LG Debuts New Laptop That Combines Tablet and Notebook Features: LG Gram 2 in 1 debuts in USA, Korea

By Radu Iorga

After some teasing and presentations, LG’s Gram 2 in 1 device became available today in USA and South Korea. The machine is supposed to be a Lenovo Yoga contender and comes with a rotating screen. It’ll be priced at around $1600 and that’s just the starting price.

The product has already reached Best Buy over the past week, apparently. It combines a 14 inch Full HD IPS display with a laptop’s body. It can rotate up to 360 degrees and it offers touch functionality. The laptop also makes use of a Wacom stylus, letting users do drawing, write by hand and tweak gradients and directions.

4096 levels of pressure are available here. LG Electronics may have used a 14 inch diagonal here, but they’ve implemented it on a format suited for a 13.3 incher and the whole thing weighs 1145 grams. The device has an Intel 8th gen CPU, a slot for SSD storage, the latest DDR4 RAM and a fingerprint scanner within the Power button.

LG Gram 2 in 1 also has the appeal of the “military specifications”, which make it more rugged than the norm. It can take shocks, dust, high temperature, vibration, salt and more. The device comes in a config that involves the Intel Whiskey Lake Core i7 CPU, 512 GB of SSD and 16 GB of RAM. It’s also pretty light at 1.15 kilograms, compared to the MacBook Air 2018 even.

Microsoft Unveils 7 Affordable Laptops for Students, Classroom Pen

By Radu Iorga

This week is all about education and you may have noticed a few big laptop makers unveiling their devices. Well, Microsoft is no stranger to this, so it pushes forth 7 affordable laptops for students in order to fight the Chromebooks. They also debuted a new type of pen, the Classroom Pen.

The latest devices announced by Microsoft are made by Lenovo, Acer and Dell. There are 3 Lenovo laptops, 3 Acer ones and one Dell newcomer. They obviously run on Windows 10 and I expect some serious discounts for schools.

Here’s the list of new products.

  • Lenovo 100e
  • Lenovo 300e (2-in-1)
  • Lenovo 14w
  • Acer TravelMate B1(B118-M)
  • Acer TravelMate Spin B1 (B118-R/RN)
  • Acer TravelMate B1-141
  • Dell Latitude 3300 for Education

Lenovo 300e is a 2 in a 1 machine, the most versatile of the package and it can turn from notebook to tablet and viceversa. It also has a stylus built in. It also works with a no 2 graphite pencil apparently, the stylus feature. The price ranges for the new products are between $189 and $300. Microsoft claims that all new laptops ship with the S Mode enabled, meaning you’ll get a version of Win 10 that doesn’t let pupils install apps.

 

Microsoft also updated the Teams environments, with mobile grading, Turnitin integration and Grade Sync. There’s also MakeCode integration and Assignments has been bumped up. Grade Sync automatically sends grade from Teams assignments to the teach system. Turnitin will scan the works of students and the web for plagiarism.

Another novelty is the Microsoft Classrom Pen, a more resilient stylus meant for classroom use. It’ll be available in February in 36 markets and it’s envisioned as a Surface Go companion. The price is $40, but these are just sold as 20 packs, so you need to buy them in bulk. The Classroom pen has a hardened tip, in order to make it more durable compared to a regular stylus, plus there’s a replacement tip in the package.

The pen comes with two buttons, working as right click and erase. The accessory is powered by an AAAA battery. Expect optimization for the Surface Go slate, but it also work with other devices from Surface Pro 3 upwards.

HP Debuts New Chromebooks With Intel Inside; Meant for Education, Military Certified

By James A.

HP didn’t have enough with the announcements it did at CES 2019, so it came up with even more products, this time part of the Chromebook series. The company unveiled new Chromebook units with Intel CPUs inside and meant for education. The new models came ahead of the BETT education conference.

One of HP’s new products is the Chromebook x360 11 G2 Education Edition and we also saw debuting the Chromebook 11 G7 Education Edition. The new Chromebooks are resilient and rugged, being MIL-STD-810G certified. The idea is that they’ll be handled roughly by the students and have to take a beating or two. The specs are pretty much the same for both models.

They feature Intel Celeron N4100 CPUs, up to 8 GB of RAM and up to 64 GB of eMMC storage. There’s an 11.6 inch display in the mix, a touch enable panel, with a 1136 x 768 pixel resolution. There’s also USB Type-A connectivity, two USB Type-C ports too and USB 3.1 Gen 1, with support for up to 5 Gbps in data transfer speeds. HP Chromebook 11 G7 EE is pretty similar to the previous Apollo Lake models and it comes with a 180 degree fold flat format.

 

Bluetooth 5.0 is a welcome upgrade and other specs include a microSD card slot, a pick and spill proof keyboard and some Linux app support. It all weighs 1.33 kilograms. HP Chromebook X360 11 G2 EE also offers an optional digitizer and HP Wacom EMR stylus. This one’s storage starts at 32 GB and the weight is 3.24 pounds.

Both models will be available come April.

CES 2019: Huawei Introduces MateBook 13 Laptop and MediaPad M5 Lite Tablet

By James A.

Huawei was present at CES 2019, but no phones were seen. Instead they brought on a tablet and laptop: MediaPad M5 Lite and Huawei MateBook 13. The slate was already showcased internationally, but it only now reaches USA, while the laptop is pretty much a MacBook Air rival.

Huawei MateBook 13 is a 2.86 pound laptop with a 13 inch screen that offers a 2160 x 1440 pixel resolution. It’s a slim laptop with a large trackpad and a keyboard that can take a few spills. It has a starting price of $999 and inside we find an 8th gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor (Whiskey Lake), as well as 256 GB of storage and integrated graphics.

There’s also a Core i7-8565U version with 512 GB of storage and also adding an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU, priced at $1299. Both versions have 8 GB of RAM and a battery that should offer around 10 hours of video playback. There’s also a fingerprint reader here within the Power button.

 

Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite is a new tablet from Huawei, well not exactly new, but new in USA, where it hasn’t been available. It’s got a 10.1 inch screen, 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage, plus a starting price of $299. There’s an USB Type-C port on board, plus an audio jack and there are 4 speakers in the mix with Harman Kardon certification.

Specs include a Kirin 659 CPU, a 7500 mAh battery and Huawei promises 13 hours of video playback time.
