Microsoft Surface Book 2 might just be a regular notebook

Microsoft Surface Book 2 might just be a regular notebook

If you were planning on someday trading in your Surface Book for its successor, better hang on to that 2-in-1 computer. It might become a piece of history now. Although the quirky notebook has its fair share of critics, the Microsoft Surface Book was still generally received with thumbs up. It, however, didn’t exactly sell as well because of its high price tag. And so Microsoft will supposedly cut down costs with the Surface Book 2 and it does so by cutting out the device’s most distinctive feature.

Don’t buy this new Surface Book

Don’t buy this new Surface Book

Microsoft has quietly added a new Surface Book to its line-up, but even with higher performance it's hard to recommend the $3,000 2-in-1. Unlike the original Surface Book reveal - and, indeed, the addition of the Surface Book with Performance Base to the range back in October last year, this new iteration has raised nary a peep from Microsoft. That's despite it having some of the highest specifications we've seen from the hybrid 2-in-1 to-date.

2-in-1 detachables could improve PC market, says IDC

According to market analysis experts IDC, the popularity of detachable tablets and convertible notebooks is still strong, despite a decline in shipments last quarter. In fact, it predicts that this category could actually slow down the still ongoing decline of the overall PC market, at least by 2021.

Google-branded “Pixel” laptop not in the plans but possible

Google-branded “Pixel” laptop not in the plans but possible

Once upon a time, Google’s branding scheme in the computing space was simple. It used “Nexus” for smartphones and tablets and “Pixel” for Chromebooks. Today, however, we have a Pixel C Android tablet, a Google Pixel phone and, ironically, no Pixel Chromebook in sight. At least not on Google’s store. And that isn’t by accident. In an interview with journalists at MWC 2017, newly-minted Google SVP for hardware Rich Osterloh revealed that, now that the Pixel Chromebooks have sold out, there are no plans to put out more Google-branded laptops. At least for the foreseeable future.

Porsche Design BOOK ONE 2-in-1 out-hinges Surface Book

Porsche Design may not be the first company you'd think of to make a Microsoft Surface Book competitor, but the Porsche Design BOOK ONE is no simple 2-in-1. Revealed at Mobile World Congress 2017 today, the BOOK ONE promises the sort of high-style, high-performance computing that someone with a Porsche 911 key on their keychain might want.

GPD Pocket is a 7-inch Windows 10, Ubuntu “laptop”

GPD Pocket is a 7-inch Windows 10, Ubuntu “laptop”

GPD, short for GamePad Digital, is a strange beast. More known, in small circles, for its Android-based gaming handhelds, the China-based company last year dabbled in crowdfunding to get GPD WIN, a Nintendo DS-like Windows 10 handheld, out the door. That campaign, those successfully funded and, to some extent, delivered, the campaign received mixed reactions, some of them very vocal, in a negative sense. That hasn’t stopped GPD from trying again and dreaming bigger, this time with the GPD Pocket that’s aimed at more “fashionable” serious workers.
