Time Once Again For a Video Worth Sharing: Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, 15.6 Inch Notebook

By Tim

We now have another review of the Mi Notebook Pro 15.6 inch notebook (okay you purists, laptop) This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTechReviews and as usual I highly recommend subscribing to his YouTube channel!

Sure we have had quite a few reviews on this one, but what the hell, one more full review is better than one too few.

This is a premium notebook with high end specs and considering the price, is a much better deal than many other high end  notebooks.

So all that being said, I will mention that you can find the other reviews I have posted by using the search function here or simply by selecting the category of videos on the left side of the screen if you are on a PC, so now let us get to the video…

You can find this product at this link.

That is all for now,

Tim

Surface Book 2 review: Monster performance, but lightning hasn’t struck twice

By Peter Bright

Introduced a little over two years ago, Microsoft’s Surface Book was the hybrid laptop that I had long hoped the company would build. Like the Surface Pro, it worked as a true standalone tablet, but it had the all-important stiff hinge, making it suitable for use on your lap in a way that the Surface Pro’s kickstand and Type Covers never really supported.

The Surface Book was not just a useful form factor; it was also something of a technological showcase. Other hybrid designs I’ve used, such as the ThinkPad Helix, had clunky mechanical linkages between the tablet portion and the base. The Surface Book boasted a clever software-controlled system. The fulcrum hinge design, which helped keep the device balanced when the screen was open, is elegant and visually striking.

And to top it all off, the Surface Book came with an optional discrete GPU, with the GPU housed not in the tablet part but in the base. While we’ve seen many systems with switchable graphics—using the low-power integrated GPU unless you’re playing a game or similar and need the full power of the discrete chip—having the discrete GPU be in a separate component was an exciting twist.

Hands-on with Microsoft’s high-end Surface Book 2

By Frederic Lardinois

Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 is the most powerful mobile Surface device yet. It easily blows away the Surface Pro, Surface Laptop and, of course, the old Surface Book. It’s also one of the odder devices in the lineup, though. It’s not just a Surface Pro with a rigid keyboard. It’s a relatively heavy base with a powerful processor and graphics card and a big battery… Read More

Today’s Video Worth Sharing, Gaming on the Xiaomi Mi NoteBook Pro With The Core I7-8550U And 16 GB RAM

By Tim

Previously we had the full review of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, 15.6 inch notebook and it is a very nice unit. Today’s video is once again from Chris over at TechTablets and covers the gaming performance on this device.

You can also find a review on the Core i5 version right here.

As I have stated many times, I don’t give a damn about gaming, but I do realize that many folks do and therefore I am sharing this video.

This one can be found at Geekbuying for about $1130. Over at Gearbest it is running a bit more.

That is all for now,

HP Snapdragon 835-Based Laptop With Windows 10 Leaks Out; Benchmarks for Other ARM Win Devices Disappoint

By Radu Iorga

Two major pieces of news dominated the headlines today, both related to Windows 10 on ARM. One has to do with a HP laptop that sports a Snapdragon 835 and was leaked and listed and the other has to do with benchmarks already done on a Qualcomm/Windows platform. And sadly the results are not impressive.

First things first! We know that HP was joining the ranks of ASUS, HP and Lenovo, also making a Snapdragon 835-based Windows 10 laptop. Now we’re getting closer to that release, according to a mention on HP’s site. A mystery Snapdragon 835 HP device dubbed “2US29AV” has popped up on the HP Care Pack Services page. The listings have been deleted in the meantime, though.

Two versions were discovered and previous leaks also talked about a 4 GB RAM/128 GB UFS storage setup and one with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB UFS. We’ve previously heard that Lenovo was supposed to open the floodgates, launching the first Snapdragon 835 Windows 10 device next month. HP may also have its devices ready by then.

 

Now as far as the other piece of info goes, leaked benchmarks for a mystery ARM-powered Windows 10 device are underwhelming to say the least. The device that appears in GeekBench is listed as “Qualcomm CLS” and uses an octa core processor, 8 GB of RAM and it’s clocked between 1.9 GHz and 2.2 GHz. The product seems to have been tested multiple times since June, with 32 bit editions of Windows 10S and Windows 10 Pro in the mix.

These numbers are far from impressive, with 1202 in the single core test and 4068 in the multi core one. The iPhone 8 by comparison more than triples both of the scores, so that’s crazy. Of course, it may be poor benchmark optimization since the Google Nexus and Pixel phones for example traditionally pull off very low scores because they run the freshest Android.

Even assuming performance is lower than expected, the promise of several day battery on a laptop is still fascinating.
