Chuwi Ubook 2 in 1 Tablet Ready for Debut, Priced at $400; Debuts on Kickstarter Soon

By James A.

Chuwi is at it again in 2019, with a new 2 in 1 tablet, that will go as high as 1 TB of storage. It’s called Chuwi Ubook and it’s priced at $400 and up, plus it packs a 11.6 inch Full HD screen. We also have a built in kickstand, shaped like the letter “U”. Let’s see what it sports.

There’s an Intel Core m3-6Y30 processor inside, together with 8 GB of RAM. The Chuwi Ubook will be available via a Kickstarter campaign, that will begin on February 1st. the starting price could even be less than $400, according to sources. Well, at least during the crowd funding. The entry level model has a 128 GB SSD and the higher end unit goes to 1 TB of SSD.

Chuwi Ubook offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and it has connectivity options like micro HDMI, USB Type-C port, two USB Type-A ports, stereo speakers and a microSD card slot. Inside there’s a 30.4 Wh battery, which should offer plenty hours of fun (9.5 hours on paper). The detachable keyboard has backlit keys and a spill resistant coating.

I see there’s also stylus action and the design is rather elegant, reminding me of the older gen Surface Pro models. It runs on Windows 10 and has 760 grams of weight.

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.

CES 2019: Samsung Debuts Notebook 9 Pro, a Premium Convertible Laptop + Notebook Flash Budget Model

By James A.

Samsung brought a bunch of new laptops at CES 2019, including a budget offering dubbed Notebook Flash, plus the premium model Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. That one is a premium convertible and both are detailed below.

Samsung Notebook 9 Pro is a 13.3 inch screen machine, with a convertible format and a full metal design. Inside there’s an Intel Whiskey Lake processor and the laptop packs a touchscreen display and a 360 degree hinge. Sammy put on it stereo 1.5 watt speakers, a backlit keyboard and an Intel Core i7-8565U CPU, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of PCIe NVMe SSD.

A 55 Wh battery also makes the cut, plus a bundled pen with over 4000 levels of pressure sensitivity. There’s no shortage of connectivity options, like two Thunderbolt 3 ports, one extra USB Type-C port and an audio jack. To that we add a microSD card slot and the obvious WiFi and Bluetooth. It all weighs 2.84 pounds.

 

Then comes the plastic and Intel Gemini Lake totting model Samsung Notebook Flash. There’s a 13.3 inch screen on board, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of eMMC storage. It weighs around 3 pounds and measures 0.67 inches in thickness. There’s a Full HD resolution here, a fingerprint sensor and CPU options are Intel Celeron N4000 and Pentium Silver N5000. The round buttons below remind me of Google’s Pixel Slate keyboard.

Connectivity is the following: two USB Type-C ports, an USB 2.0 port, HDMI, audio jack and WiFi ac. There’s also microSD and a 39 Wh battery. Sadly there are no prices or launch dates for either model yet. Both run Windows 10 Home.

Huawei debuts yet another MacBook-looking laptop: The $999 Matebook 13

By Valentina Palladino

Valentina Palladino

If Huawei’s Matebook X Pro was its answer to Apple’s MacBook Pro, the new Matebook 13 is the company’s answer to the MacBook Air. At CES, Huawei introduced a new series into its laptop line, and its flagship is a 13-inch Ultrabook that borrows just as much from its premium Matebook X Pro as it does from Apple’s revamped thin-and-light notebook.

The Matebook 13 resembles a slightly shrunken version of the Matebook X Pro, with a satin finish on its aluminum alloy body and diamond-cut edges. Since it’s a 13-inch device, there’s less space around the keyboard than there is on the Matebook X Pro, giving the keyboard and trackpad area a similar look to Apple’s MacBook. There’s not a lot of space on the sides of the keys, and the trackpad is a bit narrow, but Huawei did include its combined fingerprint reader and power button at the top-right corner of the keyboard.

Samsung sticks Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU inside new Odyssey gaming notebook

By Valentina Palladino

Samsung

Samsung is making news at CES 2019—but not for an obvious reason. The Korean manufacturer announced its first new gaming laptop in quite some time: the Samsung Notebook Odyssey. While Samsung has made gaming devices with the Odyssey name, this new notebook appears to compete with similarly powerful and portable gaming PCs from the likes of Acer, Alienware, and Razer.

Most noteworthy is the graphics card inside the Notebook Odyssey: the new Nvidia RTX 2080. Nvidia just announced these new graphics cards, which will come to at least 40 laptops soon. The RTX 2080 and RTX 2060 cards promise big performance and efficiency gains over their GTX counterparts, with the RTX 2080 serving up 20 percent more performance when compared to the GTX 1080 GPU. They also bring ray-tracing abilities to the PCs they power, a process used in films to make live-action graphics look hyper-realistic.
