot and a 6200 mAh battery.

It weighs around 440 grams and it’s got a button for the fan, plus a hole for a wrist strap. Sadly, this will be a limited edition product, only available in 2000 units. In case there are any sys engineers following us, any chance of getting this device?

LG Details Gram 17, Gram 2 in 1 Device Ahead of CES 2019 Debut

By Radu Iorga

CES 2019 is coming in about 3 weeks or so and it should usher in some new products, including foldables. In the meantime some precocious companies like LG have already started announcing devices. For example, we have two new members of the LG Gram family: LG Gram 2 in 1 and LG Gram 17.

They have just been briefly detailed, but not fully specced yet. LG Gram 2 in 1 is a 2.5 pound convertible tablet/laptop hybrid, with a 14 inch screen, while the LG Gram 17 is an ultra light notebook that puts the ASUS ultrabooks to shame, albeit at a much higher diagonal size: 17 inches. It weighs a bit under 3 pounds.

We already covered these devices partially via a few leaks, but now we’re prepping for the real debut, as the press release has come in. Both newcomers feature slim bezel designs, 72 Wh batteries and fingerprint readers. They also have tough bodies, with MIL-STD 810G certification and backlit keyboards.

Both also feature Intel Core 8th gen processors 8 GB to 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB to 512 GB of SSD storage. LG Gram 2 in 1 relies on a Full HD IPS touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass protection and does Wacom input via a bundled pen. Connectivity includes a USB Type-C 3.1 port, two USB 3.1 ports, a microSD card slot and a HDMI port.

LG Gram 17 comes in dark silver or white and measures 0.7 inches in thickness. It has a Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C port, 3 USB 3.1 ports, a HDMI and microSD. There’s also a 2560 x 1600 pixel IPS display with a 965 sRGB color gamut. In spite of being so light, this device is actually big enough to also offer you a numeric keypad on the right side of the keyboard.

Tonight’s Video Worth Posting: Slates As a Laptop PC Is Not A New!

By Tim

You are an idiot if you don’t go Bluetooth

Today’s subject might be a shock, but in truth replacing your laptop//notebook with a Tablet is not a new idea! I have been using a tablet for 2 years at work and it works great! Is it perfect?

Nope, but is it about $1000 cheaper than these less than desirable iPad Pro 2018 or Google Pixel Slate alternatives. Do not be fooled into wasting money on a new tablet to replace your PC Laptop unless you first consider less expensive alternatives!

Don’t Buy an Add-On Keyboard: https://youtu.be/cgeY8tJiFxs

I know that there advantages to the higher end tablets I am talking about such as the iPad Pro 2018, or Google Pixel Slate. They are very powerful, but for day to day usage a cheap tablet with a Bluetooth keyboard and wireless mouse (or Bluetooth  mouse) can get the job done!

The whole point of those heavy hitter YouTube channels is to get you to focus on the “latest” and usually most expensive tech. That gets viewers and that means revenue, no fault to them.

But I tend to focus on the fact that there are ALWAYS less expensive options out there.

So let us get to that video…

HP ProBook 400 is a new business laptop lineup with Whiskey Lake-U processors. HP seems to be set on updating its entry level laptop lineup and that’s why they came up with the HP ProBook 400 G6 models. Let’s check it out.

The series includes the following units: HP ProBook 430 G6, HP ProBook 440 G6 and ProBook 450 G6. On the outside, the devices look very much identical to the G5 predecessors.

Other connectivity options include an USB 3.1 Type-C port, an USB 3.1 port and an USB 3.0, plus a HDMI 1.4b port. Gigabit Ethernet is also here, plus an audio jack and SD card slot. A 45 Wh battery makes the cute, plus optional 4G LTE.

 

Moving on to the ProBook 440 G6, here we get similar specs, but a larger body. It all weighs 3.5 pounds, measures 0.7 inches in thickness and packs a 14 inch screen. The ports and battery are the same, but there’s an extra USB port in the mix, plus optional NVIDIA MX130 graphics.
