New Xiaomi Mi Notebook 2019 Leaked in GeekBench, With Intel Core i5 CPU

By Radu Iorga

Xiaomi is always expanding its product lineup and for the past years, they’ve become a trustworthy name, even in the laptop area. Now they seem to be prepping a brand new laptop, part of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook series. It has just leaked in GeekBench, so let’s check it out.

We don’t know much about the size or other specs, not even the diagonals. What we do know is that it’s going to rely on the current gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor, a 2018 quad core CPU, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM. The device runs Windows 10, which is no surprise and we expect the usual MacBook-style or Huawei MateBook-style design.

One thing that would be nice this time around would be an European keyboard. The scores in GeekBench look pretty solid, between the 4412 points of the single core sub test and the 12.414 of the multi core one. In 2018 Xiaomi launched a bunch of notebooks, including Core i3 cheaper versions. They even have gaming laptops out and also Core i7 alternatives.

They’re covering all bases, except for maybe business laptops. Expect metal cases, silver, rose gold and gold versions, perhaps even some more solid graphics cards as time passes.

Chuwi AeroBook is a 13 Inch Laptop with Core m3 CPU, Priced at $399

By James A.

Chuwi has been using crowdfunding quite a bit for its latest products, including the Chuwi AeroBook. The device is up on Indiegogo right now and it’s looking mighty appealing at $399 and up for a Core m3 CPU.

This is a slim and light laptop with a 13.3 inch screen, that feels like a very lite version of a MacBook Air. It’s got the Full HD resolution and an Intel Core m3-6Y30 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage (at least). The retail price will be $499, so the $399 is a special offer. The units ship from April and design-wise they feel a bit like a Huawei MateBook or an ASUS VivoBook.

There’s a 16:9 aspect here and the bezels are reasonably narrow. The CPU used here is a 6th gen Intel Core m3 Skylake from 2015, so it’s not exactly a powerhouse, but it beats the current Celeron and Pentium Gemini Lake CPUs. Aside from the 128 GB of eMMC storage you can also add an extra SSD. There will also be 256 GB and even 1 TB models.

We’ve got a backlit keyboard here, a 38 Wh battery and two full sized USB 3.0 ports, as well as a micro HDMI and audio jack. We don’t forget about a microSD card reader and large touchpad. Everything crammed into a 2.77 pound heavy chassis.

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.
